Our version has 97 cbapterscontaining English translationand exhaustive alnotations and exanrples. To handlethe publicationeasily, havedividedthe work we in two volumes.The present volume-first volume-contains 45 cbapterswhile the remaining52 chaptershave beenput in the second volume. Chapter I and chapter 2 give some preliminary extra. astrological information. From chapter 3, tho astiological information begins. , In tbis chapter, phnetary descriptions, benefics aod malefics, planetary deities, complexions, s"*, primordial compounds, seasons, relationships, dignitiesetc. uri given.

These totally ten are and have thcir own say on a nativity, as the other nine Lain Grabas have. so to say, these upagrahasand Muhurta vela5 can alter in suitebh proportions the effectsduc to Nava crauai

In tho matter of calculation of Gullka, a different concept comes to light from this oldestwork. The latcr authorshavegivenan altogether variable in knowing Gulika's position whereas Perasara advised that it should be cast for the beginnin! of Saturn's Muhurta. Whoreas somesuggestthat it should be for the endingMuhurta of Saturn. In chapter4, each Rasi is described from variousangles. Slokas 25-30 are the climax of this chapter. An unerring method to find out the Nisheka Lagna (or the moment of intercourse from the time ofl birth is outlined. causing conception) Though the prooess of calculation is as simple as a school student's mathematical quiz, it hasgreat truth in it which even modern science could not discover. To provo the truth of the statementin the sago'sinstruction, a practicai examplehas been given by me. An assumed exanrple cannot better solve the probfem. A practical case where the time of coitus is astrologicall;r chosenis taken in hand; time of birth has also beengot accuratelynotod. From the tinro of birth, the time of Nisheka (or of coitus)is traced which is not in variation, evento the slightest extont,with the originallynoted Nishekatime. Again from the time of Nisheka,the birth time is tracedin a forward manner using only traditional rules of astrology. This exercise provesthreeimportant points, viz. l.

The original concept is howeverfrom the pen of Parasara. Childhoodevilsare discussed chapter9 whiie chapter10 in prescribes planetarycombinationsto combat zuch possibleevils. Basic information about the 12 houses could be f<rund in chapter I I while specific attentionmay be given to slokas 14-16.

The curious reader may note one thing. There are maoy rules to note the birth month, natal Moon, natal ascendantetc. with the hclp of Adhana (or prasna). And the correct ones bringing the variouspossibilitiesto a coincidentalmanner should be corectly judged without ruehing to conclusions sinply theoretically. Ihus the reader will be convincedof the fact that Adhana time noted is correct as we got back to the birth details from Adhana and vlceyersc ac-curatelywithout any ambiguity what80ever. From the saidtwo processes basedon accurately maintained recordsfor purposes of scientific research, rather we, firmly I, can concludethe followiog without a shadowof doubt : l. Gulika's longitudewill corrcspond to the beginningof Saturn'sMuhurta only, as suggested the sage, irrespectiw of by any other authority stating that it should be for the end of Muhurta ruled by Saturn. In fact, I have not come acrossany cage'swork stating contrarily to what Parasara stated in this regard. Suppose we have calculated Gulika for the given birth chatt for the end of Saturn's muhurta, the longitude of Gulika would bave advancedby 24 degrees. That would put note that the Adhana still 24 days behind the noted date. Please we have exactly reached the Adh4na date a$ per the record maintained without any variation. This proves that Gulika shouldbe at the beginningof Saturn'sMuhurta. 2. AccurateAyanamsa only that of Lahiri and that accuris ate it is as to the seoond of arc. This contention is proved by the fact that we have made use of the Moon's longitude. Other 4 loogitudesusedby us in the processof getting back to Adbana are simply angular distanceswhich will not be affected by any Ayansmsa. But the Moon's longitude will vary plus or minus and Adhana time will be minus or accordingto the Ayanarhsa, plus accordingto the variation. Whereaswith lahiri's position of the Moon, we did not experienccany anamolyin the Adhana computation. Similarly in progressing towards the birth date from the Adbana date, Moon's longitude playeda significant role. If for examplewith anotherAyanamsa, Moon goesto the Pisces the Adhana,her natal position, will yet be in Leo but in inconsistentwith Adhana position. Hence Lahiri Ayanamsa has all the perfection required for calculationof eventhe Nadiamsas.

So say like Narada. . sages Notes : Let us find out the Ghatika lagna in the above examplecase, Birth time is 12 ghatiswhich gives 12 Rasis. Vighatisleft are 30 which are to be divided by 2 and treated as degrees. 30 divided by 2 yields 15, i.e. 15". Thus, we note 12 signs

Notes : This is a very important clue given by the sage' viz' get the 'longitudes of the three special ascendants, We Bhava Lagna, Hora Iagna and Ghatika Lagna' Apart from the natal ascendant,the planets will remain in different bhavas according to ttre special ascendantbeing considered' Thus we get foui different Bhava charts.

10-131.VARNADA DASA : I now derailVarnada Dasa justby knowing which, one can dealwith the longevityof a native. If the natal ascendant an odd sign count dirctly from is Aries to natal ascendant. If the natal ascendant an even sign, is count from Pisces to the natal ascendant, in the"ieverseorder. Similarly, if the Hora Lagna is an odd one, count from Aries to Hora Iagna in direct order. If the Hota Iagna is an even one, to order. If both count from Pisces Hora Lagna in the reverse the products are odd signsor even signs, then add both thqfigures. Ifoneis odd and the otheris even, then knowthd differencebetweenthe two products. If the latest product, in this process,is an odd one, count so many signsfrom Aries in a direct manner;if an evenone, count so many signsfrom Pisces in reverseorder. The sign so known will be the Varnada for the ascendant. t-a-tes ;Take the caseof a'native who hasLibra (an odd sign)as natal ascendantand Scorpio (an even sign) as Hora*:, Lagna. When we count from Aries to Libra (odd sign-hence to direct), we get ?. Again from Pisces Scorpio (Hora lagna, an evensign-hence reverse)we have 5 signs.We haveto add these i.e. as'theyare of the same class, odd. We get 12. l two figures, productis an evenone. Hencewe have to count 12 signs This for from Piscesin a reversemannerto get Varanada the I:gna. we get Aries. This is the Varnada Rasi for natal ascendant. Thus There is a suggestionfrom one quarter that longitudes and of natal ascendant Hora Lagna be also taken into consid, the eration.In that case, counting when done from Aries, is to be done from zero degree. And from Pisces, is from the last it degreeof Pisces, is i.e. the 30th degree of Pisces the starting J point.

42-53. yARGA CLASSIFICATION .. Maitreya, explained now are thc sum effccts of classificationsof different divisions (or Varps so far narrated). Thesc are four kinds,viz. Shad Varga(6 divisionsconsidered), SapthaYarga(7 divisions considyarga ered),Dasa Varga(10 divisionsconsidered) and Shodasa (all the l6 divisionsconsidercd). the Shadvarga In classification, the Varga designations arc Kimsuka, Vyanjana, Chaamara, Chatra and Kundala according to a planet being in 2 to 6 combinations good Vargas. Next is the Saptavarga which of in these classifications continue in the same rnanner upto six combinations good Vargas,the 7th additional Vargagetting of classified Mukutir- In the DasaVarga scheme, designations as the commence from Parijata etc. suchas 2 gooti Vargas-parijatha. 3. Uttama,4. Gopura, 5. Simhasana, paaravata, Devaloka, 6. 7. 8. Brahmaloka, 9. Sakravahana and 10. Vargas-Srirlhama. In the Shodasa Varga schemethe combinationsof Vargas go with designations thus : two good Vargas-Bhedaka, 3. Kusuma,4. Nagapushpa, Kanduka, 6. Kerala,7. Kalpa5. vriksha,E.Chandana Yana,9. Poornachandra, Uchchaisrava, 10. ll. Dhanvantari, 12. Suryakanta, 13. Vidrtrma, 14. Sakrasimhasana, Goloka and 16. Vargas-Sri Vallabha. In these 15. divisions, the divisions falling in the planet's exaltation eign, Moolatrikonasign,own sign, and the signs ownbd by the loid of an anglefrom the Arudha ascendantare all to be consictered (as good Vargas). The divisions of a combustplanet, defeated pllryt, weak planet and a planet in bad Avasthaslike Sayana be all ignored to be auspicious, thesedestroy the good yogur. for Notes : Four kinds of summaryof the Vargasor diyisions are suggested thus :

The divisionsof the ownersof the four anglescounted from the Arudha Padaor PadaLagna. The first threeare clear. The fourth one needs clarificaa tion. f n stoka 52 above,the word ,,{l{alq" (Sx'anullnrh) has beenuscclwhich meansfrom the Arudha hada,.irpada Lagna. Hencethe lust quarterof sloka52 hints at the "tJrvisions the of lord.s ot'angles from the Arudha Pada"..(Similarly,.Swamsa" or Frivr means the Navamsa occupied by Atma Karaka i.e. Karavide ch. 33, infra.) kamsaascendant, The sage suggests that the signs ownedby the lords of Arudha f-agnaand of its angles are consideredgood for Varga Division. This will bring many signs--sometimes many as gas in the purview of this rule. [t hasbeenfelt necessary bring to this liberalapproach contained in the sloka to the attentionof the reader. In my opinion, the truer strength a planetlies of in its Moolalrikona, exaltation and own signpositions. For the sakeof brevity, the good Vargasin number in the context of Shadvarga through Shodasa Vafga are given special as designations detailedbelow : If Shadvarga scheme considered is two or more suchgood Vargasare known thus : 2. Kimsuka 3. Vyanjana4. Chamara 5. Chatra 6. Kundala. If SaptaVarga scheme used the same namesupto six is good Vargasapply while seven good Vargasgo under the name Mukuta.

It may be notedthat mostof eventhe hoaryauthors hlve not gonebeyondDasaVargascheme.

Jupiteris in exaltation of Vargaif in Moon's Hora. Thcn, for Jupiterin Sun'sHora, and for other four in any Hora, how rJowc classify Varga?ln my opinion, the we haveto follow the hint givenin sloka l3 of the nextchaptcr that Jupiter, Sun and Mars give effects in Sun'sHora (as lar if as Hora is concerned) and the rest of the planetsexceptMercury in Moon's llora. Mercury is good in both. the Horas. So to say,these good Horas for the concerned are ptanets.

3-6. SHORT-LIFE COMBINATIONS (upto sloka 23) : Should tho Moon be in the 6th,-8th, or the l2th from the ascendant and be in aspectto a malefic, the child will die soon. If in the ptocess there be g benefic's aspect,it may live upto 8. If a beneflcis retrograde in the 6th, 8th or the l2th being in aspect to a malefic, death will occur within a month of birth. This is true only when the ascendant unoccupiedby a benefic. is Should the 5th bc occupiedby Saturn,Mars and tbe Sunjointly, (early) death of mother and brother will come to pass. Mars placed in the ascendant in the 8th and be conjunct Saturn or or Sun or be in aspectto a malefic,being bereft of benefic aspect will prove a sourceof (immediate)death. Notes : Here a pertinent query may emergeas to why the sagementionscombinationsfor preMture death while longevity cannot be decidedly declared upto the 24thyear ofage as per his own statement. These yogas will guide us to dctect thc immediatedefectsfor longevity and resort to remedial measureg like firc sacrifice,prayers,donations, medicineetc. and save thc from Akala Mrity.u or prematuredeatb,vide ch. 5 of Horasarr. The Moon in an evil houseat'birth and in aspect to a malefic will cause.early death. Even a benqfic'saspect on the Moon, in the said Yoga, will causethe end at the age of E, the suggests sage. If she is increasing, this neednot be feared.

Notes : Our text requiresthe 2nd lord to be in exaltation or in own sign so that the nativewill look after his people& C. It has been practically seen that the 2nd lord's dignity is essential one to be helpful to others and be dutiful towards for his family members. Chaukhambaedition has almosta different condition in this place : It states that the 2nd lord shouldbe in deep exaltation or in own sign and be in aspectto Jupiter. The net resultgiven therein is "fame and liked bypall". The condition of 'deep' exaltation seems me to be somewhat excess to in of the requirement while a simple own sign positionis givenas an alternative. As such,I feel mereexaltation the 2nd lord is of cnoughfor obtainingthe saidresults.

While Venus in the 2nd or Full Moon in the 2nd will not depriveone of beautiful eyes,defectsbf sight at an early stagewill result from the said position. Mercury in the 2nd will havea say on the speech ratherthan on the sight.

Notes : Saturnand Mercuryare termedas neutralplanets. Rahu and Ketu are shadowyones. In the matter of deciding the sexofcoborn or progeny, Saturnand Rahu be treated as maleswhile Mercury and Ketu are females. (Trailokyapraknsikavide sloka l2 treatsKetu as a female and Rahuas aeunuch. Daivagnabharana ch, I, s. 14-15 vide considers reverse this at one place and imediately quotes the of a differentsihool of thought. thus : Rahu is a malepi"nrt uod Ketu a eunuch.) All odd signsare malesigns and all evensignsare female signs.Male signsexclusively occupied male planetswill cause by birth of brothers. Converse the casewith femalesignsoccuis pied by female planets. This should be known from the 3;d house being male or female sign & C. If the 3rd houseis occupied a male planetas well as a female planet,there will by be brothers and sisters as well. The contributionwill come to passif the contributor is strong.For example,Jupiterin the 3rd in a male sign if strongwill cause birth of a brother. If he is the weak,acquisitionof brother through Jupitrr will not be fruitful. Then one hasto look upto alternative sources whetherthe native will havea brother or not. q*

For example, if Venus and 7th lord are together in the gth, the native'smarriedlife will be short (and in bad taste.) Similarly, their conjunction in an angle or in a trine will confer longlastingbeneficeffects.

Firstly a certain significator or a certain bhavalord should join the 6th lord or be in the 6th/8th house so that the relative signifiedby the said Karaka incurs ulcers, bruises etc. For the Lagnahoroscope, 6th lord is Venus. erample,in a Sagittarius The 6th is Taurus and the 8th is Cancer. Suppose the 4th lord Jupiter or the Matrukaraka Moon (signifying mother) joins Venus or is in Taurus. (Cancer though the 8th house, the harmful in this regard and Moon thereinshould not be deemed affict the motheras he is exalted Jupiterin Cancerwill not also thereand protLctsthe 4th by aspect.) As a result, the mother will incur ulcer, bruisesetc. The relatives signifiedby planetsand Bhavasare denoted in ch, 32, infra. The second clue is to know the possibleaffiiction,to the native,of a particularareain the body. If the Sun is the lord of' the 6th houseor is with the 6th lord or is in the 6th/8th,the native will be apt to incur affiiction of head, dnd so on and forth.

If the sum is 4 Rasis& c or g Rasis & c, the it degrees etc. (ignoring Rasis) be subtracted from 60. This will be the aspectual value. The sum being in conformitywith others than thesebe treatedas statedearlier. Notes : Throughout this chapter and others related to calculationof strengthsof planetsand houses,the term ..Virupa'

has been used which denotes 'Shashtiamsas'or 'Kalas'. 60 such units makeonq Rupa. The planet that aspects is Drishti Graba or the aspector. The planet that is aspected is known as Drisya Graha or the aspected. The longitude of 'the aspected' to be .is deducted from that of the aspector. If the longitudeof the is aspected lesserthan that of the aspector, increase the longi'the aspected'by 360 to facilitate deduction, tude of which will yield the aspectualor Drishti angle. After finding out the'Drishtiangles, the variousquantities as will have to be processed under with the relevant principles : Rule l. When aspectual angle is between 30 and 60 degrees,reduce30 degrees from the resultant aspectualangle value. and tlivide by 2 to get aspectual angle is above60 but below 90 Rule 2. If the aspectudl reduce60 from the aspectual angleand add 15 to get degrees, aspectualvalue. Rule 3. In case the aspectual angle is above90 but less be than 120 degreesthe aspectualangle redirced from I20, then by halvedand then increaced 30, to get aspectualvalue. Rule 4. If the aspectual angle is between 120and 150 reducetle angle of aspect ttom 150to get aspectual degrees, value, Rule 5. If the aspectualangle is between 150 and 180 degreesreduce I50 from aspectualangle and double the value. resultantsum to get aspectual Rule 6. When the aspectual angleis above 180but below deductthe aspectualangle from 300and halvethe 300 degrees sum, to get aspectual value. resultant Needless mentionthereis no aspectual to valueif the angle is between300 and 30 degrees. . For housein aspect,considerthe cusp of the hpuse, akin to a planetary degree. In the caseof aspects from Saturn, Mars and Jupiter,the following additionsmay be notedas a simple formula. A) Mars : When the aspect angleis 9G120degrees 210or . 249degrees, 15 Virupasto the valueobtainedfrom add the speculum.

C) Saturn : When the aspect angle is 6G90 degrees or 270-300 and 45 Virupas to the value obtained degrebs from the speculum.

Deduct the Natha from 60 to know the Unnatha bala of the Sun, Jupiter and Venus. Mercury, irrespective of day and night, gets full Nathonnatha Bala (i.e. of I Rupa or 60 Virupas). Notes : Kaala Bata (or temporal strength) comprises of the following sub divisions: l) NathonnathaBala (diurnal and nocturnal strengths). 2) PakshaBala (Paksha:fortnight). 3) Tribhaga Bala (strengthdue to day/nigbt bclqg'msdein 3 parts). 4') Varsha-Masa-Dina-Hora Bala (Varsha:astrological year, Masa:month, Dina:week day and Hora:. planetaryhour). 5) Ayana Bala (equinoctialstrenglh). 6) Yudhdha Bala (strengthdue to partaking in planetary war).

12. TRIBHAGA BALA .' One Rupa is obtained by Mercury (if birth is) in the first one third part of day time,. by thc Sun in the secondone third part of the day and by Saturn in the last third part of the day. Similarly, the Moon, Venus and Mars get full strength (of one Rupa) in the first, secondand last one third parts of the night. Jupiter gets this strengthat all times.

Notes : This strength goes to one planet only, as I rupa. Jupiter, bowevef,gcts I Rupa irrespective birth time. of Thc day duration or night duration according to birth beingin day or night must be dividedby 3. With the follgwing table, Tribhaga bala can be kaown, according to thc birth being : in lst patt of day:1 Rupa to Mercury in 2nd part of day:1 Rupa to the Sun in 3rd part of day:1 Rupa to Saturn . in lst part of night:l Rupa to the Moon in 2nd part of nighl:1 Rupa to Venus in 3rd part of night:l Rupa to Mars at any time:l Rupa to Jupiter . Thus two planetswill get I Rupa of Tribhaga bala. ThBt planet in is I Rupa to Jppiter and I Rupa to the respective whosepart the birth occurs. The other 5 planetsdo uot get aDy Tribhaga bala.

I3. VARSHA-MAASA-DINA.HORABALA .. I5,.30, 45 and 60 Virupas are in order given to Varsha lord, Maasalord Dina lord and Hora lord. Naisargikabala (or natural,strength) hasalreadybeenexplained. Notes : Under this hqadiiry, four different planets get are certainVirupas. Thesestrengths : 15 ViruPas Varsha(Abda) lord : Masa (nronth) lord = 30Virupas' : 45 Virupas Dina (day) lord : 60 Virupas Hora (hour) lord as is How to decidethe saidlordships explained under. Varsha lord : Astrological year is different from othet mcasures. The day on which the astrologicalyear begins can be found out from the Speculum of abbreviatedAharganas, the vide p.272.To know the Varsbalord we shouldfirst ascertain number of dayspast from thc beginning of Creation. This is a very tedious process and hence we are concernedwith the abbreviated Ahargana (or the number of days past from

Chapter 27



Creation). According to late Rev. Ebenezer Burgess, who translated in Surya Siddhanta Englisb, as on January l, 1g60, the number of dlys past from the beginning of Creation are 573. 714,404,108, To know tho day on which the astrologicalyear in which birth took placebeganadopt ihe following formula. Divide the number of days past from the day of Crcation till the day of birth by .60. Rejoot remainder and mulriply the qgotient by 3. Increascthe post-multiplied product by I and divide by 7. The remainderwill indicatc the week day on which the astrological year giving birth to the native opened. Remainder I indicatesSunday,2 Monday and so on and so forth. Assumethat birth took place on June l, 1984. Locate for January O from the Speculum of Abbreviated Aharganas date 1984as 65142. Add 153 being the numberof d4ysupto the day of birth (inclusivc thc birth date). Thus we get abbreviated days past from crcation to birth as 65295. This product ihen divided by 3CI yields a quotient of l8l. Ramaindcr is to te rejected. l8I multiplied by 3 indicates543. Increasedby l, this gives544. When 544 is divided by 7, thc remainderis 5. That is, the astrological year of birth for one born on June l, 1984 began on a Thursday. Hence this strengthor Varsha bala goesto Jupiter, the ruler of Thursday Mgsa Iord ; Divide the same Ahargana by 30 and the quotient (devoid of remainder) iodi*t"r' months passedfrom Creationto birth. The completed months be multiplied by 2 gnd increased l. The Iatestsum should be divided by Z and by the remainder indicates on which the birth month began. Continuing with the same case, we divide 65295 by 30. by Quotientis 2176. This sum multiplied by 2 and increased 4353. Dividing 4353 by 7, we get a remainderof 6 I .denots denotingFriday. That is, the month of birth beganon Friday and lhe Masa bala goesto Venus,the lord of Friday. Dim lord : Though the week day of birth can be known from ephemeris or perpetual calendars,we better adopt the method prescribed which will confirm if the Ahargana followed iscorrect or is otherwise. The number of tr,.ys as arrived above indicating Ahargana be divided by 7 and the remainder will indicate the week day of birtb. In the example case65295


Brihat ParasaraHora S.astra

a dividedby ? leaves remainder of 6. That is June 1,1984is Friday. Hencethe Aharganafollowed by us is correct. While consideringDina bala, the birth should be treated from sunris to sunrise. Hence in this case,the Dina bala goes to Venus,ruler of ttto"t;oruBara planetaryhour. Eachday from : Hora means runriseto sunriseis divided into 24 equalparts of one hour or from the 2.5 ghatikas. TheseHoras are ruled by the 7 planets Sun to Saturn. The first Flora of the day is ruled by the lord of the weekday. The 2nd one is ruled by the lord of the 6th weekday countedfrom the first ruler. The 3rd Hora is ruled by fte lord of tbe 6th week day countedfrom the 2nd Hora lord. Similarly it proceedsin the same mannertill the first Hora of the next day is taken over by the lord of that. day himself. Whicheverplanet rules the birth Hora getsthe Hora Bala.

3. If the lord of a bhava is in the 4th from the bhava, no " countingis required. The houseoccupiedby the lord itself (i.e, 4th from the bhava) is the Arudha. For example, Leo ascendant havingthe Sun is the 4th sign in ScorpiogetsScorpioitself as Arudha Lagna.

6-7. PADAS FOR PLANTES : Note the posirion o f a planetand seehow many signsaway is its own sign with referenceto its position. Count so many sign from the said own sign and the resultant slgn will become the Arudha of the planets. lf a planet owns two Rasisor if a Rasi is ownedby two planets,considerthe strongerand declareeffects accordingly. ' Mtes : Here we are taught of what can be called as Graharudha planet'sArudha. From a perusal the above or of verses, we can take it to mean that there are 9 planetary Arudhas. Sincethe sage uses"Rasi ownedby two planets" he obviouslyhints at co-rulership Rahu and Ketu. Rahu is a of co-rulerof Aquariuswhile Ketu shares ownership of Scorpio (Vide sloka 157, ch. 46 infra). Assume that the Sun is in Capricorn. Counting from Caprigorn to Leo we get 8 signs. Again from Leo we count 8 signs and reach Pisces which is the Arudba for the Sun. The excepdo tions statedfor Bhavarudhas not apply to Graharudhas. In caseof other 5 planets(Mars to Saturn) each owns two signs. Then the counting of planet's Arudha in such a caseis to with reference the strongerofthe two signs. For deciding of strengths signsand planetsone has to usehis wise judgement apart from consultinghintsgiven in ch. 46. However, do not we haveany authenticinformaticn available to how to useGrahaas rudhas. Either we haveto work on bxperience keepsilent on or this issue. The literature available on Jaimini system being limited nothing more can be said about this.

Should the Upa padabe in a malefic's sign or iq aspectedby or.. is conjunct a malefic, one will become an asceticand go with-out a wife. If (in the said circumstances)there be a "benefic ' aspect (on upa pada or the related malefic), or conjunction' the of sfouse will not cometo pass. In this case, Sun if deprival .*ilt.d or ina friendly sign,is.not a malefic. He is a malerlcif sign. in debilitationor in an enemy's pada calculations,therc are more Notes : RegardingUpa thln two views on the same sloka of Parasaraor an idcntical Sutra from Jaimini.

If there be a planet in the 2nd from Upa pada in debilitation sign/Amsaor be conjunct with a debilitatedlmalefic planet, there will be destructionof wife. If the said occtrpant by be in exaltationsign/Navamsa be aspected another planct, or therewill be many charmingand virtuouswives. O Brahmin, if Gemini happensto be the 2nd from Upa pada, then also thcre will be many wives. O excellint of the Brahmins, if the Uparudha or the 2nd therefrom be occupiedby its own lord or if the saidlord is in his other own house,the deathof wife will be at an advancedage. Notes : In the examplecase,the Upa pada is in Aquarius, by a malefic'ssign and is powprfully aspected malefic Mars and is without benefic'saspect. However, thc 2nd from Upa pada is well fortified as its lord Jupiter is exalted and aspects the said 2nd house. Hence the native is happily married and endowed with progenichappiness. Loss of wife is to be expcctedif thc 2nd from Upa pada is occupiedby a debilitated planet, or the occupantof the aaid 2nd is in debilitation Navamsa,or is conjunct a debilitatedplanet (i.e. a baneficdebilitatedjoining a maleficin the 2ird from Upa pada) or a beneficjoining a maleficin said 2nd house. Taurus becomingthe Upa pada is said to givc many wives or plurality of marriage. Although there may be combinations for early loss of spouseif the 2nd lord from Uparudha(or Upapada)is in the 2nd prototthe native itself or is in his other sign, it.will considerably as from sucha calamity.

Argalasshould be countedfrom a sign or a planet as the casemay be. The Argata unobstructed be fruitiul while the wilr one duly obstructed will go astray. The Argala effectswill be derivedin the Dasaperiodsof the Rasi or planct concerned. 'Argala' in Sanskritis figuratively usedto denote - Notes : an impediment or obstruction.

Saturn, Mercury and Venus are malefics. Auspiciousare Jupiter and the Sun. The mereconjunctionof Saturnand Jupiter will not (althoughthey own a trine and angle). produceauspicious effects If Jupiter is at the disposal a malefic, he will surely give of inauspicious results. Venusis a direct (or independent) killer. saturn etc. will also inflict deathif associated with an adVerse planet(i.e. Venus). That is how the effects wiil be derived by an Aries native.

Notes : Jupiter is a maleficfor Taurusascendaut and will avail of the first opportunity to inflict harm as he ownsthe gth and llth housesboth of which are evil. He is the first-rate adversary. The Moon being the 3rd lord is not auspicious. Venus is also classifiedhere as an evil planetand a maraka planet, The words ,,frqtEq]" (Jeevadayo)indicate the Jupiter group, i.e. Jupiter, the Moon and Venus.

The rule that a malefic owning an angleshould own a trine also,so that he becomes Yogakaraka (vide sloka a 14 supra) is naturally not applicablc to the luminaries as they own only one sign each.

Mars is a killer for he owns the 7th and l2th. The role of Jupiter and Venus as killers is also understandable. Though the Moon is said to be a killer, she cannot inde. pendently do so for sheis only the 3rd lord which is the least maleficamong 3rd, 6th and I lth. The luminariesare considered not inauspiciouseven by ownership of the 8th house;as such the 3rd house lordshsp of the Moon in the case Taurus be of lenientlyviewedfrom the point of wiew of inflictingdeath.

The best planet for this ascendant Mars as he owns a is trine as well as an angle. The l0th lordshipwill prevail much more favourably as the l0th is the best of the 4 angles and Aries is the Moolatrikona sign of Mars. The other two favourable planets are Jupiter and the Moon. Jupiter is the lord of the 6th and 9th. Though 6th is his Moolatrikona,the sagehasgiven preferenceto the 9th lordship for obviouslytwo : reasons firstly the 9th is bestof the two trinesand Jupiteris a close friend of the Moon, the ascendantlord. The 3rd favourableplanet is the Moon who is the ascendant lord. The is order of preference Mars, Jupiterand the lvloon, i.e. benefic from one to another and hencethe Moon tendencywill descend is the leastbenefic. If Mars is well relatedto Jupiter,the Moon for or to the Sun, he can do wonders a Cancernative. The best place as far as Saturn is concernedis Capricorn in the company of Mars or the Moon.

The sun ruling the 6th will prove adverse though he has good termswith the lord of the ascendant, Jupiter Mars is the lord of the 2nd (Mooratrikona) and the 9th (the bestof the trines). Inspite of owning a killer-irouse,tre has bleir specifically erempt from acting as a kilter independently and placed in the yogakaraka list. To be a killer, Mars must be by instigated anotherkiller. viz. saturn or Mercury. Jupiter is I very favourable planet (of course next to t"turr) o*oiog tn" and the l0th. Though there is no specific meition ascendant of venu becominga killer in suchrote can be sein in him as he owns the 8th house.

Notes: The good disposition, bad dispositionand killing powers of the various pl4pets are assignedby the sageon a particular understandingof lordships etc. for each of the 12 asccndants. From the current two verses,we take an important clue about the final role of a planet. To wit, if a planet is constituent of a favourabteyoga, like, say, Daamini Yoga (one .of the Nabhasa Yogas), his original malefic tendencyof being an adverseplanet for a particular ascendant,he will give ihe cftectsof Daamini yoga and thus will becomea Rajayogakaraka. goodrole by lordship, Conversely,although a planet assumes if he is involvedin a bad yoga,like, say, Sarpayoga(one ofthc Nabhasayogasagain) there will only be adverse resultsand not favourable results due to lordship. These causesshould be properly estimated and effects denoted suitably. A killer is a or a killer irrespectiveof his havi'ng become Rajayogakaraka so. Killer and Yogakaraka should not be mixed togetherin respect of ono and the sameplanet.

This yogagivesphysicar beauty, exce'itent virtues and eloquent disposition. Though the teit does not mention, additional _effects : a happy life, health, wealth, 1,! longevity,fame etc Theseadditionaleffects will not rurrv .uiuri by a single ordinary benefic in the ascendant. A malefic or malefics in these pl{ces will produce AsubhaYoga or inauspiciousyoga. Each yoga is ln.r.uriini" malefic. As a result,thc subjectwiil be lipldinous, will indrilge in unethical and sinful deeds and be 6apableof bracketin-g others' possessions. While a single malefic may not give sJ bad results,two or three in suchpositionswilr indeedpioduce most unfavourableresults,apart from affectinghealth, longevity etc. adversely. Needless mention that in analysingthe results due to to good or bad combinations, one should take the planet's dignity, strength, relations with other planets and m"ny ru"tr ottrer factors into consideration. A mareficyoga can be nuilified by other compensatingfactors while a good yoga may not be productiveofexpectedgood results when involved in adverse circumstances.For example, assume that for an Aquarius Mercuryis in the 2nd housewhile Jupiteris in the l2th house.It will be detrimentalto rush to the conclusion that the ascendant is surrounded two benefics, that subha yoga results will by and improve the native.

Notes I The Parasari type of Gaja Kesari Yoga is on constructed a differentfooting' That Jupiter-Moon should yogaunderthis name' be in mutualanglesis a normallyaccepted kind of angularity cannotyield supreme In my opinion this of effects.The case mereof Jupiterbeing in exaltationin a lunar Yoga' angle can better be known as Pa:rchaMaha Purusha the In other cass angularity between spJcificallyHamsa Yoga. point of tile two neednot be giventhe nameGaja Kesari' In mutual angular placement is called as fact, the Moon-Jupiter simply KesariYoga, vide Phala Deepika, Ch' 6, sloka 14 etc' Thcetrectsgivenare:"Thenativewilldestroythebandofhiwill eneties. fre will be a lofty speakerin an assemblyand l'e long lived and famous' He will be servea king. He will intelligent". Referringto JatakaParijata,thereare two kinds of Gaja Kesariyogasmentionedtherein.Thefirstkindisformedb Jupiterbeing in an anglefrom the Moon' This is the common be lype of vogi. Second alternative is : The Moon should or Jupiter while the aspecting by asbected Mercury or Venus planet is free from debilitation and combustion'



Kumara Swameeyin a popular Tamit classicnas this yoga stati'g that the Moon shouldbe increasing(i.e. waxind wbile Jupiter shouldbe in the 4th or io the l0th from the said Moon. This comesto pass when a constituent is iu Taurus, pisces, Aquarius or Sagittarius. To wit, Gaja Kesari yoga is applicable to only four placements That is, Jupiter shourdbe in Aluarius while the Moon is in Taurus, or vice versa. Alternativeiy the Moon shoud be in sagittarius whire Jupiter is in pisces, oi vice versa. Please note that even cancer is omitted which is exaltation sign for Jupiter and own sign for the Moon.- In making such a specific statement, the author of Kumrn swrmeeyrm must obviousry have possessedan unporailelcd authority. Then we come to the Tamil tranelation of krasara Hora by C.G. Rajan. His version statesthat the Moon and Jupi-ter should be in mutual angles, but thc Moon should not Lve Mercury in the 5th from her, nor should she be in aspectto Mercury so that the Yoga obtainedis not simultaneouslygivcn annulment. Further the Moon should be free fro.. combwbt and debilitation. The sanskrit edition of parasaraHora of sri venkatesu.ra Press,Bombay,has it in sucha manner making it clear that Vaidyanatha of Jataka par[iata did take these verses from Parasara. (In fact many of the Raja yogas given in our current chapter have been used by other workg like phala Deepika, Kumara Swameeyam, Sata yoga Manjari, Jataka parijata etc)-. Coming back to Gaja Kesari yoga given by the Bombay series, we find that the Jupiter-Moon mutual angularity finds place in the first kind of yoga as given by vaidyanatha white thi second versionof vaidyanatha occursin the Bombayseriesin a different guise. It is statedthere that Mercury aspecting or joining the Moon, not placedin debilitation nor.being combust causesthie yoga. In the secondyoga, Venusand Jupiter are not riven any place. However, the two yogasgiven by Vaidyanathaare exactly , identical with the onesgiven in parasara Hora of rhakur prasad PustakaBhandaredition from Varanasi. The Chaukambhaedition doesnot differ from our version.


Brlhat Parasara Hora Sastra

Thus; I have placedall the different versions of Gaja Kesari Yoga before the reader. Though the name doesnot deserve any special consideration for Gaja Kesari yoga, I as would give less importance to the mere angular positionsof we Jupitcr-Moon. From otherformations, may understand that Raja Yoga resul8 will prcvail in tbe following conditions in a descendiog ordor. l. As given in Kumarr Swameeyam. edition and our edition. 2. As given in Chaukambha 3. The secondkind of yoga given by Jataka Parijata. 4. The second kind of yoga given by Bombayedition of Hora. Parasara But, we do not understand basis of C.G. Rajan why the Mercury should not aspectthe Moon or be in the 5th from her. Contrarily when Jupiter and the MooD are in mutual angles, Mercury in the 5th from the Moon will be an impetus to GaF Kcsari rather than becomingan impediment. Cnja Kesari yoga formed in any of the four manners above will give wcalth, fame etc. in the Dasa periods tuggcsted of Jupiter, Moon and planetsrelatedto them. Therc is also a school of thought that onc born in Kesari yoga will bc rich in tbe dasaof Vcnus.

37. LAGNADHI YOGA .. Should benefics in the Zth be and the 8th counted from the ascendant and be devoid of conjunction/aspect of malefics, Lagnadhi yoga is produced making onea greatperson,learnedin Sastras and happy. Notes : Sage Parasara does not include the 6th house from the ascendantfor Lagnadhiyoga. Only two houses are suggested, viz. the 7th and 8th from the ascendant. Tbis is so given in the versionsof Chaukamba,Sri Venkateswara Press, Thakur Prasad Pustaka Bhandara and C G. Rajan as well. The last three versions have an additionaf condition that the 4th house from the ascendant should at the same time be vacant. In Chandradhi yoga, the sagehas included the 6th house, seech.37infra, After a study of the various texts, we can conclude to the followirg effect : The 6th, 7th and 8th be occupied by benefics in any manner, i.e. the three bencfics, viz, Jupiter, Mercury and Venus may be disposed in one, two or three housesin 6th, 7th and 8th. No other maleficshould be in these housesnor aspect the occupants. The 4th from the ascendant or from the Moon. as the case may be, shouldremainunoccupied. Then Adhi yoga is obtained. The benefics mentoniedshould also be free from combustionand debilitation. If the yoga is formed in the above conditions, the native will Ue nighly learned, wcalthy and be among the most suprememen on the earth. The best Adhi yoga is, however, with Mercury in the 6th, Jupiter in the 7th and Venusin the gth house.

3-5 These yogas are to be known from the Karakarnsa ascendant and the natal ascendant. On the one hand the


Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra

pair of Atmakaraka and Putrakaraka and on the other hand the natal ascendant lord and the 5th lord be considered. Tbe effects due to such association will be full, or a half or I quarter accordingto their strengths. Notes : Raja Yogas giving status can be tbrmed with Karakamsa Lagna as the reckoningpoint. Similarly the natal is ascendant also another centerwherefrom such yogasemanate' (Karakamsa Lagna is the Navamsa occupied by the Atma Karaka planet.) in evalIf Karakamsa ascendantis oeing considered of Raja yogas, the status of Putra Karaka is also uation to be taken into account. Here Putra Karaka is Chara Karaka. He is the 6th in statusin the Atma Karaka scheme, as eiplained in slokas13-17 of ch. 32 supra. On the other hand ifnatal ascendant is being consideredthe 5th lord from should also be scrutinized in terms of dignity, natal ascendant so that the real clues to the yoga are made out rightly. The Sth tord has been given a very important position in the analysis of Rajr Yoges by the sagedquating hin with the 9th lord or evenmore, vide stokas33 and 34 of the current chapter. We shall now take an expandedclue of the two hints given in tho present verses about the evaluation of Raja yogBs. There are certain Raja Yogas formed with reference to Karakamsaascendant, Atma Karaka's position in the Rasi chart, Amatya Karaka, Upapada,Arudha pada etc.-so to say in the Jaimini style-as can be seen in our present text. For cxample takc the rule given in sloka 22 of the current chapter where it is stated that Atma Karaka in benefic's Rasi or Navamsa will make one wealthy. In the chart given in ch. 29 (sloka l-3), we have Atma Karaka Moon in Jupiter's Navamsa. So as per the rule the native should becoms we rich. To strengthenthis argument, find Jupiter in exaltation. Putra Karaka (Chara scheme)for the gid horoscope in the Sun. He aspects the ascendant. In the Navamsachart, the Sun is placed in the 4th from Atma Karaka. All these 'the indicate that native should be wealthy. If Putra Karaka (Chara) and Karakamsa Lagnaare not well related,the yogas relatedto that schemewill be futile.


Chapter 39


Next take the natal ascendant lord and the 5ti lord from the natal ascendant. In assessing Raja yogasstrengthralated the to the natal ascendant, the strength'and relationship between thesetwo lords should be correctly understood. In the exampte chart cited aboVe,the 5th lord is Jupiter who is exaltedand is cndowedwith a Shadbalaof 9,32 Rupas and Mars 7.32 Rupas. Their Vimsopaka strengths-are respectively 16.45 aod 16.g0 points making them extrenely well disposedto cause vigopr to anyRajayoga in thc horoscope Hcnce it is apparent that the sage.correlates Chara the Putra Karaka with the Karakamsaascendant (or Atmakaraka) and the 5th lord from natal ascendant with the lord of the natal ascendant itself.

Notes : Though mid-day and mid-night are denoted in the translation for Dinardha and Nisardba a clarification is cssentialin regard to the implicationsof these.Mid-day simply denotes12 Noon while mid-night zero hour as per commou use. But what the sage implies is somewhat diffcrent. Dinardha means half of the day while Nisardha means half of the night, keeping in mind the Sun rise and Sun setar a given place. ,The versehas a yoga to indicate that if there is a birth

Chapter 39


within an hour of the said Dinardha or Nisardha, the native will be a king. I shail illustratethis with a practical case. Take for instancea birth on l5th February 1947 at Jodhpur 73 E 2 and 26 N lg. The local sun rise is ai 063g hrs and sun set at 1749 hrs. Hence for this latitudeand date, the dayduration is llh llm and night duration l2h49m, Divide the day duration by two to get Dinardhawhich indicates 5h 35m. similarlydividingnightduratio by 2 we get Nisardha o as 6h 24m. Add 5h 35m to sun rise which wilr give harf the day duration. Thus by adding 5h 35m to Otr lgm, we get I2h l3m. Similarly in the case of night, the nigbt durati-on of l2h 49m be halved and the figure'arrivedat is tb be added tosun set. Thus weget Oh l3m (i.e. 13 mlater thanthe usualmid-night). From the abovewe may understand that by simply taking t2 noonas mid-dayand 0 hour as mid-nightit witt noiser". oui purposein the contextofthe yogasuggested the sage. Needby lessto mentionthat LMT is to be usedfor these calcuLtions. Uttara Kslanrita has two yogas in this respect, viz. Koteeswarayoga and Lakshadhikari yoga(vide crr 4, sroka30;. Accordingto its author if therebe a birth within 2 ehatikas(i.e. 4E minutes as against parasara's mention of 60 minutesj of Dinardhaand Nisardha,a king is born who will conquer his enemies and observe religious rules of conduct and be learned. further adds that if in the saidcase exalted fie an planet is i:i the 2nd house,in aspectto anotherexalted planet,a Koteeswara is born' If the aspectig planet is in its own house(insteadof being in eraltation) the nativewill then be only a Lakshadher*orul Suffice to say that there will be relatively less riches in the it secondcase.

Notes : The 5th lord has beenpsed in spiritual and material planes well. Whereas 9th lord is solelyrelatedto onc's as the spiritualachievements could be seenby the treatment given as by Maharshi Parasarain the above5 slokas. The word Tridandi hasbeen translated as above in the contextof relatingthe native to a Sansyasi these slokas as exclusivelyconcentrate on the spiritual achievements the of 'Tridandi'alsomeans native. one who obtained command over and deed. Without 'TrikarandSuddhi' or purity mind, speech of thesethree it will not be possibte for one to achieve Oiuinl bliss.One who thinks bad in his mind though good in the other two spheres,viz. speechand actions cannotbe calleda pure character.Or one who.thinks of good and speaks similarly but actsin a contrary manner cannot be a successful spiritualist. Lastly one who speaks und'esirable words though good in thinking and actingcannotalso reach self realisation. Hence it is evident that one should be a 'Tridandi' or endowed with Trikarana Suddhi, -so that he locatesthe Almighty at every point of space and time. We haveso far seen that 5th and 9th lordsare primarity 'realth givers. The sagealsodenotes 5th and 9th lords the as lords of 'Lakshmi sthanas'.Lakshmi though normally means conveysa meaningsplendour (our lustre). Tt i, wealth,further relatesto dlvine splendour acquircd by a personthrough his ive iiiritual merits.If a personis splendorous, seein him what ii called Brrhma Varchrs or the splendour making him look lite God, free from any material attachment.I; this context pe cannot but recall great personageslike Rama Krishna of ftrama Hamsa, Maharshi Ramana, Sankaracharyas various prdersand periods, Sivananda and so on aitd so forth. In all these cases, the 5th and 9tt lords and 5th and 9th houses enabledthem earn that splendour.The wealth they earned is such that it cannot be exhausted even after many centuries, i e. divine status.

Notes : The 4 houses,viz. the lst, 4th, ?th and l0th are known as Vishnusthaanas while the 5th and ahd 9th are l-akshmisthaanas. Hindu mythology, Lakshmi is a consortof Lord In Vishnu,the supreme god.A relationship thus between angular an lord and a trinal lord is capable causinga superiorRajayoga, of just as bne having the blessings Sri Vishnu and His consort of Lakshmiwill be endowed with permanent wellbeing. The kinds of relationship betweenplanets that will be favourableare : these two tords. l. An exchange between thesetwo lords. aspects between 2. Mutual 3. Conjunctionof these two lords. 4. Mutual angularplacement existingbetween thesetwo. 5. Mutual trinal placement between thesetwo. The first three kinds of relationships more powerful are while the last two cannot be equally powert'ul but in a lesser degree. A sixth kind of relationshipcan also be extended this in contextto Navamsa positions thoughI have no specific ciassic sanctionfor this. For example a Capricornian's in case, Mars in the Navamsaof.Venusand Venusin that of Mars will confer a superiorRaja yoga. This form of relationship will be eqally superior like the first 3 relationships mentioned by me in thc earlier paragraph. After seeingsuch a relationship between an angular lord and a trinal lord, their dignities like Parijataetc. will haveto bc Eeento dccidethe extent ofeffects due as could be seen in the following six verses.

deserve answerat all and is worth beingbrushed asideas an an idle gossip. The holdersof suchopinion may advance million a arguments their own favour. Our query to them is: which in exponent referred to the horoscopic positionsof Lord Vishnu, Harischandra, Manu, Bali Chakravarthi, Agni Deva,Swayambhu Manu and last but not the least the Creater Brahmatrimself? Is it humanlypossible, but for a sage, with divine contacts, to producecombinations existingin the sacred horoscopesof Vishnu, Brahmaetc.?Also note with specificattentionthe statement of Parasarathat "Dharma Raja (the eldest son of king Pandu, of Maha Bbarata)of the present oge,has this yoga". Does this not stand as an indisputabletestimony of Parasara having lived in the Maha Bharataera ? Yet, another clue about Parosara servedwhenin the is abovelineswe find his prediction that Salivahana and others '"will be born" with this yoga. The verb used is bhavita in future tense. That conveysthat Parasarawas a predecessor of of Salivahana not a successor Bhattotpala and etc. MaharshiJaimini,author of PoorvaMimamsaand propagator of Jaimini Astrologywasa discipleof Parasara. Parasara If lived in the lTth century,what aboutJaimini ? attentionof the reader is drewn to the statement Specific of Parasara ]sloka 32above,to the effectthat "in the present in Yuga" Dharma Raja is born with sucha yoga.This is an ample proof that our sagewas in Maha Bharata time and was the illustriousparentof illustriousVedaVyasa. Lastly,the following popular quotation enlists Parasart of amongthe l8 exponents Jyotisha:

These are for maleficplanetswhite a benefic this conin nection loses only half of what is notcd for a malefie. The Moon is ever a benefic for longevity calculations, as. per Maharshi Parasara. (Mercury although joining a malefic be treated as a benefic only, lbr all longevitycalculations.) We find herethat thereis harmonicprogression thesedeductions in and hencewe ought to havea scientific and logical approach to the quantunrof correction,ratherthan resorting a flat check to arbitrarily. There is no justificationin straightawayeliminating the whole,for example,for a maleficin the l2th not giving heed placement.It.should be full at the l2th to his actualdegreewise bhavaendingpoint, poroprtionately lesson the l2th cusp and on point of l2th bhava or Ilth bhava still lesser thc beginning ending point. That is, starting with a l00f lesson the l2rh bhava ending we gradually arrive for a50/" reductionat the point where the llth bhava ends.. Thus it will be one sixth reduction at the ond of 7rh bhavawhile it will be l/7th at the beginaing of the 7th bhava (or end of the 6th bhava). The reductionobtainedby this methodshould bc half in the case of (i.e. Jupiter,"Vdnus, Mercury and the Moon). Witha benefic out going through any difficult process,for each bhava, a common formula is given with which one can rectify the basic of contributions a planet io one of thesehouses. Thc formula is :

Saturn is 12.3979years. He is l7,3i72degreeraheadofthc 8th bhavabeginning. Thcrefore,his reduction is : 12 3979 :2.2869 years Thus, on accdunt of Vyayadi Harana, Saturn entailsa check of 2.2869 yezrs. In the example horoscope, Mercury is not liablc to this reductionas he is quite prior to tho beginoing of the 7th bhava. others that attract this check arc : Thc sun, the Moon, Venus, Mars and Jupiter.

Kroorodaya Harana : Only malefics(i.e. Saturn, the S,rn and Mars) entail this check if in the ascendant. Mercury,though joining a natural maleficwill not be liable to this reduction. We do not requirethis rcductionto any planet in the example horoscope, as there is nonein thg ascendant. the Here the ascendantmeans the area between startingand find out this reduction, ending points of the sign rising. To cusp in degrees, minutes and seconds be tte ascendental ,multiplied by the number of basicyearsdonatedby the malefic and divided by 21600. The divider is 21600as these concerned are the total minutes of arc in the zodiac. The figure so arrived should be reduced from the said malefic'sbasiccontribution. the However, if a beneficaspects said malefic, reduce only balf of the figure so suggested 5. We have thus seenfour typei of reductions. At every stage the reduction should not be done instantaneously. After obtaining the reduction figures, whereverpermitted,check up if there is more than one reduction for one and the same planet in under various headings. The following may be remembered this connection. (a) If a planet attracts more rnan one rednction, thc highest reduction is only to be done ignoring the orhers. For

exampfe, assume Mercury attracts reduction of 7.5yearsdue a to rule, l, folloived by 2.3 yearsdue to rute 2 anOi.3S yearir due to rule 3. The highest reduction is due to rute i and hence only 7.S is to be deducted and the other two figuresbe ignored in toto. (b) In case of Vyayadi Harana (rule 3), two or three plancts may be in one bhava. In that case,the strongest loses and the other (or others)will not lose. Not only the planets, but the asbcndant also grantsa certainnumberof years. This figureshould alsb bc found out before adding to the planetary contributions. To know the the number of years granted by the asccnclant, firstlynote the numberof signsintervening bctween Aries ancl the sign before the ascendant.That is, if Sagittarius tlrc asccndant, is count upto Scorpio beginning from Arics. This dcnotesg years. The degrees the ascendant also proportionatcly convertcd in be into years treating 30 degrces one year, or ,2.5 as degrees a as 'month. The contributiqnof asccndant will bc so calculatedif the asccndant lord is strongerthan the Navamsa Lagnalord. In case the Navamsa Lagna lord is stronger than his cotrnterpart,a different computationis to be rcsortedto, thus. Count from Aries till you rcacha sign beforcNavamsa Lagna. In the case under study, the Navamsa Lagnalord, Moon, is strongerthan the ascendant lord. Hencewe cqmpute Navamsa Iagna's contributionfor our own use. The NavamsaLagna is Cancer. Hencefrom Aries to Cancerwe havethrec cornpleted Navamsas which give 3 year. The ascending degreeis 0-4g-34 whereas onb Navamsa 3" 20'. Proportionately thus we get is another0.2428yearsand have the total contribution of 3.242g years 8s Ascendant'scontribution. In caseof Navamsa treat 3" 20' as one full year. ' The ascendanr's contributionundergoes no check. Now we are ready for final reductions. 'There are planets the 7th house, 3 in viz. tbe Sun,the Moon and Venus. .The Sun is the strongest and hence Vyayadi Harna (rule 3) appliesto only the Sun while venusand the Moon are'rid of reduction on this score. The Sun is in enemy,s campand on tbis scorehe loses third of 17 5642, a which reduction is equal to 5,854i. This figure is higher thanthe one obtained for the

Notes : The 3rd houseis alsoa houseof longevity it is as thc 8th from the 8th. The 2nd house-l2rh from the 3rd-and thc 7th house-l2th from the 8th-are two principle Maraka houses. Thc lordq of these houseswill also acquire such qualitieogiving life or taking away life.

Notes : The 2nd an<l 7th are denotedas Maraka houses. but the 2nd is givena more important placeto kill than the 7th house. For the 2nd houseacquiresan additional qualification of beingin the 7th from the 8th house.Thus, the 2nd is l2th from the 3rd, and 7th from the 8th. If thereiq a maleficin the 2nd or in the 7th, he will be a prime killer while a benefic will not be so. The Dasa periods of suchplanetswill inflict death.

The Dasaof a planetwhich is an exclusive malclic (i.e. first-ratemalefic)may also cause death. Notes : The l2th house isalsoa house death,for it is of the terminal house. Malefics related to 2nd, 3rd, Tth and 8rh will cause deathwhile or not a benefic relatedto l2th will do so. The Dasaof a malefic,whelheror not he is a lord of oneof these houses,will also prove harmful for spanof life. Ho\wever,for Saturn,a dilferentapproach recommended. is given are just general and are hints to decide The rules deathgivers. The life spanshould be ascertained through other Ayurdaya catculations, and the exact dasaperiodsbe dccided only later on. Simply sayingthat the 2nd lord's dasawill bring in death and so on and so forth will be a misnomer. The sage suggests that the occupantsof the 3rd,alsowi[ causedeath.. Thus thc 8th and the 3rd, though known as housesof longevity,are gimultaneously capableof causing death. For the information of the reader,the Maraka planetsin the ascending are : occuponts ofor lords of l2th, 3rd, 8rh, ?th and 2nd. The lords/ gccupantsof 6th and llth are seco'ndgrade killers.

15-21. I furtber mention about the Maraka planets. One born with short lifs combinations may face death in the Dasadenotedby Vipat star (3rd from birth star);one of medium life may die in the dasadenotcdby Pratyak star (5th from birth star). .In the dasa denotedby Vadha star (7th from birth star), -one with long life may obtain his end. The dasaof the lord of may or 22nd decanate the one of 23rd, 3rd, Sth or ?th asterisms also cause death. The lords of the 2nd and l2th counted from the Moon sign may bring death,this is true when the said ruler is a maleficand if he be a beneficthere will be (only) disease (but not death). Death may cometo passin the dasaof the 6th lord and in the sub periodsof 6th/8th/l2th lords. Should there be many Marakas (endowedwith the power of killing) and be strong, therc will be diseases,misbriesetc. in the respective major and sub periods. Thus theseare Marakas (as above)and deathupon the native. Accor' are primarily relatedto descend ding to thcir dispositiousthere may be dcath or difficulties.

Notes : The Maraka power of a planet may be correlated to the spanof life arrived by other calculations. If both coincide therewill be death. If thereis a variation, therc will not be deathbut difficulties equalto deathlike miseries, diseases, poverty etc.

30.37. CALCALATION OF SAYANA AND OTHER viz' Sayana, AVASTHAS : I now tell you of the avasthas Sabha, Netrapani,Prakasana,Gamana, Aagamana, Upavesana, Bhojane, Nrityalipsa, Kautuka and Nidra, and the Aiama, of chesthas suchavasthas. Note the numberof the stars([rom occupied by thc planet for which Avastha is to be Aswini). calculated.Multiply that number by the numbcr denoted by the planet (Sun l, Moon 2 etc.). The figurc so arrivedat be ' again multiplied by the number of Navamsa the planet the is in. Add to this the number of birth astcrism, number ghatis of birth and the number o[ signs the ascendant of gained from Aries. This figure be divided by 12 and the of Avastha the planet' the will indicate corresponding iemainder in the said Avastha can be found out thus : The sub state Multi2ly the figure denoted by the Avastha concerneo(i c' it l, Sayana Upavesana2 etc) by the samefigureand incrcase denotedby the Anka valuc for the first syllablcof by the figure the native's personal name. Dividc the productso obtained by thereof be furthcr increascd constant by 12. - The remainder thus : Sun 5, Moon 2, Mars 2, planetary additamdtrts, Mercury3, Jupiter5, Venus3, Saturn3, Rahu4 (ald Ketu 4)' (Here the planetmeansthe one for whom the substateis being known.) The product so arrivedat be divided by 3. In th and if 0 process the remainderis l, it is Drishti,' if 2 Clreshta if Vicheshta. Notes: So far narrated are .three differentgroupsof Avasthas. are Avasthas. Thc present Avasthas calledSayanadi d compare to the other kinds as importance Thesearc of supreme of Avasthas. ' The following formula may be adoptedto know about the at planet'sAvastha(Sayanadi) birth. (sx,pxn) * (a*g-j-r): Avastha l2 the Whereas 's' denotes serialnumberof the star occupied the planet, counted from Aswini at birth; 'p' denotes by thc

statusof the ptanetcounted from the Sun (i.e. Sun l, Mercury 4 etc; 'n' denotes the planet's Navamsa position (i.e. I to 9 'a' Navamsas); denotes Janma Nakshatra(or ruling star, i.e. the one occupiedby the Moon); 'g' denotes the ghati in which birth took place (i.e. 20gh 2 vigh is 2lgh) and 'r' denotes the ascendant's order counted from Aries (i.e. Cancerd Leo 5, so on and.soforth). In placeof 'n' given above, some translators interpretthe 'Amsa' as degree word occupied the planetwhich is obviously by not correct. [n this connection, the reader's attentionis drawn to Balabhadra's Hora Ratna, ch 3 wherein the author himselfgivcs an example for the Sun beingin the Balabhadra 7th Navamsa Leo and thus he considered of only 7 as muliiptier. He hasnot taken in to account the Sun's degree. He quotes Adhbbuta Segara as his authority for calculation Sayanadi of Avasthas. It will thus be clear that 'Amsa' is Navamsa and not degree this context. in (the 6th one) is . Also pleasc note that Aagamanavastha by known as Gamanechchavastha someexponentsTakc a casenow as an example with the following data. The Sun in Krittika Nakshatra, 3rd Navamsa of Taurus(i.e in ?o l2'Taurus), birth star Krittika, birthat 30gh3jvigh, and ascendantin Scorpio.
