Here is an example of an AstroCartoGraphy map calculated for His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, born September 1, 1896 at 4 PM (approximate), LMT (local mean time), in Kolkata (Calcutta), India. We have rectified the birth time to 4:10 PM. (See his chart.)

What is stunningly obvious in this map is the position of the Sun line that passes between Boston and New York City. To those who are not familiar with the life of Srila Prabhupada, he arrived in the USA at Boston harbor, with about 40 Rupees in his pocket, the equivalent of $5. He then settled in New York City and from there launched the world-wide Hare Krsna movement.

In his horoscope the Sun is very powerfully situated in Leo his own sign and Mulatrikona sign as well. The 8th house has the positive attribute of giving the capacity to bring about large scale spiritual transformation. The Sun is the Atma-karaka or representative of the soul force, hence this line represents an area where the spiritual forces naturally manifest. It gave him very strong will power to over come all odds and be victorious in his spiritual mission. He quickly became a famous and well known cultural figure in New York.
