Vedic Astrology - Lesson 11

© 2001 G. Kumar - Eastrovedica

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 & Vedic Foods (Yogic Diet)

Vedic Foods means high octane fuels like clean water fruits, vegetables, sea vegetables, herbs and their teas, whole grains, seeds, nuts, legumes and plain white yogurt without fruit or sweeteners.

Foods not okayed by Ayurveda include low octane fuels - all sugars, excess oils, alcohols, stimulants such as narcotics, tea and coffee, white breads, candies, carbonated soft drinks and sweetened fruit juices.

Modern scientific research has found out the presence of "Phytochemicals" ("phyto" is a Greek term meaning "plant derived") that are disease preventing (cancer preventing) substances in all fruits and vegetables. Eat a variety of coloured fruits & vegetables to get a full range of phytochemicals. One should favour the consumption of less animal protein foods or dairy.

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 liberate Man.

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.
