CHAPTER 1 PRESENTING ASTRO DYNASTY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I would like to thank the following persons: I have had a close professional contact with the world-known astrologer recognized in India as Dr B.V Raman´s authorized astrologer: Pundit K:N: Navaratnam in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. After five years of mutual exchange of ideas, principles and over 500 well known horoscopes the basic foundation for a Hindu Sidereal Astrology Institute took place in Los Angeles with a spreading of the philosophy in USA, Europe, Asia. An international organization is being put together with headquarters in Sri Lanka and Los Angeles, California to support Hindu Vedic Astrology and its application to Microcomputers for calculative and statistical research purposes. We will also furnish a 24-hour info phone line, where charts can be ordered on an established client basis. In 1975 I had a meeting with the very well known palmist and astrologer Sri Ramakrishna Sarathy, New Delhi, whose insight to classical astrology and Brighu Sutram has been greatly appreciated and well used by me in the later years, please see chapter 9 for further information. Further I would like to thank Professor SD Prathapan of New Delhi, whose research in astro sciences has given birth to numerous combinations between astrology, numerology, palmistry and other ayurvedic sciences (crystals, gems, stones, yantra and mantrams (symbols) The first meeting in 1977 in New Delhi has been proven fruitful since all the basic predictions have come trough as explained. In between these contacts I also studied and applied professor K:S Krishnamurti Stellar Predictive Astrology System. His five major books are obtainable from Hariman Bookseller in Madras. I have since the demise of Professor Krishnamurti developed an interesting technique in the usage of the Dasa system (time Cycles) in relation to sign, star and sub-lords for timing of events for predictive purposes. Last but not least I would like to honour Professor B:V Raman, Bangalore for all of this vast knowledge that has been put to practice in this present Apple Computer Program. Professor B:V Raman is the author of 300 books and have edited the “Astrological Magazine” for 75 years. These are some of the background people who have enriched our knowledge and application of Hindu Vedic Astrology. I would also like to thank my loving wife, Lilian M. Johansson, for her dedicated work typing this complicated manual.

CHAPTER 2 INTRODUCTION TO SPIRITUAL ASTROLOGY

INTRODUCTION TO HINDU VEDIC ASTROLOGY

The set of twelve signs starting from the vernal equinox is called the annual zodiac or the tropical zodiak. It can be understood only in the light of the constellations behind. In fact, the 12 signs of the tropical zodiac can be compared to the twelve glasses of the twelve windows around the equator. The constellations can be compared to the scenery whiteout. Each window constitutes an angle of visibility of the scenery. The properties of the zodiac and its seasonal effects are subordinate to the visible symbols of the scenery. The constellations influencing the zodiac form only a part of the stars in the space around us. After having a definite idea of this, we have to study those stars that do not come under the visibility of the belt of space around the zodiac. This belt divides the visible dome of space around the earth into two hemispheres, the northern and southern. By this we mean the congregation of the stars, which assumes the shapes of the two umbrellas, one each around the north and the south poles. A stuffy of many of these stars on the umbrella as possible enables us to fathom the depths of the universal symbols. In the Puranas, the northern half-globe of space together with the stars and their shapes is described as back of a great tortoise. The portion is divided in its entirety into the back, the head, the tail and the four legs of the tortoise. By such a division, it becomes possible to locate the various stars, the glorious suns with their respective solar systems that wield their influence upon the various regions of the physical earth and various potencies of its finer vehicles. In fact, these stars exert various types of magnetic and electrical influences upon this earth, the sun-effect being the magnetism and polarity and the vital, mental and spiritual activities of this earth globe. Among these stars we find detailed descriptions of the effects of the seven seers of the Great Bear, the Pleiades and some other very great suns called Brahma, Prajapathi, Twashta, etc. Bhagavatha Purana contains a complete key of their effects in the Simsumara Chakra described in it. The story of Dhruva whose father and the two mothers are located in three other solar systems reveals the secrets of the Pole Star. The symbolism of the great serpents Vasuki and Sesha discloses the clues of the effects of the grand constellation of the Dragon with its many stars. This constellations is responsible for the poise of all the solar systems in this space globe. That is why Sesha is described as shouldering the whole burden of the material world (solar systems on the earth plane). Just as there is an axis of rotation for this earth, which links the north and the south poles, there is the larger axis to the visible space globe. This axis is called the vertebral column of the great being who inhabits the whole space globe. The constellation of the Dragon, identified with the Kundalini of that column, is thought of as a coiled serpent. The truth

19


underlying is that the great span of this space globe is a coiled principle unfolding eternally and manifesting through aeons of time into various phenomena. This serpent is said to exist on the surface of the Great Ocean of Milk (kshirasagara). This ocean has its representation in the milky way. The milky way is an immense ocean of solar globes in various stages of formation right from the stage of light being churned out of the background of darkness by a whirl-pool of force. This light is distributed into a starry matter which forms the astral body of the cosmic egg. In the next stage it is star dust and in a late stage, the wave of solar systems in formation. The story of the churning of oceans has in it many phenomena concealed. The allegory that the great Lord of the absolute in His phase of pervasion into Omnipresence (Vishnu) assumes the shape of a tortoise and thus aids in the churning of the oceans by the Devas and Danavas on either side of the great serpent Vasuki, is suggestive of the details of the origin and formation of the solar system in this cosmic globe. All Stories of various serpents in the Vedas and the Mahabharatha describe, in a mystic language, the various stages in the formation of the different clusters of solar systems. Brugu is one of the seven colours of the cosmic light emanating from the darkness beyond the levels of the physical existence. The relationship between the descendants of Brugu and the family of serpents and finally, the story of Sarpa Yaga form a master-key to cosmological wisdom. The story of the dog in the Vedas and at the beginning and ending of Mahabharatha reveals the secrets of the great sun whom we call the Dog Star. The tale of Rama, a descendant of the Brugus who annihilated the kings with his weapon, Parasu, gives a clue that “7*3=21� is the formula which contains the principles and periodicities of the cosmic intelligences manifesting as solar systems. Here we have to correlate some concepts about the planetary principles with the differences between the orthodox and the spiritual schools of astrological thought. Orthodox astrology has not much in common with the astrology of the wisdom school. The traditional and orthodox scholar of the Vedas denies that there exists a subject like Vedic astrology, but a true student of Veda, who has trained his inner sense organs in tune with his intuition at the feet of his guru, know how the astrology of the wisdom school is concealed in the Veda, Brahmana, Ithihasa and Purana literatures. Many of the fundamental concepts of the subject differ from those of popular astrology. We should not however discard the popular branch of astrology and its skeleton, astronomy. Like the skeletons and physical bodies of the men of the material plane of living, they contain what the average man wants and conceal the inner content to be revealed to those seeking after it. Just as the uninitiated does respond to the effects of his charkas and certain glands, so also the higher planetary expressions and the mysteries of the zodiac above the level of the physical sun, moon and other planetary bodies remain away from him. Similarly, he is blind and deaf to the light and music of the planets of the higher octaves. Hence great sages like Parasara, Jaimini and Varaha Mihira separated the portion of astrology required by the average man from the larger and the higher. Only here and there did they hint at the true path. They reserved the original path for those who followed the hints. Parasara and Vedavyasa gave the whole wisdom of the lights in the form of simple stories in the Puranas. The stories of Manus, the Seven Oceans, the Seven Islands, the Seven Nodes, the Seven cosmic and solar Breaths (Maruths), the stories of Siva, Vishnu, Brahma, Twashta, Prajapathis, Agnis, etc., contain the secrets of the true astrological wisdom of the Vedas. The stories of the planets and their lokas and the order of sequence of the planetary planes therein, will make the average man laugh away at them because, they seem incredible as they

20


do not fit into the order of planets around the sun of our solar system either centripetally or centrifugally.

The distance of planets given in the Puranas are not from the earth-centre but from the centre of this cosmic globe. The Puranas speak of an innumerable number of such space globes containing infinite number of physical suns emerging and merging. They compare these globes to the banyan fruits and the suns of each globe to the seeds in a fruit. The path to the garden of God is supposed to have many roads all lined by such trees on either side. They also compare these space globes ( for purposes of certain higher calculations and practical hints on occultism) with the ova of the great ethereal uterus of mother-nature, the Mula Prakruthi. The Puranic astrology also hints that the elongations of moon (Tidhis) and the tidal disturbances on this earth are but the epitomized drama of the lunar lineage in which Manus and Manvantharas occur in the same order as those of the elongations of our moon. They affect the round of the creation in the same manner but through altogether different periods of time. Such a concept is suggestive of the existence of a higher lunar deity whom the sages know as Soma. This lunar deity alters the polarity of the solar rays (the solar rays through Uranus in the Yuga scale and those of a still higher planet Twashta in the Manvanthara scale) into the lunar rays. The solar ray is the positive or transmitting pole of the electric cell of the universe and the lunar ray is its negative or the receiving pole. The solar ray is masculine in the sense that it is creative and self-manifest from within. The lunar ray is feminine in the sense that it is reproductive and serves to hatch the spirit of the solar ray into the matter-state of spirit through reflection on the objective plane. Thus the lunar ray is the soul-principle between the spirit and matter principles. It is a reflecting principle in its nature, just as our moon mirrors the sun’s rays upon this earth. The lunar ray preserves and so recollects the shapes of the preceding round. The present matter shaped after the past has to re-enact its role in the drama of this whole evolution. To sum up in a few words. 1. There are three principles governing the creation: The solar, the lunar and the material principles. They precipitate into the sun, moon and earth planes as planetary tissues and as planetary Bodies. Their reflections or effects are the sun, the moon and the ascendant in the individual horoscope. 2. As these three principles progress, they serve as the spirit, the soul and the body of the cosmic man as also of the individual man. 3. As these three principles are ever moving on the surface of space-time, they make different angles among themselves to manifest as Manvantharas on the cosmic scale, elongations on the earth scale and moods on the individual scale.

21


CHAPTER 3 BACKGROUND PHILOSOPHY TO VEDIC ASTROLOGY

22


GENERAL PRINCIPLES Some might say that it is only Astronomy that is mentioned as a limb of the Vedas and not Astrology i.e. the science of prediction. The predictive part of astrology is as scientific based upon the latter. Moreover the ancient Sages had discovered the truth of predictive astrology through their meditation or penance and intuitional perception. All the authors of Dharma Sastras-Vyasa, Valmiki, Kalidasa and a host of other poets and seers have cherished and developed this science of astrology, which is one of the corner stones of Indian culture. So if you have any regard for culture as such, you must necessarily pay your homage to this science. Astrology is an old as the Veda, which is held as Apauruseya or eternal and only, revealed at the commencement of each cycle. In ancient India astrologers where held in high esteem, as they combined both a scientific bent of mind and a spiritual outlook on life as well as a pure life of high moral standard. They practised this lore not for amassing wealth, but for giving guidance to the needy and the distressed. Their aim was to remove the cause of suffering among the people and to turn their minds towards Dharma and God. Hence a reverential attitude is expected of the students of astrology. Readers might be aware of what the Lord says towards the end of the Gita: “This ought not to be imparted to one who has no peance, no devotion, no interest in the subject and to one who hates Me.” This remark applies whith equal force to astrology too. The Sun being the Lord of the planetary kingdom, Hamsa, the Pure One, ideal of Brahmacarya and Yoga as well as the One praised in the Great Gayatri Mantra, ought to be invoked at the commencement of this study for blessing us all, the teacher and the taught, with a clear intellect, an understanding heart and pure thoughts. May we bask in the Gracious Light of that Supreme Effulgence! THE PLANETS We are showing that each Planet, which is found in the Rising Asterism at the birth, seems to correspond with certain basic characteristics in every individual born at that time. To fully understand the apparent effects of each Planet, not only when it appears at the Rising Point, but also when it appears at other points in the heavens at the time of birth, one must fully understand the character correspondences which are inherent in the Planet itself, so that these correspondences may be applied, not only at the Rising Point, but also at other points in the birth chart. A detailed study of the conditions corresponding to each of the Planets-per semust therefore be made. A study of such Planetary correspondences will include those of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, Pranpad, Pluto, Gulik, Rahu and Kethu (Nodes of the Moon). In Hindu astrology, only the visible planets are used, plus the North and South Nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Kethu. Further each of these elements are associated with a certain period “Dasa”, which form the basis of their Nakshatra, (Lunar Mansions or Asterisms), ruler ships and predictive system, (Dasas). THE HOUSES-LAGNA OR RISING SIGN We are examining the Rising Point, i.e., the first point of the First House of the Asterism Chart. Each Map of the Heavens at birth is divided into twelve parts or sections. These are

23


known as the Houses of the horoscope. The planets and other significant points in the heavens at birth must be placed in their time locations in the Map of Birth and each planet may fall in any one of the twelve Houses. Each House represents certain routine activities and conditions of everyday human existence. The correspondences inherent in each planet must be applied to the particular House in which that planet is found at the time of birth. A full knowledge of the scope of each House is therefore necessary in order to determine the effect, which each planet manifest when acting through the House it occupies. The house system used is said to originate from Parasara and is the one preferred by the traditional Hindu astrologer. It is similar to the western “Equal House”( Porphyry) system with two important differences: 1. The Midheaven is not ordinarily considered, and 2. The “cups” of the houses mark the CENTRE of the house rather than the BEGINNING of the house, i.e. the point of greatest intensity. Thus the 1 st , house is the zone extending 15 degrees on either side of the Rising Sign, and so with the rest of the houses. The total chart format in the program then is that the rectangular chart form is a Sign chart. THE ZODIACAL SIGNS The inherent characteristics corresponding with each Zodiacal Sign must also be fully comprehended. A given planet will produce a different set of correspondences in each Zodiacal Sign in which that planet may be found at birth. It is therefore necessary for the student to be familiar with each of the twelve Signs of the Zodiac and with the modifications or intensifications imparted by each sign to the planet found within its limits. Hindu astrology is founded on the fixed zodiac of the constellations and is thus sidereal, (Nirayana). However, as mentioned there was a brief period in certain parts of India where the tropical. (Sayana) zodiac was used. This program includes only the sidereal zodiac. To learn and explore the authentic Indian system you are advised to use only the sidereal zodiac.

24


THE DEGREES Not only is the sign position of each planet of the utmost importance in judging a birth chart, but the particular Degree of the sign in which the planet is located must be taken into consideration. A planet in ten Degrees of Taurus, for example, results in a combination of specific correspondences, quite different from those, which occur if the same planet is in, say eight Degrees of the same sign. Since each zodiacal sign extends over an arc of thirty Degrees, it can readily be understood that each Degree of each sign or a total of three hundred and sixty Degrees must be studied so that the effect of any particular Degree upon the planet, which is stationed on that Degree, may be ascertained. THE ASPECTS Each planet and each significant point in the heavens (such significant points for instance as Rahu, Kethu, the Rising Point etc.) has a certain geometrical relationship in space to each of the others. In astrology when the geometrical relationships of two planets are expressed in terms of certain angels, one planet is said to aspect the other. Thus, if two planets are situated 1800 apart in the Map of Heavens at birth, these two planets are said to be in Opposition Aspect to each other. If they are in the same part of the heavens, not more than six to eight degrees apart, they are said to conjunct each other. Other Aspects which depend on angular relationships are the Square (900 ), the Trine (1200 ), the Textile (600 ), the Semi-Textile (300 ), and others of less importance. When one planet aspects another, it has a definite effect of modification or intensification, or even alteration on the correspondences usually found as a result of the planets position as to sign and house. Aspects between planets, therefore, are extremely important in judging a birth chart. Aspects in Indian astrology are taken from sign/house to sign/house and “orbs” are not considered. Aspects are commonly expressed as so many houses from the significator, so that with the Sun in, say, the 3rd and the Moon in the 6th, (a western “square”), the Hindu astrologer would express this as “the Moon is in the 4th from the Sun”. Similarly, if Venus is in the 2nd then Venus is in the 12th from the Sun, and the 9th from the Moon. THE DIGNITIES AND STRENGTHS There are certain sections of the heavens, certain degrees of the Zodiac, certain houses in the birthchart, where the influence of a particular planet is stronger than in others. The planet is said to be powerful, when it occupies these positions. Conversely, there are sections, where the power of the same planet will be very weak. The particular sections, in which each planet is powerful or weak, vary according to the planet. It is essential therefore to know the powerful and weak positions of each planet in order to be able to balance the correspondences of one planet against another. THE BIRTH CHARTS

The object of constructing an Asterism Chart of birth is to determine the Rising Point in order to discover where asterisms and planets were at that point. Having obtained this information, we proceeded to give certain correspondences peculiar to each asterism on the Rising Point and to each planet, which occupied that Rising Asterism. We are concerned only with that particular point. But since it is necessary to obtain more than a mere general outline of each individual ´s characteristics and potentialities, and these can only be obtained by a balancing of all the factors predominating at the time of birth, full Birth Maps must be constructed, which show the position of all planets in addition to those which may have been at the Rising Point.

We have used the North Indian rectangular chart form with the Rising Sign (or Lagna) at the top portion of the chart.

The difference in the two forms is that in Form I the births will always 6 be at the locations (houses) as shown 8 in the form. If the Rising Sign (or Lagna) is Aries, Aries automatically becomes the first house. Then in clockwise direction we will have the subsequent houses. If the Rising Sign is Virgo, then Virgo automatically becomes the first house and the subsequent house will be counted in a clockwise manner from that house. 5

In North India the house marked I (first) will always be the Rising Sign whatever be the Rising Sign. For example, the Rising Sign is Libra or in other words the Rising Sign falls in Libra at birth, we will put the Rising Sign in the first house. Thereafter, we move in anticlockwise direction and the second house will be in Scorpio, the third in Sagittarius and so on. If the Rising Sign is Leo then the sign of Leo will be the first house and the second house will be Virgo and so on. Another difference is that in South India the numbers of the signs are not written in the chart and one has to remember the place reserved for Aries and signs would always remain the same. In North India the Rising Sign is put in the first house and the eleven signs subsequent to the Rising Sign in the other eleven houses.

In Example I, according to Form I given previously the Rising Sign is Sagittarius. If we move clockwise the second house will fall in Capricorn, the third in Aquarius and ultimately the twelfth house will fall in Scorpio.

In Example II , we have indicated the number of the sign that has risen. In other words we have indicated the sign of the Rising Point; No 7 means the sign of Libra. So the Rising Sign is Libra and moving in the anticlockwise direction, we will have the second house in Scorpio, the third in Sagittarius and ultimately the twelfth in the sign of Virgo. In this form all the houses are marked by the numbers of their signs. In the Birth Chart (or Rasi Chart) “the House containing the figure “1” is the Rising Sign. Once calculated, the actual planetary longitudes play no further part and are not placed within the chart. Stress is instead placed on the relative Sign/House positions of the planets. In Western Astrology, only one chart of the conditions of the heavens at the birth of an individual is constructed. In the Hindu System, however, no less than seven birth charts must be drawn and sometimes it is necessary to use ten or sixteen charts. These must all be erected and read together, because they interlock with each other’s. DASA It is necessary to remember the basic principle that the science of Astrology presupposes a belief in the theory of Karma and of Re-incarnation of the individual soul. It is also understood that is a Supreme Power called God who is the sole dispenser of the effect of actions, good, bad and indifferent, done by human beings in their earthly existence. Astrology helps us in probing the mysterious working of the Law of Karma, provided we approach the subject with reverence and humility. Astrology is not an ordinary science, but the Science of all sciences. For understanding this super-science, the ordinary scientific apparatus will therefore not be sufficient.

27


Now comes the question as to when the person is likely to experience the effects of his good Karmas or deeds as well as those of his bad ones. This is called the method of timing certain events in the life of an individual. But the difficulty is that there are several methods prevalent in different parts of India and the world for arriving at the time of fruition of one’s Karma. The periods at which they are expected to bear fruit are technically called DASAS. In common parlance the word DASA means only condition or state. We say that a person is passing through the Dasa of a particular planet. So we have to understand from this that it is the period in which that planet exercises its influence solely on account of its condition i.e. strength and other special features. In other words it shows, the Dasa or condition, good, bad or indifferent, through which the subject is passing as a result of his past Karma that is suggested by the planetary condition. In the Dasa system the span of human life is 120 years and this is distributed among the nine planets. However, the order of the Dasas or Major and Sub-periods of the nine planets is not the same as that of the weekdays with Rahu and Kethu added at the end. The Dasas operate as follows: A) The Sun’s major period of 6 years for the natal stars. B) After this the period of the Moon for 10 years. C) Then that of Mars for 7 years. D) Then that of Rahu for 18 years. E) Then that of Jupiter for 16 years. F) Then that of Saturn for 19 years. G) Then that of Mercury for 17 years. H) Then that of Kethu for 7 years. I) Lastly that of Venus for 20 years. In the case of sub-periods, minor periods, etc. the same order is followed. The mutual relationship between a Dasalord and the Lord of a sub-Dasa (Bhuktilord) must also be harmonious for good effects to be reaped. The idea is that the Lord of an Antardasa, sub-sub, should not be in the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the Dasalord. During the Dasa of a planet the native will experience or enjoy those substances that are ascribed to that planet, profession appropriated to it, the special effects of the House, and Sign occupied or aspected by it and the effects of the special Yoga's produced by it. The measure of these things depends on the strength of the planet concerned. PRESENT DESTINY Each individual’s present destiny is the result of several factors as follows: (1) The past thoughts and actions of his ancestors (2) His own past thoughts and actions (3) His own past aspirations.

FUTURE DESTINY His future destiny will depend on the following factors: (1) His present environment and family ties ( the result of the first three).

28


(2) His present aspirations. (3) His will to attain and to free himself from his present self-imposed limitations.

It is impossible to determine all these factors from one chart and, unless all these factors are known, it is impossible to give any conclusive advice. Indeed, any conclusions arrived at may under certain conditions be actually contrary to the true facts. In Hindu Astrology, many charts must be erected and read separately and the evidence contributed by each one must be balanced with all the others, in order to arrive at a concise and clear picture of all the forces, which have culminated in that particular individual. VARGAS Vargas is the numerical division of the degrees of a sign. These subdivisions enable us to find out the exact nature of a planet and of its modifiers. According to Parasara: From the Rising Sign: Ascertain everything about the body, constitution and health of the native. 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/7 1/9 1/10 1/12 1/16 1/20 1/24 1/27 1/30 1/40 1/45 1/60

From Hora: His wealth and income. From Drekkana: About the native’s brothers and sisters. From Turyamsa: One’s fortune and general welfare. From Saptamsa: About one’s children and grandchildren. From Navamsa: About the wife or husband. Partners and relations. From Dasamsa: Great results, Occupation, Profession and Status. From Dwadasamsa: About the parents; Happiness and Unhappiness. From Shodasamsa: Conveyances, Property, Land, Personal Belongings. From Vimsamsa: Spiritual nature and development. Meditation. From Sidhamsa: Education and spiritual achievement. From Nakshatramsa: Strength in personality, Weakness. From Trimsamsa: Misfortunes & Malefic effects. From Swavedamsa: Good & Bad effects. From Akshavedamsa: Pious or Sinful. From Shastiamsa: In case of Twins.

VARGAS AND HOW TO TIME EVENTS WITH THE DASA SYSTEM (The Sub charts of the Hindu Zodiac) Astrology is such a profound discipline that it is well nigh impossible even for experienced astrologers to remember all the rules all the time. What one may do is to keep in mind certain basic principles and apply them systematically in analysing a horoscope. These principles are laid down in such works as the Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra of the sage Parasara and the Brihat Jataka of the great Varahamihira. Much importance is given to the Vargas in these classics. The Vargas are the sub-divisions of a Sign into one-half (Hora), one third (Drekkana), one-fourth (Turyamsa), etc. Of these, the Navamsa, i.e.. The division of a Sign into nine parts, each of 3020´, is considered most important. The Navamsa chart is examined in judging almost every aspect of life associated with the twelve Houses of a natal chart. The Vargas are used in computing the strength of the planets and also in the timing of events. While the birth chart indicates the direction in which one should look for a result pertaining to a House, its extent and confirmation are obtained from the positions of the planets in the Navamsa Chart. For the timing of an event, as seen from the Birth and the Navamsa Charts,one must take into account the periods and the sub-periods of the concerned planets according to the Vimshottari Dasa system and examine their positions in the relevant varga. For still finer delineation the effect of the planets in transit (Gochara) should be kept in mind. By applying the principles in the above sequence one can derive reasonably correct conclusions. Here below you will find a brief summary of the effects associated with some vargas and an explanation of the Hora´s importance. As stated above, the Birth Chart provides the base for deriving astrological conclusions. For a particular trait the concerned House, the strength and the nature of its lord and aspects of other planets on the House and its lord should be examined. The Hora (wealth and income) sub-division indicates the position of the Rising Sign (or Lagna) and the planets either in Cancer, viz., the Hora of the Moon, or in Leo, the Hora of the Sun. Financial prosperity and temperament should be judged from the Hora sub-division. The word Hora means day and night. There are 24 horas within a full day and night of 24 hours covering 12 signs of the Zodiac. Each sign has 30 degrees, which is divided into two equal parts of 15 degrees each. Each part is a Hora.

For odd signs like Aries. Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius the Sun governs the first Hora; the Moon is the owner of their second Hora. For even signs like Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces the Moon governs the first Hora; the Sun is the owner of their second Hora. The Sun being a masculine and fiery planet, his Horas get masculine and fire generating qualities. The Moon being a feminine and watery planet, her Horas get feminine and cold generating qualities. So in each sign both male and female characteristics of Nature exist. Horas of the Sun are masculine and cruel. Horas of the Moon are mild and feminine. Hora mainly indicates acquisition of wealth, sources of income, etc., along with other features of our life.

30


The strong Sun’s Hora gives us much inclination towards the worship pf our favourite God/Goddess and the strong Moon´s Hora gives us much attachment to parents. In accordance with Jaimini Sutras (Philosophical books), the Soul Indicator (or Atmakaraka) of a native speaks of the favourite God/Goddess to be worshipped to get protection from calamities. When the Rising Sign, the Soul Indicator (Atmakaraka) and the Moon are in the Sun´s Hora we try to get the blessings of our favourite God and when they are in the Moon’s Hora we try to get the blessings of our parents in times of danger. When most of the planets are in the Sun´s Hora, relation with parents suffers. When most of the planets are in the Moon´s Hora, we get too much attachment with parents. A native with Rising Sign, Soul Indicator (atmakaraka) and the Moon in the Sun’s Hora gets all good human qualities and lives a very prosperous life with rank, honour and prestige. But he suffers from misunderstanding due to egotism. The same combination in the Moon´s Hora gives him happy and prosperous life by right means. He gets an attractive body and sweet relations with women. When most of the planets are in the Sun’s Hora, a woman gets masculine temperament and appearance. Her feminine charms and sweetness disappear. A man, with most of the planets in the Moon’s Hora, gets feminine nature. Boldness, etc, are seldom noticed. Generally malefic in the Sun´s Hora and benefices in the Moon´s Hora are very helpful. Malefic in the Sun´s Hora give dynamic power and energy, valour and courage. This combination makes a man cruel, greedy, and harsh in speech. He becomes very rich by fair means or foul. But his mental happiness is disturbed. Benefices in the Moon’s Hora give sweet temperament, attractive appearance and personality. He gets much worldly pleasure and happiness and is also religiously inclined. When both the Horas are equally powerful, mixed qualities and results are achieved in life.

Soul Indicator (Atmakaraka) in the Sun´s Hora gives spiritual development. The same in the Moon´s Hora gives material development. The same in the Moon’s Hora gives material development. Malefic in the Sun´s Hora in odd sign are very good to achieve material gain. Benefices in the Moon´s Hora in even sign produce the same result. If the position is reversed, misery and distress are the results. Even good endeavours bear fruit. When the majority of the planets are in the Sun’s Hora and the Rising Sign is in the Moon´s Hora, the native acquires good financial prosperity. When the majority of the planets are in Moon´s Hora with the Rising Sign in the Sun´s Hora, the native gets money and faces more expenses. When the Rising Sign, the Soul Indicator (Atmakaraka) and the Moon are in the Sun’s Hora or in the Moon’s Hora with the majority of planets, much self-confidence and zeal will result with good acquisition of wealth. The results of the planets in different signs in different Horas are shown on next page.

31


In odd signs in Hora of the Sun: The Sun gives good political success and a shining career. The Moon gives an emotional and unhappy mind. Mars gives much courage, valour, energy, good workmanship, high rank and good financial prospects. He gives hot temperament. Mercury gives break in education, fever and money through the work of canvassing, etc. Jupiter gives stomach and liver trouble. Venus gives weak sex and unhappy marriage. Saturn gives success in service, career and also bone disease. Rahu and Kethu give financial success by evil means and give the career of an executioner or a butcher. In odd signs in the Hora of Moon: The Sun gives bad health. The Moon gives weak mind with financial prospects. Mars gives money by courage, fighting and agriculture. He gives blood disease. Mercury gives sweet speech and good education. Jupiter gives good position and money by right means. He gives fat and skin disease. Venus gives a beautiful and quarrelsome wife. He also gives kidney trouble. Saturn gives bronchial trouble. Rahu and Kethu give money as well as enemies. They give trouble from water and animals. In even signs in the Hora of the Sun: The Sun gives money by trade in medicine. He gives temporary success in political life. The Moon gives low intelligence with good technical workmanship. Mars gives high rank and financial prospect with bilious trouble. Mercury gives education with weak speaking power. He gives money through clerical jobs and the like. But the native gets nerve disease. Jupiter gives noble heart and good reputation. He also gives the trouble of the gall bladder. Venus gives fame and prospect in dance, drama and as a writer. He also gives a wife of questionable character. Saturn gives birth of a good painter and model. This combination keeps father in bad health. Rahu gives shameless character and relations with many women. He gives money without status in society. Kethu gives religious inclination. In even signs in the Hora of the Moon: The Sun gives a low and peevish mind. The Moon gives birth of a noble, respectable and happy man with all-round prospect. Mars gives surgical operation and accident in water and also a short-lived wife. Mercury gives good intellectual power, vast education. Jupiter gives fame in research work and in writing books. He gives high rank in banking service. Venus gives sweet behaviour and tactfulness. He gives attractive girls from high society. Saturn gives much passion with mental agony and rheumatic pain. This combination keeps the mother in bad health. Rahu gives birth of an antisocial man with financial success. Kethu gives knack in occult science and a good hand in secret enmity. Temperamentally, birth of a male in the Sun´s Hora and of a female in the Moon´s Hora impart the characteristics associated with the respective sexes. A DREKKANA (brother and sisters) is 1/3 division of a sign. A planet or the Rising Sign is shown in the same sign in the Drekkana chart as in the Birth Chart, if the corresponding longitude is up to 100 , in the fifth sign for longitudes 100 –200 and in the ninth sign for 200 – 300 . The Drekkana chart is examined with reference to professional status and achievements assistance and help from others and with regard to the status of Coburn’s. Thus, if the 10th

32


house lord in the Birth chart is posited in an angular house, triangular or even in a house of growth in the Drekkana, improvements over the results indicated by the Birth chart should be expected during the Dasa or Bhukti of the 10th house lord. On the other hand, if such a lord is posited in a succeedent house, particularly in the 3rd, 6th or 12th house in the Drekkana (brother and sisters), then even the good results indicated by its position in the Sign get subdued and modified during its Dasa and Bhukti. An odd sign rising in the Drekkana is indicative of harsh temperament. Marks of injury, mole, imprisonment and the cause of death should also be judged from the Drekkana. The disposition of the 3rd house and its lord in the Sign and the corresponding position in the Drekkana indicates the nature of friends and supporters. The number of planets aspecting the Drekkana Rising Sign or its lord, whichever is strong, gives the number of brother and sisters. The SAPTAMSA (children and grandchildren), which is a division of a Sign into seven equal parts, is an index of progeny. From the Saptamsa chart one may predict as many issues as the number of powerful planets aspecting the Rising Sign. An odd sign rising in the Saptamsa Rising Sign, if it is strong, indicates more male than female issues. If the 5th house lord in the Birth chart is favourable placed one may expect fortunate results during the Dasa and Bhukti of such planets, which are posited in an Angular house (Kendra) or Triangular House (Trikona) in the Saptamsa chart. On the other hand, planets in the 3rd, the 6th, the 8th and 12th house in the Saptamsa chart cause bad results during their Dasa and Bhukti even though the 5th house lord may be placed in a good house in the Birth chart.

Personality, intelligence, live hood, spouse, children etc., are judged from the NAVAMSA (husband, wife and relationships) chart. A planet in debility in the Sign but in exaltation, or in own house in the Navamsa, yields good results pertaining to the House it owns in the Birth chart. On the other hand a planet in exaltation in the Birth chart but in debilitation in the Navamsa is incapable of giving good results. If the Rising Sign or a planet is in the same sign, both in the Birth chart and Navamsa, it is said to be in the Vargottama Navamsa. In such a situation the Rising Sign or the planet is considered to be strong a fully capable of giving the results attributed to it in the Birth chart. The qualities and the character of wife or husband and also the time marriage should be judged from the Navamsa chart. If the Navamsa Rising Sign is owned or aspect by benefice planets, its lord and the Significator (Karaka) Venus are well placed, one may predict a happy married life. The Dasa and Bhukti of planets posited in evil houses in the Navamsa bring trouble to the spouse, misunderstanding in married life and, in severe cases even separation. The nature of profession is judged from that of the planet who’s Navamsa is occupied by the lord of the 10th house in the Birth chart. For example, if the lord of the 10th house in the Birth chart is in the Navamsa of Mercury, which is strong in the Birth chart, one earns his live hood through a scholarly profession.

The DASAMSA (great results, occupation, profession, status) chart indicates the status of one’s professional career. If the lord of the 10th house in the Birth chart is posited in an Angular house (Kendra) or a Triangular house (Trikona) in the Dasamsa, rise in professional status should be predicted during its Dasa or Bhukti. The status of parents, health and longevity are seen from the DWADASAMSA (parents, happiness and unhappiness) chart.

33


NAKSHATRAMSA (strength in personality, weakness). Of greater importance than the signs, in Hindu astrology, is the Lunar Mansion placement of the planets and the Rising Sign. The Lunar Mansions (Nakshatras, Constellations) are a 1/27 division of the ecliptic based on the Moon. Although History indicates that originally there were 28 Lunar Mansions (also called Asterisms), only 27 are employed by Indian astrologers. Hindu astrologers are more apt to state planetary positions in terms of the Lunar Zodiac than by sign and, in fact, the “Sun Sign� holds no more importance that any other planet to the Indian astrologer. Of particular importance is the placement and ruler of the Moon at birth. SUMMARY: Consideration of only the Rising Sign or the Birth chart, Drekkana (brothers and sisters), Navamsa (husband and wife), Dwadamsa (parents, happiness) and Trimsamsa (misfortunes) has been called SHADVARGA system. With Saptamsa (children), the system is called SAPTAVARGA. With additional Vargas like Dasamsa (great results, occupation, profession, status) Shodamsa (conveyances, property, land), and Shastiamsa (in case of twins), the system goes under the name DASASVARGA A planet occupying more than one Varga of its own is considered to be stronger. If a planet occupies its own varga twice, it is called PARIJATAMSA STRENGTH, three times = PARRRVATHAMSA, four times = SIMHASANSAMSA, five times = SWARGABALAMSA, six times = INDRAMSA, seven times = RAJAPADMAMSA, eight times = GOPURAMSA, nine times = BHRAHMADAMSA, ten times = VAISHNAVAMSA, eleven times = SAIVAMSA, twelwe times = VAISESHIKAMSA. It is difficult to find planets with INDRAMSA and more in any horoscope. The people who have been addressed as DAIVAMSA SAMBHOOTA (giving divine support) indicate some such strength in their horoscopes.

TIME ZONE NUMBER To find the time zone number, you need to know two things: A) What time zone the birthplace was in, and B) Whether Standard Time or some other kind of time such as Daylight Saving, War, Summer, or Double Summer Time was in use. You can get an idea of which time zone is the correct one by consulting the U.S time zone map or the world time zone map. Also, the list of latitudes and longitudes of major U.S cities You are now ready to determine what kind of time was in use. If it was Standard Time, you enter the number of the time zone into the computer with no further correction. If it was Daylight Saving, War, or Summer Time, you subtract 1 from the time zone number before entering it into the computer. For example, for Eastern Standard Time you would type in “5”, but for Eastern Daylight Time you would type in “4”. For Central European Standard Time you would enter “-1”, but for Central European Summer Time you would enter “-2”. For Double Summer Time, which was used in Europe in some years, you would subtract 2. Most of the world adopted time zones and Standard Time in 1883, but since then time zone boundaries and the dates Daylight Saving time was observed have changed a number of times at the whim of national, state, and local governments. Listing all the time changes is impossible in this book, but fortunately, if you don’t know them, you will be only an hour wrong (or occasionally two hours, if both the zone and the kind of time are in error in the same direction). The time changes observed nationwide or nearly so in the U:S: are as follows:

37


- Time Zone Number 1883 Nov 18, noon; Standard Time adopted by U:S: railroaded. This meant that most Localities stopped using local mean time and adopted one of four time zones in the Continental U:S: 1918 Mar. 31 2 AM: Standard Time Zones legalized by Act of Congress, and entire country goes on War Time. 1918 Okt. 27, 2 AM: Entire country reverts to Standard Time. 1919 Mar. 30, 2 AM: Entire country goes on War Time. 1919. Mar. 30, 2 AM: Entire country goes on War Time. 1919 Okt. 26, 2 AM: Entire country reverts to Standard Time. Observance of Daylight Saving Time between the wars was a matter of local choice during the summer. 1942, Feb. 9. 2 AM: Entire country goes on War Time. 1945. Sept. 30. 2 AM: Entire country reverts to Standard Time. Observance of Daylight Saving Time becomes a matter of local choice in summer. 1967. Apr, 30. 2 AM: Uniform Time Act goes into effect. From this date, Daylight Saving Time begins every year at 2 AM the last Sunday in April, and Standard Time resumes At 2 AM the last Sunday in October. This is observed nationwide except for the Following places, which appear to have used Standard Time throughout the year most Of Alaska (1967, 1968), Arizona (1968 and after), Hawaii (1967 and after), parts of Michigan (1967 through 1973). There appear to be some inconsistencies in other states As well. 1974, Jan. 6, 2 AM Entire country goes on Daylight Saving Time because of energy crisis. 1974, Okt. 27. 2 AM: Entire country reverts to Standard Time. 1975. Feb. 23. 2 AM: Entire country goes on Daylight Saving Time. 1975. Okt. 26. 2 AM: Entire country reverts to Standard Time, and thereafter dates of Daylight Saving Time follows Uniform Time Act of 1967.

As useful as these sources are, they are not error-free. There are still areas where the time picture is ambiguous. When possible, it is desirable to check further. Other sources include newspapers, railroad timetables, and local authorities. Occasionally, especially for births before 1883, you will encounter Local Mean Time, usually abbreviated as “LMT,” Instead of the time zone number, you should type in the amount of time that the local time differs from time at the 00 meridian in Greenwich, England. To do this, you. Find the longitude of the birthplace (for example; 72,W, 34). Multiply the degrees by 4 (72 x 4 = 288). Multiply the minutes by 4 and divide by 60 (34 x 4 + 60 = 2.27). Add the two results together (288 + 2.27 = 290.27). Divide this result by 60 to get the number to type into the computer when it calls for “TIME ZONE NUMBER” (290.27 + 60 = 4.83) if you are working with a west longitude, this number is positive (but you don’t need to type a plus sign); if you are working with an east longitude, this number is negative and needs to be typed in preceded by a minus sign.

CHAPTER 5 DATA ENTRY. FROM THE BIRTH DATA REVIEWING THE PRINTOUT OF THE 16 VARGAS

46


DATA ENTRY This section is important to the final outcome. So please spend a few minutes to go through this segment so very vital to the printing of the 16 Vargas. We are now going through the birth information of the program that is used for processing the Vedic charts. HOW TO ENTER THE BIRTH DATA This is the birth information on our test-person born in England (UK) on Mars 29, 1954 at 6.00 am. What your enter Name

We will now discuss how we arrived at the data above, and where to find all previous values, if they differ on Time Zones or Longitude or Latitude or have Wartime or Daylight Saving Time etc. HOW TO ENTER THE NAME OF THE PERSON NAME Type in first and last name with one space in between. Here you can also enter today’s date in parenthesis, if preferred for your records or filing system. If it is not a client, you enter the name you have chosen for your filing purposes and then hit RETURN. You can use 34 characters on this line; any additional characters will automatically be deleted. HOW TO ENTER THE BIRTH DATE

47


The traditional American standard is used, since the program’s largest market is in USA, but it can be customized for Indian standards too.

What you enter DATE = MM:DDYYYY

03.291954 Obviously you enter the month, MM, First and you always use two Digits e.g. Jan = 01. March 03. Oct = 10. Always type a period After the month. DD = day and you always use two Digits e.g. 1st = 01 9th = 09 11th = 11 etc. IMPORTANT: do not type a period or comma after the day but continue with the YYYY = year e.g. 1954, always use four digits.

THE B.C ENTRY The Vedic Master extends into 999 B:C:, so for February 9, 999 you would do the following entry: 02.09.999. Another thing to keep on mind is that there never was a year zero (0 BC). Obviously the entry for the birth of Jesus the Christ born on December 24, year 1, would be as fallows: 12.240001. That is the standard way these dates are taken care of. MORNING OR NIGHT / AM OR PM Enter AM, if the birth took place between midnight and noon (local time). Exception: If DST (daylight Savings Time) was in effect and the person was born 00.55 am, you have to deduct one hour and your entry would subsequently be 11.55 PM instead, which means the day before. EXAMPLE: Birth when DST was in effect August 8, 1982 00.38 AM Los Angeles, California

Your Entry 08.071982

AM/PM?

PM

STANDARD TIME Etc.

11.38 etc.

48


You will have to find out yourself if DST was in effect, because the computer program does not take this into account. For this purpose you can use “Time Changes in the USA” and “Time Changes in the World” by Doris Chase Doane and published by the American Federation of Astrologers.

In other words the person above was born on the previous day according to the calendar and western timing system, but not according to the Indian Hindu system, which day is calculated from the sunrise to sunrise the following day. Double Daylight Savings Time, Wartime and European Summertime’s should be treated in the same way as above. For Double Daylight Savings Time You subtract 2 hours from the birth time. DDST or Double Summer Time is often used in Great Britain. TIME ZONE Here you enter HOURS and MINUTES (HH:M) away from Greenwich Mean Time (reduced to Whole hours). Astrologers in U.S.A work with different standard time Zones: Eastern Standard Time

(EST)

= 5 hours

Central Standard Time

(CST)

= 6 hours

Mountain Standard Time (MST)

= 7 hours

Pacific Standard Time

= 8 hours

(PST)

Generally one hour of time is equal to 15 degrees of Longitude. Time Zones are measured both West and East of the Greenwich Meridian (0 Time Zone). The Vedic Master program requires that Time Zones West of Greenwich (towards the U.S.) be entered as a positive number and Time Zones East of Greenwich (towards the U.S.S.R.) be entered as a negative number. Take a look at the diagrams showing the Time Zone Divisions in the U.S.A. page 39 and Time Zones of the World, page 38. There are a few countries that have a Time Zone that is measured to the half hour (Newfoundland, etc.). If that is the case, you should enter hours and minutes in the HH.MM. format. For example, Newfoundland Time (NFT) is 3 ½ hours from Greenwich and the entry should be made as 3.30, and so on. HOW TO ENTER THE PLACE OF BIRTH To enter the geographic coordinates or birthplace you will need an Atlas or “Longitudes in the U.S” or “Longitudes & Latitudes Throughout the world ”Published the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA). The entry format is as follows DD.MM., where DD Stands for Degrees of Longitude from 0 – 360, and MM Stands for Minutes , which has to be entered as two digits. Example if the place is at Longitude 1 degree and 1 minute you would enter 1.01.

49


Eastern Longitudes (those East of Greenwich like Russia, etc.) must be preceded by a minus (-) sign – negative numbers. The Geographic Latitude is entered in the same way as Geographic Longitude except that Latitudes run from 0-90 degrees. Latitude should be entered in DD:MM format as well and Southern Latitudes are entered as negatives i.e. preceded by a minus (-) sign. TIME ZONES OF THE WORLD STANDARD TIME ZONES On October 1, 1884, an International Time Conference adopted the Greenwich Meridian as the prime meridian or zero degree point and divided the world into 24 equal divisions of 15 degrees each. Below is a table of the current International Time Zones as used in the Hindu Vedic Astrology Master. MERIDIAN

CHAPTER 6 HOW TO READ AND INTERPRET THE PRINTOUT. SAMPLE DIRECTIONS

51


CHAPTER 6 HOW TO READ AND INTERPRET THE PRINTOUT. SAMPLE DIRECTIONS. Go to the first page of the computer printout To identify the correct birth data, at the top of the page check the following: Name Day Month Year Time Zone Longitude Latitude Ayanamsha Write down the following information on a separate piece of paper, if above is correct. A. SIGNS 1. The Rising Sign (Lagna, Ascendant), Sign, Degree, Minutes and look up Rising Signs on page 139. Our sample is a Pisces Rising, see page 154. To find out what planets are good and bad for this particular Rising Sign go to page 167. Make note of this and all coming observations on your separate piece of paper. 2.

Now proceed to identify the Longitude of the planets. First the Sun, Which In our sample is in Pisces = 140 48´, see page 119.

3.

The Moon following our sample is in Capricorn = 30 37’ , see page 120

4.

Mercury: in Aquarius = 170 02’ , see page 123.

5.

Venus: in Pisces = 290 04’ , see page 125.

6.

Mars In Sagittarius = 00 55’ , see page 121.

7.

Jupiter: in Taurus = 260 36’ , see page 123.

8.

Saturn: in our sample in Libra = 140 51’ , see page 126.

9.

Rahu: in Libra 240 51’ , see page 127, 193.

10.

Kethu: in Aries = 240 51’ , see page 127.

52


B: HOUSES Now you have compiled the signs and you will continue with the houses, but first let us Review their meaning; on page 155 you will find all 12 listed. Turn to page 70 (or 2 on the print-out). From left to right you observe: Planet-Sign-Position-Star-House. You want to read the houses so start with the Sun. (Following our sample) 1

Sun: in 1st house, see page 129.

2

Moon: in 11th house, see page 130.

3

Mercury: in 12th house, se page 132.

4

Venus: in 1st house, see page 134.

5

Mars: in 10th house, see page 131.

6

Jupiter: in 3rd house, see page 133.

7

Saturn: in 8th house, see page 136.

8

Rahu: in 8th house, see page 137.

9

Kethu: in 4th house, see page 137.

Then read the text part on pages 159-163 for explanations and details see pages 164-168. You will get an insight to the specifics of planets and their performance as house-rulers Longevity and its solution can be explored in the text portion on page 159-163. For more details you also have to study the following section about planets owning houses and their temporary position in the Rasi or Natal chart. First study the natural ownership of the planets on page 154. You should then proceed to collect data on planets ruling houses being placed in temporary houses according to the traditional Hindu interpretation system. C HOUSE LORDS (House Rulers) On page 169. You will find them itemized. Now proceed to collect data for our interpretation of the Birth Chart. Turn to page 3 in the computer print-out and page 71— Birth Chart or Rasi.

53


HOUS 1 Now begin looking at the 1st house on page 71, the top house of the North Indian horoscope in our example Pisces is rising or ascending. By comparing with page 117 we find that Jupiter rules Pisces and that Jupiter in the Birth Chart (Rasi) is located in House 3 on page 71. (page 3 in the print-out). From there proceed to page 169 to read the text under the 3rd house and do not forget to make your notes again for the first house. HOUSE 2 Now turn to page 3 in the print-out and page 71, again and look at House 2- Aries. On page 117 we find that Aries is ruled by Mars and we return to page 71 (page 3 in the print-out) to locate Mars. We will find that the planet is in the 10th house. Now we should go to page 171 for Lord of the 2nd house being in the 10th house and so on. HOUSE 3 = Taurus = Venus Ruler or Lord. Venus is placed in the 1st house, see page 171 under 1st. HOUSE 4 = Gemini = Mercury Ruler. Mercury is placed in the 12th house, see page 173. HOUSE 5 = Cancer = Moon Ruler. Moon is placed in the 11th house, see page 175. HOUSE 6 = Leo = Sun Ruler. Sun is placed in the 1st house, see page 176. HOUSE 7 = Virgo = Mercury Ruler. Mercury is placed in the 12st house, see page 179. HOUSE 8 = Libra = Venus Ruler. Venus is placed in the 1st house, see page 179. HOUSE 9 = Scorpio = Mars Ruler. Mars is placed in the 10th house, see page 181. HOUSE 10 = Sagittarius = Jupiter Ruler. Jupiter is placed in the 3rd house, see page 181. HOUSE 11 = Capricorn = Saturn Ruler. Saturn is placed in the 8th house, see page 183. HOUSE 12 = Aquarius = Saturn Ruler. Saturn is placed in the 8th house, see page 185. RAHU (North Node of the Moon) Is in sign Sagittarius, see page 185-187, 196 And in house 10, see page 191. KETHU (South Node of the Moon)

54


Is in sign Gemini, see page 185-187, 196 Is in house 4, see page 189. YOGAS Yoga means a combination of planets that has a disposition to mar or improve the horoscope. It is a union of planets and their forces into the nature of the individual and his character. For further information please see page 199. Now we will discuss some basic yogas that appear in the sample horoscope. Start by studying the text on page 199 then follow our procedure on page 200, where we find certain requirements for Wealth Yogas in the table. Please read carefully here. As we do not find any planets qualifying the requirements, we turn to page 201. Now we look into Daridra Yogas (poverty combinations), No 15 fits the description: A combination of Lords of the 3rd house and the 6th house. You should make a note of this. Go further down on page 201 and study Rasi Parivartan Yoga. Exchange of house lordships can cause this yoga. Observe in the Rasi or Natal Chart that Venus is in Pisces and Jupiter is in Taurus, a so-called mutual exchange of house lords of the 1st and 3rd house. Since it involves the malefic 3rd house, the yoga is termed Dainya Yoga, which causes ups and downs and struggles in life during these Dasas (time cycles) etc. Turn to page 202. Here we find the Sunapha Yoga, which fits in our case with the qualification-Venus is in the 2nd house to the Moon (Chandra). Please make a note of it. On page 202 you will find Anapa Yoga. The requirements fit the planet Mars in our example, since he is in the 12th house to the Moon (Chandra). Durudhara Yoga. Our sample fits this description also as there are planets on both sides of the Moon. The following yoga Kendrum Yoga does not fit our sample. Turn to page 203 and Chandra Mangal Yoga, which does not fit our sample either. Go further down to Amala Yoga, which fits our example, since Mars is a benefic for Pisces Rising Sign (Lagna, Ascendant) and he is in the 10th house to Rising Sign. –The yoga is effective. Turn to page 204 and read under Papa Vasi Yoga (please see under heading Shubha Vasi Yoga). We find Mercury in the 12th house to the Sun-Accordingly this yoga is effective. Continue to page 205. Here we find that Venus is exalted in Pisces in our sample and complies with the requirement for a Malavya Yoga, since Venus is also in a Kendra (Angular House) = 1st house, this yoga is effective. Make a note of it. Look at No. 5, Sasa Yoga, on page 205. This yoga is also in gear, since Saturn is in Libra exalted, but only in a malefic house, the 8th, so he does not enjoy full power in Dasa (time period). Turn to page 207. Read under No. 4, Neechabhhannga Raja Yoga. The Moon (Chandra) is debilitated in Capricorn. Capricorn’s Ruler Saturn in Libra the 10th house. Count from the Moon and Mars who.

is exalted in Capricorn. Capricorn is the 10th house from the Rising Sign. This cancels the Moon´s debilitation. –Neechabhanga Raja YogaStudy the intereffect of these yogas, since only if they are in auspicious houses they will give a good effect during the Dasa (time cycle period). RESULTS OF THE DASAS AND THE DASA PLANETS HOUSE POSITION IN THE CHART The Hindus take the exact position of the Moon at birth. They find out which constellation (Moon Star, Lunar Mansion, Nakshatra) the Moon was in and the planet that governs that star. Then they divide the lifespan, in Kali Yoga (Iron Age, occurring now), 120 years into a certain order given by the sages of the Vedic past. He order is always the following, no matter where your Birth Moon appears;

1.

Kethu

= 7

3.

Sun

= 6 Years

5.

Mars

7.

ƒ

Jupiter = 16 Years

9.

Mercury = 17 Years

Years

2. ϒ

4 6. 8.

↔ ♣

Venus =

20 Years

Moon =

10 Years

Rahu = 18 Years Saturn =

19 Years

= Total of 120 Years

The Hindus call the periods Dasa = main period, Bhukti (or Antradasa) = 1st sub period, Antara = 2nd sub period, Shookshma = 3rd period.

These time cycles always follow the same pattern and order. The best use of these cycles is found when used as progressions of the planets, instead of observing all the planets like in tropical astrology. The Hindus observe the balance of years under the planet that rules the Birth Star, where the Moon was at birth and then continue the cycles according to the pattern: Kethu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury.

This also accounts for the understanding of past lives, since the idea is that an individual always continues on his Karma from one life to the other without change. The idiom is based on the principle that the Moon represents the personality and emotions while the Rising Sign represents body appearance and character. For more detailed explanations on personality, emotions, body appearance and character one has to take Sign Lord, Star Lord and Sub Lords in consideration. Every Hindu astrologer knows that the Moon at conception and gestation progresses to become the Rising Sign at birth and vice versa. The old initiates of India knew the secret 58


that the present Life Rising Sign represents the Past Life Moon position and vice versa. They are interchangeable in other words from lifetime to the next incarnation. In our sample the Moon is in the sign of Capricorn at 30 37’ of longitude in the fixed star of #21 Uttarashada, see page 17. If you take this value 30 20’ in Capricorn, an earth sign, and go to the table on page 103 you can see that the balance is 3 years, o months, o days in a Sun Star. The Sun rules the first house. Look at the left of Table I over Dasa and you will see degrees of longitudes of the Moon, then go down to 30 20’ and look to the right in the 2nd column saying Vrishabha (Taurus), Kanya (Virgo) and Makara (Capricorn) at the top = “earth signs”. Now focus in the 3 digits and identify 3 years, 0 months and 0 days. Further up to the left in the column you will find the ruler to be the Sun. Now since you started out with 30 37’ longitude, you will have to subtract 17 minutes to come to the right day, month and year that is the balance at the time of birth. Now go to Table II and look in the left column, under the heading Min. and go down until you find 17’. Now look in the third column, under the Sun, and you will read 1 month and 16 days Let us summarize the table values. Moon (Chandra) 30 37’ in Capricorn (Makara) at birth equals: 3 20’ = 3 y, 0 m. 0 d. + 17’ = 1m. 16 d 3 37’ = 3 y, 1 m. 16 d. Now add this to the person´s birth date and we have the extent of the first Dasa under the Sun .Born March 29, 1954

The next Dasa will Be of the Moon for 10 Years Rahu 18 Years Juoiter 16 “ Saturn 19 “ Mercury 17 “

After making your notes on the planets in signs and houses and their various yogas you will now have to summarize and synthesize all of the above effects into the different time cycles (Dasas) that an individual is going through in a lifetime. The Dasas will now be interpreted in the light of astrological qualities of a particular planet and his nine sub-cycles, the Bhuktis, as far as ruler ship over certain houses is concerned. Go to page 87 – 90. In our sample we find from the computer print-out that the first Dasa is under the Sun 1954 3-29 2nd Moon 1957 3-13 3rd Mars 1967 3-13 4th Rahu 1974 to 5th Jupiter 1992 to 6th Saturn 2008 to 7th Mercury 20027 to 8th Kethu 2044 to 2051 9th Venus for 20 years – 2071 On page 208 the Sun is given and in our case with Sun in a close conjunction to the Rising Cusp, still placed in the 12th house without strength from the sign, star or the sub-lord, is then to be considered detrimental to the overall effect of the Sun. The Sun is subsequently a weak ruler of the 6th house, which you can read about on page 214. Since the ruler is not well placed, you can now summarize in your mind the different impressions you have collected and contemplate on their meaning before you make your final decision about the effect of this time cycle (Dasa) of the Sun. The next Dasa is of the Moon from our sample person’s 3rd year to his 13th year. The Moon is in debilitation, but with a double Neechabhanga Raja Yoga the debilitation is cancelled and since the Moon is a benefic for Pisces Rising Sign it makes the Moon strong in the 3rd house. See page 209 and further a well-placed Moon on page 113. (5th). From his 13th year up to his 20th year this person is under the influence of the planet Mars (kuja). When we examine Mars we find that it is a great benefic for Pisces Rising and that Mars gets exalted in the 10th house. Mars also enjoys a number of yogas that improves the horoscope, so we will classify Mars as a strong planet that is well placed in the 10th house. See page 209 and 213, 215 since Mars rules the 2nd and 9th house. After the influence of Mars for 7 years the person is going to be under the influence of Rahu (the North Node of the Moon) for 18 years, from his 20th year to his 38th year. We will now discuss Rahu (the North Node). The Nodes do not own any house in the zodiac, but give effect due to conjunctions or due to position of the Lord of the house they are in and also due to the Ruler of the Fixed Star they are in. Many systems are in practice, but not always convincing and that is why we will adhere to the proven ones. We find that Rahu is in the sign of Sagittarius (Dhanus) in the 10th house in a Sun star strongly opposed by Uranus, squared by Venus and conjunct the Moon. Because of the mixture of good and bad aspects, the position of Rahu is strong during certain sub-cycles of

60


Mars (Kuja), Jupiter (Guru) and Moon (Chandra), but weak in the other sub-cycles, see page 215. The house position of Jupiter (Guru) in the 3rd house and the Star Ruler Sun (Ravi) in the 1st house are guiding houses on pages 212 – 213. From his 38th year to his 54th year this person is under the influence of Jupiter (Guru) and we will now discuss his Jupiter Dasa (time cycle). Jupiter in the sign of Taurus owns the 1st and 10th house and is a benefic for Pisces Rising. Jupiter enjoys good aspects from Venus and the Sun. He has a number of good yogas so his final value will be a strong planet, see page 210 and the owner of good houses, see page 212 (1st) and page 215 (10th) house. From his 54th year to his 73rd year this person is under the influence of Saturn for 19 years. Saturn (Sani) is in Libra and owns houses 11 and 12 in the Birth Chart, one benefic and one malefic house. Saturn is exalted but for Pisces Rising Saturn is a natural malefic. In our case though he has Raja Yoga and changes his Qualities in the temporary chart to a better constitution. However, during certain sub-periods considerable difficulties and losses will be experienced; specifically under Mercury (Budha), Venus (Sukra), Sun (Ravi) and Rahu subcycles. For results look at page 210 Saturn is strong and Ruler of Houses 11 – 12 at pages 215 – 216. As supposedly the last Dasa in this man´s life, he will experience Mercury for 17 years at the most from 73 years to 90 years of age. So with Saturn in the 8th house this man will be long lived provided he applies the formulas for vitality in his daily life. But the body will grow very old anyhow. Mercury (Budha) in the sign of Aquarius and owner of the 4th and 7th house is a malefic for Pisces Rising Sign. Mercury in the 12th is all together a bad combination so with aspects from Mars, Saturn and Uranus his evil propensities will not be a 100% active, but still Mercury is a weak planet, see page 209 and owner of the 4th house, page 213 and owner of the 7th house, page 2124. The extent of the man´s life is to be judged from the 2nd and the 8th house and knowing Saturn to be strong we find that such Bhukties as Mercury – Sun or Mercury – Moon will cause the end of his life around 80 – 83 years. This has been a brief summary of the combined influences of the Natal Chart (Rasi) and in brief terms we have examined this chart with the help of the Dasa system. For the more professional astrologer further studies can be done in my manual on Vedic astrology. VARGAS THE VARGAS AND THEIR INTERPRETATION HORA ½ Turn to page 2 on the computer print-out. At the bottom of the page you will find the first varga, the Hora – the Wealth/Income Chart – and on page 28 – 31 you will find details on its interpretation and the references to odd and even signs that starts running from Aries, Gemini, Leo being odd; and Taurus, Cancer, Virgo being even in other words every other sign starting with Aries.

CHAPTER 7 HINDU ASTROLOGY: BASIC PRINCIPLES ON PLANETS IN STARS, SIGNS, HOUSES AND THEIR LORDSHIP.

63


HINDU ASTROLOGY: BASIC PRINCIPLES ON PLANETS IN STARS, SIGNS, HOUSES AND THEIR LORDSHIP On the following pages you will find the abbreviated astrological interpretation for the planets in the signs and the houses of the Sidereal Zodiac. Then follows a short general discussion of each of the 12 Rising Signs (Lagnas, Ascendants). The statements are true unless other planets by aspecting or conjunction to the planet change the basic meaning. More than one planet in a sign or a house modifies the result of the foresaid in either a malefic or benefic way depending on their astrological values and planetary powers and house-ownership. The combinations can give rise to yogas (extra powerful characteristics) to certain houses and considerably improve the overall value of the horoscope during the main planetary cycles – Dasa etc.

Note 1: Rahu and Kethu are shadowy planets and generally give the results or effects of the Lord of the sign in which they are placed or of the planet with which they are in conjunction. The rasi-wise effects of Rahu and Kethu should not, therefore, always be accepted as gospel truth. Note 2: The above are general effects of planets in different signs. The results are modified according to their position with reference to Lagna, and other influences on the planets by aspects of other planets or by conjunction etc. GENERAL EFFECTS OF PLANETS IN DIFFERENT HOUSE (BHAVA) RAVI ′ SUN First: Very particular about his self respect, short-tempered, suffers from bilious and windy troubles, emotional, lives in foreign lands, thin body, broad forehead, courageous, wealth unstable, little hair on the head.

Experience has shown that this is not true. Actually, if a malefic planet in any bhava comes in association with Guru, he gives good results at the cost of Guru´s good qualities, Guru thus gives evil results only when he is in association with a malefic planet or owns evil houses in any particular horoscope. We shall discuss this matter further in a later lesson.

Note: Above are described the general effects of planets in different bhavas (houses) according to the natural significations and characteristics of the planets and the houses (bhavas) . These effects are likely to be modified in different birth charts in accordance with the rising sign i.e. lagna and the sign in which a planet is posited. The lordship of houses of the planets will also have its influence. For example, if Mesha is lagna and Guru is in the fourth house, he will be in Kataka rasi which is the exaltation sign of Guru. But if Thula is lagna fourth house will fall in Makara rasi and Guru will be in his sign of debilitation (neecha rasi). In Mesha Guru is lord of ninth house, an auspicious house, so his presence in fourth will give very auspicious results in regard to what Guru signifies what the fourth house signifies and what the ninth house signifies. In Thula lagna Guru will give bit results because not only he will be in his sign of debilitation but because he would be lord of the 3rd and 12th house – two inauspicious houses. In this manner the results have to be assessed from the position of a planet in a particular house – but weight has also to be given to the natural significations as described in this lesson in coming to a final conclusion. EFFECTS OF RISING SIGNS AND JANMA RASIS Rising sign means the Ascendant or Lagna. Our zodiac is constantly moving and all the twelve signs get an opportunity to rise or become lagna in the 24 hours comprising a day. Generally the duration of one lagna is two hours. Janma Rasi means the rasi or sign in which Chandra is posited at the time of birth. Janma Rasi is also called Chandra Lagna and is as important as the Lagna in the horoscope. Therefore, the effects of the sign in which Lagna or the Chandra Lagna falls will almost be the same, and are not being given separately. MESHA Persons born under this sign that is, native of Mesha Lagna or whose Janma Rasi is Mesha are of middle stature. They possess a lean and muscular body. They are neither stout nor thick. Their complexion is rough and they have a fairly long neck and face. They may have bushy eyebrows and have a sharp sight. As Kuja is the planet of passion and aggressiveness, and rules this sign the Mesha Lagna natives will be active and ambitious. They are bold and impulsive. If there is bad influence on the lagna they might become rash and aggressive. If there are good influences on lagna, the natives become confident, courageous, enterprising with high aims and also liberal. Mesha Lagna natives desire to be at the head of all affairs and they are inclined to act according to their own judgment. As Mesha is the positive sign of Kuja (the other sign owned by Kuja viz. Vrischika is his negative sign), it gives determination and force of character. The natives of this lagna act with self-confidence. They have much executive ability and uncompromising spirit. Mesha is a movable (Chara) sign; they are capable of making changes quite often. As it is a fiery sign, they are very aggressive and their desire is always to

78


implement their ideas as quickly as possible. Bad influences make the native quarrelsome and obstinate. Mesha natives are over-optimistic and they like to take up fresh ventures before they have finished the one in hand. Generally Mesha Lagna people because of their impulsiveness and changeable moods are not capable of amassing wealth. Mesha Lagna natives are good lovers and have a charm which attracts the opposite sex. If there are bad influences on the lagna the native (males or females) become jealous, very passionate and they go astray. Mesha Lagna people shine in professions of martial nature like police or army. They can become good surgeons, chemists, officers of law, mechanics, engineers (particularly electrical engineering), wrestlers etc. VRISHABHA Vrishabha Lagna people (that is people whose lagna is Vrishabha or in whose birth chart Chandra is in Vrishabha) will be of medium stature and plump body. Their forehead would be broad, neck thick and stout, eyes bright, hair dark, and complexion clear. They will be solidly built. With big shoulders and muscles well developed. Vrishabha is a fixed and earthy sign. Vrishabha Lagna people have, therefore great endurance and patience. But when provoked, they become angry and vicious like a bull (the pictorial symbol allotted to this sign is a bull with horns) they are slow and steady, plodding and persevering, patient and persistent. They are conservative. They do not waste their energy. They have a strong will. They do not act in an impulsive manner. They wait for the opportunity to come and then take full advantage of it. If there are bad influences on the Lagna, they become lazy and self-indulgent. The natives of this lagna are fond of good food and are very much after money and other worldly possessions. They are ambitious and cheerful. They are also fond of enjoyment as the owner of it is Sukra. Sukra gives wealth. So Vrishabha Lagna people (if the horoscope is otherwise not weak) are fortunate and are favorites of Goddess Lakshmi. The natives of this lagna are sexy but they are steadfast in the love. Bad influences may make them take interest in women other than their own wife. They are fond of music, arts, cinema, drama etc., as Sukra is the Lord of the sign. They generally enjoy good health but if they fall ill, recovery in their case is slow. They accumulate and hoard money and are very cautious in spending. They never take risks in money matters. As Sukra is the Lord of this signs Vrishabha Lagna people take up the trade of luxury goods, cosmetics, scents, jewelers and gems. They can also become agriculturists and farmers, as this

79


is an earthy sign. They can become good actors or actresses or musicians, songsters, film producers, owners of theatres etc. They are good husband or wives and their domestic life is stable and happy. They are generally attached to their native place.

MITHUNA Mithuna Lagna or when Chandra is in Mithuna in the birth chart. Mithuna Lagna natives are tall, and upright and have a straight body, the hands being long. Complexion is moderate, fair or dark. The eyes look sharp and active, the nose is long. Mithuna is an airy sign. So persons with this lagna live mostly in the mind. They are carefree and joyous. Their mind is positive and strong. They are versatile, restless and like changes very often – even if they do not like it they still get changes. Budha is the Lord of this sign. So one is inclined to be a good reader and is fond of writing. Mithuna Lagna native has the capacity to adapt himself to any circumstances. Mithuna is a dual or common sign. This makes the natives of this lagna travel frequently. They are of two minds always and are, therefore, not able to take decisions quickly. Because of the dual nature of the sign, the natives are able to follow more than one occupation at a time. Their faults are mainly because of the duality in their nature which gives them fickle mindedness and inability to finish their work. In spite of these faults they have intellectual qualities. They can understand, analyze and quickly grasp things. They have good retentive power and reproduction ability. They are curious to know new things. They can become good detectives, research scholars, editors, journalists, commercials, travelers, accountants, lecturers, solicitors, professors, businessmen, secretaries, personal assistants, brokers, mathematicians, and advertisers. However, persons of this lagna do well then they work under somebody. They are not successful when they are the bosses. They are good husband, but they might become intolerable if their married partners come in their way for love of variety and change. KATAKA Kataka Lagna or when Chandra is in Kataka. Kataka Lagna persons have a heavy body, slender limbs and powerful claws. The upper portion of their body is generally large. In later age they get a prominent abdomen. They walk with a rolling gait. Their stature is generally short. As the Lord of this sign is Chandra who wanes and waxes, the natives have a remarkable changeable life unless the Lagna or Moon has influence of Sani or if Chandra is placed in a fixed sign. Sani´s influence makes them less changeful. Like the nature of Chandra their lives are full of tides and ebbs (ups and downs). Their imagination is fertile, but they are often emotional and over-sensitive and also sympathetic. Because of sensitiveness, there is a high degree of nervous irritability in their nature. They are timid at one time and courageous at

80


other time. In public life, they are generally successful and are able to achieve honors and wealth. They get angry suddenly but their anger disappears soon. Kataka Lagna persons are fond of home and family comforts. They have a very good memory and when they get into old age they take pleasure in relating even unimportant events of their life to their grand children because they are able to remember the minute details of the past events.

The ladies with this lagna are discreet and independent in many ways, but they are not easy to cope with because of their changing ideas and moods. Kataka Lagna people generally prosper in the latter part of their life. They also get inheritances but never without difficulties or obstructions. Natives of this sign are fond of traveling as Kataka is a movable (Chara) sign. They are steadfast in their life but because Sani makes the house of his partner, these persons generally have to face an unhappy married life unless there are good influences on the Seventh House or the Lord of the Seventh House. Kataka Lagna people very often miss the bus as they take a long time in coming to a decision. Kataka Lagna natives love money and like to hoard money. Many of them are of a miserly nature. They are all prone to digestive and ling troubles and also hysteria, nervous debility etc. The professions suited for these persons are Govt service, commercial career, and business in liquids, sea products, jeweler, and restaurants. They can be good sailors, sea captains, and explorers. As Guru is exalted in this sign they can also become judges or ministers. SIMHA Simha Lagna or when Chandra is in Simha rasi in the birth chart. One born with Simha Lagna has well developed bodes and broad forehead. He is of moderate stature, well built and muscular. His appearance is dignified, imposing and commanding; as this rasi is owned by Ravi signification of royalty and pictorial symbol of this rasi is a lion. The above characteristics will be striking if Ravi is also posited in Simha in the birth chart. Persons born in this sign are generally (that is when there is no bad influence on the lagna) noble, large-hearted, magnanimous and generous. They are helpful to mankind. They have great faith in friends and relatives. They become the head of organizations with which they are connected. If they are in Government or any commercial organization, they attain high positions there, they do not talk much. They are fair in their views and want to be treated justly. They also deal with others in the same manner. As Simha is a fiery sign, it gives authority, ambition and brilliance, also a boasting nature. Natives of this lagna get honors and respect. They are kind and loyal. They like pomp and show.

81


As Shima is a fixed sign, the natives may be obstinate and firm in their thinking and attitudes. When they get angry they roar like lions, but their anger is short lived. They have splendid constititution and recover early from illnesses. They are spendthrifts, but if their financial position is not good they have the capacity to face hard times. They have also a liking for gambling and speculation. Profession most suited to them is to be a leader of political parties, ministership, Government service, jeweler, dealership in precious metals. Simha Lagna native tries to dominate his household and there will be peace only if all accepts his authority. Very often their married life is not happy as the opposite sign which belongs to his partner in life is owned by Sani an enemy of Ravi the Lord of Simha rasi. KANYA Kanya Lagna or when Chandra is posited in Kanya rasi in the birth chart. Natives of Kanya Lagna are tall with a slender body. Their eye-brows are curved with hair growth. Their voice is very often thin and sometimes even shrill. They walk quickly and they seldom have a potbelly. As they are very active, they often appear younger than their actual age. Budha who is an inconstant planet rules Kanya. So Kanya Lagna persons are fond of quick changes. However, they are very conscientious and very capable of handling even unfavorable situations. They are quick like the fast moving Budha. They are thorough and methodical, practical and discriminative. But they lack will power. Kanya is an earthly sign, so the natives will have desire to save money. They have sound commercial instinct and they want to grow rich as quickly as possible. The professions most suited to them are doctor, auditor, journalist, teacher, commercial agent, accountant, lawyer, statistician, etc. In spite of the fact that Kanya Lagna natives are changeable in nature, their married life is not unhappy but it is seen that the Kanya Lagna natives take a long time in taking a decision about their marriage. Some of them remain bachelors for a long time, on this account. Some remain unmarried for life. Akanya Lagna wife wants to treat her married life as a legal partnership. She does not find the sex-life very attractive and would like her husband not to be very demanding in this respect. Our own experience has shown that while KanyaLagna husbands are not so critical or dominating in their homes, Kanya Lagna wives criticize their husbands – sometimes to such an extent that their discussions take the shape of a quarrel. Of course such things happen mostly when lagna gets evil influence of Sani, Kuja, Rahu or Kethu. THULA Thula Lagna or when Chandra is in Thula rasi in the birth chart.

82


The natives of this lagna grow tall with age and have a well-proportioned body. These limbs are slender but strong. The appearance is graceful and attractive. They get bold in adult age. The nose is like a parrot. The natives of this lagna are levelheaded. They weigh the merits and demerits of a subject and then express their opinion. They are constructive critics. The pictorial symbol of their sign is “balance�. The Thula Lagna natives are, therefore, reasonable and just. They are also modest and gentle. They love happy and harmonious life. They want peace even if they are losers in transaction. If they lose their temper, they soon subside. Thula is a movable sign, therefore Thula Lagna persons like changes in their life and environments. They are popular and have a spirit of sacrifice in them. Thula is an airy sign. All airy signs make the natives intellectual. So they have fertile imagination, correct intuition, brilliant intellect, refinement and pleasant nature. Thula Lagna natives have an unassuming nature and humanitarian instincts. They lean more to the spiritual side than to the pure physical one. Many illustrious saints of the world were born with Thula Lagna. Thula Lagna natives love peace all right but they cannot be bullied. You cannot get anything out from them by threatening them by force. On their side they are against such things. They are fond of good dress and other comforts as Sukra is the Lord of this sign. Thula Lagna persons are most suited for business and law. They can also become good actors, musicians, architects, salesmen and story-writers. As Thula Lagna people love peace, their domestic and married life is generally happy. They love their home, family and their property. Thula Lagna girls are tactful, intelligent and wise. They love and adore their partners. VRISCHIKA Vrischika Lagna or Chandra in Vrischika rasi in the birth chart. Vrischika is the negative sign of Kuja and, therefore the persons with Vrischika Lagna will manifest the qualities different from these of Mesha Lagna as Mesha is Kuja´s positive rasi. This is not one of the good signs of the zodiac. Vrischika is pictorially represented as a Scorpio who is venomous? The body of the Vrischika Lagna native is well proportioned. Hands are generally long. The stature is above average. Face is broad with commanding appearance. Such natives generally have a good personality. Vrischika is a fixed sign. As a result the native is a particularly determined individual. He will crush the obstacles before him and move forward. He will fight up to the end even if the battle is a losing one. It is also a watery sign, which gives fertile imagination and sharp intelligence. The native is also emotional. He has remarkable intuitive powers. As a medical man this would help him to diagnose correctly. The native has self-assertion, impulsiveness, courage, resolution,

83


independence, excitement and forcefulness. He has either practical business ability or he is quite reckless. He is unyielding. He is self-made. It is a highly sexed sign. We have seen in our experience several horoscopes of Vrischika Lagna people whose sexual madness is beyond description. In one case we found that in his sexual adventures the native had illicit connections with low caste women working in his home. He also did not spare even his near female relations falling within prohibited category. Such natives have their lagna and seventh house Guru and Sukra badly afflicted. A good Vrischika Lagna native evinces great interest in occult sciences and spiritual experiments. There are good research scholars amongst persons having this lagna. Vrischika Lagna persons have a very harsh tongue, they think of themselves only. They are selfish to the core. They do not hesitate in passing sarcastic remarks. They always have something hidden up in their sleeves-secrets with which to beat or disgrace others. They are revengeful and if they are at any time beaten or injured by somebody in some way or other, they must take revenge even if they have to wait for an opportunity for the whole of their life. They take special pleasure in criticizing others to prove their own superiority. Recently a lady brought to us a horoscope of her husband. His lagna was Vrischika with the Lord of lagna badly placed. We frankly told the lady that her husband must be a very demanding one. Before we could give further reading of the horoscope she showed us her bare skin, which bore blue marks of cane beating. Such are Vrischika Lagna people, if the lagna does not get good influences from planets like Guru. As we have said earlier, they are extremists and when they lose control on themselves, they can go to the farthest limit of depravity. The domestic life of Vrischika Lagna persons can be happy only, if every member of the family is submissive to them. Only their say in all matters should count. They are extravagant in expenditure most of which is on their own comforts and pleasures, thus creating at times difficult situations in the family. The professions most suited to Vrischika Lagna persons are: Chemistry, medicine, insurance, surgery, army, police, butchery, and naval service. They can become very successful detectives. Our intention in describing above the general characteristics of Vrischika Lagna persons should not be interpreted to mean that all natives of this lagna are bad. Our late lamented and a statesman of the highest caliber Rajaji was a Vrischika lagna native but the students will see that he had also many of the qualities of Vrischika Lagna we have described above. DHANUS Dhanus Lagna or Chandra is Dhanus rasi in the birth chart. Guru owns Dhanus and it is Gurus positive sign. The natives of this lagna have a well-proportioned and well-developed body. They are generally tall with a large forehead, high and bushy eyebrows, long nose, bright eyes, graceful look, fair complexion and handsome figure.

84


Dhanus is a fiery sign. The natives are, therefore, bold, courageous and pushful. They are ambitious, greedy and have high aspirations. They are not timid. They face adverse situations with fortitude. They have self-confidence. They are at their best when they have difficulties and obstacles before them. They fiery sign gives them energy, enthusiasm, vigor and vitality. Dhanus is a dual or a common sign. The natives of this lagna are, therefore, unable to take quick decisions. They will be, for quite sometime, considering the pros and cons of the problems before them. As Guru is the Lord of this sign the natives are God fearing and love only truth. They stick to their principles, even though their action is likely to giving unfavorable results. They go in for higher education and are fond of traveling. The Lord of the sign Guru gives them a broad mind, confidence, truth and spiritual uplift. They are very intuitive and their intuition generally proves correct. They are always for justice. If the Lagna is afflicted by evil influences of Sani, Kuja, Rahu or Kethu, the natives become deceptive. They exaggerate their own qualities; they try to show themselves as great men, which they know they are not. They make promises with no intention of keeping them. We know of a Dhanus Lagna native who has the Lord of Lagna in Lagna itself making it very strong but the lagna has evil influence of Sani and Kuja with the result that the native has become a first rate hypocrite. He is the owner of a magazine in which the best of the articles are published with his name as their writer while the writers are some other persons. He makes promises to pay remuneration to the contributors but never pays them a single paisa. Dhanus Lagna persons can get success in Government service, as judges, lawyers, teachers, writers, astrologers, preachers, politicians, ministers, bank employees or as heads or workers of religious institutions. MAKARA Makara Lagna or when Chandra is in Makara rasi in the birth chart. Makara Lagna persons are emaciated and weak and grow slowly. Their body will not be plump or muscular but slender. A native of this lagna grows tall suddenly on becoming young and his constitution improves with age. His nose is long and eyes deep set. The hair is coarse. Makara is an earthly sign, so the Makara Lagna native is economical, prudent, reasonable, and thoughtful and practical minded. He is methodical, slow and steady and patient. He is calculative and businesslike. Makara is also a movable sign. This indicates after giving due consideration to any matter, the Makara Lagna native will come to a quick decision. He will have push and confidence. He has a special organizing capacity and a lot of tolerance. A Makara Lagna native is generally not an optimistic person. He will have to accept the reality of a thing when the outcome is known.

85


Makara is owned by Sani. If the Lagna does not have evil influences, the native will be honest, sincere and reliable. If the lagna is afflicted, he will be dishonest, selfish, greedy, and miserly and may even become a criminal. Further with good influences on lagna, the native will never be idle. On the other hand, he will be very hardworking and always keep himself busy. With bad influences on lagna, the native will become lazy and a pessimist to the extreme. Makara Lagna natives are conservative by nature. They will not care for difficulties, handicaps and hindrances, which will always be there for such people. They will continue to work until they bring their work or task entrusted to them to a successful conclusion. They are hard workers and are able to consolidate their position sooner or later. Professions most suitable to Makara Lagna people are: Service in business concerns, municipality, or Government. They are also very well suited to work in mines and oil concerns. They can also become engineers, scientists or research scholars. Makara Lagna people generally marry late. They are good husbands and fathers of many children, but they do not make a show of their affection. On the other hand, they would enforce discipline in the house as they do in the place of their work. KUMBHA Kumbha Lagna or when Chandra is in Kumbha rasi in the birth chart. The persons born in this lagna are generally tall with full stature. They are strong. Their complexion is fair and appearance handsome. Kumbha is an airy sign. So the Kumbha Lagna natives are intelligent. They are not carried away by flattery. They are good character readers. They act after very carefully considering the pros and cons of everything. They are slow in understanding things but once they get at them, they can handle them with ease and confidence. They have a broad outlook and human understanding. They are unselfish, human and imperial. They mow in a select society. They are reserved in nature and are great moralists. They have wonderful intuitional capacity. As Kumbha is a fixed sign, the natives stick to their principles. They work persistently in all their undertakings. They are very strong in their likes and dislikes. They have an inclination towards learning physic subjects. They develop intuition and inspiration. They prefer secluded places and can go in deep meditation. Many of the saints of our times and great men who have or had sacrificed their lives for the good humanity, where born in Kumbha Lagna. Kumbha Lagna persons are at home in every profession. They are good in Government service, in commercial institutions, as engineers or research scholars. On account of their introduction capacity they become very proficient astrologers. They shine best as heads of religious or charitable institutions. The married life of Kumbha Lagna native is happy only if their partner is as intelligent as they are. They are steadfast in their affection, but they do not like to display it.

86


MEENA Meena Lagna or when Chandra is posited in Meena rasi in the birth chart. Meena Lagna persons are generally short in stature but they are plump with short hands and feet. Meena is a watery sign ruled by Guru. The natives are, therefore, by nature philosophical, restless, full of imagination, and fond of romantic life. They are honest, humane and helpful. They always have “forget and forgive” spirit. On account of their being over liberal and overgenerous, they often hamper their own progress. They are very happy when they can spend their money to help others and on charitable causes. Meena is dual sign, so the natives are not steady. They may easily change from, one profession to another. Meena Lagna people can be good occultists and traders dealing in liquids. They can also succeed in import and export business but they are best suited for charitable institutions. They can become good actors and musicians as Sukra is exalted in this sign. They can also succeed as ministers and physicians. They are also successful in the navy, in shipping organizations, hospitals or sanatoriums. HOUSE (BHAVAS) AND THEIR SIGNIFICATIONS In a horoscope house 1, 4, 7 and 10 are called Kendras Panapharas (cadent) and 3, 6, 9, 12 as Apoklimas (succeedent). As 5th and 9th are trines, thery should not be treated as panaphar and apoklima respectively. Houses 3, 6, 10 and 11 are Upachayas which means houses of growth. The Lagna (1st house) is treated as Kendra as well as a Trikona. Planets when posited in Kendras are strongest-next in order are those posited in Trikonas, Panpharas and Apoklimas. It is believed that all planets do well when they are in Upachaya houses. There is another school of thought that natural benefices are not so good (rather harmful in these houses) while natural malefic give good results when posited there. We do not agree with the latter view and shall discuss this matter in greater detail at a later stage. Houses 3, 6, 8, 12 are bad houses (Dusthanas). Any planet posited in these houses destroys the signification of the house, which he owns. Lords of these houses do harm to the significations of the houses where they are posited. However, lords of dusthans if posited in dusthans give good results. The principle behind this is that Lord of a Dusthana does well when he is rendered weak. A planet becomes weak when he is placed in Dusthana. SIGNIFICATION’S OF THE HOUSES First House (Lagna) Physical stature, color, form and shape, constitution, health, vitality and vigor, natural dispositions and tendencies, personality and struggle for life, honor, dignity, prosperity, general well being, head, upper part of the face, virtues, longevity, start in life and an idea about the general structure of life.

The 8th and 3rd are also called houses of longevity and 2nd an 7th as houses of death or Maraksthanas. EFFECTS DUE TO OWNERSHIP OF VARIOUS HOUSES BY PLANETS After giving the students a general idea of the characteristics of rasis and planets, guiding them how a horoscope is cast, how the positions and strength etc.. of planets are ascertained, what is the signification of each house, how the Vimshotari Dasa major periods and minor periods are worked out, we come to the productive part of astrology from Lesson XIV. The present lesson is one of the most important ones from the predictive point of view and for judgement of a horoscope. Because it is the ownership of a planet of a good or bad house which modifies to a large extent the effects of his natural good or malefic nature. Natural benefices like Guru, Sukra, Chandra, Budha become malefic and even killers (marakas) for certain ascendants on account of their ownership of bad houses while malefic like Sani and Kuja become benefices par excellence by virtue of the ownership of good or auspicious houses. According to Parashari system (that is according to principles of Hindu Astrology laid down by Maharishi Parashar) the lords of trines (trikonas) are always auspicious. The trikonas are 5th and 9th houses and also 1st, which is a trikone as well as a kendra house. When benefices own kendras they are said to become evil. When malefic become lords of kendras (angles or quadrants), they are believed to invariable become well. The lords of 2nd and 12th houses give good results if they are in conjunction with favorable planets. This is what the Parashari principle says but in actual experience and working we do not consider the lord of 12th giving good results, 12th house is one of the bad houses and its lord should be treated as such. This is our advice based on practical experience. The lord of 8th if he happens to be lord of 1st or lagna becomes good. We will find this position only when the lagna is Mesha or Thula. When Mesha will be first house, the 8th house will fall in Vrishika Rasi. So Kuja, the lord of 1st and 8th for Mesha Lagna will give good results spite of his lordship over the 8th house. In Thula Lagna Sukra will be lord of 1st and the 8th houses. Here the 8th house will fall in Vrishabha rasi. When a planet is lord of a kendra as well as a trine he will be a benefic parexellence. In astrological terminology we call such a planet as a yogakaraka planet for that lagna. Rahu and

89


Kethu produce good results when they are in benefic signs that is in the signs of planets who are benefic by lordship for a particular lagna. Another principle is that the good or evil planets (by lordship) become more and more powerful as they are lords of 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th houses; 5th, 9th houses; 3rd, 6th, 11th houses. In other words, 4th is stronger than 1st, 7th stronger than 4th and 10th more than 7th. Similarly 9th is an even stronger trine house than the 5th, and amongst Upchaya houses 11th is the strongest and the 3rd the least powerful. These are three separate groups. Then another Parashari principle is that the lords of 3, 6, 8 and 11 do evil and cause miseries in life. Here with due respects to the principles laid down by the Great Parashara we in actual practice find that the lord of 11th (11th house being the house of gains) gives monetary gains to the native according to its strength and position in the horoscope. Here it is worth mentioning that while the 11th lord has been called evil, nowhere in any standard classical textbook written according to the Parashari system of astrology has the 11th house been called inauspicious. On the other hand, we have invariable found all such books telling us that if the lord of 11th is strong whether he be the natural benefic Sani, he will fetch enormous financial gains to the native in his Mahadasha. Apart from this, the lord of 11th in a horoscope is a very beneficial partner for creating Dhana yogas (wealth giving combinations) With lord of other good houses. So we do not consider the lord of eleventh house as evil. However, except Chandra and Ravi all planets own two houses, so it is possible that the lord of eleventh for a particular lagna may also be lord of an evil house. An easy example is of Mithuna Lagna where the lord of 11th Kuja is also lord of sixth house. As lord of 11th Kuja will give good results when he forms a combination with the lord of another good house such as the lord of second which is the house of wealth (Dhana Bhava) or the lord of 9th (Bhagya house) but being lord of 6th he will also create debts, diseases and enemies. This is how we should fallow these principles. It is said that benefices when they own Kendra, become evil. There are four lagans – Mithuna, Kanya, Dhanus and Meena where we find that two kendras are owned by benefic. In Mithuna lagna, Budha owns the 1st and the 4th, both are kendras but the 1st is trikona also, but Guru owns the 7th and 10th the two kendras. For Kanya, Budha owns 1st and 10th – the first being both Kendra and trikona and 10th only a Kendra and Guru owns 4th and 7th kendras. For Dhanus lagna Guru owns 1st and 4th – first being Kendra and trikona and 4th being only Kendra, and Budha owns 7th and 10th both kendras. For Meena Guru owns 1st and 10th – the first being Kendra and trikona and the 10th being only Kendra, and Budha owns the 4th and 7th – both Kendra’s. According to the strict exponents of the Parashari principles for Mithuna and Kanya Lagnas, Budha has been treated as a neutral planet and Guru an evil one. For Dhanus and Meena Lagnas Guru has been treated as a neutral planet and Budha as an evil one. There is some controversy in this regard. There is a school of thought that benefics as lord of kendras do not become evil but become incapable of giving good results. Our view is that they are not incapable of giving good results in respect of wealth etc., but they do cause ill health and even death if they are posited in bad houses particularly 2nd and 7th which are called markasthans (we will come to this later on in this lesson) or when they are conjoined with such planets, or are aspected by them. We are also of the opinion that if a planet is lord of lagna and also owns a benefic house, he will be good for the native and will not bring any untoward results. The lagna represents the native and the lord of the lagna is always the protector of the native. We are sorry to say that it is contradictions of this nature which put the students of astrology particularly the beginners in confusion. While orthodox or strict followers of the Parashari system at one place say that if the lord of lagna being a natural

90


benefic owns a Kendra he becomes a natural, they do not hesitate in saying that the lord of lagna enhances the good results of a house where he is posited. What we have said about natural benefic holds good also for natural malefic. There is no lagna in which any malefic is owner of two kendras, therefore, when assessing the results of such planets we should attribute both good and bad results to them according to their lordship of a Kendra and an inauspicious house. But when a benefic or malefic is lord of trine and also an evil house, he would predominate in giving good results as lord of the trine. When a planet is lord of a Kendra as well as a trine, he is as we have already said a benefic par excellence or a yogakaraka for that birth chart. By yogakaraka we mean a planet that gives wealth, name, fame and high position. Thus according to us 1,2,4,7,9,10 and 11 are auspicious houses and 3,6,8 and 12 are inauspicious houses or dusthans (bad houses). There is a pecularity about 3,6 and 11. They are also called upchaya houses that are the houses of growth: Amongst them 6th being a dusthan is a weak upchaya house. While the lord of the 3rd and 6th are evil, planets posited in these houses are said to give good results gradually. All planets are said to give good results in the 11th house, but in the 6th upchaya effects may be expected when the house, has the aspect of a benefic otherwise it should be treated as dusthan. Amongst the dusthan 3rd is a mild dusthan, the 8th is the worst. Then come the 6th and the 12th. It is said the lords of dusthanas destroy the effects of the house where they are posited and if the lords of the good house are posited in dusthans i.e. 3,6,8 and 12 they spoil the effects of the houses they own. For example, if the lord of the 4th house is posited in the 8th house. This will spoil the effects of the 4th house and cause domestic unhappiness, obstruction in education, loss of ancestral property and unhappiness from the side of the mother. The lord of the 8th house if posited in the 4th house will spoil the significations of the 4th house and at the same time because he becomes stronger by being posited in a Kendra house, it will enhance the significance of the 8th house. That is while it will give good longevity, other evil significations of the 8th house will increase. It is also mentioned in our standard classical texts that if Chandra and Ravi who are also called luminaries are lord of the 8th house they do not become evil. Our experience and that of many learned is that in practice that is not true. No exception should, therefore, be made in case of Ravi and Chandra. MAKARA OR DEATH INFLICTING PLANETS The 8th house and the 8th, therefore, from i.e. the 3rd house are considered as houses of longevity. As the 12th house to the lagna is known as the house of loss so the 12th house to every house will be the house of loss to it. On this principle 12th to 8th is the 7th house and the 12th to the 3rd is the 2nd houses. Therefore, these houses cause loss to longevity and are called maraksthanas. Planets posited in these houses, those aspected by these planets and lord of these two houses are called maracas or death inflicting planets. There is another class of maraca planets also. They are those, which are posited in the Badhaka (house of obstructions) House, its lord and the planets aspected by them. For a lagna falling in a movable sign, the 11th house is a Badhaka House or Badhakstana, for lagna in a fixed sign the 9th and for lagna in dual sign the 7th house is a Badhakstana. The maraca planets mentioned above cause death in their Mahadasha or Antardasha if according to the assessment of longevity of the native, the Mahadasha or Antardasha falls coincides with the age when the death is likely to occur. The assessment of longevity is a very intricate and complicated process and astrologers with great proficiency in arithmetic and

91


astrology can pinpoint the period of death but it is possible to judge without much difficulty whether a person will be long lived or short lived from the structure of the horoscope. However, we will deal with this subject briefly in a later lesson but a detailed and complete discussion on this subject is beyond the scope of our lessons, which are intended only for beginners. We have said above that lords of 2nd and 7th are maracas also lords of 11th, 9th and 7th who are lords of Badhakathan for lagans in movable, fixed and dual signs respectively. We have also said that they have powers of inflict in their Mahadasha or Antardasha. The second house is also called Dhana Bhava or the house of wealth. The seventh house is also called Jaya Bhava or the house of life partner or marriage. The ninth house is also the house of Bhagya and the 11th house is also of gains. It can be argued why the lords of houses which are given of wealth, which cause marriage, which improve our Bhagya and which give us gains of wealth are maracas. The reply to such an argument is not difficult to give. The lord of the 2nd, 9th or 11th can give gains of wealth and also cause death if the time of death has arrive according to the assessment of the longevity of the native. Have we not seen cases when a person immediately on taking charge of a high position dies suddenly or after winning a large sum in a lottery is so overwhelmed with joy that he dies of shock? According to the principles of astrology the marriage is likely to take place in the Mahadasha or Antardasha of the lords of 2nd or 7th both of whom are maraca planets also. Have we not heard of cases where the brides or bridegrooms are killed soon after marriage as a result of some accident or other causes? So both the events can take place simultaneously during the Mahadasha or Antardasha of such planets. But the person who gains wealth on account of the happy positions of the Lords of 2nd, 9th and 11th, will continue to enjoy it if the time of death has not come according to the assessment of the longevity of the native. Similarly, if the marriage takes place in the Mahadasha and Antardasha of the lords 2nd or 7th, the native/natives will enjoy their married life if further lease of life is promised to them in their birth chart. AUSPICIOUS AND INAUSPICIOUS PLANETS FOR DIFFERENT LAGNAS BY VIRTUE OF THEIR OWNERSHIP OF VARIOUS HOUSES We are taking the liberty of mentioning the auspicious and inauspicious lords of bhavas as given in the book “Hindu Predictive Astrology” by Prof. B.V. Raman, one of the most learned and talented astrologers of our times. He is not only the editor of the world famous “Astrological Magazine” but also author of several standard books on Hindu Astrology, which have won international appreciation and have run into several editions. Prof. Raman calls them, “Key planets for each sign” – in other words, key planets for each lagna. They are described as below in his book referred to above. Mesha Lagna Sani, Budha and Sukra are ill disposed Guru, and Ravi are auspicious. The more combination of Guru and Sani produces no beneficial results. Guru is yoga karaka or the planets producing success. If Sukra becomes a maraca he will not kill the native but planets like Sani will bring about the death of the person. Vrishabha Lagna

92


Sani is the most auspicious and beneficial planet. Guru, Sukra and Chandra are evil planets, Sani alone produces Rajayoga. The native will get death in the periods and sub-periods of Guru, Sukra and Chandra if they get death inflicting powers. Mithuna Lagna Kuja, Guru and Ravi are evil. Sukra alone is most beneficial and in conjunction with Sani in good signs produces an excellent career of much fame. Sukra and Budha when well associated cause Rajayoga (this means that this combination gives name, fame and wealth to the native). Chandra (who is lord of 2nd the maraksthana) does not kill. Here Guru lord of 7th (another marakasthan) becomes a maraca planet and may kill the native when his dasha or antardasha is operating. Kataka Lagna Sukra and Budha are evil. Guru and Kuja give beneficial results. Kuja is Rajayoga karaka. The combination of Guru and Kuja also causes Rajayoga. Ravi though lord of 2nd does not kill Sukra and other inauspicious planets kills the native. Simha Lagna Kuja is the most auspicious planet. The combination of Sukra and Guru does not cause Rajayoga, but the conjunction of Guru and Kuja in favorable houses produces Rajayoga. Sani though lord of 7th does not kill, but Budha (lord of 2nd) and other evil planets inflict death when they get maraca powers. Kanya Lagna Sukra alone is most beneficial. Budha and Sukra when combined together cause Rajayoga. Kuja and Chandra are evil- Ravi does not kill even he becomes a maraca but Sukra, the Chandra and Guru will inflict death when they are possessed of death inflicting power. Thula Lagna Sani alone causes Rajayoga. Guru Ravi and Kuja are inauspicious. Budha and Sani produce good. The conjunction of Chandra and Budha produces Rajayoga. Kuja himself will not kill the person. Guru, Sukra when possessed of maraca powers certainly kill the native. Vrischika Lagna Guru is beneficial, Ravi and Chandra produce Rajayoga. Budha and Sukra are evil, Guru, even if he becomes a maraka (lord of 2nd) does not inflict death. Budha and other evil planets when they get death inflicting powers do not spare the native. Dhanus Lagna Kuja is the best planet and in conjunction with Guru produces much good. Ravi and Kuja also produce good. Sukra is evil. When Ravi and Kuja combine together they produce Rajayoga. Sani (though lord of 2nd) does not bring about death. But Sukra causes death when he becomes a maraka planet. Makara Lagna Sukra is the most powerful planet and in conjunction with Budha produces Rajayoga. Kuja, Guru and Chandra are evil. Kumbha Lagna

93


Sukra alone is auspicious. The combination of Sukra and Kuja causes Rajayoga. Guru and Chandra are evil. Meena Lagna Chandra and Kuja are auspicious. Kuja is most powerful. Kuja with Chandra or Guru causes Rajayoga. Sani, Sukra, Ravi and Budha are evil. Kuja though lord of 2nd does not kill. The above description of the auspicious and inauspicious planets by Prof. Raman is strictly according to the Parashari principles and should be followed by the students subject to what has been stated previously. If they go through the above description, they will find that amongst the evil planets are lords of the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th and 12th and the benefics who are lords of Kendras. Amongst the auspicious or favorable planets are lords of lagans, planets who own trines. Amongst the yoga karaka planets are those who are lords of a trine and a Kendra. It will also be noted from the above description that in most cases lord of 2nd (which is a marakasthan) has been exempted from the power of inflicting death. Our humble view based on experience is that this exemption does not prove true in practice.

94

Tenth: Respected by Government, gains from Government sources like Government service or contracts, fortunate, wealthy, good morals. Eleventh: Famous businessman, very wealthy, famous, conquest over enemies, fortunate. This is an excellent position for the lord of 2nd. This position brings easy gains to the native. Twelfth: Poor, indebted, goes to foreign lands for his earns by undesirable means. LORD OF 3RD BHAVA IF IN First: Low intelligence, loose morals, servant, and cruel, bad relations in family, not rich, quarrelsome. Second: Beggar, poor, short lived but if the lord of 2nd is a natural benefic the results are better. Then natives become fortunate and not poor. Still this is not a beneficial position for the lord of 3rd. Third: Friendly, religious minded, gains from Government and if the lord of 3rd is a natural benefic, then there will be good relations amongst brothers and other near relatives. If he is a natural malefic the relations amongst brothers etc. may not be good. Still it is a good position for the lord of the 3rd as he will be in his own house. Every planet whether he is benefic or malefic gives good results of the house he owns if he is posited there. Fourth: Rebels against parents, greedy, notorious, squanders ancestral wealth, domestic unhappiness. Fifth: Not intelligent, has children, is able to earn enough for his live hood, good relations with brothers. Sixth: Quarrelsome, bad connections with near relatives, helpful to brothers, respected. Seventh: If the lord of 3rd is a benefic the wife will be beautiful and fortunate but if the lord of 3rd is a malefic the wife will be of loose morals and may have illicit connections with any of his younger brother. It is not a good position for the seventh house to have the lord of 3rd posited there.

96


Eight: Troubles from brothers or loss of brothers/sisters bad relations with near relatives, loss of courage, good for longevity as both the 3rd and 8th house are of longevity. Ninth: Prosperity for younger brothers and sisters (because from ninth house the lord of 3rd aspects his own house), bad position for native. If the lord of third is a benefic the native gets help and respect from his brothers and sisters. Tenth: It is stated in the classical texts that this is a good position for the lord of 3rd and makes the native prosperous, respected and fortunate. Our humble view, which we will recommend to the students, is that if the lord of 3rd is in the 10th, the native has put in colossal efforts to make himself prosperous in life. If the structure of the horoscope is otherwise good and there are benefic influences by aspect or conjunction on the 10th house and the lord of 3rd, the native gets brilliant success in his efforts. Eleventh: our ancients again consider this a good position for the lord of the 3rd but our humble view is the same as we have given in respect of the 10th house. The gains will be there but they will not be easy gains. To get them the native will have to put in hard work. In this position there is likelihood of the native getting gains through brothers. Twelfth: Does not like relatives or friends, jealous, goes to foreign lands, strange habits. We have already expressed the view that 3rd house is a dusthan (an inauspicious house) and so is the twelfth. If the lord of a dusthan is posited in another dusthana, he gives good results – actually this disposition is called Vipreet Rajayoga. The principle behind this is that if the lord of a dusthana becomes powerful he does harm to the house he owns but if he becomes weak he gives opposite results (i.e. good results). “Vipreet� means opposite. The lord of dusthana becomes powerful if he is posited in Kendra or trikona or even in 2nd and 11th, which we do not consider as bad houses except that the 2nd and 7th houses are marakasthanas. The lord of dusthana becomes weak if he is posited in any of the dusthanas, or if posited in an auspicious house he is in debilitation or rendered weak by aspect or conjunction of malefic. What we have stated here will apply to the lord of all dusthanas. LORD OF 4TH BHAVA IF IN First: Obedient and loyal to parents, loved by parents particularly mother, improves the position of his family, wealthy, inherits ancestral property, owns land, buildings and conveyances. Second: Gets gains of wealth from mother and from maternal relations, inherits ancestral property, domestic happiness, good in education. A natural malefic if lord of 4th may create troubles in family. Third: Quarrelsome with mother, causes losses to mother, loss of paternal property, not good domestic life. Not a good position for the lord of 4th as the 3rd house being 12th to 4th is a negative house for the 4th house. Fourth: Respected by parents and the Government or king, gains from ancestral property, long lived mother, owner of land, buildings and conveyances, domestic happiness, prospers most in his native land, good morals, peaceful and happy end of life, may get hidden treasures (this may happen if there is good relationship by aspect or conjunction with the lord of 11th).

97


Fifth: Long lived, receives honors from Government, high position in Government, highly educated, intelligent, famous, enjoys ancestral property. Sixth: Accumulates wealth but it may be lost on account of diseases or by enemies, unhappiness from mother, may not get ancestral property, bad character, no peace of mind. Seventh: Gains from father-in-law, conjugal happiness, good education but may get a stepmother. Eight: Unhappiness from mother who is long lived, loss of ancestral property, land, building and conveyances or may not be able to own land, building or conveyances. Not a good position for the lord of the fourth as far as the native is concerned. It also disturbs domestic happiness and peace of mind. Ninth: Learned, remains in good society, religious minded, if in movable sign may have occasion for foreign travel and to acquire wealth, devoted to father and Guru, pilgrimage to holy places. Tenth: Owns lands and buildings, long lived mother, success in professional career, respected, learned, does good deeds if the planet is a natural benefic like Guru and Sukra. If Guru, he will be religious minded and a good and successful lawyer, judge or minister. If Sukra, he will be equally successful, but will be inclined to have pleasure and comforts and association of women for pleasure’s sake. Eleventh: Wealthy, respected, comfortable, happy, gains from mother. Twelfth: May have to live in foreign lands, domestic unhappiness, and loss of ancestral property. If a natural benefic end of life may be peaceful – if a natural malefic, it may be otherwise. LORD OF 5TH BHAVA IF IN First: Good children learned in Shastras, intelligent, thinker, clever. Second: Wealthy, famous, gains from speculation, lottery etc. (For lottery the conjunction of lord of 11th in second or his aspect on the lord of fifth in 2nd is necessary). He has many children, looks after his family and is loved by his wife. Third: Liked by brothers, backbiter, and miser, selfish. This is not a good position as far as the native is concerned as the 3rd house is dusthana (bad house). Fourth: Happy, father and mother long-lived and prosperous, intelligent, minister but few or no children because fourth is 12th to 5th and therefore, a house of loss for the 5th. It gives good results in other respects because the lord of 5th being the lord of trine is posited in a Kendra, which is an auspicious house, and from their aspects the 10th house, the house of profession and honors. Fifth: Happiness from children, clever, intelligent, famous. Here the lord of the 5th is in his own house. Therefore, all good results of the significations of this house may be excepted.

98


Sixth: Enmity or quarrels with his own children or childless, or adopts a child. Seventh: Respected, happiness from children, charitable, good for conjugal life. Eighth: Few children or no children, asthma patient, loss of peace of mind, short-tempered, unhappy. Ninth: Son becomes famous, high officer, minister. He is wealthy, happy, author, famous and brings good name to his family. Tenth: This is an excellent position for the lord of fifth. He becomes wealthy, holds high position in Government or otherwise, gets name and fame but few children. Eleventh: This is also a very good position because an auspicious lord is in an auspicious house and from the 11th house he aspects his own house. When the lord of a house aspects his own house particularly from an auspicious house, the aspect house gets strengthened and gives good results according to its significations. Thus with this disposition the native is wealthy, famous, has children, popular, highly intelligent, author and powerful. Twelfth: Loss of children or childless or adopts a child. This is a bad position because the 12th house is the house of loss for the native ant it is 8th from fifth house. It may be noted here when the lord of a house is in 3rd, 6th , 8th or 12th from his own house, the significations of that house differ. This principle is of great importance and should always be kept in mind. The exceptions to this principle is that when the lord of house is in 3rd, 6th, 8th or 12th from his own house but that house is a auspicious house, the significations of the house will suffer but predominantly good results will be seen, Thus lord of 5th gives good results to the natives if he is in 10th, which is 6th from 5th, as the 10th is a very powerful and auspicious Kendra house. LORD OF SIXTH BHAVA IF IN First: Sickly, famous, inimical to his relations, rich, courageous. The native is more sickly than famous or rich in this disposition.

Second: Losses through enemies or bad health, bad eyesight, diseases of the mouth, may do better in foreign lands. Third: Short tempered, inimical to younger brothers and sisters. Fourth: Little happiness from mother, loss of land and property through enemies, backbiter, jealous, indebted. Fifth: Inimical relations with children. Instable wealth. But this position is good for health, 5th being 12th to 5th, i.e. the house of lose for the 6th, the disposition of the lord of 6th in 5th destroys enemies and bad health. In other words he keeps good health, is free from enemies, debts etc.

99


Sixth: This will be his own house and it is, therefore, a good position. The lord of 6th in 6th will destroy enemies; give good health to the native and also wealth by service and trough cattle. Seventh: Benefit of conjugal happiness, wife sickly, and the native also suffers from ill health. Eight: Sickly, loose morals but wealthy. As explained earlier the disposition of a lord of dusthana in another dusthana gives rise to vipreet Rajayoga and this makes the native wealthy. But this happens only when the Mahadasha or antardasha of lord of the sixth is in operation. Ninth: Creates obstructions in the rise of the native, causes looses of wealth. Tenth: As a lord of dusthana he creates obstructions in profession through enemies, not a good position. Eleventh: May get gains from enemies. Losses through enemies are also indicated. Twelfth: Extravagant, loose morals, violent, jealous, but may get sudden wealth as lord of 6th will be in a dusthana. LORD OF SEVENTH BHAVA IF IN First: Adulterous, clever, impatient. Second: May have more than one marriage, gains after marriage. Third: Loss of children, no marriage or delay in marriage. Fourth: Happy, intelligent, religious minded. Fifth: Famous, respected, happy, wealthy. Sixth: Sickly wife or may be bereft of wife or unhappy conjugal life. Seventh: This will be own house for the lord of 7th. He will have a good healthy wife, early marriage, good children; he will be wealthy and have good position in life; if in business good relations with partners. Eighth: Wife sickly, loss of conjugal happiness, wife wealthy if lord of seventh is a benefic planet and owns a good house counted from the 7th. The 8th house will be 2nd to 7th and will therefore, be Dhanabhava (house of wealth) for the wife. Ninth: Many women will come in his life, wealthy, happy gains after marriage. Tenth: Happy, wife may also be earning and a little dominating, success in business partnership. Eleventh: Gains after marriage or through wife, good children.

100


Twelfth: A very bad position for the lord of 7th and as the 12th will be 6th to the 7th house and, therefore, the house of diseases, debts and enemies for the wife, Result – wife sickly, loss of wealth through wife or on account of her health. If a female horoscope sickly or poor husband. LORD OF 8TH BHAVA IF IN First: Bereft of bodily happiness that is, ill health, prone to accidents. Some authorities are of the view that this position is good for longevity. The reasoning is that the 8th house is the house of longevity and when the 8th lord is in the first house, he becomes very powerful and, therefore, bestows good longevity. This reasoning looks to us quite plausible but for good longevity not only the lord of 8th be in the 1st but the lord of 1st should also be very powerful by being posited in an auspicious house with favorable aspects. Second: Poor, never gets back what is lost. Third: Bereft of happiness from younger brothers and sisters, lazy, weak minded, timid. But lord of 8th is said to give longevity as the 3rd being 8th to 8th is also treated as a house of longevity. Fourth: Bereft of happiness from the mother or loss of mother in childhood, loss of ancestral property or no ancestral property, unhappy. Fifth: Idiot, few children, long lived. Sixth: Defeats his enemies, sickly, danger of snakebite or accidents particularly by drowning, may get wealth suddenly (lord of a dusthana in another desthana). Seventh: Loss of wife, unhappy married life, losses in business partnership. Eight: Long lived, loose morals, backbiter.

Ninth: Long-lived, unpopular, causes obstructions in rise in life, loss of wealth, bad for father. Tenth: Losses and obstruction in profession, loose morals, backbiter. Eleventh: Long lived but poor.

Twelfth: Extravagant, not good for longevity but good for wealth as lord of 8th will be in another dusthana. LORD OF 9TH BHAVA IF IN First: Fortunate, respected by Government, king, good manners, good morals, handsome, learned, popular.

101


Second: Learned, popular, wealthy, lusty and has happiness in regard to family and children. Third: Happy relations with brothers and sisters, wealthy, clever, good manners. It will be noted that third house is a dusthana but lord of 9th gives good results in this house firstly, because he is the lord of a very auspicious house and secondly, because he aspects the 9th house (his own house) from this position making it powerful. Fourth: Comforts of houses, lands and conveyances, happiness in respect of mother. Fifth: Good children, native devoted to his preceptor (Guru), good morals, religious minded learned, respected, famous and wealthy. Sixth: Fluctuating fortunate, no good relations with maternal relations, troubled by enemies. Seventh: Good gains after marriage, learned, famous. Eighth: Unfortunate in every respect. This is the worst position for the lord of the 9th as 8th is 12th to 9th and is therefore, the house of loss for the 9th. Ninth: (Own house): Very fortunate, gets all he wants, if 9th may be a movable sign he may go abroad and earn wealth, name and fame there also. Has long lived and prosperous father. In this position the lord of 9th causes a powerful Raja yoga. Tenth: Becomes king or like a king or minister, Prime Minister, President, a high Government official, a very successful businessman. This disposition also gives rise to a powerful Raja yoga. Eleventh: Gains always, devoted and obedient to elders and his Guru, clever, Charitable. Twelfth: Unfortunate spends lavishly on good causes and thereby becomes poor (there are many example of people who give all their wealth for charitable purposes). It will be noted that 12th being 4th from 9th, the position of lord of 9th in 12th is not bad but good for the father of the native. LORD OT TENTH BHAVA IF IN First: Learned, famous, wealthy, poet, sickly in childhood later picks up health, his wealth grows day by day. Second: Happy, wealthy, respected by Government, charitable, generally his wealth is selfacquired. Third: Courageous, generally his live hood is from service and he can become well off only by hard work. Fourth: This is an excellent position for the lord of tenth. From here he aspects his own house the tenth. Happiness from mother, owns conveyances, lands and buildings, is wealthy and learned.

102


Fifth: Rise in career by changes, high education, course of good career, learned, and intelligent, wealthy, happiness from children. The 5th house is 8th from 10th and, therefore, a dusthana for the 10th house. But the 5th house is very auspicious from the lagna. Therefore, while these may be changes in career, ultimate result will be beneficial to the native. Sixth: Ups and downs in professional life, unfortunate, troubles from enemies in his profession. For a person in service, this position of the lord of the tenth may result his being often superseded by his juniors who may be engaged in inimical activities against him. Seventh: Learned, good thinker, studious, good married life. May be, his wife may also be earning, and may be helping him in his profession. Eighth: Bad morals, backbiter, black mailer, losses in profession, disgrace but long lived. Ninth: Although ninth is 12th to 10th and, therefore, the house of loss for the 10th. But 9th is the most auspicious house counted from lagna. Therefore, the disposition of the lord of the 10th in the 9th give rise to a powerful Raja yoga giving name, fame and wealth to the native. He has good children and is learned and happy. Tenth: This will be his own house. In this position lord of tenth gives rise to a powerful Raja yoga. He is clever, happy enterprising, truthful, wealthy, famous, learned and gets honors from Government. He holds high position in Government or political spheres. Eleventh: Happiness from children, truthful, always happy. Good gains of wealth by own efforts – that is, by his professional career. Twelfth: Losses through Government (like fines, taxes etc), unhappy, losses in profession, troubled in profession by secret enemies. LORD OF ELEVENTH BHAVA IF IN First: Wealthy, happy, poet, orator, always gets gains. Second: Has wealth of all kinds, all ambitions fulfills, successful in all ventures, happy. He may get sudden gains from speculation if there is an aspect or conjunction of the lord of the 5th. Third: Obstructions in gains on account of brothers. Not a good position for the lord of 11th as far as the native is concerned. Fourth: Gains of wealth from the mother or maternal relations, fond of pilgrimage to holy places, acquisition of lands and buildings etc. Fifth: Good and prosperous children, happy, learned. Sixth: Sickly, never goes straight in life, goes away to foreign lands, troubled by enemies. Also losses through enemies. Seventh: Gains from wife’s side that is from the father-in-law’s family liberal, lusty, dominated by his wife.

103


Eighth: Long lived but life full of obstacles and losses. His wife dies during his lifetime. Ninth: Fortunate, clever, writer, editor, respected by Government, wealthy. Tenth: Tenth is 12th to eleventh and therefore the house of loss for the eleventh but again 10th is a powerful auspicious house from lagna: Therefore, the presence of lord of 11th in the 10th is considered auspicious and good for the native but the gains of wealth will come as a result of hard work in the profession and not easily. In this disposition there is also a tendency for the native to renounce the world and become a Sanyasi. Eleventh: This will be his own house and, therefore, will bring easy gains of wealth. The native will be happy both in regard to wealth as well as children. His elder brother will be prosperous and long-lived. He will have good and true friends. Twelfth: Spends on good causes, extravagant, fond of women (the twelfth house also represents comforts of bed). LORD OF TWELFTH BHAVA IF IN First: Extravagant, weak constitution, bereft of wealth and education. This disposition also adversely affects the longevity of the native. Second: Spends on good causes, religious minded, happy but without much wealth. Third: Bereft of happiness from brothers and sisters, jealous no initiative, selfish and unhappy. Fourth: Deprived of comforts of lands, buildings, conveyances, loss of domestic happiness, with this disposition the native may not get happiness from his mother but it is good for his mother because 12th house is 9th from the 4th and is therefore, the bhagya house for his mother. Fifth: Devoid of education and children or has to incur losses through his children. Sixth: Jealous, short tempered, unhappy, adulterer, but he is wealthy and famous because the disposition of the lord of a dusthana causes Vipreet Raja yoga. Seventh: Losses through women, little married happiness. There may be separation between husband and wife.

Eighth: Wealthy (Lord of dusthana in other dusthana), medium life. Ninth: Selfish, poor, unfortunate. Tenth: Unhappy, difficulties in profession, may be punished or disgraced by Government. Eleventh: Here almost all the classical texts say that in this position the lord of 12th results in extravagances on the part of the native. We feel that 11th is 12th to 12th (house of loss) the disposition of the lord of 12th will negative the losses and make the native wealthy.

104


Twelfth: This will be own house for the lord of 12th. Every planet is happy and beneficial in his own house. The position will give the native good gains of wealth, comforts of bed (he may get the company of many women). If the lord of 12th is Guru, Ravi, Chandra or Sani, the expenditure will be on good causes, otherwise on getting pleasures. RAHU AND KETHU We have decided, for the guidance of students, to have a basic insight on these planets. All learned in astrology are agreed that Rahu and Kethu are only shadow planets and have no physical bodies like the other seven planets, but there is a lot of controversy as to whether they are owner of any rasis or not. We would advise the student until by further study and experience they are able to form their own judgment, to accept the position that Rahu and Kethu are not lords of any Rais, and also that Vrishabha is the exaltation rasi of Rahu and Vrischika is his debilitation sign or rasi: Similarly Vrischika may be accepted as the exaltation sign of Kethu and Vrishabha as his sign of debilitation. Maharishi Parasara´s Brihat Parasara Hora supports this view. Rahu and Kethu should be treated as shadow planets. They represent the lord of the sign. They also act as a strong agent to the planet with which they are conjoined. If they are not conjoined with any planet, they give the results of the planets which aspect them. Only when they are neither conjoined with nor aspected by any planets, they represent the lord of the house in which they are posited. It is on account of this principle of astrology that we find that while people shiver when they are told that the Mahadasha of Rahu or Kethu is on or is about to operate, but actually when we see the results they prove very auspicious if Rahu and Kethu represent auspicious planets in the chart. If Rahu and Kethu occupy beneficial houses like the fifth or the ninth and if they are in conjunction with or aspect by, the lord of the maraca house 2 or 7, they cause death in their dashas even though the lord of houses 5 and 9 are to produce Raja-yogas (good results). If Rahu and Kethu are in maraca houses i.e. 2 or 7 and if they are conjoined with or aspect by the lords of the 5th and the 9th, they do not cause death, but on the other hand they increase one’s wealth, improve one’s health and contribute for a long span of life. But if Rahu and Kethu are in 2 or 7 and if the lords of 2 or 7 are conjoined with either of them or if they aspect Rahu or Kethu, the latter then gets power of inflicting death. If Rahu or Kethu occupies an evil house and conjoined with lords of Kendra or trikona, they cannot produce beneficial results. If Rahu or Kethu is in either 6, 8 or 12 and if they are connected with lords of kendras or trikonas, the native will enjoy the beneficial results during the antardasha of such a lord but they suffer from disease, undergo many difficulties, meet with accidents, etc., during antardasha of the lord of 6th, 8th or 12th. If Rahu or Kethu occupies the house 1, 3, 4, 7 or 9 or 10 and if Raja-yoga planets conjoin them or aspect them, one can expect happiness, health, wealth, children, power, prosperity and comforts of conveyance in their periods.

105


RAHU AND KETHU IN HOUSES Whenever Rahu will be in the first house, Kethu will naturally bi in the seventh house. Their results are complimentary. So when we deal with Rahu in the first house, no separate delineation of Kethu in the seventh house is necessary. Rahu is the giver, Kethu is the taker, and since giving and taking are results of former action, we may more clearly see the justice in present gains and losses as indicated by the house position of Rahu and Kethu. Rahu (uninflected) attracts blessings according to the house it occupies, while Kethu robs us of coveted prizes. Wherever Kethu happens to fall natally, that area of the chart will need more effort from the person than the opposite area. Rahu and Kethu do better in 3, 6, 10 and 11 houses. Cases of abortions, stillbirths, death of children, happiness from children, all comes within the purview of Rahu/Kethu influences. FIRST HOUSE This position often signifies that the personal values are more important than general public or partnership. This person needs to learn to do things for himself, to rely on his own initiative. He will need to accomplish things through the power of his personality and develop selfsufficiency. The partnership activities are often a drag for them in many ways but they have to learn to cope with that. Other people or partnerships become a medium of learning experiences with or without choice. SECOND HOUSE This condition often signifies unusual financial activities or abilities to deal with earnings and managing his own resources. They have to learn to abide by their own resources, as it is an inborn instinct for him to depend upon others finance and resources. He must build his own, if his destiny is to be fulfilled. He should try to stay away from credit matters and others resource as much as possible. If afflicted, years of affluence are followed by years of privation, so the sound investments should be made to provide for less productive periods. THIRD HOUSE This condition often signifies unusual intellectual abilities and their use in this life. He needs to develop the ability to share his sense of awareness in his life with those in his social environment and receive from their sense of awareness and impressions. Excellent relationships with brothers and sisters are noticed. Benefits from travel and short moves are often noticed in their life. If afflicted, pleasure through short journeys and neighboring cities is denied. Extreme view on national problems is expressed. Kethu in the 9th house in Sagittarius is good for spirituality but bad for worldly luck and good fortune. FOURTH HOUSE Benefit comes through a parent, probably the mother. Gain is made through immoveable property or mineral wealth. For some reason, home or domestification is highly significant in their life. There may be a problem in connection with a parent or an imbalance in his love for them, loving one more or it could give loss of one at an early age. Career is given a second priority in their life. Although they have a strong self-displaying ego, circumstances may not give them the opportunity to be prominent in their field.

106


FIFTH HOUSE This condition often signifies close relationship with children. He is to learn to use his heart and become “attached” in a very personal way. He needs to love deeply and intensely on a one-to-one basis. They have fairly good success in love/romance, but regarding friendships they may have some disappointments. Pleasures through social intercourse. Speculative gains are shown, unless heavily afflicted. He should develop a great desire to be creative in some endeavor. SIXTH HOUSE The recuperative powers are great and health can be regained through fasting or avoiding excesses. This condition often signifies work-related areas and their importance in life. With this position he needs to learn to work and be of service to others. He must learn to do for others with no regard for himself. For spiritual growth, this is quite a good position of Rahu. Afflictions lessen the time available for these studies and increase health difficulties. Kethu in the 12th house in Sagittarius is bad for worldly pleasures, like comforts of the couch but very good for moksha or salvation, meaning release from the repeated cycle of births and deaths. SEVENTH HOUSE This condition often signifies that marriage or partnership activities are extremely important in his life. The marriage or business partner is usually more nature than the native. This person has to overcome a tendency to work by himself. He needs to learn to work with a partner, to learn the balance it takes to do this. Pleasures are obtained through contact with the public. They are very charming, diplomatic and polite in general expression or communication. Afflictions threaten separation from partners and lawsuits. Kethu in the Rising Sign (Ascendant, Lagna) is not conductive to the health of the native. When afflicted, evil results may happen which may adversely affect the native’s health, reputation and relation with the Government. Sudden fall from position can happen. EIGHTH HOUSE This position forces the person to learn to accept another’s financial help. Money is obtained through partners. Legacies are promised. Sometime in his life, he will be forced to learn the acceptance of the humility of taking from others. Strong interest in the occult or hidden side of life is noticed as a rescue from the material world. Learning from the idea or reality of death and regeneration is strongly noticed in this case. If afflicted, fear of poverty, financial losses, and physical weakness according to the sign at the 8th house. NINTH HOUSE When the position is not developed, they have to learn a lot of lessons from their mistakes in many cases; they cannot even communicate their problems. This can also indicate disregard for religion. They will get involved with publication, publicity or some foreign affairs/activities in their lifetime due to strange coincidences. He needs to become more objective in his interpretations within his immediate world. Affairs of brothers or sisters are very destined in their life whether they want it or not.

107


TENTH HOUSE This condition often signifies stronger success in the profession or career area but the native will have a checkered career. Avocation should be followed, sometime to the point of sacrificing home and domestic life. This means working for or with the public in some way, and he will have less time to spend on home matters. Public recognition and honors. Often difficulties during childhood bring about a mother/father complex to this person. They are a lot closer to their father than mother. Their first half of life is not very enjoyable compared to the second half. When afflicted, others contrive to bring about his downfall. ELEVENTH HOUSE This position often signifies that the person has considered friendships. Friends, in a better position than the native, assist in time of need. Many hopes are realized. Here they must become like an Aquarian in the highest sense of the word, a true humanitarian. Problems and difficulties usually stem out of romances and quite often formation of a successful relationship is very difficult. Their next difficulty is with regard to children. Afflictions create enmities and jealousies. TWELFTH HOUSE The person has a lot to learn in this lifetime with or without individual choice and needs selfsacrifice. It is helping those less fortunate, handicapped, or afflicted. In their work, they are quite methodical, practical, punctual and steady. The digestive system or problems with circulation needs attention in their case. Afflictions sometimes result in lack of mental balance, vague imaginations and forebodings. Occult studies should not be indulged in at such time. RAHU AND KETHU SIGNS Whenever Rahu is in Aries, Kethu will naturally be in Libra. Their axis is always complimentary to each other’s. So the delineation of Rahu in one sign will automatically cover the delineation of Kethu in the opposite sign. 1. Rahu/Kethu posited in dual signs and in conjunction with or aspect by the rulers of the 6th or 8th or the 12th house will cause loss of elder brother or father or the native. But, if they are connected with an angle or trine ruler, then wealth, power, status etc. will be conferred on the native. 2. Rahu identical to its exalted sign (Gemini) placed in an angle or trine gives political power and fame. He will have all the comforts and will become the chief of his clan. 3. Rahu placed in Taurus, Cancer or Aries gives wealth, education, good servants, pleasing wife/husband and benefits from the Government. ARIES/LIBRA In his past life, the person was lucky and was surrounded by luxuries and comforts. He was engaged in higher spiritual learning and good things in life were the main pursuits of his soul. In this lifetime, the dramatic instinct is strong and there is plenty of self-command. There will

108


be auspicious ceremonies in the house, acquisition of lands, perfect domestic harmony and happiness. Failure to keep both hands tied up may cause loss of many successful opportunities in the present incarnation. TAURUS/SCORPIO In his past life, the person was engaged in many underworld activities. Distorted sexual life and misuse of power was the lifestyle. Consequently, he must have undergone several punishments before the present birth took place. In this lifetime, he has a sense of mastership and a democratic view of human necessity. There will be pilgrimage to shrines and holy places and increase in philosophical knowledge. He will try all his best to live nicely and comfortable and struggle to, at least, maintain his Karmic status. GEMINI/SAGITTARIUS The person spent his past life in various philosophical and mystical pursuits. He preferred a life of freedom and independence. In this life, a very marked sense of humor coupled with the desire to be just to all makes him an admirable character. If he tries to isolate and withdraw from the society, the circumstances force him to be with others. He has the power to suggest or transfer ideas to others at a distance and foresee events. He seldom has a chance or opportunity to cultivate his emotional and material base. CANCER/CAPRICORN In past life, this person has suffered many difficult and confining situations. Domestic life was unpleasant and unhappy. In this life, he will have a keen interest in new ideas and enterprises, if they relate to home comforts. Family cohesion is important to him. Some pride is shown and a tendency to boast also. He may show a colder exterior, but you can get to him through proper emotionalism. He would like to serve the sufferers and will have enthusiasm for national service. LEO/AQUARIUS He has spent his past life in many unusual activities. He hardly had time for his personal needs and worked towards achieving things for others. In this lifetime, he will have vitality to carry forward large enterprises. He has the capacity to supervise others and capable of undertaking responsibilities very early in life. His mental harmony is possibly his greatest charm. Strong self-conditioning and self-confidence is noticed in him in this life. He will build new houses and will travel in foreign lands. VIRGO/PISCES In past life, he was almost an incognito person. He did not have many opportunities, because he could not identify them and make use of them. In this lifetime, social desires are very pronounced and there is often much stability and perseverance. He has been given many opportunities in this life, but at the same time, he has to achieve them very methodically. Thus, he cannot just skip and go on to the next game in life. There will be sudden access to much wealth.

109


LIBRA/ARIES He has spent his past life with a lot of physical activities, temper and aggression. In that life he gained and lost many things simultaneously as he could not learn to balance them. In this life, he will be mild and gentle, and dignified and upright. Whatever he does in this life will have a sense of justice. He will achieve success in this life without fighting for it and just by utilizing his mental energies. He may not be after materialistic comforts and luxuries, but he is always lucky to be in plentiful in that respect. SCORPIO/TAURUS He has spent his past life in luxuries and comforts without caring for the higher learning. He would not listen to anybody and will go with a routine life. In this lifetime, there is seldomsteady accomplishment and mental discord robs him of many pleasures in life. He will go from one extreme stage of living to another during the same life. His hidden motive and energies are strong and will use them whenever he has to. As long as nobody disturbs him, he will be quiet, polite and gentle. He may forget, but he never forgives what others do to him. SAGITTARIUS/GEMINI The past life was spent in many communicative and intellectual activities. He had to deal with others constantly and had to fulfill what they expected of him. In this life, desire for direct results leads to impatience and impulse. Now he is choosing a path of independence and isolation. He will take keen interest inpublic affairs, but is apt to overreach himself. He will achieve substantial esoteric knowledge or understanding with or without being too involved in the occult. He is very much interested in the material things as well as in the human emotionalism. CAPRICORN/CANCER In his past life, home and the surrounding was the key focus. He has spent his past life in various domesticated activities. He could not get a chance to go out and do things. As a result of this, he is required to do a lot of things in this life outside home. He is endowed with grace and idealism, has much sympathy for others and interest in seeing those in his own circle accumulate wealth. He is logical in argument, takes an interest in politics, and likes grandeur in buildings and gives of his substance to the weaker and less fortunate. AQUARIUS/LEO He was very much self-centered in his past life and had no time for others. His status was pretty high and commanded a great respect for his powers in the society. Now, in this life he is to learn to be humanly, to mix with others and help them to solve their problems. He will have the tendency to neglect home or office routine, if these interfere with his social ambitions. His innovations and abilities to tackle situations is quite amazing. Unpredictability is always on his side, which he has difficulty dealing with in this lifetime.

110


PISCES/VIRGO In past life, he was very methodical and detailed oriented to a point of extreme. He spent his past life in substantial discriminating conditions and instincts would not even get close to him at that time. Endurance in research work, persistence and efficiency as well as the desire for the minutest accuracy mark the influence of this lifetime. His decision may not be logical on the surface, but he does not care in that respect. Dealing with people and their emotions is important for him as he likes the exchange of feelings in this material world to keep him happy.

IMPORTANCE OF YOGAS IN THE JUDGMENT OF HOROSCOPES Yoga is a Hindi word which means addition, but while using this term in connection with the judgment of a horoscope, yoga means a combination or disposition of some planets in such a way as to mar or improve the structure of the horoscope. Good disposition of the auspicious planets in the horoscope gives rise to beneficial yogas which have been given different names as DHANAYOGAS meaning wealth giving combinations, RAJAYOGAS meaning combinations which give name, fame, honor and wealth to the native. Still highly categorized yogas are called MAHABHAGYA YOGAS, MAHARAJA YOGAS etc. Inauspicious combinations give loss of wealth, loss of name etc. to the native. Classical text on Hindu Astrology are full of such yogas. There are thousands of them and it is impossible to include them in our lessons but still we will, in order to give an idea to the students, describe in this lesson some of the good and bad yogas. That will also give them guidance to judge the dispositions and combinations of the planets in the horoscope and find out which of them could be beneficial to the native and which one would be harmful. At first we will describe how the Dhanayogas (wealth giving combinations) and Daridra yogas (poverty giving yogas) are formed: DHANA YOGAS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

When lords of 9th and 11th house are in one house “ 9rh and 10th “ “ 9th and 4th “ “ 9th and 5th “ “ 9th and 1st “ “ 9th and 2nd “ “ 10th and 11th “ “ 10th and 4th “ “ 10th and 5th “ “ 10th and 2nd “ “ 10th and 1st “ “ 11th and 1st “ “ 11th and 2nd “ “ 11th and 4th “ “ 11th and 5th “ “ 1st and 2nd “ “ 1st and 5th “ “ 1st and 4th “ “ 2nd and 5th “ “ 2nd and 4th “ “ 4th and 5th “

These yogas will bear fruit only if they are formed in auspicious houses i.e. 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th, and 11th. They will be of little value, if they are formed in houses 2, 6, 8 and 12. Not only the association of the above planets constitutes DHANA YOGA, but the yoga arises also if there is mutual aspect or even one-sided aspect amongst them.

113


DARIDRA YOGAS Combination of lords of 1) 6th and 2nd houses 2) 6th and 1st 3) 6th and 4th 4) 12th and 4th 5) 12th and 2nd 6) 12th and 1st 7) 6th and 10th 8) 12th and 10th 9) 6th and 5th

10) 6th and 7th 11) 12th and 5th 12) 12th and 7th 13) 6th and 9th 14) 12th and 9th 15) 6th and 3rd 16) 12th and 3rd 17) 6th and 11th 18) 12th and 11th

RASI PARIVARTAN YOGA This means when the lord of one sign (house) is in another sign (house) and the lord of the latter sign (house) is in the former. This yoga becomes a MAHABHAGYA YOGA if exchange is between lord of auspicious houses viz. 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 11. Such yoga gives the Mahadasha of one and the Antardasha of the other planet (who are involved in the yoga) great name, fame and wealth. However, if the exhange is between the lord of good house and lord of 3, 6, 8 or 12 it is called DAINYA YOGA with causes ups and downs and struggles in life particularly in the Mahadasha and Antardasha of planets involved in the yoga. The exchange of houses between lords of 3, 6, 8 and 12 amongst themselves is good and becomes VIPREET RAJA-YOGA.

The horoscope on page 165 is of Prime Minister Shrimati Indira Gandhi. In this horoscope there is Rasi Parivartan yoga between the lord of 2nd and 5th and between 2nd and 7th. This has proved very beneficial for Shrimati Gandhi. There is also a Dainya yoga caused by the exchange between the lord of 11th and 6th.

114


SUNAPHA YOGA When there are planets in the 2nd to Chandra this yoga is caused. It gives wealth, name and fame to the native according to the natural qualities of planet. Even a malefic is considered good in this yoga – of course he will give the benefit according to his own qualities. Ravi, Rahu and Kethu do not count in this yoga. ANAPHA YOGA This is formed when there are planets in the 12th house to Chandra. Here it is better if the planets are neutral benefices. Malefic give trouble and benefices give the native name, wealth, fame and success but all has to be achieved by his own efforts. Here also Ravi, Rahu and Kethu are not considered. DURUDHARA YOGA This is caused when there are planets both in the 2nd and 12th houses to Chandra. Benefices give very good results and malefic cause trouble. Benefic and malefic combined give mixed results. KENDRUM YOGA This is an inauspicious yoga and is caused when there are no planets in the 2nd and 12th houses to Chandra. Presence of this yoga in the horoscope, it is said, lessens the good effects of other yogas and gives little success to the native in his life. It is believed that evil effects of this yoga are cancelled, if Chandra is posited in the horoscope in Kendra to the lagna, or Chandra is in his own sign Kataka or if there are planets in Kendra position to Chandra. We have, in our experience, seen Kendra position to Chandra. We have, in our experience, seen very evil results coming out if this yoga is present in a horoscope. CHANDRA MANGAL YOGA If Kuja (Mangal) is associated with Moon this yoga is formed. Some say that this yoga is also formed if there is mutual aspect between Chandra and Kuja. The effect of this yoga is gain of wealth though through occupations like selling liquor, black marketing, selling women, keeping brothels. If the combination has good aspect of Guru or Sukra, the gain of wealth will be through fair means. LAGNADHIYOGA AND CHANDRADHIYOGA When there are benefices (Guru, Sukra and Budha) in the houses 6th, 7th and 8th or 6th or 7th or 8th from Lagna or Chandra (Chandra Lagna) this yoga is formed. For the yoga to be fully effective it should be formed by all the three benefices not by one or two only. The presence of this yoga in the birth chart will make the native polite and trustworthy, happy, wealthy, famous and will enable him to be victorious over his enemies. This is considered to be one of the most beneficial and auspicious yoga.

115


CHATUSSARA YOGA This yoga is caused when planets occupy all the Kendra’s. With this yoga in the horoscope the native will earn good reputation, will be very well off in his life and will be blessed with children and will have name and fame all over the country. VASUMATHI YOGA This yoga is formed when benefices occupy Upashaya houses (3, 6, 10 and 11) from Lagna or Chandra. The result of this yoga is that the person will not be dependent on others and will be wealthy. AMALA YOGA This yoga is formed when there is a benefic in the 10th house from Chandra or Lagna. The presence of this yoga in the birth chart will enable the native to achieve lasting fame and reputation. He will have good moral character and be prosperous. KAHALA YOGA This yoga is formed when the lords of the 4th and 9th houses are in kendras from each other and lord of lagna is strong. This yoga makes the native stubborn, brave and head of a village or community. SHUBHA VESI YOGA If benefic planets other than Chandra occupy the 2nd from Ravi, this yoga is formed. This yoga makes the person fortunate, happy, virtuous and famous. PAPA VESI YOGA This yoga is formed by the malefic being 2nd to Ravi. The result is opposite to Shubha Vesi Yoga. SHUBA VASI YOGA Benefic planets are in 12th house to Ravi. The effect is good orator, well-proportioned limbs, wealthy and famous. PAPA VASI YOGA is formed by malefic in the 12th to Ravi and gives opposite results. OBHAYACHARI YOGA This is formed when there are planets on both sides of Ravi. Obviously benefic planets will give the results of the Shubha Vesi and Shubha Vasi Yogas and the malefic the reverse of that.

116


GAJA KESARI YOGA This yoga is formed when Guru is in Kendra from Chandra. This yoga gives many relations, makes the native polite and generous a builder of a village or town or its ruler and famous. PANCHA MAHAPURUSH YOGAS These are 5 as follows: 1) RUCHAKA YOGA When Kuja is in his exaltation sign or own sign and is in Kendra to Lagna or Chandra. The person born in this yoga will have good health, will be ruler or will hold high office in the army or police. He will be liberal, wealthy and long-lived. 2) HAMSA YOGA When Guru is in his exaltation or own sign and is in Kendra to Chandra or Lagna. With this yoga the native will possess a beautiful body, he will be liked by others and will have a good moral character. 3) BHADRA YOGA When Budha is in his exaltation or own sign and is in Kendra to Lagna or Chandra, the person born in this yoga will have good physique and well-proportioned limbs strong as that of a lion. He will be long-lived and will do well to others. 4) MALAVYA YOGA When Sukra is in his exaltation or own sign and is in Kendra to Lagna or Chandra, the person with this yoga will have a well-built body, be handsome, wealthy, happy with wife and children. He will also be long lived, famous and will have the comforts of vehicles – (his own or these under his control). 5) SASA YOGA When Sani is in his exaltation or own sign and is in Kendra to Lagna or Chandra, the person with this yoga will have many servants at his disposal, he will be cruel, a leader or the head of a village, town or community. He will be inclined to deprive others of their riches for his own benefit. PUSHKALA YOGA This yoga is formed when the lord of the sign occupied by Chandra (who should be associated with the lord of Lagna) be in Kendra or in the house of an intimate friend aspecting Lagna and at the same time Lagna should be occupied by a powerful planet. This yoga makes the native wealthy, soft-spoken, famous and respected by Government.

117


LAKSHMI YOGA This yoga is formed when the lord of Lagna os powerful and the lord of the 9th occupy a Kendra Trikona in own or exaltation sign. With this yoga the native will be noble, rich, learned, handsome, famous, honest, good ruler and will enjoy all comforts of life. KALANIDHI YOGA This yoga is formed when Guru be aspect by Budha or Sukra either in the 2nd or in the 5th house and Guru be in the 2nd or 5th in the sign of Budha or Sukra. This yoga makes the native highly passionate, good natured, respected by authorities and he gets comforts of conveyances and other luxuries. KUSUM YOGA This yoga is formed when Guru is in Lagna, Chandra in the 7th and Ravi in the 8th from Chandra. With this yoga the native will be a person of a very high status or be head of a town, village or community and he will have good reputation. ASATYVADI YOGA This yoga is formed when the lord of the 2nd occupies the house of Sani or Kuja and malefic join Kendras and Trikonas. This yoga makes the native a perfect liar. RAJA YOGAS Raja-yogas are those, which give name, fame, wealth and authority. Some selected Rajayogas are given below: 1) Three or more planets should be in exaltation own house occupying Kendras. 2) When a planet is in debilitation but is retrograde and occupies a favorable position. 3) Three or four planets possess Digbala. 4) The lord of the sign in which a planet is debilitated or the planet who would be exalted there, should be in Kendra to Chandra or Lagna. This is called NEECHABHANGA RAJA YOGA 5) Chandra be in Kendra (not in Lagna) and be aspect by Guru. 6) Out of the lords of the 2nd, 9th and 11th houses, at least one planet be in Kendra from Chandra and Guru be lord of 2nd, 5th or 11th house. 7a) Lord of 9th in 9th. b) Lord of 10th in 10th c) Lord of 9th in 10th or lord of 10th on 9th. d) Lord of 9th and 10th in 10th or in 9th. e) Lord of 9th from 9th i.e. 5th in 5th. f) Lord of 10th from 10th i.e. 7th in 7th. g) Lord of 10th from 9th i.e. 6th in 6th

118


.MAHABHAGYA YOGA As the name denotes this yoga is supposed to make the native very fortunate. This yoga is formed in day birth chart, if the Lagna, Chandra and Ravi are all in odd signs. In a night birth chart the Lagna, Ravi and Chandra should be in even signs. The above are some of the selected yogas collected for the benefit of the students. Students are advised to check the yogas when present in the horoscope very carefully because yogas to be fully efficacious should be formed in auspicious houses and by lords of auspicious houses with the exception of Chandradhi and Lagnadgi yogas in which the planets have to be in the 6th, or 7th or 8th house from Lagna or Chandra. RESULTS OF DASHAS AND ANTARDASHAS These Dashas and Antardashas are meant for predicting as to when a particular event will happen and whether at a particular time an individual is going through a favourable or unfavourable period. A planet during his Dasha or Antardasha will be capable of producing good or bad results pertaining to his natural characteristics (Karakatwas), the sign and the house he owns. The result would be favourable or unfavourable according to his being strong or benefic or weak or malefic in the horoscope concerned. It is impossible for us to lay down any firm or definite details or description of the results of the Dashas and Antardashas of different planets as their operation would depend on the structure of each horoscope and like a human face we seldom find two horoscopes almost identical. RAVI MAHADASHA (SUN) If Ravi be a strong benefic (that is lord of an auspicious house ) and well placed in the horoscope (that is not placed in house 3, 6, 8, 12) during the Dasha or Antardasha, there will be birth of children and the native would get power and authority, fame, favor from elders, Government. There will be success in undertaking and the father of the native would benefit. The native would also enjoy good health. If Ravi be weak and malefic in the birth chart his Dasha and Antardasha results would be unfavorable. Ill health, bilious troubles, heart disease, eye trouble, skin troubles, loss of wealth and reputation, imprisonment, ill health of father and quarrels in the family may be expected. CHANDRA (MOON) If Chandra be strong, benefic and well placed in the birth charts, her Dasha and Antardasha will bring tranquility of mind, success in business, enjoyment of comforts, birth of children, marriage, gains from lands, houses and Government. If Chandra be weak, malefic and ill placed the results would be unfavourable. Sleeping disease, drowsiness, anxiety of mind, diseases like diarrheas, jaundice, anemia and impurity of blood may be expected. Danger to mother, loss of ancestral property and lose through female agency may be expected.

119


KUJA (MARS) If strong, benefic and well placed, success in litigation, defeat of enemies, birth of brother or prosperity to him, gains from lands, minerals etc. may be expected. Fame will increase and the native may be able to get a position of command and power. If Kuja be weak, malefic and ill placed, failure in litigation or other ventures, quarrels in the family, ill health to or loss of brothers, loss of property, danger from accidents, displeasure from high officials, loss by fire and diseases like bilious troubles, impurity of blood, high blood pressure, fevers, eye troubles, appendicitis, throat troubles etc. may be expected during Kuja´s Dasha and Antardasha. BUDHA (MERCURY) If Budha be strong, benefic and well placed, we may expect in his Dashas and Antardashas, increase fame, improvement in educational field, new knowledge, respect from learned, honors in sports, high position, gains from business, proficiency in subjects like astrology, astronomy, mathematics etc. If Budha be weak, malefic and ill placed, skin troubles, anemia, heart trouble, mental troubles, nervous disorders, quarrels with friends, displeasure from superiors, failures in educational and research work, losses in business, losses to or death of maternal relatives may be expected during his Dasha and Antardasha. GURU (JUPITER) If Guru be strong, benefic and well placed in the horoscope, increase of wealth, exposition of the field of activity in which the native is engaged, gain of name and fame, respect from elders, favours from Government, promotion in service, birth of children, acquisition of vehicles, marriage of self or in family, acquisition of or improvement in knowledge relating to religious scriptures, good health etc., may be expected during his Dasha and Antardasha. If Guru be weak, malefic and ill-placed, ill health or loss of children, scandals, failure in undertakings may be expected. The native may also suffer from intestinal disorders, appendicitis, fainting, ear troubles, giddiness, liver troubles, diabetes, cancer, during his Dasha and Antardasha. SUKRA (VENUS) If Sukra be strong, benefic and well placed, there will be marriage, conjugal enjoyments, birth of daughters, acquisition of articles of luxury and comfort, conveyances and house, honours from Government, success in undertaking, gain of wealth etc. May be expected. If Sukra be weak, malefic, or ill placed, ill health or death of wife, entanglement with low class or immoral women, loss of vitality etc. may be expected in his Dasha and Antardasha. Diseases like venereal complaints, anemia, kidney and urinary troubles, eye troubles etc. may also be expected.

120


SANI (SATURN) If Sani be strong, benefic and well placed in the birth chart, we may expect during his Dasha and Antardasha, gain of high position and authority, influence over masses (Sani represents democracy) gains through servants, gains from land and agriculture, cattle, business etc. If Sani be weak, malefic and ill placed, we may expect during his Dasha and Antardasha, ill health (chronic troubles) death of elderly members in the family, trouble through servants, loss from lands, quarrels, and loss of influence in the public. Sani at times gives a lot of misery, if he is badly placed in the birth chart. It may also produce rheumatic complaints, colic pains, fatigue, general debility, injuries, ill health to wife and children or their death. Sani, if a great malefic in the chart becomes first class death inflicting planet to the native. RAHU (NORTH NODE) If Rahu be strong, benefic and well placed in the horoscope, we may expect during his Dasha and Antardasha accumulation of wealth, gains from business, prosperity or promotion in profession, gains of position and respect, a diplomatic or political assignment, general happiness and pilgrimage to holy places. If Rahu be weak, malefic and ill placed, we may expect loss of wealth, wanderings, quarrels, disputes, poverty, ill health (diseases may defy diagnosis), death in the family, contagious diseases etc. KETHU (SOUTH NODE) If Kethu be strong, benefic, and well placed in the birth chart, we may expect during his Dasha and Antardasha, gain of wealth, gains through evil actions, well being and general prosperity. If is said that death during the Dasha of Kethu gives MOKSHA (salvation from rebirth). If Kethu be weak, malefic and ill placed, we may expect during his Dasha and Antardasha, loss of wealth ill health disgrace, imprisonment, associations with low class people, fear from thieves or the native becoming a thief himself, diseases like leprosy and other troubles of chronic or incurable nature. NOTE The benefic places for Rahu and Kethu are 3rd, 6th and 11th houses. He is powerful to do good in the 4th, 6th, 9th and 10th houses also, but in the 5th house, he will cause death of children or abortion. In the 8th and 12th he is very troublesome. In the 7th he will cause death of wife and immoral tendencies. Kethu is benefic in 3rd, 6th and 11th places. He is malefic in other places. Rahu and Kethu being shadow planets, their functioning will, in spite of what is stated above, also depend mainly on their conjunctions with other planets and the aspects they receive. In this connection what has been stated in lesson XX about Rahu and Kethu should always be kept in mind while assessing their results during their Dashas and Antardashas.

121


RESULTS OF DASHAS AND ANTARDASHAS OF PLANETS (CONTINUED) In the previous parts we have given the results we might expect in the periods (Dasha and Antardasha) of the planets Ravi, Chandra etc., according to their natural characteristics. But what actually happens in that along with these effects they also give results according to the significations of the houses they own in a particular nativity (birth chart). The results according to the lordship of various houses are given below. I HOUSE (LAGNA) During the Dasha of the lord of Lagna, who is strong and well placed, the person will rise to eminence, will be happy, enjoy good health, gains wealth, name and fame and his popularity and influence will increase. If the Lord of Lagna be weak, ill placed and afflicted (affliction means bad conjunction, bad aspect etc) the person will suffer from ill health, mental anxiety, loss of wealth, position and will lead a miserable life. He may even have to leave his native place. II HOUSE If the lord of II house is well placed during his Dasha and Antardasham there will be general prosperity in the family, enjoyment of good food, accumulation of wealth, gain of knowledge, political gains etc. If the lord be weak, ill placed or afflicted during his periods, we may expect financial loss, loss of property, troubles amongst members of family, heavy expenditure and fall in income. The native might suffer from eye and mouth disease and indulge in falsehoods. III HOUSE If the lord of the III house be strong and well placed, during his periods, we may expect prosperity of brothers and sisters, receipt of good news and success in new ventures. If otherwise, the native might face loss of brothers or sisters, become timid and immoral and suffer disgrace. IV HOUSE (please see page 220) V HOUSE If the lord of the V house is strong and well placed, during his periods, the native may expect birth of children. The native may achieve success in Mantra Siddhi. If a politician or in service, he might get a good diplomatic assignment, or become a minister. He would do virtuous deeds, become popular and be happy. If the lord of V be weak or ill placed, we may expect the native to suffer from loss of mental equilibrium, loss of children, He may have to face scandals and troubles of the stomach. VI HOUSE

122


If the lord of VI house be well placed, during his periods we may expect the native to vanquish his enemies, to pay off his debts, to enjoy good health and to gain name, fame and wealth by daring acts. If it be otherwise, the results will be opposite and the native be expected to have a miserable time on account of ill health, debts and enemies. It should, however, be remembered that the 6th house is a dusthana. So it is always better for the lord of 6th to be weak in the horoscope – or to be in his own house or to be in 8th or 12th house by which position he would cause a Vipreet Raja-Yoga. VII HOUSE If the lord of the VII house be strong and well placed, the native may expect during his periods, his marriage, acquisition of items of luxury and comfort, married happiness, success in partnership, business etc. If it be otherwise, there will be separation from wife, troubles from other women, venereal disease, tiring journeys and wanderings. VIII HOUSE If the lord of the VIII house be strong and well placed, during his periods the native is expected to discharge his debts, gets sudden wealth by inheritance, insurance money, pension, gratuity etc. If it be otherwise, the native would suffer from obstructions from loss of health and wealth. As to what would be good position for the lord of 8th, what has been said under the VI house will apply to the lord of VIII house also. IX HOUSE If the lord of IX house be strong and well placed, the native can expect all kinds of happiness and comforts, name, fame and wealth. He can also attain success in higher education, become learned in scriptures and may perform gainful journeys to distant places (foreign countries). If it be otherwise, the results will be reverse of what has been said above. X HOUSE If the lord of X house is favourable disposed, during his periods the native will achieve success in his profession, acquire name, fame and honours, if a politician he may become a Minister, Prime Minister or President, will do good deeds and will lead a happy life. If otherwise the results will be opposite of what been said above.

123


XI HOUSE If the lord of XI house is favourably disposed, the native will have continued gains of wealth, his business will become very profitable and he will receive respect from others. He will make good friends and will construct houses and own conveyances. If it be otherwise the result will be so also. XII HOUSE If the lord of XII house is in his own house or in 6, 8, or 12 the native will gain name, fame, and wealth and get bed comforts, will possess luxuries and be happy. If the lord of 12th is posited elsewhere, he will involve all kinds of losses to the native and his life will be miserable. The results on account of lordship of house given above should be read along with Lesson XIX in which we have mentioned the results of the lords of various houses on account of their position in different house. Thus in order to arrive at a conclusive decision as to what will be the effect of a planet, we should carefully see the results by his position in a rasi and house and his lordship, as well as his natural qualities. The lesson in which we have given the results of position of planets in various houses may also be read. The results given there will also occur in the Dasha or Antardasha of these planets. Thus we find that on account of the varieties of functions performed by planets (viz. his being a natural benefice or malefic, his being a functional benefice or malefic by lordship, having his own natural characteristics and his position in a particular house), the results given by him in his Dasha or Antardasha will be many. In order, therefore, to assess the correct result all the varieties of the functions should be taken into account. In our endeavour to give as much guidance as possible in the limited space available, we give some further tips for assessing the Antardasha readings. The major Dasha of a planet last from 6 years in case of Ravi to 20 years in case of Sukra, so about the whole major period we can only say that Dasha of such and such a planet will be generally good or bad according to his standing in the horoscope. For the Antardasha we will have to be precise. While the Dasha lord will make his effects feel throughout the Dasha, but it will be the Antardasha lord who will have a real say during the period of his Antardasha according to his position. While assessing the merits of an Antardasha lord, we should study his position to see how he could act, if he was the Dasha lord. After this assessment the following principles may be followed to judge his effects.

1) If the major lord (Mahadasha or Dasja lord) is good a) and sub-lord (Antardasha lord) is also good, good effects of both the major lord and Antardasha lord will be felt, if they are mutually related. There will be mutual relation amongst the two planets where I) they occupy each others sign; II) they are in conjunction; or there is mutual aspect Amongst them; III) they are in mutual Kendra; or in Trikona position b) A good sub-lord not related to the major lord remains neutral and the effects of the major lord will only be felt. c) A bad sub-lord related to the good Dasha lord modifies the Dasha lord’s effects depending on their relative strength in the chart. d) A bad sub-lord not related, the good major lord remains neutral and major lord’s good effects only will be felt with traces of evil effects of the Antardasha or sub-lord. 2) A major lord in the house of a sub-lord becomes the latter’s tenant. As such he gets his trait changed by the sub-lord. If that sub-lord be good, good effects will be realised, but if he be bad, bad effects of the sub-lord will be felt by the native. If the major lord is also bad, very bad results may be expected. If the malefic sub-lord is weaker than the good major lord, there will be mitigation to a great extent of the evil effects of the sub-lord. 3) If only one of them aspects, the other one not reciprocating, the characteristics of the aspector should be added to the aspects and combined results should be predicted. If the aspector is the Dasha lord, his effect will be more predominant and vice-versa. 4) In the case of conjunction the effects of a more powerful planet predominate. 5) There is a view that the major lord in his own sub-period (which is always the first Antardasha) does not give his effects. Practical experience has proved this theory to be incorrect. If the major lord is good and well placed, in his Antardasha we should expect all good effects due from that planet. 6) The relative positions of the major lord and Antardasha lord are also of great importance. If they are 6, 8 and 12, the Antardasha will not be good in spite of the major and Antardasha lords both are good. When the sub-lord is in the 2nd the position is not so bad, but if it occupies the 12th house to major lord, the position will be considered bad. There is a dictum in our classical texts that Dwirdwasha (2nd and 12th) position of the majority of planets in a horoscope is not a healthy sign in a horoscope. Such a position makes the life full of struggles and ups and downs.

B) Basic

Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code is a “High level” Language. It is more than a symbolic representation of the instructions a computer can interpret. For example, the BASIC statement “PRINT” contains many computer instructions.

Booting/Bootstrap

Booting initialises a computer system by copying an operating system into the internal memory of a computer from a diskette or tape.

Data

Data refers to any information the computer processes or stores .An important distinction exists between an instruction to the computer and data the computer process. A computer distinguishes between data and instructions entirely by context. One missing piece of information can cause strange results.

136


Documentation

“Documentation” includes all written information about a piece of computer equipment of software. Your computer system manuals are documentation

File

File refers to related blocks of data or instructions stored on a disk. One complete program might be stored in a file named “PROGRAM: BAS”, for instance. One complete set of related data (i.e. check register, name and address file. Etc.) may be saved in a data file.

Floppy Disk

“Floppy Disk” refers to a flexible media which records information read or written by the computer.

Hard Disk

“Hard Disk” refers to media encased in polished metal surfaces or platters. The platters are coated with magnetic oxide. In a fixed disk the platters are permanently fixed (and sealed) within the drive; you cannot remove the medium without ruining the drive. In hard disk drivers which are not fixed, the media is encased in removable plastic cartridges.

Minifloppies

“Minifloppy” a trademark of Shugart Associates, refers to their 5 ¼” floppy diskettes. Other manufactures produce 5 ¼” floppy diskettes.

Operating system

The “Operating system” is the brains of the computer. The operating system is configured to “know” which peripheral devices are available and how to communicate with them. The operating system controls all of the equipment, bit usually (as in the case of CP/M) does not perform complicated procedures (programs do that).

Ram

Random Access Memory is the primary storage area of a computer. The information stored in RAM is lost when power is disconnected. This is one reason why CP/M must be loaded each time you turn on your computer system.

Run – Time

Sometimes modules are referred to as “run-time” routines, or “run-time code”. Another name for this is “executable code”.

137


Write Protect

You cannot add information to a write-protected disk; it can only be read. An 8” diskette writes protect notch appears on the bottom of the diskette; a minifloppy diskette is write protected by covering the notch on the right side of the diskette. The “STAT” command also write protects diskettes and files.

CHAPTER 13 BECOMING A HINDU ASTROLOGER

139


BECOMING A HINDU ASTROLOGER It takes time, study and practise. Please see our Self-Instructor below for starters and professionals as well. THE HINDU VEDIC ASTROLOGY MANUAL ANCIENT TEACHINGS The author Anders B Johansson PhD and DD has researched India’s vast philosophical ancient heritage and brings in a simplified manner the teachings of astrology as practised by Brahmins and Rishis – Sanat Kumara, the ancient of days, as he gave Kala Chakra, the science of time. You can learn to construct the 5 birth charts and follow interpretation to ascertain correct birth circumstances, sign, house, lordship, yoga’s, fixed stars, moon-sign and navamsa. You arrive at the picture of the person’s birth karma. From the soul’s past life account you now have a picture of the transfer into this life of different karmas and with the help of the Vimshottari Mahadasa system you delineate and through guided samples you will learn how to interpret the future and do time correct predictions into the future. There is a vast storehouse of wisdom and practical modern philosophy in this self instruction manual based on the ancient knowledge. Here is an extract from the Introduction: Astrology is a branch of Veda (the six systems of Hindu philosophy), with the aid of which it is possible to forecast all the past future events by considering the position of Lagna (Rising Sign) and planets at birth or at the time of putting a query. Astrology has three broad divisions, namely Siddhanta, Samhita and Hora. Siddhanta deals with astronomical side of the science, Samhita with the world events and Hora with horoscopy of human and animate objects.”

CHAPTER 15 ASHTAKAVARGA – 8 VARGAS SUBDIVISIONS OF THE ZODIAC SIGN PART 4 & HOW TO BECOME PROFICIENT ON PART 4 (SUMMARY OF THE 8 ZODIAC SUBDIVISIONS)

144


HOW TO BECOME PROFICIENT ON PART 4 ASHTAKA VARGA (SUMMARY OF 8 ZODIAC SUB-DIVISIONS) Practise and study B:V: Raman´s books and other proficient astrologer’s works. Many views will be found but a central theme is hereby expressed as a root of all systems. Through the graphics and the table demonstrations you will be able to follow the directions for getting a better understanding of part 4. You should make notes of the results in your client files to get appropriate documentation. This is the best way to get a basic understanding of parts 4, being a screen version. This program (part 4) is most commonly used by professional astrologers in direct consultation with clients for obtaining fast results required in dialogues. Its western astrological equivalent will be transits and progressions and the more modern part of horarary astrology.

ASHTAKAVARGA The uniqueness of Hindu astrology consists in the variety of methods employed for making predictions. Whether it is the Dasa system (time cycles), Gochara (transits) or Ashtakavarga (8 vargas), there is certain originality peculiar to Indian genius and not to be found either in the Chaldean or the Ptolemaic or the modern western system. The Ashtakavarga method of prediction, an exposition of which is attempted in this treatise, has been quite popular with the rank and file of Hindu astrologers. But as usual, the method is so indiscriminately employed that its practical utility is often lost sight of. Most astrological practitioners of the traditional type in India generally wind up their horoscope readings by determining longevity (Ayurdaya) according to Ashtakavarga. Their confidence in the infallibility of the Ayurdaya system according to Ashatakavarga is so great that they hardly bother to verify the results. In the interpretation of Dasas (time cycles), a comprehensive knowledge of the various principles is no doubt essential. But a correct reading of the effects is always a matter of individual skill. Similarly in interpreting a horoscope according to Ashtakavarga, the astrologer, in addition to possessing a thorough knowledge of the rules should also be capable of interpretative skill, which again is something purely individualistic. As the famous work Horamakaranda says, as a result of the progression of the seven planets from their respective radical places and from Lagna (Rising Sign), a collective factor sets in going under the name of Ashtakavarga. It is likely that a planet, say for instance the Sun, as a result of his horoscope position in a particular sign, is capable of throwing out beams of influence on certain places declared as favourable, both from his position and from the positions of other planets, so that, such beams of influence contributed by different planets may act as a catalytic agent augmenting the good effects of radical as well as transit influences. Ashtakavarga also takes into cognisance the actions and interactions of the transiting planets with regard to their radical situations (including the Lagna= Rising Sign) and by a certain manipulation of the benefic and malefic influences given rise to by such movements and measured numerically as so many units – certain important events are determined.

145


When we say Sun´s Ashtakavarga, we mean the collective factor due to the projection of positive beams with reference to himself and the other six planets and the Lagna (Rising Sign). But, the intention here is not to discuss the rationale of the Ashtakavarga system. The sages seem to have devised a numerical scheme of interpretation and timing of events, which is at once unique and capable of further development. Ashtakavarga is highly useful in making predictions. But so far as the determination of longevity is concerned, the Ashtakavarga system should not be solely relied upon for accuracy. In the majority of cases, longevity obtained on this basis is quite at variance from the actual number of years lived by the natives. The causes for the failure of Ashtakavarga may be due to either an inadequate comprehension of the principles or the inadequacy of the number of examples worked out. In Regard to the predictive utility of Ashtakavarga , classical authors have expressed different opinions. However, by a careful study of the various books bearing on this subject, we find that the Ashtakavarga is employed for: 1) Predicting the general strength of planets and houses (Bhavas). 2) Anticipating certain important life events. 3) Forecasting transits results (Gochara), and 4) Determining longevity (Ayurdaya). Planets occupy Houses (Bhavas). The relative strengths of Houses (Bhavas) can no doubt be found numerically according to Sripathi and Kesava Paddhati involving laborious calculations. The Ashtakavarga, on the other hand, dispenses with cumbersome methods and enables us to attempt some sort of a snapshot assessment of the strength of a House (Bhava). Thus if Mars is in Lagna (Rising Sign) and the sign which has reference to the Rising Sign obtained a certain optimum number of benefic points in the Ashtakavarga of Mars, the Rising Sign becomes strengthened and capable of producing good results. Ashtakavarga essentially aims at a generalised assessment of vitality of a horoscope and therefore has its own limitations. Thus if Venus is in the second house, which has reference to Taurus, and in the Ashtakavarga of Venus, the benefic points number 7, or 8, then Venus becomes fully capable of conferring the maximum results due to his location as well as lordship. In order to explain the Ashtakavarga principles we shall take the horoscope of a person born on October 16, 1918 at 2 pm (L:M.T.) at Bangalore, India, which for the sake of convenience, we shall call as the Standard Horoscope. The following are the planetary Rasi (Natal chart) and Navamsa (Husband & Wife) positions.

The total of benefice points of all planets will be 337 for any horoscope. This is constant. In the Standard Horoscope, the Sun is in Virgo. Therefore his benefic places from himself (in his own Ashtakavarga) will be Virgo (1st) Libra (2nd) Sagittarius (4th) Pisces (7th) Aries (8th) Taurus (9th) Gemini (10th) and Cancer 11th). This can be represented diagrammatically as per Chart No 1. It is the practice to mark the benefic place by a zero (0) (or bindu) and the malefic place by a horizontal stroke (-) (or rekha).

All the 8 Charts pertaining to a planet can be reduced to a single diagram (Chart No 9, below) By adding together all zeroes (or bindus) in Aries in each chart pertaining to the planet concerned, we shall get a number representing the total number of zeroes (bindus) in Aries. Similarly other signs have to be dealt with. In the Standard Horoscope, the combined or collective Ashtakavargas of the Sun and other planets (Charts 9 to 15) can be represented thus: The total zeroes (bindus) in each sign can be put in figures instead of in zeroes. 5

SARVASHTAKAVARGA In casting the Sarvashtakavarga chart, Ashtakavargas of all the planets are considered. Add together the zeroes (bindus) contained in the sign Aries in each diagram. The aggregate will be the figure in the sign Aries in Sarvashtakavarga. Similarly the aggregate of the zeroes (bindus) in Taurus and other signs should be obtained. The addition should be carried out before applying the two reductions explained below. In the Standard Horoscope, the otal of the zeroes (bindus) in Aries in the Bhinnashtakavargas (Charts 9 to 15) of the different planets is 33. (Sun´s Ashtakavarga 5 + Moon´s 5+Mars`4= Mercury´s 4 =Jupiter´s 3 +Venus 7+ Saturn´s 5 = total 33. In a similar manner, figures in the different signs in the Sarvashtakavarga should be obtained.

If the calculations are correctly done, the total zeroes (bindus) of all the twelve signs in the Sarvashtakavarga will be 337.

REDUCTIONS The figures in the Bhinnashtakavarga of each planet (Charts 9 to 15) are subjected to two types of reduction, viz; Trikona and Ekadhipatya. (Please se below). These reduced figures are famed use of both for the purpose of longevity determination and for making certain predictions in the birth horoscope. First the Trikona reduction is carried out and then the corrected figures are further reduced by the Ekadhipatya reduction. TRIKONA REDUCTION In a horoscope, there are four groups of Trikona Rasis (trinal signs) viz; 1) Aries, Leo and Sagittarius; 2) Taurus and its trines Virgo and Capricorn; 3) Gemini, Libra and Aquarius; and 4) Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces: a) When the same number of zeroes (bindus) or figures is not found in a trinal group (e.g. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), subract the least of the three figures from the other two and retain the remainders. b) No reduction is called for, if there is no figure in one of the signs of the group. c) If there are no figures in two of the signs, then the figure in the 3rd must also be eliminated. d) If the figures in the three signs of a group are equal, then all the figures in that entire group should be eliminated.

152


There is of course some difference of opinion amongst classical writers as regards the reduction or elimination of figures, but we have given the most approved method. Taking the Sun´s Ashtakavarga (Chart 9) in the Standard Horoscope: The figures in Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are respectively 5, 4 and 5. According to rule a), subtract 4 (the least number) from each of the other two and the resulting numbers will be 1, 0, 1 respectively. Similarly in the second group of signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), the figures are 3, 4, and 0. Rule b) is applicable and the reduced figures will be 3, 4 and 0. In the 3rd group of signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) in the Sun´s Ashtakavarga, the figures are 5, 3, 5, Here Rule a) is applicable and the reduced numbers will be 2, 0, 2. After the I reduction, the Sun´s Ashtakavarga will be as follows:

1

2 0 1

Chart No 17 Sun´s Ashtakavarga After I Reduction 1 0

0 4

Thus the I reduction should be carried out for all the planets. EKADHIPATYA REDUCTION The figures obtained above after the I reduction will have to undergo a second reduction due to what is called Ekadhipatya or ownership of two signs by a single planet. Excepting Cancer and Leo, the other ten are Ekadhipatya signs. Therefore the second reduction for elimination of figures, obtained after the I reduction, is to be applied only to signs other than Cancer and Leo. The process involved is as follows: I No reduction is called for a) if there are planets in both the signs owned by a planet or b) if there is no figure in one of the two signs, whether occupied or unoccupied. II If one of the two signs owned by the same planet is occupied and the other not, a) if the figure in the former is greater than that in the latter, eliminate the latter; b) if the figure in the former is less than that in the latter, then make the latter equal to the former; c) if the figures in both the signs are equal, eliminate the figures in the latter. III If both the signs are not occupied, a) if the figures in both are equal, eliminate both; b) if the figures are not equal, make the larger equal to the smaller. Taking the Sun´s Ashtakavarga in the Standard Horoscope: Aries ans Scorpio: One of the signs (Scorpio) is occupied by Mars and the other (Aries) not. Therefore eliminate the figures in Aries (II c).

153


Taurus and Libra No figure in Libra and hence no reduction (I b). Gemini and Virgo: No reduction because both the signs are occupied – Gemini by Jupiter and Virgo by the Sun and Venus (I a). Pisces and Sagittarius: Both the signs are not occupied and the figures are the same. Therefore both the figures should be eliminated (III a). Capricorn and Aquarius: Capricorn has no figure, therefore no reduction is called for (I b). The Ashtakavarga of the Sun after II reduction (Ekadhipatya Sodhana) stands as follows on the next page:

MANDALA SODHANA Expunge from figures in the different Rasis (Signs) in the Sarvashtakavarga (Chart No 16) multiples of 12. Then apply to the remaining zeroes (bindus), the Trikona and Ekadhipatya and obtain the reduced Sarvashtakavarga. Deduucting multiples of 12 from the figures in the Standard Horoscope, we get the following corrected Sarvashtakavarga Chart:

REKHA SARVASHTAKAVARGA The total number of benefic and malefic points in a sign is always 56. Therefore if the zeroes (bindus) (benefic points) in a particular sign (Rasi) is subtracted from 56, the reminder represents rehkas or malefic units. In the Sarvashtakavarga (Chart No 16) of the Standard Horoscope, take for instance Aries. It has 33 zeroes (bindus). The number of Rekhas (malefic points) will be 56 – 33= 23.

PRASTHARA ASHTAKAVARGA We have hitherto learnt how to cast Bhinnashtakavargas of the different planets, the combined Ashtakavargas of all planets and the reduction of the zeroes (bindus) by the process of Trikona and Ekadhipatya. The next in importance is the diagrammatic representation of spreading-out of the benefic points (zeroes/bindus) contributed or donated by each planet in respect of each Ashtakavarga. The benefic points (zeroes/bindus) contributed by each of the planets are isolated so that while predicting Transit Results (Gochara) or interpreting Time Cycles (Dasas) or analysing Houses (Bhavas) the exact period or nature of effect can be clearly located. The tabular representation of the spreading-out or isolation of the benefic points, given out by each planet, is called “Prasthara Chakra�. According to classical writers, draw east to west 9 lines and north to south 13 lines and in this chakra (diagram) containing 96 houses, enter the points contributed by each planet (before reduction) in the descending order of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon and Rising Sign (Lagna, Ascendant).

The Sun is in Virgo. Therefore the apreading-out starts from Virgo. In Table II, the zeroes (bindus) in the horizontal row against each planet indicate the auspicious places (in the Sun´s Ashtakavarga) from the Sun and from other planets. The zeroes (bindus) in the vertical rows are those contributed by the different planets reckoned in the order of their orbits from the earth. For example the total figure in Virgo (in Sun´s Bhinnashtakavarga) is 4 and these four zeroes (bindus) are contributed by Saturn, Mars, Sun and Mercury. The Moon, Jupiter, Venus and the Rising Sign (Lagna, Ascendant) have not made any contribution. The Prasthara Chakras have to be prepared for each planet.

CHAPTER 17 INDEX

of Ayurvedic physicians came to know of it and its secret and used in to diagnose all kinds of diseases. Subsequently, it went over to Arabia, Persia, Greece and other places in Europe. Praxogoras of Leos was the first who gained distinction in the West by adopting this method of diagnosis and the last person was Galen. This Subject is no doubt as interesting as it is intricate; and a careful study of Tamil Siddhars' science is bound to enlighten the minds of the people, as to the excellence, accuracy and profundity of this science of pulse. It was only in Siddhars' time that this science had reached perfection. There are innumerable works on this subject written by different authors in Tamil among the following may be mentioned viz., Agastiya, Tirumular, Siva Vakkiyar, Yugimuni, Terayar, Punnakisr, Sudamuni, Mechamuni, Pulippani, Sattamuni, Bogar, Vara Rishi, Ramadevar, Idaikkadar, Konganava etc. The medical treatises by these sages contain so many honestly recorded factors simple, short and perspicuous that they have been justly estimated as the most practically useful and valuable acquisitions to medical science.

In ancient times, there were no appliances like the modern stethoscope, sphygmograph, endoscope etc., for extending sensual perceptions into the interior of the body; nor were there apparatuses and contrivances for the test of urine, faeces, sputum (phlegm) etc., to enable the physicians to observe, record and compare the phenomena of health and disease to such a degree as to bring medicine neared and neared to perfection, to deserve the name of what is now called 'science', the physicians in those days had to depend almost entirely on pulse in the matter of diagnosing diseases; and in this, they were preeminently successful. The word pulse means the beating of an artery felt with the tip of the finger or fingers at the wrist; its rate and character go to indicate a person's condition of health. It is also understood as the beating, throbbing or the rythmical dilation of the arteries as the blood is propelled along them by the contraction of the heart in the living body. The term pulse in medical practice is usually applied to the beat or throb felt in the radial artery at the wrist, though it may be felt over the temporal, carotid, lunar, bracial, femoral and other arteries. The Science of Pulse is no doubt based on the theory of Tridosha ; and so it cannot be easily understood unless one thoroughly acquainted with the working ofthe three humours in the human system. There are innumerable arteries spread out from head to foot in the human body, and amongst them pulse is felt in twenty-four; and out ofthese, the one in the right hard and other in the right foot are considered consequential, reliable and important. According to Tirumular's work on pulse, the following constituent parts forming the fundamental principles in the human body seem to play an important role in variations of pulse on account of their interpenetrating nature. 1. The ten vital airs. 2. The three nerve-channels Idakala etc. 3. The six nerve-plexuses. 4. The three regions of the body named the Sun, Moon, and the Fire. Pulse is sub-divided as follows according to the nature action and other characteristics, viz: 1. Frequent Pulse - one which is faster in rate than normal 2. Goat - Leap Pulse - irregular and bounding pulse 3. Strong Pulse - one that is hard or wiry 4. Weak Pulse - a pulse with no strength 5. Cordy Pulse - a tense and firm pulse 6. Full Pulse - one with a copious volume of blood 7. Hard Pulse - one which is characterised by very high tension 8. Slow Pulse - one which is abnormally slow in rate 9. Dropped beat Pulse or Intermittent Pulse - one in which various beats are dropped


10. Undulating Pulse - a pulse giving the sensation of successive waves 11. Normal Pulse - pulse beating at a normal rate 12. Sharp Pulse - a pulse in which the artery is suddenly and markedly distended 13. Feeble Pulse - a pulse in which the force of the beat is very feeble 14. Formicant Pulse - a small, nearly imperceptible pulse 15. Wiry Pulse - a small tense pulse 16. Collapsing Pulse - a jerky pulse with a full expansion, followed by a sudden collapse 17. Unequal Pulse - a pulse in which some of the beats are strong and others weak 18. Decurtate or Mouse-tail Pulse - a pulse which gradually tapers away in strength 19. Abrupt or quick Pulse - a pulse which strike the finger rapidly It is so difficult and incomprehensible that many are ignorant of it even to-day. The results is that none can be found attempting it in practice with perfect success. There is no royal road to the acquisition of the knowledge of pulse. There are no doubt certain rules and hints for the guidance of physicians; but a mere study of them will not enable any of them to acquire a practical knowledge of pulse. Success in the art depends on experience and practice and that much more on Spiritual knowledge. It is done by pressing with the physician's three fingers (index, middle, and ring) of his right hand, at a place two fingers in length just below the root of the thumb i.e., a little above the wrist. The physician should feel the pulse three times by holding and letting loose the hand of the patient and then diagnose the disease with great care and caution. According to the most commonly accepted view, the natural order in which is the forces ofthe three humours are indicated and are to be observed is 1) the pulses showing wind (Vayu) in the first place above the wrist is felt underneath the fore-finger 2) that of bile (pitta), below the middle finger and 3) that Phlegm (Kapha), the third, under the ring-finger, c.f. The three kinds of Doshas (humours) are ascertained from the three kinds of movements of the pulseswift, middle and slow, felt by the pressure of touch of the three fingers on the radial artery. Examination of the pulse furnishes the best criterion of the phenomena and progress of a disease. It also helps a physician to force-tell the attack of a disease with its prognosis long before it has taken possession of the patient's system just in the same way as a chiromancer would do with regard to events before they actually come to pass by examining the streaks of the palm. The radial artery at the wrist which is usually chosen, shows the precise character of the pulse. In feeling the pulse, the physician has to note its impressibility, frequency, regularity, size and the different impressions it produces through the fingers. The pulse no doubt signifies whether a particular disease is due to Vayu (air), or Pitta (heat) or Kapha (water) or whether it is due to the influence of any two combined or whether it is due to the concerted action of all the three; and whether the disease is curable or incurable. The physician as pointed out already, must be endowed with a spiritual perception without which it is impossible for him to arrive at a correct diagnosis ofthe exact nature of the inner working of complicated and obstinate diseases by simply feeling the pulse in accordance with the rules and principles of the science. It is his observation, thoughtfulness and imaginative penetration into the .

deep recesses of the patient's organism that will enable him to form a true estimate of his patient's condition. If he cannot penetrate into the spirit of the patient., no success can be achieved; and for real success, meditation and concentration are necessary. The nature and condition of the pulse in different diseases are fully described in the Siddhars' science, the extraordinary pulse-rates that go to indicate incurable or chronic diseases; approaching death, the prognosis diseases etc, are all well explained therein. The general explanation regarding the cause of pulse is that it is due to the dilatation of the arterial walls which travel in the form of a wave from the larger to smaller arteries and that the differences in the beating of pulse are due to those humours in the blood in circulation;


but according to Siddhars' science it is also due to something else which is explained already as arising from the motive powers of the three vital currents. The Nature of Pulse:- The Physician should carefully study the nature of the beating which he feels under his fingers; as the beats are described in an inteUigible manner in various ways according to the force, rate and movement by comparing them with the movements of those of animals like horses, snakes, frogs, etc, and birds like peacock, fowl etc. The idea of this comparison should be well-borne in mind at the time of feeling the patient's pulse for purposes of corroboration.

Diseases and their cure Disease, according to modem science is only a departure from a state of health and more frequently a kind of disturbance of the healthiness of the body to which any particular case of sickness is assigned. According to Siddhars' Philosophy, diseases in man do not originate in himself, but from the influences which act upon him. As already stated, man is compared to the world because the elements that exist in the world exist in man as well; and therefore any change in the elementary condition of the external world has its corresponding change in the human organism. There is the feeling of oneness between the external and the internal world of man; and it is upon this oneness that the doctrine of Humoural Pathology i.e., the theory of Tridosha is based. This may occur through different causes viz:

I. Derangement of the three humours. Air, bile and phlegm are considered the three supports of the human system because they are the three fundamental principles in the composition of the human body. When the harmony of the said humours get deranged owing to a relative increase or decrease of one or more of the principal humours, disease or death will be the result which would be well-indicated by the pulse. II. Astral Influences. All the influences that come from the Sun, the planets and the starts act on human beings. If evil elements exist in the sphere of one's soul, they attract, such astral influences as will develop diseases. Astral influences do not act directly upon the physical bodies of men and animals, but upon their vital essences in which all the elements are contained; and this is what is called in Tamil as 'Graha Dosha', Children are more liable to such diseases than adults. Moon exercises a vary bad influence over diseases in general, especially during the period of New Moon; and it is for this reason that patients in our country ailing from serious illness are afraid of its virility during the approach of the New Moon or the full Moon; it may bring about at times, even lunacy, paralysis or other brain affections, stimulation of sexual passions, injurious dreams, dropsy, hysteria, etc. Mars causes women's suffering from want of blood and nervous strength. A conjunction of the moon with other planets such as Venus, Mars, etc., may make Her influence still more injurious. These influences from the planes are fully dealt with under Astrology. Diseases may often occur without any assignable cause; and sometimes people get cured without the administration of any medicine. Such happenings are attributed to the planetery changes of whose action upon the human system. Therapeutic Science is unable to throw any light upon.

III. Poisonous substances. Impure and injurious elements enter the human system in various ways such as through food, drink, inhalation or absorption by the skin of poisonous air or vapour and so on. There are impurities of various kinds of all about us; and what may be healthy for one person may be injurious to another, according to the astral influences


on the person concerned and to the hidden virtues and vices contained in things in general. Rheumatism, gout, dropsy, and many other diseases are often caused by the accumulation of poisonous elements.

1. X Psychological causes. A disease state of the body is often the result ofthe diseased state ofthe mind. ("Men's sana in corpore sano"). This class of diseases includes all evils are caused by passions, evil desires, disordered thoughts and morbid imaginations. Such physiological changes in the physical body, as for instance-shame causes a blush in the face and fear produces paleness; fear causes diarrhoea; anger or envy, jaundice, Violent emotions which produce hysteria, miscarriage, apoplexy, spasms, malformations of the fetus etc. also come under this class. All diseases in so far as they are not directly due to external mechanical causes, are to mental conditions. The majority of diseases are due to moral causes; and so the treatment in such cases ought to be of a moral kind, and should be instructional. In the application of such remedies, care should be taken to see that they correspond to those states of mind which we wish to induce in the patient. Many are the diseases caused by the abuse of psychological powers resulting in boils or blisters all over the body, atrophy of organs, derangement of the mind, loss of vitality, inflammation or enlargement of the kidneys, and so on.

1. X Spiritual causes. Morbid imaginations may create hunger and thirst, produce abnormal secretions and give rise to diseases. The power of the true Spiritual Will (Ens Spiritual) is known only to a few advanced Occult students. It is a power which may affect the whole body and product or cure all kinds of diseases. He who has a strong Will power will have strong Spiritual power. Evil influence exercised by one person may affect another not only when his body, because the forces created in the sphere of one's mind may be projected by powerful suggestions into the mental sphere of another through the medium of an image of wax set up or used for the purpose of attracting the evil spell; and this is a common thing known in the practice of Sorcery, Witchcraft, Black-art, etc. X Diseases originating from the soul. This includes all diseases originating from the above mentioned five causes. All diseases are no doubt the effects of previously existing causes. Some originate from natural and others from spiritual causes. Spiritual causes are those that have not been created by Man during his present life, but what he had created during the formed existence; and this is what we call in the popular language chronic diseases or off-shoots of Karma. For such causes there is no remedy, but that of waiting patiently until the evil force is exhausted and the law of Karma has had its effect by due adjustment. Even if the just retribution for our sins could be evaded at one time, it could only be postponed; and the evil would return again with accumulated interest and increased force. If the patient's time for redemption comes, then will he find an efficient physician through whom his soul will get the needed gentle relief. Cure of diseases: Modern Science has only two kinds of cures viz. Medicinal and Surgical; but Indian Science, while accepting both the kinds, contemplate even other kinds of healing such as Pranic healing, Mental healing, Spiritual healing, Thought force healing, Suggestive healing, Metaphysical Healing, Magnetic cure, Water cure, Colour cure, Insufflation etc. all physical. The philosophy of thus curing diseases is quite different from what is really understood by the Westerners. All influences, terrestrial and astral converge upon man; and they are invisible just like heat, light and electricity; but how can a physician recognise the manner in which they act and still less prevent or cure diseases that are caused by such actions, if he is not acquainted with the


influences exercised by forces in the astral plane.

Every metal and every plant possessed certain qualities that attract corresponding planetary influences; and unless one knows the influence of the stars and the conjunction to planets and the qualities of drugs selected for the purpose, then, one wiD not be in a position to know what remedy to give for attracting such influences as may act beneficially upon the patient. Our physicians pay no attention to the positions of the planets and so they seldom cure several aliments. To cure diseases is an art which cannot be acquired by the mere reading of books but which must be learnt through experience. Neither Academies and Institutions, nor Colleges and Schools can turn out physicians for curing diseases but they can only grant diplomas or titles and turn out doctors which they are actually not. A theory which is thus not confirmed by practical work should be abandoned. Modern methods of treating and curing diseases are to a great extent looked upon and employed as if they were means by which man by his cleverness tries to cheat Nature out of Her dues and acts against laws of Nature with impunity. To many persons calling themselves doctors or physicians, these are merely systems for making money to fill their pockets with and gratifying their greed. Many hundreds of years ago, the Siddhars who were the greatest Philosophers and Scientists of their age, have spoken elaborately all about the qualifications of a true physician; explained how physician should conduct themselves towards their fellowmen and have also criticised their untoward behaviour towards their patients. It is therefore for the readers to judge, whether or not the same logic and principles find just the same application to-day because the physicians have entirely deserted the path indicated by Nature and built up an artificial system convenient to themselves. It is clearly stated in the Siddhars' Science that a physician who has no faith and consequently has no spiritual power in him cannot be anything but failure, even though he might have graduated from all the Medical Colleges or Academies of the world and knew by heart the contents of all the medical books that have been printed and published up-to-date. The character of the physician may act more powerfully upon patients, that a strong belief, undoubted faith and deep love for the physician, conduce much toward their health even more perhaps than the medicine itself so much so that they would be able even to change the qualities of the body of the sick especially when the patient responses implicit confidence in the physician.

A powerful faith and WiD are certainly bound to cure where doubt has failed. There should be entire harmony between the physician and his patient. Wonderful cures may be effected by changing internal causes from which the outward effects grow; and this can only be done by spiritual knowledge and power. Therefore a physician should have true knowledge, and not merely plenty of information gathered from books or other sources; while a patient on the other hand should have a certain amount of faith and vitality without which no cure can be effected.

What constitutes a good physician Writers of antiquity have handed down to DS the qnatities which they considered requisite for constituting the good physician and the following is the extract of a translation from Agastiyar 500: “He must be a person of strict veracity and of the highest sobriety and decorum, having sexual intercourses with no women except his own wife. He ought to be thoroughly skilled in all the commentaries on Medicine and be otherwise a man of good sense and benevolence; his heart must be charitable, his temper calm, and his constant study should be how to be useful and to do good to the public” “When a sick person expresses himself peevishly or hastily, good physician is not thereby to be provoked to impatience; he should be mild and courageous and should cherish a cheerful hope of being able to save his patient’s life, he should be frank, communicative, impartial and liberal; and yet ever rigid extracting an adherence to whatever regimen or rules he may think it necessary to enjoin upon the patient.


The physician who aspires for success in his profession is expected to treat the poor free of charge, to maintain human sympathy and to be charitably disposed towards the public and above all to be taintless spiritualist.

The Science of Tamil Medicine, unlike other systems, is a peculiarly complex system of sciences as it will be found that it is purely intended for adepts among men and not for the ordinary; and that is why they had included in the works of medicine Alchemy, Philosophy, Magic, Yoga, etc., with a view to elevate them in the long run to the level of spiritualists; and it is also the reason why this science expects every one who practises it to be far above the level of ordinary mankind. There are numerous works on Siddha Medicine containing in every one of them the peculiar distinctive qualities that are expected of physicians on whom rests the welfare of the entire mankind. The following is a summary of those characteristics that constitute a true physician: 1. The Physician ought to be an Alchemist or the son of an Alchemist. He should understand the Chemistry of Life; and must have every natural qualification for his Occupation. The pseudo-physician bases his art only on books; but the genuine physician depends for success on his knowledge and skill. He should exercise his art not for his own sake or benefit, but for the sake of his patients; and his power should rest not merely upon medicine but also on Spiritual Truth.

1. A physician should be a philosopher acquainted with the laws of external Nature. A knowledge of Nature is the foundation ofthe Science of Medicine; and it is taught by the four great departments of science viz., Alchemy, Physical Science, Philosophy and Astronomy. 2. He should be an Astronomer; and this means he should know the mental sphere wherein man lives, will all its stars and constellations; the influences of the seasons of heat and cold, of dryness and moisture, oflight and darkness and so on, as also the organism of Man. A physician who knows nothing about Cosmology will know little about diseases. He should know what exists in Nature and upon earth, what lives in the five elements and how they act upon men. 3. He should be well versed in physical science, should know the action of medicines and learn by his own experience how to regulate the diet of the patient, the ordinary course of a disease and its premonitory symptoms. 4. A True Physician should be able to do his won thinking, and should not mechanically employ the thoughts of others. He should be the product of Nature and not of mere speculation or imagination. 5. A Physician who knows nothing else about his patient but what the latter has told him, knows very little indeed. 6. He should not depend too much on the accomplishments of the animal intellect in his brain; he should listen to the Divine Voice which emanates from his soul and learn to understand the same. 7. He should have a knowledge which cannot be acquired by reading books, being a gift of Divine Wisdom. 8. He should be wedded to his art as a man is to his wife and should love it with all his heart and soul for its own sake and not for the purpose of making money or realising his own ambition. 9. He must have the faculty of intuition, i.e., a knowledge of his own and not a knowledge borrowed or purchased from others. 10. He should try to relieve his patient from suffering, but on no account delay his treatment for extracting money. 11. He should not venture to treat a patient without arriving at a correct diagnosis, also he will be committing a great sin which will not only affect him but also visit his future generations.


Although Chemistry has come to be known as an exact science within a comparatively recent period, yet its origin dates back to the earliest times of philosophical study. The word 'Chemistry' is closely associated with that of Alchemy. In a book on "Chemistry is Modern Life", from the pen ofthe renowned Swedish Chemist named Svante Auguste, the author has done ample justice to the claims of India as the land in which the beginnings of Chemistry as a Science can first be traced in the history of human civilization. In India, Chemistry had been know as a science auxiliary to Medicine which was practised openly after the beginning of the Chemistry era in the Buddhistic monasteries where the priests were found engaged in curing all sorts of diseases; and they believed not only in a specific compound but also in the utterance of a specific religious formula considered necessary for the physician's healing power; and it is thus that chemistry took a religious impress. Chemistry as defined now, means the science which relates to the peculiar properties of matter an of the elementary substances, the proportions in which the elements combine, the ways and means of their separation, the laws which govern and affect them and all the connected and allied phenomina; but the simpler definition is-it is the Anatomy of natural bodies by fire. In the Siddha System, Chemistry had been found developed into a Science auxiliary to medicine and Alchemy. It was found useful in the preparation of medicines for curing all sorts of suffering, spiritual as well as corporeal and also in transmutation of baser metals into gold. The knowledge of plants and minerals was of a very high order. Siddhar's presentation of Chemistry is masterly so far as it has gone, but unfortunately it is fragmentary, If one really wants to gather knowledge and collect materials for research in the field of ancient chemistry, he can find all that he wants only in the works of Tamil Siddhars; and no such treatises on the subject could be found elsewhere dealing so exhaustively as found therein; and moreover the Siddhars were the greatest scientists both almost all the branches of science.

It is necessary here to allude to the address of Dr. P. C. Ray at the Madras Medical College on 0212-1926 on Ancient Hindu Chemistry. "In the economic interests of the country, it would be will to develop such a simple and cheap system as in the ancient past and find supplemental counter parts on Indian economic scale instead of on the western luxuriant scale. India cannot stand any longer expenditure on a large scale on buildings and costly apparatuses and the like; and so we must adopt ourselves to methods and measures having regard to the financial possibilities of the country." Several were the minerals known to and made use of by the siddha physicians in their medicines; and a list ofthem will be found in this volume under the heading (natural substance). The siddha physicians were also well acquainted with the process of obtaining metals from their ores. When at long intervals, by merely turning over the abstruse and moth eaten pages of some of the Siddha works, one is sure to be struck with awe and admiration to find therein mention of processes like calcination of metals, preparation of quint essences, extracts and essences from minerals and other natural bodies or substances preparations of mercury such as animated mercury, pills for flying in the air, calcinated powders such as red-oxide and Chunnam with the marvellous property of transmuting metals, preparation of caustic alkali from the ashes of plants and several other preparations of medicine with high potency and power, some of them even capable of rejuvenating the human system, Do not all these go to signify the fact that the knowledge of Siddhars in Chemistry taken together with that of Alchemy(infra) should have been for superior to and in advance ofthe so called scientific knowledge dominant at the present day? One who has made a special study of the Siddhars Science will naturally come to the conclusion that it is the fountain head of all knowledge and sciences.


We also find application in Medicine of so many chemical products of their times proving that they were of course the first to prepare valuable medicines by chemical or other extraordinary methods unknown to the present day. The process of preparing Seynir and distilling several kinds of acids were not unknown to them since the distilled products had been to them of much help in using as solvents. Unfortunately, the Siddhars Science Terminology is difficult and highly technical in character and what is even deplorable, they are not fully expressive.

There knowledge of poisons also was not in any way inferior; it had been very exhaustive and surpassing as seen from the description of the properties of poisons furnished below. According to their science, poisons are divided into two main classes, viz: Natural or Native and Artificial or Synthetic, each of which is further sub-divided into 32 kinds making up total of 64 kinds. The following are a few of the several instances showing in detail the several classifications and preparations contemplated Siddhas works; and these will not convince the re readers of the high proficiency, unparalleled knowledge and uncommon development which the siddhars had attained in this branch of science from very ancient times and even at such a remote period as that when Europe was completely immersed in ignorance and barbarism. Calx or Calcined Oxide, red-oxide, carbonate, etc., prepared from chemical salts, mercury, sulphur, arsenic zinc, vermilion, corrosive sublimate, sal-ammoniac, bichlorid of mercury, etc. Cleansing process of metals like lead, copper iron, mercury, etc., and compounds like orpiment, salammoniac, borax, vermilion, corrosive sublimate, sub-chloride of mercury, etc. The Siddha System which was in vogue in Southern India long before the Aryan period, had fallen into disuse; and consequently a major portion of the Siddha works was either destroyed or last for want of sufficient encouragement. Laser generations could not take it up in right earnest without State aid, as at the time of East India Company, almost all the Indian Chemical Works and factories in various places were ordered to be closed down on the ground that the preparations were crude and dangerous, but really with a view t encourage and promote Western Medicine. Subsequently, the passing of the poisons Act gave the final death-below especially to the siddha system dealing entirely with medicines prepared with metals and metallic poisons and this gave rise t the practice of Ayurveda in South India. It is still more regrettable to note that nor research work was taken up in this direction even during the time of the Asiatic researches or even subsequently. Countless Chinese priests came to India and studied Tamil Medicine of whom Bogar and Pullippani are to be remembered specially. Ramadevar also learnt the Siddha system of medicine and propagated it in several countries such as Arabia, Egypt and so on. These chief articles of import in those days from China into India will go to show not only the commercial relations that existed between the two countries, but also the close similarly of and relationship between the two systems of medicines as is apparent from the use of their drugs in India in the preparations of Tamil Medicines, as a substitute for indigenous drugs. That chemical knowledge ought to have been transferred from India to the accidental countries is very plain from the fact that Siddhars like Bogar, Rama Devar alias Jacob and others, had visited Arabia, Turkey, China and other places spreading the knowledge as they went along; one this has already been touched upon before.

Alchemy That Alchemy has app6ed to the imagination or Man from Centuries is evident from the prominent


part it has played in the ancient science and form legends of the past. In India, unlike other countries, its origin, growth and development are interwoven with a phase of religious activity. It is regarded as a Divine and Sacred Science and Art enveloped in mystery and could only be approached with reference, faith and due piety. Although no one seems to have ever witnessed any person effecting conversion of inferior metals into gold, still the idea which had taken a firm hold of the imagination of many would never leave them even now, on account of the man's innate avarice and desire to become rich. Many are the families that have been ruined on account of this mad thirst for making gold; and therefore, its has been thought necessary to deal with the subject somewhat elaborately so as to put all on the alert as to the false notions enshrouding the subject. It is a science by which things may be decomposed and recomposed, and their essential nature changed, raised higher or transmuted into one another. According to Tamil Siddhar's Science, it is the grand touchstone of natural wisdom; and it is purely of a Spiritual Origin; and hence for one To be an Alchemist, he should necessarily be a Spiritualist. Therefore, the employment of strong will, benevolence, charity, and above all purity of mind are the essential qualification of an Alchemist. Like a born physician, he should be a born alchemist, taking birth at a particular constellation of stars, according t his former Karma. Which again only means what was left undone or left done imperfectly in the former birth is bound to be accomplished or completed perhaps in the present birth. As it is an art not to be practised for material advantages, it is not intended for materialists who can never expect any fruitful result in their attempts. Siddhars have written most profoundly and with utmost critical accuracy, Yet obscurely; but they all describe the thing sought for indirectly. Some say they are forbidden to reveal the process; while others have declared it plainly and intelligibly leaving out some little points which they have kept for themselves. The different parts of the magunam opus have to be found our by a comparison of the works of several authors -- one of them describes the materials, another, their preparations, a third, their calcinations, a fourth, the rules etc., for regulating heat and so on. This arrangement is one of the most serious obstacles in the way of understanding alchemical processes in addition to the many other difficulties that have been thrown in the way with the set purpose of concealing the art, aim and processes and thwarting the attempts of the uninitiated. In the first place, the alchemists have deliberately made use of an elaborated system of signs for "'

materials, astrological signs. Sun and Moon, and so on, to indicate the seven metals. In addition to these, there are signs for every important substance known to them and also for various pieces of apparatus employed by them in common use. A vocabulary of words was also made use of, each representing an alchemist's ideas quite different from its meaning in our ordinary speech as for

""'

instance the three salts fetus three months old; an unctuous substance covering the skin of the tetus; liquor amni; alchemy etc. Unless a student is inspired with a genuine and dauntless enthusiasm, this technology is bound to deter him from advancing further in the study of this art. Siddhars have thus, enshrouded their operations with symbolism; and have given their materials fantastic names so as to conceal their identity from those outside the mystic cult. Even the symbols are unfortunately not employed with a uniform signification. It is to the credit of the Siddhars that they never sold their secrets; but were always ready to communicate them gratuitously to a chosen few whom they deemed to be worthy recipient. But here also, it has to be observed that they never communicated the whole of an operation to anybody at anyone time and at anyone place; and the same caution was invariably observed throughout in their works even as it was the case with alchemical writers. Even adepts in that science held its secrets inviolate and did not associate with any but their trusted collegues. It is not even definitely known what methods they employed in the science and what raw materials they chiefly used -- whether of mineral, animal or vegetable origin. The Siddhars were also aware of the several alchemical operations divided onto several processes


such as - clacination, sublimation, distillation, dissolution, fusion, separation, conjunction or combination. coagalation, cibation, fermentation, exaltation, i.e., the action or process of refining gold, fixation, i.e., the action or process of refining gold, fixation, i.e., bringing to the condition of being nonvolatile, i.e., to the state of resisting the action of fire purification, incineration of metals, animation or vivification, fabrication, liquification, extraction and so on. Some modern scientists and pharmaceutical chemists boast of having discovered some of the above processes under different circumstance.

That they were very much interested in the mineral side of Alchemy is evidenced from the fact that medicines prepared from minerals and salts were often freely used in this art and that Mercury occupied the central place in Alchemy. 'Muppu' was chief believed in as a Universal Salt for calcining metals and other metallic compounds and as such compounded in all medicines. Even the caustic alkali preparation from Fuller's earth played an important role; and whenever this alkali acted too strongly, it was generally moderated by the addition of sour-gruel (acetic acid). The Siddhars were also aware of the mystic process of killing a metal which means depriving a metal of its characteristic physical properties such as its colour, lustre etc; and a list of such agents are already given under 'chemistry' (supra). Mercury is said to be Siva's generative principle and its efficacy extolled when it has been subjected six times to the process of killing. Many are the volumes written by Siddhars; some of them original and genuine while others of later day production, probably written by their followers. Some people are inclined to think or are led t believe that the later generations took up the visionary and fantastical side of the older alchemy, compiled mystical trash into books and fathered them on Agastya, Konganava, Sattaimuni and other great alchemical writers. Even the style employed in those books, is a farrago of mystical metaphors, full of technical terms and code words without any clue whatever to their interpretation. Having dealt so elaborately with this subject, it is now our purpose to know what it is that turns or transmutes baser metals into gold. it is well known that al substances spring from some,primordial matter called by so many terms--the Muppu of Siddhars, the Protyl (of Sir William Crooke), Travisa (of

Bernad) and the Primum ens (of Paracelus); and all these indicate the same. All philosophers agree that, is the first matter is found, we may proceed without much difficulty Where is it to be found from is then the question? The answer is that it is found in ourselves. Than how to draw or attract the secret matter of the stone out of us? Not by any common and easy means, surely! The secret is - our soul has the power to do it, when the body is free from any pollution and the heart void of malice and offence. The soul is them a free agent and has the power to act spiritually and magically upon any matter whatsoever, and, therefore, the first matter, i.e., the prima materia of the lapis philosophorum is in the soul and the extracting of it is to bring the dormant power of the pure living, breathing spirit and the Eternal soul into active functioning. Thus, it can be seen that Alchemy in one of its phases is really psycho Chemistry.

Rejuvenation and Immortality Having 50 for dealt with Yoga and themes allied to it, we now come to Rejuvenation popnlarity. This word literally means the power of securing the body from the effects of age. According to Siddhars Science Rejuvenation does not necessarily means restoring the Old to youth; for it may simply mean the maintenance of youth without reaching old age; and if youth is maintained perpetually, it becomes Immortality. So Rejuvenation is a means for prolonging life and forms a part of Immortality. Every one in this world would like to get himself rejuvenated and live for a long time with a purely selfish motive and materialistic purpose; but the art and medicine are intended only for practising Yogis and avowed celibates who have renounced the luxuries of life and leaned to live a life wholly dedicated to the service of humanity. They have therefore to live for a long time for the


good of the world. The advantages derived from this treatment for rejuvenation practised by one according to his age, come under the following principles, viz:-- If resorted to in the juvenile period, in youth or in the middle age, the individual will be found t maintain throughout his life same age he was in, when the started taking the medicine. But if the medicine is taken at the age of fifty, he will be found changed into a lad of sixteen years; if at the age of eighty, to one of 20 years without any further development of the body; and in cases persons above eighty, rejuvenation is impossible for the reason, that all the tissues and nerves will be found relaxed and deleted of their vital strength. 'Plants' elixir of life obtained from the vegetable kingdom known as 'Sanjivi' with their extraordinary virtues of restoring the dead to life and also plants known as Kalpa drugs, such as Black gooseberry. etc., all under different classifications as are mentioned below:

1. Those that rejuvenate the system immediately upon being taken. 2. Those that invigorate the system but not prolonging life. 3. Those that only prolong life. 4. Those that render the body invulnerable. 5. Those that import alchemical virtues to the system and its emanations. 6. Those that remove the wrinkles on the outer layer of the skin. 7. Those that turn grey hair black. 8. Those that help one in sitting of Yoga for a very long time. 9. Those that aid one flying in the arial region. 10. Those that help one to see the Astral light. The Kayakalpa method is primarily meant for the benefit of great safes and other savants who sacrifice their own interests for the uplift of humanity and for those who are ever spiritually inclined. According to western conception, the magical means of preserving youth in the body is to prevent the body of man from growing old by carefully maintaining his primeval freshness of sentiments and thoughts. There is a proverb"Become children in heart and you will keep young in body." By changing the habits ofthe soul, we can assuredly change those ofthe body. Causes which contribute towards man becoming old are after all rancorous and bitter thoughts, unfavourable judgement of others, fury of wounded pride and of ill- satisfied passions and similar emotional irritations. A benevolent and mild philosophy alone would save one from all these and other kindered evils. Rejuvenation for the purpose of immortal is at ion is therefore nothing but a conservation of vital energy which is considered by Siddhars to be a very delicate problem not to be discussed in public. It is therefore a purely private matter requiring long and steady training. Siddhars knew very well how sex - energy can be conserved and utilised for the development of he body and the mind of the individual, without allowing it to be dissipated in unnatural excesses as it is generally done by so many uninformed people. In order to be successful herein, It is necessary that one should lead a celebate's life (complete continence or long abstention from sexual intercourse). It may be asked here whether this will not affect the constitution since it becomes an attempt hostile to Nature. A Yogi or


Any person given to spiritualism cannot at an be affected by such restraint from sex-passion. Immortality being one of the most consoling and comforting dogmas of religion, should be reserved for the aspirations of Man's faith: and can never therefore be proved by facts acceptable to the cold criticism of science. It can nevertheless be proved by incontestable facts contemplated by Siddhan: but the present day scientists. Matten which present day science cannot at present ascertain with convincing satisfaction can only be reasoned through hypothesis. Humanity is ordinarily bound to know nothing of the Superhuman, which is beyond its average scope, Immortality in the flesh is a possibility: and a physical body can be kept on as long as the spirit desires its use; and a physical body can be kept on as long as the spirit desired its use; and it is only then that this body instead of decreasing in strength and vigour as yean go on, comes to maintain perpetual youth according to the Siddhan system. We have every reason and foundation of fact to believe in the theories put forth by siddhan in their valuable treatises. Immortals according to them are beings credited with power distinct from and greater than those of 'mortals', and they gain these supernatural power through taking to Kalpam.

When rank materialism is growing ore and more rampant as at present, there has been evidenced more than ever on earnest demand for a longer and more perfect physical life; and more human minds are now actuated by the actively curious desire to know in full the possibilities of life. They have come to appreciate more than ever then ever advantages and benefits of living in the physical. It should here be borne in mind that man will realise these results only through the exercise of a gradual series of spiritual processes operating on and refining the material body; and these results could be achieved only through the exercise of a gradual series of spirituals processes operating on and refining the material body; and there results could be achieved only through following Siddhars teachings on Rejuvenation. All diseases (lack of physical ease) manifested during the process of rejuvenation emanate from spiritual causes; and the aim of all of which is the reconstruction of the physical body, first through receiving new elements, and the next in the casting off of old ones. At the back however of all these processes of physical reconstruction, there is bound to be going on the far more important process of reconstruction of the spirit by which the body is being built. These processes are continuously going on within the body operating thought the skin the stomach and the other organs. All kinds of sickness are at best an effort of the spirit roused to increased activity by the fresh influx of forces arising from rejuvenation. only to cast off all old and relatively dead matter. But as this secret of the Siddhars has not been recognised by the human race, this spiritual process or effort with its accompanying pain and discomfort indicated by siddhars, has been held in fear and shunned as signals for or the approach of death. So, with no knowledge of the spiritual Low and judging everything from the materialistic standpoint, the processes described by Siddhars for Rejuvenation are surely bound to lead men to doubt their efficacy; but only after a course of spiritual advancement they will come to receive so much of this influx of now life so as to be obliged to work for further possibilities of existence as also to know how to realise them. As human minds come to trust the supreme power in however small an extent and appreciate the absolute necessities, then the higher power is surely bound to prevail. Although one has to face ordeals at every step on the course of treatment by elixir or Kalpam, one will surely find his body better and stronger after each successive stage of the struggle; and these struggles also will gradually become less and less sever until they eventually cease and disappear altogether. Medicines and material remedies may also greatly help one in this process of throwing - off useless matter, if used according to the instructions issued in Siddhars works, and they will be found to be of great assistance in the attempt, provided one has the mind and faith to do it. This has already been touched upon under 'Rejuvenation'. It is believe according to siddhars science that preparations from mercury alone can invest the body


With immortality and humanity from decay, and thus enable one to conquer disease and death. Mercury is the supreme medicament; and its study is regarded as highly useful and profitable Science.

'Muppu' mentioned in Siddhars science and other preparations categorised under Universal Medicine will also help one to conquer death. It may be asked here and pertinently too whether all siddhars who are believed to have had the full benefit of such treatments for rejuvenation are still alive. It is believed with dependable reasons that they do live but no one invisible for the reason that they can dematerialise and rematerialise their bodies as nothing is too high or impossible of achievement for them. We have even heard of many instances of saints and sadhus entering locked up and well-guarded or closed doors and issuing out of prisons thereby astonishing stuefied sentries who in their numbness recollect having beheld them as though in a dream, and that too only after they had passed! in fact they may be regarded as the real guardians of the world. Siddhars consider that death is not at all a necessary part of or event in human life; and that there is no low of Nature that calls for death as a necessary happening. Man dies as a result of his own traditional ignorance, fear, imitation and erroneous auto-suggestion. Sidddhars through their spiritual power, rearrange the molecules in their bodies in such a fashion that they get no sickness at any time; and what we call death does not occur to them at all. They claim that a body can made immortal and that it is also possible for them to make fresh bodies here, by simply re-arranging and thus changing the molecules as often as it is necessary without casting off the existing body. According to western ideas, death ordinarily never occurs suddenly; but it is brought about only by degrees, the sufferer either knowing or not knowing of it. Death is neither the end of life nor the beginning of immortality but it is a continuation and transformation in matter always repeated, according to the conception of the Indus. Death in fact cab be more be an absolute end than birth be a real beginning of human life. What we call death is but a rebirth into a new life. The human body is no more than a garment of the soul to which the former is coupled or linked by sensibility; and when this sensibility ceases to function, may be taken as a sure sigh that the soul is departing from the body. It is only when the garment is completely worn out or seriously and irrepairably injured, that the Soul quits it at once and for all. This is exactly what happens in all cases of natural death. To revive a dead person, the most powerful chains of attraction that have quitted the form (body) should be promptly and energetically brought together forthwith to draw the soul back to his body. If the operator can only inspire the soul of the defunct with the potentiality if his medicine or high magnetic powers, it will certainly return to the body through the persuasion of the thaumeturge. So long as the blood in the body is not tendered absolutely cold and so long as the nerves can be galvanised, no man could be said to be wholly dead; and if all the essential organs of life remain undestroyed, the spirit may be recalled either through the effects of a powerful medicine or those of powerful Will. While every minute atom of India's vast cultural store of human knowledge had thus been capitalised by the western nations who invaded and drained this Country of all her intellectual wealth, this ancient land continued to be the victim of a deliberately organised and intensely purposeful literary as it were. Nevertheless, India still lives head erect and bids fair to life on for ever as the illustrious procreator and glorious possessor of all the basic elements and factors contributing to the resultant basic strength lies in the fact of its being absolutely based upon a deep spiritual insight, knowledge and strength. Western medical science with all its allied sciences despite all its booming illusory success, has been amply evidenced to be after all a failure without the natural basic spiritual founding.
