Laghu Jatakam: Varaha Mihira's Exposition of Profound Principles of Vedic Astrology
Laghu Jatakam: Varaha Mihira's Exposition of Profound Principles of Vedic Astrology
Description
Preface

Varaha Mihira is considered the greatest authority on Vedic astrology after the era of the sages like Parashara. He was born in Ujjain. His exact time is perhaps not known but he is strongly believed to have existed during the sixth century AD and to have embellished the court of the king Vikramaditya. His most popular works are the Brihat Jatakam and the Brihat Samhita. The Laghu Jatakam is a rather abridged version of the more detailed Jataka text.

Like the other works of Varaha Mihira, this small classic is also presented in the Arya Chhanda. This is a highly charming meter. The plan of the four quarters of each verse here is like this: of the odd quarters, i.e., the first and the third quarters, each consists of 12 letter units; of the even quarters, i.e., the second and the fourth, each comprises of 18 or 15 letter units, such that if quarter two is 18 letter units, then quarter four is 15 letter units, and vice versa.

The Laghu Jatakam is a highly useful work on Vedic astrology composed by a master of unparalleled astrological wisdom. Easy to comprehend and rich in substance. It is a classic that must be studied alike by the novice and the master.

There has been some demand on us by our esteemed readers to bring out this classic in a book form ever since we started serializing it in the bimonthly journal, the Vedic Astrology. I remain beholden to my friend Vinay Aditya for designing the cover for this book, and to Mr. Y S Rawat for helping us in various stages of its preparation.

About the Book

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
