Lecture on Badhaka delivered in the SJC West Coast conference, USA
Sometimes there is considerable obstruction to whatever we do and no good work is accomplished. The fate seems to be obstructed and in spite of constant prodding, the obstruction persists. Bädhaka means obstruction and this can take various forms from a simple irritant at times to terrible incurable diseases.
Räsi Bädhaka (Obstruction by Sign)
Every sign has a sign of obstruction called Bädhaka Räsi and its lord is called Bädhakesa<!--[if ! supportFootnotes]--><!--[endif]-->. This is given in Table A7-1. For example, if the Lagna is Gemini, then the Bädhaka sign is Sagittarius and its Lord Jupiter becomes the Bädhakesa. Table 1: Bädhaka Sign Räsi Aries Taurus Gemini Cancer Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Pisces Bädhaka Räsi Aquarius Capricorn Sagittarius Taurus Aries Pisces Leo Cancer Gemini Scorpio Libra Virgo Bädhakesa Rahu & Saturn Saturn Jupiter Venus Mars Jupiter Sun Moon Mercury Ketu & Mars Venus Mercury
The list of Bädhaka Räsi is very systematic and can easily be remembered. Thus, for Movable, Fixed & Dual Signs the sign of obstruction (Bädhaka) is the 11th, 9th, & 7th house respectively.
This brings the wrath of the deity signified by the Bädhakesa. Depending on the malefic<!--[if ! supportFootnotes]--><!--[endif]--> planet/ Upagraha<!--[if !supportFootnotes]--><!-[endif]--> involved.

Wrath of the Deity The wrath of the deity is to be judged based on various factors. the 12th house from the Ätmäkäraka is the place of the Ista Devatä and it is from the 12th house from the Bädhakesa that the past life history of maintenance of the deity is to be deciphered. If Mars: disputes /bad management of worship/ image/ temple etc. Instead based on the principle of Paraspara Karaka (i. the indications are that the worshipped image has been mutilated. Other views Harihara (Prasna Märga) cities two other theories for determination of the “houses of harm” or bädhaka räsi (table-2). can cause obstructions and activate the Bädhakesa and other evils. There is yet another view which states that planets in kendra to the bädhaka räsi shall also be bädhaka signs. the following can be inferred: 1. and if a Malefic planet is placed in the 12th house from the Bädhakesa. 3. If Saturn: Pollution /dirt on the image/ temple. doing each other’s job when the planets/signs are placed in mutual quadrants) the planets placed kendra to the bädhaka shall act as its cooperators and can instigate the bädhaka into tormenting the native.The 22nd Drekkana: Khära The lord of the 22nd Drekkana is the Khäresa and can cause Bädhaka effects i.e. If Gulika/ Rahu: Indicates a curse of the Serpent deity or a serpent having touched the image of the deity has made it very impure. This view is not acceptable to most astrologers. 2.

The native lost his mental balance following a fire incident (Jupiter’s ire is always indicated by fires and religious hatred). This anger symbolized by the nodes and Mars constitutes unbroken sarpa yoga (indicating that the native shall be entangled in poverty and health problems) and Pisaca bädhaka as well (Ketu in quadrants with Mars aspecting lagna).In this chart Jupiter is debilitated in both räsi and navämsa and is also retrograde indicating the wrath of the deva is likely to occur and if it does. The twelfth house from Jupiter is aspected by Mars indicating that an idol of the deity has been broken. The involvement of the fifth lord Saturn with this yoga indicates the blessings of fine children who will prosper. The lagna is Virgo (dual sign) and the seventh house (Pisces) is the bädhaka sign with Jupiter its lord. The magnitude of the anger should be judged in this manner based on the evil yoga formed by the evil planets aspecting the 12th house from the bädhakesa. he worked as an engineer in the government and took premature retirement when he could no longer work under the heavy dose of the medicine. He became raving mad and inspite of the best medical attention. Inspite of his mental health. he did not recover. it will be impossible to obtain relief due to the retrogression (ceshtä bala) of Jupiter. It was a fortunate turn of fate when a nice lady decided to marry him and bore him two sons. becoming the bädhakesa. Every dark cloud has a silver lining and here we find a fine dharmakarmädhipati yoga involving the lords of the ninth and tenth houses as well as the lagna and second houses. . The nodes also aspect Sagittarius (the 12th house from bädhakesa) by räsi drishti indicating that the terrible wrath of the deity. For thirty years his spouse has nursed him and cared for his children.
10 or 12 houses requires propitiation. 3. If Gulika is in quadrants instead of Rahu. then the curse is from superior or divine serpents. 8. 2. 7. Chart 2: Young brilliant astrologer . 4. It was not possible for him to do this as lunacy prevented him from any coherent effort in this direction. these remedial measures are compulsory. 6. 5. Rahu in first house: Sprinkling milk (Tarpana) over the abode of serpents or over an image of the Snake God (Nagaraja /Vasuki) in a temple. while the Moon associating with Rahu shows evil-minded serpents intent on causing disaster. Rahu in 6th. then these are inferior serpents. 6. Rahu in dual sign: dedicate a small serpent made of gold or copper (symbolic of the baby snakes killed) Rahu in movable sign: small eggs of gold or silver be offered (symbolic of the broken eggs of the snakes) Rahu in fixed sign: Plant trees (Symbolic of the replacement of the destroyed ant hills and abodes of the serpents). Rahu in seventh House: Dancing and devotional songs. If the Sun associates with Rahu. If Rahu is connected in any way with Bädhakesa. 8. The following remedies have been prescribed in the Prasna Marga and other traditional texts: 1. 7. Wrath of Sarpa Deva Rahu in 4. 10th or Bädhaka House: Sarpa Bali as per prescribed texts. If Jupiter associates with the Bädhakesa and is placed in a dusthäna<!--[if !supportFootnotes]--><!--[endif]-->and if Rahu is in a quadrant from Jupiter. 8th. Rahu in 4th House: Installation of image of Sarpa Devatä or dedicate a Chitra Kuta stone Rahu in 12th House: Music & singing.The deity indicated by Jupiter is Mahävishnu (Jagannätha) and remedy was reciting the Näräyana Kavaca and offering clothes and other gifts at a temple. then the serpents are beneficial and essentially intent in long term good.
Rahu is not in 4. trees or lands). The fact that the dwelling places were destroyed is seen from the presence of Mars in the 12th house . On the other hand. We infer that the native took over lands occupied by snakes by breaking their eggs (Rahu in movable signs) and dwelling places. Bädhakesa Moon does not conjoin Jupiter or Sun indicating that neither divine serpents nor good/beneficial serpents are involved. Affliction from the nodes can cause severe problems for astrologers and it is mandatory for Jyotisha to check sarpa dosa in their charts. Bädhakesa Moon is placed in the eleventh house indicating misappropriation of the deity’s wealth. we find that Rahu placed in bädhaka house is aspecting the Sun placed in lagna indicating that some superior serpents shall also help him due to some good karma of a past incarnation. Since Rahu is placed in the bädhaka house. 6. We also find the presence of a käla amrita yoga (sister of the terrible käla sarpa yoga) indicating a spiritual and good person who may have to see considerable suffering on account of the planets being in the grasp of the nodes. 7. In the chart lagna is Scorpio (fixed sign) and bädhaka house is the ninth house Cancer as per standard rules given earlier. 8.Generally astrologers should look for the affliction of nodes in their charts as both Rahu & Ketu give good knowledge of astrology when in trines to navämsa lagna indicating that these planets are being invoked when charts are being examined. Instead. the Moon is the bädhakesa and dispositor of Rahu (causes association with Moon) and shows evil-minded serpents intent on causing disaster. To determine the nature of the wealth we need to see the lagna and here we find the Sun placed indicating mula (grain. 10 or 12 houses. It also indicates Kunòalini yoga or spiritual awakening due to Sri Dakshinämurti or Sri Dattätreya. This may manifest in the form of learning subjects like astrology and the occult sciences. the remedial measures are compulsory.
the Moon (natural significator of mother) should be in the aforementioned Bädhaka sign to show the curse of Mother. Serve your parents if they are alive. Lord of the 22nd drekkana is Mercury and it is the lord of the sign bädhakesa is placed in. Sprinkle milk (abhiseka) on Nagaraja. Wrath of Parents The Bädhaka sign should be Aries/ Scorpio (indicating the anger/ fire of Mars) to show the presence of a curse. We find the Venus and Saturn in kendra to the Moon and these can indicate the sources that will instigate the trouble in the life of the native. Rahu is also the ätmakäraka indicating that the birth is due to these sins/wrath of the sarpa devatä. Remedial measures recommended - • • Donate nine (Rahu in 9th house) gold eggs at a Sivä linga and pray for forgiveness [one time]. Chart 3: Fathers ire . • • Donate some trees or land. Similarly. The Sun (natural significator of father) should be in this Bädhaka sign in Räsi or Navämsa to show the curse of father. Perform Shraddh or work for some elderly persons in the memory of your parents if they are dead. The Bädhakesa associated with Leo & with Mars/Saturn shows the anger/sorrow of the father or some paternal elder respectively. Similarly. the 6th lord in 4th house or 4th lord in 12th house or the Moon in the 6th house shows the displeasure of mother. Venus of spouse etc.from the bädhakesa Moon and that they were made unfit for the serpents to live is indicated by Saturn conjoining the Moon. The native shall be very spiritual and shall learn to be totally honest and he cannot cheat others although he shall be cheated by others. That is not sufficient condition for instigation when other more serious factors exist. The ritual called Tila homa can be performed if the parent is dead. Worship Sri Balabhadra sincerely everyday. The 6th lord in 9th house or 9th lord in 12th house or the Sun in the sixth shows the displeasure of father. The Bädhakesa associated with Cancer & with Mars/Saturn shows the anger/sorrow of the mother or some maternal elder respectively. Planets in kendra to the bädhakesa shall cooperate with it. the snake god at a Sivä temple (Sun in lagna aspected by Rahu) to bring the blessings of the superior serpents [every year on birthday-janma tithi]. Mars so placed shows the curse of brother.
He could never see eye to eye with his father on any matter. Thus one of the conditions for the anger of father is fulfilled. The Sun is the sixth lord placed in lagna and aspects the bädhaka sign and is also placed in Scorpio navämsa (ruled by Mars).In this chart lagna is Pisces and the bädhaka sign is Virgo and bädhakesa is Mercury. Since the Sun is in lagna the native earned the anger of father (from childhood itself) for various acts related to girlfriends and later due to umpteen misunderstandings related to his marriage proposals and possible spouses. life pattern etc. The ninth lord Mars is in the 12th house with the bädhakesa Mercury. Saturn & Ketu conjoin in the eleventh house indicating that he shall not perform the last rites of his father and that such a misdeed can be the cause of his misfortune. Yet another dictum is fulfilled. Chart 4: Emperor Aurangzeb .
The planet causing räjayoga is the Sun as it is debilitated in räsi and exalted in navämsa thereby causing nicabhanga räjayoga. burns. The lagna is Aquarius (fixed sign) and the bädhaka sign is Libra the ninth house lorded by Venus (bädhakesa). • If Gulika/ Ketu is in any manner associated with Mars by conjunction. the association was with Saturn. . The malefic associating with Gulika shows the cause of death of the Pisaca. Preta Bädhaka (Spirits of the dead) If the funeral ceremonies or annual rites called Shraddh of the dead are not performed. Nicabhanga räjayoga and ire of father functioned simultaneously.The great Mogul Empire has one issue of infamy and that relates to the regular ascension to power by a son after slaying the heir apparent and/or father or imprisoning them. weapons. then. aspect or is placed in Aries or Scorpio. Such a Sun. Let us examine the chart of emperor Aurangzeb for classic combinations in this regard. which promises him räjayoga. one of the conditions for the wrath of father is fulfilled. If instead they are foolish enough to think that the apparent material gains (like that of an empire by Aurangzeb) is worthwhile even if father has to spend the remaining days in a dungeon. misery & poverty may be the cause of death. is also placed in the bädhaka sign in Aries navämsa (ruled by Mars). smallpox etc. it is believed that such a dead person remains in the form of a Pisaca & affects relations. The presence of Gulika/ Ketu in the Bädhaka sign shows the danger. Thus. then god help their souls. it shows sudden death or accident. Of course the question of remedy normally arises when people perceive that they are going to lose something on account of wrath of devas/parents. Aurangzeb killed his brothers and imprisoned his father (till death) and grabbed the Mogul Empire. • If instead of Mars.

while in Saudi Arabia. . mars and Ketu and does not have any benefic planet indicating the presence of unbroken Sarpa yoga. Venus gets nicabhanga as (1) Mercury is exalted and conjoins it and (2) mercury is in a quadrant from the Moon. She is not happy with her own passion and feels guilty about it. Such natives will be very passionate and shall also suffer from financial hardships and many troubles on account of such relationships.She left her birth place and went to Saudi for job in April'1999 and came back to Australia in Sept'2000. She miscarried a child in April 2000 and then gave birth to a daughter in April 2001 in Australia.used black magic against her. She started seeing a muslim boy in August 1999 and was engaged to him on the 21st Oct 1999 but ultimately the marriage did not take place. They will be entangled in these affirs like in the coils of a serpent and shall suffer consequently. Pisaca bädhaka exists as Ketu is in a quadrant and Mars is in lagna but then Ketu is not in 1st. Remedy: Rahu in first house indicates that sprinkling milk (tarpana) over the abode of serpents or over an image of the snake god (Nägaräja /Vasuki) in a temple should help curtail the problems from the Sarpa yoga. Sarpa yoga: The lagna is Capricorn (movable sign) and the bädhaka räsi is the eleventh house Scorpio owned by Mars and co-owned by Ketu. She feels that a woman. 7th or 12th house nor associated with bädhakesa. This lady is reported to have very high passion that leads her into various relationships and subsequent troubles. There is no association between the bädhakesa and the sixth lord either in räsi or navämsa. 4th or 10th houses to cause black magic. she started seeing ghosts and spirits. Abhicara/black magic: The sixth (and ninth) lord Mercury is exalted and involved in a dharmakarmädhipati yoga with the yoga karaka Venus. Around July'1999. While in Saudi Arabia she had a lot of lucid dreams of snakes. Thus we may infer that this is not a case of black magic. The lagna kendra has three malefic planets Rahu. Mars is in lagna but the sixth lord is not in 1st. who had threatened her earlier on account of relationship jealousy .
The magic used is not abhicara (black magic) but is some incantations or such rituals of a rudimentary level. then it is the Grama Devatä. 10 & 12 houses respectively. The ninth Lord can also be the Lord of 2. Hanthu käma cannot kill and the intention is to cause lots of troubles. If the ninth Lord associates with the Bädhaka House or Bädhakesa. Remedy: Mrityunjaya mantra japa is the best panacea against all evils. Gulika is in a female sign and navämsa indicating that the evil eye shall be that of a lady/female. A natural benefic in the ninth or ninth Lord in strength in a quadrant or Jupiter in Lagna/aspecting Lagna are a few of the combinations for protection. Advise resumption of worship immediately. is in Lagna. Class work Chart 6: Assignment#01 . If the second Lord associates with the Bädhaka House or Bädhakesa. The navämsa of Gulika is Taurus indicating that jealousy caused by love affair or such related matter shall be the real motivation. then it is the Kula Devatä. The specific form is called Ranthu käma and Hanthu or Bali käma are not present in the chart. Preta bädhaka: Ketu in a quadrant aspected by bädhakesa Mars that conjoins Gulika indicates that the last rites of a near relative (a lady) were not performed and she probably died of poison or some sudden death. Such a preta bädhaka is causing some terrible experiences. then the deity indicated by the planet shall surely protect the person. if the ninth Lord is also Lord of second house then. 8. However. start the remedial process by worshipping the Kula devatä. If malefic are in quadrant to them. For example. thereby leading to misfortune and troubles. We can infer that her statement about a lady threatening her because of a relationship related issue and using some ‘evil eye’ incantations against her is true although such act is not with the intention to kill. Remedial measures Jupiter<!--[if !supportFootnotes]--><!--[endif]--> & ninth lord help /protect. 6. If any planet conjoined or aspected by a natural benefic or a natural benefic itself. If the fourth Lord is associated with the Bädhaka House or Bädhakesa. 4.Drishti Bädhaka (Evil eye): The bädhakesa Mars is in lagna and associates with Rahu and Gulika confirming that she shall suffer from drishti bädhaka (evil eye) caused by käma (desire). they will strongly block the efficacy. then the deity he worshipped in his previous birth has been neglected. The dream of snakes indicates trouble from enemies and confirms this reading.
