AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PHILOSOPHY VEDIC ASTROLOGY (JYOTISH)
By Sid Dhiman
WEDNESDAY 1 AUGUST - 7:00PM @ SYDNEY MECHANICS SCHOOL OF ART
In India the full name of Vedic Astrology is 'Jyotish', which means 'light that shines' (candle-flame), and the suffix 'sh' means 'best, wisest'. In full then, 'Jyotish' can be translated as 'the science of light' or 'the wisdom of the heavens' - The Light of Knowledge.
In Vedic literature, the Earth is called 'MRITYUSTHANA' or 'The Place of Death' because everything on Earth eventually dies. But with every death there is a rebirth - there is renewal. In human terms this cycle of life and death and our individual place within it is the most important concept in Vedic Astrology. We fear death because from our prospective life is the only reality, but life is just another experience along the way: understanding this principle is the key to using VEDIC ASTROLOGY with all its insights in your life.
In this talk we will look at the principals of Vedic astrology, how the Planets (The Grahas) work in Vedic Astrology and Vedic tools of prediction. We will discuss a comparison between the western and Vedic tools, examining a chart example in the process.
