9780140195071: Light on Life

The various astrologies of India have, over the course of many centuries, been combined and transmuted into a rare, fascinating and intricate discipline known as "jyotish" (light). Still an intrinsic part of India's religious and cultural life, it is also a universally applicable model which can easily adapt to western conditions. This book seeks to present jyotish not simplistically, but in a way that makes the subject accessible to the modern western reader, and at the same time to place it in the context of the many other disciplines - including philosophy, medicine, economics, astronomy and religious ritual - which it embraces.

Book Description Penguin, New Delhi, India, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. Jyotish or Indian astrology is an ancient and complex method of exploring the nature of time and space and its effect upon the individual. Formerly a closed book to the West, the subject has now been clarified and explained by Hart deFouw and Robert Svoboda, two experts and long-term practitioners. In Light on Life they have created a complete and thorough handbook that can be appreciated and understood by those with very little knowledge of astrology. Jyotish states that by considering the state of the cosmos when an event occurs, we can begin to understand its nature—and to prepare an appropriate response. Although there are similarities with Western astrology there are also profound differences. Jyotish is, above all, infused with the religious, psychological and physical spirit of India. This comprehensive and enlightening book on the subject will prove a necessity to every astrologer or student of Indian thought. Printed Pages: 440. Size: 13 Cms x 20 Cms. Bookseller Inventory # 011350
