Aprakash Grahas

! Consultation Form

There are 5 aprakash grahas that are calculated from the Sun, some associate them with the pancha tattvas. They are symbolic of the sin

of the atma (that is why they are calculated from the Sun). They are seen as the papa purusha- the sinful side of a person.

They are not planets in the western sense of the word but they are grahas in the Vedic sense as they have the power to control you, to
force you to do things, and to make you think in a certain way.

They are part of the upagrahas (secondary planets) as they are derived from the primary planetary positions. Specifically, the aprakash

grahas are all derived from the interaction of the Sun and the zodiac of 360 degrees. Every action has an equal opposite reaction; the
Sun creates Dhuma and zodiac creates Vaytpta which then creates Parivea, then Indrachaapa and then Upaketu.

Dhuma is calculated by adding four zodiacal signs and one asterism (133-20) to the longitude of Natal Sun. If we look at the Sun on
Cancer Sankranti, the Sun is 0 degrees, and Dhuma is 13-20 degrees of Scorpio. When the Sun is 0 degrees Scorpio then Dhuma will be
13-20 degrees of Pisces.
If we look in the natural zodiac from zero degrees Aries, this will take us to the 11 th naksatra, Purva Phalguni. Notice the number 11
which is connected to the 11 Rudras. Dhuma means smoke and is connected to the smoke after the body is burned. Ashes to ashes, dust
to dust: Dhuma turns it all back.
If we calculate when Dhuma is in lagna, the Sun is in the ninth house, which is after midheaven but generally the hottest part of the day.
Charaka says that during mid-day the Sun becomes malefic and poisons the blood. This shows the astronomical reasoning behind the

Mantra Shastra

smoke of Dhuma burning things up. Dhuma can be seen as the negative burning fire of the Sun. Parasara says all work (sarvakarma)
gets destroyed (vinasakah). The 8 th house from 10 th is 5 th , the 5 th house ends a karma and then begins another one; (when a person

! Words for an Astrologer

wants a new job we look at dasa/antardasa of the 5 th house). Therefore, Dhuma shows the smoke, the burnt up, the point of highest
temperature.

Vaytpta is the fire of the Sun taken to the bha chakra (the zodiac). Subtract the longitude of Dhuma from 360 will give Vaytpta: The
Sun plus 133-20 is dhuma which is constantly moving with the Sun, as Sun progress the longitude of Dhuma is increasing and that of
Vaytpta is decreasing; it gives a perfect reflection. Vaytpta is havoc, the placement of Vaytpta will show chaos.
Parivea is exactly opposite Vaytpta (Vaytpta plus 180 degrees). When the Sun is 0 degrees, and Dhuma is 13-20 degrees of

Scorpio, Vaytpta is 16-40 Leo and directly opposite is Parivea at 16-40 degrees. Parivea means environment or circumstances; it

destroys the environment or circumstances and is considered to create lots of problems (doakt).

To really understand these aprakash grahas, plot them for the sankrantis of Sun from Cancer to Sagittarius on a North
Indian Chart.

Indrachpa is calculated by subtracting the position of Parivea from 360 degrees (the deduction of Parivea from 12 signs). If in the
previous example Parivea is at 16-40 degrees then Indrachpa is located at 13-20 Taurus. Indrachpa is Indra's bow, or the rainbow.
Indra is the King of Heaven and the lord of rain, after his work (making it rain) he places his bow in the sky called the rainbow. This is
also seen in the Old Testament where the Israelite god places down his bow after the flood to make an agreement with Noah, after he
destroyed the world with rain (Genesis 9:8-11). Indrachpa shows the bow of Indra as well as the arrows which can be piercing.
Varahamihira talks in Brihat Samhita about interpretation of the rainbow in Vedic astrology. Rainbows are generally auspicious, but
when you are going to battle both you and your enemy see the rainbow. When it is conjunct the lagna lord or AL it will destroy you. If it
is associated with the house lord of the enemy or the A6 it will destroy the enemy. In the 3 rd or 6 th house it is in the hands of Rama,
when in the 10 th and 11 th house it is in the hands of Shiva. Both placements will destroy enemies. In the 4 th house the arrows of the
bow will pierce the person's own heart. Upagrahas are generally best in upacharya houses, they depend in dustanas, and other houses
are generally negative, (bad only if they afflict planets in that house).

Upaketu is calculated by adding 16-40 degrees to Indrachpa. Upaketu is a secondary Ketu. It is a flame or flag or banner that will
reverse whatever indications are shown. Upaketu can be connected with some very high or special person in your life dying.
When one sign is added to Upaketu we arrive back at the natal position of the Sun. So the aprakash grahas are a cyclical reflection
surrounding the Sun, the Atman (soul). They are showing the role of the Papa Purusha. Their calculation from the Sun/Atma also reveal
that it is the soul's papa karma that is reflected into the zodiac. In puja there is a practice called Bhtauddhi, which is the purification
of the pancha tattvas within the body to remove the blocks caused by the Papa Purusha. There are various traditions that practice
Bhtauddhi differently. For example, Hindu pujaris do it with powerful mantras, yogis do it with pranayam and meditation on the
chakras, Buddhists do it with visualization of the elements. The key is to remove these dark spots from the Atma. By purifying the
panchatattvas which become indirectly controlled by the aprakash grahas when the Papa Purusha is present/uncontrolled. This allows
the Sun/Atma to be in total control of the panchatattvas. This is said to give one internal purity so all mantras can work, and one can
attain Brahma Jnana. The aprakash grahas are our sin/ignorance that is keeping us away from that supreme knowledge.

Affliction by the aprakash grahas is determined by conjunction with the Sun, Moon, or Lagna. If Conjunct the lord of the Sun, the
lineage is hurt and there may be damage to procreative abilities. This is called Brahma Sarpa. If the aprakash grahas are conjunct the
Subhapati (Moon's lord), the longevity of the person is hurt, this is called Shiva Sarpa. If there is a conjunction with the Lagnesh, the
wisdom (jna) of the person may be afflicted or the brains destroyed. This is called Visnu Sarpa. The Lagna, Sun and Moon are the
tripod of life and are destroyed by the Papa Purusha.
There are three levels to this type of affliction. Firs if they are in the same rasi, next if they are in the same naksatra, and third if they are
in the same navamsa pada.
1. Same Rasi- shows affliction to resources (adridha karma)
2. Same Naksatra- shows affliction to the mind (dridha-adradha karma)
3. Same Navamsa Pada- shows affliction to one's fortune (dridha karma- generally not able to cure/fix if it is caused by one's bhagya)
Note: what is indicated by grahas will dominate over what is shown by upagrahas
Adridha karma is like a karma that is drawn in sand and easy to change. If the Subhapati is in the same sign as an aprakash graha then
the resources for being healthy may be lacking. Unless a graha is showing otherwise, the person may not have the right type of food or
vitamins to be healthy and be long lived. Dridha-adridha karma is harder to change, as if the karma is written on paper, but still
possible. The person doesn't want to eat healthy or to do activities that will promote health. Dridha karma is fixed and is as if it was
carved in stone, only the help of grace form god or guru can change the circumstance. If the Subhapati were in the same navamsa pada
as the aprakash graha the person would not have the fortune to have a long life caused by the indicating factors.

When the Sun's lord is afflicted there is a problem with progeny to carry on one's lineage. Notice the importance of AS3 and AS9 in the
physical ability to have children. Aprakash grahas in the same sign will show lack of resources to have children like no marriage, or
some other type of affliction. In the same naksatra the mind is afflicted and the person may not want to have children.
In the same navamsa pada the bhagya is afflicted and it is not the person's good fortune to have children that will carry forth their
lineage.
Relationship Example:
The man has Indrachapa conjunct the lord of his Sun (Venus). Indrachapa
is in the 3 rd pada of Ashwini with Venus. He is 51 and without a wife or
children. His various attempts have all failed, when he has had such
desires.
Sometimes an aprakash graha affliction to the Sun can show up in a
child's chart as an aprakash affliction to the lagna. In the Mahbharata,
when the Vichitrav rya died without leaving a son for the throne, i
Vyasa was asked to perform niyoga with his barren wives. He asked that
they do sadhana for one year before the niyoga, but Satyavat declined as
she was impatient for a successor to the King. The first born, D
htara, was not only blind but came to be the holder of the lineage
Khauravas who were known to be sinful. The wives of Pu, who had
beeen doing austerities, gave birth to sons who were upholders of dharma.
It is traditional of pious parents to perfom some type of penance for 40
days to a deity before conception to remove the Papa Purusha from one's
offspring and to bring in dharmic children to this loka.
Cancer
Example:
Out of
eight
cancer
cases four
of them
had the
subhapati
with aprakash grahas in the same sign. Two cases where it didn't work had the involvement of bhadakesh, the other two cases were it
did not show cancer the Subhapati was Jupiter. One must remember to see the trimshamsa to see the cause and type of the disease. In
this cancer example, the Moon was subhapati in the same naksatra as Vyatipata.

Unmada Example:
Friedrich Nietzsche is a famous nihilistic philosopher and writer who went
mad at the end of his life. The Rahu Moon in his lagna is more reflection of
his personality, not his madness. The 5th house is related to madness yet it
contains Jupiter. His lagnesh is Mars or Ketu. Mars is in the 3rd pada of
U.Phalgni with Upaketu in the 2nd pada of the same naksatra. Ketu is in
the 2nd pada of Rohini in the same navamsa pada as Vyatipada. Both
cases the dhi is afflicted, which leant to his nihilistic philosphy (unable to
see divine purpose) and helped him walk the road to evenutal madness.
Also notice that the Venus, lord of the Sun, is in the same navamsa pada as Indrachapa.

Remedies
It is hard to take one out of an upagraha curse as it is hard to see, unlike the grahas which are easy to see.
Sometimes mantras of Suryanarayana (the Sun in the zodiac) are used to deal with aprakash grahas as they are born of the relationship
between the Sun and the zodiac. Some use specific mantras for the respective Sun, Moon and Lagna. The best mantra for the Sun is the

This is the mantras and process of bhtauddhi as taught by my Puja guru Kedareshwar of Jagannath Puri
Take in breath through left nostril saying HamsaH, hold breath and repeat the names of the tattvas. Do this three times
for Brahma, Visnu and Shiva.
All your sin is condensed in a black form on your left side: krsna purusha-dark lord representing all your sin
Now the process of pranayam: to burn the sins of the body
Inhale through left nadi and hold 16 counts of YAM for Brahma in the Nabi, then inhale through the right nadi and hold
32 counts of YAM, then exhale through left nadi and kumbaka for 64 counts of YAM.
The pranayam is repeated starting on the right nadi with RAM for Visnu in the heart.
Repeated again starting with left nadi using VAM in the throat for Shiva.
(LAM bija done to strengthen body and lungs. Inhale through both nostrils, hold both nostrils)
This will give you internal purity so all the mantras can work, and you get Brahma Jnana.
