The most difficult of the classics in Vedic Astrology is the Upadesha Sutra of Maharsi Jaimini. Needless to say there are many scholars who have studied this when they reach that level where they have a fairly good mastery over the standard texts and have digested Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra to a decent level of competence. A competence that allows their minds to move through the sutra like thread in a needle stitching the various sutras into a fine cosmic diagram.
The Jaimini Scholar Program (JSP) is perhaps, the greatest and most detailed jyotiṣa study available on this planet. It is no mean feat to study this in depth and finally get certified after facing the viva-voce. This program was conceptualised and taught in the traditional manner by Pt. Sanjay Rath at Almora and Bhimtal, Himalayas.
Jack Labanauskas , Editor of the Enneagram Monthly http://enneagrammonthly.com/ reports the final year and certification of the first batch of Jaimini Scholar program at page 2 of EM Issue 182.
After two months in a perfectly nice nice place on the edge of a little lake, in the Himalayan foothills with weather only matched by California or Hawaii, it was still east, west, home’s best.
