Whatever rules have been stated in this paper for using Sahams, havebeen brought out by extensive trial and error on a few horoscopes. Theydo not have any back up of any scripture, except rule 3 under chapter 5(to be used along with Sahams as explained in this paper), at least notto my knowledge. More horoscopes must be tried with these rules, beforecoming to a final conclusion. I request all to do their own experimentswith these rules. This surely worth more study.1.
 What are Sahams
:Sahams are some sensitive mathematical points in the zodiac. each isrelated to one specific event in the native’s life, for example`Karma Saham’(related to profession), `Vivaha saham’(related tomarriage) etc. Each saham has a formula and those are well explainedin various text books viz `Varshaphal’ by Dr. B.V. Raman, `Vedicastrology, an integrated approach’ by P.V.R. Narasimha Rao.Therefore, we shall not go into the details of calculating sahamshere.2.
Timing using Sahams
:As each saham touch only one event, they can be very useful intiming events. Text books recommends that the sahams can be used totime yearly events in Tazika analysis (a system dealing with annualreading). Of course, these can be used in natal charts alsoalongwith transits of planets – specially slow moving. Say, whentransit Jup occupies or aspects natal Vivaha saham – the native mayget married. But such rules hardly works in actual practice. Dr.B.V. Raman clearly tells that many sahama mostly do not work andmore research is required in this field.There must be other riders in using sahams. PVR Narsimha Rao hasopined in some of his discussions that sahams work better withTribhagi variation of Vimsottory Dasa. Whenever the elapsed periodof the dasa – converted in longitude, is close to the saham, theevent gets triggered. This means that any event will occur only onceis a life time. But in reality a person can change jobs many times,he may have more than one children, he may visit foreign countriesmany times. So there must be more riders.One of my friend once told me that according to one very traditionalastrologer in Kerala, saham’s sukhsma lord’s transit is importantfor timing with sahams. Basically I started working on known chartsand their known events, with the above two points namely placementof tribhagi dasa point and saham’s sukhsma lord’s transit placementsat the time of events. My findings are presented in this paper.3.
Sukhsma lord of Saham 
:Each saham has got a longitude and placed in a particular nakhsatra.The nakhsatra lord of the saham is called Sukhma lord
For ready reference and convenience of all I have given a nakhsatrachakra here – which will be very useful to see who is the sukhsmalord of a particular sahamThe chakra shows the longitude of each pada and also the padas inbold are virgottama padas.Nakhsatra Chakra

 Why Tribhagi variation of Vimsottory Dasa
:While Vimsottari dasa covers 120 deg of zodiac, Tribhagi variationcovers the entire 360 deg. So, it is most useful to see when various
planets, upagrahas and sahamas give their results. BasicallyVimsottari dasa is devided into 3 cycles of 40 years each, to getTribhagi Vimsottari dasa. Each dasa corresponds to a star and allthe 27 stars are covered in this way.5.
Rules observed to use saham in timing events
:For all conjunction, aspects etc. I have considered an orb of +/-5
 to time the events. For example if a saham is at 23Cn40, then whenit’s sukhsma lord is say within 18Pi40 & 28Pi40, I have consideredit to be in trine to the saham point.1. Sukhsma lord of the saham must be either at 3
or 11
 houses (Upachaya) from or in trine to or aspecting natal sahampoint by graha dristi- in transitANDTribhagi vimsottory dasa position (converted to longitude basedon elapsed time) has to be either in upachaya or trine to natalsaham or aspects natal saham by rashi dristi2. Saham’s rashi dispositor & navamsa dispositor will be conjunct intransit in rashi chart.3. Relevant bhaba lord’s rashi dispositor and navamsa dispositorwill be conjunct in transit in rashi chart. This is a Nadi methodand have been mentioned by Sri C.S. Patel in his book “NadiAstrology”In most cases it is seen that rule 1 and either rule 2 or rule 3 orboth gets satisfied.6.
How I have calculated dasa points position at the time of events
:In the case of event 1 below for case study 1, Dasa of Anuradhanakhsatra (Sa) was in operation which started on 21.2.1986 at 213.33deg in Scorpio and was running with a elapsed time of 1579 days outof 2312 days of total dasa period. So dasa point was at Scorpio at alongitude of 222.44 deg [213.33+(1579/2312)*13.333]7.
How I have arrived at the date range of events
:Say sukhsma lord is Jup and it is approaching the natal saham pointat any position and the distance from it to natal saham point is 2
 Considering an orb of +/-5
, the lord has already crossed activationstart point by 3
and at yet to cross 7
to reach the end ofactivation point. Jup takes 365 days normally to cross a rashi (30
).So he travels 12.17 days per degree(365/30
). At this point lord hasalready crossed 3x12.17 = 37 days after the activation start pointand will take 85 more days to reach the end point. From this thedate range can easily be calculated based on the date – for which acheck is being done for an event.This may be noted that I have taken the normal speed of Jup, whereas planet speed always varies. If we take the actual speed of thelord at that point of time, the date range may be more realistic.
