nly by knowing the power of the planets in an individual’s horoscope, one can get a clear conclusion about the individual. The Atharva Veda gives great ideas about the planets and stars even long back before the telescopes were invented. The Astronomy tells about various stars and constellation of stars. But the Vedic Astrology speaks about twenty seven stars and the nature of the persons born in that particular star. This is only a guidline. The nature will vary according to the planets’ position I the horoscope. Anyone, those who wish to know more and more about the planets’ position in their horoscope and to solve the problems in the spiritual way as per the norms of Atharva Veda can contact me at USA Toll Free No. 1-888808-1418 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the past issue I explained about nine stars. In this issue, I wish to write about another set of nine stars. I am going to write about the stars and the nature of the persons born in that particular star. Karma 2
Magha Nakshatra: Spread from 0 degree to 13:20’ Simmam. Lord Sun is the lord of this star and the deity ‘Pitrigan’. Symbol-The royal Court with a royal throne. Attributes-The virtues and vices of the father’s family, wealth, glory, beauty, strength and prowess, luster and effulgence, superior qualities, sharpness of intellect, nobility, prestige, replenishment, and increase, wisdom, brilliance, capacity and willingness to donate, ancestors on the paternal side-all these are effected by Magha. In no star is the position of Lord Sun is so magnificent and dignified. Lord Sun in “Ashwini” is brilliant no doubt but the brilliancy of incendiary character. It burns everything about it. Lord Sun is then a terrible ball of fire. But in Magha, Lord Sun is like an emperor, confident and self-assured. If happy and pleased he is in a mood to make any benediction or gift. When Lord Sun is in Magha, Lord Sani gets alarmed and that is natural. For Sani is by character, of a mean disposition, the nature of a slave, no wonder that mean and lowly Sani cannot brook the beauty and the dignity of the position of Lord Sun in Magha. That is why Sani is “Neecha” and anti-meridian in Ashwini and meanness and wiliness of Sani increases. If Sani is the lord of 9th and 10th houses and is placed in the 4th house and associated with Magha he adversely influences the effects of the 4th and 10th houses. Magha is the cause of brightness and light. Therefore gloomy Grahas cannot stand it. Magha stands for noble impulses and incentives, the gift of Magha must always be a noble one. Magha has been described as glorious one. Those born in the star Makha are reserved, highly sexy, endowed with comforts and have wives who are also reserved. Knowledgeable,
Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar

Lord is Lord Sun, deity “Shivalinga”, Symbol-Swinging hammock. It is also called the Bhagadaivata Star. All the six majesties, pleasure and prosperity, love,
kind hearted, happy and endowed with good qualities, famous, kingly, daring and extremely soft personalities. They win over their enemies, loved by women, experts in arts, truthful, and learned. They are obedient, religious, loved by people, stable and bright.

The Lord is Lord Budha and the deity is Surya., symbol - closed hand. The 12 names of the sun are: (1) Arun, (2) Aditya, (3) Tapan, (4) Divakar, (5) Bhaskar, (6) Bhanu, (7) Martanda, (8) Mithra, (9)Ravi, (10) Bivakar, (11) Sahasramsu and (12) Surya. All the attributes of these names etymologically connotes are caused by this star. From the Surya we derive creativity and creation, and from creation we derive light, luster, and strength. Surya is the prime cause of dominion, kingship, power of immunity and the light that dispels darkness. Budha is the cause of knowledge. If placed in this star he sheds light all around. Lord Sun with this Nakshatra enhances the instinct of dominion and the capacity to rule over others. It brushes up human intelligence, making it more luminous and makes a man vibrant with life and light. The symbol is a closed hand or fist. It would follow that is signifies determination and clenched resolution. To keep everybody within one’s grip, the possessive instinct follows from the nature of this star. The magician and the pick-pocket are also born under this star - variation from nobler attributes. Those born in the star Hasta are stable bodied, untruthful, bear excellent character and warriors.

The art of construction, the art of engraving, embroidery, frame-making and everything that constitutes an artistic complex from fine embroidery and on the other hand industrial engineering, skill and the organization of Karma 3
enjoyment and sensual delight are caused by this Nakshatra. The origin of creation, it announces creation and development. The closure of it means destruction. The individual who in personal life succeeds in mastering the six impulses, that is the impulse of creativity which also masters death. Therefore, on the one hand this star symbolizes the joy of creation and enjoyment, and on the other hand signifies desirelessness and asceticism. On the one hand it is the gateway to creation, basic seed of it; on the other hand it aims at renunciation, dissolution, and a merger in ‘Brahma’. Fame and renown is the special feature of this star. Poorvapalguni and Uttarapalguni are symbol of good fortune and luck. It is the birth star of Guru. Those born in this star are experts in love making, strong and handsome but extremely fearful. They help others, and carry out works which cannot be done by others. They are angry, frauds, cruel and candid. They are bright, wealthy, givers, and experts in music and dance.

Spread from 26:40 Simmam to 10: degree Kanya. The lords are Lord Sun and Lord Mercury (Budha), symbol is a bed. Poorvapalguni and Uttarapalguni are pair together. Its attributes are much the same as those of Poorvapalguni. The only difference is that generosity, kindness, patronage and an eagerness to help the distressed, to help friends and intimates and those who seek help are more pronounced in this star. Those born in the Uttaram star are wealthy, know the science of weapons, impotent, respectful and endowed with attractive eyes. They are fixed to the sciences and stingy in expending money.

Those born in the first pada of Chittra are sharp, handsome, sexy, fickle, respected by people, religious and endowed with many children. They complete the works they desire, destroy their enemies, deceivers, increase their circle of friends, and happy. Swati Nakshatra: Spread from 6:40’ to 20: Thula. Lord is Sukra, the deity is the Wind and because of this latter factor this causes the attributes of the wind. Restlessness of disposition or physical restlessness, inability to stay still at any place comes from it; also fidgetiness and noise. It is self-assured and asserting. The winds are the Lords of North-West. From these are derived the knowledge, the physical internal adjustments of the 5 Winds Prana, Apana, Vyana, Udana and Samana. Also from this comes the storms and the whirl-wind, the concrete disturbance of the atmosphere, A person born under this star is good at buying and selling, his wealth and property come and go quite easily. He is an independent sort of man, always striving for more independence. Asceticism is yet another attribute of this star. Diseases of the wind are to be treated in reference to this. The Wind is the great scavenger, it sweats the dross and purifies. The winnowing of rice bears comparison to this. Those born in the star Swati are wise, witty and learned. They are religious and pleasant minded. They are endowed with the body of kingly symbols, bright and handsome and loved by their wives. They perform religious works, truthful, experts in transactions, sexy, givers and learned. They are obedient, lovers of pious people, experts in architecture and sculpture, stingy and respect gods and brahmins. They help others, daring, long lived, large eyed, kind, famous, lovers of relatives and friends, independent, eat optimum food, and followers of their own religion. Those born in the first pada are always brave, knowledgeable; speak little excess, good speakers, handsome, capable in doing any job, endowed with sophisticated body but strong, critical in all undertakings, and winners of the hearts of people.
Vishakha Nakshatra: Spread from 20 Thula up to 3:20’ Viruchika Rasi. The lords are Sukra and Mangal, Deity is Satragni, Symbol - a leafdecked triumphal gate. Another name of this Star is Radha, a compliment to Anuradha, the birth star of Surya. From this is derived the fulfillment of action, variety of enterprise, achievement irrespective of the means employed and fearless and unscrupulous pursuit of self-interest. Real friendship hardly happens. A man born under this star works at various things but hardly concentrates on any one of them. To spread about and to dissipate is another attribute of this star. The native of this star aims at success and is pleased with it when it happens, nothing else matters. Among other attributes may be mentioned obedience to religious injunctions, quickness of the uptake, and also loss and disaster from enemies, sometimes even death or lunacy. Those born in the Vishakha star are physically impure, strong, go after others’ women, bereft of relatives and cause deference amongst friends. They are always thinking about sex, experts in the jobs of fire, brewery, ores and metallurgical operations and do not develop friendship with anybody. They are jealous, subtle, kind, forbidden love, of controlled senses, wealthy and stingy. They are intelligent, stable minded, good speakers, love relatives, children and friends. They are great people. They are candid and quarrelsome and addicted to prostitutes. They are witty, obedient, long-lived, help many, speakers of truth, short tempered, lovers of women, possess blood-shot eyes and also fish sign on the secret parts. Those born in the first pada possess a small girdle, remember help rendered by others, proud, old, born, addicted to bad jobs, troublesome to relatives and bereft of corns and wealth, wise, leaders of army, enjoyers and peaceful. Anuradha Nakshatra: Spread from 3:20’ to 16”40’ Viruchika Rasi. Lord is Mangal, Symbol - the same as that of Visakha. Visakha and Anuradha are complimentary to each other. From Anuradha is derived friendship, love, affection and other tender feature of a person’s character. From Visakha is considered the ultimate objective while from Anuradha is indicated the ‘action’. The difference
between Visakha and Anuradha is that while the Visakhanative forgets after success about benefits derived as also the persons who helped, the Anuradha-native retains soft feeling about them, he keeps his friendship intact and does not forget the benefits. The Anuradha-native’s mind is always alive and receptive to all feelings and gestures of friendship and love. He is like the sentinel always a mounting guard over emotions, but lacking the hardness or toughness of the official sentinel. Those born in the star Anuradha are interested in women, with commendable complexion of the body, bewildered, idle and weak minded. They are famous, experts in arts, and destroyers of their enemies. They are servers of king, brave, stationed in countries other than their own, handsome, and destroyers of their sins. They are truthful, respect kings, respect their mothers and are musicians. They enjoy life and go after other women. They are fit for friendship, kind hearted, of helping nature, intelligent, enjoyers and travelers. They are endowed with few children, lovers of peace, and givers of food, famous and respected by kings. They are good conversationalists,
obedient, always advisers, full of pride and forget the help rendered by others, aged looking, stingy, untruthful, bad persons and bereft of relatives, are those born in the first pada. Jyestha Nakshatra: Spread from 16:40’ up to 30: degree Vrischika Rashi, Lord is Mangal, the deity is Indra, equivalent to Lord Sun, the King of the firmament. Indra is the great lord, the mighty warrior and a hero among heroes by tradition and in the plenitude of power he reigns supreme. He is the first among courtesans. When this star is unfavorable it causes sorrow and poverty. Those born in the Jyeshtha star are fond of daily physical exercises, warriors, always respecting brahmins, famous and endowed with fine qualities. They gain fame, are bright, accompany kings, affected in mind, deeply idle, well known, and speak final. They are addicted to bad jobs, capable of undergoing difficulties, unbearable, cruel, untruthful and wealthy. They are tall and endowed with few children. They are pure and intelligent. They are religious and have a good circle of friends; they are poets and wise. They are generally dark complexioned, happy, stable and much learned. Those born in the first pada are writers, witty people, pleasant faced, sexy and attracted by women. They are liked by all, interested in discussion of the scriptures and happy. In the next issue I will meet you all with the remaining set of nine stars. I pray Lord Shiva and Vanadurga to shower their entire blessings on all of us to have a trouble free and comfortable life.
Om Shanthi Om Shanthi Om Shanthi
n Vedic astrology the planet Saturn is called SANI. In Sanskrit Sani comes from SANISCHARA, which means, “slow mover”. From Sani we get the word “shun”, which means to ignore, or lose awareness of something. Thus, Saturn represents a loss of awareness, or ignorance. This loss of awareness can also mean the diminishing awareness of the material world of manifestation. Here Saturn indicates the ascetic, rich with inner spirituality, and lost to this material plane of existence. Saturn is a malefic graha. He rules over the two signs, Capricorn and Aquarius. He is exalted in Libra, and fallen in the opposite sign of Aries. Saturn is a karaka, or indicator of longevity, misery, sorrow, old age and death, discipline, restriction, responsibility, delays, ambition, leadership and authority, humility, integrity, and wisdom born of experience. Saturn also indicates asceticism, denial, non-attachment, spirituality, hard work, organization, reality and time itself. Saturn’s most powerful place in the chart is in the 7th House and the Kendra’s, or Angles. He is a particularly beneficial planet for Taurus and Libra Ascendants. Saturn’s nature is Vata, or Airy. His gem is Blue Sapphire and all black stones and his metal is Lead. Saturn’s direction is west and his day is Saturday. He reaches full maturity at age 36. In Vedic myth Saturn is the son of the Lord Sun, born to his
shadow wife, Chaya. Saturn is lame because one of the Sun’s first wife Sanjana’s children became angered with him and struck him in the foot. Thus Saturn walks with a limp, which accounts why he is the slowest of the Grahas. The graha SANISCHARA (Saturn), also known as Manda, is generally known to affect one adversely on occasions when he occupies certain positions in one’s horoscope like Saade Sati (7 1/2 years) Ashtama Sani (Saturn in 8th house - 2 1/2 years) etc. He is the Lord of Makaram and Kumbam. He is the slowest moving planet taking 2 1/2 years in each Rasi, completing one cycle every 30 years. A prayer to this Devata, especially on Saturdays, is said to mitigate the hardships one will have to face during these periods. Sanischara bestows all benefits to the devotees who pray sincerely to him. There is on individual shrine for Lord Sani in the entire USA. Hindu Temple of Ohio is the only Temple that has an individual shrine for Lord Sani (Saturn). Those who are having problems with 71/2 Saturn (Sade Sathi) or any other problems can come to this Temple, perform prescribed rituals, get the blessings of Lord Sani and get the best spiritual salvation for all kinds of problems. To know more and more about the specified ritual for Lord Sani, please contact the Chief Priest Srividhya Raviji @ 937-344-9221.Hindu Temple of Ohio. 2222, Olive Road, Dayton, Ohio.45426.
LOVING OR FEIGNING LOVE There is this story of a person who assumed that the world is permanent. A sage advised him of the transience of the world; that all relationships are false. But the man was not willing to believe what the hermit said. The sage told him, ‘I will give you a pill, eat it and you will be physically immobile for a day as if you are dead, but you will be conscious. Then you will understand the true nature of the world by the happenings around you.The man took the pill and feigned death. When the hermit reached the man’s house, the wife sobbed inconsolably, ‘O Sage! My husband has departed at such a young age’, to which the sage replied, ‘I can revive him, provided one of you sacrifice your life for his sake’. The man’s aged parents told the hermit, ‘We need to go on pilgrimages to Kasi and Rameswaram; we cannot give up our lives before that’. The children said, ‘Our mother will take care of us; it will compensate for our father’. The hermit told the wife, ‘You seem to be in much greater grief than the others. I can save your husband if you can give up your life for him’, to which the wife replied, ‘Even when this person was alive, he was frittering away his life under the influence of drinks. I will take care of the family’. The hermit said, ‘What is this? I am asking one of you to give up your life to save him; none of you seem to care for him’ to which the entire family chorused, ‘Swami! You do not have any relations in the world, nor do you have any wants. Why do not you sacrifice your life for him? We will construct a Samadhi for you and will worship you on your anniversary’, and the hermit fled! That is how the world is. Only ten percent of the world knows to love; the remaining 90% are busy flaunting love for getting their work done. They do not care if saints suffer from stomachache; their focus is ‘if the saint accepts what I offer, then it is good for me’ and therefore they will thrust on the saints whatever they get from a cheaper store.
Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar is very fond and affectionate to children. His idea is if the children are well cultured, the entire society will be well. So, he use to tell short moral stories to the kids in all the satsangs. Here is some moral stories for children. The moral is not only for children but for all.
Please God A sage observed seven dark women walking by his hermitage every morning and return clean and beautiful. He asked them who they were. They said, ‘We are the seven seas. When people come and wash their sins in our waters, we grow dark...There is a person who, when we go and circumambulate him, the sins wash away and we regain our true nature’. Curious, he enquired about that person endowed with such powers. They replied, ‘He is Pundalika, a boy famous for his devotion towards his parents. God visited that boy’s house, and Pundalika requested Him to stand on a couple of bricks till he finished doing ‘pada pooja’ to his parents. Pleased with the boy’s devotion, God manifested in the form of Panduranga. Pundalika ranks high as one of the four prime devotees of the Lord (Prahalada, Parasara, Narada, and Pundalika). Here is a devotee who did not neglect his worldly responsibilities and God placed him on a high pedestal. The path you have chosen to lead your life is not so important, as fulfilling the responsibilities associated with that path. How well you play your part in this drama of life decides how close you become to God.
Aachi’s Samayal ( Cooking )
Palakkai Pirattal a way that you don’t smash the pieces and cook in medium fire for 5 to 7 minutes till oil separates. HOLY COOKING / SPIRITUAL ( PRASADAM) FOOD ITEMS FOR THE GODS AND TEMPLES/ MANDIRS Poorana Kozhukattai (Vinayaga Chathurthi Special) When we were kids, the first thing that will come to our mind about Vinayakar Chathurthi is the sweet poorna kuzhakattai and sundal that will be made in all houses and distributed among the neighboring houses on that day. We used to compare the softness of the kozhukattai made in different houses. Though I love poorna kuzhakattai,I used to make modagam which is more favorite to vinayagar. But this year I wanted to share this recipe with my readers. This is yet another chettinad delicacy made out of baby jack fruit which will go very well with curd rice, Rasam Rice, Chappathi or Paratha. This is also a common item in a grand chettinad vegetarian lunch. Ingredients Baby jack fruit (cut into small pieces), Potato-1, Big onion-1, Tomato-1 To Grind Coconut grated-3 table spoons, Red chilli-5, Pottukadalai-1 table spoon Cashwes-4(optional), Fennel seeds-1 teaspoon To season Cinamon-2 small pieces, Cloves-2, Cardomom-2,Fennel seeds-1 teaspoon Procedure Peel off the skin from the baby jack fruit and cut as shown. Cut the potato also in the same size. Chop the onion and tomatoes also. In a small cooker or pressure pan cook the cut jack fruit and potatoes for 1 whistle in high flame. This will get cooked fast and will get smashed if over cooked. So if you are not sure when to switch off then cook it in microwave or in a kadai in such a way that the pieces are just correctly cooked. Grind the items given in ‘To grind’ to a smooth paste. Now keep the kadai in the stove. In two tablespoons of oil season the curry with the items given in ‘To season’. Add the onions and tomatoes and saute nicely till oil separates. Now add the grinded masal and salt needed and sauté till it gets cooked well and oil separates in medium fire. Add ¼ cup of water to this and put the cooked baby jack fruit and potato pieces. Mix everything nicely in such Karma 8 Ingredients Raw rice -200 gms (1 uzhakku) (Here we get mavu pacharisi),Powdered jaggery-1/2 cup,grated coconut-1/2 cup,Cardomom-2,Ghee -2 teaspoon,Gingelly oil-1 tablespoon Method Soak the rice for an hour. Grind it well in a mixie. The batter can be watery. After grinding add 1/4 teaspoon salt and teaspoon gingelly oil into the batter. The batter can be like dosa batter. Keep a kadai in the stove. Boil 3/4 cup water and pour the ground batter into the water and stir nicely. The batter will turn like a ball in a minute or two. Switch off the stove. Divide the batter into three portions and knead it into a smooth ball. Make it into a single ball and cover it with a wet tissue or cloth. Now for the coconut poornam , Keep the kadai in the stove.pour 1/4 cup water. Add the jaggery into the water. Once the jaggerry dissolves, strain the jaggerry using a filter to remove impurities. Wash the kadai and pour back the jaggerry and boil till it turns sticky. In medium fire it can be boiled for 3 to 4 minutes. Now add the coconut, ghee and the powdered cardamom and stir well
till there is not much water content. Don’t keep the coconut for a long tome in the stove. Switch off with in two minutes else the coconut will get roasted. Now the poornam is ready. Now we have to make the kozhukattai and keep the poornam inside. In Tamilnadu lot of ready made achu (moulds) is available. But if you don’t have achu also no problem. The batter will listen to your needs. Make small balls. Spread it into flat thin circles or make small kinnams. Little bit gingili oil can also be used for spreading. Youngsters today will do a better work of making different shapes than us. Keep the poornam inside and cover nicely. If you make the first type stick the ends nicely. Steam the kozhukattai in idly pot or stand. Remember you have to put a cloth or tissue on the idly plate before steaming else the steam from below will change the color of the kozhukattai. Chakkarai pongal or Sarkkarai pongal (sweet Rice) This Rice is the queen of pongal. The idea of making this pongal on the first day of Thai month, was to make a sweet first out of the newly harvested rice. Now time has changed. Agriculture is no more the main occupation of many. But we continue to celebrate the function with some raw rice we get in the store. To our future generations we should try to explain the importance of this function to the farmer and the agriculturists In those days pongal was kept outside the house in the open for sun God. Now in our system of living we can’t do that and we have ended up in making pongal in the pressure cooker in our kitchen. Till today, I have managed to make pongal on the pongal day in the pongal panai in the dining room keeping the gas stove down .But in this method there is a risk of pongal getting burnt if we are not careful. So I advice the younger generation to make it in the cooker itself which is a safe and sure method Ingredients Raw rice-1 cup,Grated jaggerry-1 cup, Broken green gramhandful (pasiparuppu) Ghee 3 table spoons, Cashews-10, Raisins-handful, Powdered cardamom-1,teaspoon Procedure Wash the rice and pasiparuppu and cook in the pressure cooker
with 3 cups of water in medium fire for 10 minutes. Meantime dissolve the jaggerry in a cup of water in the stove. Strain it using a stainless steel strainer .Keep it back in the stove and bring the mixture to a boil for 2 minutes. After the pressure goes open the cooker. Smash the rice nicely with a flat ladle. Slowly pour the jaggerry water into the cooker mixing well .Switch on the stove now and in low fire mix everything nicely. Switch off the stove in 2 minutes. Remember the pongal will solidify once it cools. If you want you can add little milk also instead of water while cooking rice. In a small frying pan, in a tablespoon of ghee fry the cashews after breaking it into small pieces in low fire. Add this also into the cooker. Fry the raisins also and along with that ghee add everything into the pongal. Add the cardamom powder and a tablespoon of ghee and mix well. Your pongal is ready. While serving you can use the remaining 1 tablespoon of ghee. Modagam This is the favorite sweet of Lord Ganesha or Pillayar as we call in Tamil. So this is commonly made in all houses in Tamilnadu during Vinayaga Chathurthi. This is different from Poorna Kuzhakkattai which is a sweet stuffed one. Modagam is made with broken rice like Rava and Jaggerry. One of my readers is urgently in need of this recipe, so no more time for stories. Ingredients Rice (broken like Rava)-2 cups,Jaggerry-2 cups,Water-6 cups (3 cups of water for 1 cup rice),Grated coconut-1/4 cup,Ghee-3 tablespoons Broken Green gram-1/4 cup (pasiparuppu), Cardomom-4 (powder it along with a teaspoon of sugar in the mixie) Procedure Wash the rice. Spread it under the fan for an hour in newspaper till the rice gets dried. Those who can’t dry can keep it in microwave for a minute. Put it in the mixie and powder it like rava. For making the modagam, first roast the rava in a tablespoon of ghee for 2 minutes. In a kadai pour 6 cups of water. Add the jaggerry. When the jaggerry water boils strain it using a steel strainer to remove the impurities. After straining pour back the jaggerry water into the kadai and when the water starts boiling add the broken rice and the green gram. Mix well. Add a table
spoon of ghee. Keep the flame very low. Close the kadai. The rice will get cooked in 10 minutes. Open the kadai now and then mix. Once the rice appears to be cooked, add the grated coconut, powdered cardamom and one more table spoon of ghee. Switch of the stove. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes. Make small balls and steam it in idly pan for 8 minutes. Ma Vilakku or Mavu Vilakku (Rice flour Deepam) In Tamilnadu (I am not sure about other states), there is a practice of making Rice dough with jaggery and lighting a deepam for our favorite God or Goddesses on auspicious days like AAdi Velli , Purattasi Sani etc. In olden days sweet was a very rare item at home and children used to wait for this hand grinded dough (iditha maavu). Now those days have gone and making rice flour has become a difficult task. For the sake of youngsters who have seen their parents keeping maa vilakku regularly and want to continue it, here is the recipe. Ingredients Raw Rice (medium quality) – 200 gms (1 azhakku) Jaggery-200 gms (powdered 1 cup) while buying go for little bit white colored jiggery Cardomom-3 Ghee-2 table spoons Procedure Wash the rice nicely and soak for just 10 minutes. Now strain it and spread it on a newspaper under the fan. Let this dry for just
10 minutes (If it is dried more, you can’t make the flour. Now put all the rice in the big jar of the mixie and grind at a stretch for 2 minutes. Sieve the rice with the help of a medium holed sieve. Grind again till everything is done. Powder the jaggery nicely with a stone or slice it with the help of a knife. The next part is making the dough. Powder the cardamom along with a teaspoon of sugar in the small jar and take the powder alone. Add it to the rice flour. Slowly add the jiggery to the flour kept in a flat vessel and mix it with your hand. Initially you will feel Oh how am I going to make the dough. Don’t worry. Surely dough will turn perfect. If you find it difficult, keep aside the vessel closed for 5 minutes. Now the dough will be little loose. Add a teaspoon of Ghee and mix again till your dough is perfect. Excess jaggery will make the dough watery. In that case extra flour has to be added. I am sure you will not be short of jaggery if this measurement is followed. Don’t transfer it into the vessel in which you light deepam. Put it in a Zip lock bag and keep it in the vessel in which you want to light the deepam and take to the temple. Just before lighting transfer it into the vessel. Make the dough a round ball and keep inside the vessel. Press the centre of the dough with your thumb. Inside that hole pour half spoon ghee and light the lamp keeping the thread in the middle, Press one end of the thread inside the dough nicely so that the thread stands erect. Now light the lamp and get the blessings of Soolini Ma, and Vana Durga of Hindu Temple of Ohio.
ver the past issues we have discussed a few points about Spirituality as explained in the Upanishads, the BhagavadGita, and the Ramayana. In this issue we will discuss the Spirituality found in Mahabharata. I whole heartedly thank the Almighty and my Swamiji for blessing me with more opportunities to express my ideas on Spirituality. The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramayana. The epic is part of the Hindu Itihasa, and forms an important part of Hindu Philosophy. It is of immense importance to the culture of the Indian Subcontinent, and is a major text in Hinduism. Its discussion of the human goals: Dharma (duty), Artha (purpose), Kama (pleasure), and Moksha (liberation), takes place in a longstanding tradition, attempting to explain the relationship of the individual to society, the world and the workings of Karma. With more than 74,000 verses the Mahabharata is one of the longest epic poems in the world. It is about four times the size of the Ramayana. Including the Harivamsa, the Mahabharata has a total length of more than 90,000 verses. Besides its epic narrative of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kauravas and the Pandavas, the Mahabharata contains much philosophical and devotional material, such as the Shrimad Bhagavad-Gita, or a discussion of the four “goals of life,” (purusharthas). The later are enumerated as Dharma (right action), Artha (purpose), Kama (pleasure), and Moksha (liberation). This great epic was dictated to Lord Ganesha by the great
sage Veda Vyasa. Since Lord Ganesha cannot find the proper writing materials, he broke one of his tusks and wrote the epic on the hill called Meru. Among the principal works and stories that are a part of the Mahabharata, the following are very famous. This book is divided into eighteen “parvas” or books. The parvas are again subdivided into chapters. The last two chapters are called the Harivamsa and it tells about the life and death of Lord Krishna. Here I will describe the eighteen books. 1. Adi Parva The Book of the Beginning (The word “adi” means first) explains how the Mahabharata came to be narrated by Sauti to the assembled rishis at Naimisharanya. Vaishampayana recited the Mahabharata at the Sarpayaga, which was conducted by Janamejaya. (Vaishampayana is the other name of sage Veda Vyasa.) The history of the Bharata race is told in detail, and the book also traces history of the Bhrigu race - The birth and early life of the Kuru princes.
the river Saraswati and the mace fight between Bheema and Duryodhana, which ends the war when Bheema kills Duryodhana by smashing him on the thighs with a mace. 10. Sauptika Parva (The Book of the Sleeping Warriors) Ashvattama, Kripa and Kritavarma kill the remaining Pandava army in their sleep. Only seven warriors remain on the Pandava side and three on the Kaurava side. 11. Stri Parva (The Book of the Women) Here, Gandhari, Kunti and the women (stri) of the Kurus and the Pandavas lament their dead. 12. Shanti Parva (“Shanti” means peace) The Book of Peace covers the crowning of Yudhisthira as king of Hastinapura, and the instructions from Bhishma for the newly anointed king on society, economics, and politics. This is the longest book of the Mahabharata. 13. Anushasana Parva The Book of the Instructions are the final instructions from Bhishma (“anushasana” means rules and regulations). 14. Ashvamedhika Parva The Book of the Horse Sacrifice is the royal ceremony of the Ashvamedha (Horse Sacrifice) conducted by Yudhisthira. Also covered is the world conquest by Arjuna. And the Anugita (supplementary to Srimad Bhagavad-Gita) is told by Krishna to Arjuna. 15. Ashramavasika Parva (The Book of the Hermitage) In this book we have the eventual deaths of Dhritarashtra, Gandhari, and Kunti in a forest fire when they are living in a hermitage in the Himalayas. Vidura predeceases them and Sanjaya on Dhritarashtra’s bidding goes to live in the higher Himalayas. 16. Mausala Parva The Book of the Clubs describes the infighting between the Yadavas with maces (mausala) and the eventual destruction of theYadavas. 17. Mahaprasthanika Parva (The Book of the Great Journey) This is the great journey of Yudhisthira and his brothers across the whole country and finally their ascent of the great Himalayas where each Pandava falls except for Yudhisthira. 18. Svargarohana Parva (The Book of the Ascent to Heaven) Here is Yudhisthira’s final test, and the return of the Pandavas to the spiritual world (svarga). Out of these eighteen great books, the morality to be adopted by an individual is mostly taught. The rules and regulations told in these great books are applicable from the topmost to the bottommost in society. By adopting the rules, regulations, and morality of the Mahabharata, one can become a practical example to the entire world. The intellectual giants like Bishma, Drona, Yudishtira, and Lord Krishna showed the path that leads to a peaceful and spiritual life. They are the important rules and practical lessons for leading a calm, peaceful, and brave, spiritual life.
2. Sabha Parva The Book of the Assembly Hall describes Maya Danava erecting the palace and court (sabha), at Indraprastha, the life at the court, Yudhishthira’s Rajasuya Yajna, the game of dice, and the eventual exile of the Pandavas. 3. Vana Parva (also Aranyaka-parva) The Book of the Forest covers the twelve years of exile in the forest (aranya). 4. Virata Parva The Book of Virata recounts the year in incognito spent at the court of Virata. 5. Udyoga Parva The Book of the Effort tells of the preparations for war and the efforts to bring about peace between the Kurus and the Pandavas which eventually fail (“udyoga” means effort or work). 6. Bhishma Parva The Book of Bhishma goes over the first part of the great battle, with Bhishma as the commander for the Kauravas and his fall on a bed of arrows. 7. Drona Parva In the Book of Drona, the battle continues, with Drona as commander. This is the major book of the war. Most of the great warriors on both sides are dead by the end of this book. 8. Karna Parva In the Book of Karna, the battle is narrated again, now with Karna as the commander. 9. Shalya Parva, means “The Book of Shalya.” Here is the description of the last day of battle, with Shalya as commander. Told in detail, is the pilgrimage of Balarama to the fords of
In Book 6 (Bhishma Parva) of The Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna advises and teaches Arjuna when he is riddled with doubt. These teachings are not only meant for Arjuna but for one and all in the universe. The teachings match from the day of epics until today. It will also match well for the future also. As a great epic, the Mahabharata has put forth an enormous effort to cultivate spirituality and moralities into the regular lives of human beings. There is no spiritual partiality in the human race from emperor to the last citizen. The core story of the work is that of a dynastic struggle for the throne of Hastinapura, the kingdom ruled by the Kuru clan. The two collateral branches of the family that participate in the struggle are the Kaurava and the Pandava. Although the Kaurava is the senior branch of the family, Duryodhana, the eldest Kaurava, is younger than Yudhisthira, the eldest Pandava. Both Duryodhana and Yudhisthira claim to the first in line to inherit the throne. The struggle culminates in the great battle of Kurukshetra, in which the Pandavas are ultimately victorious. The battle produces complex conflicts of kinship and friendship, instances of family loyalty and duty taking precedence over what is right, as well as the converse. The Mahabharata itself ends with the death of Lord Krishna, and the subsequent end of his dynasty, and ascent of the Pandava brothers to heaven. It also marks the beginning of the Hindu age of Kali (Kali Yuga), the fourth and final age of mankind, where the great values and noble ideas have crumbled, and man is heading toward the complete dissolution of right action, morality and virtue. By reading and understanding the Mahabharata one can easily understand what humanity is and what all the essentialities of humanity are. By being the best human the Yudishtira has shown himself to be the best example for human beings. Even though he was hurt in many ways, he never backed away from his Dharma. That’s why he is remembered as Dharmaputra. He stands as an example of Dharma. He never cared for anything other than Dharma. The next is Bheema. He stands as an example for his dedicated devotion. For wherever he was, he used to worship Lord Shiva. He got a lot of boons from Lord Shiva. And even though he got lot of boons from Lord Shiva, he never misused them. The next is Arjuna. He had the closest relationship with Lord Krishna. Even though he had Lord Krishna’s closest relationship, he never misused it either. The next celebrity in the epic is Karna. He is the practical example of thankfulness and friendship. He even sacrificed his life for the sake of friendship and thankfulness. Just like the aforesaid, there are lots of examples in the entire epic. These are all on the positive side. The epic has plenty of examples on the negative sides as well. These examples are Duriyodana, Duchathana, Sakuni, and many more people. By looking at these people one can clearly understand how one should not behave in society. Out of these eighteen books the 1st to 5th explain the complete life of the prince, princess, kings and queens. The 6th book to 11th book talks about the battle. The 12th book tells about the peace. The book number 13 has the standard rules and regulations
formulated by the greatest scholar Bishma. By following these rules and regulations one can set a practical example to society, and one can be the best spiritual human being possible. The same book contains the “Vishnu Sahasranamam” (one thousand eight names of Lord Mahavishnu). Book 14 tells the duties of an emperor or a king. It also details the procedure of the greatest ritual, called Ashvamedha, conducted by Yudishtira. Book 15 details about the retired life of Drutarashtra and his wife. It also describes the last minutes of Drutharashtra, his wife, and Padava’s mother Kunti. Book 16 tells about the war between the Yadhavas. It is kind of a family feud. Because of this group infighting the Yadhava dynasty itself was ruined. Book 17 explains the journey of Pandavas across the whole country and it contains discussions of Yudishtira with the god of Dharma. It is considered one of the most important parts of the great epic. This section tells about the basic morality to be followed by normal mortal mankind. Book 18 is the ending of the great epic. It explains the results of Yudishtira and tells about the return of Pandavas to the spiritual world. One cannot become great by simply reading through the books of spirituality. However, if everybody tries to follow the basic moralities taught in the holy books; then, society will become great. There will be no struggles at all. The entire universe will be a “universe of peace.” As per the sayings of Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar, we all can have a very comfortable living. I thank the Almighty and Swamiji for giving me this opportunity to share my thoughts on spirituality. I pray that they continue to bless me with more and more chances to share my thoughts on spirituality. Om Shanti.

excuse that it would be difficult to get the monkey across the river. But his wife was determined to eat the monkey’s flesh. So she thought of a plan. One day, she pretended to be very ill and told the crocodile that the doctor said that she would only recover if she ate a monkey’s heart. If her husband wanted to save her life, he must bring her his friend’s heart. The crocodile was aghast. He was in a dilemma. On the one hand, he loved his friend. On the other, he could not possibly let his wife die. The crocodile’s wife threatened him saying that if he did not get her the monkey’s heart, she would surely die. So the crocodile went to the rose apple tree and invited the monkey to come home to meet his wife. He told the monkey that he could ride across the river on the crocodile’s back. The monkey happily agreed. As they reached the middle of the river, the crocodile began to sink. The frightened monkey asked him why he was doing that. The crocodile explained that he would have to kill the monkey to save his wife’s life. The clever monkey told him that he would gladly give up his heart to save the life of the crocodile’s wife, but he had left his heart behind in the rose apple tree. He asked the crocodile to make haste and turn back so that the monkey could go get his heart from the apple tree. The silly crocodile quickly swam back to the rose apple tree. The monkey scampered up the tree to safety. He told the crocodile to tell his wicked wife that she had married the biggest fool in the world. The Stork and the Crab Once upon a time, there was a stork that caught the fish in a particular tank. The stork always had a full meal. As the years went by, the stork grew older and weaker. His ability to catch fish diminished. At times he would even starve. He knew he had to do something to survive. One day he stood by the side of the tank with a very forlorn look on his face. The frogs, fish and crabs wondered why he was not trying to catch any food. A big crab asked him what the matter was. The stork answered that he was sad because all the fish in
The Monkey and the Crocodile Once upon a time, a clever monkey lived in a tree that bore juicy, red rose apples. He was very happy. One fine day, a crocodile swam up to that tree and told the monkey that he had traveled a long distance and was in search of food as he was very hungry. The kind monkey offered him a few rose apples. The crocodile enjoyed them very much and asked the monkey whether he could come again for some more fruit. The generous monkey happily agreed. The crocodile returned the next day. And the next. And the next one after that. Soon the two became very good friends. They discussed their lives, their friends and family, like all friends do. The crocodile told the monkey that he had a wife and that they lived on the other side of the river. So the kind monkey offered him some extra rose apples to take home to his wife. The crocodile’s wife loved the rose apples and made her husband promise to get her some every day. Meanwhile, the friendship between the monkey and the crocodile deepened as they spent more and more time together. The crocodile’s wife started getting jealous. She wanted to put an end to this friendship. So she pretended that she could not believe that her husband could be friends with a monkey. Her husband tried to convince her that he and the monkey shared a true friendship. The crocodile’s wife thought to herself that if the monkey lived on a diet of rose monkeys, his flesh would be very sweet. So she asked the crocodile to invite the monkey to their house. The crocodile was not happy about this. He tried to make the
the tank were going to die and he would have to starve. He said that he had heard that people were going to fill the tank with mud and grow crops over it. The fish were very worried and asked the stork to help them. The stork offered to take all of them to a bigger tank some distance away. But he said that he needed to rest between trips because of his age. He would only be able to carry a few fish at a time. The stork took a beakful of fish on his first trip. He flew to a big rock and had a good meal. He rested awhile, and when he was hungry again, he took a second trip. In this manner, he took a trip each time that he was hungry. The big crab in the tank also wanted to save himself and he requested the stork to take him too. The stork thought it was a good idea to try a new dish. He agreed to take the crab on his next trip. After the stork flew up with him, the crab looked down to see what his new surrounding would be like. All he could see was dry land. He questioned the stork about this. The stork laughed wickedly and pointed to the rock below where the crab saw a heap of fish bones. The crab realized that he was to be the stork’s next meal. So the crab dug his claws into the stork’s neck and would not let go till the stork fell to the ground. The crab then cut off the stork’s head and returned home to show it to all the other fish and share the story of his adventure. Pundit Ji Sevaram One day a Brahmin by the name of Sevaram asked Birbal for help. He said that his forefathers were great Sanskrit scholars and that people used to respectfully refer to them as Panditji. He said that he had no money nor need for wealth; he was content living a simple life. But he had just one wish. He wished people would refer to him as Panditji too. He asked Birbal how he could achieve this. Birbal said that the task was fairly simple. If the Brahmin followed his advice word for word, this task could be achieved. Birbal advised the Brahmin to shout at anyone who would call him Panditji from now on. Now the children who lived on the same street as the Brahmin did not like him since he scolded them often. They were just waiting for an opportunity to get back at him. Birbal told the children that the Brahmin would get really irritated if they would start calling him Panditji. The children started calling him Panditji and the Brahmin as advised by Birbal started shouting at them. The children spread the word to all the other children in the neighborhood that Sevaram hated being called Panditji, so they in turn all started calling him Panditji. After a while, Sevaram got tired of scolding them but everyone already was used to call him Panditji. Hence the game was over but the name stuck.
The Three Questions King Akbar was very fond of Birbal. This made a certain courtier very jealous. Now this courtier always wanted to be chief minister, but this was not possible as Birbal filled that position. One day Akbar praised Birbal in front of the courtier. This made the courtier very angry and he said that the king
praised Birbal unjustly and if Birbal could answer three of his questions, he would accept the fact that Birbal was intelligent. Akbar always wanted to test Birbals wit readily agreed. The three questions were 1. How many stars are there in the sky? 2. Where is the centre of the Earth? 3. How many men and how many women are there in the world? Immediately Akbar asked Birbal the three questions and informed him that if he could not answer them, he would have to resign as chief minister. To answer the first question, Birbal brought a hairy sheep and said there are as many stars in the sky as there is hair on the sheep’s body. My friend the courtier is welcome to count them if he likes. To answer the second question, Birbal drew a couple of lines on the floor and bore an iron rod in it and said, this is the centre of the Earth, the courtier may measure it himself if he has any doubts. In answer to the third question, Birbal said Counting the exact number of men and women in the world would be a problem as there are some specimens like our courtier friend here who cannot easily be classified as either. Therefore if all people like him are killed, then and only then can one count the exact number. The Golden Goose Once upon a time there lived a queen in the city of Benaras. Her name was Khema and she was the wife of King Bahuputraka, which means ‘father of many sons’. One night, the Queen had a dream of a beautiful golden goose that spoke with great wisdom, almost as if he was a sage. She told her husband that Karma 21
she desperately wanted to see a bird just like the one that she had seen in her dream. So the King asked his ministers to find out all that they could about a bird such as this. He was told that such a bird did exist but was extremely rare and difficult to find. They advised him to build a beautiful lake on the outskirts of Benaras so that he may attract such rare and lovely creatures to reside there. In this way the queen might have her wish. Towards the north, on Mount Cittakuta, there lived about ninety thousand wild geese headed by a beautiful golden goose called King Dhatarattha. He got to hear of this exquisite lake that was surrounded by flowers and trees and had lovely water lilies and lotuses floating on the surface. The king had named this lake after his wife Khema and had invited all the birds to come and live on it, promising that none of them would ever be harmed. Corn was scattered on a daily basis in order to attract the birds. So a couple of geese went up to their King and told him that they were quite tired of living up on the mountains and would like to see this wonderful lake where they had been promised food and protection. The king agreed to their request and took the whole flock down south towards Benaras. Meanwhile, at the lake the King had placed hunters all around in order to capture any golden goose that happened to pass by. So the next morning when the headhunter saw this flock of geese approaching he was very excited to see their golden leader. He immediately went about setting up a snare amongst the water lilies and lotuses, as he knew that the leader would definitely be the first to alight. The whole flock came flying down in one mighty swoop and as expected it was the King’s foot that touched the water first. He was ensnared and could not escape. Seeing this the other geese flew into a panic and honked in distress. But none had the courage to try to free their king and so flew back to Mount Cittacuta for safety. All except one. He was the chief captain, Sumukha. His King entreated him to fly to safety too, as he would surely be captured if he stayed by his side. But Sumukha replied that he would never desert his master in the face of danger and would either try to save him or die by his side. At this point the head huntsman approached and as Sumukha saw him he decided to appeal to his compassion. The hunter asked the King how come he had not noticed the trap that was set. The golden goose replied that when one’s time was up it was no use to struggle against what was fated and one must just accept it. The huntsman was very impressed with his grace and wisdom. He then turned to Sumukha and asked why he had not fled with the other birds even though he was free to do so. Sumukha answered that this was his King, best friend and master and that he could never desert him even at the cost of his own life. Karma 22
Hearing this the hunter realized that these were a couple of rare birds of great nobility. And were he to harm them, the gods would certainly punish him. Besides, he did not much care for his own King’s reward and decided to do the right thing and set them free. He told Sumukha that as he was ready to die for his King he would set them both free to fly wherever they may. He then set loose the foot of the golden goose and washed the wound clean. And when he made an attempt to fix the dislocated muscle “lo behold”.. the foot was miraculously whole again as if it had never been hurt. Sumukha greatly blessed the hunter for his act of compassion and his King asked whether he had set the trap for himself or at someone else’s command. The hunter answered that he had done it on the orders of his own King. He then went on to narrate to them the whole story about the queen’s dream and her wish to see this rare golden goose. On hearing this, the golden goose decided to go and meet the monarch, as he knew that the hunter would receive his reward. He had also heard about the wisdom and goodness of King Bahuputakka and thought that if he appeared out of his own free will, the monarch might allow him and his flock to come visit the lake. He therefore asked the hunter to take him to his King. The hunter advised him against it because he was worried that his monarch might imprison these two lovely creatures. But the golden goose explained that just as they had been able to soften a hunter’s heart it should not be too difficult to do the same to a great and noble King. He asked him to do his duty and leave the rest to him. So the hunter set out to go to the palace accompanied by these two noble, gorgeous creatures. Needless to say that the King and Queen were absolutely delighted to see these two beautiful birds. The King set them on a golden perch and fed them himself, with honey, grain and sweetened milk. Then he spent the whole night discussing kingship and all its duties with this King of Geese. The golden goose did his best to offer good advice and encouragement in accordance with his wisdom. In the morning he thanked the King and Queen for their hospitality and friendship and flew back to his flock accompanied by his faithful friend and chief captain Sumukha.

Our Vedic system recognizes 27 Nakshatra or constellation. (Sometimes 28, if we include Abhijit Nakshatra which is an integral part of Ultarashada). The Nakshatra system is unique to the Vedic system and gives it much higher level of accuracy. It is believed that the Nakshatra system was prevalent before the sign system was even recognized. Each planet, house, sensitive point in zodiac is influenced by the Nakshatra it occupies at a particular time. We are describing the
results of placement of Moon in each Nakshatra (since this is the most important tool in Vedic astrology). The results of your Moon in the Nakshatra (since this is the most important tool in vedic astrology).Your birth Nakshatra (Janma Nakshatra) determines your thinking patter, nature as well as basic destiny. It also determines the instincts as well as the subconscious aspects of the personality
Various House in the Atharava Vedic Astrogy According to older Hindu texts, the words signs and houses fall on each other, but the count of the signs is always made from Aries which is the first sign. If we say a planet is in the first sign, it means that he is in Aries. If we say, it is in the fifth sign, it will be in Leo. If we say, it is in the twelfth sign, it will be in Pisces because Pisces is the last and the twelfth sign. We must remember that when referring to a sign we always count Aries as the first and then proceed in the regular order of the signs. But a house begins from the ascendant. We must first know which is the sign ascending at the particular moment at a particular place. The Earth is globular. It is like a globe with the sky all around. There is no part of the sky which is not to the east of any locality of the Earth. We can explain this further by giving a practical example. The Sun always appears to be somewhere on the ecliptic. In fact, he is not on the ecliptic; it is the Earth which is on the ecliptic and as viewed from the Earth, the Sun appears to be in line with some place on the ecliptic. Now this Sun at any time appears in the east, in some part or the other of the Earth. So we may state that as the zodiac is a circular ring in the skies, though in fact it is elliptic, going all round, some part of the ring, i.e., the zodiac is on the eastern horizon somewhere. Now suppose that at a particular time the sign Leo is rising at the eastern horizon. Then Leo will constitute the first house Virgo Karma 25
generally he is the eldest brother; prosperity is not constant; he himself is fickle in temperament but proves a good servant.

Now suppose that the Sun is n Aquarius. So we say the Sun is in the seventh house or setting in the western horizon. If suppose Scorpio was rising at New Delhi. Then Scorpio will be the first house, Sagittarius the second house. Capricorn the third house and so on; and the Sun being in Aquarius he will be in the fourth house. The following signs being in opposition at 180º, to each other are called opposition signs: •Aries is in opposition to Libra and Libra to Aries •Taurus is in opposition to Scorpio and Scorpio to Taurus •Gemini is in opposition to Sagittarius and Sagittarius to Gemini •Cancer is in opposition to Capricorn and Capricorn to Cancer •Leo is in opposition to Aquarius and Aquarius in Leo •Virgo is in opposition to Pisces and Pisces to Virgo So we must remember that the sign rising to the east at a particular time depends upon the time, date, month, year and the longitude and latitude of the place. The latitude is very important because the duration of a sign rising differs from latitude to latitude.

Malefic and benefic: Planets are termed natural benefic and natural malefic. Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and increasing Moon are natural benefic planets; Saturn, Mars, decreasing Moon, Raaghu and Kethu are natural malefic planets. If Mercury joins a natural malefic, he does not remain auspicious. As regards the Moon, she is auspicious from 10th day of dark fortnight through the 5th day of bright fortnight. Apart from the above, planets are classified as favorable and adverse based on births under the 12 different ascendants. These are
narrated below: Aries: Benefic planets are Jupiter and the Sun. Malefic planets are Saturn, Mercury and Venus. Venus is the prime killer.

different sectors in the community. Many famous Hindu Temples are very successful in a peaceful way; however, the greediness, ego, gossip, evilness sometimes cause some individuals to get into wrong doings. The painful thing to understand is that a local temple in the USA, Hindu Temple of Atlanta Inc., in Riverdale, Georgia, has come into the limelight for its Trustees’ serious and notorious activities. A Federal lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia on 8th September 2010 alleging very serious violations including civil rights violations, conspiracy, and RICO (Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization).This makes the Complaint very interesting reading. Gwinnett County, Georgia, is one of the richest counties in the state of Georgia, and the Hindu Temple of Atlanta is approximately an hour drive south from Gwinnett County. Hindu Temple of Atlanta has approximately 50 trustees who are mega millionaires and most of them are physicians. Under belief and information the Temple Board always consists of only one group of Indian American community who speak the Indian dialogue Telugu. As reported by lot of local Indian Americans, the Temple has a lot of politics and internal fights about who is big and who is rich in the Temple. In the year 2006 another Hindu Temple was started, The Hindu Temple of Georgia, in a peaceful way without any group politics or fights. This peaceful and cooperative character attracted the majority of the Indian American community to this new temple.
Hindu Temple and Gwinnett Police of Georgia are sued for $ 56 Million Plus Dayton, Ohio: The Nation’s largest RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) violation and conspiracy lawsuit, civil rights violation against Gwinnett County Police Department and Hindu Temple of Atlanta was filed in the federal court in Georgia on September 08, 2010. The Plaintiffs claim a minimum of $ 56 million as damages, and RICO violations normally yield 3 times the damage, which could bring the Plaintiffs a total award of more than $200 Million. This RICO and conspiracy lawsuit is the biggest lawsuit filed against a Hindu Temple and a Police Department in the whole nation. Hindu Indian Americans have achieved many good things, good name, fame and they are pioneers in making charitable
Sheriff Butch Conway
Valmikinathan P. Raghunathan
growth, name, fame literally bothered Hindu Temple of Atlanta and the rich millionaire trustees. The recent lawsuit filed in the federal court alleges that the Hindu Temple of Atlanta started a conspiracy to destroy Hindu Temple of Georgia. The lawsuit also alleges a small group of conspirators, for their own material benefits conspired each other and, in the latter stages, a county police officer Investigator Paul Cwalina joined with the conspirators’ team to destroy the Hindu Temple of Georgia. The regular readers of our magazine are fully aware that the large number of millionaire trustees of Hindu Temple of Atlanta who minted money through their medical profession serving as a Trustees of the Temple are still facing their criminal charges in India and they have sort an injunction order regarding their criminal case in the Indian High Court, Chennai India. A local Georgia magazine, Khabar, and a few of its owners are also facing criminal charges in India now. Some local Indian American folks reported to our reporter that lot of money have been
funneled to destroy the Hindu Temple of Georgia and their priests / pundits. The list of the conspiracy activity as reported in the Lawsuit is a mind boggling one. The lawsuit alleges that a Hindu Temple of Atlanta member / follower, Valmikinathan P. Raghunathan had been instituted as a team leader to achieve the goal (“Destroy Hindu Temple of Georgia”). He is believed to be the former Trustee of the local very small Tamil Sangam. However, some local Tamil speaking Indian Americans reported that the association / sangam where which Valmikinathan P. Raghunathan held a Trustee position was “Sangam for Sandai” ( Sandai means Fight ). He goes by the name Valmiki and is believed to be in his mid 50’s, and started an IT corporation named Blue Shift India Private Limited in Chennai and Atlanta, Georgia. The corporation has been operating at a loss for a long time as per the information we gathered. The lawsuit alleges that he has started terrorist threats, bomb blasts threats to destroy the Hindu Temple of Georgia and it’s the Priests of the Temple. Investigator Paul Cwalina from the Gwinnett County
Police Department investigated this case and gave a false police statement to his own Police Department to acquit Valmiki out of the alleged Terrorist Bomb Threat. The lawsuit identifies three local Indian Americans as the primary organizers of the conspiracy. First one is Valmiki, second one is his brother Sundaram Raghunathan who is believed to be in his mid 60s, and the third one is Chandramohan Loganathan, who under belief and information is the owner of Kumon Math Tuition Center in Kennesaw, Georgia. He is the husband of Ananthi Palamuthu; who goes by the name as Ana Palamuthu. Another interesting character is Dr. Selvi Rengasamy Vasudevan, a pediatrician from New Jersey, who speaks south Indian dialogue Tamil, and who is the sister of Ananthi Palamuthu. The lawsuit alleges the three men, Dr. Selvi Rengasamy Vasudevan, and another two conspirators committed many serious criminal and civil wrong doings. Valmiki recently arrested by the Fulton County police in Georgia for a sexual battery.
Dr. Ravi Sarma
The victim alleges that Valmiki committed a sexual assault and battery on her, the wife of a Holy Priest. An eye witness of the incident was Mr. Jesse W. Hill, who has been in law practice for more than 37 years in Georgia. He testified in the Magistrate Court that the sexual battery happened in front of his eyes in the United States courthouse, and that Valmiki held the victim’s shoulder and pumped on her buttocks with his sexual organ numerous times; now he is waiting for his criminal trial. Valmiki, his brothers Sundaram, Chandramohan Loganathan have their pending arrest warrants in India, too, and they are badly wanted by Indian Police Department now. The Conspiracy and the bad side of this story does not stop here. Yes! These people have also beaten physically Hindu Priests who were taken to the Hospital by Ambulance. Its very interesting to note some exhibits attached to the lawsuit which clearly prove without any doubt even to a layman in this nation about the clear conspiracy, and the very bad action of a local police cop who completely misused his police powers repeatedly. Local Sheriff R.L. “Butch” Conway also helped these conspirators by using the police powers even to dismiss the arrest warrant issued in Gwinnett County and pending criminal charges in another county. The RICO lawsuit is a very serious federal lawsuit which is going to demand the whole fortune of these people and if the Plaintiff win the lawsuit, they are expected to be awarded with more than 180 million dollars. Normally in a lawsuit filed by a Plaintiff lot of things will
be subjective, and many things would be one person’s word against other persons. However, in this lawsuit Plaintiffs contend that everything is objective and the paper work, email, recorded conversations from the Defendants’ side completely establish the conspiracy, civil rights violation to any normal minded person in the whole nation. Sometimes greediness make the human to commit extreme wrongdoings, breaking all the ethics in their life, and this particular lawsuit fits that pattern 100% . A rumor says that there is a chance of adding few more defendants in this lawsuit, like one of the richest mall owners in Norcross, GA who has a God’s name, an appointed Trustee of a Bankruptcy case in the Northern District of Georgia, a local cable TV reporter, and the owner of a small Indian American magazine which is published locally. One of the nation’s most famous civil rights and RICO lawyers from Ohio, Mr. John Scaccia, and veteran Atlanta lawyer Mr. Jesse W. Hill are representing the Plaintiffs. This lawsuit will definitely give an end for the internal politics, group fights in lot of Indian Hindu Temples in this country. Few of the alleged conspirators in the lawsuit, their business partners are also facing lot of problems in India. One of the business partners Muthukrishnan Veeriah, a Tamil speaking Indian is now under a serious criminal investigation by the CBCID (Crime Branch Investigation Department) which is the specialized wing in Tamil Nadu Police, India who were taken into the custody recently who are the alleged conspirators in India and now they may be imprisoned at any time in India. Those people are under investigation for Fraud, Cheating, Forgery, Money Laundering, Conspiracy, and
Cyber Crime. The Indian partners of the three main Indian American Defendants in this new lawsuit are also facing another four criminal cases and expecting their conviction order from Judge at any time. Two Individuals, Kannan, and Vijayaraghavan from India who are the business partners of Valmiki, Sundaram, and Chandramohan Loganathan are also facing serious criminal charges in India including “an Attempt Murder Charge”. One of the Indian Local regional weekly Magazine owners, Nakkeeran Gopal, and his editors are also facing criminal charges for extortion attempted against the Plaintiffs with serious threats. This is a shame to the Indian American Community in this nation, where they have earned an excellent reputation for their good behavior. However, this kind of news literally makes the main stream Americans feel that Indian American people are bad people. When we spoke to couple of plaintiffs in the lawsuit they were literally crying and when we listened to the pain and suffering which they underwent by this big conspiracy is really immense and we really do not have words to express their pain and suffering caused by the conspiracy. Please make sure that you look for the next month Karma magazine to get more feedback about this high profile white collar crime, conspiracy , Civil Rights Violation in which a local Hindu Temple and the local police department took an extensive part.

life with her husband Kesari. To mitigate from the curse, she performed intense austerities for many years, and worshipped Shiva. King Dasaratha of Ayodhya has performed a sacrifice for progeny (Putra Kameshti Yagam). He was blessed with a golden bowl of Divine Beverage (Payasam) and he shared the beverage among his three wives - Kausalya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra. He was blessed with three male children through his three wives and the children were named as Rama (son of Kausalya), Bharata (Son of Kaikeyi), Lakshmana and Satrughna (Twin Sons of Sumitra). Sri Rama is said to be the reincarnation of Lord Vishnu. Sri Jambavan is said to be the reincarnation of Lord Brahma. Sri Hanuman is considered as an incarnation of Lord Shiva. Hanuman Chalisa, the holy devotional work written by Goswami Tulsidas in the sixteenth century, has gained enormous popularity among Hindus living the world over. With the blessings of Sri Hanuman, Goswami Tulsidas has also written Ramayana in Hindi and this Tulsi Ramayana is known as Ram Charitha Manas. Tulsi Ramayana has revolutionized the Ram Bhakti movement by enabling common man to recite the glorious legend of Sri Rama in Hindi. The Power of Sri Hanuman Sri Hanuman is understood as great jnani, yogi and a brahmachari (bachelor). He has been blessed as chiranjivi, one who lives eternally. The blessings of Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, Surya, Indra, and Vayu made Sri Hanuman invincible. He is the great lover of music and also mastered the Sanskrit language. Being the Yogacharya, Sri Hanuman is considered as an embodiment of the four yogas. His strength, velour, prowess, will power, memory, balanced emotions, sharp intellect, fearlessness, and noble actions were perfectly refined and grounded in spirituality. None in the world can equal Sri Hanuman. He had only one thought--that of serving his Sri Rama with utmost humility and devotion. He serves, protects and inspires the devotees of Sri Rama. He holds the flag with fish symbols. Sri Hanuman Chalisa praises the selfless service, courage, humble disposition, and foremost devotion shown by Sri Hanuman towards Sri Rama. Sri Hanuman will present Himself with folded hands in prayer wherever and whenever the Holy name of Sri Rama is recited. Sri Hanuman always loves to hear the mantra ‘Sri Ramajeyam.’ Just chant ‘Sri Ramajeyam’ mantra 108 times and pray to Sri Hanuman. Here’s how to recite one of the popular Hindu chants and mantras, the Hanuman Chalisa. Story of Sri Hanuman. Punjikasthala was serving as an attendant of Sri Brihaspati, the guru of the gods. Due to her mistake, she was cursed to assume the body of a female monkey. Her curse would be removed once if she gives birth to an incarnation of Shiva. Due to this curse, Punjikasthala was born as Anjana. She lived a pure and chaste Karma 44 Lord Shiva was pleased with Anjana’s devotion, and decided that he would mitigate Anjana’s curse. To make it to happen, by divine ordinance, a kite snatched the bowl with a fragment of pudding. The kite, while flying over the forest, dropped the bowl where Anjana was observing penance. Vayu, the Lord of wind, directed and delivered the bowl of pudding to the outstretched hands of Anjana. On consumption of the divine pudding, Anjana gave birth to Sri Hanuman. After the birth of Sri Hanuman, Anjana was released from the curse. She wanted to get back to heaven. Sri Hanuman inquired about His future and she assured him that he could never be destroyed. Later, the blessings of all the gods made Hanuman invincible. Sri Hanuman adopted Surya, the Sun god, as his guru. Over a short period of time, Sri Hanuman mastered all the scriptures. As a token of respect, Sri Hanuman offered himself to assist and help Sugriva, the son of Surya (lived in Kishkindha). At Kishkindha, Sri Hanuman met Sri Rama (the Prince of Ayodhya) and his brother Lakshmana. The brothers came in search of Rama’s wife, Sita. Actually Sita was abducted by the demon Ravana. When Sri Rama revealed His identity as Lord Vishnu, Hanuman fell prostrate before him and Rama picked him up and clasped him to his bosom. From then onwards, the story of Sri Hanuman is inextricably interwoven with that of Sri Rama, and is exhaustively dealt with in the Ramayana. Sri Hanuman also finds a place in another important epic, Mahabharata. He was blessing the Pandavas in the battle of Kurukshetra by positioning himself on the flag of Arjuna’s chariot and he was stabilizing and protecting the side. Why the Name Hanuman Chalisa? Goswami Tulsidas wrote these forty verses in the praise of Sri Hanuman. Forty in Hindi is called ‘chalis.’ The hymn containing forty verses is called ‘Chalisa.’ Each such verse is called a chaupai (means 4 legs) and each chaupai of the Chalisa has two lines each--the two always rhyme. Hanuman Chalisa is simple and is the utmost rhythmical poem. The chalisa is sung in different tunes (more than 100) across the world. Even if you don’t understand Hindi,
you may enjoy hearing it.Based on the structure and content of Hanuman Chalisa, the devotees have identified three parts - the invocation or preamble, the main body (chalisa) and the final prayer and request. Hanuman Chalisa speaks about Sri Hanuman’s parentage, his physique and intelligence, valor and heroic acts, devotion to Sri Rama and Sita. 1) You can recite it either at a temple or at your puja room. 2) Sit at your place. Close your eyes. 3) Place a picture of Sri Hanuman. 4) Offer the garland of oscimum sanctum or Tulsi or lotus flower. Avoid nerium flower. You may offer a garland made out of betel leaves. You may also offer garland made out of Vada (a South Indian snack made of Urad Dhall). 5) Light a ghee lamp. 6) Offer incense sticks. 7) Now meditate on Sri Hanuman. 8) Now chant Sri Hanuman Chalisa. After completion of each Hanuman Chalisa chanting, offer a flower to Sri Hanuman. You may recite it 12 times, 24 times, 32 times. You may also recite the hymns 108 times while going around the pipal tree. 9) You may offer Sweet Pongal, Ven Pongal, Vada, Honey, Fruits and Panakam (a beverage made from jaggery and tamarind). Reciting specific hymns. After attending many discourses, I have understood that the recitation of specific Hindu prayers and hymns in Hanuman Chalisa will bestow specific results. I have compiled specific number of the Hymns and the benefits: 1) Chanting the Opening Invocation Hymn of Hanuman Chalisa many times will mitigate the doshas arising out of having insulted knowingly/ unknowingly one’s preceptor/ a Rama Bhakta. The hardships in your life will be relieved and you will be blessed with strength and wisdom. 2) Chanting the First Hymn of the Chalisa “Jaya Hanumaan gyaan guna saagar.....” will bestow Divine knowledge. 3) Chanting the Third Hymn of Chalisa “Mahaaveer vikrama Bhajrangi.....” will remove the bad company of friends or relatives or get rid of your bad habits. It will guide you in your right path. 4) Chanting the Seventh and Eighth Hymns “Vidyavan guni athi chaathur.....” will channel a devotee into Rama Bhakti and he will become dear to Sri Rama. 5) Chanting the eleventh Hymn “Laya sanjivan.....” will mitigate the effects of poisonous bites and remove fear of snakes.
6) Chanting the Twelfth Hymn will remove misunderstanding between your sons and daughters and will bring unity and affection among them. 7) Chanting the Thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth Hymns will help you to reach name and fame. 8) Chanting the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Hymns will restore lost status or help in getting desired career improvements or promotions. 9) Chanting the Twentieth Hymn will remove obstacles and help in reaching your goals. 10) Chanting the Twenty-second Hymn will provide due protection from adverse planetary effects. 11) Chanting the Twenty-fourth Hymn will drive away all negative energies and evil spirits including black magical deities. 12) Chanting the Twenty-fifth Hymn will restore exuberant health and spirits. The recitation will also give you the ability to withstand physical agony and pain when you are injured or in ailment. 13) Chanting the Twenty-sixth Hymn protects you from general hardships and difficulties. 14) Chanting the Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth Hymns will bring fulfillment of desires by Divine Blessings. 15) Chanting the Twenty-ninth will take to the pinnacle of name and fame. 16) Chanting the Thirtieth Hymn will help you to conquer evil forces. 17) Chanting the Thirty-first Hymn will help you to master occult powers and great wealth. 18) Chanting the Thirty-second, Thirty-third, Thirty-fourth, and Thirty-fifth Hymns will certainly make you enjoy a selfcontented life without any bothers / frustrations. You are assured that at the end of such a self-contented life, you will attain the Lotus feet of Sri Rama. 19) Chanting the Thirty-sixth Hymn will mitigate you from all difficulties and pains. 20) Chanting the Thirty-seventh Hymn will secure the Grace of Sri Hanuman. If you want to accomplish some major tasks, then you are advised to chant the appropriate Hymn with devotion 1008 times on an auspicious Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Saturday or on a combination of a Moola Nakshatra day and a new moon day falling during Tamil month Margazhi with the Dhuradrushta Nivran Maha Yagna immediately Karma 45

The following are the special Atharva Vedic Prodosham Days @ Hindu Temple of Ohio September 20, 2010 – Soma Pradosham – Monday,: October 5, 2010 – Bhauma Pradosha – Tuesday: October 20, 2010 – Pradosha Pooja – Wednesday: November 3, 2010 – Pradosha Pooja – Wednesday: November 18, 2010 – Pradosha Pooja– Thursday: December 3, 2010 – Pradosha Pooja – Friday: December 18, 2010 – Sani Maha Pradosh – Saturday. Details of Atharva Vedic Pradosha Purana, - how Lord Shiva, the most Compassionate, decided to drink the poison to save world. Worshipping Lord Shiva which was installed with Atharva Vedic Way on the Pradosha pooja time is one of the most sacred and important according to PRADOSHA PURANA. Once the gods (Devas) and the demons (Asuras) were churning the milky ocean with the help of Vasuki, the serpent king, hoping to extract amrtam (nectar) from the Kseerabthi (milk ocean). Vasuki who was employed as a rope for churning, endured severe abrasions and strangulation. Thereupon, she spewed halahalam, a potent dark poison capable of destroying the worlds. Threatened by the scorching venom, the celestials fled in great horror. Brahma took to His heels. Vishnu’s bluish body darkened further. Indra could not be seen. Agni, the fire god, could not bear the raging heat. Yama ran amuck in all directions. Varuna became unconscious, Kubera fled. Hosts of siddhas, Caranas, Gandharvas, Yakshas and Maharshis went to Kailasa and sought the Lord’s feet as refuge. Lord Shiva was moved with pity at their plight and was overcome with compassion by their prayers. Soon He bade Sundara for a prompt intervention, who then rushed to the ocean, collected the all-pervasive poison and holding it in his hand as a small
The only Temple in the entire western countries, that too in USA that has the biggest Shiva Lingam & Nandhi Bhagawan / Bull facing Lord Shankar Bhagawan/ Shiv Ji. This is the only place in the entire North America Shivji and Nandhi Ji prana prathitas were done with ATHARVA VEDIC standards. It’s again another wonder in the world. After 7000 years a temple in the world, in which Lord Shivji is being installed on the basis of Atharva Vedic standard @ Dayton OH, with the powers of only Living Siddhar in the USA, Maharishi “ Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar”. Lot of Devotees appreciated that they were able to see/ have the Darshan of Lord Shiva in this Mandir lively. Visit the mandir to feel and
jambu fruit, returned to Kailasa. The Lord became exceedingly happy after seeing it. He showed it to Girija and gave the title ‘Halahala’ to Sundara, who thenceforth came to be known as Halahala Sundara. Thereupon, the Lord accepted the Halahala pellet from his hand and, with the loving permission of Universal Mother, swallowed it. By Goddess Uma’s command, the pellet froze in the Lord’s throat, painting it blue and becoming an embellishment, gave Him the name Nilakanta. [It is also a common practice for womanhood to worship Goddess Parvathi for long life of Husbands as She is having ‘Maangalya Baagyam’ and could turn the poison into nectar]. On Trayodhasi(thirteenth moon day) they realized their sin of not praying the God and pleaded for forgiveness. The pleased graceful Lord Shiva forgave them and danced between the horns of the Nandhi (Holy Bull). That time is called Pradhosham. Whoever Prays Lord Shiva in that time; Lord Shiva fulfills their wishes and gives them mukthi. Anoint Lord Shiva with Love, He would give Himself! Among the poojas performed by Shaivites to the Graceful Lord Shiva, the Pradosha Pooja plays an important role. In Shukla Paksha (15 moon days from new moon to full moon) and Krishna Paksha (15 moon days from full moon to new moon) the evening of the Trayodasi (thirteenth moon day) between 4.30 pm to 6.00 p.m. is called “Pradosham”. It comes once in fifteen moon days. Pradosha time is to Pray Lord Shiva and invoke His Blessings. Praying in this time will free us from sins and gives Moksha (hence the name Pradosha). During Pradosha time, a special type of circumambulating called “Somasutra Pradakshinam” which is elaborated separately. Somasuthra Pradakshinam is a unique way of circumambulating the GOD. First saluting the Rishabha Devar (Holy Bull or Nandi) go anti-clockwise and salute Chandikeshwarar (not crossing the Gomukhi). Now return in the clockwise manner salute Rishabham and continue clockwise till the Gomukhi (not to cross it again). Then return in anti-clockwise direction salute the Rishabham again and proceed towards chaNdIshar. From there return back clockwise without worshiping Rishabham and reach the Gomukhi. Finally return back anticlockwise from there to salute Rishabham and continue to Chandikeshwarar
and return back to Rishabham and worship the Shiva Lingam (at the altar) by viewing through the space between the two horns of the Holy Bull. This is one Pradakshinam. Three such times Pradakshinam to be done. If you carefully observe the curve traced by doing the pradakshinam is very similar to the periphery of the crescent. Hence this way of circumambulating is called Somasutra Pradakshinam. During the Athrava Vedic pradhosham time Somasootra Pradakshinam is the recommended way of circumambulating the God. In many of the temples this is followed always. A point to note here is that the gomukhi is never crossed. gomukhi is the place where the water after anointing (abhisheka theertham) would be flowing northwards out. By doing this way of Pradakshinam one does not step over this holy water. Dear Devotees, please understand that, although numerous Hindu Temples perform Pradosham, no temple in the Nation comes under Atharva Vedic standards except our Hindu Temple of Ohio and except our Mandir none other mandirs in the USA are managed by a Siddhar .

Maa Kaatyayini, who persistently battles against the evil and deceitful entities. Maa Kaalratri, who killed Raktabeej ( a demon who produce a demon from every drop of blood that fell from his body. Goddess eventually licked the blood before it could reach the ground and hence conquered him).
Maa Chaamunda, who killed two demons--Chanda and Munda and restored tranquility. Maa Maha Gauri who also liberate the world of evil forces. Mata Sidhidaarti, who is a treasure house of Mystic Powers (Yantra Tantra) and Knowledge (Gyaan). Some may also say that the nine days are divided and devoted to the Trinity of God worshipped in a female form in which for three days Maa Durga (Goddess of valor) is worshipped, for three days Maa Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth) and three days for Maa Saraswati (Goddess of Knowledge and Art). On the fifth day, that is, Lalita Panchami books are gathered, lamp is lighted to invoke Saraswati. The eighth and ninth day, Yagna (sacrifice offered to the fire) is performed to honour heavenly Goddess and bid her farewell. Navratras are celebrated with great vehemence especially in West Bengal where it is known as “Durga Pooja”. The Hindus in Gujarat celebrate it with nine days of Garba dance. In Chhattarpur Temple in Delhi, over a million devotees visit during these days. During this period most of the Hindus go to Temples for prayers. At some places, clay idols of Goddess Durga are adorned with different weapons in her eight arms, riding a lion, with demon Maheshasur lying dead at her feet. For eight days these idols are worshipped and then immersed in river or sea-shore on the ninth day with great fanfare. This period of Navratri also allows for recitation of sacred scriptures such as Durga Sapshudi from Markanday Puran. This narrates how Goddess Durga was blessed and provided with weapons by our Trinity of Gods to annihilate Maheshasur, the demon who had forced Gods to leave heaven and take refuge on earth. Musical recitations (Kirtans) by famous musicians are offered for the benefit of the Goddess and devotees.
