SYSTEMATIC institutional legal balancing

procedural JUDGMENTS impose principles of fairness, equity, parity, and justice

in matters of social GOVERNMENT


The resistance to the unpleasant situation is the root of the suffering.

~~ Be Here Now 1931-2019 Baba Ram Dass


When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times.

Pema Chödrön, p 91-92

"Spiritual awakening is frequently described as a journey to the top of a mountain.

In the process of discovering bodhichitta [the awakened heart] the journey goes down, not up.

It's as if the mountain pointed toward the center of the earth instead of reaching into the sky.

Instead of transcending the suffering of all creatures, we move toward the turbulence and doubt.

We explore the reality and unpredictability of insecurity and pain, and we try not to push it away. If it takes years, if it takes lifetimes, we let it be as it is.

At our own pace , without speed or aggression, we move down and down and down.

With us move millions of others, our companions in awakening from fear.

At the bottom we discover water, the healing water of bodhichitta.

Right down there in the thick of things, we discover the love that will not die." [end quote]

justice_scales.jpg [akashic memory patterning] of social justice, fair deals, and balanced contracts.

The struggle to achieve Social Equity.

Tula rashi = the best possible location for Shani. In Tula, Shani the Structure-Maker feels welcomed into the rashi of Great Friend Shukra as a respected architect of Social Justice.

Shani-Tula = uttama. Yet Shani is still Shani. [uchcha] = social-material success after lengthy procedures and considerable delay.

Shani-Tula game-plan scripted elements may include:

  • survival fear of the yoke, fear of disorder

  • scarcity of agreements, slow and delayed negotiations, limitations upon trust

  • substantial effort required to impose lawful justice

  • lawful principles of equality, parity, partnership, alliance

  • obligation to impose lawful public order of fair trade, fair contracts, match-making, deals, bargains, diplomacy, conditions of betrothal

One may express a certain elitism, based upon an architectonic view of the social order.

  • Faust 1749-1832 polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe [Atmakaraka] [Shani-3-uchcha] rules his plebian Chandra in Sadachbia [7]. Goethe wrote countless bawdy tavern songs and highly popular melodramas for the folk audience, yet he expressed a view that the common people were inherently incapable of governing themselves. Although Scientific in orientation, Goethe had little interest in social progressive politics such as democracy movements. He preferred the traditional order of social hierarchies.

Shani-Tula tends to put most of its regulatory, ordering, step-wise energy into building a shield of resistance against superficial or insubstantial agreements.

Shani works effectively toward superior levels of Balance. Extraordinary discipline and broadly inclusive social perspective.

Shani=uttama usually works with diligence and produces exceptionally beneficial public results. High quality leadership in social justice.

Invariably a hard worker

  • POTUS-22-24 Interstate Commerce 1837-1908 Grover Cleveland [financial-evaluating Viśākha-2] [Atmakaraka] [Shani-yuti-Ketu] [Shani-5 parivartamsha Shukra-9] According to the newspaper accounts, GC married Frances Folsom in the Whitehouse in the morning and went back to work in the afternoon.

  • France-Pres 1955- financier Nicolas Sarkozy [team-working Viśākha-3] as President of France and simultaneous rotating leader of the European Union, NS was at his planning desk continously.

materially successful; professionally recognized in the chosen field of endeavor.

  • after his abdication announcement, The Mirror 1895-1986 theosophy Jiddu Krishnamurti continued to write and speak at community events. As an abdicant, JK remained a popular public figure. Despite his own frequent declaration that each person should follow their own personal pathway, many cult followers continued to insist that he held a justly lawful authority at a doctrinal level.

In particular, Shani-Tula is engaged professionally with material design - whether mechanical design, political design, artistic design, or other structural development.

The only failure mode for wonderful [uchcha] Shani occurs with The mutual aspect from His bitter enemy [uchcha-Surya] . Those born when Ravi enters Mesha while Shani occupies Tula, are focused, ambitious workers. Unfortunately, uttama Ravi's aristocratic self-confidence is weakened by mutual drishti with His law-and-order, plebian enemy Shani.

This high-tension angle can result in a narcissistic, passive-aggressive quest for personal glory which limits the native 's power to achieve the public recognition he seeks.

Even in an advanced personality, there is much internal resistance due to the extreme tension between personal independent creative freedom [Surya] vs. social structural governance leadership responsibilities

  • The Mirror 1895-1986 theosophy Jiddu Krishnamurti [regulatory-lawful Arcturus-2] [9] in fierce and relentless opposition from entitled first-arriver [uchcha-Surya-Mesha-3]. JK abdicated his appointed role as head of a worldwide religious organization, directing those who had been advised to follow him that truth is a trackless land and each individual [Surya] must discern their own pathway. Nevertheless, JK continued to write and speak as a respected public philosopher [Shani-9].

Another Surya-related disability for [uchcha] Shani can be excessively rigid insistence upon full parity in contracts.

Shani-Tula = deeply committed to the philosophy and practice of equitable relations between have-and-have-not may have poor operating skills for using main vehicle of social power re-distribution - which is Politics.

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter [Chandra-yuti-Shani] [12] JEC is reckoned an outstanding humanitarian, decades-long seva of largely under-the-radar [12] international diplomacy [Tula] and elections regulation in tribal countries (Shani activates Kuja-4). JEC's political downfall as a " failed president" in the USA occurred largely as a result of his proclivity for placing social justice concerns above the day-to-day business of political flattery.

  • The single, salient event which damaged the prestige of JEC's presidency was his inability to negotiate an operational exchange agreement to free the USA hostages in the 1979 Iran-Contra scandal. JEC continued to delay the exchange by insisting upon high ethical principles [Chandra morality]. Because the nation wanted a quick and effective repatriation for the victims, JEC suffered crippling unpopularity..

Presuming auspicious drishti and depending on the bhava, [uchcha] Shani can benefit the masses-and-the-classes via large corporations.

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates [team-working Viśākha-3] + [nīcha-bhanga-Surya-yuti-Shukra] [10, leadership] philanthropy = stunning affluence is judiciously re-invested into greater social equity.

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter [Chandra-yuti-Shani] (12)

  • Hugging Saint 1953- Ammachi of Kerala * public-service leadership, "leveraging" [Tula] the financial wealth and power of large organizations to offset poverty and corruption of the disenfranchised.

QUOTATION from Behari, Shani-Tula-1

" ... is very auspicious, bestowing much honor, power and leadership, high status, wealth, extensive renown and social leadership to you who are exceptionally gifted.

You have enduring health. In spite of an otherwise well-proportioned body, depression persists in your countenance. You are not very careful about your clothes .

You may indulge in a tawdry or socially unacceptable relationship or covet another's' spouse or wealth and suffer humiliation and loss of prestige at some time or other." [end quote]

QUOTATION Das commentary Shani-Tula-7

" Gain through travel and foreign countries.

  • Gentle, soft, learned, philanthropic ,

  • recognized by the community,

  • much intellectual exercises.

  • Broken home, attachment to prostitutes.

Good for doctors, lawyers and any other profession also." [end quote]


USA Capitol Building

meeting house of the USA Congress = senators and representatives


QUOTATION from Tenzing Gyatso, Kindness, Clarity, and Insight, p 50-51

Effort is crucial in the beginning for generating a strong will.

We all have the Buddha nature and thus already have within us the substances through which, when we meet with the proper conditions, we can turn into a fully enlightened being having all beneficial attributes and devoid of all faults.

  • The very root of failure in our lives is to think, Oh, how useless and powerless I am!"

  • It is important to have a strong force of mind thinking, I can do it," this not being mixed with pride or any other afflictive emotion.

Moderate effort over a long period of time is important, no matter what you are trying to do.
  • One brings failure on oneself by working extremely hard at the beginning, attempting to do too much, and then giving it all up after a short time.

  • A constant stream of moderate effort is needed.

  • Similarly, when meditating, you need to be skillful by having frequent, short sessions

  • it is more important that the session be of good quality than that it be long." [end quote]

" Progress comes by maintaining constant effort in daily practice ."
