True, there are various phenomena related to the human psyche. Singing together has a good therapeutic or social impact as you used to emphasize. Croats are at the fore in this:

Additionally, you were electrified with a taser and viraled by a sexually maturing prince. Generally, the description of this getting up, cold water and inconvenience is understandable - in one of the centers in Poland, men also had similar conditions for some time. And even the water heater had electric breakdowns too. But you were children separated from your parents so I understand you very well about your experiences, trauma and nerves. When I heard about sending children to the Philippines (different bacterial flora, different diet, climate, no language, medical care), a red lamp was lit in response to these "light" suggestions. Thanks to you, Ian, I know I was right.

As for Ekadasi, other sangas follow them with much more orthodoxy.
But as for the planetary cycles and the impact on the Earth, it is generally scientific or by observation to be confirmed. The menstrual cycle related to the lunar cycle, sleep coupled with the rotation of the earth. Simple astrology can be explained by tissue stress - if insemination occurs in January, the fetus experiences the seasons in a different order in a different month of pregnancy. And the planetary systems in general are synchronized. To what extent such phenomena have been reduced and described in a mythological way is another matter. But also in general with other stars - photons reach us, quite a large series can be amplified by a coupled brain.
