Vedic is a word whose meaning refers to that which is true. This word has been adapted to the name of the astrology practiced in India and thus Indian or Hindu astrology as it is appropriately called is now known as Vedic Astrology. In Hindu religion, it is the Veda, the Truth, which is sought and one hopes to “know the Veda.” Indian astrology, being part of Hindu culture, can therefore rightly be called Vedic Astrology. But Veda, Truth, is greater than any culture, it is greater than Hinduism, Taoism or Christianity for it is all of these combined and more. Thus to use the term Vedic Astrology really means to embrace the Truth of Astrology and that is a vast truth beyond Hindu Astrology, Persian Astrology, Greek Astrology, Western Astrology, etc. For it is all of these and more. For some reason, in this day and age, Hindu astrology has been renamed as Vedic Astrology, so let’s get busy and live up to the new name and work towards discovering the greater truth of astrology – the truth of the Ancient Astrological Seers who knew the Veda!
