Astrovedic Saturday-Academy (Jyotishworkshop)

On this page we will present our new seminar format and show the next upcoming dates.
From 14 September 2019, we will offer an online seminar once a month with an international speaker. The spectrum of topics and speakers will be broad. This idea was born because I have met so many interesting Indian astrologers and colleagues at congresses in recent years and have now found an opportunity to present them with their individual topics to our students.

There will be two lessons of 90 mins each, sometimes one in the morning and one in the afternoon or both in the afternoon (European time), depending on the timezone of the Speaker.

All offers are in English language with German translation. A download will then be available, which will be included in the price for all participants.

Next Seminar (online):

Saturday,  24th of April and 8th of May – 11 h to 12.30 h and 14 to 15.30 h: Vinay Aditya

The Padas – a leaf from Jaimini Astrology integrated in Parashari chart interpretation

Pada is a unique concept of Jaimini Astrology. It generates a new reference point for every house. Analysis of the chart through Pada considerations provides new insights into the chart reading. Taking a leaf out of Jaimini we will use it predominantly as per our regular Parashari practices and watch how it augments our understanding of the chart. It would be good to have prior knowledge of Jaimini astrology, but it would not be necessary for this seminar.


  • Definition and calculation of padas (Arudhas)
  • Relative positions of the Padas
  • Jeeva relations of the Padas
  • Yoga at the padas level
  • Fields of application, such as occupation
  • Padas in the context of temporal triggers
  • numerous examples

This is partly a repetition of a Workshop Vinay Aditya held years ago in the context of a German Astotrological conference. Part 1, the introduction, can be regarded as a repetition, part 2 is a continuation. Who has participated in Part 1 back then, can either just book part 2 or they can repeat the first part for a reduced fee.
