To The Editor, Saptarishis Astrology www.saptarishiastrology.

com Sir, We enclose herewith a detailed article on Jaimini's Upapada for publication, if that meets your standards. Upapada Sutras by Shri. Jaimini are drafted for male nativities. Modern day females have right to select /reject/divorce their husbands on various grounds of disharmony, physical, mental or sexual disabilities. Looking into the needs of modern times, we were desperate that Upadesha Sutras become applicable to female charts also. After years of experimentation we discovered “Agra” (A¢) sign, for finding Upapada for female charts. Thus

“%ppd< pd< ipÇnucrat!“, of male natives becomes “%ppd< pd< ipÇ¢at!.“ for females. With this modification, now
Upapada Sutras become applicable with full force to charts of both sexes. We do not have facility of computers to check the accuracy of charts used in the article. We entirely depend on charts available in books and journals. Kindly check them, if you so desire. Sincerely yours.

(Jagdish Raj Ratra) A-2, Rishi Nagar, Delhi 110 034. (India)

Word of Appreciation
Jaimini Sutras have always been enshrouded in mystery, for long due to the very nature of sutras, which by their very nature are very brief. Upapada (%ppd) or Gaunapada (gaE[pd) is one such factor that has always been subject to multiplicity of opinion amongst scholars. The mystery here is about what the sage meant when he talked of pitranucaraat (ipÇnucrat! ). Some scholars opine that it is the 12th bhava while some say that since the 2nd bhava rises after the Lagna bhava on the horizon one should treat the 2nd bhava as the Gauna bhava

(gaE[Éav), whose pada can be called the upapada. Then some opine that for odd rasis rising as lagna one should
treat the 2nd as the Gauna bhava (gaE[Éav) and for even rasis the 12th should be considered the Gauna bhava

(gaE[Éav), whose pada shall be called upapada. There are some scholars who claim that for female this should be
reversed as is done in case of Putra bhava (puÇÉav) for Stree jataka (female astrology). Some scholars have another explanation for the word pitranucaraat (ipÇnucrat! ). They say that the word Pitra (ipÇ) is not to be interpreted by “katapayaadi” (kqpyadI) decryption method but to be taken to indicate the bhava of Pita that is father and hence it is the Gauna bhava (gaE[Éav) of the 9th bhava which is to be taken as the bhava whose pada shall lead to Upapada. Each of these arguments has its own distinct logic. It is then no wonder that most astrologers keep away from the Jaimini sutras as these complexities are too much for them. Jagdish Raj Ratra has taken great pains to unravel this aspect of Jaimini sutras and given a new direction to the whole method of calculation of upapada and shown here how the principles of sage Jaimini can be applied with the help of numerous charts. We hope that this article will help give a new insight into the application of Jaimini principles, to our learned readers and encourage them to carry out more research in this, least understood and most talked about, branch of Vedic astrology.
