1-2. The sage said. O Brahmin! Write down a Rasi Kundali with 12 Bhavas, including Lagn.
Then insert the total of the Rekhas in all the AshtakaVargas of the Grahas in the Rasi
concerned. The AshtakaVarg with such Rekhas is called the Samuday AshtakaVarg, or the
aggregational AshtakaVarg. From this should be judged good and adverse effects of the Rasi
Kundali.

3-5. In the aggregational AshtakaVarg the Rasi, which has more than 30 Rekhas, gives
favourable effects, that, having between 25 and 30 Rekhas, produces medium effects and that
Rasi, who has less than 25 Rekhas, yields adverse effects. Auspicious functions, like marriage
etc., should be performed, when the Grah, on whose basis the time and date of functions are
performed, moves into the Rasi with favourable effects. The Rasi, which is productive of
adverse effects should be avoided for these purposes. For example, the strength of Candr
(CandraBal) is generally acceptable for all auspicious functions. Therefore auspicious
functions should be performed, or started, when Candr is in the Rasi with maximum number
of Rekhas. The Grah in the Rasi with favourable number of Rekhas produces auspicious
effects and the Grah in the Rasi with unfavourable number of Rekhas yields evil results.

6-61/2. Amongst the 12 Bhavas more than 30 Rekhas advance the effects of a Bhava, between
25 and 30 Rekhas produce medium effects and the effects of the Bhava, which contains less
than 25 Rekhas, get damaged.

Notes. From the above rules it can be interpreted, that, if there are less than 25 Rekhas in 6 th ,
8 th and 12 th Bhava, their effects become favourable. The effects will become adverse, if these
Bhavas contain more than 25 Rekhas.

7-8. If in a Rasi Kundali there are larger number of Rekhas in the 1 \ x than those in 10 l and
there are smaller number of Rekhas in the 12 th than those in the 1 1 th and Lagn contains largest
number of Rekhas, the native will be wealthy and will enjoy all kinds of comforts and luxury.

9-10. Divide the 12 Bhavas in 3 sections. There will be sufferings and distress in that part of
the life, which is represented by the section of the Rasi Kundali with more malefics. There
will be happiness etc., in the part of the life, represented by the section of the Rasi Kundali,
containing more benefics. There will be mixed results in that area of life, when the relative
section of the Rasi Kundali has equal number of benefics and malefics. The Bhavas from
Lagn up to the 4 th
represent old age.

Lagn up to the 4 th signify childhood, those from 5 th to 8 th youth and those from the 9 th to 12 th

1 1-28. There will be danger of death in the month of the Rasi (period of Surya's transit in that
Rasi), which has 7, or less than 7 Rekhas in the Samudaya AshtakaVarg. To ward off this evil

possibility of banishment from the homeland . . ., which has 19 .... Family deity should be

should be given in charity distress to kinsmen . . . , ... 22. Gold should be given in

be given in charity gains of wealth and grains etc. . . . , ... 30.

29. There will be all-round increase in wealth, happiness in respect of children and
enjoyments in the Samvatsar, month and Nakshatr of the Rasi, which has more than 30
Rekhas. . . . increase in wealth, property, children and good reputation, if the Rasi has more
than 40 Rekhas.

30-31. The Rasi, which is auspicious in AshtakaVarg Samudaya, is considered auspicious for
all auspicious functions. Consequently the auspiciousness of AshtakaVarg should be got
checked before performing any function, like marriage etc. If a Rasi is not auspicious in
AshtakaVarg, then its auspiciousness should be checked from transit effects. It is not
necessary to check transit effects, if a Rasi is auspicious in AshtakaVarg. Thus the
auspiciousness of the Rasi in the AshtakaVarg should be considered, as paramount.
