All the secrets to life and its purpose are revealed in the Vedas and can be connected to Vedic Astrology.
The Vedas are, even by today’s standards, advanced in philosophy, wisdom and scientific techniques.
One of the most accurate and ancient forms of astrology comes from the Vedas – the oldest body of knowledge and wisdom that we know of to date. Vedic astrology is a spiritual science of self-knowledge.
Below is a quote from one of my teachers Dr. David Frawley – from his book “Astrology of the Seers”
“As great sages have said repeatedly, “Self-knowledge is the basis of all knowledge.” Yet self-knowledge is something far more than psychological analysis. It is not the knowledge of our outer personality or conditioned self but of our inner consciousness and unconditioned being.
Self-knowledge is the knowledge of who we really are, of our true being, which is the light of awareness. It is not found by knowing who we were or why we became this or that; it is found by negating all separative identity and reintegrating the world within our own hearts. This requires seeing all lives within us. Such seeing is a recognition of the Divine presence everywhere.
Astrology properly employed shows us the world within ourselves. It is a tool for moving our consciousness from its physical limitation in the human brain through the rays of creation to encompass the entire universe. It is a tool for meditation in which the planets represent the qualities that we must realize within ourselves.
The planets are the limbs of the cosmic person that we must put back together to return to the original state of grace. Understanding astrology, our consciousness can soar through the planets and the stars to the central Sun of Truth in the inner heart of all.”
By understanding and making use of Vedic astrology, we rise to our highest expression of being. The Vedas offer us wisdom on how to live and care for the body. They should include both Ayurveda and Jyotisha (Vedic Astrology).
“Jyo” is Sanskrit for “light”. Jyotisha is the science of light. It is a language that offers us information that is encoded in light.
Specific to each of us personally is our Vedic birth chart, which gives us the information of our “karmic code”. Our karmic code outlines what karmas or actions we came in this life to fulfill. It is aligned to the planetary cycles and it is a reflection of the micro to the macro at our birth. It also reflects energetic light combinations that form to create various attributes for this lifetime.
Through our chart, we are also able to receive valuable information about our soul and see what karmas we have brought forth into this lifetime that requires our attention to be successful on our path. It’s valuable in navigating life’s ups and downs.
Along with deepening our understanding of our own nature and how we are related to the cosmos Jyotisha is designed to help us reflect deeper and answer the questions: who am I? Why am I here?
Vedic astrology is a tool for self-knowledge and understanding the connection to our celestial and earthly environment.
Having a Joytisha or Vedic astrologer explain your chart can be beneficial to how you construct and create your life.
