Most of the people in India are very well acquainted with the name of ‘Lal Kitab’. Originally this book was written by Shri Girdhari Lal Sharma in Urdu language. Subsequently it was translated into Hindi language. Some adulteration is quite natural in the translated version of the original text. Primarily our rishi-maharshis, godmen, astrologers, fortune-tellers like Narad, Parashar, Kalidas, Varahmihir, Jaimini, Bhrigu etc. and the contemporary saints had prescribed yajna, hawan, worship, chanting God’s name, rituals and donations to mitigate the bad effect of planets. Later on acknowledging the paucity of money and time, Shri Girdhari Lal Sharma, the author of the original Lal Kitab, proposed remedies that were simple and required least expense of money. These, easy remedies became very popular in India.
Keeping in mind a code of conduct, dharma, practical aspects, good conduct and the basic principles of life and the need for proper discipline in society, the author had suggested the remedies which were accepted by the common men by heart. For example, respect of elders, service to parents, offering grass to cow, offering bread to dog, feeding monkeys with gram and jaggery etc. are such remedies that can easily be done by everybody. The principality of twelve signs and nine planets of Indian astrology has also been accepted by La! Kitab. The mere difference is that whereas in the prevalent astrology the ascendant is determined by the time of birth, Lal Kitab always keeps it between Aries and Pisces.
Float a gilt coin in the running water; the bad effect of Rahu will calm down.
Give a feast or souvenir to beautiful or unmarried girls if heart disease is troubling. Donate a razai (quilt) in the temple or offer bread to dog if there is confrontation between father and son or the son is in trouble. Put on silver if suffering from urinary problem due to the ill effect of Ketu. Offer a part of the meal to cow if the marital life is not in tune. The people have enthusiastically accepted all these simple remedies.
One day, .1 was having discussion with Shri Narendra Kumar Ji sitting in the office of Diamond Pocket Books in Delhi. The discussion turned towards Lal Kitab. It was then decided that I should write seriously about the remedies of Lal Kitab in simple language. I took up this serious responsibility and accordingly I am presenting this book before you. I would consider myself extremely fortunate if you benefit from it even a little bit.
