The Rahu Ketu Experience is a beautifully written and deeply evocative book on the subject of the lunar nodes in Vedic astrology. Prash Trivedi generously reveals some of the of the erstwhile secrets of the Brahman class of Indian astrologers by writing in a format which is lucid, extremely articulate, highly creative, and very well organized. In addition, (and so unlike most Vedic astrological texts by Indian authors), this book is actually FUN to read!! One is never forced to plow through page after page of basically unreadable verbiage in order to detect glimmers of decipherable wisdom about Vedic astrology, but rather it is all right there, up front, and presented in a highly straight forward manner. The case studies are richly and comprehensively developed, and there is no assumption of reader expertise or prerequisite understanding.
The nodes come to life in this smoothly crafted work, and Mr. Trivedi's wealth of experiential wisdom and human compassion shine through on every page. Add to that the fact that new concepts and new information abound in this work, and it becomes one of the very best in the field. Do you know what your 'Karmic Distribution Control Planet' is? Find out in 'The Key of Life: Astrology of the Lunar Nodes,' a work which is brilliant in every conceivable aspect.

"As a Westerner attempting to study the nakshatras, I've come across many perspectives and works on them, but it wasn't until I read your book that they finally 'clicked' for me and really came together. As a western and vedic astrologer, I tell everyone that asks me for information on the nakshatras that you've finally written "THE" book on them. Thank you so much for making this available for all of us."

I purchased your book "The 27 Celestial Portals" a few months ago and it is excellent! I will
certainly recommend it highly during my talk -
I look forward to Prash's next work - he has done a wonderful job with the

I am a Jyotish student and practitioner in the US and am so grateful for your teaching in your books...I have your lovely new nakshatra book and also The Key of Life. Thank you
for your brilliant educational service to the astrological community.
~J. Swanson, Student, USA
Thank you also for another exceptional book, the 27 celestial portals. You are really sharing vedic culture in
a format that is understandable by Westerners, but that is not an oversimplification. To my knowledge,
it is the only book that gives a good explanation of the Padas and I have found that it is
important to take them into consideration.
I would really like to express my hearty best wishes to you
for writing books on subjects which are so drowned in mystery and
whose knowledge is limited to the few. I went through your 3 books. They are all equally informative and interesting and incite one to knowing /exploring more on subject. Your latest book, seems no exception in this
matter. It is a topic I had been trying to unveil from many years. Everything is so nicely put and presented along with illustrations and examples;it is
marvellous. My congrats and good wishes to you and team.
~Nikhil Bhouraskarr,Software Engineer,India
I really enjoyed your new book about the 27 celestial Portals, specially the drawings and the indepth going of your explanations.
I wanted to say that Prash's books are in a world of their own with their
insight. Thank you for your light and God Bless.
~Bharat Shah , NSW, Australia
I really enjoyed reading The Rahu-Ketu Experience.
Your latest book "The 27 Celestial Portals" is beautiful...priceless..
~Christine, Astrologer, USA
I recently purchased your book on Lunar Nodes and wish to
thank you deeply. You have filled the book with many sparks of
brilliance making it very illuminating.
I was wondering, given your understanding of the Nakshatras demonstrated
in this book... Would you write a book on the Nakshatras?
I know of many, many astrologers who are thirsting for more information
on the Nakshatras, so the book would be sure to sell well.
Thanks again for your very fine work.
~ Hank Friedman, Astrologer from USA
Thank you so much for writing your book, "The Key of Life, Astrology of the Lunar Nodes". I am finding it completely fascinating. Your
interpretations and understanding of the subject is quite amazing.
At the moment I am using your book to prepare a presentation on the nodes. I am a student of astrology ........and this is my first paper. I have enjoyed it sooo much, many, many thanks, and with much appreciation.
~ Patrice Curry
Finally, I'm not sure if I mentioned how excellent I have found your book
The Rahu and Ketu Experience. I've read many Western and Vedic books on the
subjects, but there is some way in which you really convey the personalities
of these shadow planets, in all their complexities. It has helped my work as
an astrologer a lot. Thank you!
~ Susan Applegate, USA
I have recently disccovered your book which I find very well written, and am enjoying it
greatly ~ it is like reading about myself in so many ways
~ John Ryder, Australia
I have recently come across an amazing book covering the Lunar Nodes. The
author, Mr. Prash Trivedi, has an astology practice in London and provides
consulting services thru his excellent website at www.osfa.org.uk. The
initials stand for Orion School & Foundation for Astology which also provides
internet classes in Astrology.
My Rahu MD started in 1995. My imersion in Astology began in 1997, of
course understanding Rahu/ Ketu has been something like an obsession. But to
my chagrin they seem to be truely, the hidden Grahas. Respected, yet
consigned to the margins of analytical techniques. Treat them as malifics
with limited aspects and sign associations. Yet any astologer can wax poetic
all night long about her favorite true Planet.
I believe you will find Mr. Trivedi's views on the Lunar Nodes quite
compatible with the teachings of Hart de Fouw. Mr T. quotes Prashara for all
his reasoning reqarding the influences and significations of the Nodes.
Though he regards Ketu as exalted in Sagitarius, he makes convincing
arguments for making Ketu a coruler of both Scorpio and Pisces!
He makes a strong argument for the beneficial effects of Rahu in Taurus
for many natives. But feels that Gemini is Rahu's exaltation sign while it
would co~rule both Aquarius and Virgo with Saturn and Mercury respectively.
The elegant reasoning is supported by a thorough knowledge of Vedic mythology
and a nuanced understanding of Sage Parashara's teachings.
The more advanced students of Jyotish will appreciate his thorough
description of the Lunar Nodes and many examples illustrating his analysis of
how they will effect a native's Karma. Twenty eight historical figures are
used to illustrate the principles. We are talking about a book of 382 pages
with, for example, 44 pages covering appearance, attributes, significations,
rulership, etc. aspects, motion, timing and symbols for each Lunar Node. The
writing is clear and concise and directed to our generation of astrologers
connecting the Vedic ideas to our experience in the West.

Dear and respected Mr. Prash Trivedi,
I congratulate you on writing a wonderful book on Rahu and Ketu.
It is perfect in every sense.
~ Pawan Kumar, Gurgaon, India
I listened to you speaking about the vedic perspective on a recorded
interview ~ it was good to hear that there are others out there who are
prepared to challenge/question the modern day world~view which as we know is
very much conditioned by Maya's illusory influence.

~ Vineet Gupta, Astrologer from India
I have just finished reading your book and must follow the impulse to congratulate you
and thankyou for writing it.
Your theory in particular about the nodes being linked to ones
grandparents and ones genetic inheritance is truly amazing.
I have never read any account of the nodes which is so exhaustive
and you ought to be congratulated over and over again for writing this.
~ Kumkum Jain, India
I'd like to thank you for your inspiration and the knowledge you share with all. After studying your book on Rahu/Ketu, I understand much better, why Rahu is included in the temple~muhurta (Brahmasthan temples in India). Thanks also for sending so quickly the Sunpower~book. I'm really enjoying your writings, and I hope there will be more coming. Thanks again and keep going.
First let me congratulate you on publishing "The Rahu Ketu Experience", which is really very very detailled compilation explaining the facts on them. I am an Architect pacticing in Ahmedabad, India and developped interest in mystic over last few years. Hence I studied little of Atrology, Vastu, Reiki etc. which gave me insight in to the cosmic world.
~Tushar Modi, Ahmedabad, India
Your book, The Rahu/ketu experience was one of the first books I ordered
from India. I *so* enjoyed your
book. Thank you.
