On Religious Personalities

Of all planets, Saturn, Jupiter and Ketu play the vital role for religious tendency. Mental inclination is achieved from third house in a Janam Kundali. Traditional astrology is of the view that position of more than four planets in fourth house in a horoscope may violate the domestic peace and leads him/her to bent his/her mind towards occultism. Analysis was made among the maximum of horoscopes of varieties and concluded that there is certain stage while someone plungs his/her life towards religion. Say, for example, about Dacoit Ratnakara who during the Ramayana era became Maharshi Valmiki who didn’t hesitate to commit murder, cheating and decoity before coming to religious awareness.

Not only the Indian school of astrology, but also western thinkers were of the view that ninth house indicates how much achievement may become successful from the ninth house planetary position, location of its lord and cuspal point of view. Even if the lagnapati is posited in ninth house and aspected by any planet which is having tendency towards religion must have to become a successful monk or saint. Nature of saint may vary according to norms of the planets concerned. Question may arise when the native may leave his/her house for plunging his/her life towards search of pursuit of religion? To answer this, it may be pointed out that main Daa, sub period, and minor interim period of Vimsottri Dasa is to be verified of 9th house planet. Naisrgik benefic planet Jupiter is given prima facie inclination for pursuit of Religion Next comes 9th house lord or the planet posited in the house concerned. Naisargik malefic planet Saturn plays a vital role to maintain saint life. Ketu unlike Saturn and Jupiter is spiritual planet. Assessment of 1st, 5th and 9th houses are to be considered for religious conception. For clear conception of spiritualism, notable Rasi charts are appended below. Following is the horoscope of Parampurusha Sri Sri Ramakrishna whose birth ascendant and sign falls in Aquarius along with Mercury and Sun. Lord of Ascendant and 12th house, Saturn was posited in Exaltation in 9th house (House of religion) whereas Jupiter, lord of 2nd and 11th was posited in 5th house in Gemini. Even Venus, lord of 4th and 9th was exalted in 2nd house (Pisces). On the other hand Mars, lord of 3rd and 10th was posited in 112th house  in Capricorn in exaltation.

This the horoscope of Sri Sri Mohananda Brahmachari, disciple of Balananda Brahmachari who was born on 17.12.1904, Saturday at 7.00 A.M. whose sign falls in Pisces (constellation) Revati and Ascendant in Sagittarius with 9th lord Sun and 7th and 10th lord Mercury. Location of Dragon’s head is in Leo 9th House, whereas Jupiter was posited in Pisces with Moon which causes Jiva Yoga. Jupiter is Vargottama.


To conclude the topic, I like to cite important facts relevant to religion. While compiling the horoscopes of eminent saints, I have noted that if they born in following months and sign/Ascendant respectively Vaisakha, Jyestha, Bhadra, Kartika, Magha and Falguna in Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, Libra and Sagittarius.
