Problems in getting married and spiritual Salvation of

P

Planet Mars is considered to be a commander-in-chief among all the other planets. It symbolizes immense courage, aggression, vitality, confidence and warrior qualities. It drives the fire of independent spirit and sense of purpose among individuals. Mars is also known as Angaraka and Kuja, meaning the burning coal and the fair one respectively. He rules over the two sidereal signs of Aries and Scorpio. He is exalted in Capricorn and fallen in the sign Cancer. Mars is identified with Lord Karthikeya, the god of war. He is the son of Lord Shiva. Karthikeya was born with six heads and he killed the invincible demon Taraka, releasing the Devas from Taraka’s oppression. The above depict the valor, strength, courage and the protective quality of Mars. Thus, Mars is known as the protector of dharma and the purpose in life.

Misconceptions about Manglik Dosha

T

here are many problems in getting married. Nowadays getting married in the prescribed age has become very rare. There are a lot of reasons for this. The major problem is called as “Mars Dosha” or “Manglik”. There is nothing wrong in being a Manglik. Mangliks are normal people. Most importantly, Mangliks should realize that being a Manglik is not a matter to be afraid of; it is not the end of the world for them. Matters pertaining to the intensity of the Manglik Dosha and its cancellation play major roles and these are to be studied deeply. Atharva Veda has mentioned a lot about the Manglik Dosha and the remedies for overcoming the Manglik Dosha. One of the biggest misconceptions and fears in the Hindu society with respect to marriage is the presence of Mars Dosha or Kuja Dosha in the horoscope. Mars Dosha occurs, when Mars is placed in the ascendant, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of the natal chart. However, the Atharva Veda includes the 2nd house also in the Mangal Dosha list. People in whose natal chart Mars is placed in the above positions are called Mangliks. Now let us see who is Mars or Mangal or Kuja. Siddhi Times USA 4

Now days a lot of fake astrologers have entered in the field. They are not so well learned scholars of astrology. They have done a lot of misconceptions in all aspects of astrology. That too particularly, they have done a lot of misconceptions about Mars. They have done a lot of misconceptions in married life and getting marriage. They have taken their shelter in Magal or Kuja or Mars. Some of the most common misconceptions about the planet Mars is that if a person is born on a Tuesday, then he is said to be a Manglik or Mars-dominated native. But it is not true. Another misconception is “double Manglik Dosha”, which is a term being used by many astrologers. There is no such term as “Double Manglik Dosha”, which refers to Mars being in any of the above mentioned houses and also in its own sign or in exaltation. Atharva Veda, be on the contrary, Mars in own house or exaltation will considerably reduce the ill effects of the Manglik Dosha. The most famous misconception about being a Manglik is that if he/she is married to a non-Manglik, then the spouse is bound to die. The above can be seen in a few cases, where Mars is severely afflicted; overall strength of the horoscope also needs to be checked according to the Atharva Veda techniques.

Marriage and Manglik Dosha

Manglik Dosha is primarily considered at the time of marriage. Many people consider Manglik Dosha as a bad yoga and are reluctant to marry the persons, who have the Dosha, even if the Dosha is cancelled in the birth chart. The nature of the troubles in marriage absolutely depends on the nature of Mars in the Natal Chart and the Navamsa Chart. Also the birth chart’s overall

profession. Mars in the 7th house: - A lot of energy; difference of opinion with family members, that too particularly with the spouse. Mars in the 8th house: - Early death of the mate. Mars in the 12th house: - Financial losses, many enemies and repressed anger.

All the aforesaid are only hints and basics. To know more and more about individual horoscope and to solve your problems spiritually. contact: Dr. Commander Selvam (Swamiji Selvam Siddhar) @ USA toll free 1-800-5743427 or 1-888-232-1818 or Hindu Temple of Georgia @ 770-447-9393 ext -241- or email to avtemple@aol.com

strength should be assessed, especially regarding aspects from any benefic planets on the 7th house and 7th lord. Another factor influencing the Manglik Dosha is the age of the person at the time of marriage. Mars is said to have a maturity age of 28. For a Manglik person, the malefic effects of Mars reduce after the age of 28. Common effects attributed to Mars with respect to its position in the Natal chart: Mars in the first house: - Quarrelsome on even minor issues; combative and dominating in relationship. Mars in the 2nd house: - Harsh speech, lack of money and understanding in the family. Mars in the 4th house :- Aggressive emotional nature, which may effect the career-front, with frequent changes in

an interaction between the two. However, above all these factors there is another “invisible” factor that decides the nature of a child. that is Astrology. According to Vedic Astrology, the Ascendant or Lagna is the most important factor that influences the life of a common individual. There is another ascendant too. It is called the “Aadhana Lagnam.” By calculating the Aadhana Lagnam, one can ascertain the time of the conception of the particular child. Atharva Veda has a rule for Vedic Astrologers. It is: “Learn the process of preparing the Aadhana Lagnam - it is considered the most important - otherwise don’t use it.” There are a lot of factors that decide the various aspects of a child. Those aspects are obedience, knowledge, adherence to the elders, thirst for education, strong physic and a strong mind. The factors that decide them are the position of the planets in a child’s birth chart (horoscope). By properly analyzing the position of the planets one can determine the spiritual salvation of the problems faced by a child. The horoscope must be prepared according to the Atharva Vedic techniques and to be read in the Atharva Vedic standard. Then Atarva Vedic rituals must be performed under the guidance of a learned Atharva Vedic scholar. By doing so one can get a peaceful spiritual salvation for their child’s problems. The optimal development of children is vital to society and so it is important to understand the social, cognitive, emotional, and educational development of children. There are also some theories that seek to describe the sequence of states that comprise child development. Attachment Theory, which originates in the work of Atharva Veda, is a psychological, evolutionary, and ethological theory that provides a descriptive and

infant. The Sisu is up to the age of pre-school. Balaka/Balaki is up to teen-age. And teenagers are called Tharuna/Tharuni. The problems in having good children begin with the parent’s fertility. Childbirth is the process in which the baby is born and is usually considered the beginning of a child’s life, and its age is defined relative to this event in most cultures. However, problems are to be analyzed right from the beginning - the stage of fertilization. As per the Atharva Vedic Scriptures children up to the age of seven are considered divine images, they are considered innocent - next to God. Children from the age of seven onwards are considered responsible for their actions. Child development refers to the biological and psychological changes that occur in human beings between birth and the end of adolescence, as the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy. According to Atharva Veda and Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar these developmental changes may be strongly influenced by genetic factors and events during prenatal life. Genetics and prenatal development are usually included as part of the study of child development. Developmental change may occur as a result of genetically controlled processes known as maturation, or as a result of environmental factors and learning, but most commonly involves

he entire human race springs forth out of a journey through childhood. Atharva Veda mentions much about children. Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar has conducted extensive research into the Vedic Scriptures to analyze the problems associated with the raising of good children. There are so many problems! Even so, Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar has interpreted all the nesesary factors and solutions for the modern world. The problems have been classified into two major categories. The first one is fertility and the other one is the proper raising of children. Atharva Vedic Astrology delves heavily into these subjects. Atharva Veda has further classified children in three various ways. They are Sisu, Balaka or Balaki), and Tharuna or Tharuni. Balaka is masculine gender and Balaki is feminine gender. Tharuna is masculine gender and Tharuni is feminine gender. The term “Sisu” referes to both a neonatal and an

explanatory framework for understanding interpersonal relationships between human beings. Attachment Theorists consider children to have a need for a secure relationship with adult caregivers, without which normal social and emotional development will not occur. There are a lot of problems concerned with children. It starts from conception and it goes on until their marriage and leaving the home. Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar has done a vast amount of research on Atharva Veda and he has many wonderful spiritual ways to solve the problems of children.

I

feel very happy to share my thoughts and ideas on Spirituality in this issue also. I am very proud to be blessed by the Almighty and Swamiji to share my thoughts and ideas on Spirituality. During the past issues, we discussed a lot about spirituality taught by many saints and monks of different religions. In this issue, we will see the difference between Spirituality and religion. Over the years, some of the people used their free will and chose to become different. Some became too busy to pray and did not want to live the way that the Creator has given to them. Some used their free will and chose to pray and live in a different way. Many of them traveled beyond their given home. Now we have many new people and many ways to pray and live. From the different cultures that evolved in the different lands, come with different religions and different forms of spirituality. In addition, they seem so different. Moreover, we wonder why, if there is one God, are there so many religions? For many people spirituality is troublesome. They do not know what to believe in because there are so many different beliefs. They do not know what religion is the best because there are so many. Moreover, many people who want to turn their lives around struggle with spiritual concepts because they have an aversion to religion. Spirituality is not the same as religion. Religion is not spirituality. You do not have to be religious to be spiritual. Moreover, being religious does not make you spiritual. Going to a place of worship often and donating

Siddhi Times USA 8

a portion of your income does not make you spiritual. It makes you a religious follower but not necessarily a religious person. How can that be? Let me offer some ideas that religion and spirituality are two completely different and separate things. Spirituality is natural. We all have it, whether we know it or practice it, it is in us. Moreover, it really is a rather simple thing. We want to be happy and live a “good” life. To have friends and be social and have a special someone. We want to be “good” and do the right things. However, we have some very deep questions. What happens when I die? Is there a God and who is it? How should I pray to this God? How did we get here? These questions are usually overwhelming for many people. Moreover, human nature is to turn to an authority to tell us the answers. That is the purpose of and the origin of religion. Religion is a man made, culture based doctrine that guides its people in the practice of spirituality. Religion is a good thing that in some cases has had bad consequences on some individual’s spirituality. Not because religion is bad, but because it is being applied in a bad way. Because religion is man made and culture based, it naturally has some of the rules and taboos of that particular culture built into it. Unfortunately, for some, many

cultures have chosen to use the fear of God to enforce the man made rules of that culture. In addition, some wonder, how can there be a loving God when so many terrible things happen to some people. Creator gave us free will. No one, no thing, can totally control that which has free will. Although Creator has a great plan for us to be happy, healthy, and good people, He has no control over it. If we chose to follow this great plan, our lives can be wonderful. However, there can be sadness, pain, or misfortune even if we follow a good spiritual plan. Because that is the flow of life. Things happen in lives that are not always good. Many people chose not to follow a spiritual path and do things as they wish. Moreover, while those people walk through life, they cause an imbalance that affects the web of life and all living things. It does not mean they are bad people. Though some of them choose to be bad and know better, many do not know any better. Many do not even have a true understanding of goodness or spirituality. Many were never taught. Many had reason to doubt what they were taught. You can be a spiritual person without being religious. You only need to have faith that there is some super human power out there. Pray to that super human power for guidance and strength, faith and protection, help and wisdom. You need not pray in some specific Siddhi Times USA 9

way. Only quiet your thoughts and focus on praying. May be you will think your prayers. Maybe you will say them aloud. May be you will read them from a book or collection. Try to be humble and focus more on prayer for goodness and for other people. Do not pray for great things for yourself but pray only for guidance in living in a good way. Do not Pray for yourself but pray for all. Religion is an institution established by man for various reasons. Exert control; instill morality, stroke egos, or whatever it does. Organized, structured religions all but remove god from the equation. You confess your sins to a clergy member, go to elaborate places to worship, told what to pray and when to pray it. All those factors remove you from god. Spirituality is born in a person and develops in the person. It may be kick started by a religion, or it may be kick started by a revelation. Spirituality extends to all facets of a person’s life. Spirituality is chosen while religion is often times forced. Being spiritual is more important and better than being religious. As our Swamiji Siddhar always says by being Spiritual, we can lead a very comfortable living but not a luxurious living. We need only to be comfortable in all occupations but not only luxurious. Religion can be anything that the person practicing it desires. God, on the other hand, defines spirituality. Since religion is man defined, Religion is a manifestation of the flesh. However, Spirituality, as defined by God, is a manifestation of His nature. True spirituality is something that is found deep within oneself. It is your way of loving, accepting and relating to the world and people around you. It cannot be found in a place of worship or by believing in a certain way. These definitions are not just different, they are incompatible! To define spirituality in a way which makes it dependent upon the individual? It is something that “develops in the person” or is “found deep within oneself.” The other, however, defines spirituality as something, which comes from God and is defined by God while religion is “anything that the person desires.” Is spirituality from God and religion from Man, or is it the other way around? Why such divergent views? We can better understand why such incompatible definitions (each representative of how many, many others define the terms) appear by observing what unites them: the denigration of religion. Religion is all about people controlling other people. Religion distances you from the sacred. Spirituality, whatever it really is, is good. Spirituality is the “true” way to reach God and the sacred. Spirituality is the right thing to center your life for protection and strength. Valid Distinctions between Religion & Spirituality This is not to say that there is nothing at all valid in the concept of spirituality — just that the distinction between spirituality and religion in general is not valid. Spirituality is a form of religion, but a private and personal form of religion. Thus, the valid distinction is between spirituality and organized religion.

We can see this in how there is little that people describe as characterizing spirituality but which has not also characterized aspects of traditional religion. Personal quests for God? Organized religions have made a great deal of room for such quests. Personal understandings of God? Organized religions have relied heavily upon the insights of mystics, although they have also sought to circumscribe their influence so as not to “rock the boat” too much and too quickly. Moreover, some of the negative features commonly attributed to religion can also be found in so-called “spiritual” systems. Is religion dependent upon a book of rules? Is religion dependent upon a set of written revelations from God rather than a personal communication? A Course in Miracles is a book of such revelations which people are expected to study and learn. It is important to note the fact that many of the negative things which people attribute to religions are, at best, features of some forms of some religions. This is perhaps why so much of spirituality remains attached to traditional religions, like attempts to soften their harder edges. Religion is spiritual and spirituality is religious. One tends to be more personal and private while the other tends to incorporate public rituals and organized doctrines. The lines between one and the other are not clear and distinct — they are all points on the spectrum of belief systems known as religion. Neither religion nor spirituality is better or worse than the other is; people who try to pretend that such a difference does exist are only fooling themselves. I once again thank Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar for giving me a chance to share my thoughts on Spirituality. I pray the almighty to shower its entire blessings on all of us to have a smooth occupation. I pray the Almighty to make us meet in the next issue also with some more new ideas and thoughts on Spirituality.

The problems in the relationship between father in law, mother in law and daughter in law and the spiritual solutions for the problems.
Up to the marriage a girl is only a daughter. After the marriage she becomes the daughter in law of a different family. Normally most of the families consider the daughter in law as the most important member of the family and show a great love and affection to her. But in few families the daughter in law will be tortured like anything by the in laws. The father and mother of the husband are called as the father in law and mother in law. According to the horoscope of the suffering girl the planets will be in the worst position. If the planets Sun, Moon and Venus are not in a good position it is definite that the girl will have lot of troubles from her mother in law and father in law. Among These Planets If the Planet Sun is in a good position surely that girl will have a great support from her father in law. If the planet Moon is in a good position, the girl will get the wonderful help from the mother in law but she will have more disturbances from her father in law. If the planet Venus is in a good position in the horoscope of the suffering girl, she will get the greatest help from her husband but the troubles from the father in law and mother in law will be more. What is the best way to solve all these kinds of problems? Atharva Veda has explained about a lot of Yaksha/Yakshini devathas to solve this worst problem. For solving some problems Dr. Commander Selvam (Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar) prescribes only the devathas rituals. For clearing some problems he prescribes devathas rituals along with Yaksha/ Yakshini devathas rituals. For clearing certain problems Dr. Commander Selvam (Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar) prescribes only Yaksha/Yakshini devathas rituals. What is devatha? What is Yaksha devathas and what is Yakshini devathas? Devathas are Gods. Yaksha is the masculine gender for demi- gods and the Yakshini is the feminine gender of demi goddesses. For correcting the problem of relationship between the father in law, mother in law and daughter in law Atharva Veda describes both Yaksha and Yakshini devathas rituals. There are eighteen devathas in total. Out of this eighteen eleven are male demi gods and seven are female demi goddesses. The eleven Yaksha devathas are called as “Ekadasa Maha Yakshas”. According to Atharva Veda they have got very fearsome poses.

law and mother in law to be soft and sweet to the daughter in law. The tenth is Kreetana Yaksha. He makes the daughter in law as the important personality of the family.
The eleventh one is Mohana Yaksha. He creates a great love and affection in the minds of father in law and mother in law towards the daughter in law. The Yakshini devathas are called as Saptha Maha Yakshinis. They are Jayanthi Yakshini, Divyayogini Yakshini, Siddhayogini Yakshini,Mahayogini Yakshini, Daakini Yakshini Viroopakshi Yogini, and Maliniyogini Yakshini. Jayanthi Yakshini makes the daughter in law to win the mid of the mother in law. Divya Yogini Yakshini makes the mother in law’s mind to be more and more attached to the daughter in law. Divya yogini Yakshini clears off all the evil thoughts from the mind of mother in law. Siddhayogini Yakshini unites the minds of father in law and mother in law towards the daughter in law. Mahayogini Yakshini makes the mother in law and father in law to keep the daughter in law in the place of a daughter. Daakini Yakshini removes the cruelty of the mother in law and father in law. Viroopakshi Yakshini diverts the vision of the mother in law and father in law towards the daughter in law. Maliniyakshini Yogini unites the mids of the mother in law, father in law and daughter in law. The Atharva Veda tells that these mantras should be learnt only from a Guru maharaj. The rituals performed as per the directions of a Guru Maharaj along with the help of learned Vedic scholars give the entire benefit of the rituals. The devathas and Yaksha/ Yakshini devathas solve the problems and bless the devotee with a long and happy living.

The first is Neelakanta Yaksha. He has a blue throat. He controls the voice of the father in law and mother in law. The next is Visalaksha Yaksha. He makes the bad vision of the father in law and mother in law as the best one. The third is Marthanda Yaksha. He graces the daughter in law with a great mental strength. The fourth is Swachandha Yaksha. He graces the daughter in law with a smiling face. The fifth is Athisanthushta Yaksha. He makes the father in law and mother in law to fell satisfied with the daughter in law. The sixth is Kechara Yaksha. He removes the evil ideas from the minds of father in law and mother in law. The seventh is Samhara Yaksha. He kills the evilness of the planets.

Nightmares? Or Bad Dreams? Atharva Vedic way of clearing off the Bad dreams.
The above title may seem odd, if not a complete contradiction. Why would anyone fear that nightmares or anxiety dreams might be harmful? If you’re in the half of the population that has experienced an anxiety dream or nightmare within the last month, then this may even be what you’re wishing you could get rid of, right? Some people who had nightmares or recurring dreams early on in life even manage to block their dream recall entirely in order to stop being upset by such experiences. This unfortunate view of “bad” dreams as things to avoid is precisely the reason for the above title and for this article. An avoidance or denial approach is much like putting a BandAid on a car’s blinking oil light because the light seems annoying. Of course, fifty or a hundred miles later, it would be greatly preferable to have understood the warning. Obviously, it’s even better not to have the light blinking, but if it does, then it’s important to do something about it since it’s there for a good reason. One certainly wouldn’t be very wise to disable it. Almost everyone has experienced one

or more dreams that contain anxiety or outright fear. For some, unpleasant dreams or nightmares recur repeatedly; for others, the content may change while the theme remains the same, such as scenes of falling, or of being pursued or attacked, late or unprepared for a presentation or an exam, stuck in slow motion, unable to move or scream, or naked in public, to name a few common themes. This type of experience, when unpleasant, is usually associated with lack of progress by the dreamer to recognize. The Atharva Veda clearly states the reasons for the bad dreams and scary dreams as follows. “The human mind is the reason for the dreams. The mind is controlled by the planets. The planets are controlled by the Yaksha/ Yakshini devathas. So, the planets are the basic reasons for the bad dreams and scary dreams”. Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar, as an Atharva Vedic scholar has researched the entire Atharva Veda scriptures and has found out numerous things about the planetary positions in an individual’s horoscope and the day to day position of the planets play a vital role in the thoughts of the human mind. The thoughts of the human mind reflect as good or bad dreams. Though it has been scientifically proven that we all dream every night, we get the fear of nightmares only on a very few nights. This can usually be overcome by performing the Atharva Vedic Thantric rituals under the guidance of Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar. The Atharva Veda tells a lot about the Yaksha/Yakshini devathas,

who control the mind, the bad dreams and nightmares. This is like a bitter but quite necessary medicine; represent opportunities for personal spiritual healing through much-needed emotional release. These are often indirectly warning us about current behavior patterns or psychological imbalances that we need to remedy if we don’t want such unpleasant dreams to repeat, or worsen. Sometimes, such imbalances or patterns resolve themselves as the dream percolates into waking thought and we unknowingly respond and make adjustments in our life. But if we block, deny or ignore such messages from the subconscious for too long, then it usually speaks ‘louder’ to get our attention often by bringing related events, which is called as day mares, into our waking hours. These day mares show up as sickness, accidents, relationship difficulties or other unfortunate personal circumstances that force us outright to deal with the issue at hand. If the night mares or bad dreams are not taken care immediately in a spiritual way, the person will become mentally effected. To avoid all these unwanted consequences the consultation with Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar and performing the Atharva Vedic Thantric rituals is the only way. To know more and more about the bad dreams and to solve your problems spiritually, contact Dr. Commander Selvam (Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar) @ USA toll free 1-800574-3427 or 1-888-232-1818 or Hindu Temple of Georgia @ 770-447-9393 ext -241- or email to avtemple@aol.com

T

he routine of a human life is much disturbed due to the curse of the ancestors. The sufferings include the problems in job, business or career. The most effected are only the kids. The education and health of the kids will start deteriating by the curse of the ancestors. Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar, the only living Siddhar and Atharva Veda Swamiji in the entire western countries, explains the easiest ways to get rid of the problems. The prayer or worship to the gods is called as Pooja. The worship for the Yaksha/Yakshini devathas is called as rituals and the prayer to the ancestors is called as Shraardham. The Atharva Veda’s chapter, Vishnu Dharamottara Purana states that those who obtain the property of the dead should perform Shraardham. If the Shraardham is not performed properly the concerned family will get the curse of the ancestors and suffer much due to that curse. As stated earlier, Nimi performed Shraardham in respect of his dead son, but later on repented, having gone against religious customs. Sage Vihatprashar has justified it as that such an ordinary rule may have to be overlooked, under exceptional circumstances. However, Sages Bodhayana and Vrihadshatatap state that a Shraardham, particularly at Gaya, can be performed in reverence to anyone, out of veneration and affection. According to Atharva Veda Thantras, grandson can also perform Shraardham to the grand parents. The Vedas even tell about the qualifications of a Brahmin for a Shraardham: While in charitable performance, no discrimination of Shraardham, it is essential that a proper choice of the Brahmin should be made, according to clan, knowledge, modesty, condition, beauty and his heritage. The persons who are having the following habits even they are the most qualified with education and knowledge are to be avoided. The unwanted habits to be avoided are gamblers, abortionists, TB patient, cowherd, illiterate, village announcer, interest receiver (money lender), singer, seller of all type of things indiscriminately, intruder into the house of others, poison giver, consumer of grains of criminals, seller of wines, Siddhi Times USA 18

Occupational palmist, Government servant, seller of oils, false evidence giver, quarrelsome with father, receiver of adulterer in his house, blemish, thief, occupational sculptors, imposter, backbiter, friend cheater, women chaser, teacher of Sudras, occupational manufacturer of arms and ammunition, roamer with dogs, one bitten by a dog, who is a bachelor but his younger brother has been married, skin diseased, lover of Guru’s consort, blind, acrobat, one who lives on the earnings of the temple and an occupational astrologer. Such Brahmins should not be invited to perform Shraardham ceremony, because the food consumed by them goes to devils (Rakshasas). There are different types of curses, described in, which befall a donor, because of feeding such Brahmins. Shraardham is not the occasion for widening friendship therefore friends should not be invited to a Shraardham. Shraardham food should not be given to friends or enemies, but should be given to natural persons only. Food given to friends or enemies does not reach the ancestors. Instead of feeding hundreds, it is worthy while feeding one capable Brahmin. An inter-caste Brahmin and a Brahmin born out of wedded women for second time, is not suitable, because everything given to such is equal to ashes. The Vedas have established strict rules for performing Shraardham. Oblations (Offerings): Any woman from another caste should not be employed on cooking food for the Shraardham. A woman under menstruation or a woman with crippled ears should not be allowed at the site of the Shraardham. Any edibles, offered to the ancestors, when mixed with honey, give limitless satisfaction to the ancestors. The Vedas have made a strict list in the materials to be consumed and not consumed for the Shraardham. Ingredients which should not be included

Siddhi Times USA 19

in the food for the Shraardham are Asafoetida, Lassen (Garlic) and onions. Forbidden vegetables are Drum stick, Kachnar, carrots, pumpkin, Amla and squash gourd (konhadda). To end with the topic of Shraardham, in reverence to the Pitrus (ancestors), we narrate here answers to certain queries raised between a dialogue of Bhishma and Yudhishtra of the Mahabharata in relevance to Shraardham. Any person, who is a donor and the Brahmin who performs Shraardham ceremony should not enter into intercourse with wife: the donor for one month because from the day of the Shraardham, the Pitrus (ancestors) live in his semen for one month. The Brahmin concerned, on the day of the performance of the Shraardham, is recognized as the ancestor of the donor on that day. So he should not have intercourse with his wife on that day, because that day, his wife is equivalent to another’s (donor’s) wife. In another query about the action, which one should perform in order to gain the blessings of the ancestors, the later replied that by donation of a blue bull, oblations of sesame seeds mixed water and by offer of lighted lamp, one (donor) gets rid of the debt of the ancestors. So any donation given disinterestedly is great imperishable and ever gives satisfaction to the ancestors. Such donors will save their ancestors from going to hell (Naraka). Thus the time, action, ritual, performer and fruit of Shraardham, were described in Anushasan Parava of the Mahabharata.

Hindus set aside sixteen days in a year which are known as Shraadhs, Pitrupaksh. Those sixteen days fall during the third or fourth week of September or first week of October. The Tithi (date of moon phase according to the Hindu calendar) of death is considered as the Shraardham day of that particular person. On the appointed day a pundit is invited as a special guest. The waning period of the moon during the month of Kanya plus the Poornima of the previous fortnight, form the period of Shraardham is considered as the most auspicious period for performing the Shraardham. The sixteen days include the Tithi of death, irrespective of the waxing or waning of the moon. One can find out the exact thithi from the Panchangam (almanac) or from the punditji, the corresponding dates according to the English calendar and note them down against the name of each individual who is to be honored. Individually, on the Tithi of each person, the ceremony should be performed. There may be a common date for two or three persons. Perform the Shraardham to your convenience and get the blessings of the ancestors. By the blessings of the ancestors, one can have a peaceful life.

uring the past issues, we discussed a lot about Vedic Astrology. I also explained about some problems faced by the human beings and about the ways to solve the problems with the help of Vedic Astrology. In this issue, I wish to explain about the stars. Even though there are many stars in this universe, only 27 stars play a major role in the zodiac according to Vedic Astrology. I wish to divide those stars in three parts and explain the nature of those stars. The zodiac according to Indian Astrology comprises of 360 degrees. There are 27 Nakshatras or constellations in it. Therefore, the value of each constellation is 13 degrees and 20 minutes when measured from the fixed initial point. These 27 Nakshatras (stars) complete the entire circle of 360 degrees of the zodiac. A forecast based on the transit/ correlation/inter - relation of planets in relation to the Nakshatras is more accurate than the results predicted based on any other system. Ashwini is the first nakshatra of the zodiac having a spread from 0°-0’-0” to 13°-20’ and is ruled by the node Kethu. Ashwini is governed by the Ashwins, the twin equestrians. The Sun is exalted here and the horse is the preferred transport of the Sun God. Sun’s exaltation in Ashwini is a reminder to the soul of their eternal connection. Ashwini is the first nakshatra of the zodiac having a spread from 0°-0’-0” to 13°-20’ and is ruled by the node Kethu. Ashwini is governed by the Ashwins, the twin equestrians. The Sun is exalted here and the horse is the preferred transport of the Sun God. Sun’s exaltation in Ashwini is

a reminder to the soul of their eternal connection. In the zodiac at 0° in Mesha, there is a reddish star, which the western astronomers call Arietis. The Indians named it Aswini. The deity for Aswini Nakshatra is Aswi or the Duality known as Aswini Kumar Twins, the physician of the Gods. The Puranas relate that the two Aswini Kumaras were born of mother Sanga and father Ravi. Ashwini nakshatra falls in the zodiac sign of Mesha, which is ruled by the aggressive and fiery planet Mars. A person born in this Nakshatra is inclined towards serving others, is humble by nature, is truthful, and has a contented family life. Ashwini Nakshatra brings about quick aid and tenderization. People born in Ashwini are very active, always busy doing something and they will spend their time keeping their house neat and clean. Ashwini rules all forms of transportation and fast travel. This represents a person with a happy,

Swamiji Selvam “Siddhar”

Siddhi Times USA 21

carefree disposition, very intelligent, infact rather an above-average person in this respect. Vast learning, well developed brainpower, faith in religion, sacrificing tendency, ambitions, philosophical and social are the traits of those born under this nakshatra. Bharani, means “The Bearing Star”, also known as “The Star of Restraint”. Yama, the God of Death, rules Bharani. This is the second nakshatra of the zodiac, ranging from 13°-20’ to 26°-40’. The planet of art and beauty, the Venus, rules this nakshatra.The energy of Bharani is called ugra or krura, which translates as harsh, powerful, hot, formidable and fierce. This star is under the planetary lordship of Venus and is within the sign of Aries, ruled by Mars. The star Bharani represents the character of Agni Rasi Tamo Guna. The etymological meaning of Bharani is “what deserves to be cultivated and preserved” that is dependence, servitors, retainers or anything by which living is earned. Bharani’s animal symbol is the Elephant. This star is connected with the energies we expend to maintain ourselves in the material world.Bharani Nakshatra takes away that which has reached its term of life to a new condition. It shows the movement of the soul away from the body. It conveys ideas pertaining to discipline, self-control to be faithful, be firm, enduring supporting, maintaining, nourishing, etc. In case of strong malefic influences, persons may develop extreme tendencies like crimes, murders, terrorism, etc. If a person is born in this Nakshatra, he is cruel, ungrateful and no sense of indebt ness, achieves notoriety, fears water, is restless and wicked. They are stable, knowledgeable and truthful. Bharani born are honest and they are frank in their opinions and do not want to modify their opinions to please others. An interesting feature of those born in Bharani is that they are quiet fond of spreading rumors. Females born in this nakshatra are career minded. They act more like a leader of a group, rather than an ordinary family member. Bharani- born has agnatic personality, changing moods, business minded, and influential, high position. Agni, the God of Fire, rules Krutthika.This is the third nakshatra of the zodiac, spanning 26°-40’ in Mesha to 10°-00’ in Rishabha. Krutthika is considered the nakshatra where power is born. This is the birth star of Chandra. The passivity of this nakshatra represents their ability to nurture power. Hindu Legends describes Krittika as the foster mother of Kartik devata who is beautiful in appearance and an able commander in a battle. Krittika is also known as the “Star of Fire” and is related

to a commander, fighter, foster mother, luster, and glow of power, physical and creative force. Krittika being a female nakshatra suggests passivity, indicating that Krittika needs outer energy or life circumstance to activate their power. Krittika Nakshatra burns up negativity, purifies what is mixed, and cooks or prepares that which is not yet ripe. This nakshatra rules war, battles, and disputes. Planets in Krittika activate its passive energy. Krittika denotes capability to give a desired change in a form by burning out all the impurities of life or the wrongs and give birth to purity, morality and virtues. People with this nakshatra have a cutting wit and can be sarcastic and critical. They are stubborn, aggressive and can be very angry.

Vast learning, logical, doubting mind, creative ability, unsteady fortune, hot body, enthusiastic, engineering brain and brave are their typical characteristics. Prajapati, the Creator, rules Rohini. Of the 27 daughters, Rohini was the Moon’s favorite wife. This is the fourth nakshatra of the zodiac, ruled by the planet Moon. It spreads from 10°-0’ in Rishabha to 23°-20’ in Rishabha.

Aslesha Nakshatra can be helpful if we have enemies but it can serve to give a person an inimical temperament as well. It all depends upon how the energy of this Nakshatra is used.

I pray Lord Shiva and Sri Vana Durga to shower their entire blessings on all of us to have a very comfortable living.

The Significance of Navaratri
Sri Mathre Namaha
Goddess Parasakthi, wife of Lord Shiva is the united shape of the holy trinity Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. She created this universe. As it is very common to have a few bad things while creating good things, a few evil spirits, called “Asuraas,” were also created. Nobody was able to conquer them. So everybody prayed Goddess Parasakthi to kill these evil manifestations and protect the universe. So, Goddess Parasakthi killed all the evil spiritss in a span of nine days. These days usually come in the Tamil month Purattasi or Aippasi (According to the English Calendar from the 3rd week of September to the 3rd week of October). These nine days are called, “Navaratri,” and the 10th day is called, Vijaya Dasami. This 10th day is the best day to begin the learning of any kind of art or to start a new business. If we pray to Goddess Parasakthi on these days, it is sure that we will get the best blessings from Goddess Parasakthi. We have made elaborate arrangements to celebrate the Navaratri festivals here at the Hindu Temple of Georgia. It is the best to perform Deepa Pooja /Thiruvilakku Pooja on any of these 9 days.

Problems and spiritual salvations of

only Veda that deals with spiritual healing of the problems and spiritual salvations of the problems faced by each and every individual. A felony is a serious crime in the entire world. Felonies were originally crimes which involved the confiscation of a convicted person’s land and goods; other crimes were called misdemeanors. The Federal government defines a felony as a crime which involves a potential punishment of one year or longer in prison. Crimes commonly considered to be felonies include, aggravated assault and/or battery, arson, burglary, illegal drug abuse/sales, embezzlement, grand theft, tax evasion, treason, espionage, racketeering, robbery, murder, rape, kidnapping and fraud. Broadly, felonies can be categorized as either violent or non-violent (property, drug, white-collar) offenses. Some offenses, though similar in nature, may be felonies or misdemeanors depending on the circumstances. For example, the illegal manufacture, distribution or possession of controlled substances may be a felony, although possession of small amounts may be only a misdemeanor. Possession of a deadly weapon may be generally legal, but carrying the same weapon into a restricted area such as a school may be viewed as a serious offense, regardless of whether or not there is intent to use the weapon. It is not that each and every one doing any or all of the aforesaid are caught by the police and taken in front of the law. Only a few are caught. Even only a few out of the caught are punished. What is the reason for this? According to the sayings of Atharva Veda nobody in this earth are born as criminals. But they are made as criminals by the environment and the planetary positions in the concerned individual’s horoscope. If the planets are weak in the horoscope, they become the worst criminals. If the planet Sun’s position is weak, it is definite that the person will be imprisoned at least for a few months.

Problems of felony, misdemeanor and DUI and spiritual salvation of the problems through the Atharva Veda. The services of Dr. Commander Selvam (Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar) are needed in all aspects of life. But more of his spiritual services are needed in legal issues. Swamiji is not an attorney of any kind or Para legal. But he is the best mediator or broker between an individual and the Almighty. As the attorneys are very well versed in arguments that are called as “Vaadham” in Sanskrit, Swamiji is well versed in the “Mantra Vaadham” (argument in the court of Almighty and Atharva Veda Yaksha/Yakshini devathas). There are a lot of legal issues. We will discuss about felony, misdemeanor and DUI cases and getting rid of the problems faced by an individual. It is the best to call the attorney and get his advices. The spiritual consultation from Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar is also essential. The Atharva Veda is the

At the same time if the planet Sun joins with the planet Saturn he becomes powerless. The powerless Sun always puts the individual in troubles and makes the person to do illegal affairs more and more. The individual will be going to jail often. If the planet Sun is debilated and sits along with Raaghu, the individual will be put into jail for false complaints and allegations on him. There are more and more aspects to be calculated according to Atharva Veda. The Atharva Veda tells more and more Yaksha/Yakshini devathas to be worshipped through the rituals. A misdemeanor, in many common law legal systems, is a “lesser” criminal act. Misdemeanors are generally punished much less severely than felonies, but theoretically more so than administrative infractions (also known as regulatory offenses). Many misdemeanors are punished with monetary fines. Usually only repeat misdemeanor

trespass, vandalism, drug possession, DUI and other similar crimes. Those people who are convicted of misdemeanors are often punished with probation, community service or part-time imprisonment served on the weekends. The planetary position in an individual’s horoscope is the only reason for all these problems. If the planet Venus is not in a good position in a female’s horoscope, that female’s character will not be good. If that weaker Venus joins with the malefic planet Raaghu it is sure that the particular female will be imprisoned for prostitution case. These are only hints. There are a lot of points are to be analyzed. Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs is the act of operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol or using drugs. It is a criminal offense. The various versions of “driving under the influence” generally constitute a misdemeanor

offenders are punished by actual jail time. It is highly unlikely that a first time misdemeanant will serve any jail time. It is likely that if one is convicted of a misdemeanor that it will be expunged. In the United States, the federal government generally considers a crime punishable with incarceration for one year or less to be a misdemeanor. All other crimes are felonies. The distinction between a felony and misdemeanor has been abolished by most other common law jurisdictions. Crimes are divided into summary offences and indictable offences. Those who are convicted of a misdemeanor are known as misdemeanants (as contrasted with those convicted of a felony that is known as felons). Depending on the jurisdiction, examples of misdemeanors may include: petty theft, prostitution, public intoxication, simple assault, disorderly conduct,

(punishable by up to one year in jail). However, the offense may be elevated to a felony (punishable by a longer term in state prison) if the incident caused serious injury (felony DUI), death (vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide), or extensive property damage or if the defendant has a designated number of prior DUI convictions within a given time period. Each and everyone are driving cars and motor vehicles. Not all of them are drinking alcohol. Only a few of them use alcohol or drugs while driving. Even only a few among these alcohol and drug users are arrested by the police. What is the reason for this? According to Atharva Veda the planets play a major role in changing the mind of a person. Out of the nine planets the planet Mercury controls the brain and mind of an individual. If the planet Mercury is in his

Siddhi Times USA 28

n today’s speedy world the stress plays a vital role in spoiling the health condition right from a school going kid to the most elderly people. What is the reason for this? First is the work and life style and second are the planets. According to the Atharva Vedic Astrology, if the Ascendant or Lagna is occupied by the planets Sun, Mars and Saturn it is sure that the individual will have lot of stress even if he/she is not doing any critical or difficult works. Those people will make their mind and life style as a stressful one. It may seem that there’s nothing one can do about the stress level. The bills aren’t going to stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day for all the errands, and the career or family responsibilities will always be demanding. But one has a lot more control than he/she might think. In fact, the simple realization that an individual is in control of the individual’s life is the foundation of stress management. When one is under high levels of stress, rational thinking and decision making go out the window. Runaway stress overwhelms the mind and body, getting in the way of our ability to accurately “read” a situation, hear what someone else is saying, be aware of our own feelings and needs, and communicate clearly. The stress management consultants prescribe the following ways to come out of stress. “Think clearly and creatively. Communicate clearly. Accurately “read” other people. Hear what someone is really saying. Trust others. Attend to your own needs”.

Managing stress is all about taking charge: taking charge of thoughts, emotions, schedule, environment, and the way one deals with problems. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun – plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on. Even though one lives according to the aforesaid ways and if the planetary positions are not good in the horoscope it is sure that the concerned person will be affected with heavy mental stress. Atharva Veda has told a lot of ways to make the planets happy and make an individual’s mind very clear and free from stress. The rituals to the Atharva Veda Yaksha/Yakshini devathas is the best way to control the mind make the life a stress free one. The best way to select the exact Atharva Veda Yaksha/Yakshini devathas is to consult Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar. He is a scholar of Atharva Veda and Atharva Vedic Astrology. He scrutinizes the horoscopes very well and he gives spiritual solution and salvation for all sorts of the problems.

Your Dreams and Impacts
an urge to hurry or delay. * Red - rage, anxiety, increased self- esteem, warning, controlling. * Brown - luck with money, abundance, fullness or confusion. * Black - trouble or difficulties. * Multicolored - increased sense of security.
Pig In the gray mists of antiquity, the pig was a symbolic attendant of the Great Goddess, the ruler of the animals. She was also ruler of man’s natural sexuality. The pig’s popular connotations of prosperity and wealth (c.f. piggy-banks) still refer to this, as in this case the pig stands for potency in the sense of a creative force. Plane Crash A crash in an airplane dream can indicate that the dreamer has become too remote form the realities of life and is going to come down to earth with a bump. Police Officer A policeman personifies that function within the dreamer which regulates and orders things. A traffic policeman in a dream gives guidance in how to adapt to a family or social situation in the world around the dreamer. Pot In the mythology of primitive peoples, the pot symbolizes the mother’s uterus. In fairytales, the pot is usually the container in which witches brew their potions. In a dream, the pot usually indicates an unconscious element. Prison With dreams which take place in a prison or dreams of being a prisoner, the psyche is indicating being imprisoned by mental images of the consciousness which, as a rule, do not coincide with reality. In this case, both intellectual and spiritual limitations can be indicated. Prostitute Prostitute in a dream should be regarded as aspects of the dreamer’s own personality. Psychologically speaking, they represent anomalous people - women whose female emotions are stunted and underdeveloped. The prostitute symbolizes spiritual impoverishment and emotional indifference. This can refer either to the (Choppana Sastram By Swamiji Selvam Siddhar- Dr. Commander Selvam ) When it comes to dreaming in color or black and white, science is still divided. Athrv Veda says that 80% of our dreams are in color. They believe that these dreams of color happen later in the sleep cycle while black and white dreams occur earlier in the sleep stage. Others believe we never dream in black and white and believe that it is biologically impossible. The colors in dreams convey different ideas based on our cultural differences. Although, universal dreams occur in all cultures, they express different meanings. Symbolism, (that right brain activity), color and interpretation are ultimately best transcribed by the individual. Some of the folklore on the symbolism of color and dreams can be an interesting discovery. Below is a list of color and their interpretations. Dreaming about the following objects has something to do with good or bad in your life. I have given some ideas about seeing in dream about following objects. However its not limited, since more thing has connected to the dream based on your present graham position too Bath This has the same significance in dreams as in almost all myths and fairytales, that of a symbol of change and cleansing. The image of a bath or bathroom occurs particularly before decisive turning-points in the dreamer’s life. The water in the dream bath symbolizes spiritual energy. Should the bath be a pool in the open air, for example, it is a thoroughly positive image. A modern swimming-pool, on the other hand, indicates the obstacle modern civilization poses to psychic cleansing and change. Party The image of a party in a dream should be seen as referring to the dreamer’s relationship to his fellowmen. The events at the party often show complications and situations of conflict involving the dreamer and the world around him (beyond the immediate family circle). Persecution Dreams Persecution dreams, in diverse variations, are extremely frequent. However, these dream images should be seen as indicating that the dreamer should accept whatever is persecuting him. These are elements of the unconscious which are penetrating the consciousness.

* White- success, awakening of spirituality, higher self learning. * Dark Purple- success in social affairs, psychic ability, clarity. * Lavender-temporary unhappiness or dissapointment. * Blue - freedom from worry, help from others. * Green - travel or news, knowledge, understanding, learning, peace. * Pink - success, softness, flowing love, lack of fear. * Yellow - setback or struggle, and happiness or new beginnings. * Orange- Increased awareness,

marital partner or to an attitude toward fellowman.

Public House (Landlord, Landlady)

Extremely frequently, dreams occur which take place in a public house and in which the landlord or landlady plays a role. Comparable with the kitchen’s significance as a dram symbol, the public house is a place where psychic energy is transformed. The dram often indicates unexpected surprises, where the figure of the landlord plays the role of the unconscious manipulator Bear The bear appears mostly as a helpful, motherly, earthy animal. In a woman’s dream, the bear can appear as an indication of the neglected motherly side of her character. On the other hand, the bear embodies a powerful natural force. Bed Generally speaking, the dream images of a bed assumes an erotic significance. A bed which fills the whole room means that the dreamer awards sexuality too much significance in his life. the reverse is true when the bed is too small or too narrow. Belt The man’s belt has long been a symbol of male strength. Vital energy was thought to stem form the loins and the kidneys; in the past, vitality and sexual potency were always synonymous. For women, the belt is a symbol of virtue and purity. Bird Birds live in the air, the world of the pure intellect. Birds in a dream symbolize intellectual matters. Birth The process of birth in a dream is a sign for the beginning of something new. Its symbolic meaning is, however, extremely rarely that of a real birth, even in the dreams of young women. If men dream of childbirth, it is an allusion to the origination of new ideas, career prospects, etc. Blood Blood is a symbol of vitality. There still exists a general popular belief in blood’s

magical powers. Blood also symbolizes love and passion. Loss of blood can indicate loss of love, but can also indicate a necessary spiritual sacrifice. a blood transfusion can be seen as spiritual enrichment. Bombs & Explosions Things of this nature are to be regarded as danger signals. they can conjure up past war-time experiences. They can indicate events which have caused shock. Bread Bread symbolizes ‘the staff of life’, and also spiritual invigoration. Bread always assumes a positive significance in dreams. Bridge Whenever a bridge appears in a dream, the psyche is signaling that a difficulty can be reconciled or bridged over. however, not every bridge is traversable. The method of construction - if for example the railing is missing or the bridge is incomplete - indicates possible dangers to the dreamer.

Bull The bull is the symbol of male strength and potency. Sexuality requires domination by the male intellect. During cult festivals in Crete, it was usual that youths would grab a bull by the horns, swing onto its back and ride it. the symbolic meaning of this sport is unmistakable. In Spain, it has been preserved up to the present day in the form of bullfights. The image of a bull is not unfavorable, as long as the dreamer sees it as an indication that corresponding psychic energy should be tamed. Burial A statistical evaluation of well over a thousand dreams showed that dreams of burials, dying and the dead are the most frequent of all. The dream symbolism corresponds to the real-life experience that it is often necessary for unfulfillable wishes or matters of conflict to be ‘buried’ once and for all. Of course, the image of a burial can also indicate painful experiences. The decisive factor is the further development in the dream. For the psyche, death represents a process of change. Frequently something new replaces that which has been symbolically buried.

Butterfly The butterfly appears in a dream as a symbol for a mind which is going astray. the modern analogy of a woman’s butterfly mind, her flightiness and inconstancy, is very pertinent here. Woman cannot find peace of mind unless she has experienced sexuality’s spiritual significance in the union of man and woman. Baby 1. Crying babies in a dream may foretell of ill health or minor disappointments in your personal life while a bright, clean baby speaks of a wonderful love affair or even the making of many new friends. A nursing baby can mean contentment or even deception when taken in relation to other symbols in your dream. Dreaming of a baby can also denote the state of your soul life, again in relation to the other signs. 2. Baby- 1. a new venture 2. a new interpersonal relationship. 3. that which appears to be small or of little account but may be of the greatest value. 4. the spiritual truth. 5. that which requires teaching, guidance, and direction. 6. the harmonious union of two people. 7. becoming open and unfearful, in the sense. 8. Something needing nurturance and encouragement. Bachelor A woman dreaming of a bachelor denotes a loss of innocence and purity. A man who dreams of being a bachelor is a warning of an insincere female who will shortly be entering your life. It is also the sign of loss of honor and dignity. Back If you slap someone on the back in your dream it is an omen of mone loss. To see a naked back in your dream is a warning not to lend money to anyone and if it is of the opposite sex the warning is doubled. To see a person turn their back on you means you will be deeply hurt by jealousy or envy. Back-biting To dream of back-biting, (creating malicious gossip), about someone means, you will soon fall into serious error if you do not halt whatever you may be doing that may harm someone. To have someone back-bite you means, you will have problems with family and/ or children. Badger A badger is a fierce little animal and to see this fellow in a dream will show that you have put up quite a fight and won out over your opponents. An injured Badger tells you to fight another day. Bail To dream of making bail or need to make bail is a dream where your subconscious is telling you that you need to accept help from professionals in your area of business, i.e.: bail you out. To go bail for another could denote accidents and Siddhi Times USA 44

misadventure for the dreamer. Bake-house If you dream of an old fashion bake house, then you are in danger of running into pitfalls which will be revealed to you. For a woman to dream this she will have her good name besmirched and false friends will drag her down. Bakery Dreaming of a modern day bakery with all the good smells and smiling people denotes much richness and success for you. To dream that, you are making the bread shows you will be making more money in your endeavors. Ball 1. The If you are playing some sort of ball game as a sport you will soon be hearing some good news. If the ball you dream of is a gala event complete with music then the interpretation is somewhat different. It is a very good omen if you are having fun and enjoying the music and dancing but if it should be a masquerade ball you should watch out for an enemy posing as a good friend. Watching a ball game, or a dance from the sidelines, show that you must overcome shyness to join in the fun. 2. The “perfect sphere”-some Ideal or concept of wholeness. 2. the forces of this world as they relate to the Universal Force. 3. A whole, or well rounded, approach to things). 4. The oneness of purpose. 5.Childhood games. Other possibilities: 1. completeness. 2. competitiveness. Balloon To dream of seeing balloons in your dream indicates a dashing of hope on any and all fronts, business or love, as well as a general falling off of all kinds of businesses you may be involved in. If you are ascending in a balloon, this is an omen of especially frustrating conditions in your life. Baseball If you attend a baseball game in your dream you will find contentment and peace of mind. If you dream, that you are playing the game of baseball you will find contentment, but no real gains in life, unless you quit ‘playing’, and buckle down to achieve your goals. Bath 1. Cleansing and freeing from old ideas. 2. A cleansing and strengthening of the outer self, which should not be confused with the inner strengthening that comes from God Other possibilities.1. Physical cleansing. 2. Letting go of opinions and prejudices.

Bats The dreames is particularly unfortunate if he/she dream about these awful little ugly creatures as almost death news always follow the dream of the bat, often it is the death of a child or a youth. Seeing bats in your dream shows that, many sorrows and grief is are yours due to the evils that, people direct against you. Death of a family member is denoted by a dream of a white bat., while a black bat brings personal disaster. Beach To see yourself working on a beach shows that, you will soon be involved with a job, or project, that will be demanding of your time and effort. If you are just relaxing on a beach this shows that, you value the calm feelings that your family gets togethers with you and lends to you. If you see yourself sitting on a beach and letting the sand run through your fingers, that shows that you are running out of time on something important due to idling your time away. Bear 1. If a bear is pursuing you in your dream, this is a sign that you will experience some financial losses in business. A bear also represents a rival you may have for your loved one, if the bear is seen to be climbing, then the outcome will be in your favor. 2.

Begin To begin something in your dream is your subconscious is telling you that you need to get on with what you have only been planning. It is a warning of wasting valuable time through procrastination.

Betrayal All dreams of betrayal should be studied closely in connection with the entire dream to find out just who or what to expect betrayal from. Betrayal as an omen is not much to go on and the dreamer must take this as a literal warning of an insincere friend or lover and study the dream with this in mind. Sometimes things can ‘betray’ you by not giving you value and satisfaction for cost. Bird 1. Birds are usually considered as a very good omen for the dreamer to receive and this is doubly true if the birds are brightly colored, singing, and flying about. Dead or dying birds foretell a period of coming disappointments and worries, while dreaming of the beak of a bird means you will soon change your place of residence. Birds eggs in a nest signifies money, but to see them broken, then you will experience a loss of money. If you

Birdseed To dream of feeding birds with much birdseed, promises a very large income in the near future, and if you are spreading it around on the ground, your business will ‘take root’ and grow. This is a good dream and it also is an encouragement to the dreamer to forge ahead with his/her plans and not be deterred by misplaced loyalty. In other words, don’t let someone rain on your parade. Birth If the dreamer is pregnant, the dream will be an acting out of hidden wishes, fears or desires, but, soon after you dream of giving birth to a child, or someone else giving birth, you will hear some good news. If the birth is in relation to animals, this shows that any enemies working against your best interests will be defeated, and if the birth is multiple, then you will gain a larger monetary reward for your labors.

Birthday cake To dream of a birthday, complete with the cake, shows that you will have much good luck comes through the well wishes of good friends. If the cake looks ugly in the dream, then you will have some minor bad luck that will not be long lasting, or devastating to the dreamer. Bites This is a dream of very bad omen and it shows that, you are in danger of suffering ill from the hands of someone who has wished you harm for a long time. It is also a wish to undo something that you may have done in past, that is being repairable, as well as a warning of physical harm and monetary losses. If you dream of being bitten by a vampire, this shows there is someone in your life that is draining you, or your resources, and you need to eliminate this person from your life. Biting To dream of biting someone could be a warning that, you are overdoing the pressure you are applying to certain people and causing them pain. In other instances it tells of low business practices and lack of ethics in all your dealings. If you are biting someone as a vampire, then you feel like you must make your own way and not be dependent on others, which makes you feel like a ‘bloodsucker’. Black crow (blackbird) If you dream of seeing a blackbird in your dream, then the next few months will be tedious as you move along in a rut. If your dream is of a blackbird flying, and

singing, then you will meet with good fortune. To dream that you are eating this blackbird, it is an indication that there is someone you need to apologize to. Blanket, Quilt / bed cover 1. The “cover” or mode of conduct in the home. 2. Helpful attitudes to make the best of or to cover a difficult situation. Blood 1. To dream of seeing blood stains, you will have much trouble from an enemy if you start a business or other enterprise. If you are doing the bleeding, try to stay out of confrontations with family and friends, the blood may not be literal but rather, signify a state of ‘bleeding’ emotions. If the blood is seen as a transfusion, your troubles will not be long-lasting. 2. Blood 1. The physical forces of the body itself, indicative of relative level of health or imbalance. 2. The ideas and Ideals of a person (e.g., a blood transfusion representing their transmission). 3. Lifegiving, vital force. 4. Strength. Other possibilities: 1. Kinship, as In “blood ties.” 2. “bad blood” meaning animosity. Book 1. If books were the main theme of your dream, the situation in your life is stable and you will make slow and steady progress to the top of your chosen profession. Look to the other symbols in your dream to tell you in what context you should place the book, or books, in relation to your own life situation, bear in mind that the action associated with books is progress. 2. Book 1. Knowledge. 2. Lessons gained. Other possibilities: 1.Memories. 2. Ideas. 3. Akashic records. Boys Any dream that you have, that features boys in any activity is a good omen and bodes well for the dreamer in whatever he/she is undertaking at the present time. Of course, if the boys are injured, or otherwise beset, then you must take the dream to mean an ill omen. Brakes: Brakes are a warning dream, and more so if you dream that you braked a vehicle and the brakes are failed. Failing brakes are a warning not to accept a new offer

Siddhi Times USA 46

that you have just been presented with, as there are well hidden snags that can harm more from that help. The action of braking itself is an idiom telling you to ‘put the brakes on’, whether it is business or love, or even some impetuous act that could cause you legal trouble. You should also check your brakes on your personal vehicle. Boyfriends If you dream of a specific person such as a boyfriend, you will need to concentrate more on the other symbols of your present dream as the boyfriend can represent several different aspects or people in your life. A boyfriend can be friend, enemy, lover, companion, or the symbol of any of these things in the emotions. If bodily harm is threatened from this person, it would be best to take this as a literal, true, dream and act accordingly. Bridge 1. Crossing a brightly lit bridge, and the bridge itself in good condition, with no difficulty, signifies a change in circumstances with a lot of prosperity heading your way. You should make no changes in your life, or your lifestyle, for the time being if the bridge had any kind of defects. 2. Bridge- 1. Our way of passing through material life. 2. The foundation for a way of life. 3. A transition. Other possibilities: 1. A link between opposites. 2. A way of overcoming a difficulty. Buffalo If you dream of a single buffalo you will see an inordinate amount of income in the next few weeks but if you have killed, or injured, the beast then you must, under no circumstances, accept any new venture offered to you. To dream of seeing a herd of buffalo presages peace and plenty. If a buffalo lets you pet it, you will have a tranquil married life. Building If the buildings you dream of are stately and majestic, you could have too much ceremonies in your life and not enough good people in everyday attitudes. If the buildings are beautiful with lots of green lawn around them, then are you destined for a life of plenty. Should the buildings be dilapidated and in ruins, then this will

show that you will have business or love problems with the loss will be very high. Bullets A bullet in a dream is one of the worst omens. If you are hit with one, this is to warn you to have a medical checkup immediately, and if you see a bullet, or several, do not do or say anything that can be misconstrued as you could lay yourself open to some very worst scandal. Bumble bees A bumble bee is not a very good omen in a dream as most people associate the bumble bee with pain more than they do any other bee. This is a dream of warning and should be co-related with the other aspects of your dream to get the knowledge meant for you to have. Watch out for enemies in friends’ clothing, and don’t get ‘stung’. Bus Being in a bus accident shows that the dreamer will have a period of frustration due to financial embarrassment. To wait for a bus in you dream shows that you will have a temporary set back in attaining your heart’s desire, but, if you are riding on a bus, you will soon win through to capture your love. Butterfly A dream of a butterfly could be telling you to settle down and not to flit from person to person or it could have to do with social situations. The bigger and more beautiful the butterfly, the more of an impression you will make on society, or at a special function that you attend. Use the other symbols in your dream to get you on the right track. War A situation of war in a dream indicates a clash of unconscious elements of the dreamer’s personality or problems from the past which have not been overcome. Water Water is vitally necessary for any kind of life on this earth. It is a symbol of psychic energy - referring to the ‘water of life’.

Weapons Weapons like machine guns or other firearms are signals of over dominant and aggressive tendencies. In psychoanalysis, these weapons are seen as sexual symbols. Wedding As a rule, dreams of weddings are references to a couple’s life together, not without problems nowadays. A sacrificial ritual is often also experienced. It is an indication that every tie or bond means sacrificing independence. The nature of the dream sacrifice, however, rarely refers to reality but much more to the dreamer’s own fears. Witch In a dream, the witch appears as a negative mother-symbol. She embodies the bewitching, threatening and destructive aspects of womanhood. It is she who bewitches man and precipitates him into sexual dependency

Was this an expression of a mother’s anxiety about her son’s welfare? It was more. This is a pointer to the fact that in the present day turmoil, if one worships the dharma devatha and Ishta devatha, and has unshakeable faith in its working, he/she will be surely protected from all the problems of present day life. Rama’s life proved that even animals favored the righteous while Ravana’s is a pointer to the truth that even one’s sibling would desert the unrighteous. Through your Dharma and Ishta devatha report you will have an inspiration to broaden your horizons, and through prayers to your Dharma devatha and Ishta devatha Today, the greatest problem amongst the job going people is recession. Why the recession happens only to particular persons? Somebody get good jobs even though they are not qualified much and somebody sticks on to that particular job permanently. Whereas, some highly qualified people suffer much due to the recession. What is the reason for all these things? Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar replies in one sentence. That is Dharma and Ishta Devathas Pooja. By properly adopting the dharma and knowing the Ishata Devathas through the Atharva Vedic astrology and performing proper Pooja to the proper deities give wonderful Atharva Vedic spiritual salvation from this worst problem.

Therefore it is better to know the divine future so that a person is able to know himself better from dharmic angle. Why should we take this Dharma and Ishta devathas report? What relevance it has for the present day situation? Dharma is the cornerstone of the Vedic tradition and it encompasses all aspects of human life. Thus a righteous way of life is not just for spiritual progress but also for leading a meaningful life in the world. The oft-quoted dictum is that Dharma protects one who upholds it. It is the only armor that protects man and not worldly power and your position which can easily fall away.

Our consultation will contain the following: 1. Who is your Dharma devatha? 2. Who is your Ishta devatha? 3. How do you offer prayers to the dharma devatha and Ishta devatha who can give you deliverance in these hard times? According to Hindu philosophy, there are four Vedas. Among all the four Vedas, Atharva Veda is the only Veda that describes the usage of the super human power to solve the problems faced by the human beings. The diagnostic part of the Atharva Veda is the Atharva Vedic Astrology. Vedic astrology is as old as the Vedas. That too The Vedas, which are the sacred Hindu scriptures, embody eternal knowledge. To the uninitiated, the

Siddhi Times USA 61

Vedas might appear as nothing more than ritualistic oblations to air, water and thunder, etc. In order to decipher what lies concealed in the Vedas, a study of certain subjects is considered a prerequisite. These subjects are called the ‘Vedangas’ or the body organs of the Vedas. There are six such Vedangas. They are: Shiksha, Chhanda, Vyakarana, Nirukta, Kalpa and Jyotisha. Now let us see the brief description of all these things. Shiksha:-, which deals with an understanding of the Vedic ‘Varnas’, ‘Swaras’ and ‘Matras’, and thus with the technique of correct pronunciation. Chhanda:-, dealing with the appropriate lyrical utterance of the Vedic ‘Suktas’. Vyakarana:-, expounding the grammatical aspects of the language. Nirukta:-, which explains the difficult words, ‘padas’ and ‘mantras’. Kalpa:-, dealing with the understanding of Sutras and the use of Mantras, hence concerned with the ritualistic aspect of the Vedas Jyotisha or Vedic astrology: The Vedic way of analyzing the positions of planets. So to say this is the base for the modern astronomy based astrology. Of the body called the Vedas, astrology represents the ‘eyes’, with its capacity to ‘see’ the past, the present and the future. Vedic Astrology is considered as the most important of the above Vedangas. Vedic Astrology is an analysis and forecasting system, based on astronomical data, which allows its practitioners to carefully assess and understand behavior, to measure the effects of the past, the

influence of the present and the tendency of events to unfold in the future. Vedic Astrology appeared in Sanskrit. Later day authors came up with the name – “Vedic Astrology”. The word “Vedic” means “pertaining to Vedas.” Vedas are the sacred scriptures of, what is known today as Hinduism and they are supposed to contain knowledge of all subjects. Moreover, astrology in particular is supposed to be a “Vedaanga” (which means a limb of Vedas). Vedic Astrology is becoming popular these days. Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar’s role is very notable in popularizing Vedic Astrology in western countries. He has great research knowledge of Atharva Veda and Vedic Astrology. There is a vast difference in scrutinizing a horoscope as a “Jyothish” and Atharva Vedic scholar. With the Atharva Vedic astrology one can easily find what the “Ishata Devatha” is and perform the proper rituals to that Ishata devatha and get rid of the problems faced today.
