What is Red Book (Lal Kitab)

The Lal Kitab is an astrological classic stressing remedial measures to bring about an improvement in the lives of human beings. Many dos & dont’s in behaviour patterns are suggested to improve the quality of living of human beings.

No knowledge is original. All knowledge exists in the universe. As the appropriate time approaches, the knowledge gets channelled through the appropriate person(s) and is revealed in details as per the need of that particular society. This is how the Lal Kitab came into being. This is how remedies & solutions to help people overcome their difficulties will continue to be channelled through successive generations to come.

In the Sai Satcharitra, Shirdi Sai Baba suggests a man to make & offer food to a dog to overcome an acute stomach pain. After offering, Sai Baba talks with great love to the dog to help the man suffering from the pain by eating what he has served. As soon as the dog starts eating, the stomach pain of that man starts vanishing. Those who have read a little bit of Lal Kitab will connect the dog, the sick man, disease & the planet Ketu. The timing of this event would be around the end of the 19th century or the beginning of the 20th century. Pandit Roop Chand Joshi’s name is taken with great respect & reverence as the first to reveal remedies like this through the Lal Kitab. He authored the first work “Lal Kitab Ke Pharmaan” in 1939 dealing mainly with principles of palmistry & physiognomy. This was followed by “Lal Kitab Ke Armaan” in 1940 revealing principles on how to read the horoscope. Both these books were complimentary to each other & were to be read together. Some students & followers of Panditji were having difficulty in grasping the complete system of the Lal Kitab so they requested Pandit Roop Chand Joshi to simplify the process. In 1941, the third in the series of books was published called “Lal Kitab Teesra Hissa” (also called ‘gutka’ meaning ‘synopsis’ or ‘key’). This third book serves as a ready reckoner till date for followers of the Lal Kitab. “Lal Kitab Tarmeem Shuda” was the fourth in the series published in 1942. The last book published in this series was “Jyotish Ki Lal Kitab” in 1952. This last book was the most exhaustive in detail, content & remedies.

What few people know is that this knowledge continues to be revealed to a succession of people by higher spiritual forces from above even today. This is a continuous process.

Lal Kitab is a book which talks about life. A peaceful & happy life involves routines related to daily living as regards maintaining good health, good relationships, avoiding misfortunes, having the means for living a comfortable life such as a house, various facilities in the house which add to our comforts, our professions, interactions with objects, plants, animals, persons, relatives both inside & outside our house. Lal Kitab gives insights on all these different aspects of our lives. As a result, we are aware & sufficiently well informed so that we are able to transform ourselves & experience happy & peaceful living. This series of books is a pioneering effort by Pandit Roop Chand Joshi for laying down principles of “social hygiene & karmic hygiene” through remedial measures. These remedial measures help in dealing with the challenges & problems posed by prarabdh karma.

The importance of karma & the effect of these karmas in giving positive or negative results in the life of persons are stressed upon. Often, a supposedly positive karma like building a temple or charitable home, educating poor children, setting up drinking water facilities & other humanitarian activities can lead to the unlocking of negative karma in the life of these people. In other words, one man’s medicine is another man’s poison. Put simply, remedies from the Lal Kitab have to be understood properly before they are suggested to people. It is much like a medicine given as a remedy for a specific disease. If the disease is not properly diagnosed or the proper medicine not administered in the appropriate dose, then the recovery from the illness is not possible. Worse, if the illness is diagnosed wrongly or the wrong medicine is administered or the appropriate medicine is administered in the wrong dose, then the illness instead of getting better might flare up & get worse.

Therefore, life is mysterious & more like a minefield ready to explode at the slightest wrong move made by a person. With the help of the Lal Kitab & other methods we help clients decipher their lives & help them to succeed.
