Chapter 85 Inauspicious Births

बृहत्पाराशरहोराशास्त्रम् अध्यायः ८५ (अथऽशुभजन्मकथनाध्यायः)

अथऽशुभजन्मकथनाध्यायः ॥ ८५॥

अथाऽन्यत् संप्रवक्ष्यामि सुलग्ने सुग्रहेष्वपि ।
यदन्यकारणेनापि भवेज्जन्माऽशुभप्रदम् ॥ १॥

दर्शे कृष्णाचतुर्दश्यां विष्ट्यां सोदरभे तथा ।
पितृभे सूर्यसंक्रान्तौ पातेऽर्केन्दुग्रहे तथा ॥ २॥

व्यतीपातादिदुर्योगे गण्डान्ते त्रिविधेऽपि वा ।
यमघण्टेऽवभे दग्धयोगे त्रीतरजन्म च ॥ ३॥

प्रसवस्य त्रिकारेऽपि ज्ञेयं जन्माऽशुभप्रदम् ।
शान्त्या भवति कल्याणं तदुपायं च वच्म्यहम् ॥ ४॥

1-4. The Venerable Sage said. O Maitreya! Now I will describe to you the circumstances, in
which the births are inauspicious in spite of Lagn and the Grahas being well disposed.
Although Lagn may be well disposed, births will be inauspicious, if they take place on
Amavasya (last day of the Krishna Paksha), on Chaturdasi (14 th Tithi), in Krishna Paksha
(dark half of the month), in Bhadra Karan, in the Nakshatr of the brother, in the Nakshatras of
father and mother, at the time of entry of Surya in a Rasi, the time of Pata, at the time of solar
and lunar eclipses, at the time of Vyati Pata, in Gandantas of all the three kinds, in
Yamaghant, Tithikshaya, in Dagdha Yog etc. The birth of a son after three daughters and birth
of a daughter after three sons and the birth of a freak are inauspicious. But there are remedial
measures for obtaining relief from the evil effects of such births, which are being described in
the following chapters.
