Shankracharya Jayendra Saraswati and KN RaoThe news of the death of Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati did not surprise me as for six years at least, as I personally know, his health had been bad, his diabetes was not under control. The three women who had conspired against him, Sonia Gandhi, Jayalalitha and Shashikala each suffered in her own way. Jayalalitha won elections after being defeated for one term, became the Chief minister but suffered from bad health and died a mysterious death. Shashikala is in jail and her claims of leadership is not accepted in AIADMK. It makes her a weak politician. Sonia Gandhi, now suffering from some disease has retired from active politics, has handed over the presidentship of the Congress Party to her son, in the usual familiar Nehru way---dynastic succession. Sonia’s role in the sinister plot to arrest Shankaracharya Kanchi has been mentioned by the former president of India Sri Pranab Mukherjee (See appendix I).
Mouni Baba ( 3rd March came the news of the death of Mouni Baba, three days after the mahasamadhi of Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati on the last day of February. Jayendra Saraswati, born in 1935, was 82 years when he took samadhi. In the case of Mouni Baba we never knew his age as no one knew it and it was guessed that he was ninety three years old when he took samadhi though some newspapers said that he was 108 years old then.

The Arab Spring which started with Tunisia and Egypt was given enough publicity in the western press keeping in view the interests of western countries, the neo economic imperialistic interests centering round oil and protection of Israel mainly with only Iran defying it. Libya too having fallen, the next flashpoint, the one that clearly involves aggression with the west, is Iran. The fall of Libya and Gaddafi was a big tragedy of many Libyans as they cannot dream of a better welfare state in which what they lost in terms of some personal liberties were more than compensated by benefits which would be the envy of the best welfare states of even Norwegian countries.

Iran too is not accepting the economic sanctions easily and will dominate news whole of the year 2012 as its horoscope shows. Though doubted for the correct time, as Ayatollah Khomeini is said to have come into power and was, perhaps, sworn in earlier, the one horoscope that may be dependable is given here.

Iran, a nation known in world history for its great culture and civilization, heroic tales that   appeared unbelievable and noble deeds, is a Shia nation whose destruction is a wish of Sunni Saudi Arabia and also Israel with its own problems of being surrounded by hostile nations.

In its present juncture of history, Iran is prepared to defy world’s mightiest power USA. Apart from the support of Russia and the sympathy of China, Iran stands isolated, almost like Israel. But Israel has the full support of USA and of some western European countries. Iran has to face USA, west European countries and hostile Sunni nations by which it is surrounded. Syria which can and might have helped it, has its own revolt, inflamed by the west, to face.

These facts help us decide that in the dasha of Venus, like Pakistan which has now strained relations with USA, Iran is in an aggressive mood and has to face aggressive USA.

Nuclear Program
It is well known and now confirmed that Iran has developed nuclear weapons to an extent that it can test fire nuclear missiles.

This comes days after Iran threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, a key oil export route, if new sanctions are imposed over its nuclear program . No wonder that in the present dasha of Venus comes the news.

From Teheran Times: 30 Dec 2011 - Tension between Iran and the United States in the Strait of Hormuz increased again Thursday as an Iranian military official told the official IRNA news agency its planes had shot photographs and video of a US aircraft carrier in the strategic narrow waterway in the Persian Gulf. According to the Associated Press, Rear Adm. Mahmoud Mousavi was quoted saying the photos are evidence that Iran’s navy is “observing moves by foreign forces” not far from where Iranian ships are conducting military exercises. The Strait of Hormuz is a vital transit point for up to 20 percent of the world’s oil supply. Only a few dozen miles wide at its narrowest point, it lies between Iran, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman. Iran said this week it would choke off that supply if the United States and its allies imposed sanctions on Iran’s oil sector.”

Venus dasha began from
12 Feb 2008. It is Venus Sun upto June 2012

Impact on India
The immediate effect of this will be big rise in oil prices all over the world with India already suffering from rupee becoming weaker against dollar. The Saturn Jupiter axis along the twelve six axis of the Indian horoscope is offering no relief in this area and India’s foreign debt has increased enormously already. Further increase in oil prices in India will lead to greater price spiral.

News about Nuclear power
Coincidentally, while Europe is discussing the future of new nuclear energy after this disasters in Japan, there has been a   disaster in a nuclear submarine in Russia, comes the news of nuclear Iran and the reaction of US and its threatened economic sanctions and possible armed confrontation.

In the election year
It is an election year in Russia with Putin seeking to become president and swap places with Medvedev and in USA president Obama will seek another term.

The economic recovery in USA has been poor and the risk of involvement in a clash in any country will be unpopular. Yet USA cannot see a nuclear Iran emerge as a threat to Israel and its own precious interests. It has already armed Saudi Arabia with arms in fabulous arms deals which of course benefits it enormously. That does not solve the problem if Iran test fires nuclear missiles and USA will have to intervene provoking protests , mostly unpopular. Clearly a skirmish, not a war is in the offing.

The New Year horoscope of 2011 (Chaitra Shukla Pratipada) of Iran shows a year of terrible aggression against it and by it with Kanya rising and five planets in the seventh house with Mars and Saturn in the lagna.

We have our attention riveted on the fiasco of the Lokepal bill. Pakistan also in the dasha of Venus with Mesha lagna is facing Memogate and terrible strains in its relations with USA. A  little further, Iran has become a flashpoint affecting the world and of course India.

I will write separately on what I had already written about Pakistan.


18 November 2011, 6:05 AM - Saturn in the seventh house of Pakistan’s horoscope and Jupiter in the lagna in transit now, clearly shows, particularly in the mahadasha of Venus, the seventh lord, a very significant change in the top level administrative set up of Pakistan, affecting President Zardari and even the possible change in its foreign policy. That can be seen in detail later.
