Pitta Dosh in Ayurvedic Astrology

Posted on Updated on

 

Our body comprises of three elements Vata (air), Pitta (bile) and Kapha. pittaThe element of heat which circulates in our body is termed as Pitta. This Pitta element is responsible for the movement of nutrition and the bodily functions related to balance of body temperature. An equitable balance among three doshas, provide vitality and health to human beings.

But when any one of them is disturbed, it upsets the equilibrium and we stand suffering from variety of diseases. According to Vedic treaties in Vedic astrology, the movement in zodiac and transit effect of planetary influence is largely responsible for such health issues.

Pitta plays a vital role in the movement of nutrition on the body. Pitta forms the major element of importance in the digestive system of human body. As per ayurvedic texts, the number of diseases due to Pitta disturbance are 20 in number since they involve malfunctioning of the digestive aspect of the system.

The Pitta element of the body is divided into five types, each of which is located in different parts of the body. The five types of Pitta are

S.No. Subtypes of Pitta Locations Actions
1. Pachaka Lower part of stomach and small intestine Digestion
2. Ranjaka Liver, spleen, stomach Formation of blood
3. Sadhaka Heart / Brain Effect on mental function – fear/bravery, calmness / anger confusion / clarity
4. Alochaka Eye Vision
5. Bhrajaka Skin Temperature regulation, sweating, color and complexion

 

Pitta element is located in the Liver, which secretes the digestive juices moving into stomach.

Pitta plays important role in regulating the digestive processes in the body and ensure that nutrition reaches to every part of our body.

As per Vedic astrology, there are some planets and their associated zodiac signs which are associated with the Pitta element. The planets and the zodiac signs have fire element as their essential principle and hence, they become pitta planets. They are as follows:

Zodiac signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Scorpio

Planets: Mars, the Sun, Jupiter (secondary), Ketu.

These planets have their central element of support as fire and hence, when they become the Lagna planet or have an effect on the central houses of the Kundali chart, the influence of these planets causes disturbance or regulation of Pitta in the body of the individual. Depending upon their own positions in the Kundali, these planets have their multiple effects on the Pitta element and hence, the effect can be seen in microscopic form.

There are six tastes as per ayurvedic texts, viz. Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Hot and Astringent.

Improve love, luck and destiny – Why should you worship during Navratri?

Posted on Updated on

Every festival has its relevance and it’s better to know and believe rather than just follow it. Similarly the nine nights of Navratri has a hidden story behind them which varies according to the belief in varied parts of India.

North India:

The North Indians hold the belief that the violent devil Mahishasura was the faithful worshipper of Lord Shiva. He adored him for years and finally achieved the fruit of eternity. On obtaining immense power, his evil energies became prominent and his ego made him feel that he can conquer all the three worlds. The devil carried on with his cruelty and evil deeds for long, which finally disturbed the Gods and other deities, as he challenged them too. Helpless innocent people along with all the other Gods pleaded the supreme power of Lord Brahma, Lords Vishnu and Lord Shiva to take some urgent action. The divine power gathered all their Shaktis together which lead to the birth of beautiful female warrior Goddess Durga. Mahishasura lost control over his emotions and felt in love with the beauty of Goddess Durga. He proposed her for marriage and Ma Durga accepted his proposal on a condition. She kept a clause that she will marry him only if he wins her in a battle. As lost in love and his pride, he accepted the condition and was sure about his victory. The fierce battle between them continued for about nine nights and finally on the ninth night, Goddess Durga beheaded demon Mahishasura. The beheading of Mahishasura symbolise the cutting down of our evil devilish qualities which resides within us. It inspires us to get rid of these traits and inculcate positive qualities otherwise our condition will be similar to Mahishasura. The tenth day is celebrated to glorify the power of goodness and spread the message around. These nine nights of struggle is the period of navratri which is considered auspicious by Hindus.shubhpuja.com

East India:

This belief holds the story about the beautiful and dedicated daughter of King of Himalayas, Daksha. Uma was madly engrossed in worshipping Lord Shiva and wanted him to accept her as his consort. She performed severe penance for several years and finally pleased by her devotion, Lord Shiva married her. Uma’s father was against their marriage and he never wanted his daughter to reside in Mount Kailash with Shiv ji. One day Daksha organized a huge yagna and invited everybody except Lord Shiva. This news irritated Uma and she went to her father, who was answerable for this insult. When she reached there, she heard her father insulting lord Shiva. This was against her self-respect and she jumped into the fire of yagna and united with eternity. She was named as Sati from then on. Later Sati took rebirth as Goddess Parvati and married Lord Shiva again. So every year Uma along with Ganesh, kartikeya, Saraswati and Lakshmi and her two friends named Jaya and Bijaya; comes to visit her parent’s home when Durga Puja is celebrated.

Another major belief is from the Hindu epic, Ramayana which says that Lord Rama worshipped the nine forms of Goddess Durga for nine days to achieve immense positive strength for ending the cruelty of Ravana. So the tenth day marks the end of evil Ravana which is still celebrated by burning huge effigies of Ravana on Dusshera.

Rediscover yourself this Navratri!  

Posted on Updated on

navratri-website

 

Every year the beginning of summer and the beginning of winter are two very important junctures of climatic change and solar influence. These two junctions have been chosen as the sacred opportunities to worship the divine powers because of the very fact that the dynamism always calls for simultaneous balance. When a season and the position of the sun changes, the human body and mind also experience the same and the energy has to be channelized thus these pujas!

Hinduism is the only religion in the world which has emphasized to such an extent the motherhood of God. 
Navratras are celebrated to worship different avatars and forms of goddess Durga (Shailaputri, Brahmachari, Chandragha, Kushmana, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri). To please goddess Durga, a 9 day fast period is observed. During Navratri pujan, the Durga Sapsati puja and havan with proper procedures and rituals is conducted where each family member gives aahuti and takes blessings from Durga mata. The Durga puja vidhi and processes need to be properly understood and applied. Therefore, a knowledgeable priest well versed in vedic shastras and process is advised.
 The word Navaratri means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit; nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are worshiped.

The Vedic sciences state that- matter reverts to its original form to recreate itself again and again. The creation is cyclical, not linear; everything is recycled by nature. Rejuvenation is a continuous process. The human mind, however, lags behind.

Undoubtedly Navratri is celebrated to rejoice of the victory of good over evil, the actual fight, however, is not between good and evil. From the Vedantic point of view, the victory is of the absolute reality over the apparent duality.

Navratri is a festival for one to take the mind back to its Source.

It basically is a journey of nine days to the very source of our being. With fasting and constant chanting and prayers one engages in a profound cleansing of the body as well as that of the soul.

The Deities representing Budhi (Intellect), Bhranti (Confusion), Lakshmi (Abundance), Shudha (Hunger), Trishna (Thirst) are worshipped profoundly to achieve utmost peace, serenity and over-come all negativities created by inertia, pride, shame, unreasonable logics, lack of clarity in life and so on. The nine days of Navratri are also an opportunity to rejoice in the three primordial qualities that make up the universe. Though our life is governed by the three gunas, we seldom recognize and reflect on them. The first three days of Navratri are attributed to tamo guna, the next three days to rajo guna and the last three days to sattva guna.

The program of the 9 days is as follows:

–       Day 1 to Day 3:

On the first day of the Navaratras, a small bed of mud is prepared in the puja room and barley seeds are sown on it. These initial days are dedicated to Durga Maa, the Goddess of power and energy.

 

–       Day 4 to Day 6:

 During these days, Lakshmi Maa, the Goddess of peace and prosperity is worshipped. 

 

–       Day 7 & Day 8:

These final days belong to Saraswati Maa who is worshipped to acquire the spiritual knowledge. This in turn will free us from all earthly bondage. But on the 8th day of this colorful festival, yagna (holy fire) is performed.  

 

–       Mahanavami or Ram Navami this 8th of April is the birthday of Lord Rama!

 

After 8 or 9 days of fasting, Navratra pujan is concluded by Ram Navami puja where we perform kanya puja. Nine young girls representing the nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshiped and they are offered kala chana, halwa and puri with dakshina and red chunari as kanjaks.

 

Your very own http://www.shubhpuja.com gives you this divine opportunity to replenish all your gunas and cleanse your body and soul.

Astrology & Yagna relationship

Posted on Updated on

astrolgy yagna-01

The most powerful and potent astrological remedies, be it to fulfill the cherished goals in one’s life or to avoid dangerous and fatal disasters are ‘Astrological Yagnas’, undoubtedly.

They are a lot like science actually; a personalized Yagna is just like a specific medicine prescribed by a physician for a particular illness. In case of an intense problem, when all the means to make it right has failed then a personalized yagna is the answer; effective as it emphasizes on one particular problem.

Vedic Astrology professes two types of Yagnas / rituals or tasks – the regular ones and the specific ones. The regular Yagnas / rituals are those which a person accomplishes on a daily basis. While the specific ones are often done to fulfil a particular wish. Wishes may be as diverse as of a child, wealth a long term romantic affair / stability in a love relationship, success on the business front or getting rid of certain diseases. In this way, the basis for performance of occasional duties may be anything related to a person or collective welfare. In such a situation, a person seeks the help of astrology when the desires are not completely fulfilled.

A personalized yagna, however, is proven to be of immense help not only to restore your faith and belief but also towards your goal of wish fulfilment.

We have, after some intense research included the five important aspects of life in these Yagnas: health, wealth, marriage, removal of obstacles and children.

Astrology and Yagna, when done in correlation, promise a better and peaceful life to one. Be it any sort of relationship, disease or any other concern, the science behind a Yagna is so powerful that nothing can stand up to it. An analysis for the same is done when you contact our experts and then the ‘personalized’ yagna is brain-stormed upon and performed.
