How can one overcome a bad Rahu Mahadasha and achieve success in life?

Written By Addittya Tamhankar

Don’t rush. Don’t be ignorant. And Don’t become too obsessive with sex. The last word may not go down well with many – but I don’t care. What is – *is*. And I am here not get upvotes but share what I have seen happening – it is not from the books – it is from my experiences.

What is Rahu – it is your desire. What is Rahu Mahadasha – it is the ‘free playground’ where now the batsman is Rahu. So people are telling you to do this and do that – it won’t help – you cannot change the batsman – you cannot tell him to go back – you have to FACE the RAHU batsman – there is simply no escape!

“The more you try to escape from your Karma – the more you would be chased – there is no escaping – some day, some time and at some place – you would be caught – clean-bowled.”

Rahu is darkness. I remember when I was travelling in the US – I had met a old friend – and he was doing exceptionally well – every day parties and parties and parties – and he was just enjoying his life – women, sex, pleasures – status -everything was at his feet – and you know what he was running through? He was running through the Mahadasha of RAHU! And he said to me – see – “Rahu loves me!” – I smiled and said “ Yes overwhelmingly – but be careful.” And then I left.

After 4 years – I get a call at 2 AM – and the same friend starts crying, he says

“ Addittya – I am bankrupt – I don’t know what to do?” –

His Rahu Dasha was over – and RAHU makes sure that whatever HE gives you – HE takes back. Now this friend is planning to come back to India – when there is no where to go – where will you go – but home, sweet home!

The question is – Why this happens? And the answer is simple “Ignorance”

RAHU makes you blind. So RAHU may shower immense power and status to you during HIS Mahadasha – and you may start wondering – “Why I was fearful of Rahu – when Rahu is such a goody good friend!” – But that is just a ‘trailer’ – the real picture starts soon and when it starts – you are ‘in’ for the greatest miseries of your life!

A very reputed builder in Pune who is now arrested for his misdoings- in an interview had mentioned that as soon as his Rahu Dasha begin – he was arrested, tried and finally imprisoned! So you see – now what the heck would you advice to such a man who has been in the construction industry for 30 long years with absolutely no spot on his image? How would you help him overcome RAHU dasha? So – you see – there is NO overcoming – you have to FACE the ‘RAHU’ (Karmic dues) as per your past karma – in last life and this life!

Results cannot be skipped. Remember this – this is of significance. You cannot overcome the results – you cannot overcome the ‘sentence’ ordered by the Supreme Court of this universe (God) – but you can always seek a way to ‘live through’ the dasha of Rahu! Overcoming means you are trying to escape – you will be caught. Facing means you are learning to be courageous – you will come through the dark tunnel of Rahu successfully!

Fear leads you to more miseries. Courage leads you to much happiness.

You want to ‘overcome’ because for you the Dasha of Rahu is an unknown kingdom. A coward wants to overcome, a courageous man wants to go ahead – experience – and come out – as a more mature, more insightful man!

And I want you and all my followers to become mature – I don’t want my followers to remain fearful – I am not the astrologer you have been visiting to – astrologers who simply pump in so much fear within you that you lose all hope and you become more miserable – than RAHU can make you! To my followers – I tell – Jump – jump in the unknown – face bravely – and come out of it ‘shinning like a diamond’!

RAHU loves the fearful, the coward men. It makes his job much easier – but Rahu is hateful of those men who are courageous, who have some much courage that they would simply walk through the dark tunnel of RAHU – with unwavering faith in the Lord, the master!

FAITH – is the DARING the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see!

And RAHU trembles with the word of FAITH! RAHU’s main job is to pull a blanket of ignorance over your eyes – to make you completely materialistic – to make you totally intellectual – all brains – no heart! And so when you are taking the Lord’s name – when you are being faithful – RAHU smells trouble – then he says that this guy is something – then you are making RAHU run for his job then the other way round! So you see – just a small grain of FAITH can move the mightiest mountain – then what the heck this black shadow called RAHU is?

But people are not ready to listen. They visit an astrologer – the astrologer typically says “Oh – your RAHU is starting – and then blah blah and blah and then you are so much worried that you start thinking of overcoming RAHU and then someone like you ask a question on how to overcome RAHU! – But to all my followers – I appeal – that let not this happen to you all – I would like to see a question that says “ How to FACE RAHU – then how to overcome Rahu!”

Rahu is temptation. Many temptations come, when you are going through RAHU. Lots of SEX, lots of POWER, lots of MONEY, lots of Properties – but if you are conscious – if your consciousness is more – then and only then can you FACE RAHU AND DEFEAT the temptations – not overcome! Overcome – means you are trying to run away – a beautiful, sexy girl is standing before you and you start shaking – the religious pundits would tell you to close your eyes – to not to think about that beautiful girl – but that is just like sitting on a bomb – someday – you move a bit and the bomb explodes! And that is how you see these so-called monks, nuns and pundits – being caught in so many sex scandals!

Buddha is not telling you to overcome desires – Buddha is simply trying to make you understand the futility of the desires. Buddha is not blocking you from seeing that beautiful girl – Buddha is simply trying to make you conscious – because when you become conscious – you yourself will realize the futility of your desires – you will realize that you are simply falling for the ‘looks’ – and looks never remain the same, looks can deceive! And the moment you realize the futility of following the so called beautiful girl – you will stop following – and that is the sign of true transformation! Transformation that happens through your own consciousness! A man of awareness, a conscious man simply looks into the eyes of temptation and defeats the temptation! An ignorant man looks for an escape route, to overcome – the intelligent man is a courageous man – he simply walks ahead like a tiger!

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
