Listening, Speaking and Altruism (Self)

Just spent my weekend trying to have a conversation with my son who is distracted when in his school.  I think this is one of the most difficult task to do for any parent. I think I am able to communicate with my son.. but getting a point across is a tough thing. I have been trying to get his screen time to a minimum as it helps him focus for longer duration of time for his studies, otherwise he want's a break and have his screen time. I frequent and have an TED app on my phone. As you know there are lot of good minds who speak in these events.  ( links below are from for the content published by TED)

So I did a bit of research and found that  
  1. If we can listen 
  2. Can speak in a way other will listen 
  3. Let altruism be our guide.. 
We will be lot happier, smarter and joyful in life.. 

Following are the 3 videos that I asked my son to watch and tasked  him to explain what he thought .. we did a bit of search in the dictionary to understand what words meant in the videos. I would say the following 34 minutes will be worth every minute of your time (Link in the bottom for meditation if you are interested in it)

1) How to speak so that people want to listen ( ~10 minutes)
2) 5 ways to listen better( ~8 minutes)

3) How to let altruism be your guide( ~16 minutes)

Graha Yuddha ( Planetary War) in Astrology

Graha Yuddha in Vedic Astrology is term used for as a Planetary war between two planets. Planetary war occurs when two planets are within one degree of each other, either in the same sign or in adjacent signs. the planets which hold lower degree is winner and the planet which have high degree is loser. Graha yuddha can be happen in only in five planets; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. All planets are moving in their own (elliptical) path around Sun. During rotation when they come on top of each other as seen from earth in their own orbit. Due to the distance from earth it look like these planets are together, even though in reality they are separated by large distance, but their rays affects each other. This phenomenon is termed ‘Graha Yuddha’ or ‘planetary war. Sun, Moon, Rahu and Ketu are never at war with any planet. Close conjunction with Sun causes Combustion while that of Moon is known as ‘Sam agama’.

Depending on various factors, defeated planets lose their power and not able to produce good results. The defeat planet (especially as Ascendant lord) can suffer dramatically.  Losing its power as house lord and as (significator) karaka over matters it rules.  The house in which this phenomenon occurs is destroyed and the individual suffers  This condition can also be observed with transiting planets.

In Astrology Text there are four types of planetary war depending on their longitude e.g, Bheda, Ullekha, Amsu Mardana and Apasavya.

1. Bheda: When two planets in a same direction and overlapping, they fight in Bheda (occultation). In this case the planet nearer to us on earth completely obstructs the farther one. This is also known by the name Chandanam (occultation)

2. Ullekha: When the rims of two planetary touch each other but does not overlap, it is called Ullekha. In other words, when the graha-bimbas (discs) of planets seem to touch each other (sparsha) it is called Ullekha. This is also known by the name Rodhanam (obstruction)

3. Amsu-mardana: When the rays of two planets appear to clash each other, it is known as Amsu-mardana. Another name for this kind of planetary war is Kirana sanghatana (clash or rays) and yet another name is Rashmi-mardana (clash of rays)

4. Apasavya: When a planet's disc, covering each other moves south (in opposite direction, in retrograde motion), Apasavya occurs. This is also known by the name Apasavya
Base on the significance (karaka) and house rulership of the will suffer or gain accordingly.
Suppose one planet defeats another planet. This means that the people will give problems to other people and the leaders represented by the losing planet will suffer.

Example: if Venus and mars have conjunction and if Venus have more degree than Mars and Venus will be defeated in planetary war by Mars. the person will suffer in all Venus stuff like relationship, women, love, and creativity. The person will be have more martian energy and can be aggressive and good fighter.
