What needs to be discussed is to observe how the two horoscopes of Yogiraj and Bhagavan Krishna match.
Bhagavan Krishna’s Advent being in the earth essence (Taurus sign), Lord of Death is the air essence i.e. the Gemini sign. Death at the air essence, the place of Readvent is in the 5th house, Libra is the 5th house from Gemini. Later we note the Ascendant of Yogiraj is this Libra.
Bhagavan Krishna’s Ascendant Lord Venus is posited in the 3rd house of Cancer. Ascendant Lord of Yogiraj, Venus being in conjunction with the constellation at Mercury is in connection with the 10th house (karma or action) and the 9th house’s 2nd and 7th Lords are connected. Venus of Yogiraj is connected with the 4th and 5th Lord and that is posited in the 11th house away from Bhagavan Krishna’s 5th Lord Mercury. Position of Venus in Both of Them is in Cancer. Therefore from this it can be deduced that Both of Them are bound by their Own discipline to exterminate the religious decadence.
He was employed in government service (Military Engineering PWD). He had five children, two sons and three daughters. His job being a transferable one, He would send most of his salary to His wife Kashimoni Devi, who judiciously managed the house-hold keeping a part for himself.
midst maintaining social, family, official responsibilities He got initiated in Kriyayoga sadhana by His Guru Babaji and practised sadhana austerely. He got His children married. His second son Dukari Lahiri Mahasaya had an attack of insanity; one of His married daughters died of Asiatic Cholera. One daughter was widowed after marriage so she came to reside at her father’s house. After retirement though He drew a handsome pension, since He had many incumbents, He imparted tuitions to Maharajas.
These are few of the innumerable impediments He caused Himself to undergo. Thus we can deduce that He scrupulously remained within the family precincts and practised sadhana. This remarkable unparalled juxtaposition of family life with sadhana cannot be noticed in thousands of years. Amidst all these he reached the pinnacle of sadhana within four years. He disagreed to the life of a celibate or ascetic because this was not normal. All these mental afflictions He caused to plague upon Him, so that common man abides by His example and practises sadhana simultaneously with social, official and family responsibilities. That mankind like him should not be weighed down with sorrow, upheavals and tempests of everyday life which was possible only if this internal sadhana emanating from eternity was regularly practised is His Divine Ideal. He was a firm believer of the adage ‘Practise what you preach’
Another pertinent point about His Advent should be noted. At the time of His Holy Advent, India was at the height of her political, historical, commercial, literary and spiritual glory. Nature in all her splendour summoned all her aspects to welcome the Divine Descent. The planetary conjunctions were in an extremely favourable juxtaposition with each other.
[Books on the essence of Shyamacharan Lahiree Mahasaya ‘Purana Purusha Yogiraj Sri Shyamacharan Lahiree’ and ‘Who is This Shyamacharan’ authored by Mahamahopadhyaya Yogacharya Dr. Ashoke Kumar Chatterjee is a must read for all soul seekers. The second book is an inimitable contribution to indology.]
