Howard (Hamsa) Beckman
Hamsa is a master Vedic Astrologer with over 35 years experience. During this time he spent many years in India studying Bhakti Yoga and the Vedic Sciences. He now spends much of his time travelling and teaching the interconnection of the “Three Sister Sciences” of Ayurveda, Yoga & Vedic (Jyotish) Astrology.
The oldest astrology known to man, it is said to be far more accurate for predictive purposes and gives an understanding of the soul’s journey from one incarnation to another.
The heart of all Vedic sciences, the inner meaning that Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology all share, is that of "atma vidya", knowledge of the soul. Ancient yoga philosophy urges every human being to ask themselves "Who am I?, What is the real goal of life?" Vedic Astrology gives us a road map, a valuable tool for charting our course in life. Through the study of a Vedic horoscope, one's karma is revealed. It opens the book on our present, as well as our future, giving us the specifics of events, experiences and situations that will manifest in our lives. Yet it also details the abilities, talents and tendencies that we have developed during our many previous incarnations. Each one of us is capable of positively shaping both the unfolding of our present, as well as future destinies. Yet doing so requires knowledge, knowledge of our "self", as well as our past, present and future. Thus Vedic astrology unlocks the mystery of reincarnation, the transmigration of the soul from one birth to the next, and through the many planetary systems of our universe.
Hamsa has clients and students from all parts of the world, guiding them in the right actions to take for success in life, their career paths, relationships and family affairs, and in striking a balance between the material necessities of human life and the spiritual ones.
He has earned the nickname “the astrologer’s astrologer” due to the fact that many professional consulting astrologers consult with him on their own horoscope’s as well as his insights on those of their clients.
Vedic astrology utilizes natural healing methods, such as mantra, yantra and gemstone therapy, to balance and harmonize negative planetary forces that effect our lives. Hamsa specializes in these remedial measures, and clients are able to also receive recommendations that will help them to attain specific goals in all facets of life.
He has authored the books “An Introduction to Vedic Astrology – Spiritual Science of the Ancients”, “Mantras, Yantras & Fabulous Gems – Healing Secrets of the Ancient Vedas” and “Vibrational Healing with Gems”, as well as two courses on Jyotish Gem Therapy and Ayurvedic Gem Therapy. The latter was co-written with his wife Yogamaya.
Hamsa has a unique ability to relay this esoteric knowledge in a practical way, allowing his students to understand the core meaning and secrets of this ancient science of divination. His astrological clients return to him year after year for annual updates due to his accurate and unfailingly helpful insights into their lives.
Hamsa lives in Ocala, Florida and is Director of The Vedic Cultural Fellowship. He is an animal advocate, a vegan and helps to run Ocala Equine Rescue in Ocala, Florida.
