  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 83

BPL commentary:

For Hasta nativities, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra considerably affects the outcome.

Mother-figures, protectors, guardians, gardeners, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, and providers of nourishment may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the constellation of Corvus.

"...clever, witty, and entertaining.

They like social contacts

  • and are particularly fond of the company of the opposite sex.

When in trouble, go to a Hasta person;

but do not try to pull the wool over their eyes,

  • as they are extremely clever

  • and will see through any deceit

they are very likable and are good company,

  • but never very attractive physically ."

Bhagavan Shri 1879-1950 Ramana Maharshi of Arunachala was said to be fully conscious at the time of fleshdeath from cancer age 70. He had reported a number of near-death experiences throughout his life, recorded by his biographers.

Guru in 8th-from-Chandra Karakamsha

rogesha-6 in Bhava-8 * Harsha Yoga prevents undue harm from sickness, enemies, debt, war, enslavement, or pollution .

Situations of illness or animosity (6) can be consciously transformed (8) into rejuvenation and spiritual rebirth.

Shri Ramana Maharshi was able to demonstrate convincingly via lawful argument (Shani rules-6 ) to his followers that he did not wish to prevent the fleshly suffering caused by his rampant cancer (6). He understood the principle of eternal life (8) and he wished to experience the karmic utility of the situation.

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
