Below are the symptoms of normal seasonal flu. The results are from a UK based medical website –

http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Flu/Pages/Symptoms.aspx

Seasonal flu can give you any of these symptoms:

sudden fever (a temperature of 38°C/100.4°F or above),

dry, chesty cough,

headache,

tiredness,

chills,

aching muscles,

limb or joint pain,

diarrhea or stomach upset,

sore throat,

runny or blocked nose,

sneezing,

loss of appetite, and

difficulty in sleeping.

Babies and small children with flu may also appear drowsy, unresponsive and floppy.

Your symptoms will usually peak after two to three days and you should begin to feel much better within five to eight days. A cough and general tiredness may last for two to three weeks.

Many people with swine flu have had diarrhea and vomiting. Nearly everyone with flu has at least two of these symptoms. But these symptoms can also be caused by many other conditions. That means that you and your doctor can't know, just based on your symptoms, if you've got swine flu. Health care professionals may offer a rapid flu test, although a negative result doesn't mean you don't have the flu. The accuracy of the test depends on the quality of the manufacturer’s test, the sample collection method, and how much viral sample a person is shedding at the time of testing.

Although the symptoms of both flu and swine flu are the same, we cannot conclude that they are the same disease. On the very same grounds, just because two people are born in the same time it doesn’t mean that they will have exactly same life styles. Jyotish has never claimed this and this is why the factors of Sthana, Kala and Patra come in about which I have written about in AIAC Times Vol 1.

However, this very experiment proves the success of jyotish and not its failure. What compelled these researchers to conduct an experiment on 2,000 babies born in early March 1958?

The very fact that each of these babies (born in 1958 early March) were kept under a research supervision all their life itself talks about something common in all their charts.

It is stated that these babies were born minutes away from each other.

Let us see their charts – I have assumed that the date of birth is March 10, 1958, time of birth is 20:12:29 hours, and place of birth is London, UK (below):

We see a strong influence of two malefics on the Lagna, Rahu and Saturn. The Lagna lord is influenced by Saturn very strongly and shows the influence of cold research from the fourth house. There are numerous other combinations in this chart that show how unfortunate these kids were to be tracked all their life as mere guinea pigs of an experiment. Did the researchers ever think once that by keeping track of all their (the children’s) lives they themselves were playing their role in establishing the truth in jyotish. When will people really see the light?

In the first chapter of Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra, Parasara answers the question of “Creation” put by his student Maitreya. A few verses from it with my commentary are being produced below. The whole chapter will be a book by itself, sometime in the future. The way these few verses are explained should be a motivation to the modern scientific minded jyotishis to delve deeper into the realm of jyotish and relate it to science as we know it today.

[Amarnath’s Commentary – Parasara rishi reiterates the belief in Sanatan Dharma that God is one. He can be called MahaVishnu or Sada Shiva or any other name. This principle monotheistic belief is reiterated by Parasara rishi when he says “eko-avyakta-aatmako” which means one all pervading Almighty. God is indescribable since he is beyond human comprehension. The three Gunas with which creation functions are Satwa, Raja and Tama Gunas. God is beyond the three Gunas and has transcended creation. This has to be the case since He is the creator of the Universe. A little note on the three Gunas seems relevant to mention here. The word “Guna” means attribute. Satwa Guna is a state of perfect balance. It is often equated with balanced light and a result of Satwo is happiness and joy. Tamo (or Tama) Guna is a state of darkness and thus the result of the guna is ignorance. Rajo (or Raja) is the state between darkness and balanced light. Too little or excessive light is also Rajo Guna. Rajo Guna is a dynamic attribute and results in dissatisfaction. According to physics, matter and energy are the two components of the physical universe. Matter can be equated to Tamo Guna and Energy to Satwo and Rajo Guna. Dynamic Energy is Rajo Guna and Static Energy is Satwo Guna.]

[Amarnath’s Commentary – By just a part of Himself, the Lord creates, maintains and destroys the physical universe as per his divine play. It is a deep rooted belief in Sanatan Dharma that God is in every one and everyone is born with a portion of the God. God also exists everywhere and in everything, living or non-living. The whole culture of the Sanatan Dhrama (popularly known as Hinduism) is based on this principle. A Hindu is greeted not by a handshake but by folded hands and by the utterance of the word Namaskara (or the modern short form of it called Namaste), which literally means “I bow to the God in you” (Namah – bow in form of reverence, Ish- God, kara-I do).]

Is there a deeper significance to why only a part of God is “used” in the creation of the dynamic physical universe we live in? Did Parasara rishi just make this up on a random basis? To search for the answer, let us visit the NASA website –

http://science.nasa.gov/astrophysics/focus-areas/what-is-dark-energy/

It turns out that roughly 70% of the Universe is dark energy.

everything on Earth, everything observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the Universe. Come to think of it, maybe it shouldn't be called "normal" matter at all, since it is such a small

The rest -

Dark matter makes up about 25%.

fraction of the Universe.

Thus it seems that Parasara rishi was in tune with modern science when we wrote the above verses. Only a part “ekaamShena” of the Lord is used to create, maintain and destroy the universe which is the play of matter and its counterpart energy, in other words the play area of His divine game. This is the area where matter and energy plays its game and this is the area where Purusha and Prakriti dominates, Purusha being matter, Prakriti being energy.

[Amarnath’s Commentary – Only a “Tattwa Darshina” will be able to know and get the evidence of 75% of the God which is pure nectar (or ether). Tattwa means the elements and Darshan is philosophy. Only one who is a philosopher on the elements or in modern terms a quantum physicist. Perhaps 70 % of Dark Energy is approximated to 75% by Parasara rishi for easy remembrance. In the next sentence Parasara says that “know that the evidence of this is present anytime and is happening continuously”. What this means is that the % of dark energy in the universe is constant and can be verified at any time.]

In the next few verses, Parasara rishi goes on to explain the created universe with beautiful analogy from Krishna’s life which has been so misunderstood till today. I will write about this and do plan to publish this in a more organized book sometime in the future.

I again appeal to the growing intelligence of young and modern jyotishis not to waste time on useless arguments in cyber forums but to shut down the computer, pick-up a classic and read. Then try to comprehend the classic in terms of the time and period in which it was written and see its validity in the modern era. BVB and K.N. Rao have done a wonderful job in statistical research but have failed terribly explain the “why” behind the theory. SJC and Sanjay Rath have a done a splendid job in explaining some of the very important “why”s but have failed terribly in expressing and interpreting the facts without religious annotations or in terms of modern scientific facts. However, they have showed us the path and it is now up to us to walk it and take jyotish to the next step.

The original premise of this month’s Sun’s column was to examine the effect of the Sun’s position at the inauguration of U.S. Presidents on their presidential terms. There are many factors in mundane astrology relating to the time for oath taking ceremonies. Of particular importance is lagna, planets in lagna, Moon, planets in Kendra and trikona, panchang, and of course, the Sun, since it represents the country’s head of state, its soul and expression. Below is a recommendation from Daivagya Acharya Shri Ram’s Muhurta Chintamani, translated by G.C. Sharma, Sagar Publications:

The auspicious Muhurta for the Coronation of a king is when the Sun is in Uttaryana (moving towards the North and is in the signs from Capricorn to Gemini), Jupiter, the Moon and Venus are not combust, Mars, the Sun, the Lord of the Natal Ascendant, the Lord of the Present Dasha of the would-be-king and the Lord of the Janama Rasi or sign are endowed with strength.

Also Chapter 18 of Time Tested Techniques of Mundane Astrology, M.S Mehta and A. Radhika,

Vani Publications contains a thorough discussion of the various factors with examples.

Regarding U.S. presidents, there is a limitation regarding the day of the inauguration. Since 1789 until the passage of the 20th Amendment, presidential inaugurations were held on March 4 with some exceptions (i.e. March 4 falling on a Sunday (4 times) and the deaths of Harrison, Taylor, Lincoln (assassination), Garfield (assassination), McKinley (assassination) and Harding). No time was legislated for taking the oath of office on March 4, however, it was traditionally done at noon or close to noon on inauguration day.

The 20th Amendment of 1933 set noon on January 20 (6 degrees Capricorn) as the beginning of the presidential term and the ending of the prior term, and changed the inauguration day from March 4 (19 degrees Aquarius), ostensibly to shorten the “lame duck” period between the outgoing and incoming administrations. January 20 is five or six days after the Sun’s entry into Capricorn which is the beginning of uttarayana or the upward movement of the Sun. As cited above, Jyotish classics prescribe that coronations should take place during uttarayana, when the Sun is in the rasis from Capricorn to Gemini (roughly from mid-January to mid-July).

The source of the noon inauguration tradition is likely English history which is based on even earlier tradition. For example, the coronation of William the Conqueror took place on Christmas day in 1066 at noon in London. About two and half centuries earlier, Charlemagne was crowned in 800 on Christmas day, also at noon, the time chosen by the court's astrologer. Interestingly, Christmas Day was about 9 degrees Capricorn in the tropical zodiac.

Abhijit muhurta (8 th muhurta of the day) is consideration one of the best muhurtas for oaths and coronations of heads of state, the Sun’s particular province. It begins about 1 ghati (24 minutes) before Local Noon Time (LNT) and ends 24 minutes thereafter (total 48 minutes) or approximately 11:25 am to 12:25 pm local time. When the Sun first enters Capricorn, particularly if LNT is used, the Abhijit muhurta guarantees placement of the Sun in the 10 th house where it gets directional strength.

AIAC Times [Volume 5]

AIAC Times [Volume 5] In addition to the above astrological criteria, the Sun’s relationship with Saturn

In addition to the above astrological criteria, the Sun’s relationship with Saturn (both are karakas of the 10 th house of royalty) is important. The Sun rules the Kshatriya class (politicians and rulers). For both dates, March 4 and January 20, the Sun’s dispositor is Saturn but for the March 4 dates, we have to also look at Rahu, the co-ruler of Aquarius, keeping in mind that that Saturn’s caste is Sudra (workers) and Rahu’s caste is Chandala (the opposition).

Unfortunately, I was unable to locate inauguration times for any presidents prior to Franklin Roosevelt except for George Washington. (The inauguration times I have are courtesy of Astrologers Weekly.) However, it turns out that these two presidents, Washington and Roosevelt, happen to be the most significant in regard to the length of their presidential terms. George Washington is important because he was the first president (1789-1797), and served two four year terms, setting a precedent that was followed by all succeeding presidents until Franklin Roosevelt, the 32 nd president (1933-1945) who served the longest of any president (over three complete terms) causing passage of the 22 nd Amendment limiting presidents to two 8 year terms. For a more modern comparison, the inaugurations of the most recent presidents, George W. Bush and Barak Obama are also discussed.

The question has been raised whether changing the U.S. inauguration day from March 4 to January 20 at noon changed the country’s destiny from the original purpose of the founding fathers. An American astrologer and occultist, Dan Sewell Ward, lamented moving the swear-in day from March 4 to January 20. He says “Originally the dating of major events of the Republic was based on:

July 4 (Independence Day), approximately November 4 (Election Day), and March 4 for the

presidential inauguration. The November day was varied slightly in that Tuesday (ruled by Mars’ assertiveness) needed to be election day.The 4th day of these three months (exactly one-third of a year apart) represents a grand trine, one of the most delightful and beneficial aspects in astrology. It

The

It

An opposing argument could be made that the January 20 date is far better suited to the world power that the U.S. would become. Compare the Sun’s position on March 4 at noon (in Aquarius in the 9 th house where it is a karaka) to the Sun’s position on January 20 at noon (in Capricorn in the 10 th house where it gets dig bala). The country grew from an isolationist agricultural-industrial power into the world’s greatest military power during Franklin Roosevelt’s administration. Roosevelt’s first inauguration was on March 4, 1933. His second inauguration was on January 20, 1937, when the 20th Amendment first went into effect.

Mars and exalted Jupiter and the once-rebels must deal with the shock of letting go of England and forging their new country’s identity. Saturn aspects the Sun by both rasi and graha drishti (3 rd aspect) and aspects Rahu by 10 th graha aspect indicating a dry but stable beginning for the new government and its relationship with its President. Washington wanted to serve without payment but finally accepted payment to avoid making the presidency possible only for the wealthy. He turned out to be a skilled and fair administrator and only reluctantly agreed to serve a second term.

George Washington’s second inauguration took place on the prescribed day, March 4, 1793, a Monday, this time in Philadelphia, and reportedly he took the oath precisely at noon:

Washington limited himself to serving two four year terms. The Sun’s co-lord Rahu (the opposition) opposes the Sun by graha drishti. In 1794, Washington ably took up military command again to enforce a whisky tax (Sun rules Rahu in the 3 rd , Mars in 10 th in Pisces is aspected by Jupiter in Scorpio in the 6 th ). Moon and Jupiter are together in the 6 th house of service but Moon is debilitated. By limiting himself to two terms, Washington set a precedent followed by every president until war-time President Franklin Roosevelt. At the end of his last term, he was very happy to return to farming.

his programs, he gained much greater support from Congress. Needless to say, he also had many enemies (6 th house ruler Mars (R) with Jupiter (R) in the 3 rd house) including the war veterans in a dispute over benefits and people opposed to the confiscation of privately owned gold. Though he suffered from polio, he managed to keep his disability from public knowledge throughout his political career.

Franklin Roosevelt’s second inauguration, the first under the 22 nd Amendment, took place on Wednesday, January 20, 1937, 12:29 pm, U.S. Capitol, Washington DC:

The Sun is in Capricorn in the 10 th where it gets directional strength, one of the classical positions for oaths. The Sun is aspected by Mars by 4 th graha drishti, its only aspect. The challenges facing him included the growing threat of Hitler and the isolationist attitude of the nation (Moon in the 1 st in Aries, opposed by Mars in the 7 th and aspected by Rahu and Jupiter in the 9 th as well as Saturn in the 7 th ). He secretly developed the country’s military arsenal (8 th house Scorpio) and forged a close relationship with Winston Churchill (Mars in the 7 th ). Finally, in 1940 he openly opposed the Neutrality Acts by giving destroyers to Great Britain. He ran for an unprecedented third term and won by appealing to popular isolationist sentiment promising to do everything he could to keep the country out of the war. His third inauguration (not shown) took place on January 20, 1941, 12:03 EWT, U.S. Capitol, Washington, DC. By December of that year, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the country was at war with Japan and Nazi Germany.

For Roosevelt’s fourth and final inauguration, I could not find a recorded time, so the chart below uses the “legal” time, January 20, 1945, noon, White House, Washington DC:

AIAC Times [Volume 5] Sun’s ruler Saturn (R) is in the 3 r d with Rahu

Sun’s ruler Saturn (R) is in the 3 rd with Rahu aspected by Mars, Mercury and Ketu by graha drishti 7 th aspect. Mars is both lagna ruler and ruler of the 8 th (likely not recommended for oaths since you want the ruler of the chart to be stronger than the 8 th house ruler). In addition, by shad bala, Mars is the weakest planet in the chart, and creates a lot of havoc. The Sun in the 10 th in Capricorn only has 5 th graha drishti from Jupiter (R) and no other aspects. Roosevelt died of a massive brain hemorrhage on April 12, 1945 during his natal Ketu/Rahu/Jupiter Vimsottari dasha, just shy of three months into his 4 th term.

It is mentioned in many classics that the eighteen sages (named above) has been recognized as the original creators of Jyotish or astrology. One of the sages mentioned there is Lomasa rishi.

Recently a hunt has begun to find works or manuscripts or translations of Lomasa rishis’s work called Lomasa Samhita.

Lomasa Samhita translation is very much in print and there is no apparent reason to mark this classic as lost knowledge. I have a copy of Lomsasa Samhita with me in Chicago and anyone interested can contact me. Those in India or in any part of the world can purchase a copy of the book (original Sanskrit text with translation into English) from the Publisher details given below:

AIAC Times [Volume 5] I go to the details of the backdrop story of Lomasa Samhita,

I go to the details of the backdrop story of Lomasa Samhita, it should be mentioned that the name Lomasa means one who is hairy in appearance with excess body hair.

The Samhita begins with an introduction by Lomasa rishi himself. Lomasa rishi states that once all sages including Shounak were present in a forest called “Naimisharanya”. All the sages asked the most illustrious rishi Suta about the knowledge which gives the result of all Karma. Suta rishi states this knowledge is the most secret and sacred. This question about Karma and Jyotish was first asked by Devi Parvati to Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva, in response to Devi Parvati, first mentioned the importance of the name of Rama (avatar of Vishnu). He then added that the root of all knowledge is He Himself, but the one who spread it to humanity is Lomasa rishi. Lord Shiva went on to say that Lomasa rishi is the son of Brahma. The sages Bhrigu, Vashishtha, Narad and many other rishis learned astrology from Lomasa rishi. Lord Shiva even specifies how and when each rishi (including Parasara, Garga etc. sages) got the knowledge of Lomasa samhita from the disciples of Lomasa rishi. There are many details mentioned in the classic such as the planetary configuration under which Lomasa Samhita began. Devi Parvati inquired as to why this Samhita was studied and written in the first place. To answer this Lord Shiva mentions the backdrop of Lomasa Samhita below.

Once upon a time in Krita Yuga, there was an extremely powerful and honest king who ruled the present West Bengal (India) and Bangladesh region (Vanga desha) called Krittidhwaja. His first wife Kamala had twins. They were born to the same parents, in the same year, month, tithi (phase of the moon), same day of the week, with the same Yoga, Lagna (Ascendant), Kala (time). However, their appearance and nature were completely different. One child was fair, the other one was dark, one was tall and the other short. As time went on, one grew up to be extremely kind natured and the other very cruel and scheming. The king got extremely worried about this phenomenon and invited all the great sages of the time. Vashishtha, Kashyap, Bhrigu, Garga and many other prominent sages and learned men arrived in the king’s kingdom. After taking care of their well-being, the king showed them the natal chart of his two sons and inquired about this diametrically contradictory nature and appearance of his twin kids. The chart details are clearly mentioned in the classic and it is as given below:

Both the kids (princes) had the same Rasi (house) and Graha (planetary) positions and identical Navamsas.

Seeing this chart, all sages present made some predictions. They are given below –

The kids will be extremely kind, skilled in warfare, destroyer of their enemies. They will be fair in complexion, righteous, tall and muscular. In the 8 th year they will begin their education. In the 12 th year they will get married. In the 28 th year, they will have kids. In the 32rd year there will be a great war in the kingdom in which they will die and achieve the heavenly abode. Their death date will be Magha month (Sun in Aquarius, February – March), Shukla Paksha (bright half of the Moon), Dwadashi (12 th . day of the bright moon), Sunday at sunrise facing the northern direction.

AIAC Times [Volume 5]

AIAC Times [Volume 5] On hearing the predictions, the king mentioned that all the predictions made

On hearing the predictions, the king mentioned that all the predictions made were true for one of the twins but not true for the other one. The other twin was evil, cruel, cowardly, and illiterate, with an awful temper, dark complexioned, short in stature and very poor.

The king requested the sages to analyze the situation and let him know as to why one child was so different from the other when both were born around the same time with the same Rasi and Navamsa chart.

The sages then replied to the king saying that he should ask this question to his priest Sumati who was from the family of rishi Bhrigu. They assured him that Sumati rishi would know the answer to the question posed by the king of Bengal Krittidhwaja.

The king immediately asked for Sumati and sent his messenger to Sumati’s home. Sumati rishi used to live in Anga desha (the present day Bihar, India). To cut the long story short, Sumati had passed away and instead his son Sujanma came to the king’s court. Sujanma was well received and after the initial discourse was asked to look at the puzzle of the twin princes. Sujanma replied that he had studied everything from his father except jyotish and was incapable of replying to the king. All the sages then explained the importance of jyotish and how one can never be called a true Brahmin without the knowledge of jyotish. Sujanma mentioned that he wanted to learn it and asked the sages for the name of a teacher he could learn it from. They gave him the name of Lomasa rishi who lived in Badrinarayan.

Sujanam went to Lomasa rishi and requested the knowledge of jyotish from him. The discourse between Lomasa rishi and Sujanma is recorded as Lomasa Samhita.

To read an introduction on Khona, I would request readers to download and read Abhishekha’s article on Saptarishi’s Astrology.

If Sun transits the second house from the natal Moon sign, then the native experiences fear.

[Amarnath’s Commentary – The transit of Sun into the signs is an indication of solar months. The above mentioned verses indicate favorable months for the native. Let us take an example. If someone has a natal Moon sign of Leo, then according to the above verse, Sun’s transit in Libra, Capricorn, Taurus and Gemini would give favorable results. If we map this according to the Hindu calendar, then the time period between Tula Sankranti (the solar day when Sun enters sidereal Libra sign) to Vrishchik Sankranti, Makar Sankranti to Kumbha Sankranti, Vrishabha Sankranti to Karka Sankranti (Vrishabha to Mithuna would be 10 th house and Mithuna to Karka would be 11 th house and hence they are grouped together as positive results) will be favorable to the native. If we further go by the Gregorian calendar dates, we would see that approximately 14 October to 14 November, 14 January to 14 February, 14 May to 14 June, 14 June to 14 July will be favorable to the native every year. However, as a personal observation I add that the exact degree of the natal Moon sign holds special significance. Let me explain with an example. Let us assume that two natives are born with Moon in Leo. One has Moon in 2 degrees Leo (native 1) and the other in 23 degrees Leo (native 2). When the Sun transits 2 degrees Gemini, that time will hold special significance for native 1 and when Sun transits 23 degrees Gemini, native 2 will experience special significance as per the rules laid down by the great Khana. This transit result of the Sun based on the exact degree of the natal Moon would hold true for transit results of other planets too. This transit result is based on a solar year.]

[Amarnath’s Commentary – Transit of the Moon through each sign occurs almost every 3 days. Thus the phenomenon is very common and the native may not experience the above results on a continued and on-going basis. However, based on other parameters of operating Dasas and coupled with transit effects of other planets, the transit effect of the Moon can be a very effective predictive tool.]

Although this doesn’t strictly deal with transiting Mars with respect to natal Moon, but such verses do throw a lot of light on the importance on the transit of natural malefics.]
