VEDIC ASTROLOGY AND AYURVEDIC MEDICINE

Vedic astrology is India's traditional system of reading the stars, the planets and the entire movement of time. It was originally called Vedanga jyotish, meaning the study of light Jyoti which is a limb of the Veda (Vedanga). It was also called jyotirveda, the 'light Veda' or 'science of light'. Ayurveda, which means the 'Science of life', is the corresponding Vedic system of natural healing for both body and mind. Both are living branches of an ancient sacred science that arose in an older era in which humanity had a greater intuitive connection with the sacred universe. Unlike corresponding western traditions, their continuity, though shaken by hostile forces, has remained unbroken. These systems are undergoing a renaissance today as we once more learn to look within.

Vedic astrology is an extraordinary predictive and counseling tool. There are many wonderful stories of how Vedic astrologers can pin­point specific events in a person's life with uncanny accuracy. Yet Vedic astrologers are not only good at prediction, they can relate deep wis­dom about a person's life purpose, karma and spiritual path. I myself have visited several Vedic astrologers in India who could relate the main events of my life, my future development, and past and future life implications with extraordinary precision and with notable wisdom. Some Vedic astrologers are thought to be psychics for this reason, though they may be only describing what the Vedic birth chart can reveal to one trained and experienced in astrological insight.

Similarly, Ayurveda is a precise and comprehensive tool for healing physical and psychological well-being, promoting optimal health, energy and vitality. There are many instances of Ayurvedic doctors introducing changes in a person's life, from simple dietary or life-style modifications, to special herbs or internal cleansings that can literally rejuvenate us, curing long standing and intractable health problems of various types. Because of such occurrences, some Ayurvedic doctors are regarded as magical healers, though they may only be employing practices based upon understanding the laws of nature and the movement of the life-force, such as Ayurveda has taught them.

These two Vedic systems and their magic come together in the 'Vedic astrology of healing' or 'Ayurvedic astrology'. Ayurvedic astrology shows us how to optimize both factors of our health and our destiny, our vitality and our karma, so that we can realize our highest potential in life, with our earthly life following the model of heavenly forces and their consciousness-promoting outcomes. Ayurvedic astrology shows how we can heal ourselves through the stars, bringing the energies of the cosmos into our lives so that we can once more touch the universal light.


The Cosmic Person of Light

We live in an ecological age in which we must recognize that the Earth is a single organism, a 'planetary being' endowed with its own life and intelligence. The planet on which we live is not just a material formation but an organic field possessing a self-regulating awareness that we must adapt to if we are to survive as a species.

According to Vedic astrology, each planet has its own being and consciousness. It is a God or Goddess, a cosmic entity worthy of honor, not a mere physical or chemical globe. On this foundation, Vedic astrology is not simply a mechanical or predictive science but an art of interacting with these higher cosmic powers and bringing their beneficial forces into our more limited world.

The entire universe forms a greater organism or universal being which encompasses all the worlds. This is the Purusha or Cosmic Per­son of Vedic thought, who is said to be made of light and to dwell in the Sun and the stars In addition to all the individual living creatures, there are greater cosmic beings and powers ruling over the different layers of existence from subatomic to supra galactic realms, and all of these beings are integral aspects of the Purusha, the higher Universal Being. The planets of our solar system are the main cosmic beings or powers that govern our life and expression on Earth.


Life and the Stars

All life on Earth derives from the stars, primarily through the light of the Sun. Biological life arises from the sunlight digested by plants through the process of photosynthesis, which creates the food that sustains all creatures. However, the lights of the planets also consist of reflected sunlight. One could say that the planets, like plants, are light receptacles designed to transmit light in various ways.

The effects of sunlight and moonlight on organic life are well known relative to the life-cycles and reproductive habits of plants and animals. That the light of the other planets may affect life on Earth may seem less likely, given how dim their light appears to our earthly vi­sion, but considering the extent of their electro-magnetic fields, and the fact that the entire solar system is a single organism, we must recognize this probability as well. In addition, we must consider that the light of the stars and their electro-magnetic fields also influences life in our solar system. The web of life is a web of light interconnected to the stars and planets.

All entities in the universe are involved in the creation of light in one form or another, whether it is the light produced by the stars or that developed internally by living creatures as part of their metabolisms. We are all plants, planets or light production mechanisms.

Not only is life a transformation of light, but so is the mind whose function is to illumine and perceive through an internal light. This light is ultimately One and universal. It is not simply a physical force but a power of consciousness, which is the highest and most subtle form of light. The connection between physics, biology and spirituality, which is the basis of Vedic astrology, is not an over extension of the imagination but a natural progression that parallels the unfoldment of the universe. It explains how the mind of God works building up the worlds in various layers and textures of light, animate and inanimate.

One of the key laws for understanding this greater 'conscious universe' is that what happens on one level of existence is reflected on all other levels. Several important dictumsarise from this like as above, so below, and as without, so within. The Cosmic Being upholds within itself various interdependent dimensions or planes of existence  material, biological and spiritual


Vedic Science

 

Vedic astrology or Jyotish is the foremost of the six Vedangas or 'limbs of the Veda'. It is said to be the 'eye of the Veda' left eye of Horusright eye of horusthrough which all Vedic knowledge can be properly applied. Ayurveda is the foremost of the four Upavedas or 'secondary Vedas' through which a true Vedic life can be properly lived. Ayurveda and Vedic astrology are closely intertwined not only with each other but with all other Vedic sciences, including the great wisdom traditions of Yoga and Vedanta and their profound paths of Self-realization and God-realization.

The Vedas themselves are ancient mantric texts of great profun­dity and mystery, deriving from the meditative insights of the great Himalayan seers or rishis 777over five thousand years ago. The Rig Veda, the most fundamental of the four Vedas, is perhaps the oldest book in the world, looking back to the dawn of history. It carries the collected wisdom of our ancient spiritual ancestors, connecting us to previous humanities and so-called lost civilizations before what we call history began.

The Vedas derive from a yogic approach to reality. They were said to have been directly perceived from the Cosmic Mind in the state of Samadhi //or inner unity between the seer and the seenleft eye of Horuskoimagnetic matrix compassright eye of horus. This affords them an insight and an authority that goes beyond our ordinary knowledge sources born of the mere brain, senses and human mind

The central message of the Vedas is that the universe dwells within our own consciousness, which extends beyond all time and space. We are the entire universe, which is the expression of our own deeper Self -The Vedic mantra, which is the basis of all Vedic texts, is a special code of vibratory or sound-based knowledge, inherent in cosmic space. It contains the keys to cosmic law or dharma /☸ Wheel of Dharma/, the underlying truth principles that sustain the cosmic order. These dharmas are not just physical laws but ethical and spiritual principles, the most notable of which is the law of karmacp. Through these Vedic mantras we can understand our individual dharma, our social dharma and, ultimately, all the dharmas42 in the universeuniverse

Vedic knowledge is perhaps the ultimate science because it can unlock all the secrets of nature, bridging the internal to the external, and unraveling the parallel processes of cosmogenesis and the devel­opment of individual life. Vedic mantras show how the forces of nature from the elements to the stars work within us as physical and psychological forces. Through this special insight taught by the Vedas, we can reintegrate ourselves into the conscious universe, realizing our existence as a single organic being of love, light and bliss.


The Dharma Law Keys

 

In Buddhism dharma means cosmic law and order, but is also applied to the teachings of the Buddha. In Buddhist philosophy,dhamma/dharmais also the term for "phenomena".Dharma refers not only to the sayings of the Buddha, but also to the later traditions of interpretation and addition that the various schools of Buddhism have developed to help explain and to expand upon the Buddha's teachings. For others still, they see the Dharma as referring to the "truth," or the ultimate reality of "the way that things really are"

One of the central tenets of Buddhism, is the denial of a separate permanent "I" , and is outlined in the three marks of existence.

  1. Dukkha – Suffering or unsatisfactoriness (Pali: Dukkha)
  2. Anitya – Change/Impermanence (Pali: Anicca)
  3. Anatman – Not-Self (Pali: Annatta)

For Sikhs, the word Dharm means the "path of righteousness". What is the "righteous path"? That is the question that the Sikh scriptures attempt to answer.The Gurus are considered "the divine light" and they conveyed Gurbani (the word of God) in the form of the Guru Granth Sahib to the world. The Guru Granth Sahib of the Sikhs rejects the Hindu systems of Dharma and Karma. In this faith, God is described as both Nirgun (transcendent) and Sargun (immanent). Further, God pervades in His creation and is omnipresent, but cannot be incarnate.The primary object of a Sikh's life is to seek union with God and hence, liberation from the cycle of births and deaths (cycle of re-incarnation) which is dictated by a person's thought, deeds and actions in this life. Liberation can be achieved through meditating on God, truthful living and sharing ones wealth in the context of a normal family life and through divine grace. All Sikhs, on taking , are enjoined to lead a disciplined life by following a code of ethics leading to a "Saint-Soldier" way of life


A Vedic Parable

One of the greatest Vedic sages was Atharva, after whom the Atharva Veda, one of the 4 main Vedic texts, was named. In the older Rig Veda, to which this story goes back, he was already a legendary figure. Atharva had a son named Dadhyak, who is the central figure in the story that follows.

Dadhyak by his profound austerities had received the highest knowledge of immortality, called the 'knowledge of honey' (Madhu Vidya) because it carried the supreme bliss. Dadhyak gained this knowl­edge as a special gift from Indra, the greatest of the Vedic Gods, and like his Greek counterpart Zeus, the lord of heaven who wielded an irresistible lightning bolt against his enemies. Naturally this precious wisdom had to be protected. Indra forbade Dadhyak from teaching it, even to the other Gods. Indra placed a special curse on Dadhyak, saying that if Dadhyak tried to teach it, Indra would come and immediately cut his head off.

Ofcorse, all the Gods wanted to learn this knowledge, which would fulfill their greatest wishes. Among these many Gods, the most curious and precocious were the Ashwins, the twin youths or horse­ men, who were also the doctors or physicians of the Gods.The Ashwins already possessed all other magical powers except this special teaching, without which all their healing powers would be defective. So their desire to gain it was immense and they would use all the skill and cunning necessary to acquire it.

The Ashvins approached the sage Dadhyak and requested that he teach them this secret knowledge. Dadhyak predictably replied, "I cannot teach you or Lord Indra, before whom even you must bow, will cut my head off."

The Ashvins, not being put off even by the fear of Indra replied, "That is no problem. We can receive the knowledge and you can protect your head as well. First with our magic powers we will give you the head of a horsehorse head. Then you can safely teach us through the horse's mouth. When Indra comes and cuts off your head, which has become that of a horse, we will replace it with your original human head."

And that is exactly what they did. The Ashvins, who themselves had horse's heads, gave Dadhyak the head of a horse. He taught them the secret knowledge through it. Indra then came and cut off the horse's head and the Ashwins gave Dadhyak back his original human head. This story has many deep meanings. In terms of Vedic astrology, the horse's headhorse head became the constellation Ashvini that marks the beginning of the zodiac in the sign . The horse's head is also the Sun, which is exalted in , a sign that represents the head. The twin Ashwins represent both the duality behind time with its alterations of days and nights, and the state of balance through which we can go beyond time. The horse's head horse headis a key to the deeper meaning of Vedic astrology, the knowledge of which the Ashwins are the teach fromHobby Horse of Death-Binki

Relative to Ayurveda or Vedic medicine, the horse is a symbol of Prana, the life energy that derives from the Sun and which is the source of all healing powers. The Ashwins as the great doctors of the Gods were famous for their powers of rejuvenation and were even capable of resurrecting the dead. As twins they represent the ability to balance our energies and create wholeness, and were important early teachers of Ayurveda.

Relative to the practice of Yoga, the horse's head is a symbol of the soul that sacrifices its bodily identity to unite with the higher Self. The horse's head is the soul that transcends /also transcendental number   & e /the limitations of time and space and becomes freemoulded soul to travel at will through the entire universe, like the Sun, as a being of light. More specifically, the cut off headhorse head is the opened  through which the honey bliss or Soma flows. The Madhu Vidya or honey knowledge is that of the su preme Bliss of the Self. It is an important Vedantic teaching's tarting with the oldest Upanishads.

To discover our true nature we must first offer up our false nature, our ego and all of its attachments. To speak the higher truth we must sacrifice our personal opinions and preconceptions. To gain our head, we must first lose it. The Ashwins represent this transformation from duality to unity. The higher knowledge is paradoxical, transcending our ordinary sensory means of cognizance and connecting all forms of knowledge together in the light of consciousness.


The Sun and Prana

Behind all light sources in the universe is the supreme light of consciousness, the Light of lights or inner Sun, which is the original form or face of Godmoulded soul. This spiritual Sun exists within our own minds and hearts as the power of illumination at the core of our being, our own true inner Self. Returning to it is the ultimate goal of life.

The Vedic mantras are said to arise from the breath  of the Godhead (Brahman) or the universal Prana. The power of these mantras re, sides in the rays of the Sun and through them function as doorways to the stars. Through Vedic practices one can gain an energetic access to the worlds of our  and , or the worlds of the Nakshatras, the stars beyond our Sun, extendingarise to the timeless realms beyond all cre­ation to the ultimate realm of unchangeable lightsource

The Vedas tell us that the inner Sun is Prana and that the move­ments (the inner Sun or our life-force are measured or metered by the movements of the outer Sun. This unity of the Sun, the power of time, and Prana, the force of life, reflects the unity of the external universe or macrocosm and the internal universe or microcosm.

This correspondence of time (Kala) measured by the starsplanviolindand life (Prana) measured by the breath is an important concept in both Vedic astrol­ogy and Ayurvedic medicine and the basis of their connection. Through it, Vedic astrology and Ayurveda mirror each other as external and internal images of light and life. These factors figure importantly in Yoga practice as well, especially in the science of Svara Yoga, though which we judge the influences of the planets based upon our breath alone.


Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology

Ayurveda is called "the mother of all healing" because it embraces all forms of healing including diet, herbs, bodywork, surgery , psychology and Yoga. It accepts anything internally or externally that promotes health, well-being and happiness. Ayurveda explores the qualities and effects not only of foods, medicines and behavior but also of climates, the weather and the stars (astrology).

Ayurveda provides an integral mind-body system of both diagnosis and treatment. First it shows us our individual constitution according to the three doshas or biological humors of  (air),  (fire) and  (water), as well as how this constitution is affected by everything from genetics to environment and emotions. Then it outlines various treatment measures to enable us to achieve optimal health and vitality. These treatments range from simple dietary measures to complex herbs and special purification procedures. Ayurveda aims not only at the cure and prevention of disease but also at rejuvenation and longevity. Beyond ordinary health care measures it has special methods to allow us to achieve a higher level of vitality and awareness a spiritual Ayurveda that is part of the practice of Yoga.

Possessing a similar scope to Ayurveda, Vedic astrology contains all aspects of astrology, including the reading of birth charts (natal astrology), mundane astrology (the effects of astrological influences on society), astrological timing and forecasting (muhurta), and answering questions (prashna). In addition to these usual astrological considerations, Vedic astrology encompasses all forms of divination, including palmistry and numerology, of which several Vedic forms exist. It also includes astronomy and meteorology, which reflect karmic as well as physical forces.
In the form of natal astrology or the reading of birth charts, the Vedic system helps us understand our personal lives in all areas, including health, wealth, relationship, career and spirituality. Like Ayurveda, it has a broad range of treatment measures including the use of colors, gems, mantras and the worship of deities to aid in our greater well-being and life unfoldment. These are called jyotish-Chikitsa; the therapies of light or astrology.


 

AYURVEDIC ASTROLOGY

Yet, though they have their specializations in many areas, both Vedic astrology and Ayurveda have a significant overlap as well. Vedic astrology contains a medical system based upon Ayurveda, while Ayurveda contains a system for the timing of disease and its treat­ment based upon Vedic astrology. We can designate this combined usage of Ayurveda and Vedic astrology more simply as Ayurvedic Astrology'.

Ayurvedic astrology is the medical branch of Vedic astrology, add­ing to it the Ayurvedic view of health and healing. It uses the language of Ayurveda to understand the effects of the planets on the body and mind relative to health, disease and longevity. Ayurvedic astrology also uses Vedic astrology as an aid to Ayurvedic analysis, diagnosis and treatment, showing how planetary factors cause disease and how balancing planetary factors can be an important aid in any cure.
Ayurvedic astrology combines these two great disciplines, using Vedic astrology to plot the influences of time and karma and Ayurveda to show how these relate to our state of Prana or vital energy. Combining these two great disciplines together, there is nothing that we cannot treat or cannot understand.

Vedic astrology considers that the determination of physical and mental health is the foundation of all astrological analysis. Whatever other indications may occur in a chart -whether for career, wealth, relationship or spirituality-these cannot bear fruit if a person has significant physical or mental impairments. Traditionally, the ascertainment of longevity was the first factor to be examined by a good as­trologer. This was not a simple matter of determining how long a per­son was likely to live, but part of a general determination of the vitality of a person, showing the energy available to activate the opportunities afforded them by the chart. In this regard, medical or Ayurvedic astrology is usually the first step of all astrological examination.

However, Ayurvedic astrology is not simply a physically-based medical astrology. It reflects the psychological and spiritual dimensions of Ayurveda as well. It is concerned with all levels of our well-being, which depend entirely upon our connection to the Soul, the real per­son or Atman within. In this regard, Ayurvedic astrology is concerned with healing body, mind and spirit, using the tools of the entire universe, the foremost of which is the light of the stars and planets. It expands the field of Ayurveda to its broadest possible range.


ASTROLOGY ,AYURVEDA AND YOGA

Both Vedic astrology and Ayurvedic medicine are part of the greater system of Yoga, a system which aims at Self-realization,our union with the Divine Being within us as the ultimate goal of life. For this reason we can call Ayurveda 'yogic medicine' and Vedic as­trology 'yogic astrology'. Ayurveda is concerned with our connection to the Divine Self as the source of all life within us, and Jyotish (Vedic astrology) with our union with the Divine Self as the source of all light and therefore all activity and manifestation in the external world.

In this post we will examine how these three systems -Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic astrology -interrelate to provide us with an effective and comprehensive methodology to deal with our karma in life, which is manifold on many levels, without and within. All Vedic disciplines aim at helping us understand, adjust to and, to the extent that it is possible, transform our karma.
Medical astrology has always been one of the most popular aspects of astrology. Among the first questions people ask astrologers are "How long willl live?" or "How healthy will I be?" Even wealth and fame are no guarantee of long life or freedom from disease. We are all concerned about our health and vitality, which is the foundation of everything else that we attempt in life.

Medical astrology also has a great scope for practical application and everyday usage as our health and energy fluctuate with the rhythms of time, from days, months, years and stages of life to special astrological periods like the dasha systems of Vedic astrology. Medical astrology provides a good angle from which to learn astrology and to verify its complex workings.

If we add the psychological component to medical astrology, it be­comes a yet more interesting and valuable study. We are all curious about how our psyche has developed both in this life and in previous lives, and how it is likely to evolve and change in the future. An im­portant question people routinely come to astrologers with is "Will I be happy?," as our psychological state is often more important for us than our physical condition.


Our Three Bodies

As human beings, we are not mere lumps of flesh, but a composite of three bodies or en casements for the soul – the physical, the astral and the causal. The physical body is the sphere of the gross elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether, the visible body born of our parents and sustained by the food that we eat. This is the body that we all know and experience in our outer life on Earth and in the waking state of consciousness.

Within this gross organism resides a more refined vesture that works behind our physical functioning-the astral or subtle body made up of the vital force, the senses, and the outer aspect of the mind.

It is composed of the subtle elements or sensory potentials of

  • sound (ether)
  • touch (air)vortex spirall ball
  • sight (fire)flame
  • taste (water)aqua flow break
  • smell (earth)earth break ball

Normally we experience the astral body indirectly through the physical body by means of the mind and emotions. But in dreams, visions and inspira­tion or after death we can experience it directly.

The causal body is the deeper mind or sphere of the soul that holds the inmost desires, impulses and tendencies (samskaras) that propel us along the cycle of rebirth. It is comprised of the gunas (qualities of nature) of sattva (harmony), rajas (agitation) or tamas (inertia). On a higher level, the causal body is the abode of our life wisdom, heart feelings and soul urges that continue with us from birth to birth.

Normally we are not directly aware of the causal body except when we are in contact with our deepest aspirations. We touch in with it in the state of deep sleep and only enter into it directly when we enter into a state of super consciousness beyond the ordinary mind and ego. Awakening it is one of the main purposes of Yoga. The causal body  is the vehicle of the soul or reincarnating entity and persists throughout all our incarnations, with the astral body arising out of it.

Adding a spiritual or yogic side to medical and psychological astrology, we can create a complete system of well-being for body, mind and spirit. This can help us answer the ultimate questions like "What is the meaning of life?" or "Who am I?" or "What in us, if anything, survives death?" Answering such questions, after all, is the real purpose of why we are born.


AYURVEDA AND THE THREE BODIES

Ayurveda has as its primary concern the right functioning of the physi­cal body, showing how to correct the various imbalances that can arise within it. However, as the physical body is energized by the vital force and connected to the mind and to the soul, which is the ultimate source of life, Ayurveda considers impacts of the astral and causal bodies as well.

In general, we could say that the physical body relates more to , the biological wateraqua flow break humor of Ayurveda, because it is composed mainly of this element. The astral body relates more to Pitta, the biological fire humor, owing to its connection with our perceptual faculties. The causal body relates more to , the biological airvortex spirall ball humor, owing to its power to energize the other two bodies with life and consciousness.

The astral body is the subtle form or model, the life imprint, out of which the physical body arises. By changing its internal energies we can alter our outer physical functioning as well. Such 'working on the subtle body' is the basis of pranic or energetic healing that Ayurveda also employs.
The causal body holds the underlying will and motivation in our hearts. By changing our deepest thoughts and intentions we can alter both our physical body and its vital energies. This is the basis of spiritual healing in Ayurveda, which targets the causal body

VEDIC ASTROLOGY AND THE THREE BODIES

Vedic astrology similarly considers the role of all three bodies. It starts out with an examination of our physical health concerns, but then extends to all the main factors of our well-being-career, relationship, creativity and spirituality -bringing in the roles of the astral and causal bodies as well. Each of these different concerns is denoted by specific houses in the birth chart. These houses along with their planetary significators are examined with precise rules of delineation and interpretation for determining their results.

Our overall birth chart relates primarily to the subtle or astral body, which is the greater sphere of our life energies. It reflects the entire range of our activities, of which our physical health is just one factor. The birth chart is like the blueprint of the astral body, which forms the matrix or energy pattern for the physical. Astrology, as its name suggests, is primarily an astral science, having as its main concern the subtle or astral body, our body of the stars. As the astral body mediates be· tween the physical and the causal, it can help us understand the other two bodies as well.

• Astrologically speaking, the physical body is indicated primarily by the or rising sign and its ruler, and the nature of the influences upon them. It is also connected to the planet , the planet of work in the material world.
• The astral body, which indicates our emotional or feeling nature is reflected primarily by the  – its position and influences in the chart, its sign and Nakshatra (lunar constellation). It also reflected in the 4 house, the house of the mind and its planetary ruler.
• The causal body or soul works mainly through the , which indicates character, will and individuality. For the causal body, we look to the Sun''s placement in the chart, as well as the fifth and 9 houses, the houses of dharma, and the Navamsha or 9th divisional chart.
• The , and are each closely examined in Vedic astrology to help us understand how our three bodies are functioning in this life. When all three are harmoniously placed, our lives are likely to unfold in the best possible manner on all levels.


YOGA AND THE THREE BODIES

Yoga in the Vedic system is ·a science of meditation aimed at Self­ realization or union with the Divine as its ultimate goal. Yoga or spiritual practice of any genuine type is the main concern of the soul or the  causal bodythe immortal part of our nature, whose intentions go beyond physical or psychological well-being to our eternal welfare.

Yoga begins with the balancing and clearing of the physical body through various asanas or yoga postures in order to provide the foun dation of health necessary to support its deeper practices. In this regard Yoga interfaces with Ayurveda and its healing approaches.

On this physical foundation, Yoga uses pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (control of the senses), and dharana (concentration of the mind) for working on the subtle or astral body. Through devel oping more prana and through focusing the mind as in the practice of mantra, Yoga can help us change the energy pattern of the subtle body. Such yogic approaches are important remedial measures in Vedic as­trology because they help to bring harmonious planetary energies into our minds.

Dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (absorption) are the main yogic tools for developing the causal body and are the most important aspects of traditional Yoga. Yoga leads us from the physical to the subtle and then to the causal in order to discover our true Self and the higher Being behind all three bodies. In this regard the ultimate concern of Yoga is to take us to a condition of consciousness beyond all three bodies.

INTEGRAL USE OF AYURVEDA, VEDIC ASTROLOGY AND YOGA

Through using all three disciplines together -Ayurveda, Vedic astrology and Yoga -we gain access to all the main tools and techniques for working with the physical, astral and causal bodies, thereby addressing all aspects of our being. Ayurveda provides the foundation of right living through the proper care of the physical body. Vedic astrology shows how to optimize our karmic potentials, which are the main concerns of the subtle body, through a proper understanding of our birth chart and its planetary influences. Yoga shows us how to awaken to our soul or causal potential and develop it scientifically through the use of various Yoga techniques.

Ayurveda provides the basis for a harmonious life in the material world. Astrology provides a good map of the territory to be covered in our life activities in order to achieve our goals. Yoga shows us a way to realize the supreme g al that each successive birth is leading us to­ wards.

For an effective treatment of our entire being, we must consider not just the physical body but also the astral and the causal bodies. This is the importance of applying Ayurveda, Vedic astrology and Yoga together. In fact, we must consider all three bodies regarding the achievement of any important goal of life, which all rest on proper vitality (supported by Ayurveda), right karmic actions (supported by Astrology) and spiritual intent (supported by Yoga). Even for the practice of Yoga, which is meant to take us beyond time and space, we must first consider where we come from in terms of time (astrology) and space (the body or Ayurveda). If we pursue our spiritual practices without a proper Ayurvedic life-style, we may create physical or psychological imbalances that eventually block our inner journey. If we pursue them without understanding our birth chart through Vedic astrology, the timing or manner of our practices may not be appropriate or effective.

ASTROLOGY AND HEALING

Through its ability to help us understand our physical constitution or body type, Vedic astrology shows our overall disease propensity, indi­cating the types of health problems that we are most likely to be vul­nerable to. In addition to this, it can indicate the timing of disease, so that we can know when we are likely to get sick and can guard our­ selves against it. Once we have come down with a disease, Vedic astrology can be an important aid in its prognosis, showing our ability to get well, so that we can know how easily we are likely to recover.

Vedic astrology is not only helpful for ordinary disease conditions; it has a special relevance for helping us understand conditions, both physical and psychological, which may not be curable by the usual medical methods. It provides us a precise methodology for dealing with diseases that derive from internal and karmic causes, whose roots reside not so much in the physical body but in our mental state or the condition of our will, the factors of the astral and causal bodies.

Vedic astrology is not only concerned with the diagnosis and timing of diseases, it also offers us various methods to either treat disease or increase our resistance to it. The treatment methods or remedial measures of Vedic astrology primarily aim at the astral body. Diseases reflect negative planetary influences, which are disruptive forces in our astral environment. Gems, mantras (words of power), yantras (power diagrams), special rituals (pujas and yajnas) and other yogic methods can help counter these influences and replace them with those that are positive.

Such subtle methods are particularly effective for dealing with mental and psychological disorders, which are primarily imbalances in the subtle body. They help strengthen the aura and immune system, and can remove negative karmic influences, negative thoughts and subtle environmental pollutants, like low level radiation.

The planets project the basic energies operating in the solar system. As such, our entire lives can be arranged to improve our plan­etary influences. The right diet, the right herbs, the right location to live, the right livelihood, right relationships, and the right Spiritual practices can all be used to balance planetary forces; For example, Mars is a hot planet and can cause fiery or Pitta dis­orders like fever, inflammation, infection, as well as traumas and injury if afflicted in the chart. Its influence can be countered by cooling foods, cooling herbs, a cool climate, and cool colors, as well as by special gems and mantras for the planet, adjusted according to the planetary periods and transits operative in the individual chart.

However, treating the physical body is more complex than what may be revealed in the birth chart and should not be attempted through astrology alone. Medical astrology should support but not substitute for a full medical treatment. But astrology can be helpful for medical problems, even if we cannot see the full scope of a person's condition in the chart. It can show us the probable development of a disease, even when its specific nature and symptoms may not be clear. It can tell us when we are likely to fall ill and for how long, even when it cannot pin point the exact illness or its treatment. In the hands of a good astrologer, however, it can tell us these additional factors as well.


Vedic Astrology and Our Karmic Code

The soul can be defined as our 'karmic being' as opposed to our merely human personality, which is its mask. It carries our karmic propensities called samskaras from one body to another. Our karma, we could say, is the DNAkukulkaninf of our soul. Just as the body has its particular genetic code, the soul has its particular 'karmic code'.

The soul's karmic code is based upon the life patterns it has created – the habits, tendencies, influences and desires it has set /⊎ Multiset union/in motion over its many births/∅Empty set/. These karmic tendencies or samskaras ripen like seeds in the soil of our lives, taking root and sprouting according to favorable circumstances. Our soul's energy is filtered through our karmic potentials, which create the pattern of our lives down to subconscious and instinctual levels.

For the evolution of our species as well as for our own spiritual growth,we must consider both the genetic and karmic codes. We cannot understand ourselves through genetics alone, which is only the code of the body; we must also consider the karmic code, the code of the mind and heart. Note how two children in the same family can share the same genetic pattern, education and environment and yet have very different lives, characters and spiritual interests. This is because of their differing karmic codes.

Fortunately, there is a way that we can discover our karmic code as clearly as our genetic codediamond cut-which is through Vedic astrology. The Vedic astrological birth chart is probably the best indicator we can have of the karmic code of the soul. The pattern of the birth chart is like the 'DNA of the soul' behind the current physical incarnation. The positions of the planets in the birth chart provide a wealth of knowledge through which we can read our karmic code in great detail. In this regard, the Vedic astrological chart is probably the most important document that we have in life and is much more important than our genetic code. Yet like our DNA kukulkaninfit is a code written in the language of nature that needs to be deciphered by a trained researcher in order to make sense of its indications.

In addition to showing our karmic code at birth, Vedic astrology can plot its unfoldment through the changing course of our lives. Vedic astrology has elaborate methods of timing through its system of planetary periods (dashas), annual charts (bhuktis) and transits (gochara). That is why Vedic astrologers can be so amazingly accurate both in their delineations of character and in determining the outer events of our lives.

Through the astrological remedial measures of planetary gems, mantras, yantras and meditation on planetary deities, Vedic astrology also provides us with methods to optimize our karma and take us beyond the limitations of our karmic code. This is an equally important component, the therapeutic aspect of the Vedic astrology or what we can call ayurvedic astrology'.

Therapeutically it is imperative for individual growth that each one of us not only becomes aware of our karmic code but also learns the means to improve it. The Vedic system provides us with some of the finest tools in this regard, through its many and varied disciplines including the sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology.

This does not mean that a proper examination of our birth chart will answer all our questions in life; we will still have to act. The chart however, will show us how to act in the best and wisest possible manner. In this regard, the birth chart is our karmic guide to life, and the tools of Vedic science are probably the most important tools of karmic improvement.

To change ourselves it is not enough to alter our genetic code; we must alter our karmic code as well. However, to change our karmic code is no easier a matter than altering our genetics! It requires a great deal of motivation, concentration and expertise -and the efforts must be done completely within ourselves rather than in an external laboratory. Changing our karma codes requires that we dynamically change the way we live, breathe, see and think, altering our very ego or sense of self.


The Science of Karma

Our soul is a 'karmic being', a doer or actor in a universe shaped by its own actions. Astrology as a science of time is also a science of karma. Time is not merely a blank continuum, but reflects a karmic flow, a giving of the fruit of action to all beings. In this regard astrology is the most important of all sciences because through comprehending time and karma, it can unlock the energy and motivation behind everything that occurs in the universe. There is nothing in our birth chart that does not have karmic implications on one level of our life or nature or another.

All true healing must occur first of all at a karmic level. It must be capable of removing the negative effect of our actions and promoting those which are positive. As karma and time are interrelated not only with each other but with the entire universe, all true healing should consider astrology as well.

A good astrologer can perhaps be best defined as a 'karmic coun­selor', guiding clients on how to better optimize their karmic potential in life and helping them to understand their unique karmic code and how to best implement it. In the same way, a good healer is also a 'karmic healer'. This healer helps clients remove the karmic causes,including the wrong attitudes and inappropriate life-styles behind their diseases, not simply just alleviate their symptoms.

Both Ayurveda and Vedic astrology are important means of karmic rectification. Ayurveda helps us rectify our karma relative to our physi­cal and mental habits and the impulses that may be out of harmony with our mind-body type. Vedic astrology helps us rectify our karma relative to the deeper samskaras that may be out of harmony with our planetary type and our soul's level of manifestation. They both lead us to Yoga, which can help us go beyond all the influences of karma. We should not forget this karmic orientation as we examine the scope of Ayurvedic astrology. 

Doshas and Planets: Prame factors of Ayurveda & Astrology

Ayurveda and Vedic astrology share an energetic view of the universe, recognizing certain harmonic keys to our existence on all levels. They hold that the order of life on Earth and the struc­ture of the universe, specifically the solar system, are intrinsically re­lated and follow the same laws and development of forces.

In this post, we will examine the prime factors of the biological humors or doshas of Ayurveda and the planets or grahas of Vedic astrology and show how they are related. This information will provide us the basic language through which we can examine the two systems and their interrelationship in more detail.


Doshas and Planets

Vedic astrology uses the seven classical planets visible to the naked eye which is kind of hard to imagine for planets like Jupiter and Saturn even Mars in ancient times so is made up fairy story style= 777

 
 
         

To these it adds the two lunar nodes, the north node or Dragon's head called Rahu, and the south node or Dragon's tail called Ketu. These points in the Moon's ecliptical orbit at which eclipses occur are very important in the Vedic system. Some Vedic astrologers also use ♅  and, but few afford them the importance of the other planets.

The term for planet is Vedic astrology is graha, meaning something that holds or seizes us. The planets are carriers and transmitters of cosmic influences. They reflect karmic and pranic energies on both individual and collective levels. They can be described as doshas because like the biological humors they not only sustain us through their proper function but cause decay and death when in excess or 'out of" balance.

The main correlation between Vedic medicine and Vedic astrology is that between the doshas and the planets, with three planets corresponding to each of the three doshas.

The likea is a hot and penetrating planet governing digestion, combustion and transformation.

The  like  is a cold and damp planet that allows for the consis­tency and cohesion of our bodily tissues.


The 3 Doshas or Biological Humors

Ayurveda classifies our life energies into three primary biological forces called DOShas, meaning 'factors of decay', owing to the problems they cause when out of balance. The doshas are a similar concept to the biological humors of ancient Greek thought (which also had astrological equivalents).

First and foremost is a principle of energy, movement or change connected to the wind and the air element called  dosha, which means the 'life-wind'

Second is a principle of light, heat or combustion connected to the Sun and the fire element called  doshawhich means 'that which cooks things'.

Third is a principle of matter, inertia or preservation connected to the Moon and the water element called  dosha, meaning 'what holds all things together'.

To complete the astrological paradigm, the main planet ruling over Vata dosha is , which represents the negative side of our vital energy as entropy, time and decay. Yet Vata also relates to  on its positive side as a force of movement, communication and expression.

In terms of physics, we could say that Vata is the principle of energy in the universe, Pitta is the principle of light, and Kapha is the principle of matter. Matter, light and energy are the three main factors in the world that can be converted into one another.

The three doshas of    are their biological counterparts. The tree doshas are modifications of the 5 great elements of

which represents the 5 levels of matter as solid, liquid, radiant,gaseous and etheric.Each dosha projects the qualities of its respective element through the biological process.

This is the basic force or 'Force element".In addition to their primary elements as air, fire and water, each dosha relates to a secondary element that serves as its container or medium of expression. This is the field of operation in which the dosha operates or its "field element." In astrological parlance, the force,elements of the Doshas are like the planets and the field,elements of the Doshas are like the signs ruled by the planet.

It does not, however, make a person , light or etheric, but, on the contrary, creates bulk and weight. Otherwise the correspondences of elements and doshas are the same.

THE SIGNS AND THE DOSHAS QUAlities

Vedic like Western astrology uses the 12 signs of the zodiac. How, ever, in the Vedic system, the signs are a twelvefold division of the fixed stars, what is called a 'sidereal zodiac', not tropically based as is the case with the signs of western astrology based upon the equnoxes.

The difference between the two systems, which coincided nearly two thousand years ago, is now around 24°, with the point of the vernal equinox around 6° of  sidereally, moving back ward toward the sign . While those trained in western astrology may find this reorientation of signs to be confusing, it is not only more accurate astronomically, but is arguably the original form of astrology, which began with the observation of the fixed stars.

The twelve signs of the zodiac from  to  represent the fields in which the 9 planets operate. They are an extension of the qualities of their ruling planets, for example, with Mars-ruled  having a strong  energy in its qualities. Like the planets, the signs also correspond to the elements.

  • vortex spirall ball≗  ⋉ Air signs afford a good development of the mind and nervous system along with a good creative and expressive energy, but do not give good endurance and so the person can suffer from overwork or overexertion. They are also more prone to psychological problems.Air signs in general correspond with , relating to the mind, nervous system, communication and other Vata fields of activity.
  • flame≗  ⋉ ⋈  –Fire signs usually endow a person with a good vitality, strong digestion, good circulation and excellent resistance to disease, owing to the ability of the fire element to both nourish the body and burn up pathogens. Fire signs correspond to , relating to the digestive system, cir­culatory system, perception and other Pitta fields.
  • aqua flow break ⋉ -Water signs provide a good development of the bodily tissues, which consist primarily of water, but have a tendency towards disease through excess water or weight, so their resistance to disease car:t be limited. They can be emotionally sensitive when afflicted. Water signs correspond with , relating to the bodily fluids, emotions and other Kapha fields.
  • earth break ball≗  ⋉ ⋈  –Earth signs have the weakest potential in terms of health because they keep ones energy on a physical level and can increase entropy or the forces of decay, but they can also give athletic, healing or creative powers. Their range for both ℅ health and ℞ disease is the greatest of all the signs. Earth signs represent the body and its structure, mainly  fields, but more as a field in which the other three elemental forces can operate.Some Vedic astrology texts relate Earth signs to  or the air humor. This is because earth signs relate to the physical body and keep our energy more at a physical level. They make disease more likely and disease is mainly caused by , particularly the earth sign , the main sign relating to /≣ Strictly equivalent to or Cardinal signs/✄ poor health. Earth signs are also more likely to cause depression in a person, which keeps our energy at a physical level and causes Vata to increase. In this regard, we could say that air signs represent the healthy side of , while earth signs have a propensity towards the unhealthy side of Vata. Yet we must also remember that earth signs afford the greatest capacity for accomplishment in the physical realm as well and are commonly found among athletes, artists and performers, not just those ✄ suffering from health problems!

In addition to their correspondence to the elements, the signs relate to three qualities as movable (cardinal in Western astrology ≋ Triple Tilde or Moveable signs ), fixed /Ɂ latin Glottal stop /, and dual or ambivalent /mutable in Western astrology ⏛ Fuse/.

These qualities have doshic implications, though of a less consequential manner. is usually moveable, cardinal (≋colorful), direct or determined, like fire which burns in a specific manner depending upon its fuel.  is fixed Ɂ or steady, like water that does not move unless acted upon by an external force. as air is mutable or ambivalent. Sometimes it blows (moves quickly), sometimes it doesn't blow at all.

The doshic impact of earth signs can be interpreted relative to these three qualities.

Fixed earthɁ,  has a more quality with the , a watery planet exalted in Taurus. Mutable earth⏛ Fuse,  is related to  with , a Vata planet exalted in Virgo. Cardinal earth≋, though not as strongly, has some relation, ship to with , a Pitta planet exalted in Capricorn.
Yet regardless of the qualities of the signs themselves, we must remember the general rule that the nature of the planets is more important than that of the signs. The planets represent the force, while the signs represent the field in which these forces operate. The force always tends to dominate its field of activity.

While the doshas of the planets and signs should be looked at to, gether greater weight should be given to the nature of the planets. Another important method is to look at the qualities of the sign according to those of its ruling planet which is kind in opposition with the natural order or Rulers in all other systems, so this must be transformed and in this way we transform Doshas as elemental ingredients parts of definitions.If this is not done the old definitions will predominate all your personal doshas and part of everything written from Doctors, specialist etc. persons

Here we take the Western elementals QUALITIES tables to assign logical Rulers of Doshas, as part of DOS old Vedic systems which is kind of NOT changed in last 1000 years and this is BAD sign at least for our Body ,Mind and Spirit as will be accounted to operate with old sequence set of variable and definitions called DOS in pc programming as language code.In this way every Vedic chart Jyotish or Lahiry is Open system for remodelling of the 7 planets which are just part of the old astrology soft system of the Solar system structure and is not useful in the background of the Expanding Universe models in out times as to be 21 century

DIVISIONAL CHARTS

Along with the usual birth chart, called the Rashi chart; Vedic astrology employs a number of subtle, harmonic or divisional charts, which are mathematical subdivisions of the birth chart.Most popular kinds is called Lahiri Jiotish sideral Based open coordinates chart of the 7 planets based on Ephemeris on 3000 y. old and kind of static updated in most astrology softs.

When you deal with Vedic charts you must have in mind that this system as any other system must be Updated via your personal chart in any form as circle or square, depends which geometry you use but in basic they are the same as planetary positions in degrees, minutes and seconds, which are the most important rulers of every planet and very precise predictor for upcoming stuff you dealing with.In this way you can turn on or off the malefic qualities given in Vedas of the planetary body as they are based on NAKASHTRAS or the Hindu Lunar Mansions which are just Fixed stars in particular constellations and are the base of the malefic disbalance of any planet in chart.

Above all you must imagine that your chart is living software program which  run's your life  via a virtual copies of the planetary bodies with their influences as per definition given for the year you have been born.So these definitions must be updated in some point of your life by proper astrologer  cuz if not they still run on auto from the moment which they have been created as code in the matrix.

the Nalashtraas have NOT FIXED STATIC VALUES as you may think or as given in traditional sources.The also correspond to the qualities of FIXED western Signs and Houses

Fixed

Always referred as Fixed in all time periods. Appropriate since it refers to things that don't change. They firm up the seasonal weather initiated by the preceding signs.

  • Sustainability, continuance
  • Inaction- resistance
  • Identity – self-centered action
  • Energy moves: Tries not to move, static, inert (neither external nor internal)
  • Energy toward the center

These signs are found in months where you expect weather typical of the season you are in, Aquarius is the coldest 30 days of winter, Leo is the hottest part of summer

Planetary positions in several divisional charts are considered important for /⌘ Place of interest/health /⌆ Perspective/. Most notable of these are the positions in the drekkana (harmonic third ≞ Measured by  ≒ Approximately equal to or the Image of) for ☬ Adi Shakti or Prana  and general vitality,navamsha (harmonic ninth ≞ Measured by  ≒ Approximately equal to or the Image of ) for the connection with the soul and for longevity, in the dvadashamsha (harmonic twelfth Measured by  ≒ Approximately equal to or the Image of ) for ancestry and congenital influences, and in the trimshamsha (harmonic thirtieth Measured by  ≒ Approximately equal to or the Image of ) for specific diseases and injuries. The na-vam-sha /ShaQi the Poison arrow of QI/≘Corresponding of  to  is the most important of these and should be examined in the same way as the basic birth (ra-shi) chart.

In determining health, a good Vedic astrologer will examine several of these divisional charts with the ra-shi777 (birth ≘Corresponds to ) and Moon charts. In addition to these, another specific factor often examined for determining the Ayurvedic constitution is the na-vam-sha sign /ShaQi poison arrow Qi / of the Moon.


Planets and the 7 Ra-Shi

PLANETS AND THE TISSUES OF THE BODY 7 RA-SHI777 in BODY

The influence of the planets extends to the tissues (dhatus-duat) of the body as described in Ayurveda. As with the doshas, there is not a final one-to-one correlation to the planets but a number of important correlations.
1. PLASMA (Rasa dhatu)-The Moon's rulership over the water element in the body and  brings its influence to the plasma or basic bodily fluid as well. A strong Moon provides good hydration to the body, which is the main function of the plasma. Classical Vedic astrology also considers  because of its association with the skin, with which the plasma is connected. An afflicted Mercury can cause skin diseases, which often arise from a sensitive mind and nervous system.
2. BLOOD diamond cut(Rakta dhatu) -In Ayurveda,  or the fire-humor is a waste-material or by product of the blood. This connects it to Pitta planets like the Sun that governs the heart ≠ which drives the blood. In classical Vedic astrology, the role of the Moon as governing bodily fluids, of which the blood is the most important, is also considered.  as the planet causing most Pitta and blood disorders must not be forgotten either.
3. MUSCLE (Mamsa dhatu)-  is a planet of work and action, which in the physical body occurs mainly through the muscles, so its role relative to the muscles is important. Classical Vedic astrology also considers Saturn, which is responsible for the structure of the body. The muscles are the main tissue that forms the body.
4. FAT (Meda dhatu)- is the main planet responsible for bulk, weight or largeness in the body, so its role relative the fat tissue is central. Yet the Moon's role to allow us to hold water and weight must also be considered.
5. BONE (Asthi dhatu) -The bone is the main  tissue in the body and is intimately connected to the absorption of Prana in the large intestine, both of which factors relate to. Classical Vedic astrology also considers the role of the Sun because only if the  is strong and digestion good can the bones be properly built up.

6. NERVE OR MARROW (Majja dhatu) -connection to the nerves (gray marrow) is well known in both western and Vedic astrology. The role of  relative to the red marrow of the bones is another aspect of Majja Dhatu in Vedic thought.  and  as causing nervous system disorders, largely by depleting the nerve tissue, should not be overlooked either.
7. REPRODUCTIVE (Shukra dhatu)-The Sanskrit name for  as Shukra also refers to the reproductive fluid. The strength or weak­ness of the reproductive system is closely connected to the placement of in the chart. Yet the Moon's general role in fertility is an­ other significant factor.
