Institute of Vedic Astrology Indore Reviews KARMA AND VEDIC ASTROLOGY

Everybody is ecstatic to know about their future but how many of us believe in astrology? It is said that “There is no logic behind your beliefs but it sure makes a difference.” Believing in this concept is almost like people believing in God. For some it is true but for some, it happens to be just a business. Very less of us know that astrology is a most popular system of prediction used extensively and widely all over the world. It is used from ancient times. The person who is expert in practicing it is called an astrologer or astrologist. Astrologers cast the horoscope by understanding the change in the positions of planets & sign of the Zodiac at a particular time and place. It is the study of how the star’s positions and the movements of the planets have the impact on the events and on the lives and behavior of the people.

Institute of Vedic Astrology Indore reviews the 12 houses in a horoscope help the astrologer to predict about various incidents of the life of an individual that has happened or are going to happen.

The reason behind why we can’t see our future is may be because we can’t change it. What have to happen will happen but it is always easier to face it when you have little idea about it and this is how astrology works. Surprisingly, people generally think that if good times are ahead, they can sit idle and they don’t have to do anything. But that is wrong. When an astrologer indicates that there is smooth life ahead, it is not the time to take it easy but one should rather work harder, who knows the cycle may change. So, a wise astrologer advises his client to maintain and increase his momentum even in the good times.

It is not a rocket science. It can be learned and experienced.  The Institute of Vedic Astrology, Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan, New Delhi is the way to learn it. Any change in stars or planet definitely affects our lives because it is related to us. For example, when there is any eclipse it is believed that you should not eat anything. The change in the comets during any eclipse makes our digestion system weaker than our regular system and it is advised not to eat anything at that time. Because of this, some intensive spiritual people choose to avoid eating and believe in the practice of fasting during an eclipse.

Prediction is not a lie but the fact that people not having knowledge about it make it illogical. The more you learn about anything the more you have faith in it.

In Indian culture, the most followed form of astrology is ‘Vedic Astrology’. It refers to Indian or Hindu astrology, a system that originated in ancient India. It is also known as “Jyotish Shastra” – the science of light- the ideology is related with patterns of stars that are thought to determine our destiny. It is a vital part of our Vedic teachings as it portrays Vedic knowledge. They are also termed as Hindu and Indian astrology.

Basic Principle:

The base plot of this category says all things are linked. Our ‘Karma’ is identified by a predetermined cosmic design. We are born at a much defined time and place, specifically when all the conditions related to our birth perfectly matches with environment, like the flowers bloom at certain times when all conditions are perfectly compatible. Same goes with our births on this planet, says the theory of ‘Karma’.

Vedic versus western prediction

The Vedas are the most sacred writings to be known. One can say probably, over 5000 years old. The huge ocean of Vedic knowledge consist both material and spiritual knowledge. It is said that thousand years ago this knowledge had been revealed by the Lord Krishna to the Rishis. It is still available in the original form and slowly the cultures like Babylonian, Chinese, Persian, Greek, also accepted the practice. The main differences between two are following:

 Sno.                            Vedic                   Western
1 It is based upon the actual stars, each having a different story and a different meaning attached to it. It is based on the orientation of Earth to sun.
2 It is based on a very old, ongoing tradition lasting from thousands of years. It is very strong and vigorous technique with inherited knowledge collected many years. It has a much-mixed history. It has existed for only about 130 years since the 19th century and also does not possess the advantage of an ongoing tradition.
3 It is, being a supplement to the Vedas, is thoroughly dipped into Vedic thoughts. This means that the practitioner of the Veda must have lived the life of a Brahmana, to do such practices. In this the practitioner has no training, nor does he know that what it means to follow a spiritual discipline because the technique is not as old as Vedic.

 

Astrology as a language

An astrologer studies the signs, houses, stars, planets and the effects of them and this is how they understand the language of the stars. By studying the charts based upon the planets, signs and houses, an astrologer can gather a lot of information about any individual.

Likewise any other language it also has its grammar in the form of the charts which is further categorized into elements like houses, signs, polarities, nakshatras, etc, but this is a more complicated one as compared to others.

Houses under Jyotish Shastra

The next most important thing to know about is the 12 “Houses” which are called “Bhavas” or the 12 “Zodiac Signs” which are called “Rashis” in Jyotish Shastra, respectively. The concept goes like this:

When the earth rotates at its axis, the Rashi as called as zodiac sign are going to ascend on the sky on the eastern horizon of the earth, which becomes visible in the sky, and descend on the opposite horizon which goes invisible again at a specified location in the earth. For example, when a person is born, or an event has begun, one of those Rashi will be rising on the former.

The horizon which is intersected by the point of sign is called the Ascendant or Lagna, termed as to be the “First house” and the other Rashis to ascend after that is the consecutive 12 houses.
