It gives approximate assessment of positive strength of planets as under:

It gives approximate assessment of positive strength of planets as under:

i) If the planet is a benefic lord: + 1 unit

ii) If the planet is with a benefic lord: + 1 unit

iii) If the planet is receiving the aspect of a benefic lord: + 1 unit

iv) If the planet is in exaltation or Mool-Trikone sign: + 1 unit

A negative unit of strength are contributed thus:

i) If the planet is a malefic lord: - 1 unit

ii) If the planet is with a malefic lord: - 1 unit

iii) If the planet is receiving the aspect of a malefic lord: - 1 unit

iv) If the planet is in debilitation or in inimical sign: - 1 unit

If the positive units predominate, the Yoga causing planet will confer predominantly beneficial results in respect of a beneficial yoga; and no evil results will be given by him in respect of a beneficial yoga, if the negative units predominates. Out of the two planets causing a Yoga, the planet whose inherent strength is more will fulfil the larger part of the indications of the yoga in his dasha, while the planet whose Shadbala strength is less will fulfil his part as a sub-lord to a lesser extent. The nature of the results which the yoga occurs or to which the nature of the house in which the yoga occurs or to which the yoga has reference and the extent of the results depends upon the residential strength of the yoga causing planets.

11. Conclusion
The term “Yoga” in astrology means a specific planetary disposition which is capable of yielding specific results. Such a planetary disposition has in it an inherent linkage which justify the term “yoga” for it. A Yoga may be formed among more than one planet or planets and signs or houses. The results of any yoga depends mainly on the nature & strength of planets and houses which forms the Yoga. Therefore it is essential to understand the nature & strength of these two. There are various methods of assess the strength of Yoga causing planets as mentioned above, but the one seen through Shadbala is more prominent in North India and through Ashtak-varga & Divisional charts in South India.
