For the first time a book on Vedic Astrology not only consolidates the various types of remedial measures available in the sacred literature, but also shows how to read the horoscope and recommend Vedic Remedies.
The author explains the classification of remedial measures on the basis of Guna (Nature) and cautions the astrologer against indulging in black magic and other forms of black tantricism that will only destroy his good karma. The Scientific study of phonemes called Mantra Shastra has been explained in considerable detail, showing the importance of choosing the correct mantra with illustrative calculations.
A compendium of Mantra provides a ready reference for the professional Vedic astrologer and a comprehensive chapter on Gemology with ready reference tables guides the reader in the choice of the right gemstone. The FAQ answers many doubts that a reader is likely to have. The daily procedure of personal spiritual discipline and the esoteric knowledge of the syllables has added to make this the most comprehensive book of its kind in Vedic Astrology.
Various case studies including the personal research of the author in determining the number of letters in the mantra etc, will help in developing expertise by teaching how to systematically work on a horoscope. There are some areas like Vaastu Shastra (Vedic Architecture) & Nimitta Shastra (Omens) that have been left out of the purview of this book for the present. Other areas requiring extensive research like the horoscopes of the ten Sikh Guru's has been touched, but further research in this area has been left for future generations.
