Vedic Astrology    
  Thousands of years ago ancient sages have written Vedas and Vedic related literatures including Upanishads, Darsanas, Puranas and Ithihasas. They are based on individual, social, national and universal principles.The messages from these Vedas focus on a person’s lifestyle and management. Around 18 saints have written Vedic astrology to analyse a person’s life and to find solutions. A saint called Parashara muni, who is the father of Veda Vyas and Garga Muni are the important Acharya’s who have articulated the Vedic astrology. It is a part of Vedic literature and a system that originated in ancient India. It’s also known as"Jyotisham" (Pure consciousness)-the science of light whichrefers to the profound and mathematically advanced form of astrology originated in the ancient Vedic traditions of India. Through careful analysis, Jyothish can help us to evaluate our strengths and challenges in order to optimize our full potential. By forecasting the changing trends and periods of our lives, Jyothish can also enable us to make more evolutionary choices. It offers practical remedial measures to alleviate areas of difficulty, giving us the confidence to manifest our true destiny and create success, happiness, harmony on all levels and spiritual awareness.
  Basic Principle of Vedic Astrology and Management methods:    
  The Basic principle of Vedic astrology is that all things are linked. Your karma or fortune is determined by a predestined cosmic design. You are a soul incarnated in a body at a very specific time and place, and your life is a reflection of the greater whole into which you are born just as flowers bloom, say during spring time, when all conditions are perfectly congenial. So is the case with our births on this planet.

An important contribution of astrological approach to human problems is to lay bare the hidden forces operating on them. Sometimes the person himself is unable to understand his own basic motivations. Vedic astrology will help the individual to find out and explore their hidden potential for their betterment and harmony. It is a management and science of body, mind, intellect, pranic and spiritual.

Vedic Management is a systematic way of doing all activities in any field of human effort. It is about keeping oneself engaged in interactive relationship with other human beings in the course of performing one’s duty. One should approach astrology not for mere prognostications but for understanding the real selves. It is all about life and crisis management.

Physical body Analysis
Mental body Analysis
Intellectual body Analysis
Pranic body Analysis
Spiritual body Analysis

  Physical body Analysis
  Through Thamboola Analysis, Jyothish can analyse the present and future health far beyond the scope of modern science. It can reveal maladies that may occur, the part of the body that may affected, and why it may manifest. It can also analyse and predict metabolism of the individual and longevity.
  Mental body Analysis

Thamboola prashnam gives an in-depth mental analysis of an individual, determining his/her’s mental powers and capacity. It helps to understand and overcome the mental challenges, by understanding and rectifying the problems.
  Intellectual body Analysis
  A person’s behaviour, creativity, management capacity, education, profession and various other aspects can easily be known through this analysis. Thamboola gives the detailed explanation and remedies for the removal of obstacles to improve the personality and nature of the person.
  Pranic body Analysis
  Vedic astrology gives detailed explanation on Prana (energy) and its effect on human body and its impact on the personality of an individual. By analysing the Pranic part, the realization of plans, projects, schemes, ideas and overall work-management relations can be made easier. Thus a jyothish can teach or advice how to handle situations that generate stress in work-place and helping people to instantly recharge physically and mentally.
  Spiritual body Analysis
  Who are we? Where did we come from? Why do we live? And where do we go? These are few common basic questions man has always pondered about, and failed to get a credible answer.

Solutions:

Vedic astrology can give us detailed analyses through the above methods. It can analyse, detect and find solutions for the problems. Vedic astrology can tell us when we can expect rough times and how to neutralize them. Vedic astrology is based on idealistic philosophy; that there are two worlds, Inner spiritual world and the outer material world. The Inner world is the Mind, Prana, Mental and Spiritual whereas; outer world is the personality of humanity. It is in this inner spiritual world that the cause of what is happening in the outer material world are to be found, and the society we have today is the result of man’s reaction to the influence of the inner world. Astrological analyses enable us to see the inner nature or the core of one’s basic being. If the inner management is corrected or purified, the outer will bepleasant and fruitful.

Self-realization is very important when an individual start performing the rituals or remedies. An individual has to know that the problems he is facing are due to his past and present bad karma. By examining the problems Jyothish can find out which remedial measure is suitable for the situation at hand. There are many ways of remedies like Rituals, Temple worship, Vedic art forms, Music, Herbal, meditation etc. These remedies are spiritual as well as scientific.

According to Ayurveda, good health depends upon our capability to fully metabolize all aspects of life, assimilating that which nourishes and eliminating the rest. When we can’t completely digest our food, experiences, and emotions, toxins accumulate in our bodily tissues, creating imbalance and – ultimately – disease. Panchakarma is an elegant cleansing process that releases stored toxins and restores the body’s innate healing ability.
 
  Meditation:
  With meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more prana (energy). This result in joy, peace and enthusiasm as the level of prana in the body increases. Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an Alpha state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. Regular practice of meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus and expands through relaxation. If the meditation is done along with rituals and yaga, it gives an energizing feeling to the person.
