The Nakshatras, also called lunar mansions or asterisms, constitute a 27-fold division of the zodiac based upon the movement of the Moon. The Nakshatras are one of the prime factors of Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) for interpretating natal charts and daily astrological changes.
Understanding the Nakshatras is important for any deeper applications of Vedic astrology. Yet few people today, particularly those trained in sign-based astrology, understand the Nakshatras or their symbolism, which is unique in many ways.
In this special four-hour video course, we will examine the Nakshatras starting from their ancient Vedic roots, exploring their qualities, energies, spiritual powers and deities, including much material not available in existing texts. It will also correlate the meanings of the Nakshatras with the constellations and fixed stars.
This course is based upon original research by Dr. David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri), whose Vedic studies are highly honored in India, and known worldwide where he has students in numerous countries.
The course will share Vedic secrets of the Nakshatras that Dr. Frawley has uncovered in older Vedic texts from his study of the original Sanskrit over the last fifty years. The course begins with an extensive introduction about the role of the Nakshatras overall and then addresses the individual Nakshatras one by one. The course is indepth and many sided in its presentation.
For all those who wish to better understand the Nakshatras and use them in their astrological interpretations, this course is an invaluable resource for years to come. This knowledge will also aid the student in understanding the cosmic secrets of Yoga and the Vedic vision of the conscious universe.
