Laghu Parasari occupies a place of pride in Hindu astrological literature. Its principles originate from the gospel book of astrology i.e., Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra. In this short treatise a peculiar and specific way and lucidity has been adopted in presenting the Parasara principles. This short work in a true perspective is the prime and foremost work for those who want to dive deep into the vast ocean of predictive astrology. Vimsottari Dasa or Udu Dasa system, which this Laghu Parasari deals is logical and in vogue since the evolution of Maharishi Parasara's system in Hindu astrology. Truly it is in vogue because it hasstood to the test of time.Sanskrit is the language which has many different meanings for the same word. There are many commentaries on Laghu Parasari by illustrious commentators. Due to above peculiarity of the Sanskrit language, the work got corrupt with many discrepancies rather due to misinterpretations of the commentators. We have tried here to stick to the principles strictly rather than to deviate and vibrate with various commeentator’s emphatic interpretations. Many points of contradictions have been dealt with logically and supporting authorities have been quoted for the sake of authenticity and reliability. Commentaries and views of Pt. Vinayaka Sastri ’Betala', Pt Ram Yatna Ojha and Pt. Seeta Ram Jha have been given weightage as they are upto the mark in understanding Laghu Parasari. This trio is like Hindu trinity of gods as far as Laghu Parasari is concerned.
