Institute of Astrology, Bharitya Vidya Bhavan , New Delhi is the largest school of Astrology in the world. It has the largest research section anywhere, comprising of teachers and 300 senior students, who research various domains of life that affect a person in life. For example the Bhavan has published research, first in its field, in areas like marriage, profession, education and Jaimini Astrology. With 50 published books in Hindi and English and twelve of them being translated into Russian and Japanese, Bhavan stands unparalled in astrological activities
We have received hundreds of queries from lovers of astrology from all over the world wanting to learn Vedic Astrology. A lot of you wanted to know if we provide correspondence courses in astrology. We believe that astrology that can be absorbed can only be taught in a class by an experienced teacher of astrology.
We have been receiving requests from many people who are unable to do the two year course in Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, to introduce a correspondence course. Instead we have decided to have personal teacher-student reaction which we have been having successfully with Russians since 1998 both at Moscow and in Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, New Delhi. Since it is going to be the first ever personal teacher-student reaction for students other than from Russia , we would like them to answer the questions given below in an email and send them to us.
The proposed program can be made more meaningful for the participants if we know the level of their astrological knowledge.(Please answer the following questions in the same order as below and email them to us). We need to get this feedback from you as soon as possible so that we can guide you to the right class.
