This year JSP Year-1, we have quite a schedule as we aim to complete the entire set of sutra in the Contact Classes at Udaipur. While this will give you a very solid foundation for the remaining part of the Jaimini Scholar Program, our real aim is to send the soul power into a great trajectory of search for the truth.
We are now into the sutras of the Jaimini Upadesha and I am sure you have started enjooying the challenge involved in decoding them as well as gradually getting started with their application. This time we start with drsti given in sutra 1.1.2 and others. While Rashi drsti has been taught by Parashara in a whole chapter in BPHS, some still call this Jaimini drsti. How inconsiderate of them not to give due respect to the greatest master of Jyotish – Parashara.
Yet we have to see what exactly is Maharshi Jaimini adding to the teachings of Parashara.
What exactly is the Jaimini Scholar Program and what does it include? Why is it that a syllabus has not been posted? Why so much secrecy!
Anyway, we need to know how much we have to study and what are we looking at during this first Academic Year JSP-1. So lets take a look at the Sutra. There is a lot of guesswork going on about what it includes including lots of debates.

Subject: Understanding the Tradition
We can understand only when we know what the tradition is about. What is Utkaliya Vaishnava and how is it so very different from Dakshina (South) Vaishnavas or even the Gaudiya. To do so first we learn a little about the parama guru Shri Achyutananda Dasa.
The final assessment of Jaimini Scholar students, after completing all 4 Adhyayas of the JUS Course with their personal Jaimini Scholar Mentor, will be by oral examination (Viva Voce), in the tradition of our Jyotish parampara.
The first point to note is that assessment is not about pass or fail. Either the student is ready to become a Certified Jaimini Scholar or not.
