Vedic Astrology is an ancient science that is both universal and timeless. This vast body of knowledge encompasses all earthly phenomena past, present and future. It is based on the laws of nature which express the unity within the diversity of life and support the idea of an underlying intelligence governing all things with great precision and compassion. It seeks to impart to mankind a tool with which to understand and live in greater harmony with nature, to maximize opportunities for growth and minimize suffering. It is the study of the subtle energies emanating from the sky upon people, plants, animals and the Earth itself. These energies influence the human body and mind on all levels.
Dr Frawley has written numerous books on Astrology, Ayurveda, Yoga, Mantra and Meditation all of which are significantly relevant to those wanting to learn and practice these ancient Vedic sciences. His current volume "Ayurvedic Astrology" shows how these two sciences of life and light fit together and can be used in harmony to provide a greater understanding and deeper application of each. The book addresses both the predictive and treatment sides of both systems with clarity and precision.
Ayurvedic Medicine represents the healing branch of the yogic science, while Vedic astrology provides its understanding of time and karma. Ayurvedic Astrology teaches the interface of these two extraordinary systems in the Vedic astrology of healing. The book explains how the different mind-body and planetary types of the two systems interrelate. It examines disease factors from an astrological perspective and goes into depth into astrological remedial measures, particularly gem therapy. It also contains many notable example charts.
The author demonstrates great skill in presenting the treatment methods and remedial measures of ancient India for their healing benefits to the modern world. Ayurvedic Astrology: Self-Healing through the Stars is destined to become a classic text in the field.-Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D., President, American College of Vedic Astrology
This is probably the first book available that jointly examines both Ayurveda and Vedic astrology in detail for the modern reader. Even in the traditional literature on these subjects, there are few works that cross-reference both so directly and completely. It is likely to be the standard work in the field for serious students for years to come. - Chakrapani Ullal, World-Renowned Vedic Astrologer
Vamadeva Shastri in his latest book, "Ayurvedic Astrology," unlocks ancient astrological understandings of the human body's inherent weaknesses based on positions of the planets and stars at birth. In so doing, he guides us to avert sickness by applying detailed traditional Vedic remedial measures and then helps us understand the karma behind illnesses when they do manifest. Here, for the first time in a single book, two of India's remarkable gifts to mankind-Vedic knowledge of healing and Jyotish-are interwoven in a tapestry of wellness, providing invaluable tools for professional astrologers, ayurvedic practitioners and novices of both sciences.-Acharya Ceyonswami, Hinduism Today
