Restoring Mental Health with Vedic Astrology: An Ancient Understanding of the Root of Mental Distress

Freedom will discuss the factors that create mental resilience from a traditional Vedic perspective, explain how they are seen astrologically, and explore how these concepts can be translated into modern psychological terminology. Then he will explore some common mental health issues through this lens of astrology and share how he utilizes this to recommend different types of modern psychology approaches to be most supportive to returning the heart and mind to balance.

As astral magic returns to a place of respect, the limited sources for reconstruction open many questions. How do the planetary gods relate to the various pantheons among other cultures and how can we apply the principles of astral magic to working with them? The Greeks had a system of syncretism called Interpretatio Graeca, which was carried forward by the Romans who correlated the gods of other cultures with their own. Freedom will discuss how this has been done during the last two millennium in the Vedic tradition, where deities from various pantheons are regularly incorporated into planetary remedial practices to heal disease and improve the quality of life.

Freedom will discuss textual references of astrological syncretism in Vedic, Vaiṣṇava, Śaiva, and Tāntrik pantheons. He will share how this is utilized within living astrological traditions as not just a one-to-one direct correlation, but a complex pluralism that respects the nature of the pantheons while using them for astrological magic. Freedom will share some personal experiences from his practice and give some suggestions for future works integrating deities of other cultures.

Freedom Cole is known for his ability to translate ancient Vedic principles into practical application. He has spent more than two decades studying within a living Indian Jyotiṣa tradition and is recognized as a senior teacher (Jaimini Scholar and Jyotiṣa Paṇḍita). He is a practitioner of Āyurveda (AP), Yoga therapy (C-IAYT) and has an MA in Clinical Psychology. Freedom is the author of two books and numerous articles. He is faculty in the Āyurveda and mental health modules of the Kripalu Yoga Therapy program and has an international Jyotiṣa school (Science of Light) where he is dedicated to empowering practitioners.

good to see you☺️🙏🏼Sounds great!

All the best 👍👍👍

🙏🏻🌙🙏🏻 I’m sure you will blow their minds away …

I couldn’t have said it better.What becomes evident and reiterated for a student on any Vedic path – such as a Yoga, Ayurveda, Jyotish, or Vastu, for example – is when we truly touch a tradition. We don’t just know that the study, information, or teacher is offering something with Indian or Vedic roots. We inherently know and FEEL the geographical, regional, and cultural ties. We feel the living lineage. We know the living lineage. There is a clear tradition-al approach to the path that gives one an experience of a type of apprenticeship. And the practice offers a feeling of wholeness, completion, where the teachings being offered and studied have a rich, insightful depth that very distinctly moves us from the valuable external purifying and stabilizing practices to a tangible and accessible internal pathway. There is no sense of lacking or needing to find more. There is a sense of Shraddha, of trust and faith in the complete system offered. There is an inherent knowing, beyond the thinking rationalizing mind, that we are touching the nectar. It leaves us curious and hungry for more of the ambrosia. Yet simultaneously we are humbled and satisfied with the slow unfolding of studentship. We want to tell the world (so no one misses the beauty!), whilst also wanting to keep the wisdom path as a precious secret, close to the heart.

I’ve very gratefully touched these qualities over the years specifically studying Odissi. And have very recently fallen onto a path to pursue study of Vedic mantra (after years of sensing it coming, but not having known nor felt the right path ahead).

Notably, after years of feeling an indescribable connection to learn @shadow_yoga – but not having access to a teacher locally – it has been a truly enriching blessing to finally be able to direct some time to learning under the generous, articulate, and insightful Rebecca Barlow, of @apsarayogashala, here in Canberra. So far, Shadow Yoga feels like a thread that connects and weaves Yoga and Odissi together like a beautiful tapestry.

May you too have the great fortune of finding the nectar on your path. The secrets are waiting to be discovered by those with a heartfelt yearning for the limitless depths!

Shadow Yoga is probably the only legit form of hatha yoga in the public eye these days.

This weekend is the National Ayurvedic Medical Association Conference, and it will be available live online.

I will be moderating the Allied Science panel at 10:30AM on Saturday. It will have one Yoga Therapist (Nishita Shah), one Vastu Shastri (Michael Mastro), and one Jyotishi (Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar), and I plan to weave them together for the Ayurvedic practitioner to have an idea of why and when we need each of them.

Then I will be a panelist in the Advanced Track on the Ojas Panel at 3:30pm that Saturday. There will be a doctor (Aparna Bapat) discussing ojas at the physical level, a psychologist (Sujatha Reddy) discussing ojas at the mental level, and I will discuss ojas on the spiritual (karana) level. This will be moderated by doctor of Ayurveda Dinesh Gyawali.

If you have been studying Ayurveda or getting ready to, the NAMA conference is a great place to hear the modern voices of Ayurveda and learn where you to go next or expand what you presently understand.No plans next Saturday?

Science of Light level 1 have been an amazing dive into Vedic Astrology. Studying with Freedom, is like drinking water from the source of the spring. The live classes and virtually endless prerecorded content is a generous offering and will satisfy any eager student. I appreciated the richness of the tradition and the innovative ways of which makes it as relevant as possible in our modern and culturally diverse world. Having the support of fellow students and the Facebook group, as well as awesome teacher assistants, was invaluable.

This course far exceeded my expectations. I’m still digesting the amount of knowledge that was offered. Absolutely phenomenal.🙏

Both level 1 and 2 are amazing courses. The reason why I chose this course is because the teachings are from a traditional lineage going back to the 1500 – and the main Guru of that lineage is Pandit Sanjay Rath (mind blowing astrologer). Freedom is amazing at teaching and makes sure you acquire the logic necessary as well as knowledge to understand a chart. The group meetings every week feel intimate, and are perfect for asking questions and get clarification. You will not regret taking this course and the impact on how you perceive the world will be forever changed in a beautiful way 😃

Science of Light has forever changed my life but moreover grown me as a person. The intimacy of the class and beginner-friendly, stepwise structure, sets Freedom’s course apart from the rest.

What attracted me originally to this course is that Freedomji has been my Jyotisha for over 6 years, his advice and predictions have always been correct. So when the time came for me to learn Jyotish, there was no question who was going to be my teacher. Freedomji has brilliantly transcribed the scriptures from this lineage-based tradition in his text book and then teaches you in a succinct, systematic way so it all comes together beautifully ensuring that you are ready and confident to read charts at the end of your first year. The weekly live classes, the recordings, the book – the entire course is brilliantly laid out for you to succeed. I am in amazement at how much I have learned and how this course has taken my Ayurvedic practice to a level that is beyond my wildest imagination. I am forever grateful to Freedomji for his Science of Light course and for sharing this lineage with us.

I have spent the last five+ years in astrology classes under many different teachers, and no course has transformed my astrology practice & general quality of life the way Science of Light has. The way Freedom breaks down information and fosters a supportive, welcoming environment makes complex, challenging topics very digestible, even for someone like me who typically has barriers to learning in online class settings.
I started this course after a very difficult life event and was unsure how I’d be able to keep up. Now, on the other side of year one, my life is so much happier & more balanced, I can’t imagine how I would have weathered that period without this resource. More importantly, in the short time since I’ve been able to share some of the remedies learned in this course, I’ve witnessed similar positivity and balance come into the lives of family members, friends, and clients. I anticipated this course being interesting and beneficial, but it far exceeded my expectations. I am so grateful it exists and cannot recommend it enough to anyone even slightly on the fence.

One of the most significant challenges facing any serious Jyotish student is the subject's sheer depth and breadth. A major strength in Freedom's Science of Light Courses lies in the structure, organization, and systematic approach applied to every lesson. Each lesson is carefully designed to illuminate fundamental principles of Parashara but also to systematically bridge those essential teachings seamlessly into more advanced areas. The benefit of this pragmatic approach is that far more relevant material is covered in a shorter period. Students with only a bit of Jyotish knowledge can move more quickly and cover more advanced topics as long as the student remains focused. To that end, the cohort approach combined with Freedom's natural enthusiasm and deep intimate knowledge of the subject naturally motivates students and helps them sustain the required focus. I highly recommend the course.

Science of Light courses are detailed, well structured and will provide you with a solid foundation in Jyotish, with enough references to satisfy the inquisitive students. I have a deep respect for Freedom as a teacher. He is very passionate in his teachings and he truly wants you to succeed. He will challenge you and help you along the way. In order to be successful, you'd need to dedicate enough time to study. It can be challenging for a working mother like me, but it is possible if you really want to do it. I enrolled in SOL not knowing that I will be forever transformed in the way I view this world. It was a wonderful journey and a beautiful blessing. Thank you Freedomji! 🙏

Hello Admin, I have not received zoom link to join the class today. Please can you help, I have tried reaching out to your offive number but there is no answer. Thank you

The best!

Dear friends,
I am learning astrology since 2015. For the due interest, I have collected so many books from various publishers
and by various authors. I also used to go through many resources through online mode too. But none of the resources fulfilled my satisfaction since the matters were highly scattered hither and thither. So I was struggling to connect the dots. An year ago, I received a book named "Science of light". I astonished after reading the book since it was well structured. I am so much impressed by the way the book was written. Then I have decided to join the course and
completed an year successfully.
In this course, our guruji designed the step by step method for good understanding of the basics. He beautifully
lift us from one stage to another. All the previous years recordings are available which was highly helpful to build a
strong foundation and to develop our multidimensional thinking on a particular topic. Finally, the practical session on
reading the charts is a gem on the crown of this course which boosts our confident level to the next stage.
In this course we are not only learning the astrological content, but also the ethical aspects of an Astrologer too.
Also there is a Facebook group where we can share our ideas not only with our batchmates but also with our seniors who
help us through deep and healthy discussions.
I feel blessed to be a member of this Science of light family and I recommend this course for the people who wanted to quench their thirst of knowledge on Astrology. I assure that the students who join this course will gain the fruits
as I am.

Thank you for this, Freedomji. It answers some questions I’ve been pondering. In your experience, have you found that astrology can help with acceptance of a loss, after the family member has gone through a healthy grieving process? My close friend lost her young daughter to heart failure last year and recently asked me to look at her chart. How do you incorporate both relative truth and ultimate truth in your readings/counseling?

This is perhaps the best write up I have read in recent times..

When I was 8 years old .. lost 35 year old aunt for cancer !!

Have had close friends go through depression because of Miscarriage and loss of twin sibling with in a year..

Never could comprehend this topic of death.. It's a harder topic to digest !

Thank you for the post Freedomji !

That is illuminating, Freedomji! 🙏🏽

500 years ago, my paramparā guru Śri Āchyutānanda Dāsa taught that God is no one’s property and that the clothing you wear does not make you better than another. Śri Āchyutānanda was a famous Astrologer, Āyurvedic doctor and Yogi, and preached against discrimination by caste and religion.

The Bhagavad Gīta teaches that the same divinity lives in the heart of all beings (XVIII.61). The Ahirbudhnya Saṁhitā adds that the recognition that ‘all beings are the body of God’ leads to the conviction to be kind to all beings (ānukūlya-niścaya). From this awareness, non-violence (ahiṁsa) develops naturally. Without this vision, the doors to realization will remain closed.

The spiritual tradition of the Jyotiṣa lineage, in which I practice, has stood and continues to stand against discrimination, and to recognize that the whole world is one family (vasudhaiva kuṭumbakam). At this time, in the United States, that means we support Black Lives Matter.

The quotes this year are from Zoran Radosavljevic's book "Brush Up on the Vedic Astrology Basics". He was an incredible Serbian Jyotish practitioner who taught throughout Eastern Europe and Russia. After using herbs and mantra to stay well for many years with an incurable auto-immune disease, a final battle with cancer took him. I acknowledge him in Science of Light Volume 2, and honor him this year with his (not first language English) quotes.

We can have study dinners…

I just graduated this course last year and it has given me such a solid foundation in Jyotish. I'm currently doing readings each week and feel solid in freedom's teachings and transmission. The Vedic community within science of light is also super supportive. Def recommend !

Are the recordings live?

this course is super thorough and captivating! you can enroll as a beginner to astrology or have a background in jyotish already. eitherway, you will walk away with a deeper appreciation and understanding in how to assess the karmic patterns manifested in a birth chart.

freedom cole has studied vedic astrology for many years under his guru sanjay rath (an esteemed indian astrologer tracing his lineage back to acyutananda). his 'science of light course' is authentic in its teachings and very engaging and interactive for the student.

each week, i came to class eager to learn more on the fundamental principles in jyotish. in fact, i have seen several practicing vedic astrologers take this course (some with 20 years of experience under their belt!) and be humbled by what they thought they knew about jyotish.

constructive feedback is continually provided to ensure students are grasping & applying concepts properly. this course has enabled me to see myself and others more clearly. moreover, it has pushed me to further develop my sense of unconditional, positive regard, which is necessary when reading birth charts. i am very grateful to have found this course and will certainly do my part in sharing my experiences of it.

prospective students, please feel free to private message me with any questions you have regarding the course!

OM
Namaste 🙏

I studied Jyotish intensely for a month during the 2 year course in Maharishi Ayurveda at MUM in 2000. We were taught to figure out charts by hand from scratch, no computers 😉

I would love to continue diving deeper into Parashara’s knowledge of all times. I live in California,so it would require planning a trip.

Is the conference free of charge?

Just wondering what topics will you cover?

Cultural appropriation has become a big topic lately. I used this time at the compass (LIB 2019) to discuss my thoughts on the subject and how those using the Hindu gods and goddesses can avoid appropriation. This discussion will also bring a lot of insight into how gods and goddesses are prescribed in the Indian traditions.

Cultural appropriation has existed since the dawn of time. What I usually find is that the supposed victim of the appropriation, really doesn't care. Or else, I would have to change my wardrobe.

Knowledge from freedom cole pt sanjay rath is like soma from deva.

After the likes of Freedom Cole Visti Larsen and Pandit Sanjay Rath you cannot listen to too many others talk about Astrology
This lineage stands supreme in its authenticity and command over the basics
I wandered for 10 years before stumbling gratefully into this lineage

I can't wait to get started!!

this course is fantastically thorough and captivating! you can enroll as a beginner to astrology or have a background in jyotish already. eitherway, you walk away with a deeper appreciation and understanding in how to assess the karmic patterns manifested in a birth chart. freedom cole has studied vedic astrology for many years under his guru sanjay rath (an esteemed indian astrologer tracing his lineage back to acyutananda). this 'science of light course' is authentic in its teachings and, to top it off, totally engaging. each week, i came to class chomping at the bit to learn more! constructive feedback is provided to ensure students are grasping & applying concepts properly. i honestly can’t say enough goodness about this course. it has changed my life for the better in so many ways. two shining examples of this are: 1) that it has enabled me to see myself and others more clearly, and 2) it has pushed me to further develop my sense of unconditional, positive regard. i am very grateful to have literally stumbled across this course and will certainly do my part in sharing my experiences of it. please feel free to message me with any questions you may have regarding the course ❤️

Consistently, Jonardon Ganeri is one of my favorite modern philosophers/authors:

"Knowledge should indeed be thought of as a tree – just not this kind of tree. Rather than the European fruiter with its single trunk, knowledge should be pictured as a banyan tree, in which a multiplicity of aerial roots sustains a centreless organic system."

"An epistemic pluralist claims that just as a banyan tree has many different but equally valuable roots, so there are many different but equally valuable ways of interrogating reality."
