(A N A NALYSIS OF T HE COMMENTARY OF SOMANATHA) BY MADHURA K RISHNAMURTHI SASTRI, INDIA. COPY E DITOR: SHANMUKHA [Publisher: As the articles of Sastriji were very
advanced for the internet Jaimini astrologers, we have requested our friend Shanmukha to make extensive notes so that advanced Jaimini adepts can understand many 1st time revealed points by Sastriji even though these articles first appeared in Oct 1962. We hope Shanmukha’s efforts have addressed the complaints we received from Jaimini net forums regarding the new concepts explained by Maduraji, although they are part of the standard commentaries of Jaimini.]
One of the oldest authorities on Jaimini
Astrology, he graced the Astrological Magazine in 1960s under immense persuasion of Late Dr Raman and gave us some rare jewels in Jaimini Astrology. At the age of 80, he lives in a small town in Andhra Pradesh. Incidentally not many in India & West know that Andhra Pradesh has been the land of Jaimini Astrology after Banaras. Revered Sastriji leads a strict Brahminical life along with being very open minded & extremely humble. His humility only shows his supreme mastery over astrology. He and Iranganti Rangacharya are considered as the foremost authorities alive today in Jaimini Astrology. Mr Sastri has supported Saptarishis Astrology right from its inception stage.
