Parampara (Oral Tradition)

vyasa01
Śrī Vedavyāsa: vyāṁ vedavyāsāya nāmaḥ
Vedic Astrology has always been taught in the Guru-Sisya parampara and most of these traditions of jyotish draw their lineage from Maharishi Parasara. This makes the Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra (BPHS: a compendium on astrology) as the basic text book for learning Jyotish. However, BPHS teaches Hora shartra or Astrology. The term Hora is derived from two words ‘Aho’ meaning ‘Day” and ‘Ratra’ meaning ‘Night’. Thus, this is the knowledge of the effect of time (Qualitatively) on the lives and times of peoples and nations etc. However, the full scope of jyotish is very vast and depending on the time the students at SJC are to be taught as much as possible. There is no fixed syllabus, as such for Jyotish and one life time is, perhaps inadequate to do full justice to it. Yet, we have attempted a Syllabus with a broad range of the areas that will be covered under each discipline.
The classes and teaching is free in the web but students have to cover costs for direct coaching and also pay for taking tests that will need to be corrected.
As regards studies in study circles, for the present, outstation students have to make their own arrangements for boarding and lodging.

Living Tradition

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu >> Achyutananda Dasa >> Ramachandra Dasa ….. Jagannath Rath >> Kashinath Rath >> Sanjay Rath …the lineage continues. Yes we are the living tradition, we the Jyotishi associated with SJC are the tradition.
