Mahaṛṣi Jaimini Kṛtam Upadeśa Sutram

Jyotish Parampara
Those of us who are fortunate to be studying Jyotish under the guidance of our esteemed Guru Pandit Sanjay Rath are today part of the Jyotish Parampara, or Vedic lineage, that has kept this knowledge pure and sacred for over 500 years since the time of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and his enlightened Jyotishi Sri Achyutananda. Sanjay’s mission is to create a Jyotish Parampara to ensure that the purity of the knowledge and the correct teachings of Jyotish in line with our Tradition are maintained and preserved for generations to come.

Jaimini Scholar Program
The Jaimini Scholar Program is an advanced Jyotisha course in the practice and teaching of the Upadesha Sutras of Maharishi Jaimini, personally taught by Pandit Sanjay Rath to a selected group of students in the Himalayan foothills of India over a 5 year period from 2007 to 2011. Sanjay has said that he will be teaching the Maharishi Jaimini Sutra Course once, and once only, and so Jaimini Scholars have a huge responsibility as custodians of this profound and precious knowledge, both to ourselves and to our students, to ensure that this knowledge remains pure. History has shown repeatedly how knowledge becomes distorted and impure with the long lapse of time, but now thanks to the Digital Age, we have recordings and slides of Sanjay’s teachings for eternity.

Course Enrollment and Site purpose

This resource is a compilation of the Jaimini Sutra Workshop recordings and lessons, meant for students who already are studying the Jaimini Sūtras from a Jaimini Scholar. Whilst Years 1 & 2 have been made available to everyone, irrespective of having a teacher or not, years 3A and 3B requires a mentor and approval of the said mentor to join. No teaching or mentorship is offered on-site, nor does the site administer the possible tuition fees of said mentors, and instead it is recommended to contact a Jaimini Scholar to begin learning.
