Rāśi Vibhaga There flourishes the divine Sūrya, the lord of the day, who is the sole cause and the soul of the Universe, who illumines all the worlds, and who daily brings Cre ation, Destruction and Protection. The time measured from a second (required for winking the eye once) up to a year and the duration of each (zodiacal) Rāśi have been explained along with astronomica l calculations and characteristics of the Grahas. In the section of Horoscopy the various Dasha divisions have been dealt with. Bu t those with lesser understanding capacity need more scientific explanation, as they cannot grasp all (from Brihat Jataka). Notes. This implies, that the present work has simplified explanations based on Brihat Jataka. Further additions are made by the author so an average student ca n grasp more. In order, that the effects, which were declared by the old masters, who were abl e to predict the future accurately, are clarified lucidly, I shall state the gis t of the ocean of Horary Science. The names of the twelve Rāśis are Mesh, Vrishabh, Mithun, Kark, Simh, Kanya, Tula, V rischik, Dhanu, Makar, Kumbh and Meen in their order. The Rāśi Kanya is described, as a virgin seated in a boat with fire and corn in her hands. Tula is represented by a man holding scales (balance), while Meen resembl es a pair of fish. The Rāśi Makar is a deer-faced crocodile, while Dhanu looks like a man holding a bow and having a hip, like that of a horse. The Rāśis Mesh, Vrishabh

, Simh, Kark and Vrischik, respectively, have the forms of a ram, ox, lion, crab and scorpion, true to their (Sanskrit) names. Mithun is imagined to be a combin ation of a male and a female (a couple) holding a staff and lute, respectively. Vrischik, Meen, Makar and Kark are watery Rāśis. Tula, Kumbh, Vrishabh and Kanya are water resorter Rāśis. Remaining Rāśis are land resorters. Simh’s abode is mountain’s caves The habitations for Mesh, Tula, Mithun and Dhanu are in their order plateau, ci ty, village and warfield. The Rāśis Kark, Vrischik and Meen are reptile Rāśis, especially Vrischik, the scorpion Rāśi Quadruped Rāśis are the second half of Dhanu, the first half of Makar, the whole po rtions of Mesh, Vrishabh and Simh. Biped, or human Rāśis are Kumbh, Mithun, Tula, Ka nya and the first 15 degrees of Dhanu. The biped Rāśis are strong, when they house Lagn. Similarly strong are the quadruped Rāśis holding Karm Bhava, the reptile Rāśis having Yuvati and the watery Rāśis, if resided by Bandhu. Two and a quarter of Nakshatras make one Rasi. Each of the 12 Rāśis is constituted b y two and quarter of Nakshatras, or nine quarters with Ashvini in the start in M esh and Revati at the end in Meen. One Ghatik each at the junctions of Revati-Ashvini, Aslesha-Magha and Jyeshtha-M ul is called Gandantha. This evil period rules for four years; some say for six years. Notes: According to Kasinatha’s Lagnacandrika the first three Ghatis of Mul, Magha and Ashvini are cal]ed Ganda Nadika. Simi]ar]y the ending five Ghatis of each o f Jyeshtha, Aslesha and Revati. Donation of ghee filled bronze vessel, black cow and gold are suggested to overcome the evil of this Gandanadika. (See Slokas 89 -92 of Ch. I of Lagnacandrika) Saravali simply says, that the ending portions of Kark, Meen and Vrischik are called Gandantha. Also see Phala Deepika Ch. I, Slo ka 4, which calls such portion, as Bhasandhi. For more information, please see B alabhadra’sHoraRatna, Ch.II. The effects of Gandantha may be seen in Ch. V. of the present work. The first Navamshas of the 12 Rasis from Mesh onwards are, respectively, Mesh, M akar, Tula and Kark, repeating again twice. The rulers of the Navamshas are the same, as the Rāśi lords. The Dwadashamshas begin from the same Rāśi. The lords of Dreshk anas for each Rāśi are in their respective order: the lord of the same Rāśi, the 5th lor d there of and the 9th lord there of. The Trimshamsh degrees allotted to Mangal, Śani, Guru, Budh and Śukr are 5, 5, 8, 7 and 5, respectively, in odd Rāśis. The reverse is true in even Rāśis, (i.e. 5, 7, 8, 5 a nd 5, respectively). Notes. The division of Trimshamsh will be more useful to assess the disposition of a female, her luck etc. These have been elaborately dealt with in Ch. 25. The Rāśis Mesh, Vrishabh, Dhanu, Makar and Kark ascend with hinder part and are know n to be strong between sunset and sunrise. The Rāśi Meen rises with its face in oppo site direction (in both ways) and is strong in twilight and the rest without Mit hun rise with their heads and are strong during the day. All the Rāśis are strong, i f they recveive a drsihti from their own lords, or from Budh, or from Guru. Notes: Brihat Jataka says, that Kark is a day Rāśi and Mithun is a night Rāśi. Also see Sloka 14 of Ch. I of Jataka Parijata and Sloka 13, Ch. 7 of Sanketa Nidhi for de tails of night Rāśis and day Rāśis. The 12 Rāśis follow classified, as male and female one after the other. These are al so known, as movable, fixed and dual Rāśis in their respective order, thus repeated four times from Mesh onward. Notes: The Rāśis Mesh, Mithun, Simh, Tula, Dhanu and Kumbh are male. The rest are fe male. Mesh, Kark, Tula and Makar are movable Rāśis. Vrishabh, Simh, Vrischik and Kum bh are fixed Rāśis. The rest are dual Rāśis. The Rāśi Mesh and its Konas are Kshatriyas. Brahmin Rāśis are Kark and its Konas. Mithun and its Konas are Vaisyas. Vrishabh and its Konas are Sudras. Notes: The 5th and the 9th form a Rāśi are called its Konas. The Kshatriya Rāśis are: Me sh, Simh and Dhanu. Brahmin Rāśis are: Kark, Vrischik and Meen. Vaisya Rāśis are: Mithun , Tula and Kumbh. Sudra Rāśis are: Vrishabh, Kanya and Makar. These divisions can be used profitably in Prashn, also. Face, neck, arms, heart, stomach, (waist/hips), groins, private parts, thighs, k

nees, shanks and feet are, respectively, assigned to the twelve Rāśis commencing fro m Mesh. For a native, the twelve limbs mentioned above are to be counted from Lagn onwar ds. The following 12 colours are assigned to the 12 Rāśis in their order: red, white, gr een, pink, brown, grey, variegated, black, golden, yellow, variegated and thick brown. Meen and Mesh are of short ascension. Crooked are Vrishabh and Kumbh. Long ascen sion Rāśis are Makar, Mithun, Kark and Dhanu. The rest are of medium length. Notes: These can be used particularly to assess the form of a person. If he has Makar on the second house, his face will be long. Suppose Meen, or Mesh ascends, the person will be short statured. The following are 12 different names given to the 12 Rāśis commencing from Mesh: Kri ya, Tavuru, Jituma, Kulira, Leya, Pathona, Juka, Kaurpi, Taukshika, Akokera, Hri droga and Cheththa. Scholars have given various names to Mesh etc. Among them, “Ali” indicates Vrischik, while “Vanagiri” Simh. The twelve Bhavas from Lagn are, respectively, called as: Tanu, Dhan (Artha), Sa haj, Bandhu, Putr, Ari, Yuvati (Kalatra), Randhr (Nidhana), Dharm, Karm (Kriya), Labh (Aya) and Vyaya (Vigama). Notes: The meanings of the 12 synonyms given above are: body, wealth, co-born, r elatives, children, enemies, wife, death, righteousness, or good work (one of th e four ends of human existence), action, income and loss. Vigama apart from mean ing loss, also means death, or departure. The 12th being the terminal house of t he horoscope is related to one’s departure from the world. Kendr, Panaphara and Apoklima divide the 12 houses in three groups. Kendras are Tanu, Bandhu, Yuvati and Karm Bhava. Dhan, Putr, Randhr and Labh Bhava are calle d Panapharas. The Apoklimas are Sahaj, Ari, Dharm and Vyaya Bhavas. Notes: Panapharas are the next Bhavas to Kendras, while Apoklimas are the next o nes to Panapharas. Kantaka and Chatushtaya are the other names given to Kendras (angles), while Cha rama means Apoklima. Madhya Kendr is Panaphara. Bandhu and Randhr Bhava are known, as Chaturasra. Ari and Labh Bhava are otherwi se called Shatkona. Sahaj, Ari, Karm and Labh Bhava are known, as Upachayas. Alternative names given to Yuvati Bhava are: Jamitra, Asta Bhavana, Dyuna, Kama and Chitha. Sahaj Bhava is called Duschikya, Sahaj and Vikrama. Aspada (place), Ajna (command), Karma (livelihood), Meshurana and Kha-Madhya (ze nith point of the firmament) are all identical with Karm Bhava. Bandhu Bhava is called Hibuka, Sukh (happiness), Vesma (residence), Pathala (underworld), Vari ( water) and Bandhu (relatives). Trikon, or Kon notes Putr and Dharm Bhava, while Tritrikon (Kon of the Kon) indi cates Dharm Bhava only. The other names given to Dharm Bhava are: Bhagya, Guru a nd Subh. Notes. According to some Jyotishis, Lagn is also to be considered, as a Kon, apa rt from being a Kendr. However, Phala Deepika Ch I, Sloka 17 and 18 list 1, 4, 7 and 10, as Kendras and specifically mention, that the 5th and the 9th are Konas . Same view is found in Brihat Jataka (Ch. I), Saravali (Ch. I, Sloka 27, Lagnac handika (Ch. I, Sloka 6), Jataka Tatwa (Ch. I, Rule 27 and Jataka Parijata (Ch. I). Thus from these references, only the 5th and the 9th are called Konas and Ta nu Bhava is not. Vyaya Bhava is called, as Rippha, Lopa (void) and Vyaya (loss), while Dhan Bhava is termed, as Vitta (wealth), Kutumba (family), Vak (speech) and Mangala (auspi ciousness). Randhr Nidhana (death), Vinasa (destruction) and Dukh (grief) are the other iden tifications of Randhr Bhava. All the names Riksha, Bhava, Kshetra, Rāśi mean one and the same thing. Notes. Bhav also means Rāśi (Brihat Jataka, Ch. I, Sloka 6). Udaya (rising), Prag Lagn (the point rising in the east), Lekha and Hora are the other names given to Lagn. The various names, as enumerated for the Rāśis are given by the ancient preceptors.

Notes: There is apparently something wrong in this Sloka. We do not understand, why Sūrya and Budh, when aspected by benefics should prove harmful to longevity. T here are only two other benefics, i.e. Guru and Śukr. Śukr cannot aspect the combina tion of Sūrya and Budh. The only Grah, that can thus aspect is Guru. His aspect ca nnot be considered adverse to longevity. From Mesh onwards, the fateful degrees are: 8, 9, 22, 22, 25, 14, 4, 23, 18, 20, 21 and 10. Births in these degrees invite death soon. The same for Candr from M esh onwards are: 26, 12, 13, 25, 24, 4, 26, 14, 13, 25, 5 and 12 degrees. Notes: Phala Deepika, Ch. 13, Slokas 10 and 11 quote the above degrees fateful for Lag n and Moon. But it does not state, that birth will accordingly inflict death. Ja taka Tatwa, (B-108) states, that the following degrees are, respectively, fatefu l for Candr: 8, 9, 23, 22, 5, 1, 4, 23, 18, 20, 21 and 10 from Mesh onwards and death will be caused in the year denoted by such degree. Saravali (Ch. 10, Sloka s 111 to 113) give the following fateful degrees for Candr, respectively, from M esh onwards: 8, 9, 22, 22, 25, 1, 4, 23, 18, 20, 21 and 10. Should Candr be in her fateful degrees, mentioned above and be in the company of a malefic, without relief from benefics, or be in the 8th Bhava, or in angle (i n such a fateful degree), the child not only dies itself, but takes away its mot her too. Notes: Candr should be in her fateful degrees along with a malefic without benef ic aspect. Alternatively she can be in the 8th, Lagn, 4th, 7th, or 10th. Either combination can cause death of the child and the mother. Should the Lagn Lord be strong and occupy an angle, or trine, even the ArishtaYo gas. indicating infant death can be overcome. Notes: Following are some of the combinations, that nullify such evils. Guru not combust and in Lagn, or Lagn Lord with strength and in good aspects, or all Gra has in their own Rāśis, or Candr in deep exaltation, or own Bhava, or friendly Navam sh and in good aspect, or Candr in a friendly decanate along with a friendly Gra h, or Candr’s kendra occupied by Guru. A benefic Grah with strength in angle, not joining the 8th Lord, leads to nullif icaion of Arishta Yoga (causing death) in a nativity, or prevailing at the time of a query. If a strong Grah is in Lagn, the 4th, or the 10th and be not in the company of Sūr ya, the malefic Yogas (for short life) will vanish. Many evil Yogas make the sustaining of the child difficult. But, if Candr, or La gn receives the aspect of all the Grahas, these Yogas disappear, as darkness doe s before Sūrya. Notes: The single aspect of Guru is enough on thc Candr, which can act, like a l ion throwing away a thousand elephants (see Jatakadesa Marga). Thus ends the 5th Ch. Arishtas in Horashara of Prithuyasas, son of Varaha Mihira . Ch. 6. Arishta Yog The evils causing infant deaths have since been explained. Now, the Arishtas (ca using death), arising out of combinations of Grahas are explained (i.e. for elde rs too), as below. During the period of a Grah capable of inflicting evils, if B al Arishtas simultaneously exist, then the evil is greater. Should Lagn’s lord, or the dispositor of Candr be yuti with Sūrya and be without Dri shti from a benefic, while malefics are in Kendras, the native dies in his 20th year. The rising of Mangal in Lagn, while Sūrya and Śani in strength are in Kendras, bring s about the end of the native within 20 years. If, however, such death does not occur, there will be danger to his limbs, or he will become sick. Should Mangal and Sūrya be in Lagn, which is a moveable Rāśi, while Guru is in Karm Bh ava and Candr in Putr, or Dharm Bhava, the native will die in his 20th year. If the decreasing Candr is in Randhr Bhava and in Vrischik Navamsh the native’s de ath will take place. (The longevity span is not mentioned here; but it is said t o be short life Yog) He will at the maximum live up to 25 years, if Candr receiv es a Drishti from Śani and Mangal. Should malefics be in the 8th from Candr, weak benefics in Sahaj, Ari, Dharm, or Vyaya Bhava, while Candr herself is in Ari, or Randhr Bhava, the life span is a

t the most 25. If both, Randhr’s lord and the 8th lord from Candr occupy Kendras, while Randhr Bh ava and the 8th Bhava from Candr are occupied by a Grah and Candr and Lagn are d evoid of strength, the native will not cross thirty. Should malefics occupy Dhan and Vyaya Bhava along with Guru and Rahu and Candr a re in Yuvati, or Randhr Bhava, the longevity of the person is not above thirty. Should a malefic set along with Sūrya (i.e. being in Yuvati Bhava from Lagn only a nd not in the 7th Bhava from Candr) and be yuti with Rahu and Guru, while Candr is in Ari, or Randhr Bhava, the life span is 30. The Yog caused by the position of Śukr and Guru in Lagn, while Mangal and Śani are i n Putr Bhava and Candr is waning, produces a person with short life. Sūrya and Candr yuti with Rahu will cause death at the age of 28. It is more certa in, if Guru is also in Vyaya Bhava. If Randhr’s lord from Lagn is in a Kendr along with Candr, while Randhr Bhava is o ccupied by a Grah and Kendras be devoid of Drishti from benefics, or occupation of benefics, the longevity is only 32. Should the waning Candr be in Kark, while Randhr’s lord is in a Kendr and Randhr B hava is in turn occupied by a malefic and Lagn’s lord is devoid of strength, the s pan of life is only 30. Note the longitudes of Lagn’s lord and Randhr’s lord. When added, if it results in a Kendr, or in Randhr Bhava and a malefic occupies that resultant place, the end comes in the 27th year. Should Randhr’s lord be in a Kon, while Randhr Bhava is occupied by Lagn’s lord, who in turn is in Drishti to, or yuti with malefics, the person lives up to 24, eve n though there is benefic Drishti on Lagn’s lord and on Randhr’s lord. If Guru receives a Drishti from Śani, or is yuti with Rahu and a malefic is in Lag n, while Randhr Bhava is occupied, the life span is only 22. Should Lagn be occupied by its lord, while Sūrya and Candr are in Bandhu Bhava tog ether with malefics and Randhr’s lord is in a Kendr, the end of life is at 30. If Randhr’s lord occupies a Kendr, while Lagn’s lord is devoid of strength, the subj ect lives only up to 30, or 32. Should Candr and Lagn’s lord be weak, receiving Drishti from malefics and be in Ap oklima Bhavas (i.e. Sahaj, Ari, Dharm, Vyaya Bhava), the life span is just 40. If Guru and Śukr ar in a Kendr, while Lagn’s lord is yuti with malefics in a Apoklim a Bhava, a person born before nightfall lives only up to 36. Should Sūrya be in Lagn, which is an inimical Rāśi to him and be hemmed between malefi cs, the person will always be sick and his end comes at his 36th year. Should Sūrya and Candr be in Lagn and benefics be in a Bhava other than a Kendr, o r Randhr Bhava, one born in Gulika’s Muhurta will live up to 36. If Lagn falls in a fixed Rāśi and Randhr’s lord is in Lagn, while Randhr Bhava has a b enefic in it, the life span is only 40. When Lagn’s lord is in the 8th Navamsh and Randhr’s lord is in Lagn Navamsh along wi th malefics, the span of life is only 50. Should the Kendras be devoid of Grahas and Lagn’s lord be not associated with male fics, while malefics are in Putr Bhava, a life span of 60 should be declared. If Lagn’s lord is weak and is in Vyaya Bhava, the person lives for 60 years, provi ded Guru is not in Lagn. When the ruler of Randhr Bhava is in a Kendr, Mangal in in Lagn and Sūrya along wi th Śani is in Sahaj, or Ari Bhava, the person will live up to 44. Should Candr be in Vargothamamsh, receiving a Drishti from malefics and occupy L agn, while benefics are without strength, the person lives up to 48 years. If benefics are in malefic Rāśis and Navamshas other than Kendras, while malefics ar e in Kendras, the longevity is only medium. Śani is a dual Rāśi, which is rising, while Candr is in Randhr, or Vyaya Bhava, the li fe span is 52 years. Should Sūrya be in Lagn, identical with Kark, or Vrischik along with malefics, whi le Candr is in Dhan Bhava and Guru is in any Rāśi other than a Kendr, the person liv es for 50 years. If malefics are in Bandhu and Randhr Bhava from Lagn, or in the 4th and the 8th from Candr and do not receive a Drishti from, or are not yuti with benefics, the

person had only medium span of life. Should Guru and Śukr be together, while malefics are in Bandhu and Karm Bhava and Candr is in Vyaya Bhava, the life span is medium. If Lagn’s lord is in a Navamsh of Śani, while Candr along with Randhr’s lord is in Ari /Randhr/Vyaya Bhava, the native so born will live 58 years of his life. A Raj Yog is formed, when all Grahas are posited in Ari, Randhr and Vyaya Bhava. Such Raj Yog gives the native a life span of 58 years. Should malefics be in the 6th, the 8th, or the 12th Bhava, with reference to Lag n’s lord, while there are no benefics in Randhr Bhava the native lives for 60 year s. When the lords of Lagn and Candr Rāśi are combust, or are in Yuvati and Randhr Bhava and Guru is in a Bhava other than a Kendr, the longevity of the person is 65 ye ars. The Yog of Sūrya, Mangal and Śani in Lagn, while Guru is devoid of strength and Cand r is in Putr, or Vyaya Bhava, gives a longevity of 70 years. Should there be a minimum of four Grahas in the first four Bhavas commencing fro m Lagn, the native is blessed with long life, wisdom and wealth. If there are fo ur, or more Grahas in the next four Bhavas the longevity is sixty, while a simil ar disposition from Dharm Bhava onwards in the last four Bhavas makes a person s hort lived. If malefics occupy Bhavas owned by malefic Grahas, or Bhavas considered evil, wh ile benefics are in Kendras, the person’s longevity will be 80 years. Should there be a mix it is only 60. When Guru and Candr are in Bandhu Bhava, Lagn’s lord is in Labh Bhava with strengt h and benefics (or Budh) are in Karm Bhava, the person lives up to 80. Should Sūrya, Mangal and Śani be in Kendras obtaining Dhanu, or Meen Amshas, while G uru is in Lagn and the rest are in any Bhava other than Randhr Bhava, the native lives up to 85. Should malefics be in malefic Bhavas and benefics be in benefic Bhavas, while La gn’s lord has strength, long life may be predicted. Mangal in Randhr Bhava, Sūrya in Lagn and Guru in a Kendr: this Yog gives a longev ity of 100 years. Should the Kendras, Konas and Randhr Bhava be not occupied by malefics, while Lagn’s lord and Guru are in Kendras, the native lives up to 100. S uch a person is free from diseases, enjoys all kinds of happiness and strives fo r a common cause. Should Sūrya, Mangal and Śani be in moveable Navamshas, while Guru and Śukr are in fix ed Navamshas and the rest of the Grahas are in dual Navamshas: this Yog gives a long lease of life, weapons and kingdom. A person lives for one hundred years remaining free from diseases, if in his nat ivity benefics are in Bandhu, or Dharm Bhava and in odd Navamshas, malefics are in Lagn and in even Amshas and Candr is in Lagn with full rays (i.e. full Candr in Lagn). If Lagn’s lord has great strength, not receiving Drishti from malefics, but receiv ing Drishti from benefics only and be in a Kendr, the native has long lease of l ife and is of virtuous and royal disposition. If Randhr’s lord excels the ruler of Lagn in strength and is in a Kendr, while mal efics are in Randhr and Vyaya Bhava, the native is short lived, or in the case o f medium life, it is with hardships. Now, the combinations for extraordinary span of life. Should Budh, Guru and Śukr be in same Rāśi, or Navamsh, or occupy Lagn, while Śani is in Dharm Bhava, the native lives for a Yuga with the help of chemical tonics, or b oosters. Should Guru, Budh and Śani be disposed anywhere in Bandhu, Ari, Randhr and Vyaya B hava, but be together in one Navamsh, the native lives for 2000 years. All the Grahas in the Navamshas of Dhanu and Meen and in Kendras, Dharm, or Dhan Bhava, in the Rāśi Kundali, make a person follow ascetic course in the very boyhood , live for a full Yuga and write many works relating to Shastras. If Sūrya, Mangal and Guru be in Navamsh owned by Śani and are posited in Kendras, or Dharm Bhava in the Rāśi Kundali, while Candr is at the end of a Rāśi in Lagn, the perso n lives for a Yuga with wealth.

While the system of calculating longevity by exaltation and debilitation process is common to all human beings. The reductions for Mangal should be done here too. The longevity will be exactly arrived at by assessing a Grah’s exact position from its exaltation and debilitation points. Again multiply the latest remainder by 21600. The days are represented by the quotient. Notes: If the Grah is past its debilitation point and be towards its exaltation. then Pindayurdaya is recommended. 17 infra may also be seen. like Brihat Jataka. C h.

If the quotient is more than 54. no cha nge should be made in the other two. If the occupied Rāśi has more dots than the occupied Rāśi. that are in the Pata range of the luminaries. while the oth er Rāśi (of the same Grah) is not occupied. put the same in the other two.

Should there be the same number of dots in both the Rāśis. the smaller number of dots shall be used for both the Rāśis. if all the three Rāśis are equal with dots. Si milar halving should be done. if it is yuti with another Grah. Suppose Budh has contributed 12 years. Notes: The above reductions are explained thus. if a particular Rāśi is occupied the figure must be multiplied by the respective Grah’s mu ltiplier. The net longevity is equal to the quotient in the process. This Pinda should be multiplied by 7 and divided by 27. (Combustion need not necessarily occur. The next remainder is multiplied by 30 and divided by 27 to get days. The contribution of each Grah should be worked out. which are not occupied. Should a Rāśi be occupied by a Grah. The dots in the 1 2 Rāśis. The multipliers for Rāśis and Grahas should be treated separately. but one of them should be free from occupation. The Rāśi figure and Grah figure (as obtained through process explained in Slokas 3840½) should be added in respect of each Grah. then make t e dots nil in the unoccupied Rāśi. 8. This applies also to those in the visible half of the Zodiac. 8. the dots should be mu ltiplied by Grah Gunakara. Only the longitudinal distance counts. then subtract the quotient from 54. when Sūrya is in the same Rāśi. obtained after Trinal and Ekadhipathya reductions should be multiplied by Rāśi multipliers individually. which should be do ne after trinal reductions. together. The rules for Ekadhip athya Shodhana do not apply to Kark and Simh. or eclipsed. This is called Ekadhipa thya Shodhana. For a Grah posited in an enemy’s Bhava. if above 81 subtract from 108. only 6 years. Suppose Budh is in 28 degrees of Simh. 7. The latest remainder is multiplied by 60 and divided by 27 to get Ghatis. Notes: According to Sambhu Hora. ‘The figures of multiplication for Guru. while Sūrya is in 2 degrees of Kanya. 8.

If two Rāśis are vacant. then also half is deduced. there is no Ekadhipathya Shodhana for Kark and Simh. The Rāśi multipliers from Mesh onwards are: 7. as under: a) If he is along with another Grah. as Ekadhip athya reduction. when there are benefic dots in both the Rāśis owned by a Grah. then his contribution is halved. only the highest should be done. (This can be called Shodya Pinda. If one of the three is vacant. Since Candr and Sūrya have each one Rāśi only. Mithun and its Konas and Kark and its Konas In each set.

Male fics in Ari. 12 is reduced to 8. Raman. g) Only the highe st reduction should be enforced. Benefics in the s aid Bhavas will give long life. or depressio n should be made use of to find out Dasha periods. then according to Manitha. The figure should be then multiplied by 324 and divided by 365. Ashtak Varg is the best one. then retain only 12. Should the quotient cross 100. The Grah’s exaltation. The benefic dots in the seven Ashtak Vargas (i. or long life (unduly long life ?). The longevity sh ould be evaluated. In such case. The said figures (after reductions) should be multiplied by the Rāśi multipliers and Grah multipliers (as explained in 38 to 40½ supra) and the total should be multip lied by 7 and divided by 27. According to Dr. Thus. If a person born is of short life. All the Rāśis should be reduce d to such process.e. V. If any Rāśi has more than 12 bindus. the years con tributed by Lagn is equal to the figures signified by Lagn Rāśi. considering the Grahas from Sūry a to Śani) should be added Rāśi wise to get the Sarvashtak Varg figures and then only trinal reductions and Ekadhipathya reductions should be made. contributed by each Grah throug h Ashtak Varg has already been explained. as above and total Dashas should be known accordingly. 10th 1/3rd.
