The Beginner’s Course has three modules and each module runs for ten weeks. This course lasts one year. This course can be studied by correspondence as well. Please enquire direct about this option. Membership of BAVA is included in the course fee of £215 per term of ten lessons. This also includes astrology programme, ephemeris and other course materials. The 1st term includes all of the basic elements of Jyotish.
The course covers all aspects of this vast ancient science including its spiritual and philosophical basis and will take you to basic competence. A second year’s study is available for those who wish to study for professional examinations. For those who have already studied Vedic Astrology for some time it is possible to join one of the more advanced classes.
No prior knowledge of astrology is required for the beginner’s course. Those with experience of modern Western astrology are also welcome and will find this knowledge of value in deepening their understanding of astrology. There are a small number of recommended books for the course. These will be available on mail-order from the UK if they are not available locally. Advice on books to study is available any time from Gordon Brennan. Students will also be given an Ephemeris and shown how to use it. There is also a free astrology programme available with the course.
The basic course is divided into three modules, one per term of ten weeks. The course syllabus will cover all of the basics of Vedic Astrology in the first two terms. This will include an introduction to Indian Mythology and Philosophy as well as an explanation of the main Sanskrit terms used and basic astronomy. The third term of ten weeks concentrates on the ability to read charts and less on acquiring new techniques.
Vedic Astrology is a very large subject and the student needs to become familiar with its terms in order to make good progress. There may seem to be quite a lot to learn initially, but as long as the principles are understood this will not be difficult.
BAVA courses are structured to lead to recognised qualifications in Vedic Astrology. The next BAVA examinations will be available at the same time as the 2016 BAVA Conference.
