dians learned the principals of Ancient Greek Astrology and incorporated into their own system. That gave rise to modern “Post Vedic Hindu Astrology”. It must also be understood that ancient Greek reliegion and Vedic religion were very compitable to eachother, so were their mythology, symbology and astrology. The underlying cause of this compatibnility is their shared roots in common Indo-European (Aryan) ancestory. While Greek tradition, strong at the time of Alexander the Great, suffered gradual decline due to lack of scholarship as the golden age of philosophers, mathemeticians and astronomers like Plato, arastu, Euclid ended. The much bigger blow was the abrahemic theology which is much more responsible for decline of these practices. In India, fortunately, Sacred Vedic Aryan tradition was kept alive by the brahamans and patronage of kings. This paved the path of continuation of the ancient knowledge. This work Yavanajataka (lit. the Greek astrology) is a treasure that was lost in the dark ages of time. It has a lot of forgotten (by the Europeans) Greek principals of astrology.Thankfull multitude of these principals are actively practiced in the Hindu Astrology. The folks of European ancestory should read this book to learn astrology as well as to have a glimps of ancient religion of their Greek Forefathers.
