Maharishi Parasara in chapter 30 of Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra states that marriage and renunciation should be examined from Upapada. In this article the focus is on Guru Nanak Dev ji and hence on Upapada.
Guru Nanak Dev jis life history is recorded by different scholars in set of books called JanamSakhi. There are four different JanamSakhis namely, Puratan JanamSakhi, Meharban JanamSakhi, Bhai Balas JanamSakhi, and BHai Mani Singhs JanamSakhi. Unfortunately the date of marriage stated differs in all of these JanamSakhis. The age at which Guru ji got married is stated as 12years, 14 years, 17 years and 19 years. Modern scholars have done some research on this and one of the conclusion is that Guru ji got married at the age of 12 years but did not stay with his wife till the age of 19 years.
This article tries to zero on the date of marriage based on Guru Nanak Dev jis horoscope.
All the JanamSakhis agree that Guru Nanak Dev jis wife (Sulakni Devi) belonged to Batala, a place which was 10 days travel time away from Guru jis village Talwandi. The distance from which spouse would come is examine from the lord of 7th house from Venus. In this horoscope, Venus is in Libra hence lord of Aries (i.e. Mars) would bring the scope to the native. Mars is in Libra in a moveable sign indicating that the wife would come from a far off place.
Marriage at a young age of 12 years is essentially a child marriage. Child marriages though are performed at a young age but the bride and groom generally start living together at a later age. Hence child marriage can be viewed as a commitment to marriage or as an engagement which involves marriage ceremony. Since the ceremony is involved, such an engagement must be linked to Upapada. From the age of 11 years and 8 months to 12 years and 4 months Guru Nanak Dev ji was running Narayana dasa of Capricorn and Antar dasa of Virgo. Virgo houses Jupiter, the lord of Upapada and aspects the Upapada itself. Hence it can give child marriage. At Guru jis age of 12 years 2 months Vimshottri Mahadasa of Rahu and antar dasa of Rahu stated. To give marriage the graha whose mahadasa is running must have argala on Navamsa Lagan. Rahu is placed in 3rd from Navamsa Lagan result in argala on lagan. (Malefics in 3rd result in argala - reference: Pt. Sanjay Raths translation of stanza 1.1.5 of Jamini Maharishis Upadesa Sutras). Rahu itself is one of the lord of 7th house in Navamsa and hence can give marriage in its antar dasa. Since Upapada lord is Jupiter, Rahu would generally not give marriage but it can in this horoscope because Rahu is placed in Jupiters sign in Rasi chart.
From the age of 17 years and 5 months to 17 years and 6 months Guru ji was running Narayana dasa of Gemini and antar dasa of Libra. Libra houses Venus whereas Gemini aspects both upapada and upapada lord Jupiter. Hence it can give marriage.
From the age of 19 years and 1 month to 19 years and 6 months Guru ji was running both Narayana dasa and antar dasa of Gemini. Gemini aspects upapada, upapada lord and conjoins Ketu and hence can give marriage. If we were to support the theory that Guru ji got married at the age of 12 years but started living with his wife at a later age, then Gemini-Libra dasa would be chosen over Gemini-Gemini dasa for his union with his wife because Libra conjoins Venus (significator of physical contact whereas Gemini conjoins Ketu (significator of renunciation).
Selection between the two dates can be made by considering Sudarshan Chakra. Progressing Saturn at the rate of 1 sign per 2.5 years and Jupiter at the rate of 1 sign per year, Saturn would be in Scorpio from age 15 years to 17 years and 6 months and in Sagitarius from 17 years 6 months to 20 years. From Sagitarius it aspects 7th house hence the later period cannot give marriage.
In the 18th year Jupiter would be in Aquarius. Being in the 7th house and aspecting Venus by Graha drishti it can give marriage. Hence the marriage can occur between the age of 17 years 5 months and 17 years and 6 months. In Sudarshan Chakra progressing at the rate of one sign per year, 18th year is signified by Capricorn which is in trines to A6, thus confirming the above specified data for marriage.
Applying Vimshottri dasa to determine marriage, at the age of 17 years 5 months Guru ji was running Mahadasa of Rahu and antar dasa of Saturn. Rahu has shub argala on the Navamsa lagan and Saturn is the lord of 7th house thus indicating marriage.
Hence the marriage could have occurred at the age of 12 years and between 17 years 5 months and 17 years 6 months. Since the Upapada lord, Jupiter, is in the second house, it indicates marrying a person who is already married. This is true specifically if the Upapada lord is a Graha that signifies low morals (like Moon) but in this case Upapada lord is Jupiter - significator of high morals. Thus it indicates marrying ones own wife again. Thus Guru ji got married at the age of 12 years but started living with his wife from his 18th year.
At the age of 27, Guru Nanak Dev ji went to take bath early in the morning in River Bias. He took a dip in the river but never came out. He reappeared after 3 days. This period of 3 days is recorded in the history as the time when Guru Nanak Dev ji had union with God. It was at this time that Guru ji renounced the world traveling far and wide to preach the name of God.
Timing of renunciation is done using Drig dasa. At the age of 27 Guru Nanak Dev ji was running Drig dasa of Aquarius. Aquarius being 12th from Upapada indicates rejection/renunciation of marriage. Guru jis horoscope has malefics in Arudha Lagan (Sun), 2nd from Arudha Lagan (Rahu) and 8th from Arudha Lagan (Ketu) resulting in Kema Dhruma yoga. This yoga if occurs with respect to Arudha lagan indicates parting with money. (Refer to Pt. Sanjay Raths translation of stanza 1.2.119 of Jaimini Maharishi Upadesa Sutras). Rahu is part of the yoga and is also the lord of Drig Dasa Rasi Aquarius resulting in manifestation of the yoga (refer to stanza 1.2.221 of Jamini Maharishis Upadesa Sutras). Saturn, as lord of Aquarius conjoins Moon (significator of rivers) explaining why Gurujis renunciation started from dip in the river. Moon also being 7th from Arudha Lagan gave Guru Nanak Dev ji everlasting fame.
History records that Guru jis journeys lasted till the age of 52 years and then he returned back to his family. At that age Guruji was running Narayana dasa of Aquarius and antardasa of Leo. Aquarius is the 7th house (signifying spouse) indicating Guru jis return back to his village to stay with his wife. While most astrologers tend to apply the Narayana Dasa principles to other Dasa, this is not correct. The Drig Dasa starts from the ninth house and its arrival in any sign influencing Arudha Lagan can give renunciation. The converse is true for Narayana Dasa. Thus, if the Drig Dasa of Aquarius gives renunciation, the Narayana Dasa of Aquarius gives Bhoga and since it is the seventh house itself, it can indicate separation from spouse in Drig Dasa and their meeting again when Narayana Dasa of the sign starts.

All of us have spiritual causal egg-shaped radiance surrounding us. Everyone has an aura. You all must have already seen or experienced auric field of others. Anything that has an atomic structure will have an aura-It is a unique bioplasmic, electromagnetic energy field that surrounds it. The atoms of animate life are more active and vibrant than that of inanimate matter. Energy field of tree plants animals, people are more easily detected and of course-experienced.
It is said that many Avatars (Those who have their eye of spiritual wisdom open) had the aura extending to kilometers-the greater the self realization the brighter and bigger the aura. The extension of this electromagnetic vibration was the cause of spiritual saints drawing large number of followers when ever they went the more vitalized your auric field is the more energy you will have the less likely you are to be affected by outside forces. Any weakness in general character will make you susceptible to outside influence, which would result in your being more easily used and manipulated. A weak auric projection would obviously result in health problems, and feeling out of control of life situation resulting in anger (another from of helpless) and other such negative emotions. The aura surrounds all of us. It is three dimensional and elliptical in shape. The shape, size, colors and clarity indicates specifically about your health status: Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
What is a halo? We all must have witnessed ancient paintings of Head of Minerva. Jesuit priests and aspect like a Rama, Buddha, and Krishna having a halo. Did you ever wonder as to what exactly was that etheric nimbus? During the opening of the third eye or complete spiritual illumination. The kundalini fire rises upwards through the spinal canal into the pons of medulla oblongata. The golden light radiating from the base of brain, at the back, gradually, increases in size and intensity until. It forms the nimbus, etheric or halo of the saint or anyone who has been illuminated. The pituitary body is surrounded by elliptic rose aura the pineal gland or the third eye of mysteries is blue in color-surrounded by radiating blue aura. In complete spiritual illumination-the aura includes all colors of the spectrum but blue decidedly predominates. The blue color of Shiva or complete illumination?
Coming back to normal humans, the aura gets weakened by poor diet, stress, alcohol, drugs, negative habits and improper psychic activity. Modern science tells us that human body is composed of subtle (?) Energy fields these energy emanations from the body includes energy fields generated within the body and others are received from outside and later transformed therein. A general blending of your energies and those around you takes place.
Astrological or stellar influences as are often describes in astrology are also absorbed and transformed into energy expression within the individual. Some planetary influences may affect an individual more strongly than other. With a little self-observation you can increase your perception of these influences and learn to harmonize your aura and the aura of place you live!
It is interesting here to mention about a clairvoyant who through mastery of inner plane of thought activated his third eye and could perceive atomic vibration. Once a young girl had come for healing to him. He gave her a reading of witnessing a wrecked ship in her aura. She was surprised as nothing that has ever happened to her or anybody she knew she started relating it to her past life. But to the psychic the clarity of this impression told him that it happened in the near present. Hitherto manifesting so in her aura. Then she recalled that she had read a novel about pirates and there were some thrilling scenes about ship wreckage and lot of emotional drama. Of course the mystery unfolded the vicarious pleasure of witnessing this thrilling drama this powerful thought from embedded itself in the subconscious aura and the psychic healer could perceive it. There are of course impression of past life and such thought forms which can be triggered by or stimulated through certain techniques of past life regression.
Whenever the electromagnetic frequency of your aura is close to the frequency of others. There is a natural rapport. It is not unusual to find others assuming that such rapport is sign of past life connections this may be so in some cases but is more likely to reflect a similar auric weaving that depicts closeness frequency on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. It can vice-verse where individual whose auras may have greatly different frequencies then your own ovoid, egg, shaped radiance. May feel some resistance.
You may have noticed the odd behavior of humans in an elevator they look as if they are waiting for a final countdown-or people who lean too close when they talk making you feel uncomfortable? Well, it does not always imply that there is something wrong but rather the subtle energy fields, which are interesting, are not in resonance with each other and subconscious message is-please keep out of my auric sheath. Or Give me my space.
Your aura charges the environment with an energy pattern in harmony with your own. Many people feel uncomfortable in sleeping in anothers bed-the breaking in period of beds, cloths, new houses is the time your aura takes to magnetize and harmonize the environment object etc with your own energy frequency. The peer pressures an ordinary individual.
How can we all see and perceive these electromagnetic vibrations? Well, it totally depends on our own since efforts on this direction-True unselfish love towards all beings-great and small-towards plants and animals is thought, words and deeds releases the blockages in our chakras. The realization of these forgotten rainbows is the first step towards complete spiritual illumination. Love opens the third eye by releasing emotional mental debris from in and around each chakra. Third eye is your sixth sense-six in the number ruled by Venus the Goddess of love. There are of course innumerable techniques to activate the former. And you can choose any one according to your own personal growth.
A very effective technique of seeing aura is to first realize its presence and be willing to see it. Svarodaya science of breath control and kriya yoga technique is also most powerful. Persistence and sincere attempt to bring harmony to friends and enemies alike is the key. You can also be guided by your own higher self within-whispering eternal truth in your inner ear. Remember we dont have to learn to see Auras. We have to re-use our version for the same. Any teacher, master or Gurus task is to help you remember what you already know. Essential knowledge of Chakras and planets would also be helpful in bringing about a clear day when you can see forever!

The condition of fifth house/ 5th Lord, Moon & Mercury have to be analyzed to know the condition of the mind.
