The most revered spiritual leader and head of Shri Swaminarayan Hindu Mission (BAPS), Pujya Shri Pramukh Swami Maharaj, graced Sri Sathya Sai Super Speciality Hospital, Kalawad Road, Rajkot with a visit last Sunday. The holy man saw for himself how this renowned establishment offers free facilities and services and was impressed by how it lives up to its ‘Service to Man is Service to God’ motto. He proceeded to give his personal attention to every section of the hospital and showered his blessings upon the medical staff, patients and members of the hospital trustee group.

Very expensive heart surgery and modern treatment is available at Sri Sathya Sai Hospital no cost – regardless of any ability to pay. Every patient is seen as ‘Narayana’ – God in human form.

His Holiness showed great interest in every aspect of the work being carried out and went through the administrative offices, operation theatre, Intensive Care Unit, and met those awaiting and undergoing treatment as well as those who had already been operated upon. This gave him an over all picture of the institution and its workings. He also met dignitaries and senior surgeons and showed how pleased and impressed he was with what he had seen and heard.

He then visited the Prayer Hall and offered flowers to the image of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, whose divine message has inspired the foundation of the hospital and other major social projects throughout India and, indeed, the world.

‘This auspicious visit by such a unique spiritual personality as Pramukh Swami Maharaj is truly momentous and an inspiration to do even more’ were the sentiments expressed by the Hospital Managing Trustee, Kanubhai Patel and Joint Managing Trustee, Manojbhai Bhimani.

Shri Pramukh Swami Maharaj is the inspiration behind the creation of over 650 temples worldwide and heads an organisation which promotes social awakening, education and service to the community. Bochasanvasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha is a progressive and very active movement with several million followers throughout the world.

Sathya Sai Baba’s Horoscope

Sathyanarayana, later known as Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born on 23 November 1926, early morning, before sunrise. The Indian calendar calculates the day as starting from sunrise. So the day, according to Indian calendar was between Monday the 22nd and Tuesday the 23rd. The occidental calendar marks it as Tuesday 23rd, which has been accepted as the Birthday of Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

His horoscope shows all aspects of a Mahapurusha. There is a conjunction of four planets in the Lagna (ascendant). They are the rising Sun, the Moon, Venus and Mercury. The Lagna has touches of Libra but the predominant aspect are of Scorpio. (Shuka Naadi says, ‘Born in Vrucchika (Scorpio) Lagnam, possessing the power of eight Siddhis’…. ).

Most important aspect of the horoscope is the characteristic of Vipareeta Raja Yoga (Sudden unexpected turning to fame and success). The Sun is in the ascendant, signifying everything related to Dharma, God, rituals, worship etc. Symbolic merging of Sun and Mars connotes a spirit of determination and self confidence. He assures devotees, “My Sankalpa will prevail”.

Saturn in association with the 9th Lord, assures great fame and endearing qualities. The planetary conjunctions also ensure appeal to the masses and longlasting fame, in spite of criticism and opposition.

His short stature and red robes are considered to go with the nature of Mars, the Lagna Lord. Meticulous care to personal appearance and dress, luxuriant curly hair are all attributaed to the Sun, Venus and Saturn combination. Aspects of Mars are seen in slender waist and curly shining hair. His Soumya (plesing nature) is typical of Scorpio.

Astrologers predict that after 1980, Ketu Dasa will commence for Him, when people will witness miracles surpassing previous phenomenion. After 1982, there may be a revealation, similar to 1940. After 1985, crucial events will show His great powers.
