Mahāṛṣi Parāśara speaks of the dasa avatāra at the beginning of the work Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra and dedicated a whole chapter titled avatārakathana adhyāyaḥ to the study of the incarnations (avatāra) of Viṣṇu. Of the list of eleven avatāra, Parāśara omits Balarāma as, strictly speaking, Balarāma is an incarnation of Vāsuki, the divine serpent guardian of Viṣṇu.

Riṣṭa is not just restricted to the native. It extends to mother, especially at the time of delivery, to siblings and parents and elders. Parashara teaches us various principles in the combinations to determine the evils for parents. Of particular interest is the durmantra combination in the previous lesson where the afflicted Moon in the 5th house can cause death of mother instead of the native because it is not in 1,7,3 or 9 houses. In the 5th house it is maraka (2H) from the 4th bhava showing the mother.
We learn three important principles

Morning shows the day …that’s the basis of the Sūtikā Adhyāya of Parāśara. The detailed circumstances around the birth of the child speaks volumes about the destiny and blessings (or otherwise) that surround the birth of the child. With modern lighting systems, it may not be possible to make use of things like “direction of the lamp”, but then there are many other factors like number of people in the birthing chamber signified by the “planets reckoned from Lagna to the Moon”. For example, the Moon in Taurus Lagna, slightly ahead of the Lagna longitude, does indicate the birth

The word horā is derived from aho-rātra by removing the first (a) and last (tra) syllables. The word aho means day and rātra means night thereby referring to the division of the day into the two parts of day and night. The day is lorded by the Sun and the night is lorded by the Moon, being the most brilliant luminaries in the sky at these times. Consider the seven
planets having physical bodies (i.e. from the Sun to Saturn) that lord over the weekdays. If the luminaries (Sun & Moon) are represented by the word horā in aho-rātra, then

Viśeṣa lagna are enumerated by Maharṣi Parāśara and we start with understanding the meaning of the word ‘viśeṣa’ which means special, having a peculiarity. These viśeṣa lagna are different from the lagna in that they have a completely circular motion at uniform speed. It is the speed, relative to the average speed of the lagna that determines the bhāva they map to. For example, the Lagna moves 12 signs in 24 hours of the day and its ‘average speed’ is 2 hours per sign. The Bhāva Lagna (BL) has this exact uniform speed of 2 hours per sign. Therefore

A Nakṣatra or lunar mansion is one of the 27/28 divisions of the sky, identified by the prominent star(s) in them, used in Vedic astrology. Historical (medieval) Hindu astrology enumerated either 27 or 28 nakṣatras depending on the system of usage. It is generally always 27 unless sarvatobhadra or such chakra is being used. Each nakṣatra is divided into quarters or padas of 3°20’. Since everything originates from sound, these pada which form

We have a certain vision for the students of PJC Year-1 which needs to be completed with their mentor. You will notice under Members >> PJC Year-1 >> Śubhārambha that there are 15 lessons including some slide presentations.
