On this special weekend I am going to go over the full practice of Vedic astrology, from the most primordial origins to the most granular practices and system, to reading charts, studying astrology and even teaching astrology.

Almost anything you can imagine about Vedic astrology will be covered and discussed.

I have 32 general subjects / categories that I plan to spend 15 minutes each discussing.

I am going to take you through the entire system, so you understand what, why and how Vedic astrology works.

Seeing it all laid out conceptually this way will shift your perspective about Vedic astrology. You will see how it works, what it is revealing and who you are in this lifetime.

How to organize the different parts of the practice is one of the most challenging parts of astrology.

All of this will be clarified and deepened.

This class is great for beginners or advanced students who want to understand the bigger picture.

    So much relevant informations explaind with such ease! Thank you Sam for another great course!

  2. Awesome Introduction to Vedic Astrology


    I learnt a lot about various aspects of Vedic Astrology. Some of the concepts were quite heavy like Shadbala, Vimshopaka and Tajika concepts but it was great that you included all of it togive an idea of what it entails. Though I have done my own study and “snacking” on You tube videos as well, this was an eye opening introduction. I couldn’t attend it live though I attended a little bit on Saturday ( reason being I am in India) and due to time difference couldn’t attend it all through. I just completed watching all of the recording. Thank you very much !!

  3. Excellent introductory Course.


    I am hooked on Vedic Astrology and I was pretty much a total beginner.
    This is DUE to this class!
    I appreciate his honesty, integrity, and his enthusiasm.
    The manual is wonderful and feels like the perfect stepping stone to learning.

  4. Tons of content! Great class! Sam is a great teacher

  5. Vedic Astrology - From A to Z - Live weekend Course

  6. The best A to Z Live weekend course


    Great weekend course given by our teacher, SAM. I thoroughly enjoyed the overview of the content that any upcoming astrologer need to have knowledge of. Every minute was thoroughly utilized by SAM to cover the content. He did a great job of explaining each of the topics. Thank you SAM for taking your time to help us students given your so very busy schedule. Thank you agan.

  7. Vedic Astrology A to Z


    An excellent, comprehensive and clearly explained course. Sam was very generous with his time, patience, quality of the manual we received and followed up a week later with an engaging Q&A. I would highly recommend this course. Thanks Sam.

  8. My first Vedic Astrology Course didn't disappoint.


    Sam gave us concise and comprehensive historical and present day overview of this interesting subject matter. As a yogi and Sanskrit student, this A to Z course helped me to go deeper in my personal understanding of this vast science .

  9. 5

    Great review class, even if you’re already certified. The manual is a master outline for all the material.

  10. Great foundational course!


    I always learn best from teachers who can lay out the over arching themes and history of a subject and this course is a really great big picture overview of a very complicated system. It is exactly what I needed!

  11. Thank you for the comprehensive manual and the great talk about cosmic time❤️


    This is the course I have been looking for…. one that shows the big picture of Jyotish! Thank you for all the work you put into it.

  12. Excellent


    Having already completed the level 1 certification course, this not only helped to review the concepts I’ve already learned in-depth with new and relevant perspectives. this course gives you the BIG picture of all that is possible and how the whole system works. The manual itself that comes with it is a wealth of information. Highly recommend!

  13. This is an excellent course


    Very easy to follow and interesting. Great for a beginner, am looking forward to further studies.

  14. incredibly valuable!


    whether you’re a beginner or long-time student of jyotish, you’ll get a comprehensive overview or review of how it all works. there are always new insights to be gained, a reminder of how deep & rich this material is. … 🙏

  15. Excellent overview with lots of details to study


    The class handout alone is a wonderful reference and study guide. The class sessions are great explanations of the topics.

  16. Great overview


    Thanks for putting all the various concepts found in Vedic Astrology into a concise and digestible format.

  17. Vedic Astrology A=Z


    A great overview, logically scaffolded, that can work as an introduction for the beginner or as a good review for someone with more knowledge. Highly recommend!

  18. 5

    This is a great introductory course to introduce you to foundational concepts of Vedic astrology.

  19. Thank You for serving me.

  20. Take simple context from big subject in structure way with a lot of information


    It’s sure that Sam is a great teacher who knows how to present big subject from depth on simple and structure way. I m happy that I took this course to get more information and clearly picture about Vedic astrology. Thanks a lot.

  21. A to Z Astrology Review


    This was a great review of all the different structures of Vedic Astrology and the context with which they’re intended to be used. Thank you Sam for another great course to study!

  22. Loved it!


    This weekend course gave me the confidence and bandwidth to feel it is possible to finally dive deeper into the ancient sciences of Vedic Astrology! I’ve always wanted to have a digestible course/sneak peak by touching on each major area. It was a well rounded course, leaving me wanting more. Thank you, Sam!

  23. A to Z and so much more


    i thought i had an understanding of the basics before i took this course. Instead, i was awakened to how much more there really is to learn.
    Almost all of day 2 were brand new concepts to me. But Sam’s way of teaching broke down even the most complicated of topics into pieces that could be comprehended.
    I’m not an expert, but I am far more knowledgeable that before i took this class.

  24. Viewed as recorded session


    Good course. As a novice, I found this helpful to begin to tie things together.
    I wont be able to read charts yet but its a foundation knowledge to understand how the universe works.

  25. Vedic Astrology from A-Z


    Great introduction and inspires thirst for deeper understanding.

    Susan Morgan

  26. Thorough and Helpful


    This class really does cover everything from A-Z, at least in overview form; it’s pretty amazing. I think newer students can get a lot out of it as an introduction and overview of everything that is involved in Vedic Astrology, but even older students will probably learn new things and it serves as a helpful review. For me it was very helpful as a review and in teaching me the basics about some things I had heard about but did not understand, so I could pursue them more in depth later. Thanks Sam!
