As the years roll on, it is very difficult to write about one’s teacher, guru or acharya. Words do fail me toexpress the impact created on the mind. The best thing is to go to the scriptures which appropraitely does the job : Gurparsaad - The Grace of the Guru: “The Guru or 'Teacher' is He who removes that darkness of ignorance. The Lord or the Reality which is all-pervasive and ever-present in each and every thing in thisuniverse is veiled due to our ignorance. He who is the Kartaa Purakh, the one Doer, or Creator, Sustainer andDestroyer, He alone takes the form of the Guru to liberate us from the bondage of samsaara. Therefore we say,"Guru Brahmaah, Guru Vishnuh, Guru Devo Maheshwarah, Gurureva Param Brahma, Tasmai Shri GuraveNamah. Guru is the Creator, Brahma. Guru is the Sustainer, Vishnu. Guru is the Destroyer, Shiva. Guru is theLord of the Universe. Guru alone is the Absolute Reality, the Param Brahma. Unto that noble Teacher, myhumble prostrations."
 
THE GRAHA OR THE PLANETS IN HINDU VEDIC ASTROLOGY
A research study done for lovers of Sidereal/Nirayana Astrology by Prof.anthony Writer 
Graha is a Sanskrit word that means to grab, grasp, hold, apprehend. The nine grahas(planets) are the incarnating forces that bind the living beings to their karmas. These nineare namely Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. Thegrahas hold the elements, namely, earth, water, fire, air and ether in the three realms of existence; physical, astral, causal to manifest the differentiated world.Everything that exists, everything that is perceived through the senses, is ruled by thegrahas. Naming everything that a particular planet rules is an exhaustive task so giving afew examples and interpreting the general characteristics of each planet will give one ageneral and informative idea. The priceless jewels of knowledge are graciously given bySage Parasara in the Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra. In the following verses in Chapter 3,sage Parashara states about the grahas:BPHS CH.3 V. 2-3. Par
āś
ara: O Brahmin, listen to the account of placement of the heavenlybodies. Out of the many luminous bodies sighted in the skies some are stars, yet some arePlanets. Those, that have no movements, are the Nakshatras (asterisms).BPHS, CH, 3,V.4-6. Those are called Planets, which move through the Nakshatras (orstellar mansions) in the zodiac. The said zodiac comprises of 27 Nakshatras commencingfrom Ashvini. The same area is divided in 12 parts equal to 12 R 
āś
is commencing fromAries. The names of the Planets commence from Sun. The R 
āś
i rising is known, as Lagna.Based on Lagna and the Planets, joining and departing from each other, the natives goodand bad effects are deducted.The following has been added by Santhanam stating what Sage Parashari hassuggested:“Lagna is a very important point in the horoscope. It is the R 
āś
i that rises in theEast, on the latitude of birth. The apparent rising of a R 
āś
i is due to the rotation of theearth on its own axis at a rate of motion, causing every degree of the zodiac seeminglyascend on the eastern horizon. Approximately two hours are required for a R 
āś
i to pass viathe horizon, thereby every degree taking four minutes to ascend. This duration, however, isactually dependent on the concerned latitude.Actually Sun has no motion. His motion is an apparent one, as viewed from the rotatingearth. Other Planets, including the nodes, have v6thed rates of motion. The average dailymotions of the Planets, which are not, however standard, are, as follows: Sun 1, Moon 13-15, Mars30-45, Mercury 65-100, Venus 62-82, Jupiter 5-15, Saturn 2, Rahu/Ketu 3. Withsuch different motions, a Planet forms various Aspects with others. These Aspects throughlongitudinal distances have a great deal of utility in Jyotishya. This is what Mah
ā
r
ś
iParashara suggests to be considered.”The names of the planets. their nature, governance, status, complexions, deities, genders,primodial compounds, nature, etc. are given in the following verses of BPHS:10. Names of Planets. The names of the nine Planets, respectively, are Sun, Moon, Mars,Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.11. Benefics and Malefics. Among these, Sun, Saturn, Mars, decreasing Moon, Rahu andKetu (the ascending and the descending nodes of Moon) are malefics, while the rest arebenefics. Mercury, however, is a malefic, if he joins a malefic.
