This great souls are in every part of the world, but particularly in India and especially in Tamil Nadu, the land of the Mystics.

Education, which cannot give peace to the soul or cannot give the knowledge of the Self and the inner satisfaction, is not education. Education, which cannot wipe the tears of others, known or unknown, is not education. Education is understanding the situation - leading the life that can make the life, the Life Divine, where the ultimate goal of the life is the God-Realisation.

During 2012, the Sun, Earth and Karthigai star, will be in alignment resulting in more of the grace light entering the Earth plane. Thereafter, it is predicted that the Karthigai - Lord Murugan energy will be responsible for the transformation of the planet and of the genetic evolution of the human species into Gods and Goddesses status. This energy will allow humans to return to their original blueprint. The most important thing to remember about these new energies is to stay conscious and match our frequency to receieve it through proper worships, rituals, yoga and mystical knowledge according to great siddha masters.

The Siddhas were scientists, particularly in their investigations into chemistry, astronomy, plants, human anatomy and physiology. They applied their extraordinary powers, developed through intensive yogis practices, to research these areas on atomic and universal levels without the use of sophisticated equipment. In the long linege of Siddhas, one does not know when they came into earth's existance. Whether they still exist or are they Ascended masters teaching humanity the various sciences and philosophy, will perhaps, be never known.

In the teachings of the Siddhas the human body is a temple of God. Man is a miniature representation of Paramatma or Supreme Intelligence. The purpose of life is to realize God.To manifest that realization in all planes of existence.

Using special salts as well as herbal formulae the Siddhas developed the unique science of rejuvenation, known as "kaya kalpa", which allowed them to prolong their lives until the long term effects of Kriya Kundalini Pranayama and similar yogic practices could complete the process of transformation, bringing about physical immortality.

Siddhas followed the ancient Guru- disciple apprenticeship method. They revealed their secrets to those students whom they felt could be trusted not to misuse the science. The science of Kaya kalpa was limited to those great sages. who were prepared for the uplifting of humanity. Ayurveda came much later as discipline.

The Siddhas had vast knowledge of human anatomy. Their single-minded concentration was unique. It was was achieved with perfection. Their literature on medicine was extensive. The Siddhas were a close-knit community and preferred to preserve their knowledge. They reduced this knowledge to codes and symbols and their literature was steeped in mysticism. Only a Siddha can decode the writings of a Siddha. A beginner could not gain any appreciable knowledge without the Siddha accepting him as a student.

Siddhas such as Thirumoolar, Agastyar, Boganathar, and many more had realized their capacity for experiencing and manifesting the Divine. This was not only limited to the spiritual plane of existence. The Cosmic Spirit would descend into the more lower and gross planes of consciousness, the intellectual, mental, and physical bodies. This for us is a limiting thought as our yogic parasites are not as intense as the Siddha. With progressive surrender of their being , their ego and their very lives the Divine would indeed transform them. With intense practices of various Kriyas, hatha and bhakti yoga, meditation, mantras and Kriya Kundalini Pranayama they merged with the Cosmic Spirit . This was race against time as the natural breakdown of cells, catabolism, had to be reversed to anabolism to prolong the extent of their age. They had to complete the Divine transformation. With Kriya Kundalini yoga and using specific herbal and mineral salts they were able to prolong their youth for the Ultimate transformation.

The Universe was created out of a Cosmic Thought . No civilization be it the Inca, Atlantis or Egyptian had such a precise knowledge as the Siddhas. They were proficient in the science of longevity or deathless state, alchemy, medicine and physics.

Eclipse ( Grahanam ) and Remedies

Eclipses (Grahanam) and How to Do Remedies (Pariharam) During Eclipse - By Vijayakumar Alagappan

The Hindu scriptures, the Purãnam (written by Veda Vyasar), narrate the story of how the eclipse came into existence: Eclipses have fascinated man since time immemorial, but the real scientific cause was known to Siddhas, Yogis, Rishis and Saddhus, even during ancient times. In order to make matters clear to young children, they used to tell the story of how Rahu, the dragon would swallow up the Moon or Sun during eclipse time and release them after some time. The story goes that Rahu sat for a feast disguised as a Deva (though he was an Asura), when Lord Vishnu in His Mohini Avatar distributed nectar to the Devas which was obtained at the time of churning of the Milky Ocean. Lord Surya-Sun along Lord Chandra-Moon  exposed the designs of Rahu and hence, the story goes, Rahu chooses to punish the luminaries for this, as an act of revenge. In India, all scientific truths are imbibed in our routine life, by explaining then through Puranic stories. Through tradition or custom, all scientific truths are brought to the stage of implementation in day to day life. Therein lies the wisdom of our great Siddhas, Yogis, Rishis and Saddhus.

Performing Pariharam-Remedies during Eclipse
Persuing spiritual activities, especially doing Japa of mantras, is recommended during the eclipse period. In order to overcome adverse effects of eclipses, one should bathe in holy waters, offering tarpanam to departed ancestors and do some charities.Those who are running the major or sub periods of Rahu or Ketu should chant Rahu mantra, Nagaraja mantra or Goddess Durga mantra (Hmmm Dum Durgaya Namaha) to get rid of the afflictions.Those facing hurdles in marriage or carrier also should take to worship during eclipse at home (generally temples will be closed during eclipse). After the eclipse is over, take bath again and eat the food, which is prepared fresh after the eclipse.

The most recommended ritual to be done on this day is Tarpanam, the ritual to appease the souls of your ancestors. The gateway to heaven is the Sun and Moon. During eclipse, the gates open and the souls visit the earth plane making it the right time to access their blessings and divine energy.

Holy Dips and Items Recommended for Charity during Eclipse

It is believed that during an eclipse all the water becomes as pure as the water of the holy river Ganga. Any surging water (say, waterfall or a fountain) or water in the lakes, river and the seas is regarded as a good omen, its auspiciousness increasing in the above sequence. The more pious may go to some sacred place or to the nearest seashore for taking a holy bath. There is a strong belief that any donation given during the eclipse hours is most auspicious and valuables such as money, clothes, cows, horses, land and gold are to be gifted away.

Charity of ten items is recommended, to ward off inauspicious effects arising out of eclipse are as follows:
- Cow : (people who cannot afford to give a cow, which is expensive, can substitute this by giving a coconut)
- Sesame
- Land (since land is expensive Sandal Stick is given as a substitute for land)
- Gold (one gram piece of gold are available in shops and they are fit to be donated)
- Ghee
- Clothes
- Grain
- Jaggery
- Silver Vessel
- Salt

Charity of five items is recommended are as follows:
- Lamp
- Book
- Bell
- Cloth
- Vessel

All Hindu Temples remain closed during Surya Grahanam. Temples open only after proper rituals are performed to get rid of the ill effects of the Surya Grahanam. However, some Lord Shiva temples remain open during Surya Grahanam as Lord Shiva Himself is an embodiment of darkness.

Why mantras should be chanted during eclipse times?
During eclipse, the sound vibrations get intensified. As a result, the person who recites a mantra gets manifold benefits than while it on a normal day. There is a second version to this also. When there is an eclipse, both the Sun and Moon are afflicted by Rahu or Ketu. So a person's mind will not function well. If he takes a decision at that time, it will prove wrong, because mind is affected at that time. To prevent him from working at that time, the mind should be diverted to something else. So it is ordained that some spiritual karma like chanting of mantras should be done, at the time of eclipse. Aditya Hridayam, Gayatri Mantra or Vishnu Gayathri mantra are also gives beneficial effects when chanted at the time of eclipse.
Preservation of Food Items
It is also said food items get contaminated, when the rays emanating during the time of eclipse pervade the atmosphere. Herein lies the utility and value of Darbha grass. Darbha / Kusha grass grows freely in hot and dry places. It is said that if we put a single Darbha grass on food items, that enough to protect it harmful efforts of eclipse. Darbha grass is also used in many religious functions. It has even been proved scientifically that even X-ray radiation can be absorbed by Darbha grass. This grass should be freely used to protect foodstuffs during times of eclipse.

Do's and Dont's during Grahanam
- avoid performing any important work or deal
- bath before and after grahanam; taking a dip in rivers, water falls or lakes is highly auspicious
- avoid eating during and the food which is cooked before grahanam
- take the food which is cooked after grahanam
- do not sleep during the grahanam
- do not go outside during Grahanam

Lighting of Lemon Ghee lamps during the eclipse time will also be very useful in weakening the negative effects of Rahu. Those belonging to Jyesta (Kettai) & Moola stars should avoid looking/getting exposed to the Eclipse. Specific prayers to Goddess Durga (for Rahu), Lord Sri Krishna and Lord Shiva (For Moon), Lord Hanuman, Moon God are required to be made during eclipse. For those under the constellation of Moola whose star lord is Ketu it is suggested to pray Lord Ganapathi also during eclipse time.


  1. Dear Mr. Vijayakumar. Thank you ,thank you and thank you for a wonderful and impressive blog. It is truly kind of you to share your knowledge. We agree with you that knowledge is our birth right but many who know are not willing to share. We have been trying to study astrology from many teachers unfortunately we have not progressed. We have not stopped looking for teachers to guide us for a reasonable fee. We were wondering if you could provide lessons in person or via the net please? if no , could you introduce some teacher who could guide us.
    We are also interested in reading our charts. I am trying to discuss with family members and when i get their ok i shall get back to you.
    I would like to do my husband's chart first.

    Thank you again. Have a wonderful day. God bless.
