Combinations for Love Marriage...1

I know this is quite an interesting topic to discuss. Many people who are in an affair/relationship would like to know about their future whether they will be able to get married to the partner of their choice. So here is what I have learnt from different sources. Note that these combinations just indicate a love marriage and do not ensure the marital bliss or stability of marriage there after. That is a further topic and depends on totally different factors.

1. Overall the benefics (Moon, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter) must be well placed. Atleast one of these must be well placed, preferably in center (houses 1,4,7,10) or corner (1,5,9). The Lord of the ascendant must also be strong.

2. Venus naturally signifies Love and Relationship. If it is the master of 5th house (the house of romance), it will give you a romantic nature and a good chance to indulge in romance in your life. 

3. If the Venus as the master of 5th house is present in 7th house, your romantic relationship will culminate in marriage, specially if master of 7th house is under aspect of/in conjunction with Venus.

The Nine Auspicious Nights of The Divine Mother...2

Now coming to the things that can be done in these 9 days, to the extent you can do, and everything is not essential; the most important requirement is just your faith, and you can worship the Divine Mother only with bare hands and a clean heart and a focused mind, just on Her! I have tried to put just the most minimal stuff...

1. Establish a Kalash if you can. The method is here:

Read the following Kalash Prarthana, 3 times daily. If you can't establish the Kalash, just read the below Kalash Prarthana.

2. Alight a Deepak/Lamp with the  pure ghee of cow. Take care that it is big enough and it does NOT go off for 9 days. You must realize that it must be big enough such that it can hold good amount of ghee and you will have to refill it again and again. If it goes off, read the Saptshloki Durga 3 times and refill. Let it go off on its own on the 10th day.

3. Read the following in the Durga Saptshati:

a) Saptshloki Durga

b) 108 names of Durga Maa
c) Argala Srotram
d) Siddhkujikastotram
e) Khsama Prarthna

You can add the Kilak and the Devi Kavach also if you want to.

f) Read the chapters such that they will finish in 9 nights. Also, please read the comments section. 

4. Meditate on the Divine Mother. This helps a lot. You must seek to establish connection with the Divine Mother. Also, you can practice tratak with the mother's photo.

If you have special desires in your life you can undertake the following:

1. During the day and night read the Saptshloki Durga and 108 names of Durga Maa 8 times or 24 times or even 108 times. This works, and works fast.

Please refer to the below pic for specific reason why you would wish to chant a mantra:

2. You can also chant the Laxmi Gayatri Mantra - 5*108 times or may be 11*108 times. Use a Tulsi mala.

3. If you want to pursue higher studies chant the above mantra 5*108 times or 11*108 times you can read the Saraswati Mantra mentioned above.

4. On the same lines you can chant a mantra for getting married. Note that the mantra is different for boys and girls!

If you are extremely desperate for something in your life, these 9 nights come in as a boon in your life. Desperation easily brings in tears in eyes and if your heart is pure and you have faith in Divine Mother's love, powers and help, cry before her. Cry with tears! There is a very good chance that you will get what you want. 

What NOT to do during these 9 days/nights:

1. Avoid indulging in any sort of sensual pleasures during this time.

2. Don't plan a child conception during this time. Please read the following post: 

3. This period is not meant for any celebrations/parties etc. Avoid them altogether.

Before I end, I must add this too - during these 9 days, you can carry out something special for your Ishta Dev too. I have explained about Ishta Dev in the below post:

The Nine Auspicious Nights of The Divine Mother...1

Before you start reading this please note that Respected Mr. Pawan Sinha is organizing a Mahayagya for Pitru Dish Nivaran in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh on Oct 15, 2012. Please use this opportunity:

This year Navratri (the 9 days of worship of Divine Mother) will start from Oct 15, 2012 (In India at around 6pm in the evening on this date, you can find the dates relevant your location based on the time difference) I thought of jotting down my thoughts and the things that I have learnt from Mr. Pawan Sinha's lectures so that people reading this blog can be benefited. I found following links on the Internet which depict the importance of the Navratri. Please go through them to better understand Navratri and its importance:

Even though one of the articles mentions that Navratri occurs twice the year (once in March-April and other in September-October), I must make it clear that actually it occurs 4 times. The other two occur in January-February and June-July. These are called Gupt (Secret) Navratras. For the exact dates, please refer a panchang or a ephemeris. They are no less than in significance, but just less known. 

I would also like to mention here that even though these nine nights people worship the Divine Mother in various forms, they can do some other things too. For example, one entire reading of SriRamCharitManas could also be done. The book has divisions such as it can be finished in 9 days.

These 9 days are very very important, specially if you are facing major hurdles in your life due to malefic planets. If you have problems arising from Pitru Dosh or other doshas in your chart, this is the time that you can utilize to please ALL, and this 'all' includes all! Many entangled issues of your life can be straightened. If you have a burning desire to achieve something in life, you can pray for that, and there is a good chance that you will get it. But the desire must be legible.

Pitru Dosh and Pitru Paksha

Before you start reading this please note that Respected Mr. Pawan Sinha is organizing a Mahayagya for Pitru Dish Nivaran in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh on Oct 15, 2012. Please use this opportunity:

I thought that I will put one more post on Pitru Dosh. The reason is that Pitru Paksha is starting on September 30, hence I just wanted to put forth the idea that it is the best period when we can offer goodies to our ancestors! 

Following can be undertaken during the period of 15 days following September 30:

1. The chanting of Vishnu Sahasranaam must be done in your home, daily. If chanting is not possible then play it on CD player/mobile phone etc. so that all can listen to it. Do this daily 2 times, morning and evening.

2. Visit the temples which are beside the river Ganga. For example you can visit Bithoor (north of Kanpur city in Uttar Pradesh) and offer obeisances (tarpan) to your ancestors. Give away/offer as much as possible to the needy and poor people in the name of your ancestors. Distribute the water of river Ganga to your friends/relatives and acquaintances.

3. Carry out the ritual mentioned in the below post:

4. Chant the following 2 mantras daily 108 times made of turmeric (haldi) beads and if possible 5*108 times, facing South:

First remember your ancestors, whoever you remember and also others.

Om Graam Greem Graum Sah Guruve Namah 


Om Pitra Devaya Namah Om Pitra Shanti Bhavah

5. Offering tarpan is extremely important during this period. Please do that.

Pitru Dosh...4

In the following posts I will enlist some remedies for Pitru Dosh.

1. The most widely accepted special ritual or puja for Pitru Dosh is NARAYAN BALI PUJA. This puja is performed only at few prescribed places such as (1) Tryambakeshwar in Nasik, (2) Chandod near Dabhoi near Vadodara in Gujarat, (3) Kala Hasti in Tamil Nadu and (4) Haridwar. It is very important to note that the puja have to be performed at the mentioned places.

2. On any Somwati Amavasya, when the Amavasya is falling on Monday, go to Pipal tree. Offer one Yagyopavit to the tree and second Yagyopavit to Lord Vishnu. Then do 108 Parikrama ( move in circles around ) of tree. While doing Parikrama, chant the mantra Om Namo Bhaagvate Vaasudevaay and offer a sweet to the tree with each Parikrama. After finishing the Parikrama, again pray to the Pipal tree and Lord Vishnu and ask forgiveness.

3.   For this remedy, One Madhuroopen Rudraksh is required. This puja is done only in Pitru Paksh (in 2012 it starts on Sunday September 16). Put the Rudraksh in a plate. Start chanting Om Namah Shivay mantra for 108 times while continuously looking at the Rudraksh. Perform this process for all the 14 days of Pitru Paksh. On the Sarva Pitru Amavasya, wear the Rudraksh around the neck using black thread. This will get rid of Pitru Dosh.
