How the Sword Leads to Non Violence

Muslims one way or the other, got their religion into Bengal long ago. It is a subject of study actually, "How DID Bengal Become So Muslim"… that’s  a big study, because nobody can make sense of it, figure it out, historically, but it happened. Somehow. 

And there were Hindus already there, Vegetarians, not meat eaters like Muslims, and very learned Hindus too, as it just so happened, there were the least ever conquered Hindu Kingdoms there, in that area, Bengal, Orissa.

Somehow the two met up there, and Islam spread like wildfire somehow through time until now there is Bangladesh, and most of Eastern Bengal is like 50% Muslim say.  I’ve been there, on four separate journeys, to Navadwip, and all it’s surrounding cities, as well as the rest of India and Sri Lanka, parts of Bangladesh. 

In the early 1500’s, a Hindu born famous and genetically tall and light colored genius spread a new form of Hinduism that merged parts of Islam’s ideas with Hinduism’s ideas and created "The Caitanya Religion", that was his name, Caitanya, or, "Gaudiya Vaisnavism" which translates to "Bengali Style of Mono Theism".

This led to a movement of this religion in the 1800’s and 1900’s there called the Gaudiya Math, which just means "The Temple of Bengal", and refers to being ultra orthodox in the Caitanya or Bengali Version of Hindu Monotheism. 

A passionate Hindu Nationalist named Abhay Caran Deh found the Guru of this movement somehow and sat in on a lecture and converted to this religion, which was native to his childhood as he came from Calcutta, which by then, the religion had reached there, and had many members, his family, one of them. He was a Bengali Vaisnava follower of Gandhi’s Nationlist Movement passionately. 

But he converted his passionate self to this new temple movement instead, now making Krishna, serving Krishna, God, his purpose in life, fulfilling his Teacher’s (Guru’s) orders, the pivotal aim of his whole self.  There was however, in the mix of that Bengali Temple’s ideas, a tinge of Vengeance, for Britain having conquered them, and for Muslim’s having conquered them previously, now gone, long gone, both, but.. Indians, feel a need to prove themselves to what looks like a world that out paced them materially.  The Muslims and the Brits both came in looking "Better Materially Off" … "Wealthier",  "Smarter Materially"… 

So in 1966, Abhay came to America, and started what is known as "THE HARE KRISHNAS", which is to say, White Students of Bengali Temple Monotheism.  A Hindu looking thing, that is partly more like Islam, Christianity, Judaeism, in that, it DESPISES the caste system, declares equality, and declares monotheism in the name of Hindu Scriptures.  Versions of things then arose, more versions, and splits and such. 

But Abhay’s students, in America, and Europe, in the 1960’s up until today, are the leaders, and founders, of all vegetarianism in the West today.  Before them, vegetarian was a word we never heard in America, and they also brought Yogurt, Incense, Sandals back, and a host of other things that all merge into the "Healthier Spiritual Lifestyle" many Americans now have. 

Yoga. Need I say More?

The REACTION, to the MUSLIM SWORD in BENGAL 500 years ago, is around you today, in the form of all these things. 

The Muslim Blade, led to the Yoga Studio’s in your cities, the vegetarian and vegan restaurants, hippies, sitar’s, ravi shankar, george harrison, psychedelia, you name it, if it wasn’t for the infusion of Indian Culture that the REACTIONARY RELIGIOUS FORCES OF BENGAL CAUSED to be shot into Western Culture… we would still be perhaps "Rocking to Elvis", all of us would be Hamburger People still, and genuflecting to a Catholic Priest, or saying Bless Me Pastor to some guy with an ego bigger than your own. 

We’d be stupid. 

If it wasn’t for the Turks and Persians and Brit who so pissed off Indians that they came and gave us gifts. 

Strange huh?

We are angry, so here, take the best things on Earth !

Including Jyotish, Yoga, Brahma Vidya, Shiva, Krishna, Kirtan, Bhajan, Tablas, Sitars, Yogurt, Healthier Lifestyle Choices, Hipper Awareness of the World, the right to veer Eastern in lifestyle… so many things, that it can’t be really comprehended. 

One Indian’s desire to "show the west up", WORKED, and made us WAY BETTER.   Now if only it would fully spread in America, even into the Heartland. 

Yes, the Muslim and British Swords, led to more Ahimsa, non violence, in their countries. NEVER BEFORE, has there been a MASSIVE DEVOTED VEGETARIAN POPULATION in white countries, never, before, Abhay Caran Deh. 

And his


1966 to the present, although diminished greatly, they are still there, though I do not recommend joining, but some going and learning yes.

As you may know, Das has been struggling with mental issues for decades and even after many doctors and psychiatrists visits he has been put in many medications, but as we could see, none of them worked successfully.

I, myself, am doing my Doctorate on Natural Medicine and as part of my studies it was brought to my attention a particular method of treatment that I felt compelled to follow through, especially because of its method of diagnosis.

Besides an extensive psychiatric evaluation, this method used the help of brain scans to produce a more specific and clear diagnosis. It’s called a SPECT scan.

First, there is a SCID – Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I Disorders (SCID-I) is a semi-structured interview for making the major DSM-IV Axis I diagnosis. Then a SCID-II is a semi-structured interview for making DSM-IV Axis II: Personality Disorder Diagnosis.

Then his brain was scanned. SPECT, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography, is a nuclear medicine procedure that is widely used to study the heart, liver, thyroid, bone, and brain problems. At this clinic, they use SPECT imaging as a tool in the diagnostics and treatment process. This particular clinic has done more than 100.000 scans so far and have about 80% success rate. The unsuccessful ones are the ones who basically don’t follow the treatment plan as directed. They do extensive follow ups as well, until they see that the patients is well enough to follow a healthy life style on their own.

On the image below you can see what a HEALTHY brain SPECT scan looks like:

And this one below, shows Das’ brain SPECT scan:

As you can see, his brain is very much damaged. The parts that are circled show significant lack of blood flow. Which in turn means that these parts “don’t work”. These parts are associated with Autism, Depression, Psychosis and PTSD.

We finally KNOW, what is wrong with this brain.

His official diagnosis is:


The good news is that there is hope in his case. His meds are being adjusted and many supplements were given to him. Along with EMDR therapy, a thorough nutritional plan, plus an exercise regime along with other alternative treatments.

However, it will take some time to see progress, as his condition is quite severe. Sonia and I are committed to help him through this process. We aren’t sure how long will the treatment will take effect, but the doctor assured that there will be improvements.  

We are all very hopeful and we thank all of you for your generosity to make this happen. Without you he would have been doomed to suffer indefinitely. So really thank you from our hearts.

Das, Sonia, and Shakti.

Thank you ALL for existing!

In the years I've been alive, I've never experienced such an astronomical pour of love and kindness from strangers. 
Since this #SaveDasGoravani Campaign started, 7 days ago, the amount of well wishers and donors have literally humbled me. And I am extremely happy to say:


Das, Sonia and I don't have words to describe our gratitude towards all of you! We thank you all from the deepest parts of our hearts for all your support. 

Our special thanks goes to Shri Sunil John, Vic DiCara, Kapiel Raaj, Michael Reed and Ehsan Khan for their efforts in spreading the word so widely that my dream of seeing Das happy, healthy, working and most important of all ENJOYING LIFE is coming closer to reality. Without them, it would have taken way more time to achieve the goal amount. 

We will be going for the treatment at the end of the month. Appointments and lodgings are booked. I really can't believe that IT'S HAPPENING!

This experience has brought back my hope in HUMANITY! 

You, yes, you who are reading this and you who have donated for this cause, know that you are part of this HERO's journey. His victory is your victory. Sunil Bhaiya told us that the entire community is rooting for Das. That he can't believe the amount of outpouring prayers and love has been given here. 

We had people who donated great amounts and those who donated anything they could spare. From students to professionals to Gurus. 

The most beautiful part of this all, is that it has brought the Jyotish community together in the efforts to save our beloved Das Goravani. 

What an accomplishment by proxy!!!! ๐Ÿ˜

I, myself, don't know how to thank all of you! It's so humbling. It strengthened our faith in God and humanity. 

I know with 100% of certainty that Das' brain will be "fixed". I don't know what his plans will be then. Even he doesn't know because he's been ill for so long that he doesn't know how to think ahead anymore. But I can tell you this: Those who know of Das genius in action........YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET!!!!!

For those who believe Das can "will" his way out of this, I ask you to please, understand that you don't know Das. The man used to be the personification of WILL. So much Love and Power he had. Understand that due to Asperger's and concurrent traumas in life, "broke" small parts of his brain. Obviously, genius comes with side effects, negative ones. It's known throughout history. So prayers help, but are not enough. 

I will try to keep you all posted. 

Thank you and Pranaams ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

An opportunity to serve DHARMA

Hello Friends and beloved Souls,

As you all know, Das has been suffering mentally, emotionally and physically for the past 7 years. At this moment he has no longer any will to live. I assure you he won't commit suicide. However, imagine living in that kind of pain day in and day out is literally like living in HELL! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’”

Fortunately, 3 days ago we have found a clinic up in Washington State that treats his condition with the minimum of 80% of success rate. We definitely believe that the cure of his condition is possible with this treatment. They have a state of the art diagnostics machines, brain scans and tools that will pinpoint exactly what he's suffering  from and they have a personalized treatments for his particular condition. 

Over the past decade, Das was put on a number of medications ๐Ÿ’Šand even though they have helped some, they are nowhere near to treat whatever he actually has. Conventional doctors haven't been able to help him without judgment and preconceptions of his symptoms. However, in this clinic, they have professionals, doctors and staff that truly understand that one diagnosis does NOT fit all.  They use conventional medicine machines THE RIGHT WAY to make superb accurate diagnosis. They've shown proof of success for over 2 decades and have a huge database of more than 100K scans and custom treatments, that promise to cure Das. 

There is HOPE for Das. 

However, they are NOT covered by any insurance. My belief is that because they actually work, and shown results that they can actually rid the population from chronic illnesses, Big Pharma, Insurance Lobby, etc, do not support them. 

The entire cost is US$6,000. It includes the travel, lodging and food costs as well for his entire stay there. It's a process of 4 days that we have to stay at the clinic. 

Unfortunately, we do NOT have the means to afford the diagnostics and treatments and we are asking everyone who knows Das Goravani to donate ANY AMOUNT that you can to his PayPal at

I humbly ask you to think about Das when he helped you in anyways, either through his program or writings, books, this blog, past phone calls and conversations with him and remember his kindness and will to help YOU and humanity in one way or the other. 

My father, the late Shri Ravindra Karahe, told me before he died, to help Das in anyway I can because he is a very special Soul and he needs help. After reading some of Das' writings, daddy turned to me and said amazed: "HE KNOWS!!!". After his death, I left my life behind to fulfill his wish because I too think Das is worth saving. From 2010, I'm devoting the rest of my life in serving him and I wish to see Das happy and serving humanity again with his vast knowledge that could simply go to waste if he's not treated. 

Please help us with anything you can, $1, $5, or whatever amount you are able to spare. People have donated from $1 to $700 already. Any amount helps! Any amount gets us closer to the target. We'd like to get to the target as soon as possible so we can end his suffering ASAP! 

As of now, we have amounted US$820. We still have $5,180 to go. And I have a very strong faith that we will reach the target with the help of the kindest souls like you. 

Your donation is an investment for humanity. We need more people like Das Goravani in this world, whose vast knowledge upgrades not only the levels of society, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, our own. 

Please help save this gem of a soul who so wishes to get back on his feet and resume serving us all. 

I'd like to personally thank each and everyone of you who already donated! My Pranaams to each of you. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Das, Sonia and I, Shakti, humbly thank you ๐Ÿ™ for your support no matter how big or small. Every $ counts!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Pranaams to all ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Divinely understanding the roots of Astrology

Before beginning let us offer our mental and heartfelt respects to Sri Brahmaji, who is known as Aja, or the "unborn" because he emanated from a lotus flower, which grew from the naval of Sri Vishnu. Brahma is the creator of all that we see, as he is the topmost demigod, acting directly under the orders of the Supreme Lord, Sri Vishnu. Brahma is the funnel through Whom all Vedic knowledge, or original, primeval knowledge comes to us. Let us ever offer our praises to Brahma, who is one of our highest guardians (and whom really exists in fact, not myth).

I have received more kind notes of encouragement and I am very grateful as it indicates that I should continue this service to our guardians. All glory is theirs, ourselves being only temporarily empowered conduits of whatever we possess. As my Gurudev used to say "everything is but a gracious grant from divinity".

To recap: The material creation is a school in which Visnu sees fit to "raise up" new souls to the standard of spiritual interaction with each other. We are "jiva" souls (jee-va). We are not yet learned in spiritual truths and make mistakes, have greed, selfishness, fears, are not attracted to serving divinity, and other pollution's and imperfections. Hence, an ever changing, erasable classroom situation is setup by Vishnu, known as this material world, wherein we can learn our lessons in a very special format. Namely, reincarnating in temporary bodies which feel very much like our real selves, and through these carry out all kinds of imaginary lives through which, by interacting with each other in various ways, we realize the truth gradually and when qualified, are raised out of here by Vishnu and His associates, or Laksmidevi and her associates and placed in Their eternal pastimes in our pure spiritual bodies never to come to this plane of death and imperfection again.

This is the Vaisnava Vedic version of ultimate reality as it relayed to us in the Bhagavat Purana, Vishnu Purana, Garuda Purana, and other "sattvic" or "pure" Puranas. Which by the way you will find glorified in some of the classic Vedic Astrology Books. It is Parasara Muni's great son, Vyasadeva, who wrote the Bhagavat Purana for example, and when it was spoken by Sukadeva Goswami to Pariksit Maharaj roughly 5000 years ago, Parasara Muni was also present and consented fully to the entire content. Therefore, we can assume and know in our heart of hearts that the main father of Vedic Jyotish, the conduit to us, Parasara himself, accepts this Bhagavat Puranic view of reality. Vedic Jyotish supports it.

So, Vishnu wills the material creation into existence. There are many demigods, and some of them are assigned to run the affairs of the humans. The main demigods assigned to this task are as follows:

Brhaspati Jupiter
Surya Sun
Candra Moon
Shukra Venus
Kartikeya Mars
Sani Saturn
Budha Mercury
Bhumi Earth
Rahu North Node
Ketu South Node

These are actual personalities who have powers greater than you can imagine. They live as people on a higher plane which we cannot see, but the heavenly bodies we can see are their material reflections on our level of existence. But to actually understand how Vedic astrology really works, it is best to understand their personal reality as it is revealed to us in the Puranic literatures. We should go with the entire Vedic program in other words, and not try to pick just the fruits that attract us. That is not the Vedic way and will result in only a partial cure of our problem. Sincerely accepting the whole remedy results in gradual, complete purification and total happiness and ultimately, spiritual liberation.

In arranging the material world for our sustenance, maintenance, our play, our games, and our upliftment, the all knowing Brahma and his demigod assistants made a very complex system of karma. Vedic astrology is a partial map of this system. There are more layers of complexity which they chose to not reveal to us. As Parasara Muni says in his pivotal Jyotish work: "Maitreya, (his student in the book), I am giving only up to what people in Kali Yuga will be able to understand, and not more than that".

In arranging the material karmic control system, the stars were assigned powers. These powers are primeval reality. There are like icons of truth- different parts of the truth- some ghastly, some benefic, etc. The planets, or demigods mentioned above, have to pay homage to these stars as they transit around. Thus, it is really the stars which control the planets temporarily as they pass under them. Yet, the planets also have their natures which may be altered but not fully, by the stars.

Our demigods (the planets) own houses, which are "theirs". They feel at home there. Some of our demigods like each other and get along, while others don't. Would you want an "enemy" in your room when you weren't there or couldn't see it? No way.

That's how they feel when an "enemy" planet is in their house and they are neither in the house nor aspecting "seeing" it.

In this way, you can divinely read a chart. By knowing these personalities via the Puranas, you can understand rather quickly, naturally and in a very deeply significant way, what was going on with the Gods at the moment of some one's birth, which determines what nature they are going to reflect in this life.

For example, Capricorn is Saturn's sign, and of the two, it's the one where Saturn is at his lowest point, in the sense that he is vain, worldly, proud, and not interested in spiritual input. Therefore, it is the sign of debilitation for Jupiter. Jupiter is Brhaspati, the Guru of the Demigods- all of them. His role is to give advice both practical and spiritual. He does not like Capricorn because it is like a locker room to him. He hates it.

To understand Venus one should get to know Shukracarya. He is the Guru of the demons or Rakshasas. Yet, he is a real Brahmin, and he really does know the truth. But, he has a soft spot in his heart for the low class persons, the Rakshasas, those who are opposed at this point in their lives to surrendering to divinity. Shukra wants to help them, to protect them, to give to them.
There are many stories in the Puranas about Shukracarya's activities. He has many times done the opposite of what you would think a Brahmin would do. He has vainly tried to oppose the Lord to help the demons. He thinks "why should only the pure souls always get the Lords protection and not these poor Rakshasha fools?"

So, he has a soft heart for the low persons. And what does he do? He gives them luxury, and directives on how to get happiness now, in this plane. The forward looking more truly religious souls simply know that this is not our permanent home and hence try to make sure that they are fixing up a proper situation in the eventual reality of the next life. But, the Rakshasha mentality is "happiness now". So, Shukra gives advice. Inside his real hope is that, after buying these peoples happiness, maybe they will calm down and come around to the real Vedic ideal and worship Vishnu without any grudge.

Believe me, that is His real intention. So, how does this effect astrology? Here's how: Wherever you see Venus in the chart- don't see Venus, see Shukracarya, and knowing at least the little bit I've told you, see that. See that here is coming their pleasures and their worldly drives, but ultimately it will be frustrating- that's the inbred divine plan of Venus. You can take now, you can try to enjoy it, but ultimately the fact is that this world is only a school and the lessons are intended to eventually lead you OUT OF HERE- so you're never going to find the perfect Venusian situation here- that's part of the plan!

So Venus's placement is where the person is going to try to enjoy, and ultimately get frustrated. It's the point of attachment to matter through which subtle but true spiritual lessons will come. This is the way of Shukracarya.

Now if it is debilitated, as it is in Virgo, then this means that Shukracarya is very frustrated there. He is not able to do his pleasing giving to the person. The person is too mental around the Venusian things. Virgo is ruled by Budha, and Venus doesn't like it when people think too much. That's not his program. His program is "enjoy, be happy, be peaceful, and find God in this beauty". He doesn't like "Gyan" (knowledge). Therefore, he and Budha, the thinking planet, have total disagreement over which signs are "cool". Venus loves Pisces, and Budha hates it, and Budha loves Virgo and Venus hates it.

So, to begin the study of Vedic astrology it is best if one first reads the entire Bhagavat Purana and Bhagavad Gita. The Purana will train you in Vedic Cosmic reality (the Gods and Goddesses, their lives and ways of interacting) and the Gita will teach you the Supreme Lord's conclusions about why He allows this material creation, what is it's purpose, what is the purpose of human life, and so on. Then you are best suited to learn to read the karmic maps presented by Vedic Astrology. These books are available in good English translations. I am more than willing to help anyone interested in any way.

Then, after that, you can trust that Vedic astrology primarily consists of the Nakshatras which are 27 in number, and the signs, which are 12, and the planets, which are 9, and the varga or divisional charts, which are 16 including the Rashi or main chart, and using these primordial elements there are techniques such as Ashtaka Varga and Dasha systems etc., which provide the predictive tools.
Buying a computer program that does everything or learning the rules anyone can do. But having actual deep insight into the nature of the Signs, Stars, and Planets can only be done by one submissive and sincere. We are talking about reading divine game plans. If we rule out the divine, then how smart are we?

Brhaspati is the noble and learned Guru of all the Gods.
Surya is the Sun God and is the father of the warrior class on Earth.
Chandra is the Moon God, in charge of many things indeed.
Shukra is the God of the Venus planet, and is a noble but too soft hearted Brahmin.
Kartikeya or Kuja is a fierce God, Mars.
Sanaiscarya is Saturn, brother of the God of death, Son of the Sun.
Budha, son of the Moon, is youthful, in charge of intelligence.
Bhumi, the Earth Mother Goddess, she is well aware of all that we do on her.
Rahu was a demon but has been rectified largely by getting his head cut off by Vishnu.
Ketu is Rahu's severed body. Rahu is just the head of the original person.

The greatest demigods are not these personalities. Brahma and Indra are leaders amongst the Gods. Brahma is the Supreme. Some think of Siva amongst these but that is not correct. Siva is eternal, and all of these others are not. Even Brahma is "mortal" in the sense that he has a body which is part of this manifest realm and it is also absorbed back into Vishnu at the end of Vishnu's breath.
Only Siva and the Vishnu Tattva Personalities (such as Rama, Nrsingha, Sankarsan, Krishna etc.) are beyond the temporary creation. All the demigods and ourselves are within the material creation. The material creation is only 1/4 of the Supreme Lord's potency, though such numbers are only for our benefit of understanding. He is not bound to them.

So, the demigods who rule all these matters are also living out temporary lives, which are billions of our years long. To them we are like bacteria that come and go faster than you can care and who are smaller than anything you'd care to look at. They see to our environment as a very easy part of their day. It is on automatic pilot you could say. The creation is embedded with super-excellent, loving, automatic lesson giving time. Time is our friend in that is WILL liberate us ultimately, we just have to put with it the hard lessons in the meanwhile. That is why the process of detaching ourselves from our attachment to our bodies- liberating our minds from the false ego of being these bodies- is always the essential Vedic practice or Sadhana in all the levels and forms of Vedic "religion".

I am not harping on religion to avoid talking astrology. If you just want the science, you can easily buy such books at many book stores. I am trying to remain faithful to Parasara who says that only those who believe in God and Guru should be taught the science. I am trying to do it right according to them. Thank you for appreciating this important point.

Reading a chart

I find the interpretation call inspiring.
Read on if you care to hear some of my thoughts on interpretation, otherwise, tickle the delete key!

My thing is to read overall characteristics of the persons divine struggle or challenge in life. This is where my realizations always go.
The whole chart matters together in all matters, but we start from different starting points based on different matters.

Examples: We look to the ninth as our starting point in matters dealing with one's relationship to divine revelation. Then we can read the whole chart from the ninth house as the Lagna, and see all relationships from there- on top of the situation for the ninth lord and house, in the Rashi chart proper, as well as in the Moon Lagna Chart.

The play of the lords in all these charts, adding in their Navamsa placements, Nakshatra Placements, Shad Bala, Play in the Major periods of the life or not, gives us the overview of the situation in the chart.

To do this, we must see patterns quickly. For example, we begin with the Rashi chart. We should immediately see and feel the lordships placements as per the Rashi chart. We should then turn to the Chandra Lagna chart immediately and see it all over again there. Note mentally any repeating patters or "confluence areas"- places where planets are saying the same things, causing a "confluence" or "gathering of influence" on one spot with one message.

So now we see the Rashi, and we see the Relationship to that of the Chandra Lagna, which is to say we have grasped the life of the outter physical being from the Lagna, and from the Chandra Lagna we have gathered about the inner person's vision of their world and self.

We then note if there is agreement, conflict or the specific difference or relationship, between the outter karma and the inner hopes and wishes.

We now know the person overall. We know their life challenges, we know their inner motivations. We see the dashas, and how some of each of these two charts will likely be revealed due to the presence of the appropriate dasha lords in the years of life, whereas we note the less likely to manifest due to the absence of the appropriate dasha lords in the reasonable life span.

We note the Transits, at least the major ones, that are coming or have recently been. We do this because the slow transits, of the Nodes, Saturn and Jupiter, are significant. The Jyotish knows where these planets are at all times, so, it is very easy for them to quickly realize where they've been in the last few years.

So, they can quickly and easily see if the person has recently been through Saturn's transit over the natal moon or ascendent, or Sun, or oppositions to these. These major transits are effectual, and one must be aware, that no matter what else is going on, if the person is in Sada Sati, then certainly things are different than if they are not.

Planets act according most to the subtle science of lordship, combined with their natural peronalities. Seers must learn to realize these combinations. In doing so, one is primarily combining:

1. The planets lordships in the Rasi Chart
2. With who the planet is naturally
3. With the dispositor and house it's in
4. With it's navamsa dispositors situation
5. With nakshatra information
6. Other influences like aspects/conjunctions/transits

This is alot of information.

Learning who the planets are naturally is important. Then learning of what lords do, then realize that this lordship forces the planets to take on qualities which are added onto their natural natures like cloaks of duty and also attitude change.

For example, Jupiter is naturally expansive, but as 8th lord in the second he takes on some bad qualities as the 8th lord, such as accident-causing, and demonstrates "expansive" "speaking" leading to "accidents". That's just combining one Jupiter word with one second house word with one 8th lord word. It is this combining of influences that one must learn, by reading lists of karakas, like those presented in GJ the program.

The influences upon the dispositor of a planet, and it's Navamsa dispositor's situation in the main Rashi chart, these greatly shape the direction the planet will demonstrate it's activities. If "pure" influences are exerted upon these factors, then the planet will demonstrate it's result in a way which is pure, and leads to greater benefit in life. And then the opposite is true.

For example, look to the Navamsa lord of the Moon, and then see that planet back in the Rashi chart. See what kinds of planets are it's conjunctions or dispositor. Like if Ketu, then the person associates easily in renounced settings of spiritual awareness, and if Venus, then the worldy intelligent and successful class of persons as well as the artistic and those enjoying life, become one's associates easily, and if Jupiter, then the person tends towards the learned and aristocratic...and so on.

It is because a planet does what it is told, but because it has a personality of it's own, it does the stuff "his way". So, the Moon does things "her way", but she "does what she's told to do" by the sign, the situation with her dispositors, and so on.

All planets do what they are told, but they do things "their way". So this is why the situation with the LORDS of the planets main "sitting spot" become SO important.

The Lords of the "spot of sitting" is the Rashi lord of that sign, and the Navamsa lord of that sign. These dispositors are sitting somewhere in the Rashi chart. Look there. And without extending judgement further, without going to a secondary level, read their situation straight out, and know that that situation is being pushed down upon the planet we started with, and heavily directing it. Then see those directives being manifest through said planet, according to the nature of that planet.

In other words, the lessons come from the greater majority, which represents the interacting parts of the material energy manifested from divinity, as seen as the interaction of multiple planets in the chart, then being directed down through one planet in the chart, to actually create a "born in blending" event in one specific area of life.

Like, I have Jupiter and Saturn in the 9th in Sagittarius. Jupiter Mahadasha ran from around 10 to 26 years of age- and I've been in Saturn since then and still am.

But the Jupiter, even though so strong it seems, is the mahadasha where I experienced the Saturn influence on that ninth house and Jupiter. Then, in Saturn major I am experiencing the beneficance of that Jupiter upon that Saturn. So the events of the dashas, are more reflective of the INFLUENCES on the Maha Dasha lord.

Well, these are some condensed ideas on interpretation.

Eclipses, Moon and Sensitivity

When the Moon crosses the node point, it wobbles slightly in it's orbit due to the gravity field generated by the node. The node is an inidicator of a junction of planes- the plane on which the Earth and Sun relate- when the Moon crosses that, he is affected by their presence in space. An eclipse is when they are all 3 aligned. Normal, non-eclipsed conjunctions are all other times- the moon crossing this plane, but not in direct alignment with the other two. So eclipses are the most intense nodal conjunctions because they carry the additional gravitational effect of alignment along with "crossing the plane".

The Moon's orbit is not along the eliptic, but has it's own angle. Hence it sometimes "rises above the Earth" and is sometimes "below the Earth". When it comes up, that is crossing Rahu. When it sets, that is crossing Ketu.

So these are all necessary things to know to easily interpret these conjunctions in a human chart.
In both cases, you must first understand that the wobble of the Moon is because of gravitational forces that are generated by the Earth and Sun. This translates to "sensitivity to vibrations based on the interactions of the souls and the field of action", or, "sensitivity to the manifestations of desire and ego". The Sun is the soul, the ego, the being, and the Earth is the field of action.
So these people are always sensitive, usually therefore more mentally hyper, and often therefore seen as difficult, "weird", psychic, abnormal, outcastes, depending on many factors.
The rising of the Moon above the Earth represents awareness. The Moon is trying to come above to protect, to cover and shelter. The Northern course represents the caring of the Gods for all beings. The other course, which begins at "Ketu's gate" for the Moon, and which also therefore lasts a fortnight as does the other, represents the Moons giving up care, or renunciation, being "under" all things taking place here, and overwhelmed by them. Rahu is the incoming breath of the Moon, and Ketu the outgoing.

Those born with Ketu conjunct Moon are overwhelmed in their feelings of sensitivity, and feel the need to retreat to counter this feeling. Therefore, those with Rahu Moons will be more involved, and actually argue and carry on like they care about everything, whereas those with Ketu Moons are more disinclined to be ivolved, and tend to philosophize away the problems they are sensitive to. Rahu is involved, Ketu is retreating.

Wherever is Rahu there will be some involvement there- things of that house run more out of control, and cause us to be involved in the material world- the matters of that house have a hook of obligation, so it feels, into our souls, and makes us to act and perform here. This will be a house very hard to renounce- very hard to ignore.

Ketu on the other hand creates a vacant house often- of the feeling thereof- therefore some will strive to fill it- therefore sometimes Ketu causes great success in the matters of the house where it rests in a persons chart- due to causing them to ever pursue "filling" that emptiness. It can make things ethereal and unseen- like me, I have thousands of friends, but I never see any of them (Ketu in the 11th).
Sri Caitanya, the greatest personage of this Yuga, was born on a raging full Ketu eclipse rising. He was a genious, but his sensitivity tore away at his mind, and most considered him crazy. He was highly sensitive and visionary, to say the least. Normally persons with nodal conjunctions will take to the sensitive arts, the arts, drugs, religion, seclusion, or revolution, or anything other than normalcy. They are usually outcastes or eccentric in some obvious way.
