Is it possible to avoid being in the wrong place at the wrong time and therefore avoid harm coming to oneself? There have been cases where people have thought themselves to be lucky to have made last minute decisions which have then meant that they have not come to harm. These examples include people being late and missing their plane trip and later finding out that the plane they had booked on crashed. Or persons who have avoided going a certain route when walking only to find out that some life threatening incident took place along their original route.
In all these cases they have avoided a calamity and they have put it down to luck or to a higher force. In Vedic texts there are prescribed the wearing of Yantra’s to prevent calamities occurring to oneself. In essence they seek to prevent the effects of negative planets and enhance the positive planets. So what then happens is that the mind is influenced in subtle ways which thereby prevents harm as the person carries out actions which leads them away from harm. So is there some form of fortune telling taking place? No. Many people may be experiencing the same negative effects of planets to varied degrees but the opportunity to have harm caused is also on a minor to major scale. For one person the negative effect may cause harm in a relationship with another person (which may also get patched up later). For another person it may cause them to act and make decisions which could for example mean they speed on their car and cause an accident and physical harm to themselves. What the Yantra would do is prevent negative influences so that one is more balanced in mind and influenced positively in making decisions and carrying out daily activities.
Yantra’s were widely used by soldiers in ancient India to prevent deadly injuries and to hone the mind to ensure survival. Of course in such times the Yantra makers were genuine skilled craftsmen, with skills passed down from family generations. Sadly in modern times these craftsmen are hard to find and even more difficult is finding those who continue to use the traditional methods.
So yes it is possible to avoid being in the wrong place and the wrong time.
