The original book
which I am translating has no introductionwhatsoever and hence, I am unable to say anything about the author thereof. It givesvaluable hints and aids, in delineating the character & fortunes of a native , in variouswalks of life. What is popularly known as
(effects of the 12 houses) instandard texts, is dealt with a direct touch, and with particular reference, to the planetsstationed in various houses, the aspects they receive and the fact, that a planet is in
. Even a cursory perusal of the book, would convinceeven a professional astrologer, that this book can enable astrologers, to predict thefuture of a native, and form an opinion about planetary dispositions in a horoscope, witha fair amount of ease.
Sage Bhrigu, like other authors, has described in anumber of slokas, acts of sexual perversion, arising as a result of peculiar planetary mappings. With a view tomaintaining literary decency, these have simply been termed as "sexual perversion".
It will be seen that the Sage indicates occurrence of certain important events in a native'slife at specified ages. It was noticed by me, in a number of horoscopes, that, though theevents forecast, have actually occurred, the years of their occurrence (in about 50% of the cases) were different. I have not been able to ascertain, as to how the Sage has fixed the various ages, at which the events were to occur and why they occur late, in a number of cases. Despite this slight discrepancy,
will prove to be a valuable aid to practising astrologers in making decisions, on important questions concerning nativities.
Part II of this book is comparable to a First-Aid Box or South Indian Cuisine -
