Vedic Astrology Shastras Library

Welcome to the free reference library of Vedic astrology. This section is strictly for the authentic ancient Vedic astrology classics.

This page gives the links to the magnum opus, The Brihat Parashara Hora Sashtra of Rishi Parashara, which is the basic foundation and structure of Vedic astrology and most of the other Sashtras are based on this. Hence, I am providing you with the entire Brihat Parashara Hora Sashtras, with the authors notes and any additional comments I felt necessary.

As per the other classics of astrology, well nothing is unimportant! However some are more important than the others. Bhrigu sutras of Rishi Bhrigu, Jaimini Sutras by Rishi Jaimini, the redoubtable Brihat Jataka of the great Varaha Mihira, Saravali of Kalyanavarma, Hora Sara of Pitruvyasa (son of Varahamihira), and Sanketanidhi of Ramadayalu are a must. Prashna Tantra by Neelakanta and Daivagya Vallabha of Varaha Mihira are a must to cover the Prasna or horary astrology. All these classics are in this section – full and unabridged.

Some of the classics differ in their views. This is not because the Rishis who wrote them are fools or less knowledgeable. It is simply because these were written in different times and the changed socio-economic-religious circumstances were different, and hence the different interpretations. In some cases we astrologers also have to interpret the principles a bit differently. For example in some combinations it is said, “The unfortunate man will leave his home land and go abroad”. In those days it was considered unfortunate. Today going abroad is a big thing for many Indians! So the same “unfortunate yoga” of yesteryears is a “fortunate yoga” today!!

So far I have put 18 major astrology classics on site and more will be added soon.
