Pancha-Pakshi Shastra is based on ancient literature in Tamil language. Pancha means five and Pakshi means Bird.The Pancha-Pakshi system has some resemblance to the Pancha-Bhuta (Five elements) system of Vedic Astrology.It is believed that the Five Elements represented by five birds, influence and control all the actions of humanbeings. These five birds take their turns in a special sequence and radiate their powers during day and night. Thepower that takes effect first on a day or night and the sequence that follows depends on the day of the week andthe Paksha (waxing half or waning half cycles) of the Moon.One of the five birds is assigned to every human being as the controlling power based on the Birth Star of theperson and the Paksha of the Moon at the time of birth. The activity of this Main Bird at a given point of time andthe activity of the Sub-Bird at that time and the relationship between them indicates whether the time will bebeneficial and lucky for the person or not. Pacha-Pakshi Shasta is very popular in south India especially TamilNadu. It helps selection of auspicious time and also for answering queries (Prasna)The five birds in the Pancha-Pakshi Shastra are:* 1- Vulture* 2- Owl* 3- Crow* 4- Cock* 5- PeacockThese birds engage in any one of the following five activities at any given time:* 1- Rule* 2- Eat* 3- Walk* 4- Sleep* 5- DieThe birds are considered most powerful when they rule and least powerful when they die.To find out your Birth Pakshi (Nakshatra Pakshi) you have to know your birth star according to Vedic Astrology andthe Paksha of the Moon at the time of your birth. The half of the Lunar Cycle when the Moon increases in size andreaches the Full Moon (Pournami) is called Sukla-Paksha and the other half of the cycle when the size decreasesuntil the New Moon is called the Krishna-Paksha. Birth Stars are based on the longitude of Moon and are 27 innumber from Aswini to Revati. Once you know the Birth Star (Nakshatra) and the Paksha you can find yourNakshatra Pakshi (Bird) from the following chart.
Pancha-Pakshi Sastram, Indian Custom
Pancha-Pakshi Sastram is one amongst the many unique scientific treatises of the Hindus.
Among the many unique scientific treatises of the Hindus there is one morenamed as Pancha-Pakshi Sastram. This forms a portion of the Hinduastronomical science. Twenty-seven forms of constellations are recognizedby the Hindu astrologers in the moon`s path. Each is called a lunar mansionand in each of which the moon happens to be each day. These lunarmansions are considered to be of great practical consequence from theirgood or evil influence by the astrologers. And this is calculated not only atthe time of birth of an individual but also during his lifetime. The situation of the moon in this or that Nakshatram at the moment is considered to regulatethe occurring of an event affecting the individual concerned. Every person isborn with his special star, mansion or Nakshatram. He or she can be called bywhatever name in which the moon was at the moment of his or her birth. TheNakshatrams, are a source of infinite terror to the Hindus of all castes. Theyare consulted at births and marriages and in all times of difficulty, sicknessand so on. Days and events become lucky or unlucky according to thedecision of these mansions.It is not possible to say when these twenty-seven stars, which are in themoon`s path, were created. But they are Kalpam after Kalpam i.e. severalgreat ages along with other objects of creation destroyed, recreated,maintained for the next Kalpam, and again destroyed. The objects of creation are not quite the same at thebeginning of eachKalpam. This is because of the fact that the good and bad actions outstanding against each object of creation. But in the case of the permanent devatas who do not return to the earth after their stay in Swarga i.e. heaven as the result of the good deeds isover, the fresh creation is quite the same at the beginning of each Kalpam. Every constellation, whether itis a fixed star or a planet,is a spherical body and it has a deity, which looks after it. The spherical body or Mandalam as it is called,is inanimate. While thedeity, which has charge of, it has a soul and is subject to the orders of the supreme deity. The orders of theminor deity are alsoimportant under whose command they are placed. All the spherical bodies including the earth attract eachother, and move inharmony in perfect accordance with the rules laid down by the supreme deity in Vedas and also inastrology. It is this attractionthat constitutes the influence, which the fixed stars and planets exercise over the living objects on theearth, and the nature of each influence is described in astrology. Astrology is part of Vedas and every person who has faith in theVedas must place faith inastrology. The Vedas are intended to reveal truths, which human reason cannot discover, and which musttherefore be acceptedwithout questioning. No cross-examination should be directed against those truths. Implicit faith must beplaced on Vedicrevelations.These Nakshatrams or lunar mansions are grouped under five birds. And the names can be mentioned asthe hawk, the owl, thecrow, cock and the peacock. Hence each individual has not only his own Nakshatram but also his ownbird out of these five. These
birds are said to be in any one of the five states, namely: Eating, Walking, Ruling, Sleeping and Dyingduring the five watches ordivisions of twelve hours of both the night and day time of each day of the week. Further, these statesvary in the dark fortnightfrom what they were during the week days of the bright fortnight.Most auspicious time for going on a voyage or a journey, for commencing, agricultural operations, foradvancing against enemies, forgoing to ask favours of persons in power, for purchases and sales and so on can be declared as when hisor her bird is either eatingor ruling. The next best time is when the bird is walking which state is not very good either. The hour inwhich his or her bird iseither asleep or dying is the worst hour that could be selected for any good attempt and is generallyconsidered to be the mostinauspicious for any undertaking.The arrangement of the state of the birds in the order of importance can be mentioned as ruling, eating,walking, sleeping and dying.Eating state is considered to be three-fourth important while walking has only half of the importance of the eating state. Sleepingstate is considered to be half as important as walking state, while the dying bird is half of the sleepingone.The table furnishing the bird under which, he or she is placed from the Nakshatram or lunar mansion isgiven in all the Panchangam of Indian calendar. It is comprised of five limbs. These can be mentioned as the tithi, the varam, thenakshatram, the yogam and thekaranam. A man desiring prosperity pays attention to the Tithi. One desirous of long life understandseverything about Varam or thedays of the week. The Nakshatrams are resorted to for being freed from sins. The Yogam is intended forobtaining immunity fromdiseases whereas the Karanam is said to secure for the observer success in all undertakings. Hence it wasthat the recital of thePanchangam was in vogue in olden days.
