Dasas (major periods) of planets and their effects
Dasas Major Periods and their effects – Vedic Astrology Lessons
3. Now is described the method of finding the remainder of the dasa of
planet at the time of birth. Find out the nakshatra in which the Moon is posited at
birth and for how many ghatikas it will remain after birth in that nakshatra.
Multiply those ghatikas by the total period of the dasa and divide it by 60. The
quotient will represent the period in years still to elapse. Any remainder remaining
may be converted into months by multiplying by 30 and dividing by 60 and so on.
Notes — This is clarified below by an example. Suppose at the time of birth
20 ghatikas were still to elapse in Punarvasu nakshatra. Birth in Punarvasu means
that the dasa in operation would be of Jupiter. How much of Jupiter remains at the
time of birth.
20*16/60 = 16/3 = 5 years 4 months.
