AstroConfusions !

Parashara enumerates the qualities of astrologer who can give accurate predictions :

  1. Expert in mathematics
  2. Must have toiled hard to gain proficiency  in grammar [science of sounds and words  ]
  3. Well versed in Law of the land .
  4. Intelligent
  5. Having complete grasp of geo political situation of the Land at the time .
  6. Having grasp of time zones ,directions and space .
  7. having conquered Senses. [ principled ]
  8. Fertile imagination , well versed in logic and adept at reasoning and logical inference .
  9. Uses his knowledge in accordance with treatise on astronomy and astrology .
  10. Truthful

Such an astrologer will never fail in his words .

Why so much of stringent qualities have been put on Astrologers ?

Astrology is a complex shastra ! It has many variants in practise . Each Practitioner has his own interpretation of shastra and consequently a new theory ! In the overall run to master astrology , if these theories are not carefully filtered , astrology remains a fascinating jugglery in the realms of statistics and probability !

Lets look at variants .

>To start with Astrology is science of Planets and its motion around earth and subsequently their impact on Human beings .

counterview 1 : Planets and its motion around SUN .

Implication : If Planets affect the humans then every object circling SUN should affect human beings so URANUS NEPTUNE and scores others should also affect human beings . so if a some effect is due to Neptune and if it is not mentioned in shastra that is because , astrology is still evolving and rishis of yesteryears were not adept in astronomy as much as NASA so they could not find Neptune etc and hence could only predict for NINE planets only . Now that NEPTUNE etc have been discovered , additional  results have been attributed . HOW ? trial and error !

Objection : Suppose if few more planets that are not yet discovered , if discovered later will change astrology ! The result that I am facing may be due to some unknown Planet not yet discovered but still we are trying to fix it to existing planetary configuration ! Isn’t it unscientific ! Oh I think its hard to say which planet discovered /undiscovered is currently responsible for my miseries ! No one cannot say it with authority ! WHo knows there dozen other RAHu ketus in system ? By the PARASHARA did mention there are may ketus in the space .

Oh ASTROLOGY is probabilistic science , its evolving ! Nothing can be said definitely !

> The Zodiac [BHACHAKRA]  is constant

counterview: Zodiac – BHACHAKRA is moving .

Implication :  Say sun moves in zodiac , lets say on Mar 21 xxxx Sun was at 00 Aries .

 So when Sun returns after one year on Mar 21 xxxx+1 . Is Sun at 0 deg Aries or Zodiac has moved ahead . so Which Zodiac should we consider moved one or previous one .

Counterview : Mar 21 occurs taking into consideration  moved zodiac . so the current position of SUN is new year .

No the position of planets should be calculated as per fixed zodiac . So  correction be made .

The above problem is classically known as AYANAMSA .

As the fixed zodiac and moving zodiac meet or overlap with common start points , such a point can be taken in recent times to fix a ayanamsa . Unfortunately scores of astrological treatises exists giving various points of coincidences of Nirayana and SAYANA bhachakra .

> Classic issue of Planetary motion : old treatises give Motion of Sun around zodiac in one year ie 360 deg  revolution in 365 days 6 hours 9 min 12 seconds . The actual figures in para and apara truti [ milliseconds etc ]renders the calculation to leave a residual year after year , which English calendars add as LEAP year day .

But Classics have ordered to use practical observations to rectify such differences arising out of accumulation of residuals . Let me be more elaborate ,

If we approximate Suns revolution time for a year to second , ignoring milliseconds etc , over 1000 of years , the exact position of sun will differ by few second min and hours and over few lakh years it may go off by days even .  instead of one leap day we should perhaps add two .

So corrections are necessary to these and hence Driksiddhanta should be used is one such opinion ,. Driksiddhanta means , physical observation of Eclipses and other astronomical phenomena to verify the calculations . and subsequently rectify the planetary calculations

Based on this dictum many Beeja sanskaras  have been suggested to arrive at accurate planetary positions .

Some have resorted to NASA based data to calculate Planetary positions .

Objections :

  • Much before NASA came into existence were astrologers not calculating the planetary positions ?
  • Were these astrologers not competent ?[ as far as we know yesteryears astrologers were accurate and mystique ]
  • As there were no telescopes and  space laboratories , how come the data of these astrologers given by rishis is so much nearer to the modern day speeds of the planets .
  • So when a dispute arises out of such calculations , should we resort to age old wisdom or recent experimentation we keep ever changing in theories and data .
  • Final does the acid test of accurate eclipse moment is achieved by any of the NASA or traditional or corrected calculations ,. Answer is NO !

Let me illustrate how these affect a human horoscopes !

case 1 ! Driksiddhanta  chart of a person X  Chart A 


navamsa  chart
sat in ascendant  
moon in second house
sun venus and mer in 9th navamsa libra 
rasi  chart
sun moon mer in ascendant  
venus in second house



Chart B with a different ayanamsa



chart b
navamsa position has considerably changed
sat moon in second house
sun mer venus in scorpio navamsa rendering malefic results . 



Chart C Same data but with traditional calculations


chart c where traditional astrology is used
all the planetary position in navamsa has changed .
with moon saturn in ascendant
venus in scorpio
sun debilitated
mer in sagittarius .
Jupiter in exaltation .


Three astrologers with different concepts would give three different predictions ranging from good , mixed to bad results for a the same person . In some typical cases One astrologer may declare a subject to be MANGLIK and other as NON MANGLIK ! Which one is correct ! Can one believe any of them ! IS ASTROLOGY TRULY A DEFINITIVE SCIENCE ?

Confusions of BHAVA :

Astrology is combination of bhava , rashi , graha .

Here a classic confusion arises , when a person is born in LEO 10deg . Does planet in 6 deg LEO belong to first bhava or twelfth bhava . that means IS BHAVA and rashi same or different !

  • Some people take BHava and rashi as one . ie IF 10 deg Leo is asc . The LEO is first house and Virgo is second house  so on .
  • yet some people think Bhava is 30 deg each and it starts from 10 deg LEO to 10 deg Virgo . so planets in 11 deg virgo onwards form second house , if any planet in 5 deg virgo it still is in first bhava . so bhava chart varies .  So venus in virgo is debilitated but it should give result of venus in lagna debilitated or venus in second house debilitated . first one gives health hazards owing to women , second one gives financial liabilities owing to women .
  • Yet some say , as sunrise is taken as visibility of suns half disc over horizon in the east .So 10deg LEO means bhava midpoint and bhava extends from 25deg cancer to 25 deg LEO . In this case planet in 26deg cancer happens to be in first house and virgo firmly becomes second house but any planet in 26 deg virgo will go to third house . 


Bhava chart example

bhava A

Bhava chart A
mars has moved from 3rd house to second
from RASHI
Rahu from 12 th to 11th
venus from 2nd to asc
jupiter from 11th to 10th .

There are  entirely different predictions

Confusion of Divisional chart !

Parashara has given 16 divisions of rashi chart to be minutely studied to give accurate predictions .

Whether divisional charts should be viewed or only varga signs be considered .

For example when analysing jupiter in rashi chart , only its varga signs in other divisions should be considered .

Should higher divisions be considered ?

Let us assume  birth occurs at 12 : 12 pm

the chart in Rashi changes a degree every 4 minutes , with a change in degree there can be change in planetary positions in bhava chart .

A chart in trimshamsha changes every 4 minutes only lagna changes .

A shashtiamsha ascendant changes every two minutes .

View one ;

See Rashi chart , look at various divisions obtained for each of the  planet and predict .

here most of planets have fixed amsha positions except moon which changes its shashtiamsha position every 50 minutes ,and navamsha position every 6 hours .

So Karkamshas in amshas are relatively constant even if birth time is erratic and can still give good results .

View 2 : divisional charts should be seen and houses in the divisional charts must be weighed before giving predictions . But With a change in birth time by two minutes , a shashtiamsha chart will be thrown off gear with planets moving from 5th house to sixth house in the span of two minutes and thus rendering the planet useless and malefic .

How confidently can we predict in such scenario . What is the guarantee that querist [ owner of horoscope ] is giving accurate time of birth .

Parashara has given four schemes

Shadvarga [6charts ], saptavarga[7 chart ] ,dashavarga [10 chart ],shodashvarga [16 chart ]

While this is good news for people who would be put off by just 12 signs and nine planets in astrology and say how can humanity be divided into 12 parts and predict . Here are 16 charts for a human being and this combination is unique for a birth every two minutes apart .

But confusion arises as to what is the relative importance of these charts , are they weighted linearly or nonlinearly . But Parashara surprises even more .

The weighted configuration are

Varga shadvarga saptavarga dashavarga shodashvarga result
rasi 6 5 3 3.5 body
hora 2 2 1.5 1 wealth
dreshkana 4 3 1.5 1 brothers
navamsa 5 4.5 1.5 3 spouse
dwadashamsa 2 2 1.5 0.5 forefathers
trimshamsa 1 1 1.5 1 evils
saptamsa   2.5 1.5 0.5 progeny
dashamsha     1.5 0.5 glory
shodashamsa     1.5 2 pleasures
shashtiamsha     5 4 complete
vimshamsa       0.5 spirituality
siddhamsha       0.5 Education
Bhamsha       0.5 strength
turyamsha       0.5 fortunes
khavedamsha       0.5 auspiciousness
Akshavedamsha       0.5 entirety
total weights 20 20 20 20  


Here arises a confusion , if the scheme changes why is it that weights of the divisions changing . some say in saptavarga its actually dwadashamsa which gets 4.5weight  and not navamsa .

The problem is if  a chart A has exalted planets in navamsha , its weight will tilt a planet favourable in shadvarga scheme , but becomes unfavourable in dashavarga scheme .

So how can a planet be favorable and unfavourable at the same time . These schemes give results in dasha bhukti  periods , so if an astrologer is considering only six charts , he may declare a planet good and healthy in a dasha whereas another astrologer choosing another scheme or perhaps going into depths of 1o charts may render the same dasha as useless .

What is the secret behind the schemes ?

Does that mean deeper insight into a horoscope may give lesser results than superficial analysis . What about the predictions given only on RASHI CHART as usually all astrologers do , It will definitely go off the mark .

SO what is right 16 charts , 10 charts or seven charts , or six charts or just 1 chart ?

Confusions in aspects Drishti :

Should drishti be taken from sign or longitudes ?

if signs are absolute then signs in seventh from a planet receives full aspects , if longitudes are taken then sign in eighth from a planet may also receive full aspect , then should we consider beneficence to eighth house ? with just a chart and no minute details of longitudes an astrologer will declare the planet in 8th as dangerous for longevity but longitudinal aspect will show increase in longevity !

Oh GOD what is right ?

Is there a drishti in divisional chart ?

View 1: how can there be a aspect in divisional chart , there is only one zodiac and planets in zodiac cast aspects drishti via rays , if subdivisions chat is erected and if it is said to have aspects  , then planet in Libra in amsha , and planet in Capricorn in Aries amsha , how can they aspect , how can rays of makara reach Libra navamsha .?

View 2 : aspects are not a ray phenomenon , it is equally debatable that a planet in zodiac can see selectively 3 rd house 10 house etc , if rays are responsible then rays must reach equally at all signs . Aspects are special phenomenon and hence  can be extended to even amshas .

Karkamsha specially looks into planets in different signs and good and bad aspects also count .

View 3: only rashi drishti should be seen in amshas .


Confusion with IShta kashta phala !

The planet is supposed to give shubha phala as per shubha rashmi :

view 1 : shubha rashmi is calculated as  [ square root ( Uccha rashmi X chesta rashmi )]

U= uccha rashmi rays due to exaltation to debilitation

C = rays due to motional strength

S = effective rays  [ which should always be less than 8 ]


View 2 :  If U is zero ie planet is in deep debilitation and retrograde 

then S = sqr root (0 * 60 ) = 0

ie the concept of NEECH BHANGA RAAJ YOGA does not exist as even if retrograde the planet in deep debilitation is still having 0 auspiciousness . This is against dictum so shubha rashmi should be average of uchha and chesta rashmi .

S= (U + C )/2

But this formula does not ensure the upper limit of eight for S .

Confusion confusion .

View 3 : why do we require ishta kashta ,? What are strenghths ?

Why should we use shadbala when Vimsopaka is there ? when analysing strength of planet should we use shadbala or just vargottama and benefic aspects in navamsa and rashi is enough ? does planet in debiliatation with good shadbala give more miseries or gives happiness ? A malefic with strength does it trouble more or gives good results ? A malefic aspected by benefic of lesser shadbala will it overcome bad result or add to bad result ?

When shadbala calculations itself takes care of aspects and associations of malefic benefics why additionally ishta kashta phala be multiplied in case of aspect of malefic and or benefic ? is it not repetitive exercise ?

confusion confusion

Confusions in Ashtakavarga

Should we include Lagna in sarvashtakavarga ?

Should total be taken from longitudes of planets or bhava of rashi ?

whether prastara ashtakvarga is contribution of benefic on rashi or benefic from rashi ?

Is Gochara important or ashtakvarga ? why sade sati to my friend is not a s severe as mine though we both are same RASHI ?

Will one get same results every 12 hours , 12 minutes  12 monthss and 12 years according to sudarshan dasa ?

Lastly the mother of all confusions !

Which dasha should be used and what is the definition of year .

Some say Vimshottari is best , some say kalachakra dasha is best .

But varahamihira never mentioned about vimshottari he used pinda dasha . Pinda dasha makes sense as it is individualistic to horoscope . and results are due to ashtakvarga which is again chart specific .

Do all the planets in divisional chart give results in dasha or antardasha ?

Whether all dashas have to be applied ? how can I know I am getting miseries owing VIMSHOTTARI or  Pinda or kalachakra ?

Finally what is my dasha as of now ?

If the solar year is taken i am running  MARS dasha

But if Lunar year is taken I am in Moon dasha saturn bhukti

Should I take 360 days dasha . then it is MOON dasha Mercury bhukti.

Okay let me rectify by the data , yes My son was born in xxxx date , with solar year it is moon jupiter bhukti ****** yes birth of son can happen in jupiter bhukti as jupiter is karaka for children ******************* yes solar year is correct !!!!!! WAIT A MINUTE

With lunar year  it comes to MOON SATURN  BHUKTI and PARASHARA says saturn bhukti gives birth of a son **********************

Oh God which is correct ?

As far as I know i was born on 15 oct , should I say my year begins and ends with 15 oct .

But we usually see in shastras birthdays of saints as on panchami navami , krishna astami is done on rohini nakshatra in shravan , so i should use 360 thithis as one year .

But then My birthday is never on 15 oct every year it changes every year .

So how can i say i am so much year old >

with 354 days a years , in 50 years I am off  [ 365 –354 ] * 50 = 550 days , WHEW that is two years behind , means , i may say 50 but i am actually  48 .

so my dasha is off mark .

finally a difference of  5 minutes in birth time will cause

moon traverses a 3 min arc in 5 minutes .

200arc minutes = 5 years maximum in venus dasha .

180 months / 200 = 9* 3 = 27 days .

so a difference of 5 minutes in recording birth time will give dasha difference of +- 27 days

An astrologer should safely say that two months margin of error remains in timing of the events  But he can never be accurate when all these confusions prevail in his mind . Ye MAN one can never be sure what is correct and what is not ? Its all intuition u see ! No scientific base ! Can you definitely say this result occurred due to jupiter in rashi in ninth house , or venus in tenth in dashamsa or perhaps , a exalted mars in chaturthamsa gave this result and why do you worry I said so it happened , See This astrologer can never fail ?


note : Readers would You go to any astrologer after reading this !!!!!!!!!

AS all the sciences , KALI has not left even VEDANGA to be tarnished ! Madhvacharya resurrected tattvavada from the Confusions of MANIMAAN adi daityas ! He gave precise hints in yati pranav kalpa , jayanti nirnaya and KRSIHNAMRUTA MAHARANAV  to lead us a steadfast Astrology !!!!1



5th House – Chiratputra Yoga [Vaman avatar]

  • When ascendant lord and fifth lord are in shubha rashi and and benefics and jupier ,venus and mercury are in fifth ,one will have a son after many years of penace[ chiratputra prapti ] .
  • When mars as lagnadhipati is exalted and saturn , sun is in eighth is aspected by benefics one will have offspring after many years of austerities.
  • Benefics in lagna , malefics in 2nd and 3rd , fifth lord benefic placed in benefic rashi will give son in a old age after many prayers.

King Bali was the son of Virochan [son of Prahlad] , He had defeated Indra and occupied the three worlds . In those days all the yagnya done were accepted by Demons in Swarga ,as INdra had fled. Seeing the plight of her son ,Indra’s mother ADITI decided to get him his kingdom back. She started praying Lord Vishnu ,for twelve years she performed PAYOVRATA . After 12 years of penace Vishnu appeared and gave her a boon that HE would be born to her as VAMAN and get her son INdra his kingdom back.

After some time Vaman was born to Aditi and Kashyap , He was accorded jatakarma  upanayan  etc by Bramha himself . Then Lord Vaman proceeded to Bali’s Yagnya .As he kept his feet , entire earth trembled and fire in the Yagnyashala extinguishes and Ritwij mantras misspelled .seeing this Bali asked his Guru Shukracharya ,what was the reason ?

Shukracharya said VAman is coming to take away your wealth and kingdom to give it back to Devatas , your oblations are hence not being accepted by Agni . Do not promise to give anything to Vaman. Bali says I cannot refuse alms to Lord or for that matter anyone during my yagnya .

Vaman appears before Bali , Bali welcomes Lord with arghya pada etc. He then pleads Hari to let know the purpose of his visit , Vaman asks for three steps Bhumi [land] dana . Bali agrees , So Vamana says if you have agreed then let the water from the kamandalu be poured onto my palm as promise . BALI prepares but shukracharya becomes tiny and obstructs the hole[mouth] of Kamandalu to prevent the fall of water . Vaman with a kusha[grass] clears the hole ,Shukracharya loses his eye . He comes out and speed away to a distant land for penace . water falls onto the palms of Hari

Instantly the dwarf  Vamana takes on a huge form spanning entire universe [This form is known as Trivikram ] and with one step spans the entire earth and with another he reaches and covers the top edge of Bramhanda . There remains no space in the universe for the third step .

This is achintyadbhut shakti of the Lord [ making impossible possible] Changing a form from small dwarf VAman to a huge gigantic Trivikram is an impossible task as change of mass and density in time cannot be instantaneous for material bodies. But Lord exhibits this quality instantly , As his foot reaches the edge of Bramhanda , his toes nail pierces the Bramhanda Kharpar , Outside Bramhanda is a layer of Shudhodaka [the original water ”  Apa ” one of the 24 mool tatvas , not the water on the earth which is panchabhutamaya  “toyam” ] This water as it touches ,adorns [washes is not a right word] Lord’s lotus foot  , it acquires the name of Haripadodaka [ In temples teertha is nothing but water that sweeps through God’s idol and collects at the feet ,this is very sacred everyone takes it with reverence as it is sanctified by touch of Lord’s feet] .

Here this water is touching not the idol but the Lord himself [ Hari -> Lord , Pada-> feet , Udaka -> water ] thus this is Haripadodaka and is more important and sacred ,shreshtha ,it flows like a river into Bramhanda , Chaturmukha Bramha realising the opportunity to accept this ,extends his kamandalu and collects the entire water ,rest flows into the swarga as GANGA If ordinary teertha in temples can wash of sins then Ganga can assuredly can cleanse one of Sins as Ganga is very sacred because it has come from the feet of the Lord. But it was all in swarga [ before bali there was no ganga in universe]. Afterwards it came to earth only when Bhagirath brought it through penace .

So there was no space left for third step , those who fail in fulfilling promise , Varuna captivates them , Thus Bali was tied down by Varun Pasha , Bali offers his head as the third step , Lord Steps onto his head forcing him to Patala , and gives back the KIngdom to Indra and other devatas , Killing all the demons.

Why did Lord not Kill Bali?  Usually We hear Rakshasas troubling Devatas and Vishnu appearing and killing the Demon . But in this case Vishnu appeared to ask dana , he did not uses Danda neeti . why?

Because Bali was Grandson of Prahalad . Prahalad never asked a boon in his life to the Lord. But Lord insisted to ask a Boon . Prahalad after much pursuing by Lord to ask for a boon asked Oh my Lord Narsimha let my offsprings never hurt or insult any Bramhin in their lives , and I ask your devotion to all  my offsprings and my father [whom you have killed now] ,for Rakshasa as we are They are bound to commit some mistakes. You [The Lord] forgives all the mistakes of devotee except hurt or insult to a bramhin. [Thus he ensured his  offsprings be saved from being killed by Lord]

Having given this Boon to Prahalad , Lord never killed Bali or Banasur etc.  Instead personally  protected him in Patala  and Promised him the seat of Indra in the next Manvantara.


5th House – Satputra The story of ASTIK

If jupiter as fifth lord is strongly placed and also sun is in ninth then one will have Satputra yoga.Satputra is the one who brings joy to the ancestors of both Father and Mother’s lineage .One whose birth is a meritorious and sets fortune among maternal and paternal relations.He is the one who will be a beacon lamp among the dynasty [kuldeepak] . The whole relatives would see a  sense of hopes in such progeny.He is the one who relieves the father of his Pitru runa and brings sanctity to a mothers’ womb. Blessed is a soul and its lineage where a Satputra takes birth. One such child can wash away the sins of 21 forefathers and 21 grandchildren generations .

  • A man when born in this world is born with Panch Runa[five debts]
  • Pitru Runa [ debt towards the father ]
  • Matru Runa [ debt towards the Mother]
  • Dev Runa [ debt towards Devatas]
  • Rushi Runa [ debt towards preceptors]
  • Bhuta Runa [ debt towards the elements /environment]

Pitru Runa gets cleared as a child is born to the Man .[he is free from debt of the father]

Matru Runa does not get cleared at all [ one can never repay what a mother does to his child . We are all ever indebted to a mother for having brought us into this world bearing all the pain and nourishing us selflessly]

Deva Runa is cleared by performing our duties as worship

Rishi runa is cleared when we make correct usage of our knowledge and teach it to an able disciple

Bhuta runa can be cleared only by proper use of materials made available to us by God ,whether it is fire ,water ,air , house utensils and grain and other objects .[By not polluting them and respecting them in its correct usage avoiding abuse and ill distribution]

These runa if not properly handled and cleared rebounces to us in every births giving us what we have returned. and snatching from us what we  have not returned earlier.

A satputra relieves one of Pitru runa .

The following story is one such in MAHABHARATH ,which shows how God readies us a remedy for our problems even before the root of the problem or its cause has taken birth.

This is  a story of Astik a learned bramhin ,whose birth was awaited by both the lineages of his Father and Mother with lots of hopes and anticipation.

Once there lived a bramhin named JARATKARU , who was not interested in worldly life .He after studying shastras decided to take up NAISHRUSHTIK BRAMHACHARYA . HE stayed only on air without food and meditated on Lord .He spent most of his time in pilgrimage and rivers and mountains.One day as he was roaming ,he saw a seven old men tied upside down to a branch of tree which was about to fall in a deep well below.The branch had only one string left and that too was being eaten by a worm.

Surprised Jaratkaru asked those holy men ,what is this sorrowful sight ,why are you all suffering like this.The old men said ,oh we are all a ancestors of a single race yayavar , we have no off springs except one named JAratkaru , but even he is not interested in family life and bent upon ending his life in penace .old as he has grown ,very soon our lineage will end ,this tree is our lineage we are ancestors ,this single string is the Jaratkaru and the worm is the time .which is eating away , this well is the hell that we all will fall , if there is no offspring for Jaratkaru.

Jaratkaru moved by his ancestors plight said ” Oh my Pitru I am that Jaratkaru , please tell me my immediate duty to relieve you all of this plight”.

The holy men said ” Go and marry a deserving girl for our upliftment” Jaratkaru said ” I shall not ask for the hand of the woman myself, Anyone who would come all by himself and give his daughter or sister unto me , I shall marry provided her name is also Jaratkaru like mine”.

Saying thus Jaratkaru roamed entire world but owing to his old age and ascetic like way of life none came forward to give their girl to him. Thus reaching the end of the world , Jaratkaru decided if fate had init a bride for him then He would shout thrice that “My ame is Jaratkaru and anyone having a girl by that name wishes to marry her to me ,can come and do so” if someone comes okay or else would go the ascetic way.

As he mentioned it twice The great Snake VAsuki appeared and said I am bramhin snake son of Kashyap ,my sister is Jaratkaru and beautiful and I would like to marry her to you if you have no objection to marrying a NAgkanya .

Jaratkaru accepted with one condition he will stay with her as long as she does not annoy him . If annoyed he will desert her and go away for penace.Vasuki accepted. Once when sage was sleeping in the lap of his wife , it was about time to sunset . Fearing lapse of karma of sandhyavandana after sunset , Wife woke him up for his duties. Sage in anger said ” He never lapsed in his duties , And Sun dare not set till he wakes up and complete his karma , NOt knowing this she has annoyed him and thus he would leave her .” Wife in grief said , it would not be right of him to leave her for no fault of hers. But atleast not before giving her a son. She asked ” is there a child in her womb ?” The sage said “ASTI” [there is ],he would be blazing like sun and Agni well versed in all shastras and vedas.

Vasuki and all took care of his sister and Astik was born and learnt Vedas under Rishi Chyavan. to the delight of all.

Why did GOD want a child to be born to a bramhin and a Snake? In this world child has extreme affinity to the relatives of the Mothers’ side . Their plight the child when grows up naturally tries to alleviate out of affection. Also a child takes on the qualities of his Father . So a child who would be as learned as a Bramhin well versed in all shastras and with affinity towards Snakes was what God created here .WHY?

Parikshit was son of Abhimanyu .King Parikshit ruled justly this world after Pandavas left .One day while he was hunting He saw a Kingly featured ugly man kicking a Cow . King immediately tried to stop him But The wicked man said “Oh King know me as Kali , my time has come I have asked you the permission to enter your kingdom” King resisted ,but when He found out that in Kaliyuga people would get punya easily just by chanting name of LOrd as ” Hare ram Hare Ram ram ram Hare hare , Hare Krishna Hare krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare” This punya would be equivalent to what would be got by doing Dhyana in Satya yuga , Yagnya in a Trtayuga and Pooja in DwaparaYuga  . Thus what is got in a 100 years Krita yuga and 10 years in Treta yuga and 1year in Dwapara can be got in half a day in Kaliyuga .

Thus seeing this one virtue of Kali and also compulsion to follow YugaDharma , Parikshita allowed Kaliyuga to enter ,but asked him to stay away from his kingdom and subjects except five places where there is ,1 Gambling 2 Prostitutes 3.Alcohol 4 Deciet    5 Gold .  As Parikshit was wearing a golden Crown Kali entered His crown and was on his head.

This resulted in bad company , King hunted a deer which went deep into the jungle , chasing the KIng reached the ashram of Uttanak Rishi . He asked rishi whether he has seen deer , The king was exhausted and hungry 60 years of age as he was.got frustrated as Rishi was in maunvrata and did not respond .King grew angry out of ego and frustration owing to presence of Kali [ one acquires bad qualities in bad company] , King felt insulted for not being given welcome by Rishi .He took a dead snake and hurled it around the rishi’s neck. Rishi showed no expression and king went away.

Rishi had a very bright son name Sringi he was all but 10 years of age  very much pious and given to study of vedas ,but highly short tempered. He was returning from his gurukul and on the way he learnt from his friends that his father was insulted by king with  a dead skin and his father did nothing to punish King . So Sringi took the water in nearby pond and cursed King that ” He would die by the bite of TAKSHAK [empowered by my penace ] within seven days. [ what was the penace ” Practice of Gayatri for two years “]

Rishi uttanak said ” king was  a just man by killing him this way he has deprived the citizens of a good king . He requested his son to divert the curse but Sringi refused and said ” my words would never go futile” So Rishi sent his disciple to King to let know of his fate .

King by then had kept his crown aside and immediately realised his mistake and after hearing from Disciple repented not for loss of his life but for his folly. He constructed a a big palace in midst of sea and  stayed there and asked Sages of a way to get MOksha within seven days . Sages advised him Bhagavat by Sage Shuka would emsure him Moksha . SO Bhagavat was recited for the first time in this world.

Takshak set out to kill Parikshit , on the way he met a Bramhin Kashyap by name , he asked where he was heading to , Kashyap said he was well versed in art of reviving dead by snake bite and that he would revive king Parikshit . Takshak said lets examine ,

He showed a tree and bit it ,the tree blasted into ashes by the poison . The bramhin chanted a mantra , onto ashes ,firstly it turned into seed then sprout and two leaves appeared and then a trunk and branches and whole tree was lush green again as earlier , also there was a man sitting on the branches , he also got restored . The man ran  away.

Seeing the power Takshak asked him why would he revive Parikshit whose longevity was indeed over by the curse of Sringi , Bramhin closed his eyes and after deep contemplation agreed with Takshak , Takshak gave him ample wealtha nd sent him away. There in the middle of sea all the routes were closed and bramhins were appointed to chant sarpa mantras to prohibit direct entry of snakes. Daily fruits were being taken to KIng , Takshak entered one of the fruits and as the KIng opened it HE came out and bit him to ashes and whole palace was set ablaze by poison.

The Son of Parikshit was child , he was enthroned and when he grew up JAnmaejaya son of Parikshit asked how his father left to heavens , The man on the tree survived by Kashyap narrated him story , Angry Janmejaya thought Takshak could have allowed KAshyap to revive his Father but out of fear that his name and reputation of fierce poisonous snake would get tarnished he has corrupted Kashyap , so he must be punished.

He summoned all his purohits and ministers , They suggested SARPAYAGA . A yagnya  was prepared for genocide of snake species. Swetaketu Pingal Moudgalya ,Chandbhargava  Jaimini all presided as sadasyas and HOTRI for the Yagnya . The Yaga began and as butter was poured with sacrificial mantras , crores of snakes fell into the fire , with stench and fat converted into a river of marrow of snakes . All the snakes fell one by one into the Yagnya Kunda ”

Takshaka took shelter of INDRA . Vasuki out of fear of loss of life called Astika to do something for their race. Astika pained by the deaths of maternal relatives headed for the Yagnyashala , he praised Janmejaya in  a very notable fashion comparing his yaga with that of SOMA VARUNA YAMA, Indra , Ajameedha , Ramachandra , YUdhisthira presided by Krishna Dwaipayana , Meanwhile Takshak was not coming due to Indras’ shelter , King was happy with the praises of ASTIK , he wished to give him boon on account of his knowledge of so many yagas and their presiders and  though of tender age and blazing like a sun and agni and having crossed the doorkeepers easily by his charm and tejas inside the Yagnyashala. He offered him a boon.

The sages stopped him saying Takshak has not yet come , Janmaejaya said to bring him along with Indra into the sacrificial fire. Indra too was getting dragged to Fire , Indra left Takshak , Takshak unconscious and drawn towards fire from heavens , was roling in the air as he was about to fall , King said I want to give you a boon a oh meritorious bramhin ask, ASTIKA said ” oh king let no more snakes be dropped into the fire “stop stop stop ” , King said ask any other boon except this , gold silver damsels , these three worlds kingdom everything dont ask me to stop , Astika refused , Sages of the yagnya said since this noble bramhin has asked nothing else his boon be given , simulatneously uttering STOP , Takshak stood still in air the whole world stopped . Seeing the prowess of the ASTIKA , King janmaejaya stooped the yaga , thus snakes were saved , realatives were saved Uncle Vasuki was saved.

The extermination of Snake race was halted by an able bramhin , who out of love for snake uncles and profound knowledge  of Vedas and mantras , forewent the wealth of three worlds and other gifts and saved the race of his mother and saved the ancestors of his Father.

Thus Lord Narayana showed that even before sarpa yaga took place he had already readied a remedy for it in the form of ASTIKA .

Pandavas lost father at a young age

  • Their births were questioned
  • They grew in jungle
  • They suffered murder attempts every now and then all through youth
  • They were denied a place to live
  • They were insulted
  • They were exiled
  • They wandered from place to place
  • They had to marry in disguise
  • They had to live in a broken house
  • They had to live separately from wives time and again
  • They bore children in anonymity
  • Their children grew without their presence
  • They were always war stricken
  • They faced poverty
  • They faced tough enemies
  • They had to serve others as unknowns .[identity]
  • Lost manliness
  • They were repeatedly spied ,chased and troubled
  • They lost all the children before them
  • They had to kill their own relatives
  • When they got kingdom they had none to share it with , only one grandson  of Arjun survived.
  • They reached swarga by walking entire Himalayas and shedding their bodies[death]during cumbersome journey .
  • All this when HImself Lord was with them by their side.

Can all this be called misfortunes.? Yet they never complained . Infact Kunti [Pandavas mother] goes onto say ” Oh Krishna give us only miseries every now and then , for it will make us remember you all the time and our miseries will definitely be destroyed by YOU”.

Kauravas had everything in this world that a soul could wish for

  • Parents fully supportive
  • Royal birth
  • Royal upbringing
  • Royal Guards[ Bheeshma Drona etc]
  • Royal friends [ Karna shishupala etc]
  • Obedient advisor [ shakuni]
  • Kingdom at young age
  • Riches of others easily got
  • Mild and patient opponents
  • Many wives and no separations
  • All relatives supported them [everyone wanted to marry their daughters to these and not pandavas or their sons]
  • Whole world leadership
  • All the world admired and obliged
  • Got everything he wished for[material wishes]
  • When in peak he shared his riches fame and wealth among kith and kin [ 100s in number ]
  • Body immortal except thighs
  • Died in battlefield and went to swarga while gandharvas showered flowers on him and a special aircraft[viman ]arrived to take him.
  • He never acknowledged Krishna as Lord .

Can this be called Fortunes ? Yet he always complained , He was dissatisfied , He grew jealous day by day . He could never sleep .He spent most of time hitting the statue of BHeema as practice. He was preoccupied by schemes to trouble Pandavas and they always failed. He was extremely unhappy all through his life .Gandhari [mother of kauravas] cursed Krishna that his clan be wiped just as her sons had been wiped out .

On the contrary Pandavas were as happy as in Moksha and lead a contented life as they never had any desires and were only preoccupied with service to Lord Sri krishna.


5th House,Siddhi and Arjun – The Savyasaachi

Siddhi is about executing things faultlessly . consider following scenarios

  • Astrologer A studies a horoscope and mutters some predictions recollecting from the few combination that strikes his mind
  • Astrologer B takes a paper pencil writes down some calculations refers few books and gives better prediction than A
  • Astrologer C has a computer and a very good software of astrology and an online predictive notes , he browses through a series of notes and gives perhaps even better predictions than B
  • Astrologer D looks at a horoscope closes his eyes and then after deep contemplation reveals startling incidents about the person . Every word he says is nodded in affirmation .
  • Astrologer E looks at the person even before he places his natal chart before Dr.E ,E starts smiling telling about the life incidents about the person as if he was visualising the whole thing .

What’s the difference between these astrologers? each has better siddhi than the previous one

.A has just  knowledge of astrology , B has deeper knowledge ,C has an aided knowledge ,D has siddhi .E has paroksha .

The level of expertise is greater in each of them than the previous one. so what is siddhi ?

  • Expertise depends upon the practice of the knowledge .
  • Knowledge that is not practiced is akin to a sword that has lost its sharpness and killer edge .
  • So when one practices his knowledge , knowledge itself offers better understanding to the student.
  • when knowledge is practiced with devotion tools become available to the student.
  • when practiced with zeal , one gets hold of advanced tools and also gets knowledge of its usage.
  • When one’s  mind is in unison with the knowledge by constant such practice with advanced tools one’s dependence on tools vanishes . This is Siddhi
  • When such expertise is put to the use of the mankind as a service to God , one attains the vision of the knowledge. |This is known as paroksha.

so is all this happening in a mechanical way with only one condition of practice ,practice and practice?Well both YES and NO .

Yes because  Practice is the important tool to gain siddhi .

No because it is not the only and sufficient condition .It should be accompanied with the grace of the abhimani devata of the vidya that we are seeking siddhi for.

What is the devata of Vidya ? Yes every vidya that we seek is presided by a devata . It is the grace of this devata that gives us proficiency .These devata are assisted by Vidhyadharas , these are celestial beings living in the sphere around 50000 yojanas above earth and are assistants of the Devatas. They bestow grace on the student who is relentless in studies. These give blessings just if you make an attempt to study sincerely.So you can get one level of expertise .

Chanars are another set of celestial beings that grace when one practices hard. These give special tools for upliftment of Vidya to a level of expertise.

Siddhas are celestial beings living around meru and bless with Siddhi to the devotee who considers his job as worship and practises day and a night .

All these are under the service of Vidya abhimani Devata ,who when completely satisfied by the relentless abhyasa of the vidyarthi grants him Paroksha [One can also attain siddhi by chanting the mantra of the relevant Devata for the Vidya]

When one surpasses his devotion he is blessed by Goddess Saraswati to attain Aparoksha , the divine Vision.

If there is a relationship between lagnadhipati and fifth house then the person will be Medhavi, Pratibhashali . When second lord ,fifth lord and lagna are all powerful and mutually related in kendra simultaneously attains 8 or 9 good amshas then one attains siddhi.

Arjuna was an ideal student . He was practising day and night Dhanurvidya ,without sleep . He practised to master the use of  the bow and arrow by both the hands [left and right] . Thus he was known as SAVYASACHI . Because of this dedication , Agni gave him GANDEEVA bow[tool] .

Gandeeva was actually used by Bramha , it was 220 quintals in weight. its string was so strenuous that its recoil would kill a 10000 warriors . it could dispel arrows at a speed 100000 times faster the normal warriors in the battlefield . Thus even before 100000 ordinary warriors could fasten their bows they were killed by the arrows of Arjun from Gandeeva . The arrows appeared automatically and infinitely on the bow string of Gandeeva. It made a thundering sound and lightning when pulled .Its string rejoined automatically when cut and regenerated when slit.

No human or devata could even lift Gandeeva , Bramha gave this Gandeeva to Shiva to kill Tripurasur , From him it came to Indra and then to Chandra and finally Varuna got it. Now this Arjuna being Indra himself could lift the Gandeeva by the grace of Sri Krishna.

Arjuna practised Roudri mantra in the dark caves on the INDRAKEEL mountain . There he spent six months without food ,water and sleep  and hence achieved the name GUDAKESHA . Shiva happy with his penace gave him Pashupatastra.

After Abhimanyu was killed in Padmavyuha due to Jayadrath using his boons . Arjun vowed to kill him before sunset next day or commit suicide by jumping into fire.

Dronacharya assures Duryodhan that he will specially protect Jayadrath from Arjun . So he creates shakataabja vyuha and  puts Jayadratha at the end of it in the last quarter , appoints Karna and Ashwaththama to specially protect him. He gives Duryodhana aYantra on his wrist to render his invincible in the middle , At the intersection he sets Shrotayudh [ who had a special weapon which would never fail but would kill himself if used on somebody who doesn’t fight ]and  Alambusa and HImself stands at the gate and entrance to avoid any lapses .

Arjuna enters the battlefield and after making a pradakshina to Guru he forces his chariot inside at a lightning speed , He knew if he fights Drona it would be sunset by then , so he takes a peripheral route . soon he is attacked by Alambusa . Ghatotkacha gives him covering and takes on Alambusa in an aerial fight . Soon Arjuna confronys shrotayudh ,they fight a fierce battle , in an ecstacy he throws his weapon on Krishna , as Krishna is non fighting sarathi ,the weapon returns and kill Shrotayudha.

Duryodhana comes to fight with Arjuna, as Arjuna’s arrows does not hurt Duryodhan due to yantra , Arjuna decides to use astra ,Ashwaththama swiftly intercepts al the astras of Arjuna and both fight a day long battle.

Karna and Ashwaththama and Duryodhana  one after the other ensures a tough battle with Arjun and sunset draws near . seeing Arjuna’s words go in vain to save him Krishna creates a [TAMAS] by his maya , thus night engulfs everywhere on the battlefield .Ashwaththama and others stop the battle . Arjuna prepares for suicide , Jayadratha elated comes out of tent to witness the suicide of Arjuna. Just as Jayadratha is seen in the open , Shri Krishna orders Arjuna to Kill Jayadrath . Arjuna’s Arrow cuts of the head of the Jayadrath , [But Jayadrath’s Father had given him a boon that whoever throws his head down on the earth his head would blow off into thousand pieces] . Shri Krishna advices Arjuna to use Pashupatastra ,in such a way that , Astra releases arrows one after the another keeping the head high in air , till it falls into the hands of Jayadrath’s Father on the banks of river Ganga , where he was observing sandhya . As the head fell on the palm of the father , he suddenly terrified threw it onto the ground and simultaneously his head blew off into thousand pieces. Shrikrishna withdraws tamas and Sun is seen in the sky and every kaurava shook his head in disbelief , Bheemasena roared like a lion, Krishna blew Panchajanya shankha and Arjuna blew Devadutta Shankha[conch] All of the Pandava army knowing Jayadratha to be dead rejoiced , Such was the Vidya siddhi of the Arjuna – Savyasachi .


7th House – Chaste Wife -[Pativrata upakhyana]

  • If seventh is hemmed between benefics one will get good wife.
  • If 7th lord 7th house and venus are strong and aspected by jupiter one gets devoted wife.
  • If  sun is aspected by venus or mercury ,and 7th lord with jupiter ,the wife will be chaste and virtuous minded
  • seventh occupying quadrant ,and in a benefic navamsa the wife will be a paragon of chastity.

Shukamuni once asked his Father Shri VedaVyasa , ” kindly tell me the most interesting and surprising incident in this world that would bring lots of punya having listened to and destroy all the sins”.

Vedavyasa says”oh son listen to the conversation that once took place between a Bramhachari and a Pativrata

Once there was a bramhin named Kashyap ,well versed in all the vedas and neeti. He had the clear understanding of all the shastras and the meaning they conveyed, and and imparted it to many.He was completely immersed in his Dharma , performing agnihotra ,pitrukarya atithiseva and meditation of  Lord Narsimha .

He had a equally pious and very chaste wife named Savitri ,she was very dear to him because on account of  her excellence in household work she had attained the Paroksha Gyana and he was very proud of her.The very brilliant and learned couple lived happily in the Madhyadesha ,in a village named Nandigrama.

In the vicinity there lived another bramhin named YagnyaSharma ,highly learned in many fields alongwith his wife named Rohini.Excellently qualified Rohini gave birth to a male child to the happiness of the husband, who ,after having a holy bath , performed the jatahasamskara to the child .On twelfth day after the punyavachan ,he named him as “DEVASHARMA”

in the fourth month he took him a temple as nishkrama samskara ,sixth month he performed annaprashana and by the year end he performed choodakarma. In the eighth year he completed vratabandha. After completing upanayan samskara  ,devasharma without fault started his vedadhyayan . As he completed his first veda, his father died .

Having lost in grief both mother and son completed the last rites with difficulty , Devasharma in the company of sadhus thought of taking sanyasa and leaving his bereaved mother and after a bath in ganga started living on the banks of the river calmly chanting the japa and vedas. He was living by bhiksha in the nandigrama .

One day as he was drying his clothes ,two birds caught hold of his clothes in their beak , Devasharma tried to scare them , they after excreting on the clothes flew away , Bramhin gave an angry glance to the two flying birds , both birds burnt down and fell on the ground.

Devasharma was very surprised at his new found power on account of vedic study.completely arrogant of his power ,he went into the village still in an elated and excited state of mind.  Slowly he came to Savithri’s house and waited for the BHiksha . Savithri readied for the bhiksha just as her husband came by , she setting aside the bhiksha , offered a seat to her husband and washed his feet with warm water , having satisfied her husband ,she came back to Devasharma and offered him bhiksha .

The delay made devasharma angry and he glanced at her angrily , nothing happened , he glanced at her again and again . Savithri smiled and said ” oh Bramhin of a short tempered nature , I am not those two birds lying dead on the banks of the river ,whom you have burnt down, if you wish for bhiksha kindly take it” .

Surprised by her ability to know the things that have happened far away from her house ,he started thinking what could have made her amass so much power[shakti] , he after accepting the bhiksha , asked her ,” oh punyavati, kinldy tell me the truth as to how you have the knowledge of things that have happened far away at a distant place from your place of living”

Savithri said ” Oh bramhin listen to my words carefully ,I am always engrossed in my dharma , For  a woman , service of the husband is only primary dharma[Patiseva] ordained by God . oh intelligent and learned bramhachari , I am completely devoted to my husband and his well being I do this as my duty and worship and do not have interest in any other avocation except the means to make my husband happy .I do not get into any act that is not liked by him or not approved by him.Because of my swadharma nishtha ,i have the power of knowing things happening all over the world without actually having seen or hearing or reading about them.If you like to know sincerely then I have something more to tell you listen”

” Your father was excellent bramhin living only by unchhavrutti ,thus he was most purified being ,Having learned from him a Veda and having completed his last rites you have come here. Your mother is alone , unhappy ,miserable and widow , instead of looking after her ,you have deserted her come here to fill your belly daily in this village . One who has taken pains to give you a birth ,raised you , protected you and took care of you in the childhood ,you have shunned such mother in the name of Dharma.

What Dharma will you gain by deserting your mother drenched in misery and pain of separation of near and dears and roaming in the forests . Since you have ill treated your mother and caused her a pain , you are suffering from bad odour of the mouth .And because you have been taught by a illustrious father ,you have acquired the powers of tapasya. But oh sinner , what have you got by killing the birds unnecessarily .Your Tapasya has no meaning

  • One whose mother is suffering with pain and unhappiness [dukha] ,his life is utterly a waste and purposeless.
  • One who looks after his mother well with bhakti and vishvas[faith sincerity], his all karmas give good results
  • Those excellent among men ,who never transgress mother’s words , are worshipped in this and other worlds.
  • So you immediately go back to your mother and take care of her.
  • This is only the greatest dharma and tapasya for you .

After being advised thus by Savithri , devasharma  asked her to forgive him and further insisted on telling her about ” what should constitute his future course of action”

Savithri said” First go and protect your mother from succumbing to grief , Perform prayashchitta for killing the two birds and purify yourself . In the next street there is a bramhin named yagyasharma , his daughter will be your wife . If you go to him he will give his daughter’s hand to you in marraige. Live with her according to the dharma , you will beget a son worthy of your family. You will also live like your father by unchchavratti . After your wife would die ,you would take tridandi sanyasa . Having ordained in the yati ashrama and treading truthful path and prayer to Shri Narsimha , you would attain Vishnu Loka. If you believe in my words ,kindly go back to your mother”

Devasharma expressing gratitude towards the PATIVRATA ,hurriedly went back to his mother and having lead life as predicted by Savithri attained MOKSHA.

For a Man born on the earth protecting once mother is the greatest dharma and duty [ paramdharma ] One who follows and treads  this path of the Dharma , he will cut off the tree named samsara ,an  imprisonment due to avidya and agyana  and attain SHRI VISHNU LOKA ,thus said Vyasa to Shuka as per Sutas words to Bharadwaj .

Moon was married to 27 daughters of Daksha Prajapati, Dharma married another 10 of his daughters ,Kahyap married 13 daughters of the Prajapati. Kashyap spread the population all over the earth in a diversified forms and species.

Dashrath[Illustrious father of Shri Ram] had three wives ,Vasudev[ Father of ShriKrishna] had 24 wives , Pandu[Father of Panadavas had two wives].Bheemsena had 28 wives ,Arjun had 16 wives.

  • ShriKrishna had 16108 wives ,He remained on the earth for 105 years .
  • ShriKrishna had 10 sons and 1 daughter from each of his wives.
  • This means he had 1 lakh 77 thousand one hundred and 88 children
  • By logic [ if he has spent one day each with one wife to impregnate them ] he should spend at least 177188 days/nights just consummating his marriage.
  • He married 16100 wives when he was 23 years old. that means till he left earth He had lived only 365*82=29930 days
  • How can one beget 177188 children in 29930 days from 16108 unless one spends his day and night with 6 of his wives this way his whole day and night would be spent only among his wives all the 100 years with an average of four hours to each .
  • But even this would give him a child of about 1 month old at the age of 105 , but contrarily ShriKrishna had all the 177188 children quiet grown up by the time he was 60 years , this makes this feat even impossible .
  • Also Shrikrishna was known to have been very close to Pandavas helping them across many places quiet far away from the Dwaraka , also HE did many other leelas in different parts and finally he is known to have spent full 18 days in Mahabharath war ,that makes the count even less .[so the whole feat is humanly impossible]
  • So how was that possible.
  • Narada rishis had a similar doubt so he decided to inspect the love life.He went to each of the palace where his each wife was staying and there he found a Krishna living happily merrily in the company of his wife . This surprisingly was same at every of the 16108 palaces , at the same time HE was also found with the Pandavas , exclusively he granted time for his friends and other yadavas. wherever Narada went he saw Krishna .
  • Lord Krishna [Paramatma] is present in everyone’s heart and governs our action.
  • He is inside and outside this world [vaasudev] supporting this universe/creation .
  • He is the one who has shown entire bramhanda in his mouth to Yashoda
  • He is omnipotent all pervasive
  • He is infinite with infinite roopas.
  • So this feat of having 10 lakh progeny[sons and grandsons] is just infinitesimal compared to what he does in controlling entire UNiverse.[Jagadoddhara]

    Marriage Compatibility

    The compatibility between the couples should be based on Janma Rashi. The following kutas should be considered while deciding the marriage they are

    1. Rashyadhipa
    2. Nakshatra
    3. Varna
    4. Gana
    5. Rishi
    6. Pakshi
    7. Mriga
    8. Vedha
    9. Bhuta
    10. Rajju
    11. Vasya
    12. Yoni
    13. Ashtakavarga
    14. Chitta

    Of these Maitri ,nakshtra,gana,rajju,vashya ,yoni are very important. so what they represent .

    • Maitri[rashyadhipa] indicates friendship that would exist between the couples after the marriage . This involves understanding ,analysis ,feeling better ,counting on each other ,support etc that couple would be in a position to offer each other will be determined by Maitri.
    • Nakshatra will determine stree dheerghya ,that means it is the measure of closeness that a couple would feel or experience after marriage . Many a times it is seen a some people though in distant lands separated by miles still feel closer to each other mentally .Physical separation do not hinder them in loving each other and they don’t each other , time would have passed by in the measures of years ,yet when they meet again they would chat as if they had been together as always.On the contrary there are some who staying in the same house would be mentally apart ,they would never feel that each person is closer to the other the distant seems to be there in mind. Yet again some people forget each other the moment the other person is out of sight . Some carry them in heart even if the other has died long ago.
    • Gana shows the measure of compromise one would make for the other in the marriage.
    • Deva gana are known for giving and they are happy giving everything , they adjust and make room for the other partner.When marriage is between two devaganas ,it is complete with each person silently adjusting to he needs of other without expressing any pain ,the pain that does not exist and disappears with joy expressed by the other
    • Manushya gana is adjusting and compromises only when he needs something from the other ,at all other times he protests and expresses his anguish at the pressure that is being created by the others’ demands and needs. the other partners’ needs endangers his desires [such is the feeling of the manushya gana].
    • Rakshasa gana is ever demanding gives back nothing. He feels strange when someone expresses the need for sharing , though not sharing or adjusting himself ,asks others to make room for him and sometimes grabs it steals it to the discomfort of the other. His needs are paramount to him/her and others needs is invasion into his space.
    • when Devagana boy  marries manushya gana girl [ The girl will ask for the moon and boy earnestly will strive for it , even after getting it girl will keep saying why aren’t you excited ,look we are on the moon ,dont you think its wonderful , Dev gana will just admire her with a smile , and she would smiff ” aap to kuch bolte hi nahi”]
    • Manushya gana boys  marry manushya gana girls[ girl spots a donkey and says ” aji sunte ho aapka rishtedar ja raha hai “, snipes the boy ” namaste sasurji”]
    • Manushya gana girls marry Rakshas gana boy [ but they will be ever sobbing at their fates ,boy snipes ” woh pehli wali baat nahi rahi” ,girl says ” pata nahi kis kisko ghurte rehte ho”]
    • Raksha gana boys marry Rakshasa gana[ “dekhiye aisa kuch main hone nahi doongi ” ” tum boriya bistar bhandke ja sakti ho”]
    • Dev gana boy marries Rakshas gana girls[ ” boy ” hare Narayan eis sansar ke moh maya me mat pado priye”,girl ” Ghar me rashan khatm ho gaya hai “]
  • Rajju is the breath that flows constantly between the couples as they glance each other or come closer to each or whenever thoughts of each other crossover the minds. These breaths must be in a opposite direction for the boy and the girl. Eka nadi couples will always have wrong breath flowing and hence will always fail in responding to the stimulus of the other. When one will be thinking of something ,the other one would be caught napping or dreaming something else .
    • when a boy glances at the girl if they are at the time having opposite breaths there will be definite attraction between them , women will definitely glance back , when man touches the desired woman and breath flows through the right nostril then be assured woman will not resist him , he can be physical with his woman only till as his breath is in right nostril , the moment it changes to the left ,the activity stops . The ability to keep breath in the right goes a long way in amassing physical prowess. Nonetheless opposite rajju can always sustain the relationship and mutual attraction and sense of power exists all through.[the warrior class likes such relationships]
    • Children born to couples with varying breath patterns are healthier and stronger
    • Children born to couples with mismatched breath patterns are defective
  • Vasya is very important kuta , certain signs are naturally subservient to the other sign like capricorn can never say no to Pisces , there is natural vasya between the two signs , when vasya exists between the couples one will be very happy to boss around and the other will happy to have granted permission for such bossing.
  • Yoni is the method to estimate the sexual compatibility between the couples If yonis are matching , however different the views of the couples be they will never raise these issues during copulation . If yonis are mismatching then couples will spend most of the time in discussing their differences and inner thoughts rather then the actual act.Act remains just a formality to  declare  a cease fire . Most of the couples in todays’ era would like to keep marriage intact just because their yonis are matching. Thus among the majority this compatibility rates higher in keeping the marriage stronger .Couples agree to disagree/
  • Chittanukulyam sarvanukulyam , Couples hopelessly in love need not see any compatibility , if there is compatibility of minds then there is compatibility in everything.
  • Rasi on account of these kutas total upto 36 points , it is very rare to see marriages between such compatible stars. However an average of 18 points and above makes the marriage work . This is for the unintelligent. Intelligent must think and come to conclusion that while one cannot be completely happy with a woman he lives with , if he choose to count every virtue in her to his advantage , one must learn to live with the inabilities of the person we are destined to marry .The more we look at the positive aspects more compatible will be the married  life, If a woman is all adjusting then even if her horoscope does not match still she would make an excellent wife.

    Even if the more than 18 points match and the kuta which is of paramount importance to a woman or man is mismatching , they would be lamenting and cursing entire life each other or perhaps one would silently sob in the darkness of the night at his fate [ such things frequently comes out in the fight ,” pata nahi meri woh kaun si manhoos ghadi thi jis din inse shaadi hui” pata nahi teri ammi ne us din chay me kya mila diya jo main tumhe dekhke latto ho gaya”]

    even if you see 100 horoscopes you reject them on one count or the other [“dil me woh ghanti nahi baj rahi] Yet again when time comes you marry a person with all the same defects which you earlier scorned at.[ dimag ki siti baj gayi]

    Its true the mind is never under control to decide these issues when it comes to marriage. The great Dushyant when he saw Shakuntala , he had unusual wave of passion .But what he was seeing was a rishi kanya ,He was a kshtriya King , he felt   How come my righteous mind is getting attracted to a  Bramhin girl [rishi kanya] ,which is prohibited by the shastras. The whole day during his shikar his mind could not move away from the sight of the beautiful Shakuntala , but his conscience was teasing him to be a unworthy man. Gathering his senses , Dushyant concluded if at all I am a high born righteous man then my thoughts cannot betray me , this  beaytifull lass must definitely be born off th loins of a Kshatriya. To ascertain he goes to her maid and asks her the caste of the Girl from whom he is unable to take off his eyes , Priyamvada consoles him by assuring that she is a Kshatriya lass girl born of Vishwamitra and Menaka.

    Similarly when smitten by love for Urvashi Pururava says , ” My state is like that of a donkey following the female even after repeatedly being kicked and turned around and made fool off, donkey religiously follows the other one for a mate”.

    When Shantanu meets YojanaGandha and is totally shaken by her beauty , he repeatedly thinks why is it that his steadfast mind wandering towards her beauty and captivating body fragrance that spread to a 8 miles in periphery .Why is it that very thought of foregoing her is causing one’s soul to leave the body dead. why is it he unable to stick to  Dharma and uphold the right of the Devavrata to the throne. Shantanu was a yogi of highest kind , he had the power to die at will , He was the only blessed Man on the earth to have a wife from Devaloka retaining Devata body , all others had to forego deva body and acquire human body.

    Shantanu had controlled his mind but his inabilty [ As Srikrishna says in Geetha ” I am the desire in the humans “] was sensed by his Son devavrata and he took a vow of celibacy and became BHEESHMA .


    7th House -Husband

    In stree jataka[female horoscopy] ,the planet in the seventh navamsa or the lord of seventh navamsha decides the quality of the Husband.

    • if sun is in the seventh or sun is the lord of the seventh then the husband will be of  very tender body or quiet spoken ,mild man. He will be a very hard worker . [atimrudu ,ati karmi]
    • If moon be similarly placed or if seventh house is cancer in the amsha , the husband will be one who will hanker after other women , he will also look after his wife well , he will be kind hearted soft personality.
    • If mars is present in the seventh house the husband will be very loving towards women , he will be easily given to anger and rash personality.

    • if jupiter becomes the owner of the seventh navamsha ,the husband will be highly educated ,blessed with many good qualities , and will have his senses and under control , will never look at other woman .
    • If saturn happens to be lord of seventh then the husband will either be a fool or the age difference between husband and wife will very high. he will be  a old man. if it is ketu then he will be impotent .if with Rahu he will be already married to someone else.
    • If Venus is the lord of the seventh navamsha then husband will be very handsome and will be very fortunate person. He will have excellent attractive features and a pompous style and blessed personality.

    Amba was determined to Kill BHeeshma ,she undertook severe penace to shiva  to be born as man to kill Bheeshma . Shiva said woman cannot be born as Man ,however he gave her a boon to become the cause of death of Bheeshma. She insisted she wanted to become Man. Shiva said she would be assisted in becoming Man.

    Drupad prayed Lord Shiva for a son, soon Shiva appeared and said a son would be born . But a Drupad’s wife gave birth to a daughter , amused Drupad thought for a while , Shiva’s words cannot be futile , this must be some test of his faith.

    So he raised the girl child as a male ,he dressed her like a man and even taught her all the warfare and named as Shikhandi. When the child came of age , it was decided to marry the Prince[ss] . So neighbouring Kingdom’s King had a beautiful daughter , her hand was proposed in the marriage , Marraige took place grandly ,but later bride  found that Groom was actually a woman. Upset she left for her Parent’s House. Parent furious addessed Drupad [ Drupad said he has raised as  son and Shiva had told HIM that his child is male ] and agreed for a Angapariksha or war.

    Shikhandi fearing insult to her Father that night went deep into the forest ,deciding never to return . As she was contemplating suicide with heavy sobbing and cursing her destiny . Tumbur[ Gandharva ] was passing by ,He was cursed by the rishi to become a woman . He was also unhappy .But seeing the plight of the Shikhandi , he offered, He would lend his body [male] to her .But the problem is a female cannot control a male body , [but a male can take  a female body and control it and live in it] this is nature’s law. So Tumbur offered to control her body and she be just present in it[ Tumbur offered to be present in the manner devils possess the human body]

    Thus overnight Shikhandi acquired a Male body , she would desire , Tumbur would carry it out for her. She came back to palace , During Angapariksha , In laws were very happy to see a man for her daughter ,They scolded her for unusually doubting the groom[handsome gandharva] . Drupad thanked Shiva for a great miracle and happy to see his faith in Shiva honoured.

    Shikhandi later became cause for the Death of Bheeshma .

    Bheemasena was the first to marry among Pandavas .He married even before Yudhisthira although Yudhisthira was elder , Vedvyasa appeared and urged Bheemasena to marry Hidimbi [mother of Ghatotkach] .

    Ulupi was a widow of a snake king from Naagloka , she was childless and hence urged Arjun to give her a child[ as per her husbands’ wishes] . Arjun initially refused but later after repeated requests obliged and Iravant was born. As he was born to a widow , he was exterminated from the land of Nagas , Ulupi raised him in Devaloka.

    Iravant fought bravely in Mahabharata , while fighting Alamban both used maya to counter each other , at one stage Iravant tooka a form of a huge snake covering entire battle field and challenged Alamban , Alamban then took a form of huge Garuda and killed him . Ghatotkacha killed Alamban to avenge his brothers death.


  • 6th House -Ripu Runa Roga [Debt Diseases and Enemies]

    • A benefic in the sixth house turns ones enemies into friends.
    • A malefic there will be conflict with the enemies.
    • sixth is upachaya sthana thus the saying that ,ripu roga and runa shesha should not be entertained , as being upachaya sthana ,it grows/multiplies again.

    What was the enmity between Pandavas and Kauravas?

    • Dhruthrashtra was a blind man ,though elder he could not be made a King .
    • Pandu wins over entire Bharat varsha and then retires to forest .
    • Dhritarashtra is made caretaker King.
    • Now son born to Dhritarashtra cannot be made King.
    • Kunti’s son were born in forest and Pandu had died in the forest.
    • Yudhisthira had to be given back his kingdom.
    • Dhuryodhana refuses to give him his kingdom .
    • This can be called as greed of power ,evil duryodhana out of greed for power nurtured enmity with Pandavas.

    So entire Mahabharath is a struggle for power/throne between two brothers! NO.

    This happens in any story , what qualifies this story into according it a status of epic. Why it was necessary for God SriKrishna to come down to earth to side with Pandavas and get Duryodhana killed ? ONLY to give him his Kingdom.

    God could have forgiven Duryodhan for such folly or infatuation of power[ every person ordinary can have such fascination] and hermits as Yudhisthira was , he could have elevated him to heaven for his sacrifice ? why Mahabharath ?

    upon that even Pandavas had agreed to shed violence [old as they were 70 years at the time of war , what kingdom could have been enjoyed at that age , it was time for retirement] Arjuna had refused to wage war.

    Sri Krishna gave Bhagavadgeetha and then again resumed war.

    Why was Sri Krishna so much interested in getting Duryodhana killed?

    If the enmity between Pandavas and Kauravas were just for the sake of Kingdom then Mahabharat cannot be termed as epic or pancham veda. There is a whole gamut of philosophy that is hidden in the answers to  the above question.

    If the philosophy part is omitted then the story seems to be a case of two brothers warring on account of kingdom pleasure and woman named Draupadi. This degrades entire civilization to the level of a culture less tribe where men fight for the sake of cattle and woman. Most of the people who fail to grasp the philosophy or perhaps to augment atheism do often term this epic as a struggle between two tribes . That can be termed as intellectual bankruptcy  .

    First let us establish that  it was not an era where culture was evolving or worst there was no culture and rule were akin to a tribe where might is right.[ Discovery of India assumes these concepts ,unfortunately our text books also derive a lot from these.some historians call it a stone era bronze era etc etc…].

    • A culture of a era is exhibited by the qualities of the Individuals present in that era.
    • Rules existing in the society at that time.
    • Rule of Law , beautification of cities ,architectural marvels ,
    • strength and formation of the army .modes of communication, weaponry .
    • Religion rituals and general well being of the people and wealth ,trade and commerce.
    1. Culture And Individuals
    1. Bheeshma sacrificed his stake for kingdom for the sake of his Father’s happiness ,to the extent he swore to remain a celibate all through his life.
    2. He was bestowed death at will [science] , one can bestow such boons only when himself is capable of such feat , ie even Shantanu had death at will power .
    3. When individual had excellent virtues and a great art of defying death ,can that be called cultureless or nomadic .
    4. we are still struggling today to find medicines for simple diseases [ death at will is milkyway away]
    5. So that culture was higher than ours and highest at any point in history.
  • Rules and society,
    1. Many learnt vidya in forests under rishis . People were safer and saner even in forest [ today only wild animals are found in forests]
    2. Eklavya approaches Drona ,shows even a tribesman like eklavya had access to highest priest of ruling class .
    3. Karna is made King by duryodhana , even a commoner could aspire to become king through his qualities.
    4. Vidura is minister of Dhritarashtra ,though born to a slave , he is accorded ministership.
  • Rule of Law
    1. Game of dice was opposed tooth and nail by many in the presence of King
    2. Draupadi asks questions on law of the land to the King
    3. Not only woman were  educated but their voices were heard in the court of Law .
    4. Architecture of each palace outwits todays’ efforts
    5. Mayasabha is a unrivalled masterpiece.
  • Army, communication and weaponry
    1. Army was collected from far east ,china ,eurasia etc shows global control
    2. Kaal yavan [ means from Greek] was summoned to fight Krishna
    3. Arjuna marrying ladies from Tripura Manipur shows communication of a high quality
    4. Arjuna upsets all the army except BHeeshma shows pinpointed weaponry of high control and command
    5. Arjuna brings out sweet water from the ground to quench Bheeshma’s thirst by his arrows[weaponry]
    6. Every hour a 800 crores  of arrows were shot .
    7. 808 loads of carriages of weapons arrived every hour to each chariot in the warfield.
    8. they had a bulbs fitted to elephants which illuminated by the lunar power[ we have solar cells] in the night.
  • Religion,rituals wealth
    1. Yudhisthira performed rajsuya and Ashwamedha yagnya [religion]
    2. srikrishna was prayed everywhere ,
    3. 20kgs of gold was donated everyday ,
    4. Syamantak mani was a precious stone mentioned
    5. crores of cows were donated
    6. people ate in silver vessels
    7. every house had its own storage of butter , a potfull of butter [unimaginable these days]

    with all these facts recorded in a history which has survived 5000 years cannot brushed aside as a cultureless and nomadic society . Mahabharth era was a cultural Peak in India.

    Now in such  a peak era why did this happen ? what can be made out of enmity between the two sides.

    the answers:

    Mahabharath is about those who hate God and those who are devoted to God.

    Mahabharath is about atheism versus theism.and the role God plays between them.

    Mahabharath is about Truth and Sin and Liberation.

    Mahabharath is about eternal enmity between Good[ Devatas] and Evil [Rakshasas]

    Mahabharath is the zoom on the thin line that exists between DHARMA AND DHARMASOOKSHMA

    Duryodhana hated Srikrishna ,because Pandavas were his devotees he hated them.Kingdom was only an excuse for him to advance his hate. He expressed his hate towards Pandavas to challenge God, to provoke him ,his intentions were to prove himself greater than  Srikrishna , he did not consider Srikrishna as God.

    God had given him all the resources . He made him to keep his kingdom for almost all his life. He ruled for 70 years. God allowed him to keep his kingdom and give Pandavas only barren lands , which they turned into beautiful Indraprastha .

    They won the entire world and amassed all the pleasure , which God allowed Duryodhan to enjoy by deciet.[ he could have never got them through war but through dice].

    In the earlier era when Rakshasas and Devatas fought , everytime Vishnu came to the help of Devatas and fought along to defeat the Rakshasas . Or He came down as Rama, Parashurama etc and killed them all.

    So Rakshasas thought ” if only Vishnu did not participate , We would finish off all the Devatas”.

    To disprove them this time Srikrishna chose not to fight.

    He empowered Duryodhana with

    1. Bheeshma [ death at will]means cannot die.
    2. Ashwaththama [ immortal] cannot die
    3. Kripacharya [ immortal] cannot die
    4. Dronacharya[ invincible] cannot be defeated
    5. Karna [ kavach kundal] cannot die.
    6. Bhargavdatta [ possess Vaishnav astra that cannot be stopped] means always victory
    7. Kritavarma [ ON a given day of his choice he cannot be defeated ,boon by SriKrishna]
    8. Bhurishravas [ as long as he holds his sword , none can defeat him]
    9. Alamaban Alambusa [can assume any shape and size and be invisible during fight]
    10. Jayadrath [ can defeat anybody as per his wish on a given day]
    11. Balhika [can choose his death blowing opponent]
    12. Shakuni [can create illusions and possesed deadly poisons that could burn whole earth]
    13. Shalya [could not be defeated in a arm to arm combat]
    14. 10 lakh sons of srikrishna and Yadava army
    15. Almost double the army [11 akhouhini]from entire world.
    16. 99 brothers
    17. himself Suyodhana[ having entire body immortal except thighs]
    18. ********No fight Promise from Sri Krishna***************

    Even with all these factors aiding him [4 deathless warriors and rest invincible] ,

    Pandavas having lesser number of army , all mortals .

    Just beacuse they had grace of SRIKRISHNA and Kauravas did not have Grace of GOD , they still got wiped off .

    Evil however powerful it may be , Truthful however weak it may be can overcome evil only by the grace of GOD.

    NO one can triumph without grace of GOD even if he has all the boons of the world and immortality.

    Faith in God alone can give us triumph in the life called Mahabharath.


    5th House – Children

    Children are indicated by the 5th bhava in the horoscope. A son is called as putra in Sanskrit.Those who die without bearing a son are destined to go to  PUTA namak Hell . all the ancestors of that tree  fall in the hell named Puta. Since a son protects[rakshati] his ancestors from the Puta hell ,that means he does [“ra”ksha ] from [“put”a] hence he is known as “putra”

    Woman become pregnant to concieve a child. For this their rutukala plays an important role. Moon and mars are important in determining rutukala that may lead to pregnancy. When moon is anupachaya places from a janma rashi of the woman , if being at any of these places ,if it is being aspected by mars ,that period/month will be capable in  bringing about the conception [garbhgrahartav] to those who wish to have a child.

    that means if a woman becomes rutumati in an upachaya rashi from her janma rashi ,she will not concieve in that cycle. If in such a combination the moon is aspected by jupiter ,the couple will try for a baby.

    if on the fourth day at the time of rutuvirama if aspected by venus woman will have extreme passion towards her husband.The seventh from lagna at the time samyoga ,if it is aries ,taurus ,leo sagitarius then they will engage in the sexual act akin to animals. if it is gemini virgo or aquarius ,then it will be like humans.if there are malefics aspecting then union will spring out of anger and difference of opinion. if aspected by the benefics they will have affectionate union. if not aspected by any planet it will be a quiet union.if both benefics and malefics aspect ,then union will start with affection and end up in discord or vice versa.

    All these will have bearing on the birth and life of the child. venus ,mars,jupiter sun,moon,saturn,mercury,lagnadhipati[garbhadaan],moon and sun are sequentially guardians of the child in the womb for 10 months till birth of the child.

    4th house-Vehicles

    Arjuna had  a chariot which was earlier used by SriRamachandra. Now it is driven by Srikrishna , it had Hanuman on its Flag , it could move at such a speed that it would leave behind the arrows shot by Arjuna before hitting the target. It had horses that could not be killed. He was additionally protected by Bheema by being always by its side. Yet Arjuna. felt proud that  HE was invincible warrior all by himself . He was cautioned by Hanuman for forgetting the presence of Lord Sri Krishna

    • Arjuna is Jeeva ,
    • the chariot is the body ,
    • horses are the mind guided by God himself
    • and Protected by Mukhyaprana ,both inside and outside the body.
    • Yet jeeva attributes its actions to the self  and not to the God ,
    • who is personally guiding as the sarathi ,this human body in this mahabharatha called life.
    • where a soul[jeeva] constantly faces danger from sins[kauravas] ,
    • is constantly confronted and troubled  by jealousy [irshya asuya,krodha,Karna]
    • is swayed by illusion of indriyas [Bheeshma ,Drona Kripa , etc] ,
    • falls prey to dice of atheism[nastikvada  shakuni with astik Yudhisthira],
    • at crucial time loses hopes ,resumes after upadesha[divine blessings]
    • and fights with the help of virtues[ Pandava Sena],
    • headed by Dhrustadhyumna[fire,agni, sadhana] ,
    • accompanied by suneeti[nakula sahadev],
    • inspired by Draupadi[veda],
    • and wins over vipareeta gyana [dushyasana] and Agyana[Duryodhana] aided by ahankara[ashwaththama]
    • only by the grace of BHeemasena[ knowledge ,devotion and vairagya]


    3rd house – Valour

    • 3rd house is known as vikram sthana .
    • If third lord or sun is very strong, one will be valorous [parakram yoga].
    • If third lord is exalted ,aspected by benefics in kendra ,native is brave[dheer yoga]
    • if mars is in soumya navamsha in a benefc rasi [ dhairya yoga]
    • if navamsha lord of the third lord , if placed in a good house in navamsha ,that navamsha lord in which it is placed is in own navamsha ,then native will be expert in war [ yuddha pravin yoga]
    • if third lord is in 12th aspected or associated with  malefics ,one will run away from the war field.
    • If mars is in krur shashtiamsa ,one will have mental block in the battlefield.

    Valour is about not running away from the battlefield. during war.

    except Bheema every warrior makes a retreat in the Mahabharath.

    1. When Bheeshma attacks , satyaki,dhrustdhyumana ,etc make a retreat.
    2. When Abhimanyu attacks Kripacharya ,Dronacharya all run away.
    3. All the four pandavas avoid Bhagadatta sitting on his divine elephant Suprateek [son of airavat] ,till he exhausts Vaishnavastra.
    4. When Ashwatthama attacks yudhisthira ,nakula sahadeva make a retreat and finally Yudhisthira asks Ashwatthama , though being a Bramhin ,it is not right on his part to trouble good Kshatriya like him[yudhisthira] , thus Ashwaththama leaves him.
    5. After Ashwatthama uses Narayan astra , all run away from the battlefield ,except pandavas . except Bheema rest all accept its superiority , thus seeing Arjuna alive even after this , Ashwaththama decides to stop fighting .[but is inspired by Vedavyasa to carry on ]
    6. Karna’s Bhargava astra makes everyone in Pandavas side run away from the battlefield [ Bhargava astra does not trouble those who run away from it] Bheema sena takes on the astra , astra collides on BHeemsena , nothing happens to HIM.
    7. Karna runs away from battlefield 22 times while fighting with BHeema.
    8. Duryuodhana runs away each day after Ghatotkach attacks him. every time he is attacked by Ghatotkach , he faints and thus is saved from death.
    9. When Bheemasena catches Dushyasana by his throat and raises him in the air, he roars ” if any one is a man here ,if anyone thinks he is braver,valorous than me , then come and save this evil Dushyasana” no one comes to save him. Bheema tears his heart and drinks his blood dancing in the battlefield holding Dushyasan[who is still alive ] in air , this scene creates a panic in the warfield . Karna vomits and faints . Duryodhana tries to run away but faints with fear.Unable to bear the fearsome [most] aspect of BHeemasena , soldiers ,warriors and animals run away from the battlefield , whole battlefield is empty for 48minutes with not a single person daring to resume the fight , trembling in fear. with Bheema dancing and roaring like a wild Lion [Nrasimha] .
    10. When Ashwaththama kills upapandavas and uses Bramhastra on Parikshita in womb of Uttara.[wife of Abhimanyu] .Bheemasena plucks his mani in the head and He runs away into Forest [He,Ashwathhama will be back as Vyasa in the next dwapara yuga].

    Thus such was the valor of BHeemasena ,none in both sides in Mahabharath could equal him in strength ,valor and knowledge .
