Creation of individual birth charts for subjects born with (time) difference of few minutes -Pt. Satyadev Sharma

satydev Sharma Img

Creation of perfect birth chart depends on the accurate birth time, co-ordinates of birth place of native as well as time of sunrise (at that location of birth). At any place, the ascendant’s time period will be governed by the latitude of that place and time of sunrise in turn depends on the latitude- longitude as well as declination (kranti). Ascendant depends on time of sunrise and latitude of swasthana. Every place experiences rise of ascendants of 12 rashis in 24 hours i.e. 60 ghatis.

At any place in India (for that matter on earth at particular moment), all planets have same spashtha (true) rashi, degrees, kala and vikala. Any location is not able to influence these factors. But planets which are spastha (true) as per local time (dhup ghadi) will be dissimilar at different places. On the other hand, Indian Standard Time (ISI) is same.

Different dashas like vimshottari, ashtottari, yogini, kalachakra etc. reckoned on the basis of moon in a particular nakshatra (bhukta bhogya kaal of moon in a nakshtra) will be same at any place i.e. those will be of same planet and of same (time) period. For example,  at 22nd May’1948, in morning at 00HRS 45 MIN (after midnight), if someone is born, then at this particular time true moon will be 6|22|20|51 rashyadi and Jupiter’s bhogyadasha will be of 13 years 2 months and 5 days. Janma Nakshatra[1] will be Vishakha with 1st charana (pada) and ascendant will be Aquarius at Jaipur, India. All subjects born on this day and time will have same dasha of Jupiter, same dasha period, same Nakshatra and same charana.  All true planets all over India will be same (rashi. Amsha. Kala. vikala)  but their ascendants will be different as per longitudes.

In India at all places (on earth for that matter) planet dashas reckoned from nakshtras as well as from rashis and their dasha period, shodash vargas[2] of planets, states (avastha) of planets, vyaparadi, graham rashmi, grahapada (Jaimini and Parashara), awakadaha di, uccha bal, yugmayugma bal, vargabal, dreshkana bal, paksha bal, varsha-mas-din bal, ayana bal, cheshta bal, drugbal, nisarga bal, etc will be similar at abhishta time and day. All other calculations which involve true planets and moon Nakshatra will also be same irrespective of ascendant.

In this manner, at abhishta time where same ascendant is rising, (mesh or vrishabha or mithuna etc.)  such places will have similar calculations in addition to other calculations like chara dasha, ashtak varga, Kendra bal, digbal etc.

In case of different ascendants (shodash vargadi) in varga kundalis and chakras, only rashi placed in varga lagna (for varga kundalis) will be unlike. This is because it depends upon the ascendant as well as its rashi. Amsa.kala.vikala.  Varga kundali is an indicator of varga position of planets, so position of different vargas of planets will also be similar.

Summary of the above commentary is that, subject born at any place in India at any typical time (as per Indian standard Time), will have all similar calculations stated above where same ascendant is rising. On virtue of this fact, each subject with that (particular) lagna will have bhavishyaphal (future) similar to those people who have same ascendants. For example, if at any particular time at such places where Aries ascendant is rising, then all Aries ascendant persons will have similar future. If it is a Taurus, then (Taurus) ascendant persons will have similar future. This will be true also for people with other ascendants. Even though (at moment) ,at different places same ascendant is rising, the  rashi amsa kala vikal of lagna (ascendant) will vary on virtue of their (individual) latitudes and longitudes.

Jaimini sutras are different style of phaladesha (system of prediction), which will be described in other write ups. It considers aspect (drishti) of signs as well as aspect of planets placed in them at the same time. In similar manner other things are also based on sings. Generally all astrologers make predictions as per Jaimini Sutras by considering complete rashi as ascendant as well as bhava, even in Parashari system. It is incorrect as per above commentary.

So, we can say that, all subjects born on a particular time will have future i.e. life cycle only of 12 types, as per individual ascendant.  Each (subject) with similar ascendant will experience similar incidents in life and their time of happening will also be same as well (dasha period and dasha).

In the period of a particular ascendant, unless the planetary positions in rashis and navanshadi (9th harmonic) varga get changed, everyone will have similar bhavishyaphal. This is because, our sutras of phalit scriptures (references or books), doesn’t provide any deeper information in this aspect.

In the system of Ashtak varga, irrespective of ascendant’s degree, kala, vikala, shubhata of planets and rashis will only depend on count of rekha and bindus. Most of the phalas (calculated) as per this technique, has no connection with ascendant or degrees of planets. That’s why, as per system of Ashtak varga, for subjects with similar ascendants, shubha-shubhata of planets as well as bhavas will be similar. Ashtak varga takes into consideration bindus and rekhas of rashi or planet for phalit and gochar phaladesh. In nutshell, as per the technique of Ashtak Varga phaladesh technique, sukshmata (minute details) of planets, ascendant or bhava spashtha is not required.

As per gochara (transit) system, there will be no difference in phala (result) as per ascendant’s of planet’s ra. Am. Ka. vi. Gochar vashat planet predictions are made according to Chandra Lagna, Janma lagna has no importance in this system. So in gochar vashat , till moon placed in particular rashi for 2.5 days, and other planets are also not changing their positions, subjects born in this period will have similar phalakathana. This is as per commonly used system of phalakathana (method of predictions).

Speed of all planets other than moon is very slow for one day. So in a particular (abhishtha) day in the period of ascendant, there will be difference of few seconds (kala and vikala) only. Consequently planets other than ascendant and moon will have same shodashadi varga and the same tara chakra. In this manner in ashtak varga bhinnashta, prastarashtaka, sarvashtaka, trikonashodhana, ekadhipatyashodhana and shodh panda will be completely alike (with no difference).

The inference of this discussion  is that , if the difference in birth time is minute, then other than ascendant there will be similarity in shodasha varga, ashtaka varga, most of the dashas, graha bala,  of planets etc (as stated earlier).

Then, why subjects born under such situations experiences different kinds of jeevan chakra?  (life cycle/ future) Or how separate (different) charts can be made for them?  Acharyas have answered to this problem in following shloka:

(Shloka, Surya Jataka)

यात्राविनाहचौलान्नप्राथने जन्मनि व्रने।

नुपान्मिषेके कर्तव्याभावा द्वादशक्षारथे॥

yātrāvināhacaulānnaprāthane janmani vrane |

nupānmiṣeke kartavyābhāvā dvādaśakṣārathe ||

Interpretation : He sarathi (charioteer),  at the time of yatra (journey), marriage, Chaul, Anna Prashana, birth, yadynopavit (Sacred Thread ceremony) and inauguration to throne (Rajyabhisheka), phala of planets should be known (calculated) by true (spashta) bhava.


(Shloka, Sudha Nidhi)

जन्माऽब्दपृच्घादिशुभाशुभेषु भावाः विघेथा शुघिपा यतोऽत्र।

तत्रद्वशेनैव दिशन्ति नित्यं शुभाशुभं भावफलं नृभोगाः॥

janmā’bdapṛcghādiśubhāśubheṣu bhāvāḥ vighethā śughipā yatoo’tra |

tatradvaśenaiva diśanti nityaṁ śubhāśubhaṁ bhāvaphalaṁ nṛbhoogāḥ ||

Interpretation : As specified in Sudhanidhi, at the moment of query of birth, year etc., for shubhashuba phal of bhavastha (I think it means, planets placed in bhava You are correct, sunil Ji), (one should) make 12 bhavas spashta. Since, planets give shubhashubha phal on virtue of their bhava vash (bhava positions). (pls Check)

(Shloka, Shripati Bhavasagar)

Interpretation: Shripati has stated yogadi on the basis of bhavastha planets in janmadi. For example, at the time of birth, yatra (journey), upanayan (sacred thread ceremony), chaul, inauguration to throne (Rajyabhisheka), and marriage phala from combinations (yogas) of planets wil be as per bhava spastha.


Interpretation: Here also it is specified that, bhavajanya phala (phala produced by bhava) will be by bhavastha planets (planets present in the bhava). The summary of this (discussion) is that, Phalas that are given by bhava or planets from which generally (on basis of positions) bhava phala, raja yoga, and immediate friendship chakra (tatkalik maître chakra) etc, phala should be fixed by considering the bhava. At instance where phala is described from the indication of  rashi in ashtaka vargadi, their decision should be finalized on the basis of rashi bala i.e. rekha bindu.

If rashi, degrees etc are equivalent to degrees of bhava, then bhavastha planet gives complete result (phala). If it is less or more than degrees (anshadi) of bhava, then phala should be known by equation i.e. proportionately. Planet gives results only after entering into bhava and it doesn’t give any result, if it is (placed) in sandhi (border of sign)



Interpretation: As per Bhavsandhi, if planet is less than the start of the house, then it will give the result of previous bhava (prathama, purva) and if end (viram, anta) of house is more than degrees of planet then it gives results of next bhava.

Bhavakundali Prayojanamuktam Vamanet:


Interpretation: In  the purpose of bhavakundali, Acharya Vamana explains that amongs 12 rashis, diffrernt rashis in rashichakra should be placed / configured (Nyasa) and on the basis of planets present (in them), ishtha phala of jeeva (individual) should be fixed (thought upon). Off course, one should know that planets present in houses of the bhava-kundali (house chart) presents results to jeeva (individual / prani).

Bhavaphala Prashansamah Bharadwaj:


Interpretation: Sage Bharadwaj (maharshi) has appreciated bhavastha planets (planets present in bhavas). (In his commentary he says that) at the time of seemant ( crossing of the border of town or a city),  birth, chaul, sacred thread ceremony (upanayan), journey, pravesh (ingress),  abhisheka and marriage, bhavastha planets have good (comfortable) results.

Bhaspastha Vidhi Parashar:


Interpretation: 15-15 degrees of these lagnadi bhavas are known as ‘dipransha’. Every lagna and bhavamadhya begins from 15 degrees rear of bhavamadhya spastha and gives phala to 15 degrees front. And in totality every bhava is of 30 degrees. In this way respectively by adding each and every rashi, lagnadi bhava and 15 degrees in them (it gives), sandhis of bhavas becomes true (spastha). (pls check). If planet is spashtha equivalent to bhavaspastha, they will give purna phala (complete results), and from the start of bhava sandhi, phala (result) will respectively lift up.  Planet in combination with last sandhi will not give any result (nishphala). If graha spashta lies in the centre, then one should judge it proportionally.

This is the arsha samabhava method, which should be used.  

Other Method of Bhavaspashtha:


Interpretation: Subtract spashtha lagna (True Asc) from chaturtha (fourth), subtract chaturtha (foruth) from saptama (seventh), subtract saptama (seventh) from dashama (tenth) and subtract dashama (tenth) from asc , (then) lagnadi bhava madhya  will be spastha respectively if tritiyansha (of result of subtraction)  are arranged as lagna, chaturtha, saptama, and dashama bhava respectively with one, two and three times (of tritiyansha). Sandhi of two bhavas happens when half of equivalent (tulya) of back and front of the bhavamadhya combines (yoga).

In this (calculation), Madhya of fourth bhava is known (calculated) by configuring (putting) six rashis in first lagna and six rashis in dashama bhava. (Now after this calculation one should) place planets as per rashi, anshas and bhava after calculation of bhava sadhana along with their sandhis. In this manner, bhav chalit kundali of this samabhava should be created for phaladesha. Ashtaka varga and gochar should be considered as per this kundali. While taking into consideration the gochar, bhava kundali should be created as per instructions given above by taking Chandra lagna Madhya equivalent to Chandra spashtha. Gochar planet positions should be calculated as per bhava kundali of Chandra and knowing their (gochara planet’s) entry and exit timings in bhava, gochar phaladesh should be specified.

By following this method of creation of bhava kundali, children born under the period of same ascendant with the difference of 2-3-4 etc. minutes will have different bhava kundali as well as positions of planets changed in them (bhava kundali). This is because, the speed of the lagna is 30 degrees in the period of 1, 1.5, 2 hrs of lagna kala (asc period). So, lagna spashtha gets changed in 2-3-4 minutes of the lagna kala (period) timings, consequently the places / positions of bhava Madhya and sandhis gets modified . But in such a short period, in most of the cases positions of planets gets altered in bhava / chalit kundali on virtue of very slow speed of planets. As a result of this, subjects born with the time difference of few minutes will have separate future (phaladesha). Also the gochara and ashtaka varga gets modified.

So, as per the principles of Astrology (Jyotisha Shastra), phaladesha of a subject should be given (calculated) from bhava / chalit kundali. Phaladesha technique where complete rashi is considered as bhava is brief and against the science (of astrology). Bhava kundali is created in the birth chart, but neither is it considered for phaladesha nor is it used for calculating ashtaka varga, for the knowledge of gochara Chandra / bhava kundali is created.  (pls chack.) (Sunil ji, there is slight confusion in original script, needs to be checked with Pandit ji). As a result of this practice, predictions become further inaccurate.

Other than this, Sage Parashara has given mantra that proves true in the modern scientific realm, by which (some) gunas (positive aspects) of subjects gets augmented. 


Interpretation: Gunas related to Parents, Birth time and company (sangati, persons accompanying an individual) gets stronger in subject. So, other than phaladesha given as per the kundali created from communicated birth time, subject gets more and more influenced by the race (vansha) of parents and the conditions under which he has born and brought up.  From this shloka of Sage Parashara, many queries/ questions related to disparity of predictions given by the astrologer and actual incidents happening in reality gets answered.
