I already published over 490 articles (one a day) on various topics of Vedic Astrology in my blog starting from June-1-2008. I got many thousands of e-mail expressing their appreciation of my articles and the blog. I trust the contents of my blog are very useful to amateur astrologers, who desire to master the subject. I publish the Horoscope Analysis of Bhagavan Gautama Buddha in a serial order in nine parts starting from Sept—8—2009.
Gautama Buddha was one of the greatest saints produced in India to spread human values and reform the practices like casteism, other superstitious practices in Hinduism prevalent in his period. He called Dharma (right behaviour). Later it got shaped into a separate religion “Buddhism”. He is adored by millions of people all over the Asian Nations as supreme God.
