Paraṁparā

Parampara (Oral Tradition)

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.
