My dear Hansadutta Prabhuji,
Please accept my humble obeisances. Eternal glory and praise for Shrila Prabhupada, the direct energy of Lord Shri Krishna. Many thanks for visiting me on the fifth of this month and I enjoyed, as ever, discussing Krishna consciousness with you from so many points of view. This is what Shrila Prabhupada wanted, sadhu-sangha and discussion of the glories of Krishna and His devotees such as the activities of our pure devotee spiritual master. I know that it is a long trip for you to visit me, and I deeply appreciate it. I must tolerate so many materialistic karmis each day...and a devotee's company is a rare blessing indeed.

When you came last, we discussed Vedic astrology and I made a prediction that came true in the few days following our last meeting. I predicted that a terrible event such as an earthquake would be soon taking place in the territory of "Old Bharat", an area of the Earth ruled by Virgo from Eastern Iran to Indonesia, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Bangladesh, Burma, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, etc. Two days after the prediction at our meeting Pakistan suffered its worst earthquake ever, a 7.6er centered in the nation's capital, Islamabad. In fact, this was that country's worst disaster ever, and the early death toll counted over 20,000 souls had been dispatched to Yamaraj. The prediction was based upon my research establishing that Virgo rules "Old Bharat" and that an eclipse in Virgo had occurred on the 2nd.

It is very tempting to self-aggrandize oneself in such a situation--that is, after making such a remarkably accurate prediction--but the fact is that credit must go to the science of Krishna-conscious astrology. If such a Krishna-conscious, no, Guru-conscious, science is understood as simply another Vedic science of the Bhagavat, then accurate predictions will be a foregone conclusion. The major influences of astrology are discussed in the leading edge scriptures of the Veda such as the holy Shrimad Bhagavatam Mahapurana, which Shrila Prabhupada spent every valuable breath making us understand, and the Ramayana, Padma Purana , etc. Therein, heavenly omens such as eclipses, comets and meteor showers, are given greater importance than mere planetary combinations (graha-yogas). Read the descriptions of Lord Rama entering the field of battle in the Ramayana, or Lord Varaha killing the incarnation Vijai, Hiranyaksha. Whereas eclipses foreshadowing the great battles are discussed, astrological combinations are not dealt with. These have already been dilated upon by no less a personality than Shri Parahsara Muni, the father of Shrila Vyasadeva Ji, the lliterary incarnation of God, in his Shri Parahsara Hora-Shastra, hence Sage Parashara is called the "father of astrology".

Some months back I gave you, Hansadutta Prabhuji, a copy of the Palani Panchang, which I helped Pandit Devendra Trivedi develop some twenty years ago, and have continued to write for over the years. I have always saluted your understanding of Vedanga Jyotish since it is based soley upon Shrila Prabhupada's teachings, and not some bogus, misleading so-called "astrologer" claiming brahman roots. So because you consult the stars in the panchang from time to time, you are quite aware when these major phenomenons are to take place, as well as changing nakshatras, tithis, solar and lunar months, etc.

When we met on the 6th of this month, you brought up the fact that we were in a period of time I have come to I call as the "abyss of two eclipses", the centerpoint that bisects two celestial events. Nervousness could be felt in the air, and it was so intense that it could have been cut with a knife. Before our last meeting, there had been an eclipse on the 2nd of October, a solar event in Virgo. This is a particularly inauspicious sign for an solar eclipse, since it is the sign preceding the Sun's debility in Libra. The solar eclipse "began" over Indonesia, and just a few days before it took place, a terrorist's bomb blast took the lives of dozens of tourists in Bali. Eclipse effects will be more strongly felt in places where they are visible and in those places that are ruled by the signs in which the phenomenon occur. I have concluded that a period of 45 days preceding and following eclipses are periods of EFI or "eclipse field of influence."

The Moon is waxing beautifully in the sky just now as I write, but it is a cursed cycle nonetheless, since the waxing Moon will culminate in an eclipsed full Moon in Pisces on the 17th of this month. In fact, the Moon will shift into the fiery, violent, Mars-ruled sign of Aries during the eclipse itself, a particularly unhappy augury. So this October eclipse cycle involves Virgo (earth), Pisces (water) and Aries (fire). Note that America, too, suffered a double whammy of "worst natural disasters ever" with the ravages of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita over the Gulf Coastal states. The earthquake in Pakistan occured during the rainy season, hence the mix of earth and water there also is obvious. Similarly, the mix of earth and water is seen as the Ocean God reclaimed its lands from inhabitants of outlying lands around New Orleans. Finally, rains caused by Hurricane Stan created the mud slide in Guatamela, which had been foreshadowed by the springing to life of an ancient volcano there (fire) in the first days of October.

I have proposed that eclipses be assigned names like comets and hurricanes, with masculine names going to the Solar events and lunar events being dubbed with feminine names. I have named the October 2nd eclipse of the sun as Eclipse Elmo and the lunar event of the 17th as Eclipse Eleanor. From a astronomical point of view, they were certainly not the longest, darkest events to ever blight the sky, but apparently their influences were nonetheless as devastating as any eclipse could be. The point of intesection between Elmo and Eleanor occurred on Sun the 9th as the headlines blared "Twenty Thousand Dead In Pakistan" and "Landslide in Guatamala buries an Entire Village of 1400". And the foolish, smug, demonic material scientists think that--in defiance of ancient wisdom of all cultures of the Earth--that eclipses can bear no effect!

Based upon my research, the following coming dates (give or take a few days) are delicate and might be crucial: 17 Oct, 2 Nov and 17 Nov. Eclipse cycles tend to end with a bang, that is dramatically. My body of research on eclipses will appear in book form sometime in November or December, and I welcome inquiries from serious students. My experience is that most astrologers simply use the science in a vainglorious attempt at self-glorification and thus diminish any iota of hope for developing genuine predictive skill. They band together like bleating goats in clubs and councils, but no accurate prediction (other than the expected and usual New Age sentimental, soppy mish-mash) emanates from the mix.

Therefore, I have undertaken my research in a thoroughly independent spirit, fully dependent upon Shri Guru's divine grace, and stand solely responsible for the outcome. I hope that this has met you in the best of health.

Your servant,
Shri Patita Pavana das Adhikary
