Vedic Astrology Simply Put is a colorful, fun, and simplified entry into the mysterious and captivating world of Vedic Astrology, called Jyotish in India. William R. Levacy, an astrologer with more than two decades of experience, offers beautifully rendered illustrations and text to ease your understanding of this ancient system of behavior and trend analysis. This book gives you straightforward guidance on: * How to decipher the myths and origins of Vedic astrology * How Vedic astrology differs from Western or Tropical astrology * The Vedic style of interpreting the Sun, Moon, planets, houses, and signs * How the Vedic seers used the Moon signs (called nakshatras) and other special techniques to zero in on how people behave * How to use Ayurveda, the Science of Health; and Vastu--the Science of Space (India's counterpart to Feng Shui)--integrated with Vedic astrology, the Science of Time Much of the Vedic art was custom created for this book by master artists in India. There's also a special bonus enclosed--a free CD-Rom of the popular "Parashara's Light SE" Vedic astrology software.
The scientific, historic, and popular basis behind the ancient art of astrology is explored in this comprehensive reference. The guide also includes a table of astrological glyphs and abbreviations, a section on casting a chart, and a chapter that explains and interprets every planet in every house and sign.
Dr. David Frawley, the well known Vedic scholar, writes of Mr. Trivedi - "India's most insightful young astrologer offers what is probably the longest, most researched and most original book on the Lunar Nodes published in modern times. This book is worthy of serious examination by all students of Astrology and all those interested in the great mysteries of life, death, karma and transformation."
"This book presents the ancient Hindu astrology in its occult and esoteric aspects. Traditional practitioners often failed to defend the veracity of the subject and dispel the scepticism of modern intellectuals. The ancient revelations have been restated here to meet contemporary requirements. The ancient seers presented Vedic Astrology under various assumptions and in allegorical and symbolic languages. They assumed polydimensional extension of human consciousness which was closely related with planetary impulses. Apart from the general approach to this ancient science, the study presents in depth the astrological description of the nature of man. It also provides deeper implications of various planetary combinations. Advanced practitioners as well as general readers will find the book informative, illuminating and highly rewarding.
This text presents an overview of Indian spiritual tradition and its relevance to the modern mind. It introduces Vedic knowledge as the root of many mystical traditions and as a complete system of spiritual science, including the practice of yoga as part of a field of spiritual culture.
Discover your destiny with The Oracle of Rama, the great oracle of India, and one of the simplest to use. Like the I Ching, it consists of various verses that one can use to answer life's questions. The system is based upon Tulsidas; originally written as an oracle and still a great classic in India today. Inspired by the symbolism of Lord Rama, a divine incarnation, the system is designed as a quick and insightful divination tool. This deck—the first of it’s kind—is divided into seven sections and offers the reader hundreds of different verses that you can select in response to queries. It can be used for matters of the heart and spirit, as well as for the practical matters of life; from health to relationships and career issues. Dr. Frawley adds new commentary and modern adaptation of this great classic.
