Śrī Jagannāth Center announces its first workshop in the study of Dhana Yoga. This workshop shall lay the foundation for the study of wealth and career directions. There are three pivots to the study of life and these are the three charts – lagna, sūrya and chandra chakra. The role played by each of these charts is to be examined in the first day of this two-day workshop. On the second day, we examine the role of Devaguru Bṛhaspati as the kāraka. It is interesting that all three sattva guṇa planets – Sun, Moon and Jupiter play such an important role in life.

Workshop Programme

Saturday, 18 Feb 2017: Sun and Moon
Sūrya is the controller of Rajas guṇa. We learn about Sūrya Kendra and the position of the four digpāla, especially Kubera the controller of wealth in the horoscope. We get to see why some people are truly blessed and have a greater access to wealth resources due to the blessing of Kubera. The effect of parivartana as well as double parivartana shall be examined alone with some case studies so that the concept of Sūrya Kendra becomes very clear.
Chandra is the suppresser of Tamas guṇa. Chandra kendra play a crucial role in deciding the four ayana – dharma, artha, kāma and mokṣa. We develop the theme from asta lagna and amalā yoga to show why the tenth bhāva from Chandra Lagna is so important for initiating one’s career and path. After all the mind is the real boss of the being. In addition, we learn some Chandra Yoga as taught by Parāśara including sunaphā, anaphā and durudharā yogas, chandra upachaya yoga including the derivation of upachaya based on asta lagna. Kemadruma yoga, daridra yoga and natural maturity will be touched.

Sunday, 19 Feb 2017: Dhana Karaka Brhaspati
The benediction of Jupiter, the guru of the devas. Examine its power to enhance abilities by association. Kāraka Bhāva – examine the 2nd, 11th and 5th, 9th bhāva signified by Jupiter. Free movement of graha is like free flow of sound waves. We study how graha in adjoining bhāva or argala bhāva affect this free flow of Guru kṛpā. The power of Guru’s blessings can be clearly seen in the lives of Lata Mangeshkar and some such blessed souls. We learn how this shows in the chart and how Jupiter can represent the blessings of Īśvara.
We examine some Dhana Yogas in this first Workshop on Dhana.

Two Day Workshop with Sanjay Rath at 50 Gloucester Place
Monday 1st & Tuesday 2nd May
10am-5.00pm Sanjay Rath. Navamsha and Purusartha
Dharma (agni), artha (prthvi), kama (vayu) and moksha (jala) in the nakshatra pada forms the impulse of the manas (mind). Puruṣārtha is being discussed by other scholars during the conference – so we shall really not be talking on that. Instead we shall use the four aims to study some dictums of Parāśara and other classic texts. Here is a gist of what we discuss –
① Kārakāṁśa and Lagnāṁśa – to see the functioning of śubha yoga – how this works in the charts of royalty, other people as well as criminals. Śubha kendra helps the aims while aśubha spoils them – implications.
② Money Matters – what the ‘artha puruṣārtha’ shows and how can this can show major setbacks or rise in life. If navāṁśa does not support, dasāṁśa cannot give results – after all, navāṁśa really controls karma manifestation.
③ Marriage, relationships and celibacy. How to judge the character of people – these are some of the points related to kāma. It’s all about your emotional life.
④ Mokṣa dictums and some secrets about the devatā that really matters for your spiritual path. We will examine Ketu as mokṣa kāraka in great detail.
⑤ āruḍha: How does the āruḍha fit into all this? Importance of the Āruḍha Lagna in allowing manifestation. Maybe you have a great dhana yoga in rāśi/navāṁśa, but will the āruḍha allow this to function? How does the āruḍha connect to the navāṁśa? This is a dictum of Parāśara related to ‘āruḍha kendra-nātha’ – that’s the clue.
⑥ nāḍi navāṁśa: If time permits, I will teach the nāḍi navāṁśa also.

The four spiritual paths of karma-yoga, bhakti-yoga, rāja-yoga, and jñāna-yoga examined through Jyotiṣa. Starting with Puruṣārtha as Jyotiṣa Foundation, we learn how the desires in the soul shall manifest. Pain and suffering is not due to the desire itself, but due to attachment to the desire.

The four spiritual paths of yoga viz. karma, bhakti, raja, and jñāna are those of the chara ātmakāraka with other charakāraka. While all four paths are very desirable, not all are easy for the individual. We examine the formation of these yogas, their obstacles and the soul’s journey through this mundane existence.

Adhyātma Jyotiṣa Workshop by Pt. Sanjay Rath

chakra-sittingAdhyātma refers to the Supreme Spirit as well as one’s own; belonging to self or concerning self or individual personality. Self-realisation is what all spiritual paths aim to achieve, either as the final objective itself or an intermediate stage. Either way jyotiṣa, as the eye of the Vedas, is what helps us to see and know ourselves. This is the real jyotiṣa ocean that Ādi Shankara was referring to before his debate with Mandana Mishra (later Sureshwara). Every great journey must start with a tiny step. And this is what we aim to take up at the holy Sivananda Yoga Farm by starting with Vedic Cosmology and the Horoscope [The teachings are based primarily on Shiva Mahāpurāṇa, various upaniṣad, jyotiṣa classics etc.]

Tuesday, July 4th
AM: overview of multiple lokas; 14 loka and tala of Brahma mapped into the horoscope; seven lokas in seven chakras, their shape, devatā and Sanskrit akṣara; understanding positions of graha, nakṣatra, and various devatā; in essence you will get a three-dimensional view of jyotiṣa as well as its map to your chakras, especially mūlādhāra, bhū-loka, Śrī Śaktī, Vidyeśvara Gaṇeśa and saṅsāra (mundane life on earth).
PM: Nāḍi – iḍā, piṇgalā and suṣumna; their flow in ṣaḍchakra while suṣumna alone moves to sapta-chakra (sahasrāra); vāyu (wind) as the ‘vāha’ (carrier) of saṅsāra; prāṇa in jyotiṣa;
Wednesday, July 5th
AM: aṣṭa charakāraka overview; ātmakāraka is Śiva; choosing rudrākṣa; understanding advaita and dvaita concept in jyotiṣa. kāraka lagna (rāśi) and kārakāṁśa (navāṁśa) as taught by Parāśara; īṣṭa devatā, dharma devatā, pālana devatā in navāṁśa; ṣaṣṭiāṁśa link to vedic knowledge; the Guru and dīkṣa timing;
PM: bandhana and mokṣa; mokṣa yoga of Parāśara

Objectives

The Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course (PJC) is to be taught in the tradition of Puri, India and includes spiritual instructions to develop the mind in order to grasp the entire subject. The student is to develop a keen understanding of Vedic astrology and will master all the śloka of Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra (BPHS).
The syllabus primarily includes the jyotiṣa classic Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra as available today. The various chapters are grouped into 28 topics to be covered in four years for the certification as Jyotiṣa Paṇḍita.
This is the sixth batch of PJC Students, the first being mentored by Pt. Sanjay Rath, second by Dr. Andrew Foss and third by Sarbani Rath.

Description

The course for each academic year of the Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course shall formally commence from Meṣa saṅkrānti (about 16 April) and shall be taught online. Based on their convenience the mentors may decide to have monthly webinars and/or contact classes for some parts of the course.

JaiminiLogoWhen we taught the Upadeśa Sūtra of Maharṣi Jaimini in a course (Jaimini Scholar Program 2007-11), there were just a few students from India. Of these three scholars formed a group and taught the course in the Himalayas to a dozen students who will be graduating as scholars in 2017. Hopefully some of them will take the certification viva-voce and qualify as Jaimini Scholars and an even fewer number will qualify as JSP teachers. Certification is done by an independent board of scholar-teachers headed by Steve Hubball. Please visit www.jaiminisutra.com for detailed information in this regard.

JSP 2017

With the aim of preparing another batch of scholar-teachers of the Upadeśa Sūtra, we have decided to teach the Jaimini Scholar Program once again. Unlike the first time when all classes were taken by Pt. Sanjay Rath, this time it will be taught by a team of scholars in the Himalayas. The team includes Sarbani Rath and Ajay Zharotia. In future, we may add other scholars to this team.

Take a look at the website for the course www.upadesasutra.com

Each year is basically one adhyāya of the Upadeśa Sūtra, except the 3rd adhyāya that is studied in two academic years – year3 and 4.

Traditional Method

The sūtra are taught in the oral tradition in the Himalayas and attendance is compulsory. We are not going to have any video-conferencing or such lectures. Classes commence at 8am and continue till 5pm ending with recitation of Vedic Hymns. It may seem impossible to do such hectic studies, but believe me, this feeling is wrong as hundreds of students have studied in this vedic pattern for the last decade through both JSP as well as PJC. You too will automatically fit into this.

One of the worries is what if you cannot attend one of the five-academic years of JSP in the Himalayas. We have contingency plans which include having private tuition with a Jaimini Scholar to cover the missed portions of the JSP. However, this can entail a small additional cost to the scholar-teacher which is to be paid directly. Normally this does not exceed ₹2000 per hour.
