Our life is always full of difficulties, problems and stress and strains. Keeping in view the busy schedule of people in present day life, this book contains easy and simple measures for protection from the malevolence of planets such as giving in charity things connected with such planets and prayers, recitation of mantras, fasting, wearing of gem stones etc.
The very simple, cheap and easy to perform remedial measures as given in the famous Urdu book 'Lal Kitab', have also been included in this book.
The diseases caused by the planets with reference to each Ascendant have been discussed and illustrated by horoscopes and remedial measures suggested in each case. The natural functions and nature of Sun, Moon and other planets and the evil they can cause if afflicted, has been described in sufficient detail to enable appropriate remedial measures being taken in time.
In brief, the material compiled in this book for protection from evil consequences of affliction of planets, is not only simple but also easy for practical use.
Astrology is not deterministic and it is given to man to change the course of events to avert the misery, agony and disaster threatened by evil influences of certain inauspicious combinations or dispositions of planets by taking appropriate remedial measures in time. This approach is quite scientific and is in accordance with the modern line of thinking. Man is, no doubt, a creature of destiny but he is not entirely or absolutely its slave. Man has some freedom of will and action also. If man has no such freedom how can he overcome his karma and attain salvation or how will his soul merge with universal soul. Thus it should be accepted that there is no place for fatalism in astrology. Fate and free will are two blades of a scissor and we still do not know which blade operates in cutting a paper. It is man's supreme duty to do his mite irrespective of results like a Nishkama Karmayogt. It is true that errors of judgement creep in when we are destined. Miscalculations occur and our reasoning faculty becomes inoperative and ineffective. The most important utility of astrology is to forewarn man to enable him to forearm himself to face troubles and calamities and to take steps in accordance with remedial principles of astrology to overcome or at least minimise the evil effects expected. To illustrate, if rain is inevitable and we cannot escape from it or avert it. either we don't go out or take steps to avoid getting wet by the use of a rain-coat or an umbrella. This is the precise scope and function of remedial measures in astrology.
"The law of karma is not stilling and one only gets what one sows, yet it provides options and allows room for the operation of free will. In other words it provides a system where action of a kind, though in the process of bearing results, can be manoeuvred into relatively less impactful effects. That is, a certain consequence, though bound to result out of a certain action, can be suitably amended to lose its sting. Not all causes attract the discount. Some do, some do not, yet others come partly under the relief. Remedial measures are a concomitant of this system" "As in law where there are compoundable and non compoundable offences, so also do we have planetary afflictions (arishtas or doshas) that are amenable to shanti (palliatives) and those that are not."
In this material world it is difficult to say that there is even one person who has no problems to worry him. A man may be loaded with millions or even billions but if he has no issues, or has no properly adjusted conjugal life, or is not enjoying good health, he cannot be really called a happy person. On the other hand, a man who has no money suffers from pangs of hunger and has no roof over his head is blessed with children but he cannot afford to feed and clothe them or get them educated. All these problems and maladies are the consequence of one's karmas in the previous birth or current life and if one has a birth chart, the problems he has to face are clearly skectched out in it in the form of planetary afflictions. And to mitigate and sometimes to nullify the consequences of evil affliction our learned and farsighted ancients gave birth to the concept of remedial measures. It is through the science of astrology that the planetary malevolence diagnosed and adequately gauged and efficacious, proven, and time-tested remedies like the use of gem stones (mani). mantras or tnvocations (under the vast ambit of Mantra come also Tantra and yantra), and medicine (Aushadhi),are taken. Yoga discipline and exercises are also included in this. These remedial measures generate forces in order to deflect the unhappy and evil influences which are likely to manifest as a result of malevolent configuration of the planets.
