Since the beginning of the Indological studies in the 18th century, research in every field has been continuously developed. Yet the scholars agree that their critical reconstruction of the origin and nature of Vedic culture is highly uncertain. The ancient Indian scriptures (shastras) agree that Vedic literature was written 5000 years ago at the beginning of Kali-Yuga, after it had been written down for millions of years in the form of shrutis (the beloved) by philosophers, yogis and saints (rishis ) was passed on in the long tradition of scuba diving. Although the empiricists often do not consider this complex whole of Vedic culture, they at least concede that the history of mankind has been rewritten by this dating and the worldwide discoveries. After all, the general trend in rewriting human history is to move the assumed dates for the beginning of modern civilization back further and further into the past. Usually it is archeology that is specifically geared towards finding out about ancient cultures. Some of what Vedic historiography tells is confirmed by archaeological finds, but the empirically determined data are too fragmentary to give us a clear picture of Vedic civilization. Many of the geographic locations mentioned in the scriptures are still known today, and some Indian temples are traditionally preserved for thousands of years. But these places could not produce any solid archological evidence and the excavations of cities and temples do not allow any empirical conclusions about the beginning of the Vedic culture. An interesting note may come from the field of astronomy, a little unexpected. Surya-siddhanta, Paitamahasiddhanta of the Vishnudharmottara Purana and Brahmagupta-siddhanta are three Vedic books on astronomy in which the celestial coordinates of different stars are given. At first glance, however, these coordinates differ significantly from the findings of modern astronomy. With the help of modern measuring techniques and calculations, the star movements were tracked and produced a surprising result. The coordinates contained in the Vedic texts are correct - but at a point in time that is thousands of years in the past. Some details describe constellations as they were seen in the sky more than 50,000 years ago. Western archeology begins in India in the early 19th century when the surveyors of the East India Company discovered many temples, holy places, ancient coins, and inscriptions of no longer spoken languages. In 1830, Emperor Ashoka's edict of the rock was deciphered and the beginning of Indian civilization was dated to 300 BC. It was not until the 20th century that there was new movement in the search for the roots of Indian civilizations, when the research expedition of the English archologist Sir John Marshall discovered remnants of a culture at Mohenjo-Daro in 1924 that is older than anything known to date. The find is in what is now Pakistan, on the western bank of the lower Indus. A short time later another town of the same age was excavated a few hundred kilometers further north near Harappa. The archological finds indicate a culture with well-functioning social urban communities, which do a lot of trade with each other and have a writing system. At first it is believed that the roots of this culture lie in Mesopotania, but later discoveries in 1998 led archologists Richard H. Meadow of Harvard University and J. Mark Kenoyer of University of Wisconsin, Madison to conclude that it was a separate one Hindu civilization that dates back to around 3000 BC. (Birth of a Civilization by Jonathan Mark Kenoyer Vice Director of the Harappa Archaeological Research Project, published by the Archaeological Institute of America, Issue 51, No. 1, January / February 1998). The American historian Will Durant points out in his "Cultural History of Mankind, The Legacy of the East" that this high culture was probably even more developed earlier. He writes: "Strangely enough, the lowest layers of these remains (of Mohenjodaro) show a more sophisticated art than the upper - as if the oldest camps came from a culture already hundreds, maybe thousands of years old .... According to Closing the house architecture, the seal cut and the grace of the pottery, the Indus culture was superior to the Babylonian at the beginning of the third millennium B.C. But that was a late phase of Indian culture; it could also have been leading earlier. "Today New finds, such as the sunken city "Dwarka" and the 1.7 million year old bridge between India and Sri Lanka, point to an immeasurably large ancient Vedic culture, which is described in the Ramayana with its ruler "RAMA". WHY VEDIC ASTROLOGY? 1.1 THE HOLY ASTROLOGY Literally translated in India, 'Veda' means wisdom. In several sacred ancient Hindu scriptures, the Vedas, we find wisdom of life that encompasses all conceivable levels of life, including astrology. Astrological methods and calculations are mentioned in the Rig Veda, which was probably made a few millennia before the birth of Christ. It is believed that the Greeks had contact with Indian astrologers at some point, because there are many parallels between the Greeks (who, incidentally, are considered the founders of Western astrology) and the Indians. Jyotish, the name of astrology in the Vedas, is a Sanskrit word that goes best with "the science of light" is translated. Of the six Vedangas or limbs of the Vedas, it is considered the most important, the true "eye" of the Vedas, for it is through the study of Jyotish that we see all of our circumstances here on earth. The ancient science of Jyotish reveals the subtle influences that come to us from the universe. The particular circumstances we are born into are the result of our karmas from previous births. This does not mean that we are helpless or that we cannot do anything to change our circumstances; but the outer events of our life are moved by our actions from the distant past. Knowing this helps us accept our present conditions and strive to shape the future in a better light through our actions in this life. The goal of life is to go beyond all external limitations and return to that original selves that are our true nature. Through Jyotish, we can get a better idea of ​​how to achieve this goal.
