BPL commentary: For Magha nativities, the condition of Ketu considerably affects the outcome

"A proud but not an arrogant nature

  • poised, self-contained and dignified.

  • this man will command respect because of his quiet dignity of manner and bearing.

His position in his community will be secure

  • and his financial standing sound.

His weakness, however, is his susceptibility to the blandishments of the opposite sex.

He must avoid entanglements

  • which might lead to a loss of dignity,

  • since, to this man, such a loss would be a tragedy."

About speculative birth times:

Caution must be observed when deploying a speculative birth time! Predictions based upon Vimshottari Dasha require accurate birth time


Little Dalai Lama * age 4, Kumbum Monastery

A case can be carefully built for using a speculative birth time by proving multiple correspondences between expected planetary results and known events in the native 's life. This proving process is easier for a public figure such as Tenzin Gyatso whose adult life is chronicled in detail.

This analysis uses public information about Tenzin Gyatso's dangerous teenage trans-Himalayan flight from Chinese military invaders, and later famous international honors.

It would be easier if H.H. were a movie star or a politician because there would be newspaper records of marriage, children, and winning elections! However even the life of a celebrity monk offers notable moments that provide some legitimate rectification data.

Yet, no matter how extensive the apparent correlations, speculative birth times will always remain slightly suspect. Predictions based on speculative birth times must include more than the usual caveat emptor.

Readers familiar with intimate details of H.H.'s life might wish to continue rectifying H.H.'s birth time to get the details working to their intuitive satisfaction.








Rahu * Ketu

How to Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life
  • HH Dalai Lama,
  • translated and edited by Jeffrey Hopkins, p.188

"When I was a young boy, Tantra was just a matter of blind faith. At age twenty-four, I lost my own country, and then after coming to India started really reading Tsongkhapa's explanations on emptiness.

Then, after moving to Dharamsala, I put more effort into the study and practice of the stages of the path, emptiness, and Tantra. So it was only in my late twenties after gaining some experience of emptiness that deity yoga made sense.

One time in the main temple in Dharamsala I was performing the ritual of imagining myself as a deity of Highest Yoga Tantra, called Guhya-samaja.

My mind continuously remained on the recitation of the ritual text, and when the words "I myself" came, I completely forgot about my usual self in relation to my combination of mind and body: Instead, I had a very clear sense of"I" in relation to the new, pure combination of mind and body of Guhyasamaja that I was imagining.

Since this is the type of self-identification that is at the heart of Tantric yoga, the experience confirmed for me that with enough time I could definitely achieve the extraordinary, deep states mentioned in the scriptures."

Chandra-Simha + Zukra

Chandra in bhava-1

Chandra yuti Zukra

  • suggests a royal lineage

  • Chandra yuti Zukra suggests a spoiled child

  • but the staunchly egalitarian 7th aspect from abstract, philosophically detached dig-bala * dignified, swakshetra Kumbha Shani-7 puts the kibosh on most of the pomp and ceremony. Despite the abundant plumes and trumpets of medieval Tibetan ritual with which H.H. remains involved, he is much more famous worldwide for his participatory linkage (Kumbha) systematic (Kumbha) egalitarian (Kumbha) presentation of the dharma, presented from the standpoint of a simple monk.

  • Outside the Tibetan diaspora, H.H.'s clearest image is of the simple monk saying "My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness."

Within the Tibetan diaspora, H.H.'s dramatic role in religious liturgy is extremely vital to ethnic tradition. We simply point to the expected polarity of Chandra-Zukra giving localized ethnic pomp and circumstance, while Shani emphasizes material, mechanistic, systematic philosophy of mind linking the social community of all sentient beings.

As with all mutual opposing drishti, if the planets are friendly toward each other the native can generally manage the polarity by behaving opposite ways in opposite domains.

Biographical Data matched to Vimshottari Dasha Periods

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

His Holiness Tenzing Gyatso was born #5 of 16 children of a rural farm family. His birth time is not recorded or remembered; however the western-equivalent date of July 6, 1935 is not contested.

troubled exodus from Tibet in 1959

momentous planned misalignments requiring realignment attention including threat of fleshdeath

lifetime of international leadership under highly straitened circumstances.

  • extraordinary accomplishments as the most public expositor of an extremely conceptual religio-philosophical tradition which incorporates the full tantric skill set including magic and psychic healing (Magha)

  • but which is also perfectly rational at the highest levels Shani/Kumbha = science.

  • Further, H.H.'s career as a religious leader with political responsibilities would be confirmed by Shani-Meena =10th navamsha

His Holiness received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. This prestigious international honor would have been granted at the very beginning of Guru Mahadasha where vidyapathi-5 Guru is also Lord of celebrity-politics Rahu-5.


Additional major international recognitions during Shani-Shani period include

  • Honorary Canadian Citizenship bestowed by the unanimous agreement of the Canadian Parliament in 2006

  • USA Congressional Gold Medal bestowed by the US Congress upon major servants of humanity, also in 2006.

The USA honor was backed by two-thirds majority of Congress - which signifies exceptionally strong support for H.H.'s leadership (Shani) despite the USA's crucial commercial ties to China.

bhratrupathi-3 Zukra in lagna; Guru in 3 = communications

At minimum the proposed radix chart displays abundant communicative capabilities associated with an iconic image (1). His Holiness learned International English in adulthood and has become a highly successful communicator in several human languages over the period of his increasing recognition as a thought leader in the global community (Surya-yuti-Budha Mithuna 11 .

Proposed"ability to leave the body" Magha lagna also suggests his ability to communicate psychically with those who are sensitive enough to perceive his presence on the astral plane. Many people report that H.H. appears to them in dreams and waking meditation, as a benevolent, fatherly figure offering unconditional acceptance and encouragement in their spiritual practice.

What is a 'Lama Blessing'?

  • H.H. Dalai Lama. (2003).
  • Stages of Meditation .
  • Ven. Geshe Lobsang Jordhen, Losang Choephel Ganchenpa, and Jeremy Russell (Trans.).

"Let me begin by explaining what we mean by blessing when we talk about a lama's blessing or the blessing of the Dharma in the Buddhist context.

Blessing must arise from within your own mind .

  • It is not something that comes from outside, even though we talk about a lama's blessing or the blessing of the Three Objects of Refuge.

  • When the positive qualities of your mind increase and negativities decrease, that is what blessing means.

The Tibetan word for blessing can be broken into two parts:

  • byin means "magnificent potential,"

  • and rlab means "to transform."

  • So, byin rlab means transforming into magnificent potential.

Therefore, blessing refers to the development of virtuous qualities that you did not previously have and the improvement of those good qualities that you have already developed.

  • It also means decreasing the defilements of the mind that obstruct the generation of wholesome qualities.

  • So, actual blessing is received when the mind's virtuous attributes gain strength and its defective characteristics weaken or deteriorate."

All Faiths Good and Worthy

H.H. Dalai Lama. (2001).

  • Answers: Discussions with Western Buddhists by the Dalai Lama . José Ignacio Cabezón (Ed.)

"Suppose... you try to convert someone from another religion to the Buddhist religion, and you argue with them trying to convince them of the inferiority of their position.

And suppose you do not succeed, suppose they do not become Buddhist. On the one hand, you have failed in your task, and on the other hand, you may have weakened the trust they have in their own religion, so that they may come to doubt their own faith.

What have you accomplished by all this? It is of no use.

When we come into contact with the followers of different religions, we should not argue. Instead, we should advise them to follow their own beliefs as sincerely and as truthfully as possible. For if they do so, they will no doubt reap certain benefits. Of this there is no doubt. Even in the immediate future, they will be able to achieve more happiness and more satisfaction.

...When I meet the followers of different religions, I always praise them, for it is enough, it is sufficient, that they are following the moral teachings that are emphasized in every religion. It is enough, as I mentioned earlier, that they are trying to become better human beings. This in itself is very good and worthy of praise."
