Earthquake prediction is the purest form of Samhita astrology (mundane or collective astrology). All earthquake predictions are based on eclipses and other planetary movements studied on different charts. It is a very tough and tiring work and still leaves so much open to doubt. The main difficulty is that, while in the case of predictions about Indian rains during the monsoon season I have had spectacular successes from 1982 to 1989, I can say that making an earthquake prediction is what caused so much trepidation. I have made only two so far and both succeeded. The prediction of January 2001 earthquake prediction has attracted enough attention. Here is one of many in South Indian press:
A Prediction Comes True
Deccan Chronicle 1/27/2001
It seems that that quake was fated. Astrologer K.N. Rao author of the best selling Astrology, Destiny, and the Wheel of Time in his forecast for 2001 had predicted the country would face crippling natural calamities in the first fortnight of January and also particularly after March. Rao was unfortunately correct. He had in the past predicted Indira Gandhi's assassination four months before it happened in 1984.
