WHAT IS KP SYSTEM ASTROLOGY?
‘Krishnamurti Paddhati’ got its name from the inventor of this technique late Prof. K.S. Krishnamurti (1902-1978), who developed this new technique of arriving at predictions. KP is based on the stellar system of prediction and the ‘Sub Lords’ ‘ the invention which crowned Prof. Krishnamurti and his followers with success. The stellar system was initially developed by two friends, Meena I (late R. Gopalakrishna Row) and Meena II (late N.V. Raghava Chary).
Prof. Krishnamurti was a close friend to both of them. In stead of stopping at the stellar level of prediction, Prof. Krishnamurti undertook laborious research for decades and invented a further smaller division of each constellation (star) in the zodiac based on the unequal proportion f the Vimsottari Dasa system. This he named as ‘Sub’ (that is, sub-division of a star). The entire KP technique is based on proper evaluation and application of these Sub Lords.
ABOUT 6 READERS OF KP ASTROLOGY
Many of you are aware that original KP books/readers were published in 2 volumes in 1966 from Sagar Publications
But many of you may not be aware that the same 2 volumes were later published by Modern Astrological Research Institute, 13 Brahmin Street, Madras 15 in a ‘revised’ edition. In fact, the 2 volumes published by MARI, were under more scrutiny from K. S. Krishnamurti himself, because it was through his own book shop! In fact, in the advertisement on page 26 of Astrology &Athristha (A&A), March 1971 issue you can easily see that the advertisement uses the term “Revised in two Vols”. Note, that the publisher is Mahabala Publishers and Book Sellers, 12 Brahmin Street, Madras 15. So, the MARI edition is a revised version than Sagar 1966 edition.
