Pulippani Jothidam (300 Astrology Rules from Ancient Tamil Work) by Nakkirar S Natarajan
The time of Sage Pulippani is not clearly known. Some say he lived in 3000 BC before the start of Kali Yuga. Siddha Pulippani and Pulippani are one and the same. The importance of Pulippani Jothidam is the way in which, most of the astrological principles have been explained in just 300 verses. People in Tamil Nadu still refer this great work when any such combinations as stated in the book is found in a chart. Some of the Yogas are very clearly explained like a yoga which is called as Tharai Yoga which means like the summer rains which comes with lightning and thunder, wealth and property will come. A very good explanation is available on the Raja yogas. The results arising out of some of the conjunctions of planets have also been given elaborately not found in most books. Next is the long list of Dhana Yoga combinations which are worth reading and found to be true in majority of the horoscopes. There is a section on Bad yogas too. Certain horoscopes have been blessed with the grace of God, combinations for such charts have been provided. The results on account of transit is worth reading. The final part is the results for each Mahadasa and in its each Antardasa.
The aspects of Rahu and Ketu have been much under debate, yet one does find 5, 7 aspects mentioned in some works. Here Pulippani Jothidamis the only work which talks about the 3rd and 11th aspect of Rahu Ketu. Over a period of 3 years we have found this 3 and 11 aspect of Rahu Ketu working subtly and finely. Readers are requested to experiment on it further.
With so much information in 300 verses is a real achievement. Many astrologers in Tamil Nadu have stated that the ocean of Astrology has been compressed in just 300 verses. The rules stated therein are very concise and are effective ones. One can rely on such statements ofPulippani while giving predictions.
Introduction about the Author of The Book, Sri Nakkirar Natarajan.
Sri Natarajan is now 94 years old and lives in Chennai. He has already given his contacts details in the Introduction part. But a proper introduction of him is essential for the readers to understand the author.
Many of you would have heard about the name ‘Nakkirar’ one of the Tamil poets who argued with Lord Shiva and was burnt alive (and of course brought to life later by Shiva).
So the story goes on like this for our Nakkeerar Natarajan. A big Astrological conference was being held in which stalwarts like Dr. B.V. Raman was present. It was a seminar like thing. One astrological principle was being discussed and Sri Natarajan was the only one who had a view which was exactly the opposite of all other Astrologers. So he challenged all those present that his views are correct. When he was asked to explain his views and after hearing his views, everybody totally agreed with him. Pleased with his explanations and his adamancy in sticking to his principles, in the same conference, he was praised that Natarajan has stood like the poet Nakkeerar in his views. Hence he should be given the title as Nakkeerar and the same was conferred on him in the same conference.
