The term Arudha Pada is also commonly called PADA. Arudha means "MOUNT' and refers to the IMAGE of a sign falling on another due to 'reflection of the rays emanating from it and being reflected by its lord. Keeping the reflection in view, the Karaka (Significator) can be taken to be the Moon. Count from a sign to its lord. Then count as many signs from the lord to arrive at the ARUDHA PADA. For example, if the Lagna Lord is in the fifth house, then count five signs from the Lagna lord to arrive at the ninth house. This ninth house becomes the arudha Pada for the Lagna.

Exception: The Arudha Pada cannot be in the same sign or the seventh from it. In case this happens, then choose the tenth house therefrom. For example, if the Lagna Lord is in the 4th house, then the Arudha lagna should be in the 4th from the 4th house i.e. the 7th house. But since this is not allowed, the tenth therefrom should be chosen. The tenth from the 7th house is the 4th house and the 4th house becomes the Arudha Lagna. This is also called PADA LAGNA or ARUDHA LAGNA. In this manner we can compute the Arudha Pada for all the houses and these are called Dhana Pada (2nd), Bhratripada (3rd), Matri Pada (4th), Mantrapada (5th), Satrupada (6th), Dara Pada (7th), Roga pada (8th), Bhagyapada (9th), Rajyapada (10th), Labhapada (11th) and Upapada (12th).

How people perceive and judge a native is guided by the maya of this material world. you will probably think that I am a good astrologer. we always jump to conclusions and form ideas and perceptions that are possibly wrong. Those perceptions are merely illusions and the reality can be different from them.Tech at lIT. Counting the 8th from Mercury. So matri pada is in Scorpio.

The question in front of astrologers is: 'How do we distinguish between the illusions of the material world and the reality?' The answer to this important question lies in the use of arudha padas. the answer you are likely to get is 'the one with three cars'. Its lord Mercury is in 8th from it.Tech at "Varala Venkata Subbayya Engineering College'. The resultant sign contains the arudha pada of the house. If you ask someone. It is Aquarius. . we get Scorpio. defined by Computing arudha padas Arudha pada of a house is computed using the following method: (1) Rule: Measure the number of signs from the house of interest to its lord.

If the arudha pada computed above falls in the 1st or 7th from the original house for which we are finding arudha pada. From Cancer. 10th and 11th from the house. its lord Moon is in 4th. it can be mathematically proved that arudha lagna and dara pada will always be in mutually odd houses and mutual shashthashtaka position of these two padas can never occur! Why did maharshis talk about a combination that never occurs? The readers are urged not to ignore these exceptions. i. the following point may be considered by learned men: Some results are attributed in literature to the mutual shashthashtaka (6th/8th) positions of arudha lagna and dara pada (arudha pada of 7th). they are equally valid in divisional charts. Moreover.(2) Exception: Arudha pada of a house cannot be in the 1st or 7th from the house. So we find the 10th from what we found above. Arudha lagna stands for 'self. But arudha pada of a house cannot be in the house itself or the 7th from it. Otherwise. its lord Sun is in 7th. we have to consider both the lords. Counting the 7th from Sun. we get Capricorn (7th from Cancer!). Example 3: Lagna is in Taurus and Moon is in Libra. 9th.g.N.

There is another thing to remember: Though many scholars find arudha padas only in rasi chart. If one of the lords occupies the sign (e. Rao) prefer to ignore the exception in (2) above. Some scholars (e. Let us say we need to find mantra pada (arudha pada of 5th house). the other lord (e. we get Leo itself. So we find the 10th from what we found above. A more elaborate set of rules can be found in standard references. and get Taurus. i. the 3rd house is in Cancer. Usually a planet in conjunction with more planets is stronger. Use of arudha lagna Lagna is satya peetha or the seat of truth. Rahu) should be used. Sri K. we have to take the stronger lord.g. This is because the illusion is always separated from the reality. Example 2: Lagna is in Aries and Sun is in Aquarius. Solution: From Aries lagna. NOTE: It may be noticed that arudha pada of a house can only be in the 3rd. Lagna stands for true self and arudha lagna stands for perceived self. 5th. but both Parasara and Jaimini mentioned it and it cannot be ignored. From Leo. 4th. and get Libra. . But arudha pada of a house cannot be in the house itself or the 7th from it. If this exception is ignored. Counting the 4th from Moon. Let us say we need to find bhratri pada (arudha pada of 3rd house). Capricorn. but they stand for different shades of self. then the 10th house from what was found above becomes the arudha pad a.

the chart of achievements in society. We find that Sudasa (rasi dasa) of the 11th house from arudha lagna invariably improves finances. is related to true self. In this manner. By using divisional charts. Money is related more to arudha lagna than lagna. career . we can see that 5th house in saptamsa stands for son and 5th house in vimsamsa stands for mantra. But whether one is successful in a competitive examination or not. is related to perceived self. because it is a part of maya and related to perceived self. mantra. but it is not necessary always! How do we resolve this clash? We do it by using lagna for one and arudha lagna for the other. Lagna shows true self. So use lagna as a reference when judging one's intelligence and use arudha lagna when judging success in competition and fame.the 5th house can show one's judgment. we sometimes have a clash even after going to the correct divisional chart. arudha padas of individual houses show the manifestation of the house matters in this maya world. An intelligent person usually succeeds in competition. Use of other arudha padas Just as arudha lagna shows the manifestation of the native (lagna) in this maya world. For example. fame etc. Whether one is intelligent or not. In dasamsa . An intelligent person may fail and one of average intelligence may succeed. i. Arudha pada of a house show the maya associated with the matters . It is related to perceptions. we can resolve many clashes. 5th house stands for son. This is why Jaimini talked about planets in the 11th and 12th houses from arudha lagna when talking about savings and expenditures. However. Reputation is given by Sun in the 5th from arudha lagna and worries are given by Sun in the 8th from lagna. In such cases. intelligence and academic success are both to be seen in chaturvimsamsa (chart of learning) and the 5th house shows both. we have to see which matter is seen from lagna and which from arudha lag n a. as well as intelligence. based on the nature of the matter of interest. For example. balance and discretion in career and also professional reputation. Thus arudha lagna basically shows the perceptions and illusions of the world about the native and it is useful for many materialistic aspects of life. We said that Parasara prescribed chaturvimsamsa chart for learning and knowledge and the 5th house is supposed to show success in competition and fame. we can choose the correct divisional chart and the correct reference (lagna or arudha lagna). Which should be seen from lagna and which from arudha lagna? Judgment. Reputation is seen from the 5th from arudha lagna. Using divisional charts. If someone has lagna in Aries. balance and discretion are related to true self and they are seen from the 5th from lagna. arudha lagna in Cancer and Sun in Scorpio.Classics attribute many matters to each house. judgment. Sun dasa may bring reputation and worries at the same time.e.

Houses from lagna qualify it. It shows how the world perceives a person. NARASIMHA RAO Lagna shows the true self and arudha lagna shows the perceived self. but in simple terms this does confuse me.

Arudha lagna shows this. wrt lagna the effects can be bad or mixed . That is simply an illusion. Based on how good (supposedly) a car one owns. If you want to judge a person's success in competition. We form an impression about one's happiness from vehicles based on the vehicle he owns. Now the issue is: what is reality and what is an illusion?

Lagna shows the true self. the . A person considered by the world as smart may not be that smart and the world may not realize the intelligence of a really smart person. Whether you are intelligent or not relates to your true self and the 5th house from lagna shows it. This world is constantly under illusion and we form impressions about people that need not be correct. Let us take the 5th house. You're on the right path. however wrt AL it is supposed to be a RY. you should prefer arudha lagna to lagna. Arudha lagna shows perceived self (the image of the self in this world) and houses from it qualify it.GAURANGA DAS Correct. Arudha pada of nth house shows the things based on which the world forms an impression about the matters of nth house. being used to determine the Maya and illusion of the world. as it is related to the illusion of the world.

as one's car is the thing based on which the world forms an impression about one's happiness from vehicles. one has a supposedly bad car. one may work hard (physical self under strain) and increase bank balance (material gains) during the Sudasa of that sign. One's car is shown by A4 (arudha pada of 4th) in D-1 6. but happy. it is the truth and it has to do with true self. 2nd and 11th from AL to be more useful when judging Sudasa (dasa used for money). one has a supposedly good car but unhappy. whether one is fortunate or not is based on the illusions and perception yardsticks of material world and AL is more important. Understand which matter it shows. To me. understand its true meaning. Material prosperity (like money) may have to do with both true self and perceived self. Whether one is intelligent and sharp has to do with true self (lagna). whereas AL is the best to see whether one is perceived as a sharp person or not. Whether one has the happiness of a vehicle or not has to do with true self. If A4 is weak and 4th is strong. Lagna shows true self and arudha lagna shows perceived self. but perceptions are perhaps more important. This is why I suggest 5th from lagna for intelligence and 5th from arudha lagna for fame and success in competitions. So they have to do with perceived self and AL is better. for example. The 9th house shows foreign residence and also fortune.chart of vehicles and comforts). and the materialistic layer. On the other hand. Foreign residence is not a matter of illusion or perception. That thing will be what the arudha pada of that house shows! p RELATED QUESTION BYMR-ROBERT With regard to lagna and Arudha lagna. . Arudha lagna (AL) has to do with 'maya' or illusions of this world. I have seen 1st. I have already given a couple of examples. If one lives far away from his birthplace. there is little difference between the physical layer. NARASIMHA RAO The word "physical' that I used doesn't exactly describe it. But whether one owns an expensive car or a cheap car is a matter of perceptions and illusions of material world and so arudha is important. If A4 is strong and 4th is weak. Then try to come up with the thing based on which the world forms an impression about that matter. Success in competitions and fame are things that measure inherent abilities (of true self) with the yardsticks of this world. Can you explain how to differentiate? v' ANSWER BY MR. If 8th from lagna contains 11th from AL. Lagna is the seat of truth and exposes the physical layer.
