Horoscope for Thursday 01st September 2016

Horoscope for Thursday 01st September 2016

Are you curious to know what today has in store for you? Jessica Adams' free daily horoscope will help you to plan your Thursday.


March 21 - April 19
This eclipse falls in your house of work, daily routine, lifestyle – and the body. The Moon is blotting out the Sun, mostly, and the customary Ring of Fire reminds you to draw a ring around the current topic and delay it. This is a fresh start with your job, university degree, unpaid work (and very specifically, food, drugs, drink, doctors, fitness, healers and the rest). Allow for low visibility, though - give it a day or two.


April 20 - May 20
Johnny Cash sang it and you are living it. This Ring of Fire is actually an eclipse in your zone of pregnancy, babies, children and younger adults. Lovers also fall into this category too. When you just can't see as much as you should, coast past the eclipse and get details later.


May 21 - June 20
You could pick an easier time to make big judgement calls about your house, land, flatmate, relative, home town, homeland or apartment. This eclipse conceals more than it reveals and you don’t really need that. It's a Ring of Fire eclipse, and so much is blocked out now. Be wary.


June 21 - July 22
You are ruled by the Moon so this eclipse affects you more than most. What should be visible, clear and obvious is concealed from you. This is especially true with the internet, multimedia, telephones and computers. It also applies to your way with words, ideas and images in general. Mercury is Retrograde too, so give this a couple of days and be very cautious if buying phones or computers. We also associate this zone of your chart with short haul flights and commuting/travelling so just be more aware than usual.


July 23 - August 22
The eclipse falls in your cash, house, land, business, company, apartment and retail zone. Your ruler the Sun is mostly concealed. What you need to know is also unclear or unseen. This is a fresh start, but the whole story is unclear or even covered up from you. Be very wary.


August 23 - September 22
All is yet to be revealed about a matter affecting your title, photograph, video, profile, reputation, appearance or name. This eclipse won’t show you what you need to see. Skip it. If it's about you (as in 'Me, Me, Me') then you just won't see what you need to see. It's a Ring of Fire eclipse and although this is a new chapter, the relevant details are blacked out.


September 23 - October 22
Has the secret been revealed or is it still firmly buried in your treasure chest? Do people realise you have been lurking in the shadows on something special or are you still incognito? This eclipse will cover up, blot out and conceal a matter which is top secret or takes place behind the scenes. Knowing that, you may want to be wary.


October 23 - November 21
It will all work out with your friend and the group, to your total advantage. You just have to get past an eclipse, which will blot out who and what you need to see most clearly, now. This is an odd period. It's a fresh start, with a New Moon, but there's blackout on information and knowledge you need to be sharply aware of. Let this one pass.


November 22 - December 21
An eclipse in your sector of success, achievement and ambition is not to be ignored, as it covers up more than it shows. You might want to wait before passing final judgement. You are essentially supported here, as until September 9th your protection or luck holds, yet there is an undeniable missing sentence here, or even a missing paragraph. Write this story later.


December 22 - January 19
There is a shadowy, unclear moment on this eclipse which will cover up most of what you need to see and know. Your travel, foreign, web, education or book agenda is the source. Be sharply aware that this eclipse blots out, and blacks out - it does not show, as it should. Yes, this is a new start with another part of the world, another nationality, a book, worldwide web priority or course - yet you may want to wait.


January 20 - February 18
The land, bank, family money, house, apartment, business interests and so on, require good timing. Tradition says you should not act on an eclipse. Wait a couple of days. By rights it's a fresh start, but it's unusual, because there is too much information missing. You're basically in a good position until the 9th of September but be aware of this.


February 19 - March 20
This should be a bright, clear, fresh new beginning involving your partner. This also applies to former or potential partners too. Instead, something is not easy to see. We might also apply this to enemies, rivals or opponents. The Ring of Fire eclipse covers up most of the picture and conceals the majority of the story. Write this chapter later, maybe?

Speaking Tree - The Gita makes you a high Networth individual

Speaking Tree - The Gita makes you a high Networth individual:

Everyone has infinite potential and talent. Yet most people live and die without so much as a glimpse of who they really are or what they bring to the world. The Bhagwad Gita helps unlock your potential so that you gain power to rock the world. All it takes is a slight shift in attitude, change in thinking. M K Gandhi was a timid barrister who transformed into a Mahatma. Swami Vivekananda, who initially trembled at the thought of addressing the Parliament of Religions, became a world-famous preacher! Abdul Kalam rose from humble origins to become Presidents of India.

The Gita says you too can metamorphose from an ordinary to an extraordinary immortal.

It takes you step-by-step to the highest pedestal of human excellence. Not everyone is hugely talented or blessed with a high IQ, but every single person has spirit in equal measure. Just remove the excess matter obscuring the divine spark and you reach perfection. As you think, so you become. You have been thinking of body, mind and intellect continuously, so you have become weak. Think of spirit with the same fervour and consistency! But how can the ordinary person achieve this when he has obligations in the world? It is impractical to expect people to leave their homes and work places to retire to the Himalayas in search of the Divine.

Do what you have to. Just think of Atman, Spirit. What you do matters little. It is where your mind is that makes the difference. Prayer or worship is not a casual, once-a-week ritual. It is a full time focus on the transcendental. In Chapter 4, Krishna takes you through the cycle of life which consists of three segments – intake of stimuli from the world, reaction to the stimuli and response back into the world. He further splits these three into 12 yajnas or sacrifices. Yajna is the ancient Vedic ritual of fire worship.
It consists of offering grain or ghee in the havan kund, a brick-walled enclosure. When fuel is added, fire is kindled. This process of offering and kindling is applied by Krishna to all life’s activities, reminding us of God in our daily routine. Think of all worldly interactions as worship and you do not have to perform the ritual of havan. It is taking place within you 24/7!You have no control over what the world throws at you. It could be pleasant or unpleasant. But you do have the power to convert it to worship.

Your neighbour may scream at you. Think of it as yajna – the offering is the sound, the kindling is hearing. Your attention is on that power that enables you to hear, not on what you hear. Then you become independent of the world, no longer cowering in fear. You have the upper hand. The world only bullies a weak person. Gain strength and the world will leave you alone. All problems will dissolve in your newfound confidence and you will be free to pursue the Higher. Whether you are seeing, hearing, eating, breathing or acting, you are reminded of God every moment of your life.

Gradually your mind gets anchored in the higher. Lower desires drop. All yajnas end in wisdom, Self-realisation. The collateral benefit is worldly success and happiness. 



*संथारा आराधना समाप्ति*

सभी धर्म प्रेमी बंधुओं को सूचित किया जाता है कि श्री एस एस जैन सभा जैन  स्थानक अहिंसा विहार सेक्टर 9 रोहिणी दिल्ली मे विराजित *उप. महासाध्वी ड़ा सरोज श्री जी महाराज* का *36 घंटे का संथारा  31/08/2016 @12:50* बजे सिज गया है

ऐसी  महान विभुती आत्मा की  *अंतिम शोभायात्रा*  आज दोपहर *2 बजे  अहिंसा  विहार* से शुरू  होकर और आसपास के क्षेत्रों / सेक्टरों व *डि सी  चौक* होते हुए *एम 2 के  नाहरपुर निगमबोध धाट* पर  करीब 3-3:15 बजे  पहुंचेगी ।

Time has mainly two phases, namely, Avasarpini the phase of decline and Utsarpini the phase of evolution. Avasarpini  means that phase of time in which there takes place a gradual decline. During this phase, age, body, strength, happiness, etc., decline.  On the contrary, during the phase called Ursarpini which means the time of progress and development, happiness, strength, body etc., attain progress.  When the Utsarpini phase reaches its highest limit, the Avsarpini  phase commences and when the Avasarpirni phase reaches its highest limit the Utsarpini commences. This cycle of time has to keep revolving thus. There is no end whatsoever to the revolution of this wheel. That is why, it has been named the wheel of time.  Each of these phases has 6 aspects; and each aspect is known as Ara or an arc ‑ wheel of time.
1) Susham Susham Kal the phase of absolute happiness.
2) Susham Kal the phase of happiness.
3) Susham Dusham Kal the phase of much happiness and some sorrow.
4) Dusham Susham Kal the phase of much sorrow and some happiness.
5) Dusham Kal the phase of sorrow.
6) Dusham Dusham Kal the phase of absolute sorrow.
All of us are at present in the fifth phase called Dusham, the phase of sorrow.


Twenty four Tirthankars are born in every Utsarpini phase and the Avasarpini phase. They, by means of their endeavor, become absolutely enlightened; they become devoid of attachments; they become Jinas; and for the spiritual welfare of all creatures in the Universe, they establish and expound the philosophy. Because they establish the philosophy, they are called Tirthankars. One definition of tirth is Sangha or society, Chauvanno Sangho tittham. This four‑fold society of Sadhus, Sadhvis, Shravaks and Shravikas is together called tirtha.


The twenty four Tirthankars‑Jineshwars in their respective periods preach the great dharma and show a clear and straight path for tha achievement of dharma. The essential form of Jain dharma has been the same from the time of Bhagwan  Rishabhdev upto the time of Bhagwan Mahavir. The ultimate achievement of dharma has been Mukti or Moksha or absolute deliverance. The practice of the austerities like non‑violence and truthfulness has become the real means for the attainment of Mukti or salvation. In the practice of these austerities, there may take place degrees of variations and at times such variations have taken place. But the essential form of the Jain dharma has not changed in the period of any Tirthankara and such a change will never take place. Shraman Bhagwan Mahavir restated the same eternal truth as was preached by Tirthankar Bhagwän Rishabhadev. The same message is today known as Jain dharma.  Bhagwän Sri Rishabhdev‑Adinath, the first Tirthankar was born and attained the salvation at the end of the third  Susham Dusham Kal, time of much happiness and some sorrow. The rest of twenty three Tirthankars were born and attained the salvation in fouth Dusham Susham Kal, time of much sorrow and some happiness and in their respective periods they revitalised the same path as had been shown by Bhagwän Sri Rishabhdev.

Most haunted places in India

Most haunted places in India:

The mysteries of the unknown have always fascinated the human mind. It’s not surprising for experts to say that India is a beautiful yet deliciously mysterious country that beholds the secrets and stories of a lot of palaces and their kings, of treasures and their keys, of those who died a painful death and are now a part of the broken synchrony that is reality. Which is why a lot of forts or palaces or beaches or even a ‘just another’ valley in India has a history or a twist of mystery attached to it or something which makes a more interesting case.
Are you fond of the unknown? Do you remember the Zee Horror Show or theAahat?
If you are one of those who love to turn the pages long sealed and kept hidden from the human eye, if the word ‘supernatural‘ gives you an adrenalin rush, you, my friend, like me and many others, are someone who likes to push the boundaries a little and take a peek into what’s happening in the strange, mysterious world out there. This post is for all the travellers who are done with the monotony of life and are looking forward to exploring the unexplored.
Some tales can be stranger than fiction, which is why I say – At your own risk!

Here’s a wiki list of the 35 such haunted places in India carefully mapped out for your benefit.

1. Bhangarh Fort – Ajabgarh, Alwar, Rajasthan

Bhangarh Fort (Credits)
The ghost town of Bhangarh is one of thescariest, spookiest places you could possibly imagine, not to mention, one of the most haunted places in India. Situated near a popular forest, this town is now slowly luring visitors from around the area, and country, for all the wrong reasons.
It should be noted that if you decide to visit this place after the sun has gone down, you won’t be allowed to. In fact, there is a strict warning about howdangerous this place becomes after sunset.
The story which this town is well-known for tells the tale of a magician who fell in love with the local princess of the area even though their match was impossible. Being quite the master of dark magic, he decided to cast a spell on her to make her surrender to him. However, the princess learned of his plans and found a way to kill him. Before his death, however, the magician cast a dark spell on the palace which caused its doom.
Despite Bhangarh Fort being regarded as one of the most horror haunted places in India has been officially promoted as atourist destination. However, once the night falls and the darkness takes over, this place becomes deserted, leaving it prey to the supposed ‘supernatural’.Mystery of Bhangarh Fort also featured on a TV show and you can have a look at the most haunted place in India’s videoyourself.

Remains of the abandoned village (Credits)
The village of Kuldhara is popularly known to be a deserted ghost village that has been abandoned since 1800s. It is said to carry a curse of the villagers who vanished from there overnight, after having lived there for over 7 centuries.
The village lies in ruins, established in 1291 by the Paliwal Brahmins, who were a very prosperous clan and were known for their business acumen and agricultural knowledge. It has been said that one night in 1825 all the people in Kuldhara and nearby 83 villages vanished in dark. All of a sudden and without any warning.
Tales about this mystery include the fact that Salim Singh, the minister of the state, once visited this village and fell in love with the beautiful daughter of chieftain wanting to marry her. The minister threatened the villagers by saying that if they did not marry the girl to him, he would levy huge taxes. The chief of the village along with those of adjoining villages decided to abandon and migrate elsewhere to protect the girl’s honour. Nobody saw them leave nor did anyone figure where they went, they simply vanished. It is said that the villagers also cast a spell on the village as they left, cursing anyone who tried to inhabit the land.

Known for its sheer architectural brilliance, this fort has witnessed variousspooky occurrences. It is believed that the level of supernatural activity is on its zenith on every full moon night. Themysterious story behind the strange activities suggests that a young prince was brutally murdered here which is maybe why his spirit haunts the place and when the night falls, sounds of him shrieking can be heard. There are many locals who actually camp at night on the fort grounds just to hear the little boy’s scream.
It is preferable to visit the fort during day hours since the fort is deserted at nightexcept for maybe a caretaker. Visit this place at your own risk as this would definitely be the scariest haunted place in Pune, India.

For instance people who pass this place claim to have seen four males sitting together and enjoying an alcoholic beverage by the light of a single candle. At first, this was not considered spooky for it could just be four friends having a good time but once it was established that it was indeed four ghosts, people in and around the area became increasingly interested. In addition, some claim to also witness a young girl coming out of the house in what many people believe to be a red dress. With time people have abandoned that place for obvious reasons but it continues to catch the fancy of those who love the paranormal.

In fact, the night guards have witnessed a lot of strange activities which have also included a guard getting slapped in the face with such force that he nearly toppled from his chair. Immediately afterwards both the guards searched the whole society and they could not find anyone around.
This incident instilled fear in the minds of the residents who are careful not to enter the society too late in the night. However, the housing society still remains occupied even though the paranormal activitiescontinue to haunt the residents and guards.

Tunnel-33, Barog, Shimla
Tunnel number 33 is the longest tunnel on the Shimla-Kalka railway stretch, situatednext to the Barog Train Halt. Often claimed to be the straightest tunnel in the world, this feat of engineering has an interesting history. The task of construction was given to a British engineer named Captain Barog who failed to complete it. He was later fired from the job, mocked and driven to depression. One day he went into the tunnel and shot himself.
The tunnel was completed by someone else but named after him. Apparently his ghost still haunts the tunnel but is a friendly one. Locals also recount seeing awoman run screaming into the tunnel and a man asking for matchsticks to light his cigarette. Tunnels are inherently eerie places and a story like this is sure to make it one of the most haunted ones.

The small colony of Chandan Nagar in Pune has a little terror hidden in it’s womb. The ghost of a little girl who roams the night in a white frock, cradling a dollin her hands! She appears at the strike of the midnight hour and comes screaming at you if you happen to cross her path. The very description is enough to make you jump out of your skin. There is story behind this. About 10 years ago the girl was killed at a construction site and has haunted the place since then. People have reported that she smiles at you if you look at her. This is good fodder for a nightmare, leave alone venturing to find her. Or should you?

You know what they say -See it to believe it!
India is definitely a place of mysteries. For very long, people in the west have thought of India as a place of snake charmers and magicians. People have been visiting India to places like Varanasi, Rishikesh, Haridwar, etc. for spirituality. India has been the origin for 4 of World’s biggest religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism. And as they say, good spirits and bad spirits go hand in hand.
Indian Hindu mythology is full of devils and “Asuras” (demons). Time to time, various demons have rose and fought against angels and gods. According to hindu mythology, spirits never die and those spirits which die unnatural death can never find peace and keep roaming around, causing the place to be haunted. These free-roaming spirits have also been known to attack people, create unnatural incidents and make the places spooky.
These haunted places in India are just among the famous ones. Children in India grow up to listening to lots of stories from their grandmothers and some of them include haunted stories. Almost every village in India has a tree or a well which is supposedly haunted. A woman in white sari has been the typical image of spirits. I have spent so many nights discussing haunted stories with my friends and they always give me a chill in my spines, yet they are so much fun. I am sure you would also have heard of such stories or maybe created one ;)
