Science Of Light : Vedic Astrology > Page1

Astrology has been regarded all over the world as the foremost of the occult sciences. It is the primary Vedanga or limb of the Vedas, as through it the right timing of actions. It is called the science of reason or causes "Hetu Shastra" as through it we can discern the karmic patterns behind events. Another name for it is "Jyotish", the science of light, as it deals with the subtle astral light patterns which inform and sustain our physical being and determine our destiny in life.

Some form of astrology was used in most ancient cultures to aid all aspects of life. In the Vedic culture as in others it set forth the ritual and the calendar and the main sacraments and initiations of life. The ancients did not look to the stars out of mental curiosity or primitive superstition but according to a profound reverence for the power of the cosmos. It was their means of making their action in harmony with the rhythms of the universe. Modern science also shows us a mysterious, dynamic and cataclysmic universe which we must pay homage to but has yet to provide us with a means of tuning into it to guide what we do.
