Dr. B. V. Raman

Vedic Astrologer Dr. B. V. Raman

Bangalore Venkata Raman (8 August 1912 to 20 December 1998) or more popularly know as Dr. B V Raman was one of the most important astrologers in modern India and an author of numerous books and articles.

Dr. B V Raman spent his whole life in the study of relations between cosmic and terrestrial phenomena. He was able to demonstrate by his writings and predictions made through The Astrological Magazine and other media that the astrological theory of cosmic influences affecting human life is essentially correct. Through a number of books, lectures and research papers, Dr. Raman influenced the educated public and made them astrology-conscious. His special fields of research were Hindu astronomy, astro-psychology, weather and political forecasts, disease diagnosis, natural calamities, management and other areas in relation to celestial phenomena.

Dr. B V Raman restarted The Astrological Magazine in 1936 and was its editor for over 62 years. In fact, this is a unique case of one single individual editing a monthly uninterruptedly for over 62 years and rightly merits a place in the Guinesses Book of Records.

Dr. B V Raman founded an all India body, the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences (ICAS) in 1984 to regulate the study and practise of astrology in the country with Chapters in Bangalore, Madras, Delhi, Kanpur, Trivandrum, Patna and other cities.

Dr. B V Raman was the first to give a rational exposition of astrology. In his book Planetary Influences on Human Affairs, he defends the scientific spirit of Vedic Astrology by statistical data refuting the arguments of its critics.

Dr. B V Raman was consulted for his guidance by scientists, politicians, saints, doctors, industrialists and common man from all strata of life.

Today, the tradition or Jyothish Parampara of Dr. B V Raman is continued by his son, Niranjan Babu Bangalore, and grandson Raman Suprajarama.
