Questions and Answers

Are you wondering what are the best Vedic astrology books to read? Then visit our recommended reading list for serious students of astrology.

In this section I answer questions related to Vedic Astrology. You can ask any question and if I think the question is suitable and have time I will answer it. Please refrain from asking about your own horoscope, such questions will not be answered.

1: How important is exact determination of auspicious muhurtas for performance of Vedic samskaras?

2: There are two Yogas: Kala sarpa and Kala amrita. Can you tell me a little about them, especially Kala amrita Yoga. I read that they are very inauspicious. What can one do against it? On what must one pay attention while upbringing, if a child has one of these Yogas in horoscope?

3: Is Numerology as practiced today useful? A candid appraisal of the subject.

4: I was wondering whether you could clarify whether one should use True or Mean Rahu?

5: What is the actual time we should take as the "Time of Birth?"

6: A reseacher asked: "Why [in Vedic culture] do women wear rings on the left hand and men on the right?"

While we do offer services on this site it is primarily educational. Any money that we make from our services go toward continued study and publishing of well-researched articles that set a high standard in the jyotish community. As a brahmana my primary vocation is to study and share my knowledge with others. In traditional Vedic culture the general public and especially those who benefit directly from that knowledge help to support the teacher so that he can spend more time in deep study and continue the cycle. If your knowledge has been expanded and you are inspired by the Lord in your heart please donate an amount that you are comfortable giving.
