Single Women and Astrology

K.N. Rao (Author) Hindu Astrology Series

This book is a unique astrology study of Single Women of India which would be most useful in the fast changing society of India of twenty first century.

We are using the word “single” for unmarried women and drawing a distinction between unmarried women who are mothers and single woman who are not mothers.

The same four woman astrologers, Dr. (Mrs.)Shrirama Mishra. Dr. (Mrs.) Sarla Prasad, Mrs. Shalini Dhasmana and Mrs. Draupadi Rai who earlier produced the onograph on “Delayed Marriege of Girls” have now produced this book “Single Women and Astrology”.

Some generations ago it was unusual to come across cases of single women India. Particularly in the Hindu society thought it is well recognised that in ancient India women could remain single and serve the society in various capacities. Prof Altekar refers to two types of women, the Brahmavadinis and Sadyovahas.

Brahmavadinis did not marry and were lifelong students of theology and philosophy. Sadyovahas pursud studies upto the age of 15 or 16 when they got married.

Brahmavadinis used to aim an excellence and did Vedic studies which in later puritanical times was denied to them by orthodox Hindus. We have famous instances of Maitreyi, the wife of Yagyavalka and of Gargi who engaged the famous Yagyavalka in the court of Raja Janaka in a debate.

It is better to see the horoscope of a girl. A marriageable woman from an astrological point of view early enough to advise her parents who want to plan the future of their daughters.

It is a unique astrological study which works repeatedly if the astrological parameters given here are applied with intelligence.

About the author

K.N. Rao

K.N. Rao (Kotamraju Narayana Rao) retired from the Indian Audit and Accounts Service as Director General in November 1990.  He is the second of the four sons of the famous journalist of the pre-independence era. K. Rama Rao, the founder editor of the National Herald and, editor of more than thirty journals in his long journalistic career.  Rao was initiated into astrology by his late mother, K. Saraswani Devi, at the known in two areas, marriage and children and prashna (horary).  Rao was a lecturer in English before joining the government service through an all-India competition in 1957.  He joined the Indian Audit and Accounts Service from which he retired as Director General in November 1990.  More interested in games and sports than in astrology in his youth, Rao won brilliancy prizes in chess competitions and two state championships in bridge competitions.  He played ten other games which is why in his astrological writings also there are references to games often.  During his service career, he was the planner, organizer and teacher of three international courses on Audit of Receipts as a joint director once and director twice.  His interaction with foreigners have been both on professional and astrological levels for more than two decades which is why he has, as an astrologer, a large international network of friends.  He went on doing all his fundamental researches in astrology during his service career because of which he went on collecting horoscopes systematically in thousands.  He has in his possession more than 50,000 horoscopes with ten important events of each individual noted with him.  It is perhaps, the largest individual collection of horoscopes any astrologer in the world has.  The strain of doing astrology as a mission, not charging any fee, except on foreign tours almost made him give up astrology many times.  But in December 1981 he was forced out of his shell to participate in a three-day seminar on astrology in Delhi.  After this ground breaking speech, there has been a persistent demand for his astrological articles.  From them onwards he has been sharing with his readers his original researches for which he has won worldwide praise.  Between 1993 and 1995, Rao has visited the USA on five lecture tours.  He was the Chief Guest at the Second Conference of the American Council of Vedic Astrology in 1993.  He was requested to be present in the Third Conference also in 1994 on the opening day because of the crowds he would draw.  His name was advertised till November 1995 also for the Fourth Conference though he had made it clear that he would not be available anymore for the American conferences.  In June 1998 he went to Moscow where he taught astrology through interpreters.  It was a great success as reported by the Russian sponsors part of those reported is produced here.  As a result of his academic approach, he has now more than a thousand students in India and more than two hundred in the USA.  He is the Director of Astrology Courses in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, New Delhi.  The teachers on the teaching faculty of the astrology course in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan have, like him, never charged any fees for teaching which they do in an honorary capacity.
