About the Author

Dr. Shanker Adawal, the author, is a management professional. He has over the last thirty three years worked with various prestigious corporates in India and abroad. His experience of working with L&T, Xerox, Tata, Nortel and with a leading energy major of the country, alongwith a Jyotishacharya from Varanasi gives him the perfect blend of intellect and logic. The son of a bureaucrat father and an educationist mother, he is a graduate in Economics (Hons), Masters in Business Economics from Delhi University, PhD in Economics and complementing his skills with software and other leadership programs from Singapore and other countries.

His passion has been astrology, a passion that fell his way in childhood, a zeal that he picked from his father. As a child he often saw his father, a bureaucrat and an astrologer, getting admiration from many eminent astrologers, which inspired him. He used to spend long hours participating in intellectual debates that his father used to have with his friends and fellow astrologers. With thousands of books in his library, free consultations through magazines, television, portals and newspapers around the globe, he continues his journey on his passion. He has been felicitated and awarded for his contribution in this field. He also has keen interest in Human Rights. He can be contacted at connectingminds@gmail.com

The notion that astrologers can unfold lives and reveal what waits at the next bend is a thought that comes to all and populist claims have inspired the author to come up with a series of books that will discuss the various aspects in astrology, putting together the research and findings by various groups and the experience gained during his journey. The purpose of the encyclopedia is an attempt to put a clear understanding of the process of astrology, taking into account the first basic principles and dealing with different topics. The encyclopedia which would consist of over eighteen books, is intended to be brought out over a period of two years. These would cover the basics in astrology and then go on to the predictive techniques, the nadi astrology, tajik, yogas, nakshatras, rectification of birth time, vargas, dashas, mundane prashna, muhurta, remedy and other aspects of interest. The advantage of this would be that both students and those who want to pursue research can progress the understanding of this science in a systematic manner. Also the complete set will be of great value to those in India and abroad who want to understand various levels and will give them the flexibility of dwelling into the complexities in a coherent manner. With the growing interest to learn this science in various countries, the readers there will find this series of books very useful.

Tajik is an important aspect in the journey of our understanding various aspects of Astrology. This is the endeavor of the encyclopedia. In this book I have divided the study primarily in two parts. The first part dealing with various factors like the yoga, aspects and so on with an explanation of factors that makes Tajik different and unique. The second part dwells in the predictive aspects with illustrations. This book will surely evince the interest of the beginners as well as others who are in research or predictive astrology.



This is the next book in the series for the encyclopedia that I am writing. After dwelling on the Basics of the Parashari System and the Yoga’s that tell the basic strength I am in this book writing about ‘Tajika Shastra’.

The Parashari System and the research done by the sages centuries back when there were no computers —Astrology - the science of predicting the future probabilities was amazing . The links lost we are still researching to discover.

The Devas & Asuras had at all time the desire to get answer for their queries and offshoots developed the ‘Prashna’, Horary & Varshaphal . The Urdu word Tajik is synonymous to Varshaphal and is popular in Northern India.

The Tajik Shastra or the annual horoscope resembles the Parasashari System in a number of ways. The backdrop is the same but there are intrinsic rules that have to be studied.

The Tajik chart and study has two important aspects. The period is for one year and the transits. I want to caution that the Annual Chart should not be read in isolation and has to be read in conjunction with the Birth Chart. It then tells the right time of an event to happen or promises that may not materialize. This makes it unique and an important tool in predictive astrology.

In the Tajik Shastra the importance is to understand the Aspects, Strengths, the Yoga’s and the most important is the applicability of the Dasha System.

I have in this book systematically dealt from the advent of Tajika Shastra and then into Tajika Aspects , Yogas , Strength Of Planets, Sahams, Tri Pataki Chakra and the Dashas. Tajik is Distinct in a number of ways which makes the difference and so need to be read keenly.

The second half of the book goes into the predictive aspects dealing with salient features, the first basic principles, the mathematics in casting the annual chart, and then the interplay between the Muntha, Lord of the Year, Maasa Chart and the House Wise Analysis.

I have found Tajik Shastra principles very profound and there applicability has lead to accurate predictions.

This book will fill the great demand for a scientific and easy understanding of the Tajik System. Its uniqueness has provided amazing results.

I am sure it will be a book which will be useful to all who are interested in the field of Astrology; the learners as well as those at different levels of research and understanding.

All this inspiration to write comes from my father Late Shri K.C.Saksena for whom this science was like a religion and had done a lot of research. Also the blessings of Shri Bake Bihari of Vrindavan who tells that the only constant factor in life is change.
