SWARA CHINTAMANI is a rare book dealing with a novel and an almost forgotten method of divination by breath and published now for the first time in English. It will be significant t note that every one has got a tendency instinctively to aim at maximum success by an easy and smooth path and to know something about future. Ecclesiastes states, “To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the heavens; A time to bow born and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to break down and a time to build up; A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance; A time to get and a time to lose; A time to keep and a time to cast away.” Such a time is ascertainable from one’s own breath, the vital vibration governing the world, as revealed by this book.
This is therefore indispensable to Palmists and Numerologists to answer horary questions put to them. For an astrologer this is of absolute necessity. In fact1 slokas 15 and 16 of Chapter VI mention forcefully, “An astrologer without the knowledge of Swara, a youth without wealth, a mouth without capacity to read sastras, a body without head, a king without wisdom end a Brahma m without righteous conduct lack charging.’ Even for a lay man there is a lot of interesting information in this book. How to control birth, how to get a child of desired sex, how to attract people and how to seize opportunities for a successful life, among other things, are found in this.
Considering, therefore, the importance of this book, the author spared no pains in getting transcribed copies of the manuscripts from Oriental Libraries for publication. He is highly indebted to the authorities of the Madras Government Oriental Manuscripts Library and the Ayer Library. Madras-20 for having accorded their permission to take copies of the manuscripts; and but for their permission this useful book would not have seen the light of the day.
