Tapping into the subtle. Becoming the clients chart.

Proper Intellectual Discrimination to detach from the chart of the client.

The Valuable Usage of Jyotish:

"Heyam Dukham Anagatam" (Avert the danger which has not yet come).

That which you feel is not good potential, you have the capacity to change it, avoid it.

  1. This was a deeply moving and inspiring podcast. Jyotish is so intricate and advanced and my knowledge of it beyond my own nakshatras is very limited.

    But hearing Blaine speak on the many aspects of astrology, karma, dharma, Vedic techniques and even his own Sadhana was inspiring beyond words. So simple and yet full of so much depth.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Thank you for all your hard work Dylan. Your passion for Ayurveda and all things health and wellness is infectious and a great seva to mankind.

    Many thanks ??
