For those who observe the fast religiously and regularly
The great Indian yogi Paramahamsa Yogananda said, “Man is born on that day and that moment when his individual fate is in perfect mathematical harmony with the progress of the stars in heaven”. How the planets are placed in ones horoscope at the time of birth determines the good and bad effects of ones life and the time of their effect. In every horoscope some planets are well placed and some are badly placed. Hence we go through success and failures, happiness and sorrows in various aspects of life in different time slots in varying degrees. Certain planetary conflagrations give rise to strong negative effects called “Doshas”. The Vedic scriptures and the astrology scriptures prescribe various poojas to ward off the negative influence of the planets and to improve the benefic effects.
