Ascertain the relevant
mnemonically syllable (out of the 9 syllables) composing a formulae whose
Sub-period is wanted and find out the owner of the sign indicated by that
syllable. Multiply the number of years assigned to this Planet by the numbers
of years fixed for the planet whose Mahadasa is under consideration and divide
the product by the total number of years constituting the entire Ayu (age) of
the formula or Chakra. The quotient in years etc, will represent the sub-period
required.

The total number of years
denoted by the sum of the nine mnemonically syllables of any formula represents
the number in years of Parma Ayu for that formula. Accordingly, the Parma Ayu
in years for the Amsa of the 12 signs (12 Rasi amsa) counted from Aries in an
Apsavya Chakra will be 100, 85, 83 and 86 repeated thrice while those for the
Amsa of the 12 signs (Rasi amsa) counted from Scorpio in a Savya Chakra will be
same but in the reverse order, i.e., 86, 83, 85 and 100 repeated thrice.

Whatever effects in
respect to the several Major periods are stated, the same should be applied.

**i)
**Asvini,
Bharani, Krittika – the three constellations have 12 quarters (Pada).

**a)
**Aries,
Taurus, Gemini, Cancer – the four navamsa constitute the four quarters of
Asvini.

**b)**
Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio – the four Navamsa are in Bharani.

**c)**
Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces fall in Krittika, this way divide the
three constellations into these 12 navamsa.

**ii)**
From Rohini the three constellations are Rohini, Mrigasiras, Ardra – these
three have 12 navamsa.

Counting them in the
reverse order from Scorpio – i.e. Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Leo, Cancer, Gemini,
Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius divide them in 12
navamsa. Rohini first quarter will be
Scorpio, second quarter will be Libra and so on. In this order Ardra fourth
quarter will be Sagittarius Navamsa.

In the manner mentioned
above in (i) the order of counting is kept for the constellations of Punarvasu,
Pusya, Aslesa and the order in (ii) should be adhered for Magha, Purba
Phalguni, Uttaraphalguni, again the order of (i) is followed for Hasta, Chitra,
Svati and (ii) is followed for Visakha, Anuradha, Jyestha; the same order used
in (i) is kept for Mula, Purvasadha, Uttarasadha and the order used in (ii) is
followed for Sravana, Dhanistha and Satabhisaj and the same order used in (i)
above be kept for Purba bhadrapada, Uttar bhadrapada and Revati.

The years of a sign is the
same as the years of its lord.

Sun has 5 years (the sign
of Sun is Leo – therefore the period of Leo is of 5 years.

Moon has 21 years (Cancer
is ruled by Moon and so the period of Cancer will be of 21 years).

The Years of other
planets, which are also of their signs, are given below:-

Mars-Aries-Scorpio 7 years
for each

Mercury-Gemini-Virgo 9
years for each

Jupiter-Sagittarius-Pisces
10 years for each

Venus-Taurus-Libra 16
years for each

Saturn-Capricorn-Aquarius
4 years for each

The rule is to predict the
effect of the periods of signs in Kalachakra Dasa is according to the (i) sign
and (ii) its lord. Therefore in Kalachakra Dasa it is not said that the Dasa is
of Mars or Aries but that the Dasa (period) is of Aries-Mars. In the same
manner of Scorpio-Mars.

The influence and effect
of Mars will be the same in both its signs of Aries and Scorpio but suppose
Mars is in Aries and Jupiter etc. benefic planets are also placed in Aries; and
in Scorpio, Saturn, Rahu etc. malefic planets are in position that the period
of Aries-Mars will be good. But Scorpio-Mars will show ill effects.

**1.**
Now let us know how the calculations are made, according to the proportion of
the Padas of a Nakshatra. The number of Asvini etc., whichever may be the past
Nakshatras, should be divided by 3. Thereafter the remainder should be
multiplied by 4. To the figure so made available, the Pad of the present
Nakshatra should be added. The product will be the Navamsa sign from Aries
onwards.

**2.**
The number of years (Poorna Ayu) are, as under. For the Amsa in Aries 100
years, in Taurus 85 years, in Gemini 83 years, in Cancer 86 years. The number
of years will be the same for Signs, situated the 5^{th} and 9^{th}
to them.

**3.**
Multiply the past Ghatis, Pala etc. of the Pad of the Nakshatra, in which a
person is born, by the existing Dasa years and divide it by 15. The result will
indicate the expired period of the Dasa in years, months etc. By deducting it
from the total number of years allotted, we get the balance of Dasa at birth.
The Dasa should be taken, as commencing from that Sign.

**4.**
Multiply the past Ghatis, Pala etc. of the present Pad of the Nakshatra by the
number of years and divide the product by the fourth part of Bhabhog. The years
etc. so obtained may then be deducted from the total Dasa period. The result
will be the balance of Dasa at birth in years, months etc.

**5.**
The past Kala (minutes) of the Navamsa, in which Moon may be placed, should be
multiplied by the years, allotted to the Dasa and the product should be divided
by 200. The resulting years etc., will be the expired portion of the Dasa. By
deducting them from the total number of years the balance of the Dasa at birth
is obtained.

**6.** In
the Savya Chakra the first Amsa is called Deha and the last Jiva. The reverse
is the pattern in the Apsavya Chakra. Therefore the calculations should be
based on the Deha etc., in the Savya Chakra, and the basis is Jiva etc., in
Apsavya chart.
