Jatakadesamarga is an outstanding work on Astrology and the author, Podumanai Chomadiri known as Somayaji of Poduhouse has drawn from such authorities on Astrology as the writers of Brihat Jataka, Laghu Jataka, Jatakaparijata Phaladeepika, Yavan Jataka Silpiratna, Prasnamarga, Saravali, Naradsamhita etc. He has shown his master mind in the Adhyayas on Bhavavichara, Gunapinda, Ashtakavarga, Bhinnashtakavarga, Bharyavichara and Anukoolya. The last mentioned is a matchless study and is rarely found in the literature on Astrology. A study of these Adhyayas have tempted me to translate this book into English. There is no equal to this work.
