Overview for Ayurvedic Astrology: Self-healing Through the Stars
Vedic Astrology is an ancient science which is both universal and timeless. This vast body of knowledge encompasses all earthly phenomena past, present and future. Vedic Astrology is based on the laws of nature which express the unity within the diversity of life, and support the idea of an underlying intelligence governing all things with great precision and compassion. Vedic Astrology seeks to impart to mankind a tool with which to understand and live in greater harmony with nature, to maximize opportunities for growth and minimize suffering. Vedic Astrology is the study of the subtle energies emanating from the sky upon people, plants, animals and the Earth itself. These energies influence the human body and mind on all levels. The astrological chart has the capacity to indicate good or ill health, strong or weak vitality, proneness to disease or accident, emotional stability or instability, intellectual soundness or mental insanity. One should not underestimate the role of the planets in causing or indicating disease and suffering in life as well as indicating happiness and well-being. The ancient seers of India understood the close relationship between the laws of nature and mankind, and as a result of this natural connection developed a system of health called Ayurveda, the medicine of life itself. Although Western thinking has come to embrace these profound and essential truths to some degree with the discovery of Quantum Physics, this understanding of the nature of existence has been the basis of Vedic knowledge for thousands of years.... This is probably the first book available that jointly examines both Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology in detail for the modern reader. Even in the traditional literature on these subjects, there are few works that cross reference both so directly and completely. It is likely to be the standard work in the field for serious students for years to come.
