Chennai based K.B.Gopalakrishnan
When I was young
and before I took to astrology I used to believe in the words of
Norman Vincent Peale, dale Carnegie and napoleon hill. I used to
think that just hard work and talent can help people to go places.
One can become what one wants. As the wheel of life moved, when
astrology became my full time profession and the ups and downs of
life helped me to appreciate karma, lineage karma and the eternal
wisdom of India. There is nothing wrong in concepts, ideas and models
based on the western concepts of hard work success etc. it has a
very limited application. As one evolves one come to the point of
higher understanding and then these ideas get expanded and evolved.
What I am sharing is the insight. I have paid heavy price in my
life. People who are close to me will understand what I am trying
There are two
types of lineage. One is positive lineage. The following broad based
pattern will be seen in these types of lineage. Some of the pattern
need not be seen in some lineages. Mostly 80-90% of the pattern
will fit in. In this elderly people will live long. Marriage and
child birth will happen in time and most of them will have male
children, families in terms of functions like marriage child birth
will be helpful for each other, there will be exchange of money
ideas and contacts, the elder’s punya will be guiding source
of light. Money earned will be saved and multiplied, houses and
vehicle purchase will happen easily. Education will be good, people
will have very good values and most of them will be interested in
god, religion and higher principle of consciousness, Dana will be
In the negative
lineages fighting will be common, the cooperation among family members
will be lowest, fights in functions will be common, elders will
die early, many people will have one parents or some of them will
be chronic diseases like mental illness, marriage and child birth
will be late and some of them will not get married or will not have
children. Most of them will have girl child, education and teenage
problem will be common. Elders will be restless and old age will
be filled with pain and power struggle with children. Money will
be wasted and spending on illness and court case will be common.
Many people will not have proper jobs and those who proper jobs
will not have children or marriage.
One does not
require any brilliance or extra ordinary ability to be moderately
successful. If one is in the upward cycle in a lineage then the
person will be successful. That is why in many lineages people are
naturally successful and in some lineages person have problem.
lineage can be taken as a team. Some people work on marriage, some
people work on education, some people work on spiritual side, some
people work on the health side.
I am good in astrology. In my mother’s side many people have
good knowledge in astrology. My grandfather and grandmother both
paternal and maternal side were very spiritual. They did not make
huge amount of money. They did pooja , japa and lead a life of spiritual
success. This means they worked for the spiritual side of lineage.
One of uncle was a school head master. His work has helped many
people to get educated in the lineage. I know families were everyone
is a post graduate and the grandfather had built a school.
This is a very
crucial aspect forgotten by the so called success gurus. What people
failed to understand is no matter what ever hard work some people
put they will never make that kind of money. For example Dhirubai
Ambani makes more money than most of the people. Just that system
favors them and many people work for them so that they can make
more money. Their ancestors must have been blessed by the saints.
or millionaires are born. They are not made and if they are made
it is due to punya of the ancestors. Most people are sincere and
work very hard. Why do not they make money like nandan nilekani
or Narayana moorthy?
parents and ancestors must have done some very good punya in their
life. If life is viewed as whole then many puzzles and answer will
look very easy. One needs higher perception to understand it.
take the family of kamalahasan. Many of his family members are actors,
actress, writers and directors. In the same way take the case of
most industrial houses, most of their family members are business
There is ascension
cycle, dissension cycle and middle cycle. To give example my grand
mother build the current house in which I live, but she did not
enjoy it fully. I did not put money or help in building the house.
Yet I enjoy the full house with out working for it. My grandmother
was in the ascension cycle and I am in the middle cycle where all
the benefit is passed on with out me working for it.
members can pull down the energy of the lineage by fighting bickering
or acting abusively. Learn to bless them. Pray for them. This will
stop the energy from moving downward.
I have seen
many people boasting that they have done all evils and they get
away with it. This is because the lineage’s good karma protects
them. Their action will affect the lineage .
can destroy the good punya. They can screw up the lineage money
by taking bribes, fraudulent behavior and cheating. They can get
away with it because the lineage karma protects them. Eventually
they will pay for their deeds to gain higher understanding. Some
people are so wicked they get away with it because of there lineage
chief minister karunanidi of Tamilnadu who is very strong atheist
and does not believe in god or in higher existence will find it
very difficult in life to understand the esoteric knowledge. In
fact entire lineage will have problem with subtler reality of life.
Of course one does not understand and lives in ignorance for everything
looks hunky dory. They have money, power, fame, and everything is
going good. But religion spirituality, higher truth will be denied
for long time to the lineage members. He has spoilt the marriage
cycle by marrying many times etc. If one views esoterically then
his crown charka will be small. Spiritual cord will be thin like
For example Afghanistan sells opium and also fights with the whole
world. Women refuse to marry terrorist so they are forcing women
to marry. They also have to fight with the whole world. There is
highest infant mortality death in the world. Education is very low
though they are high in certain facet of religious value.
If one sees
the history of Afghanistan they have looted India many times by
the ghoris, ghaznis, balbans etc. now if you see Afghanistan is
so poor they have to do harm to make money. See in the same way
the Arab country is only a desert yet there are rich. Marriage cycle
in Afghanistan is screwed up. There is lot of homo sexuality because
the afghans use to rape the women when they entered the town or
village after the battle. In fact the famous rajput princess padmini
who was wife of rana sanga did sati which means jumped in to the
fire when the armies of the afghan king allaudin khiiji entered
in to mewar, effectively the wheel life of life grinds. Just that
god has to bless every one with higher understanding.
prime is due to curse of the many mothers who must have lost their
children due to mindless battle in Iraq.
How did I come
to this insight? Some one asked me why I pray so much. I said my
life has bigger problems than others. That is the reason. I have
done every kind of prayer to have a child, visited most of the temples,
used to do prayer every day for the baby, and whomever I gave mantra
or did pooja had children. With out elaborating I exceeded my levels
and capacity in the prayer for having a child.
I prayed so much to have a child. Really prayed so hard. Then one
day this insight came like a flash of lighting. My paternal grandfather
one was a lawyer and maternal grandfather was a jailer. I think
it sums up what kind of karma they must have done. My brother suffers
from schizophrenia. we used to have so much fighting among family
members. Many of the ladies are divorced. Some of the son in law
have committed suicide , many people do not live as husband and
wife. Many of them do not have children. Cursing and boasting is
a common thing during religious function. My uncle 70th marriage
was boycotted by his own brother and sister.
u read the article please pray for me to have a child. Though I
have been blessed with a baby girl who is very sweet, may my own
story be inspiration for greater understanding and travel the path
of good karma. Do not feel sorry for me. When you go to the temple
please pray for me to have a son of my own.
This is written
on 11th day of my mother’s death.
Thanks for reading.
I dedicate this merit to my family for the birth of a son and also
solving the issue of birth of children in my lineage.
