Famous Jyotishi Jagjit Uppal says: "Astrology presupposes destiny. It is believed that at the time of birth of an individual, his/her, life pattern is determined."
Dr. Prem Kumar Sharma, another well-known Vedic astrologer, believes in "the Indian tenets, which say that the actions of our past lives determine the present and on the whole the events in our life are predetermined by the combination of stellar positions at the time of our conception, birth and then at the time of the happening."
According to India's most celebrated astrologer Bejan Daruwalla, "Astrology is a mirror to life. It is certainly not 100% correct... But the chances of predictions coming right are good. Also, character analysis of Astrology often helps. Astrology is not a crutch. It is to be used to heal one's self."
"Astrology is not magic! It's purely based on astronomy and mathematics. It is the most beautiful palace of knowledge with the most puzzling entrance," says Vedic astrologer Asish Kumar Das.
