======Part 1/2[Me:] Numerology became much popular in recent times. Wikipedia quotes that the word NUMEROLOGY is not recorded before 1907. Is there any evidence that it was practiced in earlier days, in any other forms. ?
[Kannan M] : The origin of numerology dates back to the first yuga in the Indian calendar. In fact it had been in vogue when God Created mankind and gave four Vedas, 6 sastras, and 64 Manuvigyanas to the Rishis who were also created by God.
The ancient Rishis of yore who were well versed in the Vedas and astrology got this knowledge from God during their meditations. God bequeathed this knowledge to those deserving few.
Those Rishis like Vishwamithra had extraordinary powers. They could destroy the world by Brahmastra. Brahamasiras was even more powerful than Bhramastra. They just had to aim with an arrow and utter a Divine Mantra which had the power to create Brahmastra in that arrow.
They could aim it at any object and that object was annihilated in toto. Such rishis had the power to sense and evaluate good and bad vibrations from any names. That is how they invented the good and destroying mantras by intuition. And that is how they also divined numerology.
Later it came into practice by disciplic succession. In those days many from Egypt and Babylon came to India to learn about Vedas and other sciences developed by the Rishis.
The earliest recorded history of numerology was from such tourists from Egypt and Babylon to India. It was here that the Chaldean system was developed under the influence of the Hebrews. Such tourists also came from China, Rome, Japan, and Greece to learn numerology from Indian Sages.[Me:] Being the founder of Astronomical Association in IIT, and trained by famous astrologer Shree.Krishnamoorthy you researched into astrology as well. But what was the factor that encouraged you to focus more in Numerology?
[Kannan M] : I learned astrology from Jyothish Marthand Krishnamoorthy 46 years ago. It was he who invented the Scientific Modern Stellar Astrology. He himself says that astrology can help you to know only what is in store for you. You cannot prevent the inevitable by consulting an astrologer. Only you can console yourself that so many bad things or good events will happen to you at certain times.
But Numerology acts to please the planets and gives you an armour to lessen their evil effects. If you make a friend of your enemy you fear less danger from him. At least if you make a truce with him you can escape from his attacks.
Name numerology as per my system protects you with an armour which cannot be penetrated by the evil vibrations of the unfavourable planets.
Your brain works more efficiently, you turn out more work in less time and you become efficient and that is how you become successful. Moreover numerology prevents dangers like premature death, divorce, strikes, lock outs, Government raids, and ensures smooth running of the family. These factors constitute your success.[Me:] Who pioneered the art of Numerology? I heard that a person named Cheiro perfected the art and brought it into mainstream. Is that so? Was there any other key personalities who popularized numerology?
[Kannan M] : To my certainty it was evident from the times of Rama Krishna and Balarama, that numerology was practiced from their times starting from several thousand years ago. Others practiced in their respective languages and scripts.
Later Cheiro wanted to verify all this and get personal knowledge from the descendants of the Rishis in Himalayas and he devised this knowledge in English.
Hence Cheiro’s work was his interpretation without any reference to the vibrational measurements of the rishis to judge if the name or number was good or bad for a particular Individual.
However though many were badly named and did not have any luck some had success in their lives after name change. So the science became famous.[Me:] Numerology focuses only on English language alphabets. Can it be applied for other languages? If not, then why? Why does numerology confines only to English?
[Kannan M] : To my certainty it was evident from the times of Rama, Krishna and Balarama, that numerology was practiced from their times starting from several thousand years ago. Other countries too derived this gift of God and practiced it in their respective languages and scripts.
Later Cheiro wanted to verify all this from the original source, that is India, and get personal knowledge from the Rishis in Himalayas and he interpreted this knowledge in English.
But these descendants who taught Cheiro did not have the sense and intuition like the ancient masters to smell, scan, realize, and interpret the good and bad vibrations that emanates from alphabets, numbers, names, and name numbers. So Cheiro’s knowledge of Numerology was perfunctory.
Hence Cheiro’s interpretation was without any reference to the vibrational measurements of the name. But these vibes were so necessary in name numerology to judge if the name or number was good or bad for a particular Individual.
By his system many were named badly and they did not have any luck. Some were named well by accident and they had success in their lives after name change. The world only looks at success. It ignores failures. Like this the occult science of numerology became famous.
Why English is mostly used in Name Numerology? English is the major spoken and written language understood by most people all over the world. Most of the further researches were made in English to practice name numerology and it has become the most popular language for this occult science.
Numerology had been practised by other countries with other scripts. Chinese Numerology is most famous where they use signs and symbols for language scripts. However nowadays even the Chinese desire to have their names in English language now to achieve global success.[Me:] How did the connections like "Number 1 ruled by SUN" were established? How does Astrology comes into the picture? Can you elaborate in simpler terms?
[Kannan M] : Such knowledge about the numbers and the association with planets was bequeathed by God to various enlightened souls in all parts of the world. That is why numerology is famous throughout the world. For example consider this passage from my web site's page called Science of Luck.
Here below, we quote from Apocrypha, related to The Holy Bible. In this the word wisdom relates to all sciences and knowledge from atomic energy, astronomy and numerology. (From The Book Of King Solomon).
"For God Himself gave me an unerring knowledge of the things that are, To know the constitution of The world,
The Beginning and The End And Middle of All Times,
The alterations of The Solstices,
The Changes in The Seasons,
The positions of The Planets,
The Nature of living creatures, And
The thoughts of Men.
All things that are either secret or manifest I learned, For, He, That is The Artificer of All Things, Taught me This Wisdom."
The above passage is evidence that God belongs to the entire creation and he gave this knowledge to the deserving few in each country. As Cherio decided it originated and was best understood in India he revealed this fact in his book.
In this context it is worth considering Lord Krishna’s utterances in Srimad Bagavad Gita in Chapter 4, slokas 1 and 2.
In these slokas Lord Krishna states as follows.
“I taught this imperishable yoga (knowledges) to Vivaswan. Viwaswan taught it to Manu. Manu taught it to Iksvaku. All the Raja Rishis who came by disciplic succession were knowing this. With lapse of Time, this knowledge was forgotten and lost to the world”.
After saying this Lord Krishna taught the original secrets of knowledge to Arjuna.[Me:] Vedic astrology recommends to name a person with certain letters that are relevant to birth stars. (Ex. for ASWANI - Name should start with CHE CHU CHO LA CHE) But Numerology seems to deviate from that perspective by suggesting different starting alphabets. In other words, names formed using Numerology does not seem to adhere to the vedic standards. If astrology and numerology are connected, why does this anomaly present?
[Kannan M] : Vedic astrology has been overtaken by Modern Stellar Astrology which is more scientific. Vedic astrology contains several thousands of rules and several thousands of exceptions. It is totally unable to explain the differences of twins born in a small interval of minutes or seconds.
One of these twins is tall. Another is short. One is brilliant. Another is an idiot. One gets married and the other remains a bachelor. One dies soon and the other lives long. But the horoscope drawn for both these twins is the same.
So Vedic Astrology is out dated. This is lucidly explained in the page labelled Horary Astrology in my web site.
Modern days astrologers lack the acumen and intellectual powers of the sages who bequeathed astrology and who could calculate faster than computers.
That is why traditional astrology recommendations are invalid. This sort of recommendation sprang from money mongers who pretended to know numerology and invented their own systems and rules. That is why it is unwise to follow these recommendations.[Me:] Let's say a person's horoscope is bad or the planetary positions are not in his good favor. Then, wont it be just good enough to do the "parikaaras" (as suggested by astrology) to reduce or overcome the ill-effects? Why does Numerology consultants promote that changing name will change everything?
[Kannan M] : Astrology is just a science of prediction. Numerology is much more. Astrology emphatically declares that whether you consult one astrologer or thousand best astrologers whatever destined to happen will alone happen. These Parikaras have no effect. Again this idea was promoted by astrologers who wanted to make money.
Whereas in numerology you get an invisible astra, armour or dress or sheath of a good favourable vibrating name which modifies your brain and intellect and it also makes the people who deal with you see you, like you, look upon you with respect and do good to you.
Even here you would go to a good numerologist only if your astrology permits you to do. It is like Markandeya got a boon from Shiva to avoid his previously fated death. If your fate is bad you will go to one of the millions of bogus numerologists and end up as a failure.
Most clients who come to me do so only after losing money with such bogus numerologists.[Me:] Does changing one's name or modifying or editing the alphabets is enough to ensure the good effects will turn on us? Post changing; is there any practices / procedures to be followed for a while?
[Kannan M] : Mere editing or changing alphabets is futile. It is like groping in the dark without knowing any directions. The resultant name, its name components, and the name number should all vibrate in good values of wave lengths on the Lecher antenna.
And whether it is the luckiest name should be confirmed by horary astrology and from your birth date horoscope. The name must give increased body and mind energy readings on a scientific wonder instrument called energy meter or Acmograph.
After I give the corrected name, I will give a few exercises for the client to identify him/herself with the name and help his/her subconscious mind to build him/her up for all round success. The client have to practice these procedures for an unbroken period of 362 or some more days.All it takes is about 15 minutes per each day.[Me:] Does 'correcting' the name by adding or reducing the alphabets is enough? Or do you recommend to change the whole name?
[Kannan M] : If you want to be a movie star or a celebrity you can change your name. For that my fees are much more than the normal fees. Therefore, I manage my work by removing the negative vibes, incorporating the positive vibes in their existing names and make the name really lucky.
If it is impossible to do it, I discuss with my client about this ask him to go for a totally different name. He is allowed to give me choices and I choose the best one, alter it suitably and give that name to him. However it rarely happens.
Most people do not like to totally change their names. But if they do they are open to enjoy much luckier results like total change of character and far better income.[Me:] Numerology is a science. And scientific experiments / processes are valued by their success rates. Let's be fair here. So what is the success rate of name changes, based on your numerology predictions / corrections?
[Kannan M] : Numerology is an occult science. Vibrations constitute radiation and that is constituted by wave lengths and frequencies. Is there any scientific instrument to measure these occult wave lengths and frequencies coming from names? Only Lecher antenna can do that and it has been verified by modern sciences like quantum physics.
Most of my clients are happy. It is mandatory that they must respect my advice and follow the practices with religious fervour. Most of them do that and those who are lazy to follow these procedures get only partial results. But they do not complain since it is their fault. So I am proud to say that I have more than 95 % success rate. [Me:] Numerology though well received, does not seem to get complete support from all Astrology practitioners. Major reason cited being, "Numerology is from the west, which is recently pushed in". Do you have anything to comment?
[Kannan M] : Astrologers envy the income of numerologists. For any consultation in astrology you get a pittance of a fee like 50 Rs. Or 100 Rs. But even bogus numerologists get from his clients about 7500 Rs for a name. Therefore astrologers become jealous and deprecate numerology.
