RAVANA & his Astrological EndeavoursBharat Bajaj
Happy Dussehra To All..
The day is celebrated as victory of good over evil. Though Ravana out of pride of becoming the most powerful being in the universe commits many serious crimes like kidnaping Sita, and troubling the Gods, he also once hit Lord Ganesha on his head, misusing Vedic knowledge to gain control and use brute force, out of arrogance tried to lift the Kailash and Lord Shiva becomes furious. But he was a great scholar and had immense knowledge of astrology, so thought to write something on this today.
The demon king Ravana wanted to have a son with extra ordinary strength and power and one who becomes the undisputed king of the three worlds. His son Indrajeet was blessed to be a great warrior.
An astrology birth chart looks somewhat like a chess board. Ravana was also well versed in Ayurveda and he wrote “Ravana Sahita”, he was also aware of practices similar to black magic.
When Ravana’s Son Indrajeet was not yet born, Ravana encaged all the 9 planets in the 11th house of Indrajeet’s birth chart so that none of these planets could cause any harm to him and he becomes the undisputed and most powerful demon in all the three worlds and which he did become.
But as one cannot run away from his karma. The demon prince too had to face his end inspite of all his strength. He had acquired all his knowledge from Guru Shukraacharya. He was so powerful that in one single day he killed 670 million half man-half monkey armed forces of lord Ram and almost destroyed their entire race from planet earth single handedly.
Prince Indrajeet also conquered heaven by defeating Lord Indra one of the most mighty god among all gods. He acquired the title of “Ati Maharathi” for his extra ordinary strength and valour. He played an important role in the war between Ram and Ravana.
But inspite of all this Ravana couldn’t save his son, just before birth of Indrajeet when all 9 planets were trapped by Ravana in the 11th house, (why 11th house because it’s a neutral house and it cannot cause any harm) hence here all planets couldn’t do anything against Indrajeet.
Planet Jupiter the life giver and planet Saturn the judge came together and Saturn made a ball from his sweat and skin and Jupiter injected life in it, they threw this ball in the 12th house of Indrajeet’s birth chart just when Indrajeet was about to take birth. 12th house is the house of losses in anyone’s chart.
This ball is known as mandi or gullika and placed in the 12th house of losses in Indrajeet case was responsible for his destruction.
Ravana, was one of the most powerful beings ever to roam the universe, Valmiki’s Ramayana show Ravana as a tyrant of mighty power who was holding the gods at ransom, In the classic text, he is found kidnapping Rama’s wife Sita, to claim vengeance on Rama and his brother Lakshmana for having cut off the nose of his sister Surpanakha. He is described as a devout follower of the god Shiva, a great scholar.
