1-3. Maharishi Parasara said to Maitreya. O Brahmin! Now I will impart to you the
knowledge of a great secrecy and superior importance, which was communicated to me by
Lord Brahma himself for the benefit of the world. This is a Chakr by the name of Sudarshana,
through which Devajnas will be able to predict the favourable and unfavourable results for
every year, every month and every day from the time of birth to the time of death of a person.
Listen to this very intently.

4. O Brahmin! Take a point and from it draw three circles. Within the circles draw 12 lines, so
as to provide 12 Bhavas within each circle. This is how Sudarshana Chakr is drawn.

5-6. In the first circle (innermost) place the 12 Bhavas from Lagn with Grahas, posited there.
In the circle next to the innermost circle place the 12 Bhavas from the Rasi of Candr with the
Grahas in them. In the third circle place the 12 Bhavas from the Rasi of Surya with Grahas in
them. Thus there will be 3 Rasis in each Bhava of the Chakr.

7-9. The significant aspect of this Chakr is, that Lagn, Candr and Surya represent the first
Bhava. The 2 nd , 3 rd etc. up to 12 th from Candr and Surya will deal with the same subject, as
they do, when reckoned from Lagn. Then the results should be assessed, according to the
Grahas in each Bhava. In this form of Rasi Kundali Surya is considered auspicious in the first
Bhava and inauspicious, or malefic in other Bhavas. The malefics do not produce evil effects,
if they are in their exaltation Rasi. In this manner predictions should be made, after
considering the benefic and malefic natures of the Grahas, their disposition and aspects from
and on them.

10. A Bhava gets advancement, if it is occupied, or aspected by the Lord, or a benefic. The
Bhava, which is occupied, or aspected by a malefic, is harmed.

11-13. The effects of a Bhava will be in accordance with the Grah occupying it, or in
accordance with the Grah aspected, if no Grah is in occupation of the Bhava. The effects of a
Bhava, occupied by a benefic, will be auspicious and the Bhava, occupied by a malefic, will
be inauspicious. Effects of the aspects will be the same. If a Bhava is influenced both by
benefics and malefics, the results will depend on the majority amongst the benefics and
malefics. If the number of benefics is larger than the number of malefics, the results will be
auspicious. If reverse is the case, inauspicious, or evil effects may be expected. If there are
equal number of malefics and benefics, those with greater strength will influence the results of
that Bhava. Mixed results should be declared, if there be no difference in the strength of
malefics and benefics. The same would apply to aspects.

14. The effects should be declared, according to its Lord, if the Bhava is neither occupied, nor
aspected by a Grah.

15-16. A natural benefic loses his benevolence, if he is in more malefic Vargas. Similarly a
natural malefic loses his malevolence, if he is in more benefic Vargas (SaptaVarg). A Grah's
own Rasi, his exaltation Rasi and benefic Vargas are considered auspicious. And malefic and
the Vargas of an enemy and debilitated Rasi are considered inauspicious.

17. The sage said, that the results should be declared only after assessing the auspiciousness
and inauspiciousness of all the Bhavas.

18. Maitreya asked. O Venerable sage! Kindly enlighten me on one point. If all the Bhavas
are judged in accordance with the Sudarshana Chakr, why many learned sages have advocated
declaration of effects from the Bhavas, reckoned from Lagn in Rasi Kundali?

19-20. The sage replied. The results should be declared in accordance with the Sudarshana
Chakr, only when Surya and Candr being in separate Rasis different from the Rasi of Lagn. If
amongst Lagn, Surya and Candr, all the three, or two of them are in the same Rasi, the
judgment of effects should be made from the Rasi Kundali only.

(21-23) The sage said. O Brahmin! Now I will tell you about the effects, produced every year
and every month by the twelve Bhavas in their Dasas and Antardasas, according to
Sudarshana Chakr. Under this system every one of the twelve Bhavas, beginning from the 1 st ,
is allotted a Dasa period of one year. Thus every year in 12 years a Bhava becomes Lagn of
the year and the remaining become 2 nd , 3 rd and so on. Every year every Bhava will have
Antardasa of one month. By following the method of Lagn of the year here also, there will be
a Lagn of the month. The first Antardasa will be of the first Bhava and then will follow for 12
months the Antardasas of the other Bhavas, every Bhava assuming the role of Lagn by turn.
Every Bhava gets Pratyantar Dasa of 2Vi days and Vidasa of 12V2 Ghatikas. The same method
is to be adopted forjudging the effects of Bhavas in Pratyantar Dasas and Vidasas.

24-26. At the time of commencement of a Dasa, if there be benefic in the 1 st , 4 th , 7 th , 10 th , 5 th ,
9 th and 8 th , favourable effects will be experienced in the concerned year, month etc. The
Bhava, which is occupied by only Rahu, or Ketu, becomes harmful. The same will be the fate
of the Bhava, which is occupied by a larger number of malefics. If there be benefics in Bhavas
other than the 12 th , or 6 th , the Bhava concerned will produce favourable effects. In other
words, if the benefics be in the 12 th , or 6 th from the Bhava concerned, unfavourable effects
will be derived in the related year, month etc. If there be malefics in the 3 rd , 6 th and 1 1 th from
the Bhava, assuming the role of Lagn, then these three Bhavas will produce auspicious results.
The effects can be ascertained for every year, month etc. in this manner. The total number of
years in Vimsottari Dasa are 120 years. After every 12 years the same method of determining
the Dasas, Antardasas etc. has to be repeated for Lagn and other Bhavas.

27-28. After ascertaining the effects of the years, months etc. in accordance with the
Sudarshana Chakr, assessment of effects for the years, months etc. should be made on the
basis of AshtakaVarg. The benefic, or malefic effects will be full, if the assessment from both
produces the same results. If they are different, the comparative strength of both should be
taken into account to declare the final results.
