Various Dasas of Planets Part 2

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Part 2

The Vimsottari Dasa has two versions:-

If the native was born in Sukla Paksha (bright half) with the ascendant in the Hora of Sun or in Krishna Paksha (dark half) with the ascendant in the Hora of Moon, Dasa should start from Ardra Nakshatra.

In the vice versa case, the Dasa should start from Krittika (as is being done presently), i.e. if the native was born in Krishna Paksha (bright half) with the ascendant in the Hora of Sun or in Sukla Paksha (dark half) with the ascendant in the Hora of Moon, Dasa should start from Krittika Nakshatra.
Nowadays the main reason for predictions not coming true is that the Vimsottari Dasa is calculated from Krittika only.

The Dasa-Phala-Darpan written by Sri Nivas Sharma / (Pathak) son of Mahadeva Pathak of Jatak Tatva has mentioned all these variations in his book. Some other books also mention these points.

Now the important subject of “Dasa” (periods) and Sub-periods of planets and the influence of planets on the native of the horoscope, is dealt here.

According to the theory of the great sages, the maximum period in stellar measure, or Nakshatra Duration, up to which a man could live is 120 years, provided the planets are favourably situated. This maximum period when converted to solar measure or “souramana” works out to 118 years, 2 months and 29 days. The number of years in stellar measure that each of the planets Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus would bestow on man is 6, 10, 7, 18, 16, 19, 17, and 20 years respectively.

In the Vimsottari Das-Starting from Krittika Nakshatra, the Lords of Dasas are Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus in that order.

The process of finding out the period of the planet within which a person was born is easy. Thus, when the Nakshatras from Krittika to the Birth Nakshatra are divided by nine, the remainder will signify the Lord of the commencing Dasa. Counting of stars is in groups of nine. In each group, the 1st and the succeeding stars are governed by Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus respectively.

The period in current, at the time of birth, will be of the planet that governs the constellation that will be ruling at the time of birth. The remaining Dasas will be of the Planets in the order given above.

Similar process is to be followed, when the Dasa is commencing from Ardra nakshatra.

Thus for persons born in the following constellations, Dasa period begins with, is that of the planet noted against them.

The following tables will illustrate the both versions of Vimsottari Dasa.

Note: Dasa Phala Darpan of Srinivash Pathak S/o Sri Mahadev Pathak has mentioned both Krittikadi and Adradi versions of Vimsottari Dasa System.

Having ascertained the period of the particular planet that is in current at the time of birth, the next step will be to find out, what portion of that period remained after birth.

1. To find out the remainder of the Dasa, operating at the time of birth, first find out the expired portion of the Dasa of the concerned Planet. This is done, as follows:-

2. Multiply the Dasa period of the Planet concerned by the period of the stay of Moon in Birth Nakshatra, that has expired and divide that amount by the total period of the stay of Moon in that Nakshatra. The figure are in years, months etc. so arrived at will be the expired period of the Dasa. When this figure is deducted from the total period of the Dasa, we will get the balance of Dasa at the time of birth.


The balance of Dasa at birth can be directly known from the table named as Balance of Vimsottari Dasa by Longitude of Moon (sidereal in any Ephemeris (Indian) or Panchanga or book on Vimsottari Dasa having such tables.
