41. The planets who in the course ot their transits pass through signs containing more benefic dots (Bindhus) in the Ashtakavarga, always produce good effects, even when such signs happen to be the 6th, 8th or 12th. Effects of Latta and Sarvatobhadra
42-44. In finding out the transit effects at any particular time-
(a) The 12th nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by the Sun,
(b) the 3rd nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by Mars,
(c) the 6th nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by Jupiter, and
(d) the 8th nakshatra from that occupied by Saturn, are called lattas.
(a) the 5th nakshatra from that occupied by Venus,
(b) the 7th from that occupied by Mercury,
(c) the 8th from that occupied by Rahu, and
(d) the 22nd from that occupied by the Moon
are called Prushtalatta or rear lattas. If when thus counting the Janma Nakshatra happens to come as the Latta star, the native will suffer from illness and mental anxiety.
45-46. During the Sun’s Latta there will be financial loss in every venture. There will be grief and unhappiness during the Latta of Rahu. There will be death of the native, destruction of kinsmen and fear during the Latta of Jupiter. Quarrels will take place during the Latta of Venus. Loss of position may be expected during the Latta of Mercury. The native will suffer excessive financial loss during the Latta of the Moon.
47. When two or more Lattas synchromise, the total effects will proportionately increase in intensity being twice or thrice. Only evil effects may be expected as the outcome of such combination.
48. The Vedhas pronounced as auspicious in the Sarvatobhadra Chakra bring happiness while those declared as evil produce only misery. This should also be taken into account while essessing the, transit effects of a planet.
Notes— Mantreshwara makes of the Lattas and Sarvatobhadra Chakra as both having a bearing on the Vedhas.
The Lattas are of two kinds
(1) Forward or puro Lattas and (2) Rear or Prishta Lattas. The Lattas of the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn belong to the former clan. The rest belong to the latter.
Thus, if the Sun should occupy at any time, say the nakshatra Moola, his Latta nakshatra (which is the 12th from Moola) will be krittika. Suppose at that time Venus occupies Sravana, his Latta nakshatra which is the 5th from Sravana will be Jyestha, the counting in this case being made from Sravana in the reverse order as Venus is a Prishta Latta.
