Unrevealed Usage Of Karakas Via Chara Dasha 
An Original Observation
ByRoberto Velicaz, Italy.
Editor: Muhammad Imran, Pakistan
[Roberto is a young astrologer with a humble research oriented mind, his first maiden article deserves great applause and encouragement. Additional applause to M. Imran for being the Editor in piecingtogether this original research in a very lucid and presenting it in a classical style. Roberto remainsindebted to K N Rao for revealing Late
Vemuri Sastri’s Chara Dasha
. The examples illustrated are not for the spoon fed astrologers. - SA]
Dasha is an important predictive technique in Jyotish. It is basically a sign-based Direction and usually ranked top among Phalit Dashas (periods of good-badfruits). Both Parashar
and Jaimini
maintained a fair amount of discussion aboutChara Dasha. Yet, controversies over its calculation and utility still exist. Thefirst reason is the highly terse and complex formation of ancient Jyotish texts and thesecond reason is dozens of their commentaries and annotations. On the other hand, modernliving authorities on Jaimini Phalit Dashas, have abstained to
decode the codes
CharaKarakas and Chara Dasha
(at least in their published stuff). That is why, choosing a flawlesspath has really become hard
for today’s Jyotish learner.
This writ-up intends to highlight an
untold aspect of timing adverse events
through CharaDasha. According to scribe, there is a
direct relation between occurring of adverse event and the running Chara Dasha having Gnathikaraka (GK) in 1st or 6th there from
The particular area of lifeshould scrutinize from relevant divisional chart
(Varga Chakra). Before properly establishing thementioned above thesis, let
first understand the Gnathikaraka (GK) and Varga Chakra.There are many types of Karaka (signifying planet or indicator) in Jyotish. Among themChara Karaka is a special scheme of planetary arrangement with respect to their celestiallongitudes in zodiacal sign. But there are three main schools of thought about total numberof Chara Karakas. First propounds that there should be 7 Chara Karaka (from Sun to Saturn,
Chara is often pronounced as ‘Char’. In Sanskrit,
means dynamic, moving, mutable, living, passage, agent, andherald.

and Rahu should never be used). Second school teaches that Chara Karaka can be 7 or 8depending upon the longitudes of planets. Whereas third cult believes on 8 Chara Karakaand emphasizes to always include Rahu. Following the teachings of 
B.V. Raman
, scribe simply considers the 7-planet Chara Karaka scheme. They are as follows:1)
(AK) means: indicator of 
(AmK) means: indicator of 
(BK) means: indicator of 
(MK) means: indicator of 
(PK) means: indicator of 
(GK) means: indicator of 
(DK) means: indicator of 
 These 7 labels of planets do not compel us to assume just 7 people or 7 areas of life. Aboutthe utility and significations of Chara Karaka, this is a widely prevailed misunderstanding,and it should be addressed. That is, whether a Chara Karaka only signifies the matter it isnamed after, or it can also indicate other relevant areas of life.Historically speaking, every ancient and medieval Jyotish text (in its preliminary chapter)entitles certain name to houses as well as planets. Say, First House as Tanu Bhava, SecondHouse as Dhan Bhava and so on. But the name or title of Tanu Bhava does not imply thatFirst House
rules over body of native, and Dhan Bhava
indicates wealth.Obviously dozens of other significations also fall under jurisdiction of Tanu Bhava, forinstant; appearance, knowledge, colour, nature, strength, comfort and discomfort. SimilarlySecond House deals with various matters, say assets, means of getting wealth, place of securing money, grains, food, joint-family, learning abilities etc. Thus, despite manysignifications, Jyotish authorities labelled First House as Tanu Bhava or Lagna Bhava. Sameis the case with planets as well. Following this logic behind naming, AtmaKaraka (AK)should not assume to only rule Soul, and AmatyaKaraka (AmK) should not consider to justrule Minister or Ministerial Position.

Let’s come to the subject of this article, i.e. Gnathikar
aka (GK). In Sanskrit, Gnathi
simplymeans paternal cousin. But as explained in above paragraph, this label or title does not entailthat GK only signifies cousins. In fact, GK simultaneously shows other significations of 6thhouse from ascendant. Why 6th house? Because, counting downward from Atmakaraka,Gnathikaraka (GK) comes at number six. If all the 7 Chara Karakas should arrange withrespect to decreasing longitude then they are amazingly analogous to significations of FirstHouse to Seventh House. Thus Gnathikaraka shows other indications of 6th house,including; enemy, rival, accident, illness, dispute, mishap, litigation etc.
Basic Rules
First Step
a) First look at the rashi chart (D1 - natal chart) and check to see if Atmakaraka (AK) issituated in the
, 8
or 12
house from the running antardasha
. Atmakaraka (AK) represents the1
house and its significations, the individual concerned.b) Check next to see if Gnathikaraka (GK) is situated in the
or 8
house from theantardasha running in rashi chart
natal chart). Also check if 
GK is in the 1
fromantardasha or
aspects the 1
house of the antardasha
Second Step
If any of the two conditions(a)or(b)mentioned in the first step are met, we next check the divisional charts. We look at
individual divisional chart to see if Gnathikaraka (GK) isin the 1
or 6
house from antardasha running, or GK is in the house from the antardahsawhich represents that particular divisional chart.
Third Step
If step two is also met we can identify a particular area of life that may present difficulties tothe person e.g.; D9 Marriage, D10 Career, D12 parents etc.
Gnathi is also spelled as Jnaati or Gnati. Some modern translators explain Gnathi as community, kith and kin, andcousins. But B.S. Rao in his commentary of Sri Sarwartha Chintamani (vol.2, page 644-645) maintains that Gnathi inSanskrit refers only to paternal side and never to first or remote cousins on the maternal side. J.N. Bhasin translates theGnathi
as people of one’s community. In either case, 6th house signifies Gnathisthana in horoscope.
