Ayurveda and Joytish: An Overview

by Jeffrey Armstrong (Excerpt from Fall issue, 2008)

Ayurveda and Jyotisha are sister sciences, which look at the same reality from their own perspective. Both observe karma or cause and effect, in various states and stages of manifestation. The context for all Vedic science is the “Pancha Maha Bhutas” or “Five Element” world view. What makes this scientific approach so useful is that the five elements can be perceived directly through our unaided senses, without the use of expensive technology.

Jyotish for Ayurvedic Consultations: Some Considerations

by Tamiko Fischer (Excerpt from Fall issue, 2008)

Ayurvedic practitioners in India and in the West have varying levels of experience in the study and practice of Jyotish, and their day to day inclusion of this sister science has many different faces. The Ayurveda practitioner’s application of Jyotish can range anywhere from a brief assessment of the natal chart to a deeper understanding of prakriti (genetic constitution), to a predictive chart reading that includes concrete descriptions of life events to come. He or she might check the birth chart in order to recommend upayas (astrological remedies), the prescription of which may include specific mantras (sacred words), wearing of gemstones, charitable offerings to specific people or animals, homas (Vedic ritual fire sacrifice) and other unique and subtle healing practices. At the very least, the healer might simply consult the Panchanga, or Vedic Almanac, in order to choose a favorable nakshatra and tithi or lunar asterism and lunar day combination to begin administering a course of treatment.
