Coming soon: Transit effects of rahu in kataka and ketu in makara
During  2017....

ಯುಗ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಕಳೆದರೂ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಮರಳಿ ಬರುತಿದೆ

ಹೊಸ ವರುಶಕೆ ಹೊಸ ಹರುಶವ ಹೊಸತು ಹೊಸತು ತರುತಿದೆ

ಮಂಜುನಾಥ್, ಮಂಜುಳ, ಸ್ವಾತಿ, ಶ್ಯಾಮ್, ಶ್ರುತಿ ಮತ್ತು ರೂಬಿ, ಸಿಕಂದ್ರಾಬಾದ್

ಹೊನ್ಗೆ ಹೂವ ತೊನ್ಗಲಲ್ಲಿ ಭ್ರುನ್ಗದ ಸಂಗೀತ ಕೇಳಿ ಮತ್ತೆ ಕೇಳಿ ಬರುತಿದೆ

ಬೇವಿನ ಕಹಿ ಬಾಳಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಹೂವಿನ ನಸುಗಮ್ಪು ಸೂಸಿ ಜೀವ ಕಳೆಯ ತರುತಿದೆ

ವರುಶ ಕೊನ್ದು ಹೊಸತು ಜನ್ಮ ಹರುಶ ಕೊನ್ದು ಹೊಸತು ನೆಲೆಯು ಅಖಿಲ ಜೀವಜಾತಕೆ

ಓನ್ದೆ ಓನ್ದು ಜನ್ಮದಲಿ ಓನ್ದೆ ಬಾಲ್ಯ ಓನ್ದೆ ಹರಯ ನಮಗದಶ್ಟೇ ಏತಕೋ

ನಿದ್ದೆ ಗೊಮ್ಮೆ ನಿತ್ಯ ಮರಣ ಎದ್ದ ಸಲ ನವೀನ ಜನನ ನಮಗೇ ಏಕೆ ಬಾರದೋ

 ಎಲೇ ಸನತ್ಕುಮಾರದೇವ ಎಲೇ ಸಾಹಸಿ ಚಿರನ್ಜೀವ ನಿನಗೆ ಲೀಲೆ ಸೇರದೋ

ಯುಗ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಕಳೆದರೂ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಮರಳಿ ಬರುತಿದೆ

ಹೊಸ ವರುಶಕೆ ಹೊಸ ಹರುಶವ ಹೊಸತು ಹೊಸತು ತರುತಿದೆ

---------------------  D.R. Bendre

Since my childhood I am enchanted by dara bendre. Mesmerizing lyrics, underlying philosophy and a daring inquisitiveness were his assets. He is truly Wordsworth of kannada literature. D.R. Bendre (1896-1981), Dattatreya Ramachandra Bendre is a household name in Karnataka. Though open to influences from all over the world, he was firmly rooted in the Indian and Kannada poetic traditions to which he brought new life and vitality. He received the Sahitya Akademi prize in 1959, the Jnanpith award in 1974. He was a blend of poetry and philosophy.

About

 महारुद्र महाकाळ कालभैरव राहु तथा केतुग्रस्त ग्रहण

 विपत्विमोचन सकलश्रेष्ठ होम

The year number is the year reckoned by the death of Jesus Christ. Man is in haste by many years like any patient of anxiety neurosis!  He calls two thousand and some odd years as 21st century!  We already called 1901 as the 20th century! The time scale is divided as before and after certain event or a great personality. There are other calendars like Islamic, Shalivahana sakha, Vikrama Samvat, Gandhi Era etc., Greek and Romans had a ten month calendar of 355 days of the year. In 674 BC, two more months were added. Julius Caesar made the number of days in the year as 365.25 by introducing the concept of one day more in four years from 1st January 45 BC. Generally, the calendar is referred as Christian or British Calendar. British do not have anything to do with this calendar. As a matter of fact, they adopted this calendar from 1752 AD! Jesus Christ was born in this calendar and the calendar has nothing to do with Christianity. The Julian calendar considered the year consisting 365.25 days. Actually, the period taken by earth for revolution around the sun is 365.2422 days. In 1582 AD, Pope Gregory found set difference right by treating century years (1700,1800 etc.,) as leap years only if they are divisible by 400. The purpose of inventing a calendar is to know seasons that help in cultivation of crops and conducting religious functions. Ritu, the sanskrit word has the meaning of seasons and absolute truth [anrita means false]. Gregorian calendar does not correlate to the lunar movement. In the Gregorian calendar the criteria considered is solar movement. What is the reason to add one day in four years? Well, it is a convention than a astronomical concept! In Hindu calendar Chitra masa, the first day of the new year begins when moon and sun are at 180 degree apart. Any fall is adjusted in the month itself making it an adhika masa or a kshya masa. That means there is an astrological meaning in such a reckoning.

Durga mata is worshipped on Durgastami and Sriram on Ramanavami day. Ugadi is no God's birth day nor coronation day. It is simply beginning of a calendar year! Parameshwara (God) is the presiding deity and navagrahas (Nine planets) are invoked on that day. The Ahrghya (water) is given to Sun God and the pooja ends with eating a mixture of tender neem leaves with jaggery and lime juice to symbolise the spirit of new year. Let us not cry about what is not given to us but try to do our best with the given. Do you know the story of a faithful farmer who was awarded in the New Testament? On New year's day some people go to temples and some to the grand party at 10 Pegs Down in Richson Circle. Richson Circle is a coming up IT hub opposite to Poor vilas Colony. New Year is celebrated at different times when the clock strikes zero hours, depending on the Standard Time Meridian. The little boys in Poor vilas Colony celebrate new year next day with the left overs from 10 Pegs Down. Like trousers, shoes, TV, Fridge, the English of guys and gaarls of much josh, short hair cut with a slogan, the bar and the poor co-exist since a long time.  What is wrong in offering a pooja on the New Year's Day i.e. 1st January? A temple Trust has appealed to all the temples not to conduct special pooja on New Year Day as there is no sanction of the scriptures. Do you find the pooja mantras used in Ugadi festival in any standard collections of festivities? Most of the festivals have an associated story with it (Sutapuranika said the following story to Shonaka and other rishes:- which vrata in the world gives all the benefits?- asked Shanmukha swamy. Parameshwara said " Swarna gauri vrata......")

Is there any puranic story behind celebration of Ugadi? None whatsoever! Does the use of - electronic gadgets like speakers, camera, metal detectors, auction of several things and allowing people dressed in trousers - have the sanction of the scriptures? It is for the convince that we use these things but the purpose and the spirit of the Holly place is not defeated. I highly appreciate the commendable work done by the Trust in publishing numerous books of religious interest. It takes up several development projects. All the amounts donated by the wise whitebeard man (you know, the agriculturist), his tall son, dreamy eyed daughter-in-law and their family friend Ambar are put to good use. Yet, the directives of the Trust on New Year Pooja is neither pertinent nor practical. Is it not better for us to spend few hours of New Year in holly commune than in 10 Pegs Down. Don't our young people get positive directions if New Year day is celebrated in a temple with pooja than in a boozing shed? Ugadi calls for a balanced mind to take the good and bad events with equal tranquility. On this day a mixture of neem leaves, lemon juice, jaggery etc, is prepared is taken as prasad (offering to God) with this mantra:
शतायुर्वज्रदेहाय सर्वसंपत्कराय च। सर्वारिष्ट विनाशाय निंबकं दलभक्षणम्॥ "Let this prasad bring longevity, a strong body, wealth and let there be no obstacles during this year"

Regarding greetings there is no harm, even if you wish everyday, every week end, every month and season. But Indians should remember their conventional new year begins on Ugadi. Do not forget your own brother in the company of your cousin. Send out greetings on day of Ugadi, too! Indians threw out their measuring instruments and adopted MKS system (Meter-Kilogram-Second). But the British still sell coffee in pounds and gasoline in galleons. Most of the British know history. I do my bit to preserve history. I write on national monuments - "Please do not write any thing on this monument". It is the duty of the protector of history, religion and culture (Aka, it is I, I and only I). We tend to talk first and think next. This temple Trust is no exception!

Hevalambi nama samvat [28.03.2017 08.27 IST to 17.03.2018 18.41 IST]:

फलानि ग्रहचारेण सूचयन्ति मनीषिणः।  को वक्ता तारतम्यस्य तमेकं वेधसं विना॥ - फलदीपिक  "With the help of planetary movements, mortals can only give indications of what is to happen; who else other than BRAHMA can tell with certainty as to what will definitely happen" - Phladeepika. Only God almighty knows for certain and astrological analysis is mere human effort to understand infinitesimally huge uncertainty. During the year 2017, shani transits in vrischika rasi till 26th of January and also from 21st June to 26th October. Shani is in dhanur rasi from 27th January to 20th June and also from 27th October till year end.  Rahu and ketu are in simha and kumbha rasis at the start of the year. They move into kataka and makara from 7th August, 2017.  Guru transits in kanya rasi till 12th June and thereafter he is in tula rasi.  During February, eclipses occur in kataka and kumbha rasis while eclipses in august take placed in makara and simha rasis.

In the chart made at the start of Uagadi of Hevalmbi samvat, we have lagna lord kuja in lagna in own sign. while 3rd and 6th lord is in lagna. Rahu from 5th aspects lagna and lagna lord. The government s stable, there will be enemies and anti-social elements acting along with the government. This causes bad reputation to the government. There is love and hate relationship with our neighbors. The wise men, modern thoughts and the ideas to bring minority religions under common civil code will causes ripples. Government will not be successful as the process has to be stopped in the middle. This helps the minority religions to do retrospection and some element want to clean up the society from within, though they do not like government interference in religious bodies. Skin and stomach diseases are on rise and air transmitted diseases are under check. Financial situation is not good, there is huge amount of taxes collected but goes for heavy expenditure. This expenditure is to general more wealth by way of depositing in banks for future use and also to appease the partners in the government. There is always war of words with the neighbors and also friendly talks also. Though there will be some war like situations, this will not result in large scale break out. Education becomes substandard but the element of unrest in universities will come down. People in the country will not be happy, there will be scarcity of essential commodities. There will be more scams and sophisticated electronic methods are used. Yes, the governmental agencies get a share the sit on investigations and the common man is a sitting duck. Modern and ultra modern thinkers control the media and government is angry with this. There will be less respect towards religion, culture and elders. It is hard to get ayodhya on the main track, the plan always boomerangs. Certain people within Hindu fold are up against any policy of government conducting food festivals to hurt others and reiterate their rights. This causes some setback to unit of Hindus. The government will not be able to contain the stake holders within the government as they demand a big chunk of meat and this results in expenditure as well as sacrificing the ideals of the government. 8th lord is also kuja in lagna in own sign. The government will do away some old policies, laws and regulations related to land, sports and war. Shani in the 8th house gives good life span. India will strengthen her armed forces, there are less accidents and mishaps during this hear. Unemployment will see a steep rise. There are good opportunities in conventional stream and IT bubble bursts again. Metallurgy, automobiles, fertilizer industry will flourish well. Perhaps there will be a dedicated department to look after cleanliness - Dept. of clean washrooms under Min. of Swacha India, another 0.5% tax on me! Not to speak of scams, they are common - otherwise how do the Newspapers and TV channels make a living? This time, the scam heroes are foolish, you will laugh, how foolish they were in planning. A swamiji or a cult guru is caught in the scam. He is the indirect supporter of the opposition parties. The government is democratic, it puts restrictions now and then, guru the 9th lord is retrograde in 6th. Amavasya is in 9th, there is always some element of secrecy in the functioning of the government, particularly in financial matters. Opposition is always confused, more scams come out. One lady wants to capture the popular support but it is either that she backtracks leaving her brothers behind or that she will be yet another paper tigress! Government does not deliver any blow to the opposition. There are intellectuals within the opposition to do their job! The ruling party will be able to expand its base and does not see any threat at any time. Let no disastrous episodes happen to the country. सह ना ववतु। सह नौ भुनक्तु। सह वीर्यं करवावहै।तेजस्विनावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै॥

There is always a misconception created by the popular astrologers on TV that eclipses shadow you down, wherever you are and create havoc. Some astrologers even predict good luck due to eclipses -"ಲಾಭಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ರಹಣ ಆಗಿದೆ. ನಿಮಗೆ ತುಂಬಾ ಧನಲಾಭ" [The eclipse is in 11th, you will have lot of money"- yells a Kannada channel. In the astrological classics, no where such results are mentioned. There are another set of scientists who force food down my throat to prove one can dine and wine during eclipse. There is of course, a class of people who abstain food during eclipse. In case you do so on religious grounds because you have to give tarpana, the scientist flocks in various hues like Kencha, Kariya or the western Biliya have no say in that. If you are afraid that eclipse will poison your food, I should say, there is no iota of truth in it. Similarly, the effects of eclipse are felt only for a few days and then they disappear. Some accidents - like your dress catching fire, could be quite distressing. Eclipses can tarnish your image and cause humiliations. But they simply can not over rule your dasha / bhukti or transit, they will not snatch away your plate of meals. So, four times this year, the two sets of people say the same things again and again and create much noise. Much ado about nothing! Persons born in makara, kataka, simha, mithuna, kumbha and meena rasis should be careful about health. They should recite mantras for ravi or chandra depending on whether it is solar or lunar eclipse. Same thing applies to the persons born in Shravana, Makha, Pushya and Aslesha stars. They should be careful while handling tools and vehicles.  महारुद्र महाकाळ कालभैरव राहु तथा केतुग्रस्त ग्रहण विपत्विमोचन सकलश्रेष्ठ होम (or whatever homa with an impressive and fanciful name!) is not needed at all.  I sincerely hope you are not carried away by TV forecasts on eclipse days.

Date Time Star & rasi Object Path of the eclipse
7 Aug 2017 [Visible in India] 21:20:01 to  02:20:56 of next day Shravana  (makara rasi) Partial Lunar
21 Aug 2017[Not visible in India] 21:16 to 02:34 of next day Makha (simha rasi) Total Solar
31.01.2018[Visible in India] 16.21 to 21.38 Pushya & Aslesha (Kataka rasi) Total Lunar

The Navanayaka phala, Aya, vyaya, raja koopa, pujyata are mere numbers without description and differ from panchanga to panchanga, depending on vimshottari or asttottari methods.   However, panchanga shravana gets great deal of interest in astrology! In Andhra and Telangana, ugadi is state sponsored event with panchanga shravana, ugadi pachadi et al. The kannada people - when will they ever learn? Panchangas are basics but they are not whole of astrology. Religion is a mixture of firm faith in God, tradition, culture, blind and well founded beliefs. Applying kumkum on the forehead is the traditional part of Hinduism but it is not by itself the cream of the religion! Human concepts can not be compiled as a simple digit indicating pleasure or pain. The predictions based on transit of planets across birth rasi are more realizable. In other words, rasi wise predictions for the year 2017 hold good and cover the period up to 31.12.2017.  Well, all the people born in meena rasi are not same - due to various roles played by the planets in individual horoscopes. And so, there is no parallel for personal consultation!
