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.

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.

Four Soul Yogas: Study the chara kāraka and the implications of ātmakāraka (soul significator) forming yogas that point to the four puruṣārtha as well as how these influences the four spiritual paths – rāja, karma, bhakti and jñāna yoga.

Kāraka Lagna: Timing the awakening of the soul and how it overcomes its principal desires.

Mokṣa Yoga: Which of these four spiritual paths is best suited for the individual. Parāśara’s Mokṣa Yoga and its application.

Devaguru Bṛhaspati Centre (DBC) announces its series of Vyāsa Workshops to be held at Delhi, India.

The first theme for this series is Marriage and Relationships which are, perhaps, the greatest challenge facing our times today as women try to carve a new role for themselves in society and men seek working partners and have various desires, little known to them.

MR#01: First Marriage-Relationship Workshop

Date
Sunday, 19 April, 2015 (Vaisakha Śukla Pratipada)
Venue
Conference Room II, Main Building, India International Centre, New Delhi
Registration
₹ 2000 | support@srijagannath.org

 

Topic

Every aspect of life is touched inconsiderable detail as a new bond is made. This implies every bhāva affecting the seventh bhāva of relationships in some manner or the other as well as the navāṁśa. Yet before we venture into the varga and other deeper subtleties of relationships, we need to understand the rāśi chart itself.

marriage1Matching is not just a guṇa score where the traditional belief that a high score indicates great marriage has already been proved to be so wrong. We plan this for a future workshop where we shall study guṇa matching in some detail. Our plan for the start is to do some useful jyotiṣa where we are going into the teachings of the purānic jyotiṣa.

① Lagna Matching and effect of ṣaḍāṣṭaka, dvirdvādasa and trikoṇa doṣa
② Lagneśa and Śubhapati (Rāśi Lord) Matching
③ Marriage Muhurta – Root principles
④ Sukha Bhāva: Marriage cannot last if either of the couple is suffering inside, and worse they don’t know why they suffer or what they seek in marriage. The effect of the ‘bhavat bhāvam’ principle.

Prerequisites

This workshop is not for rank beginners. You need to have some working knowledge of jyotiṣa like the twelve rāśi, their lords and natural friendships and nature of the graha (planets).

Jupiter & Saturn: The Jovian Years Demystified
The first approximation of Jupiterian transit in the zodiac gives 12 years while that for Saturn is 30 years. The lowest common multiple for these two figures is 60, which is the total period of the jovian cycle.
Let us study the jovian years keeping this cycle in mind, and the correction that it needs as this is an approximation.
What is the implication of Jupiter and Saturn being in trikoṇa, kendra or such bhāva from each other.
