Overview for Jyotisa Fundamentals: My Master's Words
The book is meant to lift astrologers of a beginner or intermediate level up to an advanced level. To work on the core roots of the subject, the first chapters deals with the 'Panca-anga', or the five limbs of the Vedic calendar. This particular area of jyotish is often overlooked due to lack of knowledge in application on part of the astrologer, and also the idea that it is merely a calender system, and hence overlooked completely by astrologers following the Western Astrology System.
