    Introduction to Vedic Astrology


    0 Not allowed!
    The inspiration to open this thread is queries about astrology on some threads which I also tried to reply to the extent of my knowledge. Here I would try to post materials relating to Vedic Astrology with one can easily understand the basic concepts and put them in practice. I have completed the Jyotish Acharya course conducted by the Bharatiya Vidhya Bhawan, New Delhi. I also have done some research work on effect of 6th lords Dasa and planets placed in 6th house’s Dasa in one’s horoscope co relating them with real life experiences of people. I am sure much learned and experienced persons in the field of astrology are around there in this forum and would like to request them to kindly point out mistakes if any found in my postings. There are certain things you may find on contrast to the scientific beliefs of present world. But in deep analysis you will find that to days science is also indebted to our own Astrology for many of its findings. For example Sun according to science is stationary and all other planets revolve around it. In astrology we consider Sun and Moon as Grahas(Planets) and earth is excluded from the list of planets and is considered as stationary. Let us begin …..
    Om Sri Gurubhyo Namaha…
    Everything related to Hindu religion is based upon our Vedas. Astrology is no different and is an integral part of our Veda and as such called as a Vedanga. Veda the sacred scriptures of Hidus embody eternal knowledge. To understand the true essence of Veda one has to possess and practice strict moral and spiritual values and indulge in deep study of the subject. During ancient times this knowledge was spread through Sruti and Smriti only before the writing skills were developed. That’s why this vidhya is practiced in form Slokas as it is always to easy to remember. There are six Vedangas such as i) Shiksha ( understanding Vedic Varnas, Swaras, Mantras and technique to pronounce words properly) ii) Chanda ( maily relates to lyrical delivery of Vedic Suktas) iii) Vyakarana ( as evident deals with grammer) iv) Nirukta ( explanation of difficult words) v) Kalpa (understanding the uses of various Mantras and practice of rituals) vi) Jyotisha : Is the Chakshu or eyes of Veda mainly because it helps to see or visualize the past present and the future and is considered the most important anga of the Veda.
    All of you will agree that our body or for that matter any living things body is made of Pancha Bhoota i.e Agni, Vayu, Jal, Akash and Bhoomi. Celestial bodies consist of enormous energy and could influence almost all terrestrial phenomena with their position in the Sky. That’s why need to calculate the position of every planet at a given time (say birth of a child) at a specific place on earth. In Astrology we try to co-relate and analyze the impact of influence of planets on an event on earth by placing their position in a chart which is called horoscope.

    As we have already discussed, we consider the Earth stationary for the purpose of astrology and consider Sun, Moon and other grahas moves around. That way the area around earth ( or we can say a point we stand on earth) is divided in to 12 parts called RASIs consisting 30 degrees each (since 360 degree makes a circle) They are Mesha,Rishaba,Mithuna,Karkitaka (kataka),Simha,Kanya (kanni) Tula, Vrischika,Dhanu, Makara, Kumbha and Meena. Like Sun rises every morning the area comprising these rasis continuously comes and goes before our view that is what we call rising of each Rasi. So if we consider the 24 hours of a day, let us assume that length of a Rasi remains for 2 hours roughly. Since this month is Simha (Tamil month aavani) (17th Aug to 16th Sep) let us say Sun rises at about 5.50 in the morning in Chennai, it will be Simha rasi at that time. (we will learn about accurate calculations later). like that kanni, tula etc will come one after another. So we have to find out which Rasi was on the rise at the given point of time with the help of Panchanga (Ephemeris). The Rasi on the rise (udayam) at a given point of time (say a child birth or a muhoortha) is called LAGNA or LAGNAM in tamil. So during the month of Simha (Aavani) Simaha Rasi remains as lagna for two hours from sunrise on day one of month of month of Simha then slightly lesser period for day two (method of calculation will be explained later) and so on. After a month next Rasi starts appearing at the time of sun rise like that.

    Dear Mr Subhrama,

    What you have asked is a question for the advanced stage. This thread is just born and will take some time to reach that stage. Let us take the lessons step by step. I will attempt to solve your query through Personal message.
