DEDICATE THIS EXPERIMENT TO OTHERS

The Places that Scare You

by Pema Chödrön, pages 1–2

"We can begin anything we do—start our day, eat a meal, or walk into a meeting—with the intention to be open, flexible, and kind. Then we can proceed with an inquisitive attitude.

As my teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche used to say, "Live your life as an experiment.”

At the end of the activity, whether we feel we have succeeded or failed in our intention, we seal the act by thinking of others, of those who are succeeding and failing all over the world. We wish that anything we learned in our experiment could also benefit them."

BPL Commentary * bhava-11

Vriddhi-bhava

"birth place of increasing".

Vriddhi-bhava = Shani's swabhava co-ruled by Rahu . Any activity of the rule-breaker rogue Rahu in bhava-11 is usually profitable if not always legitimate. Bhava-11 is the only sthana in which all of the papa-graha = Surya, Mangala, Shani, and Rahu = do a good job.

The marketplace is built upon a complex infrastructure of social relationships, a rule-driven system governed by multiple levels of law and policy.

Yet due to Rahu's influence, the type of risk which is not allowed in conservative bhava-10 is encouraged in universal bhava-11.

Vriddhi-bhava = increasing scope of goals and achievements. Here both are permitted: Shani's inflexible rules of scientific system-maintenance and the convention-penetrating innovative pursuits of Mangala which extends the reach of the economic rules.

economies, connections, webs, assemblies, the marketplace, the electorate, the masses, collectivity, Large Groups, social movements, goal-oriented social activism, social participation, principled communal living, regulated lateral systems, associative distribution networks

The Mark (marche, market) = common low pastureland + water-well in ancient village structure where folks come to meet (e.g., Kumbh = coomb = hollow, low place),

common-wealth, marché, market, market value, market economy, marketplace, mapped pathways

mercatus, merchandise, to march, to mark, to measure, the Mark (unit of market currency)

arena, assembly, agora (the low Shani place where people gather in common)

Gains, Goals, And the Achievement of Objectives = "the Take"

Outcome, results, returns, progress, profits, fruition

infrastructure, development of regulated linkage, Opportunity, interlocking sets of friends, elder sibling, father's brothers, mentors

income via any marketplace channel: rents, royalties, dividends, bonus, salary

bhava-11 = house of Shani = Lawful

Natural Communities by 11th-from-Lagna


Community, income, friendships: earnings, salary, friends, science, income, profits; networks (cosmic, conceptual, electronic and social); goals and accomplishments, large gatherings, large groups; ideologies and social connections . Fifth marriage.

Das commentary : IF

11 has at least one beneficial placement attribute.

and 11 has at least one beneficial placement attribute.

If there is an elder sibling,

they may be very successful and be of help to you."

It Matters Who Your Friends Are

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

  • Lighting the Way, pages 31-32.

"In relation to the attainment of liberation from cyclic existence, which is known also as "definite goodness "; the role of other sentient beings is indispensable.

In the Buddhist understanding, the key spiritual practices that lead to the attainment of liberation are the Three Higher Trainings:

  • higher training in morality,
  • in meditation,
  • and in wisdom.

The last two are based upon the foundation of the first, namely the training in morality.

  • As I said before, the presence of other sentient beings is indispensable for this training.

This is how we come to the powerful realization that the role of other sentient beings is essential in all areas of our mundane and spiritual activities."

"Your friends are God's way of apologizing for your family."
B.V. Raman.300 Important Combinations . #59. Vidyuta Yoga:

Definition -

When the 11th lord is in deep exaltation

and joins Venus in a Kendra from the lord of the lagna ,

  • Vidyut Yoga is caused.

Results:

  • Charitable, pleasure-loving,

  • a treasurer or controller of financial wealth

  • and a great king or an equal to him

Remarks:

  • Depending upon the exact strength of the two lords causing the yoga,

    • the person either be a king or equal to him.

    He will control wealth and he will be a man of generous instincts.

Here Venus, the 11th lord and Lord of Lagna are required to be disposed in a particular manner.

Venus is the planet of pleasure and comforts, whereas the lord of the 11th indicates gains.

Naturally when the Lagna is strong,

  • and the house of gains and lord of comforts and luxuries is equally strong,

  • one is bound to be well off in life

View of"Labha" or [the extent to which the native is]making a favorable turn, meeting, and gaining permission:

  1. 11th house from radix lagna; L-11

  2. 11th- from- Chandra (gains on basis of mother, gains on basis of emotional disposition)

  3. 11th-from-11th, or Dharma Bhava

  4. Radix (D-1) planets in Kumbha (Aquarius)

  5. 11th-from-Saturn

  6. Radix Vriddhipathi-11 within navamsha

  7. 11th from Surya (gains on basis of father, gains on basis of creative performance)

-- Madhya Parashari, Ch. 9, Shloka 11

"The eleventh house for gains;

elder brother [sibling];

ears; and thigh."

-- BPHS Ch. 7,

Shloka 39-43

"Whatever effects are to be known from .. Labha Bhava be also known from similar bhavas counted from Surya. ...

-- BPHS Ch. 7,

Shloka 39-43

Whatever results are to be known from ... Labha, ... should also be known from the ... 11th... from Chandra respectively."

Gains and Income; Fruition

11 = Kumbha = distributive and associative networks = economies of all types (not only financial).

  • A foremost signification of labha bhava is however the financial economy = the marketplace , with all the gains of association which come through interconnections of people with similar interests.

  • Labha bhava is responsible for all forms of gains and income. Method of income may be salary, commission, rents, royalties, or any other gainful means.

bhava-2"stored wealth" vs. bhava-11"income stream "

  • bhava-11 = sources of financial well-being or revenue streams; earnings;

    money coming in.

  • bhava-2 = capital, or cattle. Skandha. Static, hoarded, or banked savings . Food reserves. Money or values historically preserved by one's family history. Includes wealth stored in traditions of art, music, theatre, and craft.

  • Along with the relationship with domains 5, 9, and 1 (which determine past-life credit), the relationship between bhava-11 and bhava-2 (sources and resources) determines the total wealth situation.

H opes, Dreams, Wishes, Desires, Attainments

Labha bhava is all about PERMISSION, the right to enter, right to communicate, right to circulate, right to gain information. It is the house of ambitions and aspiration, manifestation and achievement. The seed energy of all manifestation is the wish, hope, desire, or dream that gets it all started.

Good planets in labha bhava show the type and quality of permission in the person's life. When karmic permission levels are high, the person will experience satisfaction of their needs, and gaining of pleasure.


uttama-Budha in labha gives unlimited permission to gain system-related information regarding every variety of economy = social, financial, conceptual, biological, etc. Also, grants a network of highly communicative, well-connected, often mentally gifted friends.

uttama-Shani in 11th makes a tremendously hard worker who holds a dedicated commitment to improve one's material circumstances. Through significant effort, one obtains significant material gains.

Rahu-11 in almost any rashi much amplifies the ambition for material gain, and exaggerates the desire to associate with persons from a diverse variety of demographic backgrounds. Major gains of income during Rahu periods.

Rahu-11 is strongest when in His uttamaza = Vrishabha rashi

pinched graha in Labhasthana show the person lacks permission even to wish for better things. Without the initiating desire, nothing happens.

Cramped conditions in labha-bhava give poor circulation in the physical body and also in the marketplace, resulting in limited flow of resources, especially information.

E lder siblings, Experienced Mentors, Predecessors

bhava-11 = one's Immediate elder Sibling and father's younger brother, as well as "those who have gone before" who are just slightly ahead of one on life's path.

  • Guru and professors who speak as more distant moral authorities giving philosophical wisdom belong to dharma bhava. Financial and social advisors giving elder-sibling type of advice are found in bhava-11.

  • 11 = 3rd-from-9th = elder siblings (at least in traditional societies) are seen by their younger brothers and sisters as being"brothers to the father" in the sense of being more senior in social status. Father's "brothers ",ay also include father's colleagues as well as his younger siblings "uncle" who traditionally assume a mentoring or advising role toward father's sons.

If Vriddhipathi-11 is strong and well-placed , the immediate elder sibling can be a very helpful person in one's life, particularly in matters of gain in the marketplace.

However if Vriddhipathi-11 = uttama or otherwise exceptionally strong, the native is often oneself the eldest.

One may have well-placed friends, and gain substantially from the matters signified by that exalted graha.

  1. For Mithunaya lagna, uttama-Surya gains through leadership, gamesmanship, charisma, celebrity, politics and theatre

  2. For Karkata lagna, uttama-Chandra gains through economics of nurture, shelter, schooling, care-taking, protection, parenting, patriotism, foundations

  3. For Meena lagna, uttama-Kuja gains through economic competition, championship, athleticism, pioneering, invention

  4. For Vrizchika lagna, uttama-Budha gains through speech and writing; discrimination and distinction; logical argument; logistical planning; medicine and physicians

  5. For Kanya lagna, uttama-Guru gains through housing and real estate;

  6. For Vrishabha lagna, uttama-Zukra gains through music and fine arts

  7. For Dhanuzya lagna, uttama-Shani gains through social justice, government, diplomacy and institutionalizing fair processes.

Kumbha-1 can become independently financially privileged if both bhava (3) and (11) are powerful.

Friends , Friendliness, Networks human and technological

"Kumb" means "low place, hollow, flatland, broadland"

Naturally the marketplace is a gathering arena for friends.

  • Labha bhava/Aquarius rules acquaintances, social gatherings, agreements between friends, community activities, development work, and networks of all kinds (including electro-magnetic device networks like computer, telephone, internet, etc.)

bhava-11 rules free associations, networking, setting and achieving goals, and the marketplace of good and ideas.

Labha-sthana is Shani's bhava but it is oh-so important to remember that bhava-11 is co-ruled by Renegade Rahu the Opportunist.

  • The marketplace is built upon a large and regular but highly complex infrastructure of social relationships.

  • A rule-driven system governed by multiple levels of ordered principles, law and policy.

Due to Rahu's influence, risk which is not allowed in bhava-10 is encouraged in bhava-11. Vriddhi-bhava = goals and achievements, involving both inflexible rules of science and the extension of rule-driven connectivity which permits access to those who understand the rules of the system.

Vriddhisthana = site of social participationvia extension of lawful opportunity to participate which is granted to previously unconnected classes of ideas, people, behaviors, and objects.

Appreciation for the Sangha


14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso . (2001).

  • An Open Heart: Practicing Compassion in Everyday Life .

  • Nicholas Vreeland (Ed.), afterword by Khyongla Rato and Richard Gere.

"As our understanding and faith in the Dharma grows,

  • we develop an appreciation for the Sangha ,

  • the individuals, both past and present,

  • who have attained such states of freedom from suffering.

We can then conceive of the possibility

  • of a being who has attained total freedom from the negative aspects of mind: a Buddha.

And as our recognition of the miserable nature of life develops,

  • so does our appreciation of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha

  • - the Three Jewels in which we seek shelter.

This intensifies our quest for their protection."
