All Thought Is Prayer

Crop Circle in Oxfordshire Field, England 2009. Length 600ft.

" Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.

  • Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviors.

  • Keep your behaviors positive, because your behaviors become your habits.

  • Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.

Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny."

apocryphally attributed to ~~Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi

QUOTATION from Tenzing Gyatso. Answers: Discussions with Western Buddhists by the Dalai Lama . (2001). José Ignacio Cabezón (Ed.)

"What is the role that consciousness plays in the process of reincarnation?"

" In general, there are different levels of consciousness.

The more rough, or gross, levels of consciousness are very heavily dependent upon the physical, or material, sphere.

Since one's own physical aggregate (the body) changes from birth to birth, so too do these gross levels of consciousness.

The more subtle the level of consciousness, however, the more independent of the physical sphere ,

And hence the more likely that it will remain from one life to the next.

But in general, whether more subtle or more gross, all levels of consciousness are of the same nature."

Mental Targei

When Budha and the graha in 3rd from Budha enjoy parivartamsha yoga, beneficial mental results are expected.

3rd-from-Budha is a less benevolent location for matters of mental health. Any planet in 3rd-from-Budha will show that upon which the thoughts "land" , upon which the thoughts hover and linger.

3rd-from Budha * mental traffic

3rd-from-Budha * Stress zones * may include:

" 3rd"angle = controlled by Mangala, and Mangala has a permanently adversarial relationship with Budha.

Any graha in 3rd-from Budha can produce mental over-exertion . Too much thinking - even excessive positive thinking - can lead to mental exhaustion from the endless chatter, restlessness, Anxiety , frayed nerves.

of all the seven graha which can occupy this place -- Chandra, Mangala, Guru, Shukra, Shani, Rahu, or Ketu -- Shani in 3rd-from-Budha poses the most serious challenge to the enjoyment of life.

Shani in 3rd-from-Budha = negative thinking, scarcity thinking, mental oppression by the rule of law, unduly hard mental work, bitterness, undue concern with heavy consequences, and significant psycho-mental depression.

Graha in 3rd-from-Budha may indicate a repeating loop narrative which interrupts in the reasoning process.

  • the native experiences excessive attention to the signals represented by the rashi, bhava, and tenant graha in 3rd-from-Budha.

  • Consequences include distracted thinking, depressed thinking, compulsive thoughts, etc. according to the nature of that graha in 3rd-from-Budha.

Graha in 3rd-from-Budha may give excellent results in other departments of life, but those graha which occupy 3rd-from-Budha will cause some disruption of the free-moving, openly associative, neutral thinking process.

It is easier for the mental process to function when it is unencumbered by strong feelings or opinions. 3rd-from-Budha represents a content area of the thought-world which is somewhat"stuck"and upon which the mentality tends to fixate. 3rd-from-Budha contains mentalized material which is incompletely resolved from parallel life or early childhood experience.

If graha occupy 3rd-from-Budha, the karaka and lordship significations of those graha gain special importance (for ease or for difficulty). Strong feelings and opinions, compulsive or habitual loops, and other draining or distracting concerns will be generated by the graha(s) in 3rd-from-Budha.

Even a very capable and aware thinker will recognize the"brain drain" effect of the graha 3rd-from-Budha in their mental life.

Vimshottari Dasha effects

The strongest effect of this mental-drain phenomenon occurs during the mahadasha of Budha, during the bhukti of the graha(s) which occupy 3rd-from-Budha.

  • During these periods the native should be especially vigilant to maintain optimum mental health.
  • papagraha in 3rd-from-Budha may produce mentally challenging results, but sukha-graha in this angle are also somewhat problematic.

The mind exists in a state of not enough and so is always greedy for more.

When you are identified with the mind you get bored and restless very easily.

~~ A New Earth 1948- spiritual explainer Eckhart Tolle

Surya in 3rd-from-Budha ?

Surya cannot occupy 3rd-from-Budha.

Chandra occupies 3rd-from-Budha


Sensitive, responsive, absorptive Chandra in communicative 3rd from Budha

emotionally originating talkativeness, diagramming, doodling

comforted by writing poems, lyrics, messages

Not truly problematic, but a noticeably sensitive mental type.

Mental fluctuations like the ocean tides, one's feelings determine the rhythm of the reasoning process.

Presuming that Chandra is well-disposed, can be an asset in integrated mental-emotional process, so long as the native can register but does not dwell on the feelings.

Native may not be able to effectively discriminate between rational conclusions and intuitive perceptions. (These are both valid ways of thinking but they are different and should be consciously distinguished for clarity and appropriateness of judgment.)

Plus side: highly effective psycho-emotional communications with the fundamental emotional realities of humanity.

  • The Tower 1922-1928 William Butler Yeats [nīcha-Kuja-12] fight for Irish Independence. WBY was a highly accomplished writer, translator, publisher.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry-8-Tudor notorious for conflict with religious authority and sexual pursuits

Repetitive narrative of anger, dwelling on electro-magnetic initiating thoughts of domination and winning.

If Kuja is ill-disposed, winning = revenge. Otherwise, winning via vigorous competition.

Tends toward repetition of the adolescent thought process oriented to activities of simple physical sport and Animal-instinct sexual pursuii

May generate the "sore loser" complex; thoughts promote intolerance of weakness and exaggerated heroism; "Napoleon complex"

POTUS-33 Trial and Hope 1884-1972 Harry Truman famously said:

"[The American President] has to take all sorts of abuse from liars and demagogues.… The people can never understand why the President does not use his supposedly great power to make 'em behave. Well, all the President is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway."

Guru occupies 3rd-from-Budha


Generous, guiding Guru in communicative 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on broad and inclusive themes of philosophy, sacred teachings, scientific theory, political ideology, divinity, broad-scope, conceptual discourse, dogma, preaching, professorship, global humanism

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle] = Guru-Mithuna-10 in 3rd-from-Budha = information, conversations, publications. In addition to his enduringly successful crime novels, A-C-D was a guru-leader [10] of the 19th-century British Spiritualist movement.

  • War and Peace 1828-1910 Leo Tolstoy = Guru-Tula-5 in 3rd-from-Budha = abundant literary creativity, 40 books, 14 children

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts - Guru yuti Rahu

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru [Guru-yuti-Ketu] [2, knowledge, face, speech] 3rd-from-Budha Guru rules 2-tradition + 5-politics. JN wrote extensively about India's History [2]. However, Ketu shows JN's frequent disconnect from the traditional realities of most of the citizens whom he described and later governed. JN was raised in a culturally English household [2, language]. He had a British university education. His legal training happened in London. Ketu made JN both a broadly understanding historian [2] and a permanent visitor-witness. JN's books reflect his peculiar observational viewpoint.

  • King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson [Guru-yuti-Rahu] [11, fan-clubs, achievement, revenues] occupies 3rd-from-Budha = high-earning songwriter Choreographer

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover co-authored with his capable wife Lou Hoover wrote a standard academic-professional text on mining = Brihaspati-yuti-Shukra nichha = Kanya-lagna = 3rd-from-Budha

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding [Mūla-2 mūlatrikoṇa] WGH owned several newspapers. In the custom of the day, WGH personally wrote most of the stories and opinions. In WGH political commentaries, Guru allowed a Broad Interpretation of the truth.

The communicative style reflects the adversarial relationship between Guru and Budha. Budha is neutral toward Guru but wide-worldview Brihaspati intensely dislikes small-details Professor Budha .

The reason for their inimical stance = these two graha compete for the same audience. Guru wants to preach about religion and higher law (Dharma) whereas Budha wants to chat about superficial daily thoughts. They both try to use the same mental apparatus.

A general outcome of Guru in 3rd from Budha = the person may talk mercurially about philosophy of life and higher truths, the delivery vehicle is too chatty [Budha]. Also the communicative motive is too much mundanely instrumental, depriving The message of religious profundity, except in rare cases.

Guru generates a repeating narrative of hope and expansion whether there is a foundation to support that expansion or not.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt [nīcha-Shani-yuti-Guru] [8] "the only thing to fear is fear itself"

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle [uchcha-Mangala-yuti-Guru-nīcha] [publications-announcements] commanding radio addresses delivered from exile to an audience enduring military occupation claimed legitimacy [Kuja-Makara-uchcha] yet were so illegitimate from the Vichy govt viewpoint that Cdg was condemned for treason [nicha-Guru illegitimate]. Also empowered the over-reaching ambitions of [uchcha-Rahu-Urisha] in 3rd-from-Chandra.

  • POTUS-33 Trial and Hope 1884-1972 Harry Truman [uchcha-rogesha -Guru-yuti-Kuja---nīcha-bhanga] (1, personality).

  • UK-PM Path to Power 1925-2013 Margaret Thatcher- Guru-2

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru [Guru-yuti-Ketu] [2, knowledge, history, face, speech]

Topics of global travel, world culture, education, university, philosophy and doctrinal narrative

Minding other people's business, trying to save the world, Tends toward repetition of the compassionate and global worldview, mind frequently returning to the big picture .

Tends toward repetition of the quest for broad, simple solutions to complex questions, Pollyanna complex, positive and cheerful . May seem like an ideologue.

Guru the Multiplier expands and extends the scope of everything in His territory. 3rd-from-Budha often indicates writing including songwriting.

  • King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson [Guru-yuti-Rahu] -[11, fan-clubs, achievement, revenues] Multiplies [Guru] + amplifies [Rahu] the communications production. Jackson wrote a colossal number of songs with detailed plans for ensemble (3) stage performance. MJJ wrote songs for the people. His lyrics and dance choreography enjoyed immense [Guru] popularity among the proletariat [11]

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods the first black world championship golfer maintains a narrative of cheerful inclusiveness and generosity (Guru-Meena-5 - celebrity). TW's iconic media presence (3rd-from-3rd) has expanded the social culture of golf, including the relaxation most of the racist restriction policies of many white country-clubs.

Shukra in 3rd-from-Budha


Diplomatic, harmony-seeking Shukra in communicative 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on themes of relationship, sensual pleasure, balanced arrangements, marriage, alliances, trust, bargaining, contracts and promises, material well-being, acquisition, fine arts and music, luxuries, women

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover - Brihaspati-yuti-Shukra nichha * Hoover and his wife Lou Henry were a writing team that produced more than 30 books in a variety of fields from engineering to political philosophy. Lou was a noted translator. Historians now opine that Lou was the primary author.

Repeating narrative of sensual pleasures, concern with superficial attractiveness and petty social manners, worries about being liked.

Distracted focus due to sense-pleasure data too much interrupting the reasoning process.

Mind frequently returning to alliances, relationships, treasury, sense delights, one's ability to receive validation for one's own beauty and attractiveness, arts and music.

Bhava indicates the mental target:

[Shukra in 1] = the mind often dwells on concern with personality, maintaining a gracious appearance

[Shukra in 2]

the mind often dwells on values, treasuries of value, collections of beautiful items, knowledge of history and languages

  • Holy Science 1855-1936 Shri Yukteswara Giri historical knowledge, units of value

[Shukra in 3]

the mind often dwells on search for harmony in the immediate team- cohort , attractiveness of hand-craft, writing, conversations, siblings, workgroup

[Shukra in 4]

the mind often dwells on beauty of the home, arts/music in the home, the homeland, landscaping, gardens, and natural environment

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison (4) * lover of gardens, precious collector-cars, palatial homes

  • Oops 1981- music-merchandise Britney Spears [2, song-face-mouth] real-estate, parents

[Shukra in 5]

the mind often dwells on politics, games, drama, divine intelligence, center-stage performance, politically charismatic artistic expressions of beauty and balance

[Shukra in 6] = the mind often dwells on imbalance within relationships * especially with womenfolk * addictions * attractiveness of sweet substances, alcohol, pleasures, pain-numbing drugs

[Shukra in 7] = the mind often dwells on attractiveness of the spouse, harmony, alliances, contracts - seeking balance in all things, making yoga , diplomacy, making arrangements

[Shukra in 8] = the mind often dwells on secrets, catastropic scenarios, hidden wealth, hidden power to balance and harmonize

[Shukra in 9] = the mind often dwells on ideology, theory, first principles, philosophy, doctrine

[Shukra in 10] = the mind often dwells on hierarchical position, social rank, one's attractiveness via favorable reputation

[Shukra in 11] = the mind often dwells on gain of social-material goals, wealth and pleasure from earning income

[Shukra in 12] = the mind often dwells on imagery providing spiritual guidance from the ancestors; on dreams of beautiful figures; on invisible designs, and distant lands

Shani in 3rd-from-Budha

Systematic, structural, survivalist Shani resides in communicative 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on broad and inclusive themes of social structures, hierarchy, class-caste, systems, networks, rules, legislation, consequences and punishments, time, 3rd-diminsional physics, endurance, discipline, austerity, elegance, minimalism, common folk, populism, the masses and the classes

  • Faust 1749-1832 polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe [Shani-uchcha] JWvG wrote bawdy songs and drama to be played in taverns - enormously popular works that are still used

  • Sound and Fury 1897-1962 novelist William Faulkner * dialogs of the common folk

  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley [Shani-yuti-Chandra] [9 fixed doctrinal beliefs, unchanging ancestral faith] Inspirational songs for the southern land-working tradespeople and agricultural classes

Shani in 3rd-from-Budha suggests a conventional, often ponderous, way of thinking. One may to think in heavily weighted or pessimistic terms presuming the structures of law as inevitable; may be a worst-case thinker, or the mental narrative is laden with expectations of scarcity and responsibility to societyr.

Repeating narrative of scarcity and restraint

Repeating narrative of public judgment ,

  • USA Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist

Often in a punitive or individuality-constraining context

  • first gay Anglican USA Bishop Gene Robinson

Chronic lack of survival resources, material poverty, fears of social punishment, social obloquy,

absent support from social infrastructure, heavy duties and obligation, self-isolation, insecurity.

Native perceives deep pressure from Time, a lack of ease, and a often a crushing workload.

Chronic depression or mature sobriety during Shani bhuktir.

If Shani occupies 3rd-from- Budha

characteristic mental sobriety throughout the incarnation.

This position indicates an agency of younger siblings and team-mates who suffer from excess fear. Their conservative and safety-seeking actions may create obstacles for positive expansion of one's own life.

One may experience a light but pervasive mental depression throughout the 17 years of Budha Mahadasha

(even if the native is a child at the time, the depression may be felt for 17 years)

The bhukti of Budha-Shani may induce a severe or extended depression, which lifts only at the tail end of the Budha Mahadasha

drishti from the gochara Shani affecting either Budha or Shani will deepen the existing depression

Should Budha occupy the kundali indriya-lagna or Chandra's bhava, so that Shani occupies not only 3rd-from-Budha but also 3rd-from-lagna or in the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort evangelical instructional team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra, the depression may be quite crippling.

Much relief can be felt when other graha cast a positive drishti upon natal Shanaischarya.

Luckily, the Budha/Shani bhukti occurs only once during the lifetime.

Rahu in 3rd-from-Budha


Risk-positive, self-important, ambitious Rahu resides in 3rd from Budha

Rahu seeks privilege due to His presumed importance in role of Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on themes of ethno-cultural mixing, camouflaged access to privilege, social mobility, challenge to conventions, self-promotion, high risk

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler [Rahu-12 imagination, interior guidance] occupies the evangelical 3rd-from-Budha = influential autobiography Mein Kampf

  • Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus [Rahu-6-Kanya] stigmatized impoverished marginalized

  • The Way of Zen 1915-1973 Alan Watts Radio talks, books, public appearances explaining eastern philosophies to western audiences [Guru yuti Rahu]

  • USA-Sen-Tenn VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore [Budha oratorical Purvabhadra-2][Budha in bhava-4] ++ [Rahu in bhava-6] [pollution, disagreement, accusations] AAG started and ended his public career in the position of journalist. As a new college graduate, AAG joined the Army in the role of military field reporter [4]. While briefly attending law school, he wrote and published for a local newspaper. Following a long career in elected politics including USA Senate and VPOTUS roles, AAG returned to science journalism as a narrator-producer of television and cinema, including the pivotal climate-change documentary, An Inconvenient Truth .

    King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson [Guru-yuti-Rahu] [11, fan-clubs, achievement, revenues] songwriter pop entertainer, unequalled

  • Dittoheads 1951-2021 radio polemic Rush Limbaugh [Guru-yuti-Rahu]

Repeating narrative of ambitious self-elevation to higher levels of privilege via photographic imagery, cinema, writing, messaging, communicating to deliver an irregular, arrhythmic, barrier-bending, taboo-twisting or unsettling announcements

composing reports containing exotic information

the information may destabilize conventions or upset normal patterns

desire to rise above one's station of birth, desire to enter elite social environments, obsession with promotion and obtainment,

disregard for established protocol, promotion of adventure and risk, compulsive self-promotion thought loops,

intense social-ranking ideation, socially disruptive and fascinating desires.

Mesmerized [Rahu] by mental hunger to possess that which is socially forbidden, unusual, exotic.

shaming-scandal, yes. Cruel pursuit of high office, whatever it takes, yes. But Rahu is transformative and able to successfully instrumentalize the energy of catastrophic attack when in classroom-8. His opponent in the second-term election was very weak and Rahu's scheme worked .

Rahu in 3rd-from- Budha = risk-positive thinking, adventurous or barrier-bending, taboo-twisting ideas

  • POTUS-31-pair Girl Scouts 1874-1944 author Lou Henry Hoover [Mangala-yuti-Rahu] Made a stir of racial mixing when she invited the wife of an African American Congressional Representative to a Whitehouse tea. She was told by political advisors to disinvite the racially taboo lady, to avoid political consequences to her husband's career. She did it anyway [Rahu] and the press published with glee (3rd from Budha press)

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates. In addition to corporate and philanthropic management, BHG [co]wrote several best-selling books

Disruptive, adventurous, ambitious, occasionally fraudulent agency of younger siblings and team-mates who suffer from excess desire to obtain privileges not yet earned.

Their disruptive and risky actions may create interruptions in stable progress of one's own life. It is difficult to control the immediate younger sibling in particular, when this agent acts in ways that disregard protocol and challenge the law.

During the mahadasha of Budha, if Rahu occupies 3rd-from-Budha, one may feel that one's thoughts have taken on an obsessive-compulsive quality.

It becomes difficult to control electro-magnetic initiating thoughts focused on the desire to possess a person, a power, or an experience.

one may be unable to endure limits of any kind upon one's behavior.

One feels antagonistic toward authority and disrespectful of statutory law .

Positive outcome can include the benefits of breaking with tradition in art, literature, sport, or other humanistic venues where innovation and risk are praised.

Naturally if Rahu occupies a conservative rashi (of Shani or Shukra) or if Rahu occupies a house which craves stability (4 or 7), the prognosis is less happy.

However, an adventurous mentality can always produce something interesting even if the native must wait until after the Budha/Rahu period to receive proper validation for the ground-breaking or record-breaking production.

During Budha/Rahu period one is more likely to feel censured for being disruptive, but indeed there may be praise forthcoming later, after Budha Mahadasha is complete.

Ketu in 3rd-from-Budha


Ambivalent, dissociating, impermanent Ketu resides in 3rd from Budha

Literary, reporting, announcing, messaging, and communication on themes of spiritual detachment, emotional disengagement, abandonment, surrender, separation from attachment to formality, wandering, pilgrimage, freedom of formlessness, disintegration, chaos, windiness, dispersal, ghosts

Rahu in 9th from Budha simultaneously promotes the self-importance of engagement with ideology, dogma, philosophy, dharma, privileged interpreters of sacred teachings

Programmatic planning seems to dissipate and becomes materially ineffective.

  • POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Bloomer Ford, wife of POTUS-38 Gerald Ford and a long-time progressive activist, was a vigorous proponent of the opportunity-extending Equal Rights Amendment to the USA Constitution, for which she campaigned extensively. Yet Ketu occupies 3rd from Budha and ultimately this civil rights amendment failed to achieve ratification. (And USA womenfolk still on average earn 70 cents for every dollar earned by menfolk.)

It is however effective in other-worldly contexts such as transcendent music, spiritual hanting, poetry, or fiction writing

Also effective in the description of the experience of spiritual surrender

As always, the final outcome much depends upon Ketu's lord.

If dissociative Ketu's ruler is effective then Professor Ketu does not normally dissolve the outcome. Rather, Ketu may provide the advantage of cheerful disregard for outdated restrictions, and low/no blockage from unnecessary barriers. Still, Ketu in 3rd from Budha can dampen excitement of the communicative output and cause one to sound rather milquetoast.

  • POTUS-38 Time to Heal 1913-2006 Gerald R. Ford known for his comprehensive management of committees and his enduring town-hall tours for listening to USA voters nationwide. Yet, Ford was almost universally reckoned as a boring speaker. Due to his pipe-smoking habit, his teeth were not photogenic either [Ketu-2 teeth].

  • POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Bloomer Ford [Budha rules Ketu-8 in 3rd-from-Budha]

  • Socialite 1963- beauty pageants Marla Maples Trump

repeating narrative of detachment and despair, disconnection, inability to find meaning, compulsive wandering.

Potential for complete liberation if one intentionally releases the ego-membrane from connection to the thought process.

The narrative mind [Budha] shows a natural inclination toward non-petitionary prayer.

Ketu in 3rd-from- Budha = withdrawal from commercial activity, disinterest in siblings

Ketu occupies the 3rd from Budha = each small decision requires careful and circumspect review.

The judgment = flawed during the entire Budha-Ketu bhukti.

Tendency for the thoughts to linger in dissociating patterns, which may signal depression or disorientation

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln [Ketu-8] according to the records of his physicians, Lincoln (like many of his contemporaries) suffered from a lifetime condition of melancholia, which in modern parlance might be called depression. AL was prescribed the conventional toxic medical remedies, including laudanum and opium, which likely exacerbated the distancing Witness viewpoint of Ketu.

Disregard and dissolution via Agency of younger siblings and team-mates who suffer from excess detachment.

  • Their apathetic withdrawal from life's vital sensuality may create frustration and paralysis in one's own life.

  • It is difficult to convince the immediate younger sibling to be more intensely involved or to be satisfied with the life that agent has chosen.

  • The younger sibling under good conditions may take a vow of religious celibacy or other saintly detachment.

During the mahadasha of Budha, if Ketu occupies 3rd-from-Budha, the native may feel that the thought-narrative has an apathetic quality.

It becomes difficult to control the thought traffic specifically the interior instructions which direct one to annihilate the outdated relationships which still bind the native to the material plane.

For the spiritually advanced and properly guided personality, true ego-membrane separation from material concerns may occur and a saintly detachment results.

For the less spiritually aware, there is a tendency to depression and disconnection from reality which can be interpreted as mental illness, although it is usually just the first phase of a genuine enlightenment which will bloom in a later era of Ketu.

Ketu chidrakaraka = "cut-off" dissolution of attachment to outdated relationships and separation from objects of desire toward which one is unable to maintain any further desire. Bhukti of wandering Ketu can signify divorce if other pointers agree, and when Ketu the Releaser occupies the mentally over-exerted and rather anxious 3rd-freom-Budha, the divorce signification gains added potency.

If Ketu is born into the 3rd-from-Budha, during Vimshottari periods of Ketu one may feel mentally depressed, suffer from an apathetic mental narrative and unable to clearly express one's true intentions. One must retreat to silent sanctuary, unable to communicate successfully with others.

The specific nature of the alienating, mentally obtuse inability to communicate one's thoughts successfully usually results in rejection

Some wonderful alternative scenarios for the more conscious person include increased clairsentience and much liberated ability to pass through constructed barriers of time and space. Inter-dimensional travel is facilitated for those with the natural interest and training.

Alternating Analytical Meditation and Stabilizing meditation

QUOTATION from Dzong-ka-ba and Tenzing Gyatso.

  • (2005). Yoga Tantra: Paths to Magical Feats Jeffrey Hopkins (Trans. Ed.)

" Here is how to alternate [between]analytical and stabilizing meditation:

  • After analyzing with individual investigation, desist from such analysis and set the mind single-pointedly on the meaning you have understood.

  • However, before the mind becomes too settled, switch again to analytical meditation, alternating in this way between stabilizing and analytical meditation.

  • Gradually, he power of analysis itself will be able to induce physical and mental pliancy...

  • with respect to calm abiding, but to a greater degree.

Generation of a bliss of physical and mental pliancy, induced through the power of analysis, no longer requiring alternation between analytical and stabilizing meditation, marks the attainment of fully qualified special insight -- and thereby the attainment of the path of preparation.

From this point on, you have a union of calm abiding and special insight.

You now have powerful means for realizing the emptiness of inherent existence in order to overcome obstructions when it is brought to the level of direct perception.

Although specific tantras, or even specific passages in tantras, emphasize either stabilizing or analytical meditation,

  • it is necessary to alternate these two equally until special insight is attained through the bliss of mental pliancy being induced,
  • not by the power of stabilizing meditation, but by the power of analysis itself.

Therefore, it is not sufficient merely to withdraw the mind inside or even first to become mindful of the view of emptiness and then set merely in stabilizing meditation.

Analysis is necessary.

  • This is the thought of all three masters expert in Yoga Tantra." [end quote]
