Pancha-pakshi Shastram





Pancha-pakshi Shastram

The mysterious " Panch-pakshi Shastram " is a unique system of Vedic astrology, propounded by ancient Tamil Siddha Saints thousands of years ago, which has been considered a golden key in the hands of man which can be used with advantage in any endeavour and in any walk of life.
The system is said to be 'unfailing' as it is based on natural laws of five elements Pancha bhutas combined with Jothida kalasasana force of each individual. It's extra-ordinary the man precise knowledge of his strength and weakness for a particular hour of a particular day. In day to day life and by individuals in all walks of life, to lead a successful life with complete gratification, both in mental, physical and even in spiritual planes. This is based on comparative gradation of elemental vibrations of individuals functioning in life in different ebbs during different time gaps with a uniform successive time slots.
The Jothida kalasasanam say about that, The Indian Astronomy sage also found that elemental vibrations differentially function in 5 ways during the periods of waxing and waning Moon cycles in 5 different gradations. The horoscope of an individual is the representation of the imprint of the cosmic vibrations emanating from the peculiar pattern of the nine planets at the time of one's birth.
This collective imprint remains in the sub-conscious always after one's birth. Being controlled/ directed by this imprint, the individual is helpless, but to live in a peculiar individual way accordingly. If we can identify the basic laws behind formation of this imprint and the functional pattern of our elemental vibrations,
we can adjust ourselves and function in such a way so that our indulgence in any action during a time-situation, whenever elemental vibrations are at the highest ebb, we will be crowned with Greatest success. This is the called " Panchapakshi ".
As per this system, 24 hours from one sunrise to next sunrise, consists of 10 Yama – 5 yama during day time and 5 yama during night time. Thus Yama is a name given to a duration of 2..4 hours as per this system (Different systems assign different duration for a `Yama'. Actually Yama just means `Duration'). Actually it is the five elemental vibrations that are personified birds (Pakshis). The 5 birds that does some or the other activity in each of these 5 time slots are
1) Vulture 2) Owl 3) Crow 4) Hen 5) Peacock
The five activities these birds participate in are
1) Eating 2) Walking 3) Ruling 4) Sleeping 5) Dying
The functional patters of the birds and activities vary, during waxing and waning  Moon cycles, and also during week days. Therefore to know the Yama bird and its activity, you should have a detailed table that lists the same.

Meaning of each activity

            As per the book `Biorhythms of Natal Moon', the meaning of each activity is as follows –
  • Eating – This activity is nothing but renewal of the body cells, and thereby renewal of functions is thus effected
  • Walking – To eat, bird has to be earning. For earnings movement is necessary. This movement is walking activity
  • Ruling – The process of earning itself is the activity of ruling.
  • Sleeping – After eating, walking and ruling, the system gets exhausted due to prolonged exertion resulting in the need to relax. This relaxing process is the sleeping activity.
  • Dying – By repeated process of these four activities frequently, the body in which the soul resides, completely degenerates and reaches an extreme point when functioning of these four activities is no more possible. At this stage, the soul departs from the old body to take rest and enter into another new suitable body by way of reincarnation. This is called the activity of dying and the cycle again begins.

Method of Application

  • Find the bird corresponding to your birth star
  • Check the activity in which the bird indulges in the desired period of time
  • This will give you an idea about your general state at that time and the trend of the result. For example, if ruling time then definitely expect positive result, if dying time then total negative results.

Know your bird

Now You can identify your bird from the following table given blow. You can call it birth-bird or elemental-bird, similar to the word birth-star.
Now check the day of the week as well as whether it is bright or dark half of Moon cycle. Based on this info check the activity in which your bird is indulging at that period of time. Similar to the Dasa-Antara system, you can check the bird of sub-activity as well. The current activity in which your bird is indulged in along with bird of sub-activity for that period of time will give you an idea about the trend of possible results for that period of time. [To have a detailed table on the same refer to the tables given in the book `Bio-rhythms of Natal Moon']. This is the system of Pancha Pakshi Sastra in nut shell.
