Introduction from the First Volume

The ideology of the nine planetary deities (the Nava-Grahas) is an important one in our country. All the rituals daily and occasional involve the propitiation of these Grahas. It was therefore thought desirable that the Kalpatharu Research Academy should take up the study on Navagrahas and to bring out a Visva Kosa on these Grahas. When Daivajna Sri K.N. Somayaji suggested that a research programme may be planned on the subject the requested me to undertake its preparation I readily agreed for this work as it would be useful to many.

I thank him for the opportunity and assistance be provided me to prepare this volume. Not being familiar with Astrology, I have mostly confined my attention to the details found in religious philosophical iconographic and general works in Sanskrit.

I have suggested to the Academy that a separate work may be planned to cover the Astrological aspects of the planets and their influence in the subsequent volumes.

The illustrations in the volume include some line drawings from a medieval scroll prepared by one of the palace artists of the court of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III; I am grateful to the great grandson of this artist Sri. Y.V. Subrahmanya Raju the well known painter for permission to reproduce them there are also some drawings included here prepared by the staff of the Art Design Centre (all India handicrafts and design development centre) Bangalore: I acknowledge the kind courtesy of the director of the center.

I am grateful to my friends at Indian books center Delhi for bringing out this second edition of the book.

  • The vol. 01 (in English) talks about all issues related to 09 planets.

    But vol. 02 is weak as to be in Hindi.

  • Anything from the pen of SKR is worth the time studying! I am amazed is not better known and appreciated. An amazing person, scholar and counselor!

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
