When we write an article we must think in the readers and their level of knowledge. But most important we should be able to summarize the important message we want to pass, and is hard to see the things from the perspective of others What I have seen as the worst in Jyotish articles is the excess of information, too much description of the positions of the planets and their relationships . This often hides someone who has no true knowledge of astrology. If you describe all planetary relationships and does not indicate what is actually important to a particular event... What is the knowledge that you are transmitting ? I have seen comments depreciating authors like B.V. Raman who transmitted their knowledge in the style of the classics of Jyotish . My view is that they are unable to understand when a great astrologer is capable to separate a factor so we can balance it with the other factors to male our interpretations . It is very difficult to identify and isolate these factors on a chart and establish a principle . That was the ability of the Rishis and what I have seem in the nowadays writings is an exhaustive and too verbose description of planetary relationships, who most often do not bring anything original and are even unable to clarify precisely what is already established as the astrological knowledge.

Dear Mr. Sunil ,
I happen to read the articles on Pada Navamsha Dasha by Late Shri Yelluripati Krishna Rao ji and also by Iranganti
Rangacharya ji . There were very interesting and opened a new dimension of learning for us. I shared those with my friends and also with my teacher Shri Naval Singh.
I would request you to release some more articles by Late Yelluripati Krishan Rao ji specially on Jaimini dashas.

Buddh and riN
Bhatt Narayana of Chamatkar Chintamani says: how can one repay his riN when he has not Mercury in 11th house at birth? In other words, Mercury in 11th (i.e. 6th from 6th) house enables one to discharge his debts (both monetary and moral debts).
There are three kinds of riN (ऋण ṛṇa) or fundamental obligations to be fulfilled.
1) Deva riN (Indebtedness or obligations towards God and all his blessings. This can be repaid through charitable work, rituals, sacrifices etc.).
1) Rishi riN (Indebtedness or obligations towards sages, mentor etc. This can be ward off through acquiring and spreading knowledge).
3) Pitr riN (Indebtedness or obligations towards parents. This can be fulfilled by taking care of parents, offering their final rites, and procreating children to continue lineage).
Some philosophical texts maintain four types of debt (riN).
1) Pitra riN (indebtedness or obligations towards father and mother)
2) Brahma riN(indebtedness or obligations towards God almighty)
3) Deva riN (indebtedness or obligations towards deities)
4) Risi/Guru riN (indebtedness or obligations towards sage, mentor, teacher)
Even some later Indian canons added two more debts: Nri or Manushya riN and Bhuta riN.
Come to the point. Mercury in 11th house renders one to payback (or at least try to payback) his/her debts. Note the house lord, associated with Mercury; or lord of 11th house where Mercury resided (whether it is krura/somya, sattvik/rajjasic/tamasik, etc). This indicates the “type of riN to be repaid” and the “way or mean” how native repays obligations.

S.C.Purandare commented on Predictive Method: Predicting with Grahas as Karakas - http://shop.saptarishisastrology.com/:
Excellent book. A different thing must for every vedic astrology students and practising astrologers.
Role of Karakas as producers of different things,importance of their Ishta and Kashta and their placements are lucidly and effectively presented. Initial introduction to Grahas is rarely found in standard texts. The author should come out with many such books on vedic astrology especially on its predictive aspects.

With this book begins a series of "new insights" (Parts VI,VII VIII) in the potential as well as rhe accuracy with which one can predict with great confidence using K.P., and the latest publocations on Twin Births in two volumes is real eye-opener and convincingly explains why twins born even 15 minutes apart or even 1 to 2 minutes apart differ in vatious aspects of life,for example why one becomes an Engineer and the other a Doctor,even one short the other tall and so on...!

"Laura's writing style is very clear and organized making the material
easy to learn and her book easy to use as a reference. The strengths
and weaknesses of the planets is simply explained and the list of what
each planet produces in each Varga, and the use of each Varga, is
something I now use with each chart I delineate.
The Dasa information is really interesting. I had no idea there were
so many different kinds of dasas and that some of the dasas apply only
to people who meet specific criteria in their birth charts. A great

is teaching in this book, and was so interesting, that I had to

I look forward to Laura's next book about the fantastic Vedic
Paresh Desai commented on Kashyapa Hora Systems Of Nadi Astrology* - http://shop.saptarishisastrology.com/:
I read this book long back and there is no doubt that this is a unique system. At times I have noticed stunning results using this method but at times failure. Maybe i have not understood it and ofcourse there is always a difference between learning from a book and learning directly from the author, hence i might be making mistakes. But i do recommend this book and request other students to go deeper into this unique system of horary astrology

Very few authors go into writing on chakras, this is a brilliant attempt to say the least. I have read and re-read this book 3 times and everytime i can feel that we must delve deeper into chakras. Unfortunately only one or two authors have gone into publishing their works on chakras.

Dear Ehsan Kh,
The apparent difference between Indian and Western formulas of Lots/Saham is on account of different computation techniques. But the end result would be SAME, whatever system you follow. Indians have been slightly complex in approach than Westerners/Persians/Arabs. Let’s understand through simple illustrations.
Suppose in a day born nativity, Sun is at 10 degree Virgo; Moon is at 10 degree Scorpio; and Ascendant is at 10 degree Sagittarius.
Fortuna through Western/Persian/Arabic method:
Lot of Fortune is computed from Sun to Moon, and added to Ascendant (if birth is diurnal). In other words, starting from Sun, count how far Moon is lying from Sun, and project the difference on Ascendant. Mathematically it is formulated as:
=> Ascendant + Moon – Sun
= 10* Sag. + 10* Sco. – 10* Vir. = 10* Aqu.
Hence native of Example-1 has Lot of Fortune at 10 degree Aquarius, and its lord is Saturn.
Even we can mentally/orally calculate Lot of Fortune here (because longitudes of all parameters are close enough). From Virgo-Sun, Scorpio-Moon is three signs away. Therefore add three signs into Sagittarius-Ascendant. This becomes Aquarius. Simple is that.
Now compute Lot of Fortune for the same native through Indian way.
Punnya Saham through Indian Tajika System:
Indians’ Punnya Saham is actually Lot of Fortune. Punnya is a translation of Arabic term Sa’adatt (means virtue). B.V. Raman in his book Varshphala maintains Punnya Saham as follows.
Punnya Saham = Moon – Sun + Asc.
(add 30 degree if Ascendant is NOT lying between minuend and subtrahend).
In above equation, minuend is Moon, and subtrahend is Sun. Now check starting from minuend (Moon) up to subtrahend (Sun). If Asc. is not falling in between them then ADD 30 degree. If Asc. is falling in between them then DO NOT ADD 30 degree.
Here Moon is in 10*Scorpio and Sun is in 10* Virgo. Since, Ascendant at 10* Sagittarius is NOT falling in between Moon and Sun therefore we need to ADD 30*.
Punnya Saham = Moon – Sun + Asc. + 30*
= 10* Sco. – 10* Vir. + 10* Sag. +30*
Indian first translate longitudes of three parameters into 360 degree format.
= 220* – 160* + 250* + 30*
=> 340* is equal to 10 degree Aquarius.
Thus native of Example-1 has Punnya Saham in 10 degree Aquarius, and its lord is Saturn, which is same as we computed earlier according to simple Western/Persian formula.

The Article on Intercepted Houses by Anitaji is wonderful.
This is one of the best articles ( on Astrological subjects) I have ever come across.
Many thanks for this.
I expect more articles from Anitaji as she always handles unique subjects with utmost simplicity. After reading every such article I feel enriched.

Steven Stuckey commented on your status.
Steven wrote: "One combination for possession mentioned by B.V. Raman in his "300 Important Combinations" is #287, "Pisacha Grastha Yoga". The combination is defined as: "When Rahu is in Lagna and in conjunction with the Moon and the malefics join trines, the above yoga is given rise to." He goes on to say that "when the Moon is with Rahu and Saturn, or Saturn aspects Moon-Rahu combination, especially in Lagna, the person doubtless suffers from evil spirits or devils." I've found the above combination of Moon/Rahu/Saturn to be true when found in the Lagna. I once met a woman who admitted to seeing ghosts all the time--she had a close conjunction of Moon/Rahu/Saturn in Scorpio in the Lagna. Rahu is the main 'planet' that opens the doorway to the unseen and subtle worlds. If one has, in addition, an unbalanced combination for mental and emotional health such as a difficult Moon/Saturn combination, then the invisible realms may intrude, unwanted, into one's present reality. Rahu and Moon can be positive factors also for seeing the 'other side', but when together and combined with Saturn, they tend to attract more negative factors."
Astrloger Raju Ramrakhyani Truly said ...even I have come up with charts of rahu and moon ...the same experience you told us,and about b v Raman I salute him for his dedication towards astrology ......
A couple who were disciples of Bhaskarananda once came to him with a serious problem. An astrologer, who also happened to be a disciple, had cast the horoscope of their only son, Ganesh. The astrologer told them that their son would die in an accident at the age of sixteen, and he advised the parents not to allow the son to marry. The father wanted to listen to the astrologer's advice, but the mother wanted the son to get married, so they came to the Master to learn what they should do.
Bhaskarananda said, "Yes, your son should marry. It is predestined. You are right that it will be a deplorable experience for his wife to become a widow at a very tender age. But I clearly see that this girl has a special connection with him in the soul's world, and both of them are destined to get married. Both he and she need this experience. Ganesh is now thirteen years old. It is true that he is supposed to die at the age of sixteen, but I shall delay his death for a couple of years. I will not allow him to die until I die."
So Ganesh got married. A few years went by, and he passed his sixteenth birthday without incident. Then one day Bhaskarananda was attacked by the most fatal disease in India, cholera. On the same day, Ganesh fell from a horse and was knocked unconscious. Ganesh remained senseless for three days and Bhaskarananda suffered from cholera also for three days. Bhaskarananda passed away at noon on the third day, and at that very moment Ganesh also left the world.
Experience is of prime importance. Sometimes the experience of U N I O N, sometimes the experience of separation, sometimes the experience of re-U N I O N, sometimes the experience of eternal separation, are necessary for the physical reality in us. To make progress and, while making progress, to realise that there is only one Reality Supreme - this is the experience that is constantly needed both here on earth and there in Heaven. And that Reality Supreme is God Himself.
With his yogic power, Bhaskarananda kept Ganesh on earth for a few years more than his due; otherwise, Ganesh would have passed away before. To give him and his dear ones experiences that would help them in future incarnations, the Master gave Ganesh an extended lease on life. True spiritual Masters can do this, but they do it only when it has been decreed by the Absolute Supreme.

Cancer Asc and Venus
Obviously this will not work always but lets teat this
Dont ask me who is mehta saheb, I expect readers here to have read most of articles of SA magazine
Mehta saheb says for cancer asc , venus in 1st H the marriage life of the native gets spoilt/destroyed and he or her would have to get married again, irrespective of the position of 7th lord saturn.
Nitin Mathur Logic given by Mehta Sir in the concerned sutra says Venus in Cancer Asc. (in exaltation according to Mehta Sir's theory) aspects 7th house (deblited house for Venus, according to him). Aspect of fall of Venus to 7th destroys marriage and Positional exaltation of Venus leads to get native married again. The reason of bad effect on Venus to 7th lies in Mehta Saab's another theory where he says that Natural Benefit Planets denotes Living Things and Natural Malefic denotes Non-Living Thing. That's why he says that debilitated Venus (Natural Benefic) affects wife (Living Thing) but not other concerns of 7th house.
Prabodh Purohit Shri Navinbhai writes in his book , if Venus in Cancer ascendent in male chart then it should be in aspect of Jupiter and in female chart it should in aspect or associate of Jupiter and or Saturn otherwise it creates remarriage/ other relation .. OM
Ramesh Thakker Venus in cancer asc. Spoils the married life. This is not true. Other factors should be considered. I have one chart with cancer asc. Venus in first, sun & jupiter in second, mer in third, moon in forth, sat &rahu in fifth, mars in eight, happy married lif
