Shilpa Dhar launched the book, Venus Mars – Love and Marriage, authored by Acharya P. Khurrana, leading astrologer of international repute, during a specially organised press conference held on 19 July, at Hotel Mount View, Chandigarh.
Mr. Khurrana welcomed the august gathering and gave a detailed introduction of the book. Since time immemorial, in the history of Vedic astrology, predictions regarding marriages were prophesised by the art of horoscope matching. But the question here is, whether all those marriages are successful. He has unraveled the answers in his book, Venus Mars – Love & Marriage.
In his book, he has highlighted the importance of studying Jupiter, while matching horoscopes. He has also mentioned and quoted many examples of horoscopes in his book.
Thereafter, Acharya Khurrana talked about his profession. He stated that there are many intellectuals, across the country who have been inquisitive to know about the continuation of his legacy. There have been a number of instances when some top bureaucrats and doctors have approached him with the request to allow them to carry forward his legacy; however, he has always refused, because he didn’t find any spiritual mettle in them.
Despite the fact that a number of people had approached him to allow them to carry forward his legacy, he was unable to decide until he met Shilpa Dhar, who shared the dais with him. She selflessly passed all the tough examinations of the guru, thereby today he felt honored to pass on his legacy to Miss Shilpa Dhar, while blessing her with a shawl. Mr. Khurrana also confessed that 19 July 2021, is the most important day of his life, as he has chosen a suitable disciple to carry forward his legacy after him.
On this occasion, he quoted the lines of Chanakaya, “legacy is not necessarily to be passed on to your own blood but to the one who qualifies for it”. Besides, he stressed that wisdom should be imparted before you leave the earthly plane. However, he declared that he will not retire from his work.
He also stated that every other person he met wanted to be an overnight star, unlike Shilpa Dhar, who had tremendous patience to wait for this day. Apart from being a spiritual person, she is an extremely talented and hardworking writer, who has authored four books. Her last book, Seven Lessons Cinema Taught Me, had an outstanding achievement on Amazon. “I once told her to author a book, which to my surprise was penned down by her in just three days. Writing two hundred pages, in just one go speaks volumes about her dedication,” said Mr. Khurrana.
Shilpa Dhar shared that this was the most precious day of her life, when her guru, Acharya P. Khuranna ji has bestowed upon her his legacy. She stated that what makes her guru different from the rest is his Divine connection with the Supreme Lord. Whatever he prophesised for her has come true so far.
She compared him to Sage Parashara and Sage Jamini, who have contributed in giving a new dimension to Vedic Astrology, known as Parashara and Jamini Vedic Astrology. She quoted that the day would not be far when a new algorithm of divination science will be contributed and known for generations to come, by the name of Acharaya P. Khurrana, decoding Astrology. As times have changed and we are all sitting in the era of Kalyuga, the concepts and trends of the ancient Vedic astrology are to be viewed with the aid of new lenses.
She stressed upon the fact that we have a scientific approach towards all human problems, be it Vastu Shastra or Jotish Shastra. She emphasised that her guru never promoted bias, superstition, or any myth. In his book Venus Mars, he has stressed on the superstition that revolves around being a Manglik.
In conclusion, she said that without the blessing of a true guru, a person can’t cross the tough ocean of life and thanked her Guru with all her soul for being a Sakshat Paramatma for her.
During this occasion, Mr. Gurpreet Ghuggi, actor and politician, who was the esteemed guest of honor at the event, congratulated Shilpa Dhar and P. Khuranna for his 34th book launch. Mr Ghuggi said that Shilpa Dhar is also known for being a good actress; besides, being a pious and spiritual soul and he was very happy to know that Mr Khurrana has passed on his legacy to her.
Apart from this, many Bollywood celebrities including Jackie Shroff, Karan Kundra, Meet Brothers and television stars, wished Shilpa good luck for this endeavour.
