The book is intended to provide a working knowledge of the Yogas which indicate specific horoscopic trends. The astrological mathematics required for this purpose is very elementary. Numerous examples especially designed to illustrate points arising in the elucidation of the Yogas have been inserted and as these are worked out fully, readers should have no difficulty in following the principles clearly. Points of a controversial nature have not been shelved or glossed over. They have been approached from the point of view of their practical applicability.
All planetary combinations may be divided into two broad groups, viz., Yogas and Arishtas. Though by the word Yoga is meant a combination, in actual practice Yoga is always considered to imply a fortunate combination. Arishtas generally deal with misfortunes though they are also included in the generic term Yoga. The Yogas may be Raja Yogas (political power), Dhana Yogas (combination for wealth) or Gnana Yogas (combinations for real higher knowledge and spirituality).
The 'Appendix' on the much feared Kala Sarpa Yoga will no doubt enhance the value of the book. An alphabetical index of the Yogas, to facilitate easy reference, will also be found to be highly useful.
Three Hundred Important Combinations is intended to provide knowledge of the Yogas which indicate specific horoscopic trends. All planetary combinations are divided into two groups viz., Yogas and Aristhas or fortunes and misfortunes. It deals with various standing combinations of yogas. The systematised account of all the important yogas is brought out so that it may illustrate practical horoscopes. The book certainly claims credit for being the first to bring together all scattered information and present it systematically.
