An Evening Talk was organised on 17th AUG’15 with Topic ‘ASTROLOGY – A SCIENCE’ by Mr. YOGESH PAWAR who has done BE(Civil) from MSU with 20 Yrs. Experience in Vedic Jyotish. He achieved M.A.V.J. [Master of Arts in Vedic Jyotish] from Yoga Samskrutam University, Florida, USA & has been awarded an Appreciation Certificate by HINDU ASTROLOGICAL SOCIETY, LONDON for giving free service in JYOTISH NIDAN SHIBIR at Ahmedabad. He achieved VISHARAD in Apr’08 & achieved SHASTRI in Apr’11 & thereafter in Apr’13 achieved ACHARYA in JYOTISH SHASTRA from MSU. He has been Certified as JYOTISH PRADIP by JYOTISH GYAN SANSTHA, Vadodara in Jul’03. He was honoured by ALL GUJARAT ASTROLOGICAL SOCIETY in Jan’08 & in Jul’12 by SANSKRIT VARTMAN PATRAM-Vadodara. The simplest definition of science is to give proof in concerned phenomenon. The proof may be physical or logical. In astrology, also the concerned principles can be proved very easily. For example, all individuals born in a particular Nakshatra or Rashi possess in general similar characteristics irrespective of Age, Gender, Cast, Qualification, etc. Of course, percentage effect of a particular characteristic may vary from person to person. Generally, those who believe in science say how planets, located thousands of km. away, can affect a person? But, if those born in same Nakshtra or Rashi posses same characteristics of Nakshtra or Rashi, automatically proves that planets have effect on individuals. The Person's behaviour, lifestyle, working processes, interest in different fields, etc. emerges as per his/her basic characteristics. In astrology, basic principles for predictions depend on Nakshtras, Rashis & Planets. Thus, any phenomenon in astrological principle can be proved in a scientific way. The Chairman, Mr.Malay Mazumdar received the auspicious Gold Plated Shree Yantra from Astrology Academician of M.S.University. The EC Members & students comprising of 55 persons participated to enhance knowledge about Astrology as many had brought their Janam Patrika & very well enjoyed the programme.
