Among the astikas (those who have faith in our scriptures) we find that some follow astrological planetary movements and its influence on their life very carefully. In fact they are very concerned about the influence of faraway planets like Saturn on their lives. If the influence is malignant, they would not hesitate to even perform prayaschittams (expiatory rites to alleviate its influence).
But Earth is the planet we live on. Its condition impacts us directly. Yet we find only a few people truly concerned about the state of this planet – ecologically and otherwise! While we find people spending sleepless nights and talking incessantly about the influence of faraway planets on their lives, barely a few are truly concerned about planet Earth, the planet we actually live on!
