Synecdoche of Drishti or Planetary Aspects
Dr. Suresh Chandra
Drishti or aspect among planets and signs is
an essential feature of Vedic astrology. No Vedic astrologer ventures
into predictive astrology without considering the effect of planetary
aspects. The concepts of Drishti are as much relevant to the lagna
chart as they are to the Vargas or divisional charts. The author quoting
from major astrological classics, proves that the principles of Drishti
are as relevant to the Vargas as they are to the natal chart.
The Philosophy Behind Zero
Zero is the contribution to mathematics by the Indian system of thought.
zero digit was symbolized as a small circle 'o' and was called 'shoonya'.
The 'o' marks the reappearance of the same point after every 10 digits
on the circular scale of counting. In the absence of the Zero in mathematics,
one cannot symbolize a number as big as one desires. Mathematics would
have remained stunted without this concept.
