Members on Sohamsa group definitely get furious by the comments passed on by me regarding BPHS and Sri Narasimha’s interpretation of Drig dasa. In fact, most of the list members may be in the view that whatever Sage Jaimini told in his upadesa sutras are also told by Sage Parasara in BPHS. And Sri Sanjay and others also advocated the same point. My Guru Sri Iranganti Rangacharya always tells that to learn Jaimini one must study the Vriddha Karikas. I just reiterated the same on the list. I also pointed out the slokas given by Sri Narasimha are just in toto Vriddha Karika slokas. In fact, I went to the extent of quoting that without Vriddhas, is like Sailing without a compass.
Now in this post, I am going to prove my point once again with the following example.
Now, I am giving below the relevant Vriddha Karika slokas and readers can easily find out what went wrong.
Charaparaayavaddasha à Chara Paryaya + vat + dasha à Like Chara Paryaya dasa.
So, BPHS sloka asks us to start this dasa like chara paryaya dasa, but Sri Sanjay interprets that dasa is same as Chara dasa. Refer to his translation quoted above. Do you see the difference? The dasa should be like Chara paryaya dasa, not Chara dasa.
Don’t you see that some lines in between are missing in the slokas of BPHS? The missing lines are the ones that differentiate this particular dasa from other sampat dasa namely Chara Paryaya dasa. Does any body know that we have conditional dasas in Jaimini as well? In my humble view, this one is a conditional dasa. The key of this dasa is the stronger house. Then, how to select the stronger house between Lagna, 5th house and 9th house? Does anyone here offer any idea of what Jaimini instructed regarding this dasa? The answer lies with Jataka Sara Sangraha by Raghava Bhatta, which I will bring soon.
Next, the Vriddha Karika sloka deals with how to choose the starting dasa sign for male and female natives. The key here is one source of strength. Some scholars mix up the strengths without understanding the purpose of each source of strength.
Meanwhile readers will do well to read my Guru’s translation of Jaimini Sutras, where it was clearly explained. In fact, this blog is named in reverence to my Guru’s book Jaimini Sutramritam.
