Preface to the Fourth Edition

Medical astrology is a highly specialized branch of Vedic astrology. Over the past few years, this subject has undergone great evolution, and this process continues. No longer are the age old inhibitions of the medical fraternity in evidence, and more and more medical personnel are taking up the study of this exalted discipline. Astrologers in general too are concentrating more on this branch of astrology which, if sufficiently developed, can immensely help the suffering patient as well as his treating physician.

The revision and upgradation of the fourth edition of the Essentials of Medical Astrology is a result of our continued endeavour to make medical astrology eminently useful for the suffering humanity. New material has been added and some of the older concepts modified in view of our continuous research in this area. The highly scientific approach to the study of this subject has been maintained throughout the book. We hope this new and upgraded edition of the Essentials of Medical Astrology better serves the medical as well as the astrological fraternity.

About the Book

The Essentials of Medical Astrology is the standard book on Vedic astrology which lays down detailed principles relevant to the analysis of a horoscopic chart, with disease and its various aspects as the main focus of attention. Some of the prominent features of this work are:

Standardisation of approach to analysis of a chart related to disease.

Use of four vargas, or divisional charts, and two dashas to ensure an accurate assessement of the chart.

Discussion of principles of sound and unsound health.

Indications for congenital ailments.

An elaborate approach to ensure accurate timing of onset of disease and its outcome.

Hints about the possible site of disease as well as the nature of disease using the significations of houses and planets, and the Drekkanas.

A detailed account of the principles of Balarishta and Arishta-Bhanga.

The use of such subtle principles of Vedic astrology as the twenty-second Drekkana, the sixty-fourth Navamsha, the Sarpa Drekkana, and Gulika or Mandi, to decide on the onset and outcome of illness.

Classical combinations indicating some of the common ailments, and the scientific approach to application of these principles to actual horoscopic charts.
