Description
Preface to the Fourth Edition

The Elements of Vedic Astrology has been acclaimed as the most systematic, comprehensive and compact work on the Parashari system of astrology. For the past over one decade, its supremacy has remained unchallenged. It remains a standard book for those seeking initiation into Vedic astrology while, for the more advanced and the researcher in astrology, it serves as a reference book. This work has verily been appreciated by the student and the teacher of astrology alike. It retains a stature against which all other similar works on Vedic astrology are judged.

The present edition has been completely revised and enlarged. A whole new chapter on the Sudarshana Chakra of Parashara has been added at the end. The Sudarshana Chakra method of analysis is supposed to provide a highly accurate assessment of a chart. It is hoped that the inclusion of this chapter in the present edition will enable the serious student of Vedic astrology to markedly enhance his predictive ability.

Preface to the First Edition

Teaching astrology to highly educated and elite classes of students in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, New Delhi has imposed great demands on the teaching faculty here to maintain and upgrade their quality of teaching. A direct consequence of this has been the production of several high standard books by the faculty members. Stress has been placed on illustrating the various astrological principles and techniques by suitable examples. The scientific basis of astrology has been proved repeatedly by illustrating the principles which give replicable results.

Study of Vedic astrology demands an elementary knowledge of astronomy and some basic techniques concerned with the preparation of horoscopic charts. Understanding the static promise in a horoscope, and he dynamic aspect of timing the fruition of such promise, are areas which demand deeper study. Vedic astrology has at its disposal innumerable techniques which can be employed for virtually infallible results. Not all techniques are to be used by every practitioner of Vedic astrology on all horoscopes. But a knowledge of most of these is desirable. Eventually, each astrologer develops his standard technique which suits him the best.

Elements of Vedic Astrology is directed towards providing the basic principles of Vedic astrology. It highlights the scientific basis of astrology. The initial few chapters are directed towards clarifying the fundamental principles of astrology. The basic concepts of astronomy as the relevant to a study of astrology are described clearly. An example of the highly evolved ancient Indian method of teaching has been taken from a celebrated scripture; it highlights the simple yet lucid style of imparting scientific-spiritual instruction to a disciple. Some important areas of astrology concerned with the characteristics of rashis, houses and planets, the nature of planets, and the significations of houses and planets, have all been described in great details. Two chapters have been devoted to the techniques of casting a horoscopic chart. It may be pertinent to point out here that an understanding of the manual method of casting of a horoscope has vast advantages and must be mastered fully. Reliance may later be placed on computerized calculations if so desired.

Subtle areas of astrology, like the planetary states (Avasthas) and the sub-planets, have been discussed briefly and areas for further research indicated. The use of vargas, or subtle divisions, has been explained. The Vimshottari dasha system has been dealt with in details while the Yogini dasha has been described briefly in order to provide an additional confirmatory tool. A vast amount of information gathered from standard classical texts of astrology in respect of the placement of planets in different houses or rashis, and the various planetary influences on them, has been provided.

The stature of a horoscope is reflected in the presence or absence of the all-important planetary yogas in a horoscope. These must be recognized at the outset, and their quality judged, in order to assess the potential inherent in a chart. Three full chapters have been devoted to this aspect along with illustrative examples.

Determination of longevity is a tricky area in astrology. Some standard methods of calculating the span of life along with their pitfalls have been described.

Specialised predictive areas of Vedic astrology have been touched briefly in order to acquaint the reader of such additional predictive tools. These include medical astrology, horary astrology, transits, annual charts and Astakavarga. One chapter has been devoted to the Muhurta or electional aspect of astrology. Greater understanding of these areas necessitates further study, an aspect which has been hinted at appropriately.

The book deals solely with the Parashari system which is the most prevalent system of Vedic astrology. No attempt has been made to transgress into the other parallel system known as the Jaimini system which is less in vogue, is less well understood, and needs a lot of research before being universally applicable.

The work is primarily meant for those who want to learn astrology from the very beginning, and pursue it seriously in a scientific manner. It will serve as a stepping stone for those who want to eventually go into specialized branches of astrology. It is also aimed to help those who intend to indulge in astrological research in hitherto unexplored areas like the vargas, the sub-planets, or the planetary states, etc.

My efforts will be more than rewarded if this work fulfils its intended aims.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
