it multiplies it."

  • In the Persian-Arabic-European traditions, and in Jyotishavidya, professor Mangala is associated with the metal called Iron Isarnan = Ferrum [Lat] . AdrisAra, ayasa, muNDAyasa, et-cetera.

Mangala = Ang- ari-ka

roots of this word = ang "to move forward" + ari"to invade, to fight"

The Indo-European root related root 'anh' [choke, naarrow, distressing] is historically different from the Indo-European root Ang [move, thrust]

[cf. English = anger, anxiety, anguish, angst, angina]

However despite different connotations, in speech they often sound the same.

// Manjushri is the natural form of the wisdom of all Conquerors; one relies on him to increase wisdom in discriminating the truth. Tsong-ka-pa met Manjushri through Lama U-ma-pa. //



Tenzing Gyatso, tsong-ka-pa and Jeffrey Hopkins, Tantra in Tibet.

"There was a painting of Manjushri on the wall of Tsong-ka-pa's Ga-wa-dong retreat,

and upon improvement of his meditation, agreat light emitted from Manjushri's heart.

That was the first time Tsong-ka-pa saw Manjushri, and thereafter at his wish he met with Manjushri, =

who taught him the difficult points of the stages of the path.

Therefore, tsong-ka-pa pays homage to the lowest part of Manjushri's body, his feet.

In ordinary refuge, once our temporary purpose has been satisfied,

we no longer need a source of refuge.

Here, tsong-ka-pa takes refuge not for a trifling superficial purpose,

but for the ultimate purpose of attaining the fruit of complete liberation from suffering and the causes of suffering,

and, since this is not usually done in a few years or even in one lifetime,

he pays respectful homage in all his lifetimes.

This indicates that the path must be practised within the context of refuge from lifetime to lifetime

  • until becoming a Buddha." [end quote]

Career advantage = yang-energy Kuja

Professional conquestsMangala in bhava-3, Mangala in bhava-4, and Mangala in bhava-7 measured from indriya-lagna, or from Chandra lagna] will cast a pro-active, competitive, and often aggressive drishti upon professional bhava-10.

Kuja possesses an abundant supply of physical movement energy that fuels sustained competitive action. Kuja drishti toward bhava-10 fuels the drive toward recognized performance in professional conquests.

Presuming that the Mangala mahadasha occurs during adulthood and that other more sophisticated graha are nicely coordinated with Kuja's primitive, self-directed "bullet" style of pursuit, the native enjoys a career advantage.

Mangala invigorates career activities which require"getting ahead" via physical vitality, direct movement, singular focus, sports and military culture, the company of young males, and dominating "alpha" instincts.

Mangala = malefic or benefic?

300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotiṣika BV Raman opines:

~~ B.V. Raman, Three Hundred Important Combinations .[10th ed., delhi, 1991, 1947] ."Malefics, sukha-graha, and Neutrals " p. 5

"Mars: He is benefic as

Here we have taken into account the 'modified influence' due to the second lordship.

Thus if you take Sagittarius, mars is benefic as ruler of a trine 5 and neutral as ruler of 12.

But his trinal lordship is so powerful as to overcome the 12th lordship so that he becomes a benefic.

Mars is neutral as ruler of 1 and 6 Scorpio

and malefic

Mangala =

Vitality and Revitalization; Start and Re-start; Birth and Rebirth


Kuja represents the life force energy which enlivens all sentient beings.

  • Kuja directs the rejuvenating cycle of death-and-rebirth .

  • Mesha = blood-birth = that visible, fleshly, body-based birth which incarnated creatures repeatedly endure.

  • Mangala is the natural regulator of bhava-1. The baseline [base lagna] of any inquiry shows the vital basis or birth conditions of the matter in questions.

  • Vṛścika = re-birth = that [largely] invisible, psychic, soul-based transformation of the container of the vital energy which all sentient creatures continuously endure.

In His capacity as natural regulator of randhra bhava-8, angrika can enforce numerous transformations of the container within any apparent fleshly lifetime for an individual vital being. These are not physical death-and-rebirth events but rather virtual rebirths.

  • Major surgery, deep therapeutic healing, emergence from catastrophic change, tantrik magic, can all effect a profound change of identity which functions as a rebirth.

Mangala is the natural regulator of bhava-8. bhava-8 determines Conditions of dematerialization; However, it is important to understand that death is a VITAL PROCESS and certainly not the"end" of anything.

dematerialization is a point upon a cycle of continuous movement of vital energy from form to form which is directed by Mangala.


Mars from Codex de Sphaera c. 1469 CE

Physical Body

Mangala = a tendency to express competitive aggression or rash action via the part of the body indicated by the rashi or the nakshatra of Kuja. This body zone is typically more prone to receive injuries or suffer irritation. See Nakshatra Body Zones

Periods of Mangala often bring irritation to the indicated parts of The earthen body .

  • If Mangala is also rogesha-6 from lagna irritation can deepen into injury or disease; but otherwise, there is an excess combative energy within the psyche which seeks externalization through the designated location within The earthen body .

If Kuja = rogesha-6 from Chandra, there can be an emergence of psycho-emotional mental health issues again associated with the representations of Mangala's rashi. However, naormally there is simply a period of disruption, irritation, and offensiveness

Naturally if Mangala occupies the indriya-lagna, effects on The earthen body are more pronounced.

Physical Irritations = "Ang" effects of unbalanced Angarika

  • overheating resulting in lack of moisture
  • excess movement resulting in exhaustion
  • effects of Anger


  • overheating and irritation to head, scalp, skull, blood, muscles
  • overall muscle pain, spasms, burns, cuts, birth related issues; ang er [Typically, anger of an animal origin, such as competition for food or mate]

  • overheating and irritation to hands, fingers, arms, lungs, shoulders thyroid,

    clavicle, breathing troubles;

    excessive mental movement, mental anx iety


  • overheating and irritation to breasts, stomach;
  • excess movement in glandular system including thyroid,
  • emotional blockage and frustration.

  • Repressed Emotional Ang er [typically originating in the childhood home, such as anger toward mother]


  • overheating and irritation to heart, chest, eyes; spine;
  • feeling of burning in the center of the body
  • hot, burning cardiac pain = Ang ina

[Mangala-Kanya] = Kuja sees Budha as an enemy

  • overheating [pitta] and irritation to digestive system, intestines, colon,
  • gall-bladder, food allergies, eating disorders.
  • Food poisoning, toxemia and septicemia.

  • overheating and irritation to"paired balancing organs " kidney-pancreas-adrenal + eyes, ears, tonsils, ovaries
  • excess motion causing irritation to paired joints e.g. wrists, knees, ankles
  • urinary system, ears, external genitalia [vagina, penis, testicles] and venous system


  • overheating and irritation to internal"hidden" portions of the reproductive system [uterus, cervix, ovaries, prostate] ,
  • hormone-gland system, blood, liver, anus. Hidden sources of Ang er [typically sexual trauma]
  • Ailments in Vṛścika may appear to have a sudden onset because the early stages were hidden.


  • overheating and irritation to abdomen, hips, thighs, sacroiliac, lower back, kundalini-related issues


  • overheating and irritation to bones, cartilage, sinew, knees, arthritis, skeletal disorders,
  • dryness, age related issues and structural components
  • physical trickle-down results = erosion of structure due to over-work


  • overheating and irritation to skin and nervous system,"pinched nerves "
  • itching, skin eruptions, calves, dryness, age-related issues
  • physical trickle-down results of feeling impeded in one's work, or working very hard for little effect


  • overheating and irritation to feet, lymph system, glandular issues,
  • over-stimulation of imagination, psycho-somatic disorders,
  • disturbance to emotional and intuitive bodies [astral origins]
  • ang- nail [hangnail] = overheating causing dryness and irritation causing pains upon the foot

Kuja = Agent of Pursuit

Mangala represents the fiery animal nervous system chassis, afundamental and inseparable component of the human experience. Kuja is instinctive , reactive, goal-focused, and alive!

Kuja is vigorous, vital, excited, direct and invasive .

Mangala = muscular and quick-trigger active. He indicates vigorous movement, dance, running, jumping, athletic competitions, and every type of physical sport.

Kuja = hunter , diver, builder, innovator, energy producer, agent of pursuit. Within relationships, whether personal or professional, Shukra is the attractor and Mangala is the pursuer. Kuja's rashi, domain, and drishti give further details of the style and motive for His pursuit.

  • If Mangala is well positioned, the Mangala Mahadasha can be the most dynamic and productive period of life. If Angaraka is weak or less benevolent, Angaraka mahadasha may signify eruptions of Anger [krodha] , blaming, and accidents.

If one holds the conventional victim perspective of things happening "to" one, mars-Ars periods can release so much anger that severe accidents are not out of the question. The possibility of really harming yourself -- or allowing another person to mirror your frustration so intensely that they harm you -- is adequate motivation to pursue a more conscious release for the anger!

If Mangala Mahadasha is anticipated, it is wise to study the psychology of projection, to avoid projecting one's own internal anger randomly into the environment, where it can be picked up unconsciously by another person and "returned to owner" with vigorous force!

Papagraha such as Mars-Ars, saturan-Shani, and Professor Rahu when functioning at full power can function as an empowered maraka graha.

An intelligent and reflective person will be aware of the volume of anger surging toward the top of one's psychic volcano.

Periods of Professor Mangala may signal the opening [often forceful] which creates Exit Permission. Mangala is creative and outgoing. His yang-energy patterns can stimulate inter-human or inter-species conflict and provoke the inherent violence of nature . Like any graha, professor Mangala has a curriculum to teach, and His responsibility toward His students is to evoke subconscious patterns forcing them to rise into conscious action, at the scheduled time, so that the students can do what they came to Earth to do which is to learn about energy .

The graha are radio-transmitters which signal programming that facilitates the unfolding of patterns of material, emotional, and mental experiences.

Toward this purpose of facilitating the student's learning, one empowerment of the rays of the immediate graha of Earth's solar-system is to evoke other-life and earlier childhood unresolved psycho-emotional situations, and push those incompletely understood situation to a physical level --whether that be a combat fight or a caring touch -- with the purpose being to raise awareness of these forceful-movement patterns to the surface of consciousness.

The individual's own seed-beliefs in the form of memories can blossom on schedule in order to initiate the unfolding of a pattern of experience. The pattern can repeat an infinite number of occurrences until the student can demonstrate understanding. The universe is patient.

To speed the conclusion of the lessons which contain topics relating to the inherent violence [breakage] of nature and the awareness of conflict as a required phase of creative birth and movement, it is helpful to develop awareness of what is in that memory bank!

What are the expectations regarding competition, domination, championship, battle, birth, pioneering, invasion, engineering, explosion, drilling, innovation, fire, attack, sexual pursuit, dynamic energy, eruptions of force, and warriors? What is the expected role of brothers and worthy opponents?

The expectations can be examined safely in contemplative, reflective, meditative thought modes before the scheduled action occurs. Formal and informal meditation practice, journal-writing, engaged psychotherapy, conversations with friends, and many other awareness-evoking modalities can assist the acquisition of a mental preparedness for the unfolding of physical consequences.

The mechanics of experience are simply put [1] a seed of belief comes to sprout as a thought [2] the thought in the act of sprouting immediately magnetically attracts its matching emotion [3] the paired thought-emotion energize the forces of the material world, and a tangible experience is born [4] one may use intelligence [choosing] to react or to observe, or to combine reaction with witness-observer awareness in any proportion desired.

As the student develops a partial awareness of the inventory of stored memories which are being stimulated into physical birth and vigorous moving action according to the empowerments of the Mangala bhukti of the Vimshottari Dasha schedule, the deep satisfaction of ownership and control over outcomes can be obtained. The student may observe the precise unfolding of one's own beliefs, expectations, hopes, wishes, desires, and needs into the field of perceptual reality. You, and only you, control this process.

Successful learning about the patterns of re-al-iz-at-ion [realization = thing-making] depends upon how the person understands the bija-seed release process.

All outcomes are determined by the seed-beliefs. The beliefs frame and limit the definition of what is possible. Fin = limit, fence; definition = setting limits.

  • According to the expected limitations upon the unfoldment of Mangala energy, the materialization of a period of Professor Mangala may express sexual pursuit, alpha-male group domination, competitive exhilaration and championship, pioneering, engineering, innovation, or war, invasion, conflict and confrontation, violence, and battering.

All of these outcomes are possible within the scope of Professor Mangala's curriculum because all of these descriptions [and many more] are expressions of yang-energy outgoing force. The student is completely in control of their definitions, and thus the student is completely in control of their outcomes.

It is recommended to study the inventory of beliefs and definitions so as to be prepared to manage the Mangala bhukti to your creative satisfaction.

As the student peels back the layers of the thick blanket of un-knowing which has surrounded precious Earth for millennia, it becomes possible to gain conscious awareness of the memories of action, progress, and competition which are being stimulated by the Mars-Ars period.

Because one of Kuja's forceful abilities is transformative healing and sudden changes of identity, professor Mangala's curriculum can evoke a massive tangible healing transformation. If the student carefully observes the seed-release process, what may seem to the reactive, un-knowing mind like a terrifying threat of annihilation may reveal itself to be at a deeper level a miraculous healing rebirth. Consciousness is the keyr.

Spiritually oriented students may be aware Kuja's surging, geo-thermal energy may be harnessed for purposes of tantric healing.

Naturally Kuja emits warrior patterns and thus the healing scenario is intended to have qualities of battering and warfare. Dynamic, forceful uprising of anger and aggression are stored in the subconscious inventory and utilized [consciously or unconsciously] within many lifetimes. So, even a normally placid personality can be expected to express anger occasionally under Mars-Ars influence. There may be initiating movements across sexual boundaries, or dominating acts of invasion of the physical, emotional, or mental planes of a perceived competitor.

Depending upon which two bhava He rules, professor Mangala may stimulate aggressive behavior from relatives [3 or 8] co-workers [3 or 6] spouse-partners [7] religious figures or father-figures [9] or boss-figures or government officials [10] - to name only a few possibilities. The most conscious option is to perceive each attack as a unique expression of the student's underlying expectations.

Understand that the figures attacking you now - physically, mentally, financially, socially, legally, or emotionally - are those whom you have attacked in parallel lives.

The rules of [akashic memory patterning] requires that in dualistic systems [such as Earth] when the student has completed the experience of one half of a duality, then the student is obligated to complete the experience of the other half of that duality. The purpose of pre-incarnationally planned law is to ensure completion of all experiences before the final record of the experience is sealed. From a system perspective, [akashic memory patterning] [meaning required action, from the root kri] is a reasonable and beneficial requirement.

The victimization [being eaten] narrative which often accompanies an attack experience can be significantly minimized by the conscious student who is willing to accept responsibility without guilt.

There is no benefit to engaging in accusation, blame, grief, or guilt since these are acts based in the superstition that forces external to the self are capable of causing reality. All reality is caused by the intention of the self and no other cause.

The learning goal will be accomplished at the moment when the student understands that the attack is an expression of the system. It is not capable of harming the eternal self nor is any action capable of producing spiritual annihilation.

The self is never born and never dies. The opposite of death is birth. There is no opposite to Life. Life is beginningless. Therefore, the successful student may have a experience of miraculous realization during any moment of unfoldment, realizing the system being demonstrated, realizing one's own intention operating the system, and merging at that moment with Source.

Mangala experiences involve dueling forces. Nevertheless, the educational curriculum of Mangala provides exactly the same opportunity for enlightenment and self-realization as the educational curriculum of any other Graha.

If the student understands the pre-incarnationally planned system and pursues the opportunity to experience the system-in-action, and accepts responsibility-without-guilt for the consequences of other-life actions, it will be possible to deal smoothly and smartly with others' anger which right now is directed straight at the student.

If the learner is able to psychically release inherited superstitious blaming behaviors then using the Mangala force as a fuel source, one's career can take a huge step up or other competitive situations may be met with the mind of a champion. When Mangala resides in His [uchcha] Makara, or His svakshetra of Vṛścika or [mūlatrikoṇa] Mesha, His dasha periods may be expected to generate competitive success. Similarly His [dikbala] placement in karma-sthāna-10 or His drishti into 10 are highly energizing toward projects which require domination, innovation, or new birth.

Anger is a symptom of underlying fear - specifically, the fear of death. Again, understand the system. Life is eternal. Life has no limits. The essential quality of life is life. Therefore fear of death is simply an expression of un-knowing, of ignorance. The sincere student may apply knowledge of eternal nature to the homework-problem of anger.

The Indo-European root ang indicates choking, seizing [angina] . Anger is a completely natural short-term response to the threat of loss of life-force resource. Whether the loss of life-force means death of a fleshbody, asocial position, an idea, or a relationship, the anger response is embedded in human consciousness as a reaction to the choking feeling of threat to life.

Often the most successful approach to anger is to accept that most beings-in-bodies have some degree of unconscious programming to re-invigorate when feeling drowned, choked, strangled, or suffocated. The will to survive-and-thrive is usually expressed as the urge to fight or mate. From the system perspective, anger is a very reasonable short-term response mechanism.

However, it is natural and satisfying only as a brief experience to promote continuation of the life of the current embodiment. After the crisis passes, the need for the life-sustaining anger response also passes. Psychological and physical issues develop when anger is suppressed, retained, or covered under camouflage. Shani-influenced anger-maintenance can result in bitterness, resentment, and the diseases of suppressed anger. Therefore, if anger outlives its immediate

Under influence of Mars the student will be shown a highly rewarding work path if the student has the inner peace and clarity to recognize that path. For many with a strong Mars so much energy is going into anger management that a low-to-medium awareness person could not possibly manifest more than neutral professional survival. Anger is self-imprisoning . There can be vicious arguments because Mars makes speech brutally honest - and often sarcastic or vulgar toor.

Anger - Angst - Anxiety - Angina - Angaraka

As anger arises, take permission to heal, release, heal, release. Start screaming. Dance your brains out. Any heat-generating movement will give excellent release.

  • Martial arts that use powerful leg/pelvic movement with screaming are perfect!! Mars is third chakra so run that bright yellow Kuja force with enthusiasm! If the student have the blessing to release anger through warrior arts, dance, bicycling, massage = especially of upper legs/pelvis/abdomen. THEN the student can USE the energy newly freed from anger management TO ADVANCE the learner's CAREER.

  • Basically the more energy the student releases through conscious healing the faster the career and love-life log-jams will break up.

Ayurvedic treatment is great because of the hot oil massages, but if the student can't find a brilliant ayurvediki then homeopathic can also be a highly successful approach. Standard homeopathic remedies for Rage include belladonna. However, the homeopath [ideally only classic homeopathy] will ask for one's full lifestyle, and they might peel off the onion layers more slowly.

  • I'm emphasizing how important anger release and healing are for Mars folks because these are our leaders. The world needs the student . Mars phase is a critical make-or-break step in advancing leadership vocations. The anger either consumes the student or the student transform it into jet fuel, break the chains, and get pro-active.

In the beginning, Mars-Ars mahadasha can be supremely frustrating. Unless the anger is acknowledged, professor Mangala's curriculum can seem to generate a blockage interrupting career progress. This sort of blockage frustration is for conscious folks the darkness before the dawn.

True leaders will climb to higher leadership potency through higher awareness. During Mangala bhukti, the student is motivated to climb.

Warlike behaviors do increase in the beginning of the period. Human culture is transitioning out of the tribal framework but there is still war because not everyone is ready to release fear and anger. Another planet is presently being populated by those who need to continue the anger-culture. The new earth as it is sometimes called is populated primarily by those who have awareness of anger and can manage it rather than become the victim of it.

Wishing every success and deep peace in managing one's own anger so that the student gains strength and confidence to help others on the hard-and-bumpy road to understanding the system.

Mangala traits according to the rashi-ruler

Mangala in Singha vital energies are brightly and dynamically unique. Often a mover and a shaker in the creative realms of speculative finance, politics, entertainment, gaming and gambling, performance arts, and haute couture.

[Mangala-Karkata] [nīcha] = Kuja is typically very direct, but in Karkata [nīcha] the movement tends to be indirect . Can be emotionally passive-aggressive with a tendency to pursue manipulative, sneaky, twisting or squeezing strategies as a means to reach the target. In extreme cases, extortion. Maximally challenging in Aśleṣa - Naga.

However Yogakaraka Mangala-Karkata in bhava-1 provides extraordinary benefits for society even while one may have personality issues.

Mangala in svakshetra = the champion, the huntsman, the surgeon, and the deep miner.

In Mesha, vigorously athletic, physically energized and competitive; pioneering and innovative in muscular movement.

In Kita, psychologically or physically dominating, incisive, able to drill through surfaces; penetrating, and often intensely controlling.

svakshetra Mangala is a fountain of kinetic energy that may be found in the most demandingly competitive and exploratory situations.

[Mangala-Mesha] = new birth, competitive movement, invention, innovation

[Mangala-Vṛścika] = forcing new identities for old containers, eruption, rebirth, diving into the depths, recycling,

QUOTATION from Tenzing Gyatso. [1997] . A Policy of Kindness: An Anthology of Writings By and About the Dalai Lama

Use of Force is not a sign of strength, but rather a sign of weakness.

" If there are sound reasons or bases for the points you demand, then there is no need to use violence.

On the other hand, when there is no sound reason that concessions should be made to you but mainly your own desire, then reason cannot work and you have to rely on force.

  • Thus, using force is not a sign of strength but rather a sign of weakness.

Even in daily human contact, if we talk seriously, using reasons, there is no need to feel anger. We can argue the points. When we fail to prove with reason, then anger comes.

  • When reason ends, then anger begins .

Therefore, anger is a sign of weakness." [end quote]

QUOTATION from Tenzing Gyatso and Alexander Berzin, The Gelug/Kagyu Tradition of Mahamudra. p.142.

  • fashion the steel into a sword = shamata

" The attainment of shamata is a serenely stilled state of mind, settled on mind itself. Although the attainment of such a meditational state focused on mind is the foundation for developing the highest attainments and is, of course, very excellent, by itself it is insufficient for reaching those goals.

When we achieve a mind focused on mind with the perfect placement of absorbed concentration, free from all faults of dullness or flightiness, we increasingly experience an element of bliss accompanying our meditation. When we experience serene joy, on both a physical and mental level, brought on by the force of total absorption of mind on mind, we achieve a meditational state that fulfills the definition of shamata.

Our ordinary mind is like raw iron ore that needs to be made into a steel sword. Progressing through the stages for attaining shamata is like forging the iron into steel. All the materials are there at our disposal. But since the mind wanders after external objects, then although it is the material for attaining shamata, it cannot Yet, be used as this product. We have to forge our mind through a meditational process. It is like putting the iron ore into fire.

To fashion the steel into a sword , or in this analogy to fashion the mind into an instrument that understands voidness, our serenely stilled and settled mind needs to come to decisive realization of voidness as its object. Without such a weapon of mind, we have no opponent with which to destroy the disturbing emotions and attitudes."
