About this title


THE PANJIKA THE HINDU ASTROLOGICAL ALMANAC From the very beginnings of Eastern civilization, the collective life of the peoples of the sub-continent of India has been guided by the dicta of an astrological system almost totally unknown in the West. The system is based not on a tropical but on a constellational Zodiac, a scheme of such esoteric complexity as to baffle all but the initiated. Knowledge of its secrets was, and is, limited to a small and privileged class of astrologer/priests who made their computations in private and proclaimed the results through the oral grapevine of the priestly hierarchy. With the Advent of movable type came the first volumes of the annually computed compendium of this wisdom. This was The Panjika, and to this day the readings of the priests, as contained in its pages, are followed religiously by millions of Hindus. A believer or any interested party may consult this volume to discover the meaning of dreams, of birthmarks, of moles. He may seek its advice before salting his food, taking a wife, building a house. The Panjika is the only known compendium of Eastern astrological lore; its translation gives us astrolger's other dimension. Politicians may consult The Panjika before they plot campaigns, litigants as they go to court, women as they plan the rearing of newborn children.
