Recorded live in Feb 2008 in Kerala India - CDs + Comprehensive Notes
Prashna means question. The querist is asking the astrologer a divine question to understand where his soul is at the present moment. The birth chart is what we are born with. This gives us the perimeters within which our life works. We can use our given tools beautifully or create problems for ourselves. The question to the prashna astrologer is Have I created positive karma for myself through expressing my free will or not. What areas are blocking me and how to resolve it. The prashna astrologer becomes Daivagnya (divine oracle) at the moment of the consultation and gives the answers as if through the higher power. This is a very profound and complicated branch of Vedic Astrology. Kerala is the place where this branch of Astrology flourishes. Komilla will teach this intensive with one of the masters of Kerala Prashna, Kailashnath Krishnan. Students will learn the Science of Prashna. How to answer questions. We will be using Prashna Marga, Varahamihira, Parashara and other great masters as our guides. Plus Komilla and Kailashnath's personal expertise. Each student will get to do a prashna for another student. Kailashnath will do a prashna demonstration for us to watch how it is done and contribute our opinion to what the prashna is telling us.

Sixteen is the number of perfection in the Vedas. It represents the fullness of existence, consciousness, and experience. The Shodasa Vargas or sixteen divisional charts are studied to understand the true nature of an individual. The connection between the mind, body and spirit is revealed. Each varga focuses on a different area of life and together they represent the complete picture. They reflect human consciousness, from reality to the subconscious. Eight divisional charts represent the physical life and conscious awareness (relationship, past life, career, children, prosperity etc), three divisional charts express the mind, happiness and striving for higher knowledge, two divisions show strengths and weaknesses and two unveil the spiritual development. The final varga reveals the subconscious and the deep-rooted karmic issues. This course will study all the divisional charts in details, their deities, their practical use, the subtle energies and how to interpret them.

The concept of Yogas is unique to Jyotish. Yoga means a yoke and a connection. In Jyotish there are many connections made by planets by being placed in specific relationships to each other or being in certain rashis or houses. Sometimes two difficult planets connect together in a unique way and instead of creating problems, they bring about a special energy that helps the chart rather than hinders it.
The yogas will be studied from the Lagna, Sun and Moon that have been emphasised in Sudarshana Chakra. Yogas in divisional charts will also be studied.
