Overview for Navamsa in Astrology
The blessings of "Shri Bala Chandrika" has enabled me to place before the astrological fraternity, a long needed treatise which is somewhat fulfilled by writing an independent and exclusive book on "Navamsa" techniques for the first time in English.
In Hindu predictive astrology, Navamsa occupies an outstanding position and draws one's attention for deeper security and understanding. The Navamsa techniques are very many, as many as possible are dealt with in this book. Students are advised to study not only the classical texts but also Nadi Granthas, such a Deva Keralam: Chandra Kala Nadi, Dhruva Nadi, Bhrigu Nadi etc. for additional knowledge.
The present is a rare kind of work, what the readers would find in this treatise can hardly be found elsewhere.
I have ventured into an unchartered area of Nadi Granthas and classical texts, where the concept of "Navamsa" has been extensively and innovatingly applied to solve various techniques of predictions.
I do not think it fit, to enumerate the innumerable techniques discussed in the book here, but I would like to state that many technical terms such as, Nidhanamsa, Ashtamamsa, Pushkaranavamsa, Bhava-suchaka-navamsa, the 64the Navamsa, Vikatamsa, Bhava-madhya-navamsa and many more are explained, showing their correct impart.
Many more techniques can be found from Vidhya-madhaviyam, Kashyapa Jataka (about 107 verses in Hora-Ratnam part II) and Nadi Granthas. If God ordains and gives me energy and sound health, I would and many more techniques in the next edition.
In conclusion, I crave indulgence of readers for scares of solecisms that have crept in while I was struggling to squeeze the right sense out of many a tough Sanskrit verse and express it in a foreign language.
