August 2000 Jyotish News
somewhere near Kunvar Beyt and flows southwards in the west of Khavda area.A branch of the channel flows westwards.A river flowing from Nagarparkar desert in Pakistan to Bela Island has also beenobserved in the images. Significant disturbances are believed to have takenplace in the area south-south-west of Nada Beyt in the Great Rann, north ofSantalpur taluka of Patan district and the area west of Suigam in Vav taluka ofBanaskantha district. Scientists are awaiting confirmation of reports about thechanges in these locations.
It had been predicted by Sri Achyuta Das (disciple of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu) of the Jyotish Tradition of Puri, Orissa that the year 2000 AD shall mark the turning point in the sub-cycles of time (Brahma Vidya www.sjvc.net ) when the small period of Satya for 480 years shall commence.This editor had envisaged a period of renewed learning and emergence of all signs for the reestablishment of Satya Sanatana Dharma (Vedic Remedies in Astrology Published by Sagar Publications). Thus one of the important symbols of Vidya is Saraswati the presiding deity of Knowledge. She is worshipped as a river near which Lord Krishna established Dwarka and Somanath (the Latta- highest form for worshipping Lord Shiva and the most powerful of the twelve Jyotirlinga’s worshipped on Mondays. This is the only form of the Lord Shiva as a giver of great wealth being seated on Nandi with Durga on His left and with the Mudras similar to that of Mahalakshmi).
This emergence of the river Saraswati has proved once again that the words of Paramguru Achyuta Dasa cannot fail. Learning and wisdom shall be on the rise,as Satya Sanatana will be reestablished as time progresses.
Saraswati is Bharati or the Goddess of India. Many believe that Ganga is the symbol of Satya Sanatana Dharma, but that is not true. Ganga washes the sins as She emrges from the head of Shiva (Gangotri/Shiva associated with the Himalaya) and hence has the highest cleansing power being the Neela Shakti of Shiva. Bharati is another name for Saraswati and She symbolizes the Satya Sanatana Dharma as given in the prayer:
“Gurodhyascha Grahebhyascha Mayabaddhoya-manjalih; Prasanna-mamansaste-me Satyam Kurvantu Bharatim”
Thus, Sarasati is Mother India, Who has emerged to again grant freedom from bondage for India and this Golden eagle (Garuda-symbol of Satya Sanatana on which Bhagavan rides) shall fly again.
Yes, there were tears when we heard the shocking news for the first time. This is not the first time that India sees sorrow nor will this be the last. We Indians have learnt to drink our tears and look ahead for we know and believe that birth and death is but another event in the long life of the Atma and that those who have performed their Dharma shall find a better opportunity in the lives to come. After all it is this very land of Gujarat that taught the most glorious spiritual path of “Ahimsa” in politics (Mahatma Gandhi) to the world. My tears were more personal
