There are 14 classics which are widely accepted by the

astrologers in the present time. Although some other

scripture work is also accepted by several astrologers. But
for these 14 classics, there is no difference of opinion. So
lets have a look over these 14 astrology classics one by


Bhat Parara Hor stra is the most comprehensive extant work on natal astrology
in Vedic astrology described to the vedic i (sage) line according to the text itself. The
text says that this work was taught in the line of Parara muni. As per the mouth of
words, earlier this classic had 100 chapters but at present no one have full form of this

urrently, four different versions of this treatise are available (all other editions
use the text of Pt. Sitaram Jha's version) by Khemraj Press, by Pt. Sitaram Jha,
by Pt. Devachandra Jha, and by Ganeshadatta Pathak. These are all Hindi
editions. The text prepared by Pt. Sitaram Jha based on the manuscript supplied by Pt.
Jeevanath Jha.
The present versions of classic have 13 chapters in the name of remedial measures, which
cannot be grasped easily as Vedic astrology never favors remedy.

Jtaka-Tattva is a standard treatise on the predictive part of Hindu astrology and follows
the Parari system. It is written in Sanskrit. Its author has adopted the Sutra method for
imparting knowledge of Vedic astrology instead of the traditional loka format.

The author of this text, Mahdeva, son of Revaakara Phak, hailed from Ratlam,
Rajasthan, he was a devotee of Goddess Prvat, the consort of Lord iva and well-versed
in medicine, Sanskrit and Jyotia. Mahdeva is believed to have lived from 1842 to 1888.
The brevity of the sutras employed to describe lengthy original passages culled from other
texts is noteworthy. Jtaka-Tattva comprises five tattvas or sections, namely, Saj,

Sutik, Prakra, Str-Jtaka, and Da. These five then are further divided into 13 subsections.


alya Varma, the famous author of this famous work was a king himself ruling
a place called Vyaghrapada, which place some of us trace in modern Madhya
Pradesh and yet some in modern Gujarat. He is also identified as Kmadeva. He
must have flourished before the 10th century as Bhaotpala (966 AD) reverentially
referred to our illustrious author in his various commentaries on works like Bhat Jtaka,
Bhat Sahit etc. A statement akin to Kalya Varma's date as mid-13th century is,
however, incredible. Seeing Bhaotpala's reference and statements by various writers,
Kalya Varma seemed to belong to the 6th century that is immediately after the Great
Master, Varhamihira. During the time of Kalya Varma, there were only a few literary
gems on astrology, viz., Parara Hor, Bhat Jtaka, Hor Sra etc.

The author of this book r Mantrevara is believed to have lived in the 13th century when
this valuable work must have been compiled. His knowledge of Vedic astrology was
profound and the reference in his book to Parara, Varhamihira and other learned
astrologers indicates that he had made a deep study of all the ancient astrological works
existing in his time. It deals in a most inclusive and trustworthy manner with almost all
the astrological aspects of human life. There can be said to be nothing that this great work
has omitted from its purview.

Uttara Klmta is a reference work on Vedic astrology written by Kldsa. However, it
is not the same Kldsa who wrote Raghuvaa and Abhijnaakuntalm. Uttara
Klmta was first printed in the Telugu script. The reference to Andhra dialect, Urdu or
, and other things show that he came after the
sixteenth century.

is use of the words such as Udyoga, got job, mud-cleaning, Smarta, N and ViN, Sarasa-sallapa (a peculiar Telugu expression), Tyjya Kla and others
gives ample evidence to allude that he might actually have been South Indian.

These and other factors convince us that the author belongs to a time after the 16th or the
17th century. The Uttara Klmta contains a wealth of astrological principles which are
derived from earlier works on astrology namely Bhat Parara Hor stra, Bhat Jtaka
& Phaladpik.

Bhat Jtaka is a great classic of Vedic astrology composed by The Great Varhamihira,
who was the famous astrologer in the court of The Great king Vikramditya in the year
57BC. He was also a great astronomer and the first one to mention in his work Paca
Siddhntik, based on our ancient Siddhntas, that the Ayana, or the shifting of the
equinox is 50.32 seconds. Bhat Jtaka contains 27 chapters. This classic is eye catching
due to its chapter 10 Karma- va. The topic source of earning is described in just 4 loka.
Some might feel that its incomplete but Varhamihira shows his genius attribute in it. He
also authored the famous Bhat Sahit.

This monumental work was done by r Vaidyanatha Sri (Dikita). He was the son of a
great scholar Vekaadri. The importance of this work
Parijata cannot be
exaggerated. It is a basic text book of Vedic Astrology, studied almost in all parts of the
country by students and scholars alike. It is a book invariably prescribed for study in almost
all oriental examinations on Jyotia. Among these works is none that can excel
in providing a detailed knowledge about all the essential aspects like
Yogas, Bhavaphala,
etc. The work
has been translated in most of the regional languages like Malayalam, Hindi etc and is
held in high esteem by astrologers as a book of great authority throughout the country.


arvrtha Cintmai, meaning the Gem of superior desires or thoughts, is believed

to have been written by Vekaea arm in the 13th Century A.D.; it is one of the
most important and most cited astrological works particularly on the description of
yoga-formation of planets and the results of those yogas. Sarvrtha Cintmai is one of
the important books of astrology belonging to ancient India. Written in Sanskrit verse it
deals with the effects of each house in the natal chart in far greater detail besides giving
the description about the planets, their effects, lifespan and prosperity. However, it makes
a clear distinction between benefic and malefic indications and their impact, although
that distinction may be prima facie indicating contrary results.

It also provides practical and very valuable comments on the subjects relating to the 12
houses of the birth-chart; in doing so it follows the unique and distinct procedure whereby
the main subject or objects pertaining to a house are first of all stated in the very beginning
of the concerned section and then astrologically explained on the basis of the house
concerned, its lord and its krakatva, and the results, good or bad, declared. Sarvrtha
Cintmai, expands Varhamihiras observation on the subject of profession which is of
paramount importance to all men. This important classic covers the entire wide ambit of
predictive astrology in just 17 chapters.


means eight, Ataka-Varga means eight-fold Vargas. These are the vargas of Lagna
and that of the seven planets. Ataka-Varga is a unique system developed by the genius of
vedic is to assess the strength of planets in transit. Our ancient sages (Rishis) have
introduced such a fine method in the form of
aka Varga Nibandha that can help us
find out the benignity and malignity of planets and their influence on the life of mankind.
The concept of calculation which is used in this classic is not connected with any other
astrology classic. Aaka-Varga is a unique system of Vedic Astrology, the parallel of which
is found in no other astrological system. All the methods are pure mathematical formula.

ven Pthuya, son of Varhamihira, also said that, while general results on the
basis of transit can be known the finer results can only be had from the use of A aka
Varga. This classic also shows a mathematical process to calculate the longevity
of any native. In this classic the focus is on how to use
-Varga in myriad situations
in any kind of chart, be it the Main Birth chart, Varga, Prana, Mundane or the Vara
charts. A comparison of bindus in different houses gives an overall idea of the life pattern.
Principles have been enumerated and astrological common sense invoked. As per the
several scholars, there is no astrology classic better than this that could make an accurate
prediction. By Aaka-Varga Nibandha, all the malefic and benefic outcome of the deeds
of a man can be found out scientifically.


Bhavrtha Ratnkara was formerly a little-known Sanskrit treatise on the predictive part
of Vedic astrology which is believed to have been written by Rmnuja, it had for a very
long time remained confined mainly to the southern parts of India.
does not cover the entire Predictive portion of Vedic astrology as do other standard texts
but selectively lists rules some of which are not to be found in other more renowned texts
e.g. the rule which states that a person will be fortunate in respect of that bhava whose
karaka is situated in the 12th house from the Lagna. Scholars have found many of these

rules to be effective and revealing.

Mna-Sgar is amongst a few ancient treatises which were composed in the primeval
time. Although the exact origin of this text is not known, some scholars trace it to the 16th
century. This astrological text however, has assumed remarkable importance for its unique
and special treatment accorded to the intricate and complex features of this pristine
monograph. This is a comprehensive and monumental primordial text of Vedic science
which holds key too many baffling doubts lurking in the minds of avid readers and astute
practitioners in this field.

na-Sgar surged new frontiers in Da systems. This is the only known

dissertation which portends cogent effects for Aottar and Yogin Das.
These Das have become the tangible components of the horoscope in the
present time and are explicitly referred to for the affirmation of results. In fine, MnaSgar Paddhati, as textual nomenclature suggests, is the unique system of delineating the
horoscopes. It is a complete text explaining the use of much Yoga, different Da systems
and various Cakras. There is no other text which deals with all these lesser known tools
of prognostication in Vedic astrology.


lakaha first time introduced the concept of progressed horoscope called the
Varaphala or the annual chart based on sound astrological principles. The
concept of Sahams and the unique system of Das within a smaller period of a

year are some of the most important contributions of the Acharya. While the natal
astrology gives us a general outline of life of the native the Varaphala gives details of the
events that may occur during each year. Tjika Nlakah integrates the Arabic thought
in jyotia principles (siddhnta). This has also proved to be a good treatise on Horary
astrology. The system of application of aspects in the form of 16 well known yogas is an
added service to Vedic astrology. The work, in fact is not only a classic of the first order
but also a scripture in its own right. Its the most authentic ancient work on Horary
(Prana) & annual horoscopy (Varaphala).

This classic is composed by Pthuya, son of The Great Varhamihira. As like his father,
Pthuya was the finest astrologer. Beside this classic, he had also written Horsra.
Name of this classic a Pacik reveals a lot about it. In Sanskrit 56 is written as aPacaat. This classic has 56 formulas to solve out a query. This classic a Pacik is
useful to understand the meaning of planets placement at the time of any Prana. This
classic became useful when there is no birth chart related to any native. This classic
contains 7 chapters. By having 17 & 12 lokas respectively Chapter 2 and Chapter 7
became the large chapter of this astrology classic. This classic stands equal to the other
two notable piece of knowledge known as ryasaptati and Prana Vidy. As like some
other textbook writers, Pthuya does not contain the Arabic, Tjika & Yavana theories
in his classical work.


Bhat Sahit is a great classic of Vedic astrology composed by The Great Varhamihira,
who was the famous astrologer in the court of The Great king Vikramditya in the year
57BC. He also authored the famous Bhat Jtaka. Bhat Sahit is used in the predictions
regarding to any nation. Bhat Sahit is written in two parts Known as Prathama
Khada & Dvitya Khada. First part contains 57 chapters & second part contains 50
chapters. Each chapter covers a specific matter but chapter no. 2, 14, 16, 19, 23, 32, 33, 40,
51, 53, 68, 69, 74, 78, 80, 86, 88, 99, 103 & 104 are most useful in present day to day life.

ihircrya praises the need of true astrologer in the daily life. Even he
mentioned that how to judge a real astrologer along with it he mentions the
dos & donts for a pure astrologer in this classic. In present time people like to
take help from Vstu stra. Such people think that Vedic astrology has no connection
with Vstu stra. But they actually not know the real Vstu at all. Vstu is not a separate
thing. Its a part of Vedic astrology. Bhat Sahit is the only astrology classic in which a
whole Chapter under the name
deals with the queries of architecture.

In todays time period several time we found that the weather reports delivered by the
metrology department goes absolute wrong. But if we take a look into this classic, we will
get to know several points to trace the actual forecast of any place. That is the reason this
classic is became most interesting in comparison of any other astrology classic in the
community of astrology scholars.
