Navatara Chakra

Navatara taught in Edison NJ September 20, 2003

The Sun is the lord of the signs (the body), and the Moon is the lord of the naksatra (the mind). The Atma is entangled to the mind, wherever the body goes the atma must go. Therefore the naksatras are very important. The Navatara is the 27 naksatras divided into 3 groups of nine. This chakra is used for fine-tuning the vimshottari dasa results as well as for making Muhurta specific to an individual chart.

Ghatak Nakshatras

Lecture given In Edison New Jersey Sept 20, 2003

In the Païcäìga, the five branches are each ruled by one of the five tattvas. The vära is ruled by agni, tithi by jala, yoga by äkäça, karaëa by påthvi, and the näkñatra by väyu. As väyu is the prana, the pranas of the body come from the Moon näkñatra, (this is why the pranapad lagna needs to be trines to the Moon in the Navamsa for a manusha Jataka). The näkñatra shows the strength of our pranas and any afflictions to them. Each räçi has a ghätaka näkñatra, which causes problems to the native.

Ghätaka: one who hurts, afflicts pain, maims, destroys, kills

The ghätaka näkñatra is an inauspicious time, whether the Moon is transiting that star, or the Muhurta with that star in Lagna, etc, it will indicate negative results that are dangerous to the individual. Mars is the karaka for ghätaka, as it injures, hurts, kills. The näkñatra are connected to väyu, Saturn, pranas, longevity, and life. So the ghätaka näkñatra is very dangerous to life.

  The ghätaka näkñatra is an inauspicious time, whether the Moon is transiting that star, or the Muhurta with that star in Lagna, etc, it will indicate negative results that are dangerous to the individual. Mars is the karaka for ghätaka, as it injures, hurts, kills. The näkñatra are connected to väyu, Saturn, pranas, longevity, and life. So the ghätaka näkñatra is very dangerous to life.

The ghätaka näkñatra is a serious matter because it can cause death. The day the Moon transits the ghätaka from one’s own Moon, the person should not start any important things. If a person gets married at this time they may die from the marriage. If one is starting a business on the ghätaka, then the business will fail, it’s pranas will suffer.
