Leeds International Vedic Astrology Conference: Fate & Fortune

It is always good news when announcing events and gatherings dedicated to the topic that we love, namely Jyotish. One such event has been planned for the month of October this year, in Leeds Theosophical Society.

The topic chosen is Bhagya: Fate & Fortune. The conference has an exciting panel of speakers, including Visti Larsen, Rajan Pitamber, Gordon Brennan, Vijaya Subramanian, and Paul Barker.

For bookings and further information email: info@ts-leeds.org.uk.

This will be the second year around to meet this wonderful and growing part of our Jyotish community. Last year Visti Larsen presented two topics, of which one was a whole day lecture on the topic of Ātma sambandha or How the planet symbolizing the soul, the Ātmakāraka, affects the native’s relationships and life!

This workshop is now available at RAMA Academy, together with accompanying workbook, free material and more.

Hope this is of a benefit to you and your ever-growing knowledge.

In today’s world, there is an abundance of advice and knowledge as to how to create better habits, how to stay accountable, how to live your best life, etc. There are scientists, philosophers and plenty of spiritual teachers addressing this exact topic… and then there is knowledge from Tradition!

For many years I practice one simple routine thought in our tradition that I wish to share with you. And that is as soon as you wake up, and before your feet touch the floor, do your gratitude mantra to the One that is carrying your burden from the day you came to this world, to the Mother Divine.
