1. Maitreya said. O Venerable Mahārśi Parashara! You are omniscient. There is no subject, with which you are not conversant. Therefore now please favour me with guidance about the different kinds of Dashas (periods) of the various Planets.

2-5. Mahārśi Parashara replied. O Brahmin! Dashas are of many kinds. Amongst them Vimshottari is the most appropriate for the general populace. But the other Dashas, followed in special cases, are Astottara, Shodshottari, Dwadashottari, Panchottari, Shatabdik, Chaturashiti-sama, Dwisaptati-sama, Shastihayani, Shat-trimshat-sama. Our ancients have described these different kinds of Dashas, based on Nakshatras.

6-11. O Brahmin! Some Mahārśis have made a mention of Kala and Chakra Dasha, but they have recognized the Kala Chakra Dasha, as supreme. The other kinds of Dashas, propagated by the sages, are Char, Sthira, Kendra, Karak, Brahma Planet, Manduk, Shul, Yogardh, Drig, Trikona, Rāśi, Panchswara, Yogini, Pind, Nausargik, Asht Varga, Sandhya, Pachak, Tara etc. But in our view all these Dashas are not appropriate.

Vimshottari

12-14. Beginning from Kritika, the Lords of Dashas are Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus in that order. Thus, if the Nakshatras from Kritika to the Janma Nakshatra are divided by nine, the remainder will signify the Lord of the commencing Dasha. The remaining Dashas will be of the Planets in the order, given above. In Kali Yuga the natural life-span of a human being is generally taken, as 120 years. Therefore Vimshottari Dasha is considered to be the most appropriate and the best of all Dashas.

15. The periods of Dashas of Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus are 6, 10, 7, 18, 16, 19, 17, 7 and 20 in that order.

16. To find out the remainder of the Dasha, operating at the time of birth, first find out the expired portion of the Dasha of the concerned Planet. This is done, as follows. Multiply the Dasha period of the Planet concerned by the period of the stay of Moon in Janma Nakshatra, that has expired and divide that amount by the total period of the stay of Moon in that Nakshatra. The figure in years, months etc. so arrived at will be the expired period of the Dasha. If this figure is deducted from the total period of the Dasha, we will get the Balance of Dasha at the time of birth.

Ashtottari

17-20. Mahārśi Parashara said. O Brahmin, the sages have recommended the adoption of Ashtott6th, when Rahu not being in Lagna, in any other Kendra, or Trikona to the Lord of the Lagna. From 4 Nakshatras from Ardra commences the Dasha of Sun, from 3 after that begins the Dasha of Moon, 4 after that will bring the Dasha of Mars, 3 after that the Lord of Dasha will be Mercury, 4 there from will have Saturn, as the Dasha Lord, 3 thereafter the Lord will be Jupiter, Rahu will be the Lord of the Dasha 4 Nakshatras after that and then Venus will take over the lordship of the Dasha 3 Nakshatras from the last one mentioned above. The Lord of the Dasha at birth will be determined by counting in this order up to the Janma Nakshatra. The duration of Ashtott6th Dasha for Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, Rahu and Venus are 6, 15, 8, 17, 10, 19, 12 and 21 in that order. Thus in this Dasha system only 8 Planets play the role of Dasha Lords, Ketu having been denied this privilege.

21-22. The Dashas of the various Planets have been specified above. In the case of malefic Planets the Dasha span of one Nakshatra is シ of the Dasha of the Planet. It is 1/3rd in the case of benefics. Thus the expired portion of the Dasha is calculated, according to the method, followed for Vimshottari Dasha, by multiplying the Bhayat, i.e. the expired period of the stay of Moon in the Janma Nakshatra, by the Dasha portion of the Janma Nakshatra and dividing it by Bhabhog, i.e. the total period of the stay of Moon in the Janma Nakshatra. Then the Balaance of Dasha at birth can also be ascertained. If Uttarashadha happens to be the Janma Nakshatra, the duration of its first three Padas is taken, as Bhabhog and the Dasha calculations should be done accordingly. The Dasha and calculations for Abhijit Nakshatra are done by taking the 4th Pad of Uttarashadha plus the 15th part of the beginning of Shravan. For Shravan the Bhabhog would be the total of its duration in Ghatikas minus the 1/15th part of the beginning of Shravan.

Shodshottari

23. It will be advisable to adopt the Shodshottari, if the birth is in the day in Krishna Paksh (dark half of the month), or at night in Shukla Paksh (bright half).

24-26. The Dasha may be adopted, when the Lagna is in the Hora of Moon with birth in the Krishna Paksh, or, when Lagna is in the Hora of Sun with birth in the Shukla Paksh. Count the number of Nakshatras from Pushya to the Janma Nakshatra. Divide this number by 8. The remainder will indicate the Dashas of Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Ketu, Moon, Mercury and Venus. The Dashas of the above Planets are of 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 years.

Dwadashottari

27-28. This Dasha system will be appropriate for one, whose Lagna is in the Navāmśa of Venus. Count from Janma Nakshatra to Revati. Divide this number by 8. The remainder will indicate the Dasha of the Planet concerned. The Dasha order is Sun, Jupiter, Ketu, Mercury, Rahu, Mars, Saturn, Moon. The Dashas will be of 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 and 21 years of the Planets.Panchottari (29-30) This Dasha is considered suitable for those, whose Lagna is Cancer and also in the Cancer Dvadashāńś. Count from Anuradha up to the Janma Nakshatra and divide the number by 7. The remainder will indicate the Dasha. The order of the Dasha Lords is Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Mars, Venus, Moon and Jupiter. The Dashas of the Planets are 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 years.

Shatabdik

(31-32) This Dasha system has been considered appropriate, if Lagna is Vargaottama. This happens, when Lagna in the Rāśi Kundali and the Navāmśa Lagna are in the same Rāśi.

(33-34) Count from Revati to the Janma Nakshatra and divide this number by seven. The remainder will indicate the Lords of Dashas in this order: Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. Their Dashas will be of 5, 5, 10, 10, 20, 20 and 30 years.

Chaturashiti-sama

35-36. Chaturashiti-sama Dasha is considered appropriate in cases, where the 10ths Lord is placed in 10th. Count from Swati to the Janma Nakshatra and divide this number by 7. The remainder will indicate the Dasha Lords in the following order: Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. The Dasha period of each Planet is 12 years.

Dwisaptati-sama

37-39. This Dasha system is considered suitable in cases, where the Lord of Lagna is in Lagna, or in 7th. Count from Mul to the Janma Nakshatra and divide the number by 8. The remainder will determine the Dasha Lords in the following order: Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and Rahu. In this Dasha system all the eight Planets have Dashas of 9 years each.

Shastihayani

40-41. This Dasha may be adopted in cases, where Sun is posited in Lagna. The order of Dasha Lords in this system is, as follows: Jupiter, Sun, Mars, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Rahu. The following shows the Nakshatras, falling under the various Dasha Lords. The Dashas of Jupiter, Sun and Marsare of 10 years. The remaining Planets have Dashas of 6 years each. Jupiter (Ashvini, Bharani, Kritika, Punarvasu), Sun (Rohini, Mrigashira, Ardra, U.Ashadha), Mars(Pushya, Aslesha, Magha, Revati), Moon (P.Phalguni, U.Phalguni, Hast), Mercury (Swati, Vishakah, Anuradha), Venus (Jyeshtha, Mul, P.Ashadha), Saturn (Abhijit, Shravan, 2ndishtha), Rahu (Shatabhisha, P.Bhadra, U.Bhadra).

Shat-trimshat-sama

42-43. Count from Shravan to the Janma Nakshatra and divide the number by 8. The remainder 1 etc. will indicate the Dasha Lords, whose order will be, as follows: Moon, Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Venus and Rahu. Their Dashas will be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 years. If the birth is during the day and Lagna is in the Hora of Sun and, if the birth is at night and Lagna is in the Hora of Moon, adoption of this system would be preferable.

Kaala

44-49. 5 Ghatikas before the sight of the semi-disk of the setting Sun and 5 Ghatikas after that and 5 Ghatikas before and after the rising of Sun, that is 10 Ghatikas in the evening and 10 Ghatikas in the morning, respectively. The total period of both these Sandhyas (twilight) is said to be 20 Ghatikas. The 20 Ghatikas of the night have been given the name Purna and the 20 Ghatikas of the day have been given the name Mugdha. The Sandhya at the time of sunrise is called Khanda and the Sandhya at the time of Sun’set is said to be Sudh. Both of these Sandhyas are of 10 Ghatikas each. If the birth is in Purna, or Mugdha, its past Ghatikas should be multiplied by 2 and the product should be divided by 15. The figure so arrived at should be converted into years, months etc. By multiplying it by the serial number of Sun and other Planets in their normal order, we will get the Kaal Dasha of these Planets. If the birth is during Sandhya, then its past Ghatikas should be multiplied by 4 and the product divided by 15. The figure so arrived at in terms of years, months etc. should be multiplied by the serial number of Sun and the other Planets to get the Kaal Dasha of all the nine Planets.

Chakra

50-51. If the birth is at night, the Dasha will commence from Lagna Rāśi. If the birth is during the day, the Dasha will start from the Rāśi, in which the Lord of Lagna is placed. If the birth is during Sandhya, the Dasha will begin from the Rāśi of the second House. The Dasha of each Rāśi is 10 years. As it is the Dasha system of the 12 Rāśis in the Zodiac, it has been named, as Chakra Dasha.Kala Chakra

52-53. Mahārśi Parashara said. O Brahmin! Now, after making obedience to Lord Shiva, I shall describe the Kala Chakra Dasha. Whatever was related by Lord Shiva to Goddess Parvati, is being explained by me for the use of sages to be utilized for the welfare of the people.

54-55. By drawing vertical and horizontal lines, prepare 2 Charts, Savya and Apsavya, of 12 apartments (Kosthas) each. From the second Kostha in each Kundali fix the Rāśis Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. Then Nakshatras may be incorporated in the manner, indicated hereafter. These Charts, indicative of the 12 Rāśis, are called Kala Chakra.

56-58. Write Ashvini, Bharani and Kritika in the Savya Chakra and Rohini, Mrigashira, Ardra in the Apsavya. Then incorporate the three following Nakshatras, Punarvasu, Pushya and Aslesha in the Savya and Magha, Purvaphalguni and Uttaraphalguni in the Apsavya. Then incorporate the three following, Hast, Chitra and Swati in the Savya and Vishakah, Anuradha and Jyeshtha in the Apsavya. Then incorporate Mul, Purvashadha and Uttarashadha in the Savya and Shravan, 2ndishtha and Shatabhisha in the Apsavya. Finally incorporate the last three Nakshatras, Purvabhadrapad, Uttarabhadrapad and Revati in the Savya Chakra. Now there will be 15 Nakshatras in the Savya and 12 Nakshatras in the Apsavya, (because for the 12 Rāśis there are 12 Padas of 3 Nakshatras, the Navāmśaas). The Padas of Ashvini, Punarvasu, Hast, Mul, Purvabhadrapad, Kritika, Aslesha, Swati, Uttarashadha and Revati of the Savya should be reckoned in the same manner, as the Padas of Ashvini.

59. Now I shall describe in detail, how the Deha and Jiva should be reckoned in the Padas (quarters) of the Nakshatras.

60. In the first Pad of Ashvini Aries is indicative of Deha (body) and Sagittarius is indicative of Jiva (life). And the Lords of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius are Lords of the Dashas in the order, as described before.

61. In the second Pad of Ashvini Capricorn is Deha and Gemini is Jiva and the Lords of the nine Rāśis from Capricorn to Gemini are Lords of the Dashas.

62. In the third Pad of the ten Nakshatras, beginning from Ashvini, Taurus is Deha and Gemini is Jiva. The Lords of the Rāśis Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Aries, Taurus and Gemini are Lords of the Dashas in that order.

63-64. For the 4th Pad of the 10 Nakshatras, beginning from Ashvini, Cancer is Deha and Pisces is Jiva and the Lords of the nine Rāśis from Cancer to Pisces are the Lords of Dashas.

65. In the four Padas of the 5 Nakshatras, Bharani, Pushya, Chitra, Purvashadha and Uttarabhadrapad, Deha and Jiva are the same, as for Bharani.

66. In the first Pad of Bharani Scorpio is Deha and Pisces is Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Cancer, Leo, Gemini, Taurus, Aries and Pisces are the Lords of Dashas in this order.

67. In the 2nd Pad of Bharani Aquarius is Deha and Virgo is Jiva and the Lords of Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo and Virgo are the Lords of Dashas in that order.

68. In the 3rd Pad of Bharani Libra is Deha and Virgo is Jiva and Lords of the Rāśis Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Scorpio, Libra and Virgo are the Dasha Lords in this order.

69. In the 4th Pad of Bharani Cancer is Deha and Aquarius is Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Cancer, Leo, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Sagittarius are the Dasha Lords in this order.

71-72. O Brahmin! I have thus given you the description of Savya Chakra. Now I shall give the description of Apsavya Chakra. Prepare a similar chart of 12 apartments and from the 2nd apartment onwards place the Rāśis from Scorpio onwards in the reverse order. In this chart Deha and Jiva would be the same for Rohini, Magha, Vishakah and Shravan, as for Rohini.

73-76. In the first Pad of Rohini Cancer is Deha and Sagittarius is Jiva. The Lords of the Rāśis Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo and Libra will be the Dasha Lords in this order. In the 2nd Libra will be Deha and Virgo the Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio and Scorpio will be the Dasha Lords. In the 3rd Aquarius will be Deha and Virgo Jiva. The Lords of the Rāśis Virgo, Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius will be the Dasha Lords. In the 4th Scorpio will be Deha and Pisces Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Cancer, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio will be the Lords.

77. In the 4 Padas of the Apsavya Nakshatras Mrigashira, Ardra, Purvaphalguni, Uttaraphalguni, Anuradha, Jyeshtha, 2ndishtha and Shatabhisha the Deha and Jiva and the Dasha Lords will be the same, as for Mrigashira.

78-81. In the first Pad of Mrigashira Cancer is Deha and Pisces is Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Leo and Cancer will be the Dasha Lords in this order. In the 2nd Taurus is Deha and Gemini is Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries and Taurus will be the Dasha Lords. In the 3rd Capricorn is Deha and Gemini is Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Gemini, Leo, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Pisces, Aquarius and Capricorn will be the Dasha Lords. In the 4th Aries will be Deha and Sagittarius Jiva and the Lords of the Rāśis Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus and Aries will be the Dasha Lords.

82. Mahārśi Parashara said. O Brahmin! The description of the Deha and Jiva of the Padas of the Apsavya Nakshatras and the Dasha Lords is the same, as narrated by Lord Mahadeva to Goddess Parvati.

83. Maitreya said. O Venerable Mahārśi Parashara! Now please guide me about the Dasha spans of the
Dasha Lords, described by you. Please also demonstrate, how the commencement of the Dasha, its expired and the remaining periods at the birth are to be calculated.

84. Mahārśi Parashara said. 5, 21, 7, 9, 10, 16 and 4 years are the Dasha spans of Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn.

85-86. The span of life of a person is determined from the Padas (Ańśaas) of the Nakshatra at the time of birth, or the time of query and the years allotted to the 9 Rāśis, commencing from it (the Pad of the Nakshatra). Some sages are of the view, that the person will enjoy full span of life (Purna Ayu), if his birth is at the commencement of the Padas, will have middle span of life (Madhaya Ayu), if the birth is in the middle of the Padas and short span of life (Alap Ayu), or will face death-like sufferings, if the birth is at the end of the Padas of the Nakshatra.

87-88. According to this principle, we should be acquainted with the Padas of the Nakshatras. Now I shall tell you, how the calculations are made, according to the proportion of the Padas of a Nakshatra. The number of Ashvini etc., whichever may be the past Nakshatras, should be divided by 3. Thereafter the remainder should be multiplied by 4. To the figure so made available the Pad of the present Nakshatra should be added. The product will be the Navāmśa from Aries onwards.

89. The number of years (Purna Ayu) are, as under. For the Ańśa in Aries 100 years, in Taurus 85 years, in Gemini 83 years, in Cancer 86 years. The number of years will be the same for Rāśis, situated the 5th and 9th to them.

90-91. Multiply the past Ghatikas, Palas etc. of the Pad of the Nakshatra, in which a person is born, by the existing Dasha years and divide it by 15. The result will indicate the expired period of the Dasha in years, months etc. By deducting it from the total number of years allotted, we get the Balaance of Dasha at birth. The Dasha should be taken, as commencing from that Rāśi.

92. Multiply the past Ghatikas, Palas etc. of the present Pad of the Nakshatra by the number of years and divide the product by the fourth part of Bhabhog. The years etc. so obtained may then be deducted from the total Dasha period. The result will be the Balaance of Dasha at birth in years, months etc.

93. The past Kalas (minutes) of the Navāmśa, in which Moon may be placed, should be multiplied by the years, allotted to the Dasha and the product should be divided by 200. The resulting years etc. will be the expired portion of the Dasha. By deducting them from the total number of years the Balaance of the Dasha at birth is obtained.

94-95. In the Savya Chakra the first Ańśa is called Deha and the last Jiva. The opposite is the case in the Apsavya Chakra. Therefore the calculations should be based on the Deha etc. in the Savya Chakra and on the Jiva etc. in Apsavya.
We give below the Savya and Apsavya Kala Chakra Charts. For example. The birth is in Mrigashira 4th Pad. It is in the Apsavya Kala Chakra. The Lord of Deha is Mars and that of Jiva is Jupiter. The Bhabhog of Mrigashira is 59/31 (59 Ghatikas 31 Palas) and Bhayat is 58/15 (58 Ghatikas 15 Palas). シ of the Bhabhog comes to 14/52/44. That would be the value of one Pad. Multiplying this by 3 will get Ghatikas of 3 Padas, namely 44/38/15. Deducting this from Bhayat, the past Ghatikas, Palas etc. of the 4th Pad will be 13/36/45. The full Dasha years are 100. Multiplying this by 13/36/45 we get 1300/3600/4500 = 1361/15. This divided by 15 will give the expired period at birth, namely 90 years and 9 months. See the Kala Chakra. There we count from Jiva etc. to Deha. In the 4th Pad of Mrigashira Jiva is in Sagittarius and Deha in Aries. Therefore, by deducting the total of years from Sagittarius to Gemini, namely 77, from 90 years 9 months, we get the expired period of Taurus, namely 13 years and 9 months. By deducting this from the present 16 years of Venus, we will get 2 years and 3 months, as the Balaance of Dasha at birth. Accordingly, like Vimshottari Dasha, the order of Dasha will be Taurus, Aries, Sagittarius, Scorpio etc. For Example. Suppose, that at the time of birth of a person in Kritika Nakshatra the longitude of Moon is 1r4ー50. This converted into Kalas will be 2090 at birth. The Dasha should be taken, as commencing from that. Divide the Kalas by 800 (1 Nakshatra). The result will be the 2nd Nakshatra, namely Bharani and the remainder will be 490. These will be the past Kalas of Kritika. There are 200 Kalas in one Pad (Navāmśa). Divide 490, the past Kalas of Kritika, by 200. We will then get 2, as past Padas and the remainder 90 will represent the past Kalas of the present Nakshatra. By multiplying this by 83, the Dasha years, we will get 7470, which, divided by 200, will indicate the expired portion of the Dasha, as 37 years, 4 months and 6 days. By deducting the years of Dehāńś, commencing from Taurus, in the order Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius (16+7+10+4 = 37), we will get 0 years, 4 months and 6 days. This will be the expired portion of Capricorn. Deducting this from 4, the Dasha period of Capricorn, we get the Balaance of the Dasha of Capricorn, namely 3 years, 7 months and 24 days. See in this connection the Savya Kala Chakra.Gati of Rāśis in the Kala Chakra

96-98. There are three kinds of movements (Gati) of the Rāśis in the Kala Chakra, namely Manduki, Markati and Leoavlokan. The movement of one Rāśi by jumping over one Rāśi is known, as Manduki Gati. Backward movement to the previous Rāśi is called Markati Gati. The movement of a Rāśi to the 5th and 9th Rāśi is said to be Leoavlokan.

99-100. Movement from Virgo to Cancer and from Leo to Gemini is Manduki Gati. Movement from Leo to Cancer is Markati Gati. Movement from Pisces to Scorpio and from Sagittarius to Aries is called Leoavlokan Gati.

Effects of Dashas of Rāśis, as a Result of these Gati

101-102. The effects of the Dasha of the Rāśis with Manduki Gati in the Savya Chakra are distress to friends, relations, parents and elders and there is likely to be cause for trouble from poison, weapons, thieves and enemies. In the Manduki Dasha of the Gati of a Rāśi from Leo to Gemini there is the likelihood of the death of the mother, or self, trouble from Government and possibility of brain fever.

103. The effects of the Dasha of Rāśi with Markati Gati in the Savya Chakra are loss of wealth, agricultural products and animals, death of father, or an elderly close relation and feeling of lethargy.

104-105. The effects of the Dasha of the Rāśis with Leoavlokan Gati in the Savya Chakra are possibility of injury from animals, loss of amity with friends, distress to near relations, drowning in a well, fall from animals, possibility of harm from poison, weapons and diseases and destruction of residential dwelling.

106-108. In the Dasha of the Rāśis with the Manduki Gati in the Apsavya Chakra the effects will be distress to wife and conditions, loss of children, possibility of feverish conditions and loss of position. In the Dasha of the Rāśis with the Markati Gati there may be danger from watery places, loss of position, distress from father, punishment from Government and wandering in the forests; with the Simhaavlokan there may be destruction of the dwelling and death of father etc.

109-111. If the movement is from Pisces to Scorpio, the native may suffer from fever; if from Virgo to Cancer, there may be loss of brothers and kinsmen; if from Leo to Gemini, there may be ill health of the wife; if from Leo to Cancer, the native may die; if from Sagittarius to Aries, there may be death of uncles and similar relations. If the Rāśi is conjunct with a malefic, adverse conditions may be expected in the Dasha of the Rāśi. Favourable effects will be felt in its Dasha, if the Rāśi is conjunct with a benefic.

112-113. O Brahmin! In the Kala Chakra Dasha favourable and unfavorable effects may be predicted, after taking into account the directions of the Rāśis and Planets.

114-119. If the movement is from Virgo to Cancer, good results are realized in places, located in the East and at that time journeys to the places in the North prove fruitful. Unfavorable effects will be felt in places, located in the West and the South. It will be advisable not to undertake journeys in those directions in the Dasha of these Rāśis. If the movement is from Leo to Gemini, no journey should be undertaken to places, located in the East. However, the journeys to the South-West will prove fruitful in the Dasha of those Rāśis. If the movement is from Cancer to Leo, journeys during that period to the South will prove unfavorable and result in loss and the native has to return from the South to the West. If the movement is from Pisces to Scorpio, there will distress, if the native goes to the North. The same would happen, if the movement is from Sagittarius to Capricorn. There may be ill health, imprisonment, or death, if the movement is from Sagittarius to Aries. There may be gains, comforts and property and marriage, if the movement is from Sagittarius to Scorpio. It will not be advisable to undertake journeys to the West during the related period, if the movement is from Leo to Cancer. Favourable results should be predicted, if the Rāśis are conjunct with benefics and adverse, if the Rāśis are conjunct with malefics.

120-122. According to the above-mentioned Kala Chakra, the person, born in the Ańśaas of the various Rāśis, will be, as under. Aries Ańśa brave and a thief, Taurus wealthy, Gemini learned, Cancer king, Leo respected by king, Virgo learned, Libra minister, or adviser, Sagittarius sinful, Aquarius businessman, Pisces wealthy.

123-128. If the Deha, or Jiva Rāśis are conjunct with Sun, Mars, Saturn, or Rahu, the native will die. Worse results may be expected, if the Deha and Jiva Rāśis are conjunct with two, or all of them. If there is a malefic in Deha Rāśi, the native suffers ill health; a malefic in a Jiva Rāśi will make the native very timid. If the Deha and/or Jiva Rāśi are conjunct with two malefics, there will be distress and diseases. Three malefics in the Deha and/or Jiva Rāśi will cause premature death. Four malefics in the Deha and Jiva Rāśi will cause definite death. If both the Deha and Jiva Rāśis are occupied by malefics, there will be fear from king and thieves and death of the native. If Sun is in the Deha, or Jiva Rāśi, there will be danger from fire. Moon in the Deha, or Jiva Rāśi will cause danger from water, Marsfear from weapons, Mercury fear from windy troubles, Saturn fear from Gulma (a disease), Rahu and Ketu fear from poison. If the Deha, or Jiva Rāśis are occupied by Mercury, Jupiter and Venus, the native will be wealthy, will enjoy all kinds of comforts and will have good health. Mixed results may be expected, if the Deha and Jiva Rāśis are occupied by both benefics and malefics.

129-130. In the Dasha of the Rāśis, owned by malefics, the body and soul will be in distress. The effects will be favourable in the Dasha of the Rāśis, owned by benefics. If a malefic Rāśi is occupied by a benefic Planet, or, if a benefic Rāśi is occupied by a malefic Planet, the effects will be of a mixed nature.

Effects of Kala Chakra Dasha of the Rāśis in Lagna and other Houses.

131-132. In the Kala Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in Lagna the body remains healthy and the native spends a life with many kinds of comforts. If the Lagna Rāśi is a benefic one, the good effects are realized fully. If the Lagna Rāśi is a malefic Rāśi, there is likelihood of ill health. If a Planet is in exaltation or in its own Rāśi occupies Lagna, the native is respected by the king, or government and acquires wealth.

133-134. In the Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 2nd the native receives good food, enjoys happiness of wife and children, gains wealth, achieves progress in the educational sphere, becomes a clever conversationalist and moves in good society. If the Rāśi be a benefic, good effects are realized in full, otherwise the effects would be of a mixed nature.

135-136. Happiness from co-borns, valor, patience, comforts, acquisition of gold, ornaments and clothes and recognition by the king, or government, are the effects in the Kala Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 3rd. If the Rāśi is a benefic, the good results are realized in full, otherwise adverse effects may also be experienced.

137-138. Good relations with kinsmen, acquisition of land, houses, or a kingdom, conveyances and clothes and enjoyment of sound health, are the effects of the Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 4th. If the Rāśi is a benefic one, the good effects are realized in full. If it is a malefic Rāśi, adverse results are also experienced.

139-140. Being blessed with wife and children, favours from Government, enjoyment of sound health, good relations with friends, achievement of fame, good progress in the educational sphere, patience and valor are the effects of the Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 5th. If the Rāśi is a benefic one, the good results are enjoyed in full. If the Rāśi is a malefic one, adverse effects are also experienced.

141-142. Danger from the king, fire and weapons and the possibility of suffering from diabetes, Gulma and jaundice are the effects in the Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 6th. If the Rāśi is a malefic one, the above adverse effects will be experienced in full. There will be some mitigation of the evil effects in the case of a benefic Rāśi.

143-144. Marriage, conjugal happiness, being blessed with children, gain of agricultural products, cows and clothes, favours and recognition from the king and achievement of fame, are the effects in the Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 7th. The beneficial results will be experienced in full, if the Rāśi is a benefic one. Meager good effects will be realized in the case of a malefic Rāśi.

145-146. Destruction of a residential house, distress, loss of wealth, poverty and danger from enemies are the effects of the Chakra Dasha of the Rāśi in 8th. The adverse effects will be realized in full, if the Rāśi is a malefic one. Some mitigation in evil effects may be expected in the case of a benefic Rāśi.

147-148. Felicity in respect of wife, children, house, agricultural activities, performance of good and pious deeds, progress in religious inclinations and privilege of moving in the society of great religious leaders, are the effects in Chakra Dasa of the sign in the ninth house (Dharma Bhava). These of a benefic sign. Very meager good effects will be experienced in the event of the sign being a malefic one.

149 - 150. Acquisition of kingdom, recognition from the king, happiness from wife and children, success in ventures and performance of pious deeds are the effects in the chakra dasa of the sign in the 10th house. The good results will be realized in full in case of a benefic sign. If it is a malefic sign, the good effects will be few.

151 - 152. Felicity from wife, children and kinsmen, receipt of favors from government, acquisition of wealth and clothes and association with good people, are the effects in the Chakra Dasa of the sign in the eleventh house (Labha Bhava). The good effects will be enjoyed in full in the case of a benefic sign. Very little good will happen in the sign be a malefic one.

153 - 154. Failure in efforts and ventures, pain in the body, loss of position, poverty and unnecessary expenditures are the effects in the Kalachakra Dasa of the sign in the twelfth house (Vyaya Bhava). The adverse effects will be experienced in full in the case of a malefic sign. Some good may happen if the sign be a benefic.

Chara Dasa

155 -156. Now I shall describe to you the Chara Dasa of the signs (Rasis) of the twelve houses. In this Dasa system the number of years of Dasa is reckoned from the Rasi up to the house in which its lord is posited. The peculiar feature of this system is that every three signs from Aries etc. have four padas. For the odd (1,3) padas, the counting is done from Rasi onwards up to the Rasi in which its lord is housed. For the even padas (2,4) this counting is done in the reverse order.

157 . In this system Mars and Ketu are both lords of Scorpio. Similarly Saturn and Rahu are lords of Aquarius.

158-166. Now I will tell you about the working out of the Dasha years of Scorpio and Aquarius. If both the Lords of the two Rāśis, Scorpio and Aquarius, are placed in their own Rāśis, their Dasha will be of 12 years. Otherwise the Dasha will be of the number of years, indicated by the number, counted from that Rāśi to the Rāśi, occupied by its Lord. If one Planet be in his own Rāśi and the other in any other Rāśi, the Dasha will be of the number of years counted, from the above first Rāśi to the other. If the Lords are in different Rāśis, the counting is to be done up to the Rāśi, which is stronger. The Rāśi, which has a Planet, placed in it, is considered more powerful than the Rāśi without a Planet in it. If both are with Planets in them, the one with more Planets would be considered more powerful. If both Rāśis are occupied by an equal number of Planets, the strength of the Rāśi itself should be taken into account. The principle for considering the Bala of the Rāśi is, that the Fixed Rāśi is considered stronger than the Movable one and the Dual Rāśi is considered more powerful than the Fixed Rāśi. If there is equality in the strength of the Rāśis, then to determine the number of years of Dasha counting should be done up to the Rāśi with bigger number. If one Rāśi is occupied by a Planet in exaltation, the counting should be done up to that Rāśi only. In addition 1 should be added in the number of years in the case of a Rāśi with an exalted Planet and 1 should be deducted from the number of years in the case of a Rāśi with a Planet in debilitation. The prediction should be made after calculating the Dashas in this manner.

167. If the Rāśi in 9th House is in an odd Pad, the counting should be from the Rāśi in the Lagna onwards. The counting would be in the reverse order, if the Pad is even. The Dashas of Rāśis have to be fixed, keeping this in view.
For example. In the above Libra is the Rāśi in 9th House in an odd Pad. Amongst the Lords of Lagna, Saturn and Rahu, Rahu is associated with a Planet. Therefore Rahu is more powerful than, Saturn. Therefore counting should be done up to Rahu. Aquarius is in even Pad, therefore counting has to be done from Aquarius up to Rahu in the reverse order, by which the Char Dasha for Aquarius would come to 8 years. Aries is in odd Pad. Therefore the Char Dasha for Aries will be one year. The Dasha of other Rāśis should be calculated in the same manner.

Sthira Dasa

168-169. Mahārśi Parashara said. Now I am going to describe the Sthira Dasha. In this Dasha system 7, 8 and 9 years are the Dasha spans of the Movable (Char), Fixed (Sthira) and Dual (Dvisva House) Rāśis. In this system the Dasha of the 12 Rāśis begins from the Brahm Planet Ashrit Rāśi. The Dashas are counted onwards from the odd Rāśis and in the reverse order from the even Rāśis.

170-173. Maitreya said. O great Sage! Now please enlighten me how the Brahm Planet is picked out in a chart. Mahārśi Parashara said. From amongst the Lords of 6th, 8th and 12th the Planet, who may possess the greatest strength and is placed in Lagna, or in 7th with strength, the one, placed in an odd Rāśi within sixth House from the House concerned, is called the Brahm Planet. The Lord of 8th in 8th is also accepted, as Brahm Planet. If Saturn, or Rahu/Ketu obtain Brahmatva (qualifications of Brahm Planet), they become Brahm Planet. If a number of Planets obtain Brahmatva, the one with the largest number of degrees would become Brahm Planet. If there is p6thty in the degrees of such Planets, the most powerful amongst them would become Brahm Planet.

Yogardha Dasa

174. The spans of Dashas of the Rāśis in the Yogardha Dasha system are half of the total of the spans of Char and Sthira Dashas. The Dasha will commence from the Rāśi of Lagna, or 7th, whichever is stronger. The order of the Dashas of the 12 Rāśis will be counted onwards, if the opening Dasha Rāśi is an odd one. If it be an even Rāśi, the Dashas will be in reverse order.

Kendraadi Dasa

175-176. In this system there are Dashas of Fixed Rāśis in the Kendra etc. from Lagna, or from 7th, whichever is stronger. If Lagna, or 7th with strength is placed in an odd Rāśi, the Kendra etc. are counted in the onward order. If it be in an even Rāśi, the counting will be in the backward, or reverse order. In them also the Dashas would be in the order of comparative strength of the Rāśis. The order of Dashas would be the same, as reckoned from the Atma Karak. The spans of Dashas would be the same, as they are in the Char Dasha. In calculating the years of Dashas of Planets, counting is done from the Planet to his own Rāśi. The years of Dashas would be the number, arrived at by counting up to the Rāśi of the Planet, which is stronger, or more in number.

177. If a Planet owns two Rāśis, the Dasha years will be equal to the number, which is greater, when counted from the Rāśi, occupied by him.
Notes. Under this system Dashas are of two kinds, namely Lagna Kendraadi and Atma Karak Kendraadi. There are also Kendraadi Rāśi Dasha, or Kendraadi Planet Dasha in both the Dasha systems, mentioned above.

Karak Dasa

178. The system, under which the first Dasha is of the Atma Karak and the subsequent Dashas are of the remaining 7 Karakas in their order is known, as Karak Dasha. In this system the Dasha years are equal to the number of Rāśis, counted from Lagna up to the Karak concerned.

Manduka Dasa

179-180. Under the Manduka Dasha system the Dasha commences from Lagna, or 7th House, whichever is stronger. If the Rāśi of commencement is an odd Rāśi, the Dashas of 3 Movable, 3 Fixed and 3 Dual Rāśis will be counted in the onwards order. They will be in the reverse order in the case of an even Rāśi. In this system the Dasha years will be the same, as in Sthira Dasha. In this system every Dasha is of the next 3rd Rāśi.

Shula Dasa

181-182. Some sages have designed the Shula Dasha for determining the time of death. In this system the Dasha commences from 2nd, or 8th, whichever is stronger. If the Rāśi is an odd one, the order of the Dasha Rāśis will be onwards. It will be backwards in the case of an even Rāśi. The Dasha years in this system are, as adopted for the Sthira Dasha. There is a possibility, that death appears in the Dasha of the Marak Rāśi, which has greater strength.

Trikona

183-184. In this system the first Dasha commences from the strongest amongst the Rāśis in Kona (Trikona) to Lagna (1st, 5th and 9th). This system is similar to the Char Dasha. Here also the Dashas of the Rāśis will be in the onwards order in the case of odd Rāśis and in the reverse order in the case of even Rāśis. The Dasha years will be similar to that of Char Dasha. It has been named Trikona because of the commencement of the Dasha from the Rāśis in Konas.

Dirga Dasa

185-187. In this system the order of the Dashas is, as follows: the Rāśi, occupying 9th, the Rāśis, receiving a Aspect from the Rāśi in 9th, the Rāśi in 10th, the Rāśis, receiving a Aspect from the Rāśi in 10th, the Rāśi in 11th and the Rāśis, receiving a Aspect from the Rāśi in 11th. As this system is mostly based on Aspects, it has been named, as Dirga Dasha. Three different processes are adopted for the Movable, Fixed and Dual Rāśis from 9th, 10th and 11th. According to them, Rāśi, which receives a Aspect from the Movable Rāśi, is counted backwards and the Rāśi, receiving a Aspect from the Fixed Rāśi, is counted onwards. In the case of the Dual Rāśi, if it is odd, the counting is onwards and the order is backwards in case of an even Rāśi for the Rāśis, receiving a Aspect.
Notes. The intention is, that from the point of view of Aspect the process of Rāśi, receiving a Aspect, should be started from the Rāśi, which is nearest. In this connection readers may refer to Rāśi Aspectkathan Adhyaya, Ch. 8, Verse 9 and the table after that.

Lagnaadi Rāśi Dasha

188-189. In this system there are Dashas of all the 12 Rāśis, including Lagna, in every Nakshatra. Consequently the Bhayat at birth may be multiplied by 12 and then the product should be divided by Bhabhog. The Rāśi, degree etc. so available may be added to the longitude of Lagna. From the Rāśi, becoming available by doing so, will start the Dashas of the 12 Rāśis. (If that Rāśi is odd, the counting will be onwards. It will be in the reverse order, if the Rāśi is even)

190. For finding the Balaance of Dasha at birth, multiply the expired degree etc. by the Dasha years of the first Dasha Rāśi and divide it by 30. The years etc. so arrived at may be deducted from the Dasha years. The result will indicate the Balaance of Dasha at birth in years, months etc.

Panch Swar Dasha

191-194. Beginning from Akaradhi 5 Swaras (a, i, u, e, o), write underneath them the Varnas in 6 lines. Leave out the letters ňa, a and ņa, because they are not used in names. If they are found in any name, ga may be substituted for ňa, ja for a and da for ņa for working out the Dashas and making predictions. In this manner the Swar, under which the first Varna of the name of the native is found, will determine the order of the Dashas of the five Swaras. Dashas are of 12 years for all the five Swaras. In the Dasha of every Swar there will be Antar Dashas of all the five Swaras in the same order.

Yogini Dasa

195-199. Mahārśi Parashara said. O Brahmin! I have already given you the description of Panch Swar Dasha. Now I will acquaint you with the Yogini Dasha, as described by Lord Mahadeva. There are 8 Yoginis, namely Mars, Pingal, 2ndya, Bhram6th, Bhadrika, Ulka, Siddha and Sankat.
Moon, Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Venus and Rahu are born from them. Add 3 to the Janma Nakshatra and divide it by 8. The remainder will indicate the Yogini Dasha of Mars, etc. The Dashas are of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 years. The Balaance of Dasha at birth should be worked out from the Bhayat and Bhabhog etc., as already explained earlier.
Pind, Ańśa and Nisarg

201-202. The Pind, Ańśa and Nisarg Dasha will be the same, as Pindayu, Ańśaayu and Nisargayu, the method of determination of which has already been explained previously. The order of Dashas will be, as follows. The first will be of Lagna, Sun, or Moon, whoever is stronger. The subsequent Dashas will be of Planets in Kendra to them, then of Planets in Panaphara Houses and lastly in Apoklima Houses. The Dashas and Antar Dashas of Lagna and the seven Planets will also be in the same order.

203. The effects of these Dashas will be in accordance with Ashtak Varga Bala, which subject will be dealt
with later. These Dashas are also called Ashtak Varga Dashas.

Sandhya

204. Sandhya is the Dvadashāńś Ayurdaya of the Param Ayurdaya (maximum possible life-span). In Sandhya Dasha the Dasha of all the Rāśis from Lagna onwards is of 1/12 the years of Param Ayurdaya.Pachak Dasha in Sandhya Dasha

205-206. By multiplying the Dasha years of Sandhya Dasha by 6 and dividing the product by 31, the years, months etc. so arrived at may be put in one apartment of a Table. Thereafter half of these years, months etc. may be written in the next three apartments. The remaining 8 apartments may be filled in by one third of the aforesaid years, months etc. In this manner Pachak Dasha in Sandhya Dasha of every House can be worked out and predictions may be made from it.

Tar

207-209. O Brahmin! Some sages have given consideration to Tar Dasha, which is like Vimshottari. In this Dasha Janma, Sampat etc. in their order replace Sun, Moon etc., placed in Kendraas. This Dasha is applied in those cases only, where there are Planets in Kendraas. If there are a number of Planets, the first Dasha will belong to the strongest amongst them.

210. O Brahmin! I have now completed the description of the different kinds of Dashas. I will give the description of their Antar Dashas (sub-periods) later.
