Pearls from DV Subbha Rao

In Bhaskara’s Bhava Deepika, it is said that a benefic in the 10th is necessary to perform religious sacrifices leading to Moksha. Guru in the 10th makes one a Gnani (knowledge man) but Ketu in 10th can advance the native further after real knowledge, devotion and yogik action leading to ultimate salvation, that is, while the theoretical part of spiritualism is governed by Jupiter, the practical side of spiritualism is dominated by Ketu.

In Sarvagna Bhushana, a powerful benefic in the 10th house inclines one to look at the various positions from the spiritual angle and realize the worthlessness and instability of the various things and enjoyments on the earthly planet and develops a renouncing spirit which is called Gnana. Malefics in the 10th house makes on look from a materialistic angle. Benefic in the house when powerful (positional strength, varga strength and Avasta strength) leads one to higher thinking.

Kamadehenu Yoga is caused when the 11th lord occupies a kendra and the native is revered by kings, own women and is intelligent – Vasista Jataka

It should be noted that yogas are caused only when the concerned yoga karaka planets are unafflicted.

When the 5th lord attains a kendra, Padmaraga yoga is caused. This makes one annihilate enemies. – Vasista Jataka

Priyamruti yoga is caused when the 7th lord aspects the 8th lord. The native will become a widow in the dasa of the 8th lord

When the 10th lord obtains a kendra and aspected by a benefic this yoga called Suprajata Yoga is caused. The native will enjoy life well and becomes a famous – Vasista Jataka

The lords of 5th and 6th in conjunction occupying the 3rd bhava, confers this yoga called Saradeepa Sakti Yoga. These people are insignificant, they suffer many sided agonies, they cannot live in their own houses. These results are severe for persons born in Kanya Lagna.

Ashtakvarga related Yoga – Veena Yoga

This yoga relates to Astaka varga. The bindus in the 12 houses should be divided into three parts. Commencing from Pisces upto Gemini, the total number of bindus constitutes the second part. From Cancer to Libra, the total constitutes the 2nd Part. From Scorpio to Aquarius, the total constitutes the 3rd part. When the bindus in the first part are much more than that of the 2nd and 3rd, this yoga is caused. These natives will enjoy much fortune in the beginning. In the middle age, it will be lessened and in the 3rd part of life, they enjoy little comforts.

Srimad Bhagavatam

SB 7.7.51-52: My dear friends, O sons of the demons, you cannot please the Supreme Personality of Godhead by becoming perfect brahmanas, demigods or great saints or by becoming perfectly good in etiquette or vast learning. None of these qualifications can awaken the pleasure of the Lord. Nor by charity, austerity, sacrifice, cleanliness or vows can one satisfy the Lord. The Lord is pleased only if one has unflinching, unalloyed devotion to Him. Without sincere devotional service, everything is simply a show.
SB 7.7.53: My dear friends, O sons of the demons, in the same favorable way that one sees himself and takes care of himself, take to devotional service to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is present everywhere as the Supersoul of all living entities.
SB 7.7.54: O my friends, O sons of demons, everyone, including you (the Yakshas and Rakshasas), the unintelligent women, sudras and cowherd men, the birds, the lower animals and the sinful living entities, can revive his original, eternal spiritual life and exist forever simply by accepting the principles of bhakti-yoga.
SB 7.7.55: In this material world, to render service to the lotus feet of Govinda, the cause of all causes, and to see Him everywhere, is the only goal of life. This much alone is the ultimate goal of human life, as explained by all the revealed scriptures.
