Mayan Calender and its Vedic Perspective
Nowadays, lot of being said for Mayan prediction that world. It predicts the doomsday- mayan calendar ends on Sunday, December 23, 2012. According to it a great catastrophe is expected. Only a few people will survive. Is it true- or not? Still it is a big question. When everything is concerned with people massively then itself drags attention. According to Mayan calendar, the Earth will be destroyed by cataclysmic astronomical events
Many questions arise from this prediction. According to sources the Mayan calendar ends here. There is no record of any prediction. What will really happen is still in doubt. Why Mayan calendar has not provided further possible happenings- it is an exhaustive work and maybe depends on the coming generation to continue it! Or the world is really going to an end. There were many rumors like this earlier too.
According to information from Wikipedia given -- The essentials of the Maya calendar are based upon a system which had been in common use throughout the region, dating back to at least the 5th century BCE. Was the map of Earth complete at that time? Many places were yet to be explored then. Many civilizations grew later on. Many times people of the earth go through loss of millions and millions of lives in many catastrophes. Was the calendar correctly based on astronomy that may describe the time or place where it could happen? Technically - was it sound and well equipped? There is no doubt that Mayans had amazing sense of mathematics and astronomy but limitations also existed.
The Mayan’s operated on three separate calendars, and their method of keeping track of time was very long and complicated. The first one was the Haab calendar – for civil purpose, second-the Tzolkin used for ceremonial purpose and the third the Long Count used for historical purpose.
According to the different sources The Mayan calendar predicts that astronomical occurrences are predicted to take place on December 21, 2012, such as the sun being aligned directly with the center of the Milky Way, or any other astronomical event that may create disruption on the earth on December 21, 2012 due to the alignment of the axis of the Earth could take place.
However, according to Vedic Astrology – If it is the month of kartika, amavasya [new moon] falls on Tuesday, Moon is in swati Nakshatra, Ayushman yoga exists then it is loss of living and non living objects.
During the kartik month and amavasya that is the new moon day is falling on 13th November 2012, then the Moon will be on Swati Nakshatra and the day is Tuesday but the yoga formed that day will be Saubhagya means one yoga ahead from Ayushman. The loss is expected during that period. Though yoga is missing and Saubhagya yoga indicates the silver streak in dark. It suggests some catastrophe but that would not be certainly the end of the world.
Now is expected any catastrophe, the chart drawn at the time of the kartik amavasya shows aspect of Saturn to Mars in fiery sign Sagittarius and the formation of eclipse in Libra suggest fire and storm. The Sanghatta Chakra- the astrological diagram to predict the catastrophe and possible areas of it – the sign Libra and Taurus are found to be afflicted though the triangle consists of Taurus, Libra and Aquarius. The places Tasmania, Cyprus, Ireland, Switzerland, Capri, Rhodes, the Greek Islands are ruled by Taurus. Libra governs Argentina, Austria, Burma, Canada, China, Japan, Siberia, Tibet and Aquarius governs Finland, Iran, Russia, Sweden, Syria, Ethiopia. Out of which the Libran countries are most afflicted in the chart. Therefore, the event is expected to happen in Libran countries. It would be event or many fateful events that may claim several lives in different days that may spread from two month before and after the eclipse formed on November 13th, 2012.
When observed through korma chakra- an astrological diagram to know about the direction and places concerned the South, South West direction is afflicted by malefic. This indicates south west America, Mexico, North-West Argentina, Cuba and Bahamas – possibly the area hit by active volcanoes there OR any fall of meteor [fire] from sky [Libra] in the Pacific region.
When this korma chakra is applied to India then Gujarat, Maharashtra are the most hit areas by any explosion or natural calamity.
By any means the end of human civilization is not observed astrologically as the North, North East, south and South East and North directions are observed to be safe.
About the 2012 prediction – rumors are louder than fact. What is the exact prediction of Mayan Calendar? Did it predict the doomsday clearly?
Actually, the Mayan Calendar stops there- why? There could be many reasons. Mayans must have many reasons to do it- they must have limited resources or left it for the coming generation to complete it. Or it would have been covered a long time scale then! Or the scatter of group then responsible for writing the calendar or the chief person would have been gone- there would be many many reasons to stop that calendar – but certainly that doesn’t mean the end of the world.
