Vishwaghasra Paksha – Prediction For (Trayodashi – 13 day fortnight)
Vishwaghasra Paksha will take place from September 8 to September 20, 2021, as determined after the meticulous observation of the dates of Vikram Samvat 2078. Holy Scriptures describe the effect of this lunation as terrible, harmful, and inauspicious. The short period is called a ‘Vishwaghasra Paksha’of the lunar month and, it indicates terrible events & manslaughter! One such occurrence was in Kartik month of 1941, resulting in a tremendous human loss in Second World War. Generally, after mathematical calculation of sun and moon, Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha (lunar fortnight) in the Indian calendar gets 14, 15, or 16 days. In the case of the waning of a day, a fortnight gets 14 days.
Increment of a day, where the increase of period is for more than 24 hours where a tithi stretches to another day, the fortnight period gets of 16 days. Where there is no increase or decrease in the period, the fortnight gets 15 days. A fortnight gets 13 days, after precise calculation of sun and moon, due to waving to two days, and it is called Vishwaghasra fortnight. In the Mahabharata time, there were two such back to back Vishwaghasra Pakshas, and it is a rare event. Many scriptures mention the inauspicious and terrible effects of this Vishwaghasra fortnight.
“Anekyug Sahasrayaad Daivyogaat Prajayate,
Trayodashdine Pakshah Tada Sanharte Jagat.” – Megh Mahoday.
It means, in ages comes a fortnight of 13 days to decimate the people. A fortnight of 13 days gives people many diseases, inflation, enmity, nuisance, violence, and other sinister effects. It causes the disintegration of a country in the world means there’s a change in geography. An atmosphere of unrest spreads everywhere in society. Many other scriptures describe the sinister effects of this fortnight- “Yada Ch Jayte Pakshas Trayodash Dinatmakah,
Bhavellok Kshayo Ghoro Rund Mund Malayuta Mahi.
Trayodah Dinah Paksho Bhaved Varshasht Kantare,
Tada Nagar Bhangah Syat Chhatrabhango Maharghata.”
Due to this 13 days fortnight, the world and India May experience instability and turbulence in political, financial, and social situations. There can be discord, conflict and scattering and split into political parties. There can be sabotage, violence, explosions, and a change of leadership. There may be social unrest due to the possibility of war, earthquakes, famine, landslides, and other natural disasters that will cause massive loss of people and money after or in this period. There will be massive inflation in daily use products. Society will mourn the death of a prominent and influential person.
After this Paksha, a civil war can break out against the taliban rule in Afghanistan. India May see high tensions on its northern border too. Holy scriptures have forbidden marriage, mundan (shaving head of a child), house warming, upanayana (janeau) and other auspicious ceremonies in this fortnight of 13 days.
As per Jyotirnibandha-
“Upnayanam Parinayanam Veshmarambhadi Karmani,
Yatram Dwikshay Pakshe Kuryat
Na Jijeevishu Purushah.”
Based on the above mentioned mantra, some scholars consider auspicious ceremonies forbidden but, Sage Kashyap has opined in Muhurt Chintamani that if there are favourable planetary positions in the centre or mool trikone, then the evil influence of Vishwaghasra fortnight cease to exist.
