I am very much delighted to write some of my observations on the book Vedic Astrology written by Dr.S.Krishna Kumar who is my friend and student. He has been associated for more than 2 decades in the field of Astrology by teaching, research and conducting workshops and conferences. In this book Dr.S.Krishna Kumar has given a new dimension in his Astrological writing. As he is well versed in Vedas, Upanishads, Geeta and other scriptural literature, his treatment of the subject of Astrology, is unique.
Karma theory has been explained in proper perspective and every student has to understand the same in the light of complete astrological knowledge bequeathed by the rishis of yore.
Human life has many components such as mind, body, soul , senses and Samsakaras. Destiny of an individual or his achievements are all part and parcel of the above components with the blend of Karma force brought by from several births of the past. Although this book is or beginners, he has dealt all basic factors like casting of horoscope Navamsha, bhava, Vargas etc. with elementary principles of horoxcopic analysis. As he has fund of knowledge in remedial measures, Karma Vipaka and Vedic remedies, we may expect still more and valuable books of
Astrology and this book forms a good platform to understand the advanced version.
I wish him success in all his Endeavour’s.
I take this opportunity to congratulate Dr.S.Krishna Kumar for publishing this book.
Dr. S. Krishna Kumar is a Vedic Scholar who has been rendering yeoman service in the field of Astrology since two decades.
The book in your hand “ Vedic Astrology” (with roots) is aptly titled as the subject of Astrology is dealt from Karma Theory which is the root of Astrology.
The book contains valuable information useful to students and the Astrological fraternity as a whole.
I wish him all the success.
This book is oriented for the beginners in particular and Astrologers in general. The book commences with the Karma. Theory on the edifice of which Astrology stands. Effort is made to explain the meaning of Karma Theory from various sources drawn from Bhagavad Githa, Manu Dharma Shastra, Katopanishad, Shwethaswaropanishad, Mukunda Mala, Subhashitas and others.
After explaining the Karma Theory, the subject of Astrology has been dealt with in a step by step and systematic manner as far as possible. I feel that the readers may not find it difficult to understand the various stellar quarters accommodated in various signs, the concept of Ascendant, the determination of friendship and animosity of planets and Mathematical portions of casting the horoscope.
In this second edition I have added many more Astrological terminologies and the casting of Bhava Kundali. I have also included casting of divisional charts and the utility of divisional charts in arriving at eh Vimsopaka or twenty point strength of the planets. Also I have incorporated the salient information on stars or nakshathras to give a concrete shape to this book so that the readers get more information in a single book.
English names are also incorporated for Astrological terminologies as far as possible to help the readers. The stanzas are presented in both Sanskrit and English languages.
The planetary significations are dealt with in a broader perspective and hints are given to apply the significations for predictive purposes.
The reader is given tips to analyse the various Astrological terminologies from the predictive angle apart from giving insight to predictions.
Importance of Navamsha and Divisional charts are mentioned and care has been taken not to incorporate advanced Astrological studies in order to present a simple and clear book for beginners and amateurs. I intend to bring out a series of books in line with this book for further studies.
