Janma Samaya – Time Of Birth Calculation Hindu Religion – Janma Kala

Janma Kala or Janma Samaya is the time of birth and other calculations in Hindu religion. A survey of literature on astrology of ancient seers shows the following timings recognized at birth: Bhupatana – falling on earth - Coming of the head from the womb. - Coming of the whole body out of the womb Nala Chedana (cutting of the umbilical cord) to separate the baby from the mother. Rodana (first cry), i.e. baby’s first independent breath. All these are taken as standards by several authors. Bhupatana cannot be considered an ideal time of birth, as some babies enter the world feet first rather than the head (inverse coming or breech birth).

Vidhi means procedure, the technique. Japa is the recitation of a string of words called mantra or prayer. Japa Vishi is the method or technique of chanting japa mantras in Hindu religion. The rules prescribed for japa are mentioned in Tantra books. It is said in Kularnava Tantra (XV:113) that “while one is repeating a mantra, one must have complete faith, devotion, mental application, and submission to the deity, and one should intensely contemplate upon the subtle form of the God or Goddesses. In japa, the mind should be filled with the visual sensation of the image of the deity, excluding all else. This is called bhavana or anusandhana. It is mentioned in Gandharva Tantra (XVIII:40) that “japa should not be performed too fast, nor too slowly. The meaning of the mantra must never be lost sight of.” There are three types of japa. These three varieties are described in Mantra Yoga Samhita (64:3-4). Vachika, that is accompanied by audible sounds of uttered words Upamsu, in which w
