Book Description
Back of the Book

Dr Shanker Adawal, the author, is a management professional. He has over the last thirty three years worked with various prestigious corporates in India and abroad. His experience of working with L&T, Xerox, Tata, Nortel and with a leading energy major of the country, along with a Jyotishacharya from Varanasi gives him the perfect blend of intellect and logic. The son of a bureaucrat father and an educationist mother, he is a graduate in Economics (Hons), Masters in Business Economics from Delhi University, PhD in Economics and complementing his skills with software and other leadership programs from Singapore and other Dr. Shanker Adawal countries.

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@gmail.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 second book in the series and is very important. The book covers five hundred yogas such as Rajyogas, Dhanyogas, Nabhasyogas, yogas related to the Sun and the Moon, trikone houses, parivartan yogas, yogas for marriage & proger. Yogas for penury, ayur and arishta yogas.



Each chapter of yogas explains the importance of strength and time of fructifications through illustrations.

Astrology and the yoga’s formed by planets and other integrated factors are an important aspect in predictive astrology. Yoga means joining. This is what is depicted by planets in the chart by there conjunction, aspect, placement and relationship with other astrological parameters.

. Yoga’s are important and perhaps the most misinterpreted aspect while an astrologer reads the chart. A large number of yoga’s are outlined in every horoscope. They all depict great results but when it does not happen there is criticism and queries.

Through this book we have commenced by defining yoga and also explaining the factors that determines the strength of the yoga. The strength of yoga is linked to the planets. We have dealt in details both the in evaluating the strength of the planets and factors that influence a yoga in making it weak or strong.

The book dwells into the types of yoga’s which are due to the placement of planets in signs (Nabhas Yogas) to those that arise due to conjunction of planets - the Raj Yogas and Dhan Yogas and other special yoga’s. It has been kept in mind to explain the important yoga’s and this has been done by illustrations at each point.

Also important yoga’s related with Sun and Moon have been explained. Yoga’s arising because of the involvement of Trikona houses and Praivartan or yoga’s due to exchange of planets have been dwelled in separate chapters. Simultaneously the book illustrates the yoga’s which give intelligence, marriage & progeny, health, longevity. Also the yoga’s causing penury has been explained along with the other aspects of life that are relevant and matter of concern to an individual.

This book is a result of experience and research of a group and thus has dealt with this subject in a scientific manner. Importance has been given in each chapter to explain the yoga’s in the right perspective.

We have dealt with the importance of understanding the strength, the period of operation of yoga and the factors that can countervail the impact. From our research we have seen that the position and degrees of the planets are important which have been mentioned and explained.

The book in each chapter of yoga’s gives illustrations. It explains the importance of strength and the time of there fructification. Each yoga has a different impact in various areas of life and that has been dwelled in details.

The analysis of yoga’s is important to evaluate the foundation of the horoscope in various life segments. The strength and time of there giving results has been explained in details. This book will be a treasure for those who are studying astrology. This book I would suggest is Must for the students of astrology.

I must and thanking my father Late K.C. Saksena, who is my inspiration and a devoted astrologer and Bake Bihari of Vrindavan.
