PJC Year-1 Syllabus

1700-1799: T.Duvoteney
1700-1799: T.Duvoteney

Syllabus PJC Year-1

This is the foundation of Vedic astrology where the teachings of the sage Parāśara are explained in scientific detail. The principles involved in each śloka must be understood to ensure a strong foundation. Dṛṣṭi (aspects) are all derived and are not random.

  • The highlight of this year is the initiation into the sacred mantra of Maharṣi Parāśara. Those who have attended the contact course have benefited by the initiation. Others can consider seeking a private audience for the initiation with the Jyotiṣa Guru.
  • How do planets in the 12th bhāva encourage keeping pets, especially lagneśa? Because they aspect the 6th bhāva by the kāma dṛṣṭi (7th house aspect).
  • Did you know that all planets aspect the trines or have special aspects like the outer planets – Mars, Jupiter and Saturn? How do we derive some significations using the special aspects of these planets? All this is taught in the first year.

Syllabus

PJC Year-1 syllabus covers the first 28 chapters of Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra (BPHS) in eleven topics called ‘Category’. However, we have an epilogue called Śubhārambha meaning ‘Auspicious Beginnings’ and a prologue called Prakīrṇa (Miscellaneous) where we touch upon topics not covered by the remaining eleven core BPHS topics.

Each of these topic based categories is quite detailed with a number of lessons, audio and video presentations. Śubhārambha itself has ten lessons to start with, as an example.

Guru Dakṣiṇa
The traditional method of giving a gift in cash or kind to the teacher is called guru dakṣiṇa. It is your wish and only if you wish to do so, you can make a goft or donation. What you give cannot be refused by the guru especially when he is in this mode of teacher of vedāñga jyotiṣa. So please think before giving anything as dakṣiṇa. If you wish to give money, please cover it in an envelope to avoid the effects of the strong rajas guṇa associated with money.
The appropriate time to give this is after the class and normally, in private.

The location is exceptional, right on the banks of Bhim Tal. You can actually see the lake from your rooms, forget the balconies which almost feel like dropping to the gleaming surface of Bhim Tal during moon lit evenings. It is at Bhimtal so very well accessible. And most importantly, though it overlooks the lake, it is not on the main road. So it can not get any better than that. It is a walking distance from the touristy market of Bhim Tal and hence on location and access.

A total of 9 lakes in the region offer excellent rowing paddle boating, trekking , fishing, swimming and picnic opportunities. This lake town has the distinct advantage of a very pleasant weather all around the year because of its ideal altitude. Bhimtal takes its name from mighty Bhim (one of the Pandavas). In Hinduism. This picturesque lake perked by an island is believed to be full of Mahabharata legends. Today this lake interlude has emerged as a ‘different’ tourist destination.
There are many government and private institutions in Bhimtal which include Tassar Regional Research Center (Ministry of Textile, Govt. of India), National Cold Water Fisheries Institute, Jan Sikshan Sansthan, Birla Institute of Applied Sciences (a Institute if Higher Technical Education), Kumaon University Campus (Faculty of Management and Pharmacy) and District Institute of Teachers Education (DITE).
