Understanding the essence (part 4)
Goddess \u00c7\u00e4rada

The Goddess \u00c7\u00e4rada, is none other than Sarasvati herself. Her name \u2018\u00c7\u00e4rada\u2019 means \u2018the giver of essence\u2019 and she gives one the ability to understand the essence of scriptures and various embodiments of knowledge, God and spirituality.

The formation of the Yoga will tell us more;
Formation and Meaning of \u00c7\u00e4rada Yoga
Moon in the first dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba of movable signs, 2nd dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba of fixed signs or 3rd dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba of dual
signs, whilst Mercury is in a quadrant from Moon forms \u00c7\u00e4rada Yoga.

In this yoga, the specific use of dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba is mentioned. The dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba is based on the trines to Lagna (viz. 9th and 5th houses), and Lagna itself, this leads us to the knowledge of the Guru and \u00c5\u00f1i, which resides in the 9th from any house. Specifically when we do invocation of mantra, the \u00c5\u00f1i is invocated1 on that portion which is above the head, and is the place where the intelligence resides, and hence the \u00c5\u00f1i is said to reside on this portion steering the intelligence and giving it knowledge.

The Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba shows the \u00c5\u00f1i presiding over an individual, and whilst there are many dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba charts (5 or more), the specific Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba Chart which shows this is the Jagannath Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba. The calculation of the same has been tabulated:

Table 1: Jagannath Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba
Fiery signs
Earthy signs Capricorn Taurus
Airy signs
Aquarius Gemini
Watery signs Cancer
It can be inferred from the table that the 1st Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba is always a movable sign,
the 2nd a fixed sign and the 3rd a dual sign. This is the case for all signs.

Now if a planet is placed in movable sign in R\u00e4\u00e7i and also the 1st dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba, it will occupy the same sign in R\u00e4\u00e7i and Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba. This is the same for planets in the 2nd dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba of fixed signs and 3rd dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba for dual signs. A planet placed in such a position becomes blessed by the \u00c5\u00f1i as its actions in life (R\u00e4\u00e7i) and its focus (Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba) are the same, and will give blessings.

Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba of the Moon shows the \u00c5\u00f1i who will guide the natives mind in this
world. The Moon shows the native\u2019s attitude towards life, and the chart with reference
1 Invocation of Mantras.

to the Moon will indicate how the native wishes to interact with the world. Jupiter\u2019s position with reference to Moon will indicate the native\u2019s attitude towards money and can produce either Sakata Yoga or Gajakesar\u00e9 Yoga. Mercury placed in a Kendra from the Moon indicates the native is adept and enjoys learning, and when the Moon receives the auspicious guidance by the \u00c5\u00f1i due to its dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba placement, the native will receive divine insight and write about spiritual topics and the universe as were they guided by a \u00c5\u00f1i.

Example of \u00c7\u00e4rada Yoga
Chart 1: Native blessed with spiritual learning and achievement.
In the given chart, the native has Moon in Aquarius in the 2nd dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba, whilst
Mercury is in the 7th from it, forming the \u00c7\u00e4rada Yoga.

Here Moon lords the 5th house and shows that the natives blessing from \u00c5\u00f1is will begin when he is initiated into Mantra or prayers. As Moon is placed in the 12th house he will experience the results during sleep. When the native was running the Maha Dasa of Jupiter and Antara Dasa of Mercury he was initiated into the S\u00e4vitur G\u00e4yatri Mantra which was a custom for his family (Pit\u00e5 K\u00e4raka Venus is in 5th house with Bhr\u00e4t\u00e5 K\u00e4raka - Sun).

It will be noted that the \u00c5\u00f1i of the S\u00e4vitur G\u00e4yatri is Vishvamitra, and as both Moon and Mercury are in Durvasa Dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba, the S\u00e4vitur G\u00e4yatri Mantra would be most excellent for the native.

Now Mercury placed in the 6th house shows research and study, whilst its lordship of the 4th house indicates that this will come through establishment of a school or a body of study, as R\u00e4hu is placed in the 4th house this will happen in country abroad.

When the native began Mercury Mah\u00e4 Dasa he established the Sri Jagannath Vedic Center for the purpose of promoting the study of Jyoti\u00f1a in the world, with its main fraction placed in the USA.

Chart 2: Jyoti\u00f1a
In the given chart 3 very auspicious Yoga\u2019s for knowledge are formed.

\u00c7\u00e4rada Yoga is formed by Moon in 2nd dre\u00f1k\u00e4\u00eba of a fixed sign whilst Mercury is in Kendra, ensuring that the native easily understand the essence of spirituality.


Dh\u00e9manta\u00f9 Yoga is formed by Lagna lord in the 3rd house, and this is coupled with a very powerful Guru Ma\u00efgala Yoga, just as in the chart of Swami Vivekananda. This makes the native a very determined Jn\u00e4na Yogi.


The 10th lord and the 9th lord join in the 9th house, forming Dharmakarm\u00e4dhipati Yoga, ensuring that the native will work towards establishing truth in the world.

On a special note, the placement of Jupiter in the 3rd house, is Marana K\u00e4raka
Sth\u00e4na, and is very inauspicious for the native, and can cause troubles to the houses
