Pleasing the planets Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA) Article published in Starteller, June 2007 MANTRA is a mysterious group of letters or phrases so connected with one another that when it is chanted, a peculiar sensation or vibration is generated in the entire system. When one chants a mantra correctly and systematically with proper intonation, it immediately sets up a vibration in the nervous system in such a manner that harmony is enhanced in the body and also in the whole world. Different mantras produce different vibrations and they invoke different deities. Mantra is chanted to execute a certain purpose. It is believed that in each mantra, the energy of a particular deity remains latent, but it becomes active the moment the mantra is pronounced accurately in the manner prescribed by the sastras. According to Vedic beliefs, if a mantra is pronounced correctly, the deity to whom it is addressed has no choice but to respond to the invoker automatically and help him.

We are giving below the most effective ones in our day-to-day life, such as the relevant potent mantras, charity, deity to be worshipped, pooja and the offerings, specification of Rudraksha, etc. There are several mantras and remedies to please the planets, as prescribed in the various scriptures.

New planet holds possibility for life First earth-sized planet found, circling its mother-star, at a distance suitable for life, with good prospects for liquid surface water. The new media have been very excited over the discovery of a “habitable” planet around a nearby star. All sorts of adjectives are tossed around about the planet, and most make it sound like a twin of Earth. To put the record straight, this planet is NOT going to be particularly Earth-like any more than Mars and Venus are Earth-like. Recently, a team of astronomers led by Stephane Udry and Michael Mayor (Geneva Observatory) announced the discovery of two new planets orbiting the star Gliese 581. Already, a larger planet, having over 15 times the Earth’s mass, had been found orbiting very close to the star. But, there were two more, smaller planets of masses about 5 Earth masses (Gliese 581c) and about 8 Earth masses (Gliese 581d) What makes the smaller of the two new planets (Gliese 581c) special is where it is located. Gliese 581c is at just the right distance that Udry et al suggests that the average temperature may fall within the range of -3 C to 40 C. The presumption is that if it is somewhere in the middle of that range, then it may be able to support liquid water, as on Earth. Know about the year ahead How will you fare in the next year?
