  • wb~stbira Dasba?

    For many years I had struggled with Sthira Dasha because I found that if one followed what was advocated by many writers like DrB.V. Raman and others many horoscopes would be without Brahma. Without Brahma the Sthira Dasha would not be applicable. It appeared odd to me because Sthira Dasha is a general dasha of Jaimini and should be applicable to all horoscopes. If it was not a general dasha then it would become applicable only to some horoscopes which satisfied the conditions given which were:

    The method which we have rejected 1. Brahma had to be a planet in the visible half of a horoscope and 2. It should be in an odd rashi.

    These two conditions are not generally satisfied in a majority of horoscopes. I corresponded with lranganti Rangacharya and asked how could these conditions be satisfied in majority of horoscopes and why a general dasha should thus be turned in a conditional dasha. Iranganti agreed with me that Sthira Dasha would become a conditional dasha in these conditions but he had no clear solution to this problem. I told him that some years ago, my problem had been solved by a traditional Punjab astrologer whom I met accidentally when a subordinate working under me brought him to my office room. That pandit introduced himself as one of the rare astrologers of Pub jab using Jaimini dashas. I asked him if he did Sthira dasha. He said he did and could demonstrate to me on the spot then and there.

    The Punjab astrologer's method I took out some horoscopes I had with me in my office and

    gave them to him and demonstrate his method. He proceeded to calculate rashi and graha bala and then he demonstrated his method which was:

    I. Find out the strongest of the houses between the lagna and seventh house. n .

    2. Find out the the strongest of the lords of the sixth, eighth and the twelfth houses from the stronger of the houses between the lagna and the seventh houses.

    3. Now among these planets exclude Saturn and never consider Rahu and Ketu because they have no place in the scheme of the calculation of graha and rashi ba/a scheme. I interrupted him and asked him what the authority for this

    method. He recited a shlokaand promised to send me his manuscript after getting back to his place in Punjab. He could not do it as soon after getting back to his place he died. His name was perhaps Tek Chand and he met me only once but spent nearly eighth hours with me demonstrating his method and 1 must say that I was highly impressed.

    But I had made sure to test his method and so asked him to show to me how it worked. He took nearly ten horoscopes of some persons from me about whom he knew nothing and pinpointed the fatal periods of their lives which was very accurate. I was impressed and decided to try his method.

    My own testing I tested his method on series of horoscopes including mine and

    of many friends whom I knew very intimately. There is no doubt that like Nirayana Shoola Dasha, this dasha worked very well in pointing out periods of fatality in the life of a person. But there was a difference. While in Nirayana Shoola Dasha, the broad periods became visible, here it was possible to narrow down the period better.

    Predicting about fatal periods In any scheme of prediction about fatal period it was better to

    use simultaneously both of these dashas and see if they were in harmony with the indications available in the Vimshottari dasha. It is generally not sound astrology to make predictions about fatal events unless they are checked thorougly through three or more dashas and also on vargas.

    But in doing Sthira dasha, I found that even the good events of life could be predicted just as we can do through Chara dasha which is also a general dasha applicable to all horoscopes.

  • Why Sthira Dasha? Predicting through Jaimtni's Sthira Dasha

    Then I taught this method to successive batches of students in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, New Delhi and asked them to test it on the horoscopes in their collection.

    How Akhila came to write this book While many students did It and reported its successful

    application, it was left to Akhila Kumar to keep working on it lor some years now. Then when she joined the teaching faculty olthe Institute of Astrology in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, she was given Jaimini to teach to students and particularly Sthira dasha which she did.

    Along with teaching she continued with her researches and told me many times that she found that she could use Sthira dasha lor predicting normal events of life along with fatal ones. It was a good progress and I asked her to produce her researches in a book form following the scheme which 1 gave in my book Mandook Dasha.

    She has followed that scheme systematically outlining first the scheme of Sthira Dasha, definitions of Brahma, Rudra and Maheshwara. Then she took twelve horoscopes lor all twelve lagnas and showed its application. Finally she has given enlarged portraits where horoscopes are discussed in detail.

    The novel features Akhila has discussed in this book some of those events of life

    which we discuss through other dashas also. Some of the events covered here are the time of marriage, ups and down in career. The crux of predictions, she says, emerges out when the significance of karakas are kept in the mind and their role in the events that have happened are seen clearly.

    I asked Akhila to try using this dasha lor mundane events. 1 gave her the horoscopes 1 had and also told her about some landmarks in these cases. Application of Sthira Dasha to mundane events is a very novel feature of this book. Akhila has taken up the horoscope of Independent India of 14/ I 5 Aug I 947 and of the two well political parties, the Congress(!) and the Bharatiya Janata Party and has traced some well known events. It will be interesting to see how dependable this method is. As far as I know such an application to mundane charts has not been done by astrologer ever before-

    Having made a break through in the application of this dasha, I hope students will make wider uses and researches in this dasha and come out with additional points lor the benefit of all.

    In Jaimini system, there are about 44 dashas, out of which, only two or three dashas are used for predictions. Some of the important dashas are Chara Dasha, Sthira Dasha, Mandook Dasha etc. Chara dash a and Mandook Dasha are the dashas used for predicting all events in a native's life while Sthira Dasha and Nirayana Shoola Dasha have been used partially for predicting sickness, fatal events and death.

    Chara Dasha is applicable to all horoscopes. Among the specific dashas, Mandook is also one which is applied in a horoscope with special conditions, i.e. when a chart has four or more planets in kendriiS exduding Rilhu il!ld Ketuso that it comes under the category of a conditional dasha, and rom this dasha also all sorts of events can be predicted.

    Likewise Sthira Dasha is also a kind of dasha which has certain conditions. To calc
