in Astrology, Destiny and the Wheel of Time
The body, the agent, the various senses, the different functions of a manifold kind, and the presiding divinity, the fifth of these. Whatever action a man performs by his body, speech, and mind, whether right or wrong, these five are its causes.
- The Bhagavad Gita, Ch 18 v 14, 15
Interpreted in modern terms, say, in the language of management, there are, in the implementation of any plan or project, five components: a plan of action is the first one; a plan manager the second one; instruments of action the third one; the act of implementation the fourth one. But the final outcome of these is either success or failure because it is dependent on the fifth factor which is destiny. Astrology is the only super-science known to mankind which helps man know the trends of results and the role of destiny.
