Prophet Mohammad’s birth date

Posted by Irus on March 1, 2015

In continuation of the last article where i explored Krishna’s birth date now its time to explore Prophet Mohammad’s birth date. Wikipedia provides no certain date but gives a round about figure of 570AD.

It is obvious that when someone who is as powerful as a messenger or prophet descends on Earth the planetary alignments in the sky would be fairly powerful. Therefore i set out to check whether any powerful alignments were happening close to this date.

Yes there were some very important planetary alignments happening within a decade of the given date of 570AD  as given below in this chart.


As can be seen all planets are in their houses of strength with the exception of Moon which is in the 2nd house in Aquarius. It is not evident from the chart above but moon and Saturn are conjunct which is evident from their degree positions. This is shows for a personality who is trying to structure (saturn) emotions (moon) of his larger family (moon in Aquarius – Kumbha meaning family). This is a somewhat painful combination to have in ones chart. However provides for the foundation of swift justice, exemplary punishment and strict laws for which middle east is even now well known. This sort of a personality would also be a necessary force to have any impact on nomadic, lawless desert tribes of long ago in the middle east. Even today middle east rolls in oil money and needs strict discipline to keep it from slipping.

Besides the above the chart is full of auspicious yogas as given below


Now the question arises what precise moment were the planets so aligned to have produced someone of the magnitude and impact of Prophet? That is given below in this chart.



It so happens that this day is also a Monday which is widely believed to be the day of his birth.

The above details are the most likely point in time when Prophet Mohamad might have been born in Mecca.

Lord Buddha’s birth date

Posted by Irus on March 1, 2015

In continuation of the series covering probable birthdates for Krishna, Prophet Mohammad and Aryabhatta now it is time to look at Lord Buddha’s birth date. It is advised to read those articles before continuing because some concepts of deriving birthdates are common as are some other themes and will not be repeated here.

Lord Buddha’s birth date is given as either 583 BC or 480 BC in Wikipedia. After checking for Aryabhattas birth date which was shifted from 813BC to 499AD – a shift of 1312 years and not finding any important planetary alignments in sky for 583BC or 480BC it was logical to check for years at 583bc+1312 years – 1895BC and 480BC+1312years at 1792 BC years.

Another clue was Zoroasters birth date close to that of Buddha. How could two important figures born so close to each other have no important planetary alignments in sky?

As such it was imperative to explore planetary alignments close to 1895BC and 1792BC. The former yielded no results but the latter date yielded results for 1787BC and 1806BC. After analyzing the charts it was clear the the 1787 chart belonged to Buddha and the latter probably to Zoroaster. The 1787BC chart is given below



(The debate on his birthplace being Kapileshwar or Lumbini is moot for this post because they both are very close longitudinally.)



The Interesting part about this chart is Sun (ego) is conjunct Ketu, wherever ketu is placed we try to move away from that aspect, in this case Buddhas struggle with his ego is well known. Another feature of this chart is Jupiter in capricorn which is in the sign of its fall as such Buddha was striving for salvation. This also makes it clear the difference between an avtar and messenger/prophet where there is no struggle for liberation on the part of Avtar.

Finally besides other prominent yogas the chart has Sadhu and Tapaswi Yoga and Budha was a known ascetic.

Aryabhatta’s birth date

Posted by Irus on March 1, 2015

After identifying Shri Krishna’s birth date in the earlier post it was important to derive the Kali Yuga date which was identified as 6th November 4390BC.

Aryabhatta mentioned that at the time of his 23rd birthday 3600 years of kaliyuga had passed. Presumably his birthday was then 813BC instead of 499AD as mentioned in Wikipedia. Also in such a scenario astronomical verification is not necessary.

Therefore a shift 1312 years is noted in Aryabhattas birth date.

It is quite astounding that in a country where even family birth/death details are recorded precisely that such notable figures would be found to have controversial birth dates.

The importance of keeping an oral tradition of history becomes very clear in such a situation and role of regional languages in preserving the cultural ethos apparent.
