Introduction

The present book of astronomy has been written for students who want to learn Hindu Astrology and posses knowledge of mathematics up to the 10+2 standard and known the elements of plane geometry algebra etc. Though the book contains the figures of three dimensions yet the students can understand the astronomical concepts. Using their imaginations and grasping the points explained.

In writing this book help has been taken from the class notes on Indian Astronomy by Shri R.N. Vashist (I.A. & A.S. Retd.) Elements of Astronomy by George W. Parker Spherical Astronomy by W.M. smart and A to Z Astronomy by Patric Moore.

I hope students will find these lessons useful for understanding astronomy and its utilization in astrology.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
I got my order today. It was well packed and looks lovely.
