Jyotish as Tool Jyotish is a diagnostic tool. When you are sick, you go to a doctor (in this case it is an astrologer). Doctor sends you for some tests and he analyses the lab reports to know about your energy imbalances. Like a doctor, an astrologer makes a kundali (astrological chart) to check energy imbalances in your life. Kundali, similar to the lab test report, is a tool to decipher present issues and problems (depending on present position of your life journey path i.e. stars and planetary positions with maha dasha and antar dasha etc.). As a doctor gives you medicines to bring a homeostasis in your health, the astrologer suggests use of various energy equalizer methods (parihar, mantras, yantra, rudraksha, and ratna i.e. gem stones etc.) to balance your life and solve your problems.
