"Astrology the Vedic science of stars/time gained a status of science (Sastra) in the East, especially in India as an undivided part of the Vedas (Vedanga) while it did not gain such a position in the Western civilization even to this day. While astrology and astronomy were developed side by side in the orient, only astronomy was developed in the occident to the exclusion of astrology.

In the Indian context, it is difficult to separate the two disciplines and almost all activities of Hindu society is controlled by them since ages. That Hindu astrology has its roots in the Vedic literature is very well known.

The present volume is a collection of articles written for "The Astrological Magazine "The author deals with an unusual versatility with the abstruse topic of the evolution of time, comparing time with space and clubbing the two as a uni-dimensional force. His thoughts on the fourth dimension foray into ancient Hindu literature on the subject. Some of the articles depict clearly the rationale of astrology, judicial astrology and how it fits with Einstein’s Theory of relativity. He has dealt with matters relating to Kalpas or time cycles, the Hindu Calendar, Indian Chronology, movements of Mars, Saturn, Mercury and Venus and how they affect human affairs, the topic of Ayanamsa, economy and planets, Vastu principles, ground water, gems, sound. His articles on earthquakes deserve serious attention by the seismologists." (jacket)
