He was introduced to jyotish by his
Kulguru at the age of eight. After the initial trigger early in life, he has pursued the study of jyotish with utmost passion ever since. He writes with the pen name Abhishekha and is the Editor/Publisher of AIAC Times, Chicago.

or the last 2 years we have been flushed with emails, phone calls from all quarters as to the source of the magical Bhrighu Saral Paddathi which as per many have re-christened astrology but one question remained unanswered the logic of these magical sutras. Mentor a year back had asked us to find out the logic behind it and our limited mind had given up on it. As if to answer mentors questions Abhishekha on his own has worked and created the logic. As per us his work exhibits sheer GENIUS but what is Genius to some is not so to others especially those who can’t see others prosper, a trait common among astrologers. Abhishekha’s logic might not be the Rishis logic/ might not be the logic of the writer of BSPs yet it speaks of a genuine logical approach in unraveling the mystery of BSPs. – SA Editor/Publisher

aptarishis Astrology Research Team did a splendid job in their recent volume (volume 7) of the magazine. One of the key article series in all their volumes were Bhrigu Saral Paddathi (Bhrigu is the Sage, Saral means Easy, Paddathi means Method). I wrote an article today (Dec 5, 2009) on the same with a different perspective titled – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy 1 Methodology” . In this current article I would summarize the findings of the last article and try to do a comparative study of BSP with BCP (Maharshi Bhrighu’s Chakra Paddhati).

Transit – The transit period of natural of the planet to return to its placement in the natal chart. BCP House Activation – According to Maharshi Bhrigu’s Chakra Paddhati. Mars implements 10H from itself.6 18. House – The effect of the planet is faced in this house relative to the placement of the planet in the natal chart. Age – The age of the native in which he/she experiences the effect of the planet.

Rahu implements 6H from itself. I discussed the possible reasoning behind this rule. Thus. When transit Mars would be in the 3H from natal Mars. When transit Mars would be in the 7H from natal Mars. Why 27th year for this activation? As per BCP. the 27th year is when the native will be tested on matters of the 3H and rewarded or punished accordingly by the 10th House from Mars. the 3H of urges gets activated in the years – 3. the house activated in one’s chart in the 27th year is the 3rd house. Sun matures in the 22nd year and Mars in the 28th year. it would aspect the 10th from natal Mars by its 8th Aspect. Mars gets digbala in the 10H. Readers are encouraged to read the “Publitorial” of SA Vol7 on “Unlocking of Karma” where the connection between 3H and 10H is indicated. This is the age when we are put to test by the planet of energy – Mars. The 10th from Mars will be zone for status. However. why did Maharshi Bhrigu mention 27th year specifically? The reason is also very simple. 15. 39 etc. 27th year is the only year when according to BCP. Readers who are not familiar with BCP (Maharshi Bhrighu’s Chakra) are requested to refer to SA Volume 3. Sun gives light and Mars gives heat. In a human life. Now. Mars is the karaka of the 3H and is the natural signification of Agni tattwa (element). it would aspect the 10th from natal Mars by its 7th Aspect. Between 22nd and 28th year. 27. . work and position where Mars will punish or reward depending on one’s karma in the 3H of urges. there are two planets that give the energy or Agni to execute a task. Both these planets get digbala (or directional strength) in the 10H. As per BCP. the 3H of urges gets activated in the native’s life.In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”. I discussed the possible reasoning behind this rule. In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”. it would aspect the 10th from natal Mars by its 4th Aspect. When transit Mars would be in the 4H from natal Mars. BSP Rule # 8 and BCP BSP Rule states that in the 38th year of the native. They are Sun and Mars.

When transit Ketu would be in the 10H from natal Ketu. The house that implements at the 24th year is the 12th house from Ketu. the 6th from natal Rahu would be conjunct transit Ketu. In the article – “A Look into Maharshi Bhrighu’s Easy Methodology”. in the 38th year. However. at the age of 25 is more focused on Venus than Jupiter.

When transit Ketu would be in the 10H from natal Ketu. When transit Rahu would be in the 12H from natal Rahu. Ketu is the planet for detachment and thereby death. However. It is widely known by all that the 6th house from any planet signifies its enemy zone or weakness.When transit Rahu would be in the 12H from natal Rahu. BSP Rule # 9 and BCP BSP Rule states that in the 24th year of the native. The house that implements at the 38th year is the 6th house from Rahu. it would aspect the 6th from natal Rahu by its 7th Aspect. Why 38th year for this activation? As per BCP. 14. As per BCP. why did Maharshi Bhrigu mention 38th year specifically? Jupiter matures at 16 years of age. 38 etc. The rule given here by Maharshi Bhrigu is nothing less than work of pure genius. it would aspect the 12th from natal Ketu by its 3rd Aspect. Rahu implements its enemy house and thus works as an agent Jupiter. 26. The rule given here by Maharshi Bhrigu is nothing less than work of pure genius. The next 2nd house cycle should have been 26th year of the native. the 2H of wealth gets activated in the years – 2. the house activated in one’s chart in the 38th year is the 2nd house. It is a known fact that people with Ketu in their Ascendant . Thus.Thus. Jupiter is also the karaka of the 2H. Ketu implements 12H from itself. the house activated in one’s chart in the 24th year is the 12th house. the 38th year is when the native will be tested on matters of the 2H and rewarded or punished accordingly by Jupiter (also indicated by the 6th house from natal Rahu). I discussed the possible reasoning behind this rule. Venus matures in the 25th year and thus over shadows the effect of Jupiter in the 2nd house. As per BCP. The next cycle of 2H comes at the age of 38 and this is when the 6th from Rahu gets activated (or in other terms Jupiter).

16. Thus in the 24th year. Why 40th year for this activation? As per BCP. I discussed the possible reasoning behind this rule.
