Department of Bhot Jyostish Vidya, Tibetan Astrology at Central University of Tibetan Studies was established in 1993 to preserve and promote the Tibetan tradition of Astrology, and conduct research in this field to enrich the science.
The Tibetan astrological sciences can be classified into three categories: astronomy (skar-rtsis) and elemental astrology ('byung-rtsis) and divination and prediction purpose (gyang char). Both skar-rtsis and 'byung-rtsi are blends of Indian, Persian, Greece and Buddhist traditions. Tibetan 'byung-rtsis is the ancient art of calculation and elucidation of celestial phenomena. The Tibetan system of astronomy, skar-rtsis, is the study of cosmology. This system draws from the Kalachakra Tantra. Therefore, it is the very important for yogis to master dkar-rtsis for the practice Kalachakra Tantra.
