Daivajna Vallabha: A Forgotten Classic on Hindu Horary Astrology
Daivajna Vallabha: A Forgotten Classic on Hindu Horary Astrology
Description
Publisher’s Note

“Daivajna Vallabha” is a rare work on Horary Astrology, expounded by the great Acharya Varaha Mihira. The work seems to be almost forgotten though copious references from the same are to be found in Prasna Marga, Prasna Vaishnava, Prasna Siromani and many other treatises of medieval times. Many of its verses have a striking resemblance with those found in Prasna Jnana and Shat Panchasika, the latter being by Prithuyasas, son of Varaha Mihira. While it is obvious that Bhattotpala has borrowed much material from this work. Shatpanchasika appears to be nothing but a terse abridgement of the verses of this book. We are thus led to believe that, this work which must have been very popular in ancient times fell into disuse under the influence of the later works like Prasna Jnana, Shatpanchasika and others which were shorter. The indebtedness of these works to Daivajna Vallabha in more than one way, is ample proof as to the authenticity and usefulness of the work. The book is divided into fifteen chapters and contains about 244 verses. The topics dealt with in three chapters are queries regarding (1) Procedure of putting a query (2) Auspicious and inauspicious matters (3) Gain and loss (4) Travels (5) Attack of enemies (6) On going abroad (7) Victory and defeat (8) Recovery from illness (9) Recovery of lost articles (10) Deciphering objects held in the fist or in mind of the querist (11) Rainfall (12) Marriage (13) Birth of children (14) Miscellaneous matters (15) Judgement From Ascendant.

The opening verse mentions Sripati as the author of the work while some of the verses occurring at the end state that Varaha Mihira composed this work. Also, the words of Siddh Vaishnava Dasa in Prasnavaisnava seem to prove conclusively that Varaha Mihira has been referred to as Hari in some works, and Sripati and Hari are only synonymous. Also according to the verse. Chapter XXVIII sloka 4 “occurring in Brihat Jataka point out clearly that Mihira has written a work on Horary Astrology. May be, it is not other than the book “Daivajna Vallabha” which is being placed before the public now. Attempt has been made to make the translation as lucid as possible, adding explanations, elaborate notes and illustrations wherever necessary. It is earnestly hoped that the book will be found extremely instructive and useful to the readers.

Errors which may have inadvertently crept in, may kindly be pointed out by the readers so that the same can be removed in future editions.

We are grateful to Mr. N. Balakrishnan for the help resolved in the publication of this work.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
