Do what you will or desire to, the eternal India springs back into life time and again, as has happened in Indian history and reminds you of the eternal spiritual legacy of the country. It never dies. It gets revived always.

occasion to say so arises because today (27 November 2007) one television channel went on giving some glimpses into the lives of some Indian celebrities---all of them shown either visiting temples or showing the positive results of their prayers.

Sanjay Dutt

Sanjay Dutt getting bail from the Supreme Court of India, not a judgement in his favour or acquittal,but relief is being shown by a television channel repeatedly. In the context of judicial delays well known to us in India, the judgement may come after many months or even one year.

The female anchor in the television
channel was repeatedly referring to the continuous recitation of Hanuman Chalisa of Tulsidas, Sanjay Dutt has been doing.

There was a news item that while in
Yervada jail earlier, Sanjay Dutt woke through the night did 100 recitations of Hanuman Chalisa and early next morning he saw a monkey sitting on a tree outside his cell in the jail. He thought, said the press report, that Hanumanji was pleased with his him and his prayers.

Today, the female anchor has been
saying repeatedly that his prayers have been anwered again, but is failing to distinguish between bail and acquittal.

This relief has
come in Jupiter-Venus-Saturn. What will happen in the pratyantara of Mercury will have to be watched.

Yes, I know of many cases where
Hanuman Chalisa done by many, particularly the lines Chute Bandi Maha Sukh Hoi (there is freedom from imprisonment and happiness resulting from it) has offered great relief.

an incident shown repeatedly is elevating and revives that spiritual zeal which never dies in India among Hindus who have no central or centralized authority to control and regulate their spiritual/religious lives.

Do what you
have faith in is the brilliant flexible scheme of spiritual remedies. There is so much freedom of thought and expression within its brilliant scheme of spiritual remedies.

Do not be misled
those mercenary astrologers who insist you must do what they prescribe. I have known the disciples of Neem Karoli Baba doing only Hanuman Chalisa for any and every problem and getting relief. The Dutt family belongs to that school.

I know of many who do Vishnu
Sahastranama as I do and Narayan

There are others in Vrindavan who
do Radha Kripa Kataksha Stotra only and some Gopal Sahastranam only.

Of these, only those which an individual
does it himself is seen to yield some results without of course liquidating karma phala or results of karmas. But remember, Sanjay Dutt has not been acquitted. It is only a relief for him , a story which will help many people see the beauty of prayers done by oneself and not through paid agents who claim to have received some license from God to alleviate the miseries of people---on payment, and exploit them. That is ofcourse a business in India’s cottage industry called astrology.

It is what has been emphasised repeatedly
in the beautiful book of Dr. Geeta Kathuria, ASTROLOGY AND FAITH with case studies based on medico-astrological analysis and shantis done by the suffering individual or
his mother/father, wife or husband etc.

Pratibha Patil

Then they showed Pratibha Patil, the woman president of India visiting Shirdi Sai Baba temple and praying for the prosperity of India. When the president of India does it, it becomes a good example before the audience, the viewers, the listeners. Now see the variety--she is praying at the temple of Shirdi Sai Baba, and it is not Hanuman Chalisa as is being done by Sanjay Dutt.

There is no rigid
conformism in India among Hindus. You can pray according to your tradition and samskaras.

And the Bachchan family in Dwaraka in Gujarat is shown, the place of Lord Krishna, King Krishna, not Bal Krishnakrishna of Vrindavan. Now see the variety and the inherent catholicity of Hindu religion which is described as Sanatan Dharma. It is on the birth anniversary of the father of Amitabh Bachchan which is also the centenary. Harivamsha Rai was born on 27 November 1907.

Bachchans are either big news always or
the television channels make it big news. Bachchan bytes have become a common, even sickening, features of television news. I know personally that the mother of Amitabh is a devotee of a Mahatma of Chitrakoot and Amitabh is deeply religious, an aspect of life
which the television channels fail to bring out.

I will post soon in two parts an astroprofile
of Harivamsha Rai Bachchan,the poet and father of Amitabh Bachchan which I had written four years as an astro obituary.
