The book is very comprehensive and is a brilliant addition to the existing literature on Vedic Astrology. The book is not only a compendium of advanced predictive techniques but also contains large number of actual life case studies to show their applicability. It will be of great use in upgrading the predictive skill of the astrologers in a holistic way.



There is a vast classical literature and modem commentaries on Vedic Astrology. These fall in two categories - one written by traditional astrologers couched in a language which a modem English speaking person finds difficult to understand and other by modem English language writers who have largely taken one aspect of Vedic Astrology for their theme. But very few books in English language take a holistic view of Vedic Astrology and are also easily comprehensible.

It was also observed that people having formal qualification of Vedic Astrology find it difficult to grasp the comprehensiveness of the subject to enable them to make effective predictions. From the vast literature - classical and modern commentaries on each branch of this esoteric science, it is not easy for an astrologer to retrieve or use them properly while reading a horoscope. In order to fill this gap ‘Vishnu Prediction Sheets’ were prepared during the late nineties, after carefully reviewing the literature, classical and modem commentaries, on each of the branches of Vedic Astrology. These Sheets were prepared after detailed analysis in value added form keeping in view the needs of the querist to facilitate the astrologer to make their use while making a reading. These were given freely to the research scholars and practising astrologers — in India and abroad. Subsequently these Sheets formed the basis of various advanced level courses for astrologers which the author has been conducting for more than a decade.

The author has been bringing out an annual issue of “Journal of Vedic Astrology”. These journals were thematic, in the sense that each issue contained articles with case studies on one specific theme of Vedic astrology. They were also distributed freely to the astrologers with the object of upgrading their predictive capacity. Year after year and course after course astrologers were demanding publication of a book based on these articles. In view of their constant requests, the author was encouraged to undertake an intensive survey of all the available literature. This literature survey together with upgrading the earlier course material has helped in bringing out the present book as a compendium of predictive techniques of all branches of Vedic Astrology.

The book has fifty Chapters and twenty one Annexures in two volumes. Volume One contains six parts - Part I: Principles of Horoscope Judgement, Part II: Medical Astrology. Part III: Love, Relationship, Marriage and Progeny, Part IV: Transit and Ashtakvarga, Part V: Annual Chart and Part VI: Jaimini Shastra and thirteen Annexures. Volume Two contains four pans - Pan VII: Prashna Shastra, Part VIII: Chakra Prediction, Part IX: Samhita — Astro-meteorologv and Part X: Samhita —Mundane Astrology and Commodity Price Trend and eight Annexures. All contain number of actual life cases to explain the applicability of the principles.

I would like to acknowledge the valuable contribution of Jyotishacharya Dr. Lata Singh, lAS (Retd.), ex-Secretary to GOl and Bimla Vaid. Both of them provided wonderful support in editing and pointing out the mistakes and suggesting improvement in the structure of the books. The book would not have seen the light of the day without their efforts and cooperation. I express my heartfelt thanks to them.

I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of the astrologers who attended my advanced Vedic Astrology courses. The feedback and discussions with them gave a deeper insight and incentive to further research and include missing links here and there. I am ever grateful to them for their contributions in discussions in the class. Thank you very much my dear students.

I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of my family — wife Bimla and children Vandana, Archana. Deepak & Sonali. They had unflinching faith in my decision to quit the lAS for the sake of studying astrology. There were many highs and lows in family life but not a single time did they criticize my decision — which itself is the only one of this type till today in the country. This gave me an opportunity to study and disseminate the knowledge of Vedic Astrology with single minded devotion. Thank you very much my dear family for your support and help.

My efforts will be redeemed if the astrologer community finds these books useful in improving their predictive abilities. Difference of opinion in astro-sciences is quite common. Mistake, if any, are also possible due to over sight. I would welcome all such comments and views to improve and amend.
