hi

i was veda patasala student with normal high school curriculam...i studied vedas with formal school education ...i was school

teacher too...im in USA NOW....i can guide ur value based education..just info..i did MASTER OF EDUCATION WITH PH.D..
I am interested in starting an educational institution of web based learning for parents, grandparents and children of Hindus who have become distanced from their original land of Bharatha, but would like to pass on the Sanatana Dharma to their children. I propose to educate this group, starting from childhood about how to instill a love for Hindu culture and Sanatana Dharma. If you have any input, I would like to hear from you.

My recent email
I am trying to address the supposed situation where everyone has a family which originates from a man and wife or a couple. To keep up with times.. we can include lgbtq
You had talked about homeless people all over the world.
Do you realise that after what the americans have consistently done to my life repeatedly.. i too should be a homeless person. This is not the case because i have a strong nuclear and extended family which started from my mother.
The marriage bureau i have suggested will improve chances of a family being made and surviving thereby giving a chance for future homeless people from not picking at garbage bins but will instead have an uncle like you supporting from outside.. including my brother and father means i am now having a place to live and mental fortification that there is somebody behind me so i should goto work even if it is a security job.
No. The marriage bureau is not a flip switch solution to homeless or poverty.. but in due time it will provide a better environment.

I guess the min marriage age can be left to the girl who approaches the bureau or the family instead of it being hard set at 21.. but just my thoughts as i felt atleast some post high school qualification must be held by the girl child.
Other rules can be determined by the community elders.. like for men and age difference for the couple etc..
Thanks

Hi Declan
Thanks for showing interest. Jothidam or josiyam is not just that small pdf attachment. A separate PhD degree can be written on this subject.
I am trying to see if i can get help in establishing a sanskrit college in australia to study this form of astrology and more aspects helping civilisation.
If we can experiment and standardise this science we could probably add this to another way of matchmaking as we have only freewill at present to form couples.
I am just pointing to the tip of the iceberg of what sanskrit holds in terms of vast stores of knowledge which can be helpful to humanity.
If we put enough research into josiyam we could have a marriage bureau just like the job seeker program where we could scientifically match a girl and a boy so they would live together constructively and happily. This can solve a lot of problems like high divorce rates, single parents, and teenage pregnancies. Teenage pregnancies because the marriage bureau will eventually assure everyone that they will have a stable partner reducing unstable relationships.
We could set the eligibility criteria as 21 years of age for women so they have an opportunity to complete atleast a 4 year bachelors degree before they start a family. An educated woman means a better family in all manner. At the same time all efforts must be put in for a woman to be married by 25 to ensure big families and strong progeny considering the biological clock of women. We can have the marriage bureau ensure support in the initial stages after marriage just like job seeker supports new job holders for a period before letting them go. This will ensure more number of successful marriages or partnerships as it is called in australia.
For broken marriages inspite of best efforts the marriage bureau can step in for counselling and second chances.
Usually in the hindu society astrology is mostly the forte or brahmins who advice on matches but nowadays with the decline of brahmin society there has come to be a separate class of astrologers who have taken it upon themselves to research and study this subject.
But lets see.. for all this we need to start with a small school or college teaching sanskrit or samskritam as it is originally called.

Thanks

Hey Krishnan,

Very interesting – maybe when I get some spare time today I can do some digging as well into this. I am very much keen to learn aspects of things I do not know about.

I will try to find more on the jobseeker program if I can J

Hi Declan,

As a first reciprocal step to your providing me with the services australia website link, i am attaching a simplistic but complete guide to tamil astrology. This document is in tamil but a NAATI translator will be able to translate it into usable English. It contains a few easy to remember stories or anecdotes which make it easier for us to understand and remember the effects of certain planets when they are in certain positions around the sun.

In tamil we call this science as jothidam loosely translated as shining a light or shining a light on the future.. jothi means lamp or light depending on usage.

I will try to get simplistic documents like this for you going forward. Or i will try to write documentation explaining certain aspects of hinduism. Hopefully you can forward it to someone who can help in cultural exchange.

I would greatly appreciate any info on the australian welfare programs which directly tackle things like poverty and job security. If you would like me to contact or meet someone else in this regard, i would be happy to do that.

If you would like to know more about indian astrology i can give you links to audio recordings of indian astrology classes.

If you would like info on some specific aspect like me asking about job security programs i will try to get you that information also if i can get my mind to understand it.


Thanks
Krishnan

Hi

I found the job seeker program to be very helpful for me to not slip into penury. I am trying to see if i can advise or help the local govt in india devise such a plan for my people so we can reduce people in poverty.

Can you please see if you can send me a document detailing the overall manner of working of the job seeker program. I will try to present it to my state and central governments.

I dont know if there is some kind of secrecy or patent involved with this. But it would be great if you could help. We will try to modify it further for local fitment.

Thanks

Vamana is an allegory

Yet again I reboot into the real world.

I dont know what caused it.. maybe i did not cry when my mother died... maybe something else. but the brexpiprazole seems to have stood its ground. I am ok without medicinal change or a visit to the doctor. but still maybe I should go back to amisulpride 200 or 100 mg .. I dont know .. I was stable for five years on it.

Always I think I am fighting the all powerful americans and their all pervasive technology.. me.. an idiot who has to have his lights on in the bedroom when he goes to sleep because he is too afraid of the dark. by the way I dont know how I ended up finding a room next to a cemetery.. but as they say.. vinaasa kaalae vipareetha budhi.. so my schizophrenia times must have brought me here.

Worst part of it all... it is that I think the myths and allegories are true.. I suddenly believed that vamana a tiny brahmin who grew and grew and grew till he brought the all powerful mahabali to a full stop .. who after that regained his humility and asked the now grown vamana to place his third foot on his head. but its not true. the myths are myths..

velukudi krishnan in his upanyasams says that puranam are actually spelt pura-api-navam.. which means each time you read the puranas, you get new meaningful lessons out of it. but to me .. it is just a source of fuel to my schizophrenia.

I dont know even sanskrit, the language of the old and the wise and I act like I know everything .. why.. just because I made out that hiranyam means money and somehow connected it to the rakhshasa hiranyakasipu and how he could not be killed anywhere or by anything or by any being .. only to be killed by a mixture of everything.

Maybe I should learn sanskrit.. or maybe I am cursed to not learn it because I am already 42 and dont know about it. But I think I will go with my original plans of trying to retire at 50 and trying to go to a guru to learn sanskrit and the vedic teachings.. still.. I dont know. But what I do know .. is that..

vamana is an allegory.

Somehow i still believe astrologers might be wrong.. but astrology cannot be wrong.. or maybe i just cannot realise why bhudhan is still good for me.. maybe my uncle will buy a house or apartment for me like he is saying..

Stupid, Scared brahmin

Why is astrology harsh on me alone.. in my youth i had guru dasa and i seem to have done very well in schooling and studies.. in sani dasa i suffered.. starting from difficulty in masters degree ending in complete schizophrenia.. now bhudan dasa is starting off slightly ok inspite of the mental illness gifted by sani dasa.. if god wanted to show himself to me why did he not just do something nice.. why make me go through all this cycles thru the astrological patterns.. that too in a harsh manner for each dasa.. maybe not use the word harsh lets use strong because my guru dasa was good.. what is the point of proving to me that astrology is true and the 9 planets do dictate my life.. shouldnt this lesson be for all to see..


Why me.. i am a stupid scared brahmin.

Dear Mr Krishnan

Most human beings have some ailment. An ailment of brain , an organ of the body, is just an ailment. Not finding medication that works is hard. But they can be overcome with some difficulty

The harder ailment that almost all human beings suffer is one of wrong ideas. Those ideas make us suffer. You and I are no exceptions. We are conditioned and raised with some beliefs which we think is logical.

The Astrology is not science ! Jyothisham started as Astronomy only per my Google Guru. It was so that certain rituals can be started at sunrise even if there are clouds for example. Today;s astrology is just human imagination. Now if you believe in them you will suffer,

Why me? All human beings feel this way when tragic moment strikes, But every pain is followed by pleasure followed by pain. You have to make a decision to go beyond pain and pleasure and to the best of my understanding , that is the purpose of upanishad etc.

Time will not tell anything.. Only you can tell .. are you ready to let go all the baggage of misinformation fed by family and society? The day we realize our mind has been a waste basket of all others, that is the day we are ready to empty its contents. Peace of mind will follow even with brain disorders .. Just think about it :)

The following is my first thread under this topic.. Please familiarize yourself before proceeding.

https://www.tamilbrahmins.com/showthread.php?t=34648&highlight=

In the days since my posts on this forum, I have met a lot of people and worked on a lot of possibilities to help our vedic system and brahmin society.

Unfortunately, I have also been financially weak during this time and so did not post here. Now, after trying multiple things to help my finances, I have now decided that going back to a lowly job would be the best way to put my fiscals on track. I also got my australian PR in the interim and I am planning to go to australia to look for jobs there.

Personal aspects aside. From my experiences thus far, I have been constantly re-shaping my ideas on how to contribute to our society.

I have now become astute enough to enumerate a singular plan and a possible implementation plan to pursue. This will be my second post in this thread.

My unsent schizophrenic email to babu and astrology as a science

Thank you for your text saying that you understand my concerns.. specifically towards my father.

As for other things, you make fun as rajini, kamal, vimal when I talk about satva, rajo and tamas and other science related to our religion. I also know you do not accept fully that my saturn is looking bad for the next 5 or 6 months when my ardhastama sani will end or that I will have raja yoga for the next three years after that. But I believe this.. unlike a poster in tamilbrahmins above who consulted the americunt google and came upon the premise that astrology is not a science.

So let us try to put it in words that we all understand. It is the year 2022. the americunts have had much practise in cutting it close to snatch the match at the last moment. right? And we dont know how to get out of this .. right?? well, if not astrology, let us talk politics.

Right now the americunts are strong. this is my ardhastama sani. Next year after ardhastama sani, my raja yoga starts.. next year 2023 is going to be elections in the americunt country. If we survive the next 6 months. This issue will be the single biggest influencer in the americunt elections.. forget the tri-state influencing the elections. If we manage to play it slow on this track, there is a possibility that the right people gain power in the US elections thereby putting a full stop to this whole privacy intrusion thing. If the right people come to power, it is not only me who is home free, it is also good for the entire world. So you see.. the raja yoga starting next year is going to be true after all.

Family Vadhyaar or Family Pandit
--------------------------------------------------

In those days every family had a family pandit who advised them regularly on the puja/punaskarams that they had to do for their well being. He was also their family astrologer. You see astrology is the effect of the planets on your specific life.. It is like studying what effects the medicines have particularly on you. Although medicine is well studied and documented, a particular medicine can still have the wrong effect on you or could give you just that particular nagging side effect which kills the advantage of that medicine. To counter this is the reason we have family physicians where we have a fixed doctor to whom we go to regularly. This is because we realise that the doctor has been treating you for sometime and knows our body and family circumstances to prescribe the medicine which not only cures us but also matches our cost of living and other things.

Similarly the study of astrology also, inspite of being well studied and documented in the vedas, still needs to be applied to your singular life at any point in time. This means that you should talk to an astrologer who knows your life for sometime and has seen the effect of different planets on you during the different planetary alignments so far in your life. But with the waning interest and faith in hinduism people stopped aspiring to have a family vaadhyaar or pandit, mostly because of the hectic speed of our lives today, no one just has the time to sit down and have a chat with the family pandit. The fact that we also need to pay a few rupees to him also pinches us although it is also a fact that the pandit is usually happy with the cost of one of our dinners on a night out.

In my mothers time, there used to be our own family astrologer. I dont know what happened to him. Might be that he has passed away. This is the reason why i have to now search for astrologers who predict correctly for me. Usually a good astrologer before reading your chart will ask you about big events or turning points in your life and looks at your chart to see the effect of the planets that caused it. Just like a physician would first ask you about any major ailments you have had and the medicines you had taken. But nowadays due to everyone running after money and everything becoming a business, astrology also has become big business and the astrologers just churn out what the person wants to hear just to get the wallet out. This should not be the case.

We should somehow return to having a family pandit or a family vadhyaar just like we have a family physician. I promise you a family pandit or vadhyaar comes at a much less monetary cost when compared to a family physician.

Yes, I realise that what I have written above is pretty drab and you are possibly wondering why am I writing it now. But I thought adding this small point now after the fire and brimstone message above will hopefully hook your brain on to the concept of having a family pandit or vadhyaar. Will it work? I dont know. Lets see.

I personally am going to call the astrologer who I have been consulting since I returned to india in 2015. For all practical purposes, he is my family astrologer as he has already seen me go through a bit of ups and downs in the last 8 years. He is the one who suggested that I might end up having people from high offices taking note of me. i.e.. other than the facebook astrologer in 2018 who wanted me to start exercising because after mar 2020 my life was going to turn around and am going to have girls queueing up for me. hahahahaha.. But the facebook astrologer also asked a variety of questions about key events in my life and the timing like when did I first travel outside my country, any deaths in family, any major accidents I faced and what time, when was my first job, etc..

I am sure that after reading this post, atleast 40 percent will try to find a vadhyar who can be called their family pandit. But for how long will he be your family vadhyaar and will you persist with this relationship to gain profits over the course of your life and that of your family..?? that is the question. Even if 10 percent return to the fold of family pandits and gain from doing their karma on time like I do with my family vadhyar who is now helping me do my mothers karma, I would think my job is done.

But yes, please try to have a family pandit or vadhyaar. Even if not for your personal liking, you might actually be feeding a brahmin family who has no other profession.

Thanks and yes..

Vande Mataram.

Please choose a vadhyar closer to your life style.. ie. if you own only a two wheeler choose a vadhyar who has a two wheeler and not one with a maruti suzuki car. This is so the vadhyar can better understand your daily life and provide you with better customised advices. Remember.. even the demons or asuras have a brahmin vadhyar of their own.. his name is sukran.

I have not read and following all the posts. One thing you may want to do is to test your assumptions. You are an intellectual and have a very good reasoning mind,

1. Do vedas really have astrology sections? If so where? You will find none
2. There are veda angas (add on) that do have Jyothisham as one of the topics. But it was mainly astronomy (so rituals can be done on time regardless of outside conditions like rain etc). It has morphed into predictions. The predictive interpretation is only to the extent of neutralizing one's vasanas. Today;s astrology as practiced has no connection to the origial Jyothisham, In fact, lots of Doshas were invented in the last 50 to 60 years (like Kala Sarpa Dosha)
3. Most astrologers are not experts in Sanskrit.
4. Astrology is not science and has not been validated except via personal anecdotes.

Please go ahead with your beliefs but at least think about those beliefs to see if they are rooted on right assumptions.

Often things are cited as vedic origin when it is not so and that is a disservice to the vedas and the rishis who revealed them

I guess you are aware that Krishnan ji has his share of struggles.
Astrology might not be a science in your opinion...that is totally fine but if Astrology can help give Krishnan ji some relief,why should anyone try to convince him to not believe it?

It could help him deal with issues he faces.
The human mind just needs one point to focus on..so go slow please...a little compassion helps heal everyone.

Altruism
---------

If today was my last day on earth.. what would I do?? I will eat.. I will eat a full banana leaf meal. And sleep to dose out the high sugar shooting upto my brain from all that rice. but after that.. what will I do??

I will probably try to do something good.

This is also depicted in the western science of psychology as a triangle. The base of the triangle is food, clothing and shelter. The next step above which is shorter than the base is possibly a phone, internet connection and a television set. The next step above is something more innovative which you can buy.. but eventually the thought turns outward.. to what we can do for society. I believe that I am able to think about society and make these posts because my food and shelter is taken care of .. Now that I am taken care of, can I do something that will take care of other people and make them also think outward.. in an altruistic manner at society.

Let us see..

I have already written about the need for pension, a minimum wage and housing or possibly medical insurance for all. Yes, I had talked about a job seeker program like that in australia. But can we make this program slightly adjusted at the edges to make sure that every person has food shelter and clothing. If so.. how? Now let me think. When you think about Food shelter and clothing the first thing that comes to mind is money.. where will I get the money. But from the story of narasimma we know that hiranyam or money is the source of all evil. How do we take that out of the equation? Should govt provide for everything blindly?? If so, who will pay the govt to pay the people? It is said that death and taxes are the only sure things. So can we use taxes?? But how? arent taxes already too high and back breaking to just about everyone?? too many questions.. ok. lets change tack. Ask the basic question. How do we clear the lowest rung of the psychology ladder which is provision of food, clothing and shelter.

obviously we dont want to hand out money or hand out money to a minimum extent so that people dont simply spend the money on drugs and alcohol and sleep on the streets.

So that brings us to the question of what is the minimum money that a person requires.. In australia, the government has calculated it as 1100 to 1500 AUD per month. How did they arrive at this calculation? possibly a delegation from the ministry of external affairs of india could meet with the australian embassy people and figure out a way for knowledge transfer. But it would be ideal to see if we can figure it out ourselves.

so lets see what we have on hand.

we get ration.
we get 100 units free electricity.
I almost forgot.. the amma unavagam or amma kitchen. that was a super duper idea by Jayalalitha our erstwhile CM. But the problem is presentation and the image of 'only for poor people' made it impossible to be a leveler.
of course amma marundagam or amma medical shop is also there but what we need is overall basic medical insurance free of cost to low and middle income people.. not for people whose earnings are above 10 lakh surely.

what amount of money if given on top of this would make it sufficient for a person to live in an average household.

so what is the average rent, if we were to dole out money, we need to know that amount of rental allowance that we need to help people find proper accommodation. In an area like triplicane in metropolitan chennai, it is anywhere between 12000 to 15000 for a 2bhk. In a B centre like coimbatore, the rent is anywhere between 6000 to 8000 for a 2 bhk. But of course, the govt cannot pay for a 2bhk to every family there is, then the govt will deewal aidum.. or will go bankrupt. But can we provide for a 1 bhk rent, say 2500 rs per month for a family of 3 or 4 and with increase in number, a certain increase in assistance like 250rs per additional person in the family. If there are elders in the family, it should be encouraged that they stay as a united or joint family for better development of the younger kids or the next generation.. so some incentive for keeping the elders at home would also be ideal. say a 1000 rs more if grandma and grandpa are at home with you making the rental allowance 3500 rs per month. And this amount should only be dispersed on authentication with a rental agreement and a monthly rental receipt. This can be paid along with the ration in the ration shops after checking the ration card like the last time they paid 2500rs for pongal to every family with a ration card. Just like palm oil is an option in the ration card menu, we can have rental assistance as an option for low income group people in their ration card, this will not be available to others like my family where we are eligible only for sugar, toor dhal and palm oil and nothing else.

the next thing would be medical insurance, so the poor can also get access to medical support. It actually surprises me that in a country of billion people, where the government has a proper income tax regime and is earning money from various sources, private hospitals are able to provide better care and facilities than government hospitals. Isnt this glaring. where did the private hospitals get so much money from? Shouldnt the government be the highest earner of all the people in india? where from a private person or private group found a hospital and bring in all these expensive medical equipment?? Should the government not have more financial might than an individual tax payer or a tax paying trust or company which runs a hospital?

who has the guts to ask the above question in chennai? well, i dont even have to guts to ask why madras was renamed chennai.. but seriously.. how come there are all these expensive hospitals functioning in our cities when the average royapettah general hospital is not able to provide even better quality needles to the syringes they use on babies?


Now.. before being too harsh on the government.. lets take a step back..

this and I mean the above situation has been existing for decades now. This system has to be broken. But who will have the guts to tax the super speciality hospitals appropriately and provide better equipment to all the general hospitals across the state. will it be the current stalin or will it be annamalai in the next elections.. only time will tell. but what is clear is that we in tamilnadu are very much near to a life like in australia, melbourne. All we need is the medical system to be cleared up and the general hospitals should be the ones with better equipment and better doctors. Then we need the small help of rental allowance for the low income group like bus drivers or auto drivers, hotel labourers, market workers. etc.. We already have ration which is available year round therefore we do not need dole money to be handed out by the government like in australia. If we look at singapore, the government hospitals are the best in the country, no private hospital can beat them by as big a margin as can a private hospital in india. But yes, the ration shops quality can be improved.

Mann Ki Bhaat
----------------------

when modi first started the concept of mann ki bhaat over all india radio, i thought.. wow.. I too would have liked to do the same. I think to a certain extent it has achieved what modi wanted.. in that, every month he is in touch with the people.

But I would like to add a little bit to that. why are the people not in touch with modi like modi is in touch with the people?

Actually, all state leaders/Chief ministers can do this. ie. they can have a "talk to your state" show on Doordarshan say every first sunday at 10.00 am where the state premier will first express what has been done in the past month just like in mann ki bhaat and then he will field questions from the public of his state through a toll free number which anyone in the state can dial. Doordarshan channel because it is the government expressing what it has been doing, not a private person. Therefore the news should be released to the government run channel, not a private channel whose ratings and returns will gain inappropriately from government work by reporting on government news.

If the questions are fielded sincerely and the callers name and village are publicised so that the public can verify if the query was resolved or not, we are already on our way to developing our state. Not only this, the popularity of the state premier or chief minister or indian prime minister will also increase. This will create the image of mudhalvan movie in everyones heart and pride for the state premier all around. quite cinematic, yes?? but this can be done in real life. All that is required is a little guts on the part of the state premier or CM to face questions from the common man for an hour on live TV every month. Of course there will be crank calls and some bad apples, but if the premier is able to take it on his chin like a fighter and produce solutions to everyday problems of the common man in tamilnadu, that would be the start of something really big. We can have half hour for what progress was made in the last month between 10 and 10.30am , then, between 10.30am and 11.30am the CM can field questions from the public directly.

Can the above be done? Technically it can be done. But will the right people have the guts to ask for it and will the right people do it? This remains the question.
