Shravana Putrada Ekadashi 2019 Vrat and Puja Rituals

Shravana Putrada Ekadashi, as the name suggests is celebrated during the month of Sawan. Ekadashi Tithi is quite dear to Lord Vishnu, which is why special prayers are offered to him on such days. This particular Ekadashi falls in the month of Shravan, and thus it is given the name, Shravan Ekadashi. It also provides the boon of bright progeny to a native and hence known as Putrada Ekadashi. The observation of the appropriate rites and rituals and fasts on this day not only fulfills the longing desires of the devotees, but also blesses those natives with good and bright children who don’t have any. The fast kept on this day helps to garner the supreme benediction of Lord Vishnu and he/she becomes eligible to attain salvation.

As per the Hindu Panchang, the Shravana Putrada Ekadashi fast is kept on the Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha during the month of Sawan.

Shravana Putrada Ekadashi Importance

Shravana Putrada Ekadashi, which is quite dear to Lord Vishnu arrives twice a year. The first round of celebrations take place in the Hindu month of Sharvan and the other one during the Posh month. In the northern part of India, the Ekadashi which falls in the month of Posh is taken into account while in the other parts of India, the Shravan Shukla Ekadashi is given more importance. This Shraavan Putrada Ekadashi is known as Pavitra Ekadashi in many places and some natives also call it Pavitrapona Ekadashi.

According to the Puranas, the righteousness obtained by keeping fast on Shravan Putrada Ekadashi is far more than the virtues received after making grain donation, gold donation, cow donation, kanyadan or taking a bath during eclipse and definitely more than what is received after performing persistent meditation, Ashwamedh Yagya and going on a pilgrimage. During Shravan Shukla Ekadashi, which arrives in the month of Sawan, one can get results which are obtained only after performing Vajpayee Yajna only by observing the fast and listening to the Vrat katha 

The Bhavishya Purana states that since Vishwadeva is the ruling lord of Ekadashi Tithi, he should also be worshipped on this day as a result of which, a native gets blessed with children, wealth, grain, cattle, vehicle and house. The reasons given above explain why the Shravan Putrada Ekadashi fast is given great importance.

It is the major source of energy in a native’s life, and helps to accomplish any task effectively. If Mars is posited strongly in your kundli, you get shielded from the malefic effects of Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu.

Planet Mars in Vedic Astrology

Mars is considered a cruel planet in Vedic Astrology, as it represents the Fire element. This planet plays an important in maintaining the free flow of life for living creatures. It is generally believed that Mars is an inauspicious planet, but the case seems completely different. It is the significator of physical energy, ego, bravery, courage and self-confidence. Unfavourable Mars makes a native stubborn, egoistic and prone to accidents, surgeries and injuries.

You can also adorn Teen Mukhi Rudraksha and Anantmool root to strengthen the planet. 

Establish Mangal Yantra to Strengthen the Position of Mars

If Mars is placed in the third, sixth, tenth and eleventh house of a native’s kundli, then that native reach the heights of success and lead the way. On the contrary, its placement in the first, fourth, seventh, eighth and twelfth house gives rise to Mangal Dosha, which can affect a native;s marital life as well as spouse. If Mars is in a combust as well as weak state in a kundli, the native acts cowardly. Support your brothers if you wish to strengthen Mars in your birth chart and be for them at every step of the way.

Nag Panchami 2019: Muhurat and Puja Rituals

Nag Panchami and Kalki Jayanti Tomorrow!! Know the importance of worshipping the Lords on this day

Nag Panchami is quite an auspicious festival celebrated during the month of Sawan. On this day, prayers are offered to all the Naag Devtas. Reverence is also paid to Lord Shiva in a special manner. Natives who are in constant troubles due to the presence of Kaal Sarp Dosh, Sarp Dosh or the malefic effects of Rahu in their respective Kundlis can gain miraculous benefits by worshipping all the Navanag(nine serpents). The great serpent, residing in the neck of Lord Shiva is also revered in a special way in the month of Sawan. Another serpent king, Sheshnag, who dedicates himself to serve Lord Vishnu is also venerated during the month of Shravan. He is known as Anant in all the three worlds. The great sage Kashyap and his wife Kadru gave birth to the Nagas or serpents. The Nagas have a deep affection for a place named Ananatnag situated in Jammu and Kashmir because it is believed that this place used to be their kingdom at a certain point of time in history. They are given great importance in Hinduism and and prayers are offered to them to get blessed with peace and prosperity. 

When is Nag Panchami 2019?

As per the Hindu Panchang, Nag Panchami is celebrated on the Shukla Paksha’s Panchami Tithi of the pious Sawan month. The serpent Lord or Sarp Devta is considered to be the ruling lord of Panchami Tithi, which is why Naag Devta is worshipped on this particular day. If you wish to know the observation date of Nag panchami 2019, then we would like to inform that this particular festival will be celebrated on Monday, 5 August, 2019. The Muhurat of Nag Panchami 2019 is mentioned below.

Nag Panchami Importance 

According to Hinduism, each and every festival has a unique significance, which makes it very efficacious. In the same vein, the festival of Nag Panchami is also given predominance for a couple of reasons, which we would like to list down. To begin with, Nag Panchami is celebrated during the month of Sawan which is quite dear to Lord Shiva. Both Lord Vishnu and Shiva live amongst serpents and the ruling lord of Panchami Tithi is Nag Devta or Serpent Lord. Thus, Nag Panchami which arrives during the month of Shravan is considered significant as rituals are conducted on this day to obtain the blessings of the Nagas. By offering prayers to the Nagas on this day, your entire family receives the benediction of Nag Devta and each and every family member can leave behind the fear of snake bites or suffering from fatal incidents due to any kind of poison. One also witnesses the inflow of peace and prosperity in the household. Coincidentally, this year i.e. in 2019, Nag Panchami will be observed on Monday which is why its commemoration becomes crucial in a substantial manner. 

Get Rid of Kaal Sarp Dosh on Nag Panchami 

On the day of Nag Panchami, a native can get rid of Kaal Sarp Dosh, Sarp Dosh and the malefic effects of Rahu present in his/her Kundli. One can visit the prominent holy sites like Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga, Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga and the other temples of Lord Shiva on this day to pacify the Kaal Sarp and Sarp Doshas present in the birth chart. Additionally, the conduction of Mahadev’s Rudrabhisek will also bring forth unlimited happiness and helps the native to gain redemption from all the sins committed by him/her. Not only this, the affliction of the cruel planets can also be customized by performing the Rudrabhishek. Plantation of Nag Shekhar plant on this day helps to wipe out the Sarp Dosh. Along with all these tasks mentioned above, a native should chant mantras to pacify Rahu, make donations and offer a pair of Nag-Nagin made of silver in a Shiva temple to eradicate the Kaal Sarp Dosha and also the afflictions of Rahu and Ketu.

Nag Panchami Puja Rituals

The pictures of serpents are drawn on the main door of the house with the help of cow dung and charcoal and then prayers are offered to them. Shortly, an oblation of milk made food items are also made in front of them and devotees ask them to bless their household with peace, happiness and good progeny. Additionally, visiting a Lord Shiva temple on this day and offering a silver made pair of nag- nagin is also considered to generate extremely beneficial results. If it is not possible to pray in the prescribed manner, then the Navnag Stotra given below should be chanted, as it is the most auspicious deed to perform on the day of Naag Panchami. 

anaṃtaṃ vāsuki śeṣa padmanābhaṃ ca kambalam।

śaḍkhapāla dhārtarāṣṭra takṣakaṃ kāliyaṃ tathā।।

etāni nava nāmāni nāgānāṃ ca mahātmanām।

sāyaṃkāle paṭhennityaṃ prātaḥ kāle viśeṣataḥ।।

tasme viṣabhayaṃ nāsti sarvatra vijayīṃ bhavet।

अनंतं वासुकि शेष पद्मनाभं च कम्बलम्।

शड्खपाल धार्तराष्ट्र तक्षकं कालियं तथा।।

एतानि नव नामानि नागानां च महात्मनाम्।

सायंकाले पठेन्नित्यं प्रातः काले विशेषतः।।

तस्मे विषभयं नास्ति सर्वत्र विजयीं भवेत्।

The recitation of this Strota is done for the Navanag (nine serpents), which are : Anant, Vasuki, Shesh, Padmanabh, Kambal, Shankhpal, Dhartarashtra, Takshak and Kaliya. Devotees wish for peace and prosperity while chanting this Stotram. The recitation must be done for at least eleven times. Some amount of donations are also made to snake charmers so that they can take proper care of the nagas. 

The Temple whose Door opens once in a Year 

We would also like to notify the readers about one such temple whose door opens once in a year. It is the temple of Lord Nagchandreshwar, which is located in the courtyard of Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga in Ujjain and Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati reside in this temple. As it has been said, the main doors of this temple get unbuckled on Nag Panchami and devotees from many far away places visit this temple to offer prayers and milk to Lord Nagchandreshwar. Beliefs state that paying a venerational visit to Lord Nagchandreshwar helps the natives to eliminate each and every kind of Dosha present in his/her birth chart. Legend also has it that Vasuki ji takes abode in this particular temple during the other days of the year, when its doors remains bolted. 

Kalki Jayanti Celebrations on the Same Day 

On the day of Nag Panchami, Kalki Jayanti will also be celebrated. This festival is devoted to celebrate the last avatar(incarnation) of all the ten avatars of Lord Vishnu. The Lord will take the form of Kalki, at the end of Kalyug -- as the world ends, he will come wielding a fiery sword on his white horse.The followers of Vishnu Ji pay visits to his temples and offer prayers to him and also to his incarnation, Kalki. On Monday, 5 August 2019, Kalki Jayanti will be celebrated on the Muhurat given below.

                                                  Kalki Jayanti Muhurat 
                      Kalki Jayanti Muhurat 
From 16:26:02  to 19:05:02 in the evening

2 Hours 39 Minutes

On the day of Kalki Jayanti, you should visit Lord Vishnu's temple and worship him five times and if this is not possible then venerate the Lord or recite the Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram with pure devotion, and then pay reverence to Vishnu ji’s Kalki incarnation.

We hope that this blog on Nag Panchami and Kalki Jyanti will prove to be insightful for you. Astrosage wishes you the best for your future!

Mercury Transit in Cancer Brings Major Life Changes!

Mercury transiting in Cancer formed a Mahayog with Sun-Mars-Venus! Know the benefits of Mercury transiting in Cancer and find out what obstacles will come in your way in this duration.

Vedic Astrology defines Mercury as a young planet naturally, which is also hailed as the “Prince” among the nine planets or Navagrahas. As a young prince gradually learns new skills during the course of time, similar is the nature of Mercury. It delivers results according to the planet it is posited with, i.e. favourable with benefic planets and vice versa. Mercury is the Karaka planet or significator of intelligence, logical power, mathematics, research, speech, communication, skin, statistics and travel. In case you wish to embark on a new project related to any of the above-mentioned sectors, your Mercury must remain strong and placed beneficially to garner desired results. 

The planet rules the North direction and Ashlesha, Jyeshta and Revati Nakshatra. It is friendly with Venus and Rahu, whereas it shares an inimical bond with the Moon. Mercury in a retrograde motion is considered a significant event as it offers major outcomes in the business and intelligence. Mercury had become retrograde some time ago, and now is becoming direct and transiting in Cancer gain.

Planet Mercury in Astrology

Mercury in a favourable position in one’s kundli is considered auspicious as well as fruitful. In such a state, the native becomes well-behaved, well-spoken and intelligent. Such a person becomes particularly successful in the field of business and shows off his/her skills whenever the opportunity arrives. On the other hand if Mercury is posited unfavourably or weak, the native tends to become intellectually slow and may suffer from skin-related diseases. Such a person doesn’t remain practical and fails to grow in business. To strengthen the placement of Mercury, astrologers recommend wearing high-quality Emerald gemstone or Char Mukhi Rudraksha or Four-Faced Rudraksha.

Among all other planets, Mercury holds an authoritative dominance, as it remains strong throughout the day or night, and delivers results throughout the period of mahadasha. It rules over air, bile and cough related illnesses. It forms the Budhaditya Yoga when placed with Sun, which makes a native well-learned and an expert. Other than this, if Mercury is placed in its exalted sign Virgo or in the Kendra houses in its own sign Gemini, it forms a Bhadra Namak Panch Mahapurush Yoga, which blesses the native with all kinds of happiness and success in life.

Conjunction of Mercury with Three Planets

During its transit in Cancer, Mercury conjuncted with Sun, Mars and Venus already posited there. Mercury remains friendly with Venus and Sun but garners inauspicious results when placed with Mars. It is important to note that both Mercury and Venus are kind in nature, but Sun and Mars come under the fire element and are conjuncting with Cancer sign (water element). Hence, planet Mercury will garner mixed results. As a result, the native may face speech defect, thereby leading to several challenges. 

Time of Transit

Mercury had entered Cancer some time ago in June 2019, but became retrograde on 8 July 2019 and entered Gemini on 30 July. After this, it became direct on 1 August and transited in Cancer again on Saturday, 3 August, 2019 around 5:44 AM in the morning.

Effects of Mercury Transit on Students

This transit of Mercury garners mixed results for students. Due to the conjunction of Venus and Sun with Mercury, the native will flourish in spiritual and practical matters. Time seems favourable for students pursuing their studies in the field of Interior Designing, Architecture, Media, Writing, Editing, and Acting. But the presence of Mars may persuade them to focus more, as they may feel distracted.

The tradition of applying Mehendi is also given a very pious status. On the day of this festival, women natives should dress up gracefully and apply makeup(shringar). Since, Mehendi or Henna is also a part of Shringar, a lady’s look remains incomplete without the application of Mehendi. It is also symbolic of a lady’s unending love for her husband.

Thus, the explanations given above states the importance of applying Mehendi on the day of Teej.
