Jain Astrology vs Vedic Astrology
What do Vedas say About Astrology?
Vedic Astrology has been an integral part of India since ancient times, and it was brought into practice to determine a native’s fate. In this system, a birth chart or a natal chart is made by Astrologers, keeping in mind the planets’ position at the exact time of birth. Based on the chart, the future of the native is predicted. Auspicious or inauspicious events are tried to be understood beforehand. If it is encouraging, then there are no issues, but if there are inauspicious events or traits in the future, an Astrological solution is also required. The Astrologers give this solution based on their calculation of the position of planets during birth time. Likewise, Jainism also believes in Astrology.
Jain Astrology: The Fundamental Difference and Similarities with Vedic Astrology
Jainism in Astrology differs from Vedic Astrology on this point. According to it, once a person dies, the soul goes into another body which takes about 3 to 4 prahars. This period is also taken into consideration in Jain Astrology. From the time an infant is born and the food cord is removed, that is the baby’s correct birth time. Based on this, the horoscope is created, and efforts are made to look into the future.
