Spiritual benefits of Jyotisha
In the end, the best reason to
study Jyotisha is to obtain a huge spiritual release. This "release" occurs when

Mental benefits of Jyotisha
The vidya of Jyotisha helps calms the mind.
Through awareness of the repeating patterns in the stars and their reflected
actions in human life on Earth, one comes to realize that the flow of life's experiences
is largely pre-mapped. (Although it can certainly be redirected through conscious
This type of mental calm is not paralysis. It
is not wildly exhilarating or superstitiously fearful. It is not the fanatic
conviction of blind faith, nor a childlike one-love trust, nor a "deer in
the headlights" lockdown caused by fear of the unknown.
Rather, the view of divine timingwhich can be seen through Jyotisha can create a deeply satisfying experience of
completeness, rooted in total union with divine intent. It is conscious,
positive, and "fortunate".
Emotional benefits of Jyotisha
The Jyotisha viewpoint can provide a calm
appreciation of one's own role in creating reality through one's own pattern of
repeating actions and subconscious expectations.
This spiritually grounded view
has served to aid many people in overcoming bitterness, resentment, anger and grief.
Jyotisha exposes the fallacy of victim mind by demonstrating that nothing could
ever happen "to" a person.
The Jyotisha divination can be a trigger

Seeing the reality of an accurate self-image, the native stops banging his head
against a brick wall.
One stops accepting criticism for being inadequate, for
not fulfilling The destiny of others. Knowing oneself a bit better, one
chooses an approach to life that is grounded in realistic expectations.
Closing the gap between expectation and

"gap" between expectation and reality.
The gap itself is created by
parents, teachers, and others lacking wisdom of the native 's true self, who have
filled the native 's heart and soul full of unreasonable and indeed
"foreign" beliefs and goals.
These foreign, inappropriate self-images do
appropriately belong to the parents, teachers, and influential icons such as
celebrities and other role models. Unfortunately the native , not knowing who one
is, accepts the psychic invasion of foreign images, and lives unhappily ever
after, trying to be someone that one is not.
Psychic benefits of Jyotisha:
Realism and Stronger Boundaries
For a normal person, trying to live
a celebrity's life -- to be fabulously wealthy, stunningly beautiful,
brilliantly intelligent, magnificently powerful -- is an exercise in
self-hating futility. Yet, without knowledge of who one really is, the
modern citizen falls victim to a lifetime of supposed
On a smaller scale, the child who
is psychically enslaved to one's parents' unfulfilled desires - forced
to pursue an unsuitable profession, or marry an unsuitable spouse - is
also a victim of poor boundaries caused by lack of self-knowledge. The
world is roamed by billions of the walking psychically wounded. They
live in a state of exhaustion: frustrated in their quest to be someone
they are not, and wasting a precious opportunity to be who they really

information from the Jyotisha charts, the native can take positive
steps toward self-realization. Often the first step is to redirect q
huge amount of psychic energy. This creative energy was previously
deployed into shoring up the self-esteem against the
energy of social criticism for failure.
Once an accurate picture
of the self path is available, this newly released energy can be
transformed into fuel for positive moral development, based on trust
in partnership with the Divine.
Moral benefits of Jyotisha

"the Lord helps them who help themselves" to mean that one bears as
much responsibility for the results of one's actions as one's consciousness can

Thus partnership with the divine is based
*not* on a "clean slate" of any crazy thing being randomly possible,
but on a specific "contract" based on past performance.
Each lifetime has a particular set of
repayment obligations resulting from "loans" - i.e., taking other
people's energy in past lives. The 'taking' is always some form of exploitation
which causes lasting harm. Each lifetime also offers a "credit
account" established through 'giving - i.e., charitable actions performed
in past lives. One accepts the effect of past actions in the total
responsibility for creating a better future.
Reality is co-created.
Limits and Accountability to The Contract
The self-knowing native, making frequent
reference to the character profiles and timelines provided through Jyotisha,
will find moral harmony. One becomes acutely aware of creating one's
future through "contract" decisions of the present.
Wanting to improve
the future contract, one's urge to exploit others quickly disappears. The urge
toward compassionate service naturally increases.
Reflective survey of the privileges
and benefits embedded in the current star patterns of the nativity
lead to the obvious conclusion that crimes of any kind - even minor
ones - are a big mistake. Taking other people's energy results in
From the Jyotisha perspective,
mistreating people is not "wrong". It's stupid.
Jyotishi does not judge immoral actions. However upon deep study
of the astrological nativity, and realizing that one's own thoughts
and actions are right now inevitably and logically creating
one's future, it becomes clear that the smart money is on
responsibility and acceptance. Never blaming other humans; always
relying on the divine.
Knowledge partnered with Divine Intelligence

The Jyotisha nativity provides an excellent map for
self-study and self-improvement, based on a knowledge of Karma and a
trust in God. If bad things are happening, is it possible that I am in
some sense creating them?
Working within present limitations,
partnered with divine intelligence, one seeks positive
methods of increasing one's resources. The most positive method of all
is to ask for help!
Some karmic problems are so severe - one has dug
oneself into such a deep karmic hole - that humbly asking for help is
really the only future-enhancing option.
The Jyotisha chart shows a basic
mechanism of energy flow which, if strengthened through conscious life
practice, builds up the credit account and pays down the debit

This wisdom applies
not only to money and property but also to daily energy exchanges such
as choosing to praise someone (giving energy) or criticize
Gratitude, Neutrality, and Truth
Awareness of the co-created life patterns
seen through divination of Jyotisha can induce calm receptivity to divine
beneficence and indeed a state of gratitude for the opportunity to take birth.
In this way, Jyotisha can itself become a primary spiritual practice.
In fact the spirit has a very precise plan
for what it intends to accomplish in each lifetime, and how, and why. Knowing
the map of this plan - even in broad outlines - allows one to take a neutral,
observer's position while releasing the compulsion to blame and judge others.
By showing the structure of each soul's
earthly plan and purpose, the vidya of Jyotisha offers a powerful spiritual
path toward the final liberation of forgiveness,
and is thus a major yoga for healing pain in the soul.
