Why should Vedic Astrology be integrated into Yoga practice & trainings?
Classical Yoga contains vast knowledge of human psychology and puts a great deal of emphasis on mental and spiritual health counseling. While Yoga and Ayurveda offer the remedies, Vedic Astrology, is the primary diagnostic tool of Yoga psychology. Called Jyotish in Sanskrit, or the “eyes of Vedas, it serves as the guide to all the Vedic branches of knowledge because it reveals the hidden dimensions of our psyche, as well as the hidden planetary periods (dashas) of our life’s journey.
Fundamental Principles of Vedic Astrology Counseling:
- Our psyche is much more than a product of the circumstances of our current life.
- The Vedic horoscope illuminates our Samskaras, which are the accumulated experiences from present and past lives, ancestral memories, and our cultural heritage, that are deeply rooted in our psyche.
- Our Samskaras reveal our deeply embedded paradigms of belief, including our psychological foundation, desires, fears, aspirations, and mental and physical health tendencies, making it possible to predict the possible course of our life through astrological techniques.
- Karma is the actions we perform as a result of our Samskara. The evolutionary growth cycle of birth, death, rebirth, and resulting karma is the path the soul takes on its journey towards the realization of its cosmic roots (liberation).
- As revealed by the horoscope, each person’s body/mind/consciousness or karmic ecosystem is unique, therefore, the counseling, mentoring, and remedies they receive should also be adapted to their unique Karma.
- The mathematical algorithms of the Vimshottari Dasha system can reveal the broad outline of how our life decade by decade, year by year, month by month, and even day by day.
- There is no better mentor and coach than self-knowledge of our unique and ingrained perspective, our unique myth or karma, and the timeline of our life’s story, as revealed by our horoscope.
- The primary task of a Vedic Astrology Counselor is to help the client develop skills and dedication for their unique life story.
- Our True Self (Atman) transcends Karma. Like Yoga and meditation, the ultimate goal of Vedic Astrology Counseling is to train the mind to witness to our True Self. The result is increased joy, compassion, and fulfillment in our daily life and a natural enfoldment of divine union – Yoga.
