Inside This Book

First Sentence
Standing on a lotus, with the luster of a red lotus, who has two arms, with a lotus in his hand, the creator of the day, the teacher of the world, whose vehicle is a horse with seven heads, with a ruby crest jewel on his head, making the gesture that grants boons-may the Divine Sun ever grant us his grace. Read the first page

Astrology of the Seers is an excellent introduction to Jyotish, as it is very clearly written, with elegance, and a poetic touch. As usual Vamadeva Sastri lives up to his name, and his book shows it. this is a very "spiritualised" approach to Jyotish, and was very helpful for me to get a foundation in seeing the Grahas as "spiritual beings" or Devas...Vamadeva's scholarship and grasp of the subtle is simply amazing, the mind is illumined by his fine writing, and the heart is melted in Divine Love. all i can say is thank you, thank you, thank you!! Koti Koti pranams to you David!

I am new to Vedic astrology, but this book has really captured it's essence and given me a good perspective into it. It is so cluttered with the amount of important issues that need to be covered it kind of leaves me in the dust, wondering if I missed the green light telling me when to go. Not only that I am to understand this only covers so much and that there is even more to learn, i.e. Nakshatras, ect. Apart from the devastating amount of inspiration I get from just reading this book, I feel I will read it again to fully understand what this book offers on this subject, before reading other books on this topic.

When I signed up for Brendan Feeleys' introductory
course in jyotish (vedic astrolgy), this was the textbook.
Need I say more?
OK, for the person new to vedic astrology, this
is probably the best first step.
It covers all the basics; the philosophy behind it,
the planetary significators,signs,houses, aspects,lordships,planetary periods (dashas), harmonic charts, introductions to medical astrology & remedial astrology, and a bevy of sample charts.
Deep concise and fun! Worth every penny.

Good Intro to Philosophy but Disappointing as a "how to" book Oct. 22 2012
By Nat Kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
3 stars for providing excellent introduction to the philosophical concepts of Vedic astrology BUT sorely lacking as a practical manual. After reading this book i still have no idea how to read or interpret a vedic chart!

Many books later, I can recommend Bloomflied or Levacy books if you want to learn how to interpret a chart. I am glad I read Astrology of the Seers, Frawley is a true Vedic scholar and his writing sparked my interest in the philosophical foundations of Jyotish. But be warned this is NOT a practical manual and will NOT help you interpret a chart.

It is an excellent book for novice in Vedic astrology. July 26 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
David has done an excellent job. He has explained vedic [Hindu] astrology in a very simple way. Well I really do not have many words to express the work he has done.
Well done David.......keep it up.

One of the Best books on vedic astrology!!! June 10 2007
By N.Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Five stars all the way! I initially got this book from the local library... I must have read it atleast 10 times before I knew I needed to add it to my permanent collection. This is perhaps the BEST book to have if you want to start learning the basics on vedic astrology. This book will not confuse you with technical stuff on astrology... I have read 10-12 books by now on hindu astrology and I know how tough this subject is to grasp. This book forms a good foundation on the 'whys' rather than the 'hows'. I highly recommend it.
