Lost in wilderness, shrouded in the ambiguity of aphorism and interpreted in arbitrary fashion by astrologers with genuine to fraudulent claims, Jaimini astrology will continue to baffle astrologers for many more decades. What then should be the approach of an astrologer in genuine search of working and workable Jaimini methods tormented me, as it must have many astrologers. I therefore evolved a seven step approach.

Each astrologer wanting to make Jaimini astrology his predictive tool must first read whatever books are available, most of them in translations. My Findings: Karakas The first problem was to decide when to use seven karakas and when eight. It was not a ticklish problem at all as if all planets are calculated upto seconds, there never was a clash between two planets contesting for the position of a karaka. Try it and see if I am right. I solved this problem easily. Meaning of Karakas: My Original Research I studied whatever was available on Jaimini and collected a huge library and found that no one, even the most respected Krishna Mishra or Neelakantha even hinted at how these Karakas were to be used. It was like someone telling me that he lived in Bombay but never gave his address. It shocked me totally and sometimes I felt that either it was hidden or these great and famous commentators never understood their uses. Then, B.Suryanarain Rao, B.V.Raman, P.S.Sastry or Iranganti Rancharya who wrote articles in the Astrological Magazine never even pointed out or produced any research to show how these karakas were to be used. I took a bold decision to do it myself, a task which had never been done before by anyone. Rule of harmony Then as in law, so in astrology follow the principle of harmony in the interpretation of karakas. I reasoned out myself and came with a workable method which has turned to be a very effective tool for prediction. I have shown it through various examples for twenty six years now in 2010 and will show many more in this article. Atmakaraka In Parashara you have the first house and its lord for self so that should be the Atmakaraka a planet with the highest degrees.

In Parashara you have the third house and its lord for siblings etc so that should be the Bhatrikaraka. So that should be a planet with the third highest degrees. In Parashara you have the fourth house and its lord for mother and home etc so that should be the Matrikaraka. So that should be a planet with the fourth highest degrees. In Parashara you have the fifth house for education, children, mantra etc. So the fifth karaka must be Putrakaraka. So that should be a planet with the fifth highest degrees. In Parashara you have the sixth house and its lord for enemies, diseases etc and so it should be the Gnathikaraka.So that should be a planet with the sixth highest degrees. In Parashara you have the seventh house and its lord for spouse etc and so it should be the Darakaka. So that should be a planet with the lowest degrees. What about Amatyakaraka then ? What about the second karaka then ? It is Amatyakaraka which means a courtier or an important man in the court of a king in the days of monarchy. So in our days it should mean an important man and by extension your own importance. Is it a hint about career I wondered and proceeded with this assumption with my research and got amazing results as I will show. What about a karaka for father? The problem is easily solved if you use Bhatrikaraka and Sun for father and Bhatrikaraka and Mars for siblings as has been as shown in some books on Jaimini. Here we must remember that sthirakarakas must always be considered in Jaimini astrology. Abbreviations The abbreviations I used then were AK, AmK, BK, MK.PK.GK. and DK. I then combined sthirakakas like Sun for father, Moon for mother etc. Padas For padas I decided not to use any exception and got excellent results which I will show partially in this article or a later article.

Second step
Whatever the translators say must never be accepted blindly. Remember that most of the translators are Sanskrit scholars but not distinguished astrologers or successful predictors. We are grateful to them for making available many manuscripts but we must become cautious when it comes to their what I call “ shloka mauling and sutra chopping” boast. My Finding Manoj Pathak a teacher of astrology in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, New Delhi, decided to do a research on Parashara’s Chakra dasha and found that out of eight different translations of available Parashara texts, no astrologer knew how to compute it. The translation they gave never gave any accurate results. He has solved the problem amazingly now. He and his students have been giving brilliant readings based on Chakra dasha. Soon they are going to come out with an amazing book.

Through experience you will know when and how to ignore these translators or even commentators (though there is none really who can be called a commentator of these books) and then getting enmeshed in a confusion, seek a way out of it with lot of struggle if you persist with your research.

Third step
Test whatever has been understood on the well known events of your own life on your chart and on those of your family members or friends whose life events are known to you with correct events and correct dates. My Finding The results I got were amazing and brilliant and it is the experience of my students also.

Fourth step
Now try it on the well known horoscopes of famous people and test the validity of your understanding on the horoscopes of yours and of your relation and friends which you have done earlier. My Finding It is what I am going to show in this article.

Fifth step
Do not bring in fanciful theories which are not mentioned in any translation of Jaimini like the CHAR KARAKA SUBSTITUTION which is a fanciful, if also fraudulent, theory being circulated now. My Finding Reject totally what is not given either in Jaimini sutras or in the Jaimini portion in Parashara text otherwise you will walk into a cave where you will suffer astrological suffocation.

Sixth step
Wherever your testing necessitates it, modify with reasons the translation of Jaimini texts remembering that most of these translators were and are only Sanskrit scholars and not sucessful predictors because of which they may have misinterpreted or even wrongly translated some shlokas and sutras. My Finding It is a risk you take but not rashly or with fraudulent claim that you have learnt it from some secret tradition which can be dubious and fraudulent. Claiming to be belonging to a secret tradition is marketing. You must prove it and replicate it over a period of many years as I have done before publishing my research. Your aim must be to contribute something for understanding the changed and changing times through astrology and reject or modify whatever has agricultural and pastoral connotation when these books of astrology were written.

Seventh step

In those cases where I had accurate horoscopes. the famous commentators on Jaimini sutras. Then I had two postings in Calcutta (1967 to 1969 and again from 1975 to 1978 when again I met many Bengalis who had lost their birth horoscopes when they were fleeing from what then was East Pakistan. I met many Punjabis and Haryanvis and Delhites who were either refugees who had lost their horoscopes while fleeing from West Pakistan at the time of the partition of India in 1947 or had Arya Samaj background and never got their horoscopes prepared. I was always short of time and I needed accurate Vimshottari dasha after correcting the birth time which is wrong in ninety percent times. children and death. without fixing the degrees of the lagna. During my service career I was posted in Shillong (1962-63) when I met many Bengalis who had lost their birth horoscopes when they were fleeing from what then was East Pakistan. keep in mind that their own understanding or interpretation may be incomplete or even wrong. I could give them helpful predictions on the basis of Chara dasha and seven. In these cases I invariably used divisional charts most of which. I solved my problem by heavily relying on Chara dasha and Karakas and double checked it with Vimshottari dasha without using vargas in most cases and gave good predictions though some went wrong awfully also. a task which had never been done before by anyone. When they felt the need to have astrological readings. Keeping this background in the mind follow my discussion of the horoscopes under ECMCD or education. My Finding I will refer to it later and not in this article. But I had to use Chara dasha and many other dashas of Jaimini out of sheer necessity and demand. career. I used both dashas and even some conditional dashas on which I did lot of research but have left it to my colleagues in the Astrology Faculty of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan.Without losing respect for Krishna Mishra or Neelakantha. marriage. MY AIMS IN DOING RESEARCH IN JAIMINI CHARA DASHA I must explain that I had been giving excellent predictions through Vimshottari dasha and vargas which late Shehadri mentioned in his books but which I popularised on a large scale. After laying the seven step approach let me explain how I proceeded in interpreting Jaimini astrology within my own limitations. 2. some of them came to me and I found out that if I fixed their lagnas properly on the basis of the scanty information they provided. The reasons are: 1. 3. I took a bold decision to do it myself.(leaving some) I have revealed in my books. . and only seven karakas. I also found that being a government officer with ten to five office hours. From 1978 till my retirement in 1990.

north Indian astrologers put Karakamsha in the birth horoscope and judge the results. the former prime minister of India. he will become a dealer in medicines etc. so the maximum dasha period can be of twelve years only. sudden events and even tragedies. 1989 edition in Hindi) Anyone in the world with Moon and Venus in the same degrees as Atmakaraka and Amatyakaraka in the birth horoscope will also have them in navamsha and they all will become dealers in medicines. 3) Mark the putrakaraka (PK) 4) Mark the darakaraka and also the darakaraka navamsha in the birth horoscope. Mishra Jaimini Sutram of Ranjan Publications. See a sutra for example: Shukrendo Shukradrishe rasavadi p 49. If you judge it from Karakamsha in lagna it may give a different meaning and lot of flexibility is available for interpretation. I will show how following my method. for the Dhanu period the period will be zero which appears absurd to me as no rashi can have zero period. 5) Mark the upapada in the birth horoscope. 2) If Jupiter is at two degrees in Makara. Additionally. timing of events becomes accurate. If in a horoscope there is a zero year for it. I and my students have followed this method and have given many successful predictions with timing becoming accurate. NOTE: I use the Karakamsha lagna in the birth horoscope for many good reasons which are sound. It is the tradition followed in many parts of northern India and gives excellent results. (DKN) and note the dual use I make of it for marriage and also death. 2) Mark the Karakamsha (KL) alongwith the Atmakaraka also in the lagna. some important events cannot be seen at all is my experience. Computing the Chara dasha periods In calculating the periods I neither add one extra year for exalted planet nor deduct one extra for debilitated period for the following reasons: 1) Since there are only twelve rashis.by adding one year to full twelve year period it will become thirteen. Special Point . (Suresh Ch. Dhanu periods are known for rise and fall. If Mercury is at two degrees in Kanya. But in using Chara dasha that is not a handicap.Follow my line of reasoning by preparing charts in which all birth horososcopes are: 1) Marked with karakas. If all karakas are used in navamsha it is called Swamsha. meaning that if Venus is in Karakamsha lagna and is aspected by Moon. I will explain it. The illustrative horoscopes being used here are of those famous persons who life events are historically documented and the horoscopes used have correct lagnas though the degrees of the lagna may be debatable. It is why traditionally. 3) In timing events in horoscopes which have exalted and debilitated planets as in the case of Queen Elizabeth II and Chandrasekhar. If you blend the results from Karakamsha in lagna and Karakamsha in Swamsha (meaning all karakas put in navamsha as south Indian astrologers do) you get better results.

I have admitted in writing my failed predictions giving reasons. one begins to give a false impression of being a seer. Do not stop here but give predictions only on this basis for some time to test the soundness of your discovery.without using Karakas is like saying that you do Parashari without using seven grahas (leaving out Rahu and Ketu). these days.!!!

It will be shown in the cases of Sachin Tendulkar and Benazir Bhutto in this article. and get or collect a feedback to be convinced that you are working with correct or corrected horoscopes.

It is. a strenuous exercise. if you like. 1924 or 1925 and “prove” a point or a research. preposterous to show the horoscope of Atal Behari Vajpai with Tula lagna for different years. if such details are available. One lifetime is not sufficient to grasp it. if your verification was faulty. Step seven :When you read articles of some writers you begin to pick and choose easily. Choose bio-facts as I call it. for example. admit it honestly. as far as I know. Let astrologers be not liars. Step four: Always ignore ponga pandits who claim to know the meaning of Sanskrit shloka or sutra and. The sample size for testing must be at least twenty five.

In making predictions about their coming end I used the more obvious planetary combinations which I have taught but never referred to the subtle and secret factors. Step nine: Always use. when you are doing the analysis of a horoscope. Step ten: Re-check what you have written. some events relating to parents. unless some indisputable facts are verified stage by stage. This has been always a fault with many including me because while writing thoughts that race in the mind lead the writer into unconscious errors which he fails to correct. In the case of Rajiv Gandhi. of course. That is the line I have strictly followed in my books and articles. Step eight: Similarly. you may show and use one dasha only for brevity and clarity. Step twelve What to hide and what to reveal is a tough task for even an experienced writer of astrology books. You will realize soon that in the world of astrology there are many malicious fellows. It now is a forgotten dream amidst so many unscrupulous astrologers. more than one dasha though while writing. with examples. . Every book on lesser known and used dashas or lesser used dasha which has come out of the pen of BVB teachers of Delhi follows this line strictly.vehement dishonesty. But first the controversy relating to the Karakamsha must be dealt with. Contributing something positive is not their primary aim. Step eleven: In doing a research on any dasha. I will use in this article. Do not waste your time reading them anymore. This keeps happening is my honest opinion. what I always regard as the clinching factor. the nature of education.

He wrote that Saturn in Karakamsha makes one famous in one’s own line. including mine and got results. Mars: Will prepare medical mixtures and will bear arms. with very good results) tested on many horoscopes. it caused more confusion which I have explained in my book on Mandook Dasha (which I do differently than other writers. a very keen researcher in Jaimini. If any of the planets is in the Karakamsha the results will be: Sun: Will be fond of public service and will be fond of political activities. I was told. I will explain in later. (Amitabh Bachchan and all people born on 14 Oct 2010 should be government servants or fond of political activities. All people born on 19 Oct 2010 will bear arms or in professions involving fire. I tested it on horoscopes with me and found that if I used the south Indian method.Karakamsha Let me first clarify why I use Karakamsha in the birth lagna as the north Indian astrologers do. A friend of mine has this combination in his horoscope and he worked in a bank. (All people born in the world on 1 September 2010 will have this combination. First let me explain why putting KL in the lagna appears logical to me. and not in the navamsha. I saw books on Jaimini by south Indian writers who put the Karakamsha (KL) in the navamsha while the north Indian astrologers prepared a full chart with KL in the center in the place of the lagna and put other planets as they are in the birth horoscopes. It does not solve our problem. will know the rules of sacrificial functions and will have good knowledge in Vedanta. a stop gap prime minister twice has this.)

Someone showed me an article of a writer who. Results of Karakamsha B.) Mercury: Will become a merchant. will have religious wisdom.) Saturn: Will be famous in his line of work. Yet some results as given in the book are reproduced here first to show the confusion that gets created as a result of a translation without illustration.) Moon and Venus: If the full Moon and Venus are in Karakamsha the person will command great wealth and all comforts.

SUPPRESSION OF BIRTH DATA 4 March 2010. Can we jump to such conclusions merely on the basis of the Atmakaraka and its navamsha position in the navamsha chart? It is obvious that it is a fallacious approach. All the people born in the world will be known for their work as they will become famous in their line. It should be clear that if the entire Navamsha of karakas are to be used for Karakamsha then: (a)Anyone who has Sun as the Atmakaraka will invariably have Sun in the Karakamsha also will become public servant and will be in political activities. There cannot be a group of people born all over the world who will become famous only because Saturn will be Atmakaraka and therefore will be in Karakamsha of all the people in the world born on 8 Sept 2009 at any time and in any lagna.a well know Jaimini aphorism. (b)Similarly those who have Venus as Atmakaraka will have great sexual virility till the age of one hundred years. But before read what I have written on my website ETERNAL INDIA 29 . Notes 1. The sheer absurdity of taking Karakamsha lagna so mechanically and herding all the people born with Saturn as Atmakaraka must be noticed and discussed by Jaimini scholars. Some astrologers use the Karakamsha in the birth horoscope and call it Karakamsha and use the entire navamsha of all Jaimini Karakas and call it Swamsha which appeals to reason. (c)All those who have the Saturn as the Atmakaraka will be famous in their own line of work. Now see some hotly debated horoscopes. If such is the case we can look at all horoscopes in which Sun is the Atmakaraka and draw a fast conclusion that such persons will be public servants and will be interested in political activities. 11:44 AM KN RAO . The north Indian style of Karakamsha Put the Karakamsha in Dhanu and retain the planets of 8 Sept 2009 as in the birth lagna and you get a different meaning which appeals to me. Why were people born at the same time as Indira Gandhi not famous? The reason is that a prediction cannot be based on an isolated factor. prasiddha karmajivi. Let me give an example. There is no hint given in any book available in the market to show how the Karakamsha and Swamsha are distinguishable and which one is to be used when for predictive purposes. Jaimini says Saturn in Karakamsha or in 2nd house from Karakamsha Lagna indicates the person will be known for his work. In an article later I will give scanned copies of Karakamsha prepared by north Indian astrologers. Cast the horoscope of people anywhere in the world of 8 Sept 2009 according to the Lahiri ayanamsha and see Saturn at twenty nine degrees and 51degrees.

Lal Bahadur Shastri Very early in my astrological career I came across a horoscope of Lal Bahadur Shastri with Moon in Kanya and Dhanu lagna with the date of birth not given by as many as three famous and established astrologers of India.
