Charms Talismans and Spells: Influence of Black Magic and Evil Eye, Chapter V, Part - 1

Chapter No. 5

Dr. Shanker Adawal

It will now be necessary to make a short study of magic, if we desire any thing like a reasonable explanation as to the power behind and manifesting through charms and kindred objects. It may be that the world has raised superior to such superstitions but before taking it for granted that superstition and magic are the same thing and that the theories of the old seers are not suited for the present age but it could be said that the magic of yesterday may be the science of tomorrow. Pushpak viman, Agni ban, Brahma astra were a magical or spiritual power but today science has proved them in the shape of cruise missiles or ballistic missiles and aeroplanes.

It will thus be seen that magic is a high system and state of knowledge in both philosophy and science. At an early period it was divided into four classes. These were: first-natural magic, second-white magic, third-black magic and the fourth-divine magic. We need only touch that class to which our subject belongs, and that is black magic (Abhichara or nazar) or influence of evil eye where we are brought into connection with the world of unseen powers through artificial or natural agents.

Indian astrology also talks of Black Magic. Indications of Black magic can be checked in the horoscope with the following indications:-

1. Bandhakesh associated with 6th house or lord.

2. 6th lord is in 1st, 7th or 12th house and Mars occupies or aspects ascendant.

3. Ketu is in 1st, 4th or 10th house and Mars aspects ascendant.

Now after checking these combinations one must suggest some remedies in the form of some spell, charms or talismans. Now here we are giving some of them for the use of our readers.

Planets and Days

It has been observed that a few persons fall ill or face troubles on a specific day due to some or other reasons. It is believed that it is influence of some evil eye and it is our belief that following general remedies will ward off such evils. Of course, if you perform them in the normal ways then the evils can be averted or minimized. Then why you wait for eventuality to take place? So, here we provide some effective general readings and remedial measures connected with various planes for days and nights of week for the candid use of readers and for the practitioners.

1. Saturday: - If one feels trouble and falls ill on Saturday, the effects are of malefic Saturn. Effects will be felt for eight days. One will feel troubled, the whole body will be heavy, feel thirsty and one will sleep peaceful. If the boy or child falls ill he will weep day and night will not take milk which indicates that his/her mother had fed with milk before another lady and the child is the victim of evil eye and one has to suffer for seven day. In such case 1 ¼ seer of black urad, 1.25 yards black cloth and small quantity of halwa (sweet meat) be donated and talisman of Saturn for cure from Evil eye should be worn on the neck.
