Individual tutorship in Jyotish
Our system of teachings:
We have developed a system of distant learning for Jyotish,
to satisfy different types of students and interests, from
a beginner level for those who want to learn the basics to
the advanced level or to the one that wants to study and practice
it professionally. That’s why the course is divided
in several “modules”, of several lessons each.
It’s not just a correspondence or online course, but
it is a tutorship system and personal individual follow up
teacher-student relation. The idea is to keep the traditional
way of teaching by direct transmission teacher-student, while
at the same time taking advantage of the internet technology
and email to be able to do it from a distance.
Lessons will be sent one at the time with material to study
and exercises to do as homework. The student first reads and
studies the topic and can communicate with the teacher at
any moment through email to make questions or to clarify any
topic of the lesson if needed. Then, the student does the
homework and sends it to the teacher who will review, correct
it and evaluate if the student understood and assimilated
enough the lesson, when this happens next lesson is sent.
The first module consists of 10 lessons.
At the end of each module the student can optionally take
an online exam and, if he passes, gets a certificate as having
taken and understood that module. See costs
and requisites of the exam.
The amount of tutorial hours also is certified. Each lesson
can get up to 10 hours with the homework done, being able
to accumulate up to 100 hours in module one, depending on
the homework and how the student shows dedication and study.
Professional certification in Jyotish
For those that want to continue studying, after 600 hours
of tutorship (you get them through the different modules taken,
plus the homework assigned by the teacher) and after passing
a final exam (see requisites) the student get the title “Jyotish
Vid” (Knower of Jyotish) issued by us and a certificate
that shows that the student now can work as an astrologer,
doing consultations and charts readings.
Krishna’s courses and tutorial hours are also accepted
by CVA (Council of Vedic Astrology) in the United States,
which enables you to take their exam and get their certification
of this internationally renowned professional organization.
