Comment: Adapted from the back of the book: Maharishi Jaimini advised the use of some of the dasa systems taught by Parasara. Of these the Narayana dasa (also known as the Padakrama dasa) is the best & most versatile. This book is the first ever on the Narayana dasa. The author explains the Argala, Arudha Pada, Chara Karakas, strength of signs, etc. Vara Naryana Dasa (ie, the use of rasi dasas in divisional charts) is explained, with illustrations for each division, including the beginning & ending of the USSR.

For Bill Clinton, Rath gives: August 19, 1946, 3:44 am, Hope, AR. The book was printed in 2001. Long before then, American astrologers had established Clinton's birth time as somewhat later in the day. Rath says he corrected the time from a reported 3:47, is apparently unaware of the later chart.
