Welcome to the Parāśara Jyotiṣa Course (PJC) -India, Batch of 2017. Welcome to the realm of the ṛṣis. As you prepare yourselves to be initiated to the Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra in the Himalaya Class (31 Aug – 12 Sep, 2017), you need to study deep, read and reflect. The preparation itself entails that the rajas slowly leaves the mind as your life gradually changes over the next five years.
There are several preparatory lessons under the Śubhāraṁbha Sub-Course. These are in a definite order starting from the lesson at the top and gradually progressing down.
You will need to study and discuss the lessons within your group. The assignment will be done by the groups and not by individuals. In the eyes of the Maharṣi, all are equal. You will need to learn to move around your friendship alignments of PJC and work with others. Some will be more active. Others will be pre-occupied. Let sattva prevail.
To get started, please introduce yourself to other members of your group at the Group Forum

- If you are a PJC-2017 Year-1 Member and do not find your name in the lists, contact the mentor immediately firstname.lastname@example.org
- There are no rules, just some points about being nice and having some order. Here are a few and we will add more later
- The members of a study group must use only their own forum or a common forum to write. Do not write inside the forum of another study group of which you are not a member.
- Mentors also have access to these forums and are watching whether you are active or snoozing. Your activity is a measure of your participation and learning.
- Don’t use bad words. Discuss, debate – that’s healthy and very good, but just no swear words at all. Harsh statements which do not have swear words are also included as ‘not allowed’. See this example “your mother is going to fall from the third floor for …” Now that’s not a nice thing to say.
