Book Description

Bhattotpala, as goes the Sloka 1 or the 70th, the last one, of the book 'Prasanagnana' maintains that he has composed this work in seventy verses on the Horary, the science of queries, branch of Astrology in Aryametre for the benefit of the learned (astologers).

The reader is already familiar with Bhattotpala as a great commentator of Brihat Jataka of Varaha Mihir; and he is belived to have lived in the middle of the 10the century A.D.

This science of Queries is more difficult to practice than the Horoscopy, where in the birth chart can be easily raised and the Prime Principles of Astrology applied. The author has given in Slokas 65 to 69 the method of finding out the Lagna at night. The entire work has not been distributed in the traditional method of writing out chapters on various heads or subjects. Rather, the author beginning with the Duties of both the Astrologer and the Querist dwells on the Chief Principles of this Sacred Science; such as, How to predict the Future Through Omes; The effects of the Bhavas; The Ascendant, its nature and the Aspect of planets; Planetary effects with regard to their Respective Positions. He starts with the possible Queries Regarding from Illness; Loss of Articles and Defeat etc.; Time for marriage; About pregnancy and the new born; Regarding Tastes of the Querist; Dreams; Rainfall; Clue to Theft and Thieves, How to find out the object of Query; Time of conception and recovery of the lost property. So much in these seventy Slokas Bhattopala has contained.

Effort has been made to incorporate lots of verses on similar ideas as propounded in/by illustrious works and writers like: Jeeva Nath, Neel Kanth, Ram Dayalu; Saravali, (Jataka Parijata, Prasana Sindhu, Prasana) Vidya, Prasana Bhairava Prasana Chandrika; Phala Deepika, Bhuwan Deepika and Prasana Tantra, Sanket Nidhi, Shatpanchasika; Prathuyasha, Vasava Nanda and Varaha Mihira, Neelkanthi etc.

Thus every effort has been made to make this little work as comprehensive and useful as possible. The Yogas included provide a new insight in this great science.

I am indebted to all those great or small personalities in the field who have by their best efforts given in the little insight to understand this Science of Queries and Translate their revelations for the pleasure of my readers.

In the end. I am also indebted to Sh. Narendra Sagar for Sagar Publications to fulfill this little effort of mine.
