Maha-Mrityunjaya Chant?

The deity one worships is also known, among other matters of life, from the Birth Chart. A look at the birth chart would indicate the position of Lagna Lord, Jupiter, 5th Lord and 9th Lord. All these factors combined with aspect of the Lagna Lord, 5th Lord and 9th Lord and by these planets on each other does help in knowing the spiritual- cum- religious bent of mind of the native. Further, persons born with Jupiter in 5th house or 9th house automatically get to the worship of Lord Shiva in one form or the other. Some say that Jupiter in Lagna also gives the same bent of mind and the natives get the institutive powers. Without multiplying the astrological principles, the delineation and analysis of the Mantra of Lord Shiva would be helpful for all to know the inbuilt strength in the Mantra and how it is useful in every walk of life. 

2. Recitation of Mantra has come to us from ancient times and the power of a Mantra as laid down in Vedas, Tantra Shastras and other scriptures is well known. Rather, it would be apt to say that taking refuge in Mantras has come to stay as a way of life. Mantra be small or it may be a big and the smallest. The smallest and single but very powerful word is ‘Aum’, and small mantra can be ‘Om Nama Shivaye’, Little lengthy Mantra can be Maha Mritunjaya Mantra or Gayatri Mantra and still we have more lengthy mantras of Lord Ganesha and other divine forces.

3. Mantras have been recognized as one of the efficacious means to invoke the blessing of a specifics deity and the results achieved have to be with the devotion of the native concerned (Sadhaka’s devotion) and I would like to say that if a Mantra is recited without expecting any reward, the result would be more beneficial and automatic.

4. Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra can overcome untimely death- rather it can help the native to come out of the jaws of death and also to get rid of death- like troubles. In addition, recitation of this Mantra can help the native to get all things including getting children, prosperity in business or profession, in getting happy married life, getting union of the separated couples if they show the intention for re- union, victory over enemies, getting favorable judgments in litigation and all matters troubling the native from womb to tomb.

5. It has been seen that some people, short of enlightenment, question the validity of this Mantra but in my opinion they have not honestly tried this Mantra with the needed devotion or they have not come in contact with genuine persons who could give guidance. Mantras are not more letters or group of letter but they have the divine force in their vibrations when recited. Lord Shiva himself said in ‘Chandi Vidhana’. 

This means “He is the meanest of men who states that (the idol of) Chandi (a synonym of Sakthi or Parvathi, Lord Siva’s consort) is simply made of mind, Rudra Yamala is simply a book , and Mantras are simply a conglomeration of letter or characters.”

6. Here it is considered apt to refer to an episode in Shiva Puran in the context of Lord Shiva’s Mantra. Sage Dadhicha was struck by king Kshuva by his thunderbold. The broken limbs were joined by Sukra on invocation by the sage and having performed penance by reciting Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, the sage got three booms, immunity from death and absence of distress.

7. On the basis of material published in various books aaabout this Mantra, it is stated that Mahamrityunjaya Mantra consisting of 62 syllables was given to Sukra by Lord Shiva. This Mntra is as under:

Om Haum Om Jum Om Sah Om Bhooh Om Bhuvah Om Svah,
Om Trayambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam,
Urvaarukamiva Bandhanaan Mrityor Mukshee ya Maamritat,
Om Svah Om Bhuvah Om Bhooh Om Sah Om Jum Om Haum Om.

8. Maha Mritunjaya Mantra from Yajur Veda consist of 33 syllables and this Mantra as obtained from Yajur Veda in the following from is popularly recited by devotes of Lord Shiva and others:

Om Trayambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam,
Urvaarukamiva Bandhanaan Mrityor Mukshee ya Maamritat.

9. In certain old texts including Prasara Hora, recitation of Mantra had been recommended for overcoming the bad and malefic effects of planets in their period i.e. Dasa. The effect of each malefic and even benefic would depend on the horoscope. Thus there is need to see the totality of the horoscope and its malefic content on account of signs, planets, strength of planets, how planets improve their position in divisional charts specially in Nnvamsa and Dasamasa.

10. The important point which need consideration is as to when one should commence recitation of Mritunjaya Mantra. It will be effective if one chooses to commence recitation on the day of one’s birth star or the 10th star or the 19th star. Regarding as to how many times, Mantra need to be recited, there is difference of opinion. Deva Karalam in his Chandra Kala Nadi has suggested recitation of this mantra one crore (ten million times) recitation of this Mantra to get rid of killer diseases and also overcome the danger of untimely death. Other have suggestion recitation of one Lakh, one lakh twenty five thousands and the minimum suggestion is to recite this Mantra 108 (one hundred eight) times. However, in view of modern times and less time available with the native, one can start recitation of Mantra 11 times, 21 times, 51 times, and so on though every person can spare time if he has the intention to do.

11. The place for recitation of Mantra is equally important. Preferably the Mantra should be done in a temple particularly dedicated to Lord Shiva. In the alternative, the place to be selected should be a clean spot or holy premises and the place to place so selected is called ‘Divya Desa’. Further, the place should be pure with calm surroundings. The Mantra of Lord Shiva recited before ‘Shivalinga’ or other image of Lord Shiva can give the results in a short span of time.

12. The native should start recitation of this Mantra after prayer to Lord Ganesha- the remover of all obstacles so that no obstacle is faced while starting and during the course of recitation of this Mantra.

13. The timings for recitation of this Mantra should be regularly and not haphazard manner though in the modern times native has to be permitted to recite this Mantra any time any where even shale in office during his spare time. What is needed is the devotion of the native in reciting this Mantra.

14. Normally, Brahama Mahurta i.e. at about 4.00 A.M. is considered beneficial for the recitation of this Mantra. Then at the time of Sun- rise when the native should be free after morning ablutions. The native should not sit on the plain floor as the vibrations produced from the Mantra shall be lost. However, the Mantra can be recited while walking or when the native is having some free time and free mind even while in office. In other words, the native becomes devoted and he can constantly go on reciting this Mantra to be termed as ‘Ajay Japa’.

15. The native should, before starting the Mantra, should lit ghee-lamp (Diya) to the deity and invoke Lord Shiva through this Mantra. The Lord- conquer of death, has three eyes i.e. the Sun, the Moon and the Fire.

16. The number of recitation of the Mantra should be uniform and should not be different on different days. One can start even with number 11 or so and this minimum should be done daily to the extent possible. Then the number of recitation can be increased. The native should lead a strict disciplined life in all manners during the period of recitation as per scheduled programme for this Mantra.

17. Sages have explained the inherent meaning of this auspicious Mantra and some meanings of the words of this Mantra are as under:

i) ‘Tryambakam’ denotes one under whose reign exist three mothers Creators of the Universe i.e. Ichcha Sakti, Kriya Sakti and Gnama Sakti.

ii) ‘Aum’ consisting of three syllables are also three eyes of Lord Shiva.

iii) ‘Sugandhim’ - lord instills auspiciousness everwhere.

iv) ‘Puahti Vardhanam- Lord endowed with the power of increasing ‘Pushti’- strength and potency. It also means Lakshmi.

v) ‘Yajaamahe’ means that the devotee surrenders himself to the Lord ‘Yagya’ is a sacrifice offered to the relevant deity with a specific vow.

vi) ‘Mukshee - ya’ - Ma Amritaat- With recitation of this Mantra, the native shall establish a relationship with the Lord and if once with the Lord, the relationship may not be broken.

18. Mantra of Lord Shiva is also connected with energies of the Lord- direction- wise:

East -   Energy following from East is called Ambika (Trayamabakam Yajaamahe)
South - Energy following from South is called VAAMA (Sugandhim Pushthivardhanam)
West -  Energy following from West is called Lord Mahadeva (Urvaarukmiva Bandhanan)
North - Energy following from North is called Draupadi of Lord Sanjeevaneesa. (Muksheeya Maamaritat).

19. As is known, the Mantra is in two lines. The first line introduces Lord Shiva along with Gauri placed in the right leg of the native. The 2nd line introduces Lord Vyapinesa (Shiva) located in the kept leg of the native. The two lines combined in the entire Mantra denote Lord Shiva as Sarvaakhyesa in the company of his energy called ‘Anaakhya’ spread all-over the body.

20. Mahamritunjaya Mantra is the most auspicious Mantra as per Vedas. Daily recitation of this Mantra alone is sufficient to ward off all evils and curses and has the divine strength to save the native from all difficulities and hurdles of life. The devoted recitation of this Mantra bestows health, wealth and power and also saves the native from ‘akal mrityu’ or untimely death. This mantra is also known as Amrit Sanjivani Nidhya Mantra. For attaining ‘Vidya’ (education), and also for fulfillment of other desires, recite the Mantra while pouring sweetened milk on Shiva Lagna.

21. If you want to recite Mantra, of Lord Shiva or to do any other remedy via Mantra, it is suggested that in Hindu Shastras, remedy should be carried out for a minimum of 40 days and maximum for 43 days continuously. Recitation should be carried preferably between sunrise and sunset and should be started on an auspicious day. Recitation should be done by others though in the case of a sick person, recitation may be done by others.

22. I shall be obliged if the readers may throw more light on the meaning and characteristics of the Mantra of Lord Shiva. The Mantra had been accepted as universal panacea for all diseases and to over- come all obstacles in life.

Horoscope of Son can Predict about Father's Past and Future!

father and son lol GIF by SherchleForm the birth chart of son, all matters relating to his father, can be looked on an examination and analysis of the following.

1)      IX House.
2)      Lord of the IX House
3)      Sun, and how placed in the birth chart of Son.
4)      Jupiter

In South India, father is looked from the Xth House but in most of books, Xth house refer to the determination of one's rank, authority, profession, business/ social status and also stand for authority (command). Since Father can command his son, hence, it can be stated that the Xth house is also to be looked for father.

Apart form wealth/ bhagya, IXth house stand for father p receptor. Hence, all things relating to father are to be looked from the Ixth house of the birth chart of the son apart from the position of Jupiter and the Sun.

There are various well laid down principles for determining the health, wealth and longevity of the father from the ninth house of the son. Birth chart has preferably to be of the eldest son or daughter, if any.

Some of the combinations are discussed below.

INDIGENT/ POOR FATHER:- 9th lord debilitated while the 2nd/4th from the 9th is occupied by Mars. (Mars in the 10 or 12th from Ascendant will not allow inheritance).

LONG-LIVED FATHER- 9th Lord in deep exaltation, Venus in Kendra and Jupiter is in 9th form Navamsha Ascendant.

WEALTH AND FAMOUS/FATHER- Lord of 9th in the 10th while 10th lord being aspected by a benefic.

SON: when devoted to father. Sun in deep exaltation and 9th Lord is the 11th or Sun in a trine from the Ascendant and 9th lord in 7th conjunction with or aspect to Jupiter

ENMITY WITH FATHER- Death of father before birth of the native:

a)      Sun in 6th/ 8th/ 12th as the 8th Lord is in 9th, 12th Lord in the Ascendant and 6th Lord in 5th.
b)      Death of father within 1 year of birth of the native: Sun be in 8th and its, lord be in 9th.
c)      Death of father during 3rd/ 16th year of the native- Lordof 12th in the 9th while 9th lord is in debilitated Navamsha.
d)      Death of father in 2nd or 12 year of the native:- Ascendant lord in 8th Lord with Sun.
e)      Death of father in 16th/18th year of the native: Rahu in 8th from 9th (4th from Ascendant) as the Sun is in 9th from 9th (5th from Ascendant).
f)        Death of father in the 7th or 19th year of the native:- Saturn in the 9th from the Moon and the Sun with Rahu.
g)      Death of father in the 44th year of the native:- 9th lord in 12th or the 12th lord in 9th.
h)      Death of father in 35th/41st year of the native:- Ascendant lord in 8th as the Moon is in the Sun's Navamsha.
i)        Death of father in 50th year of the native:- Sun being the lord of the 9th is conjunct with Mars and Saturn.

Without multiplying combinations, it would be better to refer to the following two actual horoscopes and seek your guidance:

The native is son No. 2 of the father. Father expired on 16.08.1988 when the position of planets on that day was as under:

DOB:- 10.11.1959, TOB 9.30 P.M
BAL. JUP. DASHA Y-2, M-04, D-02

The date of father death, 9th house had Rahu and its lord happened to be in 7th house i.e. sing of Jupiter and in turn Ketu had 5th aspect on the 7th house. No other malefic aspect on Sun and Jupiter.

DOB- 4/5-5-1983 POB MUSKAR (PB)
TOB- 12:00 A.M.

Itseld is in the frip of Rahu and Ketu casuing Kala 'Sarap-yoga'. Ninth lord Jupiter is in 5th with Ketu having 4th aspect of Mars with Venus and Moon. Sun and Mercury in the 3rd House are causing Budh-aditya yoga but could not save his father who died on 10th October, 1990 when the position of planets was as under:

From the transit of planet, it is found that the 9th Lord of Jupiter is in Ascendant with Ketu and aspected by Rahu. Moon happens to be in 12th and Saturn in another inauspicious house i.e. 6th i.e. 8th lord in the 6th in the sign of Jupiter. Therefore, 9th House, and its Lord Jupiter were heavily afflicted. Sun in the 3rd house (though with Mercy and Venus) had also the 10th aspect of Saturn and 2nd lord Sun had the 4th aspect of Mars. Apparently, the father of the native had to be in serious trouble and that may why be the death took place on 10th October 1990 when position of planets was as under:

From the transit of planet, it is found that the 9th Lord Jupiter is in Ascendant with Ketu and aspected by Rahu. Moon happens to be in 12th and Saturn in another inauspicious house i.e. 6th i.e. 8th lord in the 6th in the sign of Jupiter. Therefore, 9th House, and its Lord Jupiter were heavily afflicted. Sun in the 3rd house (though with Mercy and Venus) had also the 10th aspect of Saturn and 2nd lord Sun had the 4th aspect of Mars. Apparently, the father of the native had to be in serious trouble and that may why be the death took place on 10th October.

How to Earn Wealth and Wisdom!

Planetary Combinations Conferring Status, Wealth and Wisdom - (Raj Yogas or Auspicious Combinations in the Horoscope)

Rise and fall in life is well known. Some persons are born wealthy and others acquire wealth by their self efforts and hard labour and they continue prospering in their mission and reach at the height with the change of ‘Dasha’ of the Planets. Actually they are born with good and auspicious combinations to come up in their field. For example, the Sun in the 10th House is bound to take the native to hold a high position including in the Government. It has been seen that all High Government officials have their Sun either in the 10th House or in Leo sign or in exaltation sign- Aries. So these combinations are formed by planets. Similarly, afflicted Sun, Sun in Libra (debilitation sign) can give fall from the position.

2. The following principles will throw light on various combinations in your Horoscope specially for females.

i.) Guru in Lagna, Chandra in 7th or in his own Vargas and Sukra in 10th, the woman will become the wife of a king or a ruler, even if she is born in a poor family and inferior caste. Here it means that although a girl may be in humble circumstances and belong to a lower caste than that of the ruler, she will become his wife. Beauty is no doubt a powerful weapon for women to conquer men, but sometimes love is blind and women of ordinary complexion and beauty will be courted by a ruler, what we may call a lucky girl.

ii.) If benefices occupy the kendras or if they are in Lagna and if the 7th House falls in a Nara Rasi or signs like Mithuna, Kanya, Thula, the first half or Dhanus or Kumbha, occupied by evil planets the girl will have great wealth, will have patience and agreeable temper upon her as servants. She will have great political power.

iii.) If 11th house is occupied by Chandra and the 7th occupied by Sukra and Budha and have the aspect of Guru, she will become the bride of ruler and will have all comforts of life.

iv.) If Kanya becomes Lagna with Budha in it, and Guru is found located in the 11th, i.e. Kataka, in exaltation, she will become a queen and will command great respect and power. These two planets, Budha and Guru, are in exaltation and they produce Rajayoga.

v.) If Sukra (Venus) occupies Lagna, Budha is in the 3rd House and the powerful Guru possessed of Shadvarga strength and is located in the 4th, the girl will marry a king (VIP) and will have all royal enjoyments.

vi.) If at the time of birth there are three planets that have good Shadvargas, she will become the wife of a Raja (VIP). If four planets are so well situated with of a great emperor. If five planets have completely auspicious Shadvargas, she will become the wife of a very great emperor who has command over the three worlds and will travel in Vimanas (Aero planes).

vii.) If Budha joins Kanya or Mithuna and Jupiter accepted by Guru is with auspicious Shadvargas and the 4th has the aspect of Sukra, the girl will marry a Maharaja (king). The Sadvargas are:-

1.      Lagna of Birth or Ascendant.
2.      Hora or half of a Rasi or sign.
3.      Drekkana or one-third of a sign.
4.      Navamsa or one- ninth division of a Rasi.
5.      Dwadasamsa or one- twenty of a Zodiacal sign.
6.      Thrimsamsa or one- thirtieth division of a sign.
These six divisions constitute Shadvargas and when all are good, the planet is powerful. Other works mention Shodasavargas or 16 divisions and they are:

1.      Lagna       
2.      Hora         
3.      Drekkana
4.      Panchamsa
5.      Saptamsa
6.      Navamsa
7.      Dwadasamsa
8.      Trayodasamsa
9.      Panchadasamsa
10.  Shodasamsa
11.  Thrimsamsa
12.  Ekadasamsa
13.  Shashtamsa
14.  Ashtamsa
15.  Chaturthamsa
16.  Shashtiamsa

viii.) If Kuja occupies 3 or 6 and Sani with auspicious Shadvargas joins 11 and Guru aspects Lagna the native becomes the wife of warrior, will be fond of righteous conduct and will be loving her husband and be loved by him.

ix.) If the Sun occupies Mesha his sign of exaltation with all the auspicious Shadvargas, accepted or conjoined by benefices and the birth falls in a fixed sign, the girl will become a queen and will command many conveyances and servants.

x.) If lagna falls in Kanya with Budha combined there, Guru in the 11th, Sukra in the 2nd and Poorna Chandra (full Moon) in the 10th, she will be an empress. She will be charitable, generous, blessed with sympathetic speech, virtuous and helpful to the poor and distressed.

xi.) Look also to the position of Venus for all combinations- whether afflicted debilitated.
