Striking Principles and Precautions-Lal Kitab ( Red Book of Persia)

ॐ श्री गुरावे नमः !
ॐ नमः शिवाय!

The author of Lal Kitab has enunciated such significant principles of astrology
that stand well tested today and as such they are of utmost importance in
our day to day life.
Residential Houses
No temple with idols should be constructed even for individual worship in a residential house. However, keeping photos or drawings of deities on paper is not prohibited.

This is highly
inauspicious for the natives born with Jupiter in 7th house.
If there is a small dark room at the end of the house, where there is no passage for air or light, the same should be left as it is and no attempt should be made to facilitate natural light through opening windows etc. in that room; otherwise, misfortunes will strike the residents.
Places where ornaments or money is kept secretly must not be left empty. If there is nothing to be kept, please put some dry fruits there.
There must necessarily be some non cemented place in a house. But if it is not feasible, the articles related to Venus must be installed and established there in.
Safe Delivery and Longevity of Children
•Worship of lord Ganesha is highly auspicious for children and property.
•For safe delivery of children, a milk pot filled with milk and a sugar pot filled with sugar must be touched by the delivering mother and kept at some different place.
After the delivery both the pots
should be offered to some temple and should not be brought back from there. Good effects will multiply if the quality of the pots is good.
•If one’s children do not survive the native must distribute salty preparations in place of sweets, to celebrate the birth of the child.
Alms and Charity
•Digging of wells or providing drinking water facilities for public is strictly prohibited for those
with Moon in 6th house of the birth chart. Any violation of the above would invite utter destruction and extreme poverty.
•Building of Dharmshalas (Free Dormitories), Sarais or inns is strictly prohibited for those having Saturn in 8th house.
•Saturn in Lagna and Jupiter in 5th house cause death of children one after the other, if copper
coins are given in charity.
•Jupiter in 10th and Moon in 4th cause false allegations and critical legal proceedings against the native if he builds temples or Gurudwaras.
•Financial aid to widows and scholarships to poor children are strictly prohibited for those having Venus in 9th house.
•Grave consequences would follow if a native with Moon in 12th house opens schools for free
education, or offers food to religious saints and Jogins .
•Anyone having Jupiter in 7th house must not offer clothes to anyone in charity
•Donations in the morning and evening hours by persons having Sun in 7th or 8th house of their horoscope will produce highly harmful and poisonous effects.
The younger brother should never go for adoption of children of the elder brother. At the same time he should also not arrange the free marriage of the daughter of his elder brother.

These practices
would certainly lead to disastrous consequences.
Selection of Bridegrooms ( Depends on culture, it could be Brides also)
•Saturn in 11th house makes the native desert his wife and children in young age, whereas Saturn in the grooms 2nd house proves inauspicious for the bride’s family.
•Mercury and Rahu combining in houses 3, 8, 9, or 12 of the groom is also inauspicious for the
bride’s family.
Venus and Ketu together in Lagna make the native impotent.
•The groom is likely to be of bad sexual habits and may destroy his wealth in that, if the planetary positions are as follows :
(a) Sun in 6th and Mars in 10th with the afflicted 12th house.
(b) Moon in Lagna and Jupiter in 11th house .
(c) Jupiter and Venus in 10th house.
Universal Remedies
•Sweet loaves of bread, specially baked in Tandoor, should be offered to animals every month for warding off sickness, quarrels and other troubles, caused by Mars negative in the horoscope.
•Place a pot of water under the head side of the bed at night and pour it on a tree or plant in the morning.
Taking meals in the kitchen is a strong safeguard against the mischiefs of Rahu.
•From one’s own meal a Chapati or a piece of it must be offered to cows, crows and dogs for
all round well being and prosperity.
Further, we all believe that going to a temple for offering prayer is always a good thing, which must be admired and encouraged. But according to Lal Kitab, the native having a malefic planet, especially Saturn in 8th house, when 2nd house is empty, must not visit temples or other places of worship, rather he should bow his head from outside.

Similarly, if planets occupying 6th, 8th and
12th houses are inimical to each other and 2nd house is not occupied by any planet, the native must avoid visiting temples and other religious places of worship.
The most striking thing about Lal Kitab is that it enshrines due admiration for Vedic culture and philosophy of the Hindus.

Living in a joint family has been suggested as a powerful remedial
measure and if for some reason this is not possible the native should sleep on the bed sheet which was used by his father.

In other cases the native has been asked to obtain the blessings of parents

and elders etc. as an amulet against the evil. It is worth pointing out that such simple and innocent remedies have worked wonders in tested cases.

There are many things in this book which have been observed through a most critical eye or most negative viewpoint, well one way it helps to see the worst scenario but in second way it increases the worries of a already worried soul, so people with little or no knowledge of Astrology should read and practise these remedies or suggestions with caution, most important is mental worries, control your worries and then proceed.

A stable mind and peaceful disposition of a person can handle any adversity, but on the contrary, if a person has a fickle mind and panic ridden soul, any small thing might effect him/her in a very grave way, so please follow precautions while checking your charts.

Any remedy should be observed for minimum 40 days or weeks, and observe for any changes in your mental, and physical health, your routine, your profession, your family relations, their health, etc. etc. once everything appears to be good then continue.
