Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar: Beacon of Hope for Suffering Humanity" by Garda Ghista (AuthorHouse, 2011), p. 1: "Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar was born on May 21st, 1921 in Jamalpur, a small town in the rural part of northern India in the state of Bihar." According to "The Illustrated Weekly of India" Vol. 97, Issue 3 (1976), p. 36: "His official biography released on his 50th birthday by the Anand Marg says he was born at dawn."

His Wikipedia entry gives "6:07 in the morning," citing Ghista's book but Scholfield cannot find this time in the book. Scholfield speculates 5:20am putting the Sun just above the Ascendant.
