Chandra Baghawan (MOON) – Thingalur

Main Deity- Kailasanathar
Goddess – Periyanayakiamman
Holy tree – Plantain tree and Vilva tree
Theertham – Chandra Theertham and River cauvery
   Thingalur is the sthalam for Chandran.Thingal in Tamil means Chandran and hence the name Thingalur.Chandran is the Lord of Kadaga Rasi and he faces the South-East direction.The Adi Devatha is water; prathyathi Devatha is Gowri; his colour is white and his vahana is white horse. The grain associated with him is paddy, rice; the flower – white arali; fabric – white cloth; gem – pearl;rice – Curdrice.
   The Devas and asuras were churning the paarkadal using Mandira Malai and the snake Vasuki. The asuras held the head portion of the snake and the devas, the tail portion. When Lord Vishnu was distributing the Amrutham amongst the devas, at the behest of Sukracharya, one of the asuras in the guise of a deva consumed the nectar.
  Suryan and Chandran noticed this and complained to Lord Vishnu.  An angry Vishnu used his chakrayudham (discus) to cut the asura into two and threw them away. The head joined with a snake’s body to become Rahu Bhagavan. The body portion kept growing because the asura had consumed Amrutham.  This later joined with the head of a snake and became Kethu Bhagavan.
  Now, Rahu and Kethu did not forgive Suryan and Chandran.  Rahu went after Chandran and started consuming him.  It is here that Chandran prayed to Lord Siva and got his blessings. Shiva blessed Chandran with the power to grow back to full size in 15 days after being consumed by Rahu.  That is why we have the waxing and waning moon.  Shiva also blessed Chandran by adorning Chandran on his forehead so that anyone who prays Shiva will have to pray Chandran.
  Another story for waxing and Wanning period of chandran is,King Dakshan gave all his 27 daughters in marriage to Chandran. Those 27 wives of Chandran are the 27 stars in Tamil Calendar. As Chandran’s favourite was Rohini and he spent most of his time with her, the others complained about this to their father. King Dakshan asked Chandran to treat all of them equally, which Chandran refused.  An angry Dakshan, cursed Chandran that all his beauty and brightness will disappear slowly everyday. A worried Chandran, on the advice of Lord Brahma, then performed penance on Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva appeared before him and adorned his forehead with the crescent-shaped Chandran. Shiva then came to be known as Chandrasekaran also.  He blessed Chandran to regain his beauty and brightness slowly day by day.  This waxing period of the moon is called Sukla Paksham or Valarpirai.  Chandran gets back all his beauty and attains full brightness on Full moon day or pournami.  From Pournami to the full moon day he again starts loosing his beauty and brightness till the New moon day or Ammavasai.  This waning period of the moon is called Krishna Paksham or Theipirai.

marriage between a boy and girl

There are 10 types of matches considered for marriage between a boy and girl. Apart from analysis of house 2nd, 4th, 7th these 10 porutham (10 matches) considered important. Rashi (Moon sign) and Nakshatra constellation are important. you can find it yourself with the following information. In Tamil Tradition marriage is considered an important part in life. So it is called ‘Aayiram kalathu payir’ (Plant of thousand years). Our ancient astrology gurus with the divine help created these 10 porutham concept to help find a good match for a boy or girl. In Tamil Nadu and most part of India the first step in a marriage is Analysis of the horoscope of the bride and groom. The marriage will be considered if only the horoscope / jathaka matches.

There are three types of results for each porutham:

Uthamam – Good
Mathimam – Not Bad
Athamam – Bad

10 Matches are:

1. Dhina portham
2. Gana porutham
3. Mahendra porutham
4. Sthree Dheerkam
5. Yoni porutham
6. Rasi porutham
7. Rasi athipathi porutham
8. Vasiya porutham
9. Rajju porutham
10. Vethai porutham

1. Dhina porutham
Dhina portham is essential for prosperous life with out poverty and diseases. You have to count from Girl’s Nakshatra to Boy’s Nakshatra. While counting if you get 2,4,6,8,9,11,13,15,18,20,24 or 26 there is Dina porutham exist between the two. The result is Uthamam.

While counting except 1st quarter in 12th, except 4th quarter in 14th and except 3rd quarter in 16th are Mathimam.

All others and Ashtama Rashi Nakshatras are Athamam or no match.

Ashtama Rashi means 8th rasi. For example 8th for Tarurus is Saggittarius. Moolam 1,2,3,4 Pooradam 1,2,3,4 Uthiradam 1 belongs to that rashi. When girls Nakshatra belongs to Rishab (Taurus) All nakshatras of Saggittarius won’t match.

Aega Nakhsatra / Same Nakshatra:

When both boy and girl have Rohini, Thiruvathirai, Poosam, Maham, Hastham, Thirivonam Dhina porutham will be uthamam.

When both have Ashwini, Bharani, Karthikai, Mrigashrish, Punarpoosam, Uthiram, Chithirai, Anusham the Dina portuham result will be Mathimam.

When both have same rashi boy’s nakshatra should precede girls. When both have same Nakshatra should precede that of the girl.

The rest 13 won’t match.

If you get 27 while counting match is considered, only if the rasi is same otherwise there is no match.

While counting from girl’s Nakshatra if boy’s comes as 7th, it is called ‘vatham’. While counting from boy’s nakshatra if girl’s comes as 22nd it is called ‘vinashika’. Vahtam and ‘Vinashika’ sould be rejected.

This is primary method for calculating dhina porutham. There is other method using Janmam, Anu Janmam, thri janmam. This is least used method, hence I am not explaining it here.

2. Gana porutham

If both boy and girl belongs to Rakshash gana the match is uthamam.

If boy belongs to rakshash Gana and the girl belongs to any Gana the match will be Mathimam.

If girl belongs to rakshash Gana and there is no match if boy belongs to any other gana.

This match will determine mangala or auspiciousness.

3. Mahendra porutham
If counted from girl’s nakshatra if you get 4,7,10,13,16,19,22,25 the match is uthamam. Otherwise no match.

This match is considered for offspring (children)

4. Sthree Theerkam
While counting from the Girl’s nakshatra if boy’s comes above 13 the match is uthamam. If it comes above 7 mathima porutham.

This porutham gives good longevity and prosperity.

03) On First Seva of Suprabhatam, the very first opening of golden Door of Moolavar is done by a Golla (cow herder-Edayan) in the presence of Priests from Jeer Mutt and Temple officials. This honour of giving first darshan to a shepherd is for his community services to Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) when he was in penance in Hill. Doors, Cowherds, gesture to them on first seva are the indications of Sanis karagathvam.

04) The white spot (pacha karpuram) on the Chin of Lord Balaji reminds us the Hit suffered at the hands of Sri Ananthazhwar who had thrown an Iron spade on Lord when later came as an young Lad to help the Pregnant Wife of Ananthazhwar in their Dedicated Services in Nandavanam(Garden). Chin, tooth in Face are under the karagathvam of Saturn besides Iron Implements used in Farms, Garden, Labour help are also indicated by Sani. Even now one could see this crowbar in Entrance.

05) Sage Bhrigu, who went on a mission to find out the most Satvic Nature among Trio, having failed to see this quality with Brahma and Sivan, came to Lord Vishnu and finding him in Yoga Nidhra without bothering him, kicked upon Lord chest which is the abode of Lakshmi. Sri Vishnu apologised to Bhrigu for hurting his feet which hit the hard chest and hence massaged the feet of sage. By this act, Lord made Lakshmi get Angered, Humiliated/Insulted to make her leave Vaikuntam to the Earth. Disgrace, Insults Humiliation, thus arised are due to Sanis karagathvam.

06) Lord Srinivasar was desperately wandering in earth without Food and sleep to find out Lakshmi who left Vaikuntham on above reason. He finally reached Sheshadhri and took shelter in an Ant-hill to Meditate. Desperation,wandering without food,disappointment are Sanis karagam.

07) Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) Stayed in an Ant-Hill Under a Tamarind tree at Seshachalam and came out only to protect Cow and Calf (Brahma and Shiva) when a Shepherd tried to hit them, Emperuman Received the Blow on his Head and bleeded. Hence Golden Kireetam Presented by Akasa Raja is adorned on Fridays to Heal this injury. Ant Hill,Tamarind tree,Compassion in  receiving the  Blow are denoted by Sani…

08) Sri AdhiVaraha was the First God to occupy and own this Hill who had permitted Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) to stay here on condition all pujas and Naivedyam must be offered to him First and all devotees of Lord Balaji must offer their worship to him First before going to Srivari temple. Dependent and one who is obligated permanently are under Sanis karagathvam.

09) Vakulamalika, the old lady was directed by AdiVarahan to Render kainkaryum to Lord Srinivasar when he was in penance in Ant-hill at Seshachalam. She was serving food to Lord then and rendering kainkarium. She was the incarnation of Yasoda and desired to see the marriage of Lord Srinivasar as she could not see then the marriage of Lord Krishna with Rukmani and Sathya bhama. Pottu (Kitchen) in Temple is believed to be under the supervision of Vakulamalika. Compassion to Old aged Lady/ Gesture to Aged shows the influence of Sani graha.

10) Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) Borrowed money from Kuberan for his marriage with Padmavathi by signing a Promissory note to pay with interest duly prepared by Brahma, witness signed by Siva and a peepal tree known as Ashwathm. Kubera is mentioned in Vedas as ‘Chief of spirit of darkness and described as Dwarf, with  pot-belly, humpback, deformed ugly body with eight teeth, three legs and one small eye and a normal one. He is the Custodian of Nava nidhis of wealth to souls and half brother of Ravana. Permanent Debt, Mortgage and Financier, Ugly Description shows the influence of Sani graha.

11) Due to Own Sankalpam, Lord Srinivasar is away from his consort Padmavathi and stands alone in Tirumala while Thayar is in Thiruchanur Separately. Similarly Tirumala Hill is isolated from outside influence and confined to Spirituality. Sani Denotes Isolation, Seperation, spirituality.

12) Tirumala Hill in 3200 Ft above the sea level is a mountainous region with Cold and Dry Climate invariably round the year. Mountains, Cold -Dry Climate, Rocks/ Stones denotes Sanis karagam.

13) In Astronomy, various websites including describe Saturn is Farthest planet from Earth and Saturn has SEVEN RINGS of thin flat consisting of numerous narrow ringlets made up of Ice particles that travel around the planet. Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) is also in SEVEN HILLs and called as ‘Lord of Seven Hills”.

14) Tirumala is the only Hamlet in the world that has Four Dams for the tiny Town spread within a radius of 3 KM. All Four Dams were constructed on Holy Theerthams to meet the water Needs of town. Sani denotes Dams, Irrigation, Reservoir that retard/ slow/Regulate/reduce the Flow of Water.

15) Dhruvabera (moolavar) apart from four Uttchavars: Bhoga Srinivasar, Koulvu Srinivasar, Ugra Srinivasar and Malayappa Swami either together or separately participate in Various Rituals time to time. Golu Srinivasar Darbar is Daily Routine Seva when Idol is brought out to kalyanamantapam to read before the Lord, the income such as Arjitha seva/Hundi collections on the previous day and expenditure followed by reading of Panchangam of previous/ current day. Koluvu Srinivasar is offered with the prasadam of Mixture of Fried Gingelley Seeds (Ellu) and Jaggery. On Anivara Asthnam, a procedure performed during july every year, yearly accounts are submitted to Koulu Srinivasar when new books are issued for Next financial year. Administration, Discipline, Prasadam including Gingelly seeds signify the influence of Sani Graha.

16) Ugra Srinivasar was the original Prachina Vigraham very long ago. Before Many centuries when this Idol was taken out exposing to sun rays, Big Fire was caught during Brahmotshvam. Lord gave a Divine Direction through an Archakar not to take out Ugra Srinivasar. Since then, this idol is taken out for Procession Before Sun Rise on wee hours of Kaisika Dvadasi day only which is named after the Raga of song rendered by Devotee Chandala Nambadavan. Signifying the fact, Sani is for darkness and Sun is for light, Sani attains Uchcha in Thula Rasi where Sun is Neecha and Vice Versa in Mesha Rasi. It is believed when Sani opened his eyes first time, Sun went in to Eclipse. Darkness, Compassion to Low Caste Devotee and above episode shows Sanis Karagam.

17) On Every Thursday, Tirupavadai Seva is Conducted when one can have ‘Netra Darsanam’ as otherwise the Deity Sports a wide Thiruman Kappu which almost Covers Half the Eyes of Lord and on this Seva When Thiruman Kappu is Peeled off, Lord First Gaze after opening Eyes fall on Mortals. Because It has so much power, it is made to fall on the Heap of ‘Pulihora'(Tamarind Rice) directly in front of him thereby sanctifying it and reducing the intensity of his Gaze. This Tamarind Rice acts like a Paavada protetcing devotees from his powerful Gaze. Then Lord is adorned with a thin Thiruman kappu and this stays till Friday morning during Thirumanjanam. This reminds us the significance connected with the qualities( guna) of Sani graha.

18) Lord Srinivasar addressing Thirumalai Nambi as ‘Thatha'(grandpa) came in disguise of an hunter to demand water from Nambi to quench his thirst by puncturing the pot which Nambi was bringing for Thirumanjanam to the Lord from far away Papavinasam. Next day, Emperuman again as same hunter approached Nambi and discharged an arrow near Hillock to create a fountain called as Akasaganga and showed him this nearby water spring. Grand Father is karagam of Sani.

19) Adiseshan (First one to serve) serves Emperuman as Umbrella, Simhasanam, Paduka, bed. He will never get separated from Lord and render Kainkarium to him always. Adhiseshan manifested in the form of Seshachalam Hill to hold Lord Srinivasar in his hood. To Honour his devotion and dedicated service, Lord Srinivasar wears Nagabaranam in his Right hand. Faithful Servent and Selfless Services, Slaves are Sanis karagathvam.

20) Annamayya (Annamachariar) was imprisoned by King Saluva Narasinga Raya of Penugonda when Saint refused to sing a song on king which he demanded similar to the song of Lord Venkateswara composed by Sri Annamayya. Saint who was in prison chained by shackles sang a song on Emperuman with agony and the divine power of song resulted in chains getting broken. Similar to this, Devotees are also imprisoned invariably without their knowledge when they pass through Vertical Cellular Enclosures: for Arjitha seva(paid) and Horizontal Cellular Enclosures (kunndu) on Free Sudarshan seva with many gates Closed/Opened and made to wait in Cells time to time. Sani Grahas Symbolic Sign is Four Small Squares in the shape of window. Hence Sani denotes Prison, Gate, Window, Chain, Warden. Interestingly Bhoga Srinivasar is Permanently Chained with Moolavar by Golden Shackles.

21) Tirumala is the largest Collection Center in the World for Human Hair, exporting to other nations for Amino acid production. Human Hair is Sanis karagathvam. Tradition believes that No one in Tirumala is supposed to adorn their hair (kesam) with Flowers to maintain Spirituality, Austerity, Humility and Simplicity reminding the directive of Sri Ramanujar. Hair (kesam), above gunas indicate Sanis influence.

22) Lord Srinivasar is subjetced to undergo pressure to give Darshan to Devotees almost 21 hours with only Breakup of just three Hours and His time for Partaking the Prasadam is limited only to just few minutes. Yet Lord is compassionate to give darshan to all devotees with little break which reminds the karagathvam of Sani graha on Hard work, Dedication to Work, patience, compassion.

23) The Geological Survey of India (GSI) Declared Tirumala Hill as ‘National Geological Monuments’ for its Marvel on Eparchaean Unconformity as the Granite and Gneiss of Hill underwent ‘Inundation by Sea’ several Millions years ago and the presence of ‘Ripple Marks’ on the Quartzite Rocks bears Testimony to this fact. Another feature is ‘Sila Thoranam’ at a distance of 1 KM from temple wherein two rock groups precariously hang in the air with each others support forming an Arch. It is a portion of Quartzine left unsupported over a Width of 10 Metres and gap below the Arch is formed by Wind Erosion aided by action of water as Scientific fact is that TIRUMALA was completely UNDER SEA Several Millions years ago. As per various Puranas, Lord Srinivasar made this hill as habitation on a day prior to 28 Mahayugas much before the present kaliyuga. Geological wonders, ancient period, Past, Time, History are Sanis karagam.

24) Devotees Experience Delay often standing in Queue and while nearing the Thirumamani mandapam leading to Moolavar, they will tend to be ‘Mudavan’ by limping slowly to extend the duration of darshan of Lord and with the glimpse of Emperuman, they become ‘Manthan” as they forget what they wanted to seek from Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji) and after coming out from Darshan, they are not able to recollect in Mind the Divine Swarupum of Lord Sri Srinivasa (Balaji). Delay, Slowness, Desperation, are Sani’s karagathvam. Also Sani is called as ‘Mudavan'(lame) and ‘Manthan'(inert mind) by nature.

25) Devotees pray to Lord Srinivasar with ‘Prarthanai'(vow) by climbing the hill on Foot up to the temple, Tonsuring the Head, some times collecting money through ‘Biksha’, Rolling in Prakaram on Stone (angapradekshanam) etc. Tonsuring Hair will Make our Ego, self pride surrender to Lord, Rolling over Stone in Prakaram makes our body surrender to Emperuman. Rolling on Stone, Biksha, Climbing on foot, Fasting and other tough vows indicates the karagathvam of Sani.

26) Old aged people, Handicapped, Disabled Devotees are given special Direct entry to have Darshan without any ticket which only in Tirumala Temple, this consideration is shown in line with the compassion of Lord Srinivasar. Uttchva murti of Emperuman even reaches out masses nowadays in major cities, towns, villages and even crossing across the sea to bless all walks of people in their living places. Old, disabled, weaker section and masses(public) are denoted by Sani graha.

27) Thirumala Tirupathi Devasthaanam (TTD) renders many Social Scheme like Free Food to all Devotees, Free accomodation, Free transport services, Carrying Luggage freely from downhill for devotees climbing hill on foot, Yearly One Lac Free Marriages, Rehabilitation centers for Blind, Deaf, Orphan Children, Old Aged Homes for Destitutes, Free medical treatment for poor, Free distribution of spectacles for old people, Hospitals, schools and colleges for socially backward and downtrodden people children are few to be mentioned. This Coincides with the Social outlook of Sani graha caring for poorer, aged, handicapped and people of ill-health besides the socially backward section.

28) Dhruvabera(moolavar) idol does not conform to any agamic rule as Lord is above all rules with self manifested ‘svayambhoo’ with his eyes are in ‘sama drishti’ showing divine grace to devotees. Lord subjected himself to undergo ‘Self Test’ to Re-establish through Sri Ramanuja Muni that He is None other than Sriman Narayanan himself when doubts were raised then by few section. Also Uthsavar Malayappa swami is ‘svayambhoo murti’ (self manifested) when this idol was located in a place called ‘malayappan konai’ in hill. So he is called as ‘malai kuniya Ninra Perumal”. This Matches the guna of Sani in ‘self testing’ for TRUTH through Sanyasi as Truth and sages are denoted by Sani graha.

Like Hill which bent upon to receive Lord Malayappa swami Idol, Emperuman bent upon to bless the devotees who approach him with devotion and total surrender. Saturn is quite opposite to the quality of Concious ego, personal pride, leadership, authority, generally akin to people normally influenced by Sun particularly politicians, government officials, personalities etc.They must seek the blessing of Lord with devotion and free from ego/ pride rather than mere confidence on the “Deal” of vow through Hundi otherwise they will have to experience “Raw deal” at the end.

Sani graha in this Kali yuga subjects us to undergo law of karma and makes us accept reality and finally leads us to the path of Dharma. King Dasaradhan, Thirukachi Nambi, Anjanayar all underwent few seconds of Sani grahas Negative results. Lord Srinivasar has taken avatar as ‘kali yuga kadavul’ to bless us free from the evil efforts of Sani graha. Emperuman who is adorned with Ornaments Studded with full of Diamonds reflect the bright rays of hope for Devotees, the fact remains Millions of years before, those Diamonds were in the form of Black Carbon (Sanis karagam) subjected to pressure by Earth Crest. Crows in group called as ‘Murder’ is often Seen to Rest in Rajagopuram of Tirumala temple in the Early morning hours before Sun Rise. Similar to this, a visit to Thiruvenkatam would kill all our sins as the name itself implies this.

Those horoscopes afflicted by Sun-Sani Mutual aspect, if Sani is adverse to Lagna, and  not well placed with Sani Dasa running, a visit to Tirumala on Saturday preferably in Purattasi and on kaisika Dvadasi day to worship Ugra Srinivasar with Prayaga Chakra in hand with his consorts when he is taken out on procession before Sun rise in wee hours would help them overcome difficulties.

Why Kachchi Varadharaja Temple is Guru Sthalam

upiter is known as Bruhaspathi or Deva Guru, the teacher of Devas. Jupiter Adhi Devada is Brahma. His vehicle known as ‘vahana’ is Elephant. Bird is Swan (Hamsa). Metal is Gold. Flower is white Mullai (lily), Gems are Yellow Sapphire & Topaz (Pushaparaham), Brahmin by caste, Language is Sanskrit, day is Thursday and Pulse (Dhaniyam) is Bengal gram. Jupiter denotes honey, sweet by taste, Colour is Yellow. Jupiter’s own signs are Saggitarius (Dhanur Rasi) & Pieces (Meena Rasi) and uttcha (exalted) in kataka (cancer) Rasi. Peepal tree is identified with Jupiter. His direction is North. Jupiter denotes following aspects in our life:

Teacher, priest, Barrister, magistrates, awards, winners, charity, Philosophers, Rituals, Religious missionaries, wealth, long distance Travel, minister, seers, grand audience, sound, vedic texts, Blessings, holy water, yagnyas, knowledge of sutras and smruthies, Devotion towards God, wood, good luck, Asariri (angelic aerial voice), bankers, financiers, boon for parenthood, Education, treasure, honour, elder brother, grace, Conferences, prosperity and progeny.

Jupiter represents brain, fat  & Liver. Jupiter represents husband in females horoscope. Jupiter is associated with principles of growth, expansion, Good fortune and tends to expand things wherever he aspects. Jupiter is known as one who propriates progeny (putra karaka) as well as wealth (Dhana karaka). Spirituality, Vedic Scriptures, shasthras are signified by Jupiter. Let us examine as to how Jupiter is connected to Kanchi and Sri Varadar (Varadharaja swamy of Athigiri Kshetram – Kanchipuram known also as Kancheevaram) sthalam.

1) Kanchi is one among the seven sacred cities – viz. Ayodhya, Mathura, Maya (Mayapuri), Kasi (Kashi), Kanchi, Avantika (Avanti), Dwaraka – that can bestow moksha. ‘Ka’ means Brahma and ‘Anjitham’ means who was worshipped. Since Lord Brahma worshipped Lord Vishnu as Varadan (giver of boons), this sthalam is known as ‘Kanchi’ or ‘kacchi’ in Tamil. Lord Brahma is the Adhi Devada of Deva Guru Bruhaspathi and hence Kanchi itself by name is connected to Deva Guru.

2) This temple name ‘Hasthigiri’ or ‘Atthigiri’ in Tamil is derived from legend that Airaavatam, the elephant of Indra had taken the form of a Hillock at Kanchi serving as the uttravedhi (second location) for Brahmas yaagam. Deva Guru vahana Is Elephant which denotes the kaaragathvam(propotiation) in this.

3) Lord Brahma wanted to worship Lord Narayana in ChaturBujam and went on long penance. Then an Asariri (divine voice) from Heaven informed him either he should perform one thousand Aswamedha yaagams or just one Aswamedha yaagam in a sacred place called ‘Sathya Vratha Kshetra’ which is known as ‘ Kanchi’. This means that a good deed performed in Kanchi will yield benefits by thousand times. ‘Asariri’  is the kaaragathva of Deva Guru Bruhaspathi and without grace of Guru, it is not possible to get divine voice.

4)  Brahma commanded Vishwa karma, the architect of demiGods to create the Utthara Vedhi for the yaagam on top of Hasthigiri. Brahma’s wife Saraswathi, due to an altercation with her husband took the form of a fast moving Vegavathi River to destroy the yaaga saalai. Then Lord Varadharaajar took the form of a dam (sethu) across the Vegavathi river and arrested the flow of furious river. Emperumans merciful glance banished the anger of Saraswathi and restored her to sense and made her join the ongoing yaagam. The original moolaver (main) deity of Lord Varadhan was carved out of Atthi Wood (fig tree) and was immersed in temple tank in a silver casket as per the order of Emperuman which is taken out from water tank once in every 40 years. Next scheduled for viewing this, is the year 2019. A Granite deity brought from Pazhaya Srivaram was replaced as Moolavar in this place. Holy river, Goddess of Education (Saraswathi), the realization of good sense are indications of Jupiter, that  signify above.

5) At the final stage of yaagam, Brahma offered his Vapaa (marrow from his own body) as Aahuthi (offering) and poured it in to the sacrificial fire when immediately arose the supreme jyothi housing Punya koti vimaanam (tower) with Lord Varadar uttchavar deity known as Dhivya Mangala Vigraham emerged at its centre from the womb of fire (Homa kundam). Brahma asked for the Boon from Emperuman to stay permanently in Sathya vratha kshethram to bless devotees forever.  Lord Brahma performed Aaraadhanam to Lord Varadhan in Krutha Yugam as per his directive. Yaagams, supreme sacrifices, vedic fire and boons denote the kaaragathvam of Jupiter. Swami Desikar paasuram implies this in Hasthigiri Mahaathmyam as below:

 6) Maharishi Mahasanthar started severe penance in forest to worship the beautiful, divine appearance of the Lord (dhivya mangala svarupam of Emperumanar). Indra sent Apsaras to distract the Rishi’s attention. Having failed in this attempt, he took in disguise of a Male Elephant started making love with female Elephants in front of Maharishi who was tempted in his mind by seeing this and wanted to be an Elephant. Because of Indras Mayajal, Mahasanthar become an Elephant called Gajendran. After wandering in forest for many years, this Elephant reached Godavari river. Realising its purvajanmam, under the advice from Mirukandu Rishi, Gajendran reached sathya vratha ksethram to pray Lord Varadhan by doing daily Aaradhana offering Lotus flowers to Emperuman with devotion. Thus one day when Gajendran was plucking Lotus flowers in the Pond, he was caught in foot by Crocodile and lost all hope of survival after fighting with crocodile for many years. Finally by surrendering to Lord Sriman NarayaNa, The Emperuman, Elephant cried aloud his divine name. Lord Varadan came to the resue of Gajendraazhvan and saved him by killing the crocodile. Gajendraazhvan worshipped Lord Varadhan in Trethayuga. Elephant and devotion signify Deva Guru.

 7) Deva Guru had to undergo sufferings by being born in earth due to some curse from Rishies on account of differences in views on sastras. Hence Bruhaspathi following the advice of sage Bharadwaj went on severe penance at Kanchi praying for the grace of Lord Varadhan. Brahma Devan took pity on the plight of Devas who lost their senses without the divine guidance of Bruhaspathi in Devaloka and prayed to Lord Varadharajan for mercy on Bruhaspathi.Accordingly Lord Devaraja gave dharshan to Bruhaspathi and returned him to his divine self-appearance (svarupam) and position in Devaloga. As per the directive of Lord Varadhan, Bruhaspathi performed Aaradhana to Him in Dwaparayuga at Kanchi.

8) Lord Varadhan sannidhi vimanam is “Punniya Koti Vimanam” as it destroys our sins and bestows punyam by mere sight of vimana. Hence in this temple on Vaikunda Ekadesi day, there is no Swarga Vaasal like in other Vishnu temples, as this kshethra itself would bestow moksha with a mere thought and sight of puniya koti vimana signifying with the saying that Jupiter’s aspect to any moon sign makes a lots more benefit. “(???? ??????? ???? ?????”), the good aspect of Jupiter in a horoscope will give crores of good deeds. Deva Guru prayed Lord Varadhan under Punniya Koti Vimanam in Dwapara yuga. It is believed that every year on Purattasi Sravanam night, Deva Guru visits Anantha saras pushkarni to do Aaradhanam to Lord varadarajar.-

9) Perundevi Thayar sannidhi vimanam is known as ‘kalyana vimanam’ which matches the significance of Jupiter who is the karaga for 7th house (kalathra sthanam) for ladies and  also Gurus transit to benefic houses in Gochara movement would  give strength  to individual horoscope for fixing marriage to the native. Malayala Nachiyar, daughter of king of  Cheran who had her love and devotion for Sri Varadhan in his Archa murthi merged  with  Lord in his sannidhi due to the divine blessing of perundevi Thayar. Sight of Kalyana vimanam would shower golden blessings of Guru.

10) Lord Varadhan avathara star is Hastham and moon in this star only direct 7th aspect falls on meena Rasi owned by Jupiter.Sri Ramanujar star is Thiruvathirai,moon in this star on its only 7thaspect falls on dhanusu Rasi owned by Jupiter and similarly for Swami Desikar star is Sravanam, moon standing in this star aspects Kataka Rasi where Jupiter is exalted (uchcham) This shows that Guruparampara started from this Emperuman/piratti-Sri Ramanujar-swami Desikar and go on like this to the present Acharyas. Varadarajar is the God referred to by Nammazhwar in his very first pasuram of Thiruvaimozhi  ‘Madhi Nalam Arulinan Avan'(Giver of wisdom) and in conformity with this saying, Nammazhwar appears in this temple without his usual ‘Gnana mudrai by keeping his hand on his chest. Acharyas and wisdom are gift of Jupiter.

11) Swami Desikar was approached by a Brahmin Brahmachari seeking financial support for his marriage.swamy Desikar took him to the sannidhi of divine mother Perumdevi Thayar  and sang the famous ‘sristhuthi”.Immediately the sky opened up and rained Gold coins.Swami Desikar asked Brahmachari to take away the Gold coins for his marriage.  Swamis divine grace to this poor Brahmin Brahmachari matching with blessings of Guru  who is called Dhanakaraka for wealth and  for Gold as his metal and also Guru denotes Brahmins by caste.

12) Thirumangai mannan was arrested for not paying taxes to chozha king as he spent all those money thus collected for Bhagavathas kainkaryam and also feeding vaishnavites. He prayed to Lord Varadarajar who came in his dream and showed the place of Treasure in vegavati river which was identified and given to the chozha king who realized the greatness of kaliyan and waived off the taxes due by giving back the treasure to him. Sri Thirumangai azhwar is posed in this temple at his sannidhi holding ‘NIDHI’ in his hand. Guru is the dhanakaraga who graced  him as Treasure/Nidhi is  his karagathavam.

13) The uniqueness of Lord sri Varadan in his Archa Murthi was that he had been the preceptor and guide of Sri Vaishnava Sampradhayam since he gave six words (tenets) through Thiru Kacchi nambigal advocating Prapatti by his divine answers to Sri Ramanujar. This six words contained the essence of our great philosophy that made Sri Ramanujar to teach Sri Bashyam to the world. The sixth word commandment from Sri Varadhan was the direction to Sri Ramanujar to surrender at the holy feet of Sri Peria Nambi seeking him as his Acharya. Hence Sri Ramanuja is posed in this temple with ‘vyakya mudrai’in the posture of instructing to denote this historical episode contrary to his normal posture in other temples with Anjali in worshipping manner.Lord Varadhan message through Nambi was given in ‘Thiru Kachi vaithan mandapam’. Thus Jupiter which signify the divine direction, philosophy, vedic sasthras,surrender to Acharya are well defined  above.

14) Poigai Azhwar, very first of muthal three Azhwars took the Avatar without Garbha vaasam ( not by Birth) in a Golden Lotus Pushkarni at Kanchi as an incarnation of Pancha janyam, the divine white Conch of Lord Sriman Narayana. Panchajanyam which shape and sound resembles that of Holy Pranavam symbolzing the essence of Vedas. Golden lotus, pranavam, sound and Vedas are connected with Deva Guru through the Avatar of muthal azhwar.

15) Both Sri Ramanujar and Swami Desikar had their Roots at Kanchi and stayed for long time in this Kshetra and dedicated their entire life to nurture Vishitadvaitha philosophy. Lord Varadhan was dearer to both and as  Araadhana murthi for sri Ramanujar while swami Desikar performed his prapatthi at the divine feet of Lord sri Varadharaajar. Sri Ramanujar undertook pilgrimage on foot to Dwaraka,Badrinath,Mathura ect besides he went on a Mission to Kashmiram to obtain a Grantham from Saradha peedam.similarly swami Desikar had travelled on visit to temples in Badri, Ayodhia, Kaasi, Salagram, Mathura, Avanti, Dwaraka . Long distance travels, Holy Mission and Pilgrimage trips are of Jupiter Karagathvam which signify in this context on above.

16) Vishitadvaitham is the only philosophy that logically explains the concept of Vedas and Upanishads Initiated by great Acharyas Sri Nathamuni, Sri Alavandar. Bagwath Sri Ramanuja propagated the doctrines to make the world realise in a logical and scientific manner the supremacy of this philosophy. Swami Desikar dedicated his life to the exposition and elaboration of this philosophy which was expounded by Sri Ramanuja and systematized the philosophy faithfully interpreting the ancient knowledge in the true sprit of metaphysics. Due to the divine grace of Jupiter who is identified with the idea of growth,expansiveness/ prosperity, was made possible by Acharyas.

17) Ikshvaku kula king kusethvagen who was childless for many years, following the advice from sage Sri Vedhaviyazar came to Kanchi and performed yaagam and Aaradhana to Lord Varadharaajar who was pleased with his devotion blessed him for parenthood to a child who later become a chakravarthi called Sri Vichvajith,rendering many kaingariams to  Kanchi Ksethram. Similarly Lord Vardhan came in dream to Swami Desikar and blessed him for a son with all goodness, later known as Sri Varadhacharia. Jupiter is the putra karagha who denotes above.

18) Ganga Devi due to some curse was waiting at Kanchi to have darshan of Lord Varadharaajar in Garuda Seva to get relieved of her curse. Following the foot step of their leader Ganga Devi, other divine Thirthams also assembled and had holy bath before witnessing the event of Ganga Devi getting the divine grace of Emperuman in Garuda sevai. This took place at a place which was named as ‘Gangai Konda Mandapam’ and the holy tank where all sacred rivers converged for the holy Turmeric Bath is called as ‘Manjal Kalavai’ at Kanchi. Holy Rivers, yellow Turmeric water, Divine grace are of Jupiter’s  karagathvam.

19) Bagwath Sri Ramanujar took sanyasam at Ananta saras Pushkarni and Lord Varadhan invested to him a Honorific Title ‘ Yethi Rajar ‘through Thiru Kacchi Nambigal  meaning king among sanyasis.Similarly Swamy Desikar was given a sammanam of ‘Thirucchinnam’under the divine order of Lord Varadhan due to Desikars efforts to establish Tamil Divya Prabhandham recitation in Kanchi by defeating the opponents. Sri Desikar composed his work ‘Thiruchinnamalai’  Honour, Title and sanyasam are of karagathvam of Deva Guru.

20) Adhi seshan is doing Araadhana to Lord Perarulalan in Kali yuga at Anantha saras pushkarni in temple where Bagwath Sri Ramanuja took sanyasam. As per the pasuram of Kanchi sthala, Sri Poygaiyazhvar in Mudal Thiruvandadi (first phrase), Adhi Seshan is the Paduka of Emperuman in  his verses ‘Ninraal Maravadiyam’ and hence Paduka as Acharya and its incarnation as Sri Ramanujar doing Aradhanam in Kali yuga in this temple are of importance for its connection to Bruhaspathi.

 Swami Desikar works In Nutshell –

  1. a) Swami Desikar described the beauty and puranam of Kanchi in a Kaviyam “Hamsa chandasam” depicting in imaginary mind as if a Hamsa bird as messenger passing through this kshetram to hand over a  message from Lord Rama to Sita piratti. Hamsa is the bird of Deva Guru.
  2. b) Kanchi called as ‘Golden city’ was the seat of Sri Vaishnava sambradhayam which witnessed expansiveness and growth in Ritual practices in the past few decades in line with karagathvam of Deva Guru taught us the practice to apply Srichooranam in “Golden yellow” described as Hiranya varnam as pirattis svarupam given in swami Desikars work which is the symbolic colour of Deva Guru with significance  attached to Sri Lakshmi – The Goddess of wealth.
  3. c) Swami Desikar kumarar Sri Varadacharya composed Thanian on Desikar imploring as ‘sriman venkata natharyah kavitharkika kesari’ corresponding to “Gaja Kesari yogam” bestowed by Sri Varadacharyas Disciple Brahma tantra swantantra composed thanian saying ‘Gnana Vairaghya Bushanam’ denoting the’ Gnanam and vairaghyam bestowed by Jupiter.

In Kundalini yoga, sakthi is awaken through Brahma Nadi under the guidance of Guru and similarly for attaining eternal peace – Moksha, once jeevathma sheds its earthly body known as sthula sariram, it has to go via Brahma Nadi for which Jupiter grace is required and this is possible only with the blessing of Acharya. Those who want to get the grace of Guru must visit Kanchipuram (Kanjeevaram) on Thursday/ Purattasi (during Mid-September/Mid-October every year) Sravanam day and surrender to their Acharyar for his divine blessings.

Vedic Astrology & Medicine

Vedic Astrology & Medicine

TRS Iyengar

WARNING: This article is presented in good intention just only for information purposes. Every reader should know to balance between this article and any specific ailments; one should not fail to consult his/her Medical practitioner or an highly experienced Astrologer, Gemologist before deciding on any matter related to this article. In those olden days an astrologer used to profess Medicine and the Ayurvedic & Siddha practitioners used to read the horoscope of their patients to find a remedial solution, just not only with medicine but also with Gem and Mineral therapy. Why, even today this is practiced in India widely; many Nadi Jothisha scripts are almost combined with Astrology, Gemology and Medicine! What they call these portions as Prediction of Each sign, then suggesting the Remedial measures as Shanti Gandam, then recommending Medicine to any specific illness or ailments from the Aushatha Gandam (Medicinal Cure).

Medical Astrology is that branch of Astrology dealing with Health. The 12 Rasis known as Signs of the Zodiac are linked to the Twelve Limbs of the body.  The   Ascendant rules the Head and the 12th House, the Feet.  Let us, at the first place see the houses of Zodiac Chart and its allocated parts of human body within the Astrological perspective: Lagna known as Ascendant – i.e. the First house : Control Head, Body heat mechanism & overall physique. The 2nd Table below shows each house and its significance and the connectivity to human organs. The Law of Correspondences of  Classical  Philosophy has another term ” The Doctrine of Signatures”. This doctrine states that objects – animate and inanimate – are governed by planets and Classical Astrology  has taken this concept beyond ” The Law of Cause and Effect ” and has   defined it as Archetypal or Psychological.

Reflections of the intrinsic  qualities  of the  planets can be seen in  people,  plants,  animals  & minerals. All that we see, touch, consume &  harvest has a correspondence. By knowing our own planetary signature, we can  consume those materials which  correspond  to our   planetary signature & thus a healthy balance can be maintained. for an example, if in anyone’s horoscope,  Jupiter is posited in Cancer and then the  powerful positional  as well as directional strength it holds. If the person is afflicted by any sort of disease, the escape route is the Jupiterian Way –  viz consuming  more  vegetables & fruits, as he rules fruits & vegetables. If the native do that, he will be implementing what the Great  Seers said long ago ( ” Naturopathic food is medicine and medicine is food ” )!

Since the Zodiac Signs represent  the Five Basic Elements known as Ether, Fire, Air, Earth & Water,  the ancient astrological savants  assigned   everything in  the Universe  to a planetary ruler, & considered all as the manifestation of the Elemental Five & their respective qualities – hot & dry, cold and dry, hot and humid , cold and humid. Jupiter rules “Kapha”  & the  Sun “Pitta’ ( the three humors of Ayurveda ). These elements were understood in  a physical & metaphysical sense, as per the principle “As Above, So Below”.  Many  body  constitutions  are  defined in Ayurveda. The    Phlegmatic ( predominance of Kapha), the Bilious ( preponderance of Pitta )  &  the Windy ( predominance of Vata ). There are 4 types of Body Constitution in Western Holistic Medicine – Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Choleric &Melancholic.   The Ayurvedic Therapy The Seven Planets (leaving aside the two shadow planets known as Rahu & Ketu, and of course, the newly found Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, which are not considered in this article) correspond to the 3 humors ( Doshas ) in Ayurveda In the Ayurvedic Model, the Seven Revolving Heavens are classified thus The seven planets correspond to the Seven Gross Tissue- elements, called Dhatus (Mineral composition & the planets influence or ruling part of human body mechanism. The table below illustrate the planet and its connectivity to the human body system.

Sun Pitta Bones The Bone System   
Moon Vata & Kapha  Blood The Circulatory System   
Mars Pitta Bone Marrow The Muscular System   
Mercury Pitta, Vata & Kapha Skin    The Veins
Jupiter Kapha Fat The Digestive System
Venus Vata & Kapha Seminal Energy The Reproductive System
Saturn Vata Veins The Excretory System

By analyzing a horoscope, an experienced astrologer can judge the badly placed planet & the corresponding Dhatu which has caused the problem and can prescribe Ayurvedic remedial measures.

House Connected Organ Signifying 
Ascendant /  Lagna/     1st House Head Soul, Mind & Thoughts
2nd House Face Right Eye sight, Family & Cash flow, Vocabulary 
3rd House Throat Brothers
4th House Heart Mother, Vehicles, Education & comforts
5th House Lungs, Abdominal Children, earlier birth
6th House Stomach Disease, ailments, distant cousins
7th House Private Generative organs Marriage, opposite sex, life partner
8th House Upper thigh Longevity
9th House Thigh Luck, benefits, gains
10th House Knee Father/Husband, profession, job etc.
11th House Calf Benefits, gain, second marriage etc.
12th House Feet Left eye sight, Sleep, Moksha, 

If the 6th house is afflicted, there can be digestive tract disorders. Natural malefic in the 6th house, may create hyperacidity and gas trouble.  Affliction either to the 7th house means disorders of  the digestive tract, hyperacidity& gas trouble .The  same  holds  good  for  the  6th house. If  the 6th house or the 7th house is  afflicted, one should be  very careful about the body’s acidity level. The body’s PH  value should be kept   at 7. Anything less than 7 is dangerous. The 80% alkaline nature  of  the body should be kept up & acidity  should  not be above 20%. The best foods  to  be taken are Vedic Foods, which  are low acidity, low cholesterol diet. The Acidity- Alkalinity  ratio should be kept  at 80% -20%. That ratio can be maintained if you consume 100 grams fruits and 300 grams vegetables  daily and avoid  non-natural food.  Natural foods are alkaline & non-vegetarian basically acidic. From experience, it can be discerned that  not only  malefic planets bring in problems  from  enemies, but also problems to the stomach.

If the 12th house is afflicted by malefic planets, there can be affliction to the feet. We have seen  many  a patient suffering from  12th house affliction and which manifests as problems on the feet. Similarly, 4th house affliction means trouble to the Heart. There are some astrologers who take this from the Horoscope of the Cosmic Man, (Kaala Purusha) that is from His Ascendant Aries. This method also yields results but from the experience, we follow the dictum of  Natal Astrology that it is the Ascendant  of the  native which is the head &  the Descendant the stomach region. I know many an Astrologer who follow this from Aries Ascendant (Lagna) &  if a malefic is posited in Virgo, in the  6 H ofKalapurusha (Cosmic Man), he  predicts stomach problems for the native. Or if a malefic planet is positioned ed in Taurus, he predicts wounds on the face for the native. Affliction to any house indicates affliction to the corresponding part of the body. North Node or any other malefic in the Sixth is indicative of stomach trouble & ulceration. Fourth house affliction means that the heart is afflicted and first house affliction means that the head is afflicted. The planets correspond to the different systems of Man thus from experience, Vedic Medical Astrology is found to be very accurate.

Gem Therapy In Astrology

How can therapeutic gems can cure your ailments? Can this be true? Just let us look at the Modern Science. Physicists tell us that all matter is energy in physical form. All the particles, be it human or otherwise, it is Crystal. Gemstones are certainly no exception. Formed over eons, often at high pressure of the Earth’s rotation, the Earth’s gemstones embody intense concentrations of energy. The energetic and physical properties of gemstones are already employed in many aspects of today’s technology. The ability of crystals to conduct and transform energy is no longer a foreign idea to us. For example, every television, quartz clock, mobile phone, and computers, laptops etc.  runs smoothly thanks to Quartz crystals. Today the energetic properties of gems are also being used to improve people’s health at a fundamental level.

Efforts to use gems for healing have a long history. In India as well as in many other places, people have sought to uncover the abilities that lay hidden within the intensely compressed crystalline structures of gemstones – particularly the ability to heal. Over the centuries, our attempts have met with varying degrees of success and failure. Yet, when using gems for health, something was always missing – for, until recently, we have been unable to discover a systematic way to unlock the full therapeutic powers of gems and to achieve consistent, long-lasting results. But what they found to be more energetic ones are the real nine Gems named, Ruby, Pearl, Coral, Emerald, Diamond, Blue sapphire, Zircon and Cat’s eye. In the Indian and Hindu system of Astrology, though they found many other semi precious stones, they count only these nine Gem stone as Medicinal and Cosmetic radiation value.

When one finds there is a total failure in this therapy, then he/she should check for the genuineness of the stone that is used.  The most essential to the success of any form of medicine is the nature of its therapeutic tools. To be most effective and reliable, medicine must be pure and high in quality. The purity and quality requirements of the gems  used for healing parallel those of any other form of medicine. Meeting these strict requirements can make or break a gem’s therapeutic worth. For gemstone energy medicine to be effective and consistent, the use of only therapeutic-quality gemstones is required. To find out the purity of any Gem, you just can walk into any Gemologist or Gemology Laboratory for a Gem Test.

It is found from the past experience,  that a gem’s shape profoundly affects the way it can express its energy – and thus its ability to deliver its healing properties. The ideal shape for a therapeutic gem is the sphere. The spherical shape unleashes a gem’s potential to reach and heal the deepest energetic aspects of our being, where the root causes of disease and distress lie. Therapeutic gemstone spheres radiate an incomparable energy that can affect all our dimensions, physical and subtle, and hence heal and transform our entire being. This is what the Vedic Astrology relate to.

With  these two concepts – the selection of only the highest quality gems and the use of gems cut into the proper shape – represent a simple, yet seismic, shift in the understanding of how gems can work therapeutically. Proper selection, shaping, color and use of gemstones can transform them into therapeutic power tools. The potent healing energy of therapeutic gems can deeply heal and nourish every aspect of the human form.

Luckily, enjoying the health benefits of gemstone spheres is exceptionally easy and straightforward. Albeit costly. Based on this information, many therapy protocols using gem spheres have been developed. However, powerful benefits can be obtained simply by wearing therapeutic gems around the neck. Wearing a therapeutic gemstone necklace allows the gems’ healing energy to penetrate the deepest levels of the wearer’s physical and energetic dimensions. There, the gems’ energy goes to work dissolving energetic blockages and producing beneficial changes in the body, mind, and emotions.

The experiences of many  persons have proved that the information presented here in are quiet agreeable in the healing Gemology therapy.. These experiences of healing provide our first glimpses of what becomes possible when we put this new form of energy medicine into practice. These Gem stones do work, giving an ample scope for alternate medicine. But one should be very cautious and careful in choosing the right stone and Gem.

The following stones are suggested in Astrology and also prescribed in Ayurveda for specific disorders; but how far has achieved permanent cure is a question to ponder! However, if predicted earlier and as a preventive step, if one wears the recommended gem, then certainly the results are encouraging. Say, instead of sufferings for 100%, it should reduce to fifty percent or even less.

RUBY is recommended for : Rheumatism, acute chest pain, Rib & Lungs weaknesses.

Pearl is suggested for Insomnia, Migraine, and severe headache.

Coral is recommended for Blood Anemia, Liver problems, Jaundice and for women who suffer with stomach pains during their menstrual course period and impotency in both genders.

Emerald is recommended for : Cancer, Dysentery, Jaundice, Abdominal irregularities, Chest pain & nail distortions.

Yellow sapphire  Known as Guru (Pushparagam or Pushkaraj) is suggested for impotence, cholera and gas trouble and stomach pains.

Diamond is recommended for Diabetes and heart problems and Pneumonia.

Blue sapphire is recommended for those who suffer from Neurological problems, Rheumatism, Arthritis,  Gastric Ulcer, Tuberculosis, and bowel system defects.

Zircon (Gomethakam or Gometak) is suggested for skin ailments and

Cat’s Eye  (known as Vaidoorya or Vaiduryam) is recommended for blood purifications.

On what basis a gem stone is recommended? How the size and color is considered? What if one no longer needs the specified stone?


Oh, it all depend upon your astrologer’s expertise and experience! The most specific method is based on the prescription by a well qualified Astrologer. It is the system and reading of a native’s horoscope that is taken into account, with various astrological factors before prescribing the gemstone. This recommended system  leaves almost nothing to chance and tries to factor in all aspects before prescription. The steps involved in this system are discussed below, but it should be kept in mind that a qualified Astrologer alone is capable and a prerequisite to make use of this gem stone therapy.


First, The Ascendant known as Lagna is studied and looked into and then the Lord of Ascendant/Lagna is checked for its strength, weakness and auspiciousness in the Rasi (Moon sign)  and Navamsa chart.


Then the the current running & ruling Mahadasha period (Major Planetary ruling Period) is checked. Sometimes the ruling planet of antardasha (sub-division period) is also factored in.


Thirdly, the Moon sign is checked and the lord of Moon sign’s placement is checked for its strength and weaknesses.


Then the birth star known as Janma Nakshatra is checked including the lord and its dispositor for auspiciousness.


Then,  all the nine planets are examined in Moon sign Rasi chart and checked for its strength and weaknesses, if any.


Next the strength and weaknesses of each sign with its owenership, Kendra Bhala, Trikona Bhala and sthana Bhala are judged; this is to consider various aspects of the native’s immediate threat or benefit.



Simultaneously, the Navamsa chart has to be studied for all the factors as it will pinpoint many other  facts which are overlooked in the Main Rasi Chart.



Lastly, the chalit chart should also be examined to verify if a planet changes its position or motion  house-wise. If any planets move, retrograde, exaltation or debilitation does vary because of the cusp changes, then it should also be considered before recommending any gem stone.



If the above factors are properly judged and used by a well qualified Astrologer, surely it will give a clear indications about the type of gemstone, size and mode (whether a pendant type or a ring) to be prescribed for a native. Normally the stones are prescribed for strengthening the planets which results in beneficial effects. Thus, in general a gem stone is suggested where a planet’s positioning is weaker or, when the Ruling Mahadasa period warrants. The native who remain in touch with their astrologers as a counselor, derive more benefits, as by then your Family Astrologer remembers everything that is plus and minus in your birth chart known as Janma Kundali. In such cases, the astrologer is able to recommend a specific gemstones for a particular period only to derive the maximum benefits of it.



Once the ill effect period is over, or when no longer the recommended Gem stone is needed, it is to be removed and never to be used by another person. When the stipulated period is over, and the need arises for a change in a  gemstone then it is recommended by the counseling Astrologer for a further period. This dynamic way of prescription is actually very beneficial and is gaining momentum in modern times. Logically, some of the gemstones interfere with the cosmic effects of other gems also and thus are in conflict. Under such circumstances, this dynamic prescription of gemstones is very useful as the astrologer can derive benefits for the native from various gemstones at different points of time, without any negative effect of the conflict of gems. Here too, one has to be a regular customer/client of a particular Astrologer, who can guide you throughout your life, as is your family doctor!



And most importantly, one should be very careful in choosing the stone, as normally a used gem stone might not be giving the full effect as that of a new one. Also, once the period of its effectiveness is not felt, then too you should remove it, as your Astrologer will guide you next. Here too, all the gem stones that are once used, has no resale value at all, irrespective of its cost and weight- age!

In some complicated conditions of a native’s horoscope and if multiple remedy is to be found for some specific weak planetary alignments, there are many other remedies and combinations are listed even for common cold, allergy One has to study the horoscope in detail, find out the weaker planet and its current influence on the native and then to see the running Dasa Period for current, before recommending any remedy. Quite apart from the recommended stone therapy, the olden days people used to take remedial treatments with Basmams (the ashes of specific stone – such Thangabasmam as Gold metal ash, Chandiya Basmam for Silver ash etc).  Only an experienced Astrologer & Gem therapist can guide you to proper Gem or an Experienced Astrologer with Ayurvedic knowledge too can get you some solutions for aforesaid ailments. The nava ratnam known as Nine precious Gems in itself is very poisonous; however, if the same is utilized in a methodical way as listed in the Vedic scripts, it helps one to come out of the ill effects of any malefic placement of planets in one’s horoscope. But to find an Astrologer who also has the knowledge in the Vedic Medicine proposition is become like some what find a needle in the hay stack!

Horoscope Chart

The following chart shows the divisions and allocations in degrees for each division; The first column that beginning with “0” Degree is known as Aries and the proceed with 30 degrees for each sign in Clockwise position. The Hindu Astrology name for each sign given in Blue and degree allocations marked in Red. Now you can check your birth chart known as Horoscope or Jathakam (Jadakam – Jadagam) and your Rasi known as Moon Sign is where the Moon or Chandran is placed. In each house or division of 30 degrees, the western name of the sign, Hindu Astrology based Sanskrit name, house number and the total degree it holds are given one by one in each line. The second chart shows the representing the Nakshatram for each sign. The third chart just simply the Navamsa sign of each house or rasi.

The above two chart give you a clear picture as to star-wise as well as Degree-wise placement of constellations in each house. These twelve houses are known as Rasi.

Whether it is north Indian style or South Indian style of horoscope chart, normally both carry two chart namely Lagna Rasi Chakram ( Lagna Kundali) and Navamsa Chakram (Navamsa Kundali). Though the system and divisions in both style are the same, the only difference being South Indian Horoscope Chart shown in Clock-wise movements, wherein North Indian Horoscope charts are shown in Anti Clock-wise.

Though the Navamsa Kundali known as Navamsa chakram is similar to the main horoscope chart, the planetary alignments are positioned according to the placement of planets in the original main chart. This is called as 9 divisions of nakshatra rasi to make Navamsa Kundali.

The above chart shows 01 as Ascendant. But practically, whichever the sign is falling into ascendant that will be placed at the top (in place of 01 – here the 01 or the Ascendant is not necessarily “Aries” but can be any other Lagna). Then it is counted from there on, in anti-clock wise till the 12th sign. Most important to note here is, that which ever the Lagna a person is born under, placed on the top.


Now for the houses and the moon sign along with Ruler of the houses, the following chart is given in detail for a simple study. One can easily recognize the zodiac signs and its influence with each body part and plus and minus points of its actual placement at the time of birth. In the Natal chart erected for a person, the planetary alignments are to be taken into account, while giving any judgment for the same. However, the Running Dasa Bukti, and its sub, sub-sub divisions are to be considered; also, the transition of any planet at a given time is to be considered for predictions. The following Rasi Chakram Chart illustrate the simple notations on the same.
