2exceeds 90, subtract 90. The remainder may then be divided by 6. The method ofcalculating this, is also given in the authors work named Khet Prakash.9. If we calculate the exact number of degrees still to lapse in the Ascendant (Lagna) and alsothe degrees of the Moon in the Rasi occupied by the Moon and add 240 to the sum ofthese two. we will get the number of days falling between Adhana and Janma.10. If the longitude of the Moon (chandra spast) at Adhana be the same as of the Lagna atbirth, or if the longitude of the Moon at birth be the same as the longitude of AdhanaLagna, we may accept the time of birth as correct. If there is any difference the exacttime of birth could be rectified by suitable adjustments by the rule of three method inthe intervening days.11. The author gives another method for rectifying the time of birth. If there are planets onboth sides (2nd and 12th) of a Bhava be it a Kendra, Panaphara or Apoklima, we maycalculate the difference between the longitude of these two planets and (a) subtracthalf of the difference from the longitude of the planet in the second Bhava, and (b)add the difference to the longitude of the planet in the twelfth Bhava. By doing so thelongitudes of the planets in the 2nd and the 12th Bhava will become identical.12. When the longitudes of the two Bhavas mentioned in sloka 11 be equal, the time of birthshould be located there alone. If there is diference in the longitudes (Bhava spast)suitable alterations may be made by the rule of three process to fix the correct time ofbirth.13. Another method to correct the Ishtkala at birth is as under Note the Parva Tithi i.e.Amavasya or Poornamasi just previous to the birth and work out the Lagna, Amsa etc.at the end of the Parva Tithi. Then we should make note of the following planets: 1)Lord of Lagna at birth, 2) Lord of Lagna at the end of Parva Tithi, 3) The planetpresiding over that part of the day or night, 4) The lord of the Hora or hour at whichthe Parva Tithi ended, and 5) Lord of the Rasi occupied by a) The Sun at a day birthor b) The Moon at a night birth. Leaving off the Rasis occupied by the strongest ofthese five, if the Ansa I rim) of the strongest planet be the same as that of the LagnaNavamsa, or with that of the 10th, that will be the correct time required.14. The effects of various Bbavas and planets in a birth chart can be assessed properly onlyafter working out (the longitudes) of the Lagos, other Bhavas and their Sandhis, andof the planets. The true positions (longitudes) of the planets can be easily calculatedwith the help of an almanac of the concerned period.15-16. The Isht-kala of the planets as of own in the almanac is known as Mishra-mana. If theMjshra-mana (week day, ghaties, pala) is in advance of th e Ishtakala of birth (weekday, ghaties, pala), then such week day ghaties, pala, may be deducted from theformer. The remainder would be subtractive. If the Ishtkala, of birth is in advance ofthe Mishramana, its week day, ghaties, pala etc. may be deducted from the week day,ghaties etc. of the former. The remainder would be additive.The remainder in days, ghaties etc. may be reduced to palas and multiplied by the rate (inminutes) of the motion given for the planets in question and divided by 3600. Thequotient would be additive in case the planetary position relates to a period prior tothe required time, and subtractive when the said period is subsequent to the one underconsideration.17. If a planet is in retrograde motion the process outlined in the previous sloka should bereversed in order to work out its position. In the case of Mandi its position on theseveral week from Sunday will be worked out by a Process of subtraction of 4 ghatiesfrom each day (and finding the Lagna at the time), thus Sunday 26, Monday 22,Tuesday 18 and so on.
