GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO JAIMINI "RASHI-DASHAS" : Unlike traditional Parashari system, the reckoning in Jaimini system is sometimes in usual "zodiacal" order, while at some other times it is in "reversed" order. It is perhaps this characteristic nicety of the system - which makes some of the learners pretty nervous, or confused, or even afraid. But if a person is really endowed with an alert mind, sharp intelligence, retentive memory, and capacity to concentrate, then with some years' of profound studies and practical experience, he/ she can develop a fairly good insight, and look forward to becoming fully capable of handling the horoscopes quite easily. But it deserves mentioning here that one must not expect to master the subject in double-quick fashion and vini-vidi-vici style; if anybody tries to do so, then he/ she should rather remember the well-known and meaningful word - which Napoleon had struck out from his dictionary. There are as many as 42 Dasha-systems in Jaimini Astrology. A good many of them are not only workable, but also can be confidently depended upon for arriving at the timings of all major and important events of life. These Dasha-systems are neither 'conditional' nor horoscope-specific - that is, these can be very easily and highly advantageously used for any horoscope with a great degree of confidence, and perfectly satisfying results could be obtained quite easily. Excepting the Dashas of the "Karaka Dasha" class - wherein the Dashas are of Signs and Planets both, in most of the Jaimini Dasha-systems, the Dashas (and obviously the Bhuktis and the Antaras) are of Signs (and not of Planets). These Dasha-systems basically differ from the more popularly used traditional Parashari* Dasha-systems (of course, except in case of K.C.D.* or Kala-Chakra Dasha) - as therein the Dashas are of Planets (and not of Signs). [ *N.B. : Detailed information about Kala-Chakra Dasha have been provided under appropriate heading. ] Jaimini Rashi-Dashas are not dependent on the Longitude of Moon : Another important difference with the Parashari Dashas is that, in case of Jaimini RashiDashas, the reckoning is not dependent on the Longitude of Moon, and there is no "Balance of Dasha at Birth". The reckoning is rather directly or indirectly dependent on the "Ascendant" instead. The durations of the Dashas are "fixed" in some cases (as in Sthira Dasha/ Brahma-Graha Dasha, Mandooka Dasha/ Trikuta Dasha), whereas somewhere else (as in Chara Dasha/ Trikona Dasha, Atma-Karaka Dasha/ Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha), the durations are "variable". But in both the cases of these two classes, the durations of the Dashas are always in terms of a certain number of *'full' years (*however, there is a single exception: in case of Yogardha Dasha, the duration may include 'half' year also). The Duration of Dashas, Bhuktis & Antaras in Jaimini Rashi Dashas : The durations of Jaimini Chara Dasha and Jaimini Trikona Dasha can range from 1 year

(minimum) to 12 years (maximum); the durations of Jaimini Sthira Dasha and Jaimini Brahma Graha Dasha can range from 7 year (minimum) to 9 years (maximum); the durations of Jaimini Mandooka Dasha and Jaimini Trikuta Dasha also can range from 7 year (minimum) to 9 years (maximum); the durations of Jaimini Atma-Karaka Dasha and Jaimini Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha can range from 7 year (minimum) to 12 years (maximum). For "Timing of Events" by using the Jaimini Rashi-Dashas, the very best of results can only be obtained when - regardless of the Dasha-duration - the Bhuktidurations are taken as to be of 1 year each. As such, when the Dasha-duration is of 12 years - which can happen in rare cases in some Jaimini Dashas like Chara Dasha, Trikona Dasha, etc; but it can never happen in case of Sthira Dasha, Brahma Graha Dasha, Mandooka Dasha, Trikuta Dasha, etc - all the signs will not have their Bhuktis in a particular Dasha. The numerical figure of Dasha-duration (in years) will indicate the number of Bhuktis. The Antara-durations are always of 1 month each - in any Bhukti in any Dasha. As such, all the signs will surely have their Antaras in any Bhukti in any Jaimini Rashi-Dasha. The Sequence of Rashi-Bhuktis : The sequence of Bhuktis in any Rashi-Dasha is found in the same manner. It always commences from the sign in which the lord of the Dasha-sign is placed; then : (i) If the lord of the Dasha-sign is situated in an "odd" sign, then the succession of Bhuktis are in "zodiacal" order - beginning from the commencing sign. But, (ii) If the lord of the Dasha-sign is situated in an "even" sign, then the succession of Bhuktis are in "reversed" order - beginning from the commencing sign. The Sequence of Rashi-Antaras : The sequence of Antaras in any Rashi-Bhukti is also found in the same manner. It always commences from the sign in which the lord of the Bhukti-sign is placed; then : (i) If the lord of the Bhukti-sign is situated in an "odd" sign, then the succession of Antaras are in "zodiacal" order - beginning from the commencing sign. But, (ii) If the lord of the Bhukti-sign is situated in an "even" sign, then the succession of Antaras are in "reversed" order - beginning from the commencing sign. Reckoning of Aspects as per Jaimini principles : While finding "Timing of Events" by using any Jaimini Rashi Dasha, the "Aspects" are always of Signs (and not of Planets). As the "Aspects" as used in Jaimini Astrology are different from the "Aspects" as used in traditional Parashari Astrology, for avoiding possible confusion and maintaining distinction, I have coined the term "Jaspects" for denoting Jaimini Aspects. ... Jaimini Aspects are different from the Tajaka Aspects also (which is used in Varshaphala and also in Prashna); for the latter, owing to the very same reason, I have coined the term "Taspects". The Jaimini Aspects are of two kinds : (i) Frontal, and (ii) Lateral. Although this does not always make much of difference during delineation of results, this is to be borne in mind that the "frontal" jaspects are relatively stronger in influence - in comparison to the 'lateral' ones.

Importance of the "Argalas" (if present) : The "Argalas" (Mukhya, Gouna, and Vishesha) and 'Virodha-Argalas' are of special importance for delineation of results in Jaimini Astrology. Importance of the "Karakas" : The "Karakas" (in most cases, as per "Sapta-Karaka" system) are also considered important. The sign in which the Atma-Karaka is placed is considered to have gained some 'additional' strength for it. Among the other Karakas, the most important is "AmatyaKaraka" - which is considered for Profession (Service/ Business); 'Dara-Karaka' is considered for Marriage, and so on. Importance of the "Padas" : The "Padas" (or Arudhas) of Houses (which correspond to as many signs away from the Ascendant, as they are from the Ascendant) also of considerable influence in Jaimini Astrology. ... Incidentally, I wish to mention it here that the "Houses" in Jaimini Astrology corresponds the respective 'Signs' - beginning from the Ascendant-sign. Noting the combined influence of Jupiter & Mercury (if there) : If in a particular chart, any sign is found under the joint influence of Jupiter and Mercury that is, both are conjoined in the sign, or one of them is situated in the sign - while the other jaspects it, or both of these two planets are jaspecting it, then also the strength of the sign becomes enhanced for providing favorable results in general. It will be more so if at least one of the planets become the lord of a concerned house, while the other planet becomes the particular "Karaka" (as per Sapta-Karaka) having the same/ similar indications. Looking for the presence of Kartari Yogas (if any) : For presence of Kartari Yoga, one or more planet/s should be situated in both the 2nd and the 12th - as reckoned from the sign. If one or more natural benefic planet/s is/ are situated in both the places as reckoned from the sign - while no natural malefic planet is situated in either of these two places, then the sign is under "Subha Kartari Yoga". It is indicative of favorable results and auspicious happenings - during the period of the sign, which is under such influence. But if one or more natural malefic planet/s is/ are situated in both the places as reckoned from the sign - while no natural benefic planet is situated in either of these two places, then the sign is under "Papa Kartari Yoga". It is indicative of unfavorable results and inauspicious happenings - during the period of the sign, which is under such influence. The 4th and the 8th positions from a sign are 'crucial' places : The 4th and the 8th positions from a sign are crucial places, and if planets of 'similar' nature are situated in such places - as reckoned from the sign - exerts their characteristic influences on the sign, which manifests during the period of such sign. The influences are somewhat similar to the respective Kartari Yoga (as mentioned above). Thus if one or more natural benefic planet/s are situated in both the places as reckoned from the sign - while no natural malefic planet is situated in either of these two places, then it is indicative of favorable results and auspicious happenings - during the period of

the sign, which is under such influence. But if one or more natural malefic planet/s are situated in both the places as reckoned from the sign - while no natural benefic planet is situated in either of these two places, then it is indicative of unfavorable results and inauspicious happenings - during the period of the sign, which is under such influence. Looking for the presence of "Repeat Patterns" : In any chart, the Ascendant-lord is situated in some sign - which corresponds to certain house as per the sign-count in usual "zodiacal" order. If from any sign (other than the Ascendant), the same combination is found, then the "pattern" of the horoscope may be considered to have been "repeated". During the period of the sign (Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara), the significations of that particular house - as denoted by the sign-count - is likely to gain some prominence. An illustration would make the learner's comprehension clearer : Suppose, the Ascendant is Leo, the Sun is in Taurus, Venus is in sign Cancer, Saturn is in sign Libra, etc. ... Now, up to this part of the chart is relevant for our discussion here. In this horoscope, we see that the Ascendant-lord (Sun) is situated in the 10th from it. As such, it may be said to be the "pattern" of this horoscope. ... We find that the same pattern is "repeated" in case of sign Libra (as the sign-lord Venus is situated in the 10th from it), and also in case of sign Capricorn (as the sign-lord Saturn is situated in the 10th from it). ... So, during the Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara of signs Libra and/ or Capricorn, we should check for the presence of harmonious 'inter-relationship' among the 10th-lords (as reckoned from the relevant signs - DS, BS, AS, and the Ascendant). It should however be borne in mind that just by glancing at the "repeat pattern", the viewer must not jump up, and arrive at a premature conclusion that during the periods of such signs, some happening pertaining to the 10th house is sure to happen; actually, it may not happen at all in case if the essential requisite - the inter-relationship - is not found to be present. In the event of virtual absence of the most vital requisite - the harmonious 'interrelationship' among the lords of the signification house (as reckoned from DS, BS, AS, and Ascendant) - although the indications can not be construed as to be 'confirmatory', still the presence of the "repeat pattern" may be considered to be an useful 'pointer', which attracts the attention of the viewer in a particular direction - that can be obtained from the horoscope simply at a glance. Importance of some Divisional charts & different methods of reckoning for 'female' natives : The combinations of "Yogas" (or planetary combinations) are considerably different in Jaimini Astrology. For delineation of results, only the Yogas as per Jaimini principles are utilized. (The learners should not over-enthusiastically try in vain to mix up the commonly found and easily remembered Parashari Yogas like Budhaditya, Gaja-Keshari, Pancha Maha-Purusha, etc with Jaimini system). ... Some divisional charts are used in Jaimini Astrology for this purpose. Of them, the most important are : (i) Drekkana chart, and (ii) Navamsha chart. It should be noted that the method of reckoning of these divisional charts vary depending on the 'gender' of the native; the methods of reckoning may remain the same for 'male' persons; but these surely become different for "female" persons : If the native is "female", then : (i) Somanath's method is to be followed for reckoning of 'Drekkana'. (Whereas, for 'male' people, the traditional method itself is used).

(ii) Krishna Mishra's method is to be followed for reckoning of 'Navamsha'. (Whereas, for 'male' people, the traditional method itself is used). Some additional divisional charts also find useful utilization in Jaimini Astrology - which are normally not used in traditional Parashari Shodash Varga System (Consisting of the main Lagna-Kundali and 15 different divisional charts). These are Ekadashamsha or Rudramsha (D-11), Panchamsha (D-5), Shashtamsha (D-6), Ashtamamsha (D-8), etc. Certain Rashi-Dashas are applicable only to certain Divisional Charts : It is of interest to note that certain Jaimini Rashi-Dasha Systems are applicable to certain Divisional Charts. Thus, Mandooka Dasha is applicable to Ekadashamsha or Rudramsha (D-11) charts; for maintaining distinction, it is referred to as Rudra-Mandooka Dasha. In this Dasha, a planet gains specialty by virtue of becoming the 'Hara' - which has usefulness for delineation of results in Mandooka Dasha (which is preferred for female persons) and also in Trikuta Dasha (which is preferred for male persons). Jaimini Chara Dasha - as per the method of Raghava Bhatta & Nrisimha Suri - is applicable to Navamsha charts - which is drawn as per Krishna Mishra's method in case of 'female' natives (and in traditional ways for male natives). This new form of Dasha is termed as PadaNathAmsha Dasha, with the only difference that the durations are taken in terms of 'Nakshatra' years @ 324 days/ year). Approximately, at the periods around which one PNA Rashi-Dasha ends and another one starts, some distinct change of influences are observed. The PNA Rashi-Dasha in Navamsha charts, and the Jaimini Chara Dasha (as per RB-NS method) in "NadiAmsha"* charts can be depended upon for finding some auspicious events like Foreign Journey/ Travel (among various other interesting events of life). Jaimini Chara Dasha is perfectly applicable to "Nadi-Amsha"* charts also : The Nadis are very minute divisions of signs; these are 150 in number, and are of unequal span. A typical chart termed as Nadi-Amsha chart can be formed by considering the constitutional nature of the signs (chara, sthira or ubhaya) and the corresponding Nadi-number for the respective positions of the planets (Sun to Ketu) and the Ascendant. In this chart, Rahu and Ketu will always remain in the same sign, and the disposition of this particular sign gains importance (of course, among various others) for delineation of results. If the Time of Birth is known very correctly, and due checking is done for ascertaining whether very slight adjustment is needed for it's "rectification" or not, then these "NadiAmsha" charts (which have no resemblance to the Lagna-Kundali or any divisional chart) can be effectively used for delineation of the nature of results (and also for finding the "Timing of Events" with accuracy and precision). ... The "Antaras" of 1 month's duration (which can be quite easily found by following the same set of principles - as is normally followed in case of judging from Lagna-Kundali) will be the unit for timing of events; and the timings for a series of events can easily be found one after another with precision and accuracy. Similarities and Differences among the various "Classes" of Jaimini Rashi-Dashas : (1) Chara Dasha Class :

Jaimini Chara Dasha (JCD) and Jaimini Trikona Dasha (JTD) belong to this class. In case of Jaimini Chara Dasha (JCD), as per the method* of Raghava Bhatta & Nrisimha Suri (RB-NS method), the commencing Rashi-Dasha becomes different depending on the 'gender' of the native : (a) For 'male' persons, the commencing Rashi-Dasha is always of the Ascendant-sign. (b) For 'female' persons, there are two options : (i) if the Ascendant-sign is "odd", then the commencement is from the 4th-sign as reckoned from the Ascendant-sign. But, (ii) if the Ascendant-sign is "even", then the commencement is from the 10th-sign as reckoned from the Ascendant-sign. In case of Jaimini Trikona Dasha (JTD), as per the method of Raghava Bhatta & Nrisimha Suri (RB-NS method), the strongest sign among the Ascendant, the 5th from it, and the 9th from it. Then the commencing Rashi-Dasha becomes different depending on the 'gender' of the native : (a) For 'male' persons, the commencing Rashi-Dasha is always of the strongest sign (among the three signs - as mentioned above). (b) For 'female' persons, there are two options : (i) if the Ascendant-sign is "odd", then the commencement is from the 4th-sign as reckoned from the strongest sign (among the three signs - as mentioned above). But, (ii) if the Ascendant-sign is "even", then the commencement is from the 10th-sign as reckoned from strongest sign (among the three signs - as mentioned above). It can thus be seen that if the Ascendant-sign becomes the strongest sign (among the three signs - as mentioned above), then Jaimini Chara Dasha (JCD) and Jaimini Trikona Dasha (JTD) will become exactly identical. However, in most cases (roughly 2 cases out of 3, or about 67%), these two will be different. In such cases, Jaimini Trikona Dasha (JTD) will be different from Jaimini Chara Dasha (JCD). For timing of some auspicious events like marriage and childbirth, Trikona Dasha (JTD) often offers better results than Chara Dasha (JCD) - this has been observed to be more so in case of 'female' persons. [ SPECIAL NOTE : There is another method - known as Neelkantha's method* for reckoning of Jaimini Chara Dasha; It is based on Oja-pada/ Visama-pada signs, and in this system the set-up of the Dashas and their durations become different. In this method, the divisions and sub-divisions are also different. But as for the purpose of narrowrange 'timing of events', this method has not been found to be at all dependable, I have deliberately avoided any discussion about this particular method, and it's use for 'timing of events'. ] The Duration of Dashas : The duration of Dashas in both Jaimini Chara Dasha (JCD) and Jaimini Trikona Dasha are reckoned in the same way. The durations are variable, and are dependent on the

placement of the sign-lord with reference to the sign. Excepting the two special cases mentioned in following - as per Cond (i) and (ii), the duration depends on the count from the sign-lord to the sign - as per Cond (iii) (a) and (b). The mode of counting however varies depending upon whether the lord of the Dasha-sign is situated in an "odd" sign or "even" sign : (i) If the sign-lord is situated in own-sign in that very sign itself , then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 12 years., Else, (ii) If the sign-lord is situated in the opposite sign (that is, in the 7th from it), then the Dasha- duration of the sign is 10 years., Else, (iii) It will be dependent on the sign-count from the placement of the sign-lord to the sign : (a) If the sign-lord is situated in an "odd" sign, then the signCount will be in "zodiacal" order - from the sign-lord to the sign, and the duration of the Dasha will be = (SignCount 1) year/s. But, (b) If the sign-lord is situated in an "even" sign, then the SignCount will be in "reversed" order - from the sign-lord to the sign, and the duration of the Dasha will be = (SignCount 1) year/s. Thus, the durations of any sign in either of these two Dasha-systems can range from 1 year (minimum) to 12 years (maximum). AN "ALTERNATE" METHOD OF J.C.D. DIVISIONS & SUB-DIVISIONS : For Jaimini Chara Dasha, there is another interesting method of divisions and subdivisions. In this method, the Dasha duration is first divided into 3 equal parts - in terms of "Drekkanas" of the sign. These divisions may be termed as CD (as C in English is the 3rd letter). Each of these divisions may further be divided into 10 equal parts - in terms of "Dashamamsha" of the sign. These divisions may be termed as XD (as X in Roman = 10). Each of these divisions may further be divided into 12 equal parts - in terms of "Dwadashamsha" of the sign. These divisions may be termed as LD (as L in English is the 12th letter). ... Thus, every Dasha will be subdivided into 3 * 10 * 12 = 360 equal divisions. As the duration of a JCD can be from 1 year (minimum) to 12 years (maximum), the minute sub-divisions in this method will be from 1 day (minimum) to 12 days (maximum). This will be the "unit" for timing of events. If someone gains some experience for finding "inter-relationships" between the MDS (Main Dasha sign), CDS (Drekkana sign), XDS (Dashamamsha sign), LDS (Dwadashamsa sign). Drekkana divisions of Signs (CDS) : There will be 3 equal divisions. The first part is the sign itself, then the second part is the 5th sign from it, then the third part is the 9th sign from it. The order of succession will be in usual "zodiacal" order. Dashamamsha divisions of Signs (XDS) : If the Drekkana Sign (CDS) is "odd", then the 10 equal divisions will commence from the CDS. But if the Drekkana Sign (CDS) is "even", then the 10 divisions will commence from the 9th sign from the CDS. The order of succession will be in usual "zodiacal" order. Dwadashamsha divisions of Signs (LDS) the 12 equal divisions will commence from the

XDS. The order of in succession is usual "zodiacal" order. (2) Sthira Dasha Classes : (2). (a). Main Class: Jaimini Sthira Dasha (JSD) and Brahma Graha Dasha (BGD) belong to this class. In case of Jaimini Sthira Dasha (JSD) also, the commencing Rashi-Dasha becomes different depending on the 'gender' of the native : (a) For 'male' persons, the commencing Rashi-Dasha is always of the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant-sign and the 7th from it. (b) For 'female' persons, there are two options : (i) if the Ascendant-sign is "odd", then the commencement is from the "stronger" sign between the and the 4th and the 7th from the Ascendant-sign. But, (ii) if the Ascendant-sign is "even", then the commencement is from the "stronger" sign between the and the 10th and the 7th from the Ascendant-sign. In case of Brahma Graha Dasha, it commences from the sign occupied by the BrahmaGraha* (Upon fulfilling certain specific conditions, a particular planet becomes the Brahma-Graha in a particular chart). Now, Brahma-Graha planet might be situated in any sign - including the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant and the 7th from it. As such, in some cases (approximately 1 in 12, or 8.33%), Sthira Dasha and Brahma Graha Dasha will become identical. But in most cases, these two Dasha set-ups will be different. The Duration of Dashas : These are the same as in Mandooka Dasha (and Trikuta Dasha), here the durations are "fixed" - depending on the constitutional nature of the signs : (i) If the sign is Chara (movable), then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 7 years., (ii) If the sign is Sthira (fixed), then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 8 years., and (iii) If the sign is Ubhaya (common), then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 9 years. The Order of Succession in Jaimini Sthira Dasha and Brahma Graha Dasha : (i) In case of 'male' natives, commencing from the stronger sign, it proceeds in regular succession in "zodiacal" order if the commencing sign is "odd"; it proceeds in regular succession in "reversed" order if the commencing sign is "even". And, (ii) In case of 'female' natives, commencing from the stronger sign, it proceeds in regular succession in "reversed" order if the commencing sign is "odd"; it proceeds in regular succession in "zodiacal" order if the commencing sign is "even". Special usefulness of Jaimini Sthira Dasha and Brahma Graha Dasha :

Sthira Dasha is probably the very best of all Jaimini Dasha-systems for finding information about health and disease, possibility of accidental mishaps, longevity (of self, and also of close relatives like those of parents, spouse, etc), and the like. But when these two Dasha set-ups are different, Brahma Graha Dasha becomes a relatively better indicator for possible unfavorable happenings of more serious sort - like possibility of getting into disputes with the punitive authorities, or troubles from hardcore criminals or sworn enemies, etc. (2). (b). Auxiliary Class: Jaimini Mandooka Dasha and Jaimini Trikuta Dasha belong to this class. In case of Mandooka Dasha, the commencing Rashi-Dasha is of the "strongest" sign among the Ascendant, the 5th from it, and the 9th from it. In case of Trikuta Dasha, the commencing Rashi-Dasha is of the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant and the 7th from it. But in both the cases, the order of succession varies - depending on the 'gender' of the native : *** SPECIAL NOTE : If between the two trinal signs (the 5th, and the 9th), only one sign is occupied by one or more planet/s, whereas the other sign remains unoccupied by any planet, then Mandooka Dasha will offer more dependable results. And, If each of the two signs of a pair of opposite signs (Ascendant & the 7th, or the 2nd & the 8th, or the 3rd & the 9th, etc), are occupied by one or more planet/s, then Trikuta Dasha will offer more dependable results. In case of Jaimini Mandooka Dasha : (i) In case of 'male' natives, commencing from the stronger sign, it proceeds to the "trines" in "zodiacal" order; like (1st*, 5th, 9th), then (2nd, 6th, 10th), then (3rd, 7th, 11th), then (4th, 8th, 12th). ... Here, the 1st does not necessarily mean the Ascendant; rather it is the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant and the 7th from it. And, (ii) In case of 'female' natives, commencing from the stronger sign, it proceeds to "trines" in "reversed" order; like (1st*, 9th, 5th), then (12th, 8th, 4th), then (11th, 7th, 3rd), then (12th, 8th, 4th). ... Here also, the 1st does not necessarily mean the Ascendant; rather it is the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant and the 7th from it. In case of Jaimini Trikuta Dasha : (i) In case of 'male' natives, commencing from the stronger sign, it proceeds to the "opposites" in "zodiacal" order - in a similar manner like Sthira Dasha; like (1st*, 7th), then (2nd, 8th), then (3rd, 9th), then (4th, 10th), then (5th, 11th), then (6th, 12th). ... Here, the 1st does not necessarily mean the Ascendant; rather it is the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant and the 7th from it. And, (ii) In case of 'female' natives, commencing from the stronger sign, it proceeds to the "opposites" in "reversed" order - in a similar manner like Sthira Dasha; like (1st*, 7th), then (12th, 6th), then (11th, 5th), then (10th, 4th), then (9th, 3rd), then (8th, 2nd). ... Here also, the 1st does not necessarily mean the Ascendant; rather it is the "stronger" sign between the Ascendant and the 7th from it.

Thus, it is quite obvious that Trikuta Dasha is merely a "re-arranged" form of Mandooka Dasha. The Duration of Dashas : These are the same as in Sthira Dasha (and in Brahma Graha Dasha), here the durations are "fixed" - depending on the constitutional nature of the signs : (i) If the sign is Chara (movable), then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 7 years., (ii) If the sign is Sthira (fixed), then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 8 years., and (iii) If the sign is Ubhaya (common), then the Dasha-duration of the sign is 9 years. Special Role of the "Hara"* Planet : The "Hara"* planet plays a very important role in delineation of results in Mandooka Dasha and Trikuta Dasha (Upon fulfilling certain specific conditions, a particular planet becomes the "Hara"* planet in a particular chart). It is considered for it's potential harmful effects. The Dasha/ Bhukti periods - as per Mandooka Dasha and Trikuta Dasha - of the sign in which the "Hara"* planet is placed may and can bring in serious problems and extreme difficulties. It might be more so if the Dasha is of the sign where the "Hara"* planet is situated - whereas the Bhukti is of the sign of the 8th-house, or if the Bhukti is of the sign where the "Hara"* planet is situated - whereas the Dasha is of the sign of the 8th-house. However, this combination does not invariably operate in all the charts - as some of the signs will not have their Bhukti-periods in a particular Dasha (All the Dashas of the Sthira Dasha class can have 7 or 8 or 9 Bhuktis only). If the 8th house-sign bears some out-of-ordinary affliction in any horoscope, then the Mandooka Dasha or Trikuta Dasha of the 8th house-sign can prove to be an extremely problematic period in a person's life. During such periods, the natives suffer from some unexpected difficulties, unforeseen causes, calamitous happenings which may prove to be ruinous - which may and can even change the course of a person's life. It is a 'pointer', which must attract the interest and attention of the students of Astrology - since in case of about 50% people, the Dasha-period of the 8th house-sign runs during a very vulnerable age-period - which may be termed as a period of 'transition', and the natives are apt to fall prey to temptations and "slip off the track"; consequently their course of life may even be entirely changed. For 'male' people, if the 7th is the "stronger" sign (between the Ascendant and the 7th from it), then : (i) If the Ascendant is a Chara (movable) sign, then the Trikuta Dasha of the 8th housesign will run for 8 years : from 15th year to 22nd year. (ii) If the Ascendant is a Sthira (fixed) sign, then the Trikuta Dasha of the 8th house-sign will run for 9 years : from 17th year to 25th year. (iii) If the Ascendant is a Ubhaya (movable) sign, then the Trikuta Dasha of the 8th housesign will run for 7 years : from 19th year to 25th year. (iv) If the Ascendant is a Chara (movable) sign, then the Mandooka Dasha of the 8th house-sign will run for 8 years : from 25th year to 32nd year. (v) If the Ascendant is a Sthira (fixed) sign, then the Mandooka Dasha of the 8th housesign will run for 9 years : from 25th year to 33rd year.

(vi) If the Ascendant is a Ubhaya (movable) sign, then the Mandooka Dasha of the 8th house-sign will run for 7 years : from 25th year to 31st year. For 'female' people, if the Ascendant is the "stronger" sign (between the Ascendant and the 7th from it), then : (i) If the Ascendant is a Chara (movable) sign, then the Mandooka Dasha of the 8th house-sign will run for 8 years : from 34th year to 41st year. (ii) If the Ascendant is a Sthira (fixed) sign, then the Mandooka Dasha of the 8th housesign will run for 9 years : from 32nd year to 40th year. (iii) If the Ascendant is a Ubhaya (movable) sign, then the Mandooka Dasha of the 8th house-sign will run for 7 years : from 33rd year to 39th year. As per traditional Astrological principles, the 8th-house is considered to be the house of marrital well-being (mangalya) in case of female natives. The age-period beginning from 32 or 33 or 34 and extending up to 39 or 40 or 41 is quite naturally a very important timeperiod in the married life. ... Now, if we want to ascertain what is there in store of the individual female native, we should judge the condition of the 8th house, and Jaimini Mandooka Dasha can be very advantageously used for finding the possible happenings during the period. As per traditional Astrological principles, the 8th-house is considered to be the house of accidental mishaps, untoward happenings, debacles in profession, etc - more so in case of male natives. The age-period beginning from 32 or 33 or 34 and extending up to 39 or 40 or 41 is quite naturally a very important time-period in the person's career. ... Now, if we want to ascertain what is there in store of the individual male native, we should judge the condition of the 8th house, and Jaimini Mandooka Dasha can be very advantageously used for finding the possible happenings during the period. As a rule, if the 8th-house is under 'Subha-Kartari Yoga', or if the 8th-house is occupied by the 8th-lord itself (or jaspected by it), or if an exalted planet is situated in it (or jaspects it), or if natural benefic planet/s is/ are situated in it (or jaspects it), or if the 8th-lord is situated either in it's exaltation sign or in own sign, then during this period of the 8th house-sign, only very favorable results can reasonably be looked forward to. Similarly, if the 8th-house is under 'Papa-Kartari Yoga', or if a debilitated planet is situated in it the 8th-house (or jaspected by it), or if natural malefic planet/s - which are neither exalted nor situated in in own sign or own star - is/ are situated in it (or jaspects it), or if the 8th-lord is situated either in it's debilitation sign, then during this period of the 8th house-sign, then unfavorable results of serious sort are very much likely to happen. When the influences are found to be of benefic planets and malefic planets both, then it goes without saying that only mixed influences will prevail. For ascertaining the precise nature of events, we also have to judge the Bhukti signs, and the inter-relationship between the similar house-lords - as reckoned from the Dasha-sign (DS), the Bhukti-sign (BS), and the Ascendant. If the 8th-lord and the 11th-lords are involved in "sign-exchange", and no modifying influences are present in the chart, then it can bring in grave dangers; the native can face serious problems from criminals, and/ or troubles from police. If one of the two planets is Mars, while the other planet is also a natural malefic, then it can be construed as a very confirmatory indication. If the 11th-lord in the 8th, or if the 8th-lord is in 11th (that is, it is not sign-exchange, but is an one way shifting only), then also the person may run the risk of becoming a victim of

the wrath of the authorities/ superiors, and may have to face many difficulties from various other sources. If out of the three dire malefic planets - Mars, Rahu, and Saturn - if two or more planets influence the 8th house-sign by being situated in or jaspecting it, and if these influencing planets are neither situated in exaltation sign or in own sign or in own star, and there are no modifying influences are not present in the chart, then serious difficulties may arise, and happiness in married life can be very badly affected. The intensity of the problems will be further heightened if the influencing planets are found to be retrograde. Jaimini Mandooka Dasha is applicable to a Divisional chart - the Ekadashamsha (D-11). As the chart is alternately called Rudramsha, for the purpose of differentiation, the new Mandooka Dasha set-up might be termed as "Rudra-Mandooka Dasha". By following the same set of principles, traditional Astrological logic and reasoning, this Dasha can be efficiently utilized for finding the nature of- and timing of- possible outcome in case of contests (like elections), law-suits, confiscations by punitive authorities, criminal or departmental proceedings, etc. In it, reference is to be made to the divisional chart (D-11) - and not to the Lagna Kundali. In this also, the unit of timing of event will be Antara which lasts for 1 month only. (3). Karaka Dasha class : Atma-Karaka Dasha and Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha belong to this class. These two Dasha systems are useful chiefly for finding the "prospects in the sphere of profession" for the persons who are actively engaged in profession, or are desirous to do so. (These Dasha systems will thus have hardly any use for the people like general housewives and other females - who are neither actively engaged in any profession, nor are at all desirous to do so). It is to be noted that the Atma-Karaka Dasha is the "main", the Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha is "auxiliary" to it. For timing of events, the Atma-Karaka Dasha is therefore more dependable. Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha periods indicate circumstantial advantages or lack of it. When the same/ similar indications and the same/ similar timings are obtained from both the Dasha systems, then the indications become very confirmatory. These two Dasha systems are combined periods of Signs and Planets - where both are of equal importance. If in a sign, there are two or more planets, then the same sign will appear as many times as there are planets in it - but every time the "co-significator" Planet will be different. If there are no planets in a sign, then it will not appear in the Dasha setup. Since in total there are 9 planets (Sun to Ketu), there will be 9 Dasha-periods in total in the set-up. Atma-Karaka Dasha commences from the sign occupied by the "Atma-Karaka"* planet in the chart. For finding the Atma-Karaka, "Ashta-Karaka" method (Sun to Rahu*) is to be followed. And, for comparing the Krishamshas of planets, Rahu's Krishamsha is to be taken as to be equal to it's sign-complement (that is, x = 30* - Krishamsha of Rahu). ... But the same process will not apply to any of the 'tara-grahas' (planets Mars to Saturn) - even if the planet is found to be 'retrograde'. Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha commences from the sign occupied by the "Upa-Karaka Graha"* planet in the chart. Although originally the term used in Jaimini Astrology is 'UpaGraha', since it is in fact neither a Sun-based UpaGraha (like Dhuma) nor a Weekday-based UpaGraha (like Gulika) - rather this is actually a planet (Sun to Saturn) using the term "Upa-Karaka Graha" is better and more meaningful.

In the two hemispheres in the chart (from the Ascendant point to Descenant point, and from the Descendant point to Ascendant), first it is found which planet has traversed most ahead in terms of signs. If two or more planets are found (in the same hemisphere or different hemisphere), then the planet who has traversed most in terms of Krishamsha becomes the "Upa-Karaka Graha". The Succession of Dashas : In both the systems vary depending on the 'gender' of the native. For male people, it is in the order of Kendra-Panaphara-Apoklima, while in case of female people, it is in the order of Kendra-Apoklima-Panaphara. (i) In case of male people, the succession is in "zodiacal" order. ... Thus it is Kendra (1-47-10), followed by Panaphara (2-5-8-11), then followed by Apoklima (3-6-9-12) houses beginning from their respective Commencing Sign. (ii) In case of female people, the succession is in "reversed" order. ... Thus it is Kendra (110-7-4), followed by Apoklima (12-9-6-3), then followed by Panaphara (11-8-5-2) houses beginning from their respective Commencing Sign. The Duration of Dashas : The position of the individual planets are counted severally from (i) the Ascendant, and (ii) the 7th house-sign. Out of the two counts, whichever count is found to be higher is taken as to be the Dasha-duration - in terms of years. Thus, if a planet is situated either situated in the Ascendant or in the 7th house-sign, then it's Dasha-duration will be 7 years (as that is the higher count between the two counts from the Ascendant, and from the 7th house-sign); this is the minimum possible duration. ... Similarly, if it is situated either situated in the 12th house-sign, or in the 6th house-sign, then it's Dasha-duration will be 12 years (as that is the higher count between the two counts - from the Ascendant, and from the 7th house-sign); this is the maximum possible duration. ... For any other position, the higher count will be anything between 8 and 11, and that respective figure in years will be the corresponding duration for the Dasha-period of that Sign & Planet combination. [ N.B. : A difference is to be noted and remembered that in case of Chara Dasha class (Jaimini Chara Dasha and Trikona Dasha), the variable duration of the Dashas = (SignCount - 1) in years; whereas in case of Karaka Dasha class (Atma-Karaka Dasha and Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha), the variable duration of the Dashas = SignCount in years. ] Certain Special Cases : If the same planet becomes the Atma-Karaka Graha and the Upa-Karaka Graha as well (which can happen in 1 in 7 cases, i.e., about 14% cases), or if the Atma-Karaka Graha happens to be Rahu while it is situated together with the Upa-Karaka Graha planet in the same sign (which can happen in 1 in 96 cases, i.e., about 1% cases), then these two Dasha set-ups will become identical. But in most cases, these two will become different. (1). When these two Dasha set-ups become different (as it happens in most cases), if the change of Dashas occur simultaneously in both the set-ups, and if the age-period is relevant for having onset of-, or change of-, profession, then that particular juncture period becomes a "landmark" in the person's career history, and an important and significant 'change' takes place. The actual timing of such a happening can further be

refined by taking the year on 'savana' basis (that is, @ 360 days/ year). Thus, if in a male person's chart (D.O.B. 13/ 06/ 1954), such a simultaneous change occurs at the age of 21 years, then the actual event-marking will be around the age of around [ 21 * ( 360/ 365.256363 ) = ] or around 20 y. 8 m. 11 d. By adding this age-period to D.O.B., we obtain a period around Date : 24/ 02/ 1975***. >>> The actual event : Joining in first Service was on : 01/ 03/ 1975***. (2). Another interesting thing is to be noted that when these two Dasha set-ups become different (as it happens in most cases), if the the Dasha of the same Sign and the same co-ruler Planet operates concurrently for a few years as per both the two systems, then the duration which is common to both the set-ups bring in some significant changes, and the native becomes very active and busy. The overall results to be experienced will of course depend on various relevant factors - the disposition of the Sign, the disposition of the Planet, planet/s situated in the sign (if any), and the planet/s jaspecting the sign (if any). Thus, if in a male person's chart, as per Atma-Karaka Dasha, Sagittarius (Mars) runs for 11 years : from 44th to 54th year, while as per Upa-Karaka Graha Dasha, the same Sagittarius (Mars) runs for 11 years : from 41st to 51st year, then the part of the period in common to both will be : from 44th to 51st year. ... During this period, the person will have some significant changes, and he will remain very active and busy. More Important Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara periods : In these two Dasha systems, the Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara periods of signs occupied by the 10th-lord, the 5th-lord, and the "Amatya-Karaka" planets produce favorable results. The periods of signs jaspected by any of these planets also give favorable results. Similar results are expected during the periods of signs whose lords are situated in the 10th or 5th from it, and also when such lords as considered from the Dasha-sign (DS), the Bhukti-sign (BS) and the Ascendant form harmonious inter-relationships. Understandably, if modifying influences are not present in the chart, then the Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara periods of sign occupied by the 8th-lord may and can produce quite unfavorable results. The periods of signs jaspected this planets also gives similar results. Similar results are expected during the periods of signs whose lord is situated in the 8th from it, or the 8th-lord from the sign is situated in it. If modifying influences are not present in the chart, then the periods of the sign whose lord is "retrograde" situated in the 10th or 5th from it may and can produce adverse results. ... This will be more so if the planet is Saturn, is in the 10th from the sign, and is "retrograde". Similar results are experienced during the periods of the sign if the 10th-lord or the 5thlord - as reckoned from the sign - is "retrograde", while it is situated in the sign. If two or more "retrograde" malefic planets - one of them being a Moon's node (Rahu or Ketu), and the other is a planet (Mars or Saturn or Sun) - are influencing a sign by their situation or jaspect, while no modifying influences are found to be present in the chart, then unfavorable results are expected during the periods of that particular sign.

The 10th-lord from the sign is situated in the 10th from the Ascendant : Cancer, Aquarius. The 5th-lord from the sign is situated in the 5th from the Ascendant : None. The 5th-lord from the Ascendant is situated in the 5th from the sign : Aries. The 10th-lord from the Ascendant (Jupiter) is situated in the 10th from sign : Leo. The 5th-lord from the Ascendant (Venus) is situated in the 10th from sign : Sagittarius. If from a sign, Sun remains in an angular or house (1 or 4 or 7 or 10), while Venus remains in a trinal or trikona house (1 or 5 or 9), then during the period (Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara), securing a promotion or getting a far more lucrative job can be looked forward to. ... In this chart, such sign is : Aries. [ Similarly, if from a sign, Venus remains in an angular or house (1 or 4 or 7 or 10), while Sun remains in a trinal or trikona house (1 or 5 or 9), then during the period (Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara), securing a promotion or getting a far more lucrative job can be looked forward to. ... In this chart, such sign is : Scorpio. ] JCD Aries Dasha was running for 11 years (from 10/ 08/ 1974 to 10/ 08/ 1985). Since from a sign, Sun remains in an angular or house (4th), while Venus remains in a trinal or trikona house (5th), then during the period (Dasha/ Bhukti/ Antara), securing an out-of-turn promotion or getting a far more lucrative job can be very reasonably expected. Leo Bhukti in JCD Aries Dasha was running for 1 year (from 10/ 08/ 1981 to 10/ 08/ 1982). The 10th-lord from BS Leo (Venus) - which happens to be the 5th-lord (= Rank) from the Ascendant also - is situated in the BS, whereas it is situated in the 5th from DS also. Besides, the 10th-lord from the Ascedant (Jupiter) is situated in the 10th from BS. Gemini Antara in Leo Bhukti in JCD Aries Dasha was running for 1 month (from 10/ 08/ 1981 to 10/ 09/ 1981). The 10th-lord from AS (Jupiter) is in the 10th from BS, while the 5th-lord from AS (Venus) is situated in the BS, which is the 5th from DS also. ... Thus, the time was undoubtedly very propitious for such a happening. The Actual Event : Secured an out-of-turn "Promotion" in Service : in September/ 1981. ... (Here too, there could be a time-lag of a few days' only - if the Promotion was secured after 10/ 09/ 1981). (7). Retirement from Service : on 30/ 08/ 2001. For "retirement" from Service, the significant sign is of : the 8th-house; while the most important planet is : the 8th-lord; and, among the planets, Saturn might be taken as the natural significator. The conjunction with-, the placement of-, and jaspects to-, of the 8thlords from the relevant signs (like DS, BS, and AS) should also be given due importance. ... In this chart, Saturn himself is the lord of the 8th from the Ascendant; therefore, it's placement-sign and the signs jaspected by it are of importance in this regard. In this chart, the 8th-lord Saturn is placed in sign : Taurus., and the signs jaspected by the 8th-lord Saturn are : Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

When the influence of the 8th house-sign or of the sign occupied by the 8th-lord is operating, the period of the 5th house-sign will be adverse (as the 5th = 8th from the 10th). In this chart, the 5th house-sign is Libra and the 5th-lord is Venus. JCD Taurus Dasha runs for 9 years (from 10/ 08/ 1999 to 10/ 08/ 2008). The 8th-lord from the Ascendant (Saturn) is situated in it - thereby highlighting the possibility. Libra Bhukti in JCD Taurus Dasha runs for 1 year (from 10/ 08/ 2001 to 10/ 08/ 2002). The 8th-lord from the Ascendant (Saturn) - who is the 5th-lord from the BS also - is jaspecting the BS; the 8th-lord from DS (Jupiter) and the 8th-lord from BS (Venus) are - these also highlight the possibility. ... It should also be noted that the BS (Libra) is the 5th-house-sign, jaspected by the 5th-lord (Venus). Leo Antara in Libra Bhukti in JCD Taurus Dasha runs for 1 month (from 10/ 08/ 2001 to 10/ 09/ 2001). The 8th-lord from AS (Jupiter) is situated in the 10th from AS - indicating retirement (= 8th) from Service (= 10th). Further, this 8th-lord from AS (Jupiter) is conjoined with the 8th-lord from Ascendant (Saturn), is situated in DS, and is jaspecting the BS therefrom; besides, the AS lord (Sun) is involved in mutual jaspect with both Jupiter and Saturn - these too highlight the possibility. The Actual Event : "Retirement" from Service : had been on 30/ 08/ 2001. ... (This falls well within the period - when it was very reasonable to expect). (8). Mother's demise happened : in January/ 1986. Mother is denoted by the 4th. Her health and well-being are denoted by the 8th from the 4th = the 11th. Loss of mother is indicated by the 12th from the 4th = the 3rd. ... During the periods of a sign, whose lord is situated in the 3rd from it (or the 3rd-lord from it is situated in it, or jaspects it), or whose lord is situated in the 11th from it (or the 11th-lord from it is situated in it, or jaspects it), the possibility of such happening increases. ... Moon is the natural significator for mother. If from the sign, Moon is found to be situated in the 11th or 3rd, then also the possibility of such happening is heightened during the period of the sign. So, the vulnerable periods (in respect of Mother's health and well-being) were of the following signs : The 8th-sign from the placement sign of the Natural significator (Moon) : Virgo. The Sign/s whose lord is situated in the 3rd from it : Pisces. The Sign/s where the lord of the 3rd from the sign is situated in Sign : Cancer, and Leo. The Sign/s whose lord is situated in the 11th from it : Libra. The Sign/s where the lord of the 11th from the sign is situated in Sign : Taurus. JCD Virgo Dasha was 10 years (from 10/ 08/ 1985 to 10/ 08/ 1995). The lord of DS Virgo (Mercury) is situated in the 11th from it. ... It should also be noted that the 8th-sign from the placement sign of Moon (the natural signifcator for Mother) is Virgo, which became the DS. Cancer Bhukti in JCD Virgo Dasha ran for 1 year (from 10/ 08/ 1985 to 10/ 08/ 1986). The 3rd-lord of BS Cancer (Mercury) is conjoined with the 3rd-lord from the Ascendant (Sun), and the combine is situated in BS. Besides, the combine is involved in mutual jaspect with the BS-lord (Moon). Taurus Antara in Cancer Bhukti in JCD Virgo Dasha ran for 1 month (from 10/ 01/ 1986

to 10/ 02/ 1986). The 11th-lord from AS Taurus (Jupiter) is in AS, involved in mutual jaspect with the DS-lord (Mercury) and also invoved in mutual jaspect with the 3rd-lord from the Ascendant (Sun). The Actual Event : Mother's demise happened in January/ 1986. ... (This falls well within the period - when it was very reasonable to expect). (9). Father's demise happened : in October/ 1998. Father is denoted by the 9th. His health and well-being are denoted by the 8th from the 9th = the 4th. Loss of father is indicated by the 12th from the 9th = the 8th. ... During the periods of a sign, whose lord is situated in the 8th from it (or the 8th-lord from it is situated in it, or jaspects it), or whose lord is situated in the 4th from it (or the 4th-lord from it is situated in it, or jaspects it), the possibility of such happening increases. ... Sun is the natural significator for Father. If from the sign, Sun is found to be situated in the 8th or 4th, then also the possibility of such happening is heightened during the period of the sign. So, the vulnerable periods (in respect of Father's health and well-being) were of the following signs : The 8th-sign from the placement sign of the Natural significator (Sun) : Aquarius. The Sign/s whose lord is situated in the 4th from it : Taurus, and Aquarius. The Sign/s where the lord of the 4th from the sign is situated in Sign : None. The Sign/s whose lord is situated in the 8th from it : None. The Sign/s where the lord of the 8th from the sign is situated in Sign : Taurus. The Natural significator (Sun) situated in the 4th from Sign : Aries. The Natural significator (Sun) situated in the 8th from Sign : Sagittarius. JCD Capricorn Dasha ran for 4 years (from 10/ 08/ 1995 to 10/ 08/ 1999). The sign Capricorn is the 8th sign from the Ascendant, and it's lord (Saturn) is jaspecting the DS. Aquarius Bhukti in JCD Capricorn Dasha ran for 1 year (from 10/ 08/ 1998 to 10/ 08/ 1999). The BS-lord (Saturn) is situated in the 4th from it. The 8th-lord from DS (Sun) is conjoined with the 8th-lord from BS (Mercury), and the combine is jaspecting the BS. ... It should also be noted that the 8th-sign from the placement sign of Sun (the natural signifcator for Father) is Aquarius, which became the BS. Aries Antara in Aquarius Bhukti in JCD Capricorn Dasha ran for 1 month (from 10/ 09/ 1998 to 10/ 10/ 1998). The 4th-lord from AS Aries (Moon) is jaspecting the AS, and the natural significator of Father (Sun) is situated in the 4th from AS. The Actual Event : Father's demise happened in October/ 1998. ... (This falls well within the period - when it was very reasonable to expect). (10). Health Affection : Suffered Heart Attack : in November/ 1993. Health-problem normally arises during the periods of the signs if the 6th-lord as reckoned from the sign is located in it (or jaspects it), or if the sign-lord is situated in the 6th from it. So, the vulnerable periods (in this regard) were/ are of the signs : The 6th house-sign from the Ascendant = Scorpio. The 6th-lord from the Ascendant is situated in sign : Pisces. The 6th-lord from the Ascendant is jaspecting the sign : Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius.

(in case of sign Virgo, the influence is stronger as the frontal aspect of the 6th-lord falls on it). The signs where the 6th-lord from it is situated : Aquarius. The Sign/s where the lord is situated in the 6th from the sign : Sagittarius. The 6th-lord from the Ascendant is Mars; it jaspects the DS (Virgo). The BS (Scorpio) happens to be the 6th house-sign from the Ascendant. The AS (Aquarius) is the sign of "Hrid-Roga" (Heart Affection) itself. As such, it was quite possible that during the period when the combined influences of these signs operated, the state of health was affected. JCD Virgo Dasha was running for 10 years (from 10/ 08/ 1985 to 10/ 08/ 1995). Scorpio Bhukti in Virgo Dasha was running for 1 year from (from 10/ 08/ 1993 to 10/ 08/ 1994). The Aquarius Antara in Scorpio Bhukti in Virgo Dasha was running for 1 month (from 10/ 10/ 1993 to 10/ 11/ 1994) - during which period the serious health-problem was experienced - as it was expected. The Actual Event : Heart Attack : had been in November/ 1993. ... (This falls well within the period - when it was very reasonable to expect). Since in this chart, among the three signs (the Ascendant, the 5th from it, and the 9th from it), only a single sign is occupied by planet/s : the 9th is occupied by Moon , while the other two signs are not occupied by any planet, Jaimini Mandooka Dasha will offer very dependable results in respect of Timing of Events in general. ... So, Jaimini Mandooka Dasha can also be advantageously used for this chart. The set-up for Jaimini Mandooka Dasha for this chart will be as under : (1). Aquarius Dasha : 8 years (from 10/ 08/ 1941 to 10/ 08/ 1949). (2). Gemini Dasha : 9 years (from 10/ 08/ 1949 to 10/ 08/ 1958). (3). Libra Dasha : 7 years (from 10/ 08/ 1958 to 10/ 08/ 1965). (4). Pisces Dasha : 9 years (from 10/ 08/ 1965 to 10/ 08/ 1974). (5). Cancer Dasha : 7 years (from 10/ 08/ 1974 to 10/ 08/ 1981). (6). Scorpio Dasha : 8 years (from 10/ 08/ 1981 to 10/ 08/ 1989). (7). Aries Dasha : 7 years (from 10/ 08/ 1989 to 10/ 08/ 1996). (8). Leo Dasha : 8 years (from 10/ 08/ 1996 to 10/ 08/ 2004). (9). Sagittarius Dasha : 9 years (from 10/ 08/ 2004 to 10/ 08/ 2013). (10). Taurus Dasha : 8 years (from 10/ 08/ 2013 to 10/ 08/ 2021). (11). Virgo Dasha : 9 years (from 10/ 08/ 2021 to 10/ 08/ 2030). (12). Capricorn Dasha : 7 years (from 10/ 08/ 2030 to 10/ 08/ 2037). Full-cycle* = 96 years. N.B. : The Full-cycle* is a 'time-cycle' only; it is not a measure of longevity.

APPENDIX
For inquisitive readers, I am furnishing a little useful information about Kala-Chakra Dasha (K.C.D.) hereunder : There is an wonderful Dasha-system in Parashari Dashas wherein the Dashas are

combined periods of Planets and Signs; it is known as "Kala-Chakra Dasha". It is based on the longitude of Moon as usual, but with a special difference that a mere span of one "navamsha" (= 3*20') only corresponds to the "Full-Cycle"* (which is - depending on the case - 83 or 85 or 86 or 100 years) - whereas in case of the other Parashari Dashas, the span of one "Nakshatra" (= 13*20') corresponds to the Duration of the full Dasha. The K.C.D. system works best when K.C.D. Ayanmsha is followed - whose value is very close to Ayanamsha of N.C. Lahiri. The value of K.C.D. Ayanamsha = Value of N.C. Lahiri Ayanamsha - 0*01'26.74". It is must be of much interest to note that equal-duration Rashi-Bhuktis (9 RashiBhuktis - in the order of the 9 Navamshas of the corresponding sign), and then 12 equal-duration Rashi-Antaras - in usual zodiacal order -commencing from the Bhuktisign, in the duration of a full Dasha), and equal-duration Kaksha-Pratyantaras (8 Kaksha-divisions in Ashtaka-Varga order) can be used with advantage for the purpose of "timing of events" by using K.C.D. Thus, a K.C.D. duration - which falls between 5 years (minimum) and 21 years (maximum) - can be subdivided into 9 * 12 * 8 = 864 equal-duration parts. Thus, the "unit" for timing of events could be from about 2 days (minimum) to about 9 days (maximum). The "Kaksha-Strength" (or the number of benefic dots in the corresponding one-eighth division of a sign) can be used with great advantage. The "aspects" will however be as per traditional Parashari; for delineation of results as per K.C.D., similar sets of principles (as have been followed for delineation of results in case of Jaimini Rashi-Dashas) could be utilized. But of course, in K.C.D., there are certain additional factors (like Deha-Rashi, Jeeva-Rashi, K.C.D. Amsha, and various kinds of "motions" (or "gatis" like Simhavalokana, Poonaragamana, Mandooka, Markati, Kukkuta, Ashwa, Jala, etc - which are really very typical and unique characteristics of K.C.D. * Although in the classic texts, the term "Paramayu" had been used (instead of "FullCycle"), the term is absolutely misleading - as this duration has no relationship with the actual 'longevity'. I have coined the term "Full-Cycle" - since it is more appropriate.
