We today talk about a unique sensitive point for the timing of events throughthe “Use of Degree wise Navamsa Chart”. This writeup tells us about the use of transits and progressed planets for timing the events in a horoscope. These transits and progressed planets need not be converted into Navamsa except for the Ascendant, if the timings of event are known. The good and bad aspects of the transit planets and cusps indicate good and bad events of the past and the future depending upon the inherent nature of the transiting planet.
Amrit Manthan: The theory of Degree wise Navamsa was projected to us by our Late Guru Sh C S Patel sahib as he put his heart and soul by glancing into various Nadi Granthas of the South. The astrologers from South India gave the world a different dimension to Navamsa by working out an effective essence of Soul (Sun), body (Ascendant) and the mind (Moon), termed as Amrit Manthan. This ‘Essence’ is the sum of the degrees of: Navamsa Ascendant + Navamsa Sun + Navamsa Moon and is called Amrit Manthan.
Amrit Manthan is a strong, sensitive focal point and is related to the good and bad events in a native’s life. This Amrit Manthan is a particular point, in the Navamsa Chart which enlightens us on the character and events of the life of any native. The benedictions or worst experiences are related to the transit of benefic or malefic planets on this focal point Amrit Manthan respectively. The utility of this Amrit Manthan point has proved its efficacy with successful results in almost 90% of the cases.
Events good or bad occur in the life of a native during transit on Amrit Manthan or its trines with the sensitive point (Amrit Manthan). The planetary transit positions on this sensitive point can drastically bring changes in the life of a native. Astrologers from the East and West, have been trying to find sensitive points for centuries resulting in the innumerable and invaluable contributions such as the Degree System of Jaimini, Tajik System of the Yavanacharyas for Sahams; points developed by the author of Brihat Parashari like Indra, Vajra, Dhooma, etc., Degree wise analysis by Patel Sahib and various other scholars e.g. Lily for Horary Astrology; periods regarding diseases by Morris Wemis, etc. It is unfortunate that the valuable research principles developed by a few learned astrologers died along with them as they could not pass on their achievements to the world. The world is and would be indebted to Shri Patel Sahib who brought before us Degree wise Navamsa used by South Indian Astrologers and thus the sensitive points with workable methods which are confidently propounded by astrologers from South India.
Explanation & Experiences
To explain and experience the concept we take the example of our Late Guru Shri C.S Patel ji (living with us through his teachings) to understand the concept. He had always used his example to make the concepts clear so we have no right to deviate from his vision. The chart of Shri Patel is appended below:
We see that Navamsa degrees of Ascendant are 19 Vi 50’, Sun 25 Le 28’, Moon 19 Cp 50’, thus the Amrit Manthan point would be the resultant sum of all these three and would be 5 Sg 28’. These degrees when transited by planets would give events of life according to their inherent nature on the soul (Sun), body (Ascendant) and the mind (Moon).
Patel Sahib’s own Death with D9 Degree
Explanation: The D9 degrees of Lagna or the Ascendant at the time of death are 5 Le 07’, Sun 5Pi 04’, and Mars are 5Ar 27’ respectively.
His Wife’s Death with D1 degree
Now we see his wife’s death. The D1 degrees of the Moon at the time of his wife’s Death are 5Ge 07’.
Patel Sahib’s mother’s death happened on 30th Nov 1965. Jupiter’s degrees were 50Ge 12’ 6.65” on that day.
Now we will test on another horoscope, the Late Smt Indira Gandhi.
In the birth chart of Smt Indira Gandhi the Amrit Manthan derived on the similar method as stated above is 4 Ge 16′ 2″
The D1 degrees of Rahu /Ketu at the time of the death are 30 Ta 59’ 32.77.03”, (which are very, very close to Amrit Manthan degrees & D9 degrees of Ascendant. The time of firing is also known to be at 40Cp 16’ 24.32”, which is also close.
The examples are self-explanatory. If the event timings are known then you will find that the D9 Ascendant degrees are also meeting Amrit Manthan degrees. Otherwise, see the navamsa sign of transit planets and where they correspond with the natal rasi chart. With a little practice the major events of life can be timed when malefics or benefics transit this sensitive point.
