Classical Sources Used: BPHS, Saravali, Brihat Jataka, Lal Kitab, Yavan Jataka. References to The Last Word of God are included not to mix Sunnah Kitab or Quran with worldly science, but to offer the best cure for worldly issues. Always know that this science and the latest religious revelations are separated from each other for more than 5000 years. If you were to evolve from old Vedic science and adopt the latest religious teaching, the leap is worth more than 5000 years of human evolution. I am currently conducting theological updates on all articles, hence some errors may be there. All credit for increased wisdom goes to the best & brightest man who ever walked on Earth who is no other than the Greatest Blessing For Humanity & Seal of Prophets Muhammad ﷺ, and people who kindly taught me the Word of God. All glory to God Almighty.

Please share your thoughts in the comments and share them with your friends. I will close the website due to my own decision in upcoming months - thanks for everyone who supported.

All the articles are based on the information given by Ancient Sages as seen from various classical sources which are addressed to Vedic enthusiasts. My intention is to deliver this knowledge in the most original form possible, i.e free of blasphemy, with elaborated explanations which are supported by actual observations to help Vedic enthusiasts get rid of confusion and introduce the right guidance via The Last Word to get closer to God and attain inner bliss.


  • Good article. So much could be written on the moon. In Vedic astrology it is considered so important that charts are considered where the position of the moon is used as the ascendant point. The moon waxes and wanes, the tides ebb and flow, and so do our thoughts and feelings. More than any other heavenly body, we feel its influence on a day to day basis!

  • Many thanks for the informative article, Martin.
    A slight doubt, you have mentioned that Moon gets exalted in Taurus owing to it being a sign of luxuries. But wouldn’t it rather be because the Moon is in a such a close relationship to the Earth, it gets exalted in the most earthly sign?
