  1. namaste,
    would like to know what procedure do u follow for addmisions, like is it genraly availabe or you decide it by reading and analysing candidates chart. because i have read that one needs to have some indications in the chart to be efficient astrologer. please correct me if wrong.
    thank you.

    1. Its a very long answer. Remember that Jyotisa is a vedanga – one of the six parts of the veda. The veda is for every soul and should not be restricted. Therefore jyotisa is also for all and should not be restricted. To use jyotisa for predictions etc, is hora shastra, and this is used as people benefit. However this is not the real purpose of jyotish.
      Efficient astrologer is one thing but jyoish is another. We will soon be starting *rank basic* classes in Delhi for beginners – the kind of knowledge required to understand our Dharma and be a Hindu …or more correctly Satya Sanatani
