Dear Members of the Bhakthi group : Both Sri Jaganathan in the note below and Sri Srinivasa of Cincinaati in a separate note to me clarified a point that I had jumped over for brevity, when I was referring to Yezharai Naattu Sani(7-1/2 year time ) . Sri Srinivasa"s observations are as follows : " The Sani Dasa and the seven and half year's transit are different -- Sani Dasa is for a fixed period of 19 years( I do not know the exact duration ). 7-1/2 sani occurs for a Rasi,when the Saturn enters the zodiacal sign previous to the Rasi . Saturn approximately stays 2-1/2 years in each zodiacal sign . So , the 7-1/2 years Sani period ends after Saturn leaves the zodiacal sign next to rasi. For example , Kumbha Rasi natives are runnig 7-1/2 years Sani . For Kumbha Rasi People , the sade sati (as North Indian astologers call it ) started from 1990 or 1991." ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- From: INTERNET:Jaganath.Bharadwaj@nrecatao.nreca.org, INTERNET:Jaganath.Bharadwaj@nrecatao.nreca.org TO: OM, INTERNET:BHAKTI@LISTS.BEST.COM DATE: 11/1/96 8:46 AM RE: Shanipriya Sender: firstname.lastname@example.org Received: from lists1.best.com (lists1.best.com [126.96.36.199]) by dub-img-6.compuserve.com (8.6.10/5.950515) id IAA16050; Fri, 1 Nov 1996 08:38:21 -0500 Received: (daemon@localhost) by lists1.best.com (8.6.12/8.6.5) id FAA18626; Fri, 1 Nov 1996 05:28:41 -0800 Message-Id: <199611011328.FAA18626@lists1.best.com> From: Jaganath.Bharadwaj@nrecatao.nreca.org Subject: Shanipriya Date: Friday, 1 November 1996 8:28am ET BestServHost: lists.best.com Sender: email@example.com Errors-To: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com He is the Lord of Makara and Kumba raasis according to the Jyothisha Saastram doctrines. When one has sani Dasai , it is a difficult period and --maximum 7 and half years-- and one waits for a considerable period of time to get out of it. I think Sani Dasai is actually a period of 19 years. The period Sri Sadagopan is referring to is called YEzhu Nattu Shani or something like that. Whether any Dasai is good or bad depends on the position of Shani in the horoscope, and also upon what is termed as good or bad. When my wife was in India and broke her leg, everyone thought that she was going through a very bad time. She thought that this was the best excuse to sit and read books about Sriman Narayana.
