Solving bad lajjitadi avasthas
„Prayer is the highest form of free will“ - Swami Dayananda Saraswati.
In order to really pray, you have to understand a lot, such as...:
we can´t control everything. We think when we work hard, we have success, but that´s not necessarily true...
So where do the results come from?
In order to really pray, you need to understand, that the world is neither unfair nor is it random.
You´re not a victim of your avasthas. There is an intelligent order.
There is a physical order, a biological order, a genetic order, a psychological order etc... And all these orders are interrelated.
In these unprecedented Corona times, we don´t know the future, we can´t be indifferent emotionally. In this situation being a bit anxious is natural, it is part of the order. But we can mold the emotions...
So what control do you have?
Yes, you can´t change the order but you can participate in the world. You can become the co-creator of the world.
There is a Law of Dharma. If you free will is guided by an understanding of Dharma, you can act in an appropriate and timely way and thereby increase desirable results in your life.
What can you do in Corona times?
You can watch a lot of news or create a lot of stories. You can trivialize it („oh, it´s just a flu!“).
There are a lot of coping mechanisms.
Or you use your free will constructively: You can make a contribution or a donation, help your neighbors etc..
Prayer involves that you recognize that there is a certain helplessness.
You can pray. You can assess, what is in your control and what isn´t. By prayer to the order you can convert your helplessness.
You add one more variable. Every cause has an effect and since Prayer is an action, therefore it has to have an effect. If more and more causes are added, the more the outcome changes.
That is why group prayer is such a powerful thing.
Real prayer is not blind faith
In the Bhagavad Gita there are 4 different types of people described who pray:
the person in trouble
the person who wants worldly benefits (He remembers that the order is in control of the outcome. Every shopowner in India does a Puja before his workday)
the person who wants to know Ishvara (the order). He asks for help and invests in knowing.
The wise person. He/She knows the nature of Ishvara and knows his/her essential oneness with the cause of the universe. Through some grace he/she came to this knowledge.
Every form is Ishvara. The order is Ishvara. Where is it not?
If you understand that, your whole life becomes a prayer.
Ishvara´s grace is with you and will help you to actualize your potential!
How do we time lajjitadi avasthas? Vimshottari, natural ages or are they always on?
Vimshottari Antardasas especially and maturation ages.
There are many mantras for the planets. So its not about correct or not. Parashara reccomends sutras from the rig veda, while Puranas reccomend ones that are exactly about the planet. Most important is the concentration and its good if the meaning of the mantra follows what you want to get from the planet.
