T H E H IN DU B OOK

F or thousands of years the H i nd u A st rologers


have by their knowled ge of the solar sy stem bee n
enabled t o form ulate a system of A str ol ogy which
enables them to spe ak with scientic authorit y and
certainty with res p ect to the planet a ry i nuences
upon m an kin d .

E ach person is bo rn in or un d er one of the twelve


%
signs of the odiac and i s thus in uenced more or
less throughout life by the plane ta ry con d itions at
time of birth .

I n this work I propos e to state the natural ten d


enci es of each person and in a certain way indi cate

what they shou ld do and what they shoul d not do


t o make their life a success .

By referring to your sign which is indica ted by


,

the date an d month when you were born you will ,

see what your natural tendencies are and what it ,

is best for you to do to attract and use unseen


forces and powers which are your birthright and ,

which will aid you to make your future bright .

E ach and every person is n at u r al l v endowed


with peculiar and great powers which make for
good and also a re born with tendencies which must
,

be corrected in order that the higher and good


powers and forces may be able to work to a d van ~

t ags . N o matter how bad your lot may seem to


you and how d i i cu l t it is for you to get along in
,

t he world you can readil y chan ge all darkness to


,

the brightest sunshine if you only go about it in


the right spirit .

T he rst step to take is to x in your mind a


strong desire for what you W ish and persistentl y ,

and patiently hold this desire until you get it ful


lled In India men through the advice of emi
.
, ,

nent astrologers will have an aspiration to aecom


,

p l i sh a certain thing and will persist


, e ntly hold an d

believe they will be succe ssful in attaining wha t


they desire until they get their aspiration satised .

There are three things a bsolutely essential to


happiness and which will always bring success ;

will not help any soul who whines complains and ,

poisoned with pess i mism and they repel and drive

from them constantly millions of good things .

The D evas ( angels can and do help the bright


and cheerful ones who are full of ho pe and as p ire ,

to great and good things ; while the lazy indolent ,

and whining beings are surrounded by low and de


grading forces which keep them always from
,

everyt hing that is good in this world of good


things.

There is a caus e for every effect There i s a .

reason why some men and women are suc cessful ,

and a reason why others are sic k and worried and

It i s always wise to calmly re ect upon the past ;


but very unwise and exceedingly foolish and weak
eni ng to brood or worr y about the missteps we have

tak en . N o matter what happens to you keep a


cheerful and hopeful mind and you will eventually
succeed beyond all your fondest expectations .

Health success and happiness is always abundantly

measured out by the higher and unseen powers to


those who are persistently patient hopeful and ,

cour ageous .
