This book is a compilation of YOGAS in Indian Astrology that are specific planetary combinations, identifiable in any horoscope, which are deemed to have the special power and capacity of bringing forth some explicit results, good or bad. They are found in abundance and lie scattered by mention, in the various astrological texts of yore. Though technically any conjunction of planets can go under the classification of yoga, the ancient astrological treatises have identified some of the select ones as something special and categorized them under explicit nomenclatures that are suggestive of their precise attributes. This book is aimed to aid the right technique of interpretation of yogas, rather than their enumeration. Innovative in intention and investigative in insight, the book leads the reader through the labyrinths of varied versions, contentious, conciliatory and conflicting among themselves to arrive at a compatible conclusion. Through an incisive evaluation, the book helps the reader to appraise them appropriately. In addition it engulfs itself with an encyclopaedic content of many informative inputs. In short it is a vade-mecum for anyone, whose passion is astrology.
