Astrology : What's that?


Scientifically, the effect of the gravitation forces of the sun, moon and the planets is equivalent to the gravitational force exerted by a piece of pea suspended in air 20 metres away. It is totally absurd to say that the gravitational force of these celestial bodies will have any effect on our lives.

Quoting "Autobiography of a Yogi", Yogananda says that astrology is such a great science that even a real astrologist who can see the future of a person instantly on seeing the face will never ever dare to tell that person his/her future because no real gyani will ever play with the will of God. He will let everything happen on its own.

So all those people who hold the so called post of astrologist or palmists are mere frauds who have discovered a great technique of extracting great money from the naive and gullible people of India.

One should be rational and scientific. I am glad to note that our former President Mr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam clearly wrote in his autobiography, "Wings of Fire", that he cannot understand the reason behind astrology and he does not believe it.
