1-4. Maitreya said: O Venerable Sage! You have described many kinds of effects, relating to the
Grahas and Bhavas, after incorporating the views of many sages and Acharyas, but it is not
possible to say with certainty, if a particular effect is quite correct, after considering the
contradictions in the effects by the movements of the various Grahas. As because of sinful
deeds, committed by people in Kaliyuga, their minds have become blunt, be kind enough to
describe a method, which would enable even the shallow minded persons to ascertain their
happiness and sorrows and determine their longevity on the basis of the positions of the Grahas
in transit.

5-6. The sage replied: O Brahmin! You have put a very intelligent question. I will now describe the
Shastra for the benefit of all, the Shastra, in which there will be no contradictions in judging the
effects of happiness and sorrows and for determination of the longevity. You now listen to me
carefully.

7-11. If the 12 Bhavas, including Lagn, are occupied by, or aspected by benefic Grahas, they yield
auspicious results, according to their characteristics, but this happens, where the Grahas
concerned are in their exaltation Räçi, own Räçi, or posited in a benefic Bhava. There will be
no good effects, if such Grahas are in depression, or posited in an inauspicious Bhava. Similarly

127

the Bhavas, associated with, or aspected by malefics in depression, or posited in malefic
Bhavas, yield adverse results, according to their characteristics. If such Grahas be in their
exaltation Räçi, the effects will not be adverse. This is how the general effects have been
described by the Daivajnas. I have only repeated those effects. The main purposes of this
Jyotish Shastra are to determine the longevity and joys and sorrows of the people, but because
the movements of the Grahas are so subtle, even sages, like Vashista and Brihaspati, have not
been able to be quite definite in this respect. Then how can a common man, particularly in
Kaliyuga, do so.
12. There are two divisions, or parts of the Jyotish Shastra, namely general and particular. I have
already dealt with the general part. I now come to the other part, which deals with this subject
in particular.
13-15. As the effects of the twelve Bhavas are judged from Lagn and Candr, effects of the twelve
Bhavas and the various Grahas are judged in the same manner. Therefore the inauspicious
places from the seven Grahas, named, as Karan, beginning from Sürya and Lagn (total 8),
should be marked by dots (Bindus) and auspicious places, named, as Sthan, by small vertical
lines (Rekhas) and on the basis of their assessment should the judgment of the horoscope and
predictions be made.
Notes. The above arrangement is known, as AshtakaVarg. The meaning of AshtakaVarg is literally
the group of eight things. In other words it is the combination of the good and bad positions of
a Grah with reference to the seven Grahas and Lagn. So it is the combination of the benefic
and malefic marks (the Rekhas and the Bindus) in a planets chart with reference to the position
of the eight Grahas (here Lagn is to be treated, as a Grah).
16. Five Grahas in 1st

, 2nd

, 8th

, 3rd

and the 12th

Bhavas from Sürya are Karanprad (dot significators).

Similarly four Grahas in the 7th

and 4th

, three Grahas in the 6th

and 9th

, six Grahas in the 5th

, 2

Grahas in the 10th

and one Grah in the 11th

are dot significators.

17-19. Thus Lagn, Candr, Guru, Çukr and Budh in the 1st

, 2nd

and 8th

from Sürya; Sürya, Maìgal,

Çani, Candr and Guru in the 12th

; Budh, Candr, Çukr, Guru in the 4th

; Lagn, Candr, Çukr in the

9th

; Sürya, Çani and Maìgal in the 6th

; Lagn, Budh, Guru and Candr in the 7th

; Çukr in the 11th
;

Sürya, Çani, Çukr, Guru and Maìgal in the 3rd

; Guru and Çukr in the 10th

; Sürya, Çani, Candr,

Lagn Maìgal and Çukr in the 5th

are Karanprad, or dot indicators.

20-22. In Candrs AshtakaVarg 6 Grahas in the 9th

and the 2nd

, 8th

and the 1st
,

one Grah in the 10th

, 3 Grahas in the 6th

and the 7th

and 1st

, eight

in the 12th

are Karanprad. Thus Lagn, Sürya, Maìgal, Çani and Çukr, these five in the 1st

; Lagn,

Budh, Sürya, Candr, Çani and Çukr, these 6 in the 2nd

; Guru in the 3rd

; Maìgal, Lagn, Çani, Çukr and Candr, these five in the 8th

; Lagn, Sürya,

Maìgal, Çani, Budh and Guru, these 6 in the 9th

; Çani only in the 10th

; none in the 11th

; all the

eight in the 12th

from their own places are Karanprad. These Grahas in the other Bhavas are

Rekhaprad (line significators).
23-27. In the AshtakaVarg of Maìgal 6 Grahas in the 12th

, 5 Grahas in the 1st

and 8th

, 4 Grahas in the 3rd

, 3 Grahas in the

10th

and 2 Grahas in the 6th

are Karanprad. In the 11th

no Grah is Karanprad. In other words all

the Grahas in the 11th

from their own places are Rekhaprad. Thus Sürya, Candr, Budh, Guru

and Çukr, these five in the 1st

; Lagn, Sürya, Candr, Budh, Guru and Çani, these 6 in the 2nd
;

Çukr, Maìgal, Guru and Çani, these 4 in the 3rd

70-72. To identify the auspicious and inauspicious Bhavas in the AshtakaVarg a chart should be
prepared with 14 horizontal lines and ten vertical lines. The form of the chart so prepared will
consist of 117 apartments. In this chart in the first line incorporates the names of the seven
Grahas and Lagn. In the first column write the numbers of all the 12 Bhavas. After this mark
dots under the Grah and against the Karanprad Bhavas. By doing so the Karanprad Bhavas of
all the 8 Grahas, including Lagn, will become known clearly and whenever the AshtakaVarg
Grah will pass in transit the dot-marked Bhavas, he will yield unfavourable results. In his
transit to other Bhavas he would give favourable effects.The following table shows the dots in
the AshtakaVarg of Sürya.
