Sree Jayachandra Raj from Changanacherry, Kerala is one of the noted astrologers from Kerala. Realizing the astrological importance of Poovanpara mala, (9.47110N, 76.81786E) being a very unique “Shiva Gulika” Kshetra (temple) used to refer people to that temple for resolving their day to day problems in life. With the increase in number of people going there, eventually Sree Jayachandra Raj started going there himself, every Friday for prayers as well as to answer astrological questions of his own devotees. Eventually he emerged as the leader (guru) of the team and he started chanting Mantras during Friday visits and the disciples started following the mantra’s by offering their flowers as pushparchana in the temple, after which astrological “prasna” was conducted to answer questions of the people assembled in the temple.
A few decades ago, on one Friday while the Pooja and Prasna was being conducted, one of the locals came to the temple to dedicate a calf to the temple– a common practice in Kerala. Observing the bad omens when the calf was brought to the temple, Sree Jayachandra Raj informed the temple president that any fatalities to this particular calf would mean disaster to the temple president as well as the person who offered the calf. As a routine solution, Mrityunjaya homam was suggested and the group went on with their routines. Following Tuesday, temple workers found the calf tangled in ropes and lying dead on the steep slope on the northern side of the temple. Authorities panicked and requested astrological help to identify the immediate possible remedies.
|Following Friday, the
team assembled at the temple to do the routine Pooja
followed by astrological Prasna. Usually 12 lamps are lit
on the “rasi vilakku” to do the prasna. On this day,
flames jumped up from the Rasi Vilakku like a fountain and
came down as if in a fountain, with out harming any of the
people who have assembled around this oil lit lamp. Entire
audience was curious to know the reason behind this
During the Prasna (astrological root cause analysis), Sree Jayachandra Raj proclaimed the presence of Devi Adi Parasakthi at a location 6 yojanas arial distance away (1.5 kilometers) at 120 degrees south east direction from this temple. Sree Jayachandra Raj could visualize a confluence of five different three cascade water falls. He predicted about a large banyan tree on the northern side of the one and a half furlong (301.752 meters) river.
|A person by the name
Markos, who had already passed away, lived all alone on
the eastern side of the Banyan tree on a small house built
in a platform with 18 steps from the river.
Markos used to see the Devi as if in some form of
hallucination and used to worship Devi on a trident.
Markos had 29 cents of land where his house was located.
