Sadé Sati

Vrischikans have made it clap clap clap


Vrischikans, it’s over….

“Graduation” Day for Vrischikans


At last – the END of SADÉ SATI for Vrischikans!

* Worried about being under Sadé Sati? Did anyone tell you that you are doomed until the end of the dreaded period?


Before we begin talking about this topic, let’s get one thing straight –


It is your own past Karma that has shaped your present. Therefore work on making necessary course corrections now and be careful of what you think, say and do because through your thoughts, words and deeds in the present, you will be writing your own future destiny.

YOU - The Diamond

If you are on this page, it could well mean that you feel either you or someone close to you has been affected by the Sadé Sati period.  Reading this page and going through other posts on this site should prepare you for the challenging times to come and also help you learn to protect yourself from babas, swamies and other such people who make a living out of fooling gullible people and exploiting them. The basic ‘law’ is very simple – NO ONE OTHER THAN YOU CAN BALANCE YOUR KARMA. You can take advice and guidance from others who have been through similar situations but no one can do anything to wipe your past Karma. You might want to learn ways to balance your Karma which is the only way to achieve progress in the process of your Karmic evolution. 




Past and present Karma..

  • Karmic retribution. Well, it is quite understandable that past Karma could be a cause for not only the bad times that one experiences in life but also for the good times, but calling it ‘retribution’, goes against the very principle of “Cause and Effect”. The term ‘retribution’ is defined as “a punishment for a crime, especially punishment which is carried out by someone other than the official authorities.” It means that retribution is a punitive action carried out by a ‘doer’, or someone or some entity that carries out the punishment. People usually believe the ringed planet Saturn to be the one that causes troubles in their lives. The planet is blamed when jobs are lost, businesses crash, when accidents happen or even when a spouse or loved one decides to leave. Until people continue to be convinced that there is an external force causing challenging situations in life, neither can they achieve peace of mind nor can they plot a clear path towards a higher state of spiritual and Karmic evolution. Can you imagine singling out one single-celled bacteria in a remote corner of your stomach, knowing it by its first name, and causing it to suffer or die by sending a dose of anti-bacterial drug specifically aimed at it only because you want to punish it for being a part of a ‘team’ that had caused you a stomach ache some time ago? That is how far fetched imagining that planet Saturn is out to destroy your career or family is! THERE IS NOTHING CALLED KARMIC RETRIBUTION. Such absurd ideas are similar to the concept of a personal God residing in heaven, of Satan, of sin, hell, eternal damnation or of a purgatory, propounded by certain organised religions, and they stem from the lack of rational thinking and of ignorance of the timeless Advaita Vedanta and the priceless teachings of Dharmic scriptures, particularly, of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, which are absolutely scientific, rational and logical. Karma is not recorded in some ‘Divine or heavenly server’ with the planet Saturn managing the system. How ridiculous can it be to think of something like that! A person’s Karma is recorded in his or her own mind in the form of general nature, character and attitude which are called Gunas. The mind which does not have a physical form but is a particular pattern of the flow of one’s thoughts based on one’s nature, is carried by the Atman or the life force when it leaves one body at the end of a Janma and enters into a new one (SBG 15:08) It is the Gunas that cause action which either balances previous Karma or adds more to it. Based on the ‘Cause and Effect’ principle, all of us attract both ‘good’ as well as ‘bad’ into our lives. We might not do it consciously but deep within our mind, the processes of attracting and repelling are constantly taking place. The ancient system of Vedic Astrology reveals the patterns that take place in people’s lives. A person’s mind which has been conditioned to attract or repel certain aspects in their life continues to do so over a period of time until he or she is ‘woken up’ by the mounting effects of doing so. That is when self-realisation happens. The Sadé Sati is one such period. This pattern is indicated by the seven and a half year course that Saturn takes to transit through the 12th and the 2nd houses from the natal moon on one’s chart. Digging into one’s natal chart, waiting for the Sadé Sati period to end without working on oneself, logically speaking, can get no positive results. Remember, “If I continue to be what I have always been, I will continue to get what I have always got.” An idle mind can only add more negative energy to a person. It is lamentable to see educated people actually cursing planet Saturn believing that it is the planet that is causing them troubles in life, not getting them a good job or a not helping them find a good life partner! Entertaining such silly ideas in the mind can surely have one effect and that is of DELAYING the beginning of a (positive) change in your life. The first step I would suggest to people who feel that they have been affected by Sadé Sati or by any other ‘unfavourable’ planetary period would be to put everything aside, go to the ‘Bhaja Govindam’ page, read and understand the philosophy of life explained in it in such a crisp and direct manner; and then read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita (Only the translation with no detailed and also boring explanations!) followed by three of my posts given below:
  • Bhaja Govindam 
  • Srimad Bhagavad Gita 
  • Why me?
  • Bitter First, Sweet Later 
  • The Prisoner’s Dilemma 

It would be of great importance to completely remove the thought of being a victim of a ‘planet’s cruelty’, of Karmic retribution, of someone’s curse or of some witchcraft performed against you by one of your adversaries or enemies. Such a thought of victimhood promotes the swelling of ego through the feeling of entitlement and it increases self-pity to dangerous levels. The cause for both good as well as bad is within you. It normally takes some time to understand this and to actually carry out a major corrective procedure in one’s personality. If changes have still not happened in your life, it could only mean that your Gunas have not fully changed yet and not that Saturn has not given up its project to destroy you! Imagining Saturn to be a tough taskmaster is a metaphor which helps in making people comprehend the importance of self-improvement.

I know a lot of people who have been through extremely gruelling situations in the last few years of their Sadé Sati but are in fact immensely thankful for all that happened. They have offered complete Sharnaagati and have succeeded in ‘resetting’ their Karmic course.

Take a look at the Shloka 18:66 of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita: “Giving up all your ideas of righteousness or religion, take complete refuge in Me. I will liberate you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.” This Shloka means that when a person clears his or her mind of fallacious ideas of life, happiness, wealth and success; all their past negative Karma would also be wiped out. It only shows that it is never too late and that there is always a possibility to set things right.

The gratitude of the people that I talked of above for the trying period they have been going through which included, shocking downfalls, insults, loss of position and wealth, being let down or abandoned by those whom they trusted with their life, and other arduous events; is because they have now found their true Self which is nothing but sheer Divinity. 

Jai Shri Krishna”

Understanding Sadé Sati

Sadè Sati Notes

The three Margas (Paths)

 A number of Dhanu Rashians (Moonsign Sagittarius) and Makar Rashians (Moonsign Capricorn) have contacted me telling me about new difficulties that have all of a sudden cropped up in their lives.

I would like to stress on an important fact that not everyone is hit badly by SadéSati. However, it would be sensible for people under SadéSati to act in a precautious manner, and yet not give any room for pessimistic thoughts and ideas.

Of course, there must be a lot of people (who are doing well), who would tell you that Astrology, Sadé Sati, Mantras and all that philosophy stuff are nonsense.  Well, that’s what people who are happy and successful in everything would normally say. That is in one way the result of the illusion caused by the ego – or rather, the ‘I’ in a person. When things go well, they are under the impression that they created it all but the moment things begin to go wrong, even they begin to blame the stars! That’s when they realise that they were merely participants in whatever happened. People who feel they are affected by SS (Sadé Sati), will need to first understand what SS and its significance are.

Before you proceed, I would suggest that you make a firm decision right now – whether you would like to become an astrologer or if your priority would be to only choose the right direction on the great Karmic crossroad in your life that you are in right now. This is very important because in case you happen to be a pessimistic person, you should be considering getting out of here and try finding others who are in trouble, are pessimistic and most importantly those who love to say, that they are ‘victims’ of fate! Some typical clueless pessimists blame that beautiful ringed planet Saturn which can contain in its belly 700 planets the size of planet earth, and also other heavenly bodies for all the havoc in their life! They waste their time discussing Vedic Astrology and planetary movements instead of working on identifying the problem and its cause with the aim of finding a solution. It becomes a weakness for many people and also something very important for a lot of bearded and ochre robed babas and gurus, who capitalise on it, make a hell of a lot of money out of it and end up growing rich and fat.

When things suddenly start going wrong, people turn frustrated and angry about their own destiny. This causes disturbances in the mind and when the mind is not calm, people tend to take wrong decisions and commit big blunders which could have serious repercussions in the future. Such a state of mind shows on the face and it also greatly affects the aura of a person making them less attractive to people, to favourable situations, and to good opportunities……read more

Read this before you proceed:

One of the most common FAQs regarding Sadé Sati is  – ‘How do I find out if I am under Sadé Sati or not?’

Well, here is the answer. Saturn takes about 30 years to transit through the 12 Zodiac signs or the 12 houses on a natal chart. The heavy, dark and slow-moving planet takes about two and a half years to traverse through each sign. The seven and a half years that Saturn takes to transit through the 12th, 1st (the moon sign of the native) and the 2nd house (one sign after the native moon sign) is the period which is known as the ‘SADÉ SATI PERIOD’. Although the Sadé Sati period begins the day Saturn enters the 12th sign on a chart, its effects start months prior to the onset of the period. It can be compared to the development of dark and heavy Cumulonimbus clouds or Cbs that cause intermittent bolts of thunder and lightning before the beginning of a heavy downpour. Scary? Well, the Sadé Sati period is generally dreaded by most of the people that are aware of Vedic Astrology.

Everyone’s life follows a particular pattern since their childhood. Many things seem to repeat themselves very often in life. People, therefore, are waiting for that big change to happen in order to break some of the negative patterns in their lives. The Sadé Sati period is one such period which intimates those affected by it, that a big change is about to happen and that a new pattern is going to take shape very soon. Vedic Astrology tells us to regularise our life’s pattern and bring about discipline in our life.

It generally starts with a totally unexpected big jolt. This jolt shocks the native who wonders what happened to him/her all of a sudden. As a matter of fact, it was the subconscious mind that was actually longing for a complete change in life. People under Sadé Sati realise that in spite of all the efforts they put in, positive results stay elusive. This is when people begin to believe in the whole system that governs the life of each individual. They also understand that the success they had all the while until the big jolt came, was not just a result of their desire and work but most importantly, it was the result of their destiny or Karma. This is the beginning of the destruction of the ‘I’ and the ego in people. People begin to understand that egoism, egotism, arrogance, violence, harshness, etc are the biggest causes of disturbances in life. They begin to ‘mellow’ down and start looking for spiritual support. Well, this is exactly what is supposed to happen during the Sadé Sati!

People start looking into themselves to identify their own negative qualities which they feel may have ’caused’ their downfall. They calm down as a result of the realisation that there is some other force that has a bigger influence in their life. This is the beginning of modesty and humility. One learns to appreciate criticism whether constructive or otherwise.

In order to simplify this tough learning phase in our lives, our ancestors have prescribed very simple steps that those under Sadé Sati may follow. These steps help people bear the pressure caused by this period and also soften its malefic effects. Things like abstention from intoxication, from consuming meat and developing patience are after all very good for the health of the natives undergoing this phase! No one can deny that.

There are some soothing Mantras in Sanskrit which may be learned and recited regularly. This also has a kind of amazing effect on people. Pronouncing Sanskrit shlokas correctly and visualising what they mean, have a great effect on your minds, on your nervous system and on your soul.

The Shlokas that are suggested particularly for such tough periods are:

  • Vakr thunnda maha kaaya..
  • Pranamya shirasa Devam
  • Maha Mrutunjaya Mantra
  • Sarvabaada prashamanam…
  • Shani Mantra – Neelanajana samaabhaasam…
  • Aditya Hridayam
  • Narasimha Stotram- Runa vimochanam (Devata kaarya siddhyartham…) This is a Mantra to help in reducing the Karmic burden that one carries.

Many of you may find chanting of Mantras to be boring, absurd and ridiculous. Please go through this page in order to learn about the importance of Mantras.

SBG 17:03

Interpretation of the verse 17:3 :

The natal chart of a newborn baby indicates its past Karma or Prarabdha Karma and the general life pattern is predicted by astrologers based on the past Karma. Planetary positions indicate the Karma that a child is born with. So this means that every child is born with a certain destiny. Past Karma cannot be altered or manipulated, but present and future Karma can certainly be worked on. Achieving a Karmic balance is the way towards Moksha. Jivaatmas (souls) go through numerous births on their way to achieving to Moksha or salvation.  This is explained clearly by Bhagavan Shri Krishna to Arjuna just before the beginning of the Mahabharata war.


The Gita prescribes three principal paths or Margas to attaining salvation.

They are:

Bhakti Marga: The path of devotion, faith and love

Karma Marga: The path through right actions or deeds

Gnana Marga: The path through knowledge

All the three are obviously necessary out of which the Karma Marga is the ideal one to balance negative past Karma. Therefore by performing right actions as per the Dharma helps us earn more positive Karma. This also means that life in the current Janma can still be consciously controlled by the native. I have come across hundreds of people who are presently under Sadé Sati and are not affected by it at all. The one common thing that I found among almost all of them was that they were all involved in work that helped other people. Or rather, their work affected the lives of many other people and their presence on the planet was useful to others. One can easily infer from this that since they were already following the rules of Karma, they did not need another course by undergoing Sadé Sati.

A certain religious doctrine says that children have to pay for the sins of their parents! What? What kind of a God could that be? If that were to be true, what would a child ‘paying’ for the sins of its parents pray to God for? This is the problem with religions created by people. They do that with the view of controlling the minds of the masses whereas the eternal Dharma or the Sanatana Dharma is based on the Law of Karma.  

Karma is the justest and most fair justice system. You do good, you get it back. You do bad, you get that back too. There is no escape. People who understand Karma well, never hold others responsible for their difficulties. Each and every person is DIRECTLY responsible for his or her own destiny! Blaming others for bad times actually adds to Negative Karma. People say things like, ‘If only I were born in a rich family,’ or, ‘I wish I were born in a Royal family,’ and so on. But actually Jivaatmas design and create their own destiny. Each Jivaatmas takes birth in a particular Janma for a fixed amount of time with destiny. He or she is shown the way through different signs. This is explained very well in Chapter 2 of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. The scriptures of Sanatana Dharma do not impose anything on anyone. There are absolutely no rules, Dos or Don’ts. The entire process or Karmic Balance through spiritual evolution is a process which is beautifully and metaphorically explained in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. People need to simply read, understand, infer and apply the principles in their life.

Absolute Faith in Bhagavan Krishna has the great Power to soften and to a certain extent override the ill effects of Sadé Sati. This protects people from many unpleasant Karmic situations. People who go through difficulties end up as wiser and stronger people. Learning is a process that continues until one’s last breath and heartbeat. There are so many people who treat difficulties as part of some curse. They feel they are being punished. NO. There is no punishment in this system – it would be better to call it CORRECTION.

One of the Indians that I deeply admire and respect is the former President of India (Late) H.E. APJ Abdul Kalam. What was his background as a child and what did he grow up to become! He followed all the three Margas and charted his future Karma. There are very many highly inspiring ‘rags to riches’ stories that prove that present Karma influences future Karma. Everyone has a small window at their disposal which they can use to balance past Karma. I call it the 60 20 20 Karma Balance programme. When a child is born, it carries a lot of past Karma which amounts to 60% of the total Karma. The child grows up into an adult and in due course performs actions which accrue Karma. This amounts to 20% of the total Karma. We are now left with 20% and the good news is that this is a small window of Karmic Balance that is at the disposal of people. This option that people have, is the only way to clear Karma and make progress in the journey of the Aatman towards Paramaatma.

The Sadé Sati period is a great learning experience and the sufferings and miseries that come along should be treated as tough lessons that guide people to shed EGO and to choose the right path. Ego, arrogance, and other such ugly qualities actually reveal the amount of Negative Karma or Negative energy that a Jivaatma carries. Ego blocks rational thinking and it makes people ungrateful. It destroys intelligence and intellect. Ego causes excessive avarice. This is because ego, conceit and arrogance give people the feeling of being above others and hence they feel they have the right to tread over others and also snatch what belongs to others. There have been so many cases of powerful people coming down only because of their ego and pride. The adage, ‘Pride comes before a fall,’ has been proven very often to be true.

Well, let’s get back to  Sadé Sati. I call it the ‘shock and awe’ principle that governs the 1st phase of the 7.5 year Sadé Sati period.  I have seen that people usually take about 1.5 to 2 years to figure out what is happening and towards the end of the 1st phase they realise their own faults and also the most important truth that EGO has zero value. Once they realise this and stop pitying themselves, they start making realistic plans with social causes in mind. Those who attain this level of consciousness before the end of the 1st phase,  don’t have much to worry about during the remaining 5 years.  Below are two verses 3:19 and 20 verse from the Bhagavad Gita that speak about Social Responsibility.

SBG 3.19-20 CSRThere are many astrologers who talk about terrible things that according to them, will happen during the 2nd and the 3rd phase of the Sadé Sati period. They say that ‘even death can happen’. Well, death can happen any time, be it Sadé Sati or not! Instead of promoting a positive mental attitude, spreading around such fatalistic ideas is the worst thing any sane person should be doing.

The most important point that I wish to stress upon is that the FUTURE lies in our hands. Absolute faith, a 100% positive attitude, well-defined goals and social responsibility SBG5-25are the chief success Mantras.

The first phase is supposed to be the toughest part, which for Vrischikans is over.  Those who have shed their ego and vanity and have surrendered before the Lord, can now expect some relief because Shani will be away from the 12th house or the Vyaya Bhava.  The 12th house or the Vyaya Bhava is the last house of the Zodiac. This house indicates losses, debts, solitude, confinement, humiliations, etc.  But as per Vedic Astrology, the Karmic lessons will continue through the 2nd phase of Sadé Sati because Shani will be in Rashi.

A feeling of dissatisfaction will continue and one should stay away from pessimists. This site has a page with motivational and inspirational videos which you might want to watch in order to derive inspiration from people who rose to great heights despite having almost nothing to fall back upon.  It would be advisable to keep calm, think positive and never utter harsh words to anyone.  Letting go of the past is most important. Many people wrote to me gloating about their glorious lifestyle in the past that they had lost when Sadé Sati started. They need to learn that life after Sadé Sati will most likely not be the same any more. Things will be different, but also much better than before. People need to take time with themselves to try and find new avenues in life. Worrying and imagining that misery will befall upon them is, of course, a sure way of inviting new troubles in life that were not even destined for them!

Worrying is of absolutely no use and it is a sheer waste of time. Spending hours scouring the net looking for predictions is also a terrible waste of time. It would be impossible to make general predictions for people born under one Rashi. The only fact about Sadé Sati that can be generalised is that it is a time of Karmic Balance. If Sadé Sati were all that bad for all Vrischikans, how is it that Mr Narendra Modi had a landslide victory and became the Prime Minister of the largest democracy in the world, right in the middle of the first phase of his Sadé Sati ? He is a living example of a wonderful Karma Yogi who is putting his heart, life and soul into his work. His Karma Yoga will protect him and lead him to his goal destined for this Janma of his. An important example of a rich and successful Vrischikan is Melinda Gates. She was born on 15.08.1964 and she too is under Sadé Sati. One should not forget that all of us are in various stages of our own Karmic Evolution. Therefore comparing each other based on the degree of troubles, failures or success makes no sense.

Watch this video before continuing:

The Sadé Sati period, as I said above, is the time for a major course correction in life. Setting the right course for a journey of the next two to three decades would be the most ideal thing to do at the moment. In just a couple of years after the end of Sadé Sati, those who ‘suffered’ would really be thankful for all the lessons they learned during the dreaded period. This is absolutely TRUE.

People must be extremely careful and do their best to save every Penny they can keep aside and develop patience and modesty. Unnecessary spending must be totally avoided. Engaging in social service activities gets very good positive Karma. Developing high morals and self-discipline will leave a lasting impact on individuals. This will be of great use during and after Sadé Sati.

I write about being socially responsible because it is one of the most important qualities to possess.  It is the correct way to live.  Developing a strong feeling of being one with nature and the system gives us tremendous strength and courage. People who lead a life that is useful to others feel very confident and well protected by the System.

Learning to value and respect time should be one of your prime goals during this period. People undergoing a downtime could consider learning a new language or any new subject during this period. Whatever one learns during this period will be a great and valuable investment for the future.

Feeling disturbed, worried or scared are different states of mind and they can be consciously influenced and altered. For example, when our mind is clouded with fear, we try to drive such thoughts away but they keep coming back again and again and make us feel uncomfortable. The best would be to overcome such discomfort caused by an unpleasant state of mind, is to look straight into the thought that comes in the mind and take deep breaths for about three minutes and then change to fast breathing for two minutes. The result will be more than satisfying.


Most of those desperate people who communicated with me are now happy and are in tune with their Karmic flow. This shows them doors in places where there were only walls. Miracles can happen any time and people need to be ready to experience them. Miracles happen every day, every moment.

People who are affected should try to fully understand the concept of Karma and strive to achieve a perfect ‘Karmic Balance Sheet’ before the end of this Janma. It is most important to comprehend that there is no God nor planet that is trying to target and destroy you. The one and only way is to achieve a balance between negative and positive Karma.

The following powerful Shlokas are most important during the Sadé Sati period. People under Sadé Sati need to learn these Shlokas/ Mantras and recite them every day.

Those of you who are under Sadé Sati should not be delaying in learning this Mantra by heart! The first advice any Vedic Astrologer would give to a person under Sadé Sati or any other ‘Dosha’ would be to chant this Mantra. Aditya Bhagavan or The Sun is the source of all energy on earth.

But for the Sun there will be no Solar System, let alone the planets and any kind of life form on them.

I posted this on our Discussion Forum on Krishna Janmashtami day (24.08.2016)


Make a strong resolution to take complete refuge in Bhagavan Krishna on this day of Krishna Janmashtami.

Learning or being taught.

Namaste and Jai Shri Krishna.

Today is the Janmashtami (Birth on the 8th day from Full Moon) – Birthday of the Krishna as an Avatara on earth.

Krishna is the all-pervading Brahman. Following His Divine Teachings is the perfect way to a happy life and also to Karmic evolution. Sanatanis do not have some wacky commandments that they are forced to follow. This is because, the Sanatana Dharma basically guides ‘Atmans’ to evolve Karmically and hence using the faculty of intellectuality during a Janma as a human, is of utmost importance. Commandments are good only for brainwashed people whose minds have been permanently numbed in order to prevent them from thinking.

The teachings of the Sanatana Dharma are through metaphors because using examples with vivid descriptions is the best way to drive home a point. However, people tend to stop progressing intellectually and karmically, and they end their journey somewhere on the way. They either become a sycophant of some swami (who also happens to be another mortal like them) and swear to die at his feet or, by taking metaphors too seriously and by being upset with God or even with ‘innocent’ planets in the solar system!

People who are in trouble or undergoing difficult situations need to understand the fact that NOBODY, NO GOD or NO PLANET is doing anything unto them! Thinking and also believing that someone is doing bad things unto them leads to anger and a delusional way of thinking which will NEVER let the person get out of that vicious cycle of troubles and temporary solutions. It is necessary to understand that the prime cause for our situations is our own thought patterns! Or rather, it is our own mind! It is very easy for a person to counter this and say that his or her thought patterns are correct. But if that were to be the case, why are things not moving towards a better life for many people? Ego is the most toxic and harmful feature in anyone’s mind. It stops them from listening to even close and trustworthy friends and relatives have to say. Listening to what others say is actually receiving free information from another person who gathered the knowledge through his or her education, hard work and experience. Why should anyone be so naive to say NO to such priceless knowledge that comes from others for free? You don’t have to do what they say but you can at least listen, can’t you?

Isn’t it absurd and irrational to think that Saturn a planet, which can fit over 700 planets the size of the earth within itself, would be ‘spending its time’ conspiring to destroy a human being who is only temporarily existing on earth? People need to understand the deep metaphor of Sadé Sati and Shani Dasha. Vedic Astrology, the Gita and almost all Sanatani customs and traditions teach simple ways to comprehend this fundamental principle of ‘Cause and effect’, a.k.a. KARMA.

Karma is the root cause of everything. However, the good news is that since our Sanatana Dharma does not propound fatalism and eternal damnation, each and everyone can, through devotion, right thinking and right action, achieve Karmic balance and a new positive life pattern. How and why should anyone have a problem with this thought?

Accepting Krishna fully into your heart must not be compared to the kind of acceptance of leaders and prophets that other cults expect their followers to do. In the case of Sanatana Dharma, neither is there any coercion nor are there any threats of hell! Krishna teaches us something extremely profound and eternal. Understanding and ‘accepting’ Krishna is the highest and the most certain way to break a never-ending cycle of negative Karma and more negative Karma. Those who don’t follow the path of Dharma will not be tortured by ugly men in hell or sent to eternal fire. The only thing is that there will be no Karmic evolution for them until they understand Karma and correct their thought patterns. Learning or being taught are the two options Karma offers.

I have come across a lot of people who with a closed mind go through (but not read and understand) the Gita. They find that nothing has changed in their life. Of course, there won’t be any change in life until thought patterns have fully changed! Thoughts attract or repel opportunities and also people. Thoughts are responsible for future events in one’s life.

How lucky we are to be blessed with the Bhagavad Gita which has answers to all possible questions! Think of those who have bizarre stories of creation thrust into their throats. Are we not lucky? Are we not Karmically advanced? What are we waiting for?

Kill your ego, dump all ludicrous and bird-brained ideas spread by organised religions and take complete refuge in Bhagavan Krishna. He will show you the way. (SBG 18:66)

Happy birthday dearest and greatest Bhagavan Krishna!
We love you endlessly!!

Namaste Sir,

While I try to stay away from all the confusing astrological aspects of sun signs and moon signs; we all know that one of the factors that bind us all here is that many of us are of Vrischika Rashi and we are currently in the “peak” of our Sade Sati.

But this seems to be a major milestone month that warrants some attention. On October 10th Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck made it’s monumental move to Scorpio for a period of 13 months. And then on October 26th, Shani will (finally) leave Vrischika Rashi and we will officially begin the final phase of our Sade Sati. Strangely it will be more than a total of 7.5 years when Shani’s Sade Sati period for Vrishchika Rashi will end on January 23, 2020.

I truly pray to Bhagavan Krishna for relieving the pain of all my fellow Vrischika Rashians here on Tavamithram site. Under your guidance, we have found solace and have tried our best to follow the Five Pearls of “Faith”, “Gratitude”, “Knowledge & Work”, “Vision” and “Social Responsibility”.

However, as we enter the final phase of our Sade Sati this week, could you guide us on what should be our ideal state of mind?

Jai Shri Krishna

Hello Krsna Kumar,

What you have asked is one of the prime concerns of most Vrischikans who currently are in their final stage of Sadé Sati. You must have noticed that I write quite often about the seven and a half year period not being a curse but an important phase in a person’s life that helps them evolve Karmically. It is during this ‘dreaded’ period that people realise an important truth that never occurred to them earlier – They realise that all the things they thought that they had done until then, were not done by them at all! Neither the good things nor the bad things. All those things happened on their own and that the only plausible reason behind why all that happened could be their own Karma and certainly not anyone else or something that others did to or for them. The Sadé Sati is a period in life when people actually understand that EGO is nothing but an illusion and what really matters are life and consciousness which are the greatest gifts. They also realise that no one or nothing belongs to them, not even their own body. The greatest takeaway from this period is that, the Self that exists in ALL BEINGS is the same and that no one or no being is superior or inferior to another : SBG 13:28 Such a person perceives the same Supreme Bhagavan dwelling equally everywhere and he does not degrade his own spiritual well-being by mistaking his ego to be the Self like the way ignorant people do. He, therefore, reaches the highest goal.

It is really kind of you to pray for other Vrischikans to be relieved of pain. However, it would be necessary to discern between ‘mental pain’ or ‘mental suffering’ and physical pain. Physical pain is a natural defence mechanism in living beings that lets them know about an injury to their physical body in order for them to take the steps that are necessary to stop further damage to it. This mechanism protects the physical body and its parts which are perishable by nature. Whereas on the other hand, feeling emotionally hurt stems from attachment, possessiveness and ego. When we talk about mental pain, it is essential to comprehend that it is a direct result of a certain degree of vanity, some selfishness, attachment and the feeling of entitlement or that of being a ‘doer’. The Sadé Sati period usually teaches people that every moment of life is miraculous and needs to be treated with great respect and thankfulness. This is because anything can happen to anyone any time and if everything is going well, it could only be due to Divine Grace. An experienced person who has been through challenging situations in life, knows that nothing and no one belongs to them. That person who is conscious of the fact that he or she possesses nothing or no one also knows that they have nothing to lose and therefore have no fear at all. Such a person with a balanced mind is known as a ‘Stithapragnya’. He or she does not feel ‘entitled’ to things in life, is always thankful for whatever they have and always maintains a balanced state of mind.

Shree Bhagavan Krishna said: *
*SBG 2:55 One who gives up all desires of the mind, O Partha (Arjuna), and when one has a purified mind and is in a pure state of the soul, he is called a “Stithapragnya’ or a man of steady consciousness.

SBG 2:56 He who is not agitated or disturbed despite the threefold miseries, or is also not euphoric when he has comforts, and he is free from attachment, fear and anger is a sage with a steady mind.

SBG 2:57 He who is free from attachment and neither rejoices when he achieves good nor hates evil has steady wisdom and perfect knowledge.

Bhagavan Krishna is the only Truth.
SBG 9:17 I am the father of this world, the mother, the dispenser of the fruits of actions, and the grandsire. I am the Holy One to be known; the sacred monosyllable Om, and also the Rig, Yajur and the Sama Vedas.
SBG 14:27 I am the abode of Brahman, the immortal and the immutable,
of everlasting Dharma and of absolute bliss

SBG 18:55 By supreme devotion, he knows Me in truth – what and who I am.
Knowing Me thus, he enters into Me at once.

Below is a video which was made a few months ago which I had somehow missed publishing. It was unlisted. The three verses from the SBG 5:25, 12:03 and 12:04 should help people in adopting a modest, peaceful, happy, warm and gratitude-filled life especially after having borne the brunt of the Sadé Sati period.

May peace reign in the world.

Jai Shri Krishna

  5. Dear Thavamithram sir,

    I am Deepesh Agrawal, Date of Birth : 16 Nov 1982 , Time :01:00 am and Place of Birth: Indore.

    Currently I am facing lot of problem in my career due to which I am not able to concentrate on wan work.
    I read your blog and try to understand the effect of sade satti . Just want to understand the effect of sade satti on my career and when will be the career related problems will get resolve. Thanks


  6. Hello Friends,

    I am Abhishek Singh from Pune and i am here to share my experience with you all about my Sade Sati period. As i am a scorpio and it is second phase of Saturn Sade-Sati. Like you all, i was also scared that would i have to suffer a lot more as compare to my first phase of Sade Sati.

    So before sharing my experience with you all let me give you my background details. At the age of 21 i had started my career with a very good US based Software company in Pune with a very good salary package. However, I was among the few students of my college who was successful in cracking the job by its own efforts. However, I struggled a lot in my career as i was working very hard to prove my self to my seniors about my credibility but it always went vain. No one used to value my work and they used to lambast me for my efficiency. Meanwhile, when my Saturn Sade Sati phase had started in Nov 15 ,2011, Suddenly I lost my job. The day i still remember and it always keep haunting me till today. The day was April 3rd, 2012. It was like “awe” and “shock” for me. At that time i had no savings, all the small amount i saved went to deposit my loan amount from the credit card , and last i had lost my self-respect , confidence and all the loving ones who were very much close to me.

    To get me next job it took almost 110 interviews and 10 months of my life. Yes right, I had to appear for 110 interviews to get a Second job. I was jobless for 10 months and wherever i went i was always getting rejected. I felt demotivated, lost my confidence and i wasn’t able to think straight. Initially, I was not well aware about why am i suffering so much. However, I was able to get a job with a low salary package but the situation haven’t changed much. My peers always criticize about my work and once their was a chance that i was about to loose my job again.

    However, around last year on March 2014 I met Mr. Tavamitram Ji (Facebook), He cleared my concept about Sade-Sati and he also suggested me that how could i achieve any thing by improving my karma. When i learned about this and started following with true belief, You won’t believe it that in two months i got a very good opportunity from a Indian based MNC at a decent Salary package with only 10-15 attempts. I joined this company on last June 2014 everything is happening as what i was trying to achieve from the starting of my career. My peers / seniors respect me and appreciate my work a lot. They value my efforts and inputs. Even i got an increment in salary which i haven’t received from my previous employers till then. One more thing, Getting selected for this company itself a matter of prestige. As this company is very selective in hiring someone. First time in my life i was happy and i was enjoying my work. As you know that Saturn has a different plan for me. Last week i got an opportunity from a very Big US based MNC with a salary package of around 10 lakhs to work for their firm. Surprisingly, the day was Saturday.

    Friends, Saturn is like our best friend who wanted to help us from getting out of the troubles and teacher who wanted to teach us very valuable lessons in our life . Now i consider Saturday as my lucky day because all the good things that has happened is on Saturday mostly. As i do remember the words of Tavamitram ji when he told me that “Abhishek, if you could understand the importance and value of Sade Sati the second phase would be a golden period of your life.” This was his exact words and i think it is happening. Guys, I have experienced a lot more good things in this 3 years but this was my major event of my life in the second phase of Sade Sati. So i would suggest that please follows the Karma sincerely as suggested by Tavamitram Sir and believe in your self. You never know how you best friend ,ie, Saturn could surprise you.

    FYI, I am only 27 years old and I am highly grateful to Saturn who has helped me in my tough time a lot and Second my parents for believing me & supporting me and last but nor the least Tavamitram Sir who guided me to become what am i Today.

    Thank You Tavamitram Sir & Friends.


    1. Dear Abhishek,

      thank you for your message. You are a perfect example to prove that dedication and patience always bring rich rewards. (Shraddhaa aur Saboori) I am very proud of you and of your positive mental attitude. When you called me last month while I was in India, I could easily sense the sheer optimism you have in you. The positive spirit will make you stronger and it will take you places.

      I am very glad to know that you have found a great job and that you are happy. You have understood that your past Karma was the direct reason for the troubles you went through. The last 10 months have taught you very important lessons in life that will take you greater heights in your career and life. For everything there is a time and the destiny factor is something that is absolutely unexplainable.

      In my opinion, all of us are given the capacity to slightly alter our fate. The first thing that we need to do in order to activate this capacity in us is to remove fear and worry from our minds. This helps us understand that everything that happens, happens for a reason. All simple and small incidents are pieces of a much larger picture which will be revealed only when all the tiny pieces are put together in their right places.

      In one of my earlier posts, I wrote about the major disadvantages of checking out on astrological predictions on the net. First of all, they are only general predictions for the twelve moon signs. Looking into natal charts and consulting a lot of people are not only waste of time but they also kill the enthusiasm and energy in people. Instead reading motivating stories of successful people and also watching such films contribute in strengthening the minds of people.

      Your message has motivated many of the followers of this blog and they have written to me with new hope, vigour and energy.

      May Bhagavan Krishna Bless you abundantly

      Jai Shri Krishna

  14. A thought which was running in mind to share ….To the feet of Master (Forgive and correct this souls’s thoughts if the thought has any miss-leading flows)

    I was just thinking and thinking about myself and got a smile on my face suddenly because I have no past (forgotten most of them) and I have no future (because I don’t believe taking life as is and not very serious) ah! yes I have a present in which I am flowing like a water trying to maintain the purity where ever I go, what ever I do….I just thought yes……will get on to Master so that I can atleast think something worth…….and these 3 things attracted me…

    Bhakti Marga: The path of devotion, faith and love

    Karma Marga: The path through right actions or deeds

    Gnana Marga: The path through knowledge

    (to attain Mukti / salvation)

    I was wondering which Marga have I chosen? Is it Bhakti? yes my mind said yes but not fully…I have surrendered myself long back to my Guru…Nothing I own and all the ownership has been given to him of course recently may be 3 years ago when I realized nothing is in my hand and I started moving on….

    Karma Marga: Of course I do karma (deed) which reflects my thoughts and here I feel is the challenge of right and wrong and many a time I feel they are to the situation and mind to decide. But to my knowledge I have not done anything intentional wrong. Mistake would have happened and I feel that is because of lack of awareness and knowledge and it is rectified from time to time. Righteousness to my conscious mind I have never done anything wrong but executing my duties deputed or delegated by my Guru or which is my plate of meals to execute. There is no confusion about this. Expectations out of Karma….?! It was there but it’s gradually getting reduced and getting surrendered to his feet.

    Gnana Marga : This is a beautiful Garden of flowers with varieties and the beauty of Gnana is sharing and caring. Gnana / Knowledge will be multiplied when it is earned, understood, converted into deeds and shared. When we share thoughts / knowledge with others it bounce back with lots of needed clarifications and what do we do, if are the real truthful sharing souls, we will go back find the clarity and give back to the world.

    I got smile because we do many things but they all are in these three routes but we never realize and focus on that. Consciously moving and knowing what we are doing will get us more into that directions and that itself is the way to Mukti. We do not have separate heaven, we have everything here but we should realize and walk on that.

    Lots of love Master and touching your feet for blessings………


  15. My dear Roopika,

    hello. I don’t know who you are, how old you are, what you do and where you’re from. I do not know anything at all about you. But at this moment, I sincerely wish I were there with you. Standing right opposite you and embracing you into a warm hug and letting you know how proud I am of a girl like you!!

    Roopika, I have been a member of this incredible blog for a while. In fact I found it on the net the very next day that our dear Tavamithramji started it. The reason I’m telling you this is that I have yet to read a message posted here, that has tugged my heart and has brought tears to my eyes like yours has. What an amazing maturity you have! And what an impressive attitude! The astrologer you met must have indeed been a kind hearted soul, for anyone else in his place would have tried to fleece you. The advice he gave you has timeless wisdom in it. You are blessed to have been endowed with the maturity to understand it and the intelligence to weave it into the fabric of your life. This delightful philosophy of yours and your positive attitude will ensure that you emerge a winner.

    What profound words have you spoken, dear Roopika! If there’s one person on this blog that I would love to meet someday ( other than Tavamithramji of course! ), it’s you. Such an amazing grace, courage, optimism, strength and a sense of surrender your message conveys. You sound like a child – woman to me… May the good God bless you with a wonderful life. The world needs many more beautiful souls like you.

    With affection and admiration,


    1. My dear sweet lady Anitha,

      The funny thing is I am also seeking and on the way of learning and understanding “Who Am I” and you expressed it very well. Not knowing the identity of the soul and feeling it in us is the best way of getting connected. By knowing people anyone can decide and get connected but when we don’t know anything still when we get to know each other and feel in each other’s heart ..that is is real connection which is above all the boundaries and judgements. Love the way you got into my heart and touched it.

      To tell about me, I am soul very simple which has come to this earth and having lots of so called “complications” be it emotional, be it health, be it financial, be it relations, be it anything for that matter and never felt it from my heart and holding the control in me and not letting my joy go out of me in any situation. The silly reason is being, I can’t see my crying face and want to be young all the time at heart like a child.

      I have everyone around me pouring lots of love at given time I have no one around except my God. This shows me the difference between the perception and the reality. The Truth and the Lie of life. I get myself drown into my God some time and I get drowned with people many more time pulling their legs and making them laugh. I love my life and to the core of my breath. Because I trust it’s gift of my favourite God and never regret for it though I express it on situational but never felt it from the heart.

      My Dear sweet lady, Thank you so much (I know Thank you is a small word of expressing gratitude but the feeling behind it makes lot of emotional flow of respect) for motivating me and my thoughts. I say it today “me” and “my thoughts” but it is not my own. I have understood and learnt from many souls around me and each time when I feel proud they smile standing infront of me and the ego runs away. Life is a beautiful jolly ride provided we have a will to enjoy that otherwise it’s a fearful horrible journey which we keep cursing. It is very important to grab all the positive energy from the universe in whichever the form it is available and there is no limit for it. The minute you decide to be happy, you will see only things which gives you happiness that’s the simple method of leading a happy life. Make people happy and it echoes’ into our life.

      You are a great soul so you are reflecting that on others. I am simple and normal but you are seeing the difference because you are seeing yourself in me. Keep up the spirit of sharing and spreading love and peace and rest will follow. Like how we should be conscious about bad and negatives, we should be knowing what good things we have done and it gives a feel of pride and motivates to do better and better and it takes us to the higher level of egoless, selfless life.

      Thank you again for your wonderful blessings and Namaste, Let us walk together in this journey by knowing each other, by smiling and by laughing to make the world beautiful.

      Smile 🙂 


  16. Dear Roopika,

    It is very refreshing to go through your warm messages which are so full of faith and hope. I would consider you as my daughter or my sister depending on your age. You are a very wise young lady. I am not sure if you have read my other posts but I have already written about this topic. Please remember that there are no Gods nor Planets that are sitting at a table conspiring to destroy you. Everything happens as per the Divine and Universal Law. The Sanaatana Dharma You follow a wonderful philosophy and I am very happy for you.

    People following the Sanaatana Dharma have nothing to do with violence. India never started a war at least in the last 10,000 years. Peace is in our genes.

    My son for example, has a whole trove of toys but he has nothing that even distantly resembles a weapon or anything destructive.

    The basic concept that you have in mind is perfect. You may have to fine tune your thoughts and improve focus. Respecting the Divine law and following Dharma are enough to assure you of a safe and a happy life.

    There are so many ‘ex-millionaires’ who have contacted me and have spoken to me about their terrible plight. All of a sudden in the last two years, they find themselves with nothing and absolutely ruined. This clearly indicates that the ‘I’ in them never did anything. My favourite verse from the Gita is 11:33 where Bhagawan Krishna says to Arjuna , ‘(Therefore, get up and attain glory. Conquer your enemies and enjoy a prosperous kingdom. All these (warriors) have already been destroyed by Me. You are only an instrument, O Arjuna.’

    Please try to comprehend a golden rule that an amazing man called Shri Dasharatharam, spoke to me about : ‘NOTHING UNBEARABLE SHALL EVER HAPPEN:’

    Trust and faith, my dear, can move mountains.

    May God bless you and your family.

    Jai Shree Krishna


    1. Dear Master,

      Thank you very much for your time and the thoughts shared to me. And love the way you connect with souls with beautiful relationships. I am blessed to be your part of life’s journey of spreading the love and faith in any form I don’t mind. Your acceptance itself is a blessings for me. Keep me on your feet and I will be listening to you and to the beautiful souls.

      Ego is one thing which spoils our soul and gets on to pride and destroys our knowledge through emotions. So I always would love to be on ground by feeling mother earth and feel the joy of being her daughter. I don’t want to be the daughter of Sun because then I will be on the top and I may not see what’s happening around and I may not feel the tears of my mother (the earth). So let this soul be always touching the ground and say to Ego that we are nothing infront of the souls who are enlightened and have enormous knowledge and wisdom and want to scroll like a child on my way of journey.

      I shall go through all your writings gradually and will come back for clarifications if any required for my understanding. I am a bit more questioning for my own understanding and never mind when I do so.

      I will be endless many a time and don’t mind (Request to readers too).

      Touching your feet for blessings with love,


  17. Dear Master,

    Thank you for explaining about Sade Sati. An astrologer told me 2 years back that I am undergoing Sade Sati. I had mental pressure due to some disconnections and friends going away from me and leaving the job etc., etc., I just took few steps and got away from my so called comfortable life. Then was wondering what is happening with me, then met a beautiful soul (an astrologer) and asked him and

    he took a deep breath and said ” I have seen so many horoscopes in life but never seen such worse horoscope in lifetime” You have sade Sati but you are brought up with hell lot of complications, I wonder how you would be leading your life. Never seek peace outside and you will never get it, never go to find any solutions outside you will never get it and along with you have this too which has just started… Just keep yourself away from all these things and never allow them to touch you through your strong will power. Problems let them go on their own way and you maintain peace within and never focus on them and you will be the best in this world. The only way to get out of these and staying happy is not allowing them to touch you. When you are strong and peaceful internally you will never feel the toughness and will never feel you are under trouble and you will always be happy”

    I really felt proud of myself at that moment because nothing could affect my life because of my trust with my God and feel of his being with me and in my life. I always say my God that, you know everything and I accept what you give from full of heart..If you hurt me it will hurt you too so take care your child and I want to stay peace on your lap. I smiled at the astrologer and said I follow and he said do not go for any Homa etc., just chant few Mantras and they will keep you blessed. I really appreciate him for bosting my confidence and the difference from my childhood to now is…….Now I know what I am undergoing and how to stay untouched of the issues and I have more confidence of my Father (God) being with me.

    I really felt good when I read your article because you were the confidence filler like the astrologer whom I met. Thank you Master for giving me an opportunity to let me share my thoughts. Lots of smiles to all the souls who are having this fear…Get out of fear, forget you are having the problem and you will be able to downed into Present and see the light.

    1. Namaste Sister,

      Thank you for stopping by. Your message is touching indeed. You follow a beautiful philosophy and you will always be protected. I had written earlier that our souls are always growing perfect in order to attain Paramatma and during this process, one has to undergo various kinds of experiences through many Janmas.

      When one surrenders totally to Bhagawan Krishna, he or she has a ring of fire or rather a kind of fire wall around. It also could be compared to a bullet proof vest. Nothing at all will ever touch such a person of faith. Dangers might whizz past, but the person remains unscathed. Ultimately it is the faith that works by bringing the inner strength out. Following Dharma and being respectful and thankful to Nature protects people at all times.

      Mantras are a scientific way to activate the inner energy and the feeling of being one with Nature. This strengthens one’s awe for Nature and the belief in non-violence. I have written a post on fearlessness in my blog which may help you.

      May God Bless you and your family

      Jai Shree Krishna


      1. Dear Master,

        Thank you for your warm welcome and the words of pearls. They are so true and powerful.

        Our life is to live and not die..our life is to experience and not to reject..our life is to learn and to understand the mysteries. Our life is a Gift by God and he has sent us with a purpose of serving people around us irrespective of relationships. If we feel sick of this beauriful life and if we start rejecting and hating then it is like insulting God and his creation.

        So I always believe in leading the life happily as much as possible by executing the assigned duties and responsibilities to make the creator feel proud of his creation and to make him smile.

        Master..what else can we do to our creator? Its only loving him by living this life happily with goodness and righteousness isn’t it Master.

        I will be little excited and non stop to talk about him and the life given through his blessings. I shall read through your post and try to add up to my life..

        Thanks for all your blessings,
        Touching your feet for blessings…because the blessings of elders and wishes of good souls will always get us in right track…


        1. Dear Master,

          I also understand that God Shani is the God of Justice and he has never done any injustice to anyone and treated everone it Deva’s, be it Asura’s (demon) or human. So when we are on right path and leading the life with righteousness he will bless us instead of troubling. So its all told in Karma too that the more we follow goodness the more we are closer to God. So if something negative happens then we should undersrand that it is we who are the reasons by our actions and Neither Shani nor our God.

          Please correct me dear Master if anything wrong in my understanding..

          Touching your feet …


  18. Hi Guru ji,


    My husband and me both are going thru Sade sati. Both are Scorpio sign, Jyesta-1 and anuradha-1 respectively.

    We settled in USA, bought a home recently.I am very positive person, but last few years when ever I get the thought of Sadi Sati dasa, I am getting very scared. I am trying to see good side of Sade sati (as you said Sade sati will teach you true meaning of life). These days I am having some unnecessary fears in life. We settled in USA, bought a home recently. We have two daughters 5 & 2 years old. Can you please tell us how our Sade sati will affect our lives. Any remedies we should do.

    I will send mine and my husband details in email. Thank you very much for your time.



        1. Thank you for the quick response, Tavamithram ji. What is the best time to talk to you over Skype? Please let me know. I sent my details to your email Id.


          1. Dear Sir,
            It was very nice talking to you. I felt so good after talking to you. You are such a wonderful human being , you are helping so many people’s lives by enlightening their inner strength. I am truly lucky to find your blog. As you said, I will read all the posts/thoughts in your blog and try to educate myself with Krishna tatwa. I will get back to you when you have free time.

            Thank you so much for giving your valuable time.

  20. Dear Brother,

    Thank you so much for this post, for the reassurance. Reading your post has allayed my fears for this year of sadesati. However, I cant help worrying about the next 2 phases. I have my share of problems as well – health, relationship with father, work, debt – and I dont know how I will deal with these going in to the future. I am also confused about my current relationship. I was divorced 5 years ago from a guy my family picked, and I am currently seeing somebody who I feel is wonderful, but I have no support from my family. Am I making a mistake being with him? He has been caring and supportive through all my problems, especially my recent health issues.

    Can you help please?

      1. Guruji,
        My DOB is 19 april 1968, I am Dhanu Rashi with Purvashada nakshtra. I have just changed jobs and knowing that I will start sade sati in Nov is making me very worried. Do you suggest any remedies, please?


  21. Dear Tathagata,

    Heyy! First of all, relax! Take ten deep breaths before you read any further… Let me tell you, I too am under the influence of Sade Saathi. I too had been running from one astrologer to another spending huge sums of money on homas and poojas until I found Tavamithram Sarvada. Of course, most of them exaggerate things, otherwise, come on, how in the world would they earn a great living??!! 🙂

    First of all, I request you to go through the write up on ‘Karmic Diagnosis’, on the ‘Thoughts’ page, written by Tavamithram ji. It gives a whole new perspective to astrology and also gives us a sensible explanation for all the things we go through in life. Tathagata, sometimes life’s difficulties can seem overwhelming but please don’t give up. Get rid of the negative thoughts from your mind, right here, right now. The more you dwell on them, the more likely are you to attract them into your life.

    If you have found your way to this blog and to Tavamithram ji, I assure you your problems will most certainly be solved. Because finally, the solution lies in the attitude with which you fight your battles. And trust me, I know that Tavamithramji has helped more than a thousand people change their’s thus transforming their lives.

    Tathagata, no matter what happens, please keep faith that everything’s going to be alright. You are going to be okay. Stay strong. NEVER give up. For like I read somewhere, God gives His hardest battles to his toughest soldiers! Cheers!! 🙂

    With regards,

    Impressed after reading your articles and responses

    My date of birth – 27/03/1975 Time 12:50 pm (afternoon)
    Gender – Male

    I have fallen from grace during the last 6 years.From being one of the star and super performers I have become a liability.

    At nearing 40 I am absolutely directionless and I really dont know steps to be taken and seem to have arrived at a dead end.

    Its reallly tiring and sometimes just want to run away – am having severe withdrawal symptoms

    Can you help me,Sir

  27. Dear Tavamithram!!! Blessings to You for your Heart extension to us all for this work of yours!! I believe, not sure, that in Nov I will enter the second phase of the sade sati! They are calling me the “Erin Brocovich of Mergers and Acquisitions”…..for five years I have been in the courts, largely without attornies, and researching….I discovered a 150 plus Million dollar fraud against myself and 40 others, our retirement securities stolen, I lost in Court right at the beginning of the first phase and am now in appeal, the other folks have taken my work and hired three law firms

    taking care of mother past 2 years,,,slow decline

    mind set is to accept nothingness and to work to have no expectations whatsoever, the law firms represent others, they wont represent me, as I have lost already

    concerned re: being proactive for my health as I’ve always had good health, I guess I just better take better care, no?

    THANK YOU!!!

  29. Hello my DOB is 13/6/1965 at 0.58 am in Mumbai (India). I am going through the wrose phase of life both personally & work related. Can you please help, Any chance of the problems will come to an end soon?


  30. Dear Sir,
    I have started chanting mantras which you have asked me to. Thank you for helping my husband. Your email boosted his confidence and he too chants the mantras which you have asked to do. To us you are truly God sent.
    You also mentioned about Saturn Dasha in my chart. What does it mean? Please explain the benefits and side effects on one’s life of Saturn dasha.

    Jai Shree Krishna



    1. Namaskar my Sister Kalpanaji.

      I am truly glad to know that you and your husband are feeling much better now. Please remember the two magical words of Shirdi Sai Baba – ‘Shraddha aur Saboori’ . Patience is a great virtue. It does not mean doing NOTHING and waiting for something to happen but doing EVERYTHING and waiting for something to happen. Above all, there must be ABSOLUTE FAITH.

      We have to be specific in what we wish for and visualise it in our mind before connecting with the eternal Power. There need not be any logic in what we ask for, but there must be total faith and it must be according to Dharma. My own life which has been full of miracles, is proof enough to justify what I just now said. Unshakable Faith in my God as well as in myself are my greatest strengths. Anyone who develops this, can be free from stress and have a peaceful mind. I hope you read the page

      I have written a short article about Shani Dasha but since I travel a lot, I hardly get the time to proofread it and post it on our blog. I will certainly try and post it by the coming weekend.

      May God Bless you and your family

      Jai Shree Krishna


    2. नमस्कार कल्पना,

      तुम्ही कसे आहात ?

      I will give you a brief report on your Saturn Dasha.
      You have Saturn in Capricorn which is Saturn’s own house. Shani is the Lord of the 9th and the 10th houses on your chart and is situated in the 9th house. Actually, the Shani Dasha is a beginning of a new phase in your life. If you strictly follow all the rules of Saturn, you will be blessed with strength and the opportunity to do a lot of very good deeds which will add to your positive Karma. You will have a very good income but the main thing is that you should not allow selfishness to take over your mind.

      I will suggest you a simple prayer schedule which you will have to follow sincerely every day. Don’t worry, the methods I suggest are really simple and quick as I don’t believe in wasting time.
      Your family situation will be pleasant and good and ‘shubha’ events are also foreseen in your family very soon.

      You may have some simple health issues and if you are careful of your diet and go for a walk every day, all will be fine.

      Maybe you should consider going for more social activities as your stars will support you in adding to your fame and reputation in society. You could create some new ideas as you are already quite well known in the field of journalism.

      Soon I will be writing about my own daily prayer routine which has helped me greatly in very severe situations and has also turned the whole situation around.

      May God Bless you and your Family

      जय श्री क्रुष्ण 🙂

      Jai Shree Krishna


  31. Pranaam Guruji Tavamithramji,

    I thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving my marriage from a stage of certain divorce. Your words are so full of magic, compassion, love, optimisim, motivation, hope and what not! Why did I not find you a few years ago!! My wife and I have now realised and understood what you so wonderfully explained to us about Karma. My wife and me are now thoroughly convinced that although we are both 100% Mangliks, we can still have a great married life if we cared to understand past Karma and the true value of Sade sati. I promise you that we have no ego problems between us at all! The talk with you on Skype actually did it as my wife was sitting right next to me. You opened our eyes and we are truly ashamed of ourselves for having behaved in such an immature was in spite of being well educated people. My in-laws in Hyderabad too have heard about you and would like to speak with you 🙂 But when do we get to see you? Why only a voice call?

    Your words are completely true about the power of Aditya Hridayam Manthram. You said on the other blog yesterday that many people have written to you about their experience and the positive results after reciting Adithya Hirudayam. I must say that I read the Manthra on your Shloks and Manthras page three times this morning and within an hour I got a call from my client and I received his order confirmation!!!!!!!!

    I am posting this message as a public message so that other people who are communicating with you may know that your suggestions work wonders.

    My wife and I pray for the well being of you and your family and that you may continue to guide us through your selfless service and teachings.

    …as you always say – Jai Sri Krishna


    1. God Bless you my dear Bala.

      You and your wife are lovely people and the probem was that you guys had forgotten this fact: All I did was to remind you of it 🙂

      Jai Shree Krishna


  32. Dear Brother,

    You told me that I am not passing through Sade sati , though I am a scorpio born Nov 14, 1961. In yr email to me you mentioned I quote ” You are born under Shravana star, Vrischik Lagna (Scorpio ascendant) and Makara rashi (Capricorn Moonsign)
    The Sade sati is calculated only from Rashi (Moon sign) and not from Lagna (Ascendant) hence according to me, you are not under Sade sati. ” unquote

    But on yr blog it is given that Virgo, Libra and scorpio are passing thru sade sati,… is it so that all scorpios are not passing through sadesati depending on their complete stars position and astro profile?

    I am Sarah from Karachi
    my D.O.B – Nov 14, 1961
    time of birth – 8:00 am
    place of birth – Karachi – Sindh- Pakistan.


    1. Namaste dear Sister,

      Please let me explain. Vedic Astrology is based on the Lunar calendar and NOT on the Solar or on the Gregorian calendar. Sade sati is calculated from the position of the Moon and NOT from the ascendant. Your Moon is in Capricorn and not in Scorpio. You have a Scorpio Ascendant or in other words, when you were born, Scorpio was rising but your Moon was in Capricorn.

      The part of life in which two to three Sade satis take place in a person’s life is based on his or her past Karma. People who experience it during student years have their entire education affected because of it. Saturn takes two and a half years to travel through one sign. Sade sati starts when Saturn enters the sign before your sign and ends when it leaves the sign which is one after your moon sign. This means 2.5 x 3 = 7.5 years.

      I come from a traditional family and we have been taught astrology, yoga and meditation from a very young age. This is the reason why we not only know how to handle this period but also how to benefit from it in making a roadmap for the next 30 years of life! This is a period for total purification of thought, word and deed and to repent for all sins committed so far. This a sort of a course correction in life.

      Vrischikans are almost at the end of the 1st phase of their Sade sati and more than 70 people have written to me during the last few days that totally unexpected positive things happened in their lives.

      On the 26th of February 2014, Venus will move to Capricorn which is ownde by Saturn. Now Saturn and Venus are friends and they will support each other. This celestial event will give people a great boost in matters of health, wealth, love, property matters, vehicles, jewellery, etc.

      I pray God to Bless you, your loved ones and all my brothers and sisters in your country.

      Jai Shree Krishna


      1. Hello Brother,

        Thanks for explaining me again now it is very much clear to me that I am not passing through sadesati. Indeed I love reading your advises and the way you elaborate you really are a true scorpion as scorpion are great in counselling and convincing people. I am really really very thankful to God to meet you finally though I wish had known you earlier in life, but destiny has its own ways 🙂



      2. Dear Tavamitramji

        My daughter is 17 years old and she is Visakam 4 pada, and Viruschiga rasi. She is normally very good in studies till her 8th grade but starting her 9th grade ie., 2011 she just tumbled down in her studies and she has now reached a point that she failed in one subject in 11th grade. She is always depressed or lazy and she could not bring her studies under her control at all I am scared on reading your message above :
        saying “People who experience it during student years have their entire education affected because of it.”
        Please help me to improve her studies and how this sade sati will affect her life.
        I am waiting for your reply.

        Jai Shree Krishna.
