## 2. Rama and Krushna

* Analysis of the word complete number (purnanka) is as follows:

Table of nine : Complete number
9 x 1 = 9
9 x 2 = 18 (18 according to the numerology means)
1 + 8 = 9
9 x 3 = 27 (27    ,,    ) 2 + 7 = 9
9 x 4 = 36 (36    ,,    ) 3 + 6 = 9

As seen in the table of 9 above or in any multiples of 9 if the digits are added then their sum equals 9. Hence 9 is called a complete number. Since it is complete, it does not change.

** Analysis of the word reducing number (kshayanka) is as follows :

Table of eight : Reducing number
8 x 1 = 8
8 x 2 = 16 (16 according to the numerology means)
1 + 6 = 7
8 x 3 = 24                      (24    ,,    ) 2 + 4 = 6
8 x 4 = 32                      (32    ,,    ) 3 + 2 = 5
8 x 5 = 40                      (40    ,,    ) 4 + 0 = 4
8 x 6 = 48    4 + 8 = 12  (12    ,,    ) 1+ 2 = 3
8 x 7 = 56    5 + 6 = 11  (11    ,,    ) 1+ 1 = 2
8 x 8 = 64    6 + 4 = 10  (10    ,,    ) 1+ 0 = 1
8 x 9 = 72                                        7 + 2 = 9
8 x 10 = 80                                      8 + 0 = 8
8 x 11 = 88   8 + 8 = 16   (16 according to the numerology means)
1+ 6 = 7
8 x 12 = 96   9 + 6 = 15  (15    ,,    ) 1+ 5 = 6

The last number in the table decreases from 9 to 1. Hence the number eight is called a reducing number.

+ Several deities and saints also reincarnate along with an incarnation. When an incarnation completes its mission and renounces its body, within a short period They too follow suit.

1. The Hindu lunar month has two fortnights the first from the first day (pratipada) to the full moon day (pournima) and the second from the first day to the new moon day (amavasya). The everlasting principle from which they originate is referred to as the sixteenth phase (kala)

2. Till the full moon day the moon has 15 favourable phases, the sixteenth being the unfavourable new moon day. Thus there are sixteen phases in which all duality such as black and white, etc. are included. The implied meaning is ‘the one who considers both happiness and unhappiness the same’.

3. 16 phases mean 100% while 12 mean 75%. Till the full moon day, the moon has 15 phases. 15 phases mean complete 100%, 16 mean absolute, just like one says 101%.
