Dr. Shanker Adawal

2.4 Brahma Yoga: When Jupiter and Venus are in Kendra from lords of 9th and 11th respectively, while Mercury is in Kendra from lord of either lagna or 10th house, this yoga is formed. Here again the exact strength of yoga forming benefics rests to a large extent upon a number of other horoscopic factors. This Yoga may not be possible in respect of Aries, Cancer, or Virgo lagna. A native with such a yoga, will be healthy, wealthy, highly learned, popular, long-lived, charitable, respected by Brahmins and always inclined to do good deeds. For illustration, please refer chart No. 8 of Dr. B. V. Raman.

2.5 Budha Yoga: For this yoga, Jupiter should be in lagna, the Moon in a Kendra from lagna, Rahu in 2nd from the Moon and Sun & Mars in the 3rd from Rahu (or in 4th from Moon). This yoga comprises of two parts, firstly a Gajkesari yoga and secondly the position of Rahu, Sun and Mars with reference to the Moon. However there is no mention of the position of Mercury in this yoga. This yoga confers on a native kingly comforts, power, fame, aristocracy, intelligence, talents in sciences, and well versed in scriptures.

2.6 Budha-Aditya Yoga: When Mercury joins the Sun, with neither of them debilitated, the combination is called Budha-aditya or Nipun yoga. Normally any planet when conjunct with Sun, gets combust and loses its power to do good. Perhaps Mercury is an exception as it is never away from Sun by more than 28 degrees longitude, and secondly it is the crown Prince in royal celestial group. This combination is quite common, so it should be analyzed. This combination is quite common, so it should be analyzed judiciously e.g. see how far this yoga improves/ deteriorates in Navamsha. This yoga confers on the native high intelligence, scientific bent of mind, skill in all works, sweet-tongue, cleverness, high reputation and good virtues. Generally it does not give wealth except when in 1st & 4th house. Mercury when conjunct but behind Sun, gives high power & capacity for concentration, makes one learned, fortunate and have luxuries; but when just ahead, makes one a scholar but does not give much wealth and sufficient reasoning power. In 2nd house it gives literary talent, oratorical ability, and unexpected wealth. In 5th house, it confers creative talents, self-expression, success and prosperity. In 10th house, it gives world wide fame and all material comforts. However, as per Saravali, in 7th, 8th, 9th & 12th houses, it does not give good results.

The native was the greatest scientist of modern India. The native had Budha-aditya yoga in lagna. The Sun in identical degrees as lagna, gave him special knowledge and honours in Physics. The 2-7th lord Mars associated with 10th lord Moon, aspected 10th houseand Saturn-Rahu therein. The 8th lord Venus associated with Jupiter aspected 8th house. This made him a great scientist and successful in inventions. The dasha of Rahu brought many glories to him. In 1929, he received knighthood and in the following year, 1930, Noble prize for Physics for discovery known as “Raman effect”. Later, he established a research institute at Bangalore in 1934.

2.7 Buddhi-Chaturya/ Teevra-Buddhi Yoga: This yoga is formed if the 5th lord is posited in a Kendra/ Trikone and 5th house is related with Jupiter; or exalted 5th lord aspect 5th, while 5th house is hemmed between benefics. A native with such a yoga, is intelligent, wise & shrewd and is very successful in his profession.

2.8 Chandra-Buddha Yoga: This yoga is formed when a waxing Moon joins unafflicted Mercury in one of the good houses related with education. It gives a native an active mind, highly developed intellect, a retentive memory, full of common sense, quick witted and diverse virtues. However both these planets are highly susceptible to affliction. If afflicted, it gives scornful, hyper-sensitive, erratic, nervous debility, feeling of guilt, insecurity, suspicion and makes one a complex ridden person.

2.9 Creative Genius Yoga: This yoga is formed when all the three Trikones/lords are inter-connected. If 10th lord is associated with any Trikone lord, still better results are conferred. Such a native is a creative genius in any or more branches of art, kind hearted, wealthy and respected gentleman.

The native is a true genius of art. He had 9th lord Jupiter associated with 10th lord Saturn, aspecting lagna from 5th house. The lagna had exalted 5th lord Sun, with Mercury (Budha-aditya yoga) & 2nd lord Venus. Lagna lord Mars aspected 5th house. Then there is Gajkesari yoga in 5-11 axis and an exchange of 1st & 2nd lord. The native had multi-facet expertise in painting, story writing and cinema. His 1st picture, `pather-pancholi’ was a hit. Thereafter he made 34 more films in Bengali and in Hindi. He got `Padma Shree’, “Padma Bhushan” and Bharat Ratna” awards in 1958, 1965 & 1992. In 1967, he got “Magasthese Award” as well.

2.10 Gandharva Yoga: If 10th lord is in a Kama Trikone (3, 7, or 11th) house, lords of lagna & Jupiter are together, Sun is exalted and the Moon is in 9th house, this Yoga is formed. This is a rather rare yoga and in its fullness, it is very uncommon. This yoga makes a native achieve unparalleled skill in fine arts, will be healthy, pleasure-loving, famous, and may live upto 68 years. If any of the conditions is not met, the native may take interest in fine arts but may not be fully adept.

2.11 Khadaga Yoga: This Yoga is formed if there is an exchange of lords of 2nd & 9th houses and Lagna lord occupies a Kendra/ Trikone house. This is a very auspicious yoga. Such a native is immersed in study of scriptures, wise, skilled, dignified, wealthy, famous, and grateful to others. In chart No. 11 of Ms Annie Beasant, Mars as lord of 2nd & 9th house is in 2nd house, lagna lord Jupiter is in 4th with Moon, and Sun, Mercury & Venus I 7th house; thus almost fulfilling the conditions of the yoga.

2.12 Maha Vigyan Yoga: This yoga is formed if 3rd and 8th lord are strong and in a strong house, maha vigyan yoga is formed. Such a native does deep research and brings out discoveries and inventions.

The native had 3rd lord Sun and 8-9th lord Saturn conjoined in 10th house of Karma and eminence (in mystic Pisces) along with lagna lord Mercury & 5th lord Venus. None of the planets are combust. Moreover 11th lord Mars is exalted in 8th house of research & concentration and aspect 11th and 2nd houses denoting strong Dhanyoga. Exalted Venus along with three others made him a creative genius. 10th lord Jupiter had exchanged house with 9th lord Saturn. Debilitated Moon in 6th house caused Rajyoga and gave him Noble Prize in 1921 during Moon dasha.

2.12 Naga Yoga: This yoga is formed when Navamsha lord of 10th lord is in 10th house associated with lagna lord. A native born in this yoga will be learned, having good education, wealthy, polite, and receiving state honours.
