KALACHAKRA DASA P.V.R. Narasimha RaoMay 29, 1998Summer Jyotish Workshop Arsha Vidya Gurukulam Saylorsburg, PA USA 1998 Narasimha P.V.R. Rao Warning: You cannot reproduce any parts of this article, without written permission from the author.

DedicationI would like to humbly dedicate this lecture to the lotus feet of my three gurus:1.

My father Sri P.V.S. Chalapathi Rao: He was my first guru. My young mind cannot understand how he could remain so humble, despite being conversant with all aspects of theory, in addition to being blessed with an unmatched power of intuition. He is my role model!

2.

Prof. B.V. Raman: His books were immensely helpful to me, when I was thousands of miles away from my father. Though I never met him, I reverentially consider him my guru. If only I had one-millionth of his knowledge and power of intuition, I would be a world-famous astrologer!

3.

Sri Sanjay Rath: A brilliant astrologer, scholar and author, he blessed me by accepting me as a sishya (disciple).

He has all the qualities I hoped my guru would have. I am grateful to him for accepting me as a student and I will strive to be a worthy student! I would like to reverentially remember these three great men, whose blessings brought me here today!

SalutationLet us salute to the energy that governs this universe and manifestations of that energy that enable us to learn this divine knowledge Goddess Saraswati, Lord Brihaspati and Lord Hayagreeva. Let us salute to the presiding deity Lord Dakshinamurthy and to Swami Dayananda Saraswati who founded this Gurukulam. Let us salute to illustrious astrologers, seers and sages from Maharshi Parasara and Maharshi Jaimini to Kalidasa and Varahamihira to Prof. B.V. Raman and Mr. K.N. Rao for unselfishly and generously bringing this divine knowledge down to us, mere mortals. Let us salute to the power of Jupiter, who, at the time of this lecture, occupies own rasi, own constellation and exalted navamsa. The teacher of Gods occupies his own sign in 6 out of 16 vargas (divisions) and his exaltation sign in 3 other vargas! More importantly, he is exalted in D-24, the varga for "learning". From Guru lagna in D-24, at the time of this lecture, 1st and 3rd lords have a parivartana (exchange), indicating good communication in learning-related activities started at this time. May Jupiter and Mercury, conjoined in D-24 in Cancer, a watery sign, bless this class with fertile imagination, logic, discretion, vision and an alert state of mind!

Before We Proceed It must be borne in mind that this author is not the final authority on this subject. There

are many scholars who are more knowledgeable than this author. The main qualification of this author is his sheer desire to share with you his very little knowledge and experience

Kalachakra DasaKalachakra means the "wheel of time" Strengths: Sage Parasara called it "the most acceptable" (i.e., the best) dasa system among "all" dasa systems. The exact verse in Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra: "kaalachakra kaalachakra

yaa". daSaa chaanyaa maanyaa sarva daSaasu yaaThis means (exactly): "There is another dasa called Kalachakra dasa, which is the most acceptable (respectable) among all dasas." Also, before explaining the computation of Kalachakra dasa to Maitreya, Parasara prays to the Lord, a gesture not enacted before explaining any other dasa. My experience shows the same. I use many dasa systems - Vimsottari, Yogini, Narayana, Chara, Ashtottari, Dwadasottari, Dwisaptati Sama, Satabdika, AshtakavargaVimsottari etc. Kalachakra dasa consistently gave me the best results. If one becomes good at using Kalachakra dasa, one will surely get addicted to it! Drawback: They are highly sensitive to birthtime errors. Kalachakra dasa dates change by about 3 months, if birthtime changes by 1 minute. But there are methods to overcome this drawback and I will explain them later.

All constellations belong to one of the two cycles "Savya" (zodiacal) and "Apasavya" (anti-zodiacal). Each cycle is again divided into 2 groups. Thus there are 4 groups Savya-1, Savya-2, Apasavya-1 and Apasavya-2. Table 3: Groups of ConstellationsSavya CycleAswini (1) Bharani (2) Krittika (1) Rohini (1) Mrigasira (2) Ardra (2) Punarvasu (1) Pushyami (2) Asresha (1) Makha (1) Poorvaphalguni (2) Uttaraphalguni (2) Hasta (1) Chitra (2) Swati (1) Visakha (1) Anuradha (2) Jyeshtha (2) Moola (1) Poorvashadha (2) Uttarashadha (1) Sravanam (1)

Based on natal Moon's constellation, one of the 4 groups is picked. (e.g. Poorvabhadra belongs to Savya cycle - Group 1, based on Table 3) Each group has 4 dasa cycles. Based on the pada (constellation quarter) occupied by natal Moon, dasa cycle operating at birth is chosen."Savya-I" Constellations: Aswini, Krittika, Punarvasu, Asresha, Hasta, Swati, Moola,Uttarashadha, Poorvabhadra, Revati

The fraction of natal Moon's constellation quarter (pada) that was left untraversed at birth is evaluated. This fraction of the total length of birthtime dasa cycle (given under the column "Paramayush" in the tables above) is left at birth. Example: Suppose one is born in the 3rd quarter of Ardra, with 0.1 (10%) of the constellation quarter yet to be traversed (at birth) by natal Moon. From Table 3, we find that Ardra belongs to Apasavya cycle - group 2. From the dasa cycle table for "Apasavya cycle, group 2, quarter-3", we find the dasa cycle as "Ge Le Cn Vi Li Sc Pi Aq Cp" and "paramayush" as 85 years. So 8.5 years of this cycle are left at birth. Considering that the lengths of the 9 dasas in this sequence is "9, 5, 21, 9, 16, 7, 10, 4, 4 (from Table 1), the running dasa at birth is Pisces (9.5 out of 10 years over and 0.5 years left at birth). After that, 4 years of Aq dasa and then 4 years of Cp dasa will follow. This is the break-up of the 8.5 years of remainder in dasa cycle at birth.

After one dasa cycle, dasas proceed to the next dasa cycle in the same mega-cycle (savya or apasavya) containing 8 dasa-cycles (note: four dasa cycles corresponding to the four quarters in each of the two groups in the same cycle - savya and apasavya - form one mega-cycle of 8 dasa-cycles). Examples will make this clear! On reaching the end of the dasa cycle of 3rd quarter in Apasavya-2 (as in above example), one would start the dasa cycle corresponding to the 4th quarter in the same group. After the end of it, dasa cycle corresponding to the 1st quarter of Apasavya-1 group will start. Antardasas in a dasa will start with the dasa sign itself and proceed cyclically among all signs in the dasa cycle.
