Here is the podcast #2 -Introduction to Jyotish-Vedic Astrology Part 2 by Pandit Atul Krishna Das

Transcript for the first few minutes:

Jyotish means the science of light, the science of luminaries. Moon, Mars, Venus all these planets have energies that affect us in various ways.
Planets have an effect on us whether you believe it or not.
Something as simple as "have you seen what happens during a full moon"
People can act a little crazy. Minds are affected. they maybe do something that they may not usually do. It has even given rise to this expression called moon mad.

And of course the term, "lunacy" comes from Moon. It was observed when
people had any kind of instability, we will say that there may be a vata disorder, that may be involved with psychosis- it may be involved with the moon.

The moon pulls the moon. Sun also has an effect on our digestion, our fire. Important thing is that we have karma and our karma is coming from our past lives.

Time of birth is not by chance.

We are born at a time when it is the right time for us to be born (for us to receive
the karma that has been assigned and attributed to us by our own actions in the previous life).

Vedic astrology not about destiny or predetermination.

You can look at a chart and understand things about them, their karma, their nature, and even life events. This is not going to be 100% who they are. We are individuals.

We have the ability to take up spiritual processes like yoga that can free us from t his karma.
