Personal Sun Salutation Mantra

India’s Vedic astrology (Jyotish) is one of the oldest astrological systems in the world. It has many famous astrologer/astronomer names ~ these were not considered separate systems in ancient India, which has no history of an antipathy towards science or scientists.
The fifth century astrologer and mathematician, Āryabhaṭa, was the first to discover that all the planets in our solar system revolved around the Sun, rather than the earth. (I know, we were all taught that it was Galileo that first discovered this, but really, it was Āryabhaṭa.) His remarkable mathematical works were translated into Arabic and taken to the Middle East during the Islamic Golden Age (c. 820 CE). If you check out the wiki entry on this remarkable man, you will see their comment: “For his explicit mention of the relativity of motion, he also qualifies as a major early physicist…”
Jyotish, appreciated the personal relationship we each have with each of the planets and developed a system of ascribing a specific personal mantra based on the details of one’s birth.
If you are participating in the challenge, and would like to do it with your own personal Surya Namaskar Mantra, our Jyotish astrologer (Swami Ambikananda) will be happy to send it to you.

Yogini Laura knew that once lockdown came into force, our fund-raising would suffer a blow. She then went into action. She opened a ‘Just Giving’ page and requested donations for her hair-shave. In the process she raised a whopping £1,280 and all the funds came to Mukti.
