Dear Renita, Namaste.
The word Tantra means 'protecting the body' (tanu+trayi) whereas Mantra means 'protecting the mind'. The means to do this usually implies using the energy of or imbibing spiritual energy into certain objects, like gemstones, talismans, roots, herbs, clothes, etc. Even the clothes we wear have the purpose of providing some tantra to us.
Mahābharata astrological phenomena
Mahābharata, a work of Śrī Vedavyāsa, is an Ithihasa, or account of former events, on the epic battle which laid the foundation for the current era or Kali Yuga. Dating Mahābharata has been attempted by several scholars in modern times. Attempts have been made using archaeology, historical accounts, and most prominently Jyotish, i.e. astrology and astronomy. The dating of the Mahābharata is an important exercise for astrologers as the event succeeded the births of several celestial incarnations such as the five Pandavas, Śrī Balarāma and most prominently Śrī Kṛṣṇa himself.
Name & rectification
Hello every one,
I have a query. I am very much interested in Jyotish and my name is jyoti. Based on this similarity is it possible to rectify my chart?! I don't know if my DOB is Feb 20 or FEB 21 at 2 am , 1970 ,Tilda (durg,chattisghar india).
ॐ गुरवे नमः
Dear Jyoti, Namaste.
The tenth house is the Indra Bhava and therefore is the strongest house in the entire chart followed by the Prajapati bhava (Lagna). So when a Graha is placed here it can completely eclipse all the other houses. It is the Simhasana (royal/lions throne) of the chart.
हरे राम कृष्ण
Dear Somnath, Namaskar.
What you say is not the case.
The Bhāva Chakra is used in this tradition, but its usage is clearly differentiated from the use of the normal Rāśi or Bhava chakra. Note the difference in wording between Bhava (short a) and Bhāva (long ā). The former refers to the Rāśis and the latter to the houses.
