The 12 Signs of The Zodiac

Sri Bhaktisiddhanta Vaibhava is truly an excellent book. Actually, we will find a pastime recounted in it where Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati would sometimes find his disciple’s charts lying around the ashrama and would read them, thereby proving that indeed he was a Jataka as well.

Vraja Kishor ji,

““One of his pupils” means one of Bhaktisiddhanta’s pupils? So the argument was not made directly by Bhaktisiddhanta, but by his pupil?”

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta would very quite often have one of his disciples write arguments on his behalf. In fact, the Brahma-Samhita we attribute to Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati was actually written by one of his disciples. This was standard protocol for Srila Bhaktisiddhanta.

““The precession of the equinox, … is made from a fixed point of the zodiac [in Vedic astronomy].” Is an astronomically perplexing statement [i.e. astronomically impossible, a contradiction in terms],”

It seems you misread the quote from post from comment # 17:

“One of his pupils published a tract showing conclusively the inaccuracies of the reformers, that the matter rested on the precision of the equinox, which in Vedic astronomy is made from a fixed point of the zodiac.”

The key word you misread was “precision”. It is not “precession” as you wrote in your response, which completely changes the meaning. Changing it back to “precision” reconciles what you saw as “an astronomically perplexing statement.” With all due respect, my humble advice is that you pay more attention to detail. I have read some of your writings and books on astrology and the grammar is very sloppy.

Your servant,

Vyasadeva dasa
