Jyotish: why and what for?

NB! Please, take into consideration: the text below is not finished and still needs corrections.

To correctly implement in life (realized at the level of the Moksha River (Moksha), Dharma (Dharma) and other Purusharthas), you need to know yourself and learn the peculiarities of your fate (Karma). There is a certain system of laws in our world which it is actually based on. And the way a person integrates himself into these laws, influences his destiny and changes in his life. From that, "whether a man goes with or against the current flow" depends how those laws will work with his actions. If a man knows these laws and adheres to them, it will contribute to the success and good luck in life. Conversely, if they do not, it will bring different kinds of problems, unhappiness and other negative factors that bring difficulties in life. Therefore, there is an expression "If the power of the Universe is with You, what are You afraid of? And if it's not with you, what do you dream about?". And logically - if you don't know those laws it doesn't mean that you're free from their effects.

All Yoga is based on Sanatanadharma, the eternal knowledge about laws of the Universe. This is the body of knowledge that can enable man to understand the structure of the world and to integrate themselves into this system. And following the Sanatanadharma automatically brings it to the ultimate goal being the consciousness at the level of the Moksha.

Yoga says: "Sanatanadharma is divine revelation". This is the eternal teaching which had always existed, tens, hundreds of thousands of years ago. This knowledge of the gods passed those Rishis (the ancient sages, Rishi, carriers of eternal knowledge and a kind of intermediary between the gods and mortals). The ancient Rishis, passing the divine knowledge to people who have done this so that people can draw near to God and to know him. Getting knowledge about everything, one reaches the "vertical" knowledge that can give an answer to every question in life and that is to implement a system of consciousness. And the essence of Sanatanadharma is its truthfulness, because "it is true that forever, but what is true". During the time of existence of Sanatanadharma people use this knowledge in practice for thousands of generations with Hiranyagarbha, since the creation of the world. And people were unable to make this teaching anything new, they just repeatedly confirm the essence and teachings.

The Vedic tradition is one indivisible whole with an infinite variety of different branches, a single complex, which is based on Jyotir Vidya - "knowledge of the world." The Vedic tradition and cover all aspects of human activity without exception and go far beyond the limits of the human understanding. Jyotir Vidya is talking in a primitive language, the knowledge of which may "shine a light", a Kundali (Kundali in Sanskrit means "structure"), horoscope for any single specific creature, event, object, etc. etc. at any point in time and space, because every event has its own background (that preceded it, which caused) and its tendency (which will be responsible for the event). In this case, too, can be seen as a kind of event

The management of all in this world (events, individuals, objects) are the Grahas (Grahas in Sanskrit means "the thing that keeps control and controls"). The physical shell of Grahas in our world is the world. But the physical body every single Grahas are only a small fraction of the whole notion, which is embedded in the term "Graha". This is just a peculiar material symbols, terminals for people. Grahas also include the concept of Devas (Deva-Sanskrit name of deity Devi, starting with the male-female). The Devas are the origins, sources of energies that structure everything in our world. With the right use of knowledge about those or other influences that have Grahas, you can compose a Kundali on anything and get a specific picture to the desired.

Jyotish Veda (Veda short Jyotish Jyotish) is a system in Jyotir Vidya, which can be characterized as Vedic astrology. Astrology has always existed since the advent of the Grahas. And because the Devas form and determine everything in our life, are factors that impact the lives not only of individuals but also of some communities, etc., the Jyotish how Vedic Astrology as knowledge covering various aspects of the impact of Devas on everything in the world, is a way to stay out of any situation. And people engaged in Jyotish are called Grahamitras ("friends", "friends of Graha Gods").

The Shastras say that any business or enterprise begun during active Aswini Nakshatra will bring early good results.
