Splendid placement for a speaker or singer

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson [champion-challenger Purvabhadra-1] Decades before the Civil War, aJ developed a love for oratory [2] when still in his teens. As soon as AJ learned to read fluently [at about age 18] he began to study the speeches of great classical orators. As his pro-slavery constituents increasingly demanded a champion to expound their cause, aJ's his public speeches became saturated [2 saturation] with his own legal theory [Dhanus] that slave-owning was a Constitutional right. Even when he was impeached for obstructing the lawful emancipation of slaves, aJ was regarded as one of the best orators in Congress.

A consummate fundraiser focused on network participation via small contributions, mRO is noted for her ability to achieve (11) engagement of social outliers (Ketu fringe) and the disaffected, who would previously have identified themselves as disenfranchised non-stakeholders in the national process. She visits places that USA political outreach does not normally go (Ketu eccentric) such as Native American reservations and poor urban neighborhoods, where MRO's Outsider Profile is credible and popular (11).

[end quote]

Where the Thoughts do Linger

The bhava which is 3rd-from-Budha also creates a "landing pad" upon which the thoughts tend to dwell and linger.

Naturally, if graha occupy this "focus " bhava, the nature of the repeating narrative engagement with those thoughts will adjust according to the character of the tenant graha.

If Budha occupies bhava-2, then the thoughts naturally focus upon third-from-Budha = sukha bhava-4

  • Folkways, patriotism, the nation-state
  • ethnic customs and traditions (including superstitions and folk religion)
  • roots of a people, spirits of the lands and waters of the place of birth, or the place where one has set roots
  • oceans, marine life, boats and fishing
  • land, the schooling, mother and early childhood home, patriotism,
  • habits of a people, cultural roots,
  • property ownership-stewardship , vehicles
  • ways to get sheltered

And he said to them,

"Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven

is like a master of a house,

who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old."

~~ Gospel of Matthew, ch. 52 [International Standard Version]
