Vedic Recycled & Used Books, page 2

Good books for $5.00

These are not really used books, they're excess stock from two of my suppliers, though they are all several years old. As we got these for a good price, we're happy to pass it along. These are, for the most part, $5.00 each. Some we have in quantity, but for some there are only a few. Expand your library, expand your horizons, take a dare. The stranger the book, the more interesting its adventure.

Please note: Books published by Taraporevala / D.B. Taraporevala Sons, are notably crude in printing & binding.

Comment: This book was originally published in 1921 & looks to be a comprehensive survey of the world's royal houses as of that date, with particular emphasis on Indian royalty. Of note, the author's own horoscope is given twice, once on pgs. 90-92, where he is known as B. Suryanarain Row & the planets are given in their English names, and again on pgs 109-110, where his name is given as Bangalore Suryanarain Rao, and where the same chart is printed, using Hindi names for the planets.

On pgs. 101-103 is the horoscope of Jesus Christ, for December 25, 7 BC, data as found in the 1937 American Journal of Astrology, as supplied by Cyril Fagan. As this was the same year in which B.S. Rao died, we may assign the 1937 edition - of which this is a copy - to the work of his son, B.S. Chandran. Chandran is presumably B.V. Raman's father or uncle. Does anybody know?

The Astrological Office, 118 pages. First printed 1921, this copy from the mid 1980's.

Comment: The introduction says this book is a "transcreation" of Pragnana Deepika. To this is added extracts from the Tamil Jinendra Malai. Regret that I had not previously heard of either book. Pragnana Deepika does not appear to be Phala Deepika.

In the Preface we learn that this book, along with Anga Vidya and Sakuna Phala Nirnaya form a trilogy. Of the three, this book, and Anga Vidya include original slokas, so it might be possible for someone to discover who wrote the orignal books.

The delineations are brief & wonderfully grim. Here is an example, from section XVII, On Marriages:

If Saturn were to be in the Prasna Lagna, the girl to be married will be poor and she will have children who will soon die. If Moon were to be in the Prasna Lagna, the couple will shortly meet with death.

But if Venus, Jupiter & Mercury were in the Prasna Lagna, the couple will live long happily. (Sloka 271, pg. 69)

I tried to find a "just plain happy" marriage sloka, but there weren't any.
