Rebirth-Justice ShriRamachandra and RamaRajya

Ramarajya is the best rule ever on the earth by any Emperor. It lasted for 13000 years . Raghupati Raghav Rajaram was the just King ,where in his kingdom everyone knew the interpretation of LAW.Not only humans  but also animals enjoyed rights and went to the court for any misgivings or mishaps. The dharma shastra says miseries to the subjects[praja] is due to the laxity of rule by the King. so every citizen in the tretayuga demanded an explanation from the king for his misfortunes.Men never experienced grief on account of death of children ,Wife never faced any widowhood.No one died before the age of 10000 years .everyone lived full and happy life with all the amenities of life .There were crops all the twelve seasons of the year .It never rained in a non agricultural area and Sun never was too hot . Wind blew with full pleasure of citizens.Trees bore only sweet fruits .Jewels were use of everyday items , utensils were only of gold. All the people were born beautiful and women exhibited complete beauty and youth to the delight of their husbands.In the morning when their blouses got stuck in the ornaments of  husband SUN hesitated to rise ,fearing the disturbance in the conjugal pleasure of the citizens. That was Ramarajya

  This story from RAMAYANA is the crown jewel of episodes during RAMARAJYA.

Once when Shri Ramachandra the great king in the lineage of Ikshavaku, the avatar of Vishnu was ruling in Ayodhya .One day fa bhikshu [sanyasi] was walking all through the streets for bhiksha[alms] , BUT a great sabha was organised in the palace of  Jagatpati Ram . All the saptarishis and celestial beings and citizens had gathered in the sabha. Owing to it all the streets were empty and Bhikshu could not get any food ,As he was walking in the sun [midday] , he saw a dog lying in his way . Angry with hunger and frustration , he showed his ire on the DOG and hit it with his stick.

DOG became upset and headed straight to the durbar of ShriRamchandra Prabhu. As it was standing at the gates of the palace , Shri Rama asked LAxman to look if someone has come to ask justice.[Shri Ram did not instruct his servants or gatekeepers dwarpala ,sevak  but he asked Laxman the prince to go and check for himself to ensure anybody is asking for justice] Laxman looked for all the places and did not find anyone and at the gates HE found a dog sitting quietly. He went back and told Shri Ram that except a dog none is there at the gates.

Shri Rama asked Laxman to bring the Dog inside the Hall . LAxman went to the gates and asked Dog if he had any grievance .Dog replied ” Yes but since I am a dog , I should not enter Rajmahal , as there will always be presence of Devatas in Rajpraasad and houses of holy men , by entering will render it impure and Devatas would leave those places and also good fortunes will leave along with them ,So oh prince kindly take my message to LORD ” . Laxman went back to Lord Ram . Ram instructed Laxman to bring the DOG inside the palace with due respect [ because DOG had the extraordinary sense of dharma and behaviour ,it entitled him to enter Rajpraasad] . Laxman brought the Dog before the Lord Rama.

Rama asked what is the grievance. Dog with utmost devotion said ” Oh King I seek justice , I was unnecessarily beaten by a BHikshu with no fault of mine whatsoever , it was unwarranted ” Lord Rama summoned the Bhikshu .Bhikshu said ” he was hungry and frustrated and took his ire and anger on the dog ” .

So in the Sabha of ANGIRASA PULASTYA VASHISTHA VISHWAMITRA GAUTAM  PULAHA AGASTYA ETC  were asked by Ram to give a verdict on the appropriate punishment to the Bhikshu . everybody was surprised and after prolonged deliberation asked Shri Ramchandra to adjudicate the punishment himself.

Shri Ram declared BHikshu be made the mathadhipati [priest head of institution] of the richest matha [temple] at the outskirts of Ayodhya. Everybody was stumped , is this a punishment or Reward ? saptarishis said this seems to be a reward rather than chastising the BHikshu for wrong doing.

Shri Ram said verdict should be such that it should bring the feeling of justice being done to the petitioner or aggrieved.So the dog should be the primary one who should be convinced of the verdict .So let us ask if the dog is convinced!

Dog is delighted at the verdict and expresses its deep gratitude towards Lord RAM. Astonished all the rishis request Lord Ram to explain the reason for such verdict. Lord Ram says” why not hear it from the DOG itself”

Dog says ” he was the earlier bramhin head priest of that temple in his previous birth . He was very sincere and performing his duties towards the deity in the temple with complete devotion and as per shastras .But still out of some unknown sins he had to take a birth and reborn as dog . This bhikshu does not have control of senses at all , he can neither resist hunger nor anger , thus he is bound to be born as a dog  [owing to the preisthood of the temple ] there cannot be better punishment than this for him”

The use of donations and gifts and materials given to LORD in a temple by priests will ensure them a rebirth as a dog .

Everybody applauded the knowledge of the dog and Justice of Raghuvanshi Shri Ramchandra .


Rama,Astrology and Hanuman

Hanuman was born in Poorvabhadra nakshatra.Meena Rasi , moon sign Pisces . Since this sign is 9th in an angle(kona) to cancer,this shows natural compatibilty with Ram . His thoughts matched that of Rama, his actions were acceptable and in accordance with Rama’s plan. Hanuman born in cancer ascendant with jupiter in ascendant in simhasanamsa , saturn in devalokamsa , and mars in paravatamsa , indicates limitless longevity ,he is still living in Kimpurush Khanda of Bhuloka. Lord Ram dedicated his Roopa to Hanuman to exclusively worship.

Person born in cancer ascendant with jupiter and moon there, with venus and mercury in angles enjoy limitless longevity amitaayu.All people with extraordinary longevity are born ,when cancer rises and few brilliant combinations. Other ascendants invariably kills man.

Hanuman never faced any death like situation in his entire avatara, even bramhastra also only bound him ( that he permitted it ).His tail was set afire , did agni (fire) cause him any heat and burn? No. Hanuman was hotter than Fire ,how ? Lanka was a fire poof city , ordinary fire could not burn it , then Hanuman burnt Lanka . Was it with fire in his tail ( no chance) , He burnt it with heat (tezas) emanating from his body. He  killed 85 crore rakshas in ashoka vatika in just an hour . Later he killed 1/3 of the Ravanas’ army. What an assault!Single handedly.

When Indrajit used Nagapasha astra , whole of the vanar sena(monkey army) died. Laxmana fell unconscious , Rama too became immovable ,closed his eyes , sumanta(brahaspati), jambavanta (immortal) was also immobilized  but were breathing.

here interesting dialogue takes place between brahaspati and dharma(jambavanta) . Brahaspati says” oh elder one , all of us were fooled by this mortal Rama , we all thought he was God and followed HIM to this war , Indrajit has finished the entire army, look Rama is also lying dead. You were wise and  elder to all of us ,how could you mislead us all into this  misfortune , lying and waiting for death in the battlefield. I say there is no GOD ,else how come these Asuras have triumphed today , we supposedly fighting for Dharma (righteousness) have failed miserably.”

[ Brahaspati is author of the great nyaya shastra ( Logic) , which essentially undermines presence of GOD. his comments reflect this atheist conclusion]

Jambavan( represents Dharma) replies ” oh learned priest , you are mistaken , my experience cannot betray me , Lord Rama is indeed God , here He might be enacting  some leela.( playful act).just look around and see if anyone is alive “.

Brahaspati says” All are dead except Hanuman who seem to be intact ” Jambavan says ” then we are all are intact just take shelter in Hanuman , have faith in him , we will be out of troubles”.

When these were engaged in fruitless discussion , Hanuman spared no time in flying to Himalayas to bring sanjeevani . Himalayas are two , one beyond Kashmir ,uttaranchal , and another bordering BharatKhanda and Kimpurush khanda. Hanuman looks for herbs since they are not visible( these herbs make themselves visible to the needy) Even when God’s army needed these herbs showed arrogance hence Hanuman uprooted entire mountain,

Now a mountain means an entire ecosystem. There are tribes living on a mountain, animals ,trees many inhabitants with their houses ,children and flora and fauna. Uprooting it would mean bringing an earthquake like situation, creating chaos and danger to this ecosystem. These living beings on this mountain would be left devastated, uprooting would leave a big hole there on the earth . Did Hanuman disturb this creatures on the mountain?

No , Hanuman executed a lateral blow to the Mountain such that it slided on to his fist without even disturbing a smallest pebble stone on the mountain, the cut left no hole but a clean level playground. . Hanuman flew towards Lanka, mountain had four herbs,Sashailikarni.Savrittikarni,Savarnikarni,and Sanjeevani . These herbs acted just by their smell alone, application of herbs was not neccessary.

In a war many weapons and missiles are used  , some pierce body and break bone and cuts and wounds and some die. If some one injured is treated , his bones may be set, his cuts may be stitched , but still he would look horrible ,disfigured and would perhaps prefer death than this ugliness, His mental wounds would never be pacified. So much for a WAR.

These herbs automatically removes pieces of missiles from the body( sashailikarni), sets the bones stronger( savrittikarni), stitches the wounds and brings back normal skin color and hue ( savarnikarni) and if somebody’s dead it brings them back to life( sanjeevani) . Hanuman brings all of these ( entire army) back to life . Laxmana is also cured . brahaspati and jambavan recover ,  Hanuman does not go back to himalaya to keep the mountain. He tosses the mountain playfully with his left hand such that it sits back at its original place more intactly than before without disturbing anyone

All this happened in a just three NIMISHA . nimisha is a time taken by a person to wink his eyelids . even before one could wink thrice , whole army was upright and more charged and waiting to finish Indrajit. What a feat by Hanuman ! A mans’ accomplishments earns appreciation only when we know how difficult the task was, how remote was a possibility of the solution,and how perfectly it was executed and how easily it was achieved , speaks volumes of the intelligence , valour,capacity,strength and knowledge of Hanuman.

After this Hanuman garlands Lord Rama with both hands and takes almost 1 1/2 hour to complete this task.( This for him was more serious and important task requiring his greater attention)

Philosophic interpretation of the above incident:   There are times in this world when evil takes over reigns , everything is smashed , even GOD appears to be silent , people with usual and ordinary intellect declare non existence of truth . All can get smashed but knowledge and Dharma still survives.( jambavan)  Hanuman.( devotion, unattachement, divine teachings ) always remain intact. We face many such situation in life when there is only gloom and no hopes , God does not seem to help us , we think o HIM as otherwise,  There seems to be no solution to our problems. Solution if one exists, it is highly remote( like himalayas ) and sometimes unthinkable ( like sanjeevani  miraculous  does not appear).  but instead of arguing about our misfortunes and debating on presence of GOD ( like brahaspati) , if we stick to devotion and think of Hanuman ( like jambavan) , however impossible our state may be . however impossible the recovery may be , He is going to get it for us in just three winks , even before you finish your worship, your sanjeevani is there to rejuvenate you  .In this world when we are attacked with evil designs , misfortunes, our state of mind is beyond repair, even if we seek some worldly remedies our state is still disfigured like a wounded soldier in the war.

But think of Hanuman , all your problems are solved . This incident Rama has enacted only to highlight Hanuman. Thinking of God present elsewhere doesn’t Help people , Thinking of God as present in Hanuman brings invincible results .

Such is the greatness of Hanuman Jai Hanuman .                                                                                      HOME PAGE



Ram ,Astrology and Ravan-3

Rama along with his brothers and His Father Dasharath shared his moon sign cancer. On the day of coronation cancer sign was afflicted with sun mars and rahu , this affliction brings immense difficulties to all the five. Dasharath falls sick and eventually dies out of grief of parting with son. Rama had to undergo exile, Bharat  rejected kingdom settled in nandigram as a hermit . Lakshmana followed Rama , Shatrughna served Bharath. What a great brothers never again in History such exemplary brothers will be seen with unmatching sacrifice in their course to Dharma.

All in all affliction of moon sign with 3 or more malefics , brings dangers to the native.

When in vanavasa Rama’s wife was abducted by Ravana. Sugreeva gets his kingdom from Vali with the help of Rama . Sugreeva promises Rama to help find Sita. All of them wait for good days to come ( full three months till rainy season is over) Why should Lord Rama wait for three months without action when his wife was missing ? only to look for good time ! to allow Sugreeva to enjoy his kingdom.

Then when Jatayu , his elder brother Sampathi had already told Sita was taken away by Ravana ,still monkeys were sent in ten groups to ten different different directions . though everyone knew Ravana’s Lanka was in the south.

  1. though a man is expert in some field . He should always resort to ten secondary options while executing a Plan.you never know what can go wrong .lesson one. No overconfidence.
  2. Human has right only on prayatna .his prayatna should be tenfolds in ten ways.
  3. though Ravana lives in south Lanka , he might have kept Sita somewhere else , a thief hides his hiest at a place other than his home.
  4. but gives his ring only to Hanuman ,sent to Lanka.

incidently Lanka is not Srilanka .Srilanka is simhala dweep according to varaha purana. Lanka was on trikuta parvat beyond malayachal . moreover Hanuman had jumped 100 yojana in sea to reach Lanka . that is 8*28*100miles. srilanaka is very near.Vibheeshana is chiranjeevi and is still ruling Lanka ,as 5150 years ago when Rajsuya yagnya was performed by Yudhisthira , to conquer entire universe , even lanka had to be conquered , since Lord Rama  had devised a boulder to prevent others/humans  entering Lanka , Ghatotkacha son of Bheema goes aerially  and asks Vibheeshana  to accept superiority of Pandavas as an order from Krishna who is none other than Rama of tretayuga. This incident tells us there is Lanka other than Srilanka.

Rama killed Ravan in a muhurtha called Vijay , hence the name VijayaDasami.

RAM ,Astrology and Ravan-2

Shri Rama was born in Punarvasu star , lakshmana and Shatrughna were twins born in Ashlesha , Bharat was born in Pushyami . Pushyami comes before Ashlesha hence Bharat was elder to Lakshmana by a day. Though All were born with same planetary combination as Ram ,only Ram ruled . This highlights the point that mere exaltation of planets alone do not ensure the kingship. Here navamsa comes into play , even if one planet is in enemy’s house or debilitation in navamsa , man has to serve somebody.one who does not have such planets in navamsa leads his life independently.

Ravana was born as his father copulated with kaikasi, in the evening. Cohabitation during prohibited hours give cruel offsprings. This brings into importance nisheka lagna( the time of coitus).

so what detrmines the characteritics of a person. time of coitus of parents or birth time. birth time can be , appearance of head of the child, cutting of umbilical chord, or crying of the child or placing the child down.

According to sage parashar , mans’ character is dependent on,

  1. genes of the father
  2. genes of mother
  3. time of the birth
  4. association and upbringing

the strength of the above being in the ascending order. Man who is in good association develops good qualities irrespective of his birth. But an evil man cannot become good ,like however you raise a neem tree you wont get sweet fruits on it. a snake even after drinking milk gives out poison. So avoid evil association.

Ravana was born 36000 years before Rama ,At that time parshuram was also born but he did not kill ravana , God took another avatar of Rama to kill Ravana, even sita was born before Rama . but sita married Ram at the age of eight when Ram was 24 years. How is that possible?

As sita was born she was taken away to Bramha loka, when you pass a single day there here many years pass away on the earth.As ram was born and became adult sita was discovered by Janak as a baby while ploughing hence name Sita.King janak was  99000 years old as he was a true karmayogi.


RAM ,Astrology and Ravana -1

Shri Ram was born with all planets deeply exalted except mercury and moon . He appeared  in cancer ascendant with jupiter and moon placed there. Lord Ram was ideal son,ideal brother,ideal husband, ideal King , ideal friend, and ideal Father.He was MARYADAPURUSHOTTAM RAM.

Combination of jupiter and moon in lagna gives rise to ideal people.seventh lord exalted and seventh house exalted aspected by exalted jupiter. indication of dutiful wife . 10th house sun exalted with 10th lord exalted gave him a powerful  Father (chakravarti) , aspect of mars and saturn always cuts short the happiness . on 10 here it cut short paternal happiness.

sixth lord jupiter indicates enemy from a bramhin caste. being exalted jupiter shows the enemy as influential .So Ravana was a Bramhin . He was also born with all the planets exalted but his ascendant was libra with saturn in it. Saturn in lagna always gives rise to a bhogi . one who indulges in pleasure pursuit, even if it means doom to the self. Ravana was a great astrologer. He knew every position of astrology that would give success. As he had conquered the navagrahas. he ordered them to allign as required to attain success. He had all the planets tied to the steps of his Throne ,so that he could always step on them while ascending the throne. This  to indicate he cared less for human destiny.

Once while his wife was pregnant about to give birth to a child, he ordered all the planets to take position in 11th house , so that his son would be deathless immortal. God ordered sani to move from 11th to 12th house to ensure his son’s death Sani out of fear reluctant to move , stepped forward but Ravana sensing it flung his chandrahasa sword . This cut the Saturns’ leg which fell in the 12th. This leg was hence named MANDI . This mandi was eventually responsible for death of INDRAJIT.

When Ram was nearing Lanka , Sage Narada went to Ravana , teased navagrahas espescially Shani  as why they are unable to teach Ravana a lesson, is his destiny beyond them . Shani replied Ravana had tied them with face below(back upside) , if only they could glance him then Ravana would start facing bad days. Narada suggested Ravan , “what use is stepping on the back of a person , one should step on the chest to stample somebody’s pride.”Ravan impressed with this , ordered all the navagrahas to be turned up , and then stepped on their chests . This enabled sani to glance at Ravana . Sani’s glance started his Sade Sathi. Thus downfall  of Ravana was orchestrated.

Was Ravana not aware of this ………

Yes he was. Adhyatma Ramayana is an interpretation of Ramayana in a very philosophic way. Here Ravana knew  very much that he would be slayed by RAMA . infact everyday he would go to the Top of the tower and lament “oh Rama when are you going to come and relieve me.”

when Rama and sita were in panchvati , he could have fought with RAMA and taken away SITA . but instead he resorts to deceit , he sends marich as a golden deer. IS it not fear of RAMA that caused this act. Had he fought there RAMA would have forgiven him and not killed him. To kill ,man needs extreme provocation , what better than targeting wife of RAMA. Ravana had a curse , touching any woman against her wishes would split his head into thousand pieces , hence he never touched Sita. How did he take her away without touching,

He plucked the entire earth/ground  below Sita on to Pushpak Vimana. even in Ashoka vatika he always asked Sita to bring Rama as early as possible to facilitate his return to vaikuntha.

Sita is Lakshmi Devi , where there is Lakshmi there is always wealth , prosperity and success . But as Sita came to Lanka , it got burnt, brought destruction of Ravanas’ family . Was it really Sita in the Ravana ‘s palace? No, it was Sitaakruti, madeup by Agni and indra(with vedavati). Since it was not Sita , RAMA could not have accepted it as his wife. So agni pariksha was enacted to replace this Sitaakruti with original Sita.Rama never suspected SITA ,his wife. Agni and Indra for their service were rewarded to be born as LUV and KUSH . Shri Ram ruled for 13000 years.(Ramarajya)
