What is Vedic Astrology?

Vedic astrology is the astrology of past and present India and is based on the teachings of the Vedas. The Vedas in turn, are the earliest known literary records of the Indo-Aryan culture of ancient India, and by some estimations, the oldest books in the human library. In its primordial parts the Vedic corpus consists of the revelations of seers or ṛsis who, through prolonged meditation came to know reality in both its ultimate and finite sense. Accordingly it’s appropriate that the ancient Sanskrit word veda literally means ‘knowledge’.

In the Vedas, the limb of knowledge devoted to astrology is referred to as Jyotiṣa, or ‘science of light’. Vedic astrology’s perennial relevance lies in its capacity to illuminate human destiny, allowing us to know and creatively respond to our karma.

Kavi Karnapura Dasa

Vedic Monk

My interest in astrology started in high school when I stated casually studying ancient Chinese philosophy and astrology. In 2002 my interest shifted to the Vedic sciences when I came in contact with Gaudiya Vaishnavaism. I ended up studying Sanskrit and Gaudiya theology in Govardhana India for 3 years. At present I am based in Stellenbosch, South Africa where I am involved with an ashrama, which conducts meditation retreats and Vedic studies.

I was a little skeptical of how accurate astrology is, but the Vedic astrological report I received from Kavi-Karnapura Dasa was stunningly accurate, both of what has happened in my inner and outer life in the past, as well as of situations in my life at the time of the reading. I felt that much-needed guidance was given, about all areas of my life, as well as for some future periods of my life, and I certainly feel much better equipped to deal with certain things now. The same was true for two other people for whom I asked him to compile readings, as presents.

The relationship compatibility reading I received for the relationship I was in at the time was also amazingly accurate, and offered important and helpful perspectives for what we might encounter.

I would strongly recommend getting a Vedic astrological report for anyone vaguely interested in finding out what kind of influences the stars and planets have on one’s life.

Eye of the Veda astrology will give you an account of your own nature which goes beyond what you would expect. Everything from ideal occupation to what types of time periods to expect in the future!

It is clear that Kavi Karnapura Das has spent a very long time studying the various subtleties of the art of astrology. And the best part is that his advice alwayws comes with the backdrop of spiritual well-being. Being a monk, he provides a reading that considers what is ideal for the soul – not the fortune and romance readings of your average weekly magazine.

If you want to know and balance out the strengths and weaknesses of your body and mind, so you can access the bliss of the soul, then there’s no other place to go.
