It is very heartening to see experienced astrologers write on the sublime theme of jyotir vidua with illuminating analysis and stimulating thoughts as is contained in this book of Dr.C.V.B. Subrahmanyam.
The book is a collection of talks, which Dr.Subrahmanyam gave from time to time in India, abroad and over the radio.
The book easily falls into clearly definable parts: there is the stimulating philosophical part where the author shares his rich thinking with his readers and listeners. There are some most useful predictive hints and finally the explanation of the zodiac as the nerve centres and planets as the rhythm of life cosmos and music itself.
The thinking about jyotisha must lead one into spirituality, which is very pleasing as it is here. The predictive hints, particularly about the meaning of differing value of points denoted by different points in astakavarga is very revealing and shows some lesser known and very useful points for day to day predictions. In some places he had dropped some hints without revealing much like the where Venus is behind Sun, he times marriage according to the difference between them to time the event of marriage. In using transits, the hints he gives are rich material for statistical research, like the transit of Rahu over the eighth lord causing illness and accident.
It is an excellent book and will be a great hit with those who have a desire to go deep into the secrets of jyothisha.
I wish him great success with this book.
SASTRA directs our conduct and behaviour was the opinion of our ancients. Whatever is proved through tests and experiments is the science, is the opinion of modern people. The term science as a synonym to sastra has been in usage. However, should Astrology be considered as a science or not ? Many. debates are going on, on this issue. Heated arguments and hectic parleys are also going on about the recognition of Astrology as a science. However science has two facets: experimental and descriptive. Intellectuals may readily agree to consider Astrology as a descriptive science.
While introducing the fundamentals of Astrology in this book, whereever there are instances of scientific nature, I made sincere efforts to integrate them with my thoughts on Astrology.
Any omissions or deletions may kindly be brought to my notice so that I can rectify them in the next edition. Any suggestions regarding this work will be appreciated.
I am verymuch thankful to Sri P. Dayasagar for translating nto lucid English my original Telugu books and to Sri K N Rao for his valuable foreword.
My sincere thanks to Sri C.B.V. Subrahmanya Sastry, A. Viswanatham and Sri C. Rama Krishna Sarma and Sri N.Vyaghreswara Rao for their sincere efforts in refining and editing this work. I wish to express my sincere appreciation to Smt.K.Swarna Kumari who with competance and patience has extended DTP services, incorporating `requent refinements.
