While the BJP won the state as the exit polls had predicted, the victory has not been sweet as they had a focused Congress Party sniping at its heels.
As the cacophony of the Gujarat elections dies down, we can leave the electoral pundits to analyse the statistics of the verdict of the people. While they study the ups and downs and the shifts in vote percentages, and what these signify for the country in the future, political parties begin an analysis of their own. They look back at the campaign strategies and try to determine what their takeaway should be.
In this, the Congress Party comes away with a moral victory. It has not only restricted the BJP to only 99 seats in the Prime Minister’s home state, it has done so with a clean and positive campaign which stayed people-centric and issue-based. In his first-ever interview with the foreign media, Rahul Gandhi had many years ago condemned the “divisive” politics in India, and had portrayed himself as a unifier of the country. In his Gujarat campaign, he kept that promise and gave us hope for the future.
By connecting with the people of Gujarat, Rahul Gandhi gave the BJP leaders a scare in their own den, forcing them onto the backfoot, requiring the Prime Minister to personally address more than 40 rallies, the party president, Amit Shah, to stay in the state for more than two months and deploying all Union Cabinet ministers and the party’s chief ministers to come and campaign in an election which should have been a cakewalk for the ruling party. Rahul Gandhi stood alone against the BJP machinery and its strongman, Prime Minister Narendra Modi — an encounter truly reminiscent of the battle between David and Goliath.
While the BJP won the state as the exit polls had predicted, the victory has not been sweet as they had a focused Congress Party sniping at its heels. Coming a close second, the Congress and its new leader Rahul Gandhi have been the main talking point in the media, leaving with the BJP with a lot of introspection to do.
With a new president in place, the Congress Party’s workers are enthused and energised. The results have given them a new josh and utsah. A reinvented Rahul Gandhi rolled up his sleeves and went to work in the state a few months ago, criss-crossing the villages and towns of Gujarat, connecting with the people at the grassroots. This was so much at variance with the massive rallies that were held by the BJP, from where its leaders talked down to the people.
Many long years ago, another Congressman had chosen to work among the people, live amidst them and understand them so that he could represent them. He had led the country to light and freedom. Mahatma Gandhi had also mentored younger Congressmen at that time, to follow his example and connect with the people, to travel through the countryside and get to know India firsthand so that they could truly speak for the people. Once the young Congressmen, among them Rahul’s great-grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru, adopted this philosophy, they were able to rally the people with them and together fight against the oppression of the British.
The difference in the campaigning styles of the two leaders who find themselves at the centrestage of Indian politics at present is extremely stark. The Prime Minister, the strongman of his party, backed by the might and money of the ruling party, one of the richest in India, on the one hand, and Rahul Gandhi, the young scion of India’s oldest and most influential political family, on the other. They come from different backgrounds, opposing ideologies and have a disparate vision of India.
They speak a completely different language — the threatening, vitriolic and divisive speeches of the Prime Minister, and the civil, respectful and unifying address of the challenger. Rahul Gandhi remained determined, through the Gujarat campaign, to keep the discourse civil and respectable and resisted all attempts of the BJP to provoke him to descend to their communal and poisonous rhetoric.
The BJP leaders thundered at the crowds, creating a fear of the “other”, while Rahul mingled with the people and embraced them. The PM abused him derisively, calling Rahul a shehzada, alluding to his privileged birth, while he turned the tables on him, using his winning ways to become a shehzada of the hearts of the people.
The BJP threatened to create a “Congress-mukt Bharat”, while Rahul Gandhi reassured the masses that there was a place for every ideology and that he would attempt to win them over to his vichardhara through discourse.
The abuse and the vitriolic attacks are not new. Rahul Gandhi has been abused by the BJP ever since he entered politics. In an interview after the Gujarat elections, Rahul expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister Modi for having made him a stronger person by attacking him over the years. “I would not be where I am, if it were not for the PM attacking me,” he said.
The Gujarat verdict has also silenced Rahul Gandhi’s detractors. He has emerged the main challenger of the Prime Minister and the likeliest candidate to lead an anti-BJP alliance going into the general election in 2019 to stem the saffron tide that threatens to destroy the country.

पहली बार पराशर ऋषि की पद्धति का विस्तार के साथ सोदाहरण वर्णन इन्टरनेट पर किया जा रहा है, जो कर्णाटक, उत्तर प्रदेश, बिहार, आदि में कई वर्षों से पढ़ाया जा रहा था। किन्तु केवल वही व्यक्ति इस पद्धति से लाभ उठा सकते हैं जो इस प्राचीन पद्धति को सीखने का धैर्य और निष्पक्ष मानसिकता रखते हैं। वैदिक ज्योतिष में कई समानांतर विधियाँ हैं; प्रस्तुत लेख में सभी विधियों का वर्णन नहीं है। केवल मौलिक पाराशरी पद्धति की ही व्याख्या यहाँ दी जा रही है, सर्वाधिक मौलिक और आसान अवधारणाओं का ही प्रयोग किया गया है, विस्तार से बचने का प्रयास किया गया है। आने वाले दिनों में लेख और भी बढेगा। ऋषियों द्वारा बताये गए फलित ज्योतिष के सर्वाधिक महत्वपूर्ण और उपेक्षित साधनों की ही व्याख्या सोदाहरण की जा रही है, जैसा कि बृहत् पराशर होरा शास्त्र में वर्णन है : दशा प्रवेश चक्र, वर्ष प्रवेश चक्र, सुदर्शन चक्र पद्धति तथा भृगु संहिता एवं नाडी ग्रंथों से सम्बन्ध, आदि।
जन्म की तारीख :- 19:11:1917
जन्मकाल :- 23:11 IST (भारतीय मानक समय)। यही समय इंटरनेट में और उससे बाहर प्रचारित है, और यह लगभग सही भी है।
जीवनी :- यहाँ से आरम्भ करें : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indira_Gandhi
जन्म स्थान :- आनंद भवन, प्रयाग (इलाहाबाद), भारत ; 25°:27':34".078 उत्तर ; 81°:51':36".454 पूर्व (जन्म कक्ष का शुद्ध मान)

कुण्डली की जाँच द्वारा जन्मकाल का परिशोधन
कुछ लोगों का कहना है की जन्मकाल की शुद्धि का प्रयास नहीं करना चाहिए। यह विचार गलत है। बृहत् पराशर होरा शास्त्र (BPHS) और जैमिनी सूत्र जैसे वैदिक ज्योतिष के अन्य ग्रंथों में जन्मकाल-परिशोधन की कई विधियां बतलाईं गयीं हैं। लेकिन अब ये विधियां प्रासंगिक नहीं हैं, क्योंकि लोग अब गर्भाधान-संस्कार तथा सूतिका-गृह के रिकॉर्ड सुरक्षित नहीं रखते (गर्भाधान-संस्कार तो अब होता ही नहीं जिस कारण आधान-लग्न का ज्ञान नहीं रहता) और शिशु-जन्म की विधियों में भी परिवर्तन हो चुका है। लेकिन अब हम घटनाओं की जांच कंप्यूटर की सहायता से करके जन्मकाल को सुधार सकते हैं। BPHS का पूर्ण लाभ उठाने के लिए जन्मकाल सेकंड के सौंवे हिस्से तक शुद्ध होना चाहिए, जो की प्रस्तुत लेख में आगे दिखाया जाएगा। एसा करना कठिन अवश्य है, लेकिन असंभव नहीं। और यदि एसा सम्भव न लगे या समय न रहे तो वैकल्पिक शास्त्रीय विधि भी इस लेख में स्पष्ट की गयी है।
जन्मकाल-परिशोधन का प्रयास करने से पहले चार नियमों का ध्यान रखना चाहिए :
नियम-1 : जन्मकाल में न्यूनतम परिवर्तन का प्रयास होना चाहिए। यदि एक या दो मिनट से अधिक परिवर्तन की आवश्यकता प्रतीत हो तो कोई प्रयास ही नहीं करना चाहिए।
नियम-2 : जब तक लग्न-कुण्डली (डी ) जैसे निचले वर्ग संतोषजनक परिणाम नहीं देने लगे तब तक ऊंचे वर्गों द्वारा जन्मकाल परिशुद्धि का प्रयास न करें।
नियम-3 : जन्मकाल परिशुद्धि के लिए केवल अत्यंत महत्वपूर्ण शुभ या अशुभ घटनाओं का ही प्रयोग करें, क्योंकि महत्वपूर घटनाओं द्वारा स्पष्ट सूचक प्राप्त होते हैं।
नियम-4 : जन्मकाल-परिशोधन हेतु केवल सर्वाधिक प्रसिद्ध और जाँचे-परखे साधनों का ही प्रयोग करें, जैसे कि विंशोत्तरी का, न कि संदेहास्पद या प्रायोगिक साधनों का।
घटना-1 : मृत्यु
प्रस्तुत मामले में स्वर्गीय इंदिरा गान्धी की मृत्यु से आरम्भ करें (क्योंकि मृत्यु सर्वाधिक महत्वपूर्ण घटना है)। तारीख 31:10:1984 है। 9 बजे के आसपास 23 बुलेट उनके शरीर को छेद कर आर-पार निकल गये, और 7 बुलेट शरीर में फँस कर रह गए। 9:30 में उन्हें अस्पताल लाया गया और 14:20 अपराह्न मृत्यु की घोषणा की गयी। अतः औसत समय 11:35 दोपहर से कुछ पहले का प्रयोग प्रस्तुत लेख में किया गया है। मृत्यु काल में 160 मिनट की अनिश्चयता है, लेकिन लेख में आगे हम अधिक निश्चित काल वाली घटनाओं का उपयोग करेंगे। पहले मृत्यु के उपरोक्त औसत काल को ही कुण्डली सॉफ्टवेयर के इनपुट डाटा फॉर्म के दाहिनी और के इष्टकाल खानों में भरें।
श्री पी वी आर नरसिंह राव (बोस्टन, USA) द्वारा बनाया गया मुफ्त JHora सॉफ्टवेयर भी इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है जिसके लिए चुनें : Preferences >Related to Calculations >Set calculations options as recommended by Vinay Jha ।
लेकिन केवल Kundalee Software का ही BPHS के सबसे अच्छे उपकरण के लिए इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है जो है दशा प्रवेश चक्र या DPC (Dasha Pravesha Chakra or Dashaa Onset Charts). अतः यह निबंध केवल Kundalee सॉफ्टवेयर के संदर्भों पर आधारित है।

D-1 : प्रथम वर्ग : लग्न-कुण्डली
आयुर्दा : अंशायु , निसर्गायु , पिण्डायु
जन्म-कुण्डली के भावचलित चक्र D1 में शनि निधन-तारा आश्लेषा में कर्तरी-योग युक्त है , और शनि-महादशा में मृत्यु हुई । बुध भी निधन-तारा में और चन्द्र जन्म-तारा में थे , अन्य सभी ग्रह शुभ ताराओं में थे । शनि, बुध और चन्द्र में मारक बनने की प्रतियोगिता थी, जिसमें निम्न कारणों से शनि का पलड़ा भारी पडा :
अंशायु मंगल महादशा में और बुध अन्तर्दशा में था (1939.6), मंगल 2H (द्वितीय भाव) में थे किन्तु योग-कारक थे, अतः मारक नहीं थे ।
निसर्गायुगुरु (बृहस्पति) महादशा में और चन्द्र अन्तर्दशा में था (1965.63) । बृहस्पति भी मारक नहीं थे, जैसा की नीचे स्पष्ट किया गया है ।
पिण्डायु शनि महादशा में और शनि अन्तर्दशा में था (1969.96) । शनि निश्चित तौर पर मारक थे, जैसा की नीचे स्पष्ट किया गया है । और शनि ने वास्तव में मारा भी, लेकिन अपनी अन्तर्दशा में नहीं , क्योंकि किसी महादशाकारक ग्रह की अपनी ही अन्तर्दशा में कोई नया ग्रह-फल नहीं जुड़ता (क्योंकि कोई ग्रह किसी एक समय में एक ही बार फल देगा), जबकि अन्तर्दशा किसी अन्य ग्रह का हो तो महादशाकारक-ग्रहफल में अन्तर्दशाकारक-ग्रहफल जुड़कर कुल फल बनाता है । अतः शनि महादशा में किसी मारक अन्तर्दशाकारक ग्रह को मृत्यु का कारक होना चाहिए । राहु सर्वाधिक अशुभ मारक सिद्ध होतेहैं हैं, क्योंकि राहु 8L (अष्टमेश) थे और 6H में थे ; त्रिकस्थ (दुष्ट स्थानों 6H , 8H , 12H में स्थित) अन्य ग्रह थे 5L (पंचमेश) केतु , लग्नेश चन्द्र, और 4L + 11L शुक्र , जबकि 8L राहु उन सबसे अधिक मारक थे । राहु के राशीश गुरु राहु के शत्रु थे । उनकी मृत्यु शनि महादशा और राहु अन्तर्दशा में हुई । राहु के बाद मारक की सूची में चन्द्र, शुक्र और केतु में प्रतियोगिता थी, जिसमें चन्द्र अधिक मारक थे क्योंकि मारक शनि से चन्द्र का परस्पर स्थान सम्बन्ध था । अतः मृत्यु कालीन प्रत्यंतरदशा चंद्रमा की थी । इस प्रकार अन्य विवरणों का विस्तार पाठक स्वयं कर सकते हैं । यद्यपि D-1 की विम्शोत्तरी मृत्यु की व्याख्या तो करती है, फिर भी कुछ अनिश्चयता रह जाती है, जैसे की सूक्ष्मदशा में राहु के बदले शुक्र की संभावना । अतः जन्मकालीन D1 द्वारा 100 % निश्चयता के साथ साथ फल की व्याख्या संभव नहीं है. इसके दो कारण हैं : जन्मकाल में अशुद्धि, और दशारम्भ चक्र (DAC , दशा प्रवेश चक्र) का प्रभाव , जिसकी जांच आगे करेंगे ।
शुभ / अशुभ वर्गांकों की गलत व्याख्याएं बृहत् पाराशर होराशास्त्र के टीकाकारों ने दी है। उन्होंने केवल ग्रहों की उच्च-नीचादि का ध्यान रखा, किन्तु अन्यान्य तथ्यों की उपेक्षा की। यह एक स्थूल शॉर्टकट है। शुभ / अशुभ भावों में ग्रहों की स्थिति तथा ग्रहों पर अन्य ग्रहों का प्रभाव (सम्बन्ध, दृष्टि, योग, आदि) का भी महत्व होता है। प्रस्तुत सन्दर्भ में मंगल, बुध बृहस्पति,चन्द्रमा और शनि (तथा राहु भी, यदि शनि महादशा में वास्तविक अन्तर्दशा का ध्यान रखा जाय) की परस्पर तुलना आवश्यक है। दशवर्गों में सर्वाधिक अशुभ राहु है, शनि भी अशुभता में राहु से कुछ ही पीछे है, जबकि मंगल मुख्यतः शुभ है और शेष तीन ग्रह मिश्रित प्रकृति के हैं । चूँकि अंशायु, निसर्गायु और पिण्डायु में राहु दशाकारक नहीं हैं, और डी-१ (प्रथम वर्ग या लग्न कुंडली) में अष्टमेश राहु 6H (छठे घर) में विपरीत राज योग (VRY) कारक हैं, निष्कर्ष यही है कि राहु और शनि ही अंशायु, निसर्गायु और पिण्डायु की दशाओं में सर्वाधिक मारक हैं, किन्तु अंततः शनि ही प्रधान मारक हैं क्योंकि अंशायु, निसर्गायु और पिण्डायु कि महादशाओं में शनि कि महादशा तो है लेकिन राहु कि महादशा नहीं है । शनि महादशा कि सभी अंतर्दशाओं में राहु की अन्तर्दशा सर्वाधिक मारक है क्योंकि दशवर्गों (D 1-2-3-7-9-10-12-16-30-60 वर्गों) में राहु सबसे अधिक मारक हैं । [इस कुंडली के SBC (सर्वतो-भद्र-चक्र) में सबसे अधिक वेध "भ" अक्षर पर है : छठे भाव (6H) में बैठे राहु-शुक्र-चन्द्र तथा 12H में बैठे केतु । अतः भिंडरावाले उनकी मृत्यु के लिए सबसे अधिक अशुभ व्यक्ति थे । D-30 (त्रिंसांश वर्ग) में भी "भ" ही 2H में बैठे मंगल-राहु-केतु, 8H में शुक्र, 2L (द्वितीयेश) बृहस्पति , तथा 11H में चन्द्रमा से वेध के कारण सर्वाधिक अशुभ अक्षर है । पांच अशुभ वेध मृत्यु कारक होता है, जबकि D1 में चार तथा D३० में छ अशुभ वेध "भ" पर हैं ।]
D1(प्रथम वर्ग) की विंशोत्तरी
D1 की लग्न-कुंडली में विंशोत्तरी के पांच ग्रह मृत्यु काल में थे : शनि-राहु-चन्द्र-राहु-शनि ।
बायीं ओर के चित्र में D1-भावचलित चक्र है (भावचलित चक्र केवल प्रथम वर्ग में ही होता है।) प्रस्तुत आलेख में सुदर्शन-चक्र पद्धति का प्रयोग किया गया है, जिसका विवरण इसी आलेख के "सुदर्शन चक्र" शीर्षक में देखें । इस पद्धति के अंतर्गत लग्न-कुंडली (जिसमे लग्न ही प्रथम भाव है), सूर्य-कुंडली (जिसमे सूर्य ही प्रथम भाव है), तथा चन्द्र-कुंडली (जिसमे चन्द्र ही प्रथम भाव है) का सम्मिलित फल दर्शाया जाता है ।
D1 लग्न-कुंडली में शनि ७ और ८ भावों के स्वामी हैं (अर्थात् , 7L + 8L), एवं लग्न में अति-शत्रु राशिस्थ हैं ।
MD (mahaa-dashaa) planet Saturn is a killer by dint of owning 7H and 8H, and damags the prospects of lagna by sitting there bitter enmically. Saturn's MD had a great rajayoga in real life which is not clear so strongly in birth-time D1 in spite of four argalas of Saturn and will become clear only after rectification when we will be able to construct Dashaa Pravesha Chakras.
AD (antar-dashaa) planet Rahu is 8L and sits enmically in 6H, hence a killer.
PD (pratyantar) planet Moon is lagnaesha, sitting in enemy's house with killer 8L Rahu in enmical 6H. There, Venus is also malefic, having kendresha-dosha and 11L, and in enmical house. Hence, malefic Moon.
SD (sookshma) planet is again Rahu, a killer.
PrD (Praana Dashaa) planet is Saturn.
First Stage of Rectification of Birth Time : Using Natal D1
In the VIMSHOTTARI table on Kundalee software, on the right hand side there is a list of five dashaa levels with leftover time of dashaas shown. In Praana Dashaa line, there are two buttons with '<' and '>' captions. Clicking the '<' button will automatically change birth time so that the onset time of running Praana Dashaa is obtained, while clicking the '>' button will change birth time so that the ending moment of running Praana Dashaa is obtained. These changes in birth time will be shown in the input data form's text boxes for birth time, esp the text boxes for minute and second. You must wait for a few seconds because hundreds of repetitions will be needed to compute the correct onset and ending moments.
For getting onset time of Saturn's PrD, click '<' , we get 23:11:46.431866857 as the birthtime needed for getting Saturn's PrD onset time at the time of late Indira Gandhi's death.
Add few seconds to the time obtained above, e.g. enter 23:11:55 as birth time in main data form and click SHOW > Shodash3 > Shodashvarga, and now you will see Saturn's onset time in PrD line of VIMSHOTTARI page. Now, click '>' butoon and after a few seconds you will find the birth time needed for ending moment of Saturn's PrD for the time of death. In this case, you will find 23:13:03.80928764653.
Thus, the durationof Saturn's PrD from onset to ending moment is from 23:11:50.22944 to 23:13:07.60226 as birth time, difference of 77.37742078949 seconds.
A small independent text box will automatically open while performing above operations, titled "Degrees of Planets in Selected Varga excluding rasis". In it, Saturn's degree is shown as "Satu : 24.24461". Divide it with 30 degrees and multiply the result with 77.37742079 : you will get 62.53284633.
Add it to onset time 23:11: 46.431866857, you will get 23:12:48.9647131853 as the = time of main fruit of Saturn. About one millisecond of computational error is possible in above results.
Theoretical basis of this basis is to be found in the initial portion of BPHS's Dashaa-phala-adhyaaya where we are told that the dashaa-phala of a planet is obtained according to longitudes of a planet : if the planet is in initial dreskaana its fruits come early, and so on. The verses are crude but this method is highly accurate, and very slight errors come up. The time of death of Late Indira Gandhi is also not very accurate.
Rectified Birth -Time : Instead of the mean time of death as 11:35 AM, if we use lower limit of 9:10 AM and then upper limit of 14:20 PM as time of death, we get different times for the main fruit of Saturn in its PrD, which show
±4.040 seconds of fluctuation in birthtime from the mean time of 23:12::48.9647132. Maximum amount of error in this time is ±4.040 seconds. Since we are not sure of exact time of death, we must use other events for further rectification. But before proceeding further, let us check the accuracy of above finding on the basis of the most accurate and stringent criterion of Parashari method : Dashaa Pravesha Chakras(DPC,or Dashaa Onset Charts).
Second Stage of Rectification : Dashaa Onset Charts of D1
In Kundalee's main data form, enter the time of birth as 23:12:48.9647132 which is average time obtained above, and in the right hand side boxes for 'Desired Time' in data form enter 11:35 am as the time of death which is mean of both extremes of possible times. After getting VIMSHOTTARI page, click Dashaarambha button, many pages will open up. In the 'Dashaa Timing' page, click 'MD Start' button, following picture will open up.
D1's Saturn MD onset bhaavachalita chart left.
In it Saturn (MD planet) is lord of 6 and 7 houses and sits enmically in 9th house, hence a killer. Killer in house of Dharma means issues related to Dharma will be cause of death or death-like situation. But Saturn is conjunct with Venus there which is neutral to Saturn and is exalted in the house of Fortune, being lord of 3rd and 10th. Hence, although Saturn was a killer for her, it was close relative of exalted Venus and therefore highly benefic for 3rd house of valour and 10th house of power and glory since Mar 1969 when she vanquished old guards in Congress and captured absolute power of a vast country. Saturn had argala in Mercury and Moon whose AD were best periods for her during Saturn's MD.
AD onset D1 bhaavachalita chart at the time of death has Rahu AD with Rahu in 8H.
PD onset has 12L Moon in 10H with Moon's PD, 7L Rahu accompanied Moon. Rahu and Moon were malefics but strong.
SD onset chart of Rahu has bhaavaheena Rahu in 6H.
PrD onset chart of Saturn has exalted Saturn in 6H : neecha planet in 6H is yoga giver but uchcha planet there is malefic. Sun there is strong but bitter enemy of dashaa-kaaraka Saturn.
Correct dashaa onset charts for all five levels of Vimshottari must conform to real life events : this is the final litmus test in Standard Method of Vedic Phalita Jyotisha used by hardly anyone now-a-days, although ordered in BPHS. Sum total of all five levels of vimshottari must be added to decide the possibility of an event.
There are two peculiarities in all Dashaa Onset Charts which must be remembered : Dashaa-kaaraka planets have special significance, and placement of a dashaa-kaaraka planet with respect to the upper level dashaa-kaaraka is also important.
Another peculiarity is common to all varga charts, birthcharts as well as dahsaa onset charts : lagna and the house signifying the special attribute of a varga have extra significance. For instance, D7 has special value for lagna (1H) and fifth house (5H).
Drik Siddhanta (physical astronomy) can be opted to test these things. In the present case, Drik Siddhanta gives tolerable explanation for death of late Indira Gandhi, but fails to explain the tremendous rajayoga during the same period of Saturn. One can check it through Kundalee or JHora softwares. We can accept only that birth-time which explains ALL events without any use of twisted logic to prove anything. Following sections of this essay prove that SSS (Shri Surya Siddhanta) explains ALL events admirably according to the standard rules of Phalita Jyotisha.
Third Stage of Rectificationof Birth Time : Use Relevant Shodasha Varga
Trinsaamsha varga or D-30 is for Arishta (diseases, accidents, death, etc). Although it is called 30th varga, it is actually sixth varga related to the topic of sixth house (disease) and therefore has 5 degrees for each division and should have six parts, but due to primacy of five planets related to five tattvas (read the article ShodashaVargaSecrets.pdf attached at the bottom of Home Page of jyotirvidya.wetpaint.com) one division has been distributed into two other divisions to make them of 7 and 8 degrees, remaining three divisions retaining the average size of 5 degrees.
Therefore, it is not a very high divisional , and after birth time rectification by means of D-1 in the field of death or disease, we must look to D-30.
As done with D-1 above, In Kundalee's main data form, enter the time of birth as 23:12:48.9647132, and in the right hand side boxes for 'Desired Time' in data form enter 11:35 am as the time of death which is mean of both extremes of possible times. After getting VIMSHOTTARI page for D-30, click Dashaarambha button, many pages will open up. In the 'Dashaa Timing' page, click 'MD Start' button. Detailed Saturn's MD Onset bhaavachalita chart of D-30 will open up.
Saturn's MD Onset bhaavachalita chart of D-30 is on left.
In D-30 it is Saturn's MD (mahaa-dashaa).
In birth-time D30, Saturn sits in 3H as svagrihi lord there, lord of 4H too, hence a benefic and increasing longevity. AD planet Rahu, which is also PrD planet, sits in its strong friend Jupiter's 2H while Jupiter is svagrihi in 5H, and Ketu also sits with Rahu in its moola-trikona, and Mars sits there in fast friend's house. Thus, MD, AD and PrD do not fortell death, while PD and SD planets are of mixed nature. But Dasha Onset Charts are clearly fatal as shown below. We will find innumerable instances of Dasha Onset Chart giving correct reading while birth chart taking a back seat. It is because birth chart is for entire life while Dasha Onset Charts are of primary importance for relevant Dashaas.
In MD Onset chart bhaavachalita, we find neecha Saturn in 6H (6th house) with Mercury and Venus. Mercury is 8L+11L (lord of 8th and 11 houses) while Venus is 7L + 12L, both in enemy's house owned by Mars which sits in 7H as lagnesha and 6L. These two malefic conjuncts make Saturn malefic and destroy the VRY (Vipareeta Rajayoga) of neecha Saturn in 6th. Moreover, Saturn is enmical to lagna, 2H, 5H and 6H,making Saturn bad in 6th and bad for lagna which are two most significant houses in D30.
In D-30 it is Rahu's AD (antar-dashaa). In AD Onset chart bhaavachalita, we find Rahu in 6th as 3L and in moolatrikona, hence malefic. D30 lord, i.e., lagnesha Jupiter sits in 12H. All these factors make Rahu AD malefic for life.
In D-30 it is Mercury's PD (pratyantar-dashaa). In PD Onset chart bhaavachalita, we find Mercury as 7L + 10L with double kendresha-dosha sitting in 9H lorded by strong Sun there which is enmical to Mercury.
SD (sookshma dashaa) is of Sun which sits debilitated (neecha) in 4H as Maarakesha (2L) in SD Onset chart. Hence malefic for life.
PrD (praana dashaa) is of Rahu which is exalted and sits as bhaavaheena in 6H. Neecha planet in 6th is VRY, but uchcha planet in 6th is bad. MD, AD and PrD lords are in 6th and are killers, which imply killing by enemy.
Thus, D-30 confirms the findings of D-1 and suggests that birth time is almost accurate. Now, with the help of PrD lord Rahu's longitude we can further rectify birth time. But time of death has slight uncertainty, we cannot be too sure of DPC (dashaa-pravesha-chakra) of higher divisionals till we examine events with better known timing. For instance, in PD onset above with merely 85 milli-second reduction in birthtime Mercury moves to 8H making it much more malefic.
D-10 : For Analysis of Death !
Normally D10 is not used for analyzing death, but if death is related to career and office, there must be some connection. With birth time as 23:12:48.9647132, we get a D-10 with Vimshottari sequence Sat - Rahu - Sat - Sat - Ketu. In birthchart's D10, Saturn was yoga giver and 9L + 10L but in 2H, Rahu was 10 L and in 12H, and Ketu in 6H as 7L. Relation of killers with 10H is significant. Besides, Lagna was infested with killers : 2L Mercury and 8L + 11L retro Jupiter. Hence, D10 Vimshottari indicates death. But Saturn's yoga giver nature also resulted in great wealth due to 9L + 10L sitting in 2H, and political power on account of being 10L : Saturn's MD started from 26 Oct 1970.
Her D10 had exalted Mars in 9H having SBC vedha on Sanjay while Rajiv had vedha from malefic Ketu in 6H and weak Sun. Hence, D10 ensured Sanjay's prominence in politics.
Now, check Dashaa Onset Charts of D-10 at the time of Indira Gandhi's death.
MD planet Saturn was neecha, retro and 3L + 4L sitting in 7H, Saturn itself a killer controlled by its lord malefic Mars (6L + 7L) in 11H. Neech 10L Sun in 12H provided political rajayoga after 26:10:1970 to her (sinse onset of MD). BPHS says Saturn becomes main killer if related with a killer : here Saturn has an enmical and very high aspect relation with 2L Jupiter.
In AD onset chart, exalted Rahu sat in 8H and was 8th to MD planet. In PD + SD chart, exalted Saturn sat in 8H with bitter enemy VRY Sun, PD planet Saturn was 6th from AD planet Rahu.
D-60 : Problems in its Dashaa-Pravesha-Chakra
Shashtyamsha Varga (D-60) requires very high degree of precision in birth time because in birth chart D60 its lagna changes for 2 minutes of change in birth time, but in Dashaa Onset Charts, this duration of 2 minutes gets reduced by many thousands of times. Therefore, birth time error must not be more than ten or twenty milli-seconds approximately for making correct D60 onset charts. In Kundalee's main data form, enter the time of birth as 23:12:48.9647132 , and in the right hand side boxes for 'Desired Time' in data form enter 11:35 am as the time of death which is mean of both extremes of possible times. After getting VIMSHOTTARI page for D-60, click Dashaarambha button, many pages will open up. In the 'Dashaa Timing' page, click 'MD Start' button. Detailed bhaavachalita chart will open up. Then, make same D60 dashaa onset charts with +4 and -4 seconds in birth time, you will find that lagna in D-60 dashaa onset chart changes by 6 rasis!! Hence, it is useless to make D60 onset chart until we rectify birth time with greater accuracy. Till then we will not use D-60 for rectification because death time has few hours of uncertainty and D-60 dashaa onset is highly sensitive to even one centi-second of change in birth time.
Next Stage of Rectification of Birth Time : Other Events with better Timing
Event-2 : Birth of First Son (Rajiv Gandhi)
Indira Gandhi's birth-time D-7 (Saptaamsha) chart on Left.
Late Rajiv Gandhi's birth date 20:08:1944 at Mumbai, birth time (6:34 Bombay Local Time with one hour for war correction) converted into IST was 8:11:40 am (which may have slight error). Enter it into input data form of Kundalee software and use 23:12:48.9647132 as the birth-time of Late Indira Gandhi to make D7 (saptaamsha) chart by putting '7' in Shadash3 form and clicking Shodashavarga button.
Late Indira Gandhi's D-7 chart has lagnesha and dhanesha (1L + 2L)Saturn in moola-trikona in 2nd house, with Rahu there as svagrihi and Jupiter as a malefic : in enemy's house as 3L + 12L and retrograde. Mars is also svagrihi in 11th. 7L Moon in 12th meant marriage of her sons not conducive to well being of them. 9L in 6H suggests "secular" bent of mind.
The strongest planet in her D7 is Saturn, whose MD runs from Sep 1983 onwards, when her elder son became prime minister with record votes, but met a pre-mature and violent death due to Saturn and Rahu in 2nd house. Saturn, Mars and Rahu are lords of 2nd and 11th houses in D7 of Indira Gandhi's birth chart, resulting in tremendous wealth of her son/sons. Although the birth chart D7 has three strong planets, it does not explain the tremendous POLITICAL rajayoga of Rajiv Gandhi, having 5L + 10L yogakaaraka Venus sitting in strong malefic enemy's house(of Mars). Birth charts fail if dashaa onset charts dictate otherwise, because the Rule of Dominance of Short-term (Sookshma) Chart over Long Range Chart operates at all levels in all systems of Vedic Astrology. For instance, MD planet cannot stop PrD planet from giving its fruits if both contradict each other.
Saturn's Mahaa-Dashaa Onset Chart of D7
The excellent rajayoga of Rajiv Gandhi is explained by Saturn-MD Onset chart of Indira Gandhi's D7. It has three exalted planets and one in mool-trikona which caused Rajiv Gandhi's rise to power during Saturn's MD in Indira Gandhi's D7. This chart has exalted Saturn in 7H if Indira Gandhi's birth time is 23:12:48.81485 ± 16.96 milli-seconds( 48.79789 to 48.83181 seconds for Saturn in 7H, out of 6H or 8H and as 10L+11L). If we go beyond this range of birth time of Indira Ji, there can be no rajayoga for Rajiv Gandhi because Saturn moves to a trika house, 6H or 8H or 10L moves to trika.
The birthtime deduced above gives very accurate phalita results for all events and of the above charts change when birthtime is changed from 48.96471 sec obtained rom uncertain death time to 48.8318a sec, hence the range of uncertainty in birthtime is very small, only 16.96 milli-sec.
With this birthtime which is more accurate, if we find out the timing of main fruit of Saturn's PrD in D1 for death, we get 11:47:31.3 AM as the time of death of Late Indira Gandhi. Surprisingly, D60's Dasha Pravesha Chakra of all five levels of Vimshottari prove killer for this birthtime and death time : MD planet Jupiter 2L in 7H, AD planet Ketu as bhaavaheena in 2H, PD + SD planet Saturn 3L + 4L exalted in 12H and combust in bitter enmical VRY Sun , and PrD planet Venus as 1L + 8L in 2H.
Exalted 11L Saturn in 7H in Dasha Onset chart means spouse was instrumental in tremendous wealth acquired by Rajiv Gandhi. Letter "S" and "R" has Vedha from exalted Saturn in SBC. Hence, during Indira Gandhi's D7 Saturn starting from 1 Sep 1983, her offsprings named with 'S' or 'R' rose to prominence. Saturn in 7th meant Sonia was instrumental in his income (11L0 and rise. 11L Rahu being exalted and having vedha on "O" and "K / Q" means Ottavio Quattrochi was also instrumental in Rajiv's income. But Rahu sat with bhaava-heena Moon which also had vedha on same letters. Hence, Rajiv Gandhi's political downfall was associated with Ottavio Quattrochi, political because Rahu and Moon have worst aspects on 10H of political power. Bhaavaheena Moon sitting in 3H harmed brother of Indira Gandhi's son / sons. In SBC of Saturn MD Onset Chart of Indira Gandhi's D7 chart, the letter with highest number of malefic vedhas is "P", which means Prabhakaran had ordered for Rajiv Gandhi's killing. "P" had vedha from Moon, Rahu, Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn : seven planets with killer traits : Moon being bhaavaheena, Rahu 11L, Mars neecha and 8L with Venus 2L and 7L killing her sons but moolatrikona Sun there making her sons shine in glory, Mercury in 6H and 3L + 4L + 6L (not in own sign) and retrograde, Jupiter in 8H and Saturn in 7th.
During Saturn's MD in above chart, Mercury's AD was from 2 Aug 1986 to 13 Mar 1989, when Bofors scandal broke out resulting in loss of Rajiv Gandhi's prestige and then of power. It was because in AD onset chart of Indira Gandhi's D7's Saturm MD, 11L Ketu sat in 10H, 10L Venus was neecha, and highest aspect on 10H was of Jupiter which was very strong being svagrihi and highly malefic by dint of being 3L + 12L in 3H and retrograde. In this chart again, Ottavio Quattrochi had "O" and "Q" vedha from highly malefic planets : Moon and Mars in trika houses and 11L Ketu having vedha on "Q" ; and 8L Sun and neecha Venus on "O". It is noteworthy that even after death of Indira Gandhi, her D7 continued to explain events in the life of her son.
Pada charts define the means of fruits one gets through main chart. 10th pada chart of D7 of Indira Gandhi shows rajayoga : 5L + 10L being Mars sitting with fast friend Sun as 2L, but these two malefics giving money and power in pada chart meant foul means were used to attain money and power 9read BPHS carefully to get the meaning of pada charts, some moderners are inventing new meanings of pada charts).
Jupiter MD Onset in Indira; Gandhi's D7 had 10L in 6th and not a single benefic. Hence, Jupiter's MD had no benefic yoga for her sons. But its Ketu AD onset chart had neecha Ketu in 8H, yogakaaraka Saturn as 4L + 5L, causing rise of one of her sons during Emergency, and next AD of Venbus since Oct 1975 had even more powerful combinations : VRY of neecha nodes in 6H and 12H, svagrihi Jupiter in 11H, exalted Mercury in 5H but combust in weak Sun whose vedah of Rajiv marred his prospects while VRY Ketu's vedha on Sanjay caused him to flourish.
Rajiv Gandhi's Marriage : Viewed from Indira Gandhi's D7
All five Vimshottari levels were of Jupiter at the time of Rajiv Gandhi's marriage held on 25 Feb 1968, hence only Jupiter's MD Onset Chart in Indira Gandhi's D7 needs to be viewed. It is a weak chart, which has four planets in trika houses (6 and 8), including 7L. MD dashaa-kaaraka Jupiter (5L + 8L, neutrally placed in lagna and retrograde) is under complete control of 59' lordship's aspect of Sun which is lagnesha and sits in 7H. 7L Saturn sits in 8th, having malefic influence on 7H but with no aspect and the malefic influence of Saturn is negated by the benefic relation of Mars in 8H which is enemy of Saturn and 4L + 9L, and both Mars and Saturn are controlled by lord-aspect of Jupiter too. Thus, Saturn is virtually ineffective for 7H and Sun is effective. In SBC, the letter "S" has highest number of vedha : from Sun which is conducive to marriage, and from Ketu and Venus which are the only planets sitting in fast friendly signs. Sun has vedha on "O" vowel too. Hence marriage with Sonia. For better details, we ought to analyze their respective charts. Knowledgeable astrologers can deduce more results out of India Gandhi's above charts.
Varshaphala Method : Indira Gandhi's Death Reviewed With Rectified Birth-time
With this birthtime which is more accurate, if we find out the timing of main fruit of Saturn's PrD in D1 for death, we get 11:47:31.3 AM as the time of death of Late Indira Gandhi. Surprisingly, D60's Dasha Pravesha Chakra of all five levels of Vimshottari prove killer for this birthtime and death time : MD planet Jupiter 2L in 7H, AD planet Ketu as bhaavaheena in 2H, PD + SD planet Saturn 3L + 4L exalted in 12H and combust in bitter enmical VRY Sun , and PrD planet Venus as 1L + 8L in 2H.
Let us test the accuracy of this rectified birth-time with a parallel method : Varsha Pravesha Chakras (VPC). Like Vimshottari &c, VPC also has five levels, three of which are explicitly mentioned in Sudarshan Chakra chapter of BPHS : (1) main VPC when Sun returns to the longitudes of birth-time Sun, (2) Maasa Pravesha Chakras by adding 30 degrees to VPC, (3) again dividing 30 by 12 and adding 2.5 degrees to Maasa Pravesha Chakra to get Pratyantara or Vidashaa chakra (the former is the term mentioned in BPHS), (4) again divide 2.5 degrees by 12 to get charts at the intervals of about 5 hours, and (5) then again divide it into 12 parts to get charts at intervals of nearly 25 minutes. Sixth level has not been tested as yet. This method works wonderfully. There is no use of testing Tajak Neelakanthi based on spurious sources, although the VPC of Tajak is based on Mean Sun of Surya Siddhaanta (which is wrong, True Sun should be used).
In present case, take Indira Gandhi's birthtime as 23:12:48.81485 seconds and enter 31:10:1984, 11:47:31 AM as desired time in Kundalee software and click Varshaphala button in Switchboard. Examine the D1's Vimshottari planets in VPC, you will find MD planet Saturn as 6L plus 7L which makes it killer, followed with AD planet Rahu as 7L conjunct with bitter enemy 12L Moon, PD planet Moon, SD planet Rahu and PrD planet Saturn : all dashaa-kaaraka planets killer.
Then, make the Maasa Praveshha Chakra by clicking that month's button whose onset date (21 Oct 1984 in this case) just preceded the event (death). MD planet Saturn as 2L plus 3L which makes it killer and it is conjunct with double kendresh Mercury 7L + 10L in bhaavachalita which is combust in neecha Sun , followed with AD planet Rahu as 3L sitting in 6H, PD planet Moon as 8L, SD planet Rahu and PrD planet Saturn : all dashaa-kaaraka planets killer.
Then, make the Pratyantara Praveshha Chakra by clicking the appropriate time printed in red in "VARSHA-PHALA VIDASHAAS" form automatically opened by clicking any Varsha or Maasa phala buttons mentioned above. In present case, one should click 84,10,28,23:28 and then 84,11,00,11:19 one by one, they are Vidashaa or third level Varsha-Pravesha Chart dashaa (i.e., VPC-3), annul being VPC-1 and monthly being VPC-2). 84,10,28,23:28 means "84" for 1984, next "10" for October, 23 for date, 23:28 for time, 00 date means last date of previous month (i.e., 00 Nov = 31 Oct). These VPC-3 charts are effective for nearly 2.5 days. In VPC-3 chart of 84,10,28,23:28 by clicking at this time we get MD planet Saturn as 7L plus 8L and is combust in neecha maarakesha Sun, followed with AD planet Rahu as 8L , PD planet Moon as lagnesha in 6H, SD planet Rahu and PrD planet Saturn : all dashaa-kaaraka planets killers.
But next Pratyantara chart of 84,11,00,11:19 is also malefic : MD planet Saturn 2L + 3L with 7L Mercury and 12L Ketu, AD planet Rahu as 3L, PD planet Moon as 8L in 2H. She was shot in previous Pratyantara but the last Sookshma level chart at 6:20 AM has Saturn and Moon with some benefic traits (Saturn combust in malefic Sun and Moon in Saturn's house with high aspect of Saturn make them malefic, Rahu in 8H, hence Vimshottari planets are malefic, hence shot, but Sarurn as yoga giver and Moon as 5L saved her in this VPC-3, she died in next VPC-3.) which suggest she must not die in this Pratyantara's Sookshma dashaa or VPC-4 whose chart is same as that of VPC-3 discussed above, hence her most probable time of death is after 11:19 AM when next Pratyantara of ~2.5 days began and death took place in first Sookshma of this Pratyantara which lasted for 5 hours. First Praana or VPC-5 in this Sookshma has same chart as of Sookshma, while second Praana starting at 11:44:14 AM has almost similar D1 bhaavachalita and it is difficult to decide which Praana is worse ; one can view the bhaavachalita chart of VPC-5 by clicking the time in black in "VARSHA-PHALA VIDASHAAS" form, after which a small black form with Praana or VPC-5 twelve timings in white print will open, clicking any one of those twelve white timings will open respective VPC-5 chart. Since D1 of both VOC-5 are equally malefic, click their "Shodash" button and check respective D-30 charts of VPC-5 level, second VPC-5 is more malefic (for Vimshottari planets of birthtime D1). Hence, death took place during 11:44:14 to 12:09:09 near the Noon, which conforms our earlier conclusion from timing of main fruit of Praana-dashaa at 11:47:31 AM. D60 of this VPC-5 is also malefic for these Vimshottari planets (Saturn, Rahu, Moon). Hence, 11:47:31 AM seems to be the most probable time of her death with 2 minutes of uncertainty due to 17 milliseconds on uncertainty in birthtime.
VPC technique is capable of enabling us to find out the exact time of approximate events, and if exact time of events is known it will help us in rectifying birthtime, as evinced by five levels of VPC illustrated above. VPC technique is more fruitful if used with Sudarshana Chakra, I have shown here it with lagna kundali only. I am using VPC techniques for many years (without any reference to Tajak Neelakanthi), but one extra point must be mentioned here. I have used D1's Vimshottari in D1 as well as in all VPC bhaavachalita charts, but it is only in very strong cases like death all charts may point to same conclusions. Mostly we find D1 Vimshottari planets conflicting with the astrological fruits of same Vimshottari planets in VPC charts : in such cases we have to find out whether D1 Vimshottari planets are stronger or VPC planets are stronger : for strength we should use the ranking of main strenth from 9 to 1 in Kundalee software, 9 for uchcha, 8 for moolatrikona, 7 for svagrihi, … 1 for neecha. Shadbala should be used only when main strength is same.
Event-3 : Second Son Born (Sanjay Gandhi)
Late Sanjay Gandhi was born on 14:12:1946 at 09:27 IST (may be slightly wrong). MD-AD-PD in Indira Gandhi's D7 were of svagrihi Mars, moola-trikona Shani and again Mars, much better than Rajiv Gandhi's chart. Hence, Rajiv could not eclipse his younger brother. Another noteworthy point is that the best MD onset was of Saturn in Indira Gandhi's D7, during which Sanjay Gandhi rose to prominence, follwed by Rajiv Gandhi later. Why ? Because dashaa-kaaraka Saturn in Moola-trikona had vedha on both "S" and "R", but also on anusvar, hence giving more weightage to Sanjay. Secondly, "R" had vedha by malefics neecha Mars and killer Venus.
Death of Sanjay Gandhi
He died few minutes before 8:25 am on 23 June 1980. In Indira Gandhi's D-1 chart, Vimshottari sequence was Sat : Moon :Sat : Sat : Sun.
With birth time as 23:12:48.815 seconds, Saturn was 7L + 8L, in bitter enemy's rasi in lagna, Moon lagnesha and enmically in 6th with 8L Rahu and 11L Venus, Sun 2L. Hence, all five levels of vimshottari were ruled by killers. Birth-chart succeeds in explaining the event here BECAUSE dashaa onset chart does not oppose the birth-chart. In dashaa onset charts, we have MD chart with Saturn in enemy's sign as 6L + 7L, AD chart with Moon enmically in 12H, PD and SD with Saturn as 7L + 8L in 3H, and PrD with Sun as 3L + 4L in enemy's sign in lagna. Hence, all five were killers.
Son's death must be analyzed through D-7. For the time of Sanjay Gandhi's death, D7 chart of his mother had Jup - Mars - Mars - Venus - Sat as Vimshottari planets. Dashaa onset charts had following results : MD onset had 5L + 8L retrograde Jupiter in lagna under full control of lagnesha Sun in 7H as a killer, and Sun was in house of Saturn which sat in 8H. AD + PD onset had Mars in 12H with 5L and others. Hence, yoga giver lagnesha in 10H could not prevent misfortune. SD was of Venus which was 4L + 9L and svagrihi, but lagnesha Saturn was 12L too and resided in 8H while 5L Mercury languished in 6H, and bhaavaheena Sun destroyed the prospects of 5H while bhaavaheena Rahu sat in 7H aspecting lagna. Hence, inspite of good dashaa kaaraka, both lagna and 5H were highly malefic. Moreover, four planets sat in trika houses and 2L +11 L Jupiter sat in 7H with bhaavaheena Rahu. Excepting the dashaa kaaraka, all planets were killers, hence they overwhelmed the benefic dashaa kaaraka. These combinations cannot be changed through rectificatioin of birthtime, because if we try to make the dahsaa kaaraka malefic, too much of rectification will be needed which will make all other charts wrong. PrD planet Saturn is 8L + 9L with highly malefic Mars as 6L + 11L, double kendresha Jupiter enmical to Saturn and Rahu which is normal but weak in comparison to these three planets. Lord of 3H harms lagna by sitting there as a malefic 3L. And 3H is infested with 2L killer Moon.
Political Career of Indira Gandhi
Birthtime D-1 : Political Career
Birthtime D1 chart is given in the first picture on this page above.
Whether we use Drik Siddhanta or SSS, all 12 houses of D1 are controlled by mutual house ownership EXCHANGE (Parivartana) yoga, due to exchange relationships between Sun:Mars, Moon:Saturn, Jupiter:Venus, Mercury:Ketu. This is the most important feature of D1. Next most important point is the fact that among all planets in D1, Mars is the most powerful and best benefic giving three boons :
Sun as lord of 2nd house has exchange relation with Mars in parama-mitra and abhisheka tārā which is lord of 5th and 10th, the latter being a rajayoga (kendresh plus trikonesha). Both Sun and Mars are fast friends of each other, hence this exchange relation is highly benefic for all those houses which are influenced by them : 2nd house of wealth, 10th house of political power, 4th house of home and vehicles, 5th house of progeny; and by friendly aspects of high magnitude 9th house of fortune. These are the most benefic and strong houses in her D1 chart. Mars has bhāvottama yoga in D1 and D10 which enhanced the rājayoga.
Other planets excepting Rāhu have exchange relations but all of them are in enemy's house or in bitter enemy's houses, excluding Mercury which is in friendly house but combust in an enmical and strong Sun. Mercury as lord of 3rd and 12th is malefic and killer, it sits in nidhana taaraa too. Therefore, while Mars and Sun cause rājayoga for her children, Mercury killed them prematurely. Saturn in nidhana taaraa caused her own death. Standard rules of Vedic jyotisha can be applied by the readers to illustrate more features of her D1 chart.
Birthtime D-1 versus its Saturn Dashā Pravesha Chakra
Saturn Dashā Pravesha Chakra of Birthtime D1 chart is given in the second picture on this page above.
During the main part of Indira Gandhi's tenure as prime minister, D1's MD planet was Saturn 7L + 8L seated bitter enmically in lagna and in exchange relation with lagnesha Moon in 6H of bhaavachalita : no rajayoga resembling with her supremacy in Indian politics during Saturn's MD.
But same chart's MD Dashaa Onset Chart of D-1 had 6L + 7L Saturn sitting with exalted 10L Venus in 9H lorded by svagrihi Mars as 4L + 5L in 4H : three very strong rajayogas at once! Thus, Dashaa Onset Chart was hiding the rajayoga which birth chart did not reveal.
Birthtime D-10 : Political Career
Birthtime D-10 Chart is shown in the picture on Left. It explains Indira Gandhi's political career in which we must take help from DPC charts of birthtime D1 too. Hitherto only D-1 and occassionally D-10 have been used for studying political career of politicians. Here, a new tool is being used in detail which throws far more and better light on events : Dashaa Onset Charts of D-10.
Saturn's Vimshottari Dashā Pravesha Chakra of Birthtime-D10
Case Study of Higher Divisional : Natal D24
So far, we have studied only lower divisionals like D1, D30, D7, and D10 (D30 is actually not based on 30th part of rasi, but on 6th part at most). We started from lower divisionals because DPC (Dashā Pravesha Chakra) of higher divisionals is far more difficult to make than the lower divisionals due to birth time inaccuracies. D24 is a highr divisional and we can test it to find whether the rectified birth time allows us to make a correct D24 conforming to all major events.
Natal D24 Chart (Siddhāmsha or Chaturvimshāmsha Chart) :
Dasha Onset Charts of D-24
Indira Gandhi's D24 presents interesting facts about not only her studies but also about events affecting her studies, such as her mother's death and her non-orthodox marriage.

How to View Grandchildren's detailed Fortune's : DPC of D-7
A Horoscope continues to function even after death of the native : upon children and grandchildren. Some glimpses have been shown above in the case of Rajiv Gandhi's political fortunes. Now, let us examine the fortunes of next generation heir of Indira Gandhi : Rahul Gandhi (Varun Gandhi could not become the political heir, the reasons need scrutiny). The tool helping in these untrodden fields is D-7 and its DPCs.
There is some uncertainty concerning birthtime of Rahul Gandhi, ranging from 17th to 19th Jun, 1970. Most of the astrologers favour 19-Jun-1970, either morning or night. Let us examine the DPC onset charts of Late Indira Gandhi's DPC. Images are not uploaded here due to bandwidth limitations of the server, readers should view the charts through Kundalee Software.
Examining Birthtime of Rahul Gandhi
In Kundalee Software's initial Input Form, enter 19-Jun-1970 , 5:50 AM as Desired Time (in right hand side top) and make D-7's DPC (by SHOW > MAIN > Shodashvarga > Vimshottari > Dashaarambha > MD/AD/PD/SD/PrD ).
MD (Mahaa-dashaa) Chart of DPC of D7
DPC (Dashaarambha) MD chart has 5L Venus as 2L + 9L, sitting in 5H but not in own sign ; it is in fast friend's sign. In this chart, Venus and Ketu are only planets in fast friend's sign, but Ketu is 3L, hence Venus is most benefic planet, all other planets are in weaker signs or in dushta places (5 planets in 6-8-12H ; Mars as 3L+8L in 7H, Moon debilitated/neecha and 11L in 4H, while Ketu 3L in 2H). In birthchart too, Venus is good, as 5L + 10L, but not the best planet. DPC chart is more powerful than birthchart if Dashaa-kaaraka planet is equally strong in both. In this case, DPV is stronger.
Lagna of D7 shows son, and 5H of D7 shows grandson. Here, we are examining 5H of D7's DPC, hence grandchildren.
SBC of this MD chart has "R" letter vedha of Venus (dashaa-kaaraka planet), Moon, Jupiter and Ketu. The only other letter with equally strong vedha is "P" : vedha of Venus, Jupiter and Ketu. Hence, during Venus MD in D7 of Indira Ji, grandchildren with names starting from "R" and "P" are indicated from SBC (Sarvatobhadra Chakra". Letter "V" of Varun Gandhi has vedha of Moon only, which is weak. Hence, instead of Varun Gandhi, Rahul and partially Priyanka should carry the legacy of Indira Ji forward.
AD and PD (Antar nad Pratyantara dashaas) Chart of DPC of D7
In AD dashaa onset chart (DPC), we find svagrihi yogakaaraka Mars as 4L+5L+12L in 5H (bhaavachalita sometimes has mid-points of two adjacent bhaavas having same raashi). Hence, 5H of grandchildren in d&'s DPC is very strong and benefic.
PD is of same planet, hence same chart.
SD (Sookshma dashaa) Chart of DPC of D7
5L Saturn has VRY (vipareeta raja-yoga) in 8H where it is debilitated (neecha). Hence, 5H is strong and benefic.
PrD (Praana dashaa) Chart of DPC of D7
It has even better 5H : its lord Saturn is neecha in 8H, having VRY, which is further strengthened because Saturn is 4L and 5L. Rahu sits in its own raashi in 5H as fast friend of Saturn, which further strengthens 5H.
Four out of five dahsaa-kaaraka planets are male (Jup-Sat-Sat-Moon-Ketu, strongest planets for 5H are more significant for grandchild than dhashaakaaraka planet, and there too 4 out of 5 planets are male as shown above), hence male grandchild should be expected.
Birthtime of Rahul Gandhi
Thus, 5:50 AM on 19:06:1970 augurs well for possible birthtime of Rahul Gandhi. PrD is most significant in timing of events, and in present case PRD has strongest dashaa-kaaraka too. Therefore, PrD planet Saturn ought to determine birthtime. Lagna of PrD DPC changes to make a weak chart, hence Rahul Gandhi's birthtime must be before 5:55 AM on 19 Jun 1970, and after 17 Jun 1970, 13:47:17 IST.
For DPC of PrD, D1 has been analyzed above, while D7 of same moment shows Vargottama situation : 11th sign in 5H in both D1 and D7 of DPC of PrD.

Sudarshana Chakra : Primary Method of Bhrigu Samhitā and Nādi Granthas
Sudarshana Chakra (SC) is the primary basis of all Nādi and Samhitā texts like Bhrigu Samhitā or Deva Keralam or other Nādi granthas, as well as of varsha-phala technique, but this fact is not known and some moderners even refute this value of Sudarshana Chakra. In the section-4 about ‘Varshaphala Technique’ , we had shown five levels of Varshaphala whose timing has been taken from the method mentioned in Sudarshana Chakra chapter of BPHS. But there is much extra material to be used in Sudarshana Chakra which we will study here step by step. First of all, let us deal with D1 and its Sudarshana Chakra Dashās only, then we will go into other details of Sudarshana Chakra, including those which are not mentioned in classics due to space.
First Step : D1 and its SC Dashās
As BPHS mentions, each Bhāva in the chart has one year of its dashā, and therefore each Bhāva-dashā repeats after every 12 years. First, let us prepare the table for whole life. For birthdate on 19 Nov, 1917, let us denote first year as ‘17’ and assign it to first house's dashā, year ‘18’ (1918 starting from solar birthdate) for second bhāva's dashā, and so on, in the following table.
|Dashā Table of 12 Houses : Indirā Gāndhi|
Year beginning on solar birthdate in Nov 1983 proved to be her last year, succeeding years are shown in green in the above table. Her last year was the year of 7th Bhāva's dashā according to Sudarshana Chakra system. It will be the year of 7th house in any divisioinal chart (a novel fact, not mentioned in anywhere till now). Let us first analyze D1's 7th house (= 7H) first of all.
Event-1 : Examination of Death
The table above shows six years of 7th house's Sudarshana Chakra annual dashā : 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971 and 1983. Why she did not die in other years and why 1983 (1983 means year starting from Nov 1983) killed her? Let us start with Longevity formula mentioned in BPHS and Jaimini Sutra, used in the initial portion of this essay above under title “Longevity : Amshāyu-Pindāyu-Nisargāyu”, which suggested that Saturn's MD and Rāhu's AD is most befitting for death. If DPC (Dashā Pravesha Chakra) is also checked, Saturn as 6L + 7L in Saturn's DPC-MD is worse than Rahu as 6L in 4H in Rahu's DPC-MD.
Now, check the years from 1917 to 1983-84 to find out the worst year for longevity. Saturn influences lagna, 7H and 8H. But 8H enjoys some VRY due to 8L Rahu in 6H, while Lagna has two benefits : it is naturally more benefic than 7H or 8H, and Lagna is influenced by Rahu due to exchange relation of Saturn:Moon and Moon's conjunction with Rahu. However, the line is thin and we may conclude that in D1, i-7-8 houses can be considered to be equally malefic. Hence, we should analyze Dasha-varga to decide this issue, as we did in the case of Amshāyu-Pindāyu-Nisargāyu. Among ten divisionals of Dasha-varga, 7H is malefic in all ten vargas, while lagna and 8H are malefic only in a few. Hence, 7H proves to be the worst off. Here is the reasoning :
D2 : 7L Venus sits as neecha in 11H and is 12L too, while 8L Merc sits in 9H with exalted Jupiter and 1L Mars is exalted as 9L in 3H. Hence, 7H is the only malefic among these three houses.
D9 : Saturn is lord of both 7H and 8H and sits in 2H, hence both houses 7 and 8H are malefics, while Moon sits in 2H and is therefore a killer but less than Saturn because 1L Moon is better than 7+8L.
One can use similar reasoning to check all ten dasha-vargas, 7H has no competition from 1H or 8H. Full analysis is long, and it is sure shot to decide such matters.
In the table of years from 1917-8 to 1983-4 above, there are six years which have SC dashās of 7H. Among those, two were during Saturn's MD : 1971 and 1983, and 1947 was in Rahu's MD. Other three years were in MD's of non-killers or weak killers. Among these three years, Saturn wins as killing MD lord by dint of Amshāyu-Pindāyu-Nisargāyu rule. During Saturn's AD is Saturn's AD, Saturn will be the only planet to give its malefic effect, while during Rahu's AD of Saturn's MD Rahu will add its malefic effect to Saturn's. Hence, Saturn's MD and Rahu's AD during 7H SC Dashaa proves to be the killing year. That year is solar Varsha-pravesha of Nov 1983 to Nov 1984. After this long analysis, the conclusion will be put in one sentence : “this native will die in 67th year of life”. This is the language of ancient Samhitās like Bhrigu-Samhitā and Nādi granthas. These ancient texts do not explain the method, because the whole process is very long as shown here in summary. Only a rishi could write voluminous Samhitā / Nādi granthas explaining thousands of charts. There are spurious texts also, created mostly during 19th and some in 20th century.
Māsa-Phala and Pratyantara Phala : New Dimension in Method of Bhrigu Samhitā and Nādi Granthas
In the analysis above, we found 7H SC Dashā running in 1983-84 year, i.e., 67th year of this native. According to BPHS, now assume 7H as first month of 67th year of this native and find out the monbth of death : 31:10:1984 will fall in 12th month. 12th house from 7H is 6H. Hence, death took place during monthly dashā of 6H when annual dashā of 7H was running. In 6H, three enmical planets are sitting which mar the prospects of this house : Moon, Venus and Rahu. Moon has mujtual exchange relation with Saturn, the arch killer. Thus, relation with Saturn and three enmical planets make 6H a bad house. 8H is weaker because it contains no planet. 12H also contains only Ketu. Therefore, among all Trika / Dushta houses, 6H is strongest and malefic.
Māsa-pravesh took place on 21 Oct 1984 at 11:25:44 am (cf. Varshaphala button in Switchboard of Kundalee software). 4th Pratyantara ended at 11:19 am on 31 Oct 1984. 30 bullets pierced her body at slightly after 9 am and she was declared dead after 2 pm. Hence, both 4th and 5th Pratyantara were malefic. She was shot in last Sookshma of 4th Pratyantara, i.e., 8H Sookshma of 9H Pratyantara beginning at 6:20 am on 31 Oct, and died in first Sookshma of 5th Pratyantara starting at 11:19 am when 10H SC dashā was running, lorded by Mars sitting in 2H of D1. But Mars was also 5L + 10L, ensuring Rājayoga for her as well as for her son at that moment.
No Samhitā or Nādi Grantha uses Māsa or Pratyanata dashā levels due to lack of space, but I have checked this technique over many charts and have found it to work wonderfully provided it is used carefully as explained above.
Transits cannot decide which house dasā out of many will work, because many transits of same planet take place during one's lifetime. Vimshottari is a better guide. But other relevant dashās and transits may help in pin-pointing the event if we can afford the extra time needed for such efforts.
Divisionals are very important in this techniques, because we need divisionals to decide which house is good or bad. Dasha-varga weighs 85% among shodasha-vargas, hence we can neglect remaining 6 vargas for time-saving, but in certain cases D27, D40, D45, etc may be more impiortant, depending on the need. E.g., in case of a conflict D27 will be important. Fot subjects related to mother ,e.g. heritage from mother, D40 will be important.
Example from a Nādi Grantha
Samhitā and Nādi Granthas use Surya-Siddhānta, but modern astrologers tend to use physical astronomy which is incompatible with this method.
The article «Sukra Nadi Grantha -1» , translated by Shri N. Sundara Rajan, appears in Saptarishi Astrology online magazine. It tells us that Sukra Nadi and the famous Dhruva Nadi were composed by Satyacharya (Vikramaditya's navaratna according to legend). At the beginning of this article we find an example chart of “Kubheramsam Thula Lagnam”, about which SA Publisher writes “It is not clear as to which Panchanga (ephemeris) the Rishi must be using and which method of calculation to arrive at the position of planets. An attempt made shows 31st Jan 1829, 01:30 as the approximate time to match Rasi Chart but Navamsa position of Jup, Ketu does not match nor does nakshatra pada of Jyeshta.” But Surya-Siddhānta mode of Kundali Software gives this chart for Feb 1, 1829 AD (12n00, 79e00) 00:55:02 to 01:06:18 am IST (this navāmsha had a duration of 11min:16sec) with exactly same D1 and D9 with even the fastest planet Moon in correct sign, but Saturn and Mercury in one extra sign in D9. The reason is simple : Kundalee Software uses beeja-samskāra (corrections) automatically updated for given date while traditional panchāngas use outdated tables, and beeja corrections of Mercury and Saturn are highest in magnitude and therefore show maximum divergence with the passage of time. Those who understand these nuances of panchānga making will see that this example chart in Sukra Nādi Grantha was created from some traditional panchānga of Tamil Nādu made from Vākya method based on outdated table of Surya Siddhānta. Rishis do not make such errors (of using outdated tables). Secondly, we have to use currently popular method of D9 to match this D9 example of Sukra Nādi, while reversal of sequence in even signs which is default in Kundalee Software gives far better matching with actual events. Thirdly Rāsi Chart and not Bhāvachalita has been used in this Sukra Nādi example, while Jātaka-prakarana of Bhrigu-Samhitā gives fruits of rāshis in each house separately which makes sence only with Bhāvachalita and not with Rāsi chart (with Rāsi chart, referring lagna's rāsi is enough because all other houses have signs anchored to lagna's rāsi, while in bhāvachalita each bhāva has unequal width and therefore we must compute its mid-point separately). These three evidences suggest that such examples were inserted into Nādi and Samhitā granthas during 19th century for updating them, and while doing so astrologers used currently prevalent crude variants of Suryasiddhāntic panchāngas and crude astrological practices. Use of Drik Siddhānta (physical astronomy) by Saptarishi Astrology magazine resulted in birthdate moving back by one day and large errors in D9 without any explanation. Using Surya Siddhānta gives small errors in Mercury and Saturn which are self explanatory because beeja corrections have maximum value only for these two planets, over 6 degrees for Mercury and over 4.6 degrees for Saturn actually, but less in outdated panchāngas. In published version of Bhrigu Samhitā, we find similar interpolations by 19th century astrologers, they inserted examples from currently used panchāngas.
Second Step : Chandra and Surya Kundalis in SC
BPHS states that if Sun and Moon are not in lagna then Chandra and Surya Kundalis should be combined with Lagna-Kundali (D1) and cumulative effect should be judged. In the present case, we have already analyzed D1, let us see Chandra and Surya Kundalis.
Rotate D1 so that Sun falls in 1H (in Kundalee software, in Graha-spashta page type “4” in the text box left of “Zoom-In” button to change 4H with Sun into Lagna). Jup in 8H is 3L and Ven in 3H is 8L, both have exchange relation. Jup is 6H too, hence has VRY by dint of sitting in 8H. Its exchange relation with 1L Venus helps VRY Jup influencing lagna too. Hence, 1H and 8H have some benefic traits, while 7H has its lord Mars as pure killer as 2L+7L and is strong in 11H.
Similarly, rotate D1 to make Chandra Kundali by typing “6” in the text box left of “Zoom-In” button on Graha-spashta page. 12L Ketu sits in 7H and 7L Merc sits in 12H. But lagna and 8H are also malefic : 2+3L Sat in 8H ; and 6+11L Ven and 8L Moon with 3L Rahu in lagna. Hence, Chandra Kundali makes 1H, 7H and 8H malefic, but Sun Kundali makes 7H more malefic than others. Therefore, SC increases the malefic weightage of 7H.
Houses As Varsha-Lagna : What Does It Mean ?
Houses as Varsha-lagna does not mean we should change lagna arbitrarily. It means the total effect of a house should be judged by means of all 12 houses with respect to this house as lagna : this principle is used not only in SC but everywhere. For instance, in Vimshottari system placement of AD planet should be evaluated with respect to MD planet ; e.g., if AD planet is in 6th or 8th house from MD planet, effects will be malefic. It means MD planet is assumed to be in lagna for ascertaining the overall effect of a given house, but it does not mean actual lagna is changed.
Higher Divisionals in Sudarshana Chakra : Further Dimension in Method of Bhrigu Samhitā and Nādi Granthas
Dhruva Nādi mentions use of Navaamsha varga's annual dashaas, which proves higher divisionals also had their annual dashaas. Use of Māsa-phala and smaller divisions like Pratyantara Phala (2.5 days, Sookshma (5 hours) and Praana (25 minutes) is impossible in texts like Bhrigu Samhitā and Nādi Granthas due to volume. Same problem is faced with Shodash Vargas. With only D1 and Varshaphala, Bhrigu Samhitā and Nādi Granthas grow to immense proportions, hence writing and copying similar texts with five levels of SC-Varshaphala and Shodasha Vargas is impossible. But for individual cases, we can use the detailed method which is marvellous and path-breaking. Some examples are provided here. D1 and D10 charts of Late Indirā Gāndhi are presented in preceding sections. Here, examination of D10 chart's SC (Sudarshana Chakra) dashā is illustrated.
She became prime minister of a large country first time on 24th Jan 1966. Then, SC annual dashā was of lagna. It should be remembered that SC dashā is same in all divisionals at any given time.
In D10, lagnesh Jupiter was yoga giver as lord of lagna and 10H, sitting with exalted (uchcha) Moon in 3H, and adhi-mitra-grihi (sitting in fast friend's rāshi) Sun as 6L in lagna. It was a fine combination for lagna of D10 which indicated great achievement in carrier.
From 18th Jan 1966, she had 3H as SC māsa phala, exalted Moon in 3H was superb.
From 23 Jan 1966, 1:54 AM, she had 5H SC dashā. 5L Moon was exalted, having exchange relation with Venus in 5H, giving full control of Moon on 5H. Venus as 3L and 8L in 5H weakened her Parākrama.
During 12:12 PM noon to 17:06 PM, she had lagna dashā again, fine as already explained. Thus, we find SC dashās working admirably in D10 for all finer levels of SC dashā. It is a novel use of SC dashā, which can be used correctly only with SSS (Shri Surya Siddhānta).
SC annual dashā repeats every 12 years. Hence, we need to take help from most powerful relevant dashā, such as Vimshottari to find the actual year of event. During Moon's MD, she was a minor but played important role as leader of Vānar Senā. D10 cannot give better job to a child. Next was Rāhu's MDE in D10, which was 12L with debilitated Saturn, hence not yoga giver. 12 years before 24 Jan 1966 was also Rahu's MD again. Hence, 1966 was the first chance for her SC lagna dashā to take effect in unison with Vimshottari. Finer levels of SC dashā do not pose this problem, they have only one ocurrence of one house during one period of upper level dashā.
DPC (Dashā Pravesha Chakra) of D10 with SC gives more clear-cut results, but it is difficult to make DPC as already demonstrated above.
D27 relates to Strength, hence can be used in political affairs. In this case, 24 Jan 1966 had annual dashā of lagna with lagnesha Saturn exalted in 9H of D27, monthly SC dashā of 3H had exalted Sun in 3H, pratyantara 5H had 5L Mercury combust in exalted Sun in 3H, and pratyantara was again of lagna. Hence, D27 worked well with SC dashā.
For very strong events, birth charts suffice as shown above, otherwise we need to cast DPC for Vimshottari &c.
Now, we should examine one important problem with SC Dashā, never attended to by anyone. SC annual dashā of a given house recurs after 12 years, but Indirā Gandhi ruled continuously since 1966 for 11 years. Does it mean all her 11 years had good annual SC dashās?? If so, why she did not rule for most of the remaining years of her life? In D10, 1H (lagna), 3H and 5H are good as already shown. Let us examine some other important years of her political life through D10's SC annual dashā.
After 1966, 1967 was the year of 2H with exalted lord Mars in 11H, 1968 with 3H dashā and exalted Moon in 3H.
In 1969, she won the great challenge to her supremacy by splitting the Congress party and winning the majority to her side, including 24 MPs of CPI. It was the year of 4H in SC dashā, with no planet in 4H and Mercury as 4L in 9H having high mutual aspect relation with exalted 5L Moon in 3H.
1970 dashā of 5H was was lorded by exalted Moon.
1971 was a glorious year in her life when 6H dashā was running, with no planet in 6H and 6L Sun in lagna as a fast friend of yoga giver 1L + 10L Jupiter sitting with exalted Moon in 3H of valour.
1972 was the year of Mercury's 7H, with fate similar like 4H of Mercury (1969). 1973 was the year of Venus, having exchange relation with exalted Moon. 1974 was the year of 9H, with lord Mars exalted in 11H and Mercury sitting in 9H with high aspect relation with exalted Moon. 1975 was the year of 10H lorded by yoga giver Jupiter sitting with exalted Moon. 1976 was the year of Mars with exalted Mars in 11H. But 1977 was the year of 12H with its lord Saturn neecha (debilitated) in 2H, conjunct with 12L Rāhu.
1978 was the year of lagna, but unlike in 1966 when lagna's dashā was backed with yoga giver Jupiter's D10 Vimshottari MD, 1978 Vimshottari was of neecha Saturn. 1979 was of 2H, lorded by exalted Mars, but debilitated Saturn was now more potent due to its Vimshottari MD having best aspect on AD planet Venus.
However, 1980 was the year of exalted Moon, which overruled the negative influence of birthtime D10's Vimshottari Saturn which was already weakened due to DPC (Dashā Pravesha Chakra) Saturn as yoga giver (4L + 5L) and controlled by svagrihi Venus. Birthtime D10 Saturn was also not wholly bad as it had exchange relation with exalted Mars : hence neecha-bhanga of Saturn, but it destroyed the neecha status only and did not make Saturn strong and benefic enough to give her the highest political power of a large nation. Thus, we find birthtime chart not able to explain events satisfactorily. DPC and SC explain things better (and so does VPC).
In the example of D10's SC, only the lagna chart has been shown above under SC, but it is easy to add Moon's and Sun's charts. For instance, in the annual chart of Jan 1966 Sun sits in lagna while exalted Moon makes lagna of Chandra Kundali good. Thus, SC further reinforces the results of SC.
So many examples as given above are enough to show that SC dashā is a powerfu tool for forecasting if used carefully with Vimshottari, divisional charts and VPC, and we can fine tune events with precision of minutes of time.
But VPC (Varsha Pravesha Chakra) cannot always explain everything on its own. For instance, take the case of 24 Jan 1966 when she became Prime Ministyer for the first time. 10H had 8L Moon, but as a fast friend, 10L Mercury was in 12H with enemy svagrihi Ketu and 9L Sun. But MD planet in D1 as well as in D10 was jupiter which was yoga giver in VPC as 1L + 4L but was weak by dint of being in enemy's sign and had enmical 90% aspect on 10H. The only saving grace was 67% fast friendly aspect of moola trikona Saturn on 10H. In māsa phala VPC chart, this benefic influence of Saturn increased to 83% aspect on 10H and exalted Mars also became conjunct with Saturn as a friend. Thus, VPC is a helpful tool if used as a part of chief instruments : DPC and SC which are the two most important instruments of Vedic Jyotisha, none of which is used by overwhelming majority of astrologers. If exact birthtime is obtained with rectification, then use DPC, otherwise use SC with help from AV.
Special benefit of Sudarshan Chakra
There are cases when DPC is almost impossible to make due to uncertainty in birthtime being too great to be rectified through the method outlined at the beginning of this article, and birthchart is useless for Vimshottari and similar dashā systems due to great difference in predictive results of DPC and birthchart. Thus, neither DPC can be made, nor birthchart can be used with Vimshottari &c. The problem is componded if VPC also fails to explain events under such cases (because we do not know which planets of Vimshottari are important in VPC). Then, only two avenues are left : Transits (AV or Ashtakavarga &c) and Sudarshana Chakra, both being explained in the second part of BPHS as instances of simplified tools for Kaliyugi fools (who cannot rectify birthtime properly). Now-a-days, adhāna and sootikā room records are not kept, hence traditional methods of birthtime rectification cannot be used, and the modern method explained at the beginning of this article can be used only if the error is small. If birthtime is not too wrong by many hours, Sudarshan Chakra can be used for significant events for D1, while higher divisionals require greater accuracy in birthtime but even D24 requires birthtime accuracy of 5 minutes.
If DPC can be made, it is the best tool of astrology, otherwise use SC with help from AV.
Can Father's Horoscope be Recreated from Offspring's Horoscope ?
Let us check Jawaharlal Nehru's birth from the charts of his daughter.
Type 14:11:1889 as Desired date and 23:21 as Desired Time in right hand side top text boxes of Data Input Form, and get DAC (Dasha Arambha Chakras) of D-1 and D-12 in Indira Gandhi's horoscope.
In Indira Ji's D-1 at the time of Jawaharlal Nehru's birth, you will find Vimshottari sequence as Ketu, Moon, Merc, Ketu, Saturn.
In DAC's MD chart, Mars is yoga-giver as 5L + 10L, but neecha in Cancer sign. But its lord Moon sits in Cancer with Mars in lagna. Hence, 10H is in complete control of a benefic and strong Moon.
In AD chart, Saturn is yoga giver as 9L + 10L in 4H having high aspect on 10H.
In SD chart, Mars is yoga-giver as 5L + 10L, getting further strength by sitting in 3H, with 100% aspect on 10H.
In PrD chart, Jupiter is 7L + 10L, sitting in 7H in its own sign with another strong graha : Ketu in moolatrikona.
* ** ** * ***
Now' let us check the same with Indira Ji's D-12's DAC charts.
In Indira Ji's D-12 at the time of Jawaharlal Nehru's birth, you will find Vimshottari sequence as Rahu, Venus, Sat, Jup, Sat.
DAC's MD chart (Rahu's MD) has 10L Moon in 7H and lagnesh Venus in 10H in fast friendly sign, Venus having ecgange relation with Mercury, the latter sitting in fast friendly sign in 9H in conjunction with Mars. And 10L Moon sits in sign of Mars. Hence these planets are related closely to each other and benefics, esp for 10H of father in D-12. Lagna of D-12 represents parents, which is Venus.
DAC's AD chart has Mars 5L + 10 L neecha in 12H : VRY. Sun sits in moolatrikona in lagna.
PD has 7L + 10L Jupiter in its own sign Sagittarius in 7H. 9L Rahu sits in Moolatrikona in lagna.
SD chart has 10L Moon in lagna in Tula while its lord Venus also sits there in Tula, thus controlling lagna and 10H as a strong benefic.
PrD chart has 10L + 3L Venus in Tula in 3H.
Thus, in Indira Gandhi's D-12 chart, Vimshottari can be back projected to find out the birth time of father. This method has been tested in other charts which have correctly rectified birthtime for DAC (Dasha Arambha Chakra). But all such cases I have checked so far belong to fathers or brothers having great yogas, which help in this method. It may help in recreating lost or absent horoscopes of family members having uncertain birthtime if one member of the family has highly accurate birthtime appropriate for DAC. Indira Ji's rectified birthtime is highly precise, but inappropriate for D-60's DAC. I have rectified my own birthtime with accuracy of a millisecond and all events get fully explained with all divisional DACs including D-60's DAC.
