ok we are on the verge of buying a house and someone mentioned it to my mother that make sure the house does not face directly West..if the sun sets on the side of the house its ok, but not directly in front of the main door.

NOw does anyone here have a house that faces West where the sun sets on the front????

If so, how long have u been living there and are you a happy family??

anyone else heard of this. I think this has to do with Chardi Kala v.s Shipdi Kala....who knows

help!

A word of caution against astrology and Vaastu would do no harm. They do not belong to rational, scientific thought process.

Vaastu and astrology have never been regarded as a science. They lack the basic attributes and tenets of pursuit of science. Scientific truths are universal and are not dependent on the whims and fancies of individuals whereas the practice of astrology/Vaastu in different parts of the world is varied. Astrology does not use the accepted scientific method of inquiry that is characterised by fallibility, verifiability and repeatability. It has never been supported by any scientific research or study conducted according to stringent scientific procedure. In fact, it has been conclusively demonstrated by well-designed investigations that astrological predictions are no better than random chance coincidences.

The choice in the end is upto each individual. It is now upto you as to how you want to buy your house...on the basis of certain individuals whose knowledge is questionable or what to you seems like a good deal? How you want to lead your life? On the basis of questionable charts and horrorscopes (sic) or belief in one akal purukh.

bhool chook maaf

Ok, so this is what i kno.... the reason why many superstitious hindus and some odd sikhs don't like their house facing west is because muslims face west towards the Mecca and they actually prefer if their house faces that way.... I know of a hindu family living in my cul de sac who built their house but didn't realize until 2/3's of it were finished and then they tried selling it... took them over a year to sell it...but thas what i've heard....

Thanks admin for the helpfull link.

Ok besides the obvious superstition thought, i was looking for a reason behind this direction orientation.

guv no that doesn't coutn, but thanks for the help :)

jsb..i think you are on to somthing, i will look into that.....loll

miri piri ji, there ARE astrological events such as the orientation of the planets that bring good and bad vibrations to those who are vulnerable according to their date of birth. Now what the gurus did was that they ignored that astrological view point which causes much mind stress and leads into greater difficulty as my mother is facing and trying to understand. They simply said, let all be whether good/bad taken in his will. "Tayra bhana mittha lugay". With that all the superstitions are removed and simply led into a single point under his will.

so you can take it either way. It just depends on how you are taught, one leads you into taking controll thru self-effort by trying to direct the bad vibrations, the other lets you surrender and let all that be under his will.

Pheena ji...i read your post just now. apologies for the belated reply. Please forgive me if I am wrong in understanding what you wrote. But did you mean that that gurus were also affected by astrology? So does this imply that the astrology was something which they could not control? Was this the reason that they chose to ignore it rather than deal with it??

If the answer to any of these questions is remotely yes then I beg to disagree with you. I think when the gurus talked of belief in one akal purukh and nothing more, they were submitting to rational thought. They made it clear not to depend on predictions based on planetary movements which can never be verified, checked and re-checked according to scientific norms.

bhool chook maaf.

no veer, that is not what i meant to say. The more you progress in your spirituality, the lesser vulnerable you become. The Gurus were a manifestation of Allah himself, so it would be childish and ignorent for us to say that they were affected by such trivial good/bad vibration that are delivered by the orientation of planets.

In my views i'd say 98-99% has to do with how your mind deals with such views. If you are a firm believe in such events, then surely your mind will expect such things to occur and sometimes even create a false sense of effects. If you are a firm believe that all is under his will, then it is just so, That 'ALL' is under his will. Reading Gurbani, Guru ji says that god himself protect his devotees from evil/bad things. Faith in God leads you more closer, than having faith in an Astrologer which leads you away. You become dependent upon the astrologer to lead you only thru the good events and defer the bad ones away thru the use of objects that shield you from the bad vibrations. Tho one thing to understand is that wearing those objects will not protect you 100%, it is like having an umbrella on a hot sunny day. So It would be incorrect to say that either paths are wrong, but it would be wise to follow that which leads you closer to divinity.

Waheguru.

Thank you Pheena ji for replying to my query with patience. I largely agree with all that you say. But am intrigued by the way you end your message. You do seem to admit that astrology is not the way to go about things. You do say that ideally faith in Him is all that a person needs to pass their life. Yet you stop short of saying that astrology is wrong. And end by saying that the ultimate aim is to find your own spirituality. Fair enough....each to his/her own. But don't you think that in matters as important as basing your decisions on certain set of principles one has to make a choice?

You don't really have to reply to this post, if you don't want to. I ask these questions knowning that the modern rationalist in me always identifies and segregates good from bad.. :? I do know that is not the only way to make choices.

bhain,

miri-piri
