Saptarishis Astrology Nadi Classes in Mumbai - Revised Timings
1. Now instead of 4 Saturdays a month (2 hours each) , it would be only two saturdays (4 hours each session) i.e. on every 2nd and 4th Saturday from 12 noon to 4 pm or 4.30 pm with 15 mins lunch break. This is to facilitate Pune and Gujarat students who had expressed their inconvenience in travelling every week to Mumbai.
2. So far 19 students came in on 19th Oct but we are accepting only 3 more students till 26th of Oct. After that no batch till one year.

At first, thanks to fantastic accesing knowledge of astrology in this way. I want to ask if you know anything more about Hora Ratnam Part 2 and Bhrigu Nadi from R.Santhanam & Associates. In the book, the last pages contain these forthcoming titles. I also want to ask whether it will continue further translation Tatkalin Bhrigu Prashna in Saptarishis Astrology Magazine. Thank you for the reply.

Narasimha Rao Thank you for your kind words about me. I am truly touched by your dedication and sacrifice for Jyotish.
If one genuinely wants to help someone selflessly, one can make good predictions irrespective of calculations and techniques. However, it was always obvious to me that rasi chart did not have enough degrees of freedom (e.g. so many twins with significantly different lives!). I instinctively believed divisional charts taught by Parasara were the key. That's why I dedicated my life to finer techniques. Good predictions can be made without astrology also. But the goal is, by the time this life ends, to leave behind something "objective" that works reasonably.

A word about "following": While doing the work we owe the world and came here for, we develop new debts and desires and get bound in that web. It is far more difficult to remain unaffected by praise and following, than even by criticism and abuse! If ever one finds some "perfect knowledge", all one needs is ONE good person to transfer it to. Vimalananda was wise and lucky to have his life story and spiritual teachings published by someone else AFTER he left this world!

Yes, I was very active during 1999-2005 on yahoogroups (esp vedic-astrology) and seriously into Jyotish researches. Things changed in 2005. I got detached from astrology, became more interested in spirituality and became more active on vedic-wisdom yahoogroup dedicated to spirituality. Also was busy creating the resources needed for the "do homam by yourself" movement (now, there are thousands of people across the world doing a fire ritual by themselves every day/week for spiritual progress and increased dharma in the world - after all, worshipping the divine in fire is common to so many religions/traditions and fire is considered sacred and a representative of god on earth!).
A few years later, I restarted Jyotish researches. But, in a couple of years, I made the blunder of switching to Sri Surya Siddhanta (SSS). It took me a while to realize my error and then I reversed my stance. This blunder was a blessing in disguise though. It taught me humility and introspection, slowed me down and forced me to simply give up everything and start from scratch.
As Vimalananda taught, khandana-mandana (breaking and rebuilding) is needed for true progress. It applies in spiritual sadhana as well as any subject of rishis. One should be willing to tear down existing structures, before building something that lasts long.
As I started from scratch, I questioned ayanamsa and even the definition of divisional charts. For example, this enabled me to discover the errors in standard D2 and D24 definitions, which I already published. After studying Parasara carefully and contemplating, some pieces of the puzzle are now falling in place one after the other. I am in no hurry and will take my sweet time before I publish everything. But the reboot forced by SSS fiasco has been the best thing to happen. Of course, this fiasco may have made some people disillusioned with me - quite reasonable.

Money and power/following are equally binding on ego. The tamasik types run after money and even cheat. The rajasik types are proud of their scholarship and/or seek success/following and praise for their contributions, though they don't cheat for it. The sattwik types do their work calmly, with the same attitude irrespective of the response, surrender it to Lord in the end and leave contented.
We can't do much about the tamasik ones. But even the better of us are honestly of the rajasik type. We can try to transform ourselves into the sattwik type, before pointing fingers at others. Why criticize others, when we too can improve?
In fact, without increasing sattwa in one, one cannot hope to get any real knowledge of rishis...

Just wanted to say that if you did the coding for this website and put it together yourself, you should be building websites for a living. You should be very proud of your design. I've seen a lot of websites but not many measure up to the standard of yours. Excellent job!

As per a recent comment on articles of Ratra ji on upa-pada giving excellent results, I found the article on your website and tried this method on some of the cases I am aware of and so far it has worked out well in all the cases i.e. wherein one can examine the results retrospectively. Except that the ability to apply rules to come up with a prediction also requires experiential knowledge that I lack as a novice so struggling to understand on what this means if - the girl has a reasonably ok chart with Jupiter and Moon aspect on upapada whereas the boy has a ketu aspect on upapada with no benefic aspects. Would the boy's destiny result in breaking of marriage or would girl's destiny protect her marriage given the two benefics ?
Excellent article and thanks to SA and its contributors for a wonderful service to this ancient science of astrology and humanity at large, as marriage is one of the most complex decisions to make in life. I noticed a line in the article that says " Hence, placement sign is called Pitree Bhava. This concept has given excellent results in age calculations, in thousands of horoscopes.".
Has this i.e. age calculations using this method, been already shared in one of the earlier articles on SA?

A Note from a Editor from West
When we write an article we must think in the readers and their level of knowledge. But most important we should be able to summarize the important message we want to pass, and is hard to see the things from the perspective of others What I have seen as the worst in Jyotish articles is the excess of information, too much description of the positions of the planets and their relationships . This often hides someone who has no true knowledge of astrology. If you describe all planetary relationships and does not indicate what is actually important to a particular event... What is the knowledge that you are transmitting ? I have seen comments depreciating authors like B.V. Raman who transmitted their knowledge in the style of the classics of Jyotish . My view is that they are unable to understand when a great astrologer is capable to separate a factor so we can balance it with the other factors to male our interpretations . It is very difficult to identify and isolate these factors on a chart and establish a principle . That was the ability of the Rishis and what I have seem in the nowadays writings is an exhaustive and too verbose description of planetary relationships, who most often do not bring anything original and are even unable to clarify precisely what is already established as the astrological knowledge.

Buddh and riN
Bhatt Narayana of Chamatkar Chintamani says: how can one repay his riN when he has not Mercury in 11th house at birth? In other words, Mercury in 11th (i.e. 6th from 6th) house enables one to discharge his debts (both monetary and moral debts).
There are three kinds of riN (ऋण ṛṇa) or fundamental obligations to be fulfilled.
1) Deva riN (Indebtedness or obligations towards God and all his blessings. This can be repaid through charitable work, rituals, sacrifices etc.).
1) Rishi riN (Indebtedness or obligations towards sages, mentor etc. This can be ward off through acquiring and spreading knowledge).
3) Pitr riN (Indebtedness or obligations towards parents. This can be fulfilled by taking care of parents, offering their final rites, and procreating children to continue lineage).
Some philosophical texts maintain four types of debt (riN).
1) Pitra riN (indebtedness or obligations towards father and mother)
2) Brahma riN(indebtedness or obligations towards God almighty)
3) Deva riN (indebtedness or obligations towards deities)
4) Risi/Guru riN (indebtedness or obligations towards sage, mentor, teacher)
Even some later Indian canons added two more debts: Nri or Manushya riN and Bhuta riN.
Come to the point. Mercury in 11th house renders one to payback (or at least try to payback) his/her debts. Note the house lord, associated with Mercury; or lord of 11th house where Mercury resided (whether it is krura/somya, sattvik/rajjasic/tamasik, etc). This indicates the “type of riN to be repaid” and the “way or mean” how native repays obligations.
