Atrology
« on: February 11, 2014, 02:11:45 PM »
Sai Ram
Master's way from what He writes had always been to 'mana karmanu batti vachche danni orchukuntu saduguruvu meeda vishwasam unchi manchi samskaaraalu aalvarachukuntuu undadam, parayana naama japam cheyadam uttamam'. I am not sure if I am right but I 'think' the real purpose of the astrology is to guide people showing them which path to take. For example, a person wants to venture into business investing all his money. But may be as per his 'Graha dasa' etc., business never suits him. So is it wrong if he seeks a help of astrologer to see if this is right time for him, if the time is favorable. If the 'real' astrologist is found and he suggests him wait for a while, or do never get greedy and get into business as it may never suit him, then he would be like saving him and his family right
I never advocate stopping our attempts and rely on it. But is it wrong to see if the time suits us before taking a bigger decision like, marriage, getting into business, buying car. Perhaps if there is some bigger danger is about befall the least astrology   could do is to warn him or her to be prepared.
So my question is what Master says about it and how correct it is to consult one. I am sure some of the married people here would definitely have looked for compatibility etc..,
My question is about normal people like me not about the people who achieved a level in their sadhana

Jai Sai Master!

Ajay, yes there is an element of Astrology in every 'tradition'. Thats a whole another discussion why christianity does not seem to have it.

Dileepgaru,
Being able to go to an astrologer, and that too a correct one, and then him getting the correct inference, and then you being able to implement it, etc. are all based on Karma if one sees from that perspective. Therefore, it is not really that an astrologer can help you in selecting a right path. For instance, there are so many thing that we know as 'right things', but we do not do it. Exercise, healthy eating, etc., and many more such facts are there which we know already as good, but how many of us follow them or design our lives so that we can follow such principles and facts? Also, how far will we/ can we trust the astrologer? And how is the life of astrologer himself? Is every astrologer successful in everything in their life? They check for muhurtas for their own sons and daughters, you think they all are leading happy lives?
So, I would not rely too much on astrology nor its predictions. However, I have tremendous respect over that science, because by the science of Astrology itself, predictive astrology never accurately works, especially for most people who are not leading a principled life. One can predict the course of a straight arrow, but not one of a crooked arrow, irrespective of the talents of the bowman.

I am reluctant to write more here on this topic myself because I know that much of it is my opinion rather than my understanding, but i can suggest you to listen to Master E.K.'s speeches on astrology for clarity on this matter. He vehemently condemns the popular 'predictive' astrology but gives a beautiful synthesis of these things. He very clearly states that for those who are following a Sadguru, or in the presence of a Sadguru, astrology is neither necessary nor will it work.  He even condemns certain people from consulting any astrology for predictive reasons since it might obstruct their devotion towards the Lord.

As far as I understand, astrology is a way to understand the universe and helps to form the right attitude towards it. Using such for mundane things, in my honest opinion, is not only useless, but also harmful.

Jai Sai Master!!

jai sai master


babugaru : you mean to say? if a person do not have any knowledge of astrology and he thinks that  " as i dont know about the astrology ,but i trust
 
                   my favourite god and hardwork that will do for me?" and that person keeps this kind thinking and goes on in his life for his requirements
                   and (here iam not saying that astrology should not be respected or trusted ) iam just trying to decode your post .

Dileep garu, "Ananthaputruni Anantha vaibhavam" is a good read which will answer your question.Its book regarding life story of Master EK(if i were to draw a parallel like Bhagavan Sri Bharadwaja).

Jai SaiMaster
గురుబోధయొక్క సారం గ్రహించి దాని ప్రకారం మన యోచనను, పనులను సంస్కరించుకొన్నపుడే మనం నిజంగా గురువును ఆశ్రయించినట్లు. అలాగాకుంటే అది మిథ్యాభక్తే.
Whatever we practice,becomes the swabhAvA.If control is practiced persistently that will become the swabhAvA.

Jai Sai Master Babugaru,

Could you please shed some light on why the astrolgy can be dangerous as you were mentioning in the last paragraph of your explanation? Because there are many people who suggest me to go to astrologer for various problems but I cann't always explain to them in detail why Mastergaru suggested not to go to Predictive astrologer and for "Prasna". Even though I was able to avoid the pressure to go to an astrologer, I always wanted to explain why it's not the right thing for others who suggest me to do that. Simple words like "my guru Mastergaru told it's dangerous" are not enough to explain because many people around me don't know about Mastergaru.

Jai Sai Master,
Jagadeesh

Jai Sai Master !

Drbatana,

Have you read Master E.K. books on Astrology? That book will solve many of the points that we have regarding 'predictive' astrology.

Jai Sai Master!
