Let us first see what the
science of Numbers,
'Numerology' has to say
about luck/fortune. The lucky
persons are differentiated and
distinguished by their 'Birth
dates'. Any person can be
born between dates. 1 to 31
only. This birth data can be
converted into "Birth Numbers".
For example if a person is born
on 27th of any month, his birth
number is 9 (2+7). We can
convert other birth dates into
basic birth Numbers of 1 to 9,
which essentially represent the
Nine planets of our universe.
Persons with birth numbers 3,6,9
are considered to be the most
fortunate, first grade. These
persons with less effort, work
are likely to gain more rewards,
benefits in life.
Persons with birth numbers 1, 2, 5, 7 are deemed to
be fortunate of the second order. These persons are
likely to be rewarded, benefitted corresponding to
their effort, work.
Persons with birth numbers 4, 8 are considered to be
lucky persons of the third order. These persons in spite
of putting more effort are likely to get less benefits in
We are not responsible for our birth; It is considered
God's gift. Birth under less fortunate numbers cannot be
avoided. But such persons need not get discouraged.
They shall never strengthen their numbers by their
actions. They shall never carry out important activities
on numbers ending 4 or 8. Nor they live in houses/
use vehicles with less lucky numbers. Instead they
shall select the numbers ending as 3,6,9 for all their
activities so that they are deemed lucky. This is the
first step towards "Athrishtam", true to the proverb "By
Wisdom one can overcome fate/destiny" one can
verify and confirm the above in life himself.
Secondly let us see what "Astrology" has to say about
'Athrishtam". In any one's birth horoscope, the Janma
lagna, first house or Ascendant is considered the most
important house. For the twelve different lagnas or
ascendants, Astrological texts has prescribed certain
yogakaraka planets or luck/Athrishtam giving planets.
These yogakaraka planets should be strong in one's
horoscope to derive maximum benefits in one's life.
That is, the planet should be -
1. In exalted position
2. Placed in own or friendly sign
3. Vargottama position that is in same
house in both Rashi and Navamsa
4. Aspected or Associated with benefic
5. 5. Hemmed in between benefic planets
On the other hand, the yogakaraka
planet shall never get weakened in one's
horoscope that is associated or aspectd
by malefic planets in inauspicious houses
of 6,8,12 positions from the Janma lagna,
in debilitated/unfriendly houses etc. The
respective results are likely to happen
during the main or sub periods (Dasa,
Bhukthi) of the yoga karaka planets.
Further certain auspicious Raja yogas
shall be evident in one's birth horoscope
for rapid advancement in life/society.
Notable among them are the pancha
mahapurusha yogas, dharma-karma
Adhipathi yoga, Gaja kesari yoga, neecha
bhangha raja yoga etc.
Lastly let us examine the palmistry point of
view. Of the many lines present in the palm
of one's hand, the fate line assumes greater
importance, fate line commences from the
wrist position, travels up straight and reaches
upto the Saturn mount on the middle, long,
finger. If the fate line is long, firm, continuous,
he is considered a fortunate person.
Besides the powerful fate line, a star figure is
observed on the hand, he shall rise in position
and reach greater heights. If the fate line
commences from the middle of the palm he
gets recognition late in life. If the fate line is
not strong, with breaks, with islands or square
on hand, an ordinary life is evident.
So far we have seen how "Fortune" of a person
is defined. Persons with less fortune can also
get better benefits by resorting to gemstones
(wearing precious stones), mantra (Reciting
divine names) and oushadhi (resorting
to medicines) as prescribed in the vedic
