Diwali Puja Muhurat and Lal Kitab Astrological Remedies to be done on Diwali

The word "Diwali" is a contraction of "Deepavali", originating from the Sanskrit word Dipavali (दीपावली) which can be translated to "Row of Lights". Hence the Diwali Festival is also called the "Festival of Lights". Diwali is the name for the festival in North-India. In South-India the festival is called "Deepavali".
This year Diwali will be celebrated on Thursday, 23th of October 2014.
Legends behind celebration of Diwali
Diwali celebrates to victory of the Good over the Evil and Light over Darkness. Is has a major religious significance for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains alike - not only in India, but also for Indians living abroad. The day of Diwali falls on Kartik Amavasya and many businesses in India start a new accounting year on this day. Diwali is actually celebrated in honor of Lord Rama and His wife Sita returning to their kingdom of Ayodhya, after defeating demon King Ravana.
Diwali marks the end of the harvest season in most of India. Farmers give thanks for the bounty of the year gone by, and pray for a good harvest for the year to come. Traditionally this marked the closing of accounts for businesses dependent on the agrarian cycle, and is the last major celebration before winter. Maa Lakshmi symbolizes wealth and prosperity, and her blessings are invoked for a good year ahead. There are two legends that associate the worship of Lakshmi on this day. According to the first legend, on this day, Lakshmi emerged from Kshira Sagar, the Ocean of Milk, during the great churning of the oceans, Samudra manthan. The second legend (more popular in western India) relates to the Vamana avatar of the Lord Vishnu, the incarnation he assumed to kill the demon king Bali. On this day, Vishnu came back to his abode the Vaikuntha; so those who worship Lakshmi receive the benefit of her benevolent mood, and are blessed with mental, physical and material well-being. Lord Ganesha is also worshipped along with Maa Lakshmi because he is treated as remover of all obstacles and worshipped before all the Gods.
Diwali Puja Muhurat
Lakshmi Puja should be done during Pradosh Kaal which starts after sunset. You can do puja between 17:39 (5:39 pm) to 20:14 (8:14) but the most auspicious time for Diwali Poojan is given below:
Maa Lakshmi Puja Muhurta = 18:56 (6:56 pm) to 20:14 (8:14 pm)- on 23rd October 2014
It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi visits homes during Diwali time so everyone likes to clean and decorate their homes in the best way possible. From whitewashing to buying new furnishings, people love to work on their homes during Diwali. You can use your creativity and decorate your home with flowers and rangoli patterns this Diwali and you will feel the presence of nature in your home. The sweet fragrance of flowers enhances the aesthetic appeal on the rangoli patterns and the combination looks magnificent on the front door of a home. Besides flowers and rangoli patterns, place electric lights in appropriate places in your home as well. Be careful with the placement of candles and diyas and ensure that they are kept away from curtains and other flammable things.
On Diwali evening, it is customary to start the celebrations with a Lakshmi Puja. Decorate the puja thali and clean the temple beforehand. Start with Ganesh Puja and move on to Lakshmi Puja. Distribute the puja prasad to all family members after the puja is complete. 
Important points to be kept in mind for Diwali Puja & Lal Kitab Tips/Remedies for Diwali
1.      On the night of Diwali, listen or read Vishnu Sahasra Naam and Shree Sukta
2.      Purchase a new broom on Diwali and use it to clean the place where pooja has to be done. You can use it regularly from next day onwards. It will help in improving prosperity.
3.      Try to offer homemade Rice Kheer to Maa Lakshmi instead of offering sweets available in market.
4.      If it is possible, have 11 Abhimantri “Gomti Chakra” and keep them in a red cloth bag. Treat these Gomati Chakra as Maa Lakshmi and worship them in your pooja. After doing pooja, you can keep these Gomati Chakras in your locker or almirah or the place where you keep your money. This will help you in gaining wealth and prosperity. People whose business is not growing must do this to gain benefit.
5.      Most Important for all of you is to install a Crystal or Sphatik Shree Yantra on Diwali at your house. If you have this yantra, then after undertaking panchabhishek (washing with milk, ghee, honey, curd and gangajal) worship it. Maa Lakshmi resides in Shree Yantra and it will definitely bestow peace, happiness and blessings of Maa Lakshmi on you.
6.      There are many people who are facing unemployment or their mind is always wandering here and there. They should wear Shree Yantra Abhimantrit Locket which will help them in gaining wealth and good intelligence. People who want to have promotion can also wear this locket or alternatively install Abhimantrit Shree Yantra at their house.
7.      If possible while doing Diwali Pooja wear Sphatik Bead mala. It will increase the effect of Diwali Pooja many times. Alternatively wear Lakshmi Narain Pendant which is a combination of Seven Mukhi and Ten Mukhi Rudraksha denoting Maa Lakshmi and Vishnu Ji respectively.
8.      On all days starting from Dhan Teras till Bhaiya Dhuj, try to light a diya near the Tulsi plant. Pushkar Puran states, “The person who lights the lamp of sesame (til) oil in the name of Lord Shri Hari in the month of Kartik (during Sandhya) gets unlimited prosperity, beauty, blessedness and wealth”. So if possible try to lit lamp of sesame (til) oil in evening during the whole month of Kartik

Simple Remedies that can be done on Dhan Teras for prosperity and wealth

DHAN TERAS DATE IN 2014 – Tuesday, 21st October 2014


About the Festival – Dhan Triyodashi, Yamdeep Daan, Kuber Puja, Dhanwantri Puja

Dhanteras the festival of wealth and prosperity is celebrated two days before Diwali festival in India. Dhanteras is also known as Dhantrayodashi, and takes place two days before Diwali, in honour of Dhanavantri, the physician of the gods and an incarnation of Vishnu. Dhanteras marks the beginning of Diwali festival. Dhan means “wealth” and Teras denotes “trayodashi”. The festival is observed on the 13th lunar day of dark fortnight (Krishna Paksha) in the month of Kartik.

On this day, the main doors of houses and offices are decorated with flowers lights and rangolis. An extensive pooja is organized in all households where people worship Goddess Laxmi with their purchase of the day (utensil/Jewellery).

Legends Associated with Dhan Teras

Yamadeep Daan

There are two legends associated with this festival. The first is that there was a 16 year old son of King Hima whose horoscope predicted his early death by a snake-bite on the fourth day of his wedding. On that particular fourth day of his marriage, his young wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid all the ornaments and lots of gold and silver coins in a big heap at the entrance of her husband’s boudoir and lighted innumerable lamps all over the place. And she went on telling stories and singing songs. When Yam, the god of death arrived there in the guise of a serpent his eyes got blinded by that dazzle of those brilliant lights and he could not enter the prince’s chamber. So he climbed on top of the heap of the ornaments and coins and sat there whole night listening to the melodious songs. In the morning he quietly went away. Thus the young wife saved her husband from the clutches of death. Since then this day of Dhanteras came to be known as the day of "YAMADEEPDAAN" and lamps are kept burning throughout the night in reverential adoration to Yam, the god of death.

Legend of Samudramanthan or Sea Churning

Another legend of Samudramanthan shows that at the time of sea churning or samudramanthan, Lord Dhanwantri appeared in sea with an urn, hence, there is a tradition of buying utensils of this day. It is believed buying utensils or silver increases their count by 13 times. Also, buying seeds of dried coriander and keeping them in house increases wealth. On the day of Diwali, these seeds are sown in garden or farms. These seeds are the symbol of growth and wealth increment in a person’s life.

What to purchase on Dhanteras/Simple remedies that can be done on Dhan Teras

In the past few years, the tradition of purchasing utensils and jewellery has become popular on this day. The real significance of Dhan Teras lies in worshipping Lord Dhanvantri so that good health is bestowed on the worshipper and ultimately “Health is Wealth.” The best way to celebrate Dhan Teras apart from worshipping Maa Lakshmi, Kuber Ji, Lord Yama and Lord Dhanvantri is to give any gift to your family doctor or physician. In addition you can purchase small utensil/s of silver/steel/copper as per your need and budget. Please remember that do not purchase a utensil with holes like tea filter.   You can purchase a copper/silver bowl and after puja you can use it for drinking water. If it is a copper utensil you can dip five mukhi rudraksha in it in night and early morning have this water and it will solve your diabetes and blood pressure problem. Alternatively you can bring home the silver idols of Lakshmi and Ganesha which increases wealth, success and growth at house, offices and business organisation.

You can also install 11 Abhimantrit Gomati Chakras on this day and keep them in your locker. You can visit Yantra Link  in our website   to know about Gomati Chakras

Dhanteras Pujan

The worship  on Dhanteras should be done in Subh Muhurat. First of all 13 lamps should be lighted and Lord Kuber in the Locker should be worshipped. Lord Kuber is worshipped and offered flowers and it is said that “I worship you Lord Kuber who sits on the best plane similar to Garudamani, holding Gadha in both the hands and wearing crown on head, dear friend of lord Shiva”. After this worship with incense sticks, lamps, Navedha (sweets) and chant the following mantra

'यक्षाय कुबेराय वैश्रवणाय धन-धान्य अधिपतये
धन-धान्य समृद्धि मे देहि दापय स्वाहा '

Auspicious Muhurat for Puja in the Evening

The time of Pradosh Kal,fixed Lagna from 17:41 to 20:15 (05:41 p.m. to 08:15 p.m.) will be the most auspicious for the Pujan of Dhanteras.You can also do worship in Vrishabh call which is from 19:04 to 20:59 (7:04 pm to 8:59 pm)

Method of Deep Daan

In the evening have 13 mitti ke Deepak (mud lamp) and fill it with Til oil. Have new cotton in it and lit it. Lit an incense stick also and recite following mantra looking at South Direction:         
‘मृत्युना दण्डपाशाभ्यां कालेन श्यामया सह ।

त्रयोदश्यां दीपदानात्‌ सूर्यजः प्रीयतां मम ॥’

Now do deep daan and release diyas into water or leave them at pipal tree.

You must install Abhimantrit Narmadeshwar Shiv linga in your house in this Shravan (Sawan) Month

In Hindu calendar Shravan month is dedicated to Lord Shiva. This whole month is considered auspicious to seek blessings of Lord Shiva. Devotees keep various fasts during Shravan month to please Lord Shiva. I would suggest everyone of you to install Abhimantrit (Energized) Narmadeshwar Shiv Linga in your house in this Shravan month.Narmadeshwar Shivlinga/Bana Linga are obtained from the river Narmada in Madhya Pradesh.  

Narmadeshwar Shivlinga is considered very auspicious as they are made naturally in the river bed. It is believed that where there is Narmadeshwar Shivling Lord Shiva Himself resides there. One can get rid of all ailments by performing daily pooja of Narmadeshwar Shivlings to achieve success in life. It is important to have energized Narmadeshwar Shiv Linga in your house or place of business. Some people try to save money and install it without energization which do not result in expected gains.

Narmadeshwar Shivlinga is a manifestation of Lord Shiva and it helps the deity in connecting with the supreme Lord Shiva. 

It is not possible to describe the benefits a person could get through worshipping Lord Shiva through Narmadeshwar Shivlinga in this small post. Some of the benefits are discussed here for the benefit of all people associated with us.
  1. Numerous Scriptures acknowledge the superior merits of the Bana Lingams and extol the unsurpassed virtues of them, in bestowing many great benefits. The “Yajnavalkya Samhita” states that the benefits that can be obtained by worshipping a crore of other Shivalingas are obtained by worshipping just one Bana Linga. It is said that merely thinking about their Bana Linga early in the morning itself is likely to bestow success in all their enterprises of the day.
  2. It is also said that the Narmadeshwar Shivlinga secure worldly welfare as well as emancipation from worldly involvement. It is the considered view of many that the Narmada Shiva/Bana Lingams wash off sins and curses.
  3. The Narmadeshwar Shiva Linga works with the breath and the fluids of the body creating a harmony in the body’s flow. The Narmada Bana Linga helps one to unite the lower self (conscious) with the higher self (unconscious) so that we may know our own divinity as we seek to know God. It brings believers into the mystical union with God.
  4. It heals and helps opening the chakras to resolve issues. It helps in activating the kundalini energy and the seven chakras. It awakens the energy centers and brings feelings of peace and wellbeing. It enhances personal or group meditations for clearer flow of energies.
  5. It balances and brings harmony to its surrounding environment, after cleansing the prevailing negative energies.
  6. Narmadeshwar Shivlinga has mysterious power in it that induces concentration of the mind and help in focussing one's attention. That is why the ancient sages and seers of India suggested for worship of Shiv linga so that a devotee can connect with Lord Shiva.
  7. Narmadeshwar Shivlinga also helps in maintaining the cordial relations between husband and wife. Couples who keep Narmadeshwar Shivling in their home are blessed with Lord Shiva’s blessings. I think and strongly believe that Narmadeshwar Shivling is a must in every home.
  8. Whatever is offered to Narmadeshwar Shivlinga with devotion can be taken as prasad by the devotee.
  9. Narmadeshwar shivlinga also helps in getting the blessings of Lord Saturn and the devotee gets peace and prosperity.
  10. Regular Abhishek of Narmadeshwar Shiv Linga bestows mental peace, give wealth, opportunities of success, advancement in profession and finding out appropriate match for marriage. 

So what you are waiting for. Shravan month is already here and many people have seen a difference in their lives by installing Abhimantrit Narmadeshwar Shiv Linga in their house and place of business.

                                                       HAPPY HOLI 2014

Date of Holi in 2014 – 17th March 2014

Introduction of Festival
Holi is celebrated from the full moon day (purnima) of the Hindu lunar month of Phalgun until the fifth day (panchami) known as Rang Panchami. Depending on regional variations it is celebrated from two to five days.
It has various names such as Hori, Dolayatra in North India, Shimga, Holi and Hutashani mahotsav, Holikadahan (burning of Holika) in Goa, Konkan and Maharashora, and Kamadahan (burning of desires) in South India. It is also called as Vasantotsav or Vasantagamanotsav that is the festival celebrated to welcome the spring (Vasant) season.
Mythological Significance
Holi gets us close to our religion and our mythology as it is essentially the celebration of various legends associated with the festival. The main legend associated with holi is the legend of Prahlad and Hiranyakshyap. The legend says there once lived a devil and powerful king, Hiranyakshyap who considered himself a god and wanted everybody to worship him. To his great ire, his son, Prahlad began to worship, Lord Vishnu. To get rid of his son, Hiranyakshyap asked his sister, Holika to enter a blazing fire with Prahlad in her lap, as she had a boon to enter fire unscathed. Legend has it that Prahlad was saved for his extreme devotion for the lord while Holika paid a price for her sinister desire. The tradition of burning Holika or the 'Holika dahan' comes mainly from this legend.

 The festival of Holi is also associated with the enduring love between Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Vishnu) and Radha, and Krishna in general. According to legend, the young Krishna complained to his mother Yashoda about why Radha was so fair and he so dark. Yashoda advised him to apply colour on Radha's face and see how her complexion would change. Because of this associated with Krishna, Holi is extended over a longer period in Vrindavan and Mathura, two cities with which Krishna is closely affiliated.  

Astrological Remedies which can be done on Holi

Through various mails and queries many people have asked to share some of the simple astrological remedies which can be done on Holi to get health, wealth, happiness and success in job and profession. I am sharing some of the simple astrological remedies which can be done today.
1.      First of all you can visit a temple in morning and offer abhishek of water on Shiv Linga along with applying little rose color (gulal) or sandalwood paste on Lord Shiva. This will be start of your holi with blessings of Lord Shiva. People who have Narmadeshwar Shiv Linga in their house can offer abhishek to Lord Shiva at their home itself. You can contact our centre for getting energized Narmadeshwar Shiv Linga.
2.      Persons who are in financial trouble or wants to improve their finances on this day should go to a peepal tree (bo tree) at 10’o clock in morning. According to various Shastras, Maa Lakshmi visit peepal tree on every Purnima at around 10’o clock. On this day, you should offer water to peepal tree and if possible lit a sarson (mustard oil) deepak on it and pray to Maa Lakshmi to improve your financial position.
3.      This day is very useful for “Aura Cleaning.” People who think that they are affected by the evil eyes of others, then on this day they should ensure that at any time of the day they got themselves energized through an energy healer (preferably Reiki expert) or they should take normal salt and move it clockwise 7 times from head to toe of all the persons in the family one by one. After this throw this salt in sink or wash basin. It will remove negative energy from your aura.
