It is also known as Vedic Astrology, an extant form of ancient astrology still practiced in India. Jyotish is the instructional constituent of the Rig Veda, and as such is a Vedanga, or “body part” of the Vedas. Jyotish is called the Eye of the Veda, for its ability to see into the future. Jyotish has historically been part of a continuous “holistic” approach to living and to spiritual practice within the life of Hindus predominant in India.
