For almost every Indian and millions across the world, Astrology is a familiar household word. The science of planetary movements-based prediction emerged in ancient times and has managed to adapt to the modern fast-paced world. With growing technology, competitive business environment, changing social institutions, astrology has also evolved over time.
Acharya Rajesh Chandra Sati, a senior astrologer with AstroVidwan.Com, believes that there is a bright future for this “most prominent science among all sciences”. A research scholar and Gold Medalist from Lal Bahadur Shastri Sanskrit Vidyapeeth, Acharya Rajesh Chandra Sati in an interview with YoungNFab, shares his insights on different aspects of astrology and about AstroVidwan:
Q) Why do you think Astrology is an important tool for problem-solving?
More than problem-solving, I opine that Astrology is an important tool for planning the future. It is a science which helps everyone in planning their professional and personal lives so as to derive the best results out of it. I believe that people, as they grow and move forward, become more conscious about planning their lives dexterously. This is why, in the modern world, the need and importance of Astrology is much more than that in the ancient world.
Q) Why do you think it is more important and relevant today?
It is more important because of the highly-competitive environment that we live in. Today, every individual wants to achieve bigger goals in life but the opportunities are diminishing with every passing day. Therefore, it becomes absolutely necessary that we plan our lives to make the best use of our time. This is where Astrology becomes relevant.
Q) Do you think the young urban generation believes in an ancient practice like Astrology?
The problem emerges when we look at Astrology as a religious practice when, instead, it is purely a scientific practice. The moment we link Astrology with a particular religion, it sprouts a seed of scepticism among people. However, if we look closely, Astrology is a part of different cultures and religions across the world and it manifests itself in different forms. It is imperative that the educated young generation looks at it as a scientific tool for problem-solving and use it for their benefit.
Q) How has technology helped in the growth and evolution of Astrology?
Technology has, first of all, taken Astrology to the masses across the world. Today, someone living in the United States can connect with an Astrologer in India and find a solution to their problems. In addition, today we have softwares that have made calculations easy and so the solution can be provided at a much faster pace.
However, there is also a downside to it. With the emergence of softwares and tools that are easily available online, people are misguided and end up losing their precious time. We must understand that just like any other science, Astrology also needs expert supervision for precise interpretation to reap the fruits of it.
Q) What is the vision of AstroVidwan and what makes it unique?
AstroVidwan has an experience of over 12 years and is today providing services in 23 cities across India. The most unique and important quality of AstroVidwan is that we provide home visits and assured solution to the problem of clients. We have a team of 47 skilled experts who can help with career, marriage, health, vastu and much more.
We also look forward to establishing AstroVidwan as a research facility where we can explore fresh ways of using Astrology as science for problem-solving and future planning. As we research and find new alternatives, we will take Astrology to a large population around the world. With new facts and new theories, we plan to break the stereotypes that have been formed regarding this practice and establish its image as a purely scientific practice for the benefit of mankind.
