Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: The effect of Samvatsaras: Satvargas
Yuva (युव) refers to the ninth saṃvatsara (“jovian year)” in Vedic astrology.—The native who is blessed with birth in the ‘samvatsara’ of ‘yuva’ is the direct incarnation of happiness, is endowed with good qualities, is courteous, peaceful, bountiful or generous, full of erudition or learning, long-lived, has a very hard and firm body and is contented.
According with Jataka Parijata, the person born in the year yuva (1995-1996 AD) will be covetous, fickle-minded, ill-tempered, possessing a constitution, little liable to illness and acquainted with the healing art.
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). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.
Vaishnavism (Vaishava dharma)Source: Pure Bhakti: Arcana-dipika - 3rd Edition
Yuva (युव) is the ninth of sixty years (saṃvatsara) in the Vedic lunar calendar according to the Arcana-dīpikā by Vāmana Mahārāja (cf. Appendix).—Accordingl, There are sixty different names for each year in the Vedic lunar calendar, which begins on the new moon day (Amāvasyā) after the appearance day of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu (Gaura-pūrṇimā), in February or March. The Vedic year [viz., Yuva], therefore, does not correspond exactly with the Christian solar calendar year.
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
