Introduction
While I was teaching my course on Lagna Vishesha with my small group of students in Chicago, Istumbled upon some material on Varnada Lagna which differed from my learning from my Guru. This isnot an uncommon phenomenon in the jyotish world where viewpoints often differ on interpretations of Sanskrit verses. However, this case was very different. I could see very distinct differences and wantedto dig in deeper into each interpretation. It is only for this academic research purpose that I thought of penning my ideas down in an article and share with the world.Again, the reader of the article should note that the views expressed in this article are of a technicalnature and would primarily cater to the taste of advanced students of jyotish and not beginners. Theviews are also my personal analysis on this subject and anyone is free to differ from them.Vishesha Lagna of Parasara is a cryptic portion of the published book Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra andhence often a subject of debate among scholars. Many scholars believe that this portion is laterinduction into the original pure Parasara Hora by students aligned with the Jamini School of jyotish. Iwish not to comment on that portion of the subject. My views and thoughts along with the model thatParasara wanted to present for Vishesha Lagna is clearly shared with my students. My personal opinionis that if understood, applied and analyzed in real charts, this knowledge can reveal facts which wouldotherwise be difficult to decipher in a person.Also, I wish to indicate that in BPHS, Parasara talks about Varnada Dasa and not just about VarnadaLagna. However, my article would only be focused on the calculation of Varnada Lagna. Analysis and useof Varnada Dasa would be out of scope for this article.Analysis and interpretation of the Varnada Lagna is also out of scope of this article. I have used someworks of Jamini for reference to show viewpoints of other authors on this subject.
