The understanding of Astrology is important as it is believed that the Navagrahas (nine planets) have a major influence in our lives.
The study of Astrology dates back to time immemorial and the proof of the Astrology scriptures are empirically verifiable, well documented, and demonstrated.
Within Nature, this body of knowledge is so well documented that it is difficult for us to conceive! In addition, this knowledge has the capacity to create friendship, even for those who have little or no understanding.
Unfortunately, it appears that many people have lost faith in the Astrology scriptures. This is primarily due to the limited depth of understanding of many Astrologers.
Many Astrologers today have not studied the best sources of knowledge, and, even if they have, they may not have performed the spiritual disciplines necessary to actually understand and properly apply the knowledge.
Because of this, many Astrologers are not able to inspire faith in the accuracy of what they are telling.
However, there are some Astrologers who have combined the study of the highest knowledge with the performance of spiritual disciplines.
It is these gifted Astrologers who are able to communicate true knowledge with faith. They apply the knowledge and demonstrate the benefits to mankind by helping us understand the path ahead and illuminating the unknown future.
This knowledge can be as useful to a person as a stick is to a blind man.
When a blind man begins to explore the dark path ahead, the stick serves to make things known and to make the journey more efficient. He can tell when the path goes up, comes down, or when there is an obstacle in the path. By the help of the stick, he can understand, and in many instances, he can be saved from difficulties.
Similarly, by means of the Astrology scriptures, we can make our life journey with the understanding of where the path will be more difficult, where there may be obstacles, and what to expect in order to avoid surprises along the way.
In this way, the Astrology Scriptures illuminate the darkness along our individual paths.
Jai Maa! Jai Swamiji!
