4. Drekkana Bala: The Drekkana lords in Tajika for computing Panch Vargiya Bala are different from those in Parashari system (see Table below). Here the lord of 1st Drekkana in Aries is Mars. The lords of Drekkana in successive signs are the planets that fall in regular order from Mars onwards i.e. Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. Begin with 2nd Drekkana of Aries with Sun and continues till 3rd Drekkana of Pisces again as Mars. In a Varshphal, a planet in own Drekkana gets 10 units of Bala, in a friendly Drekkana 7.5 units of Bala, in neutral Drekkana 5.00 units of Bala, and in inimical Drekkana only 2.5 units of Bala.

6. Computing & Use of Panch-Vargiya Bala: The five fold strength of each planet is calculated in tabulated in the form of a chart. The strength of planets in the Panch-vargiya Bala is expressed in units called the Vishwa bala (V.B.). The total units of Bala acquired by a planet is the five sources is totaled and then divided by four (4) to get what is known as Viswa Bala (V.B.).

It is customary to express Panch- Vargiya or Viswa Bawla as decimal fractions. The interpretation of strength of a planet  based on Panch-Vargiya Bala is made as under:

(a) If V.B. is more than 15- Planet is Parakrami (Extraordinarily strong).

(b) If V.B. is 10 to 15 units- Planet is Poorna Bali (Fully strong).

(c) If V.B. 5-10 to 10 units- Planet is Madhya-Bali (of medium strength).

(d) If V.B. is less than 5 units- Planet Nirbali (Weak).

While using this Bala in deciding Varshesh or Lord of the year, the relative numerical strength of planets with in a particular group is taken into consideration. The strength of a planet also influences the results when the planet is Dasdha lord. The Dasdha effects have been discussed in a subsequent chapter.
