Jyothisah or Light
No other science is more interesting, useful, and instructive contributing to the material and moral advancement of mankind than that of Indian Astrology. The science is based on foretelling the future events in the lives of individuals or nations that rely on the movements of the planets, known in Sanskrit as Jyotisha or Light. It interprets the future of a man as it conceives it moulded by birth or previous Karma as indicated by the planetary positions present at the time of the persons birth.
It has 3 branches: Samhita, Hora, and Siddhanta. Siddhantas devote themselves to the study of celestial bodies, Samhitas focus on earth quakes, volcanos, floods, weather conditions, rainfall, economic conditions and mundane astrology. Hora seeks to predict the timing of various events in everyday life.
Nadi astrology or Nadi Shastra gives pictures the patterns of life and destiny of individuals born at 12, 24, and 48-second intervals written on palm leaves by ancient sages. Only a few experts are able to read and understand Nadi, the predictions and results of which are amazingly accurate.
