Laghu Parashari Part 2

Chapter 3 Ayurdaya Adhyaya

23. The 8th house from the Ascendant and the 8th from the 8th, i.e. the 3rd are the two houses of longevity. The houses related to death are the 12th from each of these. Thus the 2nd and the 7th are the Maraka houses.

24. Out of these two Marakasthanas (2nd-7th) the 2nd house is more powerful. During the ruling period of the Lords of the 2nd and the 7th, the malefics occupying them or associated with them, the death of the native is possible.

25. If a native, before his birth, has already lived/passed the Dasha periods of the aforesaid Marakas or no malefic is there with the Markesh or occupy these houses, the Lord of the 12th house from the Ascendant during his Dasha period may be expected to inflict death.

26. In the absence of the Dasha period of all or any of these Lords, the Dasha of a benefic planet to the Lord of the 12th house may be stated as responsible for inflicting death. End may also be possible in the Dasha of the Lord of the 8th house.

27. In the absence of the past Marakas the death inflicting agents may be traced to the succeeding Lords who may prove fatal in their major or sub-ruling periods.

28. If Saturn is ill-disposed and related to Maraka planets, he will be the first to inflict death over other plants.

Chapter 4 Dasha Phala Adhyaya

29. All the planets do not give good or bad results according to their Atmabhavanurupa during their own Antar in their own Dasha.

30. Dasha Nath (Lord of the Dasha) gives his own Dashaphal (effects of his Dasha) in the Antar of those planets who are (Sambandha Karta) related to him or are of like nature (the 9th) and give similarphal as that of the Dasha Nath.

31. Those Planets who give results contrary to the Atamasvabhava of the Dasha Nath the effects in their Antar are by adjustment between the two (Lords of the ruling period and those of the sub-period). (An admixture of good and bad effects is seen in the Antar of the Lord of Trishdai during the main ruling period of the Dasha Natu if they are unrelated).

32. The Lord of the angle in his Dasha and the Antar of the Lord of Trine gives good effects if there is mutual relationship between them.
The lord of the Trine in his Dasha and the Antar of the Lord of Trine give good effects if there is mutual relationship between them.
They both give evil effects when there is no mutual relationship between the two.

32. Therefore, in the Dasha of Evil Lord of the Angle and the Antar of the Lord of Trine (if not evil) good results are expected. The word ‘Papakrit’ evil is applicable to the Lords of Angles only in this Shloka.

33. If a Raja Yoga is operative in the Sub-period of a Yogakaraka but Maraka planet, it improves the effect of such a Yoga. In the same way the sub-period of a malefic promotes the results.

34. Also in the ruling period of the Yoga-Karaka planet gives good results in his sub-period of benefic planets who may not be related, he gives immediate effects depending upon his strength.

35. In some cases the Yoga Karaka planet gives good results in his sub-period during the main ruling period of a benefic related to him.
36. Rahu-Ketu, if posited in a Trine or Angle and are not related to any other planet, give good results during their main ruling period and in the sub-period of a Yoga Karaka.

Chapter 5 Misraka Adhyaya

37. During the Maha Dasha of malefic planets the results are invariably unfavourable in the Antar of unrelated benefics; these results are mixed (both good and bad) in the Antar of related benefics and these results are specially bad in the Antar of unrelated Yoga Karakas.

38. If the Dasha Nath are malefics then the Antar of their unrelated benefics always gives evil effects; the Antar of their related benefics gives mixed effects and that of their unrelated Yoga Karakas gives very bad effects.

39. Death inflicting planet does not become a killer during his main ruling period and the sub-period of related benefics. Rather, he becomes a Maraka during the period of unrelated malefics.

40. During the sub-period of Saturn in the main ruling period of Venus, Saturn enhances the result of Venus, so is the case during the sub-period of Venus in the main ruling period of Saturn. In other words the sub-period Lord enacts like the main ruling period Lord.

41. If the lord of the Ascendant and that of the 10th mutually exchange places, i.e., the Lord of the Ascendant is posited in the 10th and that of the 10th in the Ascendant then they form a Raja Yoga. They signify position, power and reputation.

42. In the same way if the Lord of the 9th and that of the 10th mutually exchange places, i.e., they are posited in each others house, they then form a Raja Yoga and such a native is blessed with name, fame and power.
