Description
Preface to First Edition

A book on Mathematical Astrology needs no prefatory remarks. It is an admitted fact that without proper calculations it would be difficult to make correct predictions. Bhaskaracharya, the great Hindu Astronomer, 'goes so far as to stress on the need for a clear knowledge of spherical astronomy and a comprehension of the doctrine of spherical projection and allied theories for locating the true positions of planets for one who wishes to be an astrologer.

By the constant pressure brought to bear upon me by a large section of the readers of The Astrological Magazine I realised the need for a book of this type. And the main object in issuing this publication has been to enable the students of astrology to work out precisely the strengths of planets and houses which are absolutely essential for correctly interpreting birth charts. I must warn the zealous reader, that whilst mathematical astrology is. important in its own way upto a certain stage as an aid to successful predictions, too much indulgence in it is harmful as marring one's power of intuition, the proper development of which is absolutely necessary. Hence I have given in this book such of the principles of astrological mathematics as would really help one to venture predictions with confidence. All superfluous material has been omitted.

The general scheme I have followedd is mainly that of Sripathi. I am fully convinced that Hindu Astronomico- Astrological methods yield satisfactory results when properly studied and applied. I have discussed this subject in the introduction to my A Manual of Hindu Astrology to which the reader's attention is invited.

The tables for finding the mean position of planets and their Seeghrochcha which are necessary for calculating Chesta Bala have been reproduced from The Book of Fate by Kedarnath Dutt of Calcutta to whom acknowledgement and thanks are due. Throughout the book in the example worked out, fractions less than half a ghati or 30 seconds of arc or time have been rejected.

I assume in my' readers a knowledge of the rudiments of Astrology and the ability to cast a horoscope which can be gathered from any standard book on the subject. The reader will do well to procure a copy of A Manual of Hindu Astrology if he has not already done so, as constant reference has been made to it, in the course of the present exposition.

I crave the indulgence of my readers for any shortcomings and imperfections and solicit their valuable suggestions for incorporation in subsequent editions.

Preface to The Thirteenth Edition

Considering the apparently technical nature of Graha and Bhava Balas the sale of the twelfth edition within a short period is indeed an encouraging indication of the keen interest shown by a large number of educated people in the study of this sublime subject on rational lines.

Probably mine is the first attempt to present the ancient rules of determining strengths of planets and houses in the English language in a simple, easy and flowing style. The thirteenth edition has been revised and improved. It is bound to prove of considerable value to those who are in search of true astrological knowledge. The Ahargana Tables have been calculated upto 2000 A.D.

I crave the indulgence of my esteemed readers for any deficiencies that might have' crept into, this work through oversight.

Appreciation is due to UBS Publishers' Distributors Ltd . New Delhi, for bringing out this edition attractively.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
