What is Jyotish?
How Is Jyotish different from Western Astrology?
Jyotish, also called Vedic Astrology, is the astrology of India with its origins in the Vedas, the ancient scriptures of India. The Vedas were cognized by the rishis (great sages) of India and are the repository of all knowledge. Jyotish, which translates as “light”, is the “eye of the Vedas.” It illumines, or brings to light, Vedic knowledge and provides the vehicle by which this supreme wisdom can be applied to the life of each individual and to the world at large. Although ancient, this system of knowledge is as applicable to the affairs of men today as it was thousands of years ago when it was cognized by the rishis of India.
Each person is born at the exact moment when the stars align with their destiny. The natal horoscope is cast for the exact minute and place of your birth. It is uniquely yours. It reveals your past, present and probable future. It is the blueprint of your personal karma indicating
- Your talents and your challenges
- Your mental tendencies
- The probable experiences of your life
- The dynamics of your personal and professional relationships
- Your ability to acquire resources
- Your pleasures and your sorrows
- Your physical, psychological and spiritual characteristics
- Your personal timeline for when indicated experiences will manifest
Jyotish can provide both practical and spiritual insight into every area of your life and can bring clarity and guidance to all situations. It can speak to the most mundane questions of life as well as the most esoteric. Your horoscope is God’s gift to you to enable you to make the most of your life. It is a divine roadmap which allows you to channel your energies toward a more fulfilling and enlightened life.
