Comment: The author has a fascination with ancient palm leaves & how they may be read, with a view to predictive work. One reason nadi predictions are successful, according to the author, is because of transits of Jupiter & Saturn to the lords of the various house cusps. If you're a western astrologer peeking in here, note this: Not the transit of Saturn to a natal planet per se, but trasit of Saturn to a house ruler, eg, lord. Saturn imparts an energy to a lord which transfers it to the house it rules, producing a result in keeping with the house in question.
K.N. Rao is notably skeptical of nadi astrology & nadi readers generally. He published this book because he believes the author has done an outstanding job. This is one of the best books on nadi.
About the Book:
The author of this book has been making use of Nadi methods of predictions for some years successfully and has some success to his credit. Snapshot methods in astrology are mostly based on transits and progressions. It is not western astrology but Hindu astrology which has believed in various types of progressions be they Bhrigu or Nadi progressions or the Sudarshan Chakra methods. These progressions are amazing because here without any dasha sound results can be arrived at and dependable predictions given. Most of the principles given in the book are known to many astrologers but are scattered here and there. It is good to find them compiled at one place. The book becomes a useful collection of some well-known principles of Bhrigu or Nadi.
