|DEDICATE THIS EXPERIMENT TO OTHERS
QUOTATION from Pema Chödrön, The Places that Scare You, pages 12
"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."

Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207-1273)
Selected Poems (Penguin Classics)
Translated by Coleman Barks with John Moyne
A Community of the Spirit
There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.
Open your hands,
if you want to be held.
Sit down in the circle.
Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd's love filling you.
At night, your beloved wanders.
Don't accept consolations.
Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover's mouth in yours.
You moan, "She left me. He left me."
Twenty more will come.
Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.
Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being."
BPL Commentary * bhava-11 GUNA
friendly, gainful, economic-systems, gridworked, social-networking 11th-amsha defines labha-bhava.
Vriddhi-sthana = /birth place of gainful, guna, increasing/
Vriddhi-bhava = Shani's svabhava 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 risk-rewarding Rahu's influence, the hierarchy-threatening risks which are not allowed in conservative bhava-10 = encouraged in gainful, 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.

and 11 has at least one beneficial placement attribute."Your wealth and other forms of gain are improved.
If there is an elder sibling,
they may be very successful and be of help to you."
It Matters Who Your Friends Are
QUOTATION from 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:
The last two are based upon the foundation of the first, namely the training in morality.
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."
QUOTATION from Shri B.V. Raman.300 Important Combinations . #59. Vidyuta Yoga
When the 11th lord is in deep exaltation
and joins Venus in a Kendra from the lord of the lagna ,
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,

Earnings and Yearnings
Labha bhava is all about obtaining 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.
Benevolent planets in labha bhava show the type and quality of permission in the person's life. When permission levels are high, one may experience satisfaction of needs, and gaining of pleasure.
[uchcha] 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.
[uchcha] 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 marketplace revenues during Vimshottari periods of Rahu.
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.
ONE'S OWN ELDER SIBLING + FATHER'S YOUNGER SIBLING
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.
| QUOTATION from
uncle (n.) Late 13c., from Old French oncle, from Latin avunculus "mother's brother" ("father's brother" was patruus), literally "little grandfather," diminutive of avus "grandfather,"
from PIE root *awo- "grandfather, adult male relative other than one's father" (source also of Armenian hav "grandfather," Lithuanian avynas "maternal uncle," Old Church Slavonic uji "uncle," Welsh ewythr "uncle").
Replaced Old English eam (usually maternal; paternal uncle was fædera), which represents the Germanic form of the root (source also of Dutch oom, Old High German oheim "maternal uncle," German Ohm "uncle").
If Vriddhi-pati-11 is strong and well-placed
if Vriddhi-pati-11 = uttama or otherwise exceptionally strong,
ne may gain substantially from the matters signified by that exalted graha.
Kumbha-1 can become independently financially privileged if both bhava (3) and (11) are powerful.
Friends , Friendliness, Networks human and technological
Kumb = "low place, hollow, flatland, broadland"
Naturally, the marketplace is a gathering arena for friends.
bhava-11 activates 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.
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 participation via extension of lawful opportunity to participatewhich is granted to previously unconnected classes of ideas, people, behaviors, and objects.
