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.

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.

Venue: AD Design School, Malviya Nagar, New Delhi

Topic: Āruḍha and Siblings

  1. We will touch the āruḍha lagna calculations quickly along with the options of the two riders that move the āruḍha when it is in first or seventh bhāva from the lagna
  2. Then we learn how to check which is stronger – lagna or seventh from āruḍha; what are the implications of the shifting of āruḍha.
  3. Āruḍha and siblings – how to check siblings number and how do the graha affect them. How to check the planets governing them and how they impact our āruḍha
  4. What causes someone to be the oldest or youngest in a family;

After some discussions it has been decided to defer the Bala Jyotiṣa Course for another time as there is a lot of pressure from other courses like the Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course and the Śiva Mahāpurāṇa Course. In the meantime to ensure that studies in Vedic Astrology continue with joy we have decided to have informal classes in Delhi, whenever the teachers are available.

Topic for the next class shall be decided at the end of every class.

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).
