Role of Rahu & Ketu At the Time of Death

By

Bhausaheb Sakurkar (7)

विप्र उवाच

The Brahmin (Sujanma, the disciple of Lomasha and son of Sumati) said:

परजातं कथं ज्ञेयं कथं ज्ञेयं शुभाशुभं। दशा कस्य कदा ज्ञेयं ग्रहाणां राशिनां फलं॥१॥ दशाः कतिविधाः संति ह्येतन्मे ब्रूहि तत्त्वतः। महर्षे त्वं समर्थोऽसि कृपया करुणानिधे॥२॥

Oh! Great Sage! You are the ocean of Compassion, and are capable of telling me how many are the types of dashās, how to understand which dashās shall give results of grahas and rāshis at what time, how to understand if the jātaka is born of other’s seed and how to understand good and bad results for a jātaka (from the chart).

मुनिरुवाच

तूर्यं च नेक्षितः खेश(खेशः?) शत्रुभिर्वा युतेक्षितः। परेण जायते बालो निश्चितं च यथा पशुः॥३॥

If the 4th bhāva is not aspected by the lagna lord, Sun, or the 10th lord and is in aspect of its enemy, the jātaka is born of other’s seed, as is an animal (born from someone other than father).

त्रिषष्ठद्विसुताधीशो यदा लग्ने स्थितस्तदा। तदापि परजातस्याहृ(?)त्याद्यान्यसुतादिभिः॥४॥

Should lords of 3rd, 6th, 2nd or 5th are posited in the lagna in similar fashion (devoid of aspects etc. as above), even then the jātaka is born of seed of other than father, as are his siblings. Chandrashekhar’s Comments: “Kha” means Sun, it also means zero. That is why I have translated it to mean Lagna lord, Sun or the 10th lord. This is in line with what is stated by Pārāshara when he says that Lagna lord in the 10th indicates happiness from father 24th ch.10th shloka. I personally think that in both the above combinations of graha one should not predict birth from seed of other than father, if the 4th bhāva or its lord is aspected by a natural benefic.

लग्ने क्रूरोऽस्तगः सौम्य कर्मस्थः सूर्यनंदनः। अस्मिन्योगे च यो जातो जायते वर्णसंकरः॥५॥

When the lagna is an odd lagna, Mercury occupies the 7th and Saturn is posited in the 10th, the jātaka, of such yoga, is born out of parents belonging to different castes.

मूर्तौ चेच्चैव दुश्चिक्ये भूमिनंदनभार्गवौ। यदा पंचाशदावर्णे तदापि परबालकः॥६॥

If Mars is in the lagna and Venus is in the 3rd bhāva, even if his birth is wrapped (by misinformation) five hundred times, the jātaka is born of other’s loins.

ग्रहराजस्थिते लग्ने चतुर्थे सिंहिकासुतः। स्वदेवरात्सुतोत्पत्तिर्जाता तस्य न संशयः॥७॥

When Surya occupies the Lagna and Rāhu occupies the 4th bhāva, the jātaka is born of devara (younger brother of husband that is the jātaka’s Uncle), of his mother, without any doubt. लग्ने राहुधरापुत्रौ सप्तमे चंद्रभास्करौ। नीचेन जायते बालो यदा राज्ञी भवेदपि॥८॥ When Rāhu and Mars are in Lagna and Moon and Sun occupy the 7th bhāva the child is of born of a lowly person even if the mother is a Queen.

सूर्ययुक्तेन्दु लग्नस्थः सप्तभौम भास्करौ। अस्मिन्योगे यदा जन्म परेण जायते च सः॥९॥

When Sun and Moon occupy lagna or Mars and Sun occupy the 7th bhāva, the jātaka born in these yogas is born out of other’s loins. Chandrashekhar”s Comment: Two of the available three manuscripts give the word “Bhaskarau” while the third says “saptamau prathamau navau” this would mean Sun and Moon in the lagna, 7th or 9th but why repeat lagna, that is already talked about in the first line? Though this also makes astrological sense, majority goes with the word “Bhaskarau” and hence accepted.

केंद्रशून्यो भवेद्योऽपि सोऽपि जातः परेण हि। द्विषष्ठाष्टमरिष्फेषु ग्रहास्तिष्ठंति यस्य सः॥१०॥

If grahas occupy 2nd, 6th, 8th and 12th whereas the kendras are devoid of grahas, the person born is born of other’s loins.

परजातो भवेत्सत्यमन्यत्रेष्वपि संस्थिताः। एकस्थाने यदास्तेश लग्नेशौ सोऽपि जारजः॥११॥

When lord of the 7th and lagna occupy one bhāva, the jātaka is born of other’s loins. If they are in different bhāvas results are otherwise.

जीवो निशाकरं लग्नं नेक्षितोऽपि स जारजः। जीववर्गविहीनांगे तदा योगः परेणजः॥१२॥

When lagna navāMsha or lagna in other vargas, is other than that of Jupiter the jātaka is born of other’s loins or should Jupiter not aspect Lagna or moon the jātaka is born of other’s loins.

द्विशत्रू चैककेंद्रस्थावन्यग्रहविवर्जितौ। तदापि परजातः स्यात्स्थिरलग्ने विशेषतः॥१३॥

When two mutually enemy grahas occupy one Kendra, devoid of conjunction of other graha, then too the jātaka is born of other’s loins. This is especially so if the lagna be fixed lagna.

चतुर्थे दशमे लग्ने पापयुग्विधुसंस्थितः। लग्नेशेनेक्षितं लग्नं तदापि परबालकः॥१४॥

Should Chandra be posited in 4th, 10th or Lagna and conjunct a malefic, Lagna being devoid of aspect of the Lagna lord then, too, one born in such a combination is born of other’s loins.

लग्नेशे संस्थिते लग्ने परजातं कदा च नं(न?)। भंगोऽयं सर्वयोगानामिति ते कथितं मया॥१५॥

All these yogas that are told by me are totally destroyed, and the Jātaka is never an illegitimate born, if the lagna lord occupies lagna. Chandrashekhar’s Special Comment: These yogas should not be taken literally. As is clear from the above shloka any beneficial influence on the yoga-causing planets/bhāvas will render the yoga for illegitimate birth void. This applies to other yogas that are based on bhāva lord occupying another bhāva.

लग्नेशे लग्नगे पुंसः सुदेहः स्वभुजाक्रमी। मनस्वी चातिचांचल्यो द्विभार्यो परगामी वा॥१६॥

When Lagnesha occupies the Lagna this makes the jātaka possessed of good body and valorous (the actual word means one who attacks enemy on the strength of his own arms). He is also very high minded, of an unsteady mind set or has two wives.

लग्नेशो द्वितीये लाभे स लाभी पंडितो नरः। सुशीलो धर्मविन्मानी बहूदारगुणैर्युतः॥१७॥

Lagnesha occupying the 2nd or the 11th bhāva makes one learned and wealthy. He is possessed of good qualities, a great donor (to just causes), well-mannered, religious and proud.

लग्नेशे तृतीये षष्ठे सिंहतुल्यपराक्रमी। सर्वसंपद्युतो मानी द्विभर्यो मतिमान्सुखी॥१८॥

Lagnesha occupying the 3rd or the 6th bhāva makes one as valorous as a lion, possessed of all type of wealth. He is proud, intelligent, happy, and has two wives.

लग्नेशे दशमे तूर्ये पितृमातृसुखान्वितः। बहुभ्रातृयुतः कामी गुणसौंदर्यसंयुतः॥१९॥

The Lagna lord, occupying the 10th or the 4th bhāva, results in the jātaka having many siblings, lusty, possessed of beauty and good qualities and being one who enjoys happiness of father and mother.

लग्नेशे पंचमे मानी सुत सौख्यं च मध्यमं। प्रथमापत्यनाशः स्यात्क्रोधी राजप्रवेशकः॥२०॥

Lagna lord occupying the 5th house makes one proud, angry, loose first progeny, have medium happiness from sons/progeny and informer of the king.

लग्नेशे सप्तमे यस्य भार्या तस्य न जीवति। विरक्तो वा प्रवासी वा दरिद्रो वा नृपोऽपि वा॥२१॥

One in whose chart the Lagna lord in 7th, his spouse does not live (long) and the jātaka becomes a pauper, a traveler, a renunciate or a King .

लग्नेशे व्ययगे चाष्टे सिद्धविद्याविशारदः। द्युतीचौरो महाक्रोधी परनार्यातिभोगकृत्॥२२॥

Lagna lord in the 12th bhāva or the 8th bhāva one becomes expert in certain occult sciences. He is high tempered, a thief who threatens (sort of robber) and enjoys relations with other’s women (wives).

लग्नेशे नवमे पुंसो भाग्यवान्जनवल्लभः। विष्णुभक्तः पटुर्वाग्मी पुरदारधनैर्युतः॥२३॥

Lagna lord occupying the 9th bhāva makes the jātaka a devotee of lord Vishnu, an expert orator, possessed of (or ruler of) cities, good wife, wealth. He is very fortunate and popular amongst people.

Lord of the 2nd occupying the 2nd house makes one possessed of wealth and vehicles (actually possession of horses is said here but this is modified in modern context). He is bereft of progeny though he may marry two or three wives.

धनेशे तृतीये तूर्ये विक्रमी मतिमान्गुणी। परदाराभिगामी च निर्लोभी देवभक्तियुक्॥२५॥

Lord of the 2nd occupying the 3rd or the 4th bhāva indicates a person who is valorous, intelligent, of good qualities, devotee of god, one without longings of other’s possessions but one who has relations with other’s wives.

When the 2nd lord occupies the 6th house the jātaka can get wealth from his enemy. Wealth of his enemy is stolen and he gets disease of the anus.

धनेशे सप्तमे वैद्यः परजायाभिगामिनः। जाया तस्य भवेद्वेश्या मातापि व्यभिचारिणी॥२७॥

2nd lord occupying the 7th bhāva will make the jātaka a doctor, his wife will be a prostitute, and his mother shall be of loose character.

When the lord of the second occupies the 8th bhāva one certainly gets wealth that is buried in the ground (buried treasures). He has hardly any happiness from wife or elder brother.

Lord of the 2nd occupying the 9th or the 11th bhāva makes a jātaka sick when young and later happy till end of life. He becomes wealthy, industrious and skillful.

When lord of the 2nd bhāva occupies the Lagna bhāva, the jātaka is wealthy, cruel, lustful and ever ready to do other’s work. He is inimical to his own family and daughter. Chandrashekhar’s Comment: “पुत्री स्वकुटुंबस्य कंटकः” could also be translated to mean “his own daughter is harmful to his family”. However I do not think so.

3rd Lord In Various Houses

तृतीयेशे रिपौ यस्य भ्राता शत्रु महाधनी। मातुलानां सुखं न स्यान्मातुल्यो भोगमिच्छति॥३५॥

One who has the lord of the 3rd bhāva in the 6th bhāva, his brother is his enemy and is very wealthy. He is unhappy with his maternal uncle and desires to enjoy his uncle’s house. Chandrashekhar’s Comment: However “स्यान्मातुल्यो भोगमिच्छति” could also be translated to mean “but wants to establish physical relationship with wife of his maternal uncle”, since “मातुल्य” means house of maternal uncle and “मातुली” means wife of maternal uncle. I leave it to the learned to interpret this in light of their, own understanding of principles of jyotish.

तृतीयेशे व्यये भाग्ये स्त्रीभिर्भाग्योदयो भवेत्। पिता तस्य महाचौरः सुखेऽपि दुःखदर्शितः॥३६॥

Lord of the 3rd occupying the 2nd bhāva begins a work but does not finish it, is unhappy, bulky, interested in wealth of other’s wives and has disease of anus (like fissures). Chandrashekhar’s Comments: “गुदाभंजनिकः” is translated as having disease of the anus since the 3rd bhāva is 8th from the 8th and shall aspect the 8th from 2nd bhāva. However it could also mean one who indulges in anal sex.

तूर्येशे तूर्येगे मंत्री भवेत्सर्वजनाधिपः। चतुरः शीलवान्मानी धनाढ्यः स्त्रीप्रियः सुखी॥४०॥

When the lord of the 5th bhāva occupies the ascendant or the 3rd bhāva, the jātaka shall not part with even a lump of soil, what to say of wealth. He is deceptive and a great backbiter.

9th Lord in Various Houses

धनधान्ययुतो नित्यं गुणसौंदर्यसंयुतः। बहुभ्रातृसखीयुक्तो भाग्येशे नवमे स्थिते॥७७॥

Should the lord of the 9th occupy the 9th bhāva, the jātaka, so born, has many siblings and female friends (could also mean mistresses), is always possessed of wealth and grains. He is possessed of many good qualities and is possessed of beauty.

भाग्येशे दशमे तूर्ये मंत्री सेनापतिर्भवेत्। पुण्यवान्यशवान्वाग्मी साहसी क्रोधवर्जितः॥७८॥

Lord of the 9th occupying the 10th and the 4th bhāva is one who is virtuous, successful, a good orator, valorous and bereft of anger. The jātaka becomes an adviser (minister) or commander in chief of army of the king.

भाग्येशे पंचमे लाभे भाग्यवान्जनवल्लभः। गुरुभक्तिरतो मानी धीरोदारगुणैर्युतः॥७९॥

Lord of the 9th in the 5th or the 11th bhāva makes one devoted to his preceptor (Guru), proud, wise and generous. He is fortunate and is liked by people.

भाग्येशे मातुले रिष्फे भाग्यहीनो भवेद्ध्रुवं। मातुलस्य सुखं न स्याज्ज्येष्ठभ्रातृसुखं न हि॥८०॥

When 9th lord occupies the 6th or the 12th bhāva, the jātaka is certainly bereft of fortune. He does not get happiness from his maternal uncle, neither from his elder brother (or he may lose them early in life).

भाग्येशे च मदे कल्पे गुणवान्यशवान्भवेत्। कदाचिन्न भवेत्सिद्धिर्यत्कार्यं कर्तुमिच्छति॥८१॥

Lord of the 9th occupying the 7th or the lagna may sometimes not be able to complete the work that he desires to carry out. He is possessed of many good qualities and is successful.

भाग्येशे सहजे वित्ते सदा भाग्यानुचिंतकः। धनवान्गुणवान्कामी पंडितो जनवल्लभः॥८२॥

Lord of the 9th occupying the 3rd or the 2nd bhāva is wealthy, of good qualities, lusty, learned and liked by people. He is always able to divine what is in future.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: I have translated “भाग्यानुचिंतकः” as one who divines the future. However it could also be translated as one who dwells upon his own fortune, but context suggests otherwise.

10th Lord in Various Houses

दशमेशे सुखे कर्मे ज्ञानवान्सिंहविक्रमी। गुरुदेवार्चनरतो धर्मात्मा सत्यसंयुतः॥८३॥

10th lord occupying the 4th or the 10th bhāva makes a jātaka devoted to Guru and God. He is upholder of dharma and truthful. He is learned and valorous like a lion.

दशमेशे सुते लाभे धनवान्पुत्रवान्भवेत्। सर्वदा हर्षसंयुक्तः सत्यवादी सुखी नरः॥८४॥

10th lord occupying the 5th or the 11th bhāva makes one always happy, speaker of truth and delightful. He is possessed of wealth and sons.

कर्मेशेऽरिव्यये रंध्रे शत्रुभिः पीडितः सदा। चातुर्यगुणसंपन्नः कदाचिन्न सुखी भवेत्॥८५॥

Lord of the 10th occupying 6th, 8th or the 12th bhāva makes a jātaka possessed of good qualities, clever and sometimes unhappy. He is always troubled by his enemies.

दशमाधिपतौ लग्ने कवितागुणसंयुतः। बाल्ये रोगी सुखी पश्चादर्थवृद्धिर्दिने दिने॥८६॥

When lord of the 10th occupies the Lagna the jātaka is sickly in childhood but later on his happiness and wealth increases day by day. He knows the art of poetry (is a poet).

धने मदे च सहजे कर्मेशो यदि संस्थितः। मनस्वी गुणवान्वाग्मी सत्यधर्मसमन्वितः॥८७॥

When lord of the 10th is situated in the 2nd, 7th or 3rd bhāva, the jātaka is intelligent, possessed of good qualities, an orator and upholder of truth.

11th Lord in Various Houses

भाग्येशे (लाभेशे ?) संस्थिते लाभे स वाग्मी जायते ध्रुवं। पांडित्यं कविता चैव वर्धते च दिने दिने॥८८॥

When the 9th lord (I think this should be 11th lord) is posited in the 11th bhāva the jātaka is certainly a good orator and his scholarship and genius increases by the day.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: So far the order of the shlokas has been in order of house lordship. Now the writer goes back to the 9th bhāva, so this could be a subsequent addition to the original manuscript. My personal opinion is the writer is talking about the 11th lord and by mistake the word “भाग्येशे” was written instead of “लाभेशे”, as the position of bhāva lords begin with their being posited in own house, so far and the later shloka also supports my argument. The learned may like to decide about this on the light of their, own, logic.

प्राप्तिस्थानाधिपे रिष्फे म्लेच्छसंसर्गकारकः। कaमुको बहुकांतश्च क्षणिको लंपटः सदा॥८९॥

Lord of the 11th occupying the 12th bhāva makes one lustful, has many wives, opportunist and always a libertine. He has contacts with those of other religion.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: “म्लेच्छ” could also mean a barbarian or wicked person.

लाभेशे संस्थिते लग्ने धनवान्सात्विको महान्। समदृष्टो महावक्ता कौतुकी च भवेत्सदा॥९०॥

Lord of the 11th occupying the Lagna bhāva makes one wealthy, of good qualities (truthful etc.). He is a great orator, is inquisitive and considers all being as equals.

लाभेशे द्वितीये पुत्रे नानासुखसमन्वितः। पुत्रवान्धार्मिकश्चैव सर्वसिद्धिप्रदायकः॥९१॥

Lord of the 11th in 2nd or the 5th house makes one possessed of all king of happiness. He is possessed of sons, is religious and ever successful

लाभेशे सहजे तूर्ये तीर्थेषु तत्परो भवेत्। कुशलं सर्वकार्येषु केवलं गलरोगवान्॥९२॥

Lord of the 11th occupying the 3rd or the 4th bhāva is ever ready to visit holy places . He is expert in many occupations, but has disease of the throat.

लाभेशे षष्ठभवने नानारोगसमन्वितः। सर्वं सुखं भवेत्तस्य प्रवासी परसेवकः॥९३॥

Lord of the 11th occupying the 6th bhāva makes one affected by many diseases, though he has happiness in all other area of life and is a traveler and one who serves others.

लाभेशे सप्तमे रंध्रे भार्या तस्य रुजान्विता। उदारो धनवान्कामी मूखरो भवति ध्रुवं॥९४॥

When the 11th lord occupies the 7th or the 8th bhāva, his wife is sickly and he is generous, wealthy, lusty, and is certainly a harsh speaker.

लाभेशे गगने धर्मे राजयुज्यधनाधिपः। चतुरः सत्यवादी च निजधर्मसमन्वितः॥९५॥

Lord of the 11th occupying the 9th or the 10th bhāva is clever, truthful, follower of own dharma and is connected to the ruler of a kingdom and wealthy.

Chandrashekahr’s Comment: “राजयुज्यधनाधिपः” can also mean that he earns wealth by working for a king or government work.

12th Lord in Various Houses

व्ययेशेऽरिव्यये पापी मातामृत्युविचिंतकः। क्रोधी संतानदुःखी च परजायासु लंपटः॥९६॥

Lord of the 12th occupying the 6th or the 12th bhāva is ever angry, worried for progeny and lusts after other’s wives. He is a sinner and always wishes for death of his mother.

व्ययेशे मदने लग्ने जायासौख्यं भवेन्न हि। दुर्बलः कफरोगी च धनविद्याविवर्जितः॥९७॥

When the lord of the 12th bhāva occupies the lagna or the 7th bhāva, the jātaka is a weakling, has diseases related to the “Kapha” humour (phlegm/mucous) and is bereft of learning. He also does not get happiness of wife (may remain unmarried or may not get on well with his wife).

व्ययेशे द्वितीये रंध्रे विष्णुभक्तिसमन्वितः। धार्मिकः प्रियवादी च सर्वगुणसमन्वितः॥९८॥

A jātaka whose 12th lord occupies the 2nd or the 8th bhāva is ever devoted to Lord Vishnu, is religious, possessed of all good qualities and a pleasant (or learned) speaker.

भ्रातृद्वेषी प्रियाद्वेषी गुरुद्वेषी भवेन्नरः। व्ययेशे सहजे धर्मे स्वशरीरस्य पोषकः॥९९॥

When the lord of the 12th occupies the 3rd or the 9th bhāva, the jātaka is careful of his own health but is jealous of his own brother, wife (husband) and Guru (preceptor)

व्ययेशे दशमे लाभे पुत्रसौख्यं भवेन्न हि। मणिमाणिक्यमुक्ताभिर्धनं किंचित्समालभेत्॥१००॥

12th lord occupying the 10th or the 11th bhāva indicates that the jātaka will sometimes get wealth like Jewels, Rubies and pearls. He shall not have happiness of son (may not get progeny).

इति ते कथितं विप्र भावानां च फलाफलं। बलाबलविवेकेन सर्वेषां फलमादिशेत्॥१०१॥

In this manner have I narrated to you Oh Brahmin the good and bad results of all bhavas. Predict about the results, after considering the strength and weakness of all the bhavas, and by using your sense of proportion.

वक्री चेत्स्वचतुर्थस्य फलं भौमो ददाति हि। बुधस्तूर्यस्य देवेज्यः पंचमस्य च भार्गवः॥१०२॥

Mars gives (own) results when placed in 2nd or 4th bhāva, if in retrograde motion. Mercury gives results in the 4th, Jupiter in the 5th, Venus in the 7th, if in retrograde motion.

सप्तमस्य तमध्वंसिपुत्रस्तु नवमस्य च। वित्तस्य विषुवत्यर्के ददाति स्वफलं विधुः॥१०३॥

Saturn gives results when in the 9th bhāva and retrograde and Moon gives results in 2nd while Sun gives his results when equinoctial position (when Sun in Aries or Libra).

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: These appear to be the exceptions that are being talked about, in the light of the axiom that Mars does not give results in 2nd, Mercury in the 4th, Jupiter in 5th and so on.

ग्रहपूर्णबले प्राप्ते फलं पूर्णं समादिशेत्। अर्धेऽर्धं पादहीनेन तन्मितं पादमंघ्रिणां॥१०४॥

When the grahas have full strength, full results are to be indicated, when they are with half strength the results are only half of that indicated and if they are only a quarter of their strength the results should be told accordingly.

भावानां द्वादशानां च सर्वेषां फलमादिशेत्। भावस्थानां ग्रहाणां च फलं ते कथितं मया॥१०५॥

I have told the results of grahas in occupation of bhavas and all results be indicated after taking into consideration all the twelve bhavas.

अतः परं प्रवक्ष्यामि दशाभेदान्यनेकशः। विंशोत्तरी (१२०) दशा चाद्या दशा तु षोडशोत्तरी (११६)॥१०६॥

Now I shall tell about the many different dashās. The first amongst dashās is Vimshottari and then there is the ShoDashottari dashā.

द्वादशोत्तरिका (११२) ज्ञेया तथैवाष्टोत्तरी (१०८) दशा। पंचोत्तरी (१०५) दशा तद्वत्दशा शतसमाः (१००) स्मृताः॥१०७॥

Know that there are also the Dwaadashottari and the one known as the Ashtottari. Similarly remember other dashās as the Panchottari and the Shatasamaa dashās.

दशा हि चतुराशीति (८४) समा चाथ द्विसप्ततिः (७२)। तथा षष्ठिसमा (६०) प्रोक्ता दशा षड्विंशति (2६) समा॥१०८॥

(Then are the dashas known as) CaturaashIti, equal to similar number of years (84) and Dwisaptati of 72 years. Similarly the dashās known as SaSThisamā and SaDaviMshatI dashās are spoken of.

खेटक्रमा दशा राशिक्रमा भागक्रमा तथा। नवांशनवदशा राश्यांशक दशास्ततः॥१०९॥

There are dashās that are based on order of grahas, on the basis of rāshis and those based on the order of navāMsha. Similarly there are the navanavāMshaka dasha and the raashyaMshaka dashās.

दशा कालाभिधा चक्रदशा प्रोक्ता मुनीश्वरैः।

The sages have also told Kala dashā and Chakra dashās.

विंशोत्तरि द्विधा प्रोक्ताष्टोत्तरी च द्विधा मता॥११०॥

There are thought to be two types of Vimshottari dashā and two types of Ashtottari dashās.

चक्राख्या द्विविधा ज्ञेया कालाख्या त्रिविधा स्मृता। दशा द्वाविंशतिः प्रोक्ता तासां वै कथयाम्यहं॥१११।

There are also said to be two types of chakra and three types of Kala dashā. I shall now tell of the 22 types of dashās that are told (by sages).

आनयनप्रकारं च शृषुष्व द्विजपुंगव।

Oh great Brahmin, now listen to the method of calculating the dashās.

नामनक्षत्रपर्यंतमार्द्रादिकृत्तिकादितः॥११२॥

The nakshatras should be counted from Krittikā to the nakshatra of name (birth nakshatra) and Ardrā to nakshatra of name.

शैवात्कृष्णेऽर्कहोरायां चंद्रहोरागते सिते। दहनात्स्वर्क्षपर्यंतं गणयेन्नवभिर्हरेत्॥११३॥ सूर्येँदुकुजस्वर्भानुवाक्पतिमंदचंद्रजाः। केतुशुक्रौ क्रमाच्छेषं विज्ञेयात्र दशाधिपाः॥११४॥

Know that if the birth is in the dark fortnight and in the horā of Sun or when birth is in bright fortnight and horā of Moon, count from Krittikā nakshatra to birth nakshatra and divide the number obtained by 9. The balance so obtained indicates lords of the dasha in order of Sun, Moon, Mars, Rāhu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: I think the correct word is “सैषात्कृष्णेऽर्कहोरायां” and not “शैवात्कृष्णेऽर्कहोरायां”. Obviously if the birth is in dark fortnight and Chandra hora, or bright fortnight and Sun’s hora, the count is from Ardrā nakshatra to the Janma- nakshatra.

रसा (६) शा (१०) मुनि (७) धृत्यष्टाः (१८)यति (१५) धृति (१९)वत्सराः। सप्तेंदवः (१७) नगा (७) व्योमवाहनः (२०) भास्करादयः॥११५॥

The dashās of Sun etc are of 6, 10, 7, 18, 15, 19, 17, 7 and 20 years respectively.

एकः पचयतः रुद्रात् धृत्यंतं वत्सराः क्रमात्। रविर्भौमो गुरुर्मंदः केतुश्चंद्रो बुधोशनाः॥११६॥ अष्टौ दशाधिपाः प्रोक्ताः राहुहीनाः नवग्रहाः। पुष्यभाज्जन्मभं यावद्गणयेद्वसुभिर्हरेत्॥११७॥

Add 1-1 till 18 to 11 to obtain years of dashās from Sun (11), Mars (12), Jupiter (13), Saturn (14), Ketu (15), Moon (16), Mercury (17), and Venus (18). Nine grahas, excluding Rāhu, provide the 8 dasha lords. Count the nakshatra at birth from Pushya nakshatra and divide the result by 8. The balance shall indicate the dasha (at birth) from Sun onwards (for Shodashottari).

सूर्यहोरागते शुक्ले चंद्रस्य कृष्णपक्षके। तदा नृणां फलार्थाय विचिंत्या षोडशोत्तरी॥११८॥

For understanding the results for jātaka born in a bright fortnight and horā of Sun or in a dark fortnight and horā of Moon, analyze the Shodashottari dasha.

सूर्यो गुरुः शिखिः ज्ञोऽगुः कुजो मंदः निशाकरः। शुक्रहीना दशा ह्येषा द्विचयात्सप्तमात्समाः॥११९॥

जन्मभात्पौष्णपर्यंतं गणयेदष्टभिर्भजेत्। नवमांशे यदा जातः शुक्रस्य द्वादशोत्तरी (११२)॥१२०॥

दशा निगदिता नृणां शेषकं परिचिंतयेत्।

For persons, other than those born in conditions already told and born in navāMsha of Venus, Dwādashottari dasha should be thought of. One should count from Revati nakshatra to the birth nakshatra and divide the number by 8. The balance shall indicate dasha at birth in the order of Sun, Jupiter, Ketu, Mercury, Rāhu, Mars, Saturn and Moon. This dasha does not have dasha ruled by Venus. The years of the dasha are obtained by adding 2 to 7, progressively beginning from Sun.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: Dwadashottari dasha grants 7 years to Sun, 9 to Jupiter, 11 to Ketu, 13 to Mercury, 15 to Rāhu, 17 to Mars 19 to Saturn and 21 years to Moon.

अथाष्टोत्तरिकां वक्ष्ये शृणुष्व द्विजपुंगव॥१२१॥

Listen oh great Brahmin, I shall tell about Ashtottari dashā.

सूर्यश्चंद्रः कुजः सौम्यः शनिर्जीवस्तमो भृगुः। एते दशाधिपाः प्रोक्ता विकेतुश्च नवग्रहाः॥१२२॥

रसाः (६) पंचेंदवो (१५) नागाः (८) शैलचंद्रः (१७) नभेंदवः (१०)।

गोब्जाः (१९) सूर्याः (१२) कुनेत्राश्च (२१) समाः प्रद्योतनादयः॥१२३॥

Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, Rāhu and Shukra are lords of the dashās. Out of the 9 grahas, Ketu does not have lordship of any dashā (here). The years of dashās, beginning from Sun are 6, 15, 8, 17, 10, 19, 12 and 21 respectively.

लग्नेशात्केंद्रकोणस्थराहोर्लग्ने स्थितं विना। दशाष्टोत्तरिका चिंत्या नान्यत्रे तमसि स्थिते॥१२४॥

The Ashtottari should be thought of when Rāhu occupies kendras or trikona barring the Lagna. It should not be thought of when Rāhu occupies other houses (otherwise it shall mislead).

अष्टोत्तरी द्विधा प्रोक्ता शिवादिकृत्तिकादितः। स्थिते शैवात्सग्रहे तु विग्रहे कृत्तिकादितः॥१२५॥

The Ashtottrati dashā is of two types, When Lagna is occupied by a graha one should count (till birth nakshatra) from Ardrā nakshatra and should the Lagna be devoid of graha count from Krittikā nakshatra.

चतुष्कं त्रितयं तस्माच्चतुष्कं त्रितयं पुनः। यावत्स्वजन्मभं तावद्गणयेच्च यथाक्रमात्॥१२६॥

Begin from Ardrā or Krittikā (as applicable in light of above shloka). Should the nakshatra at birth be within 4 nakshatra, from Ardrā or Krittikā Sun is dashā lord, if within next 3 nakshatra Moon is the lord, for the next 4 nakshatra Mars is the lord of dashā, for the next 3 it is Mercury and for the next 4 nakshatra it is Saturn who lords the dasha. For the next 3 nakshatras Jupiter is the lord of dashā and for the next 4 it is Rāhu while for the balance 4 nakshatra Venus is treated as the lord of dashā at birth.

खेचराणां च सप्तानां वर्षाणि पंचभूमयः। यातो विनानुराधादि विज्ञेयं जन्मभावधि॥१२७॥

गणयेत्सप्तभिर्भक्ते शेषे कल्प्याः दशाः शुभाः। रविज्ञोऽर्कसुतो भौमः भार्गवो रजनीकरः॥१२८॥

वाचस्पतिश्च* कर्कांगे तस्यैव द्वादशांशके। पंचोत्तरशता चिंत्या नान्यत्रेऽथ शताब्दिका॥१२९॥

The seven planets have a total of 105 years of dashā (Thus the name Panchottari). When a jātaka is born in Cancer lagna and Cancer DwādashāMsha, one should analyze the chart on the basis of Panchottari dashā, otherwise Shatābdikā dashā be used. Count from Anurādha to the birth nakshatra and divide this number by 7, the balance shall indicate the dashās of seven grahas, excluding Rāhu and Ketu, in the order of Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Mars, Venus, Moon and Jupiter. The dashās of these grahas, from are to be to be drawn by adding 1 to 7 years, progressively.

अथ शताब्दिकादशा : Now the Shatābdikā dashā (is being told),

रविश्चंद्रो भृगुश्चांद्रि जीवो विश्वंभरात्मजः। दैवाकरिः क्रमादेते बाणाः बाणाः दिशो दिशः॥१३०॥

नखाः नखाः खरामाश्च वर्षाणि दिनपादयः। वर्गोत्तमगते लग्ने दशा चिंत्या शताब्दिका॥१३१॥

पौष्णाज्जन्मर्क्षपर्यंतं गणयेत्सप्तभिर्हरेत्। शेषांको रवितो ज्ञेया दशाः शतसमास्त्वियं॥१३२॥

When the lagna is vargottama one should analyze Shatābdikā dashā. Count from Revati nakshatra to the birth nakshatra and divide the number so obtained by 7. Count the balance from Sun in the dashā order of Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. Their respective dashās are of 5, 5, 10, 10, 20, 20 and 30 years.

रविश्चंद्रः कुजः सौम्यो जीवशुक्रौ शनिश्चरः। तमध्वजौ विना सर्वे ग्रहा द्वादशहायनाः॥१३३॥

पवनाज्जन्मभं यावत् सप्ततष्टे दशा भवेत्। चतुराशीतिका चिंत्या कर्मेशे कर्मसंस्थिते॥१३४॥

When the 10th lord occupies the 10th bhāva one should analyze on the basis of ChaturashIti (running for 84 years) dashā. Count from Swāti nakshatra to the birth nakshatra and divide this number by 7. The balance indicates dashā (operating at birth) from Sun onwards. The dashā operate in the order of Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, that is all the grahas excluding Rāhu and Ketu and runs for 12 years each.

लग्नेशे सप्तमे यत्र लग्ने वै मदनाधिपे। चिंतनीया दशा तत्र द्व्यधिकासप्तति (७२) समा॥१३५॥

नववर्षाणि सर्वेषां ग्रहाणां वै विकेतुनां। मूलाज्जन्मर्क्षपर्यंतं गणयेदष्टभिर्हरेत्॥१३६॥

शेषे दशा विचिंत्याथ वक्ष्येऽहं षष्ठिहायनी।

When the Lagna lord occupies 7th bhāva and 7th lord occupies the Lagna in such a case think of Dwyādhikā-Saptati (72 year) dashā. All graha excluding Ketu have dasha running for 9 years each. Count from Mula nakshatra to the birth nakshatra and divide the number, so obtained by 8. The balance shall indicate the (Dwyādhikā-Saptati) dashā running at birth beginning from Sun in the order of Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and Rāhu. Now I shall talk about Shashthihāyani (Literally 60 years) dashā now.

गुर्वर्कभूसुतानां च वर्षाणि दिङ्मितानि च॥१३७॥

ततः शशिज्ञशुक्रार्कपुत्रागूनां समाश्च षट्। दास्रात्त्रयं चतुष्कं च त्रयं वेदं पुनः पुनः॥१३८॥

यदार्को लग्नराशीशः चिंत्या षष्ठिसमा तदा।

When Sun is the lord of Lagna think of Shashthisamā (Shashthihāyani) dasha. The dashās of Guru, Sun and Mars operate for 10 years each while those of Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Rahu operate for 6 years each (in this order). Beginning from Ashwini 4 and 3 nakshatra alternately, in the same order indicate operation of this dashā.

Chandrashekhar’s Comment: Other classics talk of Sun being merely placed in the lagna as the condition for referring to Shashthihāyani dashā, as against his having to be the lord of lagna (and perhaps being placed anywhere) by sage Lomasha.

श्रवणाज्जन्मभं यावद्गणयेदष्टभिर्भजेत्॥१३९॥

शशांकार्कसुरेज्यारज्ञार्कजोशनराहवः। एकः पचयतश्चैकाद्वार्षाण्येषां क्रमात्स्मृताः॥१४०॥

दिवसे सूर्यहोरायां चिंत्या वै षड्गुणब्दिका। रात्रौ चंद्रस्य होरायां नान्यत्रैष विचिंतयेत्॥१४१॥

For a birth, in Sun’s horā and day time or Moon’s horā at night none other than ShaDaguNabdikā dashā (also called ShaTatriMshatikā), be thought of. Count from Shravana nakshatra to the birth nakshatra and divide this by 8 to get the dashā operating at birth in order of Moon, Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Venus and Rāhu.

सूर्येन्दुभूमिजनिशाधीशपुत्रसुरेज्यकाः। भृगुमंदागुशिखिनः लग्नस्थाच्चिंतिता दशा॥१४२॥

दशैतेषां समाद्याः स्युः स्पष्टा राश्यादयश्च ये। खेटक्रमा दशा चिंत्या यदा लग्नेशव्यवस्थितः॥१४३॥

The dashā period is equivalent to Rāshis (the number of rāshi) in the order of Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rāhu and Ketu, when they occupy the Lagna. The dashā shall be proportionate to the degrees of the rāshis, for which it is being drawn. The dasha shall begin from that of the graha occupying the Lagna.

क्वचिद्ग्रहस्तदानो च न चिन्त्या बहुषुर्बलात्।

If a graha (in lagna) is combust, then the first dashā shall begin from the one who is the strongest amongst all grahas.

अथ राशिक्रमान्वक्ष्ये शृषुष्व द्विजपुंगव॥१४४॥

Listen, Oh great Brahmin, now I shall tell the Order of rāshis.

ग्रहे राश्यादिके चाल्पे दशा तस्यादिमा भवेत्। ततस्तदाधिकस्यैवं तुल्ये नैसर्गिकाद्बलात्॥१४५॥

The first dasha begins from the Rāshi tenanted by the graha having least degrees. These are followed by the dashās of grahas having more degrees and these are followed by dasha of grahas having even more degrees and so on. Should grahas have identical amshas then the dashā of graha that is stronger, by nature (Nisargabala), shall operate.

राशीशात्सप्तमेंऽगेशे चिंत्या राशिक्रमा दशा।

When the lord of Lagna occupies the rashi in 7th from the lord of depositor of Moon one should consider the Rashi-krama dashā.

यस्मिन्नवांशकस्थेऽर्के दशा तस्यादिमा मता॥१४६॥

In my opinion, the dashā of navāMsha rāshi that is occupied by Sun shall yield the first dashā.

अग्रेऽग्रेऽब्जादयः खेटाः केत्वंताः संस्थिताः क्रमात्। दशामानं प्रवक्ष्यामि यथोक्तं ब्रह्मणा पुरा॥१४७॥

Then operate the other grahas’ dashās, in the order ending with Ketu. I shall now tell the period of dashās as told by Brahmā in ancient time.

लिप्तिकृत्वा ग्रहं व्योमखाश्विभिर्भाजितैः फलं। पुनः सूर्यैर्हृते शेषं समाद्यंशकका दशा॥१४८॥

Convert the degrees etc. of grahas to kalās (Minutes) and divide the same with 200. Divide the resultant with 12 to get the balance which shall indicate the years of span of dashā (of that graha)

सर्वेषां मानवानां च दशास्त्वेषा विचिंतयेत्।

This dashā be considered for all human beings

तन्वादिभावाः संस्पृष्टाः प्रोक्तमार्गेण चानयेत्॥१४९॥

Calculate the degrees etc of Lagna and other bhāvas in the way already told (elsewhere).

लग्नेशः संस्थितो यत्र दशा तस्यादिमा स्मृता। द्वितीयेशादितश्चाग्रे ज्ञेया राश्यंशका दशा॥१५०॥

चिंत्या लग्ने बलवती लग्नेशे वा बलान्विते॥१५१॥

Find out which amongst Lagna and Lagna lord is stronger. The dashā of its NavāMsha lord shall be the first dashā. This shall be followed by the navāMsha rāshi dasha of lord of 2nd, 3rd and so on.

संध्या पंचघटी प्रोक्ता दिन षष्ठ्यंश नाडिका। सूर्यबिंबार्द्धतः पूर्वे परस्तादुदयादपि॥१५२॥

A day is of 60 Ghatis (nādika of 24 minutes each) and the Sandhyā time is 5 ghatis before rise of half disc to Sun and 5 ghatis after it rises. Similarly another Sandhyā period is 5 ghatis prior to Sun set and 5 ghatis after Sun set.

एवं संध्याद्वयं त्विंशात् घटिकाभिः प्रकीर्तिताः। दिनस्य विंशत् घटिका पूर्णसंज्ञा उदाहृताः॥१५३॥

Thus the two Sandhyās together are known to be of 20 ghati period. Thus the period of 20 ghatis is called Purna.

निशाया मुग्धसंज्ञा च घटिका विंशतिश्च या। सूर्योदयस्य या संध्या खंडाख्या दशनाडिका॥१५४॥

The Sandhyas of night are called Mugdha and it is also of 2o Ghatis. The Sandhyā at the time of Sunrise is of 10 ghati and is known as Khanda Sandhyā.

अस्तकालस्य या संध्या सुधाख्या दशनाडिका। पूर्णमुग्धे गतघटी षड्गुणे नवधा लिखेत्॥१५५॥

The Sandhyā at the time of Sun set is also of 10 Ghatis and is called Sudha Sandhyā. For one born in the Purna, or Mughdha, Sandhyā multiply the ghatis past in the Sandhyās by 6 and place the same at 9 places.

तथा खंडसुधासूर्यैर्हते तु नवधा लिखेत्। विभक्तानीन्द्रिययुगैः मानाख्यानि फलानि च॥१५६॥

Similarly should the birth be in the Khanda or the Sudhā Sandhyā, multiply their ghatis past by 12 and keep the result in 9 places. Divide both (the results of the Purna/Mugdha and of Khanda/Sudhā) by 45.

क्रमात्सूर्यादिकानां वै मानान्युक्ता मुनीश्वरैः। स्वस्वमानं स्वसंख्याभिर्गुणितं स्युः समादयः॥१५७॥

Multiplying the result (as indicated above) by the numbers of Sun etc. (1, 2, 3 etc.) shall give the dashās of the respective grahas, say the Sages.

राशीश्वराद्दशा ज्ञेया सूर्यादीनां क्रमात्पुनः। दिवारात्रिस्तथा संध्या त्रिकाले त्रिविधा दशा॥१५८॥

There are three types of dashās of the lords of Rāshis from Sun onwards in that order, based on the three periods ( of birth) of Day, Night and Sandhyās.

चक्राख्याथ दशां च वक्ष्ये सुमतिनंदन। लग्नस्थस्य दशा चादौ ततो वित्तस्थितादयः॥१५९॥

Now I shall tell of the Chakra dashā, Oh son of Sumati (Sujanma). The first dashā is that of the planet occupying lagna and then operates the dashā of planet occupying the 2nd bhāva and so on.

द्वित्र्यादयो यदैकस्थास्तदा भागादयोऽधिकात्। तत्रापि तुल्ये नैसर्गाद्बलात्पूर्वेऽधिकास्य च॥१६०॥

When two or three planets occupy the same bhāva then for that bhāva the dashā of the graha in highest degree shall be the first to operate and then those of the grahas in lesser degrees. Should the amshas of two or three planets be identical then dasha of the planet that is stronger, in Nisarga bala, shall operate first and so on.

राशिप्रमितवर्षाणि भागाद्याश्चानुपाततः। भावानामपि लग्नाच्च वर्षाणि दिग्मितानि च॥१६१॥

The bhāva dashā begins from the lord of lagna in regular order and dashā period is of 10 years for each bhāva dashā. The dashā period at birth is to be taken in years in proportion to the degrees rising in the Lagna (rāshi).

भुक्ता दशानुपाताद्वा विज्ञेया स्वस्वकल्पनात्। अंतर्दशापि सुधिया सूक्ष्मादेशाय चिंतयेत्॥१६२॥

The period of dashā enjoyed at birth should be calculated proportionately. Similarly for more precise results one should calculate the antardashās too.

दशा दशाहता कार्या दशाब्देन विभाजिता। लब्धं वर्षादिकं ज्ञेयं पाकं पाकेऽपि पूर्ववत्॥१६३॥

Multiply the years of dasha or the Lord of the Mahadashā by the years of dashā of the planet whose antardashā is to be calculated. Divide the product by 10 to get the number of months of antardashā of that planet in the Mahadashā of the dasha lord.

बलाबलविवेकेन फलं ज्ञेयं दशासु च। विपरीतं फलं वाच्यं खेटे वक्रगतौ सदा॥१६४॥

Understand the results of dashās on the basis of the planets strength and weakness. The results of retrograde planets are always reverse of those given by planets in regular motion.

आदिदृष्के स्थिते खेटे दशारंभे फलं वदेत्। दशा मध्ये फलं वाच्यं मध्ये द्रेष्काणके स्थिते॥१६५॥

अंते फलं तृतीयस्थे व्यस्तं खेटे च वक्रिणि।

The results of planets in the first dreshkāna are received at the beginning of their dashā, those in the second dreshkāna give their results at the middle of the dashā while the planets in 3rd dreshkāna as also retrograde planets give their results at the end of the dashā.

इति ते कथितं विप्र दशाभेदान्यनेकशः॥१६६॥

Thus have I told Oh Brahmin, the difference in various dashās.

यस्मै कस्मै न दातव्यं ज्ञानमेतत्सुदुर्लभं। अतः परं पृच्छसि किं तद्वदस्व द्विजर्षभ॥१६७॥

This knowledge is difficult to obtain and do not impart this to anyone even if the near ones ask for it, Oh the great amongst Brāhmin.

॥इति श्रीलोमशसंहितायां षष्ठिसाहस्र्यां प्रथमोत्थाने लोमशसुजन्माविप्रसंवादे भावफलं दशाभेदकथनो नाम नवमोऽध्यायः॥९॥ ||

Thus ends the ninth chapter titled “Results of the Houses and the Kinds of Dashas” in the conversation between Lomasha and Sujanma in the first part of Lomasha Samhita of sixty thousand verses.||
