I am giving another sloka dealing Karakamsa. First things first.2 Om Namah Sivaya Dear Friends. Now. I worship him as a great Sage who gas graced this wonderful science to the mankind. I urge the knowledgeable Astrological fraternity to study Vriddha Karikas. that I have no disrespect fro Sage Parasara. In the previous post in this blog. which again shows my point.S: The next post will be a definite surprise to all of us which cracks the notion of Jaimini knowledge is available with only one parampara. who propounded another wonderful system. I am going to bring another Gem below. I have given one verse from BPHS and the counterpart from Vriddha Karika. How are you doing? Do you know that Saptarishis Astrology Vol4 was released yesterday. I want to go on record. Yet. but merely accepting whatever there in now available BPHS as authenticated is not good. Now. Similarly. My point here is that to understand Jaimini. 2008 What Went Wrong With BPHS .htm 25/Sep/2010 .

It not only deals the concept of Upagraha in Jaimini system. Now. Most of the Jaimini literature now on Internet deals about Karakamsa in Navamsa chart. see the relevant Vriddha Karika sloka. Vriddha Karika verse is more exhaustive and deals many concepts in one verse. It attributes the results 1. Some may get a doubt “What this Upagraha is?” There lies the key with Jataka Sara Sangraha by Raghava Bhatta again. since the sloka is very clear.Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 12 of 18 Well. Now. Do you see the similarity and the differences? This verse gives much more than what BPHS gives. Lagnamsa 3.

even after being persuaded by Sri B. But. He claims that he always followed the vriddha karakas and never contradicted or transgressed those slokas in his commentary. Sri Rangacharya never indicated that any sutra is missing from the first two adhyayas.

I can tell you that much work is in progress in the background to bring these commentaries to light. He considers Parasara Hora is a compendium of all the astrological principles available. Regarding the Chara Karaka issue. we shall have to submit the translation or the commentary in English in return to the benefit of the fraternity. but he always says that 3rd and 4th adhyayas available now are merely the interpolated versions.Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 13 of 18 I am not saying everything in ancient commentaries is fool proof. Let us wish all the best to those volunteers doing such noble work. He has shown how Rahu can be other Chara Karaka vide his Jaimini Sutramritam Sanskrit – English Commentary. let us start unlearn something and learn Jaimini from start. that is a compilation work. he works out the way Narasimha worked out. December 5. I have been closely following the discussion on Chara Karakas and the article by Narasimha on Sohamsa group. Hence.htm 25/Sep/2010 . I observed in one of Visti’s earlier mails referred Sri Iranganti Rangacharya opines that Jaimini Sutras are complete and nothing is missing.V. I want to put forth the views of Sri Rangacharya. He considers Jaimini sutras are much earlier to Parasara Hora since the Sutra Vangmaya is much earlier to Sloka Vangmaya. He always reiterates that to understand Jaimini Sage. That’s the reason why he didn’t attempt to translate them. Shanmukha. nor a Jyotisha scholar nor a Sanskrit scholar. As per the information available with me. Vriddha Karikas are the authority. Though. I want to state that I am neither a spokesperson for Sri Rangacharya.Raman. He has not shown the file://C:\Users\Ram Mohan Mishra\Desktop\New Folder\Ast\New Folder (3)\search. The following lines are purely my understanding regarding the issue. Are you ready to take on? Warm regards. do we know that these concepts exist at all in the first place? How long shall we be in darkness regarding Jaimini system? Come on friends. But. I request all to give a serious try to these ancient commentaries. I can tell you that we are going to see them very soon.

how many of us know that Raghava Bhatta and Nrisimha Suri extensively used calculation of 8th house according to vriddha karika? How many of us know there are special ayurdasas called “Jaya Bhava Pamsa. he doesn’t find Pitri Karaka. I admit that Pitri Karaka was mentioned in one of the manuscript (palm leave) I happened to see. HE can be treated as file://C:\Users\Ram Mohan Mishra\Desktop\New Folder\Ast\New Folder (3)\search. Of course. Well. since Rahu is karaka for Bandhana. Sri Rangacharya opines that “Eke” word in “Mata Saha …” sutra means that Sage Jaimini does not endorse combining MK and PK. But. In fact this debate is there for the ages. Uttara Kalamrita and brihaspata samhita are exceptions. Hence. we don’t find pitri karaka after Matri Karaka. out of eight planets. he is the first person to interpret Saturn as karaka for elder brother for the sutra “Mando Jyayan Graheshu”. Jataka Tatwa by Mahadeva Pathak is very recent scholar and he never dealt any of Rasi dasas. Vriddha Karikas are the authority.Amk. if you look in at the calculation of 8th house given by Sanjay ji is also not mentioned by Jaimini. Hence it should be kept in mind that to understand Jaimini. we have to resolve this not only with scientific approach but also with practical examples. Why I say Parasara is not the final authority on Jamini Sutras is the fact that no astrological classic said to be of Parasara system. it can be debated whether “Tasya Pitah” ever existed. Sri Narasimha was right in that direction. That method is deduced from Vriddha Karika. By the way.PuK. since Parasara is the only rishi who could compile so beautifully all the astrological principles available. In his commentary. the karakas are AK. I think. Yes.BK.MK. in the manuscript referred to by Sri Vadrevu Suryanarayana Murthy. never dealt the concepts like Padas. But. Atmano Bhava Pamsa Dasas extensively dealt by Raghava Bhatta and Nrisimha Suri ? I request all to read “Jaimini Sutramritam” by Sri Rangacharya. He tells that Rahu can’t become Atma Karaka since Jaimini himself says that “ Sa Ishte Bandha Mokshayoh”. Hence. meaning that AK can give either Bandhana or Moksha. According to him. Again. He tells that interpreting Sutra Vangmaya is different from the case with sloka Vangmaya. Rasi Drishti and argala. As I said earlier I am not a spokesperson for him and the above points can be taken worth of their salt. BPHS can be taken as one of the vriddha karika. Hence. Somebody argued that Jaimini didn’t mention the special condition of including Rahu only when two planets occupy the same degree. he can never be considered for chara atma karaka.Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 14 of 18 case with Rahu becoming higher longitude planet after deducting from 30 degrees. But.htm 25/Sep/2010 . I want to reiterate that he has not shown as how to consider Rahu when he becomes highest longitude planet. one thing I can honestly say that Sri Rangacharya is fighting through out his life for the cause of Jaimini Astrology. since he is the only commentator who dared to give Vriddha Karika slokas in his commentary. By the way.GK and DK only.

GK. minutes etc. Each and every word the great Sage speaks of. This is my humble view. Combining above two proves that only 7 CK and MK. Atma --> The Atma Karka Summarizing. he would never say “ Saptanam” He doesn’t endorse the opinion of MK and PK same. is called Atma karaka. Taking 8 CK for living beings and 7 CK for Mundane is not given either in any Jaimini work or Vriddha karika or in BPHS. and DK. Sorry for deviating from the issue. PuK. MK. In fact all sutra vangmaya is specific and cryptic as well. has a very specific purpose and distinct meaning. Jaimini never wastes even a letter. If one thinks that Sage indeed did that. Vriddha Karika is again very specific. When he says “Eke”. It means Sage is saying that the planet which has more degrees out of 7 or 8 planets is Atma Karaka. Well. The relevent Jaimini Sutra reads as " Atmadhika Kaladirnabhoga Saptanaam Asthanam Va". BK. Kala. The other way is also possible. AmK. Jaimini is always specific in his sutras. in the ensuing sutras he speaks about each every karaka by name. So he treats MK and PK different.htm 25/Sep/2010 . of chara karakas to be considered. then it is dishonouring the Sage only. PuK different and they are AK. file://C:\Users\Ram Mohan Mishra\Desktop\New Folder\Ast\New Folder (3)\search. Now let us understand the Sutra bit by bit "Atmadhika Kalaadibhirnabhoga Saptaanaam Astaanaam Va" Saptaanam Asthaanaam Va --> Out of 7 or 8 Nabhoga --> Nabho Gachhati --> that moves in sky --> the planet Adhika --> More Kalaadi --> Bhaga. Vikala etc. the one gets more degrees. if one thinks that Jaimini asking us to consider the planet having more degrees out of 7 or 8 Karakas doesn't hold good.Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 15 of 18 one of the authority but not the final. I write below my humble understanding regarding chara karaka. Since. in his cryptic upadesa sutras. When Jaimini Speaks “Saptanam AshtanamVa” If he considers 8 CK then. it is not necessary that sage telling the no. forget about a word. Even if we look at the verses given by Narasimha in his Chara Karaka article look like merely inspired / interpolated verses from Vriddha Karika. it means that it is not his opinion. we get the meaning --> Out of Seven or eight planets.

But. three karakas file://C:\Users\Ram Mohan Mishra\Desktop\New Folder\Ast\New Folder (3)\search. He didn’t spell out the condition as when to consider 7 or 8 planets. BK same degree --> Rahu comes in and one planet omitted Now other than AK 1. only Pitri Karaka inclusion in Chara Karaka scheme is doubtful and since it is there in some manuscripts and not in some. Sage only states 4 sthira karakas BK -----> Mars PK -----> Jupiter GK ----> Mercury DK -----> Venus We can get the karaka for Mother and Father as the stronger of Moon and Mars.. Vriddha Karika comes to rescue. then Rahu comes in. But Sage himself mentions MK vide sutra “Mata Saha Putra…. it is to be decided whether to include Pik or PK. AmK. experiments and sadhana. If AK. Nasargika Bala considered 3. If two Planets --> one planet. out of 7 CK. then one chara karaka will be omitted and will be filled up by corresponding sthira karaka.. how to include 8 planets for 7 CK scheme? If two planets are at the same degree. he would never say Asthtanaam Va”. Its well known to the commentators like Sri Raghava Bhatta and Nrisimha Suri and they have even given the karakas for parents. one may doubt the inclusion of MK since no sthira karaka is mentioned. we can understand Venus is Karaka for Parents vide sutra “ Patni Pitarau …. Hence.htm 25/Sep/2010 .Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 16 of 18 If he considers only 7 planets. If four planets --> three planets. 2. we must resolve it with research. Now. Now. Now. If five planets --> 4 planets. for each dasa rasi apart from chara karakas. No karaka 1. PuK must be included. two karakas 4. If three planets --> two planets. If you closely look at the Sutras we don’t find specific sthira Karaka for Mata and Pita. and the stronger of Sun and Venus respectively from other adhyayas. one Karaka omitted 3. Interpreting 3rd house from Mars etc. brothers etc.”. Now. If three planets are at the same degree. For example 1. If each planet at different degrees --> No Rahu coming in. Since sage himself spaks that MK and PuK are different. hence he asks us to consider 8 planets. is not new to Jaimini system. If AK and AmK at same degree --> No Rahu coming in.”.

where in he takes the DMS again to find the AK. Well. If seven planets --> -doThe above is found in Rangacharya’s Jaimini Sutramritam and he has been following it since 30-40 years.Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 17 of 18 5.” Sutra. I know the above explanation is not clear and logical but it shows the way vriddha karikas instructed to do. It shall be born in mind that we must move further keeping and continually referring to vriddha karikas to understand Jaimini Sutras. It must be researched and applied to know the accuracy of each scheme. based on the “Satallabhayo ….htm 25/Sep/2010 . Yet. I get consistent results with taking the planet having more DMS (Degree. I request all to understand vriddha karka slokas well. whatever Narasimha wrote in his article is not new and well practiced by Jaimini scholars excepting Rahu becoming AK. Minites. most English Jaimini commentaries never mention these slokas. But he doesn’t apply this to AK. not just debating on it. I want to say that whatever the interpretation. This not as Visti's article on Karaka Kendradi Rasi Dasa. I am giving below the relevant Vriddha Karika sloka. it can be experimented. So. if Narsimha considers AK can’t be taken over. then AK must be taken over by sthira karaka. Panapharas and Apoklimas. But. Krishna Mishra in his Jyotish file://C:\Users\Ram Mohan Mishra\Desktop\New Folder\Ast\New Folder (3)\search. if so then. when Ak and Amk are at the same degree. Here Vriddha karika is very specific that AK cannot be omitted. The duration calculation is very peculiar. since it is vriddha showing the beacon of light. That’s the precise reason why you don’t find sthira karaka for Atma and Amatya karaka. Now. 4 karakas 6. Karaka dasa given by Narasimha. comes how to use karaka lopa. Seconds) as AK. and taking PiK in place of PK in 7 CK scheme. Vriddha Karika shows two ways of Ommission of Antya Karaka and Agrima Karaka. new sort of distorting knowledge is happening. is different in Jaimini Astrology. It is called AtmaKaraka Dasa and start from the Rasi occupied by AK and proceeds Kendras. my answer is NO. Alas. Sri Narasimha considers Agrima Karaka lopa. then he must consider Antya Karaka Lopa scheme. So. Some learned scholars even wrote article on Lagnamsaka dasa as phalita dasa. So. Sri Rangacharya’s method of taking Naisargika strong Graha for AK when AK and AmK are at the Same Degree seems logical and in accordance with Vriddha Karika. Now. Vriddha karika again mentions that Atma Karaka never gets omitted in Antya karak lopa scheme. If anyone gets the feeling that I am saying there shall not be any independent interpretation of sutras. If six planets --> 5 planets. it must not contradict the vriddha karika slokas. “Amsa Samye Grahau Dwau Chet Jayetam Yasya Janmani Swa Karakam Vina Lupyati Chantya Karakaha Nischayam” So.

we must follow vriddha only. New Commentator may contradict with other ancient commentators like Neelakantha. works well. not merely asking to explain every thing under the sky with chara karaks.

Well. They are like sritis.htm 25/Sep/2010 . I have not touched how to use chara karakas for interpretation. I hope I could put my points straight. Thanks for reading along. This is like the other scholar writing book on Manduka dasa without understanding what Vriddha karika says about Manduka dasa. Vriddha Karika method of including Rahu when two planets are at the same degree. mentions Lagnamsaka dasa as Ayur dasa. preference must be given to Sriti only. As it is said if you have a doubt and Sriti and Purana differing on the issue. Raghava Bhatta. Similarly if commentator contradicts with Vriddha Karika.Jaimini Sutramritam: Search results for jaimini light Page 18 of 18 Phala Ratanamaala. and I request readers to study vriddha karikas. Warm Regards. Let the knowledge come everywhere. This is my beginning in understanding CK scheme. I don’t know how to use. Shanmukha. It is proven time and again and Narasimha finds the same.
