Wonderful book for beginners, although not as comprehensive as Light on Life, by de Fouw/Svoboda. Astrology of Seers is still very much worth purchasing. It has some historical insights into Jyotish not covered in other books as a wonderful section on the psychological value of Vedic astrology. He also has a nice introduction into remedials. While he does give chart examples at the end of the book, I have to say that book is not suffcient to prepare you for reading a chart (thus the 4 stars). But it is a good tool for the beginner and is better than other books I've read.
Excellent introduction to Vedic astrology. The BEST part of this book that I have not found in others is a Glossary of Vedic terms. The Vedic terms are a huge obstacle to learning, and Dr. Frawley did what any outstanding teacher would do and made the content student-focused. Whew! Now I can progress more quickly. Thank you Dr. Frawley!
3 stars for providing excellent introduction to the philosophical concepts of Vedic astrology BUT sorely lacking as a practical manual. After reading this book i still have no idea how to read or interpret a vedic chart!
Many books later, I can recommend Bloomflied or Levacy books if you want to learn how to interpret a chart. I am glad I read Astrology of the Seers, Frawley is a true Vedic scholar and his writing sparked my interest in the philosophical foundations of Jyotish. But be warned this is NOT a practical manual and will NOT help you interpret a chart.
A wonderful in depth composite of Dr. Frawley's spiritual research, experience, and knowledge of the Vedic Hindu mythos which are the powerful experiences of the ancient researchers we call seers, those who took the time for daily practice and personally experienced the spiritual energy we can all come to better understand through learning astrology, its symbolisms, its timing of various transits through the astrological chart, and building a better philosophy of life and living a better, more fulfilling life.
