Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has since 1992, started Jyotisha Bharati
by merging the century old BOMBAY ASTROLOGICAL SOCIETY
(Estd. 18-12-1892 and affiliated to the Bhavan since 1944)
in order to propagate Astrology -A science based on Astronomy, Astro-Physics and Astro Mathematics.


The ancient lore of India is unique, for many branches, its attempt was to probe the mysteries of life and death. Of its lore, the most amazing has been the science of Jyotisha, Astrology.

The lore is doubtless fascinating. From very early days, I have taken interest in friends and astrologers trying their skill on the planetary chart of the heavens at the moment of my birth, for that is what a horoscope is. I have never closed my mind to the science.

In condemning astrology, we shut our face against a science, with a predetermined vision. If explored with patience, honesty and skill, it might perhaps break through the barrier which separates life from death, the present from the future; it might give an insight into man's endeavour and his ultimate destiny.
Dr. K. M. Munshi
