Warm welcome to AstrologerPanditJi.com. This website was created years back with the intention to create awareness regarding various concepts; good and bad yogas; and other phenomena covered under Vedic Astrology. Through this journey, it has been my constant effort to keep writing more and more about various aspects of Vedic astrology. Be it good concepts like Hamsa Yoga, Gaj Kesari Yoga and Budh Aditya Yoga; or be it about bad ones like Kaal Sarp Yog, Pitra Dosh and Sade Sati of Saturn; more and more content has been created about them, so that the readers may understand these topics in a better manner.
No matter how good, each type of science needs continuous research so that it may be kept updated according to the demands of the time. Vedic astrology is no exception and continuous work of research is required to keep it fit and well, due to many reasons. Firstly, some very important concepts of Vedic astrology may have lost their true definitions during the times when India was invaded repeatedly by foreign intruders; and many valuable scriptures were destroyed on purpose. The scholars of those times tried to recreate such scriptures and despite their best efforts, some of them may not have been restored to their original forms. It means when such scholars tried to recreate such scriptures, the definitions or interpretations for some phenomena might have deviated from their original sense. Hence there may be a difference between what was originally written and what we are reading today.
Secondly, with the passage of time and with circumstances; the interpretation of good and bad changes since good and bad primarily depends on the need of the situation. For instance, back in old times; the planetary yogas causing people to go abroad for various purposes were considered bad; since home and homeland were assigned great values; and means of communication were not good. Hence it is easy to understand that if someone is going away from family and motherland, in order to earn bread and butter; or in order to make more money; such person is considered unlucky. Therefore, the yogas causing people to leave their homelands were considered malefic.
However in today’s world; one of the most asked questions is, “PanditJi, will I go abroad and settle there permanently?” People ask this question with so much hope and interest that it naturally seems like a good thing; which it is for many people; given the circumstances of today; when the entire world has become a global village. It means now you can settle abroad; live a better life and at the same time; you can constantly be in touch with your dear ones through various media of communication. Even if you wish to come back to them; it’s a matter of days or even hours. Hence going abroad is now seen as a good thing by many people; and accordingly, the planets or yogas causing this result have now become good ones.
This theory can be validated with the help of a number of other examples but I guess, the point has been made. Since the definition of good and bad keeps changing with time and circumstances; like the definitions of many other things lying at opposite ends of the spectrum, continuous research is needed. It is the research which helps us keep faiths like Vedic astrology up to date as well as in their best possible forms. For instance, a few decades back; no one asked questions about engaging in professions related to computers, information and technology, internet, web, wireless communication and many other things; since none of these existed back then. Now that more and more of these spheres have appeared, Vedic astrology needs to be updated so that an astrologer may answer questions related to these spheres.
Since these spheres were not there for centuries, the need to look into them through astrology did not arise. Hence Vedic scriptures may not have mentioned them during those times. However as these spheres have come to the scene in recent times and they have become major players; the need to assign various planets or planetary attributes to these fields arises. It means that you can’t tell by reading old scriptures whether a person may become a pilot, a software engineer, the owner of a social networking website or any other such professional; since these professions didn’t exist back then. Now that they have started existing, we need to find proper associations of these spheres with various planets and planetary attributes, through research. It has been happening since the beginning of time, it is happening now and it will keep happening till the end of the time.
Change is the essential principal of nature and no one can change this principal. Hence we need to accept it and keep ourselves updated in every sphere of life so that we may survive through, as well as benefit from the changing times. This is why research is needed in every field; and Vedic astrology is no exception. The term research simply means a process through which we preserve what is old and relevant; we get rid of what is old and irrelevant; and we add what is new and relevant. That is what the job of a researcher is, in any field; and that is what I try to do here at AstrologerPanditJi.com.
I keep researching more and more on various phenomena of Vedic astrology, I try to update some concepts when I find they may have been misinterpreted or they may have lost their original sense of good and bad in these times; and I try to add new and relevant concepts as well as information to keep our Vedic inheritance updated and free from impurities. This journey started many years back and so far, I have enjoyed it more with every passing day, hour and second.
I wish more and more people update themselves about the current and relevant versions of various concepts of Vedic astrology, through AstrologerPanditJi.com as well as through other good websites which are engaging in similar effort. Wish you all the luck for the journey ahead, in each and every sphere of your life. Remember, you will always reach as long as you are walking. So don’t you stop or quit and keep walking.
Lord Shiva Bless You
