is a book by undisputed top-notch astrologer and writer, Shri K N Rao sahib
that is probably for everyone on this earth who wants to delve into spiritual
character of our country India- known for its spirituality and spiritualists.
There is a popular idiom in English – ‘separating wheat from chaff’.
Professor Rao’s book is executing just this. The author is clearly honest,
straightforward and has presented all evidences and documentation to support
every argument. Astrology is finely meshed and woven in this book – it even
has the rectified chart of Emperor Akbar therein! Charts are presented in
North Indian as well as South Indian format (the author uses the latter type
in his work, as I know). However, it is a delight for astrologer as well as western
tourist who would like to get bare and dare truths about India’s spiritual
image. Personally, I found the chapter ‘astrologer cheat’ most fascinating.
Chapter ‘During the British Indian Days’ was appreciated by my father a lot
for its eye-opening details. Authentic episodes on Lord Krishna and Guru
Nanak ji cannot be left unread. In brief, I suggest this book on shelf of
anybody wanting to know India’s soul. Should be read by a tourist in India
before he or shelves thousands of dollars to a pseudo-guru or fake healer!
Some quoted text pieces from this book:
Page 27: “...In 1963, while I (author, Mr. Rao himself) was walking with Guruji, he told me that in old age I will have serious trouble with my legs. In 2000, thirty seven years later, I was nearly crippled and no doctor in Delhi or Lucknow gave me even one percent chance of recovery. They said that I would never be able to walk ever again in my life.
Smt. Bijoya Chakrabarty, the Water Resources minister (BJP leader from Assam) in the cabinet of Atal Bihari Vajpayee had got me examined by big doctors. I had given her a prediction about her victory from Assam and becoming a minister. She came to meet me again in 2006 and when she saw me walking without even a walker, she stared at me with disbelief and describes it all now as the eighth wonder of the world! No leading doctor had given me one percent chance of recovery she keeps saying now. But she had not told me of the gloomy diagnosis of doctors then.
I was one of the fantastic cases of a patient who was given no medicines. I recovered through prayers only.....”
Page 251: Says KNR on Nadi system of astrology, “...Most of these readings are done from the books or palm leaves or palmyra leaves. As far as I know, the people doing these readings do not know astrology themselves. They have leaves in their possession and they read out from these after finding the correct leaf that pertains to you. These leaves are generally known to reveal some past facts that are substantially correct. But the future predictions tend to be spurious and far less reliable. People who have tested this system have gone to the extent of saying that revealing the names of parents, wife, husband, etc. is the result of Bhoota siddhi and that nothing really is written on those leaves. It is my experience that few Nadi readers sometimes do come out with startling readings which I have verified myself and I am truly amazed by their accuracy. But more often than not they flounder and come out with preposterous predictions too. It has convinced me that Nadi readings, sometimes quite remarkable, are mostly undependable especially for future predictions.
Let me however give you an anecdote of an amazing prediction through Nadi reading that I have myself verified. A reading was given to a person (whom I know very well) when he had three children. The prediction said that he would have two more children and that the last one would be a male who also be a doctor. This doctor would marry a woman who would also be a doctor by profession. Then this (doctor) son would be arrested and sent to jail after a terrible quarrel with his wife. The reading further said that all this would happen because this (doctor) son was a medical man in his previous life and was aborting the children of pregnant women. In one case, a girl wanted to be born but was killed in the womb of the mother. She laid a curse on him and promised to be born as his wife in his present life and take revenge. As events unfolded, all the events predicted happened exactly per the reading. Please remember the reading was given in 1950, the doctor son was born in 1958 and he arrested in the year 2000. All this is most fantastic and I know every detail of this and I have verified it completely.....”
