The Art and Practice of Ancient Hindu Astrology is an unprecedented work in which renowned astrologer James Braha demonstrates the need for synergy between Hindu astrological theory and actual experience. Its purpose is to provide students with the knowledge necessary to gain a quantum leap in predictive accuracy.

In 1986, James Braha forever altered the world of metaphysics by bringing Jyotish (Hindu or Vedic astrology) to the West through his groundbreaking book Ancient Hindu Astrology for the Modern Western Astrologer. In this long-awaited companion text, based upon transcripts of several months’ worth of private tutorial classes, James addresses what he calls, “the greatest obstacle facing students of Hindu astrology today... the lack of experienced teachers in local areas.” This exciting text, containing nine information-packed  sessions given to student Martin Timmons, picks up where James Braha’s classic text left off and demonstrates clearly why Hindu astrology has always been an oral tradition taught from master to disciple.

The Art and Practice of Ancient Hindu Astrology is an unprecedented work in which renowned astrologer James Braha demonstrates the need for synergy between Hindu astrological theory and actual experience. Its purpose is to provide students with the knowledge necessary to gain a quantum leap in predictive accuracy.

As an “experience-first” astrologer who accepts no astrological technique blindly, the author has thoroughly tested the fundamental techniques of this system. Page after page, techniques that work powerfully are distinguished from those that are mediocre, inconsistent, or unreliable. Although originally designed for intermediate and advanced students, beginners who study an introductory chapter (“Appendix A”) can easily follow this lucid text, saving years of frustration and confusion. Over fifty horoscope examples are included as well as numerous lists demonstrating how to prioritize the myriad positive and negative aspects of analysis that challenge every Hindu astrologer.

 If you love James Braha’s classic text, and want to be the most accurate predictive astrologer possible, this brilliantly conceived book is for you. Enjoy!

James Braha is one of the most respected names in astrology today. His four other classics include: Ancient Hindu Astrology for the Modern Western Astrologer,How to Predict Your Future; Secrets of Eastern and Western Astrology,How To Be a Great Astrologer: The Planetary Aspects Explained, and Astro-Logos, Language of Life. James Braha is known worldwide for his fascinating lectures and workshops. His books are acclaimed for their clarity, directness, and accessibility.

THE ART AND PRACTICE OF ANCIENT HINDU ASTROLOGY; Nine Intimate Sessions Between Teacher and Student


 “This book is jam packed with so much information that students will want to read it many times over, learning something new each time. 
Anyone wishing to gain an improved understanding of Hindu astrology should have this book.  It is one of the most well written, clear and detailed texts on Vedic astrology… James Braha is a master of his craft.  He possesses a fine understanding of his subject, especially in how it is applied in the Western world, and he is able to convey his knowledge in a smooth, easy to follow, conventional style, in plain, easy to understand language!
  After reading it, this reviewer was stimulated to get out and re-read Braha’s earlier classic Ancient Hindu Astrology for the Modern Western Astrologer.  Like that previous book, this new one by James Braha is highly recommended!”
CONSIDERATIONS MAGAZINE

 “Not all of us are able to move to India to learn in a master/student apprenticeship.  Recognizing our crying need for contact with a skilled teacher, James Braha invites us into a tutorial with him.  This brilliant book consists of transcriptions of private classes James held with student Martin Timmons.  James takes us through the interpretation of actual Vedic charts: how do retrograde planets act, what is the effect of combustion, what are the nodes up to, how do you read planets that seem to be both “good” and “bad” at the same time?
James is the author of the all-time classic Ancient Hindu Astrology for the Modern Western Astrologer.  His
New book is an invaluable sequel!”
THE MOUNTAIN ASTROLOGER MAGAZINE

“This book should be added to every astrologer’s bookshelf, not only for its insights, but for its honesty.
There is a passage in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras that states that by speaking truth consistently, whatever the person says will come true.  James Braha has followed that path, and this is one of the clearest and most effective paths to predictive accuracy.
Mr. Braha does a superb job of questioning and analyzing some commonly held misconceptions regarding Hindu techniques, including the seven and a half year Saturn transit called Sadi Sati; the use of remedial measures; and how certain planetary combinations do work, as opposed to the way in which the classical texts say they should work.  This information is invaluable for both the beginning and advanced student, and offers great insight as to how an experienced astrologer’s mind works.”
NCGR JOURNAL

“Quite an amazing work!  Indeed, this is a must-have text.”
LIVING TRADITIONS MAGAZINE

“Highly recommended for ALL levels of Vedic astrology!”
