NONE of the following is part of the purpose of this blog: prove the validity of Vedic astrology, prove that I know Vedic astrology, advertise that I know Vedic astrology and that you must show me your horoscope. In particular, please DO NOT try to give me your birth details through comments and expect me to tell you when you are going to fall in love/get married/have kids/get promotion/clear credit card bills next.
I am interested in Parashara and Jaimini schools of astrology. I learned astrology from my revered grandfather and brother. I like books written by Dr. B V Raman. Particularly, I recommend the following books: Hindu Predictive Astrology, A Catechism of Astrology, How to Judge a Horoscope - 1&2. I also like a book written in Telugu, by Vidvan Abbaraju Lakshminarasimharao. I would strongly recommend these books to beginners. For drawing charts, I use Jagannatha Hora (by Sri P V R Narasimha Rao). For checking ephemeris, I use Junior Jyotish.
May God bless you!
