L a g h u P a r a s a r i o c c u p i e sa p l a c e o f p r i d e i n H i n d u astrological literature. Its principles originate from the gospel book of astrologyi.e.,Brihat Parasara Hora sastra.In thiJshort trcatisca pcculiarand specific way and lucidity hasbeenadopted Irr prcscnting the Parasara principles.This short work in a true pt'rspectiveis the prime and foremostwork for thosewho want to dive deep into the vast oceanof predictive astrology. ' Vimsottari Dasa or.Udu Dasa system,which this Laghu Parasari deals is logical and in vogue since the evorutiofi of Maharishi Parasara'ssystem in Hindu astrology.Tiuly it is in -vogue because has stood to the test of time. it Sanskritis the languagewhich has many different meanings for the same worcl. There are many commentaries on Laghu Parasariby illustrious commentators. Due to above peculiaiity of the Sanskrit language, the work got corrupt with many discrepancies rather due to misinterpretations of thl commentators.we have tried hereto stick to the principles strictly rather than to deviateand viberatewith various commentator's emphatic interpretations.Many points of contradictions have been dealt with logically and supporting authorities have been quoted for the sakeof authenticity and reliability. Commentaries and views of Pt. Vinayaka Sastri ,Betala,, Pt Ram Yatna Ojha and Pt. Seeta Ram Jha have been given weightageas they are upto the mark in understanding Laghu Parasari.This trio is like Hindu trinity of gods as far ai ta[hu Parasariis concerned.

Man has been curious to know his future since the dawn of human civilisation and will be keen for the same in future also. This is more due to his never satisfying nature with his present conditioning. His hopeslie in astrology and in a broader sense of in the science future which comprisesof astrology,palmistry, forehead reading etc.Vhrious methods are adopted in astrology for anticipating the coming events but primary factors like planets, hbuses and signs more or lessremain the same with all of them. This work is primarily concerned with the characteristics acquired by various planets due to their lordship of. various houses.Most auspicioushouses are the 1*, 5thand 9tr'houses which form the vertices of an equilateral triangle. Most 6th inauspicious houses are the 8th,1l-th, and 3'd houses in the descendingorder. Basicallyplanetshave inherent beneficand n'raleficnature. The words iuspicious and inauspicioushave been used in this commentary oi this work instead of benefic and malefic. The former are ipecific here for good and bad characteristicsof the planets due io their house lordships. A natural malefic can be auspiciousor givesauspiciousresultsduring his Dasaor Bhukti for teing the iord of an auspicious house. Like wise a natural benefic ian be inauspicious during his Dasa-Bhukti simply by owning an inauspicibushouse.The resultstold for the planets in thislext are different from the results of natal horoscopy. The results of natal horoscopy are of permanent nature and occur with more or lessintensiiy through out life. The results described here are of temporary nature and are limited to Dasa-Bhukti

periods only. Though results of Rajayoga combinations are sometimesevident through out life in some measures. The lords of Trikonas are of the sameelement a.d therefore are friendly to each other bestowing auspiciousness.Thus they are consideredauspicious in Dasacontext. The lords of Kendras form pairs of friendly and unfriendly planets. Though friends, still they are of opposite nature. Therefore they aie saicl to suspend their inherent beneficor malefic nature in Dasacontext and behave as neutrals to form Yogas with Trikona lords. Maharishi Parasarahas said at length about various types of Dasas but the great Maharishi has himself concludea tnat Vimsottari Dasa system is the best among all of them. Though Astottari, Yogini and KalachakraDasasare also used bv the rank and fileof astrologers; but vimsottari Dasa is widelyaccepted one. Maharishi Parasara says.

Ec+ ftvilrrfr iqr Eyn{qr ffif,r{!
Vimsottari Dasa is supreme in Kaliyuga, The zodiac is of 360oand every side of an equilateral triangle formed i' it sweeps 120o.There are2z Naksairas in the zodiac and 9 Naksatrasfall within 120o. This 120" correspondsto 120 years of Vimsottari Dasai.e.,6 yearsof the Sun; 10 yearsof the Moory 7 years of Mars; L8 years of Rahu; 16 yearJ of Jupiter; L9 years of Saturn;17 yearsof Mercury; T year:s Ketu ana ZO of yearsof VenusDasa.1oof zodiacstandsfor 1 year of Dasa.Some astrologersusually interpret 120yearsas full longevity of human being but it is a wrong inference.120years is just the total of the Dasa years of nine planets. of course in them also fall Maraka Dasaswhich usually end the life of an individual. Vimsottari Dasais one such scientificmethod to time good and bad periods which is based on the principle of trine or Trikona (Triangle). It was practiceamong ancient Hindu writers not to talk of the principles but more stress was laid on applicability considering what is said to be divine. The Sun is the central star of our planetary system. tf we start from the Sun, the orbits of various planets are as under :

Laghu Parasari'JatakaChandrika


Sury Mercury, Venus,Earth, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn' If instead of thesun, we keep earthas the pivotal entity then the orbital order will be: Earth, Sun, Moory Mars, )upiter, Saturry Mercury and Venus' Rahu and Ketu are also considered as planets, though in reality they are simply the intersection poinls gf-ihe.plths of earth and lhe Moot. These two nodes have their fixed place in the zodiac. Rahu is the point from where the Moon starts to her northem course and Ketu is the point from where the Moon starts to her southern course. Rahu and Ketu thus are the magnetic point points which have retrograde motion and arrive at the same L8 years.Solar and Lunar eclipsesoccur due to these uft"t "n"ty and after every 18 years almost similar ecliPsesoccur. two nodei Due to uniformity of their moiion theseare also the time rectifiers. Rahu-Ketu pto.rid" important clue to demarcatethe exact path and location of the Moon. Due to this property, the ancients included Rahu-Ketu in the Dasa scheme.For being northern intersection point Rahu finds a place between Mars and Jupiter and being southern intersection point Ketu is placed between Mercuryind Venus. The sequenceof Dasasarrived at is : Sury Moory Mars, Rahu, |upiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus. Rahu finds a place after first three planets and Ketu after next three planets i.e., Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury' one interesting fact which supportsvimsottari Dasa system of L20years is, thit, after 120 years, the Sun and the Moon are again on the sameNaksatra and the lunar date is again t\e same #it *ur 120 years back. In this way Vimsottari Dasa is Trikona (trine) Dasa of lunar mansions. Whatever may F Naksatra of iirth r2o years of Dasa end at the 9ft Naksatra from the birth Naksatra. For calculation purposeswe start from Aswini Naksatra and finish up at Aslesacovering 9 Naksatras. This is the first cycle involving 120 years.The 2dcycle starts at Magha Naksatra and finishes it lyurtu Naksatra.similarly the 3'dcycle starts at Moola Naksatra and finishes at Revati Naksatra.


Laghu Parasari-JatakaChandrika

The allotment of Dasayearsto various planets is due to their practical visibility in the ecliptic. The planets are actually visible in the sky in the sameNaksatra or in trine to it again at the expiry of their Dasayears.For example if Mars is visible now in Aswini Naksatra then after 7 years,he will be visible again in Moola i.e., exactly in trine to his basic position. Geometrically some of the planets are at the same longitude while others are in trine to it after the expiry of their alloted Dasa years. This is for their practical visibility. Thus we seethat Dasa years are dependent on the practicalvisibility of the planetagain at the samelongitude or in trine to the sameor trinal Naksatra. This also supports that Vimsottari Dasa system is a Tiikona Naksatra Dasasystem.

Following the Hora Sastraof Maharishi Parasara, to the we best of our knowledge prepare a work Ududayapradeepafor the delight of astrologers.

Notes - UdudayaPradeepa seemsto be the name assigned to this text by the author of this work. Udu meansstar,Naksatra or constellationwhile Daya meansDasaor the period. Thus the name implies a lamp clarifying and enlightening the readerswith the principles of Ududasa systemor Vimsottari Dasa systemof Maharishi Parasara.As the author followed the principles of Parasari Hora therefore this short work became famous as Laghu Parasariafter the name of Maharishi Parasara. There existed a vast literature on astrology in the form of works called Horas and Samhitaslike1. SkandaHora,2. SaunakaHora,3. Brihat PrajapatyaHora, 4. Manittha Hora, 5. Kaushika Hora,6. SatyaSamhita,T. Brihat of Hora, 8.

For this sequence there is a reasoning which we have discussedin introduction briefly. The first sequencein the table below starts from Krittika Naksatra which is ruled by the Sun and ends at Poorva Phalguni ruled by Venus,means,if the Moon is in Krittika at birth, the Dasa at birth is of the sun.

Example- Supposethe Moon is just enteringChitra Naksatra at birth, then the native will have a balanceof 7 years of lvtrars's Dasa at birth. But such would not be the case always, if it occupies, some intermediate degree then the balance of Dasa has to be calculated by the method of proportions. SuPposethe Moon has covered 3o-20'in Chitra Nakshatra, the balance of Mars'sDasaatbirthwouldbe 5years and3 months.Theformula for calculating Dasa balanceis :
=@ DasaBalance

x Dasayrs.of Naksatralord.

Again, as an examPle,suPPosethe Moon's longitude is 46o at birth. Then she is in Rohini Nakshatra ruled by the Moon. i.e. Rohini extends from 40oto 53o-20o the Moon is yet to traverse 7o-20'in Rohini. Degreesyet to be traversed in Rohini = (53o-20' 46") =70 -20' = M0' 800' But 13o-20'= .'. From the formula, the Moon's Dasabalance at birth = # x 10 years = 5 years, 5 months.

Calculations of Bhukti periods Suppose we want the Bhukti Period of planet B in the Dasa of planet A. The formula is :


LaghuParasari-Jataka Chandriha

Bhukti Period of B = A's Dasaperiod x B's Dasaperiod 120 In the exampleabovein Moon'sDasafirst Bhukti will be of the Moon. .'. Moon'Bhukt' I 1ox1o 10 =-izd- =T Years

and so on upto the Sun'sBhukti: Now for calculatingthe Bhukti at birth, the Moon hasalready crossed(10years- 5 year and 6 months) i.e.4 yearsand 6 months remain as balance.The total of Bhuktis upto Jupiter's Bhukti above is 4 years and 3 months. This means that the native has monthsof Saturn'sBhukti alsointheMoon's Dasa. experienced3 In other words the native born is running the Dasa of the Moonwith a balanceof 4 yearsand 6 months including a balance of 1. year and 4 months of Saturn's Bhukti. Bhuktis yet to be followed in the Moon's Dasa will be of Mercury, Ketu, Venus and the Sun to be calculated as above. Similarly, Pratyantar Dasacan be calculated ih each Bhukti. For more elaboration on Dasa calculations readers may go through our "Secretsof Vimsottari Dasa". The years and months calculated above are based on solar year therefore it is necessaryto adjust the Dasas and Bhuktis with the dates of the solar year or in consonancewith the Sun's degrees of birth. Phala Deepika (19/4) is very clear in this respect-

About General Know How-

Followers of Parasari system can get proficiency regarding planets and twelve housesfrom other works based on Parasari systern. From here onwards we are going to depict nomenclatures,technicalterms and principles which are peculiar to Naksatra Dasa system (Vimsottari Dasasystem) according to ParasaraHora Sastra. Notes-The author by the wordgffi seemsto declarethat this work is not for new entrants in the field of astrology but supposesthat his readershave knowledge about houses,planets, signs and other details available in other standard works on astrologylike Brihatfataka, Phala Deepika,JatakaParijata and Brihat ParasaraHora Sasha etc. All theseworks are available from 1\4/s Ranjan Publications. Some of the topics which are to be learnt from thesework are : 1. Housesand their significations, 2. Nature of the signs,3. Planetsand their nature,4. Vargaslike Navamsa,Drekkana, Hora, Trimsamsaetc.,5. Chandra Yogas, 7. 6. Rajayogas, Stri Jatakaor FemaleHoroscopy, Ayurdaya or 8. longevity etc. Somegeneralindications of various housesare: 1. The 1't house representsphysical body and strength, happinessand sorrows, contours, complexion, character etc.


Laghu Parasari'Jataka Chandrika

2. The 2"d house represents face, speech, wealth and right eye,Maraka effectsetc. possessions, 3. The 3'd house representscourage, mental inclinations, coborns,short journeys,ear etc. 4. The 4ft house representsmother, happiness,conveyanges, house,landed propertiesetc. 5. The 5th house represents intelligence, Atman and subconciousmotivation, children, merits etc. cuts enemies,theft, debts,diseases, 6. The 5h houserePresents etc. and wounds, miseries, disappointment 7. The 7ft house representssPouse,marriage, trade, travel, blame, impediments, Maraka effects etc. 8. The 8ft house representslongevity, death and its cause, legacies, insult, sorrows, impediments,chronic illnesses, wills, goods of the dead etc. righteousness, goodliness, 9. The 9fthouseindicatescharities, grand childrery religion, father, long journeys preceptor, etc. house indicates profession,rank, honour' success, L0. The L0th meansof livelihood, day to day activitiesetc. 11. The L1hhouseindicatesgains,elder brother,friends, Soup etc. associates misery,loss,waste L2. The 12th houseindicatesexpenditures, etc. Similarly, an astrologer should be well versed in the knowledge of ownership of the signs,quadruplicity and triplicity of signs,masculinity and feminity of signs,directionsrepesented for by the signs, Badhaka-sthanas movable, fixed and common sig.rt us the Lagna, Karkatwas of planets, planets as Karakas of various houses, bad houses,planetary stateslike Deepta, Mudita etc. The knowledge of Panchangaor ephemeris is very essential. The author wants his readersto use the aboveknowledge in this work too, but the auspiciousand inauspicious nature of

if rt

Laghu Parasari-JatakaChandrika


planets differ here from their natural beneficand malefic nature. A cruel planet in normal course may become an auspicious in this work under certain conditions. Similarly,a cruel or malefic planet's aspect may be for the good under the conditions. Here is where Dasa-Bhukti predictions differ from general predictions for a nativity. The cruelity and gentlenessof the planets will have to be decided according the principles laid down in this work. Man's character,family conditions, status, authority fall under the domain of general prediction which by and large of depend on the natural characteristics signs and planets and their relations among themselves and the peculiar conditions mentioned above.A man has to struggle in this world to pregerve his rights and status, and to achieve something worth while further. During the course, he finds opportunities, when he effortlessly advancesand other times inspite of his best efforts, he doesnot succeedin his endeavoursand suffersset back. It is this Dasa system which can guide a person,for which time is favourable and which one is unfavourable. Astrologers have devised many kinds of Dasa systems according to the best of their knowledge and wisdom, for one to be aware of conducive and inconducive times ahead,out of them Udu dasa system or Vimsottari Dasa systemis the best and applicableat all times. . The natal planets in a nativity bestow good or bad results accordingto their strength,placementand otherwise,which are the permanent results for a nativity. The same planets by their motion in transits and in their Dasasdepict the favourable and unfavourable times, the predictions can only be said to be completewhen we arrive at theresultant effectsto be produced by the natal significationsof planetsand Dasaperiods.For more convenience can include the transit of planetsalso.Therefore we herethat while predicting by Vimsottari Dasa the author stresses system,the astrologershould also keep in mind Bhava or house results. In Naksatra Dasasystemor Vimsottari Dasasystem planets are termed auspiciousor inauspiciousor evil according to their


Laghu Parasari'Jataka Chandrika

house or Bhavalordships e.g.,in Vimsottari Dasasystemthe Ll.th lord is termed inauspicious but it does not mean that he will always be bad for income. An exalted planet in the 11th house or its lord in exaltation produces a Yoga for much income but the 11ft lord will not produce good resultsin his Dasaparticularly or with the lord of a will produce evil results,unlesshe is associated trine or Trikona house. In this way we have to proceedfor Dasa results. The Bhava or house results are the permanent results occuringalways,while the Dasaresultsaretemporaryand pertain to good or bad for the tirne being.Dasaresults are indicative only of the conduciveor irconducivetimesduring the Dasa. In Dasa system, it is only Rasisor signs which are vital and we do not have to follow Chalit chart or Bhava chart. If Cancer rises at birth then Leo will be on the 2"dhouse, Virgo on the 3rd and Libra on the 4'h and so on. In Dasa system all planets will have to get somehouse lordship compulsorily.In a Bhavachart it sometimeshappens that a sign may extend to two house cusPs while the other sign may not fall even on a single house cusP' These divisions are man made and are not to be found in the heaven. Therefore our Maharishis did not acknowledge it. Aspects of planets -

i.e. the 1st sthand 9'hhousesare odd when the Lagna is an odd sign. If the Lagna is even, then even signs are identical to the 5th and 9thhouses.Thus Tiikona lords can never be the 3'dand l.L,n house lords. In the Sloka it (sR) word has been used in the context of evils of Tiishadayadhisas the lords of the 3d, 6m i.e. and 1Lfthouses then the meaning of the Slokawould be"If. in a horoscopeall the Trishadayalords be evil then all the Tiikona lords be auspicious". qR word is not to be interpreted that way.

A benefic Tiikona lord if he happens to be the lord of the 6m or 8thhouse at the same time should be treated as somewhat auspicious. A malefic Trikona lord if he happens to be the lord of the 6th

If beneficsplanets are the lords of Kendras (quadrants), they do not yield good results.If malefic planetsown Kendras, they do not yield bad results. Trikona lords i.e.,the lords of the 1",5\ and 9e housesbecome stronger increasingly. Tiishadaya lords i.e., the lords of the 3d, houses also observe or follow the same trend. 6thand L1th Notes-In the preceding sloka we studied the nature of Tiikona and Tiishadaya lords. Here the nature of the lords of Kendras is being told. Natural malefics are the Sun, Saturn and Mars. Natural beneficsare Jupiter, Venus,Mercury and the Moon. Beneficsby owning quadrants do not yield good results.But it doesnot mean they becomeinauspicious,rather they losetheir beneficenceand behave as neutrals. Similarly,natural maleficsby owning quadrantsor Kendrasdo not yield evil results.But it doesnot meanthey becomeauspicious, and behaveas neutrals. rather they losetheir maleficence Mercury are termed The weak Moon and malefic associated They term the strong similar to malefics by somecommentators' Moon and Mercury (aloneor combined with benefics)as benefics and quote authorities like Brihat fataka in their support, It would not be out of place to mention that the Moon is weak from the 8'h day of dark half or Krisna Paksato the 76 day of the bright half or Sukla Paksa. Again, are we to include the tagna in Kendras or not ? Differencesof opinion ponder over this. Earlier it was pointed out that Sri VinayakaSastriexcludesthe Lagna from Tiikonas at one place but at a later placehe includesthe Lagna in tikonas.

This is a common feature in this material world. The above comforts are denoted by the 4th,1g't' and 7thhouses.It is therefore quite understandable and natural for the lords of thesehousesto forget their own inherent nature. The part of the sloka suggests that the houses or house lords of the samecharacterbecomestrongerthan the and 10th houses previous one as they comelater i.e.,the L't, 4'n,7h and their lords becomestrongerin the ascendingorder.So does the 1."t, and 9thhousesand their lords.

Such interpretations are totally at variance with thosc of others and may presentcertain difficulties in the interpretation of Slokas relating the effectsof the lords of houses for certain ascendants.Theseare the areaswhichrequire certain amount of and elaboration. research In the earlier Sloka to this we were told that a tishadaya lord be'hea natural beneficor malefic works for the evil in Dasa context and a planet becomesauspiciousb! owning Trikona house. The author in this sloka tells about the way a lord of If be Kendra behaves. natural benefics Kendralords then to give auspicious results, they should also be lords of Tiikonas. So is also the casewhen natural malefics becomelords of quadrants. If Kendra or quadrant lords are to becomeevil, they should own Trishadaya houses i.e., the 3'0,6ft and 1lft houses additiorially. of Auspiciousnessor inauspiciousness a planet is not causedjust to ownership of a Kendra. The word ztR here implies that due no planet causesgood or evil simply by owning a Kendra. The s-ftild Tgffir {sr*rfc*lt 12th sloka of the text denotes-Eqs q qtftrrqgd:lt ForKarka orCancerlagna,natural ffi @ malefic Mars becomesthe 10thlord and is supposed to be auspiciousin Dasa contextfor not being a Kendra lord but due to his lordship of the Sthhouse,a tikona. To show the inertness of Kendra lord to do good or evil, the above Sloka has been put in the text and confirms that a Kendra lord is neither for the good nor for the evil. The Lagna is the primary Tiikona as well as Kendra. It is therefore, the Lagna lord (a Kendra lord) becomesauspicious by owning Lagna as Trikona only. But if he also owns the 6s, a Trishadaya house, he produces evil. Mars owns Scorpio Lagna, his evil is less than Mars (the 6ft and 11slord) of Gemini Lagna where he is twice evil. Evil of ScorpioLagna'sMars is even less than Saturn (the 6th and 7th lord) of Leo Lagna, for Mars also owns a Trikona, the Lagna. The Lagna lord being lord of Kendra and Trikona becomesRajayogakarakaor greatly auspicious. Mercury is Rajayogakarakafor Gemini and Virgo Lagnas. So is

The 7'hhouse is the 3rd Kendra and according to the text it is a Maraka or death inflicting house and its lord is becomingaMarakaby owning calleda Maraka.Anaturalbenefic the 7th house is not good. The 7thhouse being an odd house, therefore none of its lord can be a Trikona lord and henceits lord cannot be auspicious. The 7'h lord can only be 6'h lord house) and hence he is evil. (he cannot own the odd 3'dor Ll,th The 7thlord can also be the 8'hlord, then he is dreadful. The 7th or lord Saturn can only be the 6th 8h lord and no other 7s lord can own a Trishadayaor Tiikona house. Saturn is the only planet who can become the 6thor 8'hlord being the 7th lord. Therefore excepting Saturn all the planets being lords of the 7thhouse remain neutral. But as Marakas the benefics as the lords of the 7thare inauspicious.It will be explained ahead. For Scorpio Lagna Saturn is neutral being the 4thlord but resultantlyinauspiciousby owning the 3d housealso.In contrast Venus is more malefic for CancerLagna as he owns the 4thand lord is more evil L1h house and according to r-dcTt{dftdq Ll"th than the 3rd lord. For Leo Lagna Saturn lording the 6th and 7th is more evil than Venus who lords the 10th and 3rd houses. For Gemini Lagna Mars owning the 6th and Llth houses is deadly evil. Similarly Mercury for ScorpioLagna is twice evil if he does not occupy the 8th house.The 8th lord in the 8th eradicatesthe evils of the 8th lordship, it will be discussedlater. Saturn is more auspiciousfor Taurus Lagna than for Libra house and the Lagna as he lords the strongestKendra, the L0th strongestTiikona the 9'hhousefor TaurusLagna;the 9thand 10th lord is stronger than the 4'hand 5'hlord. For Leo Lagna, Venus but and Saturnboth own Kendrasand Trishadayas Venusowns the 3"r house while Saturn owns the 6'h house besides both

Laghu Parasari-JatakaChandrika


owning Kendras. Due to ownership of Kendras both become neutral but the 6'h house being more evil than the 3'd house, thereforeSaturn is more evil of the two. For ScorpioLagna Saturn is more evil than Mars. The reasonis that Mars though owning a strongerTrishadayais alsothe lord of a Tiikona (the Lagna) which considerably reducesthe evil of the 6'hhousebut Saturn is purely a Trishadaya (the 3'd)lord and neutral being the 4thhouse lord. An evil Ti'ikona lord is always less malefic than an evil Kendra lord. For CancerLagna Jupiter is certainly lessinauspicious than Venus and Saturn. Similarly for Capricorn Lagna Mars is more evil than Mercury. Before arriving at the final judgement, the position of the concerned planet i.e., debilitation, inimical or friendly house placement,exaltationetc.has to be seen.This is very important to as this book professes teachthe additional points peculiar to the Parasarasystem. As was pointed out *+r; qFil-;zrvn€Td:, principles of other works should be understood and must be augmented by the principles propounded in this book. Astrology is a vast ocean and a number of works have to be learnt for acquiring proficiency, as Varaha Mihira says: ffigP1-6]fi4q; I wrd-av-{: |vgl.d qgrfd qril.o-*. s[ifi-6t{?rdn; works must be supplementedby Also, the study of classical patient research and experience.The grace of God and preceptor'sblessingsessentiallypave the way for making precise predictions.

If the 7thand Trikona lords are related then in Trikona lord's lord's Bhukti Rajayoga greatly auspiciousresults or Dasaand 7th are experienced but in the end one has to experience Maraka results also.For example, if for an Aries Lagna native the 2"dand 7h lord Venusis related to Jupiter the th and 12hlord then in the end of Venus's Bhukti in Jupiter's Dasa there will be Maraka results. Venus is double Marakesahere. The last part of the Sloka 11 tells that the blemish of being the 8thlord does not imply to the Sun and the Moon. Much has been said about this under the noteson Sloka 9. Generalising the discussionon Sloka 10-1Lwe can conclude thus(i) If the benefics owning Kendras are in their own signs, in Kendrasthey bestow auspiciousresults. (ii) If the benefics owning Kendras are also Maraka-sthana they give intenseMaraka lords and occupy Maraka-sthanas results. (iit) If the benefics owning Kendras are in auspicious houses i.e,, the L"t,the 5ft or 9s and are related to their lords, then they are Yogaproducing and bestow great auspiciousness. . alongwith some Maraka results. (i") If Kendra lords are in inauspicious houses then they give inauspiciousresults.

(v) If the benefic7h lord (Kendradhipati) is relatedto a Trikona lord he bestowsYogaor auspiciousresults in the beginning of hisBhukti orAntardasabut in the end givesMarakaresults. Some say that benefics by owning quadrants become Papa or evil. If benefics would have been defective or evil by owning any of the Kendras then how the Lagna lord would have bestowed good results even by owning the most inauspicious8h house.Then all the exercisedone abovewould have been a waste. Therefore the logical interpretation is that benefics Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and the Moon become severe Marakas by owning the 7thhouse (a Kendra) and their intensity to bestow Maraka results is in the descendingorder i.e., Jupiter

The dark planets, Rahu and Ketu strongly give the results of the houses they occupy or the houses owned by the planets conjunct with them. Notes-The shadowy planets(i.e.,the nodes),Rahu and Ketu do not own any sign independently, they are indeed very strong and should not be ignored thoughVaraha Mihira and afew other Acharyas have not given their results in detail. Natally their results can be understood from texts like ParasaraHorE Jataka Pariiata, Phala Deepika etc.For results of their Dasasaccording to this text this separateSloka is inducted. ThehousesoccupiedbyRahu and Ketu shouldbeascertained first as auspicious or inauspicious. Rahu and Ketu will act according to this quality of the house,if they solitarily occupy it. Inan auspicioushousethey will produce auspiciousresultswhile in an inauspicious, the contrary.They will be neutral in the 2nd, 4h,7thand 10s houses.In the lst sthand 96 they will be 12rh, auspicious. In the 8ft they will be extremely evil. In the 3'd, 6ft and 11ft they will be inauspicious. These will be the results if they alone are present in thesehouses. Rahu and Ketu also give the results of the planet they are conjoined to. Firstly ascertain the auspiciousness and inauspiciousnessof the planet due to his ownership' They will bestow results according to this characteristicof the planet. The reasonbehind is :

They are termed yqd or strong becausethey are capable of eclipsing even the visible gods like the Sun and the Moon.

with the plane of the ecliptic (the path of the Sun). Thus they are the megnetic points capableof attracting the results of the house occupied by them and the planet conjunct to them. One more fact that is worth noting and hasbeen experienced in practiceis that Rahu-Ketualso give to someextent results of the planets aspectingthem. The a.rthor of the text seemsto have included it in the conjunction. Example - In the chart below the Lagna is Taurus, Rahu is in the 9n housein Saturn'ssign.It is conjunctto the Sun and Mercury 72

qq**) qfr qrt(-+ seisfr faermq*':t ir{T( qrqisfr qq*} qfr qttrqdeq:tt
Even bad persons in the company of noble persons mend their ways to help the latter. Similarly a malefic planet gives the results of the Yoga, if in any relationship with the Yogakaraka planets. In Sloka 18 was said that greatly auspiciousresults occur in the Dasaand Bhukti of Yogakarakaplanetsand even the Bhukti of unrelated auspiciousplanet is productive of auspiciousresults. Here auspicious planets are productive of good results erien Now the question without relationship with the Yogakarakas. can arises, inauspiciousplanetsbe productiveof auspiciousness, planets?The answer is that an if they are relatedto Yogakaraka resultsaccording inauspiciousplanet is productiveof auspicious if he is related to Yogakarakaplanets. to his strength in his Bhukti, In other words a Trishadayalord who is neither a Kendra nor a Tiikona lord and is related to Yogakaraka planets; in his Dasa and Bhukti of the related Yogakarakaplanetswill produce mixed Almost results accordingto the power of his inauspiciousness' all the commentatorshave interpreted that inauspiciousplanet will give auspiciousresults.If this would havebeenthe intention of the author of the text then he would have not contradictedit in Slokas37 and 38 : crcr qR (flFilefi: u{rri nq:{Igq|-{l 137,' $ffi4: qvsTrqr€l-tr5;5..{$!mqt 1 q-qFa fqqm,r<t 5"rd mqql I srcq(TrTrqrFtK[arEifr ir(q'ltnql 138 I If the Dasalord is inauspiciousthen inauspiciousresultsoccur in the Bhukti of unrelated auspiciousplanet and mixed results ociur in the Bhukti of related auspicious planet but very inauspiciousresults occurin the Bhukti of uruelated inauspicious planet.


Laghu Parasari-JatakaChandrika

Now, it is evident from theseSlokas that if the Dasa lord is inauspicious,the auspiciousplanet related to him gives mixed results in his Bhukti. Here if inauspicious planet is totally inauspicious asJupiter for Libra Lagna and Mercury for Scorpio Lagna then the results will depend upon his strength and the strength of related auspicious planet. The word tfif( has been used only for the Bhukti of inauspicious planet not for the Dasa of Yogakarakaplanet otherwise it will contradict Slokas 37-38. Example - In a Taurus Lagna chart, if the Sun and Saturn are related to produce greatly auspiciousresults and if the Moon is related to the Sun not to Satum then in the Sun'sDasa,the Moon's Bhukti and in the Moon's Dasa,Sun'sBhukti will be productive of mixed results.If the Moon is relatedto both the Sun and Saturn. Then Moon's Dasa and Saturn's Bhukti will be more auspicious than Sun's Bhukti. To generalise,we can say that Trishadaya lords if related to Yogakarakas are productive of mixed results in the Dasa of Yogakarakasand their own Bhuktis and vice versa. Tiishadaya lords if unrelated to Yogakaraka planets are productive of extremelyinauspiciousresultsin the Dasa of Yogakarakasand their own Bhuktis and vice-versa. and Example-In the charthereSaturnis Yogakaraka Jupiter (Papa)Trishadaya lord.

Ordinarily, Rajayogasconfer much wealth, status and happinessto the native though they may not make him a king. The planet's strength is the key to the quality of Rajayoga.A planet in debilitatioru combustionetc.is dispossessed strength, of therefore incapable of confering auspiciousness. Upto now we talked of the Kendra and Trikona lords but the question ariseswhat will be the results,if a Kendra or Trikona lord at the same time happensto be a Trishadayaor 8thhouse lord as for a Gemini Lagna chart Mercury conjunct Venus be related to Saturn who is also the 8tr'house lord; for a Cancer Lagna chart Jupiter being the 9thlord is also the 6thlord; for a Capricorn Lagna chart the 9thlord Mercury also happens to be the 6tr'house lord and for an Aquarius Lagna chart Mercury being the 5thhouse lord also owns the 8thhouse. A Yogakarakais a joint lord of a Kendra as well as Trikona, if he happens to be related to a blemished Tiikona lord, then the blemish does not influence the combination any way becauseauspiciousness of Yogakarakaplanet is so great that it eradicates blemish. the the If a Rajayogakaraka planet (the samelord of a Kendra and a Trikona) is related to anotherKendra lord is not as powerful as when related to a Trikona lord. In a Taurus Lagna chart if Saturn (the 9thand 10'hlord) is related to Mercury (the 5s and 2nd lord), it is the best Yoga for TaurusLagna. In a CancerLagna chart,if Mars (the 5h and L0th lord) is related to the Moon or Jupiter the 6thand 9ft lord will be the best Yoga for CancerLagna but Mars+Moon Yoga will have an edge over the others because Moon is unblernishedat all.

Some scholarstake Saturn and Mooninstead of the Moonand Lagna.The tabie givenabove is a specimen. The span of longevity arrived at by the two or three pairs should be adopted. If all the three pairs show differently then the life span should be fixed finally by the Lagna and Hora Lagna. If the Lagna lord is friendly to the Sun then long life may be anticipated, if neutral then medium and if enemy then short life.

Mercury's Bhukti was fairly auspicious as Bhukti lord is in the th house but not related to Dasa lord therefore the results were of Mercury's lordship.

The results were predominantly of Venus (a Yogakaraka). In the Sun Bhukti the results were not good as the Sun is a Trishadaya lord and the native was penalisedby govt. agencies for some misappropriations. He had to invest for the needs of the new project undertaken in Venus Bhukti. During the last seven years of the Moon's Dasa, transit of Saturn over the key planets hampered the results considerably as the Moon, the Dasa lord is a neutral planet.

i.e., they will function for the lord they are conjunct with. In other words, Rahu-Ketuconjunctwith a Kendra or Trikona lord will function as if Kendra lord is in a Kendra or Trikona lord is in a Trikona. To produce Yoga results, the relation between Kendra and Trikona lords is required which is absent here.

Lesserinauspicious planets are of two types (i) the stronger are the Kendra lords having their other sign identical with inauspicious houses and (ii) Trikona lords having their other sign identical with inauspicious houses.

Sri Vinayaka Sastri 'Betala'holds that the relationship between the Kendra and Trikona lords has been talked of many times earlier in the text then what was the need to say the same thing again in the concluding Sloka of the text.

For Cancer Lagna, Mars owns the 5th and the 10th houses and becomesYogakarakaaccording to Slokas6 and 7.

Mercury is inauspiciousfor owning the 3rd house.Again by owning the 12th house, he gives results for the 3rd house. Therefore he is finally inauspicious. Saturn is evil by owning the 8th house and a Maraka by owning the 7th house. Thus Saturn is Maraka and evil. The Sun by owning the 2nd house (aMaraka-sthana) becornes simply neutral. The blemish of Maraka does not occur to the Sun. Moreover he is friendly to the Lagna lord Moon. Fruitful Yogas :1. Moon + Mars, a greatly auspiciouscombination. 2.

Mars owns the 2nd and 9th (Trikona) house. As 2nd house lord Mars gives results accordingto{eTHfd{EUu-+{ according i.e., to his other house lordship. In our reading, it is said that Mars does not kill. It is a general statement.Under certain configurationshe may be inducedto kill in his Dasa-Bhukti.For example, if Mars occupiesthe 2nd or 7th house in association with Mercury and Saturn. The 9th lord Mars, if gets configurated in house exchange with the L0th lord Jupiter, it forms a very powerful Rajayoga. Similarly, if the Moon occupiesthe 10th house and Jupiter in exaltationis situated in the 5th housethen also it is a powerful Rajayoga. Saturnand Mercury aredeclaredto be evil and inauspicious and henceare to be selectedas Marakas.Saturn owns the L1th and 12th house, thereforehe is inaus;ricious. According to the q qrqlil qyry fretc 6--cfd( f{6f,r grqt=dfr: etc., rule der-ctt-fl Saturn's death inflicting power is clear. As for Mercury, he rules the 4th and 7th, both Kendra houses. Becauseof the ownership of Kendra houses he acquires KendradhipatyaDosha and being also the 7th lord, he becomes a powerful Maraka. The Moon only becomesthe 5th (Tiikona) lord therefore he is undoubtedlyauspicious. The Sun is inauspicious for he owns the 6th house, a Trishadayahouse. Venus owns the 3rd house, wirich is a Trishadayahouse. Venus also owns the 8th house and thus becomesdeadlv evil and inauspiciousfinally. Fruitful Yogas:1. Jupiter+ Moon. 2. Mars + Jupiter. 3. Moon + Mercury, only Mercury spoilt. Spoilt Yogas:1. Mars + Mercury, both the planetsspoilt. 2. Mercury + |upiter, both blemished Kendradhipatya by Dosha.

Some are born under beneficcombination of planets.And they remain fools without experiencing any results of those combinations like the ponies of Kashmir carrying bundles of saffron. The reason is, what can the benefic combinations produce, if their periods do not operate? Notes-The ponies of Kashmir carry heavy loads of saffron on their back.They experience only the weight of the bundles, of little use is the fragranceof saffronto them. Similarly, if the Dasasof the planets causing the yogas do not operatein one's life time, thoseYogasprove futile.

DASA CALCULATIONS I The Vimsottari Dasa system is based on the Naksatras (asterisms) that are tr,r'enty sevenin number and2lc Naksatras cover the elongation of each Rasi (sign). Elongation of each Naksatrais 13o-20'having four charanas(legs)or sectorsof 3o20' each.Twenty sevenNaksatrasmultipled by the elongation -20' give 360' of the NaksatraMandal (Zodiac)or RasiChakra. 13o TheseNaksatrasarecountedfromAswini which falls in the sign Aries (Mesha)from 0oto 13o-20'.The next one Bharani occupies 13'-20' to 26o-40'in Aries. The last 3'-20' in Aries form the 1st Naksatra leg of Krittika Naksatra.Thus, we see1 + 1 + y4= 21/4 in a sign. fall As told in the text, total cycle of yearsin Vimsottari or Udu Dasais of 120years.This comprisesof Sun's 6 years,Moon's 1-0 16 Rahu's1,8 years,Jupiter's years,Saturn's years,Mars's 7 years, Ketu's 7 yearsandVenus's20 years Mercury's \7 years, L9years, respectively in this order. If to a native current Dasa is of the Sun, the next Dasawill be that of the Moon and then of Mars etc. in the aboveorder. How this order was arrived at is yet a mystery but we have brought somefact beforeour readersin this respect in the introcluctory chapter.This can be acceptedas an axiont, which has stood to the test of time. Now how can we decidethe planet whose Dasa is on at the time of birth of a native? Each Naksatra has its ruling planet, who rules for a certain period of time as told earlier.In counting of Dasas(Main periods) of planets,the starting Dasa is always of the ruler of Naksatrain which the Moon is at the time of birth Dasasare calculatedin the order told above. and the succeeding will enableone to calculatethe Simple mathematicalexercises

The cycle for lordship that starts from Ketu and ends at Mercury, reoccurs three times in a set of 9 Naksatras finally First cyclestartsat 0oinAries and ends totalling to 27 Naksatras. at the 30th degreeof the sign Cancer.The 2nd cycle starts at 0oof Leo and enclsat the 30th dgree of the sign Scorpio.And the 3rd arrd last cycle startsof 0oof Sagittariusand endsat the 30th degree of the sign Pisces. In the table aboveAswini, Magha and Moola are lorded by Ketu, falling in Aries 0o to 13o-20,in Leo 0o to L3o-20' and in Sagittarius0o to L3o-20'. Supposeat the birth of a native, the Moon is at3"-27'in the sign Aries in Aswini Naksatra.In other words we can say that the Moon has traversed 3"-27' in the sign Aries in Aswini Naksatra and is yet to traverse (13'-20'-3'-27') i.e., 9o-53' in Aswini Naksatra. By simple mathematicsof proportions, we can calculatehow much balanceyearsetc.of Ketu's Dasa are left to be experiencedby the native at birth.
13"-20'of the Moon's movement in Aswini = 7 year's of Ketu's Dasa

Converting this into years,months and days,we get,5 years, 3 months and 9 days. This means Ketu will rule the native or Ketu's Dasa will be on to the native till he is 5 years,3 months and 9 days old. After Ketu, Venuswill rule the native for20 years.

From the table of Dasa and Antardasa it is clear that Rahu will rule the native or Rahu'sDasawill be on to the native from the age48 years,3months and 9 days till 66years,3months and 9 days. During this period the native will be positioned in life accordingto the results of Rahu'sDasa.Certainly there will be changesin economic,socialand religious life pattern and physical well being of the native accompanied by changesin mental with are patterns also.Thesechanges brought aboutin consonance the Dasaand variousBhukti lords. the behaviourpatternsamong Out of the nine Bhuktis, the very first Bhukti is of the lord of Dasa.In Rahu Dasa,the first Bhukti will be of Rahu,next will be of Jupiter and so on in the sequentialorder upto Mars Bhukti. The Bhukti is further subdivided into Pratyantaraswhich are alsonine. In a particular Bhukti the first Pratyantarais again of Bhukti lord i.e.,in Rahu'sBhukti, the first Pratyantarawill be of Rahu,the 2nd of Jupiteathe 3rd of Saturnetc.in the sequential order as tolcl above. Thus, we seethat Dasasystemis a big wheel of Dasa lmajor period), and there are 9 small wheels of Bhuktis-(minor^orsub feriods) in it and eachwheel of Bhukti containsfurther 9 small wheels of Pratyantaras(sub-subperiods). In this way w€ can move on to still smaller fractionslike Sookshmaand PranaDasas' Formula for Bhukti isYearsof Dasalord x Dasavears of Bhukti lord.

Rahu'sBhukti in Rahu'sDasa. Supposewe want to calculate

=ff Bhuk,t Rahu


and months 12days ##= Zyears,S

For Jupiter Bhukti in Rahu'sDasa:

'f-20 6 = 1 8 x 1 " = 2 8 8 Zyears,4 months 24days. and Bhukti Jupiter ffi=
For convenience we can also take the numerator in the fractioni.e.,288as28.8months'The whole number 28 represents months as 2 years and 4 months and the sub decimal part-O.8 = 24 days.ThusRahu'sDasa, Bhukti is of 2 years/ 0.8x30 Jupiter's 4 months and24 days.

Similarly, we can make instantly t:bles for Bhuktis in the Dasa'sof other planetsalso. Let us now calculate Dasa balance for a native with the Moon's longitute 6' . 5o.24'. From the table this longitude falls under Chitra Naksatra 5' . 23o.20' to 6"- 6"- 40'which is ruled by Mars, signifying that the Dasais of Mars. For calculating Dasa balance of Mars, deduct the longitude of the Moon from the longitude where Chitra ends. 6..6o. 40-- 6". So.24.=76'. Span of a Nakshatrais 13o-20'= 800'.

800 Years





t, - 7-x 76 -


532 years = 0 years7 months and 29days. 800

The last Bhukti in Mars Dasa is of the Moon of 7 months I iduration.It meansthat29 daysof the Sun'sBhukti was alsothere to be experienced. Therefore the native was born under Mars Dasa and Sun Bhukti. The same rule of proportion can be used to calculate the i lPratyantaraor sub-sub period. Like Bhukti or Antardasa the first Pratyantarais of the Bhukti lord. For example,we want to calculatePratyantaraof Mars in 7 i imonths Bhukti of the Moon in Mars Dasa.The Pratvantaraof Mars ismonths = 12 daysand 6 hrs. 6-of ffi This is because Mars gets,7 yearsin 120years. In the sameway in Mars Dasa,the Moon Bhukti and Rahu

7 months =

. Other Method, An other method to calculatePratyantarais to convert the Bhukti into days and multiply thesedays by the years allotted to Pratyantaralord in Dasas.Take half of the result. It will be ghatis of Pratyantara. For example,we want to calculatePratyantaraof Rahu in Mars Dasaand Mars Bhukti. Mars Bhukti = 7 x 7 = 4.9 months ='L47 days.
