A very, very special day

1536_govardhan-krishna-wallpaper-01.jpgOctober 30th, 2016 (or for some places Oct. 31, 2016) is a day of great spiritual celebration. There are so many things we can realize about God from the story of Govardhan – Lord’s awareness and personal attention to every individual life circumstances as well as inner problems, His protection is more powerful than any danger, whatever He does is to ultimate benefit for all involved!

The story behind Govardhan Puja 
The day after Diwali is referred to as Annakuta, or Govardhan Puja. On this day the inhabitants of Vrindavan (Lord Krishna’s abode on Earth) would hold a harvest festival in honor of King Indra, the demigod who provided the rains essential for the harvest.

One day, however, Lord Krishna wanted to teach Indra a lesson. He convinced the inhabitants of Vrindavan to honor Govardhan Hill instead, whose fertile soil provided the grass upon which the cows and bulls grazed, and to honor the cows and bulls who provided milk and ploughed the lands. Outraged, Indra retaliated with terrifying thunderstorms. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, calmly lifted Govardhan Hill with the little finger of his left hand. For seven days and seven nights the Lord held up Govardhan Hill, providing a giant umbrella to shelter the inhabitants of Vrindavan from the torrential rain. Realizing the futility of his actions, King Indra bowed down before the Lord with folded hands and offered prayers of supplication. In this way, Lord Krishna demonstrated that He is Deva Deva, the lord of the demigods, and that any purpose for which demigods might be worshiped could easily be served by worshiping Him, the cause of all causes.

At the end of the festival, the hill of prasada (sanctified food) is distributed to the public. All Vaishnava temples in India observe this ceremony, and hundreds of people are given prasada according to the capacity of each temple. And it is also true for all Hare Krishna (ISKCON) temples all around the world! Find the temple near by! And…

Navaratri Festival

2014-03-30-navaratri

Vedic festival “Navaratri” begins October 1, 2016. “Navaratri” lasts nine days and nine nights (from 1 – 10 October 2016). Tenth day ‘Dasara’, considered to be the most significant since symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, of the divine over the demonic. During the 9 days of ‘Navratri’ Mother is worshiped in her three forms: Durga (Kali), Lakshmi and Saraswati.

Durga (Kali) – in this way the mother is manifested in the aspect of destruction and transformation. The first three days of Navaratri  ( October 1-3), this time the destruction of the old.
Lakshmi – The Divine Mother manifests aspect of prosperity, satisfaction derived from worldly or spiritual life. (October 4-6 )
Saraswati – in this incarnation of Mother appears as the giver of knowledge, wisdom, the fruit of self-exploration and self-denial (7-9 October 7-9)
How significant these days with the position of Vedic Astrology? These days are setting “mood” for the next six months.

The first three days “Navaratri” are associated with Durga – the universe is dominated by the energy of purification and forgiveness. Our energy is renewed in these three days, purified and transformed.We can pray to Motherly aspect of Absolute for purification and removing the obstacles on the spiritual path.

The next three days connected with Lakshmi. During these three days, we are filled with new energy, we accumulate it. Here we can pray to be of service to Lord and His children.

The last three days are dedicated to Saraswati -is  the goddess of knowledge, she gives us the wisdom and understanding how to use the energy for the good of everyone. On these we can pray about meeting  with bonafide spiritual master and about association of elevated souls.

On the last day of Navaratri, we should get the inspiration  for a better, more spiritual life. We can say that during these days, we get “the charge of light” that helps us to overcome our  inner demons of selfishness, pride, greed, anger, and so on.

Vedic astro-forecast for October – part 2 (by Anna Semyonova)

63e975223d52308de0881c564b6f5a62In general, you can expect the manifestation of large ambitions, and, importantly, during this period a person can achieve the goal by the shortest and direct way. Just as the appetite comes with eating, the same way these goals will multiply, as though from a cornucopia … So our task is not to waste the potential of October in pursuit of fantasies emerging in our brain. It is better to make a plan (of what you want to do or start this month) in advance  and stick to it no matter that would come to mind during the process. As they say, any success has to be prepared.

Rule of Conduct in October is as follows: “The higher a sense of moderation/proportion a person has , the greater the chances for the realization of opportunities.” When things go smoothly, we forget our place and believe that we deserve it, but this thanklessness is what prevents us feel real happiness from the things done. Our ingratitude to God is like a filter, that do not allow the happiness into our hearts. So, we must try to thank both God and the people around us who bring us the opportunities. In our case, more likely those will be some senior and very important persons, and also women.

October will bring the need for peace and love of order. Therefore, attempts  of reconciliation will continue, but there is concern it will not be enough. Nevertheless, some problems, of course, we will be able to solve, and beautifully, efficiently. Month’s energy pushes us to search for unusual, original solutions that are also very expensive. How can I use this time in a relationship? A good phase for new agreements, clarification of  expectations, and reducing  of inconsistency. And also to convince your spouse  to go to some trips, making purchase, updates, celebrations. Perfect time for joint pilgrimages.

Disputes and disagreements this month, if happen, can lead to nervous exhaustion and, as a consequence, colds or other problems of the immune system. Therefore, your health depends on your own ability to keep the peace. As it goes in the “Buchenwald alarm”song : “People of the world! Let the vigilance be tripled! Take care of the peace! Take care of the peace! Protect, protect, protect the peace! ”

And in the world to the first place will come the issues of preserving the institution of marriage, juvenile justice and similar problems. October, in addition to the traditional approach to the understanding and promotion of values, will bring more understanding of a sense of duty, and therefore, it will be easier to save the family for the family coaches. We can talk to people about various duties and responsibilities, of duty that person fulfills during a whole lifetime and that way s/he grows through the loyalty and stability, and people will listen to us, understand, and agree!

Vedic astro-forecast for October – part 1 (by Anna Semyonova)

The main energy of October is a desire for purity. Around us there is so much dirt and nonsense, it begins to annoy. Even the most steeped in sin can stop and think again, or at least to think about what s/he was doing. And there is only one thing needed  – the presence of (even a small grain of) honesty in the heart. And sincerity reacts to sincerity, therefore, the quality of sincerity should be our foundation in all our relations in October. If you want to change something – be sincere.

Sincerity will force many of us to look for something new. You will see the long-awaited desire for change. Perhaps even expectation of a miracle, that should happen and bring an update. People are tired of suffering, and when they are given a ray of hope, they are happily hold onto it. Indeed, in October, especially the first half of it can bring us to the solution of many problems, good luck and unexpected lightness in matters that have seemed difficult and even unsolvable.

This means that many things will come to hand, horizons become wider, trees – larger, and we – younger.  We certainly are not going to get younger, but at this time we can feel ten years younger in every sense. This is when you can start a new large-scale projects, which were difficult to execute in previous months due to the obstacles and delays. In October, you can easily achieve goals and really expand the horizons of your influence. Relationships can start to improve and friends to return. There will be new grounds for cooperation, especially in politics, business and religious projects. However, we must not forget that this positive period still takes place within a year of negative Mars , which means that you need to make sure that this cooperation does not go into the area “being  friends against someone.”

This month will give also some impatience in the implementation of plans. Whenever things start to go well after stagnation, people tend to lose the skill of  waiting patiently for the result, while laboring on it’s achievement. Unfortunately, along with appearance of  the ease  attachment to the results comes back. Generally  October will push toward excess, so you have to follow the diet and control all other aspects of life, where the excesses are usually shown. Desires simply multiply. In general, we should not forget about moderation!
