Disputes and Quarrels are an inevitable part of life. Every one of us face such disputes and quarrels which affects our peace of mind also.

Today in this post I am sharing some simple lal kitab remedies that can be done to resolve such conflicts. The best option in such case is to book a specific consultation as I always say that general remedies are no substitute for specific remedies advised through consideration of horoscope thoroughly.
For the benefit of all people associated with us, I am sharing a useful remedy for getting relief from quarrels and disputes in your house.

This remedy can be done by husband or wife or any family member. You have to take 11 basil leaves (Tulsi patte) and one yellow cloth preferably dupatta and one yellow fruit like Mango, yellow pumpkin with dandi etc. These have to be offered to Lord Krishna in any temple for eleven thursdays continuously between sunrise to sunset.

If there are frequent quarrels among husband and wife due to family disputes, generally the lady of the house suffers the most. She has to manage house also and sometimes she is working and has to maintain balance between office and work place also. For this reason, I am suggesting an additional remedy for the females. On a Friday, she should cook two bowls of rice before Sun Rise. Now add two tea spoon pure ghee and sugar in it. When they cool down, offer them to a cow. Please remember that all these activities have to be done before sunrise and without interruption or questioning by anyone. If the cow eats such rice, possibility of removal of your conflicts with your life partner would be reduced. Do for at least 4 Fridays continuously.

HAPPY MAHASHIVRATRI - Spiritual Significance of Mahashivratri and legends associated with it

MahaShivaratri is great festival of convergence of Shiva and Shakti. According to many Vedic scriptures including Shiva Purana, ritual worship of Lord Shiva on Shivratri festival that falls on the 14th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Phalgun pleases Lord Shiva the most. This fact is said to have been declared by Lord Shiva himself, when His consort Parvati asked Him as to which ritual performed by His devotees pleases Him the most.
There are a number of popular legends related to the auspicious festival of Mahashivaratri. These legends of Shivaratri explain the popular custom of staying awake all night on Shivaratri while chanting the name of Lord Shiva. Besides, these also throw light on the greatness of Lord Shiva and his supremacy over all other Hindu Gods and Goddesses. An attempt has been made to provide a brief description of these fascinating legends related to Lord Shiva.
1.      Mahashivratri is celebrated as a day on which Lord Shiva married Maa Parvati
2.      During the Sagar Manthan by the gods and demons, haalaa-hala, a pot of poison also came out of the ocean. This terrified the Gods and demons as the poison was so toxic that it effects would have wiped out the entire creation. On the advice of Lord Vishnu, Gods approached Lord Shiva for help and protection as only he could swallow it without being affected. On the request of gods and out of compassion for living beings, Lord Shiva drank the poison. he poison was so potent that it changed the color of Lord Mahadeva’s neck to blue. For this reason, Lord Shiva is also called Neelakantha (the blue-necked one) where ‘Neela’ means blue and ‘Kantha’ means neck or throat. The impact of poison started to be shown on Lord Shiva and to keep him awake during night, devatas took turn performing various dances and playing music. As the day broke out, Lord Shiva, pleased with their devotion blessed them all. Maha Shivaratri is the celebration of this event by which Shiva saved the world. Since then, on this day and night - devotees fast, keep vigil, sing glories of Lord and meditate.
3.      The legend of Shiva Linga is deeply related to Mahashivaratri. The legend narrates the story of vain search by Brahma and Vishnu to discover the Aadi (beginning) and the Antha (end) of Lord Shiva. The legend thus proves the supremacy of Lord Mahadeva over other Hindu Gods and explains why the lingam is believed to be one of the most potent emblems in Hindu ideals. The story is stated in the three of the puranas - the Kurma Purana, the Vayu Purana and Shiva Purana
4.      According to some legends, Ganga descended on earth from Lord Shiva’s hair on this day. This is the reason that bathing Shiva Linga with ganga water and taking dip in holy river is considered as auspicious on this day.
5.      Lord Shiva Himself has said in Shiva Purana that Shivratri day is His favorite day and that is why Lord Shiva is worshipped by offering bel leaves, water, milk, honey to his form of Shivalinga.
The spiritual significance of Maha Shivratri lies in effort taken by the devotee to know Shiva Tatva. Shiva Tatva is present in each of us. Shivratri is an opportunity to know this Shiva Tatva by praying, meditating, and by keeping vigil at night. This leads us to a stage of awareness where we witness our actions and thought process. In the night of Shivratri, the presence of Shiva Tatva helps us in getting a jump into unknown which opens the mysteries of universe for us.
Shivaratri puja can be performed one time or four times during the night. The whole night duration can be divided into four to get four Prahar to perform Shiva Puja four times.
Ratri First Prahar Puja Time = 18:13 to 21:23
Ratri Second Prahar Puja Time = 21:23 to 24:33/00:33
Ratri Third Prahar Puja Time = 00:33 to 3:44
Ratri Fourth Prahar Puja Time = 3:44 to 6:54
How to worship Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati during this Mahashivratri
On this festival of Mahashivaratri, you can follow Shiva Purana and incorporate the following six items while worshipping Lord Shiva:
1. Bathe the Shiv Linga with water, milk and honey, and Wood apple or bel leaves added to it, representing purification of the soul;
2. The vermilion paste applied on the Shiv Linga after bathing it, represents virtue;
3. Offering of fruits, which is conducive to longevity and gratification of desires;
4. Burning incense, yielding wealth;
5. The lighting of the lamp which is conducive to the attainment of knowledge;
6. And betel leaves marking satisfaction with worldly pleasures.
On this pious occasion of Mahashivaratri, many many greetings to all of you.
May Lord Shiva shower on you His blessings with happiness, prosperity & peace.

HAPPY VASANT PANCHAMI 2017 - How to do Saraswati Puja
Date – 01st February 2017
Vasant Panchami Puja Muhurta = 07:13 to 12:34
Duration = 5 Hours 21 Mins
Vasant means spring, whereas Panchami means the fifth day. And Vasant Panchami falls on the fifth day of spring. This day is celebrated as birthday of Maa Saraswati. This festival highlights the coming of spring. This festival is usually celebrated in Magh, which is between the months of January and February in Gregorian calendar. As per another mythological story, on this day Lord Rama ate half tasted grapes of Shabari and to commemorate this day, the festival of Vasant Panchami is celebrated.
Since ancient times, there is a tradition of worshipping Goddess Saraswati on the day of Basant Panchami. There is a belief that Goddess Saraswati appeared on this day and to celebrate her birthday, her devotees perform her pooja. On this day Goddess Saraswati is worshipped in various names and fames - the Goddess of Learning, the deity of Gayatri, the fountain of fine arts and science, and the symbol of supreme vedantic knowledge. This day is of special significance for Students and Teachers. Goddess Saraswati is also considered the Devi of art and is also worshipped by peoples related to this field. On this day the students also worship the books, copies and pens along with the Goddess Saraswati. Musicians worship their instruments and the Painters worship their paint-brushes and colors.
Many astrologers consider Vasant Panchami as Abujha day which is auspicious to start all good work. According to this belief whole Vasant Panchami day is auspicious to perform Saraswati Puja but still I have given Puja Muhurat from 09:16 a.m. to 12.35 p.m.
Legend associated with birth of Goddess Saraswati
After building the universe, Lord Brahma saw that his creation is quiet like a dead body. It has neither a sound nor any music. Lord Brahma was not happy with the sadistic view of his universe. Then Lord Brahma went to Vishnu and told him about his creation. Lord Vishnu told Brahma that Goddess Saraswati can help him solve his problem. He advised him to evoke Goddess Saraswati and the sound of her Veena will give voice to his creation.
On suggestion of Lord Vishnu, Brahma ji evoked Goddess Saraswati. When she appeared, Brahma requested her to give sound to his creation from her Veena. The moment Saraswati touched the wires of Veena, 'sa' alphabet came out from it. This alphabet is the first sound of the seven sounds of music.
The flow of this music gave voice to the voice less universe. Winds, rivers, sea, birds, animals and all other things got voice. This made Brahma ji happy and He gave the name Vageshwari to Goddess Saraswati. Godddess Saraswati holds a Veena in her hand and thus she is also called Veenapaani.
Method of worshipping Maa Saraswati
While performing Saraswati Pooja, the idol or photo of Goddess Saraswati is kept in front. After this, pinnacle or kalash is enshrined and Lord Ganesha and the nine planets are worshipped. After this Mata Saraswati is worshipped. While worshipping Mother Saraswati, Aachman is performed and she is bathed. After this, flowers, garlands, Vermilions and other make up things are offered. On this day, Gulaal is also offered on the feets of Mother Saraswati. Devi Saraswati wears white clothes so she should be coated with that. On occassion of Saraswati Poojan, yellow flowers are offered and seasonal fruits and boondiyas are offered as Prasad. On this occasion, Malpua and Kheer are also offered to the Goddess.
Mantra for worshipping Maa Saraswati
The following mantra should be recited or alternatively it can be listened.
Maa Saraswati Mantra
Ya Kundendu Tusharhar Dhavalaa, Ya Shubhra Vastravritaa;
Ya Veenavardandmanditkara, Ya shwet Padmasana.
Ya Brahmascheut Shankar Prabhritirbhirdewah Sadabanditah;
Sa Maam Patu Saraswati Devi, Ya Nishesh Jadyapahaa.
(या कुन्देन्दु तुषारहार धवला, या शुभ्र वस्त्रावृता !
या वीणावरदंडमंडितकरा, या श्वेत पद्मासना !!
या ब्रह्मास्च्युत शंकर प्रभृतिर्भिरदेवाः सदाबंदिताः
सा मां पातु सरस्वती देवी, या निशेष जाड़यापहा !!)
May the revered occasion of Basant Panchami,
Bring the wealth of knowledge to you,
May you be blessed by Goddess Saraswati and all your wishes come true.
Happy Basant Panchami.
Jai Maa Saraswati

Why we offer Water to peepal tree

I would start this post with an excerpt from Bhagavad Gita where Lord Krishna says to Arjuna, "Among trees, I am the Ashvattha." The inference of this quote by Lord Krishna is that in trees, He is the most sacred tree (Ashvattha or Peepal tree). Ashvattha is a Sanskrit word for Peepal tree which is known as Ficus Religious in English. Krishna is believed to have died under this tree, after which the present Kali Yuga is said to have begun. It is usually huge in size. It comprises of a light grey bark that is smooth and peels in patches. Its heart-shaped leaves have long, tapering tips that make it stands out from the rest of the leaves of the other trees and the fruit is purple when ripe. In the Hindu religion, Peepal tree is highly honored and has given a lot of reverence. It is the first-known depicted tree in India, a seal discovered at Mohenjodaro, one of the cities of the Indus Valley Civilization shows Peepal tree being worshipped. During the Vedic period, its wood was used to make fire by friction.

Inspite of presence of a huge literature on benefits of peepal tree, there are misconceptions among many people relating to this tree. Many people wonder why we worship peepal tree when actually we do not use its fruits or leaves or even wood in today’s context. There are many people who although continue to offer water on peepal tree and worshipping it do not have an idea about the significance of these rituals. They continue carrying out these rituals without understanding the astrological, mythological, spiritual and scientific relevance of doing it. In this post, I have made an effort to briefly give you an idea about these significances. In addition people have many myths about it and do not know the right method of worshipping peepal tree. I have suggested the right method of worshipping peepal tree which will give you immense benefits.

Astrological significance of Peepal tree

Peepal tree is said to be related to the planet Jupiter which is also known as Brihaspati or Guru in Astrology. In Indian theology, Jupiter is considered the preceptor of the gods. In astrology, Jupiter is considered a highly benevolent planet that confers propitious results to the different zodiac signs while transiting through the different houses of the horoscope. If Jupiter is weak in your horoscope or you are getting some malefic results of planet Jupiter, you can worship Peepal tree.

In Astrology, we also recommend worshipping Peepal tree for removing pitra dosha in the horoscope. Peepal is symbolic of ancestors worship during October and November in pitra paksha when earthen pitcher is hung to its branches and filled with water, milk, til and honey. It is believed that ancestors come down from the tree and accept the offerings.

According to the Atharva Veda, Peepal tree is considered as benefactor of mankind by blessing barren women with children. Thus the tree is considered potent with fertility.

The notorious demons called Ashvatta and Peepal were playing mischievous games with people. One of them took the form of the peepal tree to get people near and kill them. Both these demons were annihilated by Saturn or Shani which makes worshipping Peepal tree on Saturday highly auspicious. As Lord Krishna says “He is Ashvattha in trees” and is the deity of Saturn, worshipping Peepal tree helps in overcoming problems relating to planet Saturn especially in Sade saati.

Mythological significance of Peepal tree

Peepal tree finds its mention in the Rig-Veda. According to Vedic sources its wood was used as fire vessels and as drill for producing sacred fire. As mentioned in ancient Ayurveda, Peepal is sprinkled with water accompanied by prayers for the removal of certain ills, such as throbbing of the eyes and arms, dreadful dreams, etc.

The most reverent feature of Peepal tree according to Hindu mythology is that this tree is the abode of Trinity consisting of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Peepal tree is considered to embody the trinity in its roots (Brahma), in its stem (Vishnu) and in its leaves (Shiva). This tree is also called Vruksharaja or the king of trees.

To cut down a peepal is considered a sin equivalent to killing a Brahmin, one of the five deadly sins or Panchapataka. According to the Skanda Purana, a person goes to hell for doing so. Maa Lakshmi visits Peepal tree every Saturday and therefore peepal tree is being worshipped especially on Saturdays to get blessings of Maa Lakshmi.

Spiritual significance of Peepal tree

The peepal is also sacred to Buddhists, because the Buddha is believed to have attained enlightenment under it. Hence it is also called the Bodhi tree or tree of enlightenment. Hindu monks still mediate below this sacred tree. Pradakshina (circumambulation) is practiced by Hindus as a mark of worship, walking around the tree in clockwise direction.

Scientific significance of Peepal tree

Apart from religious beliefs associated with peepal tree, there are some scientific facts as well. Many people have a myth that peepal tree emit oxygen 24 hours a day but this is not true. Peepal tree however is considered to be the largest oxygen provider and it has the capability to provide oxygen for maximum hours among all trees. Researchers have also proved that the interacting flow of wind as well as the sound, with the leaves of peepal tree kills the infectious bacteria slowly.

It is used extensively in Ayurveda for several other purposes. One very useful thing about its leaves is that, when heated in ghee, it can be used as a healer to cure the wounds. Decoction of its bark with honey is good for curing skin diseases. From the dried fruit of this tree a powder is prepared and dissolved in water and taken twice a week to cure the deadly disease asthma.

Right Method of worshipping Peepal tree
  1. The simplest method is to offer water to its roots regularly in the morning.
  2. It is never advisable to give water during afternoon or evening time and not on Sunday.
  3. Another way is to lit a Mustard oil lamp on Saturday evening and Desi Ghee lamp on other days in the evening time.
  4. A common mistake which every person commits while offering water to peepal tree is using copper vessel. Copper element is related to planet Sun which is inimical to Saturn. Therefore you are advised to use a steel vessel to offer water to peepal tree.
Benefits of offering water to peepal tree
  1. Bring stability in thoughts and actions
  2. Initiate logical thinking,
  3. You will get favor of luck, fortune and intelligence.
  4. Removes obstacles in marriage
  5. Children as it is the significator for children
  6. Great for Religious and charitable bent in life
  7. Uninterrupted flow of income & even multiple sources of income.
  8. Good health
