Book Review of "Science of Light" by Freedom Cole
Review by Michael Laughrin, Michael@jyotish.ws
"Science of Light" by Freedom Cole is an excellent new book based on "Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra," perhaps the most important classical Jyotish text in existence.
Mr. Cole's new tome is a kind of translation of Parashara and yet, it is much more. I find that I cannot put it down since it crossed my desk about a week ago. The book is much clearer than Parashara itself. Mr. Cole's writing style is lucid, interesting and deeply insightful.
Every serious student of the Divine Science should have this book in a prominent position in his Jyotish library. This book is, in my opinion, the best volume on Vedic Astrology published so far in the 21st century. Every time I look at it, I find something new, profound, and thought provoking and I have been swimming in these Jyotish waters for 21 years now. THIS IS A MUST BUY BOOK!
The author is learned in Sanskrit and Ayurveda as well as astrology itself. He divides his time between the United States and India.
This book is available at www.amazon.com.
