Introduction of Krishnamurti Padhati astrology - a new path of jyotish
Introduction of Krishnamurti Padhati astrology - a new path of jyotish

According to Hindu mythology, lord Brahma is the creator of whole universe. According to ancient Indian literature, following eighteen (18) astrologers are the main promoters of Vedic Jyotish (Vedic Astrology).

It is a proverbial clause that at first, Lord Brahma taught his son Maharshi Narad about astrology. Maharshi Narad then transmitted his learning to Rishi Garg. Cyclically, Rishi Garg taught Rishi Parashar. This is the way how Vedic astrology is transmitted through teacher-student relationship from ancient time. The golden period of Vedic astrology is considered during the time of Rishi Parashar. According to Indian history, this period was around 3,200 BC. In India, astrology is studied in different ways and different books show different rules for prediction.

Similarly, in western countries, there were several studies and researches in astrology. With keeping the faith in both the systems i.e. western and Vedic astrology, professor K. S. Krishnamurti tried for the first time to build a bridge between the two systems. His newly invented system is quite timely and prediction power will be more accurate. This system is known as Krishnamurti Padhati or KP System.

Professor K. S. Krishnamurti considered Sideral Zodiac, Constellations of Moon, Parasari Vimsottari, Dasa System, Graha Dristi from Vedic astrology while on the other hand, he used Placidious House Division system, Aspect & Ruling Planets from western astrology. Combining these two astrological systems, he wanted to establish a bridge between them. In my webinar, I will mainly focus on the introductory part of KP System.

Sam Geppi - Vedic Astrology: Personal and Spiritual Time
Sam Geppi - Vedic Astrology: Personal and Spiritual Time

Vedic astrology has two distinct methods of timekeeping: those which originated in the Vedas, and the more familiar ones, used in horoscopic/personal astrology. Both are valuable and serve distinct functions when selecting auspicious times. Typically these two distinct systems are  muddled together. In this class both methods will be explored and contrasted with many case studies to illustrate. Implicit in this discussion are tropical/sidereal zodiac, astrology in religious ceremonies, personal timekeeping (horoscopic/earth-centric) and spiritual (Vedic/celestial) timekeeping.
