Mission of Sri Jagannath Center :
The Sri Jagannath Center (SJC) was established in 1998 with the objective of teaching Vedic Astrology in the ancient, time-honored tradition of Maharishi Parasara, Jaimini and other sages of yore. The tradition traces its lineage to Mahapurush Achyuta Dasa, the disciple of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Vedic Astrology will be taught by a panel of Jyotish Gurus in the traditional Jyotish parampara of Jagannath, Puri. The highest standards of integrity would be infused through the strict discipline of yogic practices in the Vedic religion including training in Vedic remedial measures. Meditation including dhyana (meditation techniques to cleanse the mind), dharana (concentration techniques to increase intelligence and use of intuition), pranayama (yogic breathing methods to increase life force) etc. are taught to ensure spiritual discipline while the classes on the Srimad Bhagavad-Gita and Sanskrit ensures a balanced spiritual growth with the knowledge of Vedic Astrology.
Dasa Pravesh Chakra is drawn for the moment a dasa begins. As usual we are left with many questions and problems like what happens if the time is slightly wrong or if the ayanamsa is not right. Hence, we are having many dilemmas to handle the vexed ayanamsa issue will never allow the use of D asa Pravesh Chakra for Vimsottari and Udu dasa or Kala Chakra Dasa. The moot point is that DPC is not only for Narayana dasa. It is a peculiar dasa system by itself. This is justified by the fact that we construct a chart for the beginning of a dasa and predict all that will happen using it. Sometime, we also don't need the main dasa antar , or pratyantar or smaller periods.
This is used with the Sudarshana chakra where each dasa is for one year. Anyone who studies the month’s names shall realize this. Look for the PANCHANGA. the DPC is nothing but a Tajik chart when we talk of Narayana Dasa. which are very strange in their nomenclature. The Tajik system was introduced by Neelakantha. then the next DPC is either for the Tajik chart or TP Chart. what is the difference between the dasa pravesh charka and the anuual horoscope/ annual solar return chart/ surya pravesh charka. Now the question is “Can we use Tajik rules for the DPC such as Ithasala yoga etc?” Although the dasa pravesh charka is similar to the Tajak surya pravesh charka. when the dasa duration is one year. Varamihira’s point was that. Now. Thus what people call as Tajik is nothing new or different. So.Organ. However. The Sun rules Rasi and all Rasi Dasa generally need the DPC. as the dasa is similar for all and the difference is seen ONLY from DPC. Amanta. India used to be a Full Moon calendar. In Rasi dasa. we should not mix things in such a way that we can use anything to explain anything. Why should we need Chaturthamsa or Dasamsa! Interpretation of Dasa Pravesh Chakra Panchanga in DPC Now when you draw a DPC.Dasa Pravesh Chakra Dasa Pravesh Chakra (DPC) vs. For this purpose we use DASA as the turning points of life occur when the DASA changes. the charts of annual solar return) to make life prediction s. Anga. SHOOLA and other such CRUCIAL dasa. Thus on ly divisions we require are the shastamsa or trimsamsa. Divisions in DPC The point with the DPC was that when it is used with a particular dasa. then there would be no need to draw 120 SPC (Surya Pravesh Chakras. The dasa pravesh charka of Sudarshana dasa is infact same as the Varsha Pravesh charka. an exponent of the Yavana School. where the DPC works the best is naisargika dasa. Now the point it that what we call a DPC is nothing but an annual chart called Surya Pravesh or the Sun's return. It was so obvious that no authority felt it worth the trouble to specifically mention its importance in making annual predictions. except for those Yogas. Here by DPC we mean SPC for the Dasa. CHARA. Suklanta vs. Panchanga means Pancha –Five. illustrated by the Tajik school of thought and what is called as Muntha in Tajik is the dasa sign running at that time. To illustrate this. then we are concerned about the health and death. If we could identify the years which are the turning points of life. the annual Solar return chart which was a VERY PAINFUL SYSTEM (imagine calculating 120 charts for a life time with 16 divisions and all that!) was done away with and the DPC came into the picture. what happens if the Narayana dasa is for 12 years? This is where we shall have serious doubt about the authenticity of the Tajik system as being Jyotish itself. the rules of Tajik are applicable to dasa pravesh chart. new dasa starts with Sun’s entry to its natal longitude. except Udu dasa. The DPC which is so clearly stated in all standard texts. When we are using DPC with Shoola dasa. used to be purely Vedic system using traditional Jyotish tools. Surya Pravesh Chakra (SPC) We shall see now. hence dasa pravesh chakra becomes the Solar return chart at the commencement of the Dasa. SPCs have relevance only with NARAYANA. Thus. some divisions became more relevant and all Divisional charts were not necessary. Another very crucial dasa system. Now what happens when we draw another chart for the solar or lunar entry after a year? Let us take a situation where the first dasa is for one year. The change in calendar is one such major problem in India. let’s see this. They are as follows: Vara – Agni Tithi – Jala Yoga – Akasa Karana – Prithvi 2 . to which Varahamihira was squarely opposed. Each of these angas is ruled by one Tattva and hence there is one to one mapping of the Organs and the Tattvas.
if the Vara is very evil and the DPC Lagna is in Kendra to Natal Lagna. Now we see which planet rules Paksha and what element do that planet rule? Venus rules the paksha and Venus rules Jala Tattwa. 8. That is why they are dusthana. the Lagna becomes the area where the intelligence gets focused and this is to be seen w.t. low mental strength.r. What happens if the Moon is in a Kendra/ Trikona from DPC Lagna? This is a positive indication that the native has his mind in tune with the affairs of the world. Moon is the Mana of the Kala Purusha. but the mental plane is very disturbed like a king fighting a battle. Now this direction is also lorded by Kubera the God of wealth. what happens? Obviously there is a lot of mental tension. Mind will be in phase with Dhi Shakt i or the Intelligence. In normal parlance what we call the heart is in tune with the brain. Remember Shakespeare . what’s to be inferred? Health is bad.Agni Tattwa The Vara Lord of the DPC plays a crucial role like the governor of the Body. if the Lord of the Tithi is ill placed. 9 Sun 2. we see that the Moon is in the North direction. how the different angas of the panchanga affect us. like the Moon who rules the Jala Tattwa.e. as they are very vital in understanding. It signifies the strength. natal chart only. Now when we Study the Kalachakra carefully. Thus. generally the health will be bad and the native will feel lack of energy. and Kubera rules 3 . gives sustenance in this world. What happens if the Moon is in Kendra/ Trikona from the planet or sign whose dasa has begun. and is yet is a bad place from DPC Lagna? Now you see Moon indicates the tides of the world affairs. i.there is a tide in the affairs of men which taken on the ebb leads to fortune and missed and the whole journey of life is a waste. lorded by Moon) would indicate that fame and name is an important aspect during this time. Tithi (Jala Tattwa) It shows the elements which will pay an important role during the Dasa. 6. 15 (Purnima) Saturn 8. 4. name and fame. afflicted etc.Dasa Pravesh Chakra Nakshatra – Vayu Vara . if the Vara Lord is weak and afflicted. 2. Fame is not hampered. Now. the Dhi and this can be a good or bad place for the Dhi to focus during the period of the dasa. That’s why it shows finance and prosperity or the lack thereof as Kubera is the lord of the direction ruled by Moon. The native may be enjoying Rajayoga in the physical plane. 14 Venus 7. 12 Merc 5. Like fire of Mars gives strength what will the water give? Water gives sustenance. besides low sexual activity etc depending on age etc. we mean houses 6. The tithis and their rulers as follows: Sl.

When we talk of Tithi we shall realize that they are based on paksha. coming back to the Lagna. This is because. what happens if the DPC Lagna is in a dusthana from natal Lagna? This usually becomes a bad year and forebodes misfortune. Troubles or blessings can follow. but the general well being like fortune etc is there. and Saturn causes obstacles. 1. We must stick to the Tattwa to find the impact of the different elements of the Panchanga. V ara is ruled by Mars and Mars rules strength. 8 & 12 only for which the KAARAKA is SATURN.
Now lets see the significance of placement of Moon relative to Lagna of DPC and Dasa R asi/ Graha. the Dwara is Cancer and the Bahya is Libra (four signs from Cancer). makes us slaves. out of which 7 are movable and 4 are fixed. 4. If the Paka Rasi is Kendra or Trikona from Lagna and if the Bhoga Rasi is in a Kendra or Trikona from Arudha Lagna. Kimstughna: 1st half of Shukla Pratipad These movable Karanas repeat in regular order starting from the second half of Shukla Pratipad to the first half of the Krishna Chaturdasi. eh! Rather. Pathetic. Thus a lunar month which consists of thirty tithis.Prthvi Tattva Karana is half of a Tithi.99% of human beings in this world. The dasa sign itself is the Dwara (door) and the Bahya is the sign obtained by counting as many signs. 5. Karana is seen for overall success during the dasa period. 10. 2. Kubera rules trade. auspicious results obtain. he does not prefer a cart and likes to sit on the head. One more point. 11. have 60 Karanas. Naga: 2nd half of Amavasya. Karana Bava Balava Kaulava Taitila Gara Vanija Vishti Shakuni Chatuspada Naga Kimstughna Lord Surya Chandra Mangal Budh Brhaspati Shukra Shani Brahma (Lagna Lord) Vishnu (4th Lord) Mahesh (7th Lord) Aditya (10th Lord) Type Movable Karanas Fixed Karanas The fixed Karanas occur only once in a lunar month. They are as follows: Shakuni: 2nd half of Krishna Chaturdasi. It’s Terrible to think that we are just another Vaahana. What is Kubera’s Vehicle? It is “Human Being”. Thus. 8. Chatuspada: 1st half of Amavasya. The Bahya is the rasi placed as many rasis from the dwara as the dwara is from Lagna. The same principle is used to determine the Deha and Jeeva. Deha is judged for health whereas the Jeeva is judged for happiness and prosperity. Tathasthavitham Bahyam. 3. The Maharishis were right. The movable Karanas excluding the Vishti Karana is auspicious and show success. (Jaimini Sutra) Symbolically the Dwara Rasi is the doorway through which the soul is to leave the body and the Bahya Rasi is the ‘outside world’ to which it departs initially. 7. Door is where the dasa rasi /planet is. (Narayana Dasa by Pt. They are: Serial 1. 6. from Dwara as it has gained from the Lagna. There are altogether 11 karanas.Dasa Pravesh Chakra wealth. 9. unless the lord is adversely afflicted in the DPC chart. Sanjay Rath) The sign occupied by the lord of dasa Rasi is the Paka and the Arudha of the dasa rasi is the Bhoga (fruit). if Aries ascendants and dasa is of the fourth signs Cancer. the native may n ot benefit as much if the same Moon is not well placed from the DPC Lagna. The Moon in K/T to Dasa Rasi/graha is very good as this shows that the dasa shall be beneficial. Wealth comes with trade and all HUMAN activity. Dwara/ Bahya dasasrayo dwaram. He rides as money drives us. (Jaimini Sutra) Karana . Thus the placement of the 4 . but this is true for 99. however.

Yoga is for general well-being and that is why the calculation of yoga begins from Cancer where Jupiter gets exalted. Thus this is the place where the light of the luminaries fall. how we shall form relationships with others and our interaction with them. Yoga – Akash Tattva Yoga is the opposite of Tithi. It is the blessings of God coming through the luminaries.e. Lets take the DPC of Ge Narayana dasa from 92 to 2002 in the following chart.
