Vedic Astrology by

Sumeet Chugh 



Sumeet Chugh got off to a fast, early start, writing all his books before he was 30. With more books planned, he mysteriously stopped writing. Contacts tell me he had unexpected family problems. There are many of us who would welcome his early return to astrological authorship, he has much still to show us. He has been compared to the much older K.N. Rao. Lest you be surprised at his age, remember that in an ancient land of nearly a billion people with a strong astrological tradition, this is almost to be expected. Please note that a planned book on Financial Astrology did not come to pass.

March, 2009: My supplier informs me that when current stock of Mr. Chugh's books are sold, that they will not be reprinted. He also says remaining stock is low. Always a sad day when good books are lost.



TIMING OF EVENTS - Sumeet Chugh, $11.00
Contents:
Preface; 1. Elements of Hindu astrology; 2. Chalit chakra; 3. Planets & different ascendants; 4. Important considerations in judging a horoscope; 5. Results of various dasas; 6. Transits or gochara; 7. Varshphal in a nutshell; 8. Yogini dasa; 9. Ashtaka varga; 10. Timing of events - case studies.

Comment: This book illustrates the practical aspects of timing events through Vimshottari dasa, transits, Yogini dasa & the annual chart. It also covers the chalit chakra & divisional charts.

In the preface is this curious statement: During these days [1996] many Pseudo-astrologers with little or no knowledge of vedic astrology have been coming out with trash as research papers. These astrologers never tire of self praise praising their own books as the best in the last 300 or 400 years. Nothing can be more shameful than this. These books contain hardly any actual Vedic astrology & is full of catchy slogans, memory shortcut tables etc. All these are doing great harm to the cause of astrology.... This appears to apply to an author whose books are featured on this site, but in the case that Chugh had someone else in mind, I will not mention names here.

Sagar, 130 pages.


DETERMINING PROFESSION & UPS & DOWNS IN CAREER - Sumeet Chugh, $13.00
Contents:
1. Salient features of Vedic astrology; 2. Planets, signs, houses & profession; 3. Determining profession; 4. Judging a nativity for ups & downs in career; 5. Practical illustrations in ups & downs in career; 6. Foreign travels in connection with profession; 7. Nakshatras & profession; 8. Annexure I: Navamsa & Dasamsa tables; 9. Annexure II: Functional malefics & benefics; 10. Annexure III: Planets in houses, malefic, benefic, neutral.

Comment: Unlike K.N. Rao's book of a similar name, this book gives hints at how to determine profession from Vedic charts. Also unlike Rao, the section on ups & downs is vast & includes many notable Americans. The book concludes with travel in connection with profession, and a list of nakshatras & professions, which I cannot recall seeing elsewhere. Superior to Rao's, which was first published in 1993. Chugh's is from 1995.

Sagar, 191 pages.
