Review by Readers

Surpasses Expectations – "Best Of The Very Best"
Reviewer: Dr. Mohit Parihar (Vedic Medical Astrologer) from Victoria BC, Canada, July 30, 2001
A very good book on Vedic (Hindu) Medical Astrology, Dr.Charak, has explained the relationship between planets and various diseases caused by them. Further the book has astrological cure for diseases. Dr. Charak explains in his own exclusive style use of core principles of Vedic Medical Astrology such as the twenty-second Drekkana, the sixty-fourth Navamsha, the Sarpa Drekkana, including the much ignored Gulika, to decide the outcome and nature of illness. Highly recommended to learn the essentials of Vedic Medical Astrology. It would not be out of place to mention that the Author Dr. Charak is M.S. (Surgery). Who else than Dr.Charak, with the master skills of a Doctor+ Vedic Medical Astrologer would be in a better position to write a good book on Vedic Medical Astrology. Highly recommended. "THE BEST OF THE VERY BEST."
