In our Vedas, there are plenty of chlokas about astrlogy—i.e. Vedic Astrology
But, Vedadyaayees, or any other experts in Vedas, cannot understand the details
such as various Grahas and how their movements affect the livings
( all creatures — mountains, trees, beasts birds , rivers, including humam beings ), on earth—
Ancient Vedic Astrology, available in Vedas, mainly explains the creation of this Universe,
and its relationship with man born in this Universe several countless times—.
But this is NOT easy to analyse everything without deep knowledge of Metaphysics.
Here ,comes Maharishis of ancient Bharat —
They studied each and every chloka very deeply, and found the waves created
by each Graha and how these waves affect the lives of livings on earth—
They discovered ” cosmic energy” and calculated its effects.
It is differnciated as ”good energy ” and ”negative energy ”.
They thus presented ”Vedic Astrology “‘ to the man–kind .
In this ”Vedic Astrology ”, they gave practical ways to eradicate negative energies of
Grahas in our lives and the way throughwhich to get blessings of good energies.
Vedic Astrology guides us to seek a better life blocking the negative energies
of planets ( Nava grahas )
Parasarar classifies this as predictive astrology and explains
asto how a human being can be got protected from malefic ones.
Vedic chlokas explain as to how the presence of planets ( Navagrahas )
in each house ( in horoscope ) can create particular effects
on the owner of that particular horoscope.
These Navagrahas are prayed and invoked as Semi–Gods
Power of Mars is represented by Sri Nrusimha/ Muruga,
Sun by LordSoorya Narayana & so on.
The Predictive Astrology:
In Vedic Astrology, Moon is a very important Graha
and the Moon sign of a person is considered his or her Rasi
. It is the combined study of the yogas, qualities of the 9 Grahas, their influence on the 12 houses,
and how the qualities or gunas like Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas, and five primordial elements
like space, air, fire, water and earth influence in one’s life.
Modern Vedic Astrology has evolved over the years and at present,
it is popular as a predictive astrology that forecasts about individuals
from their birth-charts based on the time and place of birth.
And here lies the most sensitive point of this field –
what percentage of accuracy in predicting human life can be achieved?
Perhaps 75 percent, at least this is the common belief.
The role of astrologer:
Here is two sections–one according to ”Vagya panchanga” and another
on ”tric ganitha”
Each section boasts their accuracy when telling the predictions of a native.
But it can be vouchsafed only by the native who suffers or get benefits
as per the versions of the astrloger
But, surely an individual can gain knowledge about himself or herself
from Vedic astrology .
An astrloger interacts with the natives , study their birth-chart mainly,
tells about the nature and inclinations of the native.
He makes one aware of the good and the bad influences of Grahas
and such awareness of powers of Grahas helps a native with better abilities
to make correct decisions in his / her life.
The remedies in Vedic astrology:
When Grahas are in debilitated state, or in retrograde
they bring lot of hardship to the native.
There are certain strong afflictions of Grahas
in birth-charts such as Pitru Dosha, Kaal Sarpa Dosha,
Shani Dosha, and Mangalya Dosha, which prevent the native
from enjoying the good effects of Grahas .
Vedic Astrology suggests remedial measures as follows —
1.Chanting of Mantras ( through jabams) ,forwhich an Acharyan well versed
in giving ”upadesams” should tute the seeker in a proper way
This is more or less a direct contact from the affected one with the
Semi–God such as Saturn, soorya etc with full dedication.
( Please read adiyen’s books ”Chinna chinna Vishayangal “‘ )
2. Performing ”poojas” to ”Yanthras” as orderd by an Acharyan–here also
he should be fully conversant with all rituals ( Prayoga order ) .
3. wearing beads garlands (like lotus , Tulsi ) and observing practices
such as fasting on the days when the Grahas are so powerful as per
the version of Astrologer
4. Performing ”homams” strictly according to Sastras forwhich
”Ruthvics”, Acharyan and others participating in the performance
should observe certain code of conducts strictly.
5. Visiting temples and get the poojas performed on a particular day and time
including ”abishegam” , neyvedyam etc —
6. Chanting ”chlokas” in front of the Deity every day for 48 days or so
( Adiyen has written and published a book ”Govindan thunai irukkak Kol yenseyum ?”
i.e. Navagrahas cannot give bad effects when Sri Govindan helps you by your side )
giving details of chlokas, pasurams –one has to recite when the astrologer
predicts some evil effects )
In addition to these, now adays, there are various instructions given
by the astrologer to get rid of evil effects ,whether they are inscribed
in the scriptures or not –( that particular deity only knows )
While summarising all these,
Vedic Astrology is derived from ”Vedas”—-
this predictive astrology gives accurate predictions
from an expert astrologer when the time of birth of a native is also accurate
there are various remedial measures to get rid of evil effects of Navagrahas
and also to get comfort, complete health and abundent wealth
All these—for what—
one has to think deeply—
is it for continous living in this material world ?
is it necessary ?
is it not worth to get rid of this worldly affairs which gives sorrow
Is it not necessary to get solvation of this cycle of birth and death ?
You have to think deeply—
