[This is from the 192nd series in the Tamil version]

When there weren’t anyone to ask for a Nadi reading, I asked “There are quite a lot of different flowers. Can you please explain about them?”. Agastya was very pleased and shared a number of things. Here they are:

The almighty created human, gave them pleasure. Then through humans themselves, He gave them misery. Then He showed various different ways for them to live happily and peacefully. Such a guidance given by the Almighty is Bhakthi. It can be categorized differently. Gnana Bhakthi, Acharya Bhakthi, Serving the Almighty and to do the archana to the Lord with different kind of flowers. All these are done as per one’s temperament and as per the circumstances.

Gnana Bhakthi is obtained after severe penance. Not everyone can follow this path. Only a few could get such a chance. Even Acharya Bhakthi is obtained by worshipping the Lord and not everyone can follow this either.

To serve the Lord, such as constructing a temple, doing Anna Dhana, helping others as per one’s dharma without expecting any returns is such a Bhakthi.

The Bhakthi that surpasses all these is to worship the Lord with flowers by doing Archana and Prarthana. This type is applicable and doable by one and all. It not only bestows peace, but one could do it at any time and call the Almighty for help to give us what we want.
Flowers are an important factor of this. Our ancestors have mentioned about what flower is suitable for which graha, which deity. It is not said just for the sake of it. They formulated them with the subtle base, then once they verified it through their experience just like any scientific experiment, they spread it out for the sake of all through Gnani’s, Rishis, through Vedas.

Surya:

If in your horoscope, if Surya is either in the Rashi or Lagna on 8th or 12th house, worship Surya with ‘Red Lotus (Senthamarai)’ flower every Sunday. Any type of eye related issues and work related issues will vanish. Do not worship Surya with any other flower. If you are not able to find the red lotus flower, then lit a lamp with the wick obtained from the stem of the lotus flower.

Chandra:

If Chandra is joint with harmful grahas and if Chandra Dasha, Chandra Bukthi or Chandra Anthara is happening to one, then that person should do archana to Chandra with white Alli flowers. It wards off any water related disease and removes obstacles for one visiting abroad, could come out of court cases related to women. If one is not able to find white alli flower, let them do archana with Kumkum.

Sevvai:

If Sevvai is present in one’s horoscope in 2, 4, 7, 8 or 12 house and if Sevvai Thasai or Bukthi or Antara is happening where out of disease, jealousy or through envy if someone is not able to make progress in life, the only way out is to pray the Graha Sevvay or Lord Subramanya with Shenbaga flower. The problems would go away just like that.

Budha:

When Budha joins with harmful grahas, in whatever Rashi he is in, there will be harmful effects. Court cases, unwanted skin related disease, enemity through one’s uncle’s relation, loss in business etc might happen. To get rid of these, pray to Lord Budha every Wednesday with Ven Kanthal flower. It is a great parikara.

Guru:

If Guru is present in one’s horoscope on 3, 6, 8, 19 or 12, and if Guru Maha Dasha, Bukthi or Antara is happening, instead of doing various other parihara’s, if one does archana to Guru Bhagwan with Mullai flower, one can cross any obstacles without a fear. The obstacles themselves can be used as a stepping stone.

Shukra:

If Shukra is hidden in one’s horoscope on the 12th house or stays alone in the enemy graha Guru, it is called Shukra Dosha. If one adores Shukra with White Lotus every Friday and does archana, Shukra will become double the amount of benevolent and will provide all types of Sowbhagya.

Shani:

If Shanishwara is present in one’s horoscope on 2, 4, 7, 8 or 12th houses, one may be affected with various different problems. To get rid of them, if one does archana to Shanishwara or the Saturn planet with Karunguvalai flower every Saturday, Shanishwara will help in many ways.

Rahu:

If Rahu is present in one’s horoscope on 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 or 12th house, he may be facing one or the other issues constantly. To get rid of this, when one does archana with Mandarai flower whenever possible, Rahu won’t trouble that person till the end.

Kethu:

If Kethu is present in one’s horoscope on 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, or 12th house either alone or with other grahas, there will be Kethu Dosha. To get rid of this, simply do archana with Red Alli flowers (Sevvalli) whenever possible, they will get Kethu bhagwan’s complete blessings.

These are simple but effective remedies. Let the humans believe in these and do these parihara’s, our blessings!

O devotees of Agastya, please follow these remedies and cleanse yourselves.

[This is from the 191st episode of the original Tamil series]

Eighth question:
Om Agatheesaya Namaha! My love for Lord Muruga is abundant. He takes care of me every second too. He bestows with everything I ask for, every second. I am worshipping Lord Agastya for the past 6 months. He too helps me with everything I ask for, immediately. I wish both their grace should be on me at all times.

AA:
Through the grace of Almighty, he said what he said, that he loves Lord Subramanya. It should be the Mothers who should be worried, not me. It is Sri Valli and Sri Deivayanai who should be worried, not us. But still, through the grace of the Lord, we bless him that his devotion may continue the way it is.

Ninth question:
Pranaams to Agatheeshwara Peruman! His Holiness should lead the Sudarsana Homa to be conducted in the Aapur Nithya Kalyana Venkateshwara Perumal temple. Who is the Perumal who dwells in the basement of that hill? Can He be installed at the hill stop?

AA:
Through the grace of Almighty, there were different types of yagnas and rituals carried out for three days as per our guindance earlier when we were sought for. Hence, at the suitable time, there will be another yagna through the grace of Almighty. That Almighty who bestows His grace as Lord Venkateshwara on that hill, there are about 60 Siddhas who are doing Tapasya there. When the yagna is fixed on dates of full moon days, suitable devotees may feel it!

Tenth question:
Apologies for raising a question again on rebirth. The explanation they gave on Sukha Brahmam and what my teacher said, are they referring to them with doubt or are they referring that a person who passed away has to take a birth again? Please enlighten.

AA:
What we say through the grace of God is, pray to Ravi, you will understand the secret of birht (Ravi – Surya / Sun). It will be interpreted by many in many ways when we say this. Try to understand what we are referring to now, in this circumstances. It is a birth when Atma is dwelling in this body. When this gets completed, the Atma leaves the body and gets into another body (takes birth) as per the effects of Karma and the Lord’s will, we call it a birth. Apart from this, whatever else is said, we do not approve of it. It depends on each one’s mental temperament. Hence, try to understand this better.

Eleventh question:
To reach God, is this required that a Guru in the physical form is required? Can we realize the Almighty without a Guru, that is through our own efforts?

AA:
Through the grace of Almighty, Who is a Guru, you think?

…eleventh question continues:
Guru means…I say this for the sake of others as Agastya knows. When a child is playing, it forgets about its house, parents and gets so involved in the play. It assumes those who are enacting as parents as the real parents, as part of the play, and forgets the real parents. The child has to be reminded of its real parents and to help it reach home. This must be done by someone who remembered the real parents and have reached hom. This person I think, is the only Guru.

AA:
Through the grace of Almighty..

The one who dispels ignorance or darkness is Guru.
The one who helps us to attain the purpose of birth is Guru.

But know this…

To have learnt something, whatever is the reason for that learning, an experience, a person, an incident, a relation, a friend, whatever that leads to that learning, to realize that we have learnt something and we should be alert hereafter – that feeling – in whatever ways or through a person this is felt, all that is Guru. Therefore, instead of searching for a Guru externally, pray to the Lord within, especially when the Lord is worshipped in the form of Guru Dakshina Moorthy, all the doubts about Guru will vanish. The darkness in the mind vanishes.

We are not saying not to search for an external Guru. How much ever an Atma does punya and comes down to show others the means of salvation, it does apply some impurity when it reaches the Bhu Loka (Earth). Hence, even when such a person teaches 90 different good things and does a little bit of a mistake, the person who receives all those lessons mis-interprets it. So we aren’t saying that its incorrect to visit many a different Guru in the physical form but after that, pray to the Lord within “O Lord! Please guide me in which is good, which isn’t” and surrender to Him. This is the suitable way to reach and test the true Guru!

The GOS 180 – Agastya’s blessings (4) – Ashtavakra Maharishi

The Grace of Siddha series can be read here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sixth question:
Namaskaram to the Almighty! Agatheesaya Namaha! There is not much known about Ashta Vakra Maharishi. I request to elaborate about Him. As per His upadesha, if one gets hold of “Shakshi Bhavana”, there is no need of doing Pranayama, Yoga, Self-cleansing to reach Moksha and that one can attain Moksha this very second – please explain about this too I pray. As per Ashta Vakra’s upadesha, is it possible to attain Siddhi by following the methods? Kindly explain.

AA:
Through the Almighty’s grace, that Maharishi got a specific boon from God that his body should appear split in eight different angles and look very ugly, hence the name Ashta Vakra Rishi. When everyone made fun out of his appearance, he remained silence. Not just that, He also thought that every soul should reach the state of bliss that He has reached and gave upadesha on what he realized every second.

But here lies the problem. Until and unless the Maya and Ignorance leave oneself, the one-split-second- of a realization won’t be possible for anyone. What this beloved son mentioned is true. If one follows Ashtavakra’s methods, he can surely attain Siddhi. But to realize that state, to understand it, to perceive it, it takes crores of birth for an Atma. The upadesha of that maharishi can be understood by someone who is already nearing that state in its true form.

Otherwise, just as the man reads so many spiritual scriptures, listens to speeches but acts like a savage when it comes to his own self, till this quality is left, it is impossible for a soul to elevate. Hence, think of the noblest of all, Ashtavakra Maharishi, pray to Him earnestly, particularly, observe a fast in Guru Vara (Thursday), He is waiting to appear in one’s dream or in some other form and have given many a upadesha through God’s grace.

Seventh Question:
O Sire, during Barani, Krithika stars, Ashtami, Navami Thithi, like said in Shri Hanumath Dasan’s palm leaves that He won’t appear on these dates and even if done, there will be some hinderance or delay. I wanted to start in a specific time and hence I started in Budha Horai. If we avoid Chandra Horai, Shani Horai and when Guru Horai approaches, just like Guru’s presence, just to say that all these happened when the right time comes. I somehow think that if Guru Horai is chosen, everything will be taken care of. Please clarify me this doubt. When you said that You won’t come on Barani, Krithika, Ashtami Navami time period, it doesn’t mean You won’t give your words, but its just that everything happens smooth when Guru’s presence is there. Is this correct?

AA:
What We say through the grace of Almighty is, We do not have anything like Ashtami, Navami, Barani, Krithika or Chandrashtama. All we say is, when a person with patience comes and sits, We are ready to give our words day and night, continuously, if God permits. But to say it frankly, when the person’s karmic effects is still present and when he is asking about worldly things, his accumulated sins already pressing him against progress, to show him a way out, the fate has to allow.

We are only seeing the time just to make a way for him, to get away from his bondings such as karmic effects when he wants to know worldly things. But there is no time limit or anything for knowing the real Gnana!

Question 3:
Om Agatheeswaraya Namaha!

Pranaams to all the elders. I am not sure how to ask, where to begin. A gentleman asked a while back that he needs to have the mindset to ‘seek You’ no matter how many births he may take. Such a noble soul, an elderly person lives in Madurai, near Palanganatham. They are taking care of a Kashi Vishwanathan, Visalakshi Ammai temple. His name is Krishnayya. He has assumed Patanjali Maha Muni as his guru and is teaching Yoga to those good souls who seek his assistance. One such a disciple who learns yoga is Siva Gnanam. An elderly person met Siva Gnanam, took him to a place and asked him to ‘build a temple here’. That place is called Aritta Patti near Madurai. They mention the history of this place. Maharishi Agastya himself had a doubt once as to who His parents were. He knew that only Lord Shiva & Parvathi can clear the doubt and so He did a severe penance to the Divine Parents who appeared and said ‘We are indeed your parents’. Agastya became very pleased and he did the Pradishta of a Shiva Linga there and worshiped).

To construct a temple in such a place, there is a shortage of money and it is very difficult to get it. When will they complete the construction? How will it happen? They say that it came in the “Vishwamitra Nadi” that it will happen under the lead of Krishnayya. Now there are different information coming from Patanjali’s Nadi. Good should happen to those who learn Yoga through Krishnayya and the construction should happen smoothly. It is better if it happens under the lead of Krishnayya. He is teaching the students many a things without any selfish motive. If one noble soul lives peacefully, he/she will ignite many such in their way.

We seek your blessings to have the temple construction for Kashi Vishwanath and Visalakshi happen smoothly, and that the students who learn under Krishnayya should progress well with their lives for good.

AA:

Through the grace of the Lord Almighty, what we say is. The place where the Atma dwells is temple. It is the Lord’s wish too that the humans construct a temple within themselves, within the womb of their mind and to pray to the Lord with pure love. But if such a subtle thing is said, not many will understand. Therefore, the forefather Rishi-Munis made such procedures to build temples externally, to do pooja externally etc. This is carried forward to this date. Some temples become dilapidated. There are subtle reasons for every such thing.

Having said that, to this son’s query, we shall bless that the temple construction to progress, through the grace of Almighty. For every temple to grow (the Maha Muni means the progress of spiritual sanity being more in that temple,  not the commercial aspect of ‘growth’ with loads of Hundi in every corner!) it is enough if spiritual-minded individuals gather together. There should be a connection of spirituality there, it’s enough. The material connection is not a big deal  for it will happen through the grace of God.

In this land of the Tamils lies many a temple for the First One. If those who are connected to the places where those temples are and perform appropriate poojas and begin the task, everything will go smooth. Blessings!

Further to this question. The people of Aritta Patti has come forward to have this temple renovated and have formed a committee where Siva Gnanam is part of. The devotees who want to know the present state and to contribute may contact the Pranava Nadha Saba & The Residents of Aritta Patti here: +91 99524 54869, +91 80151 46989.

Question 4:
There is a Soolagiri Varadaraja Swami temple. Arjuna himself did the pradishtai (installation) of that Swami. It is a Abayahastha type (the temple where the preciding deity’s right hand shows the mudra of Abaya Hasta). [But the temple did not grow much].

AA:
Through the grace of the Lord, all those incidents of Prana happened for true. When suitable time comes, all the growth aspect will happen. One must understand something. A temple’s growth is not as per how humans perceive it. What if many a number of people flock to a temple? Only commercial aspects remain there. Will there be sanity? Just because a temple is not seen or known by many, not many are thinking of that temple’s Lord or visiting that temple does not mean that there is any shortage to that temple. Those who have a spiritual connection to that place, in the appropriate time will come and continue their service. Blessings!

Question 5:

Please forgive me for repeatedly asking the same thing again and again. Without selfish motive, with humanity in heart, for Tamil, the one who grew Tamil, to have established a Sanga for Tamil (Tamil Sangam), the one who lives for Tamil, the Tamil God and the Lord Muruga, who said that Tamil will rule and to have given Tamil the power, let me ask this question:

The Agastya who gave the Kaveri, though created it in what is called as Karnataka now, is blessing many landscape of Tamilnadu. When will this Kaveri issue be solved? I earnestly pray to you. No matter if someone is born in Tamil Nadu or Karnataka, the Mother Ganga herself whose water consumable by anyone in the world has come here as Mother Kaveri, how then can this issue be solved without quarrels, in a peaceful manner? Please let us know, I request this with a common-good-cause in mind.

AA:
We shall say through the grace of the Almighty. O dear! As long as humans live, there will be conflicts and quarrels and problems and complications. The reason may differ as per the time. But the difference of opinion and hatred will continue to exist. As long as the humans develop individual righteousness, culture and attitude, no one can change this present scenario. This is human’s perspective. The human mind will travel as per the fate and karma.

But we always pray to the Lord Almighty that there should be a peaceful world, brotherhood. The people of Tamil Nadu and the people of Karnataka are created by the Lord Himself, just like any other humans. Not just them, everything including the river is created by the Lord Himself. Therefore, there is ‘No one who owns it’, there is No one who is a master and No one who is a slave. Everything is common, this attitude should be cultivated in every individual’s mind.
Though it is very difficult to get such a state of mind, We are ever praying to the Almighty that such a mindset should be present. We shall bless that such a mindset would come!

The GOS 178 – Agastya’s blessings 2 – Vasi Yoga, requesting for a teacher, birth-rebirth…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First question:
Agatheeswaraya Namaha! We visit this Thanjavur Arut Kudil for quite some time. Why? One is to get in the path of salvation. Second, a few troubling issues such as family quarrels, to get rid of diseases etc. We were really tired after searching places for solution and have found that they are either cheat, no truth whatsoever and have come here. Right after coming here, The Maha Muni had showered numerous blessings on me and others. But still, I haven’t tried more subtle things in the spiritual path and neither has Agastya Muni granted them.

If one practices breathing control, Vasi Yoga, Pranayama in the right method, many diseases gets cured. The Siddhas have emphasized about this in many a manuscripts. They said, “even if you walk all the way to Kasi with your legs paining, what’s the use if you don’t learn Vasi?” in a subtle manner, urging us to learn Vasi Yoga. But we haven’t got the suitable teacher yet. We are trying this with whatever ways we know, even half baked and are finding some results. There are some clear merits. Therefore in this Arut Kutil, if a suitable teacher is searched for to teach us this yoga so as to ward off any diseases. People spend enormous amount of money in hospitals, for cancer, but pray, can the Maha Muni help us find a good teacher to teach us and to establish a teaching session?

AA:
Through the grace of Almighty, we speak. From what he said, if we turn Vasi, it is nothing but Pranayama. Do Vasi again and again, which is nothing but Pranayama. One must understand another thing. The people who come seeking help from us build so many remarkable imaginery stories around us (He referred to a display device, such as television and internet). Thinking of which, the people think about such incidents, think about us, believe in us that we will take care of thier problems, and reach here. There is nothing wrong in their beliefs.

But just as an infant has to be taught as per its mental matuirity and receiving capabilities, We offer solutions and practices as per one’s individual maturity and temperament. Therefore for those who come here, until and unless their past karmic effects reduce, it is extremely rare to know anything as Vasi Yoga or other immortal techniques. Else, one can learn these things in places where they are being advertised, but they can learn them only about the size of a mustard seed. If the milk is being heated without the container getting cleaned, the milk is spoiled. Therefore, we are suggested the people who come in search for us about simple remedies, prayers and parikaras than suggesting them complex practices, only to suit their temperaments and karmic effects. Here we say, we said this already and will continue to do so as well, understand this well: Let everyone’s mind act as per their temperament and as per fate or karmic effects. But the human who comes and sits before us thinking that their fate has to change, peace has to settle down in our minds, if he accepts 100% out of 100% as to what we suggest in the Jeeva Nadi, there definitely will be progress step by step through the grace of Almighty.

We ourselves know the progress made by the individual where we shall ourselves teach them the path to salvation when we know that he has had the effects of karma sufficient enough and that he is ready to make progress. We have indeed suggested a few on this. But not a great benefit they reaped as their minds went back to the materialistic plane. Hence, till they reach the unattached state of mind, magnanimous state of mind, till they discard thoughts and attitude of “my house, my family, my wife, my wealth”, they won’t be able to grasp what is Vasi Yoga.

Second question: [[the readers are strongly requested to read this again and again to grasp the depth]]
Om Namah Shivaya!

If said as One, then it’s just One.
If said its many, then it’s many.
If said yes, then it’s yes.

The poet Kamba says the above about realizing the Almighty in the Yuddha Kanta of Kamba-Ramayana. We are but confusing ourselves as ‘lets take this path to salvation, let’s take that one’. Let me put the blame on myself and say ‘I am taking every possible pathways as I can’. For the question of “IS GOD ONE OR MANY”, He clearly mentioned that HE IS ONE IF YOU THINK HE IS ONE, HE IS MANY IF YOU THINK HE IS MANY. If He is one, then it is the Jyotirmay Namah Shivaya, the formless. If I think of You, Shri Agastya, the reader of this Nadi, Shri Ganesan, myself who is seeking an answer, everyone around us, everything to be a particle of that same Para Brahman.

There is but this thought, “I” AM thinking that I am everything and everything is in me” but you are saying that the moment this “I” thought arises, then ‘You are not that’. If I have to leave that “I”, what should I do?

If I have to let go of myself (my ‘self’), how??? What is the method?

Lord Krishna tells Arjuna thus: “There has been never a time where I and you were not present” where He explains the omnipresence. If we assume that all the billions of people were there at all time in the form of Atma, it also means that the cycle of birth and death continues to be present and there is no way we can get rid of that chain. We are keep saying that the bondage of birth cycle should be broken. Is this philosophy true that let us be born again and again and think of the almighty OR to break out of the chain of births and say ‘I’ve become one with God’. In that case, if there is no Almighty to pray to, to praise to, when all the world gets dissolved in to That One during the Maha Pralaya, there is no need of the world as it were, right? Therefore my question is:

Do we need a rebirth, in other words, to be born again and to think of the God Almighty as many say OR to pray for a birthless state?

AA:
Through the grace of Almighty, for his question, we say at the moment: “There is a minister. Let’s say its a very high post. There is a person who used to be the minister’s classmate. Now which one is better? Is it the person saying that the minister was his classmate and his friend or the minister saying this person was my classmate and friend, bring him in? It is better than a man saying I know God, let us not search for God and all. It should be like God saying “There, the one who’s coming, she looks after me as a Mother does” by looking at Karaikkal Ammayar and “There, He is my friend” by referring to Sundarar. It is sufficient if one attains that state where the God Almighty comes Himself to dwell inside. There are countless methods and suggestions on how to reach that state. We are also suggesting some of them through the grace of Lord Almighty for quite a while.

Hence, instead of having thoughts such as birth-rebirth, is God there or not, what to do-what not to do, if one remains as an empty vessel, having surrendered himself totally to the Lord, what to do, when to do, what not to do, everything will be taught to him by the Lord Himself. This is applicable to one and all and not just this one who posted this question. If gold remains under mud and dirt, no one will know its gold. But if made pure, then everyone will know its value. Likewise, the humans’ Atma is covered with dirt such as attachment, Maya, desire, greed etc., If these are left off, everyone has a potential to raise up to the level of divinity.

AA – About marriage getting delayed

The Grace of Siddha series can be read here.

The answers of Agastya Muni to the generic questions posted by devotees can be found here.

Q) Without knowing how to get rid of the sins, we suffer how much ever we could suffer, we lose how much ever we could, and at the end we surrender to Thee. When we do so, if You say, “Go elsewhere”, where else shall we go? This is the place we like. Our beloved Father is you. There are many a girls who cannot get married in spite of reaching the proper age. When we come with this query, you suggest us to perform Abisheka to the Nava Grahas that appear with their spouses and vahanas. We are doing that as well. Please take a pledge today and accept some of our sins yourself. Please get these girls married. O Lord, enough of beating us up. Please embrace us. When are you showing your mercy for these unmarried girls to get this blessing of marriage?

AA)

Through the Almighty’s grace, his question appears strange to Us. He says it is a grief not to get married. If he will ask the married ones, we shall know what grief is. Is it a grief to not to get married or to get married? All those who are married think, “why at all this marriage happened?”. If someone has not married, He still has some grace of God. Why are you so interested in getting someone stuck? We don’t understand.

Know this well. The marriage ceremony will happen to those who has such blessings, at the right time. Many who came here seeking clairvoyance aren’t living peacefully together. Reason? Dosha in Kalathra Sthanam. When this happens, the marriage either gets postponed or does not remain a healthy one.

Marriage hasn’t happened. It must happen, even if it is a painful one, we shall accept, is your claim. He says we asked to pray the Navagrahas with their spouses. That doesn’t mean that if you pray to Lord Ganesha, We aren’t saying that Ganesha Moorthy won’t grace you with a wedding. If you pray to Lord Hanuman, We aren’t saying that Anjaneya Moorthy won’t bless you with marriage. If one shows the horoscope to a learned astrologer, one may know the reason. If you say, only because of all these we have sought Your guidance, can’t You help, can’t You accept our sins etc?

Only because We have accepted the sins, We are answering your questions. We ourselves think that it is our sins that we are talking to the humans. We are not saying this humorously, but psychologically.

Let us assume a person who is in a big status and is very wealthy. You call him and say, “There is this person lying in the roadside with all sorts of diseases. Can you shake hands with him, can you embrace him? He won’t!

We, by the orders of the Lord, all these souls are the creation of the Lord, which are swaying in Maya. We are struggling to remove this Maya for these souls. To answer your question, for your daughter and those girls who are not married, we say, Marriage will happen for sure. There isn’t any change in it. But one has to prepare oneself for this relationship, to cast away some expectations.

Neither God, nor Us created Caste, Creed or Religion!

We belong to this sect. We want a girl / boy only in this sect. If one comes to us with such a query, we seldom pay attention to them. If they say, “my child wants to get married to someone from a different caste / sect, and we are not able to accept it”, we seldom pay attention to such people either. It is only to the humans that you get married to, eh?

If a human gets married to an animal, one can call it ‘inter-caste’ marriage. But for a human to marry another human, the mankind has created so much of obstacles, so much! What can we do about it? It is only the humans who should come out of this. “My daughter is educated and is in a big position. We should get a guy only from a equal status” – the parents and the daughter should discard such thoughts.

“My son is educated. He works in a big company across the ocean and is earning in lakhs. We shall see a girl only that matches with his status” – the boy and his parents should discard such thoughts. If said otherwise that “we will remain just as we are and won’t change”, then fate will do what it will.

First, if one gets rid of mental obstacles, the marriage will happen the next moment. The problem is not with getting married. How many live peacefully and in accordance post marriage? This is the problem. We say now. If looked at the Seventh and Eighth position (in the horoscope), the detail of marriage will be known very well. So, no need to worry that marriage is getting delayed. They may later realize that it is better if the marriage did not happen at all, than getting delayed. However, there are many a temples which nullifies the dosha related to marriage. Those who cannot afford visiting those, can simply do this:

“By getting up early in Fridays, which is called as Shukravaar, cleanse their house, pray to Shukra and other Grahas, pray to Mata Mahalakshmi, for 120 days if they do this with full focus and in these 120 days, if they help other poor people in their marriages, they will surely get married within 120 days. We can only say this. Whether the marriage will happen as per the person’s expectations, it depends on his / her fate.

AA – What is Dheeksha

AA) Through the grace of Almighty, what appears to be fair for man need not have to be the same for God. “I am good indeed. Why am I keep suffering? I don’t seem to get the fair piece? I don’t seem to have got the justice..” – he may think. But the yardstick of the Lord never goes wrong. Without any reason, nothing else ever happens. Still, for this person, it is good if he visits a temple of Lord Karthikeya on every Tuesdays and prays to Him earnestly. It is also good if he visits the temple at a place called Siruvai.


 

AA) Through the grace of Almighty, a proper guidance, suggestive pointing can also be taken as a Dheeksha. But what really is the meaning for the word Dheeksha? (When written this word in Tamil, the syllable sounds like Theeksha, thee meaning fire), the syllable “Thee” is about destroying. It means “to destroy the evil thoughts, maya, sins” and to lift oneself up, is Dheeksha. But for the spiritual, it is rare to see the one with destructive powers. Even if they do, without God’s grace, they won’t give Dheeksha. The people who receive Dheeksha may assume that it is a sort of direction being given. Better still, We seldom agree that a person will get God’s grace only after getting such Dheeksha. If one person prays to God with a truly true heart, devotion and his mind always pointed to the Almighty, if he prays to the Lord in the form he likes, calls Him with the naama (holy name) he likes, for sure he will get God’s grace. It is not necessarily that he has to be given a Dheeksha to get the Almighty’s grace.

AA – Witch-craft, is this true?

Q) Are the witch-crafts true? If so, what is the remedy for these?

AA) Through God’s grace, We have explained about this many a times. But still, We shall answer for his (the one who asked the question) sake.

Out of the four Vedas, there is Atharvana Veda. It has many such explanations about this. Generally, fire can be used to cook, but it can also be used to burn a house. Likewise, the Rishi-Munis who were performing Tapas in solitude, mostly in forests, they wanted to protect themselves against wild animals, thieves etc., so they can focus on the task at hand, they shield themselves with such mantras. That was their primary use.

But here’s our human greediness and selfishness, they want to use these mantras to trouble others. There are very few who mastered such mantras. Though it is true that there are effects on these, one should understand something. If one’s karmic effects has destined him in his horoscope to undergo the effects of such things, such effect will be there. But what does one think? If he suffers for more than twice on anything, he begins to think, “Someone surely has done witch-craft” , and there are always people who take advantage of such fears, and they loot money from such men.

So as said before, whether it is there or not, if one does not fear them and walks the path of dharma, remains devoted to God and increases his dharmic activities, there won’t be any such effect on that man.

But still, if one thinks that there is such an effect on him, and should escape this, one can pray to Mata Pratyangira. They could pray to Lord Narasimha and get rid of it. They could pray to Sharabeswara and get rid of it. In that land called Parasurama Kshetra (Kerala), one can pray to Mata, that too on a Pournami Day (Full Moon day), and get benefitted. Those who focus on such prayers, and those who can afford, can perform yagnas on these devatas said above every six months or so, to get rid of these effects.

AA – About effects of Grahas

Q) The children born of Raghu Dasha, Shani dasha, Angaraka dasha etc., they seldom listen to their parents and end up getting in to bad routes. What parikara can be done for this?

AA) Through the grace of God, we frequently suggest, let’s just say that the Nava Grahas are like a honest officers. It is sinful to name a Graha as good graha or bad graha. They just perform their duties as per the Almighty’s orders. So as per one’s fate, whatever has to come comes. When one gets all success, fame and good comfort, no one rejects it. But when situation turns upside down, they scream, “O God! I cannot bear this for the Grahas are making me suffer!” Eh!

There is a saying, “Let me say it now itself for I may not be able to say it then” (Saying here refers to praising the Lord’s name and showing devotion). The grahas can operate on an individual only based on his good and bad deeds done in the past. They can operate therefore, only on his ignorance. Instead of praying to God for, “God, make me debt free, make my children live well, give me great health and so on, if one prays “O God, please remove my ignorance. Please provide me thy knowledge”, most of the problem gets solved right there.

Even the Yogis have the effects of grahas, both good and bad. Even Man does. Even the Gnani does, and so does the ignorant. The Gnani does not weep on bad. Only the ignorant does. Since everyone cannot become a Gnani in the first step itself, We suggest them certain things, most of the time only straight forward measures. But the effects of Grahas based on one’s merits and de-merits are there so, at times we suggest certain shortcuts.

How much ever explanation shall be given, as this lady asked (the one who raised this question), the generalization that the 7.5 years’ effect of Shani, the effect of Ashtama Shani, Arthashtama Shani’s effect, Ragu, Ketu directions are all giving only bad effects – we seldom accept this. One can even get a good experience and Gnana out of this. To cut it short, what We say, on such occasions, man should not lose hope, and visit a temple at least once in a day and lit up a ghee deepa (lamp). Those who cannot perform even this, should at least cleanse themselves physically and mentally and spend at least two and a half Nazhigai in devotion that they could. Particularly, Navagraha Athi Devatha prayers.

Next, those who are in such situations, and those who can afford, they could assume that they’re procuring for the need of their families, and instead of getting a new house or a vehicle for themselves, if they spend the same amount to suitable temples, or to a needy poor, we say for sure, these dasha-budhi’s will not harm that individual much.

Let’s say it short. One has a few lakhs of savings. He thinks that he should buy a new house. We don’t say it’s wrong. He thinks that it will be good if he owns a house. But ‘this’ time is not suitable for it. What if he still buys it? All sorts of trouble crop out due to that house. The money will be spent unnecessarily. But on the other hand, if he spends that money on the good cause of others, like the ones above, the effect of dasha-budhi reduces greatly. There won’t be a great danger to him or his children due to this. This is one good but short method. But what does a man think? He thinks he is smart and he keeps on saving his money. He saves Gold and he keeps on buying land and houses saying that the price is ever increasing.

But what we say, if he remains content and spends for others who are in need magnanimously, we say for sure through the grace of God, there won’t be any effects of Grahas on him. That one who has done as equivalent to the peak of dhana-dharma, the grahas won’t have an impact on him completely. He may suffer the effects of his bad karma, but it is borne by the dharma he did thereby, he may not feel that he is undergoing the trouble.
