Credentials - Michael Laughrin


Michael Laughrin was originally self-taught in Western astrology, and later, Vedic astrology. In the beginning of his studies, he read one Jyotish book per day. After reading the book Astrology of the Hindus in 1986, he started making a living interpreting Vedic astrological charts. He suddenly had profound support of nature. Jyotish is his dharma (life work).

Michael has a Jyotish library of more than 150 books and 150 tapes of seminars, including rare tapes of lectures by Jyotish teacher Narendra Desai (now deceased).

Michael is pleased to have the opportunity to give back to the Jyotish / Vedic Astrology community through his free bi-monthly e-newsletter, Michael Laughrin's North American Jyotish Newsletter.

The Chakras

Chakras: In the last few years, Michael cultivated the ability to examine chakras from a distance. Chakras are the energy centers in the body. People have seven chakras (see picture). The condition of these chakras are directly linked to the person's state of health and well-being.

Refinement of the Senses

Meditation is a non-religious path to enlightenment that Michael has been on for more than 35 years. He has meditated every day, twice a day, faithfully. He has meditated for more than 20,000 hours.
