A word to those who wish to study Vedic
Jyotish has made quite a striking impact all around the world.
Obviously none of this has happened overnight, it has been
in use over 5000 years.
Many individuals who have tried to study Jyotish on their
own start out with much enthusiasm but soon their spirit gets
dampened by the excessive use of Sanskirt words and astrological
concepts that are utilized in many presentations. It is a
known fact that some of the basic approaches in Vedic astrology
require a certain amount of learning and orientation. This
somewhat tedious task creates the need for a systematic approach
that helps to sustain the level of interest of the student.
The best approach is to use one’s own horoscope as a
learning tool which will help tremendously.
The personal relevance for the student of such an approach
is undeniable; moreover, utilizing one’s own horoscope
also allows the student to evaluate the usefulness of Vedic
astrology and serves as a tool for assessing ones progress.
One must not stop at this most important chart and should
try their best to gain knowledge by analysing many charts
as possible. This added practical touch increases the value
of such learning and is perhaps very similar to what used
to be the oral tradition in many schools of astrology in ancient
India. It is understandable that there are quiet a lot of
restrictions when we try to learn astrology in a classroom
environment. However as long as the will to learn is strong,
and dedication and spirituality is high, much progress can
be expected despite the limitations.
Over the years, Dr Theja’s growing experience in teaching
and in face to face astrological consultations has provided
him with a clearer understanding of what many students or
clients those who are interested in learning Jyotish, desire
from such a course and what are the best ways of maximizing
its benefits to them. However, when one deals with individuals,
there are always subtle differences, surprises and some room
for further development. Dr Theja, therefore, encourages all
participants in his lectures to provide him with their valuable
feed-back and suggestions for further improvements. These
will be taken into account seriously and incorporated as efficiently
as is possible.
As he has mentioned during lectures, he can teach the rules
but cannot teach you experience. Therefore he recommends that
you try to do a chart analysis a day. In this way, you can
quickly develop your skills and gain experience.
