One's lucky numbers can be known and this can be used in one's profession.    More quality information about Astro-Numerology and a free Astro- Numerological Report can be had from http://www.astrologiavedica.com/html/numerology.htm   Astrology & Gemology   Richard Shaw Brown, Jr ( http://www.agt-gems.com/) gives a list of the Nava Ratnas along with secondary gems and their ruling planets.    1.RUBY, red spinel.red garnet,,and red tourmaline [rubellite] are ruled by the Sun    2.NATURAL PEARL,moonstone,white coral and natural[death] ivory are ruled by Moon     3.YELLOW SAPPHIRE,yellow topz,yellow beryl[helioder] and citrine are ruled by Jupiter    4.HESSONITE.orange zircon,spessertite and other orange garnets are ruled by Rahu    5.EMERALD.,tsavorite ,green tourmaline,diopside,peridot and jade are ruled by Mercury    6.DIAMOND,white[colorless] sapphire, white topaz, zircon and quartz are ruled by Venus    7.CHRYSOBERYL CAT'S EYE,beryl, apatite and tourmaline cat's eyes are ruled by Ketu    8.BLUE SAPPHIRE,tanzanite[blue zoisite],blue spinel, iolite amethyst are ruled by Saturn    9.RED CORAL.carnelian and bloodstone are ruled by Mars   More information about Planetary Gemology & a Gem Prescription Report can be had from http://www.eastrovedica.com/html/gem.htm    Astrology, Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda   Why holistic health practices fail or succeed partially Main reason for the failure of holisitc health practices is that Prana or Life Energy does not flow freely within the individual or between the individual & the universal life, owing to the presence of obstructions within.These obstructions are caused by Samskaras, psychic memories or residual traces of our past actions and experiences. Samskaras are of two kinds, those which only produce memories ( smriti ) of past experiences and those which produce impulses or drives to repeat these experiences ( vasanas) . These two are interlinked to form complex patterns of love, hate, fear etc. It is these complexes that obstruct the free flow of Life-Energy in us.    Removing Mental Blocks   Many of these complexes are formed in childhood and adolescence. Then unpleasant or traumatic experiences take place, the tendency of a child or teenager is to repress them. Repression is a form of pushing the psychic memories into the unconscious regions of the mind. The growing youth may not be able to recollect those psychic memories again, but the repressed samskaras lodged in the hidden recesses of the unconscious go on creating psychological and psychosomatic problems for him. All psychosomatic disorders cannot be cured by holistic health tech- iques unless these repressed complexities are ferreted out and onfronted. The past samskaras should be deactivated. For this the seeker has to dive deep into his unconscious & encounter the past experiences and deactivate them. Most people find it difficult to do it without the active help of a competent guide. Those who depend on the Ocean of Consciousness ( the Absolute or God ) may , however, find that these inner blocks are removed by Divine Grace.This is the rationale behind faith healing & miraculous cures.    Extension of Consciousness   Life,a gift from the Divine, is a great healing power. Nothing ever begins to be; Substance merely undergoes a parallel transformation into conditions which pre-existed in other conditions. Life, similarly, does not begin to be. As Energy, as per the Law of Conservation of Energy or Matter cannot be created or destroyed, so too is Life Eternal.    At the physical level, the eternal healing power of life manifests itself as    a) Self-renewal   b) The immune system.   For many years it has been known that the body can filter and re-use its fluids & repair damages to tissues, especially skin and bone, by growing new cells. Modern Science has shown that self-renewal is constantly taking place in every part of the body. Almost all the cells in the body are constantly being replaced by new ones. Somebody said " I am not the same person I was one year ago"! The entire body gets renewed in this way every year & this shows that it is never too late to regain your health. By changing one's basic attitudes and way of living, the damage to the body caused by years of misuse & neglect can be overcome. One the great marvels of the universe is the human immune system. Those who are aware of the biochemical processes going on in the body will agree with Walt Whitman " To me every hour of the day & night is an unspeakably perfect miracle". Dr Walter Cannon said " The Wisdom of the body is the most precise of all selective refinements" !    The Components ( Four Units ) of our Immune System   The fourfold immune system consists of the following units;   1 The granulocyte-macrophage unit   2. The lymphocyte unit   3. The antibody unit   4. The complement unit   The first two are varieties of white blood corpuscles, wherein the last two are chemicals, proteins. All the four units of our immune system launch a concerted attack on the invaders as soon as a few bacteria break into any tissue in the body. ( The antibody unit has been defined as an army of one million) Western medical science is wondering who masterminds this attack or who plans these strategies. Common sense, logic, intuition & experience suggest that somewhere behind all this there must be a master control. Why do sometimes cells become malignant and attack neighbouring cells ? Why it goes awry, sometimes,when our defence units attack innocent cells mistaking them for enemy microbes ? Western medical science is researching hard to find answers to these difficult questions.    A good site where you can get quality information about Holistic Medicine is http://www.holistic-alt.com/    Ayurveda, as the Science of Holistic Health is curative and restorative and its medicines do not have side effects. More info about Ayurveda can be had from http://www.chakrapaniayurveda.com/    Astrology & Yoga   Yoga is derived from the word "Yuj" which means to unite. Union with Cosmic Creative Intelligence is the aim of Yoga. The Fourfold Yoga has been prescribed for Cosmic Union in Oriental Philosophies.    They are   1. Union via Action ( Karma Yoga )   2. Union via Psychic Control ( Raja Yoga )   3. Union via Universal Love ( Bhakthi Yoga )   4. Union via Wisdom ( Jnana Yoga )   Union via Action is for the person of active temparament.   Union via Psychic Contro is for the person of adventurous temparament    Union via Universal Love is for the person of emotional temparament.    Union via Wisdom is for the person of intellectual temparament.    These four paths are not different from one another. They are all part of the Fourfold Yoga. Certain qualities are to be inculcated in the seeker if he is to achieve the Ultimate Goal. Prajna has been defined as the discriminative intellect. When the intellect discriminates between the Real & the Unreal. The intellect which discriminates between Being and Non-Being. This quality should be incorporated by the Intellectual Man if he is to progress in the path of Jnana Yoga.    Love is defined as the greatest of all the positive qualities of man. This quality is to be incorporated by the Emotional Man if he is to progress in the field of Bhakthi Yoga.    Control of Mind or Psychic Control through Raja Yoga should be incorporated by the Adventurous Man if he is to progress in the field of Raja Yoga.    Selfless Service should be incorporated by the Active Man if he is to progress in the field of Karma Yoga.    In other words, since the Fourfold Yoga has been prescribed for mankind , all these four great qualities - Selfless service, love, psychic control & the discriminative intellect should be incorporated by the spiritual aspirant to develop in the field of Yoga.    Yoga was defined by Aurobindo as a methodic process towards self-perfection through a development of the latent potential at the five levels of Being - physical, vital, mental, intellectual & spiritual. Normal man lives only in the first three sheaths - physical, vital & mental. Only when we use our hidden spiritual potential - the intell- ectual & the bliss sheaths - can be unfold our full mental potential.    More information about Transcendental Philosophy & Yoga can be had from http://www.eastrovedica.com/html/yoga.htm    Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra )   Vedanta focusses on the Sat ( Existence ) aspect of Absolute Being. Tantra, on the other hand, focusses on the Chit ( Knowledge ) aspect of Being. The Existence aspect is absolutely absolute while the Knowledge aspect takes care of the Absolute and the Relative.    More quality information about Tantra & Yantras can be had from http://www.astrologiavedica.com/html/yantra.htm   Books as the repository of all knowledge   The outpourings of the Intuitive Mind came to be known as great Literature, the rise and flow of Eternal Wisdom. While the Rational Mind of man focussed on Science, the Intuitive Mind of mind focussed on the supra-mundane, the sublime, the divine. Poetry was defined as the fulness of generation of Beauty. All knowledge of both the Rational and the Intuitive Minds were recorded as books, which remain as the source of all information.    More quality information about spiritual Books & CDs can be had from http://www.astrologiavedica.com/html/Books.htm         The twelve dimensions of life are represented by the twelve houses of the Zodiac.    The rising Sign at the Eastern Horizon is known as the Ascendant and is the First House.

Richard Shaw Brown, Jr ( http://www.agt-gems.com/) writes that the Vedic texts which state that pure flawless gems have auspicious powers ( Garuda Purana, Agni Purana) are correct. " After 25 years of researching and experimenting with gemstones, it is our carefully considered opinion that the Vedic texts are correct. Flawed gems are simply a source of misfortune, not to mention their being ugly ! Think about it ! How many people are prepared to tolerate defects in their clothing, or any other personal items they possess?. Even a single scratch on a nice automobile is an eyesore, so why do people tolerate flawed gems? "    Howard Beckman ( http://www.p-g-a.org/ ) writes that different Chakras absorb different cosmic colors and nourish particular glands in the body.    Diseases can be cured by using appropriate gems.   More information about Planetary Gemology & a FREE Gem Prescription Report can be had from http://www.astrologiavedica.com/html/planetarygemology.htm   Astrology, Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda Regulation of Food, Sleep and Exercise    " Food is medicine; Medicine is food " said Hippocrates. "Food is Brahman. Food was verily born before all creatures: therefore it is called the medicine for all" declares the Upanishads. By stating that food is the root cause of all ills & illnesses Vedanta have formulated one of the foundational principles of holistic health. At least half the ailments of man can be traced directly or indirectly to the problems of food. Regulation of food is not easy, because it is an addiction like alcohol. Problems like obesity, higher cholesterol level & irritable bowel syndrome crop up if food is not controlled. By controlling food, the whole body comes under control. "When taste is conquered everything is conquered " averrs Vedanta. What really matters is not how much we eat but how much of what we eat is transformed into bioenergy & the building materials of life.    Sir William Osler pointed out many years ago " Only a small percentage of what we eat nourishes us; the balance goes to waste and loss of energy". In holistic health, food should be revered & a proper attitude towards food should be developed. " Be thankful for all food, for food is Brahman " said Vivekananda. Six hours have been prescribed for all even though requirement of sleep varies from person to person Research studies have indicated that even moderate levels of exercise bolster the immune system. No amount of sleep is sufficient for unwinding the mind for it is always in a tense state under the stressful conditions of modern life. Antidotes to stress include yogic techniques like Meditation, prayer, cultivation of the Witness attitude & practice of absolute self-surrender to the Divine, which enable us to avoid a lot of unnecessary stress. Doing nothing or simply lying down is not relaxation. The muscles when stretched bring in relaxation as it frees them from the tense condition. Some of the yogic Asanas are highly effective because they can relax the muscles. There will be focal point in the body which reflects the mental tension which one finds oneself in. That focal point of mental tension should be identified and you can choose that type of yogic exercise which will relax the muscles & tendons of the specific focal point of tension in you.    A good site where you can get quality information about Holistic Medicine is http://www.holistic-alt.com/    Regulation of Breath "Breathlessness is deathlessness " averrs Yoga. Regulation of breath gives tremendous relaxation.Pranayama, without the help of a bona fide Master, can lead to serious complications. What is needed is the practice of breathing deeply ( as deeply as possible ) through both the nostrils & then slowly breathing out ( without breath retention ). This kind of regulated deep breathing can be done at any time, even in your office. Psychosomatic pain can be alleviated by these simple yogic techniques more effectively than allopathic pills or tablets. Here we employ the internal pharmacy of Skill power in lieu of the external pharmacy of Pill Power!     Vedic Holistic Medicine ( Ayurveda) gives priority to the Whole and not to the parts, contrary to chemotherapy which treats the parts only.    More info about Ayurveda can be had from http://www.chakrapaniayurveda.com/    Astrology & Yoga   All knowledge is threefold (" Thraigunya Vishaya Veda "). In Freudian Psycho-analysis we have three impulses, Id, Ego and Supergo. The Vedantic Satwa, Rajas and Thamas correspond to these impulses. The mind is always gripped by these three impulses. Sometimes we are Rajasic ( worldly ) and go after wealth. When intense anger and other negative emotions grip us, we are Thamasic. When divine qualities like Love and Peace influence us, we are Satwic ( divine ). The Ego with its ten heads ( symbolised as the ten-headed Ravana ) is the major block in attaining Self_Actualisation. The ten heads of the Ego are Lust,Anger,Pride, Avarice, Sloth, Covetousness, Attachment, Mind, Intellect, Conceit & Egoistic Mentality. Only when the ten heads of the Ego are removed can we hope to get Self-Realisation. ( Symbolically only when the Ravana in us is destroyed ). When we do our yoga, we will be assailed by three type of Ego. Rajasic ( wordly ), Thamasic ( bestial ) and Satwic ( noble ). In order to overcome the three types of Ego, we are given certain commandments.    " Ma the Sanghostha karmani " - (Let there be not in you any attachment to inaction. ) This commandment is given so that we can overcome the Thamasic ( bestial ) ego.    " Ma Karma Phala Heturbhoo " - ("Dont expect any reward") This commandment is given to protect us from the Rajasic ( wordly ) ego, which always expects rewards for work done.    "Ubhe Sukruta Dushkrute " ( "Be beyond good and evil " ) This commandment is given to us to overcome the Satwic Ego, for one should not hang on to Punya ( divine merit ).    In other words, during the process of Yoga, we will be assailed by all sorts of negative thoughts. Our aim is to identify with the Source of all thought, the Self. We will find, as we progress on the path of yoga, that these negative thoughts leave us slowly and steadily. Conquering our negative aspect is not easy. The negative elements in man are the true villains.    Alone, powerful & cruel are the dark and dreadful forces that profit from the reign of Night and Ignorance and they dont want any change in the body. We have to annihilate them one by one.    In tragic life, God wot   No villains need be, passions spin the plot   We are betrayed by what is false within !   The entire Vedic wisdom is contained in one word " Transcend ". Transcend both pain & sorrow, transcend the triune attributes of Nature. Transcend negativity !.    More information about Transcendental Philosophy & Yoga can be had from http://www.astrologiavedica.com/html/yogamain.htm   Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra )   Tantra focusses on the Chit-Shakti, the Consciousness-Force latent in the Universe. The entire Universe is the play and display of this Cosmic Force and this Force is latent in human beings as the Kundalini. She rises from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra during Meditation. Tantra is a similar discipline like Yoga and is very important from the Divine perspective.    More quality information about Tantra & Yantras can be had from http://www.eastrovedica.com/html/yantra.htm    Books as the source of knowledge   Dante's Divina Commedia or Goethe's Faust were never the product of the Rational Mind. They were the products of the Intuitive Mind. Books can instruct, they can teach & they can elevate man from the mundane to the sublime !    More quality information about spiritual Books & CDs can be had from http://www.astrologiavedica.com/html/Books.htm
