The Hindu system of astrology is known as Jyotisha ( Jyotish ), or Vedic knowledge. The name Jyotish or Jyotisha is the Sanskrit name for Vedic astrology that means the inner light. Vedic was the language used in the Vedas, four ancient, sacred scriptures on which the Hindu religion is based.
Jyotish astrology is one of the oldest forms of astrology that is not based on another type but came from independent origins. It uses thoughts that are observational, and intuitive. It can offer answers to one’s love life, career, family, finances, or even offer insight into one’s spiritual life. It has traditionally been passed down from father to son or guru to disciple.
In olden days our great scholars such as saints, sages, rishi’s, Brahmins, guru’s they used to give by Vedas the knowledge of astrology, good wishes living with family and friends.
Nowadays it is tough to find any such kind of Sages, rishi’s, guru’s, to guide us in the above field without keeping in mind of the reward.
Neither they were expecting anything, nor they were demanding for flourishing such kind of education. The saints, sages, Brahmins, guru are the one who is supposed to have superior knowledge; they share their knowledge without expecting anything in return.
The science of Jyotish relates to understanding the unforeseen influences that come to us from the universe. Jyotish considers these impacts a reflection of the past Karma. Jyotish holds that the periods when the results of our past actions, good or bad, come to fruition are indicated by planetary positions at the time of birth. This life has been given to man to sort out the consequences of past Karma deliberately done, in many past lives, as well as in the present life. Man cannot be liberated, until and unless he has sorted out and neutralized all effects of past and ongoing Karma, and bringing the Karmic balance to nil. Jyotish, also holds that it can help one to understand how to optimize his potential by giving one an idea of the trends and periods of life – when to act, how to act and when not to act. Thus, Jyotish claims it can help one to understand his weaknesses, where one may need to put extra attention to attain fullness in his life. The Jyotish further holds that you have to do many good deeds in your current life to get rid of previous karmas, meditation, spiritual practices and propitiation of the planets through special ritual worship (through mantras) and other suggested actions can neutralize the effects of Karma. To reduce the effect of bad karmas done in past or previous life or to get rid of them all together one needs to find a Complete Saint (Satguru / True Guru). A Complete Guru can nullify the effect of all the bad karmas done in the past.
The ancient sages, saints who developed Jyotish possessed deep insight, but they were also very practical. They sought to solve the problem of human suffering by providing tools such as yoga, mantra, meditation and Vedic Astrology, which assist men and women in their quests for health, wealth, happiness and spirituality. The ancient sages, saints described four important aims of life, Dharma, Artha, (material wealth) Kama (desire, pleasure) and Moksha ( spiritual freedom). They designed Jyotish as a tool that helps a person achieve all of these aims so that life, in both spiritual and material aspects, can be a happy event culminating in enlightenment.
Guru is nothing less than the God we worship.
According to spiritualists, spiritual masters about the astrology, the stars you see in the sky are far away, so very far away that they have nothing to do with you. But above all, what is within you has the biggest influence on you.
In astrology, it is believed that the karma of individual dresses a personality with particular affinities when it descends on earth to play out its pending karma. Astrology shows tendencies, past and pending karmas and coloring of a soul. It’s natural predispositions and routes. The parents that you were born to, your country, time of birth, place of birth were already pre-ordained as required in astrology predictions.
Our body is a well-working planetary instrument made of stardust. This planetary dust again becomes a part of earth’s dust upon our death. We take birth at a particular point in time. The entire life is mapped by the blueprint of astrology that displays soul-path and how an individual’s life will play out. And that’s mostly right as far as the laws of the karma concerned. When anyone is facing problem in life due to own faults and finding the right guidance through Jyotish or astrology. With the help of astrology, we can find the right path which is common to everyone and that parents always say to their family member when we are in ignorance of some type but at that time we ignore it. In the end, we go to the best astrologer, who ‘s hard to find but we hope that astrologer’s, palmist will solve all our problems.
It is well-known fact, that in large number of person’s, astrologers, palmist, etc. they make this propaganda that they are having the full and sufficient knowledge of telling the truth about the past, present, and future, to the public or who inclined to know about the future, it is also well-known fact many of them they make propaganda fill their belly and-and they do not have that much knowledge that they claim, but they boast, as if they have much knowledge of astrology, horoscope, etc,
I pray the persons to beware of these individuals. Otherwise, you will be fooled trapped in their hands. I advise you before going to such people ( who make much propagandas ) make sure and inquire about them otherwise you may be trapped in the same boat,
In the dark wilderness of the daily battle of life, only the light of a self-realized sage, saint or Guide, can show you the right path,
For the disciples who have complete faith in their gurus do not worry at all even in ups and downs in business and in most things in life, they do not go here and there for help anywhere for their problems instead they handle the situations in the light of the guidance they received from their masters or gurus, in which they have complete faith and hope.
