In this ‘parva‘ of ‘Maha misadventure series’, we will look at Shrimati Saroj Bala ji’s claim for the day of Balarama when he began his ‘Sarasvati Tirthyatra’.
Her claim is that Balarama began this Tirthayatra on 3 October 3139 BCE, and on ‘PUSHYA’ nakshtra.
In effect, she is saying that Balarama left for ‘Sarasvati Tirthayatra’, about 8 days after Krishna left from Upaplavya (per her (already falsified) claim of 25 September 3139 BCE)
Since the previous claim (Krishna leaving from Upaplavya) is falsified, we can easily guess the fate of this Balarama Sarasvati Tirthyatra claim.
All we have to do is check to see if at least a condition of nakshatra ‘PUSHYA’ is satisfied.
We know that it won’t be satisfied. Still for the record, let’s note down the nakshatra(s) per two calendar computations.
(1) Per Julian calendar, on 3 October 3139 BCE, the nakshatra was ‘U. Ashadha’, a nakshatra far away from PUSHYA.
(2) Per Gregorian calendar, on 3 October 3139 BCE, the nakshatra was ‘Mula (or Jyestha)‘, again a nakshtra far way from PUSHYA.
Conclusion: The claim for the timing of Balarama Tirthyatra (beginning of his Tirthyatra) is falsified.
