My Habit Of Exploring, Made Me An Astrologer: MS Kondal

AstroSage is once again back with an interview of an expert astrologer. Today, we will talk to our expert astrologer ‘MS Kondal’. He holds expertise in fields such as, career, marriage, corporate astrology, Lal Kitab, education, health, and gemstones. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s begin...

Astrologer MS Kondal’s interview is now here to enlighten you about the mysteries of astrology.

1. How did you get interested in astrology initially? What made you come into the field of astrology as a profession?
Being an engineer I had the tendency to know about how things work, what makes them running, what makes them stop and how to correct them. All this was in my blood and due to this fact, I had the feeling to understand human nature. I wanted to know how they differ even if they are twins and born on the same time. Why do they go into different professions? Why they behave differently? In nutshell, you can say my habit of exploring, made me an astrologer.
I excelled in astrology and Vastu by gaining experience from learned personalities. I gained practical experience by observations and by keeping track of my cases, which I kept on learning day and night. All this added to my experience and I started getting recognition among the masses of my city. Thereafter, internet came and it also helped. The best part was my articles in the newspapers. Also, my regular programmes on vastu and astrology on Doordarshan Tv channel and DD Punjabi proved very helpful. Most of them were live programmes which gave me recognition. Due to all these reasons, I opted for astrology as a profession.
2. What astrological system do you use and why?
I have learnt almost all the branches of astrology, because once the word astrologer is attached to your name, you should be able to predict in any way. There is a lot of difference between a Pandit and an astrologer. Gone through with the Parashar system, Krishnamurti Paddhati, numerology, Samudrik palm reading, Nadi astrology, Vastu, feng shui, Lal Kitab and many other branches of astrology and its allied subjects; I practice Lal Kitab system of astrology. I am still doing research on Lal Kitab astrology and its principles. This is a very unique system of astrology and is applicable to masses in many ways. Any lay man can do the remedies himself as they are easily affordable. Also, there are certain remedies which can be done even with household items. Therefore, there is no need to go for expensive remedies, as these remedies are very effective. However, one should know how to apply the rules of Lal Kitab astrology to find the remedy and the way to apply it. 
3. Any incident related to astrology in your life or your prediction, which created impact and that you want to share with our readers?
Actually, there are many incidents which have impact on my mind, related to astrology. But, there is an incident, which I still remember. Once a widow came to me via reference from Doordarshan centre, where she had gone to report about her child who was missing since last 45 days. There, someone told her to come to me for help. She came to me with 2-3 people and cried for her child and asked me, whether her son was alive or not. Further, she asked whether she will get her child back or not? I was moved by her tears. I prayed to the almighty and made a chart. Then, I told her the whole incident that had happened with her child during the last 45 days and how he disappeared. I also told her where he was. I gave her some remedies and told her how to use them. I assured that her child will be back on the date confirmed by me. I also told her that the moment he comes back, she must bring him to me. I still remember, it was 11 am in the morning, when my wife told me that around 40-50 people are coming to our house. She asked me for the reason, but I was also clueless. I got curious that what had happened and why they are coming to my house. I came out to meet them and saw a young boy standing in front of me. 5 people were standing with sweets in their hands; the lady who came to me few days back was also there. She told her son to get ashirwaad from me, and then she thanked me along with her neighbours in such a way that I can’t forget. I was moved by the situation, as she was a widow and he was her only son. That lady used to earn money by making chapatis on tandoor and had a rehri. Every neighbour of her thanked me and said that they are very nice people and I have helped them and therefore, god will bless me. It is a very very long story and if any one want to know, they can listen it from me. That boy told me the whole story that happened to him and how he came back. It was the same thing which I told her mother few days in advance, in the presence of her well wishers. This is the height of astrology. One feels really blessed and happy when he comes to know that almighty has chosen him for his work of kindness. So, this inspired me to help the needy people again and again in many ways. I can never forget this incident in my life.
4. What are your suggestions for budding astrologers or for those who’re interested in this subject?
What I am seeing these days is that people are becoming copy cats. They try to collect things, data, and remedies from internet and start business of astrology. This is not at all good; because without knowing the root cause, we can’t apply any remedy. If applied, it will act reverse on both the persons, i.e. the person doing the remedy and the other person who is getting it. I have seen families of astrologers being wiped out along with astrologers. So, the first thing I would like to say is to stop following such practices.
Everything in this world needs to be studied properly. After that only you should practice it. In this way, you will come across your own queries and practical experiences. Theoretical and practical are two different things and one needs to master both to become a master in any subject. So, make things practical by doing them and by understanding the theory behind. Every science is complete in itself and it’s us who sometimes take some bites from one subject and some bites from other and mix them all. Try to master one subject at a time.
5. According to you, which are the best astrology books that one should read?
According to me, people who want to learn astrology, should read Bhartiya Jyotish by Nem Chand Shastri, for studying Parashar system.
And the persons who want to learn Lal Kitab astrology, should go for all the authentic Lal Kitab books by Pandit ‘Roop Chand Joshi Ji’, the originator of Lal Kitab ideology. You will also find books printed by Pandit ‘Beni Madhav Goswami’, Lal Kitab Gutka by ‘Yograj Prabhakar’. I would suggest to read these books, as they have the same materials like the original ones. They should avoid reading guide books, as they misguide. I have seen that people are only after remedies, because they get no time to read the whole book. But, if you want to become a learned person, then you should read and practice honestly. 
6. What would you like to say to the users of AstroSage.com?
I would like to congratulate people for having such a wonderful site, which provides everything related to astrology. Here, everything is explained in a precise and detailed way. This is the site, which takes care of its customers by solving their queries and by taking their feedbacks. Customer satisfaction is the prime motto of the site and it provides honest and affordable solutions to the customers. I myself feel proud to be a part of it by giving my services to the people worldwide.
So, this was how and when astrologer MS Kondal entered into the field of astrology. We hope, this interview has inspired you to know more about astrology.

Astrology Has The Power To Affect Our Lives Directly: Usha Saxena

AstroSage is once again back with an interview of an expert astrologer. Today, we will talk to our expert astrologer ‘Usha Saxena’. The lady with expertise in countless fields, be it career, marriage, education, health, gemstones, or Muhurats. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s begin...

Astrologer Usha Saxena’s interview is now here to enlighten you about the mysteries of astrology.


Q#1: How did you get interested in astrology initially? What made you come into the field of astrology as a profession?

Astrology is the science of intangible questions of unknown and unpredictable situations. Why is it so, what will happen tomorrow - these are the common questions everybody wants to know about. As far as I am concerned - how I got interested in astrology - we have to go back a few years. "bookworm" is the word which describes me best as it suits me well (Jupiter in fifth house, Saturn in ascendant). With the age, my subjects of interest got changed and my focus shifted to philosophy, homeopathy and astrology (Jupiter in fifth house, all these subjects are indicated by Jupiter). With the time, people got to know about my interest in astrology and they started coming to me asking for advice. When my predictions proved to be accurate and number of people approaching me for solutions started increasing, it greatly boosted my level of confidence. To continue with this work smoothly, some discipline was necessary and, therefore, I took it as my profession sincerely.

Q#2: What astrological system do you use and why?

I use Vedic Astrology, as it is the base of every other astrology system.

Q#3: Any incident related to astrology in your life or your prediction, which created impact and that you want to share with our readers?

I would like to share an astrological incident related to me. Around 30 years ago, an astrologer from Agra predicted after considering my Kundli (birth chart), “Why is she not in the astrology field? She would have made a big name for herself if she was in this field.” And it’s true that my interest grew more in astrology after it and my efforts toward mastering it increased.
Talking about any of the predictions made by me, which proved right, would be vanity. However, there is an incident that can help understand the accuracy of astrology. In 2008 while on my way to America, I met a very popular woman. She continued talking to me during the whole journey. During the conversation, she mentioned that she was very upset about her son who had left home because of his girlfriend. She gave me his birth-details and after going through his Kundli after 3-4 days, I assured her that her son would come back to her as the relation between him and his girlfriend has no future. After few days, she called me and informed that the girl had died due to some health issues. I didn’t get a chance to analyze the girl's birth-chart. That lady, after some time, got me interviewed on “Voice of America” radio-station.

Q#4: What are your suggestions for budding astrologers or for those who’re interested in this subject?

A piece of advice from my side for the people who are interested in astrology or are looking forward to pursue it as a career - astrology needs very profound study and one should take it quite seriously in order to advise people correctly as it has the power to directly affect others’ lives. And, therefore, one might charge for rendering one’s services, but one should never prescribe remedies just for the sake of making more money. Do not confuse people and spread superstitions.

Q#5: According to you, which are the best astrology books that one should read?

To build a strong foundation, the best books referred are the astrological classics such as Phaladeepika and Saravali etc. These are the must-read texts. If you develop sound understanding of underlying astrological principles, you will be able to tread the right path later.

Q#6: What would you like to say to the users of AstroSage.com?

To all the AstroSage readers, I want to say that many changes and developments are taking place, several researches are being carried out in astrology with the changing time. Even more research is required. Keep a scientific view toward astrology and then accept it; do not accept is as a superstition.
वेदस्य चक्षु: किल शास्त्रवेतत प्रधानत अंगेषुयुक्ता ।
अंगेंन्यर्तोन्येरपि पूर्णमूर्ति चक्षुर्विना क: पुरुषत्वमेति ॥
Vedasya Chakshuh Kil Shastravetat Pradhanat Angeshuyukta |
Angenyartonyerapi Purnamurti Chakshurvina Kah Purushatwameti ||
So, this was how and when astrologer Usha Saxena entered into the field of astrology. We hope, this interview has inspired you to know more about astrology.

Vedic Remedies Evaded My Unbearable Pain: Nitin Data

AstroSage now presents interviews of expert astrologers. Now, you will get to know how and why these experts came into the field of astrology and what inspires them. Let’s begin the interview with vedic astrology and vastu expert ‘Nitin Datta’. 

Astrologer Nitin Datta’s Interview

How did you get interested in astrology initially? What made you come into the field of astrology as a profession?

I am a first generation astrologer and I do not have any lineage in the field of astrology. Planets and their movement have always fascinated me. I am a religious minded person and certain real life situations directed me toward the field of astrology.

It is always very agonizing if someone is going through a painful situation and there is no explanation to the cause of the situation. I did face some odd and mentally agonizing situations myself and wanted to understand what was actually wrong. Astrology gave some wonderful answers to my problems and the pain gradually diminished. 

I believe that when an individual understands the cause of a problem, then half of the problem is already solved. The rest half is taken care off by attempting certain unique remedies.

What astrological system do you use and why?

I follow the Vedic system of astrology as propounded by Maharishi Parashar. I think that it is the most comprehensive system of astrology and has been narrated in a very simple language. The principles are universal in nature and there is always some scope to customize them according to modern times. The Rajayogas and Vimshottari Mahadasha system are well known concepts among the astrologer’s fraternity and lay a very powerful foundation for any budding astrologer.

Any incident related to astrology in your life or your prediction, which created impact and that you want to share with our readers?

By the time I realized that life was turning troublesome for me, it was late to act and react. Almost everything was slipping out of my hands and there was a sense of helplessness. At the age of 27, it was clear to me that I was under a heavy influence of Sade Sati. It was always under my notice that I was experiencing Sade Sati, but it was merely an idea before I actually entered the field of astrology.

It became easy for me to understand all the events, episode by episode. It was even clear that what could be the probable future events. I was prepared to face all the odd situations and welcomed them all. With a blend of Lal Kitab remedies and Vedic remedies, I was able to evade the unbearable pain caused by the ill effects of Sade sati.

I predicted a series of short term journeys for me and my mother during the year 2010-11. Almost all of them came true. I predicted purchase of a new vehicle by a known person and it turned true. In 2010, I predicted my friend winning a lucky draw and it also turned out true. 

There have been many occasions since then which motivated me to move ahead in the field of astrology.

What are your suggestions for budding astrologers or for those who’re interested in this subject?

No one can turn into an astrologer if he/she is not religious. Remember that the science of Astrology is a gift from our great sages and saints who dedicated their lives for this science. Pick up any classical literature on astrology and you’ll find propitiation to the almighty by the author and obeisance to the spiritual master.

You can swallow but not digest astrology, if you are an atheist.

According to you, which are the best astrology books that one should read?

Begin with the books dealing in basic concepts of astrology like, houses/bhavas, delineation of a horoscope, Ayanamsa, Sayana and Nirayana systems and basic principles of interpretation of a horoscope etc. Books written by Dr. Radhakrishna Shrimali are a masterpiece in dealing with the varied concepts of astrology. Acharya Shri S.Ganesh is a leading authority in the field of astrology and his book “Ganesh Hora Shastra” on Bhava Analysis is an excellent book to understand the fundamentals and advanced concepts of astrology.

What would you like to say to the users of AstroSage.com?

Dear users, AstroSage.com is a beacon of hope for understanding and approaching astrology. It has been a privilege for me to be a part of this website. I appreciate and wish all the best to Mr. Punit Pandey for this wonderful creation.
