Back of the Book
As was wished, this book represents the biggest landmark in the march of Jyotisha towards the desired goal of in-depth understanding of a horoscope through various ways. The earlier landmark was in 1991 when I produced advanced Techniques of Astrological Predictions. This book shows how much greater progess inresearch is being made. the difference that while advanced techniques of Astrological Predictions had to be produced single handedly by passing on, in most cases, y parameters; in the present case ( in this treatise) most of the papers are the product of original thinking of the contributors with me helping them here and there.
There are astrologers and astrologers, quacks who run their journals even and show their breeding, indulge in vituperation against others because they hav no single astrolgical prediction worthy of mentioning. They have no example to show how a well argued astrological prediction is arrived at.
If astrologers had taken to academic discipline, as the teachers and a tiny fragment of research students of the Bharatiya vidya Bhawan, new Delhi have, there would have been a tremendous progress.
Wait for many more volumes of such high quality as this.
it has been called Finer Technique of Astrological Predictions because it is a collection of such techniques.
As the Gregorian twentieth century comes to its stormy end, a landkarm in jyotisha worth remembering and quoting is this book.
Nature and value of an astrological research
Like the "sex and shopping best sellers" which are not in demand
now in 1999 according to a newspaper of England, astrology-lovers
may also be experiencing a very perceptible change that has become
their demand. They want, being realistic, even cynical and down to
earth, an astrological methodology that "works".
