Reincarnation - Death & Dying

Dear Hearts
I bring here the Gurudeva's information that I find interesting.
I have been looking for one article but is no longer there. I have it on my old computer but not in Sydney so I may share it next month.


Hindu astrology, or Jyotisha, details a real relation between ourselves and the geography of the solar system and certain star clusters, but it is not a cause-effect relation.

Planets and stars don't cause or dictate karma. Their orbital relationships establish proper conditions for karmas to activate and a particular type of personality nature to develop.

Jyotisha describes a relation of revealment: it reveals prarabdha karmic patterns for a given birth and how we will generally react to them (kriyamana karma).
This is like a pattern of different colored windows allowing sunlight in to reveal and color a house's arrangement of furniture.

With astrological knowledge we are aware of our life's karmic pattern and can thereby anticipate it wisely.
