Nadi Jyothisha - Jeeva and Sareera
Out of many important factors which have to be taken into consideration and special attention has to be paid for assessing the results of a House or Bhava are Jeeva and Sareera. The soul is named as Jeeva and the body goes by the appellation of Sareera. The Jeeva and the Sareera have to be worked out for every Bhava or House for proper predictions as they are the main planets on whom the results depend to some extent. It may be noted thet the jeeva and Sareera planets should be benefics to the particular native and well posited in the chart apart from benefic aspects etc for good results to flow. One has to consider whether the jeeva and Sareera planets are inimical to each other. Various authors and scholars have divergent views about the Jeeva and the Sareera. They have their own methods to find them out.
According to some Nadi Granthas, the Lagna is the soul and the Chandra Lagna is the Sareera. From these it follows or could be inferred that the Lord of Lagna is the Jeeva Planet and the Sareera Planet is the one which owns the Chandra Rasi. Their Strengths or Weakness is reflected in the results. For predictions Lagna along with Chandra lagna and placement of Planets with reference these Lagnas are examined.
Another view is that the owner of the house where a particular Bhavathipathi is posited is the Jeeva of that Bhava and the Lord of the House in which the Jeeva Planet is situated in the Sareera Planet. For example in a Mesha Lagna Horoscope in which Guru is in Simha and Ravi is in Vrishchika as per the chart 1 given below. The Jeeva planet of 9th house is Ravi and Kuja is the Sareera Planet of the 9th House.
The Lord of the 9th House Guru is in Simha so the Lord of Simha is the Jeeva planet of 9th House. Ravi, the Jeeva planet is in Vrishchika so the Lord of Vrishchika-Kuja is the Sareera planet.
Some scholars arrive at the Jeeva and Sareera Planets by taking into consideration the Karakathwas. The Lord of the house in which the Karakathwa is situated become the jeeva. The relevant House Lord counted from the placement of karakathwa planet become the Sareera Planet. The principle can be elucidated from the following example.
In Chart 2 where the Lagna is Mesha, the Moon, Chandra is in Kanya. One of the Karakathwa of Chandra is Mother. As Chandra is in kanya, its Lord budha becomes the jeeva planet for mother. 4th house represents mother so 4 houses counted from the placement of chandra is Dhanus, the lord of dhanus Guru becomes the Sareera planet for mother.
In the stellar system of astrology, the constellations and their lords are the basis to find out the jeeva and sareera planets of the respective bhavas or houses in a chart. The jeeva planet is the lord of the constellation in which the particular Bhava Lord is posited and the Sareera planet is the Lord of the star in which the Jeeva planet is situated. For example in a Mesha lagna horoscope, when Chandra ( lord of the 4th house ) is in the constellation Uthiradam ( Ravi’s star ) Ravi is termed as the Jeeva Planet for the 4th house. Ravi ( The Jeeva Planet in this case ) is in the constellation Poorattadhi, so the lord of Poorattadhi i.e., guru becomes the Sareera planet for the 4th House.
Ravi’s jeeva planet for 4th house in Guru is the sareera planet for the 4th house. Ravi is in Poorattadhi and Chandra is in Uthiradham. When the jeeva planet joins another strong or powerful planet, the powerful or stronger planet becomes the jeeva planet. In other words the stronger or powerful planet snatches away the right of the other planet. This may happen in the case of Sareera also.The following example will make it clear. See chart 4 where Sukra is exalted in Meena.
Ravi is in Poorattadhi and Sukra in revathi. Chandra is in Uthiradham.
Sukra is the jeeva planet and Budha is the Sareera planet of the 4th house.
In the Chart no 4, Ravi and Sukra are in Meena, on account of the exaltation of Sukra, Ravi does not become the Jeeva Planet though Chandra is in the constellation of Ravi.
In cases where the Bhava lord is in his own constellation, the Bhava Lord himself becomes the jeeva Planet. The Lord of the house in which the Jeeva lord is tenanted is the Sareera planet. For clarity see Chart 5 and explanation thereon.
Chandra in Rohini.
In the Chart 5 Chandra the lord of 4th house is in Rohini ( Chandra’s Constellation ) So Chandra becomes the Jeeva Planet and as Chandra is in Vrishabaha ( owned by Sukra ) Sukra becomes the Sareera Planet for the 4th Bhava or house.
At times the Bhava lord is not only situated in his own constellation but also placed in his own house and in these cases the Jeeva planet itself becomes the Sareera planet. For explanation see chart 6.
Ravi is in Uththiram.
The Lord of 5th Bhava ( Putra Bhava ) Ravi is in the constellation Uththiram which is owned by Ravi himself so he is the Jeeva planet. As Ravi is in his own house simha, he is the sareera planet for the 5th house. In this connection it may be noted that Ravi and guru have one of their constellations in their respective houses.
For good and favourable results to flow, the following point have to be considered along with other factors.
1. The Jeeva and Sareera planets should not be inimical to each other.
2. The Gunas acquired by the Jeeva and Sareera planets should be in consonance with their own gunas.
3. They ( jeeva and Sareera planets ) should be in benefic houses.
4. The respective planets ( Jeeva and Sareera planets ) should not be associated or aspected by their enemies or situated in their enemy’s houses.
5. The situation of Jeeva and Sareera planets in their friendly houses, exaltation houses, own houses and aspects of benefic planets should also be noted.
6. The Jeeva and Sareera Theory as stated above are only extensions of principles in respect of houses applied to the constellations and their lords.
Prediction - Stellar Effects(Stellar Astrology) - Meena 2 System
The Subject Predictive Astrology is one of the most complex parts in Astrology, most astrologers will be able to consider themselves in the subject. Predictive part and Timing of events poses the greatest challenge to an astrologer’s reputation. Now a days it is very difficult to get a Astro Guru who can fairly proficient to part his knowledge to the society and help in interpret the secrets of astrology.
Vaikuntavaasi Sri N V Raghava Chary (Meena 2) had given number of principles and interpretation techniques to arrive at timing of events in his work” Practical Stellar Astrology” (based on Nadi Principles). In his Meena 2 system he had given easy principles which helps an astrologer to foresee results. This article is based on Meena 2 system(Stellar Astrology)-I have taken one principle from his work and want to state here that how important the Stellar Astrology in Prediction.
In cases where friendly and benefic planets aspect each other mutually, when a plant is situated in one of the constellations of the mutually aspecting planets, one can foresee beneficial and auspicious results at appropriate period or periods.
In the above example, the Lagna is Mesha for which Guru is a Yoga Karaka Planet. Guru is in Uthiradam, the constellation belonging to Ravi who is also a Yoga karaka for Mesha Lagna. Chandra is the Lord of 4th House. There is the mutual aspect between Ravi and Chandra who are friends and further the Lords of 5 and 4 are mutually aspecting which is good as a Yoga is formed. As Guru who is in Uthiradam gets the effect of Ravi and Chandra who are also the friends of Guru. Under these circumstances beneficial results will be the outcome.
In cases where friendly and benefic planets aspect each other mutually, when a planet is situated in one of the constellations of the mutually aspecting planets, one can foresee beneficial and auspicious results at appropriate period or periods
Guru is in Uthiram Here the Lagna is Vrichika and Guru is a Yogakaraka for the said Lagna. Guru is in Uthiram. The constellation belongs to Ravi. Ravi is the owner of Simha and he is in the 10 th House. Sani is with Ravi in Simha where Ravi is more powerful than Sani as Ravi owns the house and he is also in the 10th House. There is also enmity between Ravi and Sani. So these examples are choosen to vividly demonstrate the effects and influences. As Guru is situated in the constellation of Ravi, Guru gets the effects of both Ravi and Sani (as they are together). The beneficial results will have an edge over bad results.
It will be noticed in this Chart 2B there is the same combination of Ravi and Sani but it is Kumbha where Sani is stronger than Ravi. So Guru gets more of Thamasic Guna and less of Rajasic Guna. In the previous illustration Guru was more Rajasic than Thamasic. In Chart 2B, the native is likely to feel more of bad results than of Good results or Effects.
In this example (2C) also Guru is posited in Uthiram. The constellation belonging to Ravi. Note the mutual aspect of Ravi-Sani from their own houses. The results or effects are likely to be mixed in nature. The reason is that aspecting planets try to impose their influences on the other.
In this Chart (2D),Ravi is in Uthirattathi (Sani’s Star) and he is also aspected by Sani from his own house. Thus Guru becomes practically a Thamsa, hence there is a likelihood of bad effects and a very minute degree of beneficial results as Guru aspects Sani.
Above illustrated examples will definitely give some indication to every one that stellar effects are very important in prediction. The predictive side of Astrology is very tough as well as thorny, whatever system that is applied or followed for forecasting the events.

Uthirattathi - Uthirabhadra padha
Importance of Astrology
The Astrology has its effect from the ancient days to modern days. There are plenty of astrological views in Vedas meant for knowledge. The subjects depend on the person who understands and reproduces the fact. The study of various methods of astrology is essential for accurate prediction.
In India , the way in which Naksatravidya, the science of stars, has been thought of even in the Vedic literature shows that it was regarded as one of the intellectual attainments. The word Naksatra means star in general as well as an asterism in the zodiacal belt. The star groups or naksatras were referred as Devagraghas. Parts of the body (Kalapurusa) in terms of naksatras has been described, the same has been explained very well in future lessons to come. This will help the students in medical astrology to identify affected parts and to suggest proper remedial measures.
Horasastra or predictive astrology relating to horoscopes of individuals emphasizes that Karma and Punarjanma are powerful determinants of the lives of individuals. The individual has to perform good deeds and lead a pure life so that he can reap the benefits of good deeds and lead a pure life so that he can reap the benefits of good planetary influences in his future birth. Astrology is, there fore, a valuable guide to look up to, in order to have an insight into one's own life, here as well as hereafter. Astrology is not only a good guide but warns the wary about the “weak and broken bridges” on the way..
The Prayacittas or expiratory rites prescribed in the Dharma Sastras suggests that man is no automation in the hands of an inexorable Fate. It is the conviction of great sages and saints that by the self effort coupled with sincere devotion to God and faith in oneself man can rise above the influence of his environments. The twelve signs of the Zodiac represent soul patterns.
The Sun ,atmakaraka and the Moon Manokaraka, these energies or powers will provide the required inner strength to the native.
The acts of creation (srishti), protection (sthithi) and destruction (laya) are embedded in the womb of the all powerful time and this carinations are brought about as a consequence of this subtle power. The Sun by his daily movement s and the change of seasons brings to perfection the embryo in plants and animals and brings about various changes on the earth. The Moon bring nearest to the earth exercises much influences on it and as she wanes and waxes rivers to swell, the tides of the sea rules and plants and animals affected.
The greatest men like Kepler, Pythagoras of the world believed in and practiced some of the basic problems in one's life which can be effectively answered by astrology. The questions like the purpose for which one is born, the profession of the person , his financial status, marital happiness and other problems relating to marriage, wife and children, various tensions and accident proneness, and the question of death and so on can also be answered in astrology. Although knowledge of astrology will help to understand or analysis the mental and physical qualities of any man and the fortunes and misfortunes that wait him and his progress in the world whose actual moment of birth is accurately known or otherwise can be analyzed through the horary or sakuna sastra. There is a proverb to quote” Fools obey planets while wise men control them.”
An intelligent understanding of the stellar science could enable them to transmute their sorrow into equinity, their pleasure into understanding and ambition into benefic influence. Such a goal would however require much deeper knowledge of astrological occultism.
That which is inevitable cannot be altered but many of the unhappy conditions of our life are susceptible to change. As students in the study of astrology they realize that we are here for certain purposes, each in his or her own place according to an orderly to cosmic plan, with opportunities to produce certain results by refining our reactions to planetary influences.
There is not only pleasure but satisfaction and profit as well in the knowledge which astrology provides. Astrology asks only impartial, fair investigation on its merits and when accorded always emerges with the same respect other sciences enjoys.
Any one with ordinary ability can learn much of Astrology. It is no longer a difficult study. With proper instruction and a reasonable amount of effort one can learn to cast a horoscope and read it so that it becomes a guide regarding important affairs of life.
Some say that astrology is n art, some others rejects it as an ideal dream or an illusion. I would like to state here that astrology is a science and that it can render very useful service to one and all and create faith even in the septic, if one studies sincerely this course and Meena2 system.
The art of prediction of timing of events prognosticated by various indications or combinations found in the Birth Chart or Horary Chart. It goes without saying that success in reading charts depends to a considerable extent on the skill of the astrologer and methods applied by him to predict correctly the probable periods of the various events of life indicated by the birth chart or horary chart. There are number of methods available to give prediction, if an astrologer follow a easy and tested method without much of mathematical calculation then he will become very successful and his name and fame will skyrocket.
The primary commitment of an astrologer is to predict the events to the customer. Events are of various types. Nevertheless the typical customer, being immensely curious, pesters the astrologer to know when he can expect good events in his life. However experience of renowned astrologers whom I have association proves that KP formulas are working very well in pin pointing the events in life.
In Stellar astrology, the star is very important and it needs due consideration in prediction. Each star is divided into nine unequal divisions called sub divisions named as SUB and each planet is allotted one sub division in the same proportion and in the same order as per Vimshottari Dasa System.
The Lord of the sub division is called sub lord. In KP System the cusp refers to the beginning of the house. The lord of the sign in which the cusp falls is referred to as Bhava lord or House lord, the lord of the star (constellation) in which the cusp falls as Star lord and the lord of the sub division in which the cusp falls as sub lord. Similarly we will have to analyze for the Planet Sign, Star and Sub lord.
The Sub Lord of the Sub-division in which the cusp falls signifies the result of that House or Bhava more predominantly among the Sign lord, star lord and the sub lord is useful for detailed reading of that Bhava. In Stellar astrology the planet deposited in the particular star gives the results of the lord of the star and acts as an agent. The planet transiting in a sign is the source of the event, the lord of the star in which the planet is transiting signifies the nature of the event according to its nature, occupation and lordship, while at the same time the sub lord decides whether the event is favourable or not according to its nature, occupation and lordship.
The following are the significators of Bhava in the order of strength.: -
1. Planet deposited in the constellation of the occupant of the Bhava (this is the strongest)
2. The occupant of the Bhava.
3. The planet deposited in the constellation of the lord of the Bhava.
4. The lord of the Bhava
5. The planets conjoined with or aspecting the above significators and also the Bhava in question.
How to select fruitful significators?
The selection of correct significators gives accurate prediction. As such, which of the significators are fruitful and which of them are just temptors have to be found out. If many planets become significators, then the selection will have to be made from amongst them either on selective basis or in the order of strength or by elimination basis by eliminating the just temptors or weak significators.
Methods to predict the timing of events: -
An event will materialize during the conjoined period of the Dasa, Bhukthi and Anthara lords who happen to be the common planets derived from the significators and the ruling planets.
Method 1: -
1. While timing the events, when the event is to happen within a few hours, the transit of Lagna is to be considered.
2. If the event is to take place in a few days, Moon's transit will have to considered
3. If the event is to take place within few months, the Sun's transit will have to be taken into account.
4. If the event is to take place in some years, the Jupiter's transit will have to be considered.
Method 2: -
1. The timing of event can be worked out by taking into consideration the cross transit of the Dasa lord, Bhukti lord and Anthara lord who will be within the common planets.
Method 3: -
1. To find the timing of event, the transit of Dasa lord, Bhukthi lord and Anthara lord is to be taken into account.
2. The event materializes whenever the Dasa lord or Bhukthi lord or Anthara lord transits in any of the three sensitive positions viz the star of the Dasa lord to be taken as the star and that of the Bhukthi lord as the sub or vice versa or inter- Dasa, Bhukthi and Anthara lords during that Dasa, Bhukthi and Anthara period.
The above said significators, selection of significators and the methods for finding the timing of events are being discussed in our regular astrological courses /classes being conducted with the guidance of Sri P. V. K. Punneswara Rao at Hyderabad . We had given thousands of accurate predictions by following the above said prediction techniques. Krishnamurthy System of prediction is too simple for precise prediction if you understand the system properly.
Ruling Planets and their Role
“ Prof K.S.K states that during his research had found that several thousand events take place in a day but without the involvement of Ruling Planet not a single event can take place”
The statement of Prof KSK is very powerful because Ruling planets decides the timing of events. To-day we are studying Astrology to know when the events are going to take place. Ruling planets theory is an application theory. We can workout Ruling planets for the natal chart and also for horary charts.
Ruling Planet definition :
Those planets that are ruling at the time of query or at the time birth and can contribute for the fructification of the events are called Ruling Planets.
Ruling Planets Consists of the following:
1. Lagna Sign Lord.
2. Lagna Star Lord
3. Lagna Sub-lLord.
4. Moon Sign Lord
5. Moon Star Lord
6. Moon Sub Lord.
7. Day Lord
Additionally we can take following :
If any of the planets which strongly aspect or conjuct the ruling planets mentined above planets may be added as a ruling planet.
If Rahu or Ketu happens to be a ruling planet then take the Rahu /ketu representations planets also has Ruling planet. Rahu/ Ketu representation, they represent or firstly gives the results of the planet with which it is conjoined, then that of the aspecting planet, then the results of the planets in whose star it is deposited and lastly the results of the Lord of the Sign it is posited.
Principle Involved in selection of the ruling planets
1. The ruling planets at the time of query would be the ruling planets at the time of fructification of the expected results/events.
2. The ruling planets at the time of birth would be ruling planets at the time of query or vice versa.
Here we can take the time of judgement as the time of query.
As the ruling planets have definite bearing over the events it is found that the common planets between the ruling planets and the selected significators will contribute for the fructification of the events.
How to link Ruling planets for Timing of Events?
1) We have to select the houses which are relevant to the query say for marriage 2,7,11 houses, for education 4,9,11 houses, etc.,
2) Identify the strongest significator among the significators.
3) Identify the common planets among the ruling planets.
4) Workout the representations of Rahu and Ketu.
5) If Rahu and Ketu happened to be the strongest significator give maximum importance to them.
An Event will materialise during the conjoined period of the Dasa, Bhukthi and Anthara lords who happen to be the common planets derived from the significators and the ruling planets.
An event can take place during the cross-transit if Dasa lord, Bhukthi Lord and Antara Lord –if they represent common planets.
An event can materialize whenever the Dasa Lord transits any of the three sensitive positions. Say, the star of the Dasa Lord to be taken as the star and that of the Bhukthi lord as the Sub, or vice-versa or inter Dasa,Bhukthi and Antara lords during that Dasa Bhukthi and Anthara periods- if they represent common planets.
If the event to happen within a few hours, the transit of Lagna is to be considered. If the events are to take place in few days then the Transit of Moon has to be considered. If the event is to take place within few months, the Sun's transit have to be considered. If the event is to take place in some years, then the Jupiter's transit will have to be taken into account.
While making the Ruling planets, the KP astrologer should have the strong urge for the purpose it is made and unless the urge for the matter is deep and sincere he should not resort to ruling planets and stated by Prof. KSK.
I strongly suggest that every one should carefully select the ruling planets and use the RP theory for successful prediction since I had used and observed that Ruling Planets never failed in giving accurate timing of events.
Stellar Effects in Astrology - A Study on Digbala
With respects and pranams to Late Sri NV Raghavachary (Meena2), I am elaborating the principles written by him on Digbala in “Practical Stellar Astrology” based on Nadi Princples.
Everyone knew that the lords of the lagna,9th and 10th house are very strong in all aspects and occupy favourable positions, the native becomes very prominent in life and success come to him from all aspects of life. Over and above if they possess Digbala without any flaw, then the native may rule a country or may head a government.
All classical texts states that
Guru and Budha gets dig bala in Lagna Kendra, Chandra and Sukra gets dig bala in fourth house, Rahu and Sani gets dig bala in 7th house, Ravi ,Kuja and ketu gets dig bala in 10th house.
Where as Sri NVR(Meena2) further clarifies and states that a planet need not alone be posited in a house as per classical texts to get dig bala(directional strength), even if they have posited in a different house but having stellar connection or associated with the planets who owns the house that gives dig bala to the planet, is enough for a planet to get dig bala. I would like to clarify further with example charts to the benefit of the readers.
Example chart No:1
Guru and Budha gets dig bala in Lgna Kendra. As per nadi principles even if Guru is posited in a naksatra whose lord is posited in lagna then also Guru gets Dig bala.
Guru is in Uthira naksatra whose lord is Ravi, Ravi is posited in lagna so Guru gets Dig bala.
Example chart No:2
Here Guru is in Ashlesha naksatra whose lord in Budha and Budha is lord of the Lagna so Guru has got connection to Lagnakendra and gets Digbala.
Example chart No:3
Here Guru is in conjunction with Budha and Budha is lord of the Lagna and hence Guru gets Dig bala due to his association with Lagna lord Budha.
Here we will have to understand the basic principles of Stellar astrology that the 1)planets delivers their good or bad effects based on the naksatra they occupy not because they are in uchha or neecha positons in the horoscope 2) Even if the planets posited in neecha rasi delivers good result when possess dig bala. Lot of astrologers may be wondering that the Sukra posited in Uchha rasi(meena) for a native not in a position to enjoy dasa of Sukra, as per nadi principles if Sukra posited in Uthirabhadrabada naksatra whose lord is Sani then the native may not get good results during Sukra dasa.. Here we will have to understand that Uchha status of a planet may not give good results if they are posited in a bad naksatra.
While analyzing the horoscope carefully note the constellation in which the planet is posited and also constellations lord position in the horoscope and observe dig balas of the planets by using the stellar theory to arrive correct and accurate prediction.
