Karaka Kendradi Graha Dasa


Sequence
If the Chara Atmakaraka is in an odd sign, the Dasa of the planets in the Panaphara follow the Dasa of the Kendra’s.
If the Chara Atmakaraka is in an even sign, the Dasa of the planets in the Apoklima’s follow the Dasa of the Kendra’s.
If Saturn is in the sign of the Chara Atmakaraka, then irrespective of whether the sign is odd or even, the Dasa of the planets in the Kendra signs will be followed by the Dasa of the planets in the Panaphara.
If Ketu is in is in the sign of the Chara Atmakaraka, then irrespective of whether the Chara Atmakaraka is odd or even, the Dasa of the planets in the Kendra signs will be followed by the Dasa of the planets in the Apoklima’s.
If both Saturn & Ketu are in the sign of the Chara Atmakaraka, then determine the stronger of the two and follow either of rule 3 or 4 above.

Dasa length
Counting from the sign occupied by the planet to its Mülatrikoëa sign and deducting 1 year from the result we find the length of the Dasa in years.
If the planet is exalted, in addition to the above, we add 1 year, whilst if debilitated we deduct 1 year.
If the planet is in own sign it gets the maximum period of 12 years. This is irrespective of its exaltation.
Thereafter, we deduct the result from the Vimshottari Dasa period of the planet. If the result is larger than the Vimshottari period, then we deduct the Vimshottari period from the result.
In case of the nodes, Aquarius is considered for Rahu, whilst Scorpio is considered for Ketu.
If the result of the deduction becomes 0, the period will be the full Vimshottari length. After calculating the years of the nine graha’s, we have completed the 1
st cycle of the Dasa’s. The 2nd cycle comprises of the same planets in the same sequence, however the Dasa length is the Vimshottari length deducted from the previously given result. Adding up the 2 cycles would give a full result of 120 years, which is the length of life for humans.

The given rules must be used to first determine the stronger sign, and later the stronger planet in the signs must be found using the following rules.


  •  Strength of signs

  1. A sign with more graha’s is stronger.
  2. The signs aspected or joined by Jupiter, Mercury or the lord of the sign, are stronger.
Strength
  1. If there are an equal number of planets/aspects, then the state of the planets in the signs must be ascertained i.e. exalted planets are stronger than Moolatrikona, who are stronger than Swakshetra signs, etc. Debilitation signs are weakest.
  2. If they are still equal in strength, then the natural strengths of the lords placed in Dual signs being stronger than fixed signs and fixed signs being stronger than movable signs is considered.
  3. The sign lorded by Atmakaraka is stronger.
  4. If the strengths are still equal, the degrees of the sign-lord must be delineated. One with
    higher degrees (as used in the Chara Karaka scheme) is stronger.
  5. If both lords have the same degrees, then the lord of a sign being in a different oddity than
    its own sign is stronger.
  6. The sign who gives a higher Dasa period is stronger.

  •  Strength of graha’s

  1. A planet placed in exaltation/Moolatrikona or Own sign is stronger in decreasing order.
  2. The degrees of planet must be delineated. One with higher degrees (as used in the Chara
    Karaka scheme) is stronger.
  3. If both have equal number of degrees, the one with higher minutes/seconds is stronger.

  •  Dual Lordship

For Scorpio and Aquarius, special consideration should be made, as Scorpio is lorded by both Mars and Ketu, whilst Aquarius is lorded by both Saturn and Rahu. 3
  1. If both lords are placed in their own sign (Scorpio/Aqua) then the Dasa length is 12 years.
  2. Similarly consider when both placed in the same sign, i.e. count from the lords to the sign.
  3. If one of the lords is placed in the own sign (Scorpio/Aqua), then the Dasa length is
    estimated from the lord placed elsewhere.
  4. If both are placed elsewhere, the stronger of the signs they are posited in must be
    delineated using the given rules for sign strength (refer 2.1.3.1).
  5. If the signs occupied by the lords are of equal strength, the lord contributing more years is
    stronger.

  • Application of strength rules

  1. Initially the stronger of the 4 signs in Kendra to the 1st, 2nd or 3rd from AK (refer 2.1 -
    Sequence, rules and strengths) must be perused. For this purpose the strengths of signs
    must be known (refer 2.1.3.1 - Strength of signs).
  2. Next the stronger sign having being ascertained, one must determine the stronger planet in
    the specific sign (refer 2.1.3.2 - Strength of graha’s).

  • Antar, PratyAntar, etc Dasa’s


The Dasa is divided in 9 equal parts, to find the length of the sub Dasa’s.
The sequence of the sub Dasa’s is the same as the previously ascertained, beginning from the planet lording the Dasa.
