An essential book for the learning of Indian Astrology This book is a standalone text and can be used for mastering the concepts of Indian Astrology.
Prof. N. E. Muthuswamy has written and compiled about 60 books on Astrology in Malayalam and 6 books in English. His Magnum Opus Enclyclopaedia of Indian Astrology in 2 volumes is a real contribution to the Astrological literature and remains a basic reference book on Astrology. As President of the Jyotish Prachara sabha, he taught and groomed about 2000 senior astrologers in Kerala.
Astrology is the study of human behaviour and experiences on the backdrop of time and space. It is the result of meditative intelligence and extra sensorial experience of great seers unattainable and unimaginable to the present contemporary intellengentia advocating a materialistic base for the study of sciences and treating astrology as a system of mere fortune telling.
Astrology is also a science where human experiences and behaviour have been analysed threadbare and dicta propounded which can be verified and substantiated to the core. It is true that today this branch of study is not able to explain and prove its dicta by laboratory methods as is being practised in other materialistic sciences. But materialistic sciences also have their own limitations when they confront with the human experiences abstract in nature. Modern sciences have invented that when the male sperm and female ovum meet in the womb the living embryo comes into being. This is really a great invention to the credit of medical science. But it has no explanation for the simple query that why some couples, healthy in all respects remain childless in spite of undergoing all the geriatric treatment. In such cases of limitation of experimental sciences astrology has got many explanations and reasons and remedies to offer. The numerous dicta propounded there are being experienced in day to day life. Can any modern science say by laboratory experimental methods as at what date one's marriage will take place, or at what time somebody will get a job or will build a house or go abroad. But astrology can pinpointed and in unequivocal terms answer these queries with almost 80% accuracy. Of course the person making the predictions are not able to explain the rationale cause and effect of such results in a manner convincing to the inquisitive intelligence.
People at present prepared to accept Astronomy and not Astrology because the former is visible and the later is not visible. Actually Astrology starts where Astronomy ends .As far as human experiences are concerned both studies are complementing to each other. Astrological findings are based on Astronomical and Mathematical and Biological Principles. It is a sad fact that their connecting links could not be established. It is quite unfortunate that Astrology is relegated to the back ground in spite of its usefulness to man in his day-to-day life.
Even Adivasi life style in India is designed and patterned on the lines sanctioned by Astrology. It cannot be and should not be separated from the life of Indians. Its literature is precious and pregnant with the treasure of wisdom. It is to be explored, studied, assimilated, substantiated and propagated. Those who question this wonderful result of ancient wisdom are advised to understand it fully, apply it to their own life and if it proves fallacious then only to question it.
The sad fact remains that no intensive effort has been made or methodology adopted to teach this subject to their Master Citizens by the planners and Administrators of Education who do not care to have the mind and vision to include the study of Astrology in the curriculum. They lack the acumen to realise the worthiness and richness of ‘Parasara’ ‘Jaimini’ ‘Garga` etc. They preferred Chaucer. Milton, Johnson, Macaulay etc. to Parasara, Narada, Susrutha, Bharatha, Chanakya etc. because these were not English. One can understand the Alien Administrations neglecting the Indian seers. But it is a paradox that even after India got independence the planners have not realised this unpardonable lapse and irreparable dam-age done to Indian wisdom.
There has been a dearth of good books on Astrology which present materials in a lucid, simple and intelligent style, avoiding technical jargon and quotation from source books. In the present book the materials have been arranged in simple style comprising of smaller units in a systematic and comprehensive manner to enable the learner to learn astrology. Starting from fundamental principles of astrology, the lessons take the learner step by step to the deeper understating of all the technical aspects of Astrology.
I hope this book will be accepted by everyone and will be found more useful in understanding the basic principles of Astrology and thereby making fruitful my humblest effort in propagating Indian Astrology.
