We have not seen many who have risen completely above negative emotions. (a Ramana Maharshi or a Mata Amritanandamayi won’t happen all too often!) But, we have seen people with loads of negative energy transforming into positive ones, thanks to the guidance received from within and out.
Let us list a few negative emotions: expressed/suppressed.
a) Pride, and the desire to be respectable, by any means
g) The instinct to inflict physical or emotional pain onto others/oneself or to witness it, and derive pleasure out of it.
h) Gluttony and Substance addiction
j) Obsoleteness(not enriching oneself and falling
into a monotonous subsistence.)
As we know, the reason for all these being a simple but
very deep reason: Lack of understanding about the interdependence of each and every existence in this nature(compassion and responsibility to be fulfilling to oneself and others naturally arise out of this understanding)
This book will show you that even the most respectable of the society, the rich, the beautiful and even the greatest of saints, all have the negative traits. It just so happens that the wise ones, are in control. May be with hard effort in the beginning and later, with lesser effort. This book offers an astrological angle of the negative traits and propitiations to get over them, as much as one can.
A glimpse through these pages will make us understand that we can change our destiny of future births by prayers in this birth.
A very interesting angle:
The lagna (ascendant) is you. 5th house(putra bhavam) is your progeny. The 5th position from the 5thhouse, namely the 9th house is your grandson. The 9th also happens to be your dharma! In other words, it is your dharma that goes a long way in making how your grandson is going to be! And its your grandfather’s dharma which is responsible for what you are!
Varahamihira has emphasized that the time of conception (adhana lagna) is the actual time of birth. The state of minds of the parents at this time plays a very important role in the formation of character of the offspring. In the modern world, when most children are just the offsprings of animal love, this awareness factor is very significant for the formation of a better future world.
