influenced the thinking of

"I maintain that truth is a pathless land , and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect.

That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally.

Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized;

  • nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path."

Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Shatavisaka * Sadachbia * Shata-takara

BPL commentary

For Shata-taraka births of a masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Rahu-ruled paradigm of Sadabija, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sadachbia* Tabernacles. Their purpose is mixing of systems.

Mixed-Order Systems

Rahu-ruled fellows who are born into Sata are often found in fascinating roles that boost mass consciousness. Sata births are somewhat rare. Sadachbia work with large regulated systems such as mathematics, scientific theories, and sacred cosmology and with formalized psychic sciences such as hypnosis.

Sadabija gentlemen may display principled methods of inquiry, and they may hold dignified social positions, but their personal lifestyles are often unorthodox. Their work often overturns an outdated social paradigm of scientific theory or religious belief.

Themes of over-reaching, charlatanry, entrancement, expedient linkage, hypnotic appearance, and connections between contradictory systems may contextualize Sata's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shata-taraka

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 88.

thoughtful and meditative

Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."

A light eater and moderate in most things."

QUOTATION from Mr. Krishnamurti Jiddu

"You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket.

The friend said to the devil, "What did that man pick up?"

"He picked up a piece of the truth," said the devil.

"That is a very bad business for you, then," said his friend.

"Oh, not at all," the devil replied, "I am going to help him organize it."

QUOTATION from Mr. Krishnamurti Jiddu

"Beauty is complete order.

But most of us have not that sense of beauty in our lives.

  • We may be great artists, great painters, expert in various things, but in our own daily life, with all the anxieties and miseries, we live, unfortunately, a very disordered life.

It is a fact.

  • You may a great scientist, you may be a great expert in a subject, but you have your own problems, struggles, pain, anxieties and the rest of it.

We are asking, is it possible to live in complete order within, not impose discipline, control, but to inquire into the nature of this disorder, what are the causes, and to dispel, move away, wash away the cause.

Then there is a living order in the universe."

Teenage Krishnamurti, until now protected by his family and his handlers, is appointed leader of the Order of the Star in the East by the institutional leadership, Annie Besant. His English management team tried to arrange his admission to both Oxford and London universities but K failed the entrance exams. K was too young and academically unprepared, while and his managers were viewed in many circles as hoaxy frauds (Rahu). Still there was a movement to be developed and money to be made (Rahu). There were many believers and many large donations. Private tutors were hired and life went on.

Dec-1910 publication of At the Feet of the Master (K's age 15) written when Krishnamurti was only 15 and promoted as his own work. As commentators have noted, a fifteen year old not well accustomed to formal English could hardly have produced such a masterpiece of succinct wisdom and mature advice. Clearly it was written by an adult with a promotional goal in mind. Modern linguistic analysis shows that it is the writing of Leadbeater. Nevertheless it sold fabulously under Krishnamurti's purported authorship, and soon the book was hailed as a cornerstone scripture of the Theosophical movement.
