Astrology & Astro-Gemology The philosopher Cornelius Agrippa has described in Three Books of Occult Philosophy the basic preparation of astrological rings as follows: “When any star (planet) ascends fortunately we must take a stone and herb that is under that star, and in it fasten the stone, putting the herb or root under it, not omitting the inscriptions of images, names & characters, as also the proper suffumigations” Astrology & the Fourfold Yoga ( The Science of Cosmic Union ) The Fourfold Yoga has been prescribed for Cosmic Union in Oriental Philosophies. They are 1. Union via Action ( Karma Yoga ) 2. Union via Psychic Control ( Raja Yoga ) 3. Union via Universal Love ( Bhakthi Yoga ) 4. Union via Wisdom ( Jnana Yoga ) Union via Action is for the person of active temparament. Union via Psychic Contro is for the person of adventurous temparament Union via Universal Love is for the person of emotional temparament. Union via Wisdom is for the person of intellectual temparament. These four paths are not different from one another. They are all part of the Fourfold Yoga. Certain qualities are to be inculcated in the seeker if he is to achieve the Ultimate Goal. Prajna has been defined as the discriminative intellect, the intellect which discriminates between the Real & the Unreal, the intellect which discriminates between Being and Non-Being. This quality should be incorporated by the Intellectual Man if he is to progress in the path of Jnana Yoga. Love is defined as the greatest of all the positive qualities of man. This quality is to be incorporated by the Emotional Man if he is to progress in the field of Bhakthi Yoga. Control of Mind or Psychic Control through Raja Yoga should be incorporated by the Adventurous Man if he is to progress in the field of Raja Yoga. Selfless Service should be incorporated by the Active Man if he is to progress in the field of Karma Yoga. In other words, since the Fourfold Yoga has been prescribed for mankind , all these four great qualities – Selfless service, love, psychic control & the discriminative intellect should be incorporated by the spiritual aspirant to develop in the field of Yoga. Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra ) Tantra aims at centrallisation of the Self and the Self is worshipped through geometrical patterns called Yantras. Astrology & Quantum ( Holistic ) Medicine Beginning with a Platonic quotation ( ” The treatment of the parts should not be attempted without treatment of the entirety”), Ralf Damwerth writes that Holistic Medicine emphasises Prevention. ” To prevent disease is an important matter in Holistic Medicine. It advocates healthy food & good diet, physical exercises and, in general, a natural & ecological life-style. Concerning prevention of disease, we can learn a lot from Asian cultures. Hatha Yoga, for example, is a brilliant system of maintaining the body & detecting any dysfunctions very early.” Books as Representatives of Eternal Wisdom Sir Philip Sydney writes in ” An Apologia for Poetry ” that the great seers and mystics of yore hid Great Secrets in symbolic stories. ( ” which of purpose were written darkly, lest by profane wits it might be abused”). Aurobindo in the Secret of the Veda writes that ” this Wisdom is unfit and dangerous to the ordinary human mind and liable to perversion and loss of virtue, if revealed to vulgar and unpurified spirits”. Hence the Seers hid the Mysteries in symbolic stories like the Iliad and the Odyssey, the Ramayana & the Mahabharata, books which deal with the Inner War in Man ! The Hidden Foe ( Ego) lodged in the human breast Man must overcome or miss his higher fate This is the inner war without escape.

Each number has a vibration which corresponds to the nine revolving heavens. More quality information about Astro-Numerology and a free Astro- Numerological Report can be had from Astrology & Gemology Flawless gems are auspicious and flawed gems are a source of misfortune. Richard Shaw Brown, Jr ( writes that the Vedic texts which state that pure flawless gems have auspicious powers ( Garuda Purana, Agni Purana) are correct. ” After 25 years of researching and experimenting with gemstones, it is our carefully considered opinion that the Vedic texts are correct. Flawed gems are simply a source of misfortune, not to mention their being ugly ! Think about it ! How many people are prepared to tolerate defects in their clothing, or any other personal items they possess?. Even a single scratch on a nice automobile is an eyesore, so why do people tolerate flawed gems? ” Howard Beckman ( ) writes that different Chakras absorb different cosmic colors and nourish particular glands in the body. Diseases can be cured by using appropriate gems. More information about Planetary Gemology & a FREE Gem Prescription Report can be had from Astrology, Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda Regulation of Food, Sleep and Exercise ” Food is medicine; Medicine is food ” said Hippocrates. “Food is Brahman. Food was verily born before all creatures: therefore it is called the medicine for all” declares the Upanishads. By stating that food is the root cause of all ills & illnesses Vedanta have formulated one of the foundational principles of holistic health. At least half the ailments of man can be traced directly or indirectly to the problems of food. Regulation of food is not easy, because it is an addiction like alcohol. Problems like obesity, higher cholesterol level & irritable bowel syndrome crop up if food is not controlled. By controlling food, the whole body comes under control. “When taste is conquered everything is conquered ” averrs Vedanta. What really matters is not how much we eat but how much of what we eat is transformed into bioenergy & the building materials of life. Sir William Osler pointed out many years ago ” Only a small percentage of what we eat nourishes us; the balance goes to waste and loss of energy”. In holistic health, food should be revered & a proper attitude towards food should be developed. ” Be thankful for all food, for food is Brahman ” said Vivekananda. Six hours have been prescribed for all even though requirement of sleep varies from person to person Research studies have indicated that even moderate levels of exercise bolster the immune system. No amount of sleep is sufficient for unwinding the mind for it is always in a tense state under the stressful conditions of modern life. Antidotes to stress include yogic techniques like Meditation, prayer, cultivation of the Witness attitude & practice of absolute self-surrender to the Divine, which enable us to avoid a lot of unnecessary stress. Doing nothing or simply lying down is not relaxation. The muscles when stretched bring in relaxation as it frees them from the tense condition. Some of the yogic Asanas are highly effective because they can relax the muscles. There will be focal point in the body which reflects the mental tension which one finds oneself in. That focal point of mental tension should be identified and you can choose that type of yogic exercise which will relax the muscles & tendons of the specific focal point of tension in you. A good site where you can get quality information about Holistic Medicine is Regulation of Breath “Breathlessness is deathlessness ” averrs Yoga. Regulation of breath gives tremendous relaxation.Pranayama, without the help of a bona fide Master, can lead to serious complications. What is needed is the practice of breathing deeply ( as deeply as possible ) through both the nostrils & then slowly breathing out ( without breath retention ). This kind of regulated deep breathing can be done at any time, even in your office. Psychosomatic pain can be alleviated by these simple yogic techniques more effectively than allopathic pills or tablets. Here we employ the internal pharmacy of Skill power in lieu of the external pharmacy of Pill Power! Vedic Holistic Medicine ( Ayurveda) gives priority to the Whole and not to the parts, contrary to chemotherapy which treats the parts only. More info about Ayurveda can be had from Astrology & Yoga All knowledge is threefold (” Thraigunya Vishaya Veda “). In Freudian Psycho-analysis we have three impulses, Id, Ego and Supergo. The Vedantic Satwa, Rajas and Thamas correspond to these impulses. The mind is always gripped by these three impulses. Sometimes we are Rajasic ( worldly ) and go after wealth. When intense anger and other negative emotions grip us, we are Thamasic. When divine qualities like Love and Peace influence us, we are Satwic ( divine ). The Ego with its ten heads ( symbolised as the ten-headed Ravana ) is the major block in attaining Self_Actualisation. The ten heads of the Ego are Lust,Anger,Pride, Avarice, Sloth, Covetousness, Attachment, Mind, Intellect, Conceit & Egoistic Mentality. Only when the ten heads of the Ego are removed can we hope to get Self-Realisation. ( Symbolically only when the Ravana in us is destroyed ). When we do our yoga, we will be assailed by three type of Ego. Rajasic ( wordly ), Thamasic ( bestial ) and Satwic ( noble ). In order to overcome the three types of Ego, we are given certain commandments. ” Ma the Sanghostha karmani ” – (Let there be not in you any attachment to inaction. ) This commandment is given so that we can overcome the Thamasic ( bestial ) ego. ” Ma Karma Phala Heturbhoo ” – (“Dont expect any reward”) This commandment is given to protect us from the Rajasic ( wordly ) ego, which always expects rewards for work done. “Ubhe Sukruta Dushkrute ” ( “Be beyond good and evil ” ) This commandment is given to us to overcome the Satwic Ego, for one should not hang on to Punya ( divine merit ). In other words, during the process of Yoga, we will be assailed by all sorts of negative thoughts. Our aim is to identify with the Source of all thought, the Self. We will find, as we progress on the path of yoga, that these negative thoughts leave us slowly and steadily. Conquering our negative aspect is not easy. The negative elements in man are the true villains. Alone, powerful & cruel are the dark and dreadful forces that profit from the reign of Night and Ignorance and they dont want any change in the body. We have to annihilate them one by one. In tragic life, God wot No villains need be, passions spin the plot We are betrayed by what is false within ! The entire Vedic wisdom is contained in one word ” Transcend “. Transcend both pain & sorrow, transcend the triune attributes of Nature. Transcend negativity !. More information about Transcendental Philosophy & Yoga can be had from Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra ) Tantra focusses on the Chit-Shakti, the Consciousness-Force latent in the Universe. The entire Universe is the play and display of this Cosmic Force and this Force is latent in human beings as the Kundalini. She rises from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra during Meditation. Tantra is a similar discipline like Yoga and is very important from the Divine perspective. More quality information about Tantra & Yantras can be had from Books as the source of knowledge Dante’s Divina Commedia or Goethe’s Faust were never the product of the Rational Mind. They were the products of the Intuitive Mind. Books can instruct, they can teach & they can elevate man from
