New Age, Old Faith


1. English saying: “I had a bad day; perhaps, I got down from the wrong side of the bed.”

As part of traditional belief; while getting up from bed in the morning, determine which foot should be put on the ground first. This is an age-old faith and has a technique to willfully consolidate breathing from the correct nostril. It must coincide with the correct Tithi of the lunar cycle. A day’s success can be ensured just by combining the two steps in the morning. However, at the back end by doing so, a person is synchronizing the five elements and taking control of them, rather than they taking control of you!

2. Did you know: 24 hours in a day are governed by 24 Horas (Sanskrit name for Hour). These Horas are Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. Each Hora is represented by one of these ruling planets in that hour. If things are done in accordance to that particular hora, success rate is many times higher.

3. Did you know that mental and physical energy dissipates when we cut hair or nails? This is why proper date (Tithi) was chosen in ancient times so energy depletion could be minimized!
