देश के बेटे को भी न्याय मिलेगा क्या?

कुछ दिन पहले एक चैनल पर आ रहा था – अब मिलेगा देश की बेटी को न्याय , पिछले दिनों दिल्ली में हुए बलात्कार काण्ड में जो कानूनी धारा लगाईं  गयी उसके बारे में बताते हुए ऐसा कहा जा रहा था . इस में कोई शक नहीं की बलात्कार एक घिनौना अपराध है और पीड़ित को न्याय मिलना चाहिए लेकिन ऐसा ही एक घिनौना अपराध कानून का दुरूपयोग करके किसी का जीवन बर्बाद करना है . पिछले दिनों ही खबर थी – एक महिला ने बलात्कार का झूठा केस दर्ज करवाया , जब तक झूठा केस करवाने वाले को सजा नहीं मिलेगी तब तक कानून का दुरूपयोग होता रहेगा , महिलायों के खिलाफ अपराध के कानूनी संख्या बढती रहे गी , कानून बनते रहेंगे .

उम्मीद है किसी दिन ऐसी भी खबर आएगी – देश के बेटे को दहेज़ के झूठे मामले में फंसाने वाली बीवी के खिलाफ आरोपपत्र दायर – अब मिलेगा देश के बेटे को न्याय .

सपना है, सुंदर है ,कभी पूरा भी होगा .

अंग्रेजी में नहीं लिख रहा रहा क्यों की शर्म आती है कि हमारे देश में इतने साल से कानून का दुरूपयोग हो रहा है जिसको सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने भी माना है और सरकार को आदेश दिए हैं  दहेज़  कानून में संशोधन के लेकिन अभी तक कुछ नहीं हुआ . भारतीय इसे  पढ़ें , सोचें  कि क्या होना चाहिए – पीड़ित के लिए न्याय  या नागरिक के लिए न्याय  या महिला के लिए न्याय .

महिलाओं के प्रति संवेदनशील  होने का अर्थ यह तो नहीं की पुरुष के प्रति असंवेदनशील हो जाएँ .

नया सभी का हक है . पुरुष के बिना समाज की कल्पना करने वाले भी सोचें और जो ऐसा नहीं सोच सकते उनको तो सोचना ही चाहिए .

Domestic violence and astrology

painful relationships is something which is not new neither is domestic violence.

Legal definition of domestic violence differs from country to country .

In nutshell domestic violence may be termed as one or all of these: inflicting physical.mental,emotional, financial and social ( in terms of spoiling someones reputation) injury.

needless to say that it is a gender neutral activity, both men and women have been found to be initiators of domestic violence resulting in creation of both feminist and masculist groups fighting for their rights.

We Indians believe in matching of horoscopes  to ensure a stable marriage but we find cases where despite a so called well matched horoscope the marriage runs into problems due to domestic violence.

Long ago while going a bad patch in life I was introduced to this concept which in within our texts but still overlooked by many astrologers while matching horoscopes.

Tithi- the lunar date, nakshatra- star occupied by moon,

rasi- sign occupied by moon,

vaar- weekday and lagna – ascendent

need to be looked into to analyze mental and emotional injury, damage to reputation and physical injuries respectively.

in case there is ghataka, it is better to avoid the match and if already married remedies need to be done under guidance of a good astrologer to minimize the injury thus stabilizing the  marriage.

for a male it is double injury because  a man who is a victim of domestic violence may still have to pay alimony to get out of a painful relationship which adds more to the pain.

Even when 36 guna match, marriage can be very painful for one or for both.

At that time I was directed to read  the details on website of Shri Sanjay Rath but that writeup is not available in today’s date however a fantastic detailed writeup on this topic with all relavent tables is available on website of Shri Sarajit Poddar, who is a student of Shri Sanjay Rath.

the article can be read here :

I would request all to consider this while horoscope matching .

Yoga-Yajnavlkya/ Yajnavlkya gita

Yoga Yajnavlkya is a text on yoga attributed to Rishi Yajnavlkya and is in form of a dialogue between Yajnavlkya and Brahmvadini Gargi.

spread over 12 chapters it demonstrates the basics of yoga principles applicable to both men and women establishing the fact that in vedic India both men and women were entitled to spiritual pursuits.

it defines the eight limbs of yoga with slight differentiation wrt patanjali yoga sutras.

yajnavlkya lists 10 yamas ( moral restraints ) as  ahimsa (non violence), satya (truth) ,asteya (non stealing) ,brahmacharya ( sexual restraint) , daya ( compassion/ sympathy) , arjava ( sincerity, straight forwardness) , kshama ( forgiveness) , dhriti ( mental firmness) , mitahara ( controlled diet ), shaucha ( purity ).

ten niyamas- things to do :

tapas ( penance ) , santosha ( contentment ) ,astikeya ( truthfulness ) , dana ( donation ) , ishvarapuja ( prayers ), siddhanta sharavana ( leaning vedanta principles ) , hiri ( withdrawing from things which cause shame ) , mati            ( sacred beliefs ) , japa ( repeating sacred syllables), vrata ( path to ethical conduct ).

ten yamas and ten niyamas as opposed to 5 in patanjali yoga sutras.

the test also speaks about other limbs of yoga as  asanas, nadis, pranayama ( breath control ), pratyahara ( turning inwards, focussing ) , dharana ( self absorption ), dhyana and samadhi.

shloka on Sri Krishna from Mukundamala stotram

कृष्णो रक्षतु नो जगत्त्रयगुरुः कृष्णं नमस्यामहम्
कृष्णेनामरशत्रवो विनिहताः कृष्णाय तस्मै नमः।
कृष्णादेव समुत्थितं जगदिदं कृष्णस्य दासोऽस्म्यहम्
कृष्णे तिष्ठति सर्वमेतदखिलं हे कृष्ण रक्षस्व माम्॥४४॥
kṛṣṇo rakṣatu no jagattrayaguruḥ kṛṣṇaṁ namasyāmaham
kṛṣṇenāmaraśatravo vinihatāḥ kṛṣṇāya tasmai namaḥ|
kṛṣṇādeva samutthitaṁ jagadidaṁ kṛṣṇasya dāso’smyaham
kṛṣṇe tiṣṭhati sarvametadakhilaṁ he kṛṣṇa rakṣasva mām||44||
May Krishna, the guru of the three worlds protect us. I bow to Krishna.
By Krishna, the enemies of the Devas (Asuras) were killed. Salutations to that Krishna.
From Krishna, has this entire world emanated. I am Krishna’s servant.
In Krishna stays this entire Universe. O Krishna, protect me!
