My interestin Jaimini was aroused over 20 years ago yet a college student by a Kerala Brahmin whcn I was astrologer who wagpractisingnear my residence. What struck me most was his admirable analysis of tbe fourth housein my horoscope, according to Jaimini, supported by eloquentquotationsfrom thc SUTRAS. He gave me to understandthen that the 3rd and 4th Adhyayas had beenlost and that they were not to bc found either in print or in manuscriptform anywhere. By about 1936an advocate friend of mine prescnted me with a copy of Jeimini Sutrasin Kannada script which also contained the original sutras of the 3rd and 4th Adbyayas. Tbe Kerala astrologerwas kind enough to interpret the 3rd and 4th Adbyayasfor 4y benefitand I am gratefulto him for this belp. Subsequently shiftedhis officeand I lost he touch with him. Sincethen my interestin Jaimini began to grow and I gathered valuable information tbrough my discussions with Panditswbo usedto visit my grandfather late Prof. B. Suryanarain Rao. I havewith me a number of versionsof Jaimini in Devanagari, Kannadaand Telugu scripts-most of them containingNeelakanta's commentaries. And the present work which I have the pleasure to place before the public is mainty based upon my "STUDIES" educated done during the last fifteen years. Owing probably to the dearthof books dealingclearlywith the principles,and of

'lv

scholarswho have specialised this particular branch of in astrological knowledge, Jaimini'smctbodshave not been popular. Consequently is not possibleto say with what it degreeof success principlesgivenby Jaimini could be the appliedto practical horoscopes. But there is no doubt whatsoever that when once the tecbnique prediction as of given by Jaimini has been clearly grasped, considerable rccuracy could be aimedat. In these.STUDIES I have merely endeavoured to make availablein compactand simple form the lcading facts or concepts Jaimini'sprinciples. Certainaspects of of Jalmini such as Dasas, Ayurdaya, etc., whichhave hitherto remained obscure,have been dealt with exbaustively and their slgnificance shown. I do not ctaim originality. But I claim to be the first in India to have given an expositionof Jaimini in English with suitable illustrations. It shouldbe pointcd out in conclusion tbat if this work were to stimulatea more detailedstudy of Jaimini, my labourswill have beenamply rewarded.

G.Preface to the Fifth Edition It is with great pleasure that I present herewith the fifth editionof my stuotes IN JAIMINI ASTROLOGY. In fact as early as 1944. Jaimini has certain specialfeatures especiallybearing on longevity and Dasa interpretation furnistring fresh materialfor the research-minded. RAMAN . Ananthram for having brought out this edition attractively. The informationgiven in this book has beenbased on all the four chaptersof the SUTRAS aod has becn tested by me on several horoscopes. K. I hope that astrological savantswill welcomcthis new edition as they have welcomed my other books. I am thankful to Mr. The fourth edition went out of print a coupleof yearsago and the bringingout of tbe fifrh edition had to be dehyed due to my other preoccupations.I had made predictions based on Jaimini on the horoscopes Hitler and Mussoliniwhich were of remarkably fulfilled. all Bangalore 29-l t-1986 B. even before I brought out the first edition. This edition has beenrevisedand typographical and othererrorsbavebceneliminated. V.

Whilst Parasara's in scbemc Dasas of is almostentirelybascdupon thc planctsand thcir dispositionsin certainconstellationr, Jaimini'sDasasinvariably refer to Rasis. In calculatingthc Dasas of Jaimini one is likely to gct confused, owing to thc mcthodsof counting onc hasto eniployed arriveat Dasasand Bhukti periods. to A littlc oversightmay upsetthe whole schemc of a particular Dasa and lcadthe studcntinto erroneous deductions.

As most readerswoutd perhaps be aware, wbilst Parasara mentionsa variety of Dasas, the pride of placeis invariably givento Vimshottariand experiencewarrants this. My grandfather late Prof. B. Suryanarain Rao used to tell me that Chara Dasa and Thrikona Dasa could be applied to all horoscopesand that all important human cvents could be timed with eufficientaccuracywith the aid of Navamsa Dasa, while for longevity purposes,his choice was Chara Dasa or Niryana Shula Dasa. Siuce Astrology is a. practical science,dogmaticassertions,as to the suitabilityof this or tbat sY.stem Dasa, just bccause is a favouriteof of it an eminentscholarare uncalled for. The choicemust be left to the discretionof the intelligentreadi:r wbo should be guidednot only by his oln experiencebut by that of scholars u,hohavemadc a life-longstudy of the subject. I am personally inclincdto favour both Chara and Sthira Dasas. This conclusion of course, based upon my is, own meagre studies. I do not therefore propose to detail all the Dasas mentioned abovein the coursc of this book. I shall deal with Chara Dasaexhaustively and make brief references to Thrikona Dasa, Sthira Dasa, Rasi Dasa, Brahma Dasa, Varnada Dasa and NiryanaShulaDasas. 75. Charal)asa This particular systemappearsto be a favourite with the Sage. Rasishavebeendividcdin to two groups, riz., Vishamapada(odd group) and Samapada (even group) for purporesof reckoningthc order of succession Dasa of and countingthc Dasa ycars.

For purposes of clarity, we shall usc the terms Savyagroup and Apasavya group to denotethe signsmentionedin articles76 and77 respcctively 78. The Order of Dasas When thc gth housefrom Lagna refcrs to a sign in the Savyagroup, the order of Dasa succession would be direct or clockwise,the first Dasa starting from Lagna Rasi. When the 9th from Lagna refers to a sign in the group, the order of Dasain succession Apasavya worrld direction,the first Dasa be the reverseor anti-clockwise beingthat of Lagna Rasi. Suppose for exampletwo cases where(a) Mesha and (6) Kataka are Lagnas. In the first case, the 9th housefrom Lagna, vz., Sagittariusrefersto Savyagroup. The first and succeeding Dasas would bc in the order of Mesha, Vrishabba, etc. In the second case, 9th house from Lagna (Karkataka) is Pisces, the belonging Apasavyagroup. The first and succeeding to Dasas would be in the order of Kataka, Mirhuna, Vrishabha, etc. 79.
