Tajika Dashas


1. Introduction


The timing of events depends upon the transit or dasha system, in which planets are assigned a certain period of time. During this assigned period, the planets exert their influence and cause certain events occurring in the life of a native in accordance with changing operational periods of the dashas. This is the most outstanding feature of the oriental astrology in its application in timing of events. Various dashas have been discussed in respect of natal astrology. However Tajika authors have discussed only three types of dashas viz., Vimshotri Mudda dasdha, Yogini Mudda dasha and Patyayini (or Patyamsha) dasha. Out of these, first two are based on birth Nakshtra and the third on each planet including lagna.



2. Vimshotri Mudda Dasha or Mudda Dasha


Calculation of the dasha is done in following stepsA:



1. Add to the completed year of life, the number of Moon’s Nakshtra at birth, subtract two from the total, and divide the sum by nine. Ignore the quotient, the remainder number will give the dasha counted from Sun, from the commencement of the annual year in question. The deduction of two from the sum total is done to have the counting of dasha from Sun, eliminating Ashwani & Bharini Nakshtra of Ketu and Venus in the beginning. For example, let us take the birth chart and annual chart for 41st year in respect of Rajiv Gandhi as given at charts 19 & 20 above.

Completed year is 40 and the number of Nakshtra of Moon at birth, Poorva-falguni is 11. Therefore:



(40+11-2)/ 9 or 49/9 or

We get quotient 5 and remainder 4.



Remainder 4 means that the dasha operating at the time of commencement of the year starting from Sun will be of Rahu. The subsequent dasha to follow will be Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars and Rahu.



2. Duration of the Dasha: The dasha period of each planet is fixed and is given by number of years allotted to each planet in Vimshotri dasha X3 (360/ 120) Thus in an annual chart, the duration of various periods will be Sun 18 (6x3), Moon 30 (10x3), Mars 21 (7x3), Rahu 54 (18x3), Jupiter 48 (16x3), Saturn 57 (19x3), Mercury 51 (17x3), Ketu 21 (7x3), and Venus 60 (20x3) days respectively. This give a total of 360 days only. When 360 days are taken to represent a year, they represent 360 “solar days”, each of which would indicate the movement of Sun by one degree. The duration of such a solar day would be slightly more than our normal day of 24 hours. One should accurately spread the 360 days of the Tajika dashas over 365 days of the year by proportionately increasing the dasdha period.



3. Working out the balance of dasha: For this purpose, find out the exact Longitude of the Moon at the time of birth. This gives the Nakshtra at the time of birth as well as the extent of Nakshtra traversed by the Moon. The extent of Nakshtra yet to be traversed will give the balance of dasha at the time of Varshpravesh. In example chart 11, the longitude of the Moon at birth is 4-17-8’. The Moon is in Nakshtra Poorva-falguni, which spread from 4-13-20’ to 4-26-40’. This means that in this Nakshtra, Moon has traversed 3-48’ and the remaining period to be traversed is 9-32’ In sub-para 1 & 2 above, we see that operating dasha at the commencement of the year is Rahu and the period of Rahu dasha is 54 days. Therefore the balance of dasha will be (54 x 9-32’)/ 13-20’ = 38;61 days or 1 month 8.61 (or say 9) days. The remaining dasha of Rahu of 15 days will be towards the end of year after dasha of Mars. The dasha periods for the native of chart 11 & 12, for his 41st year starting w.e.f. 20 Aug 1984 will be as under:
