This comprehensive training program, authored by Dr. David Frawley, explains Vedic astrology in clear and modern terms, providing practical insights how to use and adapt the system for the contemporary student. For those who have difficulty approaching Vedic astrology, the course provides many keys for unlocking its language and its methodology, both in terms of chart interpretation and for the practical application of remedial measures.
The course is unique in that it teaches Vedic astrology with a special reference to Ayurvedic medicine. This distinguishes it from other introduc' tory courses on Vedic astrology in which the Ayurvedic component is small or non-existent. The course is of special interest to Ayurvedic students and to those looking to specialize in medical astrology.
The goal of the course is to provide the foundation to enable one to become a professional Vedic astrologer. Its orientation is threefold:
• To teach the fundamentals of Vedic astrology and chart interpretation through the planets, signs, houses, aspects, yogas, divisional charts and dashas.
• To set forth the Vedic Astrology of Healing' (Ayurvedic Astrology), including an in-depth analysis of gem therapy, as well as the use of mantras and deities.
• To introduce the Nakshatras, Muhurta, Ashtakavarga and Vedic methods of timing, including the Vedic calendar.
The course can be taken as part of a longer tutorial program in Vedic astrology through the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA). It starts at a beginning level, but goes into depth into its subject. Since 1986 over three thousand people from all over the world have taken the course.
