manner denotes puma ayush according to Garga Muni. JupiterA/enus in quadrants indicate 50 years longevity; both in quadrants 100
years.
Lord of Asdt and lord of 8th, both in own houses confer 64
years longevity.
Both lords of 5th and Asdt conjunct or aspected by Jupiter
confers longevity around 100 years.
Lords of Asdt and 9th unite and are aspected by Jupiter,
longevity of 100 years would result.
Balarishta
The mere stay of Jupiter in exaltation, quadrants, 6, 8 or 12 constitutes some relief for the malefic yogas operating on the horoscope.
Balarishta possibility of death in childhood is nullified if Lord of Asdt is strong. If Mercury, Jupiter and Venus are in quadrants/trines, all
evils are nullified and the native will enjoy long life.
The following 2 yogas are also capable of nullifying evil yogas in a horoscope:
Strong Jupiter in Asdt irrespective of his lordships and whether he is a benefic or otherwise for the horoscope. Rahu as a benefic is
standing in Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio or Capricorn.

Venus and Jupiter are capable of nullifying all evil effects operating in a horoscope.
As far as Moon is concerned, Jupiter's aspect on Moon will cancel the evil of Moon staying in 6, 8 or 12 for those born during
nights in the waxing half and during the day in waning half.
Long Life
Full Longevity will be enjoyed by the native if Saturn has some benefic yoga besides lordship over Asdt or 8th. Sun in Asdt and Mars in
8th constitutes a Raja Yoga whereby the native will enjoy Deerga Ayush (long life) and Kingly life.
Maraka - Death Inflicting Planet
Lords of 2nd/7th are Marakas. Planets posited in 2nd/7th are also Marakas.
According to some, even planets aspecting 7th/2nd are marakas and that 2nd is a greater maraka sthana than the 7th.
Next in order, lord of 12th and planet posited therein, become marakas, but with benefic yoga, they cease to be marakas.
Lords of 3 and 8 also become marakas provided they are not in exaltation and not connected with benefic. if
they are malefics, they are definitely marakas; Sun and Moon, even with lordship over 8th do not become marakas but with
lord ship over 8th and exaltation, Sun and Moon become Marakas.
Having decided the maraka evil in this fashion in the order of priority given above, determine time of death with reference to the
Maraka Major Period. If no planet has Maraka Dosha as stated above, then determine the death-inflicting planet from among the
lords of 3,6,8,12 and 11 (in order of priority) provided there lords have no connection with benefics or benefic yogas.
Stay in the above mentioned signs, connection with a malefic and malefic aspect should be considered for the above lords.
In their Major Period or sub-period, death will occur. Even if a planet other than Saturn possesses Maraka Dosha, if Saturn
also has Maraka Dosha plus malefic qualities, and even if the former's Major Period occurs first, Saturn will take over the
function of inflicting death on the native.
Longevity
Puma ayush, Madhya ayush and Alpa ayush have been detailed above. The method of determining the maraka planet has also
been given in the previous sloka. How to reconcile the former with the latter? If, as per yogas, the longevity is more and the
planets causing the yoga are fairly strong, whilst the Major Period of a maraka planet selected as per the previous sloka occurs
earlier, the latter indication will go in vain and the native will enjoy the longevity conferred by the yoga.
Death, when?
Death will not occur in a planet's own sub-period Swa-bukti, but in the sub-period of a benefic; failing that a malefic in conjunction with
the maraka planet.
If lords of 12 and 8th are faily strong and if they happen to be marakas, they alone cause death in their own sub-periods. If they are weak,
they will not cause death; instead diseases to relatives, diseases to native, loss of finance, fear from enemies, King/Govt, thieves, fear
from spirits and allied troubles will occur. Death can occur in the first Major Period of a native if it happens to be that of lord of 8th in 8th
or major period of lord of Asdt. For Cancer Asdt with Venus in there, Jupiter in Pisces, Moon in Gemini, Saturn who is in Scorpio will
become the Maraka. That is to say, death will occur in Saturn's Major Period in spite
of the yoga arising by reason of Venus in Ascendant and Jupiter in 9th, with Jupiter's aspect on Venus and Ascendant. So far, methods of
determining longevity based on saying of sages like Maharshi Parashara have been given. According to Maharshi Jaimini, lord of 8th or
malefic in 8th or RUDRA are marakas.
Longevity
If there is a wall, pictures can be painted on it. Likewise, good
and bad yogas in a horoscope can be enjoyed/suffered only if
there is longevity. So determine longevity first in a
horoscope.
Yogas for marriage and birth of children, if they exist strongly,
some times even if longevity is poor, the former may be taken up
as a clue for greater longevity than that indicated.
Longevity of a native is to be decided with reference to planets,
Yogas and their various qualities/strength; and with the blessings
of the Lord and the Sages, correct longevity can be determined.
Chapter IX
Bhagya Bhava
9th House
Benefic/Malefic
with reference to Lordship
Lords of trines are benefics; if lords of trines happen to possess additional lordship over 3, 6, or 11, such planets are not as good benefics
as lords of trines. In other words, a planet having lordship over a trine and 3,6, or 11 will also confer some amount of malefic effects.
Full Moon is 100% benefic.
Kendradipatya Dosha
Jupiter and Venus with lordship over quadrants do not confer benefic results, by virtue of Kendradipatya Dosha (evil possessed by a
benefic by reason of its lordship over a quadrant).
Full Moon with lordship over a quadrant gets the least or minimal Kendradipatya Dosha.
Next, in the ascending order is Mercury with lordship over a quadrant, if Mercury is not connected with malefics.
Jupiter with lordship over a quadrant acquires greater Kendradipafya Dosha than Mercury.
Venus gets this evil greater than Jupiter.
Weak Moon, Mercury conjunct with malefic(s), Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu & Ketu having lordship over quadrants confer benefic results.
A planet owning Ascendant and 8th (simultaneously) e.g. Mars with Aries as Ascendant, Venus with Libra as Ascendant,
will also confer benefic effects. For Libra Ascendant, Venus will confer slight malefic effects by reason of a benefic owning a
quadrant and 8th, besides benefic effects as lord of Asdt. Not so for Mars with Aries as Ascendant, for he owns Aries as lord
of Asdt, and as a malefic owning a quadrant confers more benefic effects compared to Venus for Libra Ascendant.
Quantum of Benefic Effects
Lord of 9th in exaltation, own house or 10th confers full benefic effects including property, fitness for public life, reputation, prosperity,
Kingly life etc. 50% benefic results as above will be realised if lord of 9th is in Asdt, 4th or 9th or in friendly house; 25% of similar
effects if posited in 2, 3, 7 or 11; 12.5% effects in 6, 8 or 12 or debilitation or enemy house.
Lord of 10th in exaltation, own house or 9th/friendly sign indicates that the native will reap full benefic effects professionally. If lord of
10th is posited in friendly house which happens to be Asdt, 4th or 5th, only 50% of such effects will be reaped; 25% effects in 2, 3, 7 or
111 12.5% in 6, 8 or 12 or debilitation or enemy house.
Further benefic effects and their greatness/superiority will be proportionate to the good deeds done by the native.
Rahu/Ketu and Lords of 2nd/12th
Lord of 2nd and lord of 12th will confer effects of like nature as their dispositor or the planet in conjunction with.
For Rahu/Ketu also in a similar fashion. With reference to the two lordships of Mars, if Mars is pronounced as malefic, only

malefic results can be expected. Malefic Mars with lordship over 10th will yield malefic results only. When Mars owns 10th
along with lordship of trines, for Cancer Ascendant, benefic results will occur.
Raja Yoga
The union of lords of 9th and 10th produces Raja Yoga is accepted by all.
Where there is exchange of signs between lords of 9th and 10th, in spite of one of the planets owning 3,6,8, 11 or 12th, a
high class Raja Yoga will be realised, but where there is no such exchange of signs and lords of 9/10 own 3,6,8, 11 or 12th,
Raja Yoga effects will not materialise.
In this context, it should be borne in mind that in the above case, even though Raja Yoga does not materialise, the planet with
lordship over 9/10th and without lordship over 3,6,8,11 or 12th, will still remain the significator for Raja Yoga.
Even for Aries Ascendant, lords of 9th & 10th, i.e. Saturn and Jupiter, despite their lordship over 11th for Saturn and 12th
for Jupiter, if Saturn is in Sagittarius and Jupiter in debilitation in Capricorn, there will arise a Raja Yoga, though
comparatively it may not be as nice as those occurring for other Ascendants.
Mere combination of these two lords (9th and 10th) will not produce Raja Yoga.
Perhaps a hint is thrown in the above sloka that exchange of signs between planets is superior to conjunction in a sign.
For Leo and Aquarius ascendants, Venus and Mars, respectively, have lordship over 10th but they are considered malefics due to their
lordship over 3rd.
Mercury and Jupiter for Capricorn and Cancer ascendants, are considered malefics due to their lordship over 6th.
In spite of the above remarks, if there is exchange of signs between lords of 9th and 10th, there is bound to be some amount of
Raja Yoga. In such an event, the evil due to lordship over a dusthana (6, 8 or 12) or 3, 11 gets reduced.
For Taurus Ascendant, Saturn is for all purposes a benefic.
Lord of 5th in conjunction with lord of 10th is also a significator for Raja Yoga. The effects of the Raja Yoga will always be
proportionate to the strength of the significator.
Raja Yoga Effects When?
Lords of 3, 6, 8, 11 and 12 are malefics. If any of these lords get connected with benefics or Raja Yoga Karakas, in the Major Period of
the lords of 3,6, 8, 11 or 12, but in the sub-period of the benefic who is in conjunction with the former, the Raja Yoga effects will be
realised.
If a benefic stands in conjunction with a Yoga Karaka planet, in the Major Period of the latter and in the sub-period of the
former, the benefic results will be reaped.
If there is union between strong planets owning quadrants and trines, Raja Yoga arises. Amongst these, union between lords of 4-5, and
10-5 cause Raja Yoga.
The Raja Yoga effects arising due to lords of quadrant and trine will materialise in their Major Periods but in the sub-periods of
benefics who are not connected with the significators (Karakas) of the Raja Yoga. If there are more than one such sub-period,
the strongest should be preferred.
Rahu/Ketu standing in quadrants and conjoining with trine lord or vice-versa, also produce Raja Yoga.
Connection of lords of 8th or 11th would, to an extent, lessen the effects produced by Raja Yoga caused by
union of lords of 9th & 10th.
Such Raja Yoga effects start materialising during the sub-period of maraka in the Major Period of the Raja Yoga karaka planet.
In sub-periods of malefics (in latter's major period) the effects will be in peak. In sub-periods of benefics not connected with
the Raja Yoga there will be middling results.
Rahu and Ketu posited in auspicious houses and becoming Yoga karakas, if not conjunct with other planets, confer their
benefic effects during their own sub-periods.
Effects of Sub-period
If lord of major period (maha dasa) is a malefic, there will be mixed effects in sub-period of a benefic in conjunction with the lord of
major period; and very bad results in the sub-period of a malefic in conjunction with lord of major period. In sub-period of benefic who is
not connected with lord of major period (who is a malefic), there will be some benefic effects.
In sub-periods of lords of trines occurring in major periods of lords of quadrants or vice-versa, there will be much happiness, provided
that such lords of quadrant/trine are not owning 3, 6, 11 or 12th or connected with their lords.
Effects of Major Period
Effects conferable by the lord of major period are never realised in their own sub-periods but in the sub-periods of planets connected in
some way with the lord of the major period.
Maraka Evil for Jupiter & Venus
Jupiter and Venus with lordship over quadrants and standing in maraka sthanas become greater marakas. This applies to Mercury and
Moon as well, bot not so seriously.
When Sun and Moon are highly benefic, they do not become marakas.
Major Period Effects
A planet in debilitation which happens to be 6,8 or 12th will
confer very bad effects in its major period; but a planet in
debilitation which happens to be 1, 2, 3, 4 or 11th will confer
benefic results also to some extent.
In benefic sub-period occurring in major period of a benefic,
there will always be benefic results, and a mixture in sub-periods
of malefics.
In benefic sub-period occurring in major period of a malefic,
there will be bad results in the first half and good results in the
second.
In major period of a maraka planet connected with a trine, there will be only bad effects. Lordship over trine will go a waste, if
the planet happens to be in 2nd/7th. A maraka planet in 6th, 7th or 9th will confer good effects during its major period.
Sub-period Effects
There will be financial losses, fear from King/Govt, thieves and
fire and loss of relatives in sub-periods whose lords stand in
6th/8th of the major period lord.
In the sub-period of a malefic in the 8th of a major period lord,
there will be fear of theft, fear from King/Govt, fire and water,
upset of health and financial losses.
In the sub-period of a benefic in the 8th of a major period lord,
there will be good effects in first half and bad effects in the
second.
In major period of Rahu in 9th, there will be loss of father,

10

financial loss, change in environments, adversities for relatives


etc.
Mercury and Jupiter together in the 7th indicate Raja Yoga;
Rahu and Jupiter together but aspected by benefic, same
result.
Major Period Effects
During the major period of lord of 11th standing in quadrants, the native will be acquiring costly things, enjoy much gain etc.
Raja Yoga
A high class Raja Yoga arises if Moon is standing on Rohini 4th
constellation, aspected by Venus whilst malefics stand in 3. 6, or
11.
Exchange of signs between lords of Asdt and 2nd indicates that
the native will be supporting a thousand people.
Mercury, Venus and Jupiter all three together in 7th indicates
Raja Yoga. Lord of 9th in 2nd with Moon also indicates Raja
Yoga.
Major Period Effects based on Avasthas
There are 10 kinds of avasthas for the planets. The effects produced by planets in their respective major periods will be
dependent on the avastha enjoyed by it at the time of birth, which is signified by the name pf avastha as shown below :1. Swastha Avastha

There is a further avastha called Sakta Avastha which applies to planets which are strong. Planets which are strong in Rasi and Bhava are
said
to enjoy this Avastha. Good deeds, reputation and increased happiness will prevail in their major periods.
Significations of 9th House
The 9th house signifies Preceptor, father, Ishta Devata (family deity), luck and prosperity. Therefore, if the lord of 9th and the 9th house
have benefic connections, the native will have particularly good luck and prosperity.
Father's Death When?
Father's death and performance of obsequies in that connection
should be predicted in the sub-period of maraka planet or lord of
10th in the major period of malefic conjunct lord of 9th.
For Aries and Cancer Ascendants, death of father is possible
in the major period of Jupiter who is in dusthana (6, 8 or 12) with
aspect of a malefic.
Father's death is also possible in major periods of significator for
father posited in dusthanas (6, 8 or 12) or malefic in conjunction
with the significator for father.
Father of the native should be presumed to have died before
birth if lord of 9th and significator are conjointly standing in 9 or 5
connected with lords of dusthana or enemy or malefic.

lords of 4th and 9th ar together with connection of strong
malefic(s).
Son Greater Than Father
