SoHaṁsa

Surya Yantra
Surya Yantra

Sohamsa is, perhaps, the best place for learning Vedic Astrology in the tradition. It offers free lessons from the old Bṛhaspati Jyotiṣa Course. The two professional courses relate to the teaching of the two most important classics of Vedic Astrology – (1) Jaimini Scholar Program and (2) Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course.
SoHamsa is the name of the Sun God as addressed to by Sri Ganesha. Soham is a Sanskrit word or mantra which means I am Him (Him refers to the omniscient Brahma) and thus, Soham is the mantra stating ‘aham brahmasmi’. All the living beings on earth produce this sound ‘So’ while inhaling and ‘Ham’ when they exhale.

In the reverse, the word ‘hamsa’ is derived from joining of the words ahaM + saH and represents the Jivatman/ individual soul. These two words sohaM and haMsa are the same with reversed phonemes representing pranayama (breathing process) where one starts with the inhalation and the other with exhalation. Taken together, these words sohaM + haMsa = sohaMsa and refers to the merging of the Jivatman and Paramatman…and that alone is the real goal of Jyotisa or Vedic Astrology. Every other seemingly significant objective is only another milestone for this goal.
This is an online resource for vedic astrologers to discuss the techniques of Parasara, Jaimini and other as taught by Pt.Sanjay Rath. You are welcome to join and share in the knowledge.
