How is destiny created?
Every person's luck is determined by his/her karma from previous lives and his behaviour in the present life is also governed by his previous karma. Happiness-sadness, being rich or poor, anger, pride, etc. -- all these qualities that we have are determined beforehand only. An ordinary man cannot change his destiny. It is very difficult to know about your destiny. The science of astrology is not only capable of predicting events, it also tells us about our past and future. But for this, we need a skilled astrologer at a high spiritual level.
How does destiny change?
Whatever mental, physical or vocal actions we do, they become our sanskaars and become embedded with our karma. For example, when we plant the seed of a mango tree, then we grow mangoes only. We cannot get any other fruit from sowing a mango seed. But for the mango seed to bear fruit, other external circumstances also play an important role like good soil, fertilizer and watering of plant. In this example, the seed is the cause and the other things are the variables. This shows that for any cause to become an effect, we need favorable conditions for the effect to take place. Now let us assume that we planted a good seed in good soil and gave it timely fertilizer and water. Even then we have to wait for the plant to grow into a tree and for the correct season (summer for mangoes) for the tree to bear fruit. Similarly, when we start doing some good deeds, we should be patient for them to take effect in our lives. The same thing applies to wrong actions also. If we do not create conditions for our bad karma to surface by doing good deeds always, we will not have to face the repercussions of our past bad karma. This is the key to changing our destiny.
Rules for changing destiny
1- Descipline & Faith -
It is the movement of planets in our birth charts that influences our lives to a very great extent. However, these planets can also be understood and help in remedying our lives. The planets can be appeased only by humility and love. This means that whenever we do anything to appease a planet, we should leave behind the pride caused by our knowledge and capability and do the rituals with complete devotion, faith and dedication. Only this can help in changing the effects of our prior karmas. Being honest and regular are also important for the success of any astrological remedy.
2- Realizing shortcomings of self-
To create a new future, it is very important that we shouldrealize our faults and take measures to remove them from our lives. Whatever we do, we should always be calm, peaceful and restrained. Along with this, we should always analyze our actions and take lessons from them. If we always try to justify our shortcomings then we will never be able to progress nor will we be able to create a better future. It is our bad doings in the past which have created difficult circumstances in our present life and also the tendency to do bad things in the current life. If we do not try to control such tendencies, we will just end up wrecking our future more and more. Hence, the most important thing is to understand and accept our faults.
3- Neutralizing the previous karma -
To modify the effects of any karma, we need to do actions of the same measure, force and character. Only then we can achieve simple changes. This is the principle of karmas.Hence, we should always keep in mind that remedies like mantra jaap, donation, wearing gemstones, anushthaans, etc. are also prescribed according to the extent of the problem. It is foolish to think that big problems can be resolved quickly using only one remedy like only mantra jaap or small donations. These small actions can reduce the magnitude of the problem slightly but cannot change the circumstances completely.To modify the effects of our karmas from previous lives, we need to do extremely hard work. Some times it can take us our entire lifetime to do this.
Limitations in anticipating Future -
From astrologer front-1-The extent of knowledge
2- Lack of dedication in spirtual prctice
From seeker front - 3- Inaccurate birth time
4- Lack of faith
5-The degree of the seeker's bad karmas from the past.
Why sometimes an skilled ASTROLOGER go wrong?
Many times it is not possible to clearly see into the distant future using astrology. Even very skilled astrologers are sometimes incapable of predicting the future very accurately but this does not mean that there is something missing in the science of astrology. Mostly the seeker's bad actions are so many that they cloud the knowledge and divine vision of even the best astrologers. Lack of faith also creates resistance. This makes it difficult for the astrologer to understand the planets and make calculations. If the astrologer has attained a high state of meditation, then it is possible to understand the situation to some extent and do remedies. This implies that the seeker should take astrology as a science. For example, there have been a lot of advances in the field of medicine but even then a doctor has to look very carefully at all the test reports and then apply his brain to diagnose a patient. In the same way, even in astrology the cause of a problem can be found out by detailed analysis of the planetary positions and other yogas but even astrology has its limitations.
Who can see & change the destiny ?
Only a very skilled astrologer can predict the future correctly. Only at the highest level of meditation can one time correctly. Most people's minds are very unstable and hence, we can neither see time correctly nor understand it fully. Only in the state on complete thoughtlessness during meditation, can one try to change destiny and create a new one. In a state of deep meditation, the past, the present and the future, all become one. It is only then we can see the past, present and future correctly. The mathematics and calculations of astrology can be learnt by proper training but the correct knowledge of future is only possible with deep and dedicated meditation.
How to overcome the limitations -
2- From the seeker's side, he should not lose his faith in the astrologer and should be patient, when one is assured.
3- Systematically following the primary remedies given by the astrologer, the seeker should negate his bad karma first.
4- Consult the astrologer from time to time to advance to other divine remedies. Because as the previous bad karma keeps dissolving, the astrologer can see the future more and more clearly.
