The 'Elements of Vedic Astrology' is an excellent and most comprehensive
book on the Parashari system of Vedic astrology written in English.
It treats astrology in a most organised and scientific manner. The
book deals elaborately with mathematical aspects of astrology. Two
important dasha systems, the Vimshottari and the Yogini have been
described. It enters into areas of research, like the vargas, the
sub-planets, and the planetary states or avasthas. Three chapters
are devoted to the all-important subject of the yogas which form the
basis of many an astrological prediction. The Nabhasa yogas have been
dealt with, and classfied, in a most innovative manner. Results of
planets in various houses, signs, etc., have been described in great
details. Several other subjects like planetary strengths, Balarishta,
Arishta Bhanga, determination of longevity, medical astrology, horary
astrology, annual horoscopy, planetary transits, Ashtakavarga, Muhurta
and methods of matching charts for marriage purposes, etc., have all
been dealt with lucidly. The book is profusely illustrated by example

One of the best books on vedic astrology
Reviewer: Paul Urbani from Canada, December 15, 2001
I have read many books on vedic astrology and this book is at the
top of my list. One of the most important aspects of a vedic astrology
book is the clarity in which the information is brought out and this
book meets the best of standards. The second most important criteria
is content and in this regard Dr. Charak covers many very interesting
aspects of vedic astrology and will not disappoint you.
Guranteed A Good Book
Reviewer: Dr. Parihar from Victoria BC, Canada, July 20, 2001
This book is a good book. Dr. Charak is known for his vivid style
of writing, and of course it is guaranteed that the reading would
be an indelible experience. Even if you have no knowledge of Vedic
Astrology, I still would recommend this book without any second thought.
