K.P. Astrology Books

Books and Books and Books and ……. So I am writing a lot about books. I have written about books on classical astrology and books on Lal Kitab (at least you have download links now.) I am also planning to write all books available on Lal Kitab subject. Recently there are lots of books on this subject that are not just translation/transliteration.

Anyway, I am often asked about what book one should read to lean KP System. Nowadays there are many books on the subject. KP's own publications brings few new books every year in the market. But I have my own opinion. IMHO one should read only six readers by Sri K.S. Krishnamurti i.e. -

1. Casting the Horoscope (1st reader)
2. Fundamental Principles of Astrology (2nd reader)
3. Predictive Stellar Astrology (3rd reader)
4. Marriage, Married life and children (4th reader)
5. Transit Gocharapala Nirayam (5th reader)
6. Horary Astrology (6th reader)

These books will give you sufficient idea of the system. I am not very sure but probably "Astrology & Ahrishta", the magazine edited by Sri KSK, is also available in hard-bound format. If that is available, you can purchase them. Those are another good way to learn Krishnamurti Padhdhati. Other than Sri KSK's own books, there are not too many good books to learn the system. I remember two other books those are sufficient good. One is "Nakshatra Chintamani" (as far as I remember the name) by Mr. Bhat (again I don't remember the full name of author). This book is available in xerox format only. Other books are three books set by Mr. Jyotindra Hasve. Primarily these books are in Marathi and I am not aware whether Hindi/English edition is available or not. But I guess it would be available. As I told in introduction there are many books and many authors. But these are the books that I like most.

P.S.: I also receive lots of requests for available KP software. I am planning to write in detail about that. Meanwhile you can have a look on KP astrology software of the company promoting this blog.


  1. There are at least 76 books on KP Astrology including 4 books by late Mr Chandrakant R Bhatt. These 4 books are:
    1. Nakshatra Chintamani
    2. Further Lights on Nakshatra
    3. Horoscopes & Diseases, and,
    4. Nirayana Horoscopes and Western
    These books are still available in their original form. The single source to buy any book on Indian, Vedic and KP Astrology is,

  7. Hi I am learning astrology from ICAS (praveen)Bangalore .I am really confused whether using so many combination aspects Karakatwa Bhavat bhava etc can anyone predict so well as i see seeing past events is ok but to predict is really tough job. Since i am feeling like Lost when i see all of these but very much interested to lean the same as well. Suggest whether KP system is easy to learn or Parashara System ?

  8. Kiran ji, KP System is definitely easy to learn and less confusing than Parashar system.
