Astrology and Free Will


A cyber-devotee asks about the use of astrology and whether the will of man is stronger than the influence of the planets and stars. Gurudeva explains that astrology works best when the astrologer knows the client very well, including their family background, friends and associates. This is the way of traditional Indian astrology. And Gurudeva answers that, yes, the individual's own efforts can mitigate the negative periods.

The force of the intellectual area of the mind is controlled and transmuted through the power of a regulated breath. A beginning pranayama is a method of breathing nine counts as we inhale, holding one; nine counts as we exhale, holding one count.
