Neither the father nor the mother nor the relations nor friends of a prince will desire so much his well being and that of his subjects as a true Jyotiṣaka”.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas).

Duṣkṛta (दुष्कृत) refers to the “bad (portions of karma)”, according to the Mṛgendrāgama Kriyāpāda verse 8.6-7.—Accordingly, “The śivadharmiṇī [initiation] is the root of success for the fruits of the Śaiva religion for the individual soul. There is another [kind of śivadharmiṇī] taught without the destruction of the body, up until the dissolution of the world. The remaining one is taught to be the lokadharmiṇī, for the purpose of [attaining the eight-fold supernatural powers] starting with aṇimā after the current life, after all the bad portions (duṣkṛta-aṃśa) [of karma] were destroyed at all reality levels”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.

It is by committing evil actions that one falls into the three bad destinies from which it is impossible to become free. Hearing this, beings give up thoughts of avarice and practice the perfection of generosity [...]”..
