The Horoscopes by Bhrigu

Astrology is not considered an exact science by scientists as they feel there are too many variables in it. However Astrology commands a wide following all over the world and some astrologers have made uncanny forecasts that defy rationale. In this respect Hindu predictive Astrology is generally recognized as having some merit. Again this also is against the general realm of science and test. Among the Hindus legend says that a Saint named Bhrigu reportedly cast all known horoscopes in the world. Bhrigu is supposed to have lived many thousands of years back, but the beauty of his forecasts is that they are relevant in the modern world. This on the face of it perverse as one can legitimately ask as to how a horoscope cast many centuries back can be valid in the 21st century. But the proof of the pudding is in its eating and a deeper study will show that the horoscopes cast by Bhrigu are valid even today.

Bhrigu and his Horoscopes

Bhrigu is recognized as a saint in Hindu mythology. It is possible that he lived about 4000 years back, much earlier than the Vedic age. History records very little about Bhrigu, but he must have been a real person as some his horoscopes have survived to this day. Bhrigu reportedly cast about 500,000 horoscopes but over a period of almost 4000 years with the invasions and wars occurring at frequent intervals only a few thousand have survived. But a study of these few thousand horoscopes will convince even the hardened skeptic that Astrology is indeed a wondrous science.


Now for a little bit of information. People will be surprised to learn that a portion of these horoscopes are available at a place in the Indian Punjab at Hoshiarpur. This is a small city about 40 km from the main line railway station at Jullundur. The horoscopes came into the custody of one Pandit Desraj who is no more. How Pandit Desraj got hold of these horoscopes is not known. Some people say he picked them up from Kabadi (Trash goods) shop. The horoscopes have now got distributed among his sons who all reside in the same area at Railway Mandi. But with the passing of Pandit Desraj the sons have brought an element of commercialization in this and thus gone against the grain of the philosophy of the saint Bhrigu. Thus searching for a matching horoscope has become that much more difficult.

The Horoscopes

The horoscopes are perhaps the ninth wonder of the world. These horoscopes cast many centuries back refer to births in the 20th and 21st century. They not only give the position of the planets but also cast the future and past. They also offer remedial measures to avert a crisis in life. The wonder of these horoscopes is that they mention the name of the person whose horoscope is found as well his fathers name and name of his wife and children. But to learn about this one has to visit Hoshiarpur and give his place, date and time of birth to the custodian who after search will come out with your horoscope. But there is a good chance that your horoscope may not be found and that is just bad luck.

The Wondrous Knowledge

Hoshiarpur has its fill of visitors many of them from Europe and the United States. The Horoscopes written in Sanskrit and on parchment paper have to read out and translated by the custodian, unless of course if you know Sanskrit.

People who go to Hoshiarpur hand over their birth details. The custodian will then sift through the horoscopes and take out the matching horoscope. In case you are lucky your horoscope may be found in a short time otherwise it can take months. In case your horoscope is not found you can leave your contact details and the custodians will contact you when it is found. You can then visit Hoshiarpur and have your future revealed. I can assure you the information will startle you.

Interesting article Singh. What does it matter whether Scientists today consider it Science or not!

The idea that Bhrigu Rishi pioneered that in principle one can write down future of all, based on principles of astrology, by writing down the same for all combinations of stars appearing at any given time occurring in nature, is indeed highly admirable. The fact that he could apply such logic and exactness even 1000's of years back makes it even much more exceptional.

the scientists should know the definition of science. what they don't know with their limited knowledge they are not ready to accept that. then what about ayurveda. is it not a science. it is always related with astrology and India is the mother of the medical science propounded by the Sages
