Dhana Kāraka One Feb 2017: Pt. Sanjay Rath

Saturday, 18 Feb 2017: Sun and Moon
Sūrya is the controller of Rajas guṇa. We learn about Sūrya Kendra and the position of the four digpāla, especially Kubera the controller of wealth in the horoscope. We get to see why some people are truly blessed and have a greater access to wealth resources due to the blessing of Kubera. The effect of parivartana as well as double parivartana shall be examined alone with some case studies so that the concept of Sūrya Kendra becomes very clear.
Chandra is the suppresser of Tamas guṇa. Chandra kendra play a crucial role in deciding the four ayana – dharma, artha, kāma and mokṣa. We develop the theme from asta lagna and amalā yoga to show why the tenth bhāva from Chandra Lagna is so important for initiating one’s career and path. After all the mind is the real boss of the being. In addition, we learn some Chandra Yoga as taught by Parāśara including sunaphā, anaphā and durudharā yogas, chandra upachaya yoga including the derivation of upachaya based on asta lagna. Kemadruma yoga, daridra yoga and natural maturity will be touched.

Dhana Karaka Day One

Sunday, 19 Feb 2017: Dhana Karaka Brhaspati
The benediction of Jupiter, the guru of the devas. Examine its power to enhance abilities by association. Kāraka Bhāva – examine the 2nd, 11th and 5th, 9th bhāva signified by Jupiter. Free movement of graha is like free flow of sound waves. We study how graha in adjoining bhāva or argala bhāva affect this free flow of Guru kṛpā. The power of Guru’s blessings can be clearly seen in the lives of Lata Mangeshkar and some such blessed souls. We learn how this shows in the chart and how Jupiter can represent the blessings of Īśvara.
We examine some Dhana Yogas in this first Workshop on Dhana.

Dhana Karaka Day Two

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.

Jyotisa Guru

rath_sqAbout Sanjay Rath
Sanjay Rath belongs to a traditional family of astrologers from Bira Balabhadrapur Sasan village of Puri, Orissa, which trace their lineage back to Shri Achyuta Das (Sri Achyutananda). Sanjay studied under his uncle, late Pandit Kasinath Rath. His grandfather, the late Pandit Jagannath Rath, was the Jyotish Ratna of Orissa and authored many books on Jyotish. He began his studies at a tender age, and received the depth of Jyotish only found among those who have been trained in the ancient traditional way of the parampara. He later became a graduate of mechanical engineering and worked for some time with the Government of India. Leaving government service to devote himself completely to Jyotisha, he has the depth of the ancient knowledge with the ability to communicate it to the modern mind.
He uses Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra, Jaimini Upadesa Sutras, Brihat Jataka and Saravali as the foundations of Jyotisha and teaches from various other Jyotish scripture and sacred literature such as the Bhagavad Gita, Upanisads, Puranas, etc. www.srath.com

Objectives

The Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course (PJC) is to be taught in the tradition of Puri, India and includes spiritual instructions to develop the mind in order to grasp the entire subject. The student is to develop a keen understanding of Vedic astrology and will master all the śloka of Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra (BPHS).
The syllabus primarily includes the jyotiṣa classic Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra as available today. The various chapters are grouped into 28 topics to be covered in four years for the certification as Jyotiṣa Paṇḍita.
This is the sixth batch of PJC Students, the first being mentored by Pt. Sanjay Rath, second by Dr. Andrew Foss and third by Sarbani Rath.

Description

The course for each academic year of the Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course shall formally commence from Meṣa saṅkrānti (about 16 April) and shall be taught online. Based on their convenience the mentors may decide to have monthly webinars and/or contact classes for some parts of the course.

jaimini500When we taught the Upadeśa Sūtra of Maharṣi Jaimini in a course (Jaimini Scholar Program 2007-11), there were just a few students from India. Of these three scholars formed a group and taught the course in the Himalayas to a dozen students who will be graduating as scholars in 2017. Hopefully some of them will take the certification viva-voce and qualify as Jaimini Scholars and an even fewer number will qualify as JSP teachers. Certification is done by an independent board of scholar-teachers headed by Steve Hubball. Please visit www.jaiminisutra.com for detailed information in this regard.

JSP 2017

With the aim of preparing another batch of scholar-teachers of the Upadeśa Sūtra, we have decided to teach the Jaimini Scholar Program once again. Unlike the first time when all classes were taken by Pt. Sanjay Rath, this time it will be taught by a team of scholars in the Himalayas. The team includes Sarbani Rath and Ajay Zharotia. In future, we may add other scholars to this team.

Take a look at the website for the course www.upadesasutra.com

Each year is basically one adhyāya of the Upadeśa Sūtra, except the 3rd adhyāya that is studied in two academic years – year3 and 4.

Traditional Method

The sūtra are taught in the oral tradition in the Himalayas and attendance is compulsory. We are not going to have any video-conferencing or such lectures. Classes commence at 8am and continue till 5pm ending with recitation of Vedic Hymns. It may seem impossible to do such hectic studies, but believe me, this feeling is wrong as hundreds of students have studied in this vedic pattern for the last decade through both JSP as well as PJC. You too will automatically fit into this.

One of the worries is what if you cannot attend one of the five-academic years of JSP in the Himalayas. We have contingency plans which include having private tuition with a Jaimini Scholar to cover the missed portions of the JSP. However, this can entail a small additional cost to the scholar-teacher which is to be paid directly. Normally this does not exceed ₹2000 per hour.

Download

To download any of the following zip files, click the right mouse on the “Download” link and select “Save target as” in the pop-up menu. The corresponding zip file will be saved on your computer in the directory you choose. Go to that directory in a windows explorer. Locate the zip file and unzip it. You will get a file with the same name, with .zip in the file name replaced by .exe. Run the executable by double-clicking on it. The corresponding installation should start in a few seconds. Read the instructions and follow them. The first screen may give a security warning about an unknown publisher. If you give permission to the installer executable to run by clicking “Run”, the installation will proceed.

Read the following carefully and choose the version to download.

1. jh_update.zip (2.6 MB): If you already have Jagannatha Hora version 7.3 (or higher) operational on your computer, you only need this update to move to the latest. Download
2. jh_short_install.zip (3.7 MB): Fresh and short installation of Jagannatha Hora. It contains accurate ephemeris for 1800-2400 AD and uses an approximate analytical model for other dates in 2999 BC-3000 AD. It has a very very small atlas with some important cities. Download

It is the author’s earnest and sincere hope that your use of this software will result in a lot of souls being helped and also in a renaissance in the knowledge of Vedic astrology!
