Astrological Readings — Clearwater Beach
Saturday, May 4, 2019
May 4th was a very memorable day. There was an incredible Ratha yatra at Clearwater Beach in Florida. For those of you who don’t know what a Ratha yatra is, it is the Festival of Chariots! It is the day Lord Jagannath, his brother Balaram, and their sister Subhadra leave the temple and go out among the people. They shine their mercy on everyone and grant bliss and happiness. This festival, dating back thousands and thousands of years, is originally from the town of Puri in India. Now it is held all over the world! This beautiful red, green, and yellow cart, 30 feet tall with wheels taller than most men, beautifully decorated was pulled by the devotees and everyone around the beach who wanted to, across the sand and water at Clearwater Beach. Hundreds of people were singing beautiful kirtan and pulling the ropes to move the cart. Everyone who saw Jagannath was amazed, many beachgoers joined the kirtan and danced in bliss for Jagannath. Afterward, there was a wonderful free vegetarian feast for all, along with entertainment at the pavilion.
I had an astrology table set up as part of the program to give anyone interested a glimpse of how our life is really predestined through our past actions and a window into who they really are. The response was phenomenal! My wife, aka, my secretary, spoke to all the passers about perhaps getting an astrological reading done. So many stopped in for readings.
This was so exciting for me. I really love helping people and this was an opportunity just for that. A young man, about 25 years old came by. He was not too interested but decided to give it a try. The first thing he said when he sat down with me was that he was incredibly skeptical and didn’t believe in this stuff — not too a surprising! I hear that all the time and I always say, “try it, you will be very surprised.” As I began interpreting his chart, I told him his personality, his past chaotic life, his current dilemmas, and what the future held for him. He sat silent the whole time. I always tell people to please stop me if they have any questions. So it was unusual that he was silent. When I was finished he said, “I am just stunned! You are really freaking me out. You have told me my exact personality and entire past exactly.” This boy was just exploring spiritual life and I was so glad to give him this insight to help guide his very bright future on the spiritual path.
A lady in her 30s sat down for a reading, very pleasant and never had a reading done before. Naturally, she was unsure of what to expect. She asked a few questions about karma then we began her reading. The first prominent thing I saw in her birth chart was that she was deeply estranged from her daughter and told her this. Shocked that a total stranger would know this, tears began to flow, she opened up and explained her family difficulties. I shared the philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita with her and she left with tears in her eyes, grateful to have some deeper understanding of this material world and our place in it.
Another astounding story is of these two ladies, of which one wanted a reading and the other was very skeptical. They were actually sisters. As I studied her chart, the one very important thing I noticed was that her other sister might have colon cancer. They both were shocked. They said that just recently their older sister was complaining of stomach issues. I told them that they really need to ask her to check the issue out soon. The skeptical one was convinced. She also wanted her chart read. It’s such a good feeling as a physician to be able to use this science to find an illness that may be fatal, shedding some light on it, early enough, so that people can look into it and take care of it. Praying that all goes well!
