Dr. Shanker Adawal

12.1 Introduction

Part 1

12.1.1 The literal meaning of “Sarvato-Bhadra Chakra” is an auspicious circle which does good to everyone. This chakra consists of 81 squares (nine compartment a side), which looks same from all sides and hence is called “Savato-Bhadra”. This chakra has been referred in ancient classical works like Brihma Yamal Granth, Phal-deepika, Jatak Bharanam and by great astrologers like Garga, Varah Mihir, Mantreshwar & Narpati. The chakra has been compared to a unique lamp which enlightens the humanity.

12.1.2 The Savato-Bhadra Chakra can be used to evaluate transit of planets in a more precise way. It can be used to study problems faced by a native or a nation, to fix an auspicious Muhurat, in horary astrology, or where a person’s birth chart is not available or in mundane astrology for speculating/predicting rise & fall in market prices.

12.2 Composition/ Construction of the Chakra

12.2.1 To prepare Sarvato-Bhadra Chakra, five things are required-

i) The first letter of the native’s name.

ii) The first vowel of the native’s name.

iii) The natal Moon sign of the native.

iv) The birth Nakshtra or the Nakshtra wherein natal Moon is placed.

v) The native’s birth Tithi or lunar date of the birth.

If a native’s date, time & place of birth are known, then the above details can be easily available from the natal horoscope. If natal horoscope is not available or the popular name is different from the name suggested as per birth Nakshtra, then the popular name or the name by which the native respond/ turn around should be taken to determine the above five details using following tables:
