Subramanya graceand the sameis bcing ptacedbefore thc public. Tbis ic an exact reprint of the cdition that was brought out by Shri Sastriin the ycar 1932. No words of introductionare rcquired ' by rs the works of Sh. Sastriare all masterpieces themselves lnd havc rightly earnedthe fame tbat is their due. The earlier cdition was long out of print and theic war an cver growing dcmandfor this book and thc prescnt edition is intended to fulfill this long-feltdemand. The importanceof this work Jataka Parijatacannot be It studied cxa.gerated. is a basictext book of Hindu Astrology, glmost in all parts of the country by studentsand scholars alike. It is a book invariably prescribed study in almost for on text book all orientalexrrminations Jyotisha. As a classical only to BrihatJataof Hindu Astrologyit ranksnext perhaps 1a... The fact remains that Brihat Jatakais too brief and difficultand that was why works like Horasara, Saravalietc. ',rycrc written with a view to supply all that is obscure, hidden and missing therein. Among thesc works is none that can excelJataka Parijata in providing a detailed knowledge about all thc essential aspectslike Ayurdaya. yogas, Bhavaphala, Vimshottari, Ashtakvarga,Stri Jataka, Kalachakra Dasbaetc.The work hasbeen translated in mostof tbe rcgional languages like Malayalam, Hindi etc and is held in high cstecmby astrologers a book of great authority throughout as the country

The method of allocation of the segments is in no wise different from that of (2) above, except for the circumstance that in place of the divinities we substitute the names of the 9th, l0th, llth and l2th signscounted from the positivesigns (under segmentation. When the sign under segmentation is negative, the order of qaming is, of course, as usual, reversed.

'The predictivp value of the 16s11i1r)segmentation is' as may in the absencc be expected, involved in considerable obscurity' 'iuthors among astrological of any consensus of testimony and as to the afrnities of the several segments with the signs authors And the sad part of it is tttat reiutable the planets. like Varahamihira (e-wFntd, Kalvanavarman (tqprcd{) and Bala' bhadra' (qery<) have nothing to say about the Shodasamsa in their works. An ingenious iuterpretatiOn of this somewhat obscure variant of the verse has been oflered by Mr. T. V. Sarma of I'anjore on tLe authority (as he tells me) of Pandit C. Saptarshi Sastrv of Tanjore. or " [n an odcl sign, the lords of the Shodasamsas the sixteen are those of the twelve signs reckoned from tLat sub-divisions sign onward, together rvith those- of the 9th, lOth, llth and l2th 'signs from the same sign. In an gven sign, the lords are to be countedin tlre reverse order from the l2th sign. Notes-In an odd sign, the lirst twelve sub'divisions are ruled by the lords of the twelve signs beginning from that sign and the rcmaining four sub'divisions are respectively ruled by the lords of thegth, l0th, llthand lZthsignscount6dfrom the same sign. ln an evon sign on the.other hand, the first four sub-divisions are rcspectively governed by the lords of the lZth, I lth, l0th and 9th signs from that sign.and the remaining sub'divisions are respecti' vely ruled by the lords of the twelve signs but couuted in the reverse order. It is a peculiarity of our ancient Hindu authors to denoto numbers by the two well'known notation known as the Kata' payadi (q-zcqtii), and the Arnavadi (rrol'{fR), Sankhyas. The words Virinchi (ftRfh), Sauri (1rlfr), lsaGtr), and Dirvakara (frqrdr), are uscd in accordance with the latter Spnkhya. Virinchi (ftRB) or Brahn',an (agq) represents 9 (the Prajapatis, Marichi, (qtn?), Bhrigu (W), Angiras (ffirw), Pulasthya (goe), PlrtFha, (gw), Kratu (n-g), otLtha (tt), Attrri (qtt) and Vriddhavasi rS 1a (agw{ts). Souri (ttrR) or Vishnu (fig) represents l0 (the lO Avataras). ta (fu) stands for I I ithe I I Rudras. and Diwakara (kcrfr() tq 12 {tne l2 Adityas)."

Of the former class may be mentioned the following:Hora (fr<t) for the Lagua; Duschikya (eArgl for- the 3rd house; Meshurana G{ryt) for the l0th; Ripha (Rrq') for the l2th; Chaturasra (S"g() for the 4th and 8th houses ; Kantaka (moa+), Kendra (*-.a) and Chatushtava (qgsc) for tbe lst, +th, 7th and 10th houses: Panaphera fquFF-{; for the ?nd, sth, 8th and llth houses; and Apoklima (qrmtB{) for the 3rd, 6th, 9th and l2th houses.

When the of day or night is 30 ghctikns, the position t of Mandi ({lFE) on the week days counting from Sunday onwards is at the end of ghatikas 26, 22, 18, 14, 10, 6 and 2 duting davtime. These figures have to be proportionately increased pr diminished I . according as the length of'day chosen is greater or less than 30 qhatikas. But since the lords of thefirst 7 muhurtas in the night are counted, not from the lord of the weelcday chosen, but from that of the 5th, the position of Mandi at night time will be differeut on. the week days, viz: et the end of ghatikas 10,6, 2,26,22,'18 and 14 respectively The position of Yamakantaka during daylime on weekdays is at the end of ghatikas 18, 14, 10,6,2, 26, &22: of Ardhaprahara,i at'the end of ghatikas 14, l0 and 6, 2, 26,22-atd 18 ; of Kala, at thc end of ghatikas 2,26,22,18, l+, l0 and6. The position of Dhuma is foundbyedding4 signs, 13 degrees, minutes to the figures for the Sun. . Substract Dhuma ftom 12 20 tigns, Thp result is Vyathipatha. Thts incra,sed by 6 signs,r becomes Parivesha or Paridhi. When Parivesha again is.subtract' ed from 12 sigos, we get Indrachapa. Add to this 16 degrees, 4Q minutes ; Kethu is obtaiued. Kethu increased by one sign will givc the figures for. the Sun. Dbauus, Karmuka and Chapa are all synonyms.

It has often been seen that, in the case of 2 or more persoDsborn at one and the sanie time (say in the same Lagla, in the same day, month and year), the. phalas or effects are not at all similar but quite different. This is mostly due to the entire change in their Avasthas (E{s-gr:)in n'hich the ptanets are situated in these lioroscopes' !'or insl.ance, .one ought to naturallj' expect Sarrthanavriddhi (rqrta?) if -a 'benefic planet Puthrauasa (ga;6r) if a occupies the 5th housean<l palefic one should occupy the same. But it is stated that beuefic planets in tlre Cheshta (=)st)state in the Sayana (:f+q) and Nidra Avasthas (fr4r w<vr) occupying the 5th house do moro harm tharr t good for progeuy, while malefics in the same positiori ancl in the eame conditions are capable of .helping the Santhanavriddhi (silIqER) of the native. As the several Avasthas (qcqrl:) of the planets are thus seen to play a very iruportant part in moulding tbe nature of their eflects cluring any birth, a detailed description cf the sante here will not be cousidereclout of place.

malefics are in the invisible portion of thc Zodiac. Therefore, if et all there should be marks or moles, they must be on the right ride of the body. In the above figure, to determino the decanatos of tbc various bhavas according to the principles laid dorvn iu Sloka 77, we proceed as follows:_ Now I agna is Mesha 25". It is the 3rd decanate of lt{esha. Thc first decanate of the Lagna rules from 25o of Mesha to 5o of Vrishabba. The 2nd rdecauate of th6 Lagnabegins from 6o of Vrishabba. The 3rd begins from l5o of Vrishabha and extends to 25o of Vrishabha. As thc lst decanato of the Lagna happens to be rthe 3rd -Th.r"foru dccanatc of Mesha,Table III applics. the lsf decanato of thc Lagna symboliscs the pelvis. The 2ud decanateof the Lagna happensto bc the tst decanateof Vrishabha, order being III, I and II throughout; the first (I) appties. Therefore the Znd -figure dscenatc of tbe Lagna symbolises tle hcad. Similarly, the 3rd dccanatc of the Lagua (;nd dccanetc of Vrishabha) symbolises the neck (Fig. II); and so on with rcspcct to thc other bhavas. In horoscopc, (he order with rcspcct to cvcry bhava l!: ry. being III' I aod II, the sun's position refresents the right shoulder.

The iuterpretation given above appears morl ratiohil ibA many instances (of the simultaneous demise of mother and child) yogas that are of common occurrenee may be brought under the thc Moon, cited in the first half of the Sloka. In the first ioga, wh.rtever may be her position, is very puch affiicted, being in con' junction not only with Rahu but also with another maleficr and the 8th house is occupied by Mars as n'e11. With the abo-vq tho Sun's position in the Lagna is further nccessary to cause the demise as a resul.t of operation. Moreover, there was no aecesity for Varaharnihira to use the word ergq (Asubha) if he did uot intend any one of the planet*, ttiz,, Saturn or the Sun' Tho word ofr (I-agne) should be taken onlv with <sl (Ravow) ttrat is next to it pnd need not apply to q..i (Chandre) in the first line which is q-digilfi frr removed, inasmuch ss so manv words S+ ft*Tar&a ieg: (Kuje Nidhanasrithd Jananisuthayormritbvu) intervene. The commentator Bhattotpala takes the word ctc (Grasthl) as referring to eclipse (lunar or solar). According to his view, the translation of the first half of the sloka will be " when the Moon in' conjunction with Saturn is eclipsed iu tbe Lagna and. llars occupies the 8th place'from it, both the mother and the child will die, and the death will eusue from the eftect of au operation if the Sun be in thcabove position, (i. c', if thc Sun in conjuuction irith Mcrcury and Saturn bc eolipsed iu tbe La$nr ind Mars bo in

.sL g?



the 8th place fron it.)" So that such deaths shoqld be expccted only lb times of eclipses, and tbose by operation especially io tbe Solar ones. According to this ,interpretation the word etgu (Asubha) in qgrrcfet qR q.R (Asubhasahithb Grasth0 Chandr) can mean only Saturn and no other malefic planet. For, an eclipse of the Moon can occur'only on a full-moon day and the Sun will then be in the 7th place or in direct opposition. Consequently Mercury will not be near the Moon.

The p-rinciple to be noted hore is that the deduction is enjoin' benefic or malefic-.if they are in the od for planets-whether visible half. In the presont horoscope, according to the obovo rute, thcro n planets in the l2lh, vit" Mars and lWercury, of whom l erc two " I[trs is stronger; Mars therefore loses all his years. This reduction $ is enough and reduction in the ,:ase of Mercury is not necessary. { Th. Moon is in the l0th l-rouse. He is beuelic and therefore His years when reduced will be 14'55*. lorcs *th. I Juprter is iu the 9th. He loses *th nnd his reduced period is t7'766 years. lt should however be clearly understood that the above com' * * rrutations are only rough and not quite accurate iuasmuch as no distinction is made betrveen a planet occupying the beg:inning 9f a bhava and another occupying the end of it. Both are rnade to sufier the^sameamount of reduction which is not correct. Again, 'fsupposethereisa planet occupying the beginning of the l2th houseaud another the end of the t I th, the relative distance between t them being say otrly 2 or 3 degrees. If the rules enunciated abovc are to be strictly applied, one planet (that is ib the lZth lrouse) loses his whole period while that in the llth loses only one half whiclr is rnathematically not correct. To calcutate the Ayurdaya periods of the several planets correctly and accuratel]', readers ero requested to refer to the 5th Adhyaya of 4tCirqqR: (Sripati'paddhati) and the samBle horoscope worked out by me tlrerein.

Tbe greatest amount of reduction under this count will bo rllzth of the whole Ayus wheu the Lagna happens be the vcry to end of a sign. According to somc,the numberoi y""r, of reduction is obtained by multiplying the total number of years already obtained by the number of Navamsas betwcos the first point of Meshaand the Lajna-whole and fractionar-and dividing the product by l0S. Thus, should the Lagnabe at the very end of Meene,and if a malefic should occupy the same, the whole Ayus is lost. The former view appears more rational.

The rRrsrgflc (Rasmijayurdaya) system founded by Mahendra has been in vogue from a very long time and has been recognised by eminent astrologers such as Manittha, IVIaya, Yavana end Badarayana. A brief description of the method of obtaining the correct number of <?tq(Rasmi) or rays of planets is given below : The seven planets from the Sun onrvards have respectively 10, 9, 5, 5,7, I and 5 rays when they are in their full exaltation position, the corresponding number of rays when in their depression being zero in each case. The number of rays which a planet in eny intermediate position is entitled to, has therefore to be determined by mere rule-of.three When a planet has emergedfrom its dtq (Neecha) or depres' sion and is on its way towards its exaltation, its rays are said to be efug< (Abhimukhal or facing towards the front. These rays are declared to be capable of producing benefic results to thc native in a very short time. The reverse is the case with,tho q(|{gC (Parangmukha) or down'looking rays of planets which have fallen from their sq (Uchchs) or eraltation towards their depression. aDd are going

The rays have to undergo some multiplications and reductions, befcrc their utilisation for purposes of prediction. When a planet occupies a Dwadasamsa which is his own, his craltation, or tbat of e friendly planet, his rays arc to be doubled. The same remark applies when the planet is retrograde in bic motion or is in his g&e (Swakshetra) nasi. But if the Dwada gsrmsa that of an enemy or the planet's Tlq{lfu (Neecha be naJ, the rays suller areduction by l/l6th portion. All planets_ Venue and Saturn excepted-lose their.rays whm they becooe N<Ird(Asthangatha) or eclipscd. when tbe retrograde motion of a planet isabout tocease, the rays suffer a reduction by{tl.

It is also stated that the native should be declared long.lived when the number of rays exceed 25, as one of rnedium life when it is between l5 and 25, and short.lived when thc number falls short

The following is the rule for finding tbe times of (Gulika) gftq and others on the several week-days: Divide the day into 8 parts. The lords of the first 7 parts are the 7 pLanets counted in order from the lord of the day; the 8th portion is tordless. Saturn's portion in each day is called gted (Gulika). Nights are similarly divided into 8 portions or muhurtas. The lords of the first 7 muhurtas are the 7 planets counted from the lord of the fifth week-day from the day chosen; the 8th portion lis without a lord- Here again Saturn's muhurta ir gfut (Gulika). (Yar4akantaka); that of Mars Jupiter's styled ?m{.'r-dfi is termed t.rj (Mrityu). The Sun's muhurta is called wo (Kala); Mercury's, Br.i$6( (Ardhaprahara). The position of gftq (Cutita) and others is assignedat the end of their respective muhurtas.. For the horoscope taken for illustration in page 238, the bosition of qftq (Mandi) is thus found out : The time of blrth was Friday rigbt. The first Muhurta on Friday night belongs to Mars, the lord of the 5th weekday from Friday. Therefore grtt (Gutit<a) i, e, Saturn's druhurta is ihe 5th. The length of Friday night in questionis given* tobe r29 s.5 R. Therefore each muhurta is 3 c. 38'125 ft. The 5th muhurta ends at l8 e. l6'6c,5 [t. Gulika's position is l0 signs, 20 +7, S+ correspondiug to this time. Similarly ihe positions of qsf,qq (Arana prahara) etc. may be found. lVida also notes on ll4 sttpra.f In tbe same example, the I.agna is 0-l4o-3 l'-46., MultiAdding q|F< (Manaii Dlying by 5, we get 2-12o-38'-50."

The 2\od decanateis the 3rd decanate of Scorpio rvhich is ruled by the l\{oon. The ruler of the 8th house is Mars. Therefore death is accidental, unexpectedor short because it is l\{ars.
