Tara Lagna – It’s Role in Determining Wealth By Shanmukha, India
Jaimini system of Astrology is replete with a variety of combinations for determining Raja Yogas and wealth of native. These combinations are very unique and not easily understood by the students. Many a time, even the scholars with high intelligence quotient fail to understand the correct interpretation of these highly codified aphorisms of Jaimini. The reason for such failure is attributable to the very nature of their expertise in Parasara system of Astrology.
Understanding the basic canons of Vedic Astrology including Parasara system is essential for deciphering the Jaimini Sutras. However, serious student of this Jaimini system needs to unlearn their previous understanding of Jaimini to correctly decipher these sutras. Importing Parasara concept of calculating longitudinal special lagnas to Jaimini system does forbid correct view of Jaimini but also misleads the student to erroneous results. For example, there had been a couple of attempts to calculate longitudinal Arudha (Savayava Arudha) by revered scholars like Dr. B.V. Raman which was never accepted by the scholars like Sri Iranganti Rangacharya. Similarly, there was an attempt by another revered scholar to extend Sudarshana Chakra philosophy to Chara Dasha. The accuracy of such attempts will be decided only by test of time. These scholars with high intelligent quotient seem not to accept nor try to understand tradition of Jaimini system. Readers would do well to read “Jataka Narayaneeyamu” by Vadrevu Suryanarayana Murthy to understand the importance of Traditions (Sampradayas) in Astrology to decipher correct purport of information in Astrological treatises. It is accepted fact the tradition of Jaimini is lost in time, but some fragment of the same is available for sincere students in the form of manuscripts. The following is an attempt for renaissance of Jaimini tradition.
