Read his opinion about our work


From a note in one of his books, we learn that Prof. P.S. Sastri, M.A., Ph.D., D.Litt, was born on January 22, 1920. He holds degrees in English, Sanskrit, Telugu, Philosophy, has Ph.D degrees Rigveda, Aesthetics & Coleridge, and D. Litt. in Indian Philosophy. He is the retired head of the Department of English at the University of Nagpur (retired 1980). He was president All India Teachers Conference Varanasi (1950).

He is the author of nearly 60 books on literature, philosophy, English & Telegu, as well as the author and/or translator of a number of books on astrology. He translated Astrological classics and authored works like: Jaimini Sutram; Uttara Kalamrita; Brihat Jataka; Rectification of Birth Time; Secrets of Astakavarga; Text Book of Scientific Hindu Astrology (2 Vol. Set).

It is said the natural lifespan of man is 120 years. Sastri has reached but 2/3rds of that. In Kali Yuga, he is elderly yet brimming with wisdom & experience. Most people do not live long enough, do not have good enough health in their final years, to attempt what Sastri has attained. In Prof. Sastri, we glimpse what the world could be like, if we lived just a few years more.

On pages 77-78 of "Tried Techniques of Predictions & Some Memoirs of an Astrologer", K.N. Rao says, "Parasara has given 55 dashas & Jaimini 44 according to P.S. Sastri whom I rate as the best living astrologer of our decades. He was trained in the Vedas from childhood and can speak extempore in Sanskrit for four hours without notes. He is a double Ph.D. and he was the head of the department of English in Nagpur university. His English translation of Jaimini Sutras is the best I have seen. Yet, he has the modesty to say somewhere in the book that astrology has to be learnt from the right guru as he found many sutras to be too terse." 

Note: September, 2004: We hear that Prof. Sastri has passed away. It is a great loss.
