I am an astrologer of little knowledge.

Jatak tatva is a set of short shlokas divided into five parts: dealing with basic principles of astrology, place and condition at the time of birth, each of the twelve houses of horoscope, female astrology and vimshottari dasha considerations. Although the shlokas are short, they are not that easy to commit to memory due to a lack of pattern in them. Unlike the presentation of matter in “Three Hundred Important Combinations” or “Uttara Kalamrita”, no attempt is made to elucidate the shloka or to simplify its meaning. For this reason alone, this book is not a very easy read, unless you have patience to do research on the shlokas and discover the hidden meaning if the meaning is not immediately obvious.
