Preferred Year Length for Nakshatra Dasas?
Hi Ernst, what is your current preferred year length for Nakshatra Dasas?
Would it be the Saura/Solar year or the Nakshatra year?
I have been using Saura.
The year length and the nakshatra calculation both affect the dasa. So one can only say with this nakshatra calcultion this year works better. But yes, with DHruva galactic center ayanamsa with equatorial nakshatras I had better luck with saura year. I had good luck with nakshatra years, but when it came to longevity, sauru worked better.
Hi Ernst, Hi Scott,
by chance I was thinking about this as well and like to throw in my ideas:
Vimshottari is based on the moon's nakshatra position at the birth as we all know. So its heavy related to the moon and the stars. the sun does not play a role here.
It takes the moon about 27,321662 days to return excactly to his janma nakshatra position (sidereal month). So if we take a year as 12 months, the moon-year would be 327,8599 days. shouldn't we use this as length for the nakshatra year?
Savana (Sun travels approx. 1° per day so 360 days), Saura (mean tropical year 365,24219 days), mean sidereal year(365,256364 days) are related to the sun and her movement around the 360° of the zodiac.
so why do we throw the sun into the vimshottari dasa year length calculation? where is the source for that in the scriptures or the logic behind?
good moments to everyone
PS: It would really be great, if Kala would have an option to customize the nakshatra year length to test out weird ideas like this.....
