1. For finding out the span of the Antar Dasha of a Planet in the Dasha of the same, or another Planet multiply the Dasha years of the former with the Dasha years of the latter and divide the product by the total Dasha years of all the Planets. For finding out the span of the Pratyantar Dasha of the same, or any other Planet in the Antar Dasha of another Planet multiply the years etc. of the Antar Dasha with the Dasha years of the other Planet and divide the product by the total Dasha years of all the Planets. The figure so available in months etc. will represent the Pratyantar Dasha of the former.

2. In every Dasha the first Antar Dasha belongs to the Lord of the Dasha. Then the further Antar Dashas belong to the other 8 Planets in the same order, as followed for the Dashas. The same applies to Pratyantar Dasha.

The Antar Dashas of Char Planets in Char etc. Dasha

3-4. The Antar Dashas of the Charadi Kendraadi Dasha of the Planets are worked out by dividing the Dasha years by 9. The first Dasha will inv6thably be of the Lord of the Dasha. Thereafter there will be Antar Dashas of Planets, placed in Kendraas, Panapharas and Apoklimas, respectively, according to their strength.
Antar Dashas of Rāśis

5. The Antar Dashas of Rāśis is worked out by dividing the Dasha years by 12. Pratyantar Dashas of the Antar Dashas are also calculated in the same manner.

6. The Antar Dashas will start from the Dasha Rāśi, or from the Rāśi 7th there from, whichever is stronger. The Antar Dashas are in the onwards order, if the Dasha Rāśi is odd and in the reverse order, if it is even.

7-12. O Brahmin! Now I will acquaint you with the special characteristics of the order of the Antar Dashas of the Rāśis. If the Dasha Rāśi is a Movable one, the Antar Dashas of the 12 Rāśis are in the onwards, or reverse order. If the Dasha Asraya Rāśi is a Fixed one, the Antar Dashas will start from it and thereafter there will be an Antar Dasha of every sixth Rāśi. If the Dasha Ashraya Rāśi is a Dual one, the first Antar Dasha will belong to it. Thereafter there will be Antar Dashas of Rāśis in Kendra to it, Rāśis in Kendra to the 5th from it and Rāśis in Kendra to the 9th from it. In the case of all kinds of Rāśis, namely Movable, Fixed, or Dual, the order will be onwards, if the Dasha Asraya Rāśi is an odd one and in the reverse order, if it is an even one. The so called Dasha Asraya Rāśi is known, as Pak Rāśi. In the first order Rāśi, which is Pak Rāśi, is also called Bhog Rāśi. Later, if the Dasha Prad Rāśi is even, then the Bhog Rāśi will be that, which is at the same Rāśi distance, as the Dasha Asraya Rāśi is from the Dasha Prad Rāśi. For the Char, Sthir and Trikona Dasha, the Pak and Bhog should be determined in this manner. If Pak and Bhog Rāśis are associated with malefics, there will be pain in the body and mental agony. There will be enjoyment, if they are associated with benefics. In the Kala Chakra Dasha, like the Vimshott6th Dasha system, the span of Dasha should be multiplied by the span of the Dasha of the Rāśi, whose Antar Dasha is required and the product should be divided by the total Dasha years of (all) the Rāśi(s). The years, months etc. as arrived at will represent the Antar Dasha of the Rāśi concerned.

13-16. Now I will tell you the method of working out the Antar Dashas in the Pinda, Ańś and Nisarg Dashas. The Lord of Dasha is Dasha Pachak of full part, the Planet, associated with, is Pachak of part, the Planet in Trikona from him is Pachak of l/3 part and the Planet in the 4th and 8th from him are Pachak of シ part, the Planet in the 7th from him is Pachak of l/7 part of the Dasha. No Planet in any other House is Antar Dash Pachak. In this manner there are Antar Dasha Pachakas in the above-mentioned Houses from the various Houses, including Lagna. In any of such Houses, if there are more than one Planet, then the one, who is the strongest amongst them will be the Pachak. Take the fractions and reduce them in equivalent fractions with a common denominator. Add up the aliquot parts of the Dasha, representative of the various numerators, leaving out the denominators. The Antar Dashas will be arrived at, when the various aliquots are converted into years, months etc. within the main Dasha and divided by the above sum. (The calculations, given above, are not the literal translation of the text in the verses concerned, but their actual meaning and sense. This has been got confirmed by checking up with similar information, given in Kalyana Varmas Saravali and Varamihirs Brihat Jatak)
