Vedic Astrology Lesson 11
Kipling's " The East and West shall never meet " was countered
by Russell " The supremacy of the East was not only military.
Science, Philosophy and the arts all shone in the Eastern world
when the West was sunk in barbarism". The Occident's excellence
is in marketing; marketing is its second language! And because
of this skill, the West dominates the fields of Business & Industry.
The Orient is skilled in Philosophy & the psychic sciences. Its
second language is spirituality! Our aim is the union of East &
West, both experts in their methodologies; the vertical and the
horizontal means of acquiring knowledge!

Astrology , Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda

system. Psychosomatic diseases such as hypertension, peptic ulcer,
allergic asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome etc
can be treated by Holistic Medicine, it averrs. Holistic health provides
a way of life which prevents the reccurrence of some of these ailments.
It is more prophylactic, preventive, curative & restorative.
Ayurveda averrs that the toxins secreted by the body gets accumulated
as "Ama" and this Ama is the greatest enemy of the body.

best medicine. During fasting, Ama is dissolved and the digestive system
gets the much needed rest.

Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra )
Occult Vibratory Chemistry known as Tantra is a sister science of Yoga.
While Vedanta focusses on Sat, the Existence aspect of Being, Tantra
focusses on Chit, the Knowledge aspect of Being. The whole Universe
is the play and display of this mighty Consciousness Force known as Chit
Shakti in the Tantras. While Yoga talks about five sheaths or koshas,
according to Tantra, life is an unfoldment of the Self through six energy
centres called chakras. These six energy centres exist in our subtle
physical body. The Serpentine Power known as the Kundalini (which lie
coiled as a serpent in humans), can be awakened by Meditation. When
awakened, She rises from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra to
O Infinite Power ! Thou art the Mind-principle in the Eye brow Chakra
In the Throat Chakra , Thou sport as the Ether-principle
In the Heart Chakra, Thou sportest as Air- principle
In the Solar Plexus Chakra, Thou art Fire-principle
In the Navel Chakra , Thou exist as Water-principle
In the Root Chakra, Thou art the Earth _Principle, O Mighty Mother !
And in the Crown Chakra, Thou sportest blissfully with thy beloved Consort !
When She ( Kundalini ), the miscrocosmic power of the macrocosmic
Shakti, rises from from the Root Chakra & reaches the other Chakras,
siddhis or paranormal powers maniest. Clairvoyance, clairaudience,
distant healing, the ability to see Auras & ultimately Trikala-jnana
( the power to know Past, Present & future ) all manifest in the aspirant.
The aspirant should not be intoxicated by these siddhis. If he tries to
exhibit the siddhis or paranormal powers, he may not reach the Goal of Life.
Instead he should ignore these powers of the mind & continue his Tapas
(meditation) till he is liberated.
