As per System's Approach to the Vedic Astrology, the sign Scorpio was rising in
the Ascendant at 5.21 degrees on the birth of the native.
personality traits of the native are passionate, energetic, vindictive, intense.
His positive qualities are: strong willed, resourceful, full of self-confidence
and magnetism, subtle and diplomatic, courageous, shrewd and masterful. Of course,
there are negative qualities also which are : possessive, jealous and cunning,
sarcastic, ruthless and proud, violent.
is the 8th sign of the zodiac. This is the negative sign of Mars. Scorpions generally
possess a well-proportioned body and slightly long hands. Their bodily stature
is above average and commanding appearance. Scorpio is a fixed sign. As a result
Scorpions are particularly determined individuals. They prefer to crush obstacles,
to move forward and fight to the end even in a losing battle. The watery nature
of this sign gives them a fertile imagination and a sharp intelligence.
people have the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mercury as benefic planets and
Rahu, Ketu, Mars and Venus as malefic planets
The native was born and brought up in a well to do family. Spiritualism and occult
science had an inherent appeal to the native. On the other hand, despite amazing
persistence and willpower there are some very definite self-destructive influences
in the native's life.
Rahu's main period, starting Oct.16. 1955 until the end of Sept. 1972, the native's
quest was to aspire for and acquire higher knowledge both on the academic and
spiritual level. It is also indicated in his birth chart that during the sub period
of Venus in the main period of Rahu, during year 1967 - 68, the native would search
for a Spiritual group and that is when he joined the mission of his Spiritual
Master, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabupada whom he served very diligently.
His strong desire, sharp intelligence and will power would enable him to acquire
management skills and Vedic knowledge which helped increase his involvement in
the movement and made it easy for him to rise to administrative and leadership
positions. His positions included becoming the personal secretary to his spiritual
master. His spiritual master was His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
the founder and acarya of the revolutionary spiritual movement called Iskcon which
in a short time of its founding became commonly known worldwide as the Hare Krishna
main period of Jupiter, the planet of divine grace, started Oct. 15. 1973 and
ended Oct. 14,1989. During this time period the native demonstrated leadership
at every level of his involvement in the worldwide Iskcon organization, culminating
in his administering at the top level of a prominent Guru until his death March
15, 2002. The native was running in the weak main period of Saturn and the weak
sub period of Moon when he died at the age of round about 56 years old in a tragic
car accident while he was traveling on his preaching mission.
native's horoscope reads that the Sun, the lord of the 10th house (profession
in spiritualism, administration, interest in politics etc.) is in association
with Mercury, the lord of the 11th house (income through friends and associates).
They are both occupying the 8th house of Gemini (easy gain through the source
of profession and associates). The Sun is weak due to its placement in the 8th
house of the occult while aspecting the 2nd house of wealth and status which is
ruled by Jupiter. This means that the native had a strong desire to become a leader
in the field of spiritualism so that he could fulfill his personal aspirations
for name, fame, wealth and status.
Moon, the royal planet and lord of the 9th house (interest in learning and understanding
Dharma) occupies the 3rd house of karma (initiative and inclination in spirituality
etc.). Jupiter casts an aspect at the Moon from its location. This indicates that
the native was highly inclined to learn and understand knowledge in spiritual
science and interested in teaching people all over the world.
the lord of the 2nd house (Artha....profession/occupation) though weakly disposed,
occupies the 11th house of Virgo which somewhat guarantees that through command
in his profession, by hook or by crook, the native would enjoy name, fame, status
etc through his friends and associates . By the same token he could blemish his
reputation and humiliate himself via corrupt practices in his spiritual profession
as a self-aggrandizing Leader through dishonesty, lies and cheating. This is also
indicated by the placement of the Sun and Mercury in the 8th house (easy gains,
interest in mystical sciences, occult, vulnerability, etc) .
Rahu, the legendary deceptive planet, in the 7th house of moral conduct, afflicts
the weakly disposed lord of the 2nd house, Jupiter who is occupying the 11th house
of Virgo. This leads to controversy in fulfilling his own personal agenda through
deceptive moral conduct in pursuance of his profession.
further prove this point, Mars the malefic lord of the 6th house (difference of
opinion, dispute, conflicts etc) is weakly disposed, occupying the 10th house
of a weak Sun. Mars conjuncts the 10th house, and afflicts very closely the 1st
house, the 4th house and the 5th house at most effective point of the Ascendant.
This means health problems (possibly cancer), controversy and disputes, differences
of opinion, all sorts of conflicts. His professional conduct with regard to practicing
the rules and regulations set forth by the head of the organization (the spiritual
master) was to suit his personal motivation to maintain and sustain name, fame,
wealth and status etc.
example: There is controversy among the native's associates concerning the poisoning
of the native's Spiritual Master His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila
Prabhupada, the Founder and Acarya of ISKCON and the native's involvement in this
poisoning. This confirms how cunningly the native was able to manipulate himself
through allegations and disputes. His own conflicting statements made at different
times on this issue indeed prove the manipulative abilities of the native as described
above in his horoscope chart
the lord of the afflicted 4th house ( spiritual life, domestic and mental peace,
growth, comfort, luxuries, vehicles and conveyances, property etc.) is weakly
disposed and in infancy occupying the 9th house of Dharma. Venus the lord of the
12th house (losses, transcendence, enlightenment, etc) is malefic, and weakly
disposed conjuncting in 9th house. This clearly indicates that the native would
not transcend in his quest for spiritualism or monastic work. In other words,
during his life the native would lose any true spiritual growth because he would
continue to practice with corrupted spiritual principles.
Despite the fact that the native was highly motivated to acquire and understand
spiritual knowledge he was not able to transform himself during the short span
of his life because of Jupiter being afflicted by Rahu and because the Sun, the
lord of the 10th house (significator of self-realization..soul) was in infancy
and rendered weak due to its placement in the 8th house. Jupiter (the guru) being
afflicted by Rahu from the 7th house (resorts to corrupt practices in cultivating
spiritual profession) did not allow the native to serve his profession of teaching
and preaching spiritualism without corrupted practices. In other words the native
did not live or lead a clean spiritual life.
Further more, as indicated above, the malefic planet Mars Lord of the 6th house
controlling health, difference of opinion, dispute, conflicts etc. is weakly disposed
occupying the 10th house of weak Sun. Mars conjuncts the 10th house, and afflicts
very closely the 1st house, the 4th house and the 5th house at most effective
point of the Ascendant strongly indicate problems in spiritual transformation
(self-realization) and a death due to an accident.
readers may take note that, Manarishi Prasara, the author of the BPHS, states
that for a human being to achieve liberation of the soul or complete self-realization
such as Paramatma realization and realization of ones eternal relationship with
the Supreme Personality of Godhead at the end of ones life, at the time of birth
the 9th house, the 4th house and its respective lord and significator as well
as the Sun planet and Jupiter must be strong, well-placed, free from any type
of afflictions from outer forces such as malefics including Rahu and Ketu.
I will sight such an example from the horoscope of Srila Prabupada, the Divine
Spiritual Master and the Founder Acaraya of the Iskcon. At the date and time of
His Divine Grace Srila Prabupada's birth place, the configuration of the planetary
arrangement was very auspicious. The Sun, the planetary king, was in his own sign
of Leo in 9th house of Dharma and in association with Jupiter, Planet of Grace,
and Ketu, the Planet of Spiritual knowledge. Mercury was exalted in her own sign
of Virgo in 10th house of profession. Lord of the 3rd house Saturn was exalted
in 11th house as well as Moon was exalted and so on. That is why Srila Prabupada
is a Self - Realized Soul and is accepted world wide as a true Authority in the
Science of Self Realization. In other words, he is a Nitya Siddha personality,
empowered by the creator, Sri Krishna.
(Note ; Srila Prabupada's birth particulars are ; dob. Sept. 1,1896, tob. 3.24
pm. pob. Calcutta. Interested readers are welcome to write to me for any comments
on the birth Chart of Srila Prabupada.)
But in this case of the native, both the Sun and Jupiter are weak due to the placement
and afflictions as well as the 9th house and 4th house are afflicted by the malefic
Venus and Mars respectively at their location in the native's chart. Therefore,
as soon as the native's past life credit of good karmas known as Pralabda Karmas
were exhausted, the native met with a fatal car accident and left his body on
March 15,2002 at 7 a.m. near Mayapur, India. The native was then running in the
main period of Saturn in the sub period of Moon.
The analysis of the planetary configuration of the day on which he met his death
in a car accident are as follows ;
a.) Transit Rahu impacted the 8th house of death by conjunction and afflicting
the 12th house (losses, end of life, hospitalization) owned by most malefic Venus.
b.)Malefic, Venus, owner/ruler of the 12th house was transiting in the 5th house
of Pisces in conjunction with a weak Moon (combusted) during its'sub period and
a weak Sun (due to infancy). Both significators (karka) of longevity were weak
which took the life of the native. In addition, Saturn another significator (karka)
of longevity was also transiting in association of Rahu in the 7th house of Taurus
owned by Venus.
The malefic natal Mars significator (karka ) of accident occupying the 10th house
afflicted transit Mercury in 4th house (vehicle and conveyance ) which brought
about the accident. At the same time afflicted Jupiter (Guru) Lord of the 2nd
house (Artha… Profession/occupation… he represented himself as a Self Styled
Guru) was transiting the 8th house of Gemini (karka of travel) .
other words on that day, the native , occupying the position of a teacher ( self-styled
guru in the Iskcon organization) was traveling in a car when he met with an accident.
The driver of the car in which the native was riding lost control of the car and
hit a tree. The native lost his life.
native chose, through his free will, to enjoy his good karma for his own personal
glory instead of utilizing his past good karma in the service of, and complete
surrender to, the mission of his spiritual master. Whatever service the native
rendered to his Guru Maharaja in the beginning was nullified by his choosing to
become guru by hook or by crook. This was due to Rahu afflicting Jupiter and also
due to the weak placement of the Sun and Mercury besides the affliction of malefic
Mars as explained above. He lost the opportunity to completely transform his life
and died miserably according to his destined Karma.
over, the native, having a strong desire for being guru, stated in his 'living
will' that after his death he wanted his body to be buried in the Holy Dhama of
Mayapur where he would be worshipped and glorified amongst other saintly personalities.
This means that the native wanted his own prophecy to be fulfilled. He had such
a magnetic personality that his followers and associates followed him blindly.
This is indicated by the position of Rahu afflicting Jupiter and by the placement
of the planet Sun and Mercury in his chart.
native had the opportunity to rise above the laws of karma but due to the various
afflictions in his chart, he was unable to transcend his pre-destined karma. This
was because of his chosen desire. He chose by his free will to become guru and
to gratify himself by accepting glorification. Thus he wanted to enjoy name, fame
and status for himself instead of serving and surrendering to the purpose of his
Guru Maharaja. The native served his own purpose to glorify himself on the same
level of his Guru Maharaja. That is called Guru Aparadha as per Jyotir Veda.
offences to his own guru (maha aparadha) are indicated in his chart by Jupiter
being afflicted by Rahu and also by Mars, the lord of conflicts,dispute etc afflicting
the natives' own sign of Scorpio. Ketu ( the planet of spiritual knowledge) occupies
the afflicted ascendant. This translates into practicing a corrupt form of spiritualism
motivated by the desire for personal glorification, culminating in accepting the
position of a so called bonafide guru within Iskcon. This clearly explains why
he would master mind a plan to declare himself guru. Thus he could have his desire
for personal glorification fulfilled by accepting thousands of disciples and have
access to easy money. This is indicated in his chart. The Sun who is the lord
of the 10th house of profession is occupying the 8th house (easy gain) the house
of Gemini at a most effective point, and is aspecting the 2nd house of Jupiter
(status and wealth) which is afflicted by Rahu. In addition to that Jupiter from
the 11th house aspects at distance his own 5th house of Pisces (students and disciples)
which means that he would have thousands of his disciples following him blindly
the way, in the birth chart of Lord Shri Chaitanaya Mahaprabhu, an unafflicted
Ketu was in the Ascendant which was perfect for spiritualism, no doubt. But in
this case, Ketu is also in the Ascendant but unfortunately it is afflicted by
the malefic Mars which means that the native would practice corrupted spiritualism,
and he did.
corrupted practice of spiritualism for personal name and fame does not help the
practitioner. Rather, the practitioner is severely punished by the laws of karma.
It is said that any human being dies due to accident takes the body of a Ghost
(Bhuta) to suffer the sins.
my above statement from point of view of the Vedic injunction, I would like to
quote from the Canto 6 vol 2 Ch7 text 22 ;
Translation: Because of your misbehavior toward Brhaspati, you have been defeated
by the demons. My dear demigods, since the demons were weak, having been defeated
by you several times, how else could you, who were so advanced in opulence, be
defeated by them?
Purport: The devas are celebrated for fighting with the asuras perpetually. In
such fights the asuras were always defeated, but this time the demigods were defeated.
Why? The reason, as stated here, was that they had offended their spiritual master.
Their impudent disrespect of their spiritual master was the cause of their defeat
by the demons. As stated in the sastras, when one disrespects a respectable superior,
one loses his longevity and the results of his pious activities, and in this way
one is degraded.
can humbly learn from the Humility of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada by reading
from the Purport of SB 4.12.33:
"This incident proves that the siksa- or diksa-guru who has a disciple who
strongly executes devotional service like Dhruva Maharaja can be carried by the
disciple even though the instructor is not as advanced. Although Suniti was an
instructor to Dhruva Maharaja, she could not go to the forest because she was
a woman, nor could she execute austerities and penances as Dhruva Maharaja did.
Still, Dhruva Maharaja was able to take his mother with him. Similarly, Prahlada
Maharaja also delivered his atheistic father, Hiranyakasipu. The conclusion is
that a disciple or an offspring who is a very strong devotee can carry with him
to Vaikunthaloka either his father, mother or siksa- or diksa-guru. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta
Sarasvati Thakura used to say, "If I could perfectly deliver even one soul
back home, back to Godhead, I would think my mission - propagating Krishna consciousness
- to be successful." The Krishna consciousness movement is spreading now
all over the world, and sometimes I think that even though I am crippled in many
ways, if one of my disciples becomes as strong as Dhruva Maharaja, then he will
be able to carry me with him to Vaikunthaloka."
From the purport of Srimad-Bhagavatam canto 4, chapter 12, verse 33: "Dhruva
Maharaja goes back to Godhead."

Today I needed to quote a Verse from Bhagavatagita As It

TKG died on his way to Calcutta.
Dear Readers, please read 8.5 verse from the original Bhag.
as it is ;
In this verse the importance of Krsna consciousness is stressed.
Anyone who quits his body in Krsna consciousness is at once
transferred to the transcendental abode of the Supreme Lord.
The word smaran ("remembering") is important. Remembrance
of Krsna is not possible for the impure soul who has not
practiced Krsna consciousness in devotional service. To
remember Krsna one should chant the maha-mantra, Hare Krsna,
Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama,
Rama Rama, Hare Hare, incessantly, following in the footsteps
of Lord Caitanya, being more tolerant than a tree, humbler
than the grass and offering all respect to others without
requiring respect in return. In such a way one will be able
to depart from the body successfully remembering Krsna and
so attain the supreme goal.
Read the changed and edited verson of 8.5. Bhag. as it is
In this verse the importance of Krsna consciousness is stressed.
Anyone who quits his body in Krsna consciousness is at once
transferred to the transcendental nature of the Supreme
Lord. The Supreme Lord is the purest of the pure. Therefore
anyone who is constantly Krsna conscious is also the purest
of the pure. The word smaran ("remembering") is important.
Remembrance of Krsna is not possible for the impure soul
who has not practiced Krsna consciousness in devotional
service. Therefore one should practice Krsna consciousness
from the very beginning of life. If one wants to achieve
success at the end of his life, the process of remembering
Krsna is essential. Therefore one should constantly, incessantly
chant the maha-mantra—Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna
Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare
Hare. Lord Caitanya has advised that one be as tolerant
as a tree (taror iva sahisnuna). There may be so many impediments
for a person who is chanting Hare Krsna. Nonetheless, tolerating
all these impediments, one should continue to chant Hare
Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare
Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, so that at the end of one’s
life one can have the full benefit of Krsna consciousness.
Did TKG has the qualification as per the original Bhag.
8.5 purport by SP.? The answer is NO.
Did TKG has the qualification as per the revised and edited
Bhag.8.5 purport by JAS ? The answer is YES.
How these people the editor JAS at BBTI changed and deleted
completely to best suit their agenda, Guru System. It is
really a shame.
That is why we have to educate the innocent people out there
with the right message of Srila Prabhupada gave us all.
That is the duty of all of us.
