PreftceMy interestin Jaimini was aroused over 20 years ago yet a college student by a Kerala Brahmin whcn I was astrologer who wagpractisingnear my residence. What struck me most was his admirable analysis of tbe fourth housein my horoscope, according to Jaimini, supported by eloquentquotationsfrom thc SUTRAS. He gave me to understandthen that the 3rd and 4th Adhyayas had beenlost and that they were not to bc found either in print or in manuscriptform anywhere. By about 1936an advocate friend of mine prescnted me with a copy of Jeimini Sutrasin Kannada script which also contained the original sutras of the 3rd and 4th Adbyayas. Tbe Kerala astrologerwas kind enough to interpret the 3rd and 4th Adbyayasfor 4y benefitand I am gratefulto him for this belp. Subsequently shiftedhis officeand I lost he touch with him. Sincethen my interestin Jaimini began to grow and I gathered valuable information tbrough my discussions with Panditswbo usedto visit my grandfather late Prof. B. Suryanarain Rao. I havewith me a number of versionsof Jaimini in Devanagari, Kannadaand Telugu scripts-most of them containingNeelakanta's commentaries. And the present work which I have the pleasure to place before the public is mainty based upon my "STUDIES" educated done during the last fifteen years. Owing probably to the dearthof books dealingclearlywith the principles,and of


scholarswho have specialised this particular branch of in astrological knowledge, Jaimini'smctbodshave not been popular. Consequently is not possibleto say with what it degreeof success principlesgivenby Jaimini could be the appliedto practical horoscopes. But there is no doubt whatsoever that when once the tecbnique prediction as of given by Jaimini has been clearly grasped, considerable rccuracy could be aimedat. In these.STUDIES I have merely endeavoured to make availablein compactand simple form the lcading facts or concepts Jaimini'sprinciples. Certainaspects of of Jalmini such as Dasas, Ayurdaya, etc., whichhave hitherto remained obscure,have been dealt with exbaustively and their slgnificance shown. I do not ctaim originality. But I claim to be the first in India to have given an expositionof Jaimini in English with suitable illustrations. It shouldbe pointcd out in conclusion tbat if this work were to stimulatea more detailedstudy of Jaimini, my labourswill have beenamply rewarded.

Preface to the Fifth EditionIt is with great pleasure that I present herewith the fifth editionof my stuotes IN JAIMINI ASTROLOGY. The fourth edition went out of print a coupleof yearsago and the bringingout of tbe fifrh edition had to be dehyed due to my other preoccupations. This edition has beenrevisedand typographical and othererrorsbavebceneliminated. Jaimini has certain specialfeatures especiallybearing on longevity and Dasa interpretation furnistring fresh materialfor the research-minded. The informationgiven in this book has beenbased on all the four chaptersof the SUTRAS aod has becn tested by me on several horoscopes. In fact as early as 1944, even before I brought out the first edition,I had made predictions based on Jaimini on the horoscopes Hitler and Mussoliniwhich were of remarkably fulfilled. I am thankful to Mr. G. K. Ananthram for having brought out this edition attractively. I hope that astrological savantswill welcomcthis new edition as they have welcomed my other books. all

Preliminary Observations1. Jaimini antl Parasari The Jaimini systemof Astrology upon which these Studiesare based marks a definitc departure from the canonsof Parasari, or the gcncral system of Astrology now in voguethroughoutIndia. It cannot bc maintained boweverthat Jaimini and Parasariarc at completevariance from each other or they are two distinct systems. On the contrary, it seems rcasonableto suppose, that Jaimini is merely an offshoot oi the generalschemeofthcastropropoundedby Parasara, in the works logicalscience for of Parasaraand Vriddbayavana, frequent refcrences are to bc found to the specific and distinct mcthorlology in cmployedby Jaimini. For instance, Adhyaya l, Pada 1, Sutra 5, Jaimini saysthat planetsin the 4th, 2nd and llth from an aspectingbody cause Argalas. Parasara simply confirnrsthis in his I/cra Sastra. Similarly in the matter of counteractionof Argalas, determinationof Karakas, Arudha Lagna,results of Karakamsa, determinationof longevity, etc.,it looks as though Parasaraand Vriddhayavana confirm Jaimini. This might tempt one to conclude that Parasara and Vriddhayavana must probably havc beenlater writers. Sucha conclusion vlouldbe unwarranted progenitor of Vyasa, could because Parasara, beingthe not have lived after Jaimini. The sourceof all astrological knowledgeiu India is undoubtcdly Parasara. Jaimini must
