Bhrigu Samhita is an astrological classic written by Maharishi Bhrigu in the Vedic Period. This was the first treatise on predictive astrology which formed the basis for further research and analysis.
This book is a concise version of the original Bhrigu Samhita. It is specially written to cater to the needs and interests of both laymen and experts. It provides valuable hints on how to find out the character of a native, his moral inclination, and his fortunes and misfortunes in various walks of life. It also imparts useful information with regard to longevity and prosperity of the native, his parents, brothers and children. Self-explanatory content well-segregated into various chapters would enable not only a professional astrologer, but also an amateur to predict with accuracy the future of the native and form an opinion as to how a planet is disposed in a particular nativity.
