    GRAVE DISQUIET IN THE HINDUIST AND BUDDHIST WORLD OVER ASTROLOGICAL PREDICTIONS OF DISASTER EXPECTED TO RESULT FROM THE INAUSPICIOUS CONJUNCTION OF EIGHT PLANETS IN THE HOUSE OF CAPRICORN, FEB 3, LED TO MASS PRAYER MEETINGS SUCH AS THIS ONE, HELD BY HINDU PRIESTS AT RANGOON, BURMA, JAN 28.

    A GLOOMY FORECAST OF IMPENDING CATASTROPHE - NOW PROPAGATED BY HINDU ASTROLOGERS IN INDIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE HINDUISM HAS FOUND A WIDE FOLLOWING - WAS MADE LAST YEAR BY THE BUDDHISTS OF BURMA, WHO MAINTAINED THAT THEIR OWN COUNTRY WOULD BE ONLY SLIGHTLY AFFECTED BY THE FORTHCOMING UPHEAVAL.

    BUDDHISM, A 6TH-CENTURY BC DEVELOPMENT OF THE MORE FORMALISTIC HINDUISM, IS PRACTISED ALSO IN NEPAL, CEYLON AND SOME OTHER PARTS OF SOUTH-EAST ASIA, WHERE A SIMILAR APPEASEMENT OF THE PLANETARY GODS BY PRAYER AND SACRIFICIAL OFFERINGS IS IN PROGRESS.BUDDHIST MONKS FROM TIBET, NOW RESIDENT IN INDIA, ARE JOINING IN THE CONCERTED EFFORTS TO AVERT THE WRATH OF THE OFFENDED DEITIES.
