Answer:


1. Gingili oil (Seasame oil) known as NalleNNai is good for lighting lamp at home as well as at all temples. It is also good for health and Srivaishnavite should use the Seasame oil than any other oil. It is said, the carbon emanated from this Gingili oil releases the negative forces from the surroundings where the lamp is lit with this oil, thus cleansing the surroundings. The practice of using food items, clothing and all came from the necessity for each region; this was based mainly on the climatic, topographical conditions and the needs of local according to the availability of products. for isntance, people from Eastern India uses cummin seeds oil (Kadugu eNNai) which protects them from winter cold; likewise, in Kerala the cultivation of Coconut is high, the availability is a plenty hence they use it. 


2. Though for Srivaishnavites Srimann NarayaNa is the prime and only deity to worship, all the scented flowers can be used for Him along with Tulsi - which is a must and most important as Sri Mahavishnu is known as Tulasi Priya! Yes, there are many flowers that are used for each Navagraha deity.


3. Yes, one can worship Lord Sri Lakshmi Hayagriva for gaining knowledge, wisdom and good education.


4. Sri Anjaneya known as Hanuman is part & parcel of Sri Maha Vishnjus paraphernalia (Srivaishnava Mudra) known as Shanku (conch), Chakra (The divine Wheel), Namam (Thiruman), Garuda (The Carrier of Sri Vishnu) and Hanuman. The above five emblems are part of Srivaishnava culture and one can prominently see these in all Temples and even in the Magazines published by many Vaishnava sect publications. However, worshiping Sri Hanuman separately is not recommended. Either they can do the same along with Sri rAma & Seetha. It is certainly not against Srivaishnava culture to worship Hanuman. He is known as Siriya Thiruvadi and Garuda is known as periya Thiruvadi. Why, even Lord Sri Yoga Nrusimha has passed on the Shanka & Chakra to Hanuman to be kept while Sri Nrusimha went on to Yoga stage. This can be ascertained from the history of Srivaishnava Divyadesam at Sholinghar near Arakkonam, which is known as Kadikai aka Kadikachalam, where a separate Sannidhi  is established in the small hill near the main hill of Sri Narasimha swamy temple at Sholinghar. Even, the Bhagavad-Gita was pronounced for the indirect hearing for Hanuman. Hanuman was sitting on the flag pole of the Chariot driven by Parthasarathy - Sri Krishna while delivering the Gita Upadesam to Arjun. This one can ascertain from many factors emerging from Sri Bhagavad-Gita. If it was that of Shiva amsam then they should portrait Hanuman with Vibhoothi or the holy ash the Smarthas use. Wherein, youll see everywhere in all temples Hanuman with white paste Namam and Srichoornam. Only while doing neivedhyar known as prasadam offerings, they should offer it firstly to the Main deity and then to other daities and lastly to Hanuman.

SIR, DO WE REALLY GET EFFECTED BY BLACK MAGIC, EVIL EYES ? WHAT CAN WE DO TO PREVENT AND CURE SUCH CASES?

 

Asnwer:  Yes, the negative vibrations created by such acts affects the person concerned. These evil forces do act with no considerations to the law or humanity. Some of the Atharva Vedha scripts do deal with the subject and there is certainly a connection made through wave-length and medium of souls to spoil every chance of peaceful living by the socalled black-magic dealers. Sri Sudarsana Gayatri and Sri Sudarsana Ashtakam will definitely protect one from getting affected by these evil forces. Sri Nrusimha stothra too will protect the persons who recites these slokas regularly.

RESPECTED SIR, IN YOUR SITE ATLEAST YOU HAVE CLEARLY MENTIONED ABOUT NAMING OF CHILD USING JANMA RASHI AND NAKSHATRA, BUT SOME ASTROLOGERS LIKE MR. SANJAY RATH AND MR. PVR RAO ARE SIMPLY REJECTING THIS IMPORTANT POINT AND ARE SPREADING SOMETHING LIKE VEDIC NUMEROLOGY THAT IS TOO MATERIALISTIC AS THEY SIMPLY SAY NAME SHOULDBE KEPT USING SOME NEW FORMULA, AND THAT THE NAKSHATRA THING TOTALLY USELESS WITH NO BENEFITS, CAN YOU MAKE THIS THING MORE CLEAR AS EXACTLY NAMING OF CHILD OR CHANGE OF NAME SHOULD BE DONE, BECAUSE IF SUCH PRACTISES ARE ENCOURAGED I THING THEN THE WHOLE ASTROLOGY THING IS LYING IN CONFUSION WITH NO CONSISTENT RULES AND CONTRADICTORY STATEMENTS I WONDER WHAT IS THE USE OF SUCH A SCIENCE WHICH HAS NO SET THEOREMS JUST INTUTION

 

Answer: Every astrologer has his own way of telling things! Whether connected to the divine subject or not, the modern trend is always to find some thing new and explore the possibilities of getting relief, if not from the Ancient Vedic Astrology, then through any other modern subjects.


Astrology is the one great subject for forewarning (surely not to stop the happenings but only to caution) and can be considered only as a fair judgment. Any ordinary person could get confused with many available channels today and wonder which one need to be believed. In all fairness, the naming part of Astrology is certainly has its fruits. And if a person is named with some divine and correct accent, surely there is benefit for the subject.


Of course, the other methods do have some value, but all that are suitable to the originating topographical conditions and not for us in India - that is Bharat. The Vedic substance is certainly working far better to the natives. The full dressings viz. Suit, coat and Tie can be relieving effect from the cold in the western countries. But can this be alternate to a person living in India during hot summer? Everything in the Vedic scripts are evolved according the to needs of persons. The climatic, topographic and cultural values are certainly there in the Vedic reliance which is not available in other medium of Astrology.


Incidentally, the evaluation of mathematics was very well in existence during the Vedic era. Why, even the figure digit "0" was invented by our own sages! The Vedic Ganitha too speaks volumes on this and the subject Astrology surely based on the same Vedic Astrology with Vedic Mathematics. But they never tried on the Numerology but stuck to Astrology which is purely based on celestial passions and movements of planets that influenced the Earth and its subjects. So, naming as per Vedic system is certainly a valid one, even in todays changed circumstances with many more available options!
