The Intersection of Astrology and Inner Peace: A Perspective from Sri Guru Baba Vyas

Hello, seekers of wisdom and peace. I am Sri Guru Baba Vyas, here to share with you a profound understanding of astrology and its role in our journey towards inner peace. In this discourse, we will explore the essence of astrology, its impact on our lives, and how it intertwines with the teachings of the Bhagwad Geeta.

Astrology, as understood in the Vedic tradition, is a part of the Vedangas, a body of knowledge that includes Ayurveda, Vyakaran, Chanda, and Jyotish. These elements of knowledge aim to improve the quality of our lives, guiding us towards fulfilling our desires while remaining focused on the ultimate goal – returning to our spiritual home.

Astrology, or Jyotish, serves as a GPS on our spiritual journey, providing us with insights into our future, past, and present. It helps us understand the turns and twists of life, preparing us for what lies ahead. However, it is essential to remember that astrology is not the destination but a tool to navigate our journey.

Astrology plays a significant role in understanding our relationships, wealth, profession, and health. These aspects of life can significantly impact our peace of mind. A sudden collapse in any of these areas can lead to stress and anxiety, disrupting our spiritual journey. Astrology helps us make informed choices, minimizing potential damages and enhancing our life’s quality.

However, it is crucial to understand that astrology, like advice from a life coach or a business coach, focuses on our prosperity and adversity in this life until death. It helps us find the fastest route to the airport, but we need spiritual knowledge to know which flight to catch. Without coupling astrology with spiritual knowledge, we risk going around in circles without making any real progress.

The teachings of the Bhagwad Geeta provide us with the spiritual knowledge we need. The Geeta talks about the three Gunas – Satva, Rajas, and Thamas. Balancing these three Gunas is key to achieving inner peace. Too much Rajas leads to restlessness, too much Thamas results in laziness, but cultivating Satva brings about purity, knowledge, and harmony.

In my journey, I have found that astrology can be a useful tool in understanding the energies of space, especially when dealing with properties and lands with a rich history. However, it is essential to remember that astrology is only a tool, not the ultimate goal. Our focus should always be on the spiritual knowledge that guides us on our journey beyond this life.

In conclusion, astrology can provide valuable insights into our lives, helping us navigate our journey towards inner peace. However, it should be coupled with spiritual knowledge, as taught in the Bhagwad Geeta, to truly achieve inner peace. Remember, life is a preparation, and death is an examination. Let astrology guide you in your preparation, but let spiritual knowledge determine your success in the examination.
