Description

Preface

 

Vedic Astrology like any other branch of Vedic knowledge aimed at enhancing human welfare by ameliorating sufferings.

With this grand mission, sage parasara (one of those grand eighteen sages like Narada, Vashishta, Jaimini etc.) authored this encyclopeadia text in the principles of Vedic Astrology designated as Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra (BPHS in brief). As the name connotes the text comprises of basis principles of Vedic Astrology in a comprehensive way. It essentially deals with delineation of life from conception to death; the cardinal underlying principles being those celestial condition (planetary position and pattern/combination) at birth influence to determine the pattern of whole life of human beings.

In this backdrop profound use has been made of all astrological clues lying scattered in various mythological and allied scriptures including yoga tantra etc., besides all the published material on the subject. Texture difference have been pointed out and appropriate text accepted. Hence efforts have been made to make this publication the most comprehensive as all available text has been included so as to preclude any additional consultation. A detailed glossary of these texts shall be presented at the end of the second & concluding part of the book.

Astrology is like any other science, however its practice would always remain an art as the parameters of man environments and times lead to different interpretation in different parts of the world. I say so on the basis of my experience/practice through two decades over which principles laid down in BPHS progressively became lucid and amazingly true. A lot more is yet to be done especially in the face of the fact that past deeds and predestination have a definite role to play. Hence it is only through the study of Vedic Astrology that the secret of fate and freewill can be deciphered on a logical plane.

The Principles of Vedic Astrology are intricate and yet simple. At times during initial interpretation they may seem to be contradictory but really they are not, and at this stage, the teacher (the Guru) plays a key role and no book can replace him. However, a limited effort has been made to present appropriate practical example (horoscopes) both to illustrate the principles and resolve the text. The fear of the book's becoming bulky has tended to hold me back from giving more examples. But to compensate for this deficiency soon the readers shall have a series of books like the following dealing with special principles so far not published or even deciphered by the common student or practitioner of astrology:

1. Parasara & Harmonic Charts
2. Role of Retrograde Planets in Astrology

These books have included two decades of research and thousands of horoscopes to affirm my belief in replicable techniques of predictive Vedic Astrology.

As I present this English version of BPHS, I must hasten to record my sincere thanks to Prof. DPS Chauhan, but for whose help in making this translation closest to concept, the book may not have been in this form.

Formal thanks to Mr. URS STROBEL & Mr. SIBELT MEYER of MVU would be grossly inadequate for their informal and continuous inspiration propelling me to take up this work. I shall ever remain grateful to them.

I must also thank Pt. Krishan Kant Sharma, Mr. P.K. Vasudeva, N.C. Saxena and H.C. Agarwal who have been helpful and supportive in so many ways. Mr. Anil Tiwari draws special thanks for his help in drawing the birth charts.

If the readers find the book of some use; I think I have thanked Mr. Narinder Sagar (Prop. Sagar Publications) for all his untiring and thoughtful encouragement. May God bless him.

I am aware that the very human touch makes the things imperfect; Hence I shall be grateful to receive suggestions to improve the value of the book by incorporating the necessary changes in future.

Preface

 

Vedic Astrology like any other branch of Vedic knowledge aimed at enhancing human welfare by ameliorating sufferings.

With this grand mission, sage parasara (one of those grand eighteen sages like Narada, Vashishta, Jaimini etc.) authored this encyclopeadia text in the principles of Vedic Astrology designated as Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra (BPHS in brief). As the name connotes the text comprises of basis principles of Vedic Astrology in a comprehensive way. It essentially deals with delineation of life from conception to death; the cardinal underlying principles being those celestial condition (planetary position and pattern/combination) at birth influence to determine the pattern of whole life of human beings.

In this backdrop profound use has been made of all astrological clues lying scattered in various mythological and allied scriptures including yoga tantra etc., besides all the published material on the subject. Texture difference have been pointed out and appropriate text accepted. Hence efforts have been made to make this publication the most comprehensive as all available text has been included so as to preclude any additional consultation. A detailed glossary of these texts shall be presented at the end of the second & concluding part of the book.

Astrology is like any other science, however its practice would always remain an art as the parameters of man environments and times lead to different interpretation in different parts of the world. I say so on the basis of my experience/practice through two decades over which principles laid down in BPHS progressively became lucid and amazingly true. A lot more is yet to be done especially in the face of the fact that past deeds and predestination have a definite role to play. Hence it is only through the study of Vedic Astrology that the secret of fate and freewill can be deciphered on a logical plane.

The Principles of Vedic Astrology are intricate and yet simple. At times during initial interpretation they may seem to be contradictory but really they are not, and at this stage, the teacher (the Guru) plays a key role and no book can replace him. However, a limited effort has been made to present appropriate practical example (horoscopes) both to illustrate the principles and resolve the text. The fear of the book's becoming bulky has tended to hold me back from giving more examples. But to compensate for this deficiency soon the readers shall have a series of books like the following dealing with special principles so far not published or even deciphered by the common student or practitioner of astrology:

1. Parasara & Harmonic Charts
2. Role of Retrograde Planets in Astrology

These books have included two decades of research and thousands of horoscopes to affirm my belief in replicable techniques of predictive Vedic Astrology.

As I present this English version of BPHS, I must hasten to record my sincere thanks to Prof. DPS Chauhan, but for whose help in making this translation closest to concept, the book may not have been in this form.

Formal thanks to Mr. URS STROBEL & Mr. SIBELT MEYER of MVU would be grossly inadequate for their informal and continuous inspiration propelling me to take up this work. I shall ever remain grateful to them.

I must also thank Pt. Krishan Kant Sharma, Mr. P.K. Vasudeva, N.C. Saxena and H.C. Agarwal who have been helpful and supportive in so many ways. Mr. Anil Tiwari draws special thanks for his help in drawing the birth charts.

If the readers find the book of some use; I think I have thanked Mr. Narinder Sagar (Prop. Sagar Publications) for all his untiring and thoughtful encouragement. May God bless him.

I am aware that the very human touch makes the things imperfect; Hence I shall be grateful to receive suggestions to improve the value of the book by incorporating the necessary changes in future.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
