Indian Subcontinent is the base of occult culture wherein many eminent Avatars, Monks, followers of religious activities were born. Their contribution to the world is very notable & vital to relinquish the adversities in our daily life. From the religions lore we find many Avatars, Saints and Rishis cited their thought provoking wisdom to fathom about the Supreme Being, God. In the Kaliyuga, Avatar Baristha RamaKrishna’s advent was glorious to unify the Supreme Being, God, Allah, Jesus Christ, like many ways to reach that in practice tries to follow the different religions by performing their system.

Finally he finds that there is God who is controlling this universe. Each and every human being is having the soul, which is the part and parcel of the Supreme Being. Every human body is the intermixture of five earthly elements – ‘Khhiti’, ‘Aap’, ‘Tej’, ‘Morut’ and ‘Bom’. He advocated the Vedanta system of Indian philosophy. Maa Saradamoni advocated the ‘Samkhya system’ of Indian philosophy wherein ‘Purusha and Prakriti’ are the two instincts. The open sky is the ‘Purusha’ and the existing world is the ‘Prakriti’. We have to love each other. We have to feel the sufferings of mankind while Swami Vivekananda was of the opinion that “Jive Prem Kare Jeijon Seijon Sevichhe Ishwar”. That is, we have to love each other to fathom the pursuit of God. He delivered his speech in Chicago spreading the thinking of his Guru Sri Sri Ramakrishna Parama Hansa. Give food, shelter, treatment, love and affection to distressed poor and persons below the poverty line as uttered by Swami Vivekananda who has done a lot in the spiritual field by serviving only 39 years. Spiritual awareness and religious activities are found in India, Indian subcontinent and mainly in Asian countries, which we find from Vedas, Srimad Bhagabad Gita, Puranas, Upanishads & Samhitas. Even the scientist Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose invented the “Iswar Kana” which was gladly accepted by the universe.

Indian system of Oriental Heritage deals with Religion, Spirituality, Vedas, Puranas, Yoga, Upanishad, Ayurveda, Astronomy, Astrology, Science, Medicine, Vastu, Samudrik Shastra and allied subjects for the nourishment of the mankind in high thinking, simple living, peace minded and healthy doing.

We observed that Ayurveda, Yoga and Puranas have given excellent results in case of treatment of human being from ancient days. Modern medicines cannot cure certain critical cases like Cancer, Arthritis, Diabetes Mellitus and Asthma but ayurveda supports too much and dedicated to cure the patients. Till today, ayurvedic medicines are so praise worthy to heal the pernicious diseases. “Charak Samhita” is an old treatise, which, in ancient days, does many types of human treatments. Sanskrit literature has advocated various subjects’ thought to highlight. Classical Music, Tantra, Puran and Yoga have exposed the reality to help the distressed persons showing their routine lives. We should not forget the real treasure of Ayurveda, as it is a precious gift of our ancestors, which we can deem, fit as oriental heritage properly too. We have seen the performance of religious saints like Jagatguru Sankaracharya, Bhagawan Ramchandra, Avatar Sri Krishna, Trailonga Swami, Gautam Buddha, Chaitanya Dev, Huen Sung, Mahavir, Lokenath, Shirdi Sainath, Rishi Aurobinda, who have contributed the longway prosperity to Indian Religion and reorganizing the human civilization. That is why these religious personalities were born to remove the legacy of rich cultural heritage to establish social reforms and change our religious activities and pursuit of truth. Swami Vivekananda approached globally the pursuit of religion and Indian culture with Rama Krishna’s contribution in the lore of religion and spirituality.

I would like to cite 12 horoscopes of eminent religious personalities who had in depth in the subject and their indomitable spirit to advocate religion is tremendous. During the Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapar Yuga and Kaliyuga, we have had these Godmen in the world to educate in religion and shape the formalities of the walks of daily life. I have tried my level best to elucidate these horoscopes both from astrological standpoint and religious views, how to find out the outcome of it. I shall be glad if anything new is cited while jotting down the topic with my esteem respect and devotion to them.

We know the natural system of our lives that “Chakrabat Parivartante Sukhani Cha Dukhani Cha”. It means – the happiness and sorrows will move in a cyclic order throughout our lives, which cannot be changed by anyone. Brahman or God is the ultimate goal of our thinking if we follow by means of worshipping this transcendental Supreme Being, we will be rather benefited out of it. Physics has already admitted our eminent scientist Sir Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose invented the “Iswar Kana” i.e. the molecular particle of the God during the beginning of nineteenth century. We have to accept the dogma “Sarvam Khallidam Brahmam”. That is, God is remaining everywhere, which we feel by deep meditation and reasoning.

After the demise of Ramkrishna, she played a pivotal role for formation and guidelines framed by Swami Vivekananda in the Belur Math. Ladies are given to work in Mission. They were taught academically, and religious rituals were provided to them by Jaganmata Sarada Devi. Distressed women, widows, young girls were given chance of education and for religious deeds as suggested by both Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda. In Bag Bazar, Sarada Devi used to stay for a prolonged period where one school was established and branch of Ramkrishna Mission was established later on.
