PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF INDIAN ASTROLOGY
One of the many mysteries of Indian Astrology is that it does not have any good or evil effects but merely gives us prior information about the events that will occur. Therefore, the chief objective and usefulness of Astrology is to make prior presumptions of the incidents by studying the nature and qualities of the planets. In this way, we can be alert well in advance and can even transform our sorrow into joy. People, who believe that things which are bound to happen will certainly happen and cannot be changed, generally have no belief in Astrology. But there is no doubt that the prior knowledge of the favourability and unfavourability of the planets alerts a man to look for remedial methods. It can even make him alert to such an extent so that he takes such precautionary methods which will minimise or even nullify their effects. People who believe in destiny, have classified the Karma (action) in two parts (1) PRARABDHA, 2) ANARABDHA Prarabdha means those actions, which were committed in the previous life and the results of which one faces in the present life. Anarabdha means those actions, which are committed in the present life, or are about to be committed and the results will be faced in the next birth. It is impossible to do Karmas without aims or objectives. The theory of Bhagyawada (Fatalism) is that one should do such Karmas, which give good results in the present and the next birth. People who do not believe in ‘PUNARJANMA’ (Reincarnation), work hard and do virtuous actions, but still remain poor and unhappy. On the other hand, there are people who do little work but still manage to acquire and accumulate wealth and enjoy life to the full extent. And again there are rich people who face the wrath of the nature and become poor. What are the reasons for that? Do the people, who don’t believe in destiny, have any explanations? The Sun and the Moon are considered as the two principle planets, in Indian Astrology. The Sun is considered to be a ‘PURUSHA’ (Masculine) and the Moon is considered to be a ‘STREE’ or ‘PRAKRITI’ (Feminine). The planets, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn have been said to be the five elements. The Astrological cycle moves around with the help of Purusha, Prakriti and all the five elements, altogether.
SUPERIORITY OF INDIAN ASTROLOGY
Today, almost all the newspapers and magazines publish daily predictions on the basis of date of birth and Sun signs (Zodiac sign); the western Astrology considers the Sun as the principal planet, whereas in Indian astrology, Moon has been given that honour. Due to this contradiction in the two systems, people get confused. In Indian Astrology, both the Sun and the Moon have been given prominence.
The factor affecting the Atma (Soul) is the Sun and the factor affecting the ‘Mana’ (Mind) is the Moon. It implies that our body remains active as long as the symbol of Surya (Sun) that is Atma in our body exists. Without it, our body has no meaning. For the accomplishment of any work, we need a healthy body. So it is obvious that the Sun is the most important. On the other hand, Moon is a factor affecting the mind (Mana). Indian philosophy considers that Mind is the principle factor that affects our feelings like joy and sorrow, wealth and poverty, and rise and fall etc. According to Shankaracharya
MUN EVA MANUSHYAANAAM KAARANAM BANDH MOKSHAYOH
The great Poet Kalidas has said that
SARVASVE DVAYA SUMATI KUMATI SAMPADAAPATTI HETUH|
Kabir has said AKATHA KATHAA MUN KI BADEE TAA JUG KAAL NA KHAAYA All these statements stress upon the greatness of the mind.
Our body can be compared with a chariot, our mind–the charioteer, and our sense organs as the horses of the chariot.
Just as a charioteer controls the horses pulling the chariot, in the same way, our mind controls the body and senses and is not controlled by Atma (soul). The importance of mind is, thus,
obvious. Similarly the Moon, which has been compared to the mind, causes tides in the ocean. It is only because of the Moon’s motion that we know when it would be a high tide or a low. Thus it is adequately proved that the zodiac signs based on the Chandra (Moon) and the calculations of Dasha (position of planets) and the calculations of Rashiphala (prediction made on the basis of zodiac signs) is relatively more subtle and near perfection. mainly from urday.com & other Astrological sites
