About Martin Rai
I have devoted 12 years to vedic astrology and vedic sciences. Not because I intented to do this , but because I was fed up with the pandits and astrologers in Holland. I can fully understand why Prince Sidharta rejected the practices of the brahman priests. My ancestors are from north-India but I have been grown up in the kingdom of Holland. After the Uk Holland has the second highest number of Indians in Europe, they were banned by the English after the sepoy war. Holland is a country wich solely depends on international trade, commerce and agriculture. The dutch cows are well fed and famous troughout the world. In Holland one can find all races and religions from all over the world. People share food, ideas and knowledge. It is therefore a most interesting place. In Holland there are many universities and libraries and interesting to know Holland has the higest number of bookstores, except Mein Kampf no book is banned.
As most people I also experienced strange events. These events, like predictive dreams and sudden flashes of clairvoyance are not rare even contacts with spirits are not rare. I am convinced that most people experience these divine effects. But most of us ignore these mysterious happenings.
I was always interested in the the magic behind numbers and signs and consulted many fortunetellers. Mathematics and science were always my favourite subjects. My mothers family belong to a ancient family of rishi"s, my grand-grandfather was known for his almost magical knowledge of the divine and ayurveda.
As most young kids in Holland we indulged in the fast life of the west, pubs, clubs, sportcars, traveling to exotic places and a luxurious lifestyle. After my father fell ill and experied I was quite upset with the docters, I noticed that the healthcaresystem in the west was suffering from very serious drawbacks, eventhough the healthcaresystem is very costly. The interest of the pharmaceutical compagnies is far more important than the interest of the patient.
I decided that I should go back to the roots of divine knowledge, India and Nepal. One of my friends just builded a school in the mountains of Nepal. He asked me to do some voluntary service and become teacher. On my way back to Holland I landed in India. I was shocked and suprised, perhabs overwhelmed.
Later I returned to India and met a pretty nice lady lving in Bandra near Pali Hill. The gods were with me. Bandra is one of the few well to do places in India. The place were the jetset and many bollywood stars live.
It was an interesting start, the beautifull glamourlady was suprisingly very interested in gems, astrology and ayurveda. I was brought to the best astrologers and nummerologers from Mumbai. I met one of the best ayurvedic docters in India, dr Dillip Trivedi. He had a suprising knowledge of both astrology, ayurveda, gems and other vedic sciences.
I started to learn ayurveda and astrology and everything from gems, the hard way. I quickly discovered that books are very limited, and good books very rare to find . I visited hundreds of astrologers troughout India. Whenever I heard that an astrologer had some divine knowledge I visited him (sadly i have not met any female astrologer yet).
Most astrologers liked me, Indians are very firendly after all, they though it interesting that some one from Europe (eventhough I am Indian) came back to his roots to find the secrets of the veda"s and other scripures. Because I kept close relation with the astrologers they shared some of their secrets. Secrets we cannot find in any astrological book.
One of my journeys in India I heard about a mysterious groups of Sahdu"s living in the hymalaya guarding a gigantic old king cobra. I found it an interesting story and decided to visit these holy men. The sadhu"s were not very friendly, they were clearly fed up with all those tourists. They even treatened me with their Trishul and tulwar while running after me.
We agreed that I would pass the test. I should go to the village and buy eggs and booz (sadhu"s like alcohol). If the cobra would eat one or more eggs I could stay, or else I should give them money and go from there. The King Cobra was not aware of any of this, he (or she) was fast asleep in the hole under the tree. Than after a few hours the snake came to life. The erected snake was gigantic, the snake looked at me but did not apear to be dangerous. The snake looked at me for a few miutes ad than decided to eat the eggs. I though the cobra to be a teethless friendly monster.
In the evening and night the sahdu"s drunk and smoked ganja and went into trance. Than one of the sadhu"s started screaming to me, clearly under trance. He yelled me that all those friends were fake and that I should give up my wordly possesions to follow the truth. The truth will come the hard way, but lord Shiva would protect. The sadhu"s told me that lord Shiva was my protector and that no enemy could harm me, therefore I should never have any fear or doubts. Lord Shiva would take away seen and unseen dangers.
Back In Holland I decided to give up my wordly possesions and study the life of the normal people. I discovered that most people have a very hard life, even in Holland. There are very few people withouth problems even in a rich country as Holland. It is not at all rosy. Every house has its hidden burdens.
Later I decided that artha (wealth) is part of life and that rejecting wealth is only part of the truth. It is however true that one can only enjoy material wealth when one have been poor. One can only enjoy heatlh when one has been sick.
Life is mysterious, vedic sciences reveal some of the mysteries of life itself.
After a brief interuption I have decided to again devote time to the vedic sciences and filosofy. The world has landed in a very dangerous and difficult stage. A worldwar is looming and mother nature itself is also fed up of those ants who terrorize her and others. The period of cleansing has started and will last another 5 years. After this period a new world will rise. Paradise.........even the christian blible reveals in the last book of revelation that in comming paradise we all will wear gems and will use leaves of trees to cure the sick.
