This is the Third published volume of Lal Kitab.

This volume has many unique features. Firstly, this is in a pocket book (guTka) format. Secondly, it presents LalKitab jyotish in a summarized format. So as to make it easy for its readers, Pandit Ji makes use of verse in his writing. “Because verses are much easier to remember than prose, therefore, Pandit Ji decided to incorporate verses as an aid to memorizing the basics of LalKitab,” explains Pandit Som Dutt. Numerous LalKitab practitioners have memorized the verses and frequently quote these.

Only in this volume, Pandit Roop Chand hinted towards how he got into astrology and how this knowledge was passed on to him by a ghaibee taaqat (unseen being)

“Kyaa huaa thaa, kyaa bhee hogaa,

Shounk dil mein aa gayaa

Ilm jyotish, hast rekha,

haal sab farmaa gayaa…….”

And later…

“haal sab graha khana vaare,

copy pe likhwa gayaa…”

Also for the first time, numerous important remedial measures are specified.

the amazingly simple Varshphal table for making annual progressed horoscopes. A method of fine-tuning the progression to months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds and degrees is also described.

This book contains almost nothing about palmistry; astrology dominates this volume. and 1940 volumes became somewhat of a challenge for the readers and therefore, Pandit Roop Chand put together a summarized book in a portable, pocket book fashion, a khulaasaa

(a helpbook) of sorts. Pandit Ji was also very eager to share his knowledge with his readers and therefore, he published these books in quick succession.
