Most people, when they think of Jyotish, the Indian system of astrology, invariably think of temples, gongs, incense, pot-bellied priests, amulets, Poojas and gemstones, all against the background of indecipherably mysterious but soothing chants. It seems that despite all the ‘airing’ that has gone on over last many years and despite the increasing openness in recent years - some individuals still consider Jyotish as being some kind of a cloistered and sacred closet that has a mystical aura without which it cannot exist (therein lies the myth!).
Some of these myths originate from ignorance or perhaps from partial knowledge while others are really rationalizations put forth by tropical astrologers who feel the need to reconcile with the differences caused by different frameworks with somewhat rules and symbolism. Like any other form of astrology, Jyotish has its share of psychics that knowingly or inadvertently use the horoscope and astro-symbolism as launching pads for their psychic ?ights.
The advice they give is valuable and accurate, perhaps more so than that given by many astrologers, but their experiences should not be converted into astrological rules as they pose a problem for those who truly utilize astrological rules as a logical structure. Perhaps there is no purely logical astrologer as all of us are psychic and intuitive to some extent, but we are talking about relative degrees of logic v/s gut feeling here.
Modern practitioners and students of astrology generally toy an uneasy relationship with remedial astrology. Although many individuals think of astrology as being a science, none of us are really oblivious to the empirical nature of the craft of astrology. Most of us worldly beings must, of necessity, live in a reality that is deeply grounded in the physical/material where cause is followed by effect and where symbols of rational thinking and scienti?c progress surround us and form much of our perceived daily reality.
It is, therefore, difficult not to feel uneasy when we move away ‘afar’ from a very earthy and rational way of looking at things that are a part of our ‘human experience’. When the links between the cause and effect regarding anything or any phenomenon seem tenuous and weak, we understandably become dubious and anxious. This has nothing to do with what is indeed true in the universe or what works, but just the different natures of the ‘perceived’ reality that we live in and the other much larger one which is home to the astrological phenomena and spiritual reality.
Vedic astrology, despite its very strong ties with the Karmic hypothesis and its implied ‘fatalistic’ misconception, has a very well developed and detailed remedial system. Ironically, this also underscores the fact that Vedic astrology supports the view that destiny can be changed by our willful actions and certain procedures, and hence really advocates the supremacy of individual choice and free-will!
The remedial medicine bag of the Jyotishi (Vedic astrologer) includes tools such as penance, fasting, special spiritually-endowed sound vibrations (Mantras), glyphs and devices (Yantras) and religious ceremonies (Pooja) with charity (the concept of tithe may sound more familiar to some readers of this article!).
In this book he has dwelt with the various remedies ranging from yoga, mantra, pooja, color therapy and other methods. This is a comprehensive book where the remedies have been related to various planets and their effect. The Author has tried to compile the various remedies that are available in the public domain and that have been learnt from experience so that it could be beneficial to both the common man and those interested in the science of astrology.
