"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.
The creative mind plays with the objects it loves."

"My political ideal is democracy.
Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized.
It is an irony of fate that I myself have been the recipient of excessive admiration and reverence from my fellow-beings, through no fault, and no merit, of my own.
The cause of this may well be the desire, unattainable for many, to understand the few ideas to which I have with my feeble powers attained through ceaseless struggle.
I am quite aware that for any organization to reach its goals, one man must do the thinking and directing and generally bear the responsibility. But the led must not be coerced, they must be able to choose their leader.
In my opinion, an autocratic system of coercion soon degenerates; force attracts men of low morality...
The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the political state, but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd as such remains dull in thought and dull in feeling. ...
"This topic brings me to that worst outcrop of herd life, the military system, which I abhor...
This plague-spot of civilization ought to be abolished with all possible speed. Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -- how passionately I hate them! " [end quote]

QUOTATION from Tenzing Gyatso
" Those training in great love should forsake self-centeredness and engage in the Buddha's practice, the root of which is compassion.
You may be thinking, Love is indeed very profound, but I do not have the skill to practice it; I will focus my efforts on practices aimed at getting myself out of cyclic existence instead.
Even if you cannot actually implement the practices of love and compassion, merely hearing about them establishes powerful predispositions for future success.
This can be amplified by planting prayer-wishes aspiring to altruism.
It is particularly important to do the best you can."

" Let us take the 5th house as another example.
It shows intelligence, following, devotion etc.
The 5th house in D-20, the chart of religious activities, shows one's devotion (bhakti) in religious activities.
A5 in D-20 shows the things based on which the world forms an impression about one's devotion.
So A5 shows them.
The 5th house in D-10, the chart of career, shows the following one has.
In D-24, the chart of learning, the 5th house may show intelligence.

Not only the native, but also his sons, will be intent on earning wealth."
the native will be endowed with comforts

" The children born to woman are her qualifications

How and where does the native express one's experience of creative intelligence, royal entitlement, theatrical genius, and brilliance in games?
vidya-pati-5 = an agent of romance, poetry, entertainments, and delight.
Putra bhava is a svabhava- of Surya, the king. vidya-pati-5 activities tend toward self-centered expression of personal uniqueness, including
vidya-pati-5 expresses confidence -
whether true confidence (faith in the divine) or a rather more mundane confidence in the personal ego assertions of self-righteous entitlement.
If vidya-pati-5 is a dominating graha
If vidya-pati-5 is not over-powering,
Divine Intelligence, poetry, romantic idealism, children, brilliance, gamesmanship, showboating, sowing off, fame, glamour, royalty, celebrity, entitlements, centrality, bright lights, ego, performance arts, politics, literary genius, theatre, creativity, fashion, self-expression, independence, scholarship, ingenuity, selfishness, autocracy, autonomy, self-reflexivity, self-reference, self-evident truth, entertainment, amusement, gambling, games, gambits, speculative investment, good luck, confidence
Matters of the bhava- occupied by vidya-pati-5 may produce acts of genius or self-will .
An instinct toward creative expression including both procreative (making fleshly children) and spiritually creative (making performance art and literature) inhabits the bhava.
One may feel blessed and fortunate to possess the intelligence necessary to express one's higher will .
The vidya-pati-5 is by nature positive and confident.
Das comment WRT //The lord of the 5 has at least one beneficial placement attribute.//
" Your children may become very wealthy and fortunate. You will be very powerful, do well and will be a friend of highly paced people. You are intelligent and educated. You will have many people who listen to your advice."
Das commentary WRT "The lord of the 5
" A variation of "Daridra" Yoga is present in your chart. At times you will experience some poverty or financial difficulties. This is a common and general combination that many people have, and it accounts for the general type of troubles that come and go in most of our lives."
Das commentary WRT // The lord of the 5 has at least one beneficial placement attribute. //
" Your children may become very wealthy and fortunate.
You will be very powerful, do well and will be a friend of highly placed people.
You are intelligent and educated.

The royal court provides best opportunities for creative learning [Surya] that is not constrained by the fears of the common people [Shani] .
Autocratic expressions of the royal court's charismatic authority include
As the sthāna of divine love (not marriage duties, only poetic love!) Surya's svabhava signifies primarily the deepest loves of all: infinite love of God and unconditional love of one's children.
Thus putra profiles the wellsprings of creativity, which flow forth in spiritual practice, literature, poetry, arts, cultivated exquisitry of life at court, and romance.
Other aspects of courtly life are included in the portfolio of bhava-5. E.g., parties and celebratory social gatherings, opportunities to express one's intelligence and wit, brilliant performances, ambassadors and ministers, various forms of amusements, (where the Muse is present), speculation, games and competitions of all kinds.
www.etymonline.com = English etymology of "king"
or from a related root suggesting "noble birth," making a king originally "one who descended from noble birth."
the sociological and ideological implications make this a topic of much debate.
Mantra, Tantra, Siddhi, and Sacred Arts
Putra [Skt] child [Eng]
Finding one's children in the chart -
count the emotional relationship with each child from Chandra lagna:
count the material relationship with each child (physical body, finance etc) from kundali indriya-lagna
For a fuller profile of each child, also count children
Bhaga = Luck
During Vimshottari dasha period s of graha which occupy bhava-5, some type of"luck" or surprising, delightful, enchanting fortune is expected.
" Luck"arrives in the form that is dictated by the natural characteristics of the graha as well as the graha's temporal bhava lordship.
(malefic) Ketu-Meena/5 will provide good luck and broader access to knowledge from dhanapati-2 + vidya-pati-5 Prosperous Guru, but the circumstances will involve some type of Ketu-style disconnection and abandonment.
(benefic) Guru-Tula -5 may provide good luck from yuvati-pati-7 +karmesha-10 Compassionate Leader Guru. However, the circumstances will involve some type of large-scale responsibility which may seem a bit overwhelming at first.
Odd types of luck
When the fifth lord is positively disposed, one may have good luck in games of chance. Compulsive gamblers may be seen with Rahu-Ketu in putra or dharma bhava, or Rahu-Ketu with ruler of bhava- 5 .
However, one's personal profits or losses from"playing" these funds are determined by putra bhava and its attributes.
Advice for the day:
If you have a lot of tension and you get a headache, do what it says on the aspirin bottle:
" Take two aspirin" and "Keep away from children"
The astrological picture of *genius * as expressed through children, artistic talent, creativity, or speculation (gambling) is expanded by noting:
Counting by Conceptions rather than live births
A word to the wise:
Sometimes the mother consciously connects with the spirit of a failed pregnancy and sometimes she does not.
Each house lord residing in putra bhava will strongly mark the fate and character of the childrenr.
Putra bhava is the svabhava ofthe Sun, karaka for Self.
The most basic form of self-expression is procreativity, producing and/or raising children that resemble one physically, psychically, morally, or intellectually. The alternative or next level is creativity in the arts. Putra bhava contains the profile of the full range of self-expression through the literary, fine, plastic, and performance arts.
However, the principle of bhavat bhavam , negative effects of a strong karaka in its own house , says that too much creative power in the dramatic or fine arts will usually deny or reduce children.
Major performance artists will tend very much toward childlessness or a single child, unless they can arrange surrogate parents like housekeepers or nannies to actually raise their children.
Childlessness is most simply known through an unproductive position of the 5th lord.
Suta bhava signifies "intelligence" .
One definition of 'intellect' is 'the faculty by which humans can assess thoughts'.
Rashi, graha, and drishti upon bhava-5 will define the scope of creative intelligencer.
bhava-4 = the socialization level of education.
bhava-5 = individual intelligence.
Many of the world figures featured in these Jyotisha pages will indeed have distinctive qualities in bhava-5; this self-selection is the result of their already having become famous!
A strong bhava-5 gives the power not simply to own information as a form of property (bhava-4) but it gives the native the capacity to create new understandings, new meanings, and new expressions of the culture as it moves forward into higher levels of civilization.
Clearly bhava-5 generates children, who create precisely this forward movement into new ways of living. bhava-5 grants a speculative intelligence, an ability to see knowledge in the abstract and reason with it philosophically, as an abstraction or"idea" rather than as a fixed quantity of information bound into a cultural tradition.
The specific graha in bhava-5 and the vidya-pati-5 will show the nature of the intelligence.
bhava-4 properly rules education: that basic socialization which allows us all to get along. bhava-4 contains the entire portfolio of home, mother, emotional security, and social security. A good basic socialization, usually accomplished by the mother and very predominantly female early-education teachers, teaches children how to treat others properly.
After the fundamental moral education is accomplished in bandhu bhava, the native is equipped to set out upon the world stage.
Tula indriya-lagnais known to create famous statesmen, because Shani the graha of discipline and practice, rules both bhava-4 and bhava-5. When [Yogakaraka] Shani is dignified for Tula-lagna, sustained creative ability in large-scale governance arises from the blessed combination of strong family foundations giving emotional security, plus strong personal intelligence giving genius.
bhava-5 creative fathering
vs. bhava-10 punitive fathering
" ... Autor father, from O.Fr. auctor, from L. auctor ..."enlarger, founder,"
lit."One who causes to grow ," ... from augere to increase (see augment)."
Celebrity through authority, as well as through notoriety, especially as gained through publication or through politics, is seen in putra bhava representing speculative creativity and fame.
bhava-5 version of 'authority' is not to be confused with the 'authority-figure' leadership roles of bhava-10.
In bhava-5, svabhava of brilliant Ravi, the native enjoys 'authorship', through publications of authoritative scholarship (which is then celebrated as an expression of divine intelligence) or by writing or performing works of high civilization, such as marvelous dances, theatrical plays, or musical compositions. This type of authority derives from the sacred sense of father as in Holy Father, the source of divine intelligence.
In bhava-10 = svabhava of dark and punitive Shani, authority is more of the social-control variety. karma-bhava represents the authority to impose laws, to maintain order, to enforce conformity, to make executive decisions which affect large groups of people who are organized into hierarchical ranks.
Naturally, Shani promotes a very different type of inpersonal, institutionalized "authority" , deriving from the human sense of / father / as the maintainer of order in the home.
Ideally, Surya represents the creative force of divine light which causes intelligence to radiate from the humanized, densified human embodiment.
Residing at a mutually hostile 6-8 geometry, Surya's authorship in the fatherly role may come into an angle of permanent loggerheads with Shani's authority in the anti-creative, law-and-order sense of father, 'autor' in bhava-10.
