The encouraging reception of the last edition is responsible for this revised edition of the Sripatipaddhati. Sripati appears to have lived in the first half of the eleventh century A. D. He was a Brahmin descended from the sage Kasyapa: his grand-father was Nagadeva. Sripati was a reputed mathematician, an astronomer whose opinions wete said to have been held in great respect even by Bhaslara, and author of about nine treatises including 2iadiq (Sripatiya), a commentary on Brihatjataka, and (Sripatipaddhati), the present work.

(Jatakakarmapaddhat:) came to be treated as a separate branch of study about the middle of the eighth century A. D. and amongst the writers on this subject of mathematical astrology, (Sripatibhatta) was one of the earliest, lis predecessors being 2 fat (Sridhara) and (Neelakanta). Sripati has had no successor for four centuries till a7 (Kesava) by his expositions established a unique place for himself in this field. Further, commentaries on Sripatipaddhati itself are a large number.

In the present edition, for the sake of convenience and facility of study and reference, the note on each sloka is given after the translation of the verse itself, instead of being given separately at the end as in the previous edition the explanations have been fuller and more comprehensive. The slokas of (Kesavapaddhati), a remarkable and highlydfetued work on the subject, have been quoted in their entirety in their appropriate places, it being considered that Kesava’s views and exposition of (Jatakapaddhati) would enhance the value and usefulness of this work. Additional explanations have been added to illustrate the text.

My esteemed friend, Mr. Robert De Luce of Los Angeles, America, himself a well-known scholar and author of several works on Astrology, has kindly furnished me with a short sum- mary of these chapters which I have the greatest pleasure in inserting asan Appendix. The reader will agree that the resumé is simple, clear and terse and helpful to beginners.

If the present edition should enable the ordinary reader correctly to appraise the combined strength of the planets for any particular point of time, I should consider myself amply rewarded.
