Preliminary Preview of Topics covered in this class:
Philosophy of Sanatana dharma
Means Eternal Truth. Foundation of the Vedas
As stated in the Bhagavad Gita: We are immortal souls. We are Atma trying to reach the Paramatma. We are all unified, nothing is separate.
Dharma and Karma are two laws of the Universe
Karma is our actions, which we perform based on how intelligent we are with the energies of the 9 planets. These past decisions create our current reality.
Dharma is truth and righteousness. We must accept the truth of our Karma and act righteously in order to become enlightened.
Truth is delivered based on our actions.
Past actions give us the present situations.
Acting with the knowledge that we are divine, immortal souls allows us to act in accordance to the highest Dharma or truth.
Dharma is what is happening, Karma is how it comes about.
Astrology shows us our place in this present moment and how far along we are in our Karmic path towards enlightenment.
The 9 planets are avatars of Vishnu that store and deliver or Karma when the time is right.
Planets in Sanskrit are Grahas, which means seize or grasp.
Based on planetary positions, we see how evolved we are with the 9 energies.
We see the truth of our present situation, determined by our past Karma.
We learn where we stand in this Universe and what we need to evolve.
We see how intelligent we are we these 9 energies.
We see your natural tendencies and ignorances. This helps us to bring self awareness and to evolve.
Planets give us our Karma. But this doesn’t mean things are predetermined. We always have the free will to react and evolve. We can’t control our mind, but we CAN control our actions. Astrology lets us see and break from our tendencies.
We don’t through which mechanism the planets affect us. BUT we don’t even know how the human body works. So just because we can’t explain it perfectly doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
Example: If we have a weak Mars you can be compelled in your mind towards violence. However, if you are aware, you can work through that physical energy with exercise, thus evolving your karma with Mars.
The planets are constantly testing us to see how evolved we are.
Sometimes we have to fail and suffer to learn how to evolve in the future.
Astrology helps you align with the right choice towards evolution.
