Vedic Astrology


Vedic Astrology influences over  a very broad spectrum of life in Indian society. It endeavors to correlate the inner spirit of a person with the higher cosmic spirit. In this way, Vedic astrology happened to be a tool of exploring the state of evolution of the spirit. This is the reason that it is regarded as 'an eye of Vedas'. With the passage of time, Vedic astrology has been attuned to physical temporal objectives of life.

During my studies of various facets of Astrology for last 27 years, I have observed that the ancient Indian literature on Astrology needs logical analysis and lucid explanation. While I have deep sense of respect for Indian or Vedic Astrology; I believe it is my privilege to differ on the things where I don’t find enough logical support. The reasons for the short coming were various. Lack of publication and duplicating technology and the intention of the seers to safe guard the knowledge from unworthy persons were the main reasons for the formation of literature in condensed form called Sutras. The seers, for sure created the scripture keeping in view the caliber of their worthy disciples. This attribute of the literature  made it most susceptible to misinterpretation.

With the passage of time, the caliber of average person has degraded to a great extent. Sanskrit has remained no longer a language understood in its depth and gravity. The few who know the language of the scriptures are not pure at heart and intent. Thus, the ancient astrological works are now at the mercy of interpretation of greedy Pandits.

On the one hand there are many who are ignorant about the essence and principles of the subject . On the other hand there are people who know something about the subject. This combination has created opportunities for thriving cheats in the market.

There are many schools of thoughts and equally numerous are the systems and sub-systems of Astrological knowledge. There is not a single authentic and standard syllabus for recognition of its education. As a result of this, there are number of institutes working in their own fashion. They are good enough to hold a few ceremonial  gatherings and conferences on Astrology. Needless to say, they do not serve any other purpose but to artificially inflate the market value of their associates by way of awarding titles and certificates of honour.

There is a genuine and urgent need of a regulating agency to cordinate the activities of such associations and institutes who promote professional Astrologers. 


Those who know Astrology can only indicate in a way what will take place in future. Who else, except the Creator Brahma can say with certainty what will exactly happen?
