Krishna pingaakshaya hum.
Shri Gurubhyo namah.
We have decided to start the classes in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology
) for all those - who want to learn this wonderful medium to understand life a little better, to be of help to others in their period of darkness and to be able to light a small lamp of hope and aspirations in their heart. This indeed is the aim of Jyotish.
To show the Jyoti (Lamp) of Isha (God) glowing on the path towards ‘THE GOAL OF ALL LIFE’ is the purpose behind this venture.
Let us be clear on one issue. We are also Students like you, could be a bit more advanced that’s all.
A high school student can always teach alphabets to kindergarten children, that doesn’t make him a master. The same is the situation here. Our aim is to make your learning process as simple as possible and because we are all students we can empathize with each other.
The format will be simple. Lessons will be posted once a week/fortnight and then that lesson can be discussed, doubts cleared, misconceptions and misunderstanding erased.
Stress will be on the basics with the question ‘why?’ always leading us. It will be very broad based (which some may feel unessential) and we will try to show the uses of each of the principles for prediction purpose.
We hope that at the end of it all we would have learnt the language required to understand and discuss Jyotish not only amongst ourselves but also in front of any distinguished forum of Jyotish and not be found wanting.
Also to be able to gauge and judge a horoscope correctly and be able to foretell the future trends as well as the past errors of the person who has come to us for guidance and show him a way out of the present predicament and instill hope.
For us personally it will be the satisfaction of having guided a person towards better understanding and learning something more of this game plan called ‘LIFE’ and in the process gain better understanding of the world and ourselves.
Jyotish instills in us discipline and devotion, if we are able to accept them; this requiring effort from our side. There are certain codes to be followed. Some adjustment in our lifestyle for the better will come automatically.
So let us embark on this journey into Jyotish and try to become a representative of Sun on this planet, a Jyotishi.
Jyotish is a Vedanga (Limbs of the Vedas) and amongst the limbs it is the Eyes of the Veda purusha (Vedas personified). This shows its importance in understanding and deciphering the Vedas.
At the feet of the ever merciful and ever forgiving my Lord.
