Yes many companies in Delhi do ship books to you, but you need to pay online for that (or send a Demand draft) .
I prefer to go and buy it directly from the shop.

Here is the list of their branches.

Great book by one of Sanjay Rath's students. Jaimini's covered

- Solve your problems astrologically by Bepin Behari
= great book especially for those at beginning level

= everything you want to know on the Rahu/Ketu

= this book covers the intricacies of planets' rulership(s) according to each lagna. A must.

Hi there,

I bought many of my books through VedicBooks.net which is in India (although I am not in India), all of K.N. Rao should be there, if they're not you can always make a query, they have an office abroad and they're pretty fast & nice.
Sanjay Rath & Visti Larsen's can be bought in India too and so should be Prash Trivedi, Behpin Behari, BV Raman.
Ernst Wilhelm's books are hard to find now, out of print or too expensive - but on his website I think you can buy & download the PDF version.
Hart DeFow's books are great, but I don't know if you can buy them in India. Same with Sam Geppi and Liz Greene and James Braha's. But keep looking :D & best of luck!
I'm going to take a close look at yours and look up their reviews!! :wink:

Yes, i saw some of your books, The circle of stars is for 400$ on 1 site?!
Anyways, all KN raos books are with me. But the rest i dont have.
So far my small astro library at home has around 100books of KP, KN Rao and classics. Rest i dont have.
Plus they are so economical*, KN rao books are for 150 Rupees on an average, compared to hard copy edition of harry potter for 1000/- rupees :mrgreen: :wink:

That brings me to another question Dineshji,

When calculating Jaimini Dasha, which options do you use- KNR, Rangacharya's or SR?

Also, one you were going to tell me about significance of wearing yellow diamonds.

Would appreciate your thoughts!
