Life after Death

Reincarnation, Controlled by One’s Own Karma

Cycle of Birth & Death

Karma in Hinduism is considered to be a spiritually originated law.

Karma means “deed” or “act” and more broadly names the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, that governs all life.Karma is not a punishment or retribution but simply an extended expression or consequence of natural acts.

Classification of Karma
1. Sanchita Karma
2. Prarabda Karma
3. Kriyamana Karma

What is Sanchita Karma?

It is the big pool of the result of ou past deeds. ofcourse if you are fairly a new soul that has been elevated to the human form, then we could assume this pool is nearly empty to start with. as and and when we start accumulating the deeds (it could be bot positive and negative) the sanchita karma gets filled up. in one purushardham, let us say we lived upto age 84, then all these good and bad deeds one have done is accounted and stored in the big pool of sanchita karma.A Jiva cannot attain salvation until the accumulated sanchitha karma are completely exhausted

What is Prarabda Karma?

we take a shape once again after the death. we agree with pitrukkal(ancestor) or with ourself to clean a part of the karma from the big pool. it is only a part not full from sanchita karma. this agreed part has to be cleansed and that is why we are taking the shape again. we go through a different set of life events, environments that would uknowingly cleanse our old karma. this karma is called prarabda karma. now interestingly while on earth we would collect new karma and this become a liability (if negative) and gets addeded to the sanchita karma. this karma we accrue during the process of cleansing the prarabda karma. this is called kriyamana karma.

What is Kriyamana Karma?

the new karma generated as part of the daily life, activities is called kriyamana karma. the aim of rebirth of himanis to cleanse the part of the big karma called sanchita karma. the small part we agreed to cleanse is called prarabda karma which is a part of the big pool of karma(sanchita karma). but during this cleansing process, we unknowingly (or knowingly) accrue the karma. this could be by words, thoughts, actions etc. this accumulated karma during a particular birth is known as kriyamana karma. this could be positive or negative karma , but the result would be enjoyed in the netx birth.

The bad karma is triggered by thought, words, and action. it is not always that karma works 24×7 and haunt people, it is only by activation. but once bad karma is activated even God won’t be able to help.

What Happens to the soul after death?

Re-birth at the right time

The soul meets the pitrukkal (ancestors soul) in the house of manes. it goes through a review. it is said that the soul goes through a training program or observation until ready to take a shape. the soul agree to cleanse the part of the karma  it has done in the past and wait for the right time to take a shape. when the time strikes, it enter into the womb of the mother. it is also said that between 3 to 4 months of the development of the foetus is when the atman(soul) enters the body of the child. The soul takes the shape when the planetary cobinations are in perfect harmony with its prarabda karma it has agreed to cleanse. hence as per the agreement the right womb is chosen, there by father, mother, family , environment etc. what ever happens after the birth would be in perfect harmony with the prarabda karma of the soul.

Here one may wonder what is the real connection between this kid and the mother, father etc. it is true that  there is no real link, they are different souls all together but for the cleansing purpose biologically they are linked together. this is a beautifully written program that never fails.

Real life example

The soul agrees to deeply burry the past life memories before it takes a shape, so that the current birth is not complicated with the past life. but then, a times exceptions happens. please see one such real life incident below.

Shanti Devi Incident

please read below. this is one of the real life incident that happened during 1930s where even Mahata Gandhi got interested & involved after hearing the reliable news. Sri Gandhi even spoke to Shanti Devi and asked her to come and live with his ashram.

Please also see the book published on Shanti Devi incident called “I have lived before”

Hope you all start the Karma cleansing exercise Today !! it is worrying to think bad Karma can be accumulated by even bad thoughts!

All the Best for You!

Swayam Vara Mantra to clear the delay in getting Married

Marriage

For all those Young eligible bachelors or spinsetrs, who are still worried about their delay in marriage, THIS IS FOR YOU!. Please make a Prayer to Lord Ganesha by chanting the following mantra 108 times a day in the morning.

Swayam Vara Mantra

Om Hreem Yoginim Yogeshwarim Yoga Bhayankaree
Sakala Sthavarajangamasya Mukha Hridayam Mama
Vasamakarshaya Swaha.

Yes the mantra is that of  Devi, but you are praying this infront of Lord Ganesha!

The above mantra is very powerful and effective for young people who are stuck with delay in marriage. Please recite this mantra 108 times after taking the bath in the morning. The prayers should be offered in front of the photograph / idol of Lord Ganesha.  You would start seeing the result within 41 weeks if you do this without a break.

Procedure below!

Collect Ixora flower(known as chethy flower in the south), collect 108 of them, remove the middle thread in it. (if it has it, most of them have) and keep it ready for use. warm up some ghee in a cup (not boiling hot). now we need an idol or framed photo here. it i of Lord Ganesha . Standing infront of Lord’s picture, take one flower, dip in the ghee and submit to lord Ganesha while reciting Swayam vara mantra 1 time. Repeat the whole process 108 times as you have 108 flowers. Please do this for the 7 consecutive days. That makes the first cycle.

You now need to wait for 3 months. then repeat the process again. For example if you start doing this 1st January 2011, then we do this from 1st to 7th January. Then wait for 3months. the next cycle would start from 1st April and finish by 7th April. The process needs to be repeated for the next quarter that is from  1st July to 7th July, and then finally from 1st October to 7th October.

So you are doing this 4 times in a year and each time when you do this, you do it for 7 consecutive days. once you have finished, 1 year with this pooja, result would be just around the corner. Please have faith in Lord Ganesha who would bust all the obstacles you are facing!

Of course you do not really have to select January 1st as the start date, but your would prefer a date to start that is most convenient for you, that is after considering the “safe period” when you can sit infront of the Lord’s photo & Pray. You know it better!

I have seen Young people where they having serious affliction at the 7th house of marriage or its Lord. These are the people who would have a serious delay in getting married. The above mantra is very useful for them.

All the Best for You!

Sandana Gopala mantra for help getting Progeny

Mother Yashodhara & Toddler Gopalakrishna

For all those married couples who are not yet blessed with a child even years after the marriage, THIS IS FOR YOU!. Please make a Prayer to Bala Gopala Krishna by chanting the following mantra 108 times a day in the morning.

Om Devaki Sudha Govinda
Vasudeva Jagath Pathe
Dehimey Thanayam
Krishna Thwamaham
Saranam
Kadhahaa Deva Deva
Jagannatha
Gothra Vridhi Karap Prabho
Dehimey Thanayam Sheegram
Ayushmandham Yashashreenam !

The above mantra is very powerful and effective for couples with progeny issues. Please recite this mantra after taking the bath in the morning. The prayers should be offered in front of the photograph / idol of Toddler Krishna. Please visualise Toddler Gopala Krishna fully in your mind while reciting the above mantra. Please recite the above mantra 108 times a day and you would start seeing the result within 41 weeks if you do this without a break. There is a way of doing this mantra together with Vigneswara Pooja to makes it much more effective in getting the desired result. I shall explain this here.

If you collect Ixora flower(known as chethy flower in the south), collect 108 of them, remove the middle thread in it. (if it has it, most of them have) and keep it ready for use. warm up some ghee in a cup (not boiling hot). now we need two idols or framed photos here. One is for Lord Ganesha  and other is for Toddler Krishna. standing infront of their picture, take one flower, dip in the ghee and submit to lord Ganesha while reciting Sandana gopala mantra 1 time. repeat the whole process 108 times as you have 108 flowers. Please do this for the 7 consecutive days. That makes the first cycle. All the flowers you are submitting to Lord Ganesha one by one!

You now need to wait for 3 months. then repeat the process again. For example if you start doing this 1st January 2011, then we do this from 1st to 7th January. Then wait for 3months. the next cycle would start from 1st April and finish by 7th April. The process needs to be repeated for the next quarter that is from  1st July to 7th July, and then finally from 1st October to 7th October.

So you are doing this 4 times in a year and each time when you do this, you do it for 7 consecutive days. once you have finished, 1 year with this pooja, result would be just around the corner. Please have faith in Lord Krishna, he would appear as your son if you complete this pooja devotionally!

Of course you do not really have to select January 1st as the start date, but your would prefer a date to start that is most convenient for you, that is after considering the “safe period” when you can sit infront of the Lord’s photo & Pray. You know it better!

I have seen couple’s charts where both of them having serious affliction at the 5th house of children. These are the people who would have a serious delay in getting children. The above mantra is very useful for them. Of course side by side, you are expected to do the medication as advised by the Physician. I have seen many cases where doctors have given all clear, there is no medical reason but still children are not born even after 3 to 5 years of marriage.  Without cleansing the 5th afflictions, the medicine would be of less help. Remedial measures works like a charm if done devotionally!

All the Best for You!

Muhurta

Muhurta – Beneficial Date & Time for the auspicious events in our Life

Muhurta

There are mainly four sections with in Vedic Astrology. First one is Ganita, second one is Phalita, third one is Muhurta, and the last one is Prasna Astrology. Muhurta or electional astrology has a very important role in choosing appropriate date and time for conducting auspicious events in our life. For example events like  naming a child,starting school education for children, a marriage,constructing a house, house warming ceremony,  starting cultivation etc. There are a number of events in our life that are very important to us. During the Vedic period, much importance was given to Eelecting a particular date and time for such events. These are the happy moments of our life and Eelecting the right date and time is very very important for the auspiciousness of the event.

First and foremost, As a general rule we avoid the following days for any events!

1. Tuesday

2. Saturday

There is a lot of fire and air connected with those 2 days, so it is very much advisable to avoid those 2 days for any good events.

The event lagna and the karaka(significator) for the event should be an auspicious one for the event we are conducting. If we are doing a marriage, the Karaka for marriage should be in a favourable position. if we are starting a course or education, then Jupiter should be favorably placed from lagna or should be aspecting the lagna or the bhava of education etc.

Moon also play an important role in choosing the date and time. Chandra bala (strength) is very imporatnt for any event.If you remember, in the ancient days, the marriage was always conducted during the night when Chandra has control and more strength. even now in Northern part of India, marriage is conducted during the night. it is due to people preference it has been changed to day time, a typical example of  “New generation not showing due respect and consideration”  towards Vedic Astrology. There are a number of features associated with any day to check to arrive at a very auspicious date and time. So it is a tedious job for an astrologer to elect a favorable date and time for an event.

More on this later,

Soundarya Lahari

Recite Ananda Lahari – Vedic remedy for attaining the Complete Happiness

Devi

Soundarya Lahari means waves of beauty. It contains 100 stanzas which praises the beauty of AaDhi Para shakthi Devi. The first 41 stanza is known as Ananda Lahari( waves of happiness). It takes only 30 minutes to recite  the whole Aananda Lahari 1 full time. Regularly reciting this mantra would help one person to attain all his life long wishes & brings happiness in one’s life. I am only quoting 7 stanza from the Ananda Lahari that are specifically useful for people suffering from any sort of skin disease. Please recite this set of sloka on a daily basis after taking a bath in the morning, and sitting infront of Devi’s Photo, while offering her your Pujas & respect for Matha AaDhi Para Shakthi Devi ( Swaroop of Devi Parvathy can be considered as  Devi Aadhi Para Shakthi) – who is the ultimate resort for all living beings including the Thrimurtis in Puranas.

Sloka 1
Shivah shakthya yukto yadi bhavati shaktah prabhavitum
Na chedevam devo na khalu kusalah spanditumapi;
Atas tvam aradhyam Hari-Hara-Virinchadibhir api
Pranantum stotum vaa katham akrta-punyah prabhavati

Sloka 30
Sva-deh’odbhutabhir ghrnibhir animadyabhir abhito
Nishevye nitye tvamahamiti sada bhavayati yah;
Kim-ascharyam tasya tri-nayana-samrddhim trinayato
Maha-samvartagnir virchayati nirajana-vidhim.

Sloka 31
Cautuh-shashtya tantraih sakalam atisamdhaya bhuvanam
Sthitas tat-tat-siddhi-prasava-para-tantraih pasupatih;
Punas tvan-nirbandhad akhila-purusarth’aika ghatana-
Svatantram te tantram khsiti-talam avatitaradidam.

Sloka 32
Sivah saktih kamah kshitir atha ravih sithakiranah
Smaro hamsah sakrastadanu cha para-mara-harayah;
Amee hrllekhabhis tisrbhir avasanesu ghatitha
Bhajante varnaste tava janani nam’avayavatham.

Sloka 33
Smaram yonim lakshmim trithayam idam adau tava manor
Nidhay’aike nitye niravadhi-maha-bhoga-rasikah;
Bhajanti tvam chintamani-guna-nibaddh’aksha-valayah
Sivagnau juhvantah surabhi-ghrta-dhara’huti-sataih.

Sloka 34
Sariram twam sambhoh sasi-mihira-vakshoruha-yugam
Tav’atmanam manye bhagavati nav’ atmanam anagham;
Atah seshah seshityayam ubhaya-saadharana taya
Sthitah sambandho vaam samarasa-parananda-parayoh.

Sloka 35
Manas tvam vyoma tvam marud asi marut saarathir asi
Tvam aastvam bhoomis tvayi parinathayam na hi param;
Tvam eva svatmanam parinamayithum visva-vapusha
Chidanand’aakaram Shiva-yuvati-bhaavena bibhrushe.

Sloka 36
Tavaagna chakrastham thapana shakthi koti dhyudhidharam,
Param shambhum vande parimilitha –paarswa parachitha
Yamaradhyan bhakthya ravi sasi suchinama vishaye
Niraalokeloke nivasathi hi bhalokha bhuvane

Those people who are suffering from any sort of dermatic condition( skin disease), the above is the most powerful mantra for them. This is all about the beautiful explanation of Adhi Para Shakthi Devi’s Swaroop from head to foot. Even though it may appear as if it is praising Devi’s swaroop, actually it is explaining how the universe and the beings are created from the day 1 of creation. If you could recite the whole 41 Stanza, that would be really good, if not Sloka 1 is to start with, then  sloka 30 to 36 would be very helpful for curing any disease associated with your skin. Please recite this for a period of 9 months continuously. Please try to get the Soundarya lahari mantra book in your local language so that you can learn and recite it with out any error. There are plenty of books available in the market. for people who do not have skin disease, please recite the whole 41 stanza.

This is a time proven astrological remedy for skin disease, I am 100 percent sure you would start seeing the result if  done continuously with devotion for a period of 9 months.

Best Regards

Buying a Car

Auspicious time for buying a Car

In a Horoscope, Fourth house is called Vahana Sthana. Venus is the planet of Pleasure, Luxury, so naturally Venus become the karaka for the Vehicle. Mars represents the structural aspect of the Vehicle as Mars is for metal, engineering. machine etc. The function of the car or a Vehicle is to transport people, or conveyance. Transportation is the use of the car. Mercury is the planet associated with transportation, short distance travel, Comunication etc. so Mercury also needs to be considered while buying or selling a car.

Benefic aspect on the 4th house, 4th lord, or Venus would be very helpful for the purchase of a car when the favourable maha dasa or sub dasa is running, or even by a good planet transit over the 4th house. The association of the benefic planet could be by aspect or conjunction.

Please make sure these planets are in direct motion during the time you are buying a car. That is the 4th lord, Venus and Mercury. If those planets are afflicted, the structural and the functional aspect of the car would be seriously affected in the future. The Ascendant at the time of buying the car is also very important to consider. it should be free from afflictions as well.
