4. O Brahmin! Take a point and from it draw three circles. Within the circles draw 12 lines, so as to provide 12 Houses within each circle. This is how Sudarshana Chakra is drawn.
5-6. In the first circle (innermost) place the 12 Houses from Lagna with Planets, posited there. In the circle next to the innermost circle place the 12 Houses from the Rāśi of Moon with the Planets in them. In the third circle place the 12 Houses from the Rāśi of Sun with Planets in them. Thus there will be 3 Rāśis in each House of the Chakra.
7-9. The significant aspect of this Chakra is, that Lagna, Moon and Sun represent the first House. The 2nd, 3rd etc. up to 12th from Moon and Sun will deal with the same subject, as they do, when reckoned from Lagna. Then the results should be assessed, according to the Planets in each House. In this form of Rāśi Kundali Sun is considered auspicious in the first House and inauspicious, or malefic in other Houses. The malefics do not produce evil effects, if they are in their exaltation Rāśi. In this manner predictions should be made, after considering the benefic and malefic natures of the Planets, their disposition and aspects from and on them.
10. A House gets advancement, if it is occupied, or aspected by the Lord, or a benefic. The House, which is occupied, or aspected by a malefic, is harmed.
11-13. The effects of a House will be in accordance with the Planet occupying it, or in accordance with the Planet aspected, if no Planet is in occupation of the House. The effects of a House, occupied by a benefic, will be auspicious and the House, occupied by a malefic, will be inauspicious. Effects of the aspects will be the same. If a House is influenced both by benefics and malefics, the results will depend on the majority amongst the benefics and malefics. If the number of benefics is larger than the number of malefics, the results will be auspicious. If reverse is the case, inauspicious, or evil effects may be expected. If there are equal number of malefics and benefics, those with greater strength will influence the results of that House. Mixed results should be declared, if there be no difference in the strength of malefics and benefics. The same would apply to aspects.
14. The effects should be declared, according to its Lord, if the House is neither occupied, nor aspected by a Planet.
15-16. A natural benefic loses his benevolence, if he is in more malefic Vargas. Similarly a natural malefic loses his malevolence, if he is in more benefic Vargas (SaptaVarga). A Planets own Rāśi, his exaltation Rāśi and benefic Vargas are considered auspicious. And malefic and the Vargas of an enemy and debilitated Rāśi are considered inauspicious.
17. The sage said, that the results should be declared only after assessing the auspiciousness and inauspiciousness of all the Houses.
(21-23) The sage said. O Brahmin! Now I will tell you about the effects, produced every year and every month by the twelve Houses in their Dasas and Antardasas, according to Sudarshana Chakra. Under this system every one of the twelve Houses, beginning from the 1st, is allotted a Dasa period of one year. Thus every year in 12 years a House becomes Lagna of the year and the remaining become 2nd, 3rd and so on. Every year every House will have Antardasa of one month. By following the method of Lagna of the year here also, there will be a Lagna of the month. The first Antardasa will be of the first House and then will follow for 12 months the Antardasas of the other Houses, every House assuming the role of Lagna by turn. Every House gets Pratyantar Dasa of 2 days and Vidasa of 12 Ghatikas. The same method is to be adopted for judging the effects of Houses in Pratyantar Dasas and Vidasas.
