The republic of India was formed on Jan. 26, 1960, and while the date is neither favorable nor unfavorable, it does tell us a
lot about the country of India, its people, its history and its future.
The first step in reviewing the Numerology of India is to break down the three units of the modern republic's inception, 1-26-1960, into single digits. The month is a 1, no calculations needed. The day is 26, which reduces to 8 (because 2 + 6 = 8). When we add 1 + 9 + 5 + 0, we arrive at 15, which further reduces to 6 (since 1 + 5 = 6). The date has now been reduced to 1, 8 and 6. These three numbers also add to 15, which finally reduces to 6.
With the 6 as its most important number, the sense of community and the importance of family is this country's foremost priority. The 6 is also known for being a particularly harmonious number. Even in a country as crowded as India, the level of crime is one of the lowest in the world. There are numerous accounts where crowds of hundreds of thousands moving about in complete harmony, without any significant police force in sight.
To find the particular challenges this country faces, look at the "gaps" between the numbers 1, 8 and 6. The difference between 1 and 8 is 7, which shows that spirituality is both a source of pride and an obstacle to its growth. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with India's spiritual essence, which saturates every aspect of life there, it simply means that it keeps India's future on a leash. Of all the organized religions in the world, Hinduism is most focused on peace, wisdom, self-sacrifice in search of enlightenment, the innate logic of reincarnation, and its influence on culture and the arts. And yet, it is also rich in the kind of dogmas and concepts that can cripple a country; India's class system being a prime example of that.
