BIRTH TIME RECTIFICATION, procedure done by Divyapurusadas Persons name; Date Of Birth; Place; vedic weekday (from sunrise to sunrise); supposed/ given time of birth; most likely time of birth;

Prasnarathna, Prasna samgraha, Jataka parijata, Prasnasara & Phaladipika have been Using Gulika symptoms in different houses to see if it fits the lagna & life of the native. Gulika gives the same results as Saturn its ruler in the chart good or bad, Gulika is beneficial in upachaya houses - 3rd, 6th, and 11th. Gulika is extremely malefic. Gulika dasa: The dasa of the lord of the star dispositor of Gulika is called Gulika dasa and it can inflict death like suffering, be fatal. The lords of the Rasi and Navamsa occupied by Gulika as well as planets associating with Gulika can inflict death. Gulika is the son of Saturn and is the evil part of Saturn indicating the spread of poison within the body and mind (Gulika indicate those who shall poison us). Gulika plays a significant role in determining the Adhana chart in a mathematical expression involving Saturn. Thus it is associated with the sins of the past where we have to be punished. (Gulika rises in the middle of Saturn muhurta). Jataka parijata, Brihat jataka padhathi, Phaladipika & Uttara kalamrita did same for mandi. They are generally both in same house or close together anyway because they rise in the middle or beginning of Saturn muhurta. Mandi indicate those who we shall poison (mandi rises in the beginning of Saturn muhurta) So if the planets (AK, DK. etc.) conjunct them will be poisoned/ be killed (if gulika). or poison(drugged, medecine)/ kill (if mandi) Upagrahas are generally best in upachaya houses, they depend in dustanas, and in other houses (1,2,4,5,7,9,10) are generally negative, (bad only if they afflict planets in these houses).The effect of non-luminous planets will come during the main period or sub period of their dispositor. for each Upagraha and Muhurta Vela, the dispositor should invariably be considered before coming to a is very inauspicious when these upagrahas conjunct the sun or the moon, it will destroy the dynasty or descendants, the longevity and the wisdom.

1. Rectification of lagna in D1 or

D9 using M andi to make sure the lagna in in the correct sign (unsolved and confusing in some rare exceptions, about 1% of cases) Lagna should be in 5,7, or 9 from the Moon or Mandi in D1 or D9. # choose from Moon if Moons dispositor is stronger than Mandis dispositor # choose from Mandi if Mandis dispositor is stronger than Moons dispositor. Ideally Mandi is on the same degree in sign than the Moon or Lagna in D1, and Mandi doesnt move with time, Lagna moves 30 in 13mn.30 in D9, Mandi moves (jumps) 1 sign back in D1 in 24 H. and 7 signs back in D9 in 12 H.

middle of a sign, the person is above average height, between middle of the sign to end, it becomes shorter, at fag end native is very short. 2 b) Rectification of lagna sign using Ak & its M arana karaka sthana in D1; Marana means death; karaka means significator and refers to the charakaraka (fixed) as well; sthana means position or house. Tip; The Ak planet is generally going to be Ak planet The house(s) from Ak will become the marana karaka sthana= it will destroy the karakas the same for many hours whatever the birth (ex; will destroy DK if DK is there), will destroy houses if their lord (include dual lordship) time is (maybe a fast planet may change sign or arudha is there. or moon will become Ak ) so You will be able Sun the 12th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) to locate the karakas (of planet, house or Moon the 7th & 8th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) arudha) to be destroyed.does it fit to the life Mars the 4th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) of the native ?.if not then the Ak is different Merc. the 3th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) so is the birth time & lagna sign. (Confirm Jup. the 6th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) mandi again if rectified) Venus the 1st from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) Saturn the 9 Rahu the 9th from AK will destroy any karakas (of planet, house or arudha) Raths Research;2.If dharakaraka, Jupiter or 2nd lord is in a Marana karaka sthana then wealth is destroyed and poverty results. 3.If dharakaraka, Venus or 7th lord is in a Marana karaka sthana then relationships suffer and spouse maybe destroyed. 2 c) Rectification of lagna sign using the Marana avasthas in D1; procedure; Confirm the position and effect of the planets if they fall in marana The Marana Avastha (significators of death) bring great havoc, especially if in conjunction with or aspected by malefics or in inimical or planet Dead Likely results the planet can bring to its depression signs, great grief is sure to come. in karaka or position in a house or lordship There is a specific house where a particular planet becomes extremely weak to carry out Sun 12 fire hazards its functions. The planet loses its vitality and is unable to protect its functional as Moon 8 danger from water well as natural significations. the person would suffer due to the natural as well as Mars 7 accident and danger from weapons/ the functional significations of the planet under consideration surgery The dasa of the sign which contains a marana karaka planet would bring havoc to Merc. 7 trouble due to flatulence the life of the native or death of relatives, signified by the either the natural, Jup. 3 stomach problems, food, liver functional or movable significations of the planets. They can also show troubles to Venus 6 trouble from opposite sex, the matters ruled by the houses lorded by the marana karaka planet. Thus, if Sun Saturn 1 happens to be the 5th lord, it can show troubles to father (natural signification) or troubles Rahu 9 venomous bites, poison, drugs to the children (functional signification for the 5th house. The natural years of yoga fructification of each house is as follows: 4 : 00- 09 years, 2 : 09- 18 years, 8 : 18- 27 years, 10: 27- 36 years, 12: 36- 45 years, 6 : 45- 54 years, 5 : 54- 63 years, 11: 63- 72 years, 1 : 72- 81 years 7 : 81- 90 years, 9 : 90- 99 years, 3 : 99- 108 year 2 d) Rectification of lagna sign using karakat-bhava nasana in D1.

2 a) Rectification of lagna sign with lagna lord (not tested); Lagnesh in the beginning of a sign produces tall native, as it proceeds to the

THE KARAKAT-BHAVAS (Controller of Bhava) (the main ones are actually the lords of the 12 signs/ natural houses in order ) primary bhavakarakas are given below in bold, each bhava has many secondary karakas. Both the primary and secondary karakas are important for protecting the signification of a bhava. Any bhava whose karaka is well placed in kendra/ trine from the bhava in good dignity or is aspecting the bhava or is placed with the lord of the

bhava try to fulfil the promise of the bhava. The bhava karakas in its bhava (karako bhava nashana) is not very helpful for the affairs of that house it destroy the persons represented by that house (in bold) but not the other significations; FIRST HOUSE: Sun; (vitality/ vigor, health and longevity), Moon; (body, mind), Mars (skull). SECOND HOUSE: Jupiter; (wealth ), Mercury; (speech), Venus; (family), Sun-Moon; (Eyes) THIRD HOUSE: Mars; (younger siblings, sister in law, courage or weaknesses, violence, enterprise), Venus; (sisters), Saturn; (for native; misery causing troubles, longevity, mental problems, illusion), Mercury; (communications, rail transportation, neighbors/ neighboring countries) FOURTH HOUSE: Moon; (mother, emotions), Venus (vehicles / conveyances, comfort,), Mercury; (education, learning), Mars; (constructed property, land), Jupiter; (joviality, prosperity, peace of character) FIFTH HOUSE: Jupiter; (children sons, paternal grand-parents & family, speculation, state decorations/ statecraft, advice, intuition, superior education (behavior, integrity), condition of previous karmas, discernment), Mercury; (intellect, shares/ unearned money, lottery), Saturn; (illegal amusement, gambling, sorrows, illness) SIXTH HOUSE: Mars; (enemies/ enmity, litigations, acute diseases, wounds/ injury, bodily afflictions,), Saturn; (debt, grief, chronic disease) and mercury (brethren/ brotherhood fellows, maternal & paternal uncles, service), Jupiter; (legal affairs, law) SEVENTH HOUSE: Venus; (spouse, marriage, marital & mental happiness, other relationships, romantic passion), Mars; (sex vigor), Jupiter (husband), Mercury; (business partner) EIGHTH HOUSE: Saturn here is an exception, he become helpful to its karakas (unnatural desires, longevity, wills and legacies, accidents, bankruptcies, sudden unexpected torment and loss, chronic disease or pain, mental agony). Mercury; (hidden wealth) NINTH HOUSE: Jupiter; (preceptors, higher education, spiritual quests, dharma, luck, charity, good or bad fortune; bhagya), Sun; (the father, the soul) TENTH HOUSE: Mercury; (skills, vocation, commerce), Sun; (government, power, position authority, fame), Saturn; (tradition, employment, livelihood, fixed service), Jupiter (success in professions/ fortune) ELEVENTH HOUSE: Jupiter; (elder brother/ siblings, friends, gains/ profits), Mercury; (opulence) TWELFTH HOUSE: Saturn; (sorrows/ regret, losses/ expenditures, segregation, solitude). Mars; (confinement), Venus; (desires fulfilled), Jupiter; (jnana, eternal/ spiritual wisdom), Ketu; (liberation) Note : Seven Karakas alone may not be able to clarify some subtle points in a horoscope. Combined with Sthirakarakas all areas get covered comprehensively

When we take a bhava for judgment we should treat as if that bhava is lagna and then see how the planets are placed in that chart as reckoned from the bhava. (and the bhava-karaka planet representing persons should also be taken as lagna to judge bhavat bhavam)The sum and substance of this principle is that a bhava will give bad results if the lord of 3rd, 6th, 8th or 12th is posited there or if the bhava lord is posited in any of these houses. If the bhava lord and the bhava karaka occupy exaltation, own, friendly and favorable position in Navamsa, but be placed in 8th, the benefic results of that Bhava will not be enjoyed . Where a bhava lord and karaka due to their occupation of debilitation houses and the like, have become weak, but are posited in very auspicious houses such as the 11th etc., they prove good notwithstanding their decayed condition. Death/ destruction of any house can take place in the dasa or antardasa of the lord of 2nd or 7th from that house, this Death or destruction will be caused by planets there or aspecting the house or by the bhava Karaka representing that house (ex; if it is the lagna, then the sun) Principles of judging karaka's effects in a nutshell are as follows (from Practical vedic Astro by G.S Agarwal p.253) 1. Karaka posited in the relevant house may be bad (karakat bhava nasana) but his aspect to relevant house is not bad rather adds dignity to the appropriate bhava. 2. When a karaka is in the 12th from lagna its karakatawa prospers but the house lordship of the planet suffers heavily, ex; Jupiter in 12th gives prosperity to the 5 houses to whom he is the bhava-karaka but adversely affects the two houses of his lordship, so a karaka having lordship over evil houses i.e. 8th or 12th is welcome in 12th house. 3. A person is fortunate in respect of that bhava whose karaka is in 12th from lagna. 4. Karaka lord in 12th from the concerned bhava is beneficial, e.g. Sun as karaka of 1st is welcome in 12th. Jup in I, 4, 8 and 10 bhavas as karaka of 2, 5, 9, 11 bhavas respectively is welcome. 5. Karako bhavanashakaha:- Each karaka bhava consists of 2 parts - corporal and the non-corporal part. A karaka in karaka bhava afflicts the corporal part alone (people) e.g. Sun in 9th afflicts the parent and Mars in 3rd afflicts younger brother, whereas, the non-corporal aspects remain preserved such as spirituality in the 9th and courage in the 3rd house. Thus the dictum karako bhavanashakaha is applicable accordingly. 6. The unfavorable effects due to the stay of the bhava karaka in the bhava as mentioned above (karako bhava nashana) can considerably be minimised if that karaka planet enables itself to establish some sort of relationship with the lord of house. 7. An example as to how to determine karkattawa results: 6th house rules service. and enemies. Karaka Mercury determines results for service and Mars for enemies. So we link 6th house with Mars for enemies, and with Mercury for service and so on. 8. if the karaka planet is the yogi planet or is in the star of the yogi planet = no evils Main 7 sthira karakas of planets (presided by Siva for destuction of body), It is always safe to use the 9 planets with their well-known significations; 1. The stronger planet between the Sun and Venus represents father + paternal uncle, politician, doctor (some say for night birth saturn is father) 2. The stronger planet between the Moon and Venus represents mother + ladies, (some say for night birth moon is mother and for day birth mars is mother, S.Rath says that The stronger planet between the Moon and Mars represents mother) 3. Mars represents younger brother, sisters, brother-in-law and even mother. + step-mother, paternal relations, 4. Mercury represents uncles and aunt, (maternal and paternal) + adopted sons, friends + some say mercury represents Maternal uncles, aunts and all maternal relatives and nephews (probably from younger brother/sister only) 5. Jupiter represents paternal grand parents. + some include husband, progeny/sons (under Saturn?) & sons of elder brother (nephews) 6. Venus represents husband. + some include Wife, wife's parents or parents in law, maternal grand parents, sister, daughter 7. Saturn represents sons ?. (It appears strange to me.) + Elder brother or sister + other elders, younger co-borns ? for mars 8. Rahu represents paternal and maternal male grandparents. (Some say; paternal grandfather & maternal grandmother) 9. Ketu represents paternal and maternal female grandparents. (Some say; maternal grand-father & paternal grand-mother) more (some say); The stronger planet between the sun & venus represents uncles, The stronger planet between the moon & Saturn represents aunts , uncles and aunts in odd houses is auspicious. Parents in even houses is good, Note: the 7 Jaimini Karakas (AK, AmK..etc.) alone may not be able to clarify some subtle points in a horoscope. Combined with Sthirakarakas as here, all areas get covered comprehensively. The clue is that; Arudhas will modify the house results they represent, not stop it; so their position is important (in odd male/even female sign, in mal/ben sign/ben.dispositor, conjunct mal/ben, in good sarva-astaka house,) From an arudha indicating gross relations, any other arudhas, or fixed/sthira karaka (the 7 karakatva planets), or lords of houses placed in 7th from it, will oppose that karaka/ person= in 12th will bring losses, in 8th will bring poverty/pain, in Kendra or trine will support or bless, also the position of the other arudhas from lagna are important (conj. Mal/ ben, in 3/6/10/11)

(isthaghati in ghatis & decimals of ghatis x 6) + Sun longitude in a sign in degrees & decimals of degrees + 1 (because 1=sun sign) = lagna position from sun (take 30 only the quotient, the remainder is left) Note 1); the lagna will change at intervals of about 2 hours (30/6 = 5 ghatis = 120mn.= 2 hours). If the lagna is not in its proper position from the Sun then the ishtaghati (sunrise to birth) have to increase or decrease to match. How much time the birth time will have to be modified? ; do the reverse operation from the above formula; for example if you get 384.85/30 = 12.82 + 1 = 13.82 (lagna must be 13 signs away from sun = same sign), so if it is not the case, let say the lagna is 14 signs away (2nd from sun) and we want it with the sun , so we got 384.85, keep the remainder .85; we have to increase the birth time 0.15x 120mn. to get to 385, so that 385/30 = 13+1= 14 signs from the Sun. Now if we want to decrease 1 sign then we have to subtract 0.85x 120 mn. to the birth time. Note 2); the Sun longitude in a sign have almost no influence on the lagna position, it can only change the lagna 1 sign more or 1 sign less if the remainder after the quotient is close to ,99 or .01 (close enough to change the lagna sign). Nonetheless the isthaghati precision must be there because it can easily change the lagna, therefore sun appearing to be at the horizon seems the correct choice in JHora for ishtaghati computing. Example: (Refer to the bio-data given in the example 6.1 , from Predictive astro. M.N.Kedar) ; Date of Birth = 19-9-1931 Sunrise 6hrs 12mts, Sunset 18hrs 19mts, Time of Birth = 3-30 a.m. (lST), Place of Birth = Delhi, Sun longitude; 5 Signs + 27' Janma nakshatra = Moola 1st

2 e) Rectification of lagna sign using the sun & istha ghati ( from Predictive astro. M.N.Kedar & Uttara kalamrita) this method is fast and correct so far I tested it ; the Ascendant of a Birth chart is totally linked to the Sun position and to the time from sunrise to birth so the quick formula is;

(A) (i) Sun's longitude from 0 aries = 5S + 27' or 5S 2.12 note; to convert minutes and seconds of arc into decimal fractions of degrees , for example if we have the Sun's longitude in a sign at 27'36, 7'36 = (7'x 60) + 36= 420 + 36 = 476 of arc 476/ 3600 = 0.1322 (1 degree = 3600"of arc) 27'36 = 2+ 0.1322= 2.1322 (ii) Number of Ghatis passed from sunrise (istha ghati)= 53 Ghatis & 13 Vighatis or 53.22 Ghatis (in decimals of ghatis) note; Jagannath Hora gives already the isthaghati in ghatis and decimals of ghatis, if you have another program you need to convert ghatis/ vigatis into ghatis only (decimal fraction of ghatis added after the .point) for help to convert look at the table at the end of this paper. (B) Multiply number of Ghatis by 6 (ii)= 53.22 x 6 = 319.32 (C) Add Sun's longitude in degrees and decimal fractions of degrees (devoid of sign) to (B) = 319.32 + 2.12= 321.44 (D) Divide by 30 (because each Rashi is of 30) = 321.44 / 30 = 10 signs & 21.44/30 (E) Add 1 to the quotient = 10 + 1 = 11(so the lagna must fall in the 11th sign from the sun in virgo) cancer which is correct (2645' cancer)

3.confirm lagna position in D1 & D9 ; the position of AK in D1 shows in which house the karmic sins are, where are the obstacles and suffering
especially during the main period of the AK planet unless one is an advanced soul he will take advantage of it, AK planet is to purify the soul from its karmic sins so it will be ready for spiritual life, generally speaking a person having a tough/ malefic planet as AK means a great soul. So the house in which AK is in D1 is not getting improvement. see which planet is atma-karaka in D9 (it wont change , but its house position may change with the lagna), AK planet represents/ signify /indicates the desire of the soul. ..some ideas Sun as AK= should give ego, become humble, Moon as AK= should care, be compassionate, Mars as AK= should practice ahimsa, non-violence, Mercury as AK= should control speech. speak the truth , Jupiter as AK= should respect guru, father, husband, authorities, care for children, etc.. Venus as AK= must be clean, not lusty, stick to legitimate sex life, Saturn as AK= dont give sorrows but accept others sorrows, Rahu as AK= dont cheat/ revenge, just tolerate, be patient. in D9; lagna = the present condition the soul have got (gross and subtle) , AK = the desires/ aspirations of the soul in this life, Sun = pure original self/ ego, Supersoul, So the lagna, AK & Sun must be in good relation with each others in D9 (not in 6/8/12 relation). Harmony between Sun and AK means that the person/ atma accepts his/ her present condition/ karma , otherwise some internal conflicts/ disbalance in the personality. AK in 1 in D9 = soul fits well in the body, self realized. Also the position of any other karakas in D9 with the lagna will reflect the relationship between the native and the particular karaka. The Jaimini movable Karakas indicates relationships , gross with the 7 karakas scheme (adopted by KN Rao) and subtle with the 8 karakas scheme
subtle relations with the 8 karakas gross relations with the 7 karakas (Rahu not included) 1, AK = self/desires/ king 1, AK = self/desires/ king 2, AmK = amatya, vocation, valor, adviser, minister 2, AmK = amatya, vocation, valor, position, adviser, minister 3, BK = Bhatru, associate(s)/ teacher/ brother, BK planet and any planet 3, BK = Bhatru, associate(s)/ teacher/ brother BK planet and any planet associated with it will partake the same nature associated with it will partake the same nature 4, MK = Matru , mother type, nourisher, energy giving 4, MK (+ PK) = Matru , mother type, nourisher, energy giving 5, PiK = Father, authority. (KN rao drop PiK, & uses 7 only) ,Parasara merges MK with PK, if so 5th becomes PiK 6, PK = putra, child giver, followers. 5, PiK (or PK) = Father, authority. (KN rao drop PiK, & use PK) 7, GK = gnati, same type/ creed/ caste, rivals, competitors, cousin 6, GK = gnati, accidents, diseases, rivals, competitors. 8, DK = Dhara, spouse/ life partner. 7, DK = Dhara, spouse/ life partner. Note; 7 Chara karakas are presided by Vishnu and they show people who play an important role in ones sustenance, achievements and spiritual progress. Chara karakas are very useful in Raja Yogas and in spiritual progress. They also show how our karma (cumulative sum of actions) is carried from one life to another.

# so check also some propensities/ symptoms of AK position in D9 (from lagnamsa or first house); AK in 1= noble or good birth + the native will rise (if the lagna lord is in own amsa in D9) + association of aristocratic/ powerful people if AK aspect the sign of the navamsa lagna in D1, Sun must be strong for all these to happen, AK in 2 = spiritual/ saintly type if Saturn is strong or a tapasvi if mercury is strong , AK in 3 = rich, successful + friend with powerful people , AK in 4 = karma yogi (+ fame if Moon & Jupiter are strong) , Rajayogi if Sun is strong, hard worker if Saturn is strong, AK in 5 = follow dharma, get children (sons especially) a strong Sun is better , AK in 6 = diseased or troubled, fast on full moon & propitiating Saturn and Narayana is recommended , AK in 7 = clean heart, joyfull life, (+ good marriage if Venus is strong), AK in 8 = troubles, weaknesses, losses in war, fast on full moon & propitiating Saturn and Narayana is recommended AK in 9 = pious, wealthy, fortunate , AK in 10 = pillar of family, support mother + clean heart and good home (especially if Moon is strong) , AK in 11 = brave, successful, jack of all trade (+ rajayoga if moon is strong) , AK in 12 = very rich (Laksmis blessings) but probably spoiled.

4 a. Procedure look OK but does not depend on the ayanamsa ; the sex/ gender of a person born depends theoretically on the gap of time from sunrise (tip appears to be on the horizon) to the birth-time (1st breath/ cry), it is called isthaghati. The gender thus changes at intervals of every 6 mn =0.25 ghatis or 15 vighatis, 0.1 ghati = 0 01 of the sun course = 2 mn 24 , 0.01 ghati = 14 sec Number of Ghatis at birth is not required IF The lagna of birth is in Consider only The fraction of ghatis after the integer or the number of vighatis An odd sign An even sign .00 to .25 or .50 to .75 (that is 0 to 15 or 30 to 45 Vighatis) Then it is a FEMALE Then it is a MALE .25 to .50 or .75 to.999 (that is 15 to 30 or 45 to 60 Vighatis) Then it is a MALE Then it is a FEMALE 4 b -Find the sex of the child according to the lagna doubtfull method);take sign + sign + Lagna sign = X (X + 3)/7 = If the remainder is an even = female chart, if it is is an odd = male chart 5. Use then the tattva cycle and tattvantara sub period, (Regular use of this theory by ancient astrologers, Some slokas in Uttara kalamrita also initiates thoughts in these lines as well as Yanjcha valkya smrithi) Please use JH hora with calculation options settled as; geocentric and true position of planets & the tip of the Sun disk is truly on the horizon, (how can the earth atmospheric condition & refraction affect the planets influence on earth or the tattva cycle ? impossible..) How it works; there is 8 cycles of 3 hours from sunrise to the next, each cycle comprises increasing and decreasing periods of the 5 elements, each period is then divided into sub periods and sub-sub periods. Males are born during male tattvas periods and subperiods only, females during female tattva periods and subperiods, other entities at any time. Exceptions can occur only if a person is born at the junction of the 3 h. periods or in the middle of the 1st cycle (that means if the person is born exactly at sunrise or every 90 mn. thereafter then the person can be either male or female). effect of birth in different tattvas; male or female qualities will be more prominent for the native born in the specific tattva; if birth is in aroha tattva main period then the element influence/ quality will increase with age , if in avaroha it will decrease as the native grow older 1. Prithivi /for males ; materialistic/ earthly disposition, enjoying mood, comforts. 2. Jala /for females ; emotional, sensitive, passive, intuitive, detached. 3. Tejas/ for males ; ksatriya type, enthusiastic, imposive, impressive, in power (rising or losing), commanding. 4. Vayu/ for females; active, communicative, enjoying, intellectual.

5. Akasa/ for males; deep thinking, research, analysis, philosophy, science, immaterial, detached. MAIN PERIOD CYCLE; twilight birth (if it occurs) is defined to begin in the morning, and to end in the evening when the center of the Sun is geometrically 6 degrees below the horizon/ ascendant or descendant (= about 24 mn or 1 ghati if birth is near the equator). Tip of the sun truly on horizon= sun longitude is +/- 16 of arc from lagna (16= suns radius) Tip of the sun appears to be on the horizon= sun longitude is +/- 50 of arc from lagna (16+ 34of refraction) TIME OF SUNRISE OR multiples of 3 Hours from sunrise .(3 times 8 cycles = 24 hours) Vedic day Aroha/ increasing period of 1h 1/2 Avaroha/ decreasing period of 1h 1/2 M/ P 6 F/ J 12 M/ T 18 F/ V 24 M/ A 30 M/ A 30 F/ V 24 M/ T 18 F/ J 12 Wed.

6. then check out with KUNDA in JHora ( first breath or first cry of baby) this is real birth. (mentioned in Prasnamarga, Prasnareethi, Varaha hora, Saunaka hora) 1nd method ; fill the chart below. 2nd method From prasna marga part 1; divyas comments; I think this can be applied for birth rectification also; but this method is tricky because a slight change in minutes of arc in ayanamsa will change the star of kunda, so The method with Kunda and Moon in trine in D1 as above is better and has been tested, ., Anyway give it a try/ test it.. Take the Lagna Sphuta (degrees and minutes of lagna in a sign, converted in minutes of arc) it will be from 0 to 3600. Lagna Sphuta/ divided by 4 = remainder will be from 0 to 4 # if the remainder is 0, that means that the star of kunda is 1, 10 or 19 # if the remainder is 1, that means that the star of kunda is 9, 18 or 27 # if the remainder is 2, that means that the star of kunda is 2, 11 or 20 # if the remainder is 3, that means that the star of kunda is 3, 12 or 21 the star of kunda must be in trine with the star of lagna, the birthtime of Prasna is correct,(have the same trinal number, 1/10/19, 2/11/20, 3/12/21, 4/13/22, 5/14/23, 6/15/24, 7/16/25, 8/17/26, or 9/18/27 ) so you have to add or subtracts 10 of arc (about +/- 40 seconds of time) to the lagna for each star difference. The lagna star is likely to remain the same because you have 1020 of arc for each star. So the maximum time range rectification expected for the lagna using this 2nd kunda method will be +/- 40 of arc (+/- 2 mn. 40 sec.) During that maximum period Kunda will move +/- 53 in D1 (enough to be in trine with moon in D1 as per the 1st kunda method) Kunda s position does not change if the time of sunrise is incorrect. So it is very reliable. 1st method; The moon must be in trine with Kunda in D1 (Kunda moves 81x faster than the lagna ) Kunda moves 1 every 3 sec. .....................30 every 130 ...................120 every 6
# so the maximum range of rectification will be +/- 3mn. using kunda lagna. # the tattva element of kunda is supposed to be the native prominent tattva..

7. then use Pranapada (in Jyothisha Rathnakaram) = first prana, Pranapada must fall in trine or in 7th from lagna in D9,
Pranapada moves 30 in 40 inD9 1 per second, In D1 Pranapada moves 1 in 12 or 30 in 6mn. (Pranapada is 20x faster than lagna) but carefull; Pranapada moves back 30 if the sunrise is 40 seconds later, its longitude is calculated from the suns longitude in movable, fixed or dual

sign. Note; Since the Pranapada indicates the life energy, it is always counted from a movable sign, from Sun, the giver of Life.

From BPHS ch.74 Before declaring these results, the effects of the Sun and other planets should be wisely conceived. =malefic Results for Pranapada in D1; PP in 1 = the native will be weak, sickly, dumb, lunatic, dullwitted, defective-limbed, miserable and emaciated. PP in 2 = the native will be endowed with abundant grains (rice, wheat etc.), abundant wealth, abundant attendants, abundant children and be fortunate. PP in 3 = the native will be injurious, (or mischievous), proud, hard-hearted, very dirty and be devoid of respect for elders. PP in 4 = the native will be happy, friendly, attached to females and elders, soft and truthful. PP in 5 =, the native will be happy, will do good acts, be kind, and very affectionate. PP in 6 = the native will be subdued by his relatives and enemies, be sharp, will have defective digestive fire, be wicked, sickly, affluent and Short-lived. PP in 7 = the native will be green-eyed, ever libidinous, fierce in appearance, be not worth respect and be ill-disposed. PP in 8 = the native will be afflicted by diseases, be troubled and will incur misery on account of the king, relatives, servants and sons. PP in 9 = the native will be endowed with sons, be very rich, fortunate, charming, will serve others and be not wicked but be skilful. PP in 10=, the native will be heroic, intelligent, skilful, be an expert in carrying out royal orders, and will worship gods. PP in 11= the native will be famous, virtuous, learned, wealthy, fair-complexioned and attached to mother. PP in 12= the native will be mean, wicked, defective-limbed, will hate Brahmins and relatives and will suffer from eye diseases or be one-eyed.

8. GETTING TO THE FINEST PRECISION with the 2 last systems; (rarely used) A ) We can use the isthaghati/ naksatra rectification (not proved or tested) the maximum range of accuracy will be +/- 121
isthaghati (time elapsed from sunrise/ tip of the sun appearing to birth/ first breath) is given in Parasara light under reports/ astronomy/ astronomical details/ Bhabhog (= isthaghati) is given in ghatis/ vighatis and vipalas, or Jagannath Hora gives the isthaghati in ghatis and decimals of ghatis. To get also the vighatis use my table (in the last page) so that the fractions of Ghatis after the dot can be converted into vighatis. Or calculate the ishtaghati in hours and minutes (1 h.= 2.5 ghatis and 1 min.= 2.5 vighatis) convert the time into ghatis and vighatis, then the whole time into ghatis and vighatis have to be converted into vighatis only , or convert the whole ishtaghati into minutes and multiply by 2.5, you have now the whole ishtaghati in vighatis. Most simple , faster method for same result; convert the whole isthaghati in seconds (big number). divide it by 162, the remainder should correspond to the moon birth star, if not add or substact multiples of 6 seconds to come to the proper star as in the table below ; 0 1 Aswini 24 5 Mrigasira 48 9 Aslesha 72 13 Hasta 96 17 Anura. 120 21 U.ashada 144 25 P.bhadra 6 2 Bharani 30 6 Ardra 54 10 Magha 78 14 Chitra 102 18 Jyestha 126 22 Sravana 150 26 Ut.badra 12 3 Krittika 36 7 Punarvasu 60 11 Purva p 84 15 Swati 108 19 Mula 132 23 Dhanista 156 27 Revati 18 4 Rohini 42 8 Pushya 66 12 Uttara p 90 16 Visakha 114 20 P.ashada 138 24 Satabhi. 162 Star 1 again Other method ( I tested it and it looks OK); now you have the ishtaghati in vighatis, name it VG, so VG x 4/27 = only the remainder is important and should correspond to the moon naksatra of birth # so if the remainder (0 to 26) + 1 is > to the moon naksatra of birth, then we have to subtract Y (difference), so then subtract Y times 6 seconds (0.25 vighatis) to the birth time. The time of birth fits now the moon naksatra # so if the remainder (0 to 26) + 1 is < to the moon naksatra of birth, then we have to add +Z (difference), so then add +Z times 6 seconds (0.25 vighatis) to the birth time. The time of birth fits now the moon naksatra ( now we have the correct time if multiples of 27x 6 sec.= 2mn 42 sec. are added or subtracted we will still get the birth star correctly) note; some astrologers divide by 4 and multiply by 9 then the remainder (1 to 9) is counted from Ketu's nakshatras; Asviini, Magha or Moola as # 1, dividing by 27 makes the maximum range of accuracy (2mn 42) wider as in method A), dividing by 9 can shorten the accuracy 3 times (54 sec.). B) rectification using the 3rd tattva cycle, to confirm and pinpoint the isthaghati/ naksatra rectification if you want accuracy to the second, (I almost never used it) problem; if the time of sunrise is slightly different (less than few seconds) then the result will fall into another tattva!

The samvatsar (year) of the birth of the querist will be the same as that of the rasi in the Dwadasamsa in which the Prasna Lagna falls. (It means that Jupiter will be in that rasi in D1 in the birth chart). 6 month period; Uttarayana birth (the northern course of the Sun; (21st sept. to 21st march) will be in the first Hora of the prasna Lagna and Yamyayana (Dakshinayana-the southern course of the Sun from 21st march to 21st sept.) will be in its second Hora. The ritu (season) may be determined with reference to the lord of the Drekkana in which the Lagna falls; = vasanta spring is from mars 14 to may 14, or = Grisma summer till july 14, = Varsa rainy season till sept 14, = Sarat autumn till nov 14, = hemanta winter till jan 24, = Sisira cold till march 14 these are valid for northern hemisphere. If there be any contradiction in the ayana and ritu, the ritu may be determined from Mercury in place of Mars, from Venus in place of the Moon and from Saturn in place of Jupiter. (my view; lords of seasons have to be adjusted to the climate and hemisphere because planets are ruling over them) Which month? ; After the ritu becomes known, take the first part of the Drekkena as its first month and latter part as the next month of the ritu; (if the lagna falls if the first half of the sign in D3 then the birth should have been in the first month of the season) a vedic season have 2 month. Then from the expired amsas of the Drekkana, determine proportionately the tithi or the amsas of the Sun. The Istakala indicated by the amsas (degrees) of the Sun, will be the time of the birth of the querist. From the Istakala so calculated have to be worked out the longitudes of the planets and houses (Graha spast and Bhava spast). Predictions should then be made in accordance with the dispositions of the houses and planets Working out of amsas of the Sun; look how many degrees/min/sec of arc the lagna have passed in the drekkana in D1 = (deg. min & sec passed after 0, 10 & 20) these deg. min & sec correspond to amsa, kala & vikalas. Convert these deg. min & sec into min & sec After ascertaining the rasi, amsas etc.,,of the Sun at the time of birth, the longitude of the Sun (Surya spast) should be worked out for the next day after the number of days taken by the Sun after entering into the rasi which will be equal to the expired amsas of the Sun. Then the difference between the longitudes of this rising Sun and the Sun at the time of birth should be converted into kalas and multiplied by 60, The product should be divided by the Surya spast converted into kalas. The Ghatikas e t c . , so becoming available will represent the Istakala of the birth before and after sunrise. If the longitude of the Ista Sun be more than that of the rising Sun, t h e Istakala of the birth will be so much after the sunrise. If the longitude, of the Ista Sun be less than that of the rising Sun, the Istakala of the birth will be so much before the sunrise.
# First of all, an astrologer should note down the time when questioned about a horoscope or start to work on it for rectification, then he draw the prasna chart and note in the prasna chart the 4 ruling planets; the day lord, the moon sign dispositor, the moon naksatra dispositor & the lagna lord. # The supposed lagna lord in the birth chart must be one of the 4 ruling planets in the prasna chart,

Experimental; a) Lost Horoscopy through prasna # 1 (from BPHS Chapter 78); If any or all amongst the samvatsar, ayana, ritu, month, paksha, tithi, nakshatra, Ascendant, rasi or amsas etc., of the birth are not known, these can be ascertained from Prasna Lagna.

b) Lost Horoscopy through prasna # 2; another method by Kamal kapoor (more easy);
