A Navamsa or D9 Chart is a map of the sky at the time and place of one’s birth. The chart is drawn by hand and includes a map of the constellations that were visible in that part of the world at that time. It can be used to determine the planetary positions at your time of birth, which in turn can be used to predict future events.
On the auspicious occasion of Datta Jayanti (1st Dec 2009), the day of Lord Dattatreya who is
considered the Guru of Gurus and a Guru avatar of Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara, this issue of the
magazine which is a 922 odd page volume is being placed at the holy feet of Late Shri C.S.Patel who
started the movement of removing rare shlokas from unknown manuscripts and presenting it in english for
the benefit of the astrological world and hope that the injustice done to him by publishers of magazines and
books at that time is healed to some extent now. By honoring such a gifted soul who did not have any guru
or parampara or organisation or great money behind him one only exemplifies that even you can also
become a C.S.Patel of Jyotish if you work honestly without craving for position, money or fame but have
true concern of helping the jyotish community and not just for name sake.
