This book provides an insight into the importance of astrology viz., natal,

electional and horary, as well as deals with other dimensions of this

science such as spirituality, spiritualism, Ayurveda, transmigration of

souls, thought-reading, dreams, temple and its rituals and effects of

particular sins.

The work presents new theories and methods of determining success and

defeat in contests and wars with the help of illustrative charts. It urges

readers to avoid fatalism commonly associated with predictions and explains

how one could solve riddles in life and tide over the pessimistic attitude

and related psychological problems. The author has thrown fresh light on

some questions like the name of the author of Prasnamarga, line of

succession of his pupils, and the authorship of the Dasadhyayi. The most

significant contribution of this work is the clear exposition of the rules

of Astamangala and Devaprasna, in addition to Candragupti

(water-divination), martial problems, Coragrahas, Necromancy, special

importance of Mandi and Dasa of its star, Kalacakradasa, etc.
