The number 5 series

Late Shri Pandit Sethuraman was one of the finest exponents of the sublime science of Numerology. He speaks very highly of the number 5 (five), and lists some of the numbers under 5 as lucky - 23, 32, 41 - getting pride of place.

Of these, 32 is an interesting number. It gives success in cycles. Pandit Sethuraman talks of the great Raja Vickram Aadityah, in whose life the number 32 recurred in many events.

23 is the most fortunate and extremely important if it appears in the forecasting of events. Cheiro refers to it as the "Royal Star of the Lion". It works to its full potential only if the person has a go-getting attitude. It is a number of valour and bravery; a number that truly depicts "fortune favours the brave".

Pandit Sethuraman says that natives of name number 41 will achieve success and command people. This causes them to overestimate their own abilities and they start getting too far ahead of themselves, and this ends up in failure. They should guard against over-confidence.

Number 1 series

Pandit Sethuraman ascribes royal qualities to the number 1. Number 1 people tend to be honest, principled and have a high self-respect. They are possessed of great leadership abilities, strong oratorical skills and command respect from their colleagues for their sense of justice and fairplay. The Sun is the king of the heavens and thus these people have kingly qualities and a regal bearing. If the influence of the Sun is negative, they tend to be vain and dishonest.

The best name numbers in the 1 series are: 19, 37, 46, 55 and 73.

Why not Hindustan?

My friend from my days at Bombay University, Sameer Gokhale, responded by email to my previous post on Bharatvarsha. Sameer asks me how Hindustan fared as a name. Here is my reply to him.


Name number is supposed to be in harmony with date of birth and total (fadic) number.
India was created on 15.8.1947. So date is 6 (1+5 =6) and total is 8 (1+5+8+1+9+4+7 = 35; 3+5 =8). India is 3, which is Guru (Jupiter) number, while 6 is Shukra (Venus) and 8 is Shani (Saturn). 3 is the enemy of 6 AND 8. The friends for 6 and 8 are 5 (Mercury, Budh), 6 and 8. Therefore the name of the country should total to 5, 6 or 8. But as 8 is a bad number overall, it should be avoided as a name number. In order to offset the negative effects of 8 as the fadic number, you use the positive numbers 5 and 6 in the name. Hence Bharat (15) , Bharatvarsh (32) and Bharatavarsh/Bharatvarsha (33) are good.

Hindustan totals to 34; a 7 (Ketu) and 7 is an average number. Doesn' t have the power of numbers like 1, 3, 5, 6 and 9 which are positive numbers. Also, 7 is an enemy of 8, and neutral to 6. Therefore it wouldn't be a good choice as a name.
By itself, 34 is a generally fortunate number and is good for individuals and provides material benefit and progress, but gives addiction to women and alcohol. Hence it is an avoidable name number.

However Hindoostan (42) is a fantabulous number; on par with 33. And Hindoostan and Hindustan are pronounced the same way.

Numerology for India

My friend Srinivas Shastri shares my interest in numerology. This is actually a comment I wrote in one of his blogs. It has been cleaned up a little and made to look a little more pretty.
In fact better than Bharat (15) is Bharatavarsh (33), a number signifying abundant wealth and prosperity. The spelling is based on the pronunciation when written in Sanskrit. Even the misspelling/ mispronunciation Bharatvarsh (32) is a number that is friendly to 6 and 8. Currently India (12) is inimical to both 6 and 8. If modified/pronounced as Bharatvarsha it would still be 33.

33 is sattvik while 15 is rajasic, and thus 33 is more suitable given our country's sattvik nature. 15 shows a decline in divinity while 33 provides the grace of the Mother Goddess, Parasakthi. 33 is also considered a number of Lakshmi, who provides us with plenty - dhanam dhaanyam bahu putra laabham (Shree Sooktam). Bharatvarsha, with the grace of mother Parasakthi would be most accurate symbolism of Bharatmata, who is depicted in the form of Goddess Durga seated a lion.
Let us pray that our country is rid of its evils and that all of us can live peacefully and happily.

Compound Numbers

Compound numbers are arrived at by adding the digits that make up the Name. The compound number then "represents" the impact of the name on the individual's life and destiny. The numbers from 1 to 9 are single numbers. The numbers 10 onward are compound numbers. The meanings are obtained/adapted from "Cheiro's Book of Numbers" by Cheiro (Count Louis Hamon).

10 : "The Wheel of Fortune"; 10 is a number of honour, faith, self -confidence and of rise and fall of fortunes (since it is a wheel that turns).

11 : "The Muzzled Lion"; it is a mysterious number in occultism. It warns of hidden dangers, trials, tribulations and treachery from others. The person representing it will have great difficulties to contend with.

12 : "The Hanged Man"; it portends martyrdom and suffering and being sacrificed for the plans of others.

13: "The Reaper"; a skeleton scything down upon a field. It is a number denoting upheaval and change. In occultism, it is considered a favorable number for "He who understands the number 13 will be given power and dominion". If wrongly used, the number will wreak destruction on itself. It is a warning of the unknown.

14: "The Winged Angel"; it is a number of movement and combination of people, revolution, temperance and trials and dangers from natural forces. While it is fortunate for dealings with money, speculation and changes in business, there is a strong element of risk and danger. On the whole, it is not considered a very fortunate number.

15: "The Devil"; "Dweller of the Threshold", a man stuck between virtue and vice. 15 is a number that represents the dark side of magic, and the person represented by it will use every art of magic to suit and carry out their purpose. If associated with strong harmonious numbers it can be very lucky and dynamic, but if associated with a peculiar number like 4 or 8, the person it represents will be very unscrupulous. It confers a beautiful form, voluptuousness, weakness in matters of the flesh but it is the eloquence, arresting personality and strong personal magnetism which is used to gain material advantage - obtaining gifts, favours and money from others. (Shukra Dosha)

16: "The Shattered Citadel" or "The Lightning-struck Tower"; it is depicted by a two men falling headlong to the ground, one of them wearing a crown, as a bolt of lightning strikes the tower. 16 is not a fortunate number - it denotes speedy progress and an equally speedy fall. A shining example of this number is the country JAPAN (16). During WW II Japan made rapid strides in conquering new lands and the Mikado was considered invincible (the rapid rise part). But once the US bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan was humbled and the Emperor's invincible aura vaporized. Therefore, 16 is a number of weakness and subversion, accidents and catastrophes, defeat and danger.

17: "The Star of the Magi"; this is a number that promises fortune provided the person is willing to work hard. In the beginning there will be many failures and disappointments. But perseverance, determination and sheer doggedness will help the person amass fortune. It is a number that promises immortality and the name lives on for its achievements.

18: This is an explosive number where materialism completely destroys the spiritual nature of man. It makes the person selfish and willing to use every trick to achieve their motives. It is a destructive number and causes family feuds, strife, explosions and wars. A notable and even pertinent example is Bombay (17) which became Mumbai (18); one can see for oneself what name changes without proper thinking can do. Another example is Srinagar (18). Bomb blasts are common in both these places and the grace of God is absent.

19: "The Sun"; a very fortunate number promising status and position in life. Just as the Sun increases in its brightness as it moves towards the azimuth, so too these people will have ever-increasing fame as they move towards the pinnacle of success. People born under the influence of 1, 4 or 8 alone can benefit maximally from name number 19. The ancient Egyptians called this number "The Ideal Lover" because it promises fulfilment in l'affaires de coeur.

Prerequisites for name change

Pandit Sethuraman clearly states in "Adhista Vingyanam" that only he who knows palmistry, astrology and face reading (kai rekha sastram, jyotisam, samudrika lakshanam) will be able to grasp the subtleties of numerology. Without the knowledge of these allied sciences, you cannot become a good numerologist.

Secondly, changing the name of a person will alter the karmic field of the person and have a direct bearing on the final karmic destiny of the individual. Fiddling with cosmic energy is fraught with serious consequences and if the numerologist (who suggests the name change) doesn't have Divine Grace (daiva anugraham) then he will be unable to repel the retaliatory karmic wave, leading to unimaginable problems in his own life.

Changing names without reason

Random name changes, altering the spelling by adding additional vowels and/or doing such changes at unfavourable times (as determined astrologically) will result in unwanted and unnecessary events in life. Name change works only if the pronunciation is ALSO altered. Some Bollywood film stars have resorted to changing names, but not all of them have become superstars. Keep this in mind. Consult a "pro" to do this "con".

Chaldean Numerology

Chaldean Numerology is the Numerology advocated by Cheiro and Pandit Sethuraman. It differs from Pythagorean Numerology in that, no letter of the English alphabet has a value of 9.

In Pythagorean Numerology, the value of letters from A to I have values from 1 to 9 respectively. J to R, S to Z restarts with 1 to 9 and 1 to 8.

In Chaldean Numerology, the values of letters are as follows:

1: A, I, J, Q, Y
2: B, K, R
3: C, G, L, S
4: D, M, T
5: E, H, N, X
6: U, V, W
7: O, Z
8: F, P

Names will thus have a numerical value, called the Name Number which has to be in harmony with the Birth Number and the Destiny Number for it to confer maximum benefits.

PANDIT SETHURAMAN = 23 + 36 = 59 (5 + 9 = 14; 1 + 4 = 5)
CHEIRO = 23 (2 + 3 = 5)
B. V. RAMAN = 2 + 6 + 13 = 21 (Famed astrologer from Bangalore)

Pandit Sethuraman

Pandit Sethuraman was born on 31st May, 1925 at Trichnopoly, Madras Presidency.
