1. Old Astrology Books
  2. Old Vedic Astrology Bookstore

I've often been asked for a list of my favorite astrology books, the ones I thought best. For years I resisted as I did not want to slight all the other authors of all the other books. Also, I didn't think my personal biases should get any more attention than they already do. But we live in a world that is graded (good - better - best) & those who make the rankings take it upon themselves, for better or worse. All of these books are in print and in stock. Be forewarned: These are demanding books.

    Postscript: A great work is the result of great talent, combined with luck. As Gurdjieff pointed out, talent is like salt. It must be concentrated in order to be effective. Scattered or misapplied & it is lost or the effect ruined. Few authors have the talent for a great book. Few ever will.

    That said, there are many other good books. The books & authors above are mere springboards to further study. What do you want to know, what do you want to study, where do you want to go? The possibilities are endless.

    This list will be updated from time to time.

I have got some rare books as under which I would like to make accessible to all Astrologers who may be interested. Some of them are advanced, while the others are good for both beginners and Experts.
These will come as Photostat Copies in Spiral binding to you, since the Originals are not available, either due to reprinting not done or no copies available anywhere for sale.
1) Vedic Numerology. By Shri GV Chaudhary published from Bhartiya Vidya Bhuvan, Mumbai.
This is a rare book and an advanced book on astrology conjoined with astronomy not easy for all to understand. This was first published in 1968. This book contains illustrations on how to find the longevity of a Native to his day of death. It also contains illustrations on how to find the marriage day of a native. This book is not meant for an Ordinary student. (Pages 365)
Comments -This book whether one may understand or not, is worth keeping. It’s the only one of its kind in the world.
2) Old Vedic Astrology BooksVarahamihira's Brihat Jatakaby V.Subramanya Sastri.
I have got quite a few translations of the Brihata Jatak, but not any as good as this one.
The second edition of this book was published in 1971. The best part of this book is that after every shloka the Notes given by the author compile almost every other author in the rendering of the meaning of the shloka, given alongwith explanations. This is like few teachers explaining the shloka to us in first person. The index of this Book itself contains 32 Pages and one can immediately search for the shlokas of any event one is looking for.
(Pages 548)
Comments – This is a must have book to refer to by any novice or Expert in astrology.
3) Nakshatra Chintamani by Chandrakant R Bhatt.
This book has always been out of print and one has to find ways and means of acquiring the same. The traditional Astrologers most of them most of the times find themselves at cross roads when it comes to Predictions, though they are experts at Theory work. But this is not astrology. One is interested in our Predictions and not in our lectures on character or nature analysis when one comes to us with his chart. This book will teach you how to predict in the most simplest manner ever you may have ever imagined. Once you understand this book after a couple of readings through the numerous illustrations given in same, you will be able to consider yourself as a KP Astrologer. (Pages 168)
Comments – I recommend this book for any astrologer who wishes to fine tune his predictions. You will thank me after you have gone through it.
4) Indian Astrology by C.J. Krishnaswamy.
First published in 1956. This is a basic book on Indian astrology but among the best I found in 25 years of journey through books.

(Pages 215)
Comments – I recommend this for all New entrants and Experts also for reading and understanding all the Lagnas, houses, ways of examining the Horoscope, and how to predict .
