Sanskrit Dictionary

By Kshitij Sharma, Sep 07, 2014

There are a lot of good books on Vedic Astrology in Hindi and other languages, as compared to the quality and quantity of books in English. The books in English are directed towards Western countries and to expose them towards this ancient science. These books are frequently written on basic topics, like how to cast a chart, how to interpret signs, planets and houses, and how to use the predictive methods. There are very few astrologers who have both the command on astrological principles as well as command on language. Shri David Frawley and Shri PVR Narsimha’s books are brilliant. Frawley’s book “Astrology of the Seers” is superb for its philosophical angle and Narsimha’s book is great for its application,Continue reading
