Recently, while sitting in the office, I was asked by someone about a travel related question, pondering over that, I was interrupted by a staff member,-”Why dont use a disha-shool here?”
Under the concept of Muhurat and Prashna in the realm of Jyotish, we study Disha-Shool.
Disha-Shool is something which translates to an issue which can pinch like a thorn when traveling in that direction. We often see that bags are packed, everything is done and on the very day of traveling, some mishap happens, like theft of any valuable item, an accident, missing a flight or you falling ill. It is possible that your direction of travel had a Disha-Shool that day.
Disha-Shool in a direction makes the travel fruitless, at times when Yogini of that day, Chandra and Rahu also are not favorable, then a native can face huge loss while traveling.
The concept of Disha-shool works on the basis of a day-wise system. Following is the list of Disha-shool on different days, the directions show what directions not to travel on that day.
However, at times we have to travel to these directions, even when there is a Disha-Shool, simple remedies come to rescue at that time. One of the easiest and simplest remedies is the remedy of Prasthan (प्रस्थान).
Prasthan means to depart. The remedy is to keep a handkerchief or any cloth, which you use, at someone else’s home in the direction of travel on a suitable day for traveling avoiding the Disha-Shool.
The Prasthan can have rice and coins tied in it, otherwise you can just keep the handkerchief.
Then on the day of travel, you can pick the Prasthan handkerchief or cloth from that place and keep on traveling.
Let us say, you have to travel on Monday in the East direction, then keep a Prasthan on Sunday at a place which would be in your direction of travel.
One thing to keep in mind is that once you pick the Prasthan after starting the travel, please don't return and keep on traveling.
Disha-Shool is an everyday astrology concept, it is easy to follow and can help you to ease out your travel worries.
