7. Sanyas/Pravrajya Yoga

This yoga lead to a renunciation or giving up of the material & worldly attachments. The ancient Indian tradition did not lay so much stress on achievements at the material plane as on dissociating one from the temptations of the world. Normally one gets different shades of renunciation in the pursuit of the highest Truth to the lowest ones who indulge in the vilest of deeds in the garb of saintliness. It is not possible to find all parameters of Sanyas in any single native’s chart. Some of the common combinations of Sanyas yoga are as under:

i) When four or more planets with none of them debilitated/ combust, possessed  of strength occupy a single benefic houses, a Sanyasi/ Tapaswi is born. Tapaswi is born. Tapaswi is one who undertakes rigorous/ penance. The nature of Sanyasa depends upon the strongest planet of the group.

ii) When 10th lord gets involved in the four planet combination in a Kendra/ Trikone, native takes to Sanyas and attains emancipation after death.

iii) When mana related parts-4th house, 4th lord and Moon are afflicted by Saturn and lagna is related with 9th lord, a true saint is born.

iv) When Jupiter is in 9th house and Saturn aspects Lagna, Moon & Jupiter, and many Rajyoga are present in the chart, one is like any great saint/ Rishi and well versed in scriptures.

v) When Ketu is Present in 9th/ 12th house aspected by Saturn, Jupiter, 5th & 9th lord (at least two of these), one attains the final Truth.

vi) When the Moon is posited in Navamsha of Mars or Dreshkon of Saturn in 9th house and is aspected by Saturn from 7th house.

vii) When 2nd house/ lord (family ties), 4th house/ lord (home & Mana), and 112th house (enjoyments) are afflicted by separatist planets Sun, Saturn, Rahu & 12th lord, one embraces Sanyas.

viii) When lords of lagna, 4th, 10th, and Mars are in mutual aspect, one becomes a sage.

ix) When 9th and 10th lord are exalted and Jupiter & Saturn occupies Trikones, a great saint is born.

x) When lagna, 9th & 10th houses or lords are aspected by Saturn, and 10th lord is posited in an evil house, one attains spiritual goal.

The native had five exalted planets. The 9th lord Venus was exalted in mystique sign of Jupiter (Pisces). The 10th lord Mars was exalted in 12th house of Moksha. The Lagna- 12th lord Saturn was exalted in 9th house of Dharma. The 10th house of 10th lord is occupied by Saturn itself aspected by Jupiter. Both the luminaries are posited in Lagna in Subha Kartari between exalted 9th and 10th lords. Karaka for renunciation, Saturn and of Moksha, Ketu are exalted in 9th & 10th house respectively. In Navamsha, Moon is in sign of Mars (Aries), aspected by Saturn from Aquarius. All these strong combinations made him an highly evolved soul, who could awake powers of Kundalini (third eye). He was a great devotee of “Ma Kaali”.

9. Tajika Yogas

These have been covered in detail in my book on “Tajika Shastra & Annual Horoscopy”, hence are not being discussed now.

10. Vahan (Conveyance) Yoga

Since ancient times one is keen to have the best, the fastest and the most comfortable conveyances, whether it is animal driven (of olden times) or motor propelled vehicles of the modern age. Sometimes, a native, being a high government official, can have pleasure of conveyance without owning any. The 4th is the primary house and the Venus is the main Karaka for vehicles and Jupiter for aerial crafts (like helicopter/ private jets) and of general happiness. Some of the combinations for this yoga are as under:
i) When lagna lord joins 4th, 9th or 11th house, one gets happiness from vehicles.

ii) When exalted 4th lord is posited in a Kendra/ Trikone.

iii) If Venus joins 4th house, one gets ordinary vehicle; but if Venus/ 4th lord is in 9th/ 11th house, one gets number of good conveyances.

iv) When Moon conjoins 4th lord in 2nd/ 4th house, one is blessed with vehicles.

v) When Jupiter, Moon, and Venus joins 4th lord in Kendras/ Trikones, one is bestowed with good vehicles.

vi) If Jupiter or Venus as 4th lord is posited in 9th house, while 9th lord is in a Kendra/ Trikone, one is blessed with number of vehicles.

vii) Mercury in his exaltation sign, identical with a Kendra/ Trikone confers vehicles.

viii) When lords of 9th, 10th & 11th are posited in 4th house, one gets happiness of vehicles.

ix) When an exalted planet posted in 10th house is aspected by lords of lagna & 9th, one gets happiness of vehicles.

x) When 4th lord with Jupiter/ Venus are posited in lagna.

xi) If Venus is posited in 3rd, 4th, 7th, or 11th house from Moon.

xii) When 4th lord is in 11th house is aspected by Jupiter/ Venus.

xiii) If exalted 12th lord conjoins 2nd lord and is aspected by 9th lord.

The native is a big industrialist of UP and married locally into a big business family with handsome dowry. His 7th lord Mars (debilitation cancelled being in a Kendra from lagna) is digbali in 10th house in Nakshtra of Yogkaraka Saturn, and aspects lagna, 4th & 5th house, making him very amkbitious. His vargottam Jupiter aspects 7th, 9th & 11th house. 4th lord Saturn in 11th house is yogkaraka and aspects lagna and Venus posited therein (causing Malavya Mahapurush Yoga). Thus there is a clear nexus among lagna, 4th, 10th, and 11th houses. He enjoys Gajkesari yoga in 3rd – 12th house. Hence they had beautiful dashas of Jupiter & Saturn. The next dasha of 9th-12th lord exalted Mercury should also be equally rewarding. Both the native and his wife had a hobby of owning and enjoying number of latest luxury fleet of cars.
