BUDDHIST ASTROLOGY: Chart Interpretation from a Buddhist Perspective by Jhampa Shaneman & Jan Angel, fore. by H.H. the Dalai Lama
Use Buddhist wisdom and compassion to clarify your astrological readings Author Jhampa Shaneman combines his depth of experience in Tibetan Buddhism with that of contemporary Western astrologer Jan V. Angel in the first book to apply Buddhist practice to Western astrology.
While Buddhism is theologically and metaphysically compelling, it is also very practical. Within its tenets every psychological state is embraced, integrated, and brought to light. Buddhist Astrology bridges familiar astrological thinking with the idea of voidness, interdependence, and impermanence.
Explore how three key Buddhist wisdoms interact dynamically within Siddhartha's chart, an inspiring new theory applicable to all astrological charts. Learn how Buddhist precepts can inform and enrich your understanding of the planets, houses, and aspects, providing a wholistic interpretation of the birthchart from a Buddhist perspective.
Astrological and Buddhist concepts are presented in plain language, making this book a source of wisdom and insight for Buddhists, astrologers, and spiritual seekers alike. Look to the stars as you look within yourself on your journey toward enlightenment.
