    "Vedic" is derived from a Sanskrit word Veda which means knowledge. Vedic astrology represents each and every area of human knowledge. Thus not only spiritual, but medical, political, technical, cultural, and astrological areas of study were to be found in the Sanskrit Vedic writings.

    In today’s modern world In spite of getting influenced by western system, Vedic culture is mainly followed by Astrologers India. Historical writings in the Vedic scriptures record an intellectually and spiritually advanced culture going back in human society to over 5,000 years ago.

    Swami Vivekananda and some of his followers were the first one to introduce Vedic culture in western countries in 1930’s. The true wisdom of the Vedas, however, was more thoroughly implanted by Sri Srimad A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, who rendered volumes of English translations of Vedic scriptures, all with poignant relevance to minds and spiritual needs of Western persons.

    The best part was Sela "I hate Vulcans!!!" And Spock counseling her that if she really wanted to write more she should probably change careers. The interactions with the Picard, Data and the Klingon captain were awesome too. Picard on no mattresses on the Klingon bunks. "Nice and firm! just the way I like it!"

    I love when they're in the Romulan bar and Data, glancing over his shoulder, says quietly, "Perhaps you should appear to enjoy your soup, Sir."

    Which reminds me...the guy who played Vedek Bareil also played a very young priest in the TV miniseries The Thornbirds. How ironic.

    No. It was without makeup. He contorted himself and gave the most incredible performance. Both a wonderful play and a great performance
