Several principles on this subject have been indicated in classical texts. Many of them are not available to a large number of modern students. The present study on the subject by Bepin Behari gives various principles on the subject in a very lucid and readable manner. It discussed Dasa system, transits of planets, Astakavarga, Annual Horoscopy and the principles laid down in Tajaka Nilkanthi. It is down in Tajaka Nilkanthi. It is expected that the students and practitioners of Vedic Astrology will find the book immensely helpful.
