We live in an age in which people talk of biorhythms to be able to achieve the very best in the pursuit of their ambitions. What they have developed in the West is most elementary, most generalised and loose and more fanciful than useful.
Your biorhythm for a particular day, for a particular hour, for a particular activity is dependent solely and entirely on your janma nakshatra (your birth star).
Before I explain the extra-ordinary utility of the Panchapakshi theory as given by Prof Pulippani in this book, let me cart with the experience of Sri M.N. Kedar in the early part of 1991 when he had gone to Madras to attend a meeting of the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences after having got his return railway ticket booked for return journey from Madras to Delhi. Something went wrong somewhere and his name was not there on the reservation list at all. Mr. Kedar tried to contact the concerned railway officials but was not succeeding. Mr. Pulippani with whom Mr. Kedar was at the station, asked him, what was his janmanahshatra. The specific questions of Mr. Pulippani would have been (now that I have read the manuscript), I guess these:
Q. What is your janma nakshatra?
A. Purvasadha, because my Moon is in Dhanu in the nakshatra of Venus and I was born in the mahadasha of Venus.
Q. Was it shukla paksha (bright half) or krishna paksha (dark half)?
A. Dark half.
Your Pakshi (stellar bird fixed for this birth) is Owl.
Today is day. The time is your stellar bird is at the moment in the activity called dying Do what you may you will not succeed till But after your stellar bird will get into the other activity known as Walking You will succeed then effortlessly.
It was a conversation between two astrologers which is of significance because no one could have played a trick on each other. And neither Mr. Pulippani nor Mr. Kedar, both very honest astrologer friends would have been indulging either in a frivolity or even joking.
Back to Delhi, Mr. Kedar narrated the experience to us all and said that he got the railway reservation effortlessly exactly in the time duration of two hours and twenty four minutes on that day as specifically told by Mr. Pulippani who had looked at his tables of a book he had written in English on Panchapakshi.
Mr. Kedar could not explain to me anything more about this theory of Panchapakshi. But I immediately knew that it was the unfailing stellar theory of biorhythms specific to each individual, relatable to his birth-star and correlated to one of the five-fold divisions of a day for five specific human activities.
In these days when we talk of 'peak hours' of an individual's efficiency and use good deal of the borrowed jargon of the West in our plagiarised language of management why not utilise the most practical, down-to-the-earth, time-tested astrological techniques of biorhythms, specific to individuals, instead of loose mumbo-jumbo imported from the West?
In Vimshottari dasa major, sub and sub-sub periods we have our successes and failures and it is calculated on the basis of janma nakshatra. Cannot the same janma nakshatra be made use of for each of us for each day, for each hour, for each activity? It is so logical, so scientific, so appealing. And we know nothing about Panchapakshi in the North.
What should we do then?
Many opportunities came, one after another. First the decision to hold the first ever All India Astrological Conference of the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences in September 1991 in Delhi. Secondly, our decision to produce a souevinir on this occasion, (which turned out to be so good). Thirdly, we had a very valuable article on Panchapakshi by Prof. Pulipppani. Fourthly, we had a very illuminating lecture by him during the conference. And finally, his decision to hand over the English manuscript of his book on Panchapakshi to M/s. Ranjan Publications to make this knowledge available to astrologers outside Tamilnadu for the very first time.
Having given this introduction let me refer briefly to the features of the book.
1. PANCHA means five and PAKSHI means birds. All human beings are categorised under five birds - VULTURE, OWL, CROW, COCK and PEACOCK. This is fixed and is based on your birth-star.
2. Each bird, every day, is indulging into five activities- active (eating.), more active (walking) most active (ruling), inactive (sleeping) and then a total point of cessation of all activities. (Death)
3. Each day is divided into five divisions of two hours and twenty four minutes (yamas) and similarly night is divided into such five equal divisions (yamas). Six ghaties (twenty four minutes for each ghaty) is one yama.
4. Now since it is dependent on janma nakshatra you must find out if your birth is during the bright half of a month or a dark half of a month.
5. Then again all months are not uniformly good for all. It is obvious and will appeal to anyone's eommonsense that seasonal variations cause spurts of brilliant activities and spells of lassitude and in, activity.
6. Similarly all days, Monday and Tuesday etc., cannot be good and same for all. The ruling planet of the day, Mars, may be good for one Pakshi but not favourable for another.
7. Then there are holidays for each Pakshi. There must be a rest day for each Pakshi.
8. Then the night activities must have different patterns.
9. What about persons who do not know their Janma Nakshatra? It is solved in two ways: Find out the prominent vowel in their names. Each vowel in turn gets identified with a bird. All vowels are categorised into five. 10. Then there are five directions, east, west, north, south and centre again five.
The author has, after a research spread over nearly two decades, devised two thousand and five hundred entries under 100 tables for any human being anywhere in the world. This book is a ready reckoner for biorhythms for anyone in the world for any time of any day of any month for any individual anywhere in the world.
For experienced astrologers doing prasna (horary) astrology this material will be very useful for answering questions with specific results and specific directions.
Prof. Pulippani has agreed to our request that as soon as the book is available in print, he would come to Delhi and hold workshops for popularising the method through practical demonstration.
This will fulfil a long felt need of the busy people of Indian metropolitan cities- where diurnal activities, wrongly planned and wrongly timed, cause .more blood pressure than create opening for successful ventures. They will lie low when they should lie low and be active when they should be active according to the astrological-lunar biorhythms of their own because their janma nakshatra is specific to them only.
The Panchapakshi scheme, it appears, can be made use for the purpose of muhurtas (elections) if combined with the mahadasha, antardasha and pratyantar dashas of an individual's horoscope. But to do it, the first step would be to find our birth bird, which can be done, as shown here.
First find out the nakshatra number of your birth i.e. 1 for Ashwini, 2 for Bharani etc.
