cosmic astrology seminar

We would like to inform you that the next retreat with Swami Shankarananda Giri is going to take place on 1st to 10th March 2018 at Kriya Yoga Ashram, Rishikesh.

We are sure that the experience of taking part in this seminar will be again enriching, as Swamiji will be giving teachings on Cosmic Astrology, underlining the direct connections with Kriya Yoga practice and the sacred texts of the Vedic tradition. He will reveal the mysteries of tithis (the cycles of the Sun and Moon in the human body), give explanations about the calculation of the Hindu festivals and many other topics that will interest all of us. 

The holy science of Cosmic Astrology (BrahmandaJyotis in Sanskrit) was revived by Sri Yukteswarjee, after being long time lost due to the effects of dvaparayuga, when people engrossed themselves in maya and many lost the divine knowledge and awareness. 

From Sri Yukteswarjee it was later transmitted to Swami Narayan Giri (Prabhujee) who in turn handed it over to Swami Shankarananda Giri.
Due to his own experiences, deep knowledge of scriptures and highly spiritual advancement into Kriya Yoga, Swamiji enhanced even more the sacred Cosmic Astrology, developing many diagrams and formulas to give a better understanding to all spiritual seekers and to the public at large.
