Hi Ernst, all,

usually we don't think about it and take moon's nakshatra and its ruler as starting point for VS-dasa. but in jataka parijata it says:

Chapter XVIII Dasas, Sloka 33 "Note down these four stars: viz. (1) the one occupied by the Lagna; (2) that occupied by the moon; (3) that indicated by the name of the person concerned; and (4) that occupied by the Moon at the time of query. Ascertain which of these is strongest. Starting with the dasa of the lord of this predominant star and following the order of the nakshatra dasas, astrologers of eminence announce the good or evil falling to the lot of the person concerned".

and further: Sloka 34: "if the Rasi containing the Utpanna nakshatra [= 5th from Janmaksha] be stronger than any referred to in the preceding sloka, it is quite possible that the person about whom divination is to be made, may get the fruits of all the dasas of his life calculated from the Utpanna nakshatra as the starting point [...]"

Did anybody check this out and can give some feedbacks and experiences?

I have never had that work any better than just vimshottari from the moon. I think some astrologers tried to find ways to make vimshottari dasa work better as they were struggling with it working as well as they wanted probably due to incorrect ayanamsa and or zodiac.

Hi Ernst,

thank you. please allow another question in regard to this topic:

Shankar Adawal states in his book "Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Dasa Systems" to start with Adra Nakshatra (instead of Krittika), if the moon is waxing and the ascendent in sun Hora or the moon waning and ascendent in moon hora. 

Do have any experiences with that?

Is it possible in Kala to get calculation options to check this out?

best!

I have not tried that. You will have to create a custom ayanamsa to fake that calculation.

and how am I gonna do that?

kaala jataka table gives the ayanamsa used for the birthtime, right? so I guess, I take this point as reference date and subtract from the given ayanamsa 3*13°20' (=40°). is this correct? does kala deal with negative values here or do I have to add 360° for negative values?

thanks! christian
