VENUE: The Theosophical Society, 3 Rheede street (just off Kloof st.)

FEE: CAA members free; Visitors R50

Elna’s topic is Tithi Pravesh Chakra, which is an annual birth chart for the moment of birth.  It is based on the Tithi (vedic day) return every year. This differs to a solar return as a Tithi is based on the luni-solar calendar, whereby the Moon and Sun is taken in to account.

This promises to be an informative and thought provoking lecture!

About Elna:
Elna has been studying and practising as a Vedic Astrologer for the past 10-12 years.  Her interest in Astrology was ignited at a young age, and she completed her Western Astrology studies with Rod Suskin in the mid 90’s.

After completing a Yoga Teachers’ Course, and a course as an Ayurvedic Health Care Professional at Ananda Kutir Ashram, Elna turned to Vedic Astrology.  Her interest fired up anew, Elna started studying Vedic Astrology with Komilla Sutton, and received her diploma from her in India at Chidambaram in 2007.

A teacher, and eternal student …. Elna is currently studying advanced techniques under the guidance of Pandit Sanjay Rath and his wife Sarbani Rath. Pandit Sanjay Rath is a world re-known teacher and astrologer, and is from a lineage of astrologers from the Puri district in East India.  Current subjects include Jaimini Sutras, Mantra Shastra and Parasara Hora Shastra.

In 2013 Elna presented a lecture at a Vedic Astrology Conference held in Pondicherry in India.  In 2012 she gave an introductory course in Vedic Astrology at Ananda Kutir Ashram.  In 2011 Elna was invited to address  a group of Indian Vedic Astrologers at an International Conference held in Johannesburg.

A reminder that the 20th Feb is our LAST event at the Theosophical society.

We are looking forward to a great catchup with all our CAA members!
