Sanjeev Ranjan wrote: "BSP rules are really effective. In astrology everything is derived or deduced from kaal purush kundali. Mars is first and 8th house lord of kaal purush first house represents life, prestige and self –and 8th house represents suddenness ,operation and accident and Mars is karak of land and property- so when Mars is associated with any planet or karak these qualities are automatically attached to the planet or karak. If mars is with Sun the qualities of Mars is automatically attached to Sun – father will have landed property, he will have to undergo accident, litigation and suddenness in life and he will be associated with father for long. Venus is lord of 2nd and 7th house –which is marak house i.e. Venus is naturally associated with death or pain inflicting traits .But it also represents finance, pleasure , attachment and association and is karak of beauty and pleasure –so when Venus is associated with any planet these qualities are automatically attached to these planets – when Sun and Venus is associated it means that father is good looking , person’s eyes are beautiful , father will enjoy worldly pleasure but he will have to undergo setbacks, pain and death like situation in life and the person [ not father ] will have some defect ,pain or Surgery in eye. In this way all the association can be understood. Mercury is lord of 3ed and 6th house –which represents communication, play ,siblings ,relatives , disease and enmity and is karak of speech and communication—due to this he is called God’s messenger i.e. he increases or spread the effect –when he is associated with any planet these qualities will automatically will be attached to that planet –if Mercury is with Venus –the quality of Venus and mercury will influence each other –wife will be talkative, he may have more than one wife, wife side relative will be more , wife will be perturbed by enemy and relatives, wife voice will be very sweet, she will look young and she will have smiling face. Many other such results can easily be derived. Similarly for other planets results are deduced –planet automatically give there characteristics of house owned in kaal purush kundali and its own karak quality to other planet to whom they are associated. Entire Nadi literature is full of this type of deduction. Exaltation of planets means planets become more powerful to give their effect of lordship or karakatwa—if Venus is in 12th it means that it will give strength to second Bhava I.e. Venusians quality will be much more evident for second Bhava from Venus, similarly Moon gives better result for the planet and house 12th from it, Mars gives good result for the house and planet 4th from it Mercury gives good result for the house and planet 8th from it. Jupiter gives good result for the house and planet 10th from it, Sun gives good result for the house and planet 1st from it, Saturn gives good result for the house and planet 7th from it."

A Mail from a young brilliant astrologer
Been a while I would like to share some observations with you in relation to what I've read in the books you sent me combined with others sources. I even tried to explain to you before but my words were not very clear at the time. I would like to know your briefly opinion about what I will write.
What I noticed is that in the interpretations of the sages (broad sense) they use the house and the sign of exaltation of the planets (point of greatest strength) as a refrence.
For example. Venus affect the house in which he is placed giving medical expenses. Medical expenses, hospitalization,etc. are ruled by the naisargika sign and bhava who exalts Venus (Pisces/ 12H)! So where Venus is positioned he brings the significations of the sign of Pisces and the 12H to that house!
Quoting a principle from JN Bhasin book, he teaches that Venus grants good results for the 2H from himself. Again, If we place Pisces (exaltation sign of Venus) in the house where Venus is positioned. We will have in 2H of naisargika Kundali the sign of Aries, the naisargika 1H of self. So we can interpret that the individuals represented by the 2H from Venus will be benefited for this planet (Venus is a natural benefic planet).
Another example comes from Chandrakala Nadi. Ascendant Sagittarius: The native's father will die in the 27th year of life. (I do not remember if this is exactly how is written the shloka). The 9H becomes a major significator for the native's father being the sign of Leo ruled by the Sun (karaka of the father). The 3H is a strong Maraka house for the father. But we can also consider placing the Sun (father) at the point of greatest strength of that planet (exaltation sign - Aries). In this case the 3H (Aquarius) becomes even more dangerous to the father being 11H from Aries the Badhaka sthana (Aries is a chara rashi). Thus, combining the ascendant with naisargika kundali we can make deductions of possible events and their respective years of manifestation.
Do not seems to you that the points of maximum strength (Uccha) of the planets (where they exhibit their qualities to the extreme) are important to delineate the results of the planets?
What do you think my friend? Am I making sense or just going insane trying to understand the complexity of Jyotisha? heheheh

Narasimha Rao Thank you for your kind words about me. I am truly touched by your dedication and sacrifice for Jyotish.
If one genuinely wants to help someone selflessly, one can make good predictions irrespective of calculations and techniques. However, it was always obvious to me that rasi chart did not have enough degrees of freedom (e.g. so many twins with significantly different lives!). I instinctively believed divisional charts taught by Parasara were the key. That's why I dedicated my life to finer techniques. Good predictions can be made without astrology also. But the goal is, by the time this life ends, to leave behind something "objective" that works reasonably.
* * *
A word about "following": While doing the work we owe the world and came here for, we develop new debts and desires and get bound in that web. It is far more difficult to remain unaffected by praise and following, than even by criticism and abuse! If ever one finds some "perfect knowledge", all one needs is ONE good person to transfer it to. Vimalananda was wise and lucky to have his life story and spiritual teachings published by someone else AFTER he left this world!
* * *
Yes, I was very active during 1999-2005 on yahoogroups (esp vedic-astrology) and seriously into Jyotish researches. Things changed in 2005. I got detached from astrology, became more interested in spirituality and became more active on vedic-wisdom yahoogroup dedicated to spirituality. Also was busy creating the resources needed for the "do homam by yourself" movement (now, there are thousands of people across the world doing a fire ritual by themselves every day/week for spiritual progress and increased dharma in the world - after all, worshipping the divine in fire is common to so many religions/traditions and fire is considered sacred and a representative of god on earth!).
A few years later, I restarted Jyotish researches. But, in a couple of years, I made the blunder of switching to Sri Surya Siddhanta (SSS). It took me a while to realize my error and then I reversed my stance. This blunder was a blessing in disguise though. It taught me humility and introspection, slowed me down and forced me to simply give up everything and start from scratch.
As Vimalananda taught, khandana-mandana (breaking and rebuilding) is needed for true progress. It applies in spiritual sadhana as well as any subject of rishis. One should be willing to tear down existing structures, before building something that lasts long.
As I started from scratch, I questioned ayanamsa and even the definition of divisional charts. For example, this enabled me to discover the errors in standard D2 and D24 definitions, which I already published. After studying Parasara carefully and contemplating, some pieces of the puzzle are now falling in place one after the other. I am in no hurry and will take my sweet time before I publish everything. But the reboot forced by SSS fiasco has been the best thing to happen. Of course, this fiasco may have made some people disillusioned with me - quite reasonable.

Money and power/following are equally binding on ego. The tamasik types run after money and even cheat. The rajasik types are proud of their scholarship and/or seek success/following and praise for their contributions, though they don't cheat for it. The sattwik types do their work calmly, with the same attitude irrespective of the response, surrender it to Lord in the end and leave contented.
We can't do much about the tamasik ones. But even the better of us are honestly of the rajasik type. We can try to transform ourselves into the sattwik type, before pointing fingers at others. Why criticize others, when we too can improve?
In fact, without increasing sattwa in one, one cannot hope to get any real knowledge of rishis...

Just wanted to say that if you did the coding for this website and put it together yourself, you should be building websites for a living. You should be very proud of your design. I've seen a lot of websites but not many measure up to the standard of yours. Excellent job!

As per a recent comment on articles of Ratra ji on upa-pada giving excellent results, I found the article on your website and tried this method on some of the cases I am aware of and so far it has worked out well in all the cases i.e. wherein one can examine the results retrospectively. Except that the ability to apply rules to come up with a prediction also requires experiential knowledge that I lack as a novice so struggling to understand on what this means if - the girl has a reasonably ok chart with Jupiter and Moon aspect on upapada whereas the boy has a ketu aspect on upapada with no benefic aspects. Would the boy's destiny result in breaking of marriage or would girl's destiny protect her marriage given the two benefics ?
Excellent article and thanks to SA and its contributors for a wonderful service to this ancient science of astrology and humanity at large, as marriage is one of the most complex decisions to make in life. I noticed a line in the article that says " Hence, placement sign is called Pitree Bhava. This concept has given excellent results in age calculations, in thousands of horoscopes.".
Has this i.e. age calculations using this method, been already shared in one of the earlier articles on SA?
