Knowing your previous birth – astrologically.



The Life Research Academy started in Hyderabad by one Dr Newton and his wife Dr Lakshmi conducts workshops to help people understand the goals of present life by knowing about the past lives! This is based on the age-old theory of Karma and its continuing cycle keeping the souls in bondage. Some excerpts from a workshop conducted by this foundation as reported in the today's Chennai edition of Deccan Chronicle are produced below.


The prospect of knowing one's past birth fascinates many people. The Maharishis were capable of 'seeing' the past and future of people just be looking at them. 'Thrikaala gyanam' due to their spiritual strength helped them 'see' like this. Another factor that helps in 'seeing' particularly the past is by analyzing the way one behaves in the present life or by what one experiences in the present life.


The 'vasanas' of the past births continue in the present birth.

If there is some particular tendency seen specifically in a person, it can be said that he has carried it from the previous birth.


Similarly the experiences (both good and bad) of the previous births give their respective results in the present birth. It is possible to relate an experience that 'sucks' one in the present birth to a causative happening in the previous birth. Such experiences can be logically explained. One can understand such connections very well from naadi readings of many people.


This link http://www.starteller.com/past-birth-karmas.html provides some such correlations between births that help one identify the kind of birth that one has had previously. The table given below is formed after analyzing many naadi readings. This can be seen in the above link.


Past Life

Present Life

Forced his wife against her will to sleep with a rich man

The wife became the concubine of a rich man and later on came back to this man and again left him. The subject is without relationship.

The native married a number of women and killed them one by one in order to get married to younger women.

Now jobless and dependant on women for his survival.

The native impregnated a virgin, abandoned her and went abroad. The virgin committed suicide.

Now he is childless and the women he marries die prematurely.

The girl deliberately messed up the marriages of young girls.

She has innumerable relationship problems.

The native ignored the parents and mistreated them.

He undergoes problems in his old age.

The native blinded the eye of a Calf.

Her eye surgery failed due to the mistake of the surgeon and she lost her vision.

He stole temple properties.

His house remains under constant attacks of burglars.

The native never paid wages to her servants.

Now jobless and is being exploited by others.

The native refused to marry the woman after engagement.

The woman came back in this life and killed him.

The native was a jeweller. Someone came to sell his jewels. The jeweller offered a low price and when the seller said that he didn't want to sell them, the jeweller claimed that those jewels were his. The poor seller suffered a heart attack and died.

The native suffers heart problems and his family life is not harmonious, problems arising on account of children or wife.



Astrologically speaking, a person's natal chart does contain indicators for knowing the past and the future birth as well. In this post, I am writing on astrological factors to identify the past birth.


Varahamihira has given just one verse each for identifying past and future birth. But he has indicated that this issue has been dealt at length by seers of yore and one must know what they have said. On his part he gives only one verse on how to identify the previous birth.


Verse 25014, Brihat jathaka :-

"Guru, Chandra and Sukra, Ravi and Kuja, and Sani and Budha bring people from Devaloka, Pitruloka, Tiryagloka and Narakaloka respectively. According to the position of the lord of the Drekkana occupied by the most powerful of the sun or the moon, we have to predict the high, middle or low state of the man in his previous birth."


Based on Bhattaothpala's commentary for this verse, we have to first see the sun and moon in the rasi chart (D-1). We have to see which of these two is powerful.


Choose the powerful one among the sun or the moon and see its position in the D-3 (drekkana) chart. The lord of that house holds the key for poorva janma!


If such a lord in D-3 is Jupiter, predict that the person was in devaloka before being born on earth.


If such a lord in D-3 is Moon or venus, predict that the person was in Pitruloka, before being born on earth


If such a lord in D-3 is Sun or Mars, predict that the person was in Tiryagloka before being born on earth.


If such a lord in D-3 is Mercury or Saturn, predict that the person was in Narakaloka before being born on earth.


If such a lord is exalted or in benefic positions,

know that the person has enjoyed high status in that loka.


If debilitated or in malefic combinations, know that he had a degraded life there.



Now about the lokas:-



Devaloka is an exalted plane of existence peopled with souls in higher order of awareness and enlightenment.


Pitruloka is a plane where departed ones live before taking another birth. This plane is also higher than our plane of existence on earth.


Tiryagloka is a plane of inferior order where souls with evil karma have to reside.


Narakaloka is a plane of much inferior order, where souls having excessive evil karma in their backlog have to spend their time.



Another text on how to predict the previous birth is Phaladeepika by Manthreshwara.


In the 14th chapter there comes information on astrological pointers to know previous birth.

According Phaladeepika, the 9th house holds the key.



If the 9th lord in natal chart is exalted, the previous birth was in a high society of good people.


If the 9th lord in natal chart is in debility or in enemy's sign, the previous birth was in a different country.


If the 9th lord in natal chart is in his own house or in a friend's house, the previous birth was in the same country to which the person belongs. (Manthreshwara meant Bharatha varsha).


In such a case, if the 9th lord happens to be Jupiter, the person was born in Aryavartha – in the area between Himalayas and Vindhyas.


In such a case, if the 9th lord happens to be Venus or Moon, the person was born near Punya nadhis or sacred rivers such as Kaveri.


In such a case, if the 9th lord happens to be Mercury, the person was born near Kshethras of Gods like Vishnu or Shiva. (places such as Srirangam or Chidambaram).


In such a case, if the 9th lord happens to be Saturn, the person was born in Mleccha desa – outside Bharatha varsha.


In such a case, if the 9th lord happens to be Sun, the person was born in a place of forests and / or mountains.


In such a case, if the 9th lord happens to be Mars, the person was born in abandoned places or places where living was difficult.



Now about the kind of birth – whether as plant life or animal life:-


(The souls are born in four forms according to astrology and Hindu Thought – as devas, humans, animals and plant life.)


If the 9th lord is placed in Prishtodhya rasi that happens to be fixed sign, the previous birth was that of some vegetation.


If the 9th lord is placed in Seershodhaya rasi that happens to be movable sign, the previous birth was that of some living being, either animal or man.


If the 9th lord is placed in the signs of exaltation or own house or friend's house of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of a human being.


If the 9th lord is placed in neutral sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of an animal.


If the 9th lord is placed in an enemy sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of a bird.


In this way, the clues are given for finding out what we were in previous birth.

"A recent workshop helped participants solve present day problems by journeying into the past 'I DISCOVERED THAT I WAS A FAMOUS POET IN ONE OF MY EARLI- ER BIRTHS AND I STARTED WRITING.'"



My five -year -old daughter used to hang her dolls by their neck. When we sought an explanation to her peculiar behaviour, it was revealed she was humiliated and hung in front of the public in her past life," said a worried mother during the interaction session of Dr. Newton Kondaveti's past life regression and spiritual science workshop.


The workshop was scientifically moulded to understand the participant's past life through special sessions and analyse the purpose of their present incarnation on earth.


The session also aimed at removing the turbulent emotional problems, health issues and phobias that were affecting a person from her or his past.


Says V. Jayaraman, a financial software consultant, "I have been doing past life studies through books and various workshops throughout my life. The aspect of hypnosis fascinated me enough to dig deeper into its mystic aspect.


Dr. Newton's workshop is quite different though. He is more into the meditative feature of past life regression." Taking about his past life he says, "I was a cruel zamindar in one of my previous births who inflicted atrocities on people, for which I am now suffering with health issues." Voicing similar thoughts was writer Nandhini Murthy "To me, it is a part of the self discovery process. From a very young age, I loved poetry bu never attempted to pursue this passion.


However, when I discovered that I was a famous poet in one of earlier births so I started writing poems. Reflecting my mindset the poems are on the genre of mysticism." Dwelling a little about his own past life health issues that carried over into the present Dr. Newton explains, "I always had some kind of ailment in my abdominal region. Past life regression explained to me the reason. In my earlier birth as a Tibetan at the age of sixty, I was pronounced dead when alive and thrown to the vultures, as was the custom in Tibet.


The painful experience I had undergone being eaten alive was the cause of my abdominal miseries, the problem was solved after I discovered my past." The workshop also dealt on topics like karma, self-healing, emotion, and past-life talents carried over to the present birth among others. Says Dr.


Newton who with his wife Dr. Lakshmi founded the Life Research Academy in Hyderabad, "The purpose of such past life regression workshops are to make people understand the human body that is like a dress we wear and cast off. Just like one needs to remove weeds in the garden, one should know about the past to understand the future better."

Your past-birth karmas and Nadi Astrology


By Sri Siva


Karma is the metaphysical law of causality. It is comparable to the physical law of Newton: every action causes an equal and opposite reaction. You do something in this lifetime and it comes back to you in the next lifetime.


One's natal chart is clearly the representation of one's karma. For two decades I have been researching nadi astrology. The nadi astrological leaves are written by Siddhas and I have consulted almost all of them. The Siddhas use their intuitive ability to look into the past and future of the individuals. My case-study involves 500 people. My finding is that the future prediction is not 100% correct in all cases. It varies from person to person and the average accuracy ranges from 30 to 55 %. Why are not the Siddhas unable to predict 100%? I have put this question to the Siddhas themselves. The answers came and are interesting. They said that the clients who came with a sincere frame of mind got better results than the clients who were cynical. This is true in daily life. You become as you think.


If nadi leaves are not going to give the exact prediction is it any good to still consult them? The answer is ' yes'. The nadi is a great source of education. It links your past life with the present life and teaches you methods to change your life. For instance, if one had raped many women in his past life, he continues this habit in this lifetime also. Similarly if one had been a saint in previous life times, he comes back as a saint again. Once you identify what you had done in the past, then you can correct it in this lifetime. Again, from my own research I have found that people are unable to change their life-habits, even though I tell them in no uncertain terms what they need to do. For educational purposes I want to give a list of past karmas that produce situations in this lifetime, see table.

Remedies in Nadi Astrology


Nadi astrology offers remedies for all kinds of bad karma. This involves visits to certain temples, performing rituals like donation to saints, virgins, married women and others. The remedies are based on the karma that each one has done in their past lives. Another important remedy is worshipping the yantra of the planet properly energized. It is better to worship the yantra of the devata of the planet rather than the planet itself. Also, it is important to pay a visit to Suryanarkoil regardless of what your karma is. The unique nature of Suryanarkoil is that the planets here are devoid of their weapons. Mantras used in the temple also do not refer to their malefic qualities. According to tradition, Lord Siva commissioned planets to be benign at Suryanarkoil. (A detailed list of Navagraha (nine planets) temples mentioned in the Nadi and when and how to get there can be obtained from my Ashram in India.

What is D1 and D3? Could you please relate them with the south-Indian astrology chart with respect to the Lagna?

jayasree said...

D-1 is the rasi chart based on division of the zodiac into 12 parts of 30 degrees each.

D-3 is the Divison- 3 chart called Decanate or Drekkana. This is based on the division of a sign into 3 parts of 10 degrees each.

If a planet is in the first 10 degrees in a sign, then it is said to be in 1st drekkana and will be placed in the same sign in D-3 chart.

If a planet is in the second 10 degrees in a sign, then it is said to be in 2nd drekkana and will be placed in the 5th sign (from where it is in rasi chart)in D-3 chart.

If a planet is in the last 10 degrees in a sign, then it is said to be in 3rd drekkana and will be placed in the 9th sign (from where it is in the rasi chart) in D-3 chart.

There is no north - south difference in astrology with reference to these charts. Drekkana is one among the 16 divisional charts devised by Parashara. One can download Jagannath hora (jhora) and know for themselves their D-3 chart among the 6 divisional charts given in that.

Vakeesan said...

Hello there, call me sam. I'm into a bit of a unknown delima of seeing things in real life that scares me most of the time. Once, I saw me sleeping on my bed from the top position or like from the side upper position but there were 2 dark unknown but known like people pulling me out but I was refusing to go with them. suddenly I got up from my bed soked in pool of sweat. I see a lot of visuals passing me. can any one explain? I need more clarification, please advice.

jayasree said...

vakeesan,
yours seems to be due to imbalance in vata-pittha-sleshma.
Stomach disturbances, gastric problem, late night food etc can be the causes for such a dream.

Jijith said...

Dear Jayasree, I want the natal chart of a friend of mine to be interpreted. He is particularly interested in past life and also wanted to know the reason for some bitter experiences he had in this life and generally what is the prospect for his future. He is a writer by profession and writes historical novels based on mythology. Since I lack any expertise in astrology, it came to my mind that you could help. I have created his chart using an astrogy software.

Dear Jijith, please leave your email ID in the comment. I wont post it. I will contact you.
