How Latta dosha is formed


Astrologers and guardians of the bride and groom see whether the day of the marriage is free from any affliction of any dosha and other obstacles. Latta dosha is such a condition which is considered malefic for marriage. latta means leg, which means if a planet kicks a nakshatra stationed in the marriage muhurat then latta dosha is afflicted. According to astrology a planet situated in a nakshatra if strikes a nakshatra before or after forms latta dosha. Lets see how a planet strikes a nakshatra. Sun situated in a nakshatra strikes the 12th nakshatra ahead of it. Mars kicks the 3rd nakshatra ahead of it, Jupiter and Saturn hit the 6th and 8th nakshatra in front of them respectively. Besides these planets there are some planets which hit back nakshatra. The full Moon strikes the 22nd nakshatra placed at its back. Mercury kicks the 7th nakshatra and Venus kicks the 5th nakshatra located at the back side. Rahu strikes the 9th nakshatra stationed at its back. Basically latta dosha is inauspicious but it is dangerous if it is made by the malefic planet. In this situation marriage should not be fixed. For example, Jupiter in the kritika nakshatra is kicking the 6th nakshatra ahead i.e. pushya, and if Venus in the kritika is hitting the 5th nakshatra i.e. uttrabhadrapada located at the back side. As latta dosha is afflicted in these cases marriage should not be fixed.

CURSES AND REMEDIES IN VEDIC ASTROLOGY SJC METHOD

A Curse refers to prayer or invocation for harm or injury upon one. They do not appear by themselves but are always provoked by human being, Rishi or Deva with high atmabala. This is always involving emotions (anger-Mars; sorrow-Shani; shock-Rahu) therefore graha drsti is analysed among types of dristis. Curse is burden on the Atma be it jivatma or Paramatma (like Sri Rama). The sin indicated by Shani is the source of curse. Whichever Lagna is rising papa is always indicated by the bhavas lorded by Shani. When they are additional doshas like Sankranti or Tithi dosha (like amavasya when Tara was raped by Chandra where Kali Mata lays curse on this tithi and woman born here suffer rape and loss of purity) then the remedy for curse will also cure those aspects afflicted by panchanga-dosha.
YOGA

Curse is defined by planet or sign being influenced by at least two malefics by yuti or graha dristi.Sanjayji advises to add ashtangata and papakartari. It is very important part of chart reading and is analysed after looking at panchanga and yogas like Kalamrta,

Kalasarpa or Grahamalika Yoga. We always try to remedy the yoga which gives the worst experience. More malefics aspecting planet makes worst emotion associated. If the curse is present in third, sixth, ninth or eleventh from Arudhapada the native by own action can increase the effect of curse and the advise is to stay away from himsa/vedha and any other form of doing harm to others. For example if curse is in eleventh house then native is lurred by good opportunity and after feeding that direction with energy the curse starts. Jupiter afflicted cause the curse of sage, Brahmin, priests or scholar, Mercury indicates ones friends, relatives or uncle; Shukra-saapa (Venus) shows the spouse as the author and Chandra/Surya shows parents or motherly/fatherly figures. Brhat Parasara Hora Sastra also provides information about the curse of serpents (Rahu).
MORE THAN ONE CURSE IN THE CHART

First we should pay attention to curses in dusthana because it shows bad intention in past life and association with tamas guna (Shani being karaka bhava for dusthana) and when benefic is strong then it shows full awarness (awakening state/Jagraadi in avastha scheme). The strength of curse depends also on state of malefics; if the aspecting malefic is vakri remedies will not work and native must experience whole periods (moola dasa) in challenges similar to those provoked by the native in the past life(s). Shadbala also indicates the intensity of curse and if papa-kartari is present on the bhava of the curse then its very serious one. On the other side Jupiter aspects the dosha/curse then the remedy will be available and potent. Involvment of Atmakaraka and eigth house ins neccessary as that confirms nija dosha (karmik baggage) from the past life (8th house). The final confirmation comes from Shastyamsa. Ishta Devata yuti the curse will force one to remember the God as the lesson of the course. If still in doubt which one of the curse will be most affecting we should open Shastyaamsa and judge most afflicted planets using all standart rules. There will be only one active curse in the chart, so the proper analysis of the horoscope is important to arrive at the proper remedy. Arudhas in the signs of the Moola Dasa graha will show the source of suffering during the period. Shatrupada (a6) involved threatens with legal cases. The last period (1/3) of the malefic graha will be the worst and opposite for the benefic. Order is as follows: First we should pay attention to dusthana curses, then for most afflicted ones and then for the most benefic being cursed. Fifth lord is always the most benefic planet in the chart. Sometimes the curse can come from current life and that will be visible in the pra?na as advised by Hari Hara in Pra?na Marga. If the ninth lord is involved the curse comes from past life. Personal suffering is there if Lagnesha (lord of Lagna) or Atmakaraka is involved. Eight lord yuti shows ailments as the results, whilst tenth house shows financial issues (Kubera house) and humiliation (sthana of Amala yoga).
EFFECT OF CURSE

Areas afflicted will be shown by most afflicting malefics. Here we should pay attention to natural maleficiency and also the yoga. If malefic is lording two signs then the one with planet will be the source of greater challenge/suffering. We use also naisargika chakra (natural zodiac) to provide informations about effect of curse and based on that we know that Shukra curse gives problems with finances and relationships, whilst Guru?aapa is bad for father, studies and spending money (meena twelfth house). Cursed Sun

is also known as Pitri dosha and affects progeny. Jupiter curse makes one wander as the dhi is failing (similar to weak Lagnadhipati in seventh house Brhat Parasara Hora Sastra). Budha curse blocks one progres and learning. Lagnesh being cursed makes one prone to commit mistakes. Arudhas yuti Ketu will show area suffering from those mistakes. The Bhava lorded by curse suffers a lot due to effect of the curse. If its Lagna then for no appareant reason one is attacked and can suffer from bad reputation, second house can destroy family and makes food polluted etc. Curses present in Chara Rasis (movable signs) are more active abroad, opposite for fixed signs. The cursed planet should be analysed in Varga charts to give auspicious advise for different areas of life. Curses which involves Upapada and 2nd lord from it will affect private life and relationships. Position of Shukra from afflicting grahas will show the type of challenges that are waiting to be experienced.
TIMING

Timing of curse can be done by using Moola, Narayana or Vimshottari Dasa. For moola dasa we look at exact planets involved in curse (cursers and cursed). Sri Rama was banished fom kingdom for period of the Moola dasa of Shani (14 years). Sri Rama established Rame?vara Shiva Linga and offered prayers to Lord Shiva who is pratyadi Devata of Sun and the forgiveness has come. Based on that name Rama is enough to remove all curses and sins (ref. Sanjay Rath writings). For Narayana dasa we examine first, eight and tenth from the Dasa Rasi. For Vimshottari Dasa we look at dispositor of curse.
REMEDY

The remedy lies in lord of the sign where the curse is posited or the bhava karaka for this rasi. First we should pay attention to the lord and if its well-placed then the remedy lies in Guru-roopa of that lord. The list is as follows: Sun Dakshinamoorti Moon Mahavidya Mars Hanuman Budha Vyasa/Dattatreya Jupiter Brhasapti Venus Bhrgu Shani Various Gurus (parampara mantra) Rahu Patanjali Ketu Vedamurti

If the lord of the sign/bhava is giving the remedy then somebody will give information or directly help the native. Karaka means solving the issue even without the knowledge of the native. By knowing the yoga of these planet we know how the curse can end/what we must do to avoid the disaster. Dasa Rasi aspected by remedy-planet (bhava karaka or dispositor) or Moola dasa of the same will indicate the improvement and chance to solve the problem with remedies. If both lord and karaka bhava of the cursing house are badly placed then curse is very hard to remedy. Similary if the cursed planet is in fixed sign in Rasi (own decisions) or Navamsa (blessings/mantra). If both dispositor of the curse and bhava karaka of the curse are badly placed (per the rules explained above) the Devata of Bhava should be propiated. Lagna Gayatri Fourth house Parvati/Mahavidya Seventh house Lakshmi Tenth house Saraswati Rest of the houses depends on the tattva/element of the Karaka. Jupiter is the karaka for the second, fifth, ninth and eleventh Vishnu (lord of Akasha/Air Tattva is recommended). Third house is ruled by Agni/Fire tattva and Prajapati mantra will form the remedy. For the sixth, eight and the twelfth, the karaka is Shani (Vayu/Air tattva) and Shiva mantra is the upaya. Alternatively for bhava devata we also use Mahavidya of the cursed graha as the remedy, same for affliction given by three malefics. Other Rules Additionaly if Sun is afflicted remedy comes from Jupiter and vice versa (Rahu grast divaakaro sadrisham). For Shukra saapa worship of Sri Ganesha is advised. Vishnu removes all curses related to Budha. Sanjay Rath: All curses, no matter however strong and powerful are removed by worshipping Sri Jagannatha in His Bala Gopala Vesha. He will pull down the curse like uprooting the Arjuna trees and frees the Atmas like those of the trapped/cursed Yaksha in the Arjuna tree. The Mantra for worshipping Him in this Vesha is KLEEM KRISHNA KLEEM. This has to be repeated ONE LAKH times by any member of the family wishing to get rid of any curse.

Timing Curses and their Remedies

INTRODUCTION Abhipa or pa, otherwise known as a curse, is an invocation to the superior powers, in order to cause harm and bring about suffering to another person or persons, nation or lands. The person bestowing the pa or curse causes misfortune to another by evoking the Gods or supernatural elements. Consequently, the cursed person is engulfed by misery and hardship, while cursed lands are devastated by wars, strife, floods and famine. A person is instigated to curse because of extreme and intense emotions, namely, anger (Mars), sorrow (Saturn) and shock (Rhu) [2]. Such emotion ignites a person to curse, which very often leads to the denial of the basic aspects of happiness and content in life like marriage, children, family, home, money, and profession etc. of the cursed subject. Mythology of both the East and the Occident is replete with stories of curses. The s of yore were particularly adept at casting sweeping curses on all and sundry at the blink of an eye. People trembled at the name of s like Durbs, whose legendary anger provoked him to curse frequently. The Rmyaa came into existence because of Nradas curse on Viu denying him marital happiness and conjugal bliss. Vi u had to take birth as a human being in the form of the Rma avatar to fulfill Nradas curse[3]. Gautamas curse on his wife Ahaly froze her into a stone for centuries, until the divine feet of Rma relieved her of her misery. Gndhrs curse on K a destroyed the Yadu Dynasty. Dakas curse compelled the Moon to wax and wane, while anaicara was tarnished for life, as his gaze destroyed whatever it beheld, due to the deadly curse of his wife. The reason behind these curses were a variety of passionate reactions: Nradas anger at Vius obstruction of his marriage, Gautamas anger and shock at his wifes alleged infidelity with Indra, Gndhrs hatred towards K a for not stopping the Kuruketra war and thereby destroying the Kuru Dynasty, Dakas anger and sorrow for the Moons disdain towards his 26 daughters for the sake of Rohi, the sorrow of anis wife for her husbands negligence of his marital and conjugal duties in favour of a spiritual life[4]. A curse caused many a devat and to take human birth and provides the causal link in mythological narratives to karma and rebirth, thereby connecting two souls. At a more mundane plain from the ethereal beings, mortal lives are very often bound in curses, silently suffering the burden of their karma from either the past or the present life. Curses and karma therefore have a symbiotic relationship; the seed of one is often embedded in the other. Hardship and denial in ones life can be frequently rooted in a curse from the past life. Identifying curses in a horoscope thus becomes an important tool for determining the cause of sufferance in this life and their remedies if any may be documented and applied. PARARAS TENET Discussion on curses of past births is not easily found in jyotia texts, except in Bhat Parara Hor stra and Candrakal N, both of which talk about the denial of children due to various curses from the past life. Parsara has written extensively on curses from the previous birth in the chapter entitled Purvajanmapadyotandhyya of the Bhat Parara Hor stra. Basically this chapter deals with the question of childlessness or denial of children as a result of a curse from the past birth. Such a curse may have been uttered by ones parents, relatives, gurus, priests or even the Sarpas (Divine Serpents) or departed spirits, in the past life, due to some action or event that occurred at that time. Such an action or event stirred some deep passions within them of anger, sorrow or shock, thereby provoking them to wish ill of others. In the Harihar Majumdar edition[5] of the Bhat Parara, the chapter on curses commences with Prvat asking iva to explain the curses from past life which causes childlessness. iva replies by stating that the first thing one must undertake is to examine the bhva bala or the strength of all the twelve houses very carefully, following which two general principles are given by Parara for childlessness. These are as follows: 1. When Jupiter, Lagna lord, 7th lord and 5th lord are without any strength, there will be a denial of children or there will be anapatya yoga. 2. When Sun, Mars, Rhu and Saturn are posited in the 5th house in strength, while simultaneously the 5th lord and/or Jupiter are bereft of any strength there will be anapatya yoga.

Parara in his primary analysis takes into account the afflictions on the 5th house, the 5th lord and Jupiter, by Mars, Saturn and Rhu. Jupiter is included here as it is the karaka for children and the 5th house. He then takes the planet and the house associated with a particular curse. The examination of Pit pa would entail not only the condition of the 5th house and its lord and Jupiter but also the Sun and the 9th house and its lord. Similarly for the curse of the spouse, the 7th house, 7th lord and karaka Venus are examined and so on. This gives an indication that curses represent the severe affliction of a house, its lord and its karakas by the three primary malefics, Mars, Rhu and

Saturn, resulting in the eventual destruction of the house and its signification. Two aspects are highlighted, namely, the strength or bala of the houses and the planets and secondly, the affliction on the krakatva of houses and planets. Parara has identified the types of curses that one may bear from ones past life in order to experience the sorrow of childlessness in the present birth. These curses are as follows:

PRETAPA (CURSE OF THE DEPARTED SPIRITS) This occurs when the final rites have not been performed, and then the forefathers bestow a curse in their form as spirits. 1. Saturn and the Sun in the 5th, feeble, waning Moon in the 7th and Rhu and Jupiter in the lagna or the 12th house. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Fifth lord Saturn and Jupiter in the 8th and Mars in lagna.

Seventh lord in a dusthana, Moon in the 5th and Saturn and Mndi in lagna.

10. Twelfth lord in the 5th with Saturn and Venus and Jupiter in the 8th house.

These combinations of curses as given by Parara depict the annihilation of a house and its signification. Such a destruction of a house is done by the association of malefics, specifically, Mars , Saturn and Rhu by their conjunction and aspect on the house, its lord and its karaka. It is also done by the placement of the karaka and the lord in dusthnas, and their association with dusthana lords, particularly the 8th and the 12th houses and their lords, that is aamea and vyyea. One may refer back to the opening lines made by iva that is the understanding of curses is to be done by analyzing the strength of the bhva. When the bhva and its signification are destroyed, it is bereft of any strength. It is interesting to note that Parara here talks only about the association with malefics and the link with dusthnas. Apart from mentioning debilitation a few times, he has not referred to any other sources of strength. This leads one to conclude, that the malefic association of Saturn, Mars and Rhu is emphasized in the context of curses.

If one takes the principles expounded by Parara for the 5th house, one may extend them to the other houses as well. Association of these three malefic planets along with the dusthana lords with any bhva may destroy the signification of that bhva and deny the fruits of the same to the native. The table below suggests possible results of the destruction of each of the twelve bhvas by applying the principles of Parara.

CURSED PLANETS Sri Jagannath Center[6] has done extensive work on curses and has extended Pararas principles to other areas of life, such as denial of marriage, home, profession, health etc. It has also extended the concept of curses on houses as elaborated by Parara to that on planets (discussed above), as has been taught in the parampara of Puri. A curse from a past birth is depicted in the horoscope when a natural benefic or a house is afflicted by at least two of the three natural malefics, Mars, Saturn and Rhu by graha di. The reason for taking graha di instead of r di is because a curse is caused by an emotion and is the result of a desire to inflict harm and difficulties upon

another. The natural benefics are Jupiter, Moon, Venus and Mercury. The Sun is included to show Pitpa. The affliction of these planets, following Parara, portrays the following curses:

Affliction on Planets Curse Jupiter Moon Venus Mercury Sun

Name of Curse

Brahmin Brahmapa Mother Mtpa

Spouse Patn/patipa Uncle Father Mtulpa Pitpa

When any of these planets are aspected by two or more of the following grahas, Mars, Saturn and Rhu, a curse is identified. Mars depicts anger, Saturn sorrow and Rhu shock from deceit or illusion. The house owned by these planets will show the areas of suffering, while the involvement of the tmakraka in the scenario ensures that the curse will fructify and that it is complete and the torment severe. The connection of the 8th house and its lord in this yoga confirms that the curse is from a past birth, which can be re-confirmed with an examination of the aia. The involvement of the tmakraka or the lagndhipati shows that the curse will be upon the individual. Multiple curses can operate in a horoscope, of which one will be primary and will yield maximum suffering, while the secondary curses will manifest at certain specific times. The curse of the highest natural benefic, that is Jupiter, usually depicts the primary curse, or the involvement of the tmakraka, or if all three malefics are aspecting any of the natural benefics. Secondary curses do not exist independently, and once the primary curse in forgiven, the secondary curses are forgiven too. The remedy has to be done for the primary curse only, as it is the root and will remove the negatives of the other curses as well. One must also take into account other janma do as, like Amvasy, Caturda, and Sakrnti doas as the curse will afflict these doas as well. Once the curse is lifted the janma doas will be alleviated. REMEDIES Curses require remedial measures to relieve the afflicted planet. Parara has listed a set of remedies for each of the curses mentioned earlier, but it must be remembered that one must first ascertain whether the native is capable of doing the remedy. The ninth house has to be examined for this purpose, which will reveal whether the native has the bhgya or fortune to perform remedies which will remove the affliction on the planet said to be under curse. Examine the aia of the 9th lord which will give further indications of the capacity of the person to undertake remedies. Information about the correct remedy is very often not made available to the native with a curse in his chart until the curse period is over. At times, when the native is a very diligent worshipper of his ia devat, the curse may not take affect, or the suffering may be very minor. Pararas remedies are as follows: SARPAPA 1. 2. Establish a gold idol of Nga and worship him according to the rituals followed in the natives house. Cow, land, sesame and gold should be donated according to ones capacity for the expansion of ones clan.

Pararas remedies for planets under curse are as follows:

MLA DAA The tool for timing the manifestation of the curse is Mla Dasa, which is explained in detail by Sraval. This is also known as the Lagna Kendrdi Graha Daa and is a derivative of the Vimottar. The daa commences from the strongest among lagna, candra lagna and srya lagna. This is specifically mentioned by Sraval and he also quotes Satyacrya on this principle. After the daa of the kendras are complete, the daa of the pa apharas and apoklimas take place. One must be careful in choosing the planet which will deliver the curse, which is usually the most malefic planet involved in the curse. Observe if a malefic is involved in multiple curses, then it is that planet which will manifest the curses. ILLUSTRATIONS 1. r Rmacandra of Ayodhy

Rmas chart shows Brahma, Mt and Pit pas, of which the Brahma pa is the primary curse. This is the curse of Nrada on Viu, prophesying the denial of marital bliss and conjugal life. Saturn and Mars aspect both Jupiter and Moon, while all three malefics, Saturn, Mars and Rhu aspect the Sun. Saturn is in the 4th house and Mars in the 7th in maraa karaka sthna. Saturn also lords the 7th house, signifying that the curse would affect domestic and marital life. Saturn gave him sorrow where his home and marriage was concerned and denied him happiness. His wife, St was kidnapped by Rvaa, where she suffered at the hands of the rk asas. This period of separation and pain was followed by moments of great test when he had to ask St to take the tests of fire to pr ove her purity in front of the world. The phase of separation continues, when she finally left hi and stayed in the forest upon their return to Ayodhy. She did not even inform Rma about the birth of their children, and the boys grew up to battle their fa ther. The curse was uttered by his step mother and it banished him to the forests for 14 years bereft of all his possessions. The curse on the exalted Sun in the 10th house, denied him his kingdom for those years. The 6th house is also under affliction with the presence of Rhu, showing the existence of significant enemies, in the form of rk asas. While in exile, Rma established and worshipped a jyotirlinga at Rmevaram (Exalted Sun in Rhu). He also worshipped the Devi in the form of Durgatinin and Cmu (Moon as aspected by Mars). He was moreover a great worshipper of his guru, without whose blessings he never undertook anything. Jupiter, Moon and Sun and were propitiated. Venus is exalted in the 9th house, with the aspect of the 9th lord Jupiter from lagna, which is not only in exaltation but conjoined lagna lord Moon in a perfect Gajakear Jupiter, Moon and Sun and were propitiated. Venus is exalted in the 9th house, with the aspect of the 9th lord Jupiter from lagna, which is not only in exaltation but conjoined lagna lord Moon in a perfect Gajakear Yoga. 2. r Caitanya Mahprabhu

The Moon has graha di from Saturn, Mars and Rhu and is also eclipsed, signifying Mt pa. Mars is the AK and the 8th lord Jupiter is aspecting the Moon, fulfilling all conditions for a complete curse. So the Moon has to be propitiated. The ninth house has benefic influences with the presence of Venus and Jupiters aspect from Dhanu. Moreover, the 9th lord, which is also the AK, is exalted and aspecting the 9th house. The 9th lord also happens to be in Amta aia. The lagna lord Sun is aspecting the 5th and 9th houses by r d i. The path of mantra and worship is strongly indicated and he spread the Hare K a Mahmantra in the world, to give mukti to a millions of

souls in bandhana. Moon signifies Ka and so the mantra of Ka acted like a supreme remedy. Of course, Caitanya Mahprabhu is considered to be an aa avatar and his establishment and spread of Vai avism in the world is legendary, which also indicates propitiation of the Moon. 3. rila Prabhupda

Brahmapa is indicated in this chart, with Jupiter aspected by AK Rhu and Mars. Mars is conjunct the 8th lord Moon. Jupiter is conjunct the ninth lord Sun and Ketu in the ninth house. The conjunction of these three highly spiritual planets in the 9th house is significant. The Sun in the 9th, especially in its own sign indicates temples while the lagna lord in the 9th house shows the blessings of Vi u. Ketu, the moka karaka is the 12th lord. Prabhupda endured the curse through several dasas, including the Mla Dasa of Jupiter, Moon, Mars and Rhu. After the walking his way through the hardships of sasra, he renounced the world at the end of Saturn daa. At the age of 70, in Sun and Ketu Mla dasas, he established ISCKON, went abroad and established 108 K a temples through out the world. He spread the Mahmantra and saved many a soul entrapped in narcotics, arms and alcohol. Observe his aia in Ghor. Exalted Moon and the conjunction of Venus and exalted Mercury are particular combinations or Ka and Rdh-Ka devotion. 4. Adolf Hitler

Lagna lord, tmakraka and 8th lord Venus is retrograde in the 7th house, of which it is the karaka, aspec ted by Mars and Saturn. There is a curse both on the house and on Venus. Hitler never married, although he may have had several liaisons. The curse is so severe, the day he finally married, he committed suicide and left this world. The 9th lord Mercury is in Bhraa (depraved, fallen) aia, indicating that his bhgya for performing remedies was poor. He finally succumbed to the curse in his chart. 5. Denial of Children

Curse on the 5th and 7th houses has denied the native children, marriage, even the joys of a relationship, although she years for love and companionship. Saturn and AK Mars is in the 5th with karaka Jupiter, which is also the 8th lord, in mara a karaka sthna conjunct Rhu. The 7th house is aspected by Rhu and Saturn, with the significator Venus in maraa karaka sthna. The 9th lord which is the AK is conjunct Saturn and the aspect of Guru Ca la Yoga on the 9th house has tarnished the dharma bhva, despite the presence of Ketu and the presence of the 9th lord in itala aia. Ketu does bestow some spiritual inclinations in the native, and she took initiation, but never chose to chant her dik mantra, nor saw the need or necessity for it. Saturn is the most malefic planet as it is involved in the curses of both the houses, and during its Mla Dasa, it delivered the curse very severely. The blows also came from gurus and teachers and in 7th house matters. 6. Mother Teresa: Denial of Marriage

Mother Teresas chart has the curse on the 7th house, with Saturn and Rhu aspecting it and the karaka Venus in the 8th house. Rhu is the AK and the 8th lord Moon is conjunct Saturn. Denial of marriage and celibacy is complete, but here blessed life as a nun celebrated as a saint can be seen from the 9th house, where the 9th lord Sun is in the 9th house conjunct 5th lord Mars, a complete yoga for worship with the union of the 5th and 9th lords. The 9th lord is in Komala aia, and she was the personification of compassion and mercy, as she spend her life dedicated in building institutions for the poor, the orphaned and the needy. Every breath was spent in caring for the destitute that she picked up from the streets of Calcutta, whether there are orphans or lepers. One can clearly observe that in the charts of saints like Mother Teresa, rila Prabhupda and Caitanya Mahprabhu, remedies have worked through their 9th houses, through their prayers and worship, which became an integral part of their lives, and the very purpose of their birth. 7. Denial of Marriage

Venus, AK and 8th lord is under curse by the conjunction of Mars and aspect of Saturn. This curse is also on the 7th lord. Consequently not only does she remain unmarried, she has suffered through her relationships, none of which come to the fruition of marriage. Venus Mla da a delivered the curse. Venus needs to be propitiated but as the curse is severe and since it is also the ubhapati and in a Kendra, she was advised to do Kamaltmik worship. This was during Mars Mla daa, which ends in 2005. Despite repeated plans to rec eive the mantra, she could not do so. The 9th lord Mars is involved in the curse and is afflicted by Saturn and in Dvgni aia. It is unlikely that she would receive the mantra in Mars Mla Dasa. On the other hand, the co -lord of the 9th house, Ketu is in Mdu aia, which also corresponds with the fact that she is a god fearing and spiritual lady. Ketu Mla Dasa will commence in July 2005; it is highly probable that she will receive the mantra then and start her remedy. This is am indication, that one cannot really avoid suffering during the curse period, except perhaps for those who have been doing their ia mantras diligently since their childhood.
