monumental work. T h e c o p i e s of the p r e v i o u s e d i t i o n

reasons the p r e s e n t e d i t i o n c o u l d n o t be brought forth
earlier, though there was v e r y g r e a t d e m a n d f o r the
book. F o r this inordinate delay, I c r a v e the pardon
of the p u b l i c . T h e p r e s e n t e d i t i o n has b e e n completely
revised corrected and enlarged and I have e v e r y hope
that this edition will be r e c e i v e d b y the p u b l i c w i t h
great enthusiasm and pleasure.

It is r e a l l y h i g h t i m e that thi s Science gets back


its propor place i n the world. T h i s S c i e n c e is h a i l e d
as o n e o f the b e s t c o m p a n i a n of M a n i n t i m e o f d i s t r e s s .
F o r i t is s a i d :

Under the circumstances, I should feel greatly


honoured, if this b o o k were to serve as a guide to

According to this method, we have to multiply the 53|'
ghatikas by .60 to convert them to vighatikas, thus: 53| x 60 or
215 X15. This has to be divided by 225. Thus 215 x IS'^- 225=.

The method advocated above by the author to deduce the
Lagna at birth through the position of Mandi or the Moon at the
time of birth does not appear to agree with the one given by
Mantreswara in his Phaladeepika Cf. Phaladeepika III16.
Mantreswara says " Note the Rasi occupied by Mandi at a birth
and note also where the lord of that Rasi is posited. The Lagna
.at birth will be a position triangular to that of the aforesaid
lord or one triangular to the Navamsa occupied by the owner of
^he sign representing the Navamsa occpied by Gulika. When the
Moon is strong, the Lagna should be deduced similarly through
the Moon alone instead of through M a n d i . " Mahtreswara's
-view appears sounder.

The distinction between Mandi and Gulika should be care-
fully noted. Their exact positions on any week-day are not the

of the day to be 30 ghatikas, we have Mandi's position to corres-
-pond with the Lagna at 2 Ghatikas after Sunrise, while Gulika!s
position will correspond to the Lagna at 3| Ghatikas after
Sunrise.

(ii) the 9th, 1st and 5th in the case of a fixed sign ;

The 1st Kendra is as per g ^ q ^ . Brahmins were


born from the head of the Virat-purusha and Lagna represents
the head. Hence the above statement. Further, Jupiter, a Brahmin^
is strong in the Ist Kendra. Thirdly, the East is 1st Kendra, the
Dik specified for a Brahmin. The 2nd Kendra (4th) is termed
Stri Kendra or Vaisya Kendra, for, the two female planets
the Moon and Venusare strong there. The 7th is the Asura
Kendra as (a) the Sun in the 7th is in Asura Sandhya, (b) Saturn
has full Power in the 7th. It is also known as Ghandala Kendra.
(4) The 10th Kendra is the Pourusha Kendra or the Kshatriya
Kendra.

The reason for at least this lease of life for the native may
be that Saturn, the lord of the Lagna and Ayushlcaraka is in the
11th, a benefic house Jupiter is exalted with Vargothamamsa in
the 11th house from the 8th which is his own, also contributes to
the same effect. The eclipsed state of Mercury, of course, shortens
life.

The malefics are posited in the 8th, the 12th and in the 10th
houses. The lease of life therefore is below medium.
The above is the horoscope of a fair lady, betrothed to a
rich family. She was the eldest in the family and had three
sisters ond four brothers. The husband became poor. Note that
the 7th house is aspected by the lords of the 6th and the 8th, and
the lord of the 7th occupies the 8th, a Dusstthana.
The 12th place from the Lagna and the similar one reckoned
from the lord of the Lagna are occupied by malefics. The lord
of the Lagna is also weak being in an inimical house and the lord
of the 8th house is in a Kendra. These are Alpayuryogas., She
died n 12-r31903.
In thsfe connection, the following Slok a from Jartakadcsa
may he penmed \vith interest as the same is also agplicaljfe to the
alom-e Jiajtwity :

If the twelve houses of a nativity be divided into three


groups of four houses, each reckoned from the 1st 5th and 9rh,
and if four or more planets be posited in one single group of four
liouses, the life of the native may be declared to be long, medium
or short, according as the group containing the said planets
happens to be the 1st, Jndor 3rd respectively.
In the present case, there are six planets in the 3rd group,
-She was short-lived.

Mercury, the lord of the Lagna, is not aspected by any bene-


fic posited in a Kendra or Kona. Neither Venus, the owner of
the Rasi occupied by Merury, nor the Lagna, has any benefic
aspect. Hence short life.

Further, there is the Sun, a malefic planet in the 12th house


from the Lagna. This is an Alpayur Yoga.
The lord of the Lagna is in the 12th and is aspected by
Saturn, Mars and Jupiter. The last planet being in his debili-
tation and in the Sth house is weak. His aspect is therefore of
no avail. Till her death she was wielding a very great influence
over her husband, her parents, her two brothers and two sisters.
She was born as the eldest in the family. She died issueless, as
Venus, the lord of the 3th, though posited in the Lagna, receives
the aspect of Mars, and the 5th house is also aspected by Sa*-urn,
and the Putrakaraka is very weak.

The presence of a malefic in the 12th house from the lord
of the Lagna has caused Alpayus for this nativity.
Applying Rule 1 to this nativity, -we see that (a) the lord of
the Lagna has no benefic aspect^ While the lord of the Rasi bccu^
pied by the lord of the Lagna is aspected by thte Moon, a benefic.)
In such cases' conning under s^lokas 7 and 8, the Moon. plays thes
role of the Lagna more than a planet and therefore lier aspect
in not considered. Benefics here will mean only Jupiter, Venus
and Mercury.
(b) The Chandralagna is being aspected by Saturn, the lord
of the 8th; hence, short Ufe.
As per Rule 2, we have the same condition (a) as above.
Also the lord of the 8th house Saturn, is being aspected by
Mars, while the lOrd of the 8th house from the Chandralagna,
viz., the Moon, is aspected by Saturn, tha lord of the 8th house.,
He;nce, short life.
V Note also the Parivarthana (exchange) between the lords of
the Lagna and the 12th house. The presence of the life-givmg
-37

planet, Venus, (that is eclipsed) in the Lagna, is another reason


fo^ short life. ' ,
Further, th? same Saturn aspects Jupiter, the lord of the
Rasi occupied by the Moon.

Jupiter, the lord of thejLagnai has no benefic aspect. Iv^ercury
the lord of the Rasi occupied by Jupiter, has no benefic aspect
(the Moon's aspect over Mercury is not to be considered here
while, applying the Rules stated in Slokas 7 and 8 as the Moon's
Position is considered equivalent more to a Lagna than to a
planet). The lord of the 8th house from Chandra Lagna, i.e..
41

the Sun, is aspected by Saturn and conjoined with Mars, Hence


short life. Rule 2.
In this connection, it will not be out of place if it were to be
observed that the two luminaries are not to be considered here.
Neither the solar aspect is malefic, nor the lunar one, benefic.
Venus is in the first degree of Tula, while the Lagna is
2O03O" in Meena. Hence, Venus is exactly in the 7th house and
is alone while the Lagna is unoccupied. This is an Alpayuryoga.
Now Venus happens to be the lord of the 8th and aspects

by a strong Jupiter who is posited in a Trilcona and in
Vargottamamsa (Sloka 1). Saturn is in his Moolatrikona and in
the 9th and is aspected by Jupiter.
The lord of the Rasi and Navamsa occupied by Jupiter is
Venus, and he is conjoined with the lord of Lagna (Sloka 5>
infra). The lords of the 4th and Sth in the Lagna and aspected
by Jupiter form another favourable feature, Rahu in the 10th
is auspicious (Sloka 9 infra). Mercury, Venus and the Moon in
the Kendras, Jupiter in the Sth and Saturn in his own Rasi are
all favourable.
The presence of Lagna, Jupiter (the lord of the 10th) and'
Saturn (the lord of the 9th), all in Tula Navamsa form the
vertices of an equilateral triangle. This simple position promises
the native, a tolerable financial basis to begin his life with.
Vide IV1 (i).
The conjunction of Venus and Mercury-the lords of the Sth
and 4thin the Lagna, at the same time being beneficially
aspected by a strong Jupiter (as he is in Vargottama), makes the
native deserve the esteem with which the public viewed him. The
ascending node of the Moon is in mid-heaven which is one of the
necessary factors for bringing the native to prominence.
The position of Mercury in the Lagna as the lord of the 4th
makes the native learned, as Mercury is the Vidya Karaka.
Note also the beneficial aspect which Mercury receives from
Jupiter, the Vageesa.
SI. 1 53

The beneficial aspect which Jupiter bestows on Saturn, the


Pitru Karaka as well as the Pitru Sthanadhipa and on Mer-
cury the lord of the Lagna and Matru sthanadhipa shows how
the native was loved by both the parents.

The aspect of the Matrukaraka over the 4th house (mother)


and her position in a Kendra with respect to the Matrustthana-
dhipa as well as Lagnadhipa make the native a pet child of the
mother.
The unfortunate malefic aspect which the Matrukaraka
and the Matrustthanadhlpati received at the hands of Mars, the
lord of the 6th, led to the early demise of the mother. For
Mars is in the 30th degree of Vrischika, and the Moon is in the
14th of Meena. Hence, the aspect of Mars over the Moon is
.77. VideKhandaH18 J-19^ supra.

Venus, the Kalatrakaraka, aspects the Kalatrastthana


being himself aspected by the lord of that house. This ensures
the native a good partner. This is further supported by the
fact that the Bhagyesa, who is retrograde, is being beneficially
aspected by the lord of the 7th house. The trine among VenUg
Kalatrakaraka, Jupiter (lord of the 7th) and Saturn (lord of the
9th) ensures longevity for both.
The presence of the Putrakaraka in the 5th, an inimical
house, while that of its lord who is also the lord of the 12th in
the Lagna is responsible for the premature losses of children.
But the better side of the situation is that the Putrakaraka
aspects the Putrastthanadhipa who is in conjunction with the
lord of the 4th. This ensures the native with some happiness at
the tail end of his life through his children.

Venus, Mercury and Jupiter being in Kendra and Kona


confer good longevity on the native. Ill6 (1) supra. The
Ayushkaraka is very strong and is Under the aspect of Jupiter.

Regarding the position of Mars: He is posited near the star


Antares* which symbolises the tail of the scorpion. The nature
54 ^Ml'til^r'j.^ [Khanda IV

of Mars as the lord of the 6th in this position can be bett.cr imagi-
nedfthan described. He is the Bhratru Karaka. His evil aspect over
the lord of the 2nd ; his evil aspect over the last portions of the
Bhagya Bhava his aspect over the first portions of Kutumba Rasi*
his aspect as Bhratrukaraka over the Bhratrnstthanadhipa, the
Sun ; these factors go to show that the native's brothers (sisters
as well) would have been responsible for creating discord or
faction among the members of the family (as Mars aspects the
2nd house as well as its lord). The main sufferer should be
the native (note-Mars is the lord of the 6th). The native would
have tried to keep up the peace even at the risk of a part of his
own advantages for Mars aspects only portions of Dhana and
Bhagya (Rasis).
The Native lost his partner in Rahu dasa Rahu bhukti i,e, on
7th June 1950 and he passed away during Rahudasa Sani bhukti.

The Lagna is Vargottama.
The above is the horoscope of a' high officer in the tutorial
line employed in one of the Major State of India. Including the
Yogakaraka, three planets are in their respective exaltation
houses, so that the three MahapurushajYogas^viz., Hamsa, Sasa
and Ruchakaare influencing. (Phaladeepika VI1, 2, 3, 4)
Also IV1,
Venus, being in the 4th, possesses full Digbala ( H - l l ^
12 supra). The lords of the 1st and the 7th are conjoined.
' Mars is also the lord of the (Kutumba) 2nd Bhava. And the
lord of the 1st is the Kalatrakaraka. The association of these
two planets causes more than two wives. Saturn in exaltation
and Jupiter in a Kendra position with respect to him and Venus,
endowed with strength will surely tend to give a good longevity
to the native. Further, the three benefics, viz., Jupiter, Venus
and Mercury, occupy Kendra houses and will therefore make
the native long-lived (III6 supra).
The Parivartana or interchange of places between the lords
of the 1st and the 4th houses causes a very good Maha Yoga
videPhaladeepika VI32. 34.
The benefics in Kendras, the Moon in the 9th, Saturn in
exaltation and Ketu in the llth, all prove auspicious (IV-16
infra).
The lords of the 6th and 12th are mutually aspecting. The
native will become wealthy and renowned. IV22 infra).
The lords of the 2nd and 9th are combined. His wealth
will rise ultimately to a lakhIV27.
The Moon's Rasi-lord is Mercury and her Navamsa-lord is
Mars. These two are conjoind with Venus, the lord of the
Lagna. The eff'ect will be to make the native prosperous, wealthy
and happy. IV5.
The 2nd house (of wealth), viz., Vrischika as also its lord
are aspected by a very strong Jupiter. This Jupiter in return
receives the aspects of (1) the Yogakaraka, Saturn (2) the lord
56 arwn'^JTij^ [Khanda IV

of weaUh Mars (3) Venus, the lord of the Lagna and (4) Mer-
cury, the lord of the 9th. Mars, (the lord of) the 2nd, occupies
a Kendra and is in Vargotamamsa. The native will simply
be rolling in wealth.

Jupiter as lord of the 6th certainly occupies a stronger posi-


tion than his enmy Venus who is the Kalatrakaraka as well as
the lord of the Lagna. The former's aspect over the latter has
certainly an upper hand over the aspect cast by Venus on Jupiter.
This implies that the native will be involved and worried on his
partner's account.

The aspect cast by Jupiter (lord ofjthe 6th) over Venusthe


Kalatrakaraka, as also lord of 1st and Sthas well as over Mars
(lord of the 2nd and 7th) causes mental, disturbance over family
question relating to the native's partner.
The reason for his high status is owing to the lord of the
iQth house occupying the 9th, and the 10th house being aspected
by the lords of the 9th, 1st, 2nd, 4th and the Yogakaraka.
The lords of the 9th and 10th from the 9th occupy houses
which are mutually in Kendra position- The lords of the 9th
and 10th reckoned from the 10th are mutually aspecting. These
are powerful Rajayogas. IV4.

The lords of the 2nd and 7th houses have interchanged places.
Mars, the lord of the Lagna, in conjunction with the Sun
(lord of the 10th) has gone to the 12th. The Sun,the Rajya
Karaka and the lord of the Rajyastthana in conjunction with
the lord of the Lagna should bestow on the native a high com-
manding stature and princely comforts. But the Sun is now con.
joined with the lord of the 6th unaspected by benefics and is
posited in the 12th in his enemy's camp. IV2 (3), The native
will consequently hav to lose the poition acquired and undergo
some torments as Mars governs the 6th house.
59

Regarding the degree of learning which the the native should


have acquired, it must be noted that the planets governing edu-
cation are all occupying their enemies' camp. Analysing the
above statement, we see that Jupiter, the lord of the 2nd,.
Vidyasthana, is in his enemy's camp, while Mercury, the
Vidyakaraka, is also in his enemy's camp. But the better side
of the aspect is that the Vidyasthanadhipa who is also the
Vakpati and Vakstthanadhipati aspects Vidyakaraka,
Mercury, who returns the aspect. The native, in spite of hi*
ow education, will try to lift himself up in the worldly plane
merely by the strength of his speech. The aspect of Saturn, the
lord of the 4th, over Mercury is a support to this statement. A n -
other interesting point is that Jupiter, the lord of the 2nd, occupies
the 7th Kendra, his enemy's camp and aspects the Lagna. His
aspect over Saturn, the lord of the 4th, is not returned, while the
Moon and Jupiter do not have any mutual aspect. If must be
inferred from this that the native may think more of himself than
what he is. This statement would not have been made but for
the evil aspect which the lord of the Lagna casts on this Jupiter.
His knowledge of philosophy will not be sanguine as Jupiter does
not get the return aspect from Saturn while the Moon (the mind)
is placed in the 8th from Jupiter.
The native has got a charitable disposition as the Moon is
posited in the 2nd. But this Moon ii in conjunction with her
natural enemy, Venus, who is also the lord of the 12th. Thus
the native's helping disposition is ruinous to the person who'
receives the help. To support this view, the lord of the Rasf
occupied by the Moon is aspected by the lords of the 6th and
the Sth.
The Moon, the lord the 9th, is conjoined with Venus, the
lord of the 7th and 12th. This combination in the 2nd will no
doubt make the native look very handsome and of princely gait.
But as the lord of Bhagya is conjoined with the lord of the
12th in the 2nd (house of wealth), tha native will have to lose all .
the wealth during the Moon's Dasa, specially in the Bhukti of
Venus IV2 (8).
Td<'*I<*|Jicl [Khanda IV

The lord of the Lagna has gone to the 12th. The Sun,
another maleftc, is in the 12th. Mercury, the lord of the Sth is
in the Lagna aspected by Saturn. These are Yogas to cut short
life. The lord of the 5th is in the 7th and is aspected by Mars,
resulting in the loss of the first wife. His children may not cut
a prominent figure in the world as Jupiter the lord of the 5th
and the Putrakaraka, is in his enemy's camp being aspected by
Mercury, the lord of the Sth, and Mars, the lord of the 6th.

The Moon and Mars in Vrischika is one of the.Prabala
Deergayur Yogas. The malefics Rahu, Saturn and Mars in the
Upachaya house aspected by or associated with benefics bestow
Deerghayus (Jataka Parijata-IV90). Rahu in the 3rd associated
with Jupiter and aspected by Venus and Mercury is the 3rd
Deerghayur Yoga in this horoscope.
The native lived a useful life of 82 years.
The two beneficsVenus and Mercurythe lords of the 9th
and 10th from the Lagna are conjoined in the 9th (IV3). Raja-
yoga in its best form is prevalent in this nativity. This con-
junction is further aspected by Jupiter. More than this, it will
be interesting to note that Mercury, the lord of the 9th, is con-
joined with the Yogakaraka Venus.
The presence of two important Dhana Yogas is noteworthy-
(i) the combination of the lords of the Sth and Sth (two Kona
houses) in the 9th (house of luck); and (2) the combination of
Mars and the Moon, lords of two Kendra houses (4th and 7th) in

very interesting to note that the said Dhana Yogas receive the

Another feature of this nativity is that the combination>


which produced Rajayoga, is in the 9th (house of Dharma). T h i *
shows the extreme benevolent and charitable disposition of the
native and it can be asserted that the native made charities right
from the core of his heart as the Sun, the Soul, posited in his
own Moolatrikona, aspects the Dhana Bhava. The native
would have had ample comforts as Mars, lord of the 4th, is in
his own camp, at the same time being aspected by Jupiter, his
friend. The richness of the native is further supported by the
fact that the 2nd house (of wealth) is aspected by a strong Mars.
Jupiters owning the 3rd and 12th is very auspicious. IV9
infra. The Sun, the lord of the 8th, is in the 8th itself, which is
also good.

This nativity is unique by itself : Jupiter and Mars, the lords
of the 9th and 10th from the Lagna are in exact conjunction and
are associated with the lord of the Lagna in the Lagna. The
combination of these three friendly planets in the Lagna Kendra
is productive of immense good. Jupiter being exalted, there is
further the Hamsa Yoga (IV1). The presence of the Gaja-
kcsari Yoga in the Lagna is another featureJataka Parijata

That the native will be rolling in wealth is evident from the


conjunction of the lord of the 9th with that of the 1st in the 1st
house. Another reason for the above statement is the aspect of
the Yogakaraka, Mars, over the Sun (lord of the 2nd, posited in
the 4th).

Venus occupies the 4th Kendra identical with his Moolatri-


kona house thus forming a (Malavya) Yoga- (Phaladeepika VI-1,3) ^

FiU'ther, the Moon and Venus are posited in their own


house's and are iu mutual Kendra positionsIV-13.

Jupiter and Mars also happen to be the lords of the 9th and
10th from the 9th, thus strengthening the Raja Yoga. IV4.

The aspect of the lord of the 4th and l l t h over the 10th,
that of the Rajya Karaka, i.e., the Sun over the lOth j that of
the lord of the 10th over the Sun, are all responsible for the
Strong and immoveable high position held by the native.

The aspect of the Putrakaraka i.e., Jupiter, over the Sth


and the conjunction of the same planet with the lord of the 5th
and also with the lord of the Lagna in the Lagna only shows how
the children of the native may outshine their father. The native
will also identify himself with the well-being of his children.

The Yogas cited above will certainly bring this native to a


very high level in the eyes of the -vs'orld. This is the luckiest
horoscope I have ever come across in all may experience of over
50 years in this science.

Exalted Jupiter in conjunction with the lord of the Lagna


makes the native live to a considerable old age. Further, the
combination of the Moon, Mars and Jupiter in any single house
is a Deerghayur-Yoga.

The lords of the 9th and 10th are mutually aspecting (IV-3).
The lords of the 9th and 10th from the 9th are in conjunction
(IV4). The lords of the 2nd, 5th and 9th are conjoined (IV.5).
The lords of the Rasi and Amsa occupied by the Sun are
Mars and the Moon. They and the lord of the Lagna have also
become related by mutual aspect (IV5.)

Mars, the lord of the 2nd and 9th, is in the 2nd, his Moola-
trikona Rasi. Ample wealth is the result. Mercury, the lord of
the 4th is in the Lagna. Real happiness should have been enjoyed
in the prime of his youth. The Vidya Karaka is badly aspected
by Saturn, the lord of the 12th, while the benefic Jupiter who is
also the lord of the Lagna is in the 8th from Mercury and
posited in his enemy's camp. So, much of education cannot be
expected. But the Vakpati, Jupiter is aspecting the Vak-
stthana as well as its lord. He will be therefore a good speaker
in the platform.

His position in social life as a member of the public service


is good. This is shown by the fact that Saturn, the planet of
service aspects the house of honour (10th house) as well as the
'Lagna ; at the same time, he himself being aspected by Jupiter
who is the lord of both the said houses.

The Moon, the lord of the 5th, though occupying the 2nd is
in conjunction with the Sun, the lord of the 6th. Jupiter, the
Putrakaraka is in the Sth being aspected by the Sun, the lord of
the 6th. These two factors go to show that the childern of th<5
native will not rise to the level of the parent.

Mercury, the lord of the 7th, receives the evil aspect of


Saturn who is the lord of the 12th and is posited in the 4th.
Venn?, the Kalatrakaraka, and Mercury, the Kalatresa, are
devoid of any benefic aspect. The Sun, the lord of the 6th, is.
in conjunction with Mars, the Kutumbesa. These factors go to-
show that the native will have to undergo troubles due to hsi
partner in the shape of her ailments, etc. Saturn, under the
above circumstances aspecting Rahu posited in the 6th may
cause the loss of the partner in his Bhukti in Rahu's Pasa.

Pve association of the Sun (lord pf a Dusstthana) with


Mar?, th* lord of wealth, may cause the decline of wealth o f
the native. This decline will be gradual as the above conjunc-
tion receives the aspect of Jupiter.

The lords of the 9th and 10th from the Lagna, and the lords
of the 9th and 10th from the 10th, being in conjunction in the
Lagna, constitute the best Rajayoga. (IV3, 4). The Lagna is-
Sagittarius. Its lord has exchanged places with that of the l l t h
forming a Maha Yoga. (VI32, 34).
Note the beautiful aspect which the lord of the 1st and the
4th, casts on the lord of the 2nd who is posited in the Sth. They
also happen to be the lords of the 4th and 3rd whose mutual
aspect bestows on the native prosperity, wealth, vehicles,
children etc.
The Moon, (the mind) posited in a Kendra, aspects the
Lagna and the lord of the 9th. This Moon is being in return
aspected by Jupiter, the lord of the 1st and the 4th. This gives .
the native a pure and simple mind which will be an admirable
possession to him ; no doubt, she is polluted by aspects of the 3
maleficsSaturn, Mars and the Sun. The Sun and Saturn
function as lords of the beneficial houses. The aspect of
Mars, the lord of the 12th in the 12th, over the Moon, the
lord of the 8th, is good. (IV21 infra). As Jupiter, the lord of -
the 1st and 4th, aspects the Moon, the evil caused by Saturn's
aspect over the Moon is nullified.
The Lagna is a philosophical Rasi and the Moon aspects i t .
' The two philosophical planets aspect the Moon (mind), while
there is a mutual aspect between themselves also. The two
nodes of the Moon are in conjunction with these two planets,'
These factors will make the native acalculative philosopher, i.e.,
an ardent student of the science.
It will be interesting to note that the native is a Master of
Arts in the First Class taking Philosophy as his optionl subject.
He was till recently an officer of the Indian Audit and Account
Service.
Now, about the Kalatrabhava: The lord of the 12th, Mars,
aspecting his inimical sign Mithuna (7th), coupled with the evil,
aspects of the Sun and Saturn (lord of 2nd) makes the 7th Bhava
weak. It does not promise unbroken marital happiness. The
67

evil aspect gains a strong hand over the benefic aspects of Jupiter
and Venus over the same Bhava,

Venus and the Moon, lords of the 6th and the 8th
respectively, are mutually aspecting, IV21 infra,

Venus and Mercury in the 1st, Kendra, the Moon in the 7thv
Jupiter in the l l t h , the conjunction of the lords of the 9th and
the l l t h in the 1st, are all auspicious. (IV15, 27).

The Moon's aspect over the conjunction of the Sun and


Venus is very marked and effective, IV32. The last t w o

above the average. (IV5). The lord of the Lagna is endowed
with strength as he has exchanged places with the lord of the
liouse of Veerya or strength.
The lord of the 7th is in the 2nd aspected by a powerful
Jupiter, the lord of the Sth. (Sloka 5. c). This assures the
native with a flourishing family, Jupiter functioning both as
JPiltrakaraka and the lord Of the 5th representing children. Th6
.aspect of the Yogakaraka over the 2nd house, and the conjunc-
tion of the lord of the Lagna with the lord of the 2nd, will make

lord of the 9th and 10th from the ICthSloka A(3)and occu-
pying the 2nd house is an-additional factor supporting the above
^statement- Further rise in the native's career is thus well-
assured.
The mutual aspect of Jupiter and Saturnthe two philosb-
phical planetsmakes the native highly God-fearing. He will
have a very strong religious mentality. There is every reason to
believe that the native will maintain his religious code of Hfe
throughout his life. The Moon symbolising the mind occupying
Dhanus a sign of philosophy^-and owned by Jupiter, who in
turn occupies his own Rasi in a Kendra position t0 her also Sup*
ports the above view. There is also the presence of the Gaja-
kcsari Yoga.

Further, Jupiter and Saturn happen to be the lords of the*


-Sth and the 6th houses respectively. Their mutualaspedt ie there-

as fatoe and finance are concerned. But Jupiter being the PtttrW
karaka as well as the lord of the Sth is aspected by Saturn, thft-
69

lord of the 6th (a Dusstthana). This indicates that the native may
have some losses so far as children are concerned.

The abcve is the hororcope of the greatest monument


highly respected not only in India, but by the world~al large.
He is one of the greatest engineers ever born, but strange to say,
he is also a great economist and a politician.
He was holding the highest post in one of the premier Native
States in India for a few years by which time he transformed the
economic, social and agrarian upheavals and brought that State
to light and prominence. In other words, he modernised that
State.
Let us look at the horoscope of that great man. The pie-
sence of Mercury and Venus, the lords of the 9th and 10th in
their respective Moolarikona Rasis is the keynote for the success*
ful career of the native (IV3a). Venus, the planet repre-
senting the Engineering and the Banking professions in the 10th
Kendra and also in a Kendra position with respect to the Moonj
made the native one of the best engineers of the world. IV1
(i) and (iv).
Note that Venus is the Yoga Karaka for the Janma Rasi
also; hence t|ie above statement. His positionin the 10th Kendra,
the house of profession, brings him into the foremost place. The
aspect of Saturn, the lord of the Lagna, on the lord of profe-,
ssion also should be noted.
The presence of the lord of the 9th (Mercury) in his own
camp and in trine to the Moon is a highly beneficial position.
71

Jupiter's presence in the Sth house, it should be noted, is


productive of good to the native. No doubt, Saturn, the lord of
^he 1st and 2nd, occupies the worst house, and the native will
have to suffer the several disadvantages consequent thereby due
to Saturn's presence in the 8th Bhava
The aspect of Mars (planet in the Sth and lord of the 4th)
over the 2nd Bhava ; the presence of the lord of that Bhava in
an inimical sign in the Sth ; evil aspect which this Saturn casts
on Venus, the Kalatra Karakaall these factorsmar the
marital happiness which the native ought to have enjoyed due to
his position,

The Yogakaraka, Mars, occupies the 10th Kendra which is a
necessary condition to elevate the native to the high position
which he occupied. He is aspecting the Lagna symbolising the
body. One can imagine the amount of power which the native
was wielding a'S the Inspector General of Police of the Mysor.e
State. He was deservedly given the Dewanship of three impor-
tant Native States in India' viz., Travancore, Mysore and
Baroda. T o support this statement, it can be observed that
Jupiter, placed in the 2nd Dhana, aspects the 10th, as well as its
lord. Note also that Jupiter aspects Mars, the lord of the 9th.
73

The unique position of the Yogakaraka in a Kendra with res-


pect to the Lagna as well as the lord of the Lagna is noteworthy.
The aspect of Mars over Vrischika, his own camp, would have
enabled the native to command all kinds of vehicles, landed
properties, etc,

Jupiter and Saturn are mutually aspecting. The parts played


by these two planets are manifold. As lords of the Sth and 6th
respectively, they are productive of immense good, (IV21), The
same result is true as they are lords of 5th and 7th {IV-5). These
two planets are philosophic planets and as Saturn is posited i n
Meena (a philosophical Rasi), aspected by its lord, Jupiter, the
native must have been a philosopher in the real sense. The above
remarks, in short, mean that the native was a philanthropist and
philosopher. The same two planets are the lords of the 9th and
10th from the 9th, They constitute a Rajayoga. Saturn, who
is the lord of both the 9th and 10th houses reckoned from the
10th aspects the 10th, the 2nd, the Yogakaraka, the 5th and its-
lord.

But it has to be noted that Mercuiry, the lord of the 2nd, is in


conjunction with his enemy, the Moon, the lord of the l2th,
being aspected by Jupiter, another enemy, and the lord of the
Sth. This Mercury is posited in the 6th house. This unhappy
conjunction must have been responsible for unnecessary waste of
money.

The Death occurred when native was 84 years, 9 months >


and 20 days, that is in his Sukra Dasa, Sukra Bhukti, Ghandran-
tara. Venus is a Papin for Simha and the Moon also claims a
Maraka power (being in a Dussthan) and also as Veniis and the
Moon arc two non agreeing female planets.

T h e 1st and 2nd house are owned by the friends of Mars, while
f
SI. 4] 7^

the 10th house is his own. Jupiter, lord of the 6th, is conjoined)
with Mercury, lord of the 12th, in the 10th. (IV~21 infra). A l l
these are responsible to lift him to the highest position possible.
In addition, the lord of the 9th is in the 10th; the lord of the
4th|and the llth, in the l l t h ; the "lords of 2nd and llth, in the
llth, (IV21, infra). All these arc beneficial factors to support
thesabovc, view. Thc-Dasa of Mars also came in good time when
the'native was in the prime of his age (between his 41st and 48th
year) say between 1886 and 1893. The presence of (Gajakcsari)
Yoga in the 10th house is very marked and worthy of note. 'The
conjunction of the lord of the 9th with the Moon (the mind) goes
to show that the native had a very liberal and broad mind.

Mars, the Yogakaraka, in conjunction," with the lord of the


7th. and posited in the 7th and in exaltation, aspects the 10th, the*
1st and the 2nd houses. These factors go to prove that, with-;
the demise of his wife, his Yoga also will be over.

The positions of the planets in this nativity well indicate


how the native, rising from a humble origin, has striven hard to
earn the well-coveted post he occupied and prove to the world ,
that the honours and titles conferred on him both by the State;
and the British Government were all wcll-dcscrvcd. For, the
Moon, the lord of the Lagna, is in conjunction with Jupiter, the
lord of Fortune (9th), in the 10th house strongly aspected by >
Miars, the Yogakaraka, and a friend to both the planets.

But the above conjunction has also to be viewed from a


different stzmdpoint. The Moon, the lord of the Lagna, is in ,
conjunction with Mercury who is the lord of the 12th. Jupiter^
the lord of the 9th, is also affected by his association with his
e^emy'Mercury (lojd of the 1.2thJ. This combination in the
IQth house goes to show that the property acquired by the native r
will; soon come to a shattered condition after the native's exit,
from the world. , . ;

The Lagna is very strong since Venus the lord of the Lagna

note the relative positions of the Moon and Venus. Both are
planets representing the commercial qualities- Both are posited
in their own camps and mutually in Kendra positions and
relatively placed in Kendra position with respect to Jupiter,
the lord of the 9th from the 10th. This makes the native very
adamant. His argument are reasonable systematic and it is
only the opposite party that has to yield often. The combina-

Jupiter and Jupiter occupying the 10 house from the Moon gives

conjunction of the Moon and Raiiu in the 10th with reference to-
Lagna as well as Lord of the Lagna and the aspect of the Lord
of the 6th over, the Lagna and its Lord has created incidents a*
different stages of life for his imprisonment. That such impri-
sonment led the Native to gain more glory and fame is in
dicated by the fact that Lord of 9th is associated with the Lord
of the Lagna i n ' the Lagna, aspected by the benefic planet
Jupiter (Lord of Sixth) situated in Kendra.
We shall lake this opportunity to point out the importance
of the nodes of the Moon and the effect they cause by thei''
occupying different positions : Rahu, the major node, if he were
to occupy one of the four Kendras, will elevate the native'to a
very high level in the public eye and the native will be a figure
of admiration. The effect above-stated is specially marked
when the major node is in the niid-hcaven.
Viewing the above statement with a clear conception, we
sec tht these two nodes are only the points of intersection of
the two ellipses, .viz., the Moon's orbit and the Earth's orbit.
These two points will occupy Kendras at the time of birth, only
when this axis of intersection is at right angles to, or lie along
the horizontal line.
- . I n the present case, Rahu in the 10th has brought the
native to very high prominence.

Vargottamamsa and possesses full Digbala. The lords of the


9th and 10th reckoned from the 10th are mutually aspecting and
thus constitute a Rajayoga. (IV4). Further, there is the pre,
sence of Dhana Yoga as the Sun (lord of the Sth) is conjoined
with Mercury (lord of the 6th). IV22 infra.
The Moon lord of the 7th in the 9th (house of fortune)
aspected by Mercury (lord of the 9th) as well as by Jupiter is
highly beneficial so far as fortune is concerned. The 7th house
is also aspected by Jupiter. The native will be prosperous both
financially and maritally. The lord of the 4th Sukha being ii>
the l l t h , aspects the 2nd Dhana which is also aspected by its
lord" The above only supports the statement already made
about the prosperity of the native further. The justification for
the native's high position lies in the fact that Venus, the Yoga-
karaka, strong in the 4th, aspects lOth house which is his
own.
The lord of the Lagna aspectiuT; 5th, the Putrakaraka as-
pecting the same, the lord of the 4th aspecting the same,aU
thesegive sufficient strength to that house (of issue).
That the native will not rise very , high is indicated by the
presence of Saturnthe lord of the 1st and the 2ndin the Sth
and in the house of his enemy- And as Saturn is very badly
posited, his aspect over the 10th acts as an impediment to
further rise. The lord of the Sth, in conjunction with the lord
of the 9th aspects the 9th.
It has to be noted that a planet having the ownership of
two houses must fulfil his duties as the lord of each house. The
first duty will correspond to the nature of the house which
happens to come prior in the order of counting from the Lagna.
So, Mercury, the lord of the 6th, bestows good amount of
wealth on the native as a result of his (Mercury's) conjunction
with the Sun (lord of the 8th)vide IV22 infra. But while
playing his role as the lord of the 9th, he is a beBefic in con--
junction with the lord of a Dusstthana. His aspect over the
Bhagya Bhava proves destructive to that Bhava. with the result
SI. 5] 81

that the wealth earned becomes a source of worry instead of com-


fort and liable to be misspent. In the present case, Mercury
owns Mithuna, the 6th, and Kanya, the 9th. His duty as lord
of the 6th comes prior and as lord of the 9th occurs later.

The Moon, the lord of the 7th, though in 9th, is badly


aspected by the lords of the 6th, Sth and 12thall possible
Dusstthanas.

The conseqenee of these three bad aspects on the Moon (the


mind) will be that the native will be unable to overcome even the
smallest obstacle that comes in his way, that is, the mental
strength will not be adequate to overcome such obstacles.

The above riativity belongs to an officer holding a very high
position in one of the important Native States in India.
The unique position of the Sun in the Lagna Kendra, in his
Moolatrikona Rasi and in Vargottamamsa considerably enhances
the value of the nativity and makes the owner highly renowned
and happy. (IV1). The rising Navamsa rises with its lord.

SI. 5] 85

Jupiter's owning the 8th house and Venus occupying the 12th
are also favourable factors for enhancing the value of the horo-
scope. (Sloka IV^9). The native is extremely lucky and will
have continuous prosperity throughout his career.
The three benefics, viz.. Mercury, the Moon and Jupiter
are in the 2nd, 3rd and 5th houses and are very auspicious. Sloka
IV16). Rahu in the l l t h and Venus in the 12th are
auspicious (IV-9, 16 infra). Mercury owning the 2nd as well as
the l l t h houses, and occupying the 2nd, identical with his exalta-
tion, will make the native very wealthy (IV5). He is sure to
win royal favour and titles.
The Moon, the planet signifying the mind is badly aspected
by (1) Mars, a planet in depression and (2) Saturn, a planet
posited in his inimical house; further, he happens to be the lord
of the 6th. This Yoga will often put the native to troublesome
situations. There is no getting out of this position, as the Moon
has no benefic aspect. To support this view, we have Venus and
the Moon, lords of the 3rd and the I2th, interchanging places
thus resulting in a Khala Yaga. [Phaladeepika] VI32.

planets under reference, are also posited in very favourable Nava-
msas. Mars, the lord of the 2nd, in conjunction with the Sun,
the Rajyakaraka, bestows on the native a large amount of wealth
which has to be earned only by wielding power and position. The
exchange of places between the Sun (the Rajyakaraka and the
lord of the llth) and the Moon the (the Rajyastanadhipathi the
lord of the 10th) answers for the enviable position held by the
native.
The position of Saturn, the Yogakaraka, in the 6th and
that of Mars (the lord of the 2nd) in the 10th, go to show that
the native will be more wealthly than lucky. This is further
supported as the said Yogakaraka has just begun his Retrograde
motion. The operation of a powerful Hamsayoga is noteworthy,
phaladeepika VI1, 3. Jupiter's aspect over the 2nd and his
-conjunction with the lord of the 2nd is favourable for financial
matters. It maybe noted that these two planets are aspecting
the 4th while Jupiter aspects the lord of the 4th, thus enabling
the native to own immovabl elanded properties, vehicles, servants,
etc.
The native will be bestowed with good children as the Putra-
karaka Jupiter aspects the lord of the 5th (Saturn), while the
Sth house is aspected by the Moon.
Jupiter's owning the 3rd, Rahu in the 9th, Ketu in the 3rd,
Saturn in an Upachaya Rasi, are all favourable.

The lord of the 5th, i.e., Mars, aspects the lord of the 2nd
who is posited in the Lagna. Jupiter, the Putrakaraka aspects
the said Saturn, who is in the former's house identical with the
Lagna. The native thus identifies himself with his children in
their happiness. This is further supported by the fact that the
lord of the 5th (houses of issues) and the Putrakaraka occupy
mutual Kendra positions also with respect to the Lagna and the
lord of the 2nd (house of Kutumba).

The two poilosophic. planet* are mutually aspecting. Saturn,


being in the philosophical sign Sagittarius, is aspected by its lord.
These go to show that the native is also religiously inclined being
particularly interested in religious studies, as the lords of the
2nd and the 4ththe two Vidyasthanasare mutually aspect-
ing. Mars aspecting Saturn in the present case spoils a bit the
exquisitenes( of the philosophy of the native. The position of
Mars in the 10th generally compels the native to hunt after
status apd position more than after salvation.

This nativity belongs to an officer who was occupying a very
high post in a Native State i n India.
The prime factor which appeals to the reader is the
presence of the Sun, the Rajyakaraka, the soul, in the exact
degree of the Lagna. The rising Navamsa has its owner with it.
His association with Mars, the lord of the 10th, gave the native
the coveted post he had occupied. The presence of Mars, the
Yogakaraka, in the Lagna was also responsible for the quickness
with which the native was rising in the official ladder. Mars has
secured Neecha Bhanga from Saturn.
Jupiter and Mars, lords of the 9th and the 10th from the
Lagna, as well as from the *;th are mutually aspecting and
are posited in Kendra positions, thus resulting in a Rajayoga.
I V - 4 (1), (2).
Two Dhana Yogas are prominent in the nativity. The
first one is due to the presence of the Sun, the lord of the 2nd,
i n the rising Navamsa which Is his own. The second one is'^ue
to the mutual exchange of places between the lords of the 7th
.and the 9th. To support these views, Saturn, lord of a Kendra,
is conjoined with the Moon, the lord of the Lagna, in the 9th
(House of Fortune), while the lord of the 9th aspects the Lagna,
*hc Sun and the Yogakaraka. The mutual aspect between
88 ^^131^ [Khanda I V

Jupiter, the lord of the 6th and Mercury, lord of the 12th, is
another Dhana Yoga, IV22 infra.
Saturn, the lord of the Sth, is posited in the 9th in conjunc-
tion with the lord of the Lagna. Jupiter, the lord of the 6th,
aspects the Lagna and the Yogakaraka. Mercury's presence in
the Lagna (as the lord of the l2th) is bad, The lord of the 4th
and llth has gone to the 12th. These are some of the unfavou-
rable features which should have resulted in heavy unnecessary
expenditure, mental worries and loss of kith and kin.
Jupiter and Mercury are posited in Kendra positions while
Venus occupies the 12th. The native was born in the second
quarter of Uttarabhadrapada. His demise occurred in the Dasa
of Venus (planet posited in the 12th) in Mercury's (lord of the
12th posited In the Lagna) Bhukti.

The lords of the 9th and 10thSun and Mercuryare


combined resulting in a Rajayoga. An interesting poirt in this
combination is that the two planets are connected with the posi-
tion of the Native ; one is the lord of the 10th Rajyasthanadhi-
pati, and the other is the Rajyakaraka.
It must be noted that the native would not have been v.^ry
popular as the 10th house is aspected by Saturn and more
especially as Mercury, the lord of the 10th, is posited in the 8thj
his enemy's camp. Moreover, the combination of the lords of
the 9th and 10th is in the Sth, a Dusthana. Mars' (lord of the
12th) aspect as well as that of Venus (lord of the 6th) over the
Lagna is not favourable so far as financial matters are concer-
ned. To be more clear, Saturn's (lord of the 2nd) aspect over
Lagna would be getting the native good amount of wealth, while
the aspects of Mars and Venus over the Lagna would make him
feel the need for money.

the aspecting planet is .'Jupiter, the philosophic planet, ho wonder
his speeches mostly dwelt on religion and philosophy.
Saturn's presence in the 10th Bhava in a Vargottamamsa
gave the native unsuprasscd power, influence and respect
as the planet is the Yogakaraka for this Lagna. The lord of the
Lagna being in his exaltation supports the above view. Jupiter
and the Moon are posited in mutual Kendra positions wjth
respect to the Lagna and there is the Gajakcsari Yoga. The
aspect of the Sun over the llth house was productive of inunensc
good.

The above is the horoscope of an oiBcer holding a high posi-

is in mid-heaveri in his own Navamsa and is aspected by Jupiter.
Mars is in the 2nd occupying his own house in conjuuction with
jdpiter, a benefic. This Yoga makes the native highly omniscient,

(IVi). The lords of the 9th and lOth are in conjunction with
he lord of the Lagna (IV3). The unfavourable position of
the above conjunction is that it is in the 12th and strongly
aspected by Saturn. The lord of the 2nd and 7th, in conjunc-
tion with Jupiter in the 2nd, no doubt promises good marital life,
wealth, children, etc. and the aspect of Jupiters over Saturn
answers for the the high status commanded by the native. The
same Jupiter is the Putrakaraka and Saturn happens to be the
lord of the Putrabhava (5th). So that, the well being of the
children is assured.
The native will however have to undergo some worries oh
the children's account as the Sun cast?'his glance over the inimical
hotise Kumbha (the 5th from the Lagna), coupled with the evil
aspect of Mars also ; and the Sth house docs not receive any
aspect from Jupiter, nor from Saturn who is the lord of that
Bhava.

The lord of the 2nd is in the 9th aspected hy (1) M^rs,

The lords of the 6th and 12th are inutually aspecting
(iv22 infra). The lords of the 8th and 12th arc conjoined

(because, the interval between Saturn and Mercury is only 9).


The lords of the 2nd;and the l l t h are one and the sapie, (IV-5,28).

The Moon and Jupiter in the 9th, Venus in the 6th. Mer-
cury in Kendra, all prove auspicious (IV-16 infra). Saturn
and Rahu in the 3rd are also good.
The Moon, being nearly full, is in the 9th in her friend's
Rasi, having exchanged places with Venus. These
two planets are also occupying mutual Kendra positions, thus
.establishing a cardial relationship between them. Jupiter in
conjunction with this Moon makes the native omniscient, endo.
wed with all virtues, extolled by people and the native will
becohie a highly munificent and great personage (IV1 (a).
The Moon and Mercury, the lords of the 9th and lOth from
the 9th,as well as the lords of the 6th and Sthare also mutu
ally aspecting and thus constitute a Rajayoga in a mild form
IV4,22.
There is a Sambandha between the lords of the 2nd and the
1st, by mutual aspect. This is very auspicious.
The presence of G.-vjakesari yoga in the 9th is noteworthy.
The Lagna and the lord of the Lagna are both' aspected by
Jupiter, which is very beneficial. The Yo5,?.karaka being posited
in the 6th and his exchange of place with the lord of that house
has lessened the Dhana Yoga and the Rajayoga referred to above,
with the result that the native's finances mav not come to the ex-
pected level befitting his merits. The above orchange of place
also accounts for the fact that the native exerts more to get
his prize which others would have get by less labour.
The mutual aspect between Saturn and Jupiter in conjunc-
tion with the nodes makes the native learned as Jupiter is the
Vageesa and (Vakpatilord of the house of speech) and philo.
sophic.
Rahu in Mesha identical with the 3rd gives good longevity
as also the conjunction and mutual aspect existing between two
of the Dusstthana lords.

The native held a very high post in a permier Native State
in India and has now retired.
The Lagna is in Vargottamamsa and the lord of the 10th
house is in exaltation aspected by Saturn, the Yogakaraka, with
his 7th aspect. The 10th house is occupied by Rahu and the lords
of the 9th and llth, Jupiter and Mercury fU'^ ''n mutual Kendra
positions. Venus, the lord of the L?.^ i i ' in the Uth and is
|VIII4>'JI'*8: 97

aspected by Jupiter as well as Saturn. All these are favourable


factors to justify the high position occupied by the native.
Regarding the Kalatrabhava, Jupiter in the Ith and aspec-
ted by Mars, the lord of the 2nd and 7th, indicates that the
native's partner in life was of an exceptionally noble disposition.
She had all the good qualities of a dutiful wife. The aspect o f
Jupiter over Venus supports the above view. But the lord of the
2nd and the 7th is in the 12th, identical with his inimical R a s i ;
the Kalatrakaraka is in his enemy's camp being aspected by
Saturn ; there is also the presence of an evil planet in the 2nd
house; all these have brought about the untunely demise of the
partner and the loss sustained there by.
In spite of the fact that Mars, the lord of the 2nd, occupies-
the 12th, the native is wealthy because, Saturn, the Yogakaraka,
is in the Dhana Bhava. As the 5th house reckoned both from
the Sun and the Moon are,tenanted by eril planets and as Jupiter,,
the Putrakaraka, receives the evil aspect of Mars, the happi>
ness of ownii^r children is practically nil.
The native does not posses a large heart as the Moon i-
aspected by a malefic and has no benefic aspect.

The lords of the 9th and 10th are in their own places.
(IV3), Venus, the lord of the 2nd, is in the 9th. The Moon
aspects the Lagna. There is mutual aspect between the lords of
the 2nd and 9th, and 4th and 7th. These are some of the bene-
ficial points constituting the Rajayoga in mild form and thus
making the native wealthy.
There is struggle at every inch of the native's life, as Saturn,
the lord of the Sth, casts his evil glance on the Lagna, Mars,
the lord of the 8th, being himself posited in the Lagna, also gives
his share to the above statement as he casts his evil glance on the
4th. The one Yoga which enables the native to overcome all
these troubles is the presence of an unmolested Mercury, the
lord cf the Lagna, in the mid-heavcn identical with his camp.
There is Bhadra Yoga. The conjunction of the lord of the 9th
with the Sun, the lord of the I2th, docs not promise good luck.
Note the aspect which Jupiter, lord of two philosophical
signsDhanus and Meenaand also the Vageesa, casts on the
Moon (the mind), who is in Meena, (a philosophical sign), and
on Saturn, another philosophical planet. This has made him to
expound philosophy well. He has a silvery voice and he is an

The above is the horoscope of a celebrated astrologer in.

The lord of the 10th is posited in Kendra occupying his own
Navamsa. He is also in his exaltation, thus, a powerful Sasa
Yoga operates as Saturn has full Digbala, II(11|12^).

Note the aspect of (1) Jupiter (lord of she 9th), (2) Mars

the 9th. This certainly makes the native very fortunate as the
^th is the house of fortune.
. Regarding the standard of the knowledge of the native so
far as occult sciences are concerned, planets are very favourably
:Situated. Saturn, the planet supposed to be well-verised in this
science, gives his full aspect to the Lagna and the Sun (soul)
while the Moon, the lord of the 4th (house of learning), and
Mercury (the Vidyakaraka) are conjoined in the Lagna, aspected
by the same Saturn. Venus, the lord of the 2nd, is in the 2nd

This is the horoscope of the eminent Guru who was rightly
occupying the Sringeri Pceta. The Sun is in Vargottama in the
Lagna. Jupiter being retrograde is also in Vargottama. The
strong mutual aspect of Jupiter and Saturnthe two philosophi-
cal planets, and the presence of the Yo;rakaraka in the 12th
house go to prove thai the native had renounced A\ worldly
plrasures. Another factor supporting this statement is the
combination of Ketu with the Sun, the Soul of Kalapurusha in
the Lagna,

The lords of the 9th and 10th houses reckoned from the 9th,
are both strong, the former being Yogakaraka, and the latter
occupying his own house and Varga. The mutual aspect bet-
ween these two justifies the native being looked upon with high
veneration and paid all royal honours. The Sun happening to
be posited in the Lagna Kendra and in Vargottamamsa makes
the native richly deserve all these honours. The presence of the
lord of the 2nd house in the 4th, identical with his exaltation sign
and in a Kendra position to Mercury, the lord of the 9th, makes
the native exceedingly learned in scriptures and philosophy. The
combination of the lords of the 1st and the 10th in the l l t h is
highly beneficial. This conjunction (between Moonthe mind,

in the 2nd and 9th, Rahu in an Upachaya place and the position
of Saturn in the 9th and that too in Jupiter's Rasi and in Vargo-
ttamamsa, and the lords of the three Dusstthanas conjoining in
one Rasi, all these are very favourable factors to make the
nativity a very powerful one IV16. Further, Rajayoga arises
by the association of the lords of the 9th and 10th houses
reckoned from the 10th. by the combination of the three benches
in the 9th^the house of Dharma, by the formation of a splen.

The native is magnanimous, fond of childern (*s Jupiter as-

disposed to help others and do good to the pablic, fond of
religious observances and is of a charitable disposition. The
Yogakaraka being in the 12th and in an enemy's camp, and not
receiving any beneficial aspect indicates that native has not been
lucky as he ought to have been for his merits.

A^enus proves auspicious in the 12th house except when he is in
3. Rasi or Amsa owned by Saturn IV16. So, he is bad here.
Mercury, the lord of the 4th and 7th in the 12th is not beneficial.
Though the Moon, the lord of the Sth, aspects her own house,
she is in conjunction with Saturn, the lord of the 12th, Jupiter
the (Putrakaraka), occupies a Dustthana and is badly aspected by
;Saturn, the lord of the 12th, Further, the 5th house is aspected
by Saturn and Mars. Hence the native will not have the good
fortune of owning any living children.
Mars, the lord of the 2nd and 9th, occupies the 10th Kendra,
:aspecting at the same time the 1st and the 4th house. As a
.consequence the native must have been wielding some power ;
she must have also commanded good wealth, vehicles, servants,
~etc. The presence of the lord of the 6th in the Lagna, the lord
o f the 1st in the 8th, and the aspect of the 12th over the 1st, all
these proved detrimental to her rise in life and she passed away
Jjefore people could understand her merits.

Note :The natural aversion of Bhavas and their Karakas-


also happens as follows :Let us suppose Vrishabha to be the
Lagna. Then Makara becomes the 9th Bhava, and the Sun, its
Karaka. Here the Sun has got a natural aversion to the Bhava,

The above horoscpe belongs to a distinguished Educational
Officer in one of the premier Native States in South India.
The lord of the Lagna is in mid-heaven in his exaltation
Navamsa. The exchange of places between the lords of the 1st
and the 10th constitutes a Mahayoga, Phaladeepika VI32, S^.
Saturn, the Yogakaraka, is in the Lagna aspecting (1) his own
house and (2) Venus. This 10th house is further occupied by
Mars, the Commander. The same house is also aspected by
Jupiter. A l l these strenghen the 10th house. Hence the high
position occupied by the native.
The combination in the 10th, of Mars and Venus, the lords
of the 10th and 9th respectively, reckoned from the 10th, as-
pected by Saturn (the Yogakaraka) and Jupiter (the lord of the
11th) placed in the 4th consitute a very strong Rajayoga, Sloka 4
(3), (a).
The lord of wealth who is also the lord of the Sth is in the
l l t h in combination with the Sun, the lord of the 4th,(IV5).
This Yoga enables the native to enjoy the immense wealth he
earned, and be blessed with happiness and children. The inter
SI. 22] 11?

change of p l a c e s between Jupiter and the Sun, the lords of the


l l t h and the 4th respectively, supports the above statement
Phaladeepika VI33. 34).
Another beneficial feature in this nativity is the mutual
Kendra positions of Jupiter and the Moon specially with refe-
rence to the lord of the Lagna and Saturn, the Yogakaraka.
Venus functioning as the lord of the 6th i n combination with
Mars, the lord of the 12th and the mutual aspect of the lords of
the Sth (Jupiter) and 12th (Mars), of the lords of the 6th (Venus)
and of Sth (Jupiter) make the native wealthy and prosperous'
Sloka 22 (infra). The Mpon in the 10th is another beneficial
factor.
Mars, the lord of the 7th who is also the lord of the 12th,
i s combined with Venus, the Kalatrakaraka, and is aspected
by Jupiter, the lord of the 8th. This is rather very unfavoura-
ble, so far as the lot of his partner is concerned. The aspect of
Mars and Venus over the 4th house is also not good as the two
planets are lords of Dusstthanas. Another feature : The Sun,
the lord of the 4th, is in the 8th from it, thus indicating that the
native will not have domestic happiness to his satisfaction. Mor^
than one living wife is indicated by the combination of Mar
lord of the 7th and also of the 12th) with Venus (lord of the 1st
and the Kalatrakaraka).
There are no planets in the Apoklima houses, thus indica-
ting that the native will be a leader among men. IV28 infra.

The above is the horoscope of a leading statesman in one of


the premier Native States in India.
The lords of the 9th and 10th counted from the 10th are
conjoined in the 2nd house and form the Rajayoga IV4. The
exchange of places of the lords of the 2nd and 3rd is favourable.
The mutual aspect between the lord of the 1st {who is also the
lord of the 2nd) and the lord of the 4th (who is also the lord of
the llth) indicates that the native will be rolling in wealth. The
presence of the Yogakaraka in the 2nd makes the native very
lucky,
Saturn, the lord of the 1st and 2nd houses, aspects the 9th.
This same house alse receives the aspect of Venus, the Yoga-
karaka, as he is in the very end of Kumbha, Mercury, the lord
of the 9th, is in the 2nd. This makes the native very fortunate
jand hence wealthy.
A word about the 7th house. Mars, the lord of the 4th,
l>eing in the 12th, casts an evil glance on the 7th. The lord
of the 7th, though posited in the 2nd, is in conjunction
with Jupiter, the lord of the 12th, Mercury, the lord of the 6th,
and the Sun, the lord of the 8th. While the combination of the
lords of the Dusstthanas (6th, 8th and 12th) will confer a Raja-
yoga in any horoscope, it is unfortunate to find that tn the
present instance they bring about the bad aspects of life also.
Premature death of the partner and unsatisfactory state of
-domestic life are all the effects of this combination in the
Kutumba Bhava,

The conjunction of the lords of the 9th and 10th from the

the lords of the 8th and the l2th, the conjunction of the lords of
the 6th and the 8th, the mutual aspect of the Moon and Saturn
the lord of the 3th and the llth respectively^make the native
very wealthy. The presence of the lords of the 2nd (house o f
Wealth) and of the 9th (house of Fortune) in the 10th, who at the
same time casts a glance over the Lagna, the 4th and the Sth
houses, makes the native lead a vc'v prosperous life. Though
the aspect of Saturn (who is very strong) as the lord of the l l t h
over the Dhana Bhava and its lord may prove beneficial so far
aSi^the finance of the native is concerned, the native is likely to
meet with slight financial losses as Saturn as lord of the 12th
casts an evil glance over Mars.
The conjunction of Venus and Mercurythe Kalatrakaraka
and the lord of the 4th and the 7th (Kalatra-house) respectively
in the 12th with the lord of the 6th is not beneficial for domestic
happiness. But the native need not worry so much on this score
as Jupiter (the lord of the Lagna) aspects the 7th beneficially.
As the combination of the planetsthe Sun, Venus and
Mercuryabove alluded to, has happened in the 12th house, the
Rajayoga will be very mild,

Balance of the Mo'on's Dasa7 years, 5 months and 20 days.

The above is the horoscope of an eminent scholar^both in


Sanskrit and English^who was an employee in Government
service in a Native State.

The difference in degrees between the positions of the Sun


^(symbolising the soul) and the Lagna (symbolisii^ the body), is
-only 2. Moreover, the rising Navamsa is owned by the Sun; this
indicates how adamantine the native's will-power was ; that is,
what his soul said, his body obeyed. Note that the Sun is in
-exaltation in the Lagna.

The fact that Mars, the lord of the Lagna, has gone to the
12th cannot be overlooked, as it makes the Lagna weak. But note
the beautiful aspect which Jupiter from his Moolatrikona casts
on the Lagna. The combination of Mecrury and Marsthe
lords of the 6th and the 8thin the 12th, makes the native free
from his enemies and own some immoveable property. In this
connection, note the aspect which the Moon, the lord of the 4th
(House of lands and property), receives from Saturn, the lord of
the Rasi occupied by the Moon, and the aspect of the Moon
over the 4th (her own camp). That the lord of the Lagna is in
conjunction with the lord of the 3rd, in the 12th makes the native
a very submissive servant who would implicitly obey his
superior's orders. As Mercury is the lord also of the 6th and as
the conjunction does not receive any benefic aspect, the native
works more and gets less.

The native will have a good number of children as Jupiter


^the Putrakaraka) aspects the 5th (Putrastthana) as well as its
lord, while the 5th and its lord do not receive any malefic aspect.
The conjunction of Venusthe lord of the house of education
with the Sun, and the presence of the said Venus in the rising
Navamsa coupled with the aspect of Jupiterthe (Vageesa)
makes the native a scholar. Venus happens to be the owner of
SI. 24] 117

the 2nd and the 7th and also the Kalatrakaraka). Jupiter, the
lord of the 9th, aspects this Venus. This indicates the attach-
ment which the native had towards his partner. As Jupiter
happens to be the lord of the 9th and the 12th, the Bhagya-
fortune) of the native should die away with his partner. The
presence of a sort of rude nature in the native is indicated by the
aspect of Saturn, a rude planet posited in the Lagna, cast on the
Moon (the mind) posited in the 10th house.

Mars represents Earth as well as fire, while Mercury denotes


water. This is due to the fact that Mars is termed Mahisuta or
SI. 26] 119

Kuja while Mercury is Soma's son, or an isue of a watery planet.


The Earth and Fire, and Water are inimical is a well-known fact.
This establishes the strong enmity between Mars and Mercury.

The Sun and Mars are two Kshatriya planets, as they get
their Digbala in the 10th, (1111^ supra). O f the two, the Sun
is of a noble sentiment and thus is made use of in analysing
the constructive element of the native; while the latter is taken
to represent the destructive element. It is for this that Kuja
is termed a Saiva in Indian mythology (V31. infra). Hence,
it is very probable that Mars is classified more as a Thams
planet than Rajas and is a support to this statement, since Mars
aspects the lord of the Sth in a destructive capacity and is kept
in par with Saturn. Further Kanda 11-89 is another support. Also

The above is the nativity of a lady whose father was a rich
gentleman and whose husband was an officer in the Indian
Audit and Accounts Service.
Mars, the Yogakaraka, is posited in the 5th house which is
his own camp. The Sun occupies his friend's sign Dhanus. This
Sun is the lord of the 2nd. For matters of finance. Mars and
the Sun in the present instance do more good to the native than
harm. The three major benefics, viz., Mercury, Jupiter and
Venus, (of whom the middle planet is in his Moolatrikona) are
posited in the 6th, 7th and 8th, thus forming the Chandradhi-
yogaIV26. This Yoga will make the native very wealthy
and powerful.
The lord of the 9th, being strong, aspects the 2nd and is in
conjuction with the lord of the 2nd. The mutual exchange of
places between the lords of the 7th and l l t h , and the mutual as-
pect of the lords of the Sth and 12th are all Dhana Yogas,
IV22. The lords of the 9th and 10th from the Lagna are in
their own houses, whjle the lords of the 9th and 10th reckoned
from the 9th are in their respective places, IV4. Thus a power-
ful Rajayoga operates.
A word about the Lagna : Saturn, the lord of the 8th casts
his evil glance over the Lagna. He is also the lord of the 8th,
reckoned from the Chandra Lagna.
SI. 27] 121

The lord of the Lagna being aspected by the lord of the 6th,
is posited in the 12th. The lord of the Lagna also receives the
full malefic aspect of Mars. We have therefore to infer from
the above that the native may live up to her forties.

As the lord of the 2nd is combined with the lord of the 6th
in the 6th ; as the Yogakaraka in conjunction with Mercury, his
enemy and lord of the 12th, is aspected by Saturn, the lord of
the 8th, the wealth earned so far may not last long, as unnece-
ssary expenditure might crop up.

Mars, the lord of the 4th, occupies the 10th Kendra aspcc-
-ting the Lagna as well as the 4th. This makes the native wield
powers, and own houses, vehicles, etc. The lords of the 9th
-and 10th reckoned from the 10th are associated in the Lagna
Kendra IV4 (3). Mercury, the lord of the 9th, occupies the
Vargottamamsa in the 1st (Kendra). Saturn, the lord of the Is*
and the 2nd occupies the Dhana Bhava, making the native very
wealthy. The lords of the 3rd and 4th are mutually aspecting.

In applying the principle enunciated in IV27, we see that


both the lordships of the 9th houses counted from the Lagna and
the Moon fall to Mercury. His Kalas are 8. Adding 8 + 8 and
dividing by 12, we get a remainder 4 thus indicating that the 4th
Rasi from the Moon is Mesha. This Rasi is occupied by the
benefic Jupiter in Vargottamamsa. This Yoga makes the native
very wealthy. To support this view we have the lord of the 2nd
i n the 2nd (wealth); the lord of the 2nd is aspecting Jupiter ;
Mars (lord of the 4th) is in the 10th and aspects Jupiter.

The native was holding a high position in one of the pre-

The horoscope belongs to an influential tradesman in South


India- He has now been reduced to abject poverty. He is
absolutely a pauper at present.

Considering the bright side of the aspect, we see the lord o f


the Lagna and the 4th occupies his Moolatrikona, thus forming a
Hamsa Yoga. The 9th house is aspected by Jupiter. The lords
of the 9th and 10th are conjoined in the Lagna. The rising
Navamsa rises with the Sun. Much influence should have been
excercised by him in the early part of his career. The lord of
the 2nd posited in the 9th is also aspected by Jupiter. As per
Sloka IV27, we see that the lord of the 9th from the Lagna as
well as from the Moon is the Sun. His Kalas are 30. The
remainder got from (30-1-30) ~- 12 is 12. The I2th house from-

Looking at the dark aspect of things we see that the combi-

the lord of the Sth. Jupiter, the lord of the Ist and the 4th, is
BISO affected by his association with the lord of the 8th. The

it does not make the native lucky during that period. The Pari-

Saturn is retrograde.

The striking feature of this nativity is that the Lagna is fixed


exactly between the two benefies, Venus and Mercury. The arc
joining the positions of these two planets is exactly bisected
at the Easten horizon. The next point that is notable is that the
planet that has risen is in his Vargottamamsa being the lord of
the Lagna. Further, he is occupying his Moolatrikona identical
with the Lagna Kendra, the result being a powerful Malavya
Yoga. Paladeepika(VI1, 3). The planet that is to rise is the
loord of the 9th (the house of luck). To put the situation mroe
clearly, the Lagna, symbolising the body, is packed between the
lord of the Lagna and the lord of the 9th.

Mars, the lord of the 2nd, occupies a Kendra and is in


exaltation, thus forming a Ruchaka Yoga ; Jupiter owning the
3rd, (IV'9) occupies the mid-heaven identical with his exalta-
tion Rasiresulting in a powerful Hamsa Yoga. Paladeepika
VI1, 3). Mars and Jupiter who aspect each other are the lords
of the 9th and 10th reckoned from the 10th. The presence of
a strong Rajayoga is thus note-worthy. IV4 (3).

Jupiter aspects the Moon (lord of the 10th) who is posited in


the 2nd. The same Jupiter aspects Mars, lord of the 2nd. A
very strong Dhana Yoga is the result. The native will have to
earn good lot of money more by his position than he would have
got by his inheritance.

People will have great respect for the words of the native as
Jupiter (Vageesa) is posited in the house of ' Command ' and
aspects the house of ' Speech' as well as its lord.

A word about the Yth Bhava, This Bhava receives the aspect
of its powerful lord. Mars and also that of Venus, the Kalatra-
karaka, But it must [be noted that Bhava is polluted by the
..aspect of Mercury, the lord of the 12th, and Venus, the lord
126 STiKWl^i^ [ K h a n d a IV

of the Sth. Further, there is the evil aspect of Saturn. The native?
will however get a good partner as the Kalatrakaraka and the
lord of the 9th aspect the 7th.

The Sun, the Pitrukaraka, is in the 12th, in the house of


Mercury. This Mercury who is also the Pitrussttanadhipati is
in conjunction with the lord of the Lagna in the Lagna. Thus,
the early demise of the father had to be anticipated.

It will not be out of place if one were to infer that in spite


of medium ordinary education which the native had, the native
has risen to a high post which the others in the ordinary course
of events will find it difficult to achieve. Much goes to the
credit of three planets yielding three Mahapurasha Yogas, all of
them being in mutual Kendra positions.

Saturn, the Yogakaraka, occupies his Moolatrikona house


and at the same time aspect the 2nd. The native will become
very rich as a consequence of this. Further rise is indicated.

Applying the principle laid down in Sloka 27, we see that


the Kalas for the two planets owning the 9th houses from the
Lagna and Moon are 8 and 16 respectively. Therefore (16 + 8C
-7-12 yields a remainder 12. This irdicates the 12th house from
the Moon^viz. Tula :Two benefics unmolested by malefics
occupy the same thus indicating a Koteeswara Yoga. There is
also an Anapha Yoga. Brihatjathaka (XIII3),

The native was an officer in one of the premier Native


States in India.

In spite of his humble inheritance, the native was an owner


of more than a lakh of Rupees. Two benefic planetsJupiter
and the Moonare at exactly 90 to each other and they occupy
the 7th and the 10th Kendra in their respective Vargottamamsas.
A powerful Gajakcsari Yoga operates Jathaka Parijatha
VII116-117. Jupiter, being in his Moolatrikona Rasi, the
presence of Hamsa Yoga is to be noted.

The Lagna is in the last degree of Mithuna and hence


occupies Vargottama. Jupiter is exactly in the (Asta Lagna) and
therefore aspects the Lagna completely. The lord of the Lagna
is exactly in the centre of the 2nd Bhava and so Mercury, in the
capacity of the lord of the Lagna and lord of the 4th, adorns the
Dhana Bhava. So no wonder, however humble he might have
been, wealth should come in thousands.

Turning to the other Yogas, we see that the 9th lord is


posited in his Moolatrikona (exactly) in the centre of the 9th).
Venus and Saturn have mutual aspects as lords of the 5th and
9th. Mars and Saturn are conjoined in the 9th Bhava as lords
of the 11th and 9th respectively. Further, they are the lords of
the two Dusstthanas, the 6th and the Sth. The mutual aspect
128 mj^f>m^ [Khanda I V

between the lords of the 8th and I2th, and dth and 12th arc also
noteworthy. IV22.

beneficial.

Saturn, the Yogakaraka, being the lord of the 9th, is posited


in the 7th Kendra. He aspects the 9th and the Lagna. The
Sun and Mercury, the lords of the 4th and 5th respectively, are
combined in the 4th. They are also the lords of the 4th and
the 2nd. Mercury, as the lord of the 2nd (wealth), aspects the
10th. He is however in conjunction with the Rajyakaraka who
is posited in his Moolatrikona. Again these two planets while
.aspecting the 10th (House of honour) receive the aspect of
Saturn, the Yogakaraka, and the lord of the 10th. The native
Ijecame immensely rich mainly by virtue of his position as the
.-above. Saturn aspects the Lagna also. The aspect of Saturn
over the 4th as well as its lord, gave the native a large amount
of happiness, vehicle, etc. To be short, for people born with
Vrishabha as Ascendant, Mercury, the Sun and Saturn are the
-only planets who are responsible to elevate the native. These 3
planets are occupying the 4th and the 7th Kendrain this parti-
-cular nativity.

The birth in question is exactly at mid-night which is very


:favourable. IV30. The 4th house is being aspected by a full
Moon. Jupiter owning the Sth is favourable. IV19.

Here the author explains what is meant by (Arudha) or

much distant from the Rasi occupied by the lord of the Bhava
under consideration, as the lord himself is removed from the
said Bhava.

Let us now prepare the

Jupiter, the lord of the
Lagna is in Mithuna, i.e.,
in the 7th Rasi from the Arudha
or
Lagna. Hence the Lagna- Padachakra
pada falls in the 7th Rasi 12 5
from Mithuna, i.e., Dha-
nus. Hence No. 1 is mark- 1
8 4
11
-ed there. Take the 7th
Bhava ; its lord, Mercury, is in the 1st house from the 7th and
J;herefore the Saptama pada or the pada of the 7th Bhava is
placed in the 1st house from Mercury, i.e., again in Mithuna-
'The figure 7 is therefore placed there. Now take the 5th Bhava.
Jts lord Mars is placed in the 9th house from it, and the 9th
house reckoned from Mars is Simha, and here you see No. 5
.entered. Similarly work up for all Bhavas and you will see the
12 Padas scattered as shown in the Chakra. The author has
taken only 8 Padas, belonging to 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th
and 12th and has left out the four others 3rd, 6th, Sth, and llth.
But Jaimini has generalised this to all the 12 Bhavas and this
seems to be correct.

It will be observed from an outward glance at the Arudha


Chakra that all the odd Padas arc situated in the odd Bhavas
reckoned from the Lagna, while the even ones are in the even
' Bhavas. This may appear a mystery at the beginning ; but it
will be found out that this is after all the result arising out of the
very definition of Pada. Mathematically this theory may be
proved that it cannot be otherwise.
Suppose we ^consider the Arudha or Pada {of any Bhava.
Assuming that the lord of the Bhava under consideration, is n
Rasi away from the Bhava, the Pada of the Bhava falls in a
Rasi which is n Rasis removed from the said lord. This means
the Pada falls in a Rasi which is n + (n1) Rasis removed from
Jthe Bhava, When n is an integer, 2n1 is always odd. There
136 StR^SPJ^ [Khanda I V

fore the Pada will fall in an odd or even Rasi reckoned from the
Lagna according as the Bhava under consideration is odd or
even.
In the usual Chakra, the Bhavas are situated successively in
order, but the Padas are scattered here and there and sometimes
two or more are in conjunction. The Bhava Pada will be situated
in the same Bhava, only when the lord of the Bhava is placed
either in the same Bhava or in the 7th from it.

It will further be seen that, in the Arudha Chakra, the


Bhavas are distributed and consequntly the effects too might
vary. For example, in the ordinary diagram, the Dhana Bhava
falls in Makara, and Saturn, its lord, is the planet to cause its
effect. But from a glance at the Pada chakra, it will be seen that
the Dhana pada is in Vrishabha ; in other words, the house of
wealth is shifted from Makara to Vrishabha, and its lord Venus
will be the cause for its effect. In the course of Dasa, Bhukti
readings based on the general principles of horoscopy, one will
find that effects of certain nature not concerning with the planet
happen actually and he fails to ascribe proper reasoning for the
happening of the event. For example, in the above horoscope,
Venus is the lord of the 2nd pada and the 6th pada and is placed
in Vrishabha. This gives the result that Venus is capable of
giving wealth with much diffculty as he owns the 6th also. From
the general principles of Astrology, his lordship over Dhana
Bhava cannot be at a glance said. Again, under general princi-
ples, Mercury has no connection with the 4th house other than
for the mere association with Jupiter, lord of the 4th. But
under Arudha Chakra, Mercury is the lord of the 4th and it is
he who gave the native.high education, especially in mathematics.
The Arudha Chakra will thus explain all such discrepancies.

In the usual diagram, each planet owns at least one Bhava.


But under Arudha Chakra a planet may own even more than
two and sometimes none at all. It has been definitely stated
that a planet cannot cause the effect of a Bhava unless it owns
it or aspects it etc. Applying the same principle, it may be
SI. 36] 137

that a plane! cannot cause the effect of a Bhava unless it owns


it or aspects it, etc. Applying the same principle, it may be
jgeneralised that the planet will certainly cause the effect of the
Padas that are owned by it, aspected or occupied by it. When a
planet does not own, or is not situated in any Pada, it will have
no individual power to cause any effect. It seems that during

In this Sloka, the Saptamapada is being considered as
this Sloka is in continuation of the previous Sloka where the
Kdatra Bhava is mentioned. The author describes here the
effects of Kalatrapada and its Upapada, i.e., the Pada of the one
previous to Saptama i.e., Shashtapada, This is in harmony with
140 [Khanda IV

the general principles of Astrology that whenever a Bhava is


considered, the positions of planets situated in the previous
Bhava have to be reckoned as such planets have the power of
Achchhadana as Ij declared by the author in IV19 supra. A
question may then be raised as to why the previous house is
referred to and not the next one. The reader will find an answer
to this when he reads the Sloka on Achchhadana, where it is
stated that generally planets have a tendency to have an advance
Achchhadaaa and not a receding one.
Take the horoscope given above. Here the Upapada of the
7th Pada, i.e., the 6th, falls in Vrishabha and Venus is placed
there in Swakshetra. His wife i.e., his first wife is beautiful, of
:good conduct and is blessed with long life. When the Pada is
considered, all the general principles of Astrology must be used
and the results predicted. But when Upapada is considered,
prediction must be based only on the planets conjoined with the
Upapada- This point is not clearly explained by the author
but a logical reasoning from the general principles and by the
-wordings this can be elucidated.

The above is the horoscope of a retired judicial officer in a
premier Native State.
The Sun, the lord of the 2nd, in conjuction with the lord of
;the Lagna is posited in the Lagna, This is a very strong Dhana
Yoga and makes the natire very rich- The lord of the 2nd
being in the Lagna further makes the native a fluent speaker.
This is further supported by the presence of Jupiter, the Vakpati
In the 2nd.
The Lagna and its lord are being aspected by Saturn who is
posited in his own camp. Saturn further possesses full Digbala
.,<II^12supra). One will have to conclude that, as Saturn's influ-
ence over the lord of the 1st and the 2nd is great, the native
will be dark in complexion. A powerful Sasa Yoga operates.
The lords of the Rasi and Amsa oocupied by Jupiter are posited
i n the Lagna. (IV5). The ascending node is in the 10th as.
pected by the lord of the 10th. The native would have exercised
jgood powers as Mars is the aspecting planet. Further, Mars
142 FKhanda I V

happening to be the Yogakaraka occupies a Kendra. The pre-


sence of Mercury, lord of the i2th in conjunction with the lord
of the 6th, Jupiter, i n the 2nd, is a splendid Dhana Yoga. But
Mercury as lord of the 12th in conjunction with Jupiter as lord
of the 9th, in the 2nd, is most unfavourable. Saturn's (lord of
the Sth) aspect over the 9th, 1st and 4th is also un.favourable.
As regards his marriage, let us apply the principles enun-
ciatedin IV38-''0. The
Padachakra of the nativity 6
11 2
10
will be as shown in the
margin.

His first wife has to


be read out from the 7th 7
Pada and its Upapada, i.e,. 6
the 6th Pada. Saturn is
4
placed in the 7th Pada and 12 5
8
is aspected by three male-
ficsthe Sun, the Moon and Mars. Rahu is placed in the
(Upapada) Hence the demise of the first wife.

His next wife has to be ascertained through the 2nd house


and the 5th house, they being the 8th from the 7th Prda and its
Upapada respectively. The 2nd house is occupied by two bene-
fics. The Sth house is unoccupied by any planet but it is aspected
by Venus, a benefic : (Swakshetra). A l l these go to prove that
she will be long-lived and well-blessed in life. But the aspect
of the malefic, Saturn, on the 9th house which is 8th from the
2nd house indicates that there is another marriage to the native.
The same eff"ects read out from the 7th Pada for the first wife
has to be applied in this case also except for the Upapada. In
this case the UpapadaSthis left unoccupied but aspected by
its lord, the benefic Jupiter, which shows that her life, though
short, is not as short as that of the first, and that there are no
more marriages to the native.

Children. The issue from the first wife has to be judged


from the 5th house from the 7th Pada, i.e., Vrishabha. As
S I . 40J 143

Venus is posited tiiere inliis own camp, the first wife could have
borne children but for the aspect of Mars, The issue from the
2nd wife have to be ascertained from the Sth house from the 2nd
house i. e., Dhanus. It is unoccupied but aspected by its own
lord, Jupiter, who is strong with exaltation Navamsa- Besides
he is conjoined with another benefic, viz.. Mercury. Hence,
children are born to her. The issue to the 3rd wife have to be
judged from Karkataka being the Sth from the 9th house. As
its lord is posited in the same house along with the Sun, a friend
.she will have some childern in spite of the aspect of Saturn.

The three important factors which appeal to the reader are
^1) the Lagna is Vargottama; (2) Venus, the Yogakaraka, being
in exaltation and in Vargottamamsa, occcupics the 2nd (house o^
-wealth); (3) the lord of the Lagna is in mid-heaven. The Sun
,and the Moon are in exaltation. Three planets are in exaltation
in succession. As a consequence, the native will become famous.
wealthy and powerful.
The Moon aspecting Saturn forms a splendid Dhana yoga as
they are lords of the 6th and the 12th respectiveity (IV22).
"The combination of the lords of the Sth and the 9th in the 2nd
.Jiouse goes a long way to elevate the native in the eyes of the
iVH*hrwtJi^ [Khanda I V

world. To explain it in simpler language, the 2nd house governs


the tongue, the Sth represents the intellect, and the 9th repre-
sents philosophy. A connection among these three houses will
enable the native to expound philosophy to the native's best
ability, mainly by power of his intellect and tongue.
Regarding the 7th house, it is aspected by the hermaphro-
ditc planet Saturn, lord of the 12th. Though its lord, the Sun,
is exalted, the lord of the latter sign is debilitated. The Sun is-
posited in Aswini which is the 7th star from the natal one, and
whose lord, ketu, occupies the 12th house. Saturn, is posited
in the 7th from the Chandra Lagna with two benefic planets in
the l l t h house from the Chandra Lagna. The Chandra Lagna in
this nativity can be considered equivalent to the Lagna as the
Moon is exalted and possesses full Digbala, being posited in the
4th Kendra (Brihatjataka XVIII20). The above arguments go
to prove that the native should have two wives. (Paladeepika
XS), These points can
6 also be viewed from the
2
10
Pada Chakra given in the
margin :

The first wife has to be


1 ascertained from the 7th
4 11 and the 6th Padas as usual
9
The 7th Pada is aspected
S 8 by its lord Jupiter and by
3
7 12
none else. The 6th Pada
is occupied by Mercury (debilitated) and Venus (exalted).
Hence herself surviving, he will have a second wife whose fortune
has to be read out from the 2nd and the 1st Padas. The 2nd
Pada is occupied by the Moon who is waxing and exalted and the
lord of the Pada, viz., Venus, is exalted. The first Pada is left
unoccupied but aspected by Jupiter. Hence she will be blessed
with long life, properity, etc., and there will be no more wives to
the native.
The issue to the first'wife has to be read out from Mesha, a^
the same is the Sth from the 7th Pada. Its lord, Mars, is
SI. 41] 145

placed in the 8th house from Dhanus, i.e., the Rasi of Tthe first
wife, in debilitation and conjoined with Rahu. The position of
Jupiter in that Rasi is no good for the reason that the Karaka
is placed in the Bhava (reckoned from that of the first wife)^
Hence no issue to her. The Sth house from the 2nd wife iy
Kanya whose lord Mercury, though in dcpressin is conjoined
with exalted Venus thus rendering Neechabhangatva and is placed
in the 7th from Kanya and 11th from Vrishabha, the 2nd wife's-
Rasi. She will therefore have issue.
Turning to the original chart we see that Jupiter, the lord of
the 2nd, aspects the 9th. The Moon (the mind) being exalted
is aspected by the lord of the Lagna, the two planets occupying-
mutual Kendra positii>ns with 'espect to the Lagna. Mercury-
the lord of the 5th (house of Dhee-intellect), is in the 2nd. All.
these Yogas give the native the philosophical intellect and an.
interest to pursue the science. For the mid-heaven is occupied
by a philosophical planet being aspected by the planet represen-
ting the mind. This can be further supported by the fact that:
Saturn owns the 12th also. It is a general conclusion that people
born under Aquarius will have spirit of renunciation for the
following two reasons : (a) the Ascendant is a philosophical
Rasi (b) the lord being a philosophical planet owns the 12th.

In these two slokas (4243), the author describes about


Adhikagraha, He seems to have taken this idea from Jaimini
who calls this planet Atmakaraka and he has attached mUck
importance to the Amsa occupied by this Atmakaraka and has
very elaborately dealt with this subject. Readers may find these:
in Jaimini Sutras, In these two Slokas, the author has des-^
cribed the effects of planets joining the Atmakaraka in Rasi.
Ghakra, For example, the exact planetary positions in Chart-
76 given in p, 134 are in order as follows :

Sun, Mooh, Mars, Merc. Jup. Venus. Sat, Rahu. Lagna


4-36' 10-56 25<'.4 280-25' 24-7' llo-7' 4-^' 2-17' 9-58'
The Adhikagraha or Atmakaraka is Mercury as he is the planet
that has advanced most in the Rasi occupied by him.

Here that planet should be in conjunction with the Atma-


karaka and not otherwise. But Jaimini reads these efifects from
the conjunction of planets placed with this Atmakaraka i n
Navamsa Rasi. For this, please see notes under the sloka 45.

This is a very important Sloka. The author has in brief


.exhausted all the details elaborated by Jaimini. He wants us to
read similar effects from the Navamsa Rasi occupied by this
Atmakaraka and Dwadasamsas too, but Jaimini has taken only
Navamsa. Then he describes that the planet next in degrees and
minutes has also to be considered and the native's profc-ssion
to be predicted out of that planet; valour and courage from thg
planet next to it. In this connection. I may say that this is nothing
.but an abstract of what Jaimini has elaborated and discussed
in his Sutras. He calls the planet foremost in Kalas (degrees^
in any Rasi Atmakaraka, the next in degree to Atmakaraka Ama-
tyakaraka and the next as Bhratrukaraka ; next as Matrukaraka
.and the next Putrakaraka, the next as Jnatikaraka and the next
Darakaraka. With this he stops and bases his prediction on
-these. This theory of attributing Karakatva is like attributing
.a Lagna to Atmakaraka and the successive Bhavas till 7th to the
successive planets. In fact, this is how he has dealt with the
.subject. For details, please refer to Jaimini Sutras.
Illustration :Take Chart 76.

Mercury is Atmakaraka ; Mars is Amatyakaraka; Jupiter


-is Bhratrukaraka ; Venus is Matrukaraka ; the Moon is Putra-
karaka ; the Sun is Matulakaraka and Saturn is Kalatrakaraka.

Antarain the above Mercury's Bhukti, we proceed thus :
Convert the 32 months and 9 days (the period of the Bhukti)
into days, thus: 32 x 30-1-9 or 969. As the Moon's Dasa period
is 10 years, this has to be multiplied by 10 and a half of the
product is to be taken==969 x 10 x J or 4845. This will denote
the number in Ghatikas of the Moon's Antara. This when con-
verted into days will be = 4845-T-60 or 80 days, 45 Ghatikas.

Saturn is retrograde.
The position of planets in the above nativity indicates that
-the native's life will be a struggling one for a major period. T h e
reason for the above statement is that the lord of the Sth (house
of worries and difficulties) is camping in the 1st, while the planet
representing misery, viz., Saturn, casts his complete evil glance
over the Lagna and its lord. Mars in such a position aspecting
the 4th (house of happiness) does not in any way promote:
happiness.
The lord of the 9th is in the 10th and that of the 10th, the
Sun, who plays the role of (Rajakaraka and the Rajyastthana-
dhipati occupies a Kendra. The mutual aspect between the
lords of the 9th and 10th is not complete as the birth in question
is tome time after the full Moon. Hence the Rajayoga is not
complete. Yet, the native will be credited with a good position
in life as the Sun aspects the 10th, his own house,
This happiness is not continuous, as the Sun is aspected by
the malefic. Mars, the lord of the 6th ; Venus, the lord of the
12th is in exaltaion and therefore is full with his rays. He over-
powers Jupiter, his enemy, who notwithstanding his occupation
of his own house, becomes a subject to this Venus, For people
born under Vrischika, Jupiter and the luminaries are benefic?
Unfortunately, Jupiter loses his power in the present case as a
consequence of his association with the lord of a Dusstthana
(IV2 Supra), The native lost he fine appointment the had

<iuring Jupiters'Dasa. His daughters were driven out of their


husbands' houses and have come to their father's house. That
this must be so can be seen by the fact that Jupiter plays the
role of Putrastthanadhipati and Putrakaraka. The aspect of
Saturn (lord of the 12th reckoned from the 5th) over Jypiter
{lord of the 5th), and the association of Venus (lord of the 8th
f rbm the 5th) with Jupiter proved detrimental to the happiness
of the issue. As a consequence of all these Avayogas, the native
would have gained ample experience in life and will be entering
tht first Steps in philosophical world as the lord of the 9th ^and
the Soul (Sun) are having mutual aspects and also as Jupiter
and Saturn-^the 2 philosophical planetsare haying mutual
aspects. In general, philosophy appeals to men, only at adverse
periods.
The native has got good longevity as Rahu is alone in Mesha.

will be crippled and suffer diseases etc. causing intense

Saturn is retrograde.

By a look at the chart, we see that the Moon, a female^


planet, occupies the mid-heaven identical with her exaltation and
Moolatrikona Rasi, She has not yet lost her digits. Mars, the
Yogakaraka, occupies the 4th Kendra, his own camp, and is in
VargottamEimsa, Four planets other than these two occupy their
respective exaltation Navamsas.

Though the rising Rasi and Navamsa are masculine in natutre


the native's life was more of feminine disposition ;>s the two
female planets^Venus and the Moonare very well-placed.
The second Bhava indicates the nature of the face of the iiativC'
and it is occupied by a powerful Venus (as he occupies his
exaltation Navamsa). The native will have a very handsome
appearance. The 10th house is occupied by the exalted Mooii
and is aspected by the Yogakaraka, Mars.

Regarding the occupation of the native, the positions of the


planets, responsible for giving him the status he had, are not-
worthy. The 10th house is an even Rasi; it contains a female
planet who is posited in her favourite constellationRohini.
The lord of the 10th, aoot her female planet, occupies the 2nd
SI. 16|] <^l4i<:4<'l"g; 18^

Bhava, an even Rasi, and in an even Navamsa. The other planet


that is connected with the 10th house'^is Mars. He is also posited
in an even Rasi and in an even Navamsa. The other two male
planets viz., Jupiter and the Sun, have no connection with this
house. The inference to be drawn from these factors is that
the native must have been holding a status which will be
solely ^feminine in nature. In fact, he was the owner of a
dramatic troupe and earned a good lot of money by his playing
the role of the heroine in all the dramas he staged. The
Parivartana between the 2nd and the 3rd lords is noteworthy.

The Dasa of the Yogakaraka which occurred in his teens


proved a training ground and a stepping stone for his rise.
Rahu's Dasa proved most beneficial as he is conjoined with the
lord of the 10th (VI15J16in a dual Rasi and unaspected
by malefics. The winter of his career occurred in the beginnings
of Saturn's Dasa alone, as Saturn, the lord of the 6th, cast his-
complete evil glance over the Lagna. It has to be noted that
for people born in Simha Lagna, Saturn is the most harmful
planet. From the status of a millionaire, the native was reduced
to a practically poor man. The Dasas of such planets owning
Dusstthanas are nearly destructive and such incidents teach,
people that life is not a bed of roses always, but is full of thorns
also.

The horoscope in the next page belongs to a retired official of


the Madras Government. The lord of the Lagna is in the 2nd house
in conjunction with the lord of the 4th, the Sun. This ensures
the native good wealth and prosperity coupled with happiness.
Jupiter, the lord of the llth, in conjunction with the Moon is
good. But the conjunction is not productive of such a good
result as the planets are 15 apart. (IV32).

Regarding the prominence or position in life which the
native is entitled, the one pitiable situation is the position of
Saturn, the Yogakaraka, in the 12th, in debilitation which shows
that the native will not be favoured by luck. Saturn having
occupied the Vyaya Bhava, his aspect over the 2nd Bhava is
destructive to that Bhava. Venus, though he is the lord of the
Lagna cannot be ignored as he is also the lord of the 6th (a
Dusstthana). His presence in the Dhana Bhava in conjunction
with the Sun, the lord of the 4th, aspected by Saturn in the 12th
jS not at all beneficial to that Bhava. Venus's duty, as the lord
of the 1st in the 2nd, is to give the native wealth in the initial
part of his Dasa, and his (Venus's) duty, as the lord of the 6th in
conjunction with the lord of the 4th in the 2nd, will be to destroy
jhe wealth already acquired (IV-2) and thus the happiness of the
native is marred. Note also that the native got wealth through
the help of Venus in the former portion of his Dasa, and the
same planet worked for its destruction in the latter portion,
l^ote also thai Venus is eclipsed in the house of wealth.

Saturn, lord of the lOth, is in the 12th. Mars, the lord of


the 12th, casts his evil glance on the 10th. The 10th house
signifies honour and profession. Now the evil aspect which the
lord of the 10th casts on Venus (who is the lord of the Lagnajf
SI. 16J] 187

and the evil aspect which Mars casts on the swac house (10th) go
to show that his official position was affected. Note also that the
9th house Bhagya is badly affected by the aspect of Mars.

It will not be out of place to note here that Saturn, the


fortunegivcr for this horoscope synchronises with his duties as
the Pitrukaraka and the Pitrusttanadhipati. His aspect over
that Pitrusttana and over the lord of the Lagna (posited in the
Dhana Bhava) shows that the native will have to lose all the
patrimony that came to his share (why 1 because, Saturn is in the
12th),

Mercury, the lord of the 2nd and the 5th, and posited in his
inimical sign in conjunction with Mars (lord of the 12th), his
enemy, goes to show how the 2nd and the 5th Bhavas are affected.
But it is gratifying to note that the affliction referred to is not so
acute as the two planets arc 15 apart, at the same time being
aspected by a strong Jupiter, the Putrakaraka. Ketu is posited
in a dual Rasi in conjunction with Venus and the Sun, the lords
of the 6th and 4th Bhavas respectively. This brought about the
demise of his mother in his Ketu Dasa (VI15^-16^). The
benefic aspect bestowed by Jupiter (lord of the llth in coRJunc-
tion with the Moon the lord of the 3rd) over Mars, the Bhratru-.
karaka shows the affection he would receive from all his brothers
and sisters.

The death took place in the Moon's Dasa, Mercury's Bhu-


kti Ketu's Antara.

This life began in Saturn and indeed in the Moon's period.


Saturn is in the 12th from the Ascendant, and tha Moon in the
12th from Saturn. Mercury being in Pushya 2 forms one of the
corners of the equilateral triangle from Uttarabhadra 2, the
natal Star of the native, and thus acquires the qualities of
Saturn, the lord of this star. Ketu is in Ardra 3, a star ruled
188 HTir^siii:^ [Khanda VI

by Rahu, who is similar to Saturn. This justifies the death


happening in the above period, as all the planets responsible for
the incident have acquired Saturn's qualities ; for Saturn is the
-embodiment of Yama, the God of Death.

posited in a fixed or a moveable Rasi and conjoined
with planets owning a Kendra or a Trikona place will
be productive of good fortune during the Dasa of one
of the two occupying an auspicious house, (b) If they
be in a malefic house, they will not cause any good
effect - some are however of opinion that they will
bring happiness. If these two should occupy malefic
houses in company with benefics, they become instru-

the 6th, 8th or 12th house and be conjoined with or
aspected by any of the lords of these houses, they
begin to afflict the native during their Dasas. If they
.conjoin with m^.^ (Maraka) planets or with the lords of
the Dusstthanas, they bring about the death of the
native. If they be associated with the lords of Kendra
and Kona houses and be posited in the Dussthanas,
they cause some happines and then bring on death
through diseases, wounds, misery sword-cuts, drow-
ning or suicide.

The chart printed above belongs to a gentleman who had
many disappointments as a result of which he forced his end by
drowning himself in a lake.
By a look at the chart, two unfortunate positions are visible.
The lord of the 12th is in the 2nd. The YogakarakaSaturn-
has gone to the 12th. However much the native may earn, his
190 <iTi^41<j}|^^ [Khanda VI

balance would always have been on the negative side. This


situation would not have been a result of a charitable disposition,
but would have been all self-imposed.
(a) Jupiter, lord of the 3rd is in the 8th, aspected by Mars,
a malefic ; (b) Saturn and Ketu2 maleficsare in the 12th; (c)
the lord of the Lagna and the Sun are both posited in their in-
raical houses, (d) Mercury, lord of the Sth from the Chandra
Lagna is aspected by Saturn. All these are Alpayuryogas.
Mars occupies the Ascendant in conjunction with Saturn
(the interval being only 4, though Saturn is in the 12th). The
conjunction of these two veritable malefics has brought about
death by suicide (as a result of extreme sorrow).
Now Ketu is posited in the 12th in conjunction with Saturn,
the lord of a Kendra and a Kona. The demise of the native
was by drowning, in the tail end of Mercury's Dasa (lord of the
12th, posited in the 2nd), Further, the aspect of Jupiter (lord
of the 6th, posited in the 8th), over Ketu posited in the 12th is
another support for this statement. (VI17J18J).

auspicious, while those of planets owning the 2nd, 3rd

196 [Khanda' VI

Slokas 28}29\. If Venus and Saturn posited in


their exaltition, Swakshetra or Vargottamamsa be
.strong and equally powerful to cause Yoga, they will,
in their mutual Dasas and Bhuktis, make the native a
"beggar seeking alms and a powerless being, even if he
Tbe born a king or a Kubera. Should however one of
the two be strong and the other weak, the stronger one
-will give the Yoga.
We shall take the opportunity to point out the importance
-of this Sloka by suitable examples.
Venus and Saturn are natural friends and any student of
.astrology will expect good results in their mutual Dasas and
Bhuktis. But the sense contained in this sloka is contrary to the
-above statement. If the two planets are well placed, the Bhukti
of Venus in Saturn's Dasa and vice versa will be the worst
periods the native can possibly expect. The stronger the two
planets are, the worse will be the r ffect.

Let us consider the charts 30 and 79. Both the persons had
Sukra Dasa during their lives. In the case of chart 30, Sukra
X)asa, Sani Bhukti, occurred between 1916 September and 1919
JvTovember. The native lost his 16 year old daughter at the begiii-
uing of Saturn's Bhukti. The rest of his family were all then laid
up with severe typhoid. With the meagre pay he was drawing,
lie had to meet very heavy expenses specially because the period
was that of the Great War : Thanks to the fact that Saturn in the
SI. 31^; 197

-chart under reference was the owner of the 8th house also, the
Bhukti wound up to a better aspect.
In the case of chart 79, the Bhukti of Saturn in Venus's Dasa
occurred between October 1926 and December 1929. This was
the worst period for the native. Government was against him ;
a sort of royal displeasure and disappointment in life, and a fall
from his original position, were some of his most bitter
-experiences.

SloJcas 29^30J. If both of them be weak and be


-so mutually placed that one occupies the 12th, the 8th or
the 6th from the other, or happen to be owners of such
places ; or be conjonined with the lords of these houses,
they become auspicious and confer wealth and happiness
on the native. If one of them own an auspicious house
and the other an unfavourable one, even then, both of
them will produce good effects. If they are both male-
fics, they will prove extremely favourable to the native.

reference to the strengthpositional etc.of the

aspects on the same (planet).
The system that is described in the two foregoing Slokas en-
ables the reader to have a clear idea as to how his position in
life will be in any particular year. The system is unique by itself.
The horoscope for any particular year depends upon the exact
time at which the Sun, during his transit, comes to the position
he had occupied at the time of birth. The process of casting
such annual horoscopes consists in finding the exact time at
which the Sun arrives at his old position in the year concerned.
This time marks the beginning of the native's new year.

The birth in question being at Sunrise, the Sun is posited in

nativity : (1) Mars, the Yogakaraka, occupies the centre of the
2nd Dhana Bhava ; (2) the Sun, the lord of the 2nd, is posited
exactly in the Ascendant; (3) The Yogakaraka is in the 10th
Kendra exactly with respect to the lord of the Lagna, and thus
the aspect of Mars over the Moon is full. From this, it will be

clear that the power wielded by the native will be immense. The
native will have to earn more by wielding power in some admini-
strative capacity in virtue of the position of the Yogakaraka. So
much of stress had to be laid on the above statament,'*because
the rising planet is the Rajyakaraka. The inheritance of the
native will also be good as Jupiter, the lord of the 9th (house
of Father) occupies the 2nd in conjunction with Mars, the Yoga-
karaka, while the Sun, the Pitrukaraka and the lord of the 2nd,
is in the Lagna. The above "Statement will have to lose some of
its force as the conjunction of the said planets has been marred
by the inclusion of Mercury, the lord of the 12th.
. Regarding the position of the Moon, the presence of Mars,
lord of the Rasi occupied by the Moon, in Kendra position witit
Yespect to her elevates the native to a considerably high position,
the effect due to depression being nullified Paladeepika VII-

The aspect of Saturn, the lord of the Sth, over the Dhana
Bhava and the 7th is not so good. The conjunction of the lords-
of the 6th and the 12th in the 2nd Bhava is a very strong Dhana
yoga. The presence of the two nodes of the Moon in Kendraa^
will surely bring the native to prominence.

The nature of the year under consideration for the native is


to be discussed from the annual chart given in the previous page.
It is to be understood that the natTire of the Lagna will
.always give an indication as to the nature of that particular year.
At the outset, the year augurs bad, as the lord of the Lagna has
-exchanged place with the lord of the 12th. To add to this, we
have the complete aspect of Venus, the lord of the Sth, over the
Ascendant. Venus, being the lord of the 3rd, is aspected by
Saturn, the lord of the 12th, and is without any benefiic aspect.
The 3rd house also is aspected by Saturn. Saturn, the lord of
the llth, receives the aspect of Venus, the lord of the 8th. The
5un, the lord of the 6th, aspects the llth. The 3rd house and
Mercury denote the after borns (V4, 36), while the llth and
Jupiter, the eldest brother (V19, 39). The year under refe-
rence will thereford be a bit unfavourable to the native's brothers
(younger as well as elder).
The Sun, the lord of the 6th, is posited in the Sth, thus indi-
eating that the native's childern will not be keeping good health.
The year is not beneficial to the native's partner also, as the lord
of the 7th has gone to the 6th. Venus the lord of a Dusstthana,
.is posited in the 7th, and the 7th is badly aspected by Saturn
^the lord of the 12th). Much of the strain of this unfavourable-
ness will have to be borne by the native himself, as all these
^bove remarks are made with reference to the native's chart,
the presence of Saturn may cause lot of expenditure mostly
unexpected.
Coming to the particular periods, the year begins with Mer-
cury's Dasa. He is gone to the 6th which is the 12th from the
JCalatra Lagna. The native will have to pass a difficult time,
the difficulty being mostly due to his partner. The severity is
.considerably reduced as Mercury is aspected by Jupiter.
The next period is that of Jupiter. The native ought to
have got the best he could get during this year as Jupiter governs
the native's position and body. But the position of Jupiter in
the 12th will have to cause some disappointment in this direction.
'To support it; ':MS Jupiter is badly aspected by Mars who is
206 ^Ti<l.MHi^ [Khanda VI

conjoined with the lord of the 6th. Particularly during Jupiter's-


period, the native will have to experience anxiety on account
of his eldest brother, as Jupiter, the planet representing the
eldest brother, has gone to the 12th and is aspected by Mercury
in the 6th.
Nothing good can be expected during the period of Venus-
as this planet rules over the Sth house and is further aspected by
a powterful Saturn. Venus in the capacity of the ownership Of
the 3rd may cause ill-health and some distress to the brothers of
the native during his Dasa.
Saturn's period will be an anxious one so for as the health
of the native's elder brother is concerned, as Saturn is the lord-
of the llth and is aspected by the lord of the 8th.
But Rahu's Dasa will be cerainly better than that of Saturn-
as Rahu is aspected by Jupiter.
Next comes the Lagna Dasa. The nature of this depends'
much on Jupiter about whom comment has already been made.
The Sun's Dasa may cause ill health to the native's children
as he is the lord of the 6th and is posited in the Sth.
The only period during which the native will get some peace-
of mind is that ruled by the planet representing the mind, that is-
the Moon. She is best placed, being aspected by Mars, her
friend, the lord of the 2nd and the 9th. She has escaped the Sun's-
aspcct (the Moon is in the 6th degree of Makara while the Suni
in the 24th degree of Katrka). The Sun happens to own the Stht
The Dasa of Mars will also be good as he is aspected by the
Moon, the lord of the Sth, though not so good as that of the
Moon as he is eclipsed by the Sun's (lord of the 6th) rays.
In conclusion, we shall have to infer that the whole year
will not be a happy and a peaceful one. The various incidents
which the native will have to come across during this year, will
make the native put on an appearance of entire resignation
towards the doings of these variour planets, as Jupiter ahif
Saturnthe two philosophical planets-have exchanged position,*-

ation should also be given to the effects that may be
caused by planets transitting during their course the
.several houses reckoned from the '5FTI?:i% (Janma Rasi)
radix Moon, and the conjoined effects alone should be
predicted. I am now going to describe in a fine and'
^asy manner the accurate effects of the several Dasas
iluring a year.

Sloalcs 37|3|. When the Sun is strong, there


will be accumulation of wealth, acquisition of ornaments
and wearing of new apparel. If the Sun be weak, there
will be increase of sin and enemies, loss of wealth and
.springing up of new troubles. When the Moon is
strong, there will be royal favour, incessant flowing in
-of money and a position of honour. When the Moon
is weak, more enemies will turn up. The person will
.suffer from sickness; there will also be change of place^
.misery and misunderstanding with one's people.
208 [Khanda VI

Slohas 38i39j. If Mars be endowed with strengths-


there will be royal favour, success in life and domestic
happiness. When Mars is weak, there will be dis--
pleasure from the ' sovereign, quarrel with one's owrt
sons, enmity with one's wife and decay of wealth..
When Mercury is very strong, the person concerned
will be energetic. He will enjoy more happiness and
there will be more gain. If Mercury be weak, there
will result misunderstandings with one's brothers, etc.
He will take to bad ways and will do mischief to the-
Brahmin folk.

Slokas 39^40^. When Jupiter is fully powerful^


the person will comnuaid good vehicles, and houses. He
will be munificent, posses good intellect and much
wealth. If Jupiter be weak, there will be change of
place and also loss of wealth. He will further go into*
bad ways and evil asssociations. When Venus is-
possessed of much strength, there will be influx of wealth
and fame. The native will have good white robes and
female company. When Venus is weak, there will be
loss of wealth danger from enemies, diseases through,
females and ill-fame.

will acquire a good house, and be happy ; he will also
become the headman or leader of a wild tribe. If Saturn
be weak, there will be destruction of wealth, emaciation
of the body, disease and ill-fame. When Rahu is strong^
he will make the native do good and virtuous acts, get
good income and rise in his official position. When he
is unfavourable the effect likewise will be bad ; there
may happen the demise of the father. The person will
further befriend base people and associate with his
enemies.

declared in an elegant and concise manner the effects
of the severalDasas in a year. Intelligent men should

SECTION 7. On Queries.

Sloka 1, Thus should all the effects be predicted in


the case of a nativity through the positions of the seve-
ral planets and the Lagna at the time. In the absence
of the horoscope, the effects should be divined through
the Lagna rising at the time of query. There will be
no difference between the effects derived through the
horoscope at birth or through the time of query. If the
day be clouded at the time and the exact Ghatilcas that
have elapsed since Sunrise be not readily available, the
several Rasis and Navamsas should be determined by
further queries (as detailed in the next 3 slokas).

astrologer after salutations to the feet of his preceptor,

Sloka 3. The basic number aforesaid should be


divided by 9; the quotient represents the number of
Rasis from Mesha that have elapsed, and the remainder
represents the number of Navamsas elapsed in the
Lagna at the time of query. The planets and the
Bhavas at the time should be determined and effects
good as well as badshould be predicted as before
through the strongest of the following :the Karakas
the Bhavas and the lords of the Bhavas at the time.

that had been handed over to him by the querist, the
212 3TR^I^ [Khanda VII

astrologer should multiply by the basic number and


divide the product by 12. The remainder will signify
the Rasi reckoned from Mesha in which Jupiter was
posited in the querist's nativity. Through the position
of Jupiter at the time of query, the astrologer can
easily guess the age by a look at the querist and the
probable number of cycles made by Jupiter since the
birth-time of the querist. The months, days, etc. that
have elapsed (since the last birthday), will be revealed
Ijy the portion of the Rasi traversed by Jupiter in the
Rasi occupied by him at the time of query. The total
period thus obtained is to be subtracted from the
present position of the Sun to get the year, month,
etc. of the birth in question.

Moon's position, the lunar years, month, Tithi, etc.,
and hence the whole horoscope can be obtained. Thus
has been described briefly the process of casting a lost-
horoscope. The method to get at a horoscope has thus
been chalked out for the delectation of those interested
in the science.
Thus ends the method for casting Lost-Horoscopes.

Sloka 6- Multiply the basic number by 2 and
divide the product by 3. If the remainder be 1, the
query is about a living being ; if it be 2, it relates to
some mineral. If it be zero, it realtes to a plant.
When the Lagna at query is Mesha, the matter relates
to bipeds. If it be Vrishabha, it relates to quadrupeds;,
if the Lagna be Mithuna, it is about pregnancy. When,
Karkataka is rising, the subject relates to a legal
dispute. When the Lagna is Simha, the matter
relates to Government.

Sloka 7. If Kanya be the Lagna, the query relates
to an intrigue with a woman other than one's wife. The
subject will be about trading, when Tula is rising. If
Vrischika be rising, there will be fear from the wicked.
It will relate to wealth lost when sign Dhanus is rising.
Some sinful deed will be the subject, if Makara be the
Lagna. If Kumbha is rising, it will be about some
religious rites. If Meena be the Lagna, it will relate
214 g=gT^)jnjt [Khanda VI

to position and residence. Thus sages say that it


should be declared through the stronger of the twoviz.^
Rasi and Navamsarising at the time.

Sloka <S. If at the time of query, the Sun occupies


his own Rasi or Navamsa whichever is stronger, the
query relates to Sovereign and Icingdom. If the Moon
be in a similar position, it relates to tanks and the like.-
If it be Mars, the question is about fire and danger
from the king or enemies. Mercury, similarly situated
will relate to trade and agriculture. Jupiter will refer'
to friends, king and the like. Venus will point to more
happiness ; while Saturn in such a position will relate
to a human being or immoveable property.

Sloka 9. Similarly, if a planet be exalted, the


effect will be doubled ; if debilitated, the effect will be
nil. When the planet is in a friend's house, the effect
will be half; in a neutral's house, it will be very low^
SI. 11] 215

If two planets are exalted, or be in their Swakshetra


Rasis, the query !should be answered by a wiseman
after a reference to the stronger of the two and the
corresponding spi?;^ (Karaka) and the Bhava occupied by
each of them,

Sloka 10. If a planet be exalted at the time, the


business will be accomplished in a few Ghatikas; if
occupying his own house,':the business will be done in a
few days; if quartered in a friendly house, it will be
finished in a few months. Otherwise, it will take some
years. If the planet be in any other position, in con-
junction with or aspected by a malefic, failure of the
object will have to be predicted. If Saturn be exalted
in the Lagna, or if the lords of the Lagna and tlie
Bhava indicating the nature of the query be conjoined
with, or aspected by strong benefics, the immediate
.accomplishment of the business should be predicted.

Sloka 11. The horizon is a circle consisting of 360


.degrees and there are 12 spokes each at an interval of
30 ; and the 108 Navamsas are permantly located in
the same. The four pairs of moveable and immoveable
signs beginning with Mesha represent the East and other
principal points of the compass in order. The four dual
signs, viz., Mithuna, Kanya, Dhanus and Meena signify
respectively the four intermediate points, viz., S. E . ,
S. W., N . W. and N. E . The astrologer should enter in
the concerned Rasis and Navamsas the several planets
according to their exact longitudes at the time.

Slola 12. If a person, with flowers, fruits, etc,


(visible) in his hand, should approach the astrologer and
standing in a place puts a query, the Rasi indicated by
that place with respect to the astrologer as apportion-
ment alluded to in the last sloka is called the sr^S^
(Arudha Lagna) at query, and the astrologer should
predict in all such queries the effects-good or bad as
the case may bethrough the planets owning the
QT^3i7 (Arudha Lagna) and the house representing the
nature of the query with special reference to the planets
conjoined with them or aspecting them.

Sloka 13. Find the Ghatikas that have elapsed
from Sunrise at the time of query. Multiply the same
by 9 and divide the product by 20. The quotient in
Ghatikas, etc., will represent the exact position of the
Moon at the time, which will be useful for purposes
of query. The position of the Moon at the time as
revealed in the Ephemeris and the Moon above referred
to are respectively known as (Stthula) and
(Sukshma). Their respective Navamsas should also be
determined.

'j^i^^s^snsT^ jnfl# II ? M i
Slokas 1415. When the (Stthula) Moon is
aspected by the (Sukshma) Moon, Mercury and
Jupiter, the query is about an animal, If aspected by
28
218 i-d<*|<*|Jic( [Khanda VII

Mars, Rahu and Saturn, it is about a mineral. If by


Venus and the Sun, it relates to something of the vege-
table kind. When the (Stthula) Moon is aspected
by Jupiter, Venus and Rahu, the query relates to some-
thing of a mixed nature. If the (Stthula) Moon be
posited in Tula, Kanya or Mithuna Navamsa, the query
concerns a biped. If in a Navamsa, owned by Karka-
taka, Vrichika or Meena, it relates to some creature of
many legs. If the ^qj^ (Stthula) Moon is quartered in a
Navamsa owned by Dhanus or Kumbha, it is about
some creature devoid of legs ; if in a Navamsa owned
by Mesha, Simha, Makara or Vrishabha, it relates to a
quadruped, The 3 Avastthas (eRRsnO of a planet, viz.,
(Bala), qJ^iR (Yauvana) and ^ (Vridha) are to be
deduced from the planet's position in the 1st, 2nd and
.3rd decanate respectively of the Rasi in which it is at
the time of query. So say the ancient sages.

Sloka 16. The signs from Mesha onwards are res


pectively moveable, immoveable and dual. The
moveable Rasis are also termed ij^l (Garbha). The
immoveable ones are known as (Dwara), while the
dual Rasis are called ^ (Bahya). The signs indicated
by the two classes, viz., TW (Garbha) and 5ii (Dwara)
will denote a thing or object kept in the right hand,
SI. 18] 219

while a sign of the ^ (Bahya) class will indicate the


same in the left hand. This is the way by which things
hidden in the hand should be distinguished.

Sloka 17. Thus should be guessed all about a thing


enclosed in the hand. Whether the object is short
or long should be guessed through the measure
allotted to the Rasi concerned. The shape, colour,
etc., are to be deduced from the Navamsas. The bene-
fic or malefic nature of the object should be divined
through the nature of the planetbenefic or malefic
occupying the Rasi; so also the place frequented by
the objectwhether on the land, sky, water or moun-
tains, and whether it is cruel, wild, tame or domestic,
etc.

Sloka 18. The basic number aready referred to


must be divided by 5. The remainder, if it be 1, 2, 3, 4
or 5, will respectively denote whether the thing referred
to by the querist will be accomplished within the
220 STR^Jrapjl [Khanda VII

Ghatikas, the Tithi, the week-day, the month and the


year. Add the quotient already obtained to the basic
number. Divide the sum so obtained by 60, 30, 7, 12
and 60 separately. The rmeainders will respectively
denote the number of Ghatikas, Tithi, etc., in which the
desired object will be completed. This is the method
to be adopted in the case of all kinds of queries.

Sloka 19. If the lords of the Lagna and the Bhava
representing the object of the query be benefic, occupy
good houses and mutually aspect each other by any
kind of aspect referred to in ^fetRgj^o^ (Drishtiphala-
Tchanda I I 1 7 j t h e range of applying aspect
being within 12, the astrologer may as before predict
the successful fulfilment of the object in pro-
portion to the strength, propitiousness, etc., of the
two planets alluded to above, due consideration being
given to the nature of the aspect, viz., best, medium
-or worst (as defined in IV33 supra). The strength of
the ^\x^ (Karaka) planet should also be simultaneously
considered and effect predicted. Further, if there be
any planet posited between the two lords mentioned
above, having an applying aspect with either of the two
within the range of 12, prediction may also be made
^hrough that planet regarding the nature, functions,
SI. 18] 221

tc., attributed to the planet (in the Karakatva


Khanda V, Sloka 22j54|). The period of fulfilment
may be guessed as per sloka 18 above.
This is an important sloka. Here the author has very briefly
condensed the essential points governing Prasnaphalanirupana
determining the eflfects of the query). When a querist consults
an astrologer on any point, for example, whether he will have
issue, it has been usual with the astrologers to conclude their
prediction on the merits of the Lagnapathe planet owning the
Rasi rising at the time of query and the the lord of the Prasna-
bhavain this particular case, the lord of the Sth house and the
ICaraka planet (in this case, Jupiter, the Putrakaraka). It has
been found that in many cases, the prediction have miserably
failed though all the three planets were very favourably situated
and this would perplex the astrologer and make him lose faith
in the princiniples. In this sloka, another important condition
is stated in addition to the above strength, and this is nothinj; but
the importance attached to the applying aspect and which has
been copied in the Western ascrology.

Two cases are to be considered here :


Case I. The Lagnapa and Karyapa should have applying
.aspects of any of the kinds described in the (Drishtiphala
.dhyayai. e., 1st, 3rd, 4th, Sth, 7th, and 10th Rasi aspects) for
the success ol the object under query. If all the said planets
.are powerful and ' there is a separating aspect, the good effects
need not be predicted. The range of aspect may be taken as 12.
1. If this range is zero, the event will have happened at
the time of query.
2. If it is within 12, shortly.
3. If it exceeds 12, it may not happen in the near
future, but may happen at a far oft' future date.
If the conditions stated above for the success of the thava
are satisfied, the degree of the success should be predicted on
the strength and auspiciousness of the planets.
222 d'Tii;tHH4j;^ [Khanda VII

If in addition to the above conditions, there is another


planet between the two, aspecting (applying aspect) any one of
the said two planets, the success of the object will be achieved
very easily by one's own efforts and through the medium of the
intervening planet. The nature, caste, etc., attributed to this
intermediary planet will guide the astrologer in describing the
details of the intervener.
Case II. In the Jataka Sastra, this point has been elabo-
rately explained. It is said that even if the two planets do not
aspect each other, the success, entirely due to the help rendered
by a third person may be predicted if the two planets have the
applying non-aspect within the 12 degree-range and the third
planet has an applying aspect with any of them*
For example :
A querist asks whether he will be married or not.
Illustration for Case I. Suppose the Lagna falls in Dhanus
with Jupiter 12^, and Mercury in Kanya 5. As he questions about
marriage, the Parsnabhava is 7th in this case Mithuna and its
lord Mercury is exalted in Kanya 5 ; he is Karyadhipa in this
case. Jupiter, the Lagnadhipa, is powerfully placed in the Lagna
and in his Moolatrikona. The two planets have no prescribed
aspects, but have 4th and 10th Rasi aspects. As Mercury, a
faster planet, is placed (12 minus 5) 7 behind the slow planet
(i.e.. Mercury has an applying aspect on Jupiter) and as the
difference docs not exceed the limit of 12, it may be safely
predicted that he will have marriage with a prosperous girl and
that the event will happen without much exertion for the same
and without the help of an outsider.
If in addition, suppose the Moon is placed in Meena 2, then
the event will be hastened as the Moon aspects (applying) both
Mercury and Jupiter, and a third party, i.e., a female having the
characteristics of the Moon, will accelerate the happening of
the event.
All these results have to be based on the position, aspect,
etc., of these planets.
Sll 223

Suppose, in the above example, Mercury has 12 and Jupiter


5; then, failure in the attempt has to be predicted though all
other conditions are satisfactory, as the aspect is a separating
-one.
Illustration for Case II. Suppose Mercury is placed in
Mithuna 15 and Jupiter in Kataka 18. As the two planets are
placed in 2nd and 12th from each other, they do not aspect each
othei, but they have the applying non-aspect within a range of
,{18 minus 15) 3 degrees. Suppose the Moon is in Meena 1C.
As the Moon has applying 4th and Sth aspect on Mercury and
Jupiter respectively, the object will be accomplished with the
help of a third party whose character has to be read out from
the Moon.
In addition to these, there are 16 Yogas elaborately descri-
bed in Tajika Neelakanthi on this subject and the interested
reader may refer to that book.
In this way all the queries must be properly answered with
due consideration of the points stated above.

girl will very soon attain her puberty and prove a happy

also become fit for sexual intercourse and will possess

SloJca 5. If a birth happens when the Moon is in
Aslesha and Magha, the effects will be as stated below:
For a child born in the 1st, 2nd 3rd or 4th q]^ [Pada]
of Aslesha, there will be [1] destruction of wealth [2]
loss of brother [3] demise of mother or [4] death of
father respectively. If the birth be towards the very end
of Aslesha, the child itself may take its departure. To
ward off the [Dosha-harm] above alluded to, one
must propitiate God Rudra, Gods q;|g [Kala],
[Antaka] and ^ [Mrityu], as per rules. If the birth
takes place in [Magha] in the lst,'2nd, 3rd or 4th
-qi^ [Pada] the effect will be the reverse of what has
been stated in the case of sn-^^ [Aslesha] above.

Sloka 6. The effects will be lilcewise if the birth


happens when the Moon is in 3 ^ [Jyestha] and

above said three pairs, the last degree of Aslesha,
Jyestha and Revati and the first degree of Magha,

happening therein will soon cause the demise of the
child. Should however the child survive, he will be a
king or emperor possessing surpassing valour.

Sloha 7. If a girl should attain maturity at such a


juncture, she will soon become a widow and will be
devoid of issue, wealth, happiness and clothing. She
will be of bad disposition and a bane on her father's
family. These can be averted and she can soon be
made to bring happiness and luck, and bear children
too, if proper propitiation to Gods, Brahmins and
planets be made according the Vedic rites by Japa,

Sloha 48. If the Sun and the Moon are together
in a star ruled by the Moon at the time (vide Sloka 45
supra), it means there is treasure. If two planets are
jn a star ruled by the Sun, treasure will contain bones.

If the Sun and the Moon interchange their places,


nothing will be found. If the Moon be conjoined with
malefics, the person cannot get the treasure ; if conjo-
ined with benefics, he will get it. The depth of-the
interned treasure is to be guessed in units of a hand's*
length, by the number of degrees passed by the Moon
in the star.

Sloka 1. A man who has observed celibacy flaw-
lessly and sincerely studying the sacred texts prescribed
for his line should marry a charming girl who is endo-
wed with good physical features, who pleases his heart,
who has not been already married to somebody else,
who is not of the same age (is much younger than he)^
who does not bad within the group of relations that
deserve funeral libation from him, is free from diseases
who belongs to a different Gotra and Pravara, who is
free from bad diseases like leprosy, who is not more
than ten years of age and who is delightful both to the
heait and eyes.
NoteAccording to Sage Manu one should devote twelve years
of celibacy for each of the three Vedas, or six years, or at least
three years. A Brahmachari should learn at least thatparticular
Veda which is prescribed for his family. His celibacy should not
be spoiled by contact with women, wine, meat, etc. Regarding

This Sapindya lasts for seven generations in the case of men. It


is to be taken both ways before and after the person concerned.

Sloka 2. Three (venerations, viz., father, grancf


father and great grand father, are entitledto-the funeral
offering of Pinda and three others prior to them are
entitled to the Pindalepa, what is applied to the Pinda
such as ghee. The person concerned becomes the 7th.
This is called single Sapindya in a family. Find out
the generation at which the family becomes different
with respect to the bri and bridegroom. This diffe-
rence of family must be counted as far as the 7th and
the 5th remove from the father and mother respectively
I of the twobride and bridegroom.
NoteThose who are related by blood to any of the six
generations become mutually Sapindas,

^^sri^fi%^^5H^1r^lciHf Wix \\\\\


\ Sloka 3. In the case of the children of a man or
' womaii, or in the case of the bride and bridegroom, the
-*^-^^nda relationship should be taken.into consideration
~~ r as the 7th remove from the father of the concerned
255

person and the 5th remove from the mother, and within
that group, marital alliance ought to be rejected. Be-
yond that, there is no objection to the alliance. If the
Sapindya retires (ceases) at a certain stage for one
party, it does so for the other also. This is the rule
to be observed in malcing marital alliance between
two parties.
Cf. ^fqoScTI g g't^f JTl^: ^RTN^^ ll
O n the authority of this, Kullukabhatta says that mother's father
though connected with Pinda is not Sapinda, as his Gotra.is
different.

Sloka 4. According to some, the fourth (from the
mother) is excepted ; i. e., only three generations are
forbidden for marriage and from the fourth onwards,
there is no objection, but one ought to shun those girls
that stand in the relationship of sisters, mothers and
daughters. Similary, marital alliance may be entered
into between the sixth generation in one line and the
fifth in the other, and between the fifth and fifth gene-
rations, provided the girl does not come under the
relationship of a sister to the boy. In the countries of
Utkala (Orissa) and Dravida (Tamil), marriage between
parties of the third generations is permissible, but it is
not applicable to all places. If the bride happens to
belong to the sixth or eighth generation in the line of
the bridegroom, the prohibition disappears completely.
256

Sloka 5. Always the reckoning must be made with


reference to the common fore-father of the parties, and
the rule about the Sapindya should not be violated. So
too the violation of the standards of particular families
and countries sLcdd be avoided. The relationship with
the othe family must be investigated through all the
available connections. The word 'Sapinda means one
who has equal relationship witli the Pinda or body of
the common forefather, since the body consists of six
sheaths, bones, muscles and marrow derived from the
father and skin, flesh and blood from the mother. If
this common relationship is not of a binding character,
or, though strong, still if there is no question of the
Inheritance of property (of the common men), marri-
age is permissible.

Sloka 6. If a woman deserts her husband and re-
sorts to somebody else, the husband may marry her own
sister, in case be has a desire for progeny. This is an
exception to the rule that a person's daughters should not
be married to the same family or sons of the same
257

parents. Similarly, if there are twin sisters, they can


be simultaneously married to twin brothers in the
regular order.

Sloka 7. If a man begets children through his


second wife, then the son born of his first wife gets
Sapindya relationship with her for three generations.
In case that woman is issueless, the daughter of her
paternal uncle will not at all stand in the relationship
of a mother to the son referred to above, i.e., he can
marry her, though apparently she is a mother lo him,
being the cousin of his step-mother. The step-mother's
sister's daughter too will not be a sister to him. So
he may marry her as well.

Sloka <9. Those who marry girls who become


sisters to them owing to their father and mother be-
longing, to the 7th and 5th generations respectively,
are reduced to the condition of Sudras in this very life,
Eyeii if they are not fallen, they reduce their parents
and others to a lower status, i. e., they become fallen.

Sloka .9. After the departure of the Sapindya
relationship, a person may marry a girl who stands in
the relationship of a mother's sister, as well as a girl
that becomes a daughter in the same manner. This is
permitted in the countries to the south of the Narmada'.
Even when the Sapindya is hidden, marriage is permi-
tted in those countries between persons belonging to
generations within five and three in the case of the
father and mother respectively.

Sloka 10. It is a clear breach of Dharma or sacred


mandate to have marital alliance among the twice-born
within five generations from the father as well as from
the mother, or within five generations in the case of
the mother and seven in the case of the father ; and if
it is within three generations, the person concerned
commits the sin of gBrahmin-murder. One's maternal
uncle's daughter is to be treated on a par with a girl of
'One's own Gotra (family) in the matter of debt, buying.

women's assembly or feeding. Marital alliance with


one's own maternal uncle's- daughter or with the
daughters of one's own father's sister is forbidden.

Sloka 11. If one should marry one's own mater-


nal uncle's daughter '^r nne belonging to the Gotra or
Pravara of the mother, or one's own niecis (sister's
daughter) or the daughter of one's father's sister, and
sow his seed, he should abandon her and perform the
expiatory rite called Chandrayana. In the South people
marry the daughters of their maternal uncles. Where
are the young ladies that eat fish and are addlcated to
many paramours and those that are (chaste and good)
not drunkards ?

bath at the end of the monthly course, may be fed at a
Sraddha, but one who has married his maternal uncle's
-daughter as well as Brahmin who has married a Sudra
woman ought not to be worshipped and fed. So too,
there is a Vedic prohibition against feeding a woman
Tvho constantly wanders about. Those that are wor-
shipped must say that they are satisfied. How can we
have no belief in Truth, Fire and the Sun? This is
stated only as an example and not as an authority, nor
as the opinion of the public. This is not quite regu-
lar in the South. (This meaning is only tentative).

Sloka 13. The Sapindya relationship extends for 3
-generations only (in this part of the county) with regard
to a girl born of a woman belonging to the same caste
as her husband. But all those born of the same father,
but of mothers of different castes, become brothers
mutually, and all the wives of the father are mothers
to all the children. Similarly the brothers of those
women are material uncles. For a person given in
adoption within the family circle itself, there is ^nft"^
Sapindya, for seven generations, but this period' is
shortened in the case of a Kshatriya.

Sloka 14. One ought not to marry (1) the sister


of one's aunt (father's brother's wife); (2) the sister of
one's motlTer's co-wife, the daughters of (1) and (2); (3),
the sister of one's brother's wife, (4) one who stands in
the relationship of a mother, (5) one's teacher's
daughter and (6) one's son's daughter (i.e., the daughter
of one who stands in the relationship of a son). The
-difference of Pravara (V'edic preceptorship handed
-down from ancient times) should be considered only in
-the case of the father and not of the mother.

Sloka 15. Soon after marriage one ought not to
a t in the house of one's own daughter with the joy of
seeing the face of the friends and relatives. One should
not similarly displease a son-in-law, considering him to
be the Lord Narayana himself. A man should not
worship in one house two emblems of Lord Siva, two
Chalcras (discuses) of Lord Vishnu, two Sun-Gods, two
Saligramas and three Sakti-weapons of Lord Sub-
rahmanya, for they are not beneficial or conducive to
prosperity,
262

Sloka 16. In a place or house where there aretwc^


Saligrama emblems of the Lord only one should be
wor-shipped and not both. Though the Saligrama is
broken, it should be worshipped provided its Ring
(Chakra) is not spoiled, whereas the emblem of Lord
Siva under such circumstances shuld be rectified and
purified before worship. The latter,emblem must have
uniform height. Its top shonld not be covered. The
circumference of the stand should be thrice the height of
the Emblem, while the dimensions of the water-course
(drain in the stand) should be five times the height.

Sloka 17. One who performs his father's Sraddha
on an auspicious day ought to do it for his maternal
grandfather also. Otherwise, i.e., by leaving him off,
he would be committing the sin of patricide. The
annual ceremony that is ordained, must be done for the
wives of the respective fore-fathers also separately. In
the three kinds of Sraddhas, viz., Vridhi, Gaya and
Ashtaka, it is a person's religious duty to do the
ceremony as well as other religious functions relating
SI. 18 263

to Gods. If the rite is performed at home, the person's


wife should hand over the Pinda to him.
NoteSraddha means the devout offering of food or food-
material for the sake of the Manes. It is primarily of two kinds:
.(a) Parvana and (b) Ekoddishta. The funeral ceremony that is
done with reference to three persons, viz., Father, Grandfather
and Great Grandfather is called Parvana while the one don?
with reference to one above is called Ekoddishta. It is again of
three types; viz. (1) Nitya or Daily. (2) Naimitthika or casual
and (3) Kamya or optional. It is further divided into 5 varieties
as (1) Aharahah, (daily), (2) Parvana (3) Vriddhi-Sraddha (4)
Ekoddishta and (5) Sapindeckarana. The Vriddhi-Sraddha is
done when there is the birth of a son at home. The best time

Sloha 18. Seniority of twins is determined by the


order of the falling of the seed into the womb, but this
is determined thus , The child whose face the father
l)ehold6 first is called the senior or elder.
What is technically called Tri-Jyeshtha must be
avoided. It means the performance of the marriage in
the month of Jyeshta for the eldest son or daughter-
JDorn in the constellation of Jyeshta. (This remaric
264

applies to Upanayanam also). Similarly, two Jyeshthas


ai.;o, i.e.., marriage or any auspicious rite for the eldest
sen in the month of Jyeshtha are to be avoided.
When an auspicious ceremony is done in the
family, at least two months should elapse befor another
is done for a brother or sister, in the case of others,
the functions may be done after purification by a bath
when there is hO pollution.

g.'rl, (5) one born of a woman that is remarried, (6) one

his good qualities, (9) one who gives himself away to
another as a son owing to his being an'orphan, or
SI. 20] 265

being abandoned by his parents, (10) the son of a


woman that is pregnant at the time of marriage (11)
one born secretly of a person's wife by another who
cannot be determined exactly and (12) one who being
abandoned by the parent or parents, is brought up by
another. Of these 12 varieties, only 2 kinds, viz , (1)
and (6), i.e-, uterine son and one taken in adoption are
approved and the rest forbidden in Kali age.
NoteManu speaks of the following 12 varieties of sons in
IX-158-160. viz. Aurasa, Kshetraja, Datta, Kritrima, Gudhot-
panna, Apaviddha, Kaneena, Sahodha, Kreeta, Paunarbhava,
Swayamdatta and Saudra. Here see what Manu says about the

Sloka 20. One who wishes to have a son (by adop-
tion) should fast, offer a pair of ear-rings, clothes and
such other presents to the boy, and accept him with joy
as a gift from God, when he is given away by the
parents through a sacrifice. He should also feed the
34

sacrificial fire with cooked rice, while chanting the my-


stic syllables and the Vedic Hymn beginning with
" STRHIT '' as well as the one beginning with " q^Rsng^
according to the precepts of his Grihya Sutras and
then feed a number of Brahmins.

Sloka 21. A boy that is fit to be adopted must be


the son of a brother or so, who must be sweet and
sincere in thought, word and detd and not one who
creates troubles, nor one who is older or senior in rank.
A widow is not entitled to give or take one in adop-
tion. Though the boy is inferior in the matter of
Pravara (Vedic line-age), the sacrifice should be per-
formed according to the sacrificial custom of the person
who adopts him and with Manthras beginning with
^' ^Jfe-" The adoption may be made until the boy
has tonsure ceremony but when he is already invested
with the sacred thread, it is forbidden. So too, is for-
bidden the adoption of a slave or of the son of a Sudra.

Sloka 22' Those Brahmins who receive wealth
from Sudra women, promising to serve them like slaves.
SI. 24] 267

indeed become Sudras and get the effects prescribed for


that class. This is the opinion of Sage Parasara. The
Sage has said that a Sudra who causes a sacrifice to be
performed in the house of a Brahmin will reap its full
benefits. A person who is given away in adoption
himself should perform the Sraddha of his father (who
begot him), in case the person entitled to do it is
absent.

^ ^^^^ H ^ ll n
Sloka 23. Such types of sons as those taken in
adoption and those that are bought get indeed the
Gotra of the family to which they go, even if they come
from a different Gotra, but they do not get Sapindya
relationship. This is according to the statement of Sage
Vasishtha. If an adopted son originally belonged to a
different Vedic Sakha (branch), was invested with the
sacred thread according to the Sakha of the adopting
father, he gets certainly the Sakha, etc., of his adoptive
father. He has got the right for a share in his father's
property. This inheritance will not then depend upon
the Sapindya relationship. In the matter of pollution
also, he gets it just like his adoptive father and not
otherwise.

Sloha 24- A son given away in adoption loses his


right for his own father's wealth, Gotra and funeral
libations and he gets them pericilnjit- to his adoptive
father. After adoption by another, a person cannot
give funeral libations to his father that has begotten him.
In the matter of sacrifice and funeral offerings, this
is the rule; i.e-, he follows the system of his new
relative. When a person finding his family coming to
an end gives his daughter in marrage with the idea of
adopting her son as his own, the grandson born of that
wedlock is equivalent to his uterine son, and the relation-
ship becomes permanent, provided there is no desire for
double parentage, i.e., connection with both the families-

Sloha 25. One who wishes to get married may
marry the younger sister of one's sister's husband or of
one's elder brother's wife. A person who is not keeping
the marital fire (i.e., a widower) or whose wife is
living far away, should get his father's Anniversary
-Sraddha performed by his brothers who are keeping
that fire (and whose wives are living with them). It
should not be done by others such as the Co-parceners.
The anniversary ceremony should not be done with the
daily sacrificial fire, for after kindling it and feeding it
with oblations, it must be rejected.

Sloka 26. To do the Homa or Sacrifice connected


-with Sraddha on the hands of the Brahmins that are fed
5s not proper. This is only the inconsiderate act of those
that follow the Rig Vedic School, according to Sage
Bhrigu. One's wife's brother and the husband of one's
sister (provided their wives are alive) the sister, brother,
daughter and son these six persons ought not to
perform the Sraddha of the person concerned, for it
-will not be a real Sraddha.

Sloka 27. It is well nigh impossible in this world to


bave a religious mendicant, a yogin and a philosopher
-for Sraddha feeding. So one must try sincerely to
satisfy such persons completely. The food offered by
a Sudra at a Sraddha ought not to be eaten by a Brah-
min. Similarly, the consecrated food at a Sraddha
should not be given to a Sudra by a Brahmin without
discriminationagainst the principles of distribution.

Sloka 28. The religious merit that accrues to one


from giving away a house in charity, will be realised
only when it is given to a Brahmin along with some
lands. Even Adisesha, the Serpent King, cannot des-
cribe or count the good effects or merits of the gift
made to a Brahmin with wife and children. A Brahmin
who does things prescribed for people of other classes
falls down from his position and will not get happiness
in the world to come. Similarly, a Sudra who does
Brahminic deeds will not get higher status or merits.
But according to Sage Parasara, this is otherwise.

as well as during Rahu Kala or in a Lagna that is in
opposition to Rahu, and during Parvan (such as Full
Moon, New Moon, Sankranti, ejc.) that is vitiated
.{pierced). Even a vitiated lunar-day is to be adopted
according to scholars of all schools for sea-bath after
an oil bath (anointing oneself with oil), after sexual
union, after a death, hair-cutting (shave) and after
pollution.

Sloka 30. For the purposed of gifts, sacred ablu-
tions, etc., the lunar day should be taken as the one
that is prevailing at the time of Sun-rise. It is laid
down that a religious mendicant should have his food
in the last |th portion of the day, and that he should
not eat at night. The same rule applies to a widow
too, i- e., she ought not to eat at night. On the Parva
days, she is forbidden to take even water, but she may
eat fruits, but not cooked food at night.
272

Sloka 31- There are two kinds of sons taken in


adoption, viz., permanent and nonpermanent. The
daughter's son will have double parentage and should
offer funeral libations o.nd food in all religious func-
tions to both the families. 1 his is in accordance with
the views of Sage Vasista. But Katyayana opines that
it is not proper on the part of the person to do the
Sraddha for both. Sage Vyasa howewer, is of opinion
that the person (grandson) should perform the Sraddha
of his maternal grand-father also without any diffe-
rence.

^ ^ ^ ^ 5 T R M ^ ^rcfqsri i

Sloka 32. Similarly do Sages Harita and Hemadr^


state that a person should perform the Sraddha for his
own father as well as for his adoptive father, viz., his
maternal grand-father. Such a person should join the
Pindas offered to the two kinds of fathers. He will also
bave a share in the properties of both the fathers. In
the matter of the Sraddha, he must adopt the Gotra of
SI. 33J] 273

his adoptive father, while on the occasion of his


marriage, he should adopt the Gotras of both the
families. Marital alliance with the mother's family is
not proper for him, for his own mother and his mater-
nal grand-mother are on a par with each other or
become equals.

Sloka 35. Even though the Nandi function {intro


ductory propitiatory rite done at the commencement of
every auspicious function to please the Manes) is per-
formed, the Upanayana (investing the boy with the
Sacred Thread and initiating him into the Sacred lore)
ought not to be proceeded with, in case there is a fall of
meteors, showers of iire,as well as when the mother
of the boy stays out owing to the appearance of
menses. If these things occur after the initial ceremonial
meal of the Brahmacharin, the Upanayana need not be
given up. The same procedure is to be followed in.
the case of one's daughter's marriage, i^e., the father
alone, without the mothershould not at all give the
daughter in marriage. If the mother is dead, the father
may do the Upanayana, provided he, the father has no
other flaw such as pollution.

274

Sloka 34. After the preformance of the Nandi at


an auspicious Muhurta, the Brahmachari should eat only
in the company of his mother and not alone. Similarly
the bride-groom should eat always in the company of
the bride after the marriage. The bridegroom should
get his hair cut and arranged in the manner that is
prevalent in his family. The sacred fire that is kindled
in Upanayana is inferior to the Grihya fire. If the
ordinary fire is mixed with Sacred fire, the learned
should then worship it with the Mantra beginning with
the word " Pahi" (protect); but it should not be
worshipped by those that have no relations at all.

Sloka 35. If the ordinary fire is followed by the


Smarta house-hold fire (Grihya), one should sprinkle
its ashes with the hymn beginning with ^ (Sanno
Devi) and then offer oblations to the Fire with the
Mantra of " Pahi " etc. If the Grihya (house-hold) fire
and ordinary fire are mixed together before the
commencement of the worship of the marital Fire and
the ^Ml^qi^ Sacrifice (Homa). the oblations are to be
offered to it considering the importance given to the
-fires.

Sloka 36. If the mingling together of the fires is


done after the commencement of the Huma referred to
above, the fire should be separated into two parts, and
with one, the '^rat'TTE should be completed offering the
final oblations, but the ghee should not be poured with
the spoon (Sruva) according to the wise. If,the sacrificial
twigs tied to the spoon are destroyed, it should be kept
down and the fire should not be fed with oblations
with that spoon. If the spoon is forgotten, oblatiuns

Sloka 37. When a person loses his wife, he may


remarry only in odd years counted from the year of her
death. This is very beneficial, whereas remarriage in
even years is harmful. If a girl should attain puberty
before marriage, her father and brothers, all will
become great sinners. The husband, to be rid of sin,
should not have union with the wife before she comes
of age. '

Sloka 38. The first lunar day (Tithi) of the year,


i. e. Chaitra Sukla Pratipat should not be vitiated by
the previous Tithi, viz., Amavasya. If it is, it should
be rejected. The birth of the Lord of Raghus, viz., Sri
Hama, took place at midday on the 9th lunar day,
which is a veritable bestower of liberation. That
Navami9th lunar daywhich is afflicted or vitiated
by the last part of Ashtamithe Sth lunar dayshould
be avoided by those who observe the vow with fast and
worship of Sri Rama ; but, if it coincides with the
-constellation of Punarvasu, the day is very good for
the worship of Lord Sri Rama.

Sloka 39- The auspicious day called " Tretadi"
e., the commencement of the Treta Yuga, on which
falls the celebration of the birth of Parasurama should
be taken as the third lunar day in the month of Vaisakha
.(April-May)Akshaya Tritiya. This day must have
the Tritiya (third) Tithi at mid-day and should not be
vitiated by the second lunar day. For the purpose of
Sraddha, etc, the same Tithi should necessarily extend
to the afternoon also. The best of observances, eta;.,
SI. 41] 277

the celebration of festivities in commemoration of the


Narasimhavatara should be done on a Tithi that ex-
tends up to the evening, but if it coincides with the
constellation Swati, it is not beneficial.

Sloka 40. It is laid down in the Grihya Sutras that
the Upakarma (renewal of the Sacred Thread and
Vedic studies) for a new Brahmacharin should be per-
formed in the month of Sravana (August); but it should
not be performed by Brahmins, if there is Sankranti
.(solar transition from one sign to another) or an eclipse
of Jupiter or Venus. Followers of the Yajurveda per-
form this only on the Fullmoon day, a while those
of the Rigveda observe this vow on a day that has the
constellation Sravana, but those of the Sama Veda do
it even on a day that has the star Hasta. Now, I shall
deal with the Sacred Ashtami (Sth lunar day) on which
the birth of Lord Sri Krishna is celebrated.

m 5T %citq ^ 3 I! ^ II
Sloka 41. The 8th lunar day in the dark half of
the month of Sravana is the day of the birth of Lord
jSri Krishna. If it coincides with the star Rohini and
the week-day of Wednesday, it is considered to be most
278

auspicious and fruitful. The day should satisfy condi.


tion, viz., the Tithi should extend to the midnight and
that it should not be vitiated by the previous Tithi
(Saptami)

Sloka 42. If the above Tithi-Ashtamiextends


beyond three Yamas (one Yama = 3 hours) at night,,
the fast should be broken at the end of either Tithi or
the Star, for, it is equal to the holy Sivaratri. The
4th lunar day in the bright half of the month Bhadra-
pada, is the best day for the worship of the Lord
Ganesa. If the Tithi touches Panchami and coincides
with the star Chitra, it is praiseworthy but not so, if it
touches the third Tithi.

Sloka 43. The Rishi-Panchami will be very effect-


ive, if it is connected with Chaturthi, but not so with
Shashti Tithi (6th day). If the 14th Tithi touches the
noon (the Bright half of Bhadrapada), Lord Ananta
should be worshipped that day. Being connected with
Pournima, this day will lead to full benefits. The 14th
Day in the Dark Fort-night of Aswina month called
Naraka Chaturdasi produces great religious merits in
those that take an oil bath just at the time of Moon-rise.

A similar holy bath on the Ratha Saptami day coinci-
ding with the constellation Anuradha is especially
sacred to the Sun-God. It is also auspicious and meri-
torius as those talcen on the occasions of a crore of
Solar eclipses or as the rising of the twelve Suns at the
same time. The holy Sivaratri touching midmight

the Lord.

Sloka 45. In the month of Magha, the I4th Lunar
Day (in the Dark Fortnight) is called Siva Tithi, one
that is sacred to Lord Siva. It is otherwise known as
Maha Sivaratri. Every month too, this 14th Day is
sacred to the Lord. Hence the people shoud worship
with devotion the Lord along with the Divine Mother at
dusk. This will lead to glorious results. Similarly every
day, there is a period of three Muhurtas, or two hours
and 24 minutes, soon-after the Sun touches the Peak of
-the setting Mountain (just as the Sun sets, which is
280

called Pradosha and is sacred to the Lord Siva. So, he


should be worshipped daily at that time. On the
Sivaratri-day, a period of two Ghatis (48 minutes) at
midnight is called MahanisaGreat night ( every
night, a period of two Ghatis at midnight is called
Maha-Nisa).

Sloka 46. If Elcadasi does not fall on two days,
the Dwadasi should be observed the very next day. But
if it falls on two days, ascetics and widows should
observe it on the 2nd day. Even though a dual Tithi
does not exist on the 2nd day, still it is called one such,
i.e., Ekadasi-cum Dwadasi. Hence only the first day,
viz-, Ekadasi will predominate. If there is an
uncontaminated Dwadasi, that alone is considered best.

^j^m ^Isf^^ ci^m^Tt mxm\ I

Sloka 47. If the Ekadasi is uncontaminated by


Dwadasi, it should be rejected like poison, and only the
next day (Dwadasi) should be adopted for fasting, .though
strictly, it is no Ekadasi. If it is advisable to break the
SI. 49] 281

fast the day aftfer that (Dwadasi), This is the view held
by the Vaishnavas. According to them, Ekadasi must
be free from contamination by Dwadasi and ;the brealc
fast of Dwadasi should be done by the wise even after
Dwadasi is over. .

, Sloka 48. If there be a Solar Eclipse on any day,
the Annual Sraddha ceremony ought not to be per-
formed on that day. If, on the other hand, the M O O A
becomes invisible owing to her eclipse, the Sraddha
may be performed on the same day, because after all
the eclipse and other rituals pertaining to it take place
at night, while in the case of Sraddha it is quite
different, as it is done at day-time. Where the
authorities are too many and equivocal, i.e., are not
decisive, one should follow the conventicn and that too
of the majority.

Sloka 49. Regarding the marital rituals and sacri-


ficial rites, pollution will not affect the concerned Brah-
mins until the functions are".completed, after the Nandi-
Sraddha and the initiation ceremony respectively are
performed. In the Sraddha ceremony, there is no
36
282

pollution after the cooking is completed or is taken up.


Similarly in a sacrifice, when a Brahmin is sprinkled
with the sanctified water for initiation, he will not be
affected by pollution. The actual sacrifice no doubt
commences only afterwards with the chanting of Sacred
Texts.

Sloka 50. According to the Scriptures, the lunar


month wherein there is no solar transition from one
sign to another (Sankranti) is termed Mala Masa or
* Soiled month'. It is otherwise known as Adhika
Masa or ' extra month '. Hence sacrificial and those
rites that are connected with the Manes (Sraddhas) are
forbidden in that month. Only the daily and mandatory
religious duties should be performed by wisemen during
the season. Here 60 days consitute one month. In
this period, only the monthly Sraddha may be perfor-
med but not annual Sraddhas and sacrifices and such
other rites pertaining to the Gods.

to be offered to the Gods, while two salutations to
each of the sages and three to each of the Manes. Only-
one salutation need be offered to a woman acording to
the rule. To the mother and to all other women of
her rank three salutations are to be offered. Thatisthe
;general rule to be observed in Sraddha. For ^ ^ ^ ^
Vaiswadeva Homa, separate cooking should be done.

Sloha 53' The funeral libation of water should


not be offered on the bare ground or into an iron or
Ijronze vessel. The combination of the thumb and the
fore-finger is the symbol of beckoning the Manes. With
the remaining fingers, one should with devotion offer
the rice or food on the ground. The same rule holds
good in the case of the offering called Chitra which is
made while one begins to eat. This should on no
account be eaten by himself or by any body else. ,

virhich just precedes the two parts that are given up,
i. e., the 28th part, provided there is no Amavasya that
night. If the day happens to be Amavasya and if the

offered. If the ^H^tj^JsRiiT, i.e., joining the ftog of one
with those of the ancients, has been already effected,
then the Amavasya-offering and the one in the f q ^ ^

In holy waters or shrines, the following seven
things should be avoided by the wise : (1) Arghya or
offering holy water ; (2) the rule regarding the fingers
in eating food; (3) the difference in Vedic Salchas; (4)
the query regarding the satisfaction of the Manes j (5)
the scattering of food particles for the unknown and
uncared-for dead ; (6) Avahana or invoking the depar-

wives of one's father as for the father himself. So too
he should do it for his own wives, elder brother (brothers
of a higher class), paternal uncles, and meternal grand-
father (i. e., the father of all the wives of one's father).
Oblations should be given to the e^qiH^TI^ or the mari-
tal fire and those of the Sraddha, to the ordinary or

entitled to perform the Sraddha of a wife belonging to


another caste and so the husband ought not to do it.

If one of them alone is married, that wife stands in the
position of a wife in respect of all of them for the
purpose of barring of course, for her own sons,
brothers and father. If a lady whose husband is alive
but who has no sons, dies, or if a widow dies, according
to some, the function of uniting her with the Manes is
to be done soon after the gfqo^fei^ai ceremony; but

Sloka'62. One who does not unite with his wife
who has bathed after menses and who is full of sexual -
appetite, in spite of her close proximity, commits the
sin of destroying a child in the womb. On the other
hand, if a woman, after menses, does not unite with
her loving husband, she will repeatedly be born among
hogs, dogs, wolves and jackals. Hence the couple
must enjoy sexual pleasure, which results in the birth
of a good son and which ultimately takes them across
the ocean of mundane life.

Sloka 63, There are four causes for the appea-


rance of menses in women, viz., (1) excessive passion (2)
disease (3) age and (4) food or any medicine taken.
Of all these, the defect based upon age is most promi-
nent. The menses last till the age of 50 years. They
commence generally at the age of 18 years and conti-.
nuefor 3 days every month. If in the same mbtiibh,
the menses reappear before the lapse of 18 days, ithey
do not produce any effect or pollution. .>

On the first day of the menses, she is lika a Pariah
woman ; on the second, a hater of Brahmins, on the
third, like a washer-worn an and on the 4th day, she is

sexual intcrcoiu-se on such days. If he has, he should
at once have a dip in water, with his clothes on, and
should use sesamum seeds for cleaning his body. He

forming the Matru Sraddha, i. e., funeral rites of his

of the said two houses,
Saturn. Venus and Mars prove auspicious for people born
under Kumbha, Tula and Mesha Lagna respectively, though
these planets are owners of Dusstthanas (8th and 12th).
We shall discuss here the position of Mars in the 10th for
Mesha Lagna and that of Venus in the 7th for Tula Lagna. In
both the cases, the lords of the respective Lagnas arc posited in
Kendra positions and give their full aspect to the Ascendant.
Mars in Makara for Mesha Lagna is a draw-back so for as the
longevity of the person is concerned. Though Mars in this posi-
tion occupies one of the best Kendras and is therefore with full
Digbala, his lordship over the Sth will also have to be considered.
Mars in Makara will naturally mean his full aspect over the
Lagna and in case where Mars and Saturn are devoid of benefic
aspect, this aspect will mean a very strong Alpayuryoga^vide
III 8, Rule 1, supra.
For people born under Tula, Venus in Mesha is likewise
injurious for longevity. When Venus and Mars are devoid of
benefic aspect, two cases of very strong Alpayuryogas arise: viz.,
(1) by virtue of Venus's position in the 7th singly, (this applies
only when Venus is alone) and (2) Venus' s aspect over the Lagna
as the owner of the Sthvide III8, Rule 1, supra.

For the two luminaries owning the Sth and not proving
Marakas, Cf. IV25, supra.

Sloka 81' The two nodesRahu and Ketuif
endowed with strength, produce effects similar to the
planet owning an inauspicious house and in whose
house they are posited or with whom they are conjoi-
ned. The lords of the Kendra and Kona houses, if
not conjoined with the two nodes, produce beneficial
results. The effects will be contrary, if they be other-
wise. These two nodes in spite of their malefic
nature become benefics by virtue of their position in
-certain houses or association with certain planets.

Sloka 82. If one of the two nodes and the lord of


a Trilcona be posited in the 9th or lOth, or if one of
them be in the 9th and the other in the 10th or vice'-
versa, the Yoga, will cause prosperity to the native.
Even a conjunction of either of these with the lord of
a Kona will prove beneficial. In the above circum-
stances, the Dasas of these two nodes as well as those
of the planets conjoined with them will prove happy.
51. 84] 301

If there to be a planet who is inauspicious associated


by a sort of :^rf^^ (Sambandha) with either of the
nodes, then the Bhulcti of the Yoga-producing planet
will prove adverse.

Sloka 83. The two planetsRahu and Ketu


become auspicious when they occupy a Trikona or
Xendra position {vide Chart 44), or when they are
associated with the lord of that particular Kendra or
Kona house in which they are posited. They prove
also beneficial when they conjoin with the lords of any
Kendra or Kona house. If the lord of the 9th were to
own the Sth or the 12th as well, or if the lord of the
Pth and 10th in the above circumstance were to con-
join with the lords of the Sth or the I2th, then the
auspiciousness of the Yoga is lost. The Sth house is
termed the house of longevity.

m%'^^mm^'({v* m ii ii
Sloka 84. The Sth house counted from the Sth
also rfcpresents longevity, the 12th place reckoned from
each of these, that is the 2nd and the 7th from the
Lagna, are known as ^R;^ (Maraka) houses. The planet
302

posited in the 2nd house from its lord is a qjq (Papa


in.auspicious). And during the Dasa of such an inaus-
picious planet or in the Dasa of the planet owning the
12th house itself will the native endure discomfiture.
A part of the Sloka was missing and is reconstucted ;here.

Sloka 85. Of all the planets Saturn alone has the


power of killing the native, even in the Bhukti of a
benefic or in his own Bhukti in the Dasas of malefics,.
provided he is connected with the lord of the Sth or the
12th Bhava or is conjoined with a Maraka death
inflicting planet. All planets yield in their own Bhukits
effects which are natural to them or to those planets
with which they are conjoined.

Sloka 86. The effects of the Bhuktis of other


planets that are inimical to the lord of the Dasa, will
have to be guessed according to the nature of those
planets (Bhukti-lords). Even in the Dasa of the lord of
a Kona, the Bhukti of the lord of a Kendra will not be
auspicious ; but it will be auspicious when the above
lord of Kendra is connected with benefics. But in the
SI. 88] 303

Bhuki of a Maraka planet the effects will have to be


judged from the planet or planets with whom he is
conjoined.

TO^qi^"^ ^^^^"^ IKV9 II


Sloka 87. The Bhukti of an inauspicious planet
-may prove auspicious by virtue of his ^^sq-(Sambandha)
with the planets aforesaid. Owing to their equal
goodness both the Yogakarakas and the planets-con-
joined with them give good results in their Dasas and
Bhuktis. A Yogakaraka planet will be capable of doing
good in his Dasa during the Bhukti of another planet,
-even if the latter be not connected with him. The two
nodes prove auspicious in their Bhuktis during the Dasas
of benefics when they are associated with benefics.
The last line is reconstructed.

H'lRt ^RE^ ^f^: I

Sloka 88. If the said two nodes be conjoined with


ja. benefic and placed betwixt two malefics, then the
Bhuktis of the malefics that are not conjoined with
either of the nodes will give auspicious effects. If the
benefic associated with the node be a Yogakaraka one,
his Bhukti will give mixed effect. If not conjoined, the
effect will be very adverse. If Rahu or Ketu be a
Maraka, then he will bring about demise in the Bukti
of the benefic planet in question or in that of his own
.(in the Dasa and Bhukti of these two mutually).

Sloka 89. During Saturn's Dasa, Saturn gives the
effect of Mars in his own Bhukti and that of his own in
Mars' Bhukti. The same is the case in Kuja's Dasa as
well. If the lords of the Lagna and the Chandra Lagna
were to exchange places, they would bestow Rajayoga
on the native. Rajayoga will also arise when the lords
of the 9th and 10th interchange places or are conjoined.
For the benefit of students, I shall now describe, after
full investigation, the effects of the several Lagnas and
the planets' relationship with them-
To illustrate the truth contained in this Sloka about exchange
of the lords of the 9th and 10th houses, see Chart 39, p. 69 supra.
Regarding the effect of the interchange of places between
the lords of the Ascendant and the Chandra Lagna), the follow
ing chart serves a-s an example :

The Parivartana between Jupiter and the Moon though


causing a Khala Yoga (Paladeepilca VI32) is now productive
of immense good as the exchange of places is between the lords
of the Lagna and the Chandra Lagna. This results in a Raja
Yoga- (Vide Sloka above)
The three Mahapurusha Yogas Hamsa Malavya and
Ruchaka are present in the nativity by virtue of the position o f
Jupiter, Venus and Mars respectively. Venus, is in his Vargo"
ttamamsa, being posited in the 4th Kendra and is therefore
with full Digbala. There is nothing to say against the power
weilded by the native as the 10th house is aspected by Mars
the Yoga Karaka and lord of the 10thand Venus, while tlie
lord of the 10th is aspected by Jupiter, the lord of the 9th. The.
mutual aspect between these two exalted\planets results in a very
strong Rajayoga as they own the 9th and lOthrhouses. ,^ ,
The aspect of Mars in the capacity pf a Yogakaraka over
the 1st and 2nd is very auspicious Jupiter due to his presence-
in the Lagna does a great deal in preserving the native from
dangers which otherwise would have proved fatal. Moreover'
it is Jupiter who enhances the value of this horoscope as he is-
the lord of the 9th.
It should not be forgotten to note that the lOth house is as-
pected by Saturn and Mercury, lords of two of the Dusstthanas.
Saturn is equally powerful being posited in his^Moolatrikona
Rasi and therefore is capable of undoing what Mars did, Some
misuse of money may also be anticipated as the Dhanabhava is
aspected by Saturn, the lord of the 8th, and Mars. These two
are malefics, and the house is devoid of any benefic aspect; so
also is its lord. For people born under Cancer, this is the best
position for Saturn, as otherwise, he has got an inherent ten-
dency to spoil the Bhava he occupies (for, Saturn, here is the
lord of the Sth, a Dusstthana).

Ample happiness to the father of the native is indicated by


the aspect of the Sun over the 9th (house of father) and that of
the lord of the 9th over the 9th.
39
306

Marital happiness may not be very good as the 7th house is


occupied by a malefic and the 2nd is aspected by two malefics.
The native is a retired officer in one of the Indian Railways.

Sloka 90. For people born in the Mesha Lagria,


Mercury proves tnauspious. Both Jupiter and the Sun
prove auspicious when they are conjoined. The conjunc-
tion of Jupiter and Saturn is good. Jupiter's conjunction
with the other planets is inauspicious. Venus prove*! a
Maraka (Hffj^), Saturn and the rest do not prove so,
even if they be inauspicious.
Jupiter, Venus and the Moon prove inauspicious,
while the Sun and Saturn are auspicious for those born
in the Vrishabha Lagna.
Re: Mesha Lagna: Jupiter and Saturn ar: the lords of the
-9th and 10th and hence their conjunction results in a Rajayoga.
Venus owns the two Maraka places and therefore a Maraka.
Mercury is a Papin as he owns the 3rd and the 6th.

SL 92] 307

For peaple born in the Mithuna Lagna, Mars,


Jupiter and the Sun are Asubhas- The effect of their
conjunction is similar to what has been said before. The
Moon by herself will not bring about death, while the
rest can do so.
Venus and Mercury are inauspicious, while Mars
and Jupiter are Subhas for people born in the Karka-
taka Lagna.
This is an important Sloka.
Re : Vrishabha Lagna: Saturn, being the Yogakaraka, has
got the power to do good to the native independently. In the
case of Jupiter and others, they will have to get the agency of
another planet to cause Maraka. In other words, one of these
planets in its Dasa will cause death in the Bhukti of another
planet and not in its own. Venus, though owning the Lagna is
a Papininauspicious) because, he owns the 6th house also. Cf.
Chart 81, p. 186.
Re: Mithuna Lagna : The effect of the conjunctions of
Mars, Jupiter and the Sun is very tersely expressed. Jupiter
and Mars when conjoined bring about Rajayoga to the native as
they happen to own the 10th and 9th houses reckoned from the
lOth. The conjunction of the Sun and Mars is inauspicious and
is a weak point for the native as this conjunction will make the
lord of the 3rd weak. It should be noted that the three planets
are the owners of all the Upachaya houses.
The Moon as owner of the 2nd happens to be a Maraka:
but as the luminaries do not exercise that power (Vide IV26)
the work is got done by some other planet connected with her.

Sloka 92. Mars by himself causes Yoga. The


Sun does not kill. The rest (if they have that function)
do it These are the effects of planets for those born in
Karkataka Lagna,
Mercury and Venus are auspicious. So also are
Mars and Jupiter. The combination of Jupiter and
Venus is not at all auspicious. Mercury and others
cause death. These are the effects for those born in
Simha Lagna.
Mars, Jupiter and the Moon are Asubhas; Venus
is the only Subha.
Re: Karkataka Lagna: Mars causes Yoga as he is the Yoga-
karaka. The Sun does not kill though he is the lord of the 2nd
Cf. IV25, supra). Mercury is inauspicious as he owns the 3rd
and 12th.
Re: Simha Lagna : Mercury owns the 2nd and the llth
and is therefore auspicious. (IV5). Mars is the Yogakaraka.

Sloka 93. Venus and the Moon are Yoga-producing


planets and more so will be their combination. Venus
is a Maraka and not the others. These are the effects
for people born in Kanya Lagna.
Jupiter, the Sun and Mars are Asubhas. Saturn and
Mercury are Subhas. The Moon in conjunction with
her son. Mercury, produces Rajayoga, Kuja proves a
Maraka. Jupiter and the Sun do not cause death.
These are for people who have their births in Tula
Xagna.
SI. 95] 309

The conjunction of the Moon and Venus is very auspicious


for people born in the Kanya Lagna as they happen to be the
lords of the llth, the 2nd and 9th. (Cf. IV5 suprp).
The two inferior planetsVenus and Mercuryare best
friends and therefore Mercury is a Subha for ,Tula Lagna in
5pite of his ownership of the \2th.
The combination of the Moon and Mercury is auspicious, be
case they are the owners of the 10th and 9th houses from Tula,

Sloka 94. Mercury, Mars and Venus, these three,


are productive of bad results. The Moon is the only
Subha, a beneficial planet. The Sun and the Moon
produce very good effects and equally so is their
combination. Jupiter by himself will not be a Maraka,
while Mercury and others, if they function as Marakas,
will bring about the demise of the native. These are
the effects for a person born in Vrischika Lagna.
Venus is the only planet that is malevolent, while
the Sun and Mars are highly auspicious.
Re : Vrischika Lagna : Though Mars owns the Lagna, he
is inauspicious as he owns the 6th. Cf. Chart 79, p. 179.

Sloka 95. The combination of the Sun and


Mercury will cause good Yoga. Mercury proves a
310

Maraka, Venus and the rest are not so These are the
effects for a birth when Dhanus is the Lagna.
Mars, Jupiter and the Moon are Asubhas, while
Venus and Mercury are auspicious. Saturn by himself
does not kill. Mars and the rest may do so. Venus is
the Yogakaraka. These are ihe ;effects for people
born in Makara Lagna.
Rc : Dhanus : Venus is an Asubha as he owns the 6th. The
Sun and Mercury are the lords of the 9th and 10th and produce
Rajayoga when they conjoin together- Mercury owns two-
Kendra houses and is also a Maraka as he is the lord of the 7th,
Re : Makara : Jupiter is an Asubha as he owns the 12th,
and also because, Makara is his Neecha Rasi. Saturn though
owning the 2nd is not a Maraka as he is the lord of the Lagna.

Sloka 96. Jupiter, the Moon and Mars are Asubhas,


Venus is auspicious. The combination of Mercury and
Mars is productive of good Yoga- Jupiter does not kill.
MarSj the Sun and the rest prove Marakas. These are
the effects for people born in Kumbha Lagna.
Saturn and Venus, otherwise known as Kavi, are
Subhas. Mars and the Moon are inauspicious. The
conjunction of Jupitet- and Mars causes Rajayoga.
Mercury kills, while Mars does not. Saturn and the
rest, if they prove Marakas, cause death.
Re : Kumbha : It may here be noted that Jupiter, though
he owns the 2nd and llth is considered as inauspicious for this
SI. 98] 311

X.agna unlike Mercury who is classified as a Subha when playing


a similar role in the case of Simha Lagna (Sloka 22 above).
Probably, this may be due to the fact that the relationship
between the Sun and Mercury is closer astronomically and
more intimate than that between Saturn and Jupiter.
Re : Meena : Saturn, though owning the 12th, is considered
as a Subha. Venus is a Subha in spite of the fact that he owns
the 8th. This is so, because Meena is his exaltation house.
Further Meena is house of renunciation; as snch Lords of
Bth house (house of Death) and 12 house (house of Loss) are best
friends, as they Qualify a Sanyasi in the right sense.
Mercury is the lord of two Kendras and of a Maraka house.
jFor the Lagnas owned by Jupiter, Mercury invariably proves a
Maraka.

%^^t ^ ^ m ^ q^ ^tmn^ i

Sloka 97. The above are the effects of a birth in


Meena Lagna. The good or the bad effects of any
planet are to be guessed through a study of the nature
-of the planet and the planets that are conjoined with
the planet in question and also of the position occupied
by the planet. Planets when they prove auspicious
bestow on tne native issue, wife, happiness to father,
gain and other auspicious incidents in their Dasas, (i.e.,
in the Dasas of planets pertaining to those Bhavas) and
in their Bhuktis or in the Bhuktis of other planets.

Sloka Intelligent and good people, even after


98-
having studied and understood this science well, say
" Who has understood the science ? No one. If there be
any, he is the only man, and he keeps it for himself.-
It has been made known that even asses, dogs and the
like are born under similar Yogas, and they also are
subject to the effect of these Yogas, in the respective
Dasas of planets causing these Yogas. Further, these
Yogas are also Influenced by other forces."

highest exaltation coupled with their duty as Marakas,
one n6ed not describe the amount of evil caused by
them Saturn brings about a good amount of wealth
and prosperity when he is posited in the Lagna identi-
cal with Meena, Tula or Dhanus. If, under the above
condition, the 7th Kendra be not occupied or aspected
by Jupiter or Mercury, the native will become a king.
Still death should be predicted in the Dasa and Bhukti
of the lord of the 7th house.

Saturn is posited in Vrischika, the Sth place from Mercury,
the lord of the 9th. Further, he is in Dhanur Navamsa. an odd
one. In consequlnce of this position, the native throughout his
career has had enough of breaks regarding his prosperity. The
same thing will continue throughout his life.

Sloka 101' If the Moon be conjoined with Venus,


and the lord of the house occupied by the two planets
Ise in a Kendra or a Kona, the native will, throughout
his career, command good vehicles and be endowed
with prosperity. If the lord of the Sth house reckoned
from the third be posited in the 3rd, 6th, 7th, the llth
or the 1st, loss of his brothers should be expected. If
the Sth house be occupied by a planet in debilitation,
