Devaguru Bṛhaspati Center (DBC) is a subsidiary of Śrī Jagannāth Center (SJC) that was established (1998) in India with the objective of teaching in the tradition (jyotiṣa paraṁparā) of Śrī Acyutānanda Dāsa of Oḍisā. We emphasize and adhere to the wise teachings of the Maharṣi’s like Parāśara and Jaimini. Mentors are called jyotiṣa gurus who are well qualified and participate or head study centres.
SJC attempts to infuse the highest standards of integrity through the strict discipline of yogic practices of Vedic tradition including training in remedial measures. Meditation including dhyāna, dhāraṇa, and pranayama is taught to ensure spiritual discipline while classes on scriptures and Sanskrit ensure a balanced spiritual growth along with the knowledge of astrology.
SJC aims at continuing the time honoured guru-śiṣya tradition and is dedicated to the propagation of Vedic and Vedic Astrology learning covering the gamut of allied subjects including astrology, scriptural studies and mantra śāstra, numerology, vāstu śāstra, sakuna śāstra, svapna śāstra and yoga.
It concentrates on propagating research in the highest scholastic tradition in the different areas of jyotiṣa and aims at demystifying the subject by rescuing it from the hands of quacks, while restoring its dignity and prestige that it enjoyed previously.
SJC has numerous students around the world who are connected through e-lists (Achyuta Gurukula, Varāhamihira, Vedic Astrology) and free online classes where there are intense discussions on a variety of issues. In more recent times, numerous study circles and centres have started around the world.
We believe that Śrī Jagannāth Mahāprabhu (Kṛṣṇa in the form of the Universal Teacher as adored and worshipped in Puri, India) will always guide our intellect in this holy mission.
