एकम्प्यक्षरं यस्तु गुरुः शिष्यं प्रबोधयेत् ।
संसारे नास्ति तद् द्रव्यं दत्त्वा सो ऽनृणी भवेत् ॥
ekampyakṣaraṁ yastu guruḥ śiṣyaṁ prabodhayet ।
saṁsāre nāsti tad dravyaṁ dattvā so ‘nṛṇī bhavet ॥
In this world, there is no treasure that one can give which can repay the debt a disciple owes his guru for having taught him no more than a single syllable.
Lineage – Guru Sisya Parampara
ॐ गुरवे नमः
All Veda and Vedangas are learnt directly from a Guru and Guru-Sisya Parampara is most sacred. In Jyotish most lineages descend from Maharishi Parasara, the author of Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra, the compendium on Vedic Astrology
Pandit Sanjay Rath is my Jyotish Guru and he comes from a traditional family of astrologers from Bira Balabhadrapur Sasan village of Puri, Orissa, who trace their lineage back to Shri Achyuta Das (Sri Achyutananda). He studied under his uncle, late Pandit Kasinath Rath. His grandfather, the late Pandit Jagannath Rath, was the Jyotish Ratna of Orissa and authored many books on Jyotish.
Pandit Sanjay Rath has spearheaded dissemination of this traditional and sacred knowledge in a systematic and thorough manner throughout the globe with the help of his teaching institutions Devaguru Brhaspati Centre and Sri Jagannath center and has authored several books.
