  1. The Sacred 'Magic' of Jyotish


    Jyotish differs from Western Astrology with its ‘sidereal’ astronomical positioning of planets versus the latter’s ‘tropical’ arbitrary positioning and the beginning of this Course provides for an obligatory understanding of this required of any individual calling themself an Astrologer in my opinion. But the difference runs deeper than planetary positioning as Jyotish has sacred symbolism at its cosmic roots that reflects the Divine’s intention for Universal harmony of all existence. The union of feminine and masculine polarities richly described through the stirring experiences of sages and deities (who can also be represented by astrological grahas (planets)) is weaved allegorically into the drama of traditional Indian lilas (stories). The Indian celebrations of this mythology ring with joy and reverence for the Divine and their yearly timings are strikingly aligned with Jyotish charts, a reflection of how advanced and superior India’s ancient knowledge of astronomy was. One is extremely fortunate to listen to such educated and passionate speakers of this elusive subject in the Western world and this Course will inspire you to marvel even more at the deep wisdom embedded in Jyotish.

  2. Another Great Course


    The cross cultural connections on astronomy was helpful. Still studying.Inspiring lessons.

  3. Astrology Stories and Celebrations


    I loved the enthusiasm which Sam and Malini have for this topic. As a beginner I welcome the ‘download’ of the stories and background/historical information. The information feels sensible and easy to grasp. I’m looking forward to the unlimited access for review and putting action into my astrological path.

    Wonderful! If you want to connect with the Vedic view of the cosmos and astrology, this course will help you connect the dots. I particularly enjoyed Sam and Malini’s obvious knowledge, enthusiasm and mostly heart in conducting this class. Very inspiring.

  5. The real meaning behind the stories


    Understanding enriches our personal practices. Malini-we need to hear more! Thank you.

  6. Deeper Understanding of Indian culture through Astrology behind their Celebrations


    I found it to be a wonderful course that broadened my understanding of the Indian culture that I was wanting to know. I have not had the experience of being immersed in it through being involved in Ashrams as some students have. This course explains the astrology and astronomy behind the Indian Stories and Celebrations which is important for serious students of Vedic Astrology to understand. Sadasiva and Dr. Malini bounce off each other in a really enjoyable way and it was personally great to understand the devotion elicited within oneself by performing abisheka on the Shiva Lingham. The practice of divine love and devotion is a higher expression of the Venus energy within us and now I understand what’s going on with the performance of this ritual. I’m not one for performing mindless ritual and can be quite rebellious with that – I want to know the why. I personally feel really drawn to Lord Shiva and this understanding means so much to me. I’m sure you will get something special to you as well, as this course content was very rich and I really appreciate that Dr. Malini and Sadasiva brought this to us.

    This course is amazing. It is the course I have been wanting for a very long time. Thank God for Sam Geppi. His courses are so succinct and clarifying of what is a very dense subject matter. I will watch this again and again I am sure. I will listen and study the manual. Thank you very much Malania. What an absolute blessing. Om namah Shivaya
