  3. 3. Karma 2 The mad race of competition to which we find ourselves pulled willingly or unwillingly has a heavy toll on the human psyche. The demands of our work places are too much. Anxiety hangs in the air, unhealthy competition verges to the brink of jealousy and hatred, differences of opinion are taken as attacks on one’s ego, like the sword of Damocles insecurity keeps one’s nerves in a jangle and if these were not enough we carry our tensions back home with the inevitable result of family quarrels, fights, accusations and counter accusations, thus making home more of a hell than a heaven. Still worse is the fact that we fail to realize this situation. Just hint to someone that he or she is mentally ill or disturbed and the daggered looks would make you wish you had never mentioned it. For us mental illness is some alien malady that could never afflict us. Are not our superb performances at work, the large pay checks, social status and affluence enough proofs that our mental faculties are at their working best? Well, if you believe so, think again. Sit down and introspect for some moments. Can you still your mind for some time? Can you experience deep divine peace and jubilation that comes by diving deep into the inner conscience? Try and all you shall find would be worries, problems and tensions related to home, office or relatives inundating your mind. The more you shall try to push them aside the harder they shall pound on your brains. Maybe you are young and physically very strong, hence right now you don’t feel the negative effect of the hectic life you lead. But look around and you shall find someone who is almost a mental wreck just because his or her mind could take no more of this jet set life. And if you think you shall never be a prey, you are wrong for the body as well as the mind has a limit and the moment you cross it .....! Or maybe you are already feeling the negative effects -- sleep eludes you, veins stand out on your forehead seemingly ready to burst and giving you an intolerable headache, you lose patience on the slightest pretext, you suffer from frequent indigestion etc. Some try to overcome these by taking to drinking without knowing that they are inviting further trouble, for alcohol dulls physical pain but it cannot wash out mental anguish. Rather on coming back to the conscious state the anxieties return with renewed vigour. Moreover alcohol makes one physically weaker and unable to withstand the challenges of life. Solution to this universal problem lies not in medicine or wine. It also cannot be ignored for in its worst stages it could lead to nervous breakdown, ulcers, brain tumours and even hormonal imbalance. The best and most effective way remedy lies in the field of spiritualism. One way is meditation, but for a mentally disturbed person it is very difficult to concentrate his or her mind. Hence the ancient Rishis suggested Mantra Sadhanas. Mantras are special divine syllables whose rhythmic chanting produces a soothing effect on one’s mind. Regular use of Mantras helps one concentrate better and stills all mental turmoils and nervous disturbances. And once the chaos in the mind is calmed the physical body too returns to a healthy state. A Mantra hence not just flushes out useless, negative thoughts from the mind, rather it helps the body get rid of toxins produced due to anger, frustration or hatred, which if left there could lead to illnesses and physical disabilities. While using a Mantra for such healing purposes we tap into the power of the inner conscience or the Guru who dwells within, for this divine power can cure the worst maladies. Following is a wonderful Mantra Sadhana that can help you get rid of your mental disturbances and finally even your physical illnesses. Early morning at 5-5:30 am on a Sunday have a bath and wear a yellow dhoti/saree. Sit on a yellow mat facing East. In a copper plate place a AtharvaYakshini Nivaran Yantra. On the Yantra place two Manah Chetana Gutikas. Take water in the hollow of your right palm and pledge thus - I do this Sadhana for mental peace and to get rid of all mental and physical disturbances. Let the water flow on to the ground. Next light a ghee lamp and looking at its flame chant thus 5 times. Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu Gurur Devo Maheshwarah Guru Sakshaat Para Brahma Tasmei Shree Gurave Namah Next chant the following Mantra continuously without counting, for half an hour. Om Hreem Hreem Shreem Shreem Hreem Hreem Om Namah Do this daily for half an hour for 108 days . After 21 days throw the Yantra and Gutikas in a river or pond. After the Sadhna too sit daily for 10-15 minutes meditating on this Mantra.

  5. 5. Karma 4 Due to jealousy, heart burning or some base cause, the Tantriks use cheap tactics to overcome the adversaries, which ruins one’s life. Are you also under such a spell? We must have peace and happiness in life, and to achieve the same we work hard. But we do not get in return to the proportions of our labor. We get very little even after the best of our efforts, we toil to get success in our business but the profits are too little. We do not want any discontentment or discord in our family life, but in spite of our best efforts, the peace and tranquility of our family is disturbed. On the other hand people work very little, but get too much in return. Businessmen have ample wealth just be putting in little efforts, bit we are disappointed even after continuous efforts. It leads us to conclude, that there are some evil forces which make our strategies unsuccessful. Whenever you face such situations, feel assured that someone has used Black Magic on you, as a result of which all your efforts become ineffective. Thoughsuchprayogisnoteasy,butsomeTantriksexpertise in it and torture innocent souls at the behest of selfish and greedy people. Such Tantriks have made Black Magic their profession, and use it on others indiscriminately at the behest of their adversaries, to mint money. Thus the happy life of the people is spoiled. Such so-called Black-Magicians, no doubt can harm others, but they do not possess the powers to counter such Tantrik moves. As a result the victim keeps on suffering and sometimes it leads to the death of the victim. It is in fact very easy to cause harm through Tantra, but very difficult to amend the damage done. In order to learn the art of saving, one has to undergo Sadhna and Siddhi, and only a Tantrik of high caliber can do so. Symptoms of KalaJadoo/ Black Magic/ Evil Curse/ Mantira Kattu 1. Continuous illness. All treatments fail. 2. Constant worries, suicidal tendencies, or a desire to move away from home and family. 3. Continuous illness of any member of the family. 4. Too much weakness associated with obesity and being short tempered.
  6. 6. 5. Sterility, without any physical deficiency or without any medical reason. 6. Repeated miscarriages or death of the children. 7. Sudden unnatural deaths in the family. 8. Problems in the construction of house, factory or any other building. 9. Shortness of money, inspite of hard labour. 10. No desire to live. Feels suffocated. Life seems useless. No desire to rise in life. 11. Sudden quarrels between brothers or the members of the family, without any reason. 12. Achievement of objectives seems impossible. 13. Loss in the business of property. 14. Ill-health and under-development of children. 15. Loss of peace due to the fear of enemies and their evil designs. 16. Discord between spouses or the family. 17. Greatest efforts resulting in a failure. 18. Lack of Govt. favors, promotions and the desired transfers. 19. Poverty, in spite of hard work. These are some effects which prove that you are under the spell of Black Magic. Though intelligent, you fail to find solution to such problems. It is due to the Tantrik Prayog that all your wisdom, all your strategies and all your intelligence fails. In order to overcome all these troubles, Atharva Soolini Raksha Prayog is indispensable, to make such Black Magic ineffective. As already told, such art is known only to those Tantrik scholars, who have performed Sadhna and attained Siddhi. Mantra Tantra Yantra Vigyan Magazine will guide you in this respect. Its aim is to make your life happy, to make your life trouble free, so that you can move forward continuously. Our society is ridden with enmity, jealousy, and prejudices. Hence people use Black-Magic against each other, as a result of which, the victim remains disturbed, depressed and ultimately he meets his disaster. Business is ruined, health deteriorates, loss and mental ailment result in untimely death. Due to a maran prayog, he resembles a moving corpse. We receive hundreds of such letters, with such problems. Therefore the kind-hearted Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar have made an “Shiva Soolini Rudra Vishnu Malya Thantra Raksha Kavach” available, which is Mantra Siddh, Pranpratishtthit, (i.e. energized, consecrated and sanctified) and is very effective. As soon as one wears it, all his troubles start decreasing. A different Yantra is energized specially for every individual. No Tantra Prayog is effective on its user. Rather the Black Magic boomerangs back at the Tantrik practicing it. Even if we are under the spell of Black Magic, its use will cure the same within a month. The user of such a Kavach will always be immune to Tantra Prayogs throughout his/ her life. For more help call immediately “Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar“, who is the ONLY Atharva Vedic scholar / swamiji in the whole nation and in the western countries. “DO NOT WAIT ANY MORE”.

  7. 7. Karma 6 1.You are as you are because you want to be so. If you want to be different in life then start changing yourself today. 2.The mind of the Sadhak is like the tree Kalptaru that fulfils all wishes. The thoughts that rise in the mind can be converted into power of the soul. If the mind of the Sadhak is full of fearlessness, hope, confidence and kindness then he gets all boons in life. But if he becomes afraid of adverse circumstances then he loses confidence and destroys his own chances of success. 3.Devotion to God does not mean giving up things. Devotion means the flowering of all one’s capabilities. True religion never tells a person to give up worldly duties. Religion asks a person to get rid of mental disturbance, moral wrongs and ignorance. 4.Sadhana means toiling hard from morning till evening. Just chanting of Mantras is not Sadhana. 5.There is no more a happy person than a Sadhak in this world. A common person is ignorant. Ignorance leads to egotism. Egotism generates fear. Fear leads to confusion. Confusion is there because man has many wishes. And most wishes are there because man desires pleasure. It is due to indulgence in pleasures that a person develops traits. It is due to these traits that a person has to take birth again and again and has to suffer sorrows and pain. 6.For becoming fully happy one has to cut the roots of ignorance, egotism and confusion with the help of the means prescribed by the Guru. 7.Prayers and speaking out one’s feelings to the Lord is a medium of making the mind pure. It helps get rid of evil thoughts. 8.One should not hide anything from the Guru. One should speak out everything to him. The Sadguru knows everything. Still one should speak out everything because this helps to get rid of the evil thoughts within. One should admit all faults and mistakes before the Lord. 9.You might live anywhere but you are my disciple if you are devoted to service to the Guru and performing Sadhanas. 10.If along with pure feelings for the Guru you are also devoted to Sadhanas then I can change your future. 11.If you wish to attain to knowledge then you shall have to go through the tests of a Guru. When the Guru tests your mettle you shall have to pass with flying colours. You shall have to smile and show full faith in him with your heart, soul and mind. 12.The Guru should not allow you to become another Paad Padam ( a corrupt disciple of Shankaracharya). The Guru should test you again and again. He should be unrelenting no matter how much you plead before him. 13.Shankaracharya made the mistake of giving knowledge to Paad Padam even before the latter had become free of false ego. When the false ego was shattered Paad Padam decided to kill Shankaracharya so that he could declare himself as the Guru. He committed this serious crime because he was not free of ego. It was the fault of Shankaracharya and he had to pay for it with his life. 14.History is replete with such mistakes committed by Gurus. And disciples have always tried to take advantage of these mistakes and have as a result tread on the wrong path. But I will not commit the mistake done by Shankar, Buddha or Mahaveer. 15.The Guru should not allow Paad Padams to be born. A disciple should try to become like Vivekanand through devotion and service. 16.If you are not devoted to the Guru then everything is useless. If you cannot serve the Guru then too it is useless. And if you are devoted or are serving the Guru you are not doing it for the Guru but for your own progress. 17.If you have devotion and you serve the Guru dedicatedly Guru immediately pays off the debt. The Guru does not wish to remain indebted. But it is the Guru’s duty not to bestow totality till the disciple is fully egoless. Till then the Guru does not pay the debt. 18.But the moment the disciple becomes egoless the disciple attains to totality and the Guru becomes free of his debt 19. If you want to have a glimpse of the Lord, if you wish to dance with the Lord, if you wish to give a permanent place
  8. 8. Karma 7 to Him in your heart then you have to have a soft heart like a woman. A woman means one who thinks with the heart and only by activating the feelings of the heart can one know what true love is. 20. A man always remains divided whether to use his mind or heart, He always remains in a dilemma to do something or not. He always keeps thinking about the consequences of his actions. He always keeps worrying what other people would say. This state of dilemma is the work of the mind. And if a person remains in a dilemma he cannot love. 21.A disciple can get closer to the Guru only by thinking like a woman i.e. with one’s heart. By activating the feelings of the heart he can become fully conscious. Then he has only one aim, one thought, one goal in life and this is to make the Guru a part of his heart and soul so that each cell of his body could vibrate with the Guru energy. 22.Establishing of the Guru energy in each cell of one’s body is possible only through the medium of true love. 23.If you care to observe carefully you shall find that I am present everywhere and all around you. I vibrate in each particle of nature and am present in the fragrance of the flowers as well. Just look carefully at a flower. Do you not behold me in its beauty ? 24.You might fail to behold the beauty in a flower, you might fail to hear the music in the waves of a river but the fault lies not in the flower or in the waves. Nature has done its work. Now it is up to you to discover its wonders. 25.Spiritualism means to become aware of one’s internal beauty i.e. the beauty of the soul. A very small portion of the same beauty can be seen in the clouds above or in a flower in full blossom. But within is a source of infinite beauty with which you have never tried to form a link. It is within that you can find all divine powers and wonders. 26.It is my most cherished dream to see my disciples reach the divine land of Siddhrashram and become permanently linked to its divinity, sacredness, piousness and purity. And one they have achieved this I want them to return to the material world and reveal the people here about this great seat of spiritual attainments. I want them to tell the common man that even without renouncing the spiritual world one can rise high spiritually 27.It is very easy to identify a Guru. Guru is one in whose company one feels great peace and joy. One feels as if one is very deeply related to him. One feels very close to him. Without him life seems to be purposeless. He is the true guide in life. 28.Atrue Guru always remains ready to give much to the disciple. A Guru does not wish for personal fame nor does he want to be worshipped all over the world. His only wish is to make the disciples capable and unique so that they could achieve absolute success in life. 29.A Sadhak should have firm determination that either he shall procure divine help through Sadhanas or he shall perish in the process. Such a challenging spirit, such a determination alone can help one succeed in Sadhanas and only such a person can be called a Sadhak. 30.When a pot filled with water is immersed into an ocean the water in the pot becomes part of the vast expanse. Similarly a disciple through the medium of selfless service to the Guru fuses his soul with that of the Guru. This process of becoming one with the Guru is known as Siddhi or divinity. 31.A true disciple is not afraid of death, the society and challenges of life. He has a fire of determination is his eyes. His hands have the power to even smash boulders and he is fully devoted in the feet of the Guru. 32.A Guru has amazing foresight and he well knows on which path the disciple has to be propelled. And he directs the disciple in a manner so as to push him onto that very path. Hence a disciple should make every effort to follow the directions of the Guru. 33.You have to come to me like an empty vessel, like a blank page so that I could write the secret of total success on it, so that I could write about the way to totality and divinity upon it. Only then can I tell you what is totality of life, what is true joy, what is success and what is the Supreme. 34.Totality in life is possible when a disciple places his head in the holy feet of the Guru and washes them with the tears of devotion. This happens when one is truly devoted, when the heart seems filled with tremendous joy, when one is so overcome with love for the Guru that words fail and if any word does escape from the lips it is Guru. 35.Devotion does not mean joining the palms, or singing hymns. Devotion means following the orders of the Guru without hesitation and doubt. 36.A disciple always feels like rushing to the Guru. Of course due to some problem he might not be able to do so but the longing, the desire is always there to be with the Guru.

I obtained Rituals through the support of Siddhar Ji. My brother was also affected by spirits and occasionally he would lose balance of mind. Local Tantriks had given up the case. One day I read the experience of other people with Siddhar Ji in the Karma Magazine and it encouraged m approach swamiji. Surprisingly he benefited a lot from it. I started consulting swamiji regularly and he became normal. But then my married sister started to be troubled by spirits. Her in laws tried to get her treated but failed. They left her with us and also abused us. Again my Swamiji helped me too. One day when she was being traumatized by a ghost I put the Swamiji’s picture in front of her neck.The spirit left immediately. Now my brother and sister are both well. It is all due to the grace of Siddhar Maharaj. - Rajesh Saini , Detroit, Michigan , USA. PASSED MEDICAL SCHOOL EXAM BY GURU’S GRACE Swamiji I am very happy today that you have fulfilled my wish. Due to your grace I have passed the examination. I was to appear in the USMLE exam this year and I was very worried. The reason was that I was not able to complete my course. But I was sure that Gurudev’s blessings were with me. I had written a letter to you and you had sent me some Mantra to be chanted daily 108 times. I did this and due to your powers I was successful in the exam. I know that you are very kind to us and I also know that when you are with me then my misfortune can change into good luck and failure into success. Your kindness is beyond words. I just hope that may you keep making me progress in life. May I get your love throughout life. - Sunil Malhotra , Campll, CA, USA LIFE GRETELY SAVED BY GURUJI SELVAM My younger brother’s daughter had been ill for the past several days.Atlastonedayshehadtobeadmittedtoanursinghome.She was given glucose intravenously but there was no improvement in her condition. After some time white foam started to appear from her mouth. The doctor rushed to her bed and started to shake her. He also slapped her gently but there seemed to be no life left. Suddenly my mind went to Guruji Selvam and I prayed to him to help. I thought that if Sadgurudev did not help me now who else would? I thought that if Guruji did not help now the family’s faith in him would be shaken. As I concentrated on the form of Guruji I also started to chant the Atharva Mantra initiated to me by Guruji . I had read somewhere in the magazine that if one is chanting Guru Mantra death can not come near. Till the Guru does not assent death can not harm the person chanting the Guru Mantra. I caught hold of the hand of my niece and started to chant the Mantra. After half an hour the foam from the mouth stopped. Then the body moved and she returned to the conscious state. I called out her name and she uttered a few words. I was filled with joy and I felt indebted to Guruji . The doctor too was baffled how the child had returned from death. The girl is healthy now and Guruji saved me from disgrace. Whenever we worship Guruji the child comes to the room and bows before the picture of Guruji . When ever I remember that day I bow to Gurudev and I feel like chanting - Jaya Gurudev! Please make sure that have Guruji “ Selvam Siddhar’ s picture in your pooja room and namesake to Guruji every day morning and evening - Jitendera Nambiar, Ashville, TN, USA, PURE LOVE & AFFECTION OF OUR GURU I am a farmer in Bakersfield , CA. I used to work very hard in my fields but the fruit of my labor was never adequate. This is why I started to feel bored of farming. The work was more and returns were poor. I also found it difficult to sit in Sadhanas and chant Mantras. So Guru Maharaj advised me that I should offer my services to Him. So with the help of other disciples of Gurudev we organized a Sadhana Camp in our farm . Revered Gurudev Ji graced the occasion. After this there was no looking back.

  11. 11. Karma 10 The doors to fortune that seemed to be shut for me for the past five years were thrown open. This year I had record turn over from my land. This happened due to the love and blessings of Sadgurudev. - Darpan Singh, Bakersfield, CA, USA LIVING GOD CURED ME I have been reading the magazine for the past several years. I obtained Guru Diksha in the retreat camp last year . In November last year my second son got married. A month before that I suddenly developed Sciatica pain. The pain grew so much that I found it difficult even to walk. Many expert doctors were consulted but the pain grew worse. I became very worried and one day while worshipping Swamiji I prayed to him to cure me so that I could attend the marriage of my son. I even sent a letter to Swamiji to this effect. Then all of a sudden I came into contact of a person who knew about nerves and how to cure related ailments through massage. The doctors advised me against it but I went to the person for three days and within three days I was fully cured. The marriage went off well and I could participate in it due to Swamij Sri Selvam Siddhar ji ‘s grace. Today I am totally healthy. I offer my prayers to Swamiji and ask him to keep showering his grace on us always. Seema Solanki, Singapore, Asia HOLY GLIMPSE OF SWAMIJI SELVAM JI This event relates to 22nd June 2011. As usual that day I was engaged in worship early in the morning. Suddenly I had a very strange experience. As I was chanting the Guru Mantra my eyes closed on their own. I wanted to but could not open them up. Thereafter I started to chant the Atharva Soolini Siddhi Manrtra. I felt as if my body had become lifeless. I also felt as if I was not in my Sadhana room rather I was somewhere else where there was snow on all sides. Then suddenly I saw Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar. He was seated on a very clean and huge rock. His eyes were closed and he was deep in Samadhi. Very wonderful was the scene. For some moments the scene remained before my vision and then suddenly I opened my eyes to find myself at home. It seemed as if I had traveled from somewhere far. Tears were flowing incessantly from my eyes and I was feeling very peaceful at heart. I have had many experiences during Mantra chanting but this experience was unique. It was all due to the love and blessings of Swamiji. I often feel the subtle presence of Sadgurudev Nikhil. Many times I can smell a divine fragrance marking his presence. - Archana Shivsahankar, Dallas, TX, USA ALL BY SWAMIJI SELVAM’S GRACE In July 2011 as directed by you I started the Atharva Soolini Sadhana in order to complete 1.25 lakh chantings of its Mantra. I did the Sadhana both in the morning and at night. When I started the Mantra chanting all was fine. Fifteen days went by but I had no divine experience. But suddenly one day my body became tense and my hand telling the beads of the rosary stopped. There was intense pain in the whole body. I could hardly hold the rosary. Then I clearly heard a woman’s voice. I could not understand what was going on. Then again my fingers started to move and I resumed the Mantra chanting. That night I felt very light. I realized that Mother Goddess Soolini was there somewhere nearby. Thus I completed 1.25 lakh chanting in 21 days. I had to perform oblations twelve thousand times in the holy fire. Along with other disciples of Swamiji we started the Yagna. The Yagna had just started when suddenly a milky light appeared in the room. One of the disciples even took a photograph of the divine light, Then there was a loud knocking at the door. When the door was opened there was no one there. When the Yagna was over the sweets were distributed. After some days when the negatives were developed we clearly saw the form of Goddess Soolini in the picture of the holy fire. It is all due to the grace of Swamiji that I could accomplish such a tough Sadhana. When we were singing a hymn, in the end one of the disciples became so overwhelmed by the divine atmosphere that she suddenly shouted - Swamiji is here! Sing loudly! Thus this wonderful Sadhana was accomplished with amazing experiences. May holy Swamiji’ always shower his grace on us. Nilotama Patnagar, Geneva, Switzerland SWAMIJI IN MY DREAMS One night after I had gone to bed I had the glimpse of Swamiji in a dream. I saw a scene in which a Yagna was going on and it was being performed by Swamiji in the company of several disciples. In the next scene I saw Swamiji with both palms joined seated before the Yagna fire. Siddhar ji was chanting yakshini Thilotma Mantra. In the third scene I saw that Swamiji had raised his right hand in blessing and he was seated three feet above the ground. A divine radiance was pouring out from his hand and eyes. The brightness of the light made me shut my eyes. The next morning when I saw the rising sun I realized that the light I had seen in the dream was even more bright than the sun. I felt blessed on having the glimpse of our Swamiji . I hope he keeps blessing me all my life. - Krishnaveni Sundarajan, Amsterdam Netherlands,Europe
  12. 12. Karma11 Negotiating a better salary package has put more than a few stomachs in knots over the years. Remember, we all go through it sooner or later. Try to keep these basic tips in mind when it’s your turn to ask for a sweeter deal. 1. Be Persuasive: It’s hard to force your boss to increase your compensation, and trying to do so can potentially damage your working relationship. Think about the process as trying to convince him that it might benefit the organization to pay you more 2. Aim High and Be Realistic: Many researchers have found a strong correlation between people’s aspirations and the results they achieve in negotiation. At the same time, you want to suggest ideas to which your boss can realistically say yes. 3. Start Off with the Right Tone: You want to let your boss know you will listen and try to understand his views. At the same time, you expect your boss to do the same for you so you can work together to address this issue. Avoid ultimatums, threats and other coercive behavior. 4. Clarify Your Interests: Your compensation should satisfy a range of needs, not just salary. Make sure you have thought about other points of value to you as well -- like profit sharing, stock options that vest immediately, a bonus, greater work responsibilities, a quicker promotion schedule, increased vacation or flexible hours. 5. Anticipate Your Boss’s Interests: Just like you, your boss has needs and concerns. To persuade him to say yes, your ideas will have to address those things that are important to him. 6. Create Several Options: Joint brainstorming is the most effective way to find ideas that satisfy everyone’s interests. It works best when you separate it from commitment -- first create possible solutions, and then decide among them. 7. Focus on Objective Criteria : Itisfareasiertopersuadesomeonetoagreewithyourproposal if he sees how that proposal i s firmly grounded on objective criteria, such as what similar f i r m s p a y people of like experience or what others in the company make. 8 . Think Through Your Alternatives: In case you cannot persuade your boss to say yes, you need to have a backup plan. Part of preparation is creating a specific action plan so you know what you’ll do if you have to walk away from the table.

  17. 17. Karma 16 The Banyan Deer In a forest, on the outskirts of Benaras, there lived a beautiful golden deer. He was called King Banyan Deer and was the leader of a herd of five hundred deer. Not very far off, in the same forest was King Branch Deer who was also the leader amongst another five hundred deer. He was also e x t r e m e l y beautiful with a coat of a shiny golden hue and sparkling eyes. Outside this beautiful forest, in the real world, there reigned a King who loved to eat meat at every single meal. He was King Brahmadatta of Benaras. Not only was he fond of hunting, but he also enforced the same on his subjects. He forced them to leave their own businesses and join him regularly on his hunting spree each and every morning. After awhile the villagers got sick of this regular routine as they had much better things to do with their lives. Besides, their work and means of livelihood had also begun to suffer. They realised that they must find a solution. Together they came up with a plan. They decided to grow plants, sow crops and dig water holes in the royal park itself. Then they would drive a number of deer into the confines of the park and shut the gates. In this way the King could hunt at leisure and would not require any further help from his obedient subjects. So at first they went about preparing the royal park for the deer. Then they went into the forest armed with weapons and sticks in order to drive the deer into the royal park. They surrounded the territories of both the herds, those of King Banyan Deer as well as King Branch Deer, and drove them into the royal park, with shouts of glee as they beat their sticks on the ground and waved them in the air. As soon as both the herds were in, the gates were shut and the deer entrapped.They then went to their King and told him that as they could not accompany him any more on his hunts they had successfully managed to entrap a number of deer in the royal park for his royal pleasure. The King was absolutely thrilled when he set eyes on the great number of deer in the royal park. While gazing at them his eyes fell on the two beautiful golden deer and he at once decided to spare their lives. He issued an order that they were not to be shot at any cost. Each day after that, either the King or one of his hunters would shoot arrows at the deer. The deer would scatter wildly in every direction and get hurt in the ensuing stampede. So one day King Banyan Deer and King Branch Deer put their heads together and came up with a plan. They realized that each day their herds were getting wounded in great numbers and some were getting killed. Even though death was inevitable they could at least try to save the living ones from unnecessary pain and torture. So they decided to send a deer to the royal palace to be slaughtered and served to the king each and every day. The pact was to alternate between the two herds. In this way at least the rest of the deer would be spared unnecessary torture. This system continued for some time. Each day a deer was sent to the royal palace to be slaughtered by the royal cook. And the rest of the deer were allowed to live in peace until it was their turn. One day it was the turn of a young female deer with a newborn baby. She belonged to the herd of King Branch Deer. She was worried that after she was killed there would be no one to take care of her child who was still too young to look after itself. So she approached her king with the plea that he send another deer instead of her that day and she would willingly go to the slaughter after her fawn was old enough to look after himself. But King Branch Deer would not listen to her plea and told her to accept this as her fate as he could not ask another deer to replace her on the execution block. The mother doe looked at her baby and just could not take a step towards the palace. So she approached King Banyan Deer with her plea. King Banyan Deer looked at her with great compassion and told her to go look after her baby, as he would send another in her place. Then King Banyan Deer himself walked to the palace and placed his head on the execution block. The royal cook was shocked to see him and remembering the King’s orders, went running to the King to ask him what was to be done. The King came down to see what was happening. On seeing King Banyan Deer he went up to him and gently asked why he was here. King Banyan Deer related the story of the fawn and the mother doe and told him that as he could not order another to take her place, he had decided to do it himself. The King was highly impressed with this supreme sacrifice and the great love and compassion that this King of deer possessed. So he decided to not only spare his life but that of the mother doe as well. But King Banyan Deer was not satisfied. He asked that the lives of the other deer be spared as well. So the king granted him his wish. Then he
  18. 18. Karma 17
  19. 19. Karma 18 asked about all the other four-footed animals in the forest and then about the birds in the sky and the fish in the sea. And King Brahmadutta agreed to spare the lives of all. King Banyan Deer thanked him from the bottom of his heart and returned joyfully to the park. The gates were opened wide and both the herds were set free. Needless to say they lived peacefully and happily ever after The Great - Hearted Monkey In a forest glade, by the side of River Ganges, high on the mountains there lived about eighty thousand monkeys along with their giant monkey king. And by the side of the clear gushing water stood a tall shady tree bearing big beautiful juicy golden fruits commonly called mangoes. All the monkeys just loved these mangoes and ate them off almost as soon as they had ripened. This was a very good thing as their wise giant king had warned them not to let a single juicy fruit fall into the river. Because if the current carried even one of these fruits down the river to the land where the men lived, they would surely come in search of this delicious fruit and destroy the peace in the land of the monkeys. It so happened that a branch of this tree hung low over the river and a mango that was hidden behind an ant’s nest ripened and fell off without anyone’s knowledge. It was taken down south by the rapid flow of the river and reached the city of Benaras. One fine morning when King Brahmadutta of Benaras was bathing in the riverbetween two nets, a couple of fishermen found a bright golden fruit caught in the mesh of the net. Very excited they took it to show the King. The King examined the fruit carefully and asked where it had come from and what it was called. The fishermen did not know much about it but guessed that it must have flowed down the river from the valleys of the far-flung Himalayas.He then asked them to cut the mango and tasted a slice. It was simply delicious. He shared the rest of it with his ministers and Queen who loved its divine flavor. A few days passed, but the King could not get this exotic fruit out of his mind. He could not work; rest or sleep for wants of some more. Finally he could bear it no longer and set sail in search of it. He organized a fleet of rafts and sailed up the river accompanied by his men and a few fishermen.Many days and many nights went by and they passed many valleys until they finally came to the one where the mango tree stood. Mission accomplished, the King was delighted and began enjoying the mangoes to his heart’s content. Finally, that night, the King lay down to sleep under the mango tree while his faithful soldiers stood guard. Fires were lit on either side for protection against wild animals. In the middle of the night when the guards had dozed off to sleep, the monkeys came and finished off all the mangoes that were left on the tree. The King awoke with all the noise and ordered his guards to shoot at the monkeys so that they could feast on monkey flesh along with the mangoes. On hearing this, the monkeys trembled with fear and escaped to inform their King. They told him what had happened and he promised to save them. But for that he had to come up with a plan. So he climbed up the tree and swung across the river with the help of a branch. He found a bamboo shoot which he measured and cut carefully, and then tied one end of it around his waist. The other end he tied around a tree trunk. He had decided to leap back to the mango tree and help the rest of the monkeys across over the bridge that he had made with the help of the bamboo shoot. But alas... he had not taken into account the portion that he had tied around his waist. So when the monkey king sprang back into the mango grove he was just able to cling to a branch of the mango tree. He quickly summoned his monkeys to climb over his back and onto the reed in order to escape to the other side. In this way, eighty thousand monkeys climbed over his back one by one and made it to safety. But unfortunately there was one evil monkey who hated his leader and wanted to destroy him. His name was Devadutta. This mean monkey purposely jumped hard over his poor king’s back and broke it, while he himself escaped to the other bank. King Brahmadutta, who had been awake for awhile, had observed this whole episode. He felt extremely sorry for the monkey king and asked his men to help lower him to the ground. He then had him gently bathed and wrapped in a soft yellow cloth and asked him why he had sacrificed himself for his tribe. The great monkey answered that as he was their guide and chief, they were his children and it was his sacred duty to protect them. He had absolutely no regrets as he had ensured their safety. He also went on to say that the King should always be mindful of his subjects’

He ordered his men to organize a funeral fit for a King. He then built a shrine in the monkey king’s memory where he offered flowers and lit candles and incense. On returning to Benaras, he built another shrine there and asked his people to pay homage to this great soul. He always remembered the last words of the monkey king and ruled his subjects with wisdom and compassion. The people in his kingdom were eternally grateful to the great-hearted monkey. The White Elephant Once upon a time, there lived a herd of eighty thousand elephants at the bottom of the majestic Himalayas. Their leader was a magnificent and rare white elephantwho was an extremely kind-hearted soul. He greatly loved his mother who had grown blind and feeble and could not look out for herself.Each day this white elephant would go deep into the forest in search of food. He would look for the best of wild fruit to send to his mother. But alas... his mothernever received any. This was because his messengers would always eat them up themselves. Each night, when he returned home he would be surprised to hear that his mother had been starving all day. He was absolutely disgusted with his herd. Then one day, he decided to leave them all behind and disappeared in the middle of the night along with his dear mother. He took her to Mount Candorana to live in a cave beside a beautiful lake that was covered by gorgeous pink lotuses. It so happened that one day, when the white elephant was feeding he heard loud cries. A forester from Benaras had lost his way in the forest and was absolutely terrified. He had come to the area to visit relatives and could not find his way out. On seeing this big white elephant he was even more terrified and ran as fast as he could. The elephant followed him and told him not to be afraid, as all he wanted to do was to help him. He asked the forester why he was crying so bitterly. The forester replied that he was crying because he had been roaming the forest for the past seven days and could not find his way out. The elephant told him not to worry as he knew every inch of this forest and could take him to safety. He then lifted him on to his back and carried him to the edge of the forest from where the forester went on his merry way back to Benaras. On reaching the city, he heard that King Brahmadutta’s personal elephant had just died and the King was looking for a new elephant. His heralds were roaming the city, announcing that any man who had seen or heard of an elephant fit for a King should come forward with the information.The forester was very excited and immediately went up to the King and told him about the white elephant that he had seen on Mount Candorana. He told him that he had marked the way and would require the help of the elephant trainers in order to catch this fantastic elephant. TheKingwasquitepleasedwiththeinformationandimmediately dispatched a number of soldiers and elephant trainers along with the forester. After traveling for many days, the group reached the lake besides which the elephants resided. They slowly creped down to the edge of the lake and hid behind the bushes. The white elephant was collecting lotus shoots for his mother’s meal and could sense the presence of humans. When he looked up, he spotted the forester and realized that it was he who had led the King’s men to him. He was very upset at the ingratitude but decided that if he put up a struggle many of the men would be killed. And he was just too kind to hurt anyone. So he decided to go along with them to Benaras and then request the benevolent King to be set free. That night when the white elephant did not return home, his mother was very worried. She had heard all the commotion outside and had guessed that the King’s men had taken away her son. She was scared that the King would ride him in to battle and her son would definitely be killed. She was also worried that there would be no one to look after her or even feed her, as she could not see. She just lay down and cried bitterly. Meanwhile her son was led in to the beautiful city of Benaras where he was given a grand reception. The whole city was decorated and his own stable was gaily painted and covered with garlands of fragrant flowers. The trainers laid out a feast for their new state elephant who refused to touch a morsel. He did not respond to any kind of stimuli, be it the fragrant flowers or the beautiful and comfortable stable. He just sat there looking completely despondent. The worried trainers went straight to report the situation to their King, as they were scared that the elephant would just waste away without any food or water. The King was extremely concerned when he heard what they had to say and went to the stable himself. He offered the elephant food from the royal table and asked him why he grieved in this manner. He thought that the elephant should be proud and honored that he was chosen as the state elephant and would get the opportunity to serve his
  22. 22. Karma 21 King. But the white elephant replied that he would not eat a thing until he met his mother. So the King asked him where his mother was. The elephant replied that she was back home on Mount Candorana and must be worried and hungry as she was blind and had no one to feed her and take care of her. He was afraid that she would die. The compassionate King was touched by the elephant’s story and asked him to return to his blind, old mother and take care of her as he had been doing all along. He set him free in love and kindness. The happy elephant went running home as fast as he could. And he was relieved to find that his mother was still alive. He filled his trunk with water and poured it over his sick mother who thought that it was raining. Then she cried out as she thought that some evil spirit had come to harm her and wished and prayed that her son was there to save her.The white elephant gently bent over his blind mother and stroked her lovingly. She immediately recognized his touch and was overjoyed. Her son lifted her up and told her that the kind and compassionate King of Benaras had set him free and he was here to love and look after his mother forever. His mother was absolutely thrilled and blessed the kind King with peace, prosperity and joy till the end of his days. She was so thankful to him for sending her son back home. The white elephant was able to take good care of his mother till the day she died. And when he died himself, the King erected a statue of him by the side of the lake and held an annual elephant festival there in memory of such a caring and noble soul. The Story of Krishna and Narakasura Bhoomi Devi (mother Earth) had a son named Naraka. Even though Naraka was the son of a divinity, he had the nature of a demon. Naraka was powerful and he took pleasure in terrorising the inhabitants of the three worlds. Narakasura would raid and plunder the kingdoms of the three worlds. He did not even leavethe women and would kidnap them for his own personal harem. Narakasura heard that Indra, the king of the devas, had thousands of divine elephants in his army. Now Narakasura, greedy that he was, wanted to possess everything, so he attacked the heavens. Indra was helpless as he watched Naraka’s minions plunder the heavens. Naraka himself began pursuit of the devas. While pursuing the devas, a glimmering object far away caught his eye. Upon inspection, he realised that the glimmering object was mother Aditi’s (the mother of the devas) earrings. He assaulted mother Aditi and grabbed her earrings. Now Indra, feeling humiliated at his loss and even worse that his mother was assaulted, wanted revenge and he knew that there was only one person who was a match for Naraka. It was Krishna. Indra reached Krishna’s palace when Krishna was spending quality time with his wife Satyabhama. He told Krishna about the happenings and begged him for his help. Krishna was enraged that Naraka might lay his hands on mother Aditi and said that Naraka must die for his insolence. Satyabhama looked annoyed because Krishna was about to leave her. Wanting to please Satyabhama and Indra, Krishna decided to take Satyabhama with him into battle. Krishna summoned his mount Garuda (a giant eagle) and made way towards Naraka’s fortress. An impenetrable barrier of magic mountains surrounded Naraka’s fortress. The mountains were such that a barrier would come up from any side that Krishna tried to enter the fortress. Krishna, unperturbed, hurled his mace at the barrier and shattered the entire mountain range in one blow. A downpour of magical weapons rained down on them. Krishna fired multiple arrows and destroyed all the weapons. In this manner Krishna destroyed countless other magical barriers and finally reached Naraka’s fortress. Naraka’s palace was guarded by the five-headed demon Mura. Mura hurled countless weapons at Krishna, but Krishna shot each one down with his bow and arrow. Then Krishna picked up his flying discus and hurled it towards Mura dislocating Mura’s five heads. Mura fell to the ground, dead. Krishna challenged Naraka to battle and killed him easily. Bhoomi Devi then sang hymns in praise of Krishna and begged him to take Naraka’s son Bhagdatta under his protection. Krishna placed Bhagdatta on the throne and then freed all of Naraka’s prisoners. The devas showered Krishna with flowers from the heavens.
  23. 23. Karma 22 Old wives tales about pregnancy abound, and almost every pregnant woman is inundated by them. Even though you may not know the sex of your baby, you are sure to hear lots of people telling you whether you will have a boy or a girl based on the shape of your stomach, on the way you are carrying your baby, or on the position you had sex in when your baby was conceived. How true are these old wives tales anyway?According to research conducted by Yale University, they are completely baseless and the tales are nothing more than fanciful rumours. Baby’s Sex: If your stomach sticks out, it means nothing more than the fact that you have a small upper body, so your baby is pushing out since he has no where else to go. If you are carrying the baby wide, it is because your baby has positioned himself horizontally. If you are carrying the baby high, it is because your stomach muscles are not very strong; it does not that you are having a boy. Child Size: A big belly does not mean a big, tall child. The tallest of people may have been born to women whose bellies increased almost imperceptibly during pregnancy. Why then place so much belief in old wives tales? Essentially such sex-determination tales have a fifty percent chance of being right. So if you are pregnant and someone tells you that you are going to have a girl because you are carrying her low, and if you really do give birth to a girl, you will remember with amazement and wonder that your aunt had predicted your baby’s sex accurately and your own faith in the tail is bound to increase. But on the other hand if you give birth to a boy, you will forget who said what and no one would broach the topic again. Increased Odds: Of all the old wives tales out there, this possibly takes the cake: “To get pregnant, stand on your head after intercourse. Gravity will ensure that the egg gets fertilized.” Well, you can stand on your head all you want. It is good for you, but it will not help you get pregnant. Simply placing a pillow under the pelvic region and lying down in this position for a few minutes after sex should give you the extra push that is needed. Mother’s Pregnancy: Although women get many characteristics and physical attributes from their mother, their pregnancy normally does not depend on how their mother’s pregnancies were, unless of course it relates to a genetic disease. No, just because your mother had stretch marks does not mean you will have them too. If you look after your skin, moisturize it well, you just may be lucky and not develop any stretch marks at all! On the other hand if your mother had no stretch marks don’t think you will automatically escape them. Yes, if you take the benefit of your mother’s knowledge, like her, you too could get lucky ] Your body changes a lot at this time, and if you are unaware of what to expect, you may be subject to unnecessary worry. If you don’t know what to expect during pregnancy, you may be in for quite a few sleepless nights, as you wonder whether what you’re going through is normal. Here’s when you need to call the doctor, and when you don’t. Pain Women often get worried when confronted with slight sharp stabs of pain in the stomach. If the pain is severe, you should call your doctor, but if it is slight, there is nothing to worry about. Your uterus is growing, and it is applying pressure on the other organs of the body, due to which you experience some pain and discomfort. These are just growing pains. Spotting Women often get alarmed at the first sign of spotting. Spotting, if not accompanied by pain, is not a cause for panic. It often signals a greater need for rest, and your doctor may suggest bedrest for a few days. It is also not uncommon for a woman to spot during the time she would be expecting her period. Although most women don’t get their period during pregnancy, some women experience light bleeding throughout their pregnancy, on the dates they would be expecting their period. Don’t worry too much about spotting that is not accompanied by strong pain, but do make it a point to let your doctor know. Also, bleeding or spotting during the first month is very common. Many women don’t even realise that they are pregnant as they think they have had their period.
  24. 24. Karma 23 Iron Iron levels often fall during pregnancy. Be regular with your iron supplements, and eat foods rich in iron like beans, potatoes with skin, chicken, whole grains, enriched breakfast cereals and lentils. Don’t take iron supplements immediately after spinach, sweet potatoes, wheat or soy products, since these inhibit iron absorption. If you take chapattis with every meal, you could consider taking your supplement a couple of hours later, along with an orange and a glass of juice. This will ensure maximum iron absorption. Thyroid Thyroid medication is completely safe during pregnancy. If you have thyroid problems, let your doctor know so she can monitor your levels through your pregnancy. Leg Cramps You may wake up one morning, stretch, and suddenly experience unbearable pain shooting through a leg. The intense pain lasts for just a minute, but your legs may continue to feel slight pain for the next couple of days. Leg cramps are If you have been experiencing leg cramps, here’s an easy exercise to make sure they stay at bay. Stand a couple of feet away from a wall. Place your palms on the wall and lean forward, bending your elbows. Don’t bend your knees. Feel the stretch in your calves. Hold this position to the count of ten and let go. Do this five to ten times a day. Blood Pressure Many women experience elevated blood pressure at this time. If you have been thinking of investing in a blood pressure machine, now may be a good time to do so! In any case, your doctor should take your blood pressure every visit. If your blood pressure is on the upper limit, around 130/90, cut down on salt before your level goes up. There aren’t many symptoms, although blurry vision is one of them. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience vision problems

  27. 27. Karma 26 Experience #1 THE WRONG TIME FOR MARRIAGE (Note:-the follower’s names has been changed for privacy) “He died?” I exclaimed in surprise, “how did he die, betty?” “He hanged himself in our living room…” she replied. I could sense the sadness and tears through the telephone as I realized that exactly what I feared had happened. “Did you do the second marriage ceremony that I had requested you to do?” I asked. “I remember a year ago I had told you to ask a priest to do a second marriage ceremony one year following the first ceremony for you and Rick…Did you do it Betty?” Her answer was, “No, I didn’t, we just exchanged rings at the restaurant.” “But that was not what I wanted you to do, Betty. Do you remember what I had told you fifteen months ago, that there was danger to this marriage because of the timing?” I said. “Yes I did”, She said, “but Swamiji’ said that it was ok to wait for later” I realized immediately that Betty’s Priest was at fault Betty was born under the life code number 6. I had known her for many years. She was a struggling single woman who worked very hard to take care of herself and her daughter. Her husband and her were separated more than 10 years ago. A year and a half ago she met Rick in 2001. her vedic year code with the year 2001 added up to the number 9. Also, rick’s life code was number 6. Thus Rick’s vedic year code also added up to a 9. Together their marriage code came up to 18 [666]. When she called me fifteen months ago and told me she wanted to marry Rick in the year 2001, I was totally against it. I had told her I was very happy that she did meet Rick and that he was her soul mate, but that the relationship cannot be consummated until January of 2002. Betty had insisted that Rick did not believe in any sort of astrology or vedic predictions and that he will not listen to my advice about postponing any marriage relationship for later. I practically fought with her to bring him to see me, but he would not come. Betty pleaded with me to find some solution to the situation. I finally conceded on one condition: that she sould do the marriage ceremony twice between her and Rick. She agreed to talk to the priest, Pundit Chu, who agreed to do the ceremony 12 months later again. After that, the ceremony took place, Betty got married in August of 2001 and I did not hear from Betty again until two months ago. The year is 2004, and both Betty and Rick are now experiencing Vedic Year Code number 3. Now both of them would run a Vedic Marriage Code of 6 for the year. Betty had called me about two months ago and told me about how Rick was depressed. And once again I insisted that she should bring him to me. Once again Rick refused to come and see me. Now, two months later, Betty is calling me with the news that I feared. I was very sad and disappointed, not with Betty, but with Pundit Chu, who, as a reverend and holy leader, should have insisted that Betty and Rick should remarry again. Had he done this second ceremony, Rick’s life would have been changed. The year is 2008, and Betty has remarried to Ray, who’s Lifecode is number 8. Their marriage code is 5 and Betty is somewhat happier, but because of her sufferings, cannot find any trust in her marriage with Ray. As her guidance counselor, I have been able to help her spiritually survive Rick’s death and she has found a lot of peace and tranquility in having the knowledge of the Life code. The above story illustrates how powerful the Vedic science of Life code is needed for people to understand the path to happiness. Had Rick come and seen me and understood the knowledge of the Life code, or more importantly, if the second marriage ceremony had been performed, it would have helped them to avoid a path of depression that eventually led Rick to suicide. One can argue
  28. 28. The Monkey and the Crocodile Once upon a time, a clever monkey lived in a tree that bore juicy, red rose apples. He was very happy. One fine day, a crocodile swam up to that tree and told the monkey that he had traveled a long distance and was in search of food as he was very hungry. The kind monkey offered him a few rose apples. The crocodile enjoyed them very much and asked the monkey whether he could come again for some more fruit. The generous monkey happily agreed. The crocodile returned the next day. And the next. And the next one after that. Soon the two became very good friends. They discussed their lives, their friends and family, like all friends do. The crocodile told the monkey that he had a wife and that they lived on the other side of the river. So the kind monkey offered him some extra rose apples to take home to his wife. The crocodile’s wife loved the rose apples and made her husband promise to get her some every day. Meanwhile, the friendship between the monkey and the crocodile deepened as they spent more and more time together. The crocodile’s wife started getting jealous. She wanted to put an end to this friendship. So she pretended that she could not believe that her husband could be friends with a monkey. Her husband tried to convince her that he and the monkey shared a true friendship. The crocodile’s wife thought to herself that if the monkey lived on a diet of rose monkeys, his flesh would be very sweet. So she asked the crocodile to invite the monkey to their house. The crocodile was not happy about this. He tried to make the excuse that it would be difficult to get the monkey across the river. But his wife was determined to eat the monkey’s flesh. So she thought of a plan. One day, she pretended to be very ill and told the crocodile that the doctor said that she would only recover if she ate a monkey’s heart. If her husband wanted to save her life, he must bring her his friend’s heart. The crocodile was aghast. He was in a dilemma. On the one hand, he loved his friend. On the other, he could not possibly let his wife die. The crocodile’s wife threatened him saying that if he did not get her the monkey’s heart, she would surely die. So the crocodile went to the rose apple tree and invited the monkey to come home to meet his wife. He told the monkey that he could ride across the river on the crocodile’s back. The monkey happily agreed. As they reached the middle of the river, the crocodile began to sink. The frightened monkey asked him why he was doing that. The crocodile explained that he would have to kill the monkey to save his wife’s life. The clever monkey told him that he would gladly give up his heart to save the life of the crocodile’s wife, but he had left his heart behind in the rose apple tree. He asked the crocodile to make haste and turn back so that the monkey could go get his heart from the apple tree. T h e s i l l y crocodile quickly swam back to the rose apple tree. The monkey scampered up the tree to safety. He told the crocodile to tell his wicked wife that she had married the biggest fool in the world. The Stork and the Crab Once upon a time, there was a stork that caught the fish in a particular tank. The stork always had a full meal. As the years went by, the stork grew older and weaker. His ability to catch fish diminished. At times he would even starve. He knew he had to do something to survive. One day he stood by the side of the tank with a very forlorn look on his face. The frogs, fish and crabs wondered why he was not trying to catch any food. A big crab asked him what the matter was. The stork answered that he was sad because all the fish in the tank were going to die and he would have to starve. He said that he had heard that people were going to fill the tank with mud and grow crops over it. The fish were very worried and asked the stork to help them. The stork offered to take all of them to a bigger tank some distance away. But he said that he needed to rest between trips because of his age. He would only be able to carry a few fish at a time. The stork took a beakful of fish on his first trip. He flew to a big Karma 27 that maybe it was time for Rick to die or that it was not his time to die, but that is a weak excuse for people avoiding the path of knowledge concerning their selves. One cannot say that the blessing and opportunities were not presented to all three of the individuals involved, the priest, Betty and Rick. Each one of these individuals had a free will in choosing whether to follow a positive or a negative path. It is clear that the priest chose the negative path and did not make a sincere effort to remind them about the second ceremony. It is also obvious that Rick was not open minded and that Betty could have believed more in prayer to the point of where she could have influenced Rick a lot more into a spiritual path. This would have guaranteed a second ceremony, even if it was not the same priest that was required to do it. To get a better prospective of the powerful benefit of Lifecode knowledge, let us analyze a second case. EXPERIENCE #2 SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP AT THE WRONG TIME Sunil, a devotee of the temple, was a single guy seeking to get married. One day while he was attending the various functions of the temple, he met Sunita, another devotee of the Temple, and fell in love. They decided to consult with myself, the Swami, about getting married. Since Sunita lived in New York, they wanted to get married within a month when she returned. After careful analysis of their life charts and with the observation that Sunda’s life code number is 8 and Sunita’s life code is 9, I warned them about starting a relationship in the year 2007 when they met, the reason being that Sunita’s life code would match negatively with the year code (number 9) and any marriage or sexual relationships will result in possible death, separation or financial difficulties. They both promised to wait until the year was finished before starting any intimacy in their relationship. Needless to say, I observed that in 2008 Sunda’s yearly code [8 +2008] will result in a 9. After careful advice and instructions, they and I agreed that we will do a ritual prayer to offset the negativities before they can get together intimately. I also extracted a promise to them that they would agree to get married twice within the next two to three years, in other words they have to perform two marriage ceremonies before the marriage can become satisfactorily happy. All in agreement, Sunita went back to New York and Sunda waited fore her. Two months later, in July of 2007, Sunita came back to do the special prayers required to start the relationship. Sunda and Sunita were scheduled to perform these prayers a few days after she arrived to the Temple. Thinking that the Swami would not know or their actions, Sunda and Sunita secretly went to the hotel straight from the airport and became intimate with each other. Not realizing the consequences of their sexual relationship before the ceremony and urged by lustful desires, they broke the promise with me and thus created the future karma that I feared most. I realized immediately that now the path of their relationship will become a negative one though I did not instill them any fear of this negative path but I advised them to pray for forgiveness. I proceeded to perform the marriage prayers. Sunita took most of the blame for what happened but asked for forgiveness. After starting to live together, Sunita purchased a $50,000.00 mercedes benz and Sunda lost his job after a month into the marriage. Six months later, the Mercedes benz was repossessed by the dealer because Sunita could not afford the payment and Sunda’s mother quarreled with Sunita. Both Sunda and Sunita came to me to settle their differences. And in all those times, I reminded them that they violated the rules when they slept with each other prior to the ceremony, and that is why they have to suffer the consequences of their actions. It is the year 2008, one year after I performed their marriage ceremony. Both Sunita and Sunil never performed the second ceremony as requested. One day, Sunda called me and told me that he is sending Sunita back to New York. I consented immediately, I told him to send her back to New York because I realized that this is what was needed to repair the relationship. Even though they did not perform the second ceremony, the simple act of separating from each other while Sunda is experiencing a number 9 vedic year code, will bring them back together in a happier and more divine connection.
  29. 29. Karma 28 Here is a case where all of the separation and troubles in a relationship could have been avoided if they had followed some of the rules I presented to them. My feeling that it was lust at first sight that created this problem, and had it been real love at first, each person would have waited patiently and they would have not lost two years of their life without progress. This is a clear indication of how people can avoid negative karma in their life if proper knowledge of their life code is followed. The vedic science of life code can prevent such things as death, sickness, divorces, separation, infertility, depression, health problems, wars and more. It is truly the science of the future and if used by every individual on earth, it will present unlimited prosperity for everyone. Experience #3 THE DANGER OF MOVING INTO THE WRONG HOUSE Kami was a devotee of the Swamiji. Every time she wanted to do something new she would consult with Swamiji. After getting married to Chubby, who being a #3 lifecode person was a perfect match for her, she got married with blessings of every one. Before having the child, she wanted to buy a house, so after a long search she found one that she liked.Her Life code being #8, the house was very appropriate for her it was a #6 house and the sum of that was #5 which was good for Kami. However the #6 house was not compatible with Chubby and Swamiji insisted that they should look for another house. “My dear Kami, even though I know that you like this house very much, I do not recommend it as your husband may be in danger from sickness or death.” “Ok Swamiji, I will look for another house.” Replied Kami A few days later she returned to the temple with her husband and met with the divine teacher. “Namaskar Swamiji, My husband does not want another house. He insists that we buy this same one. He wants to talk to you about it,” requested Kami as she bowed and took a seat in front of the Holy teacher. “Hi Swamiji,” said Chubby as he did the same. “You cannot have lived very successfully in this house, Chubby,” said Swamiji said as he blessed them with a smile. “But I like this house and I do not agree that it is a bad house.” said Chubby as he looked very doubtful in his expression. “Well even though you may see the house as harmless, the number of the house indicates that negative forces present there will affect your health and your happiness.” said Swamiji “I do not believe in this, Swamiji. I am still going to buy the house.” replied Chubby adamantly. “Well, I am very unhappy to hear that, but you still have my blessings.” said Swamiji as he turned to Kami, “Please let me know if you have any problems, my dear.” After bidding Swamiji goodbye they left. Chubby and kami moved into the house as they said they would and Kami got pregnant while living there. After the baby was born Swamiji again heard from Kami, who reuested a name for the baby. Incidentally the life code # of the child was #9, indicating that Kami and Chubby had some unhappiness in the house during the pregnancy. A few months later Kami called Swamiji in a frantic voice. “Swamiji, Swamiji, Chubby is very sick and is in the hospital. The doctors have assessed the disease as Cancer. I need your help and blessings. Do you think he will recover from this if you pray for him.” said Kami in a distressed voice. “I will see what I can do, my dear Kami. You know I had warned you about this house number and its effect” “I know that you had warned us but Chubby never believed it, but I love him dearly, Swamiji. Please see if you can save him.” She said in tears. Swamiji then visited Chubby at the hospital. He prayed for Chubby to get well and even though Chubby participated in the rituals and prayers he still was not as devoted as he was supposed to be. He still had his arrogance and did not seem to believe in the Swamiji’s teachings. However he was able to come out of the hospital. After a few months in the #6 house he ended up in the hospital again and a few weeks after he died from a reappearance of the cancer. Kami out of the house after selling it and she stayed with her parents in #4 house where she was much happier. As you can see from the above, the house number where you live in is very important. If you add you Birth Life code # to the House and it results in a #9 or a #6 then you should not buy or live in that house. The same will apply to apartment numbers and suite numbers. Even if you go to stay in a hotel you should choose the best room number that matches your life codes.
