Jaiminisutras as presented in these pages deals with a system of astrology that has no parallel in the existing methods. The Sutras are hard nuts to crack and Professor Rao has tried his utmost to explain the aphorisms as clearly and convincingly as possible. He is the only scholar in India to have attempted an English Translation of Jaiminisutras.
An Introduction to the valuable Jaiminisutras will be an uncalled for luxury. The profundity and brevity of these sutras have called forth the highest admiration from all readers during the last fifty centuries. My pen is too humble to do them justice or bring their majesty before the public in that dignified form in which the original sutras stand in Sanskrit. They eloquently speak for their intrinsic value. To frame short sutras with comprehensive meanings is not given to ordinary mortals.
Maharishis of Aryavartha alone have framed sutras. None else could do them. No one has done them in the world. It requires not only the command over the Sanskrit language but it also requires consummate scholarship in the science of Astrology and kindred subject to frame sutras. The readers should particularly remember that Jyothisha in Sanskrit means light and the sense which sees and feals the light. It is the clear vision of the Vedas. Of the Vedic shadangas this is the most important.
