Book Description

There have been strong attacks against astrology and objections to it being described as science in some sections of the scientific fraternity following the University Grants Commission's February 2001 proposal to introduce astrology in the Universities. The criticism has done little to hurt astrology and its case but has exposed the bias and ignorance behind these attacks. Most times, the arguments against astrology appear to be based on, not what astrology is but what its critics assume it to be. Such assumption is invariably based on bias, prejudice, misinformation and of course, ignorance.

Several well-meaning friends and admirers of the Father of Modern Astrology, DR. B.V. RAMAN, suggested to me that it was important to convince those who decry astrology of its scientific nature. Much as I respect them and their appreciation and concern for DR. RAMAN'S life-long crusade for astrology, I do not see the need to make any attempt in this direction. For the simple reason, science stands on its own merits as a science and does not rest on certification by anyone. This is true of astrology. Anyone with honest respect for truth must sooner or later recognize astrology as science.

I have, in the following pages, made an attempt to expose the hollowness and invalidity of such attacks. It is an unfortunate reflection on the degree of prejudice against astrology that even crude lies have also been made a part of the anti-astrology campaign. I have brought to light certain unpalatable and unpleasant facts concerning such concoctions. The material in these pages has appeared earlier in THE ASTROLOGICAL MAGAZINE.

She is also the national Vice President of the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences founded by DR. B.V. RAMAN in 1984 to organise the study and practise of astrology.

Gayatri Devi Vasudev has authored many books on astrology that include Clues to Interpreting Charts (under print), The Art of Matching Charts, Practical Horary Astrology and How to Judge a Horoscope — Volume II.
