Prashna is a method of divination that uses the position of the planets at the moment a question is asked to the Astrologer. By studying the chart of the heavens above, one gains special insight on the coinciding situations happening down below on Earth. This system was also used in the in Persian, Hellenistic, and Medieval Western Astrological traditions as well as in India. The North Indian Tajika system of Prashna is, in fact, a more perfectly preserved version of the exact same system as used in Persia many centuries ago. Tajika itself even refers to a region of Persia known as Tajikistan, so there should be no misunderstanding here. It is really a wonderful thing that this system has been preserved and was not lost completely to time, like much of the western and eastern astrological traditions.
Please enjoy this two-part video series on Prashna, and why scientists would actually appreciate and, dare I say, want to begin to consider looking at this very intricate system of divination.
In this first part, I elaborate on what “Prashna” means, and how it works. It gives an objective yes or no answer to questions, which should be appreciated. Too often Astrology is ignored because people think it cannot offer objective answers to questions, but rather think it only offers vague statements about our psychological states that anyone could relate to at some point in life. That is a misnomer.
In part 2, I give some actual examples of how I have used Prashna in my own personal life to answer very practical and useful questions, such as where a lost object is, and if I will find it or not.
Please enjoy these videos, and subscribe to keep updated on more to come. I have a lot of interesting videos planned for the future, so stay tuned!
(Also, forgive me for the low production value at present. I just began to make videos, but in time the audio and editing will improve. I know they are not the best quality videos on youtube for astrology at present, but I hope you can appreciate the content nonetheless.)
