Vedic Astrology

There are number of excellent books/material available on Vedic Jyotish (astrology), but only a few of them are focused on beginners. These web pages arer meant for beginners and is an effort to reveal the very basic concepts of Vedic Jyotish.

Main objective behind this effort is to spread Vedic Jyotish knowledge, so that educated people can understand and appreciate this ancient Holy Science. Some of the highlights of the work are given below -
  • This work is specifically designed for beginners and the focus is on explaining the very basic fundamentals of Vedic Jyotish.
  • Special efforts are made to make the text simple, short and to the point. Each jargon has a brief description or English translation along with it.
  • At each step, wherever it is possible, integration of elements and components are discussed.
  • Extensive use of Graphic illustration : Extensive use of graphic illustration and analogies to explain the abstract and complex concepts. It's always easy to understand and retain the concepts visually.
Essentially, this work is just an eye opener and should be used as a supplementary to advance topics on Vedic Jyotish. For advance topics, I would suggest you to opt for Varaha Mihira’s “Brihat Jataka" or "Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra" or other relevant books suitable for your level.
We do hope that this book will meet its objective and gives you an excellent head start in Vedic Jyotish. In order to make the subject simple for beginners, at times the explanation in this book may suffer in depth. Since, every human effort causes an error, there may be some omissions and mistakes in this work. But we are sure that your valuable suggestions can improve this work to a great extent.
