Reference Books in Vedic Astrology

I have updated the Vedic astrology reference book page with a small description of each book. I hope to keep this list current as and when I get new books on this subject.

Update – This page of reference books will be phased out. I will be gradually moving it to this page.

My primary language of learning astrology is Hindi and I tend to think in this language whenever I look at a horoscope. Therefore, I try to purchase books in Hindi and you would a lot of Hindi books here. English editions of these classics are available most of the time, from the same publisher, although editors and/or translators would be different.

My opinion of these books should not be thought of as their review because one can not pass judgement on ones gurus and teachers. While reading any book on any subject, it is not just the subject matter that affects me. I get affected by the style of writing, lack or abundance of examples on the subject being presented, language and even a simple thing like typeset affects me and an opinion is formed. That said, even if the style of a teacher does not suit the student, the student still learns something and gains from the association.

Hi, I have started to learn Vedic astrology on my own- via websites like yours, Astojyoti etc. Can u suggest me a book which will be appropriate for a beginner and a self learner like me?

Few weeks ago I have requested for a source of book on”Mathematics of Astrology” by Deepak Kapoor.

Have received no reply so far.
