Astrology means ‘Jyotish’ in Hindi which means a flame or torch. A torch that shows the light. So it means that Jyotish i.e. astrology shows the light to the confused and lost people or to anybody else who seeks some guidance. Astrology in India was never thought to be a subject of fun or only a subject for making money by telling the fortune of people. Rather it was always taken with lot of respect and the most gifted and intelligent people were asked to learn it and practice it. We say it in India that Astrology is only for intelligent people and if one is not intelligent then either he will run away from it or with the time he’ll become intelligent.
The present blog is a concise effort that gives the first few lessons of Indian Astrology. Indian astrology is known for its rich tradition of knowledge and accurate predictions. There are thousand many books available on various systems of astrology in the market. But there is no single book that is helpful for the new learner. Most of the astrology books directly tell the hundreds of the combinations or Yogas without explaining the rule behind them. The reader can remember them but can’t learn the logic behind it. So he fails to learn astrology itself unless by some grace of God or with the help of some teacher he comes to know the principles behind those Yogas. This small book offers the basic but systematic presentation of astrological principles used in interpretation. These principles are easy to follow and learn. After reading and practicing on few charts the reader should be able to read the horoscope of everyone with great success. Of-course a lot more advance study and experience will be required for the thorough knowledge.
