We live in a World full of adversities, pain and agonies. Day in and day out we feel the burnt of the blazing realities. We all face that enigma – inexorably, unwaveringly, without a quiver, straight as a sword to pierce the heart of falsehood. Lots of question circle our mind. Is it possible for this body, which is at present our means of terrestrial manifestation, to transform itself progressively into something capable of expressing a higher life or will we have to abandon this form altogether and enter another that does not yet exist on earth? Will there be continuity or the sudden appearance of something new? Will there be progressive transition between what we are now and what our inner spirit aspires to become, or will there be a break, which means being obliged to discard this present human form and waiting for the appearance of the new form – an appearance whose process we do not foresee and which will have nothing in common with what we are now?

Lots and Lots of thoughts play in the small brain. After the expiry of my father Prof Prodip Mazumder on 5th April, 2020, I had started understanding the concept connecting oneself to that higher consciousness which led to me understand that in Hindu religion Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar are the three powers which are aligned with each other. Each subsides amongst one another. I have understood in my own personal analysis that no one (Tridev) is great or strong, but each have their own importance. The Vedas have wonderful illustrations on ancient Gods and I felt that importance is given to ‘Agni’ the God of Fire, ‘Indra’, The God of Thunder, ‘Varuna’, The all pervading vastness and ‘Apas’, the God of water. As I try to understand the beautiful connections, I also came to my own conclusion from my research that ‘Adi Shakti’ or Mother ‘Bhvanesvari’ or ‘Prakriti’ (Nature) is the Mother of these beautiful creation. In many ancient religions, the role of Mother is very significant. Hence, in my own personal analysis, eternal Mother is the source of all creation. The questions are many, but the answer is one. It’s the mother. It’s from here the flow of energy starts and its here it stops.

A Day may come when She must stand unhelped
On a dangerous brink of the World’s doom and hers
Carrying the World’s future on her lonely breast,
Carrying the Human hope in a heart left sole
To conquer or fail on a last desperate verge.
Alone with death and close to extinction’s edge,
Her single greatness in that last dire scene,
She must cross alone a perilous bridge in Time
And reach an apex of World –Destiny
Where all is won or all is lost for human.
– (Sri Aurobindo)

Spiritualism starts from the same mother and encircles her and fades into her. She is the root and she is the end. Discussions within oneself and that Eternal Mother helps one to understand that almighty powers are shut in Nature’s cells. One day, my soul queried for an answer to her sayings and she replied:

It’s all Shakti (Universal Power). She said that it is the foundation of the ‘oneness’ of all human beings and vainly do we try to equate it with equations, fraternity or machines. We are those tools of that force (Shakti), whom we do not know, but it knows us and wishes us a little more joy, if we would consent to let it do its work, instead of constantly interfering with our own ideas, which as we are beginning to realize, saves nothing, knows nothing and can do nothing.

It was Rudyard Kipling, who once said that:
‘If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o’mine, O mother o’mine!
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o’mine, O mother o’mine!’

Once I recall that my mother said to me to get out of that little shell, in which I am perfectly confined, just bumping here and there- as moths bump in front of an illuminated object. Our consciousness and thoughts is just like that small animal, bumping here and there to reach that eternal light. Bumping is useless, the real knowledge lies in entering things, to widen us as we have air to breathe, space to move and we longer bang into things and thus we live in many places at the same time. That’s what in simple terms spiritualism is; which I learned from Mother and it started from there and will end there.

Please Note: The Views above are entirely personal and is a analysis based on my recent reading on ancient scriptures. This may not be an astrology article but I deeply feel that it’s connected. To me personally, there is nothing right, nothing wrong. This write-up is to just to increase our inner power to get connected to the higher consciousness.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 47: PLANET MERCURY AND YOUR DECISIONS IN LIFE – A VEDIC ASTROLOGICAL ANALYSIS

green_world

As the world grows, so is communication. In many countries earlier, people use to send messages through horses, birds, messengers and through telegrams. As the world moved ahead, we post letters through Post Offices and Couriers. Today in this high communication small world, we do not have to post letters, as its just a ‘click’ away from the other person. With Social Media, emails and other electronic forms of messages, we not only send our thoughts in seconds but also speak to the individual live!

What an innovation boom, where we can speak and see another person through social media in just a ‘click’! In astrology all sorts of communication are due to the astrological planet Mercury. That’s why people having an excellent Mercury position in the Lagna chart are great Orators. We just listen to these speakers and feel like as if the communication should go on and on…

Mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system and moves in greater speed than any other planets and hence the natives with well placed Mercury can think fast and make indelible work for society through their great ideas. Mercury is the smallest and innermost planet in the Solar System. Its orbital period around the Sun of 87.97 days and is the shortest of all the planets in the Solar System. Mercury, the messenger of the Gods is named after a Roman Deity. Mercury orbits the Sun within Earth’s orbit and never exceeds 28 degree away from the planet Sun. When viewed from Earth, this proximity to the Sun means the planet can only be seen near the western or eastern horizon during the early evening or early morning.

Mercury represents many sectors starting from Trade, Communication, Intellect and all forms of write-ups etc, but the most important thing that this planet represents is about Clue’s to one’s problems. A well-placed Mercury will provide one with the necessary types of intellect through which one gets over situations and that’s where one comes out in flying colour. Mercury provides sudden ideas based on which one moves ahead in life. Suppose, you are into a job for many years and struggling to make a mark and suddenly, one moment, you find that an idea that made you think differently, helped you to do things unique and thus move ahead in life. Well, to my experience there can be two planets attached in such types of phenomenon’s i.e planet Uranus and Rahu. These planets provide sudden thoughts which leads to great innovations.

But there is a difference between the thoughts shared by Planet Rahu and Planet Uranus with that of Planet Mercury. The basic difference lies in the fact that Planet Mercury may provide Ideas which can make you get success in your daily life, either in your career or business, but Planet Rahu produces a thought, which changes the world and so is with Uranus. Hence, Planet Mercury plays a very important role in one’s life as it’s the giver of IDEAS and intelligence. It shows the way forward in difficult times. There are many humans whose Planet Mercury is not in good position and struggles to get more of life, even if they may have the best education, qualification and schooling. If you have to move ahead in life, strengthen your planet Mercury in the basic horoscope chart. These can be done by loving environment, the greenery, connecting yourself with Nature, breathing in pure air (by that I mean, Air free from pollution), Understanding your connect with this Mother Earth etc.

Planet Mercury plays a very important part in one’s life as it rules the nervous system. Hence by strengthening one’s Mercury one can also strengthen ones decision making process and thus move ahead in life. Thank you for taking your time and reading this article. I look forward to your comments, if your time permits.
