SYSTEMS OF VEDIC KNOWLEDGE
These two aspects of Vedic science are bound to become much more important for the future.

Jyotish (astrology) provides for graha shanti or harmonizing with celestial forces, the powers of time. Vastu provides griha shanti or peace in the house or dwelling, the forces of space. These two give us the right orientation in time andspace. Ayurveda provides deha shuddhi or purification of the body. Yoga provides chitta-shuddhi or purification of the mind. These two give us harmony in our personal life of body and mind. Vedanta provides Self-realization that is the ultimate goal of all these.

Just as with Ayurveda, Western Vedic astrology students are also interested in mantras, deities and pujas that are an important part of the system, particularly for remedial measures (for balancing planetary influences). Ganesha has become the visible deity of Vedic astrology in the West. Students are also interested in the planetary  deities and the mythology of Vedic astrology. They see the great wisdom in this subtle science and recognize its Hindu foundations.
