We descend on the regions of this perishable and illusionary world to suffer and bear the fruits of our past and present karmas. The threads of destiny are intricately woven in the cycle of life and death creating a jigsaw puzzle.
From times immemorial mankind has been seeking answers and solutions to this puzzle, trying to rid itself of the past and its load of karmas.
Beset with this task, we are constantly searching for ways to avoid the hurdles in our path of leading a happy and content life. And there is no dearth of men (and women) who are glad to offer us this life of happiness and contentment by way of astrological remedies.
What are astrological remedies?
In simple words, they are our attempt to alter our destiny by changing the affects that planets cast on us. We try to rearrange what has been arranged by the destiny for us. But does it really work the way we want it to. A majority of people who believe in Indian astrology refuse to believe the efficacy of the remedial measures it has to offer.
What puts a question mark on the true nature of these remedies is the fact that astrology itself is a discipline which can interpret and guide, but cannot interfere.
The timing of the events cannot be disturbed. A certain event can neither be created nor it can be nullified, certain things like death are inevitable and can’t be dislocated from their place.
Correct Way of Determining Remedy
An astrologer needs to do a point by point investigation of the person’s conception graphs (natal chart) to give the right cures for his issues. They need to act like an expert specialist and treat the individual as patient. We should say that a local comes to you with an issue of not able to increase considerable measure riches. Presently the issue has parts, they must have the capacity to profit and additionally they must have the capacity to collect loads of riches by fitting reserve funds or speculations. What in the occasion you suggest a medicine, which will help him, gain heaps of cash by making a particular planet stronger? In any case imagine a scenario in which that planet is terrible for collecting riches. By suggesting that medicine you made positive that they will acquire loads of cash however won’t have the capacity to spare or contribute it appropriately. That individual will clearly return later on and say that the medication sometimes met expectations. The right method for proposing the medication is as takes after.
• First determine the overall bad and good effects of all planets in the chart.
• Next determine the strength of all those planets.
• Then determine what is causing the trouble, is it a weak but good planet or a strong but malefic planet. If both of the above cases are present then choose the weak but the good planet for remedy. If weak but good planet is picked for remedy, determine if that planet is capable of producing bad effects for any house.
• Check the strength of that house, if the house is strong proceed, otherwise also include in your remedy the good planet for that chart to protect that house. If strong but malefic planet is picked up for remedy, determine if that planet (especially the houses on which that planet lords over) is good for any house.
• Repeat the same check as explained above to make the affected house stronger.
• Finally check the dasha scheme, check the relationship of the planet with the dasha lord and see if they are compatible. If not compatible then suggest a remedy for the dasha lord instead of the planet in question.
• As you will notice the results vary chart to chart. That is why no treatment works the same way for all the people. Cures do work, but select the right treatment takes actual skill and years of experience.
The Astrological Remedies can broadly be broken up in three parts:
Mantra – It is the recitation of a specific sound repeatedly to overcome the issues set forth by the planet, which responds to that particular sound. The basis of mind in its aim & structural aspect is the power inherent in different combinations of sounds. How consciousness differentiates in to different states of mind is a fascinating query & is impossible to know in the actual sense until they can raise our consciousness to the level where this differentiation takes place & the manner in which it is brought about. Each root word generates a sound that activates a different centre in the human body that correlates to the particular planet
Tantra – Sometimes when the Mantra does not work because of difficult malefic position of planets in a horoscope in that case Tantric sound patterns work like surgical procedure and clear most of the hurdles.
Yantra – This is a Mystic diagram often put up as a plaque. Some Yantra are an element of Tantra practice since Yantra is of the cardinal principles of Tantra. This practice is followed when a specific treatment has to be practiced over a long time period and the person is unable to perform other remedial measures due to ill health, lack of time or distance.
Remedies such as Vedic mantras & yoga’s can only amplify or minimize the nice & bad affects of the planets. Ambiguity is associated with other treatments such as gemstones, which are not simple to recommend. There are 16 divisional charts which need to be assessed before a gemstone is prescribed to an individual. The divisional chart D-30 needs to be examined as well before a gemstone is prescribed to someone.
Also they see that a single treatment does not suit every.
Our 5th house is the house of past karmas and it is the nature of your past karmas which select the severity of the ill effects of your fate and also the extent to which the treatment will be useful.
The strength of the 5th house thus becomes a decisive factor in determining whether the treatments will actually be able to do their job or not.
The question that arises is,” Is it right to re- write?”
Changing the course of destiny is like challenging the will of God, to what extent we can do that and succeed is still a mystery. However, what really work are prayers, our faith and our willingness to do good for fellow human beings.
