Shri Santhanam Award – 2001

Let us forget for a while the artificial controversy of astrology being science or art and start enjoying the great moment of its supremacy over the other disciplines of knowledge. The Times of astrology is presenting here a great soul of scientist who deserted the useful branches of science for the cause of the divine science, the astrology, the Jyotirved wilfully by seeking the voluntary retirement from Defence Research and Development Laboratory in Government of India where he had already contributed much as a senior scientist under high voltage environment of physical sciences including Value, Armament and Space engineering.

This noble soul descended down in Andhra Pradesh in his present incarnation of P. V. R. Rayudu at Vinayanagar ,Saidabad on 7th September 1938 and started his educational sojourn with brilliance from the very beginning. That brilliance started appearing in his academic career of school days transgressed not only to his career in Engineering colleges of Andhra Pradesh but also to other prestigious institutions of Management, Computer learning, Vedanta Sanskrit; and South Indian classical instrumental music where he chose to learn to play Veena, the divine instrument attached to all images of Goddess Saraswati, the only mother of all types of knowledge. This brilliance coupled with a scientific temper he acquired during his disciplined studies and researches thereafter in his work field, has garnished with richness of deep thought and enlightenment, his scholarly articulations in the field of astrology, the divine science, the Jyotirved. His article “Nadi Astrology: An Overview, appeared in Annual issue 2000 AD of the Times of Astrology, the bilingual monthly of Jyotirved, has demonstrated his all skills of writings as well as the quest of divine knowledge of Jyotirved.

Nadi Astrology has been popular since time immemorial in South India, as is the case of Bhrigu or Ravana Samhitas etc in North India. There have also been tremendous efforts to dig out the underlying principles of delineating horoscopes by eminent scholars including the late Dr B.V. and Shri Divakaruni Venkata Subba Rao, the admitted Gurus of Mr.Rayudu. Shri K.N.Rao and Mr.R.G.Rao have also many things to their credit for working in this field of Nadi astrology However, it is the article “Nadi astrology: An Overview” by Shri Rayudu that gives the clearest picture of Nadi astrology in its totality and a fair, honest and almost exhaustive review of the same. The approach of the scholar in this article has been very scientific This approach has been devised by our great seers while teaching Vedanta Darshan in general.

After introducing his subject in his article, Shri Rayudu has narrated the history of Nadi Granthas ab initio before describing the part of procedure to operate with these Granthas or leaves.. Thereafter he has tried successfully to indexify the contents of Nadi Granthas as per their different chapters or Kandams. The learned author has also put forth the Toll claims of Nadi astrologers and examine the same dispassionately with his comments for almost all popular Nadi readers of South India with live illustrations there from covering all aspects of General, Profession, Shanthi or Parihar Kandams therein. He has also included his personal experiences of consulting Kowmara Nadi Vasistha Nadi ,Maha Siva Vakya Tulya Nadi, Kaushika Nadi Kashyap Nadi, Shuka Nadi, Viswamitra Nadi, Vyasa Nadi, Agastya Nadi and Skanda Nadi in Chennai, Salem, Kancheepuram, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Secunderabad and Tirupati from 1968 onwards. Like an ardent student of this science, he has also enumerated some doubts and questions more than 100 in number in Para 54 of this great article, exhaustively.

Before concluding his article with earnest advice and request to all serious researchers in astrology including Nadi astrology to come together exchanging their information freely on the subject through internet and e-mails etc and rich individuals, trusts, government and private agencies Swamis and Ashrams to help financially for researches, he had also set a path with pointing out the concrete issues for required further research on Nadi astrology in Para55 of the article.

The articulations of such an article involving the highest degree of dedication, commitment, perseverance and hard work could not have been possible by an author other than the outstanding scholar and exalted soul with the divine grace from our great seers and savants of Astrology and Vedic Traditions.

Let us commemorate the great modern savant of astrology, late Shri R. Santhanam, the founder Editor of TOA and welcome and honour the Great soul known to us by the name of Shri P. V. R. Rayudu for his valuable as well wonderful article “Nadi Astrology : An Overview”, though he has equally useful other articles published in the Times of Astrology, The Astrological Magazine, Express Star Teller, Vedic Astrology and Today’s Astrologer along with his books, “How to read a Horoscope” and “How to Match Horoscopes for Marriage” to his credit after being well received by the readers throughout the globe.

We pray to Almighty and our Gurus for his all-round success, bliss and longevity .

Live! Long!! P.V.R.Rayudu!!!

Live! Long!! Jyitirved!!!

Live! Long!! Astrology!!!

Live! Long!! The Times of Astrology!!!

Live! Long!! Nishkam Peeth Prakasham!!!
