Dr. Shanker Adawal
His passion has been astrology, a passion that fell his way in childhood, a zeal that he picked from his father. As a child he often saw his father a bureaucrat and an astrologer getting admiration from many eminent astrologers, which inspired him. He used to spend long hours participating in intellectual debates that his father used to have with his friends and fellow astrologers. With thousands of books in his library, free consultations through magazines, television, portals and newspapers around the globe, he continues his journey on his passion. He has been felicitated and awarded for his contribution in this field. He also has keen interest in Human Rights. He can be contacted at connectingminds@gmaiI.com
The notion that astrologers can unfold lives and reveal what waits at the next bend is a thought that comes to all and populist claims have inspired the author to come up with a series of books that will discuss the various aspects in astrology, putting together the research and findings by various groups and the experience gained during his journey. The purpose of the encyclopedia is an attempt to put a clear understanding of the process of astrology, taking into account the first basic principles and dealing with different topics. The encyclopedia which would consist of over eighteen books is intended to be brought out over a period of two years. These would cover the basics in astrology and then go on to the predictive techniques, the nadi astrology, tajik, yogas, nakshatras, rectification of birth time, vargas, dashas, mundane prashna, muhurta, remedy and other aspects of interest. The advantage of this would be that both students and those who want to pursue research can progress the understanding of this science in a systematic manner: Also the complete set will be of great value to those in India and abroad who want to understand various levels and will give them the flexibility of dwelling into the complexities in a coherent manner: With the growing interest to learn this science in various countries, the readers there will find this series of books very useful.
This is the first book in the series and is the most important. The foundation is based on the principles of basic astrology propounded by various schools of thought. The book covers signs, their impact, the planetary impact in each sign, the role of depositors, details on each planet and their relationship when in aspect and in the divisional charts as also the complexities they can pose. This book attempts at conveying that the basic importance has to be given to the planets, their placement and various relationship as a result of the same. The yogas, dasha, nakshatras etc. will be dealt in the other books that follow, but all have to be applied keeping in mind the first basic principles that are being enumerated in this book.
This is the first attempt to present “Encyclopedia on Vedic Astrology” with a view to enhancing knowledge based utility of the subject for both the students & the scholars.
Needless to mention all possible efforts have been made to consult the available literature as well as experience of the contributors has been put in so as to present the best update on the subject.
In this effort therefore, broadly speaking the effects of planets, signs & houses as result of their mutual relationship “Sambandh” resulting in the current state of affairs of life can be interpreted. In this back drop as I present this book which will be followed by other books as part of Encyclopedia which shall cover all possible aspects & tools of predictive astrology.
This book exhaustively explains about each Planet, the principles, the indicators, the impact in each sign, impact in each house and divisional charts. The endeavour is to provide an insight into the judgement of each house. The idea of having this as the first book is that people forget that the house, planet and the sign have a major impact in any prediction done. I would desire that the readers should go through this book thoroughly as the planets, signs and their relationship to our way of living is extremely important. It is also important that all interpretation of house should be done with reference to the current Desh, Kaal and Patra.
In my endeavour to bring this series of books the guiding spirit has been my father, a bureaucrat and a great astrologer of his time, Late Shri K C Saxena and the blessings of Banke Bihari.
