But this is named as Padanadhamsa Dasa in Phalaratnamala of Krishna Mishra. Though Padanadhamsa Dasa was mentioned as an ayurdasa in Phalaratnamala, it was used as a phalita dasa also by some scholars of the past. The relevant karika is as follows:

पदेशांश राशे ु दशा नेया िवचक्षन ैः ु ाप भाग्यतो यग्मे वषार् नदीदशोिदतः
padeśasthāṁśa rāśestu daśā neyā vicakṣanaiḥ care carādi mārgeṇa ṣaṣṭā ṣaṣṭādikaḥ sthire svāpatya bhāgyato yugme varṣā nadīdaśoditaḥ

चरे चरािद मागण षा षािदकः िरे

Padanadhamsa dasa should be reckoned in the Jaimini Navamsa2 chart.
