Surya - Purpose of Birth

Surya is in 12th Bhav.  The 12th Bhav giving up. So  when Surya is in 12th, ego and kingship is given away. So  Gandhi ji never felt like a king.  Surya is in Virgo whose lord is mercury . Mercury is most nonviolent graha and believes ahimsa. He started non violent movement. 12 Bhav  is meditation and surya means Ram . He  gave meditation mantra ” Raghu pati raghav raja ram ” Meditating on Ram. 

12th Bhav has virgo rashi which is a natural sign for disputes and arguments. He created the disputes against foreigners. He used his speech and letters (mercurial trait) to create a disputed environment against Britishers.
