In this yoga, if Moon is aspected by Jupiter, Gauri Yoga is formed. It further denotes that the native belongs to a respectable family and has good progeny.

The native is elder son of Sh Dhirubhai Ambani, and is one of the richest industrialist of the world.

The readers may study various combinations and their significations for themselves.

The natie is an IAS officer. In his chart Venus is in 11th house, Jupiter I sin 9th from Venus (in 7th), and Moon is in 9th from Jupiter, Whereas Sun is in Kendra (12th house) from Moon. This has conferred Marud yoga on the native. However as lagna is in Rahu-Ketu axis, native had to suffer the humiliation of a scam towards the end of his service.

7.20 Matru-Mooldhan Yoga: If 2nd lord is conjunct with or aspected by the 4th lord in a Kendra/Trikone, this yoga is formed. Such a native gets wealth through mother or maternal relations. The wealth/ source of earning could vary as per the nature of the 4th lord. Thus if 4th lord is Mars, agriculture may be the source.

He rose very high in dasha of Jupiter, Saturn & Mercury from 1945 onwards. During this Period, he has been a senior congressman as chief minister of Himachal Pradesh and union cabinet minister. However Mercury being debilitated in Navamsha, caused his downfall at the end of Mercury dasha.

7.23 Putra-Mooldhan Yoga: If strong 2nd lord conjoins 5th lord/ Jupiter and lagna lord is very strong in most Vargas, this yoga is formed. The native gets wealth through his sons or after the birth of his son or through joint venture with his son.

The native will never be dependant on others, and will always have plenty of wealth and prosperity. This yoga is primarily for wealth. If the benefics are in exaltation, the yoga becomes extremely powerful. Since the benefic planets are only three, all the four Upchaya houses can never be occupied. Malefics could be placed in 6th or 11th house to give good results.

The native was a great industrialist of India.

8. Summary
8.1 There are many Dhan yogas described in classics. Almost every native has some Dhan yoga is his chart. However wealth & prosperity of a native is ascertained by number of Dhan yogas, the strength of planets (in Shadbala & Vargas) forming Dhan yogas and their position in Navamsha (where their strength & number should be retained or improved).

8.2 In this chapter a total of 148 Dhanyogas and role of Indu lagna have been discussed. However in order to maintain brevity only 19 illustrative charts have been discussed to bring out the relevant points.
