The Preparation of Diwali
The preparation of Deepawali, Festival of lights, has already started. Navratras are over and festivities related to Karvachouth, Ahoi Ashtami, Dhanteras are there around us.
This is the time for celebration and reunion of all family members. As per mythology Deepawali is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Ram, Sita and Lakshman back to Ayodhya after the vanvas of fourteen years. To remember the holy book of Ramayana, and to make the younger generation aware of our mythology Ramleela is performed at so many places. Children actively partiscipate in these activities. It also gives a great message of Burai Par Sachai Ki Vijay i.e. victory of good over evil forces.
Besides doing these celebrations Deepawali is the best festival to welcome Lakshmi Ji. This is the most auspicious occasion to thank Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha for all the peace, prosperity and blessings showered by them on us and also invite them in our home and work place for their permanent blessings. Deepawali pooja is performed with this request in mind.
The most auspicious muhurath for Deepawali pujan this year is 7:30 to 9:30 in the evening in Taurus Lagna. A separate list for all the major cities is given for your reference.
Since Deepawali is celebrated on Amavasya this is the best time to do siddhi of some of the mantras which may be very useful from time to time. Some of the Mantras for which one can do siddhi should be recited at midnight. I am mentioning few mantras which are quite effective.
Recite “Om Aing Hring Shring Kling Shree Mahalaxmyai Namah” 108 times on the rosary of lotus beads. Place Parad Vaibhav Lakshmi Chowki (with picture of Ashta Lakshmi), keep crystal Shree Yantra on it and recite “Om Vaibhav Lakshmyai Namah” .
Another mantra is “Om Shree Ashta lakshmayai Daridray Vinashani Sarv Sukh Samridhi Dehi Dehi Hreeng Om Namah” .
Recitation of Shree Sooktam is also very good.
Lighting of earthen lamps through out the night is auspicious for luck and prosperity.
The Impact of Transit of Saturn into Virgo
This year Saturn e
ntered into Virgo in transit. Leo is the sign of Sun and Saturn is the stepson of Sun. This is the reason because of which Saturn considers him his enemy and brings inauspicious results in Leo. Saturn had entered into Leo in July 2007. Before this Saturn was in Leo in transit in 1978-1980, 1948-1950 and 1919-1920. The year 1919 was year of world war. Year 1948 marked public massacre and epidemic. In 1978 emergency was declared in India and recent recession in world economy is the impact of transit of Saturn in Leo in 2008.
In the horoscope of Independent India ascendant sign is Taurus and Moon sign is Cancer. For Cancer sign the sadhesati of Saturn was on its culmination point and that is why public massacre and natural disasters were happening in India from last few years.

The Importance of Universal Energy in the Construction of Building
There are unlimited powers in our nature which regulate the process of creation, development and destruction. In Vastushastra three following powers of nature are
Gravitational Power: There is attractive power in the earth which is known as gravitational force. The quality of earth to pull heavenly bodies is known as gravitational force. Earth pulls those bodies more powerfully which are heavier. Contrary to those bodies which are lighter in weight take more time to reach towards earth. By considering the same gravitational force of earth it is determined that which specific area of land is suitable for which type of construction? Those places where soil is solid the gravitational force of earth gives strength and stability to the buildings. The building of those places where land is not solid or of those places where there is sand or mounts is not stronger and stable.
Magnetic Power: Our whole universe and the planets, nakshatras (constellations) and stars in it are connected to each other with these magnetic forces. Because of these forces only all the planets, nakshatras and earth are in motion and stay at a certain distance from each other. The magnet has two poles – northern and southern. The whole universe is in motion because of magnetic attraction and repulsion. Our body also gets affected with these magnetic waves. Our head is northern pole and feet southern. Because of this scientific reason people are advised to keep their head towards south while sleeping so that there doesn’t come any obstruction in the flow of magnetic waves and one gets sound sleep.
Solar Energy: Sun is the main source of energy to earth. Sun makes our life lively by giving us energy and light. The rays of it are always coming to one or other part of the earth. The classification of these rays in three parts is done on the basis of the angle from which these rays come to earth. The rays of morning are termed as para baingani, those of afternoon as varnakrama prakash and finally the rays of evening as raktaabh rays. The rays of morning are not very hot. These rays give vitamin D to us. The bacteria in atmosphere get destroyed with these rays. When the rays turn redder they become intolerable. This is the scientific reason because of which vastu experts say that the direction of east should be kept more open and west shouldn’t be kept much open so that these rays destroy the bacteria from the air of building in the morning so that we get positive and beneficial energy and heat for our life. Less windows are kept in west to abstain from raktaabh rays and in addition to that big trees are also planted in this direction.
