“Realisation is not acquisition of anything new nor is it a new faculty. It is only removal of all camouflage.”

Zravana * Shrona * Hari * Apramaya * Azvattha
For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

The Listener * Shaman
Shravishta gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Sravana are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.
Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.
As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, Shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law. In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet, Being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.
Shravana must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law. While public dignity remains important, Sravana fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow (Chandra) of the ethnicity or the nation. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.
Themes of social stability, public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Sravana's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shravana
QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 86.
"An excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,
This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life
He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.
Many social workers and philanthropists have Shravana rising.
He will also be very religious
