a) Kala seems not to double the moons value in Paksha Bala calculation as is suggested by different authors (Deepak Kapor in "Astronomy and mathematical astrology", B. V. Raman in "Graha and Bhava Balas" and also in the Santhanam Translation of BPHS (however its not mentioned in the girish chand sharma translation of BPHS).
b) same holds true for suns ayana value. - What is the reason for this?
c) I try to figure out DrigBala calculation in SB with the above books compared to kala. So far I can comprehend kalas planetary aspects value table in respect to dristhi kendra, dristhi value and vishesha dristhi (which kala calculates mathematically correct instead of the thumb rules the above mentioned books use - I am aware of that) and also papa and shubha dristhi, which finally gives drishti pinda.
but then I am lost. None of the suggested methods gives the results in kala. Deepak Kapoor and B. V. Raman suggest to use 1/4 of dristhi pinda. BPHS suggests to reduce one fourth of the dristhi pinda if a planet has malefic aspects or add 1/4 in the case of benefic aspects and super add the entire aspects of Me and Ju. Which way goes Kala?
BPHS does not state to double the paksha bala. That is just what the translator adds in his commentary. Sri pati does also not double the paksha bala. I don't remember the reason its its been over 20 years now since i have thought about it but some people think you need to double it. The reason was based on some error. But think about it why would we double those?
For drig bala reduce one fourth of the dristhi pinda if a planet has malefic aspects or add 1/4 in the case of benefic aspects and add the entire aspects of Me and Ju.
@ChristianK I remembered this morning why some people double moon paksha bala. THe moon's paksha bala is also its chestha bala, so it is used twice, once for paksha bala, once for cheshta bala, so some texts say, double the moon's paksha bala, but if so, you don't do the chestha bala again ,because that would be doing it three times.
for the sun, the Sun's ayana bala is its cheshta bala, so you double the ayana bala in effect, though not as ayana bala, once as ayana bala and once as chestha bala.
Some people dont understand that and so end up taking paksha bala three times for moon and ayana bala three times for sun.
Thank you very much! makes sense!
