articles in time to come.
In this stanza, 2 different rules have been
mentioned one in the first line and second
in the second line.
In the first line it is narrated that all the
planets whether benefics or malefics by
nature give beneficial result if any of them
is the ruler of TRIKON Houses i.e. lord of
5th or 9th or 1st. The Ascendant is counted
both as KENDRA AND TRIKON house.

216
Here the second sign of that planet may be anywhere that is not to be considered for this
rule.
In the second line it is narrated that if any of the natural benefics or malefic s are the lords of
the 3rd (TRI), 6TH (SHAD), 11th (AAYA) houses, they give malefic results. This is separate
& a different rules than the first line above. In any horoscope following is the position of
lords of 3.6.11, houses.
3rd Lord Can Be Lord of 4th, 10th, 6th, 8th, or 12th house also
6th Lord Can Be Lord of 3rd, 7th, 11th, 1st, 5th or 9th house, also
11th Lord Can Be Lord of 4th, 10th, 6th, 8th or 12th house also
From the above table we can see that 3rd & 11th house lords can never become lords of 1st 5th 9th
houses and thus can never become benefic as per the rule 1st given above. Because only those
planets can become benefics which are the lords of 1st, 5th or 9 th houses. Thus for the lords of
3rd & 11th houses we can say that “they can never give benefic results” .If they are lords of
TRIK (6, 8 & 12) houses then they will definitely give malefic results but if they are the
lords of 4th or 10th house then as these houses are not malefic houses they will not give
malefic results but not great benefic results also. It will also depend much on whether the
lord of 3rd or 11th house is natural benefic or malefic planet.
Now, the lord of sixth house as per above table can be the lord of 3,7,11, houses which are not
benefic houses or Lagna (1st) or TRIKON (5th or 9th). If the lord of any of 1st,5th or 9th house
then as per the 1st line of the stanza ‐6 it will give beneficial results irrespective of it being
lords of sixth house, which is a TRIK house. Therefore, we see that the second rule is an
exception when it comes to being the lord of the sixth house.
In all Indian Astrological texts Ascendant (lagna) house been said to be always benefic.
Here also, in stanza‐9 second line it has been said that if the lord of RANDRA (8th house) is
also the lord of Ascendant (lagna) then also it has benefic qualities to it.

Stanza 7:‐

ु   नृणां सौाः के ािधपा यिद। 
न िदशि शभं

ु  ते  े बलाचोरोरम॥७॥
ू राचेदशभं
This stanza states that if any natural benefic planet is the lord of any kendra (4, 7, 10) house,
then by simply becoming the lord of Kendra (benefic houses) it cannot give benefic results.
In the same manner Kroor (natural malefic) planet does not give benefic result (or malefic
result). All the benefic or malefic properties acquired by the planets as said (above) get
stronger in the sequential order of the houses i.e. 4,7,10 houses means 7th is stronger than 4,
10th is stronger than 7th house.
Here a very important thing more has been said in the first line of the stanza 10, that the
demerit acquired on becoming lord of Kendras & hindrance in giving benefic results is most
to Jupiter and less than that is to Venus.
The above rule does not mean that benefics on being lords of kendras give malefic results
and the malefics give benefic results. The rule only says that simply on becoming lord of
217
Kendra any benefic planet cannot be taken for granted to give benefic results similarly the
malefic planet also.
Lord of the 4th or 10th house can also become lord of 3, 7,11,1, 5 or 9 th house only.
Lord of 7th house can also become lord of 4, 10, 6, 8,12th house only.
Lagna lord is always beneficial.
From the above it can be inferred that if any benefic planet is the Lord of 4th
or 10th house & also he is lord of 3rd 7th or 11th house then he will give
malefic results and if he is lord of 1st ,5th 9 th house also then as
per stanza 6 rule first, it will give benefic results.
Similar is the case of malefic (KROOR) planet.
In another case if any natural benefic or malefic planet is lord
th
of 7 house which is MARAK i.e. house of death then
definitely it will be malefic. Regarding the intensity of this
KENDRADHIPATI DOSHA it is clear that the most naturally
benefic planets are Jupiter & second Venus, if they are restricted to
give their benefic results then who is left in the Horoscope to give benefic results. Thus, this
demerit is most harmful in case of Jupiter and Venus.
Thus, the rules given in the stanza ‐8 & part of 10 are clear now. KENDRAS have not been
vested with the power to make its lord benefic, although KENDRAS are powerful houses as
per astrological principles.

Stanza 8:‐
लाद ्यितीयेशौ परेषां साहचयत। 
ानारानगु ये
ु न भवतः फ़लदायकौ॥८॥
This stanza narrates that lords of 2nd and 12th house from the Ascendants is a benefic or
malefic depending on where its other sign is deposited in the chart. According as is its
property being lord of its second sign deposited house or its association with the lord of
another (malefic or benefic) house.
Here we see that the lord of second house or 12th house can also lord of only 3, 7, 11, 1, 5 0r 9th
house. Thus here also if any planet is lord of 2nd or 12th house and also he is lord of 3, 7,or 11th
house then be cannot be a benefic. In another case if any lord of 2nd or 12th house is also the
lord of 1, 5, 9th house then he is definitely a benefic as per stanza ‐6 Rule 1. Thus, the rule
narrated is justified. Extra property of acquiring benefic or malefic as association of its other
lords is narrated here, which will be clear on further explanation of these rules.

Stanza 9:‐
