This is the Second published volume of Lal Kitab and is perhaps the
rarest of all the volumes.

This is written as a companion volume to the 1939 "Farmaan" edition.
The readers are clearly warned that without the 1939 edition, reading this
volume may prove to be very confusing.

While the first volume emphasizes palmistry and some Samudrik Shastra,
this book emphasizes astrology. The basics of a horoscope and Lal Kitab
astrology are introduced. By reading the two books together, one can
start to see the close relationship between one's palm and one's horoscope.
There are numerous corrections and amplifications to the first volume through
this compilation. Page and line numbers from the first volume are
constantly referred to.

Pandit Roop Chand wanted to include both, palmistry and astrology in
volume and he had set a personal deadline to finish and publish the
volume in 1939. For personal reasons, he could not include  Lal Kitab
based astrology in the first volume. So he presented the Farmaans (edicts) in
first volume and then the Armaans (aspirations) in the second volume

Each major topic has been presented as an "Armaan." Just like the first
volume, there are exactly one hundred and eighty one (181) armaans
(Chapters) in this volume. measures are given.
Effects of all nine planets in each house are described in brief. Effects of two
or more planets in a house are also described. Numerous unique concepts
specific to Lal Kitab such as "masnoohee" or artificial planets, baalig
or nabaalig (the "adult" and "minor" conditions of a planet), Lal Kitab
Chandra Kundali etc. are introduced. Varsh Phal (Annual progressed
chart)is mentioned but not too many details are given. However, various
illustrative tables are shown so that the practicing astrologer can
determine the strength and nature of a planet before starting the
actual predictive process. This particular part has not been repeated or
amplified in any of the later volumes. It would be a boon to serious Lal Kitab
students to study this portion of analytical methodology.
