Planets give different phalas (results) in each of the 27 nakshatras (lunar mansions). These phalas relate to the quarter (charana/pada) of a nakshatra in which a planet is placed and the dristhi (aspect) of other planets that it receives. The beauty of Ravana Samhita is that a planet in one pada might give problematical results, whereas in the next pada of the same nakshatra it can give fortunate results. This difference is subtly highlighted and one that an intelligent student must not ignore. Here follows the fifth in this series of translations of Ravana Samhita, relating to the fifth asterism Mrigashira, which stretches from 53 degrees-20 minutes to 66 degrees-20 minutes of the natural zodiac. The Lord of this nakshatra is Mars.
