Garga muni says
One who has learnt jyotishya samhita and is e pert in sidhdhanta vibhaaga , if the king of that place does not honour him , his kingdom will soon perish and he himself will be reason for it
People adept in indriyanigraha , do not have asakti in women , they might have got relief from sansar bandhan , they might have lost asakti in ashram taken sanyasa Yet even such people will show asakti in knowing future from a vidwaan jyotishi
Absence of jyotishi is like lampless night , day without Sun , a person who does not believe in astrology is like traveller looking for path in deep jungle on amavasya night .
Without jyotish shastra how is it posdible to know muhurta tithi nakshatra rutu ayana ?
One who knows rahasya secrets of yudhdha shastra , yagnya yaaga agni jwala laxan shastra one who is adept at , one who can with mantra shakti give right advice to place properly the rajtantra only he can be called a daivagnya jyotishi
Such a persons words never fail
If one wants to become famous one wants win , wealth success fame honour and if one wants to enjoy his life , for all these comes by advice of jyotishi only
One must not stay in a place where there is no jyotishi
Those who know no shastra but try to tell astrology saying they have intuition not only do they go to naraka but also those who seek their advice befall bad luck and reach nether worlds
Such nonastrologers sooner or later get entangled into controversy and will face samaajghatauk apavada !
Only devabhakta vinamra prucchaka ( querist ) must be given answer . And an astrologer should be sadguni satyvanta vinayvant vedaadhyanyut ganitshastra nipuna ,unnat bhavanasheelsampanna vaagmi .
For such a jyotishi where he stays he destroys sins of the people around ,
He relieves from narak koopa and jyotishi himself gets bramhaloka , and then moxa !
Such is the mahima of jyotishya shastra
