[When a writer works on a 2 line brief froma magazine like this
‘pls test the Kota Chakrain relation to professional setbacks’ and
creates a research piece for furthering theminds of other astrologers, he (the writer)
becomes the ‘most loved’ one of the magazine
& of the astrology community as he shows hisversatility in research and displays openmindedness, a key to great astrologicalachievements. This is what one can state withconfidence about the writer MuhammadImran from Pakistan who has taken to Vedic Astrology with utmost sacredness. - SA]
n Vedic Astrology, nothing ismeaningless and nothing ispurposeless, since it is a divinetradition, spanning over centuries oldforecasting techniques. One of theimportant, yet forgotten methods is
KotaChakra
. But students and experts equallyavoid analyzing Kota Chakra, partlybecause of its complex formation andpartly due to lack of understandings andits hidden vistas.

Kota Chakra is a beautiful example of applicability and attribute implicit in its ownidentity. L
et‟s begins with the name.
Kota
 (
कोट
)is a Sanskrit word, meansfort,fortified  enclosure,building, orpositionable to be defended against anenemy. The word Kota is still in vogue as prefix or suffix of dozens of places in Indian sub-continent. However, inIndian vernaculars, it is also pronounced
Kot
. Rajkot, Sialkot, Umarkot, Faridkot,Patthankot, Ranikot are some of the places, named after very
Kot
. All these cities andtowns have or once had grandeur edifice of fort to defend against the enemy. In Jyotishtoo, Kota Chakra is mirror image of the architecture of real fort, possessing same numberof 4 strata and almost same objective
 
defending the enemy‟s raid
and protecting theself.Kota Chakra (
कोट च
) is fundamentally a figure for transit of planets through 28nakshatra, including Abhijit

), battle (

ण
), death (

मण
), and otherdifficulties attributed to the 8th house. And it is not a coincident thatKota (as real structure) is itself related to the 8th house. Parashara in his Magnus Opus Hora Shastradescribes
fort
in
verse 9 of chapter 11
(note that this reference explains the
fort
in general,not the Kota Chakra). Varahamihira too maintains
fort
, signified by 8th house (
videDaivajna Vallabha: verse 12, chapter 2
). Similarly, Uttrakalamrita of Kalidasa also labels
fort
as part of 
8th
 
house
(
vide Sloka 13 ½ - 15 ½ of Khanda-5
). Hence the name of thismethodology itself reveals its purpose.Over the ages, Jyotish keywords have been enveloped new meanings and newconnotations. In modern day life, setback in career is generally seen from 8th house,rather winning or loosing battle of ancient time. Nowadays, it is quite pertinent tolookat the planetary transits through Kota Chakra for professional setback, transfer,termination, failure and fall from the position.
Construction of Kota Chakra

Durga Chakra
 (

), is a quadrangle diagramcomprising four divisions. Two small squares incubate into a large square that

Stambha
literally means cardinal pillar that support a building. In Kota Chakra hierarchy,it is the central courtyard. This innermost portion of the Kota Chakra is indicated asgreen coloured box in above figure.Counting from janma nakshatra; 4th, 11th, 18th and25th constellation falls in this division. If a native possesses janma nakshatra Rohini thenPunarvasu, Chitra, Uttrashada, and Revati form the Stambha Bhaga of his Kota Chakra.
