Basically in Indian astrology, there are four elements: fire, earth, air, and water. The master of fire is Mars, while Mercury is of earth, Saturn of air, and Venus of water.
The chakra shows compatibility of a devata’s name with an individual’s chart. The first letter of the devata of a mantra is looked at in the chart in relation to the Janma lagna. If the first akshara (syllable) of the name is situated in trines (1, 5, 9) then the person will get siddhi from the mantra. If the akshara falls into 6, 8, or 12 then the mantra should only be done with the advice of the Guru, for it may have negative effects depending on the devata and the lineage of practice. Other placements can be judged accordingly. The chakra is not used very much in our parampara, but for very particular situations it is used to check the suitability mantras.
This year the approximate budget of this puja pandal is four lakhs rupees and secretary of this puja committee is Amitava Basu. The nearest Metro station from this pandal is Netaji Bhawan and the nearest landmark is State Bank of India, Bhowanipore branch.
