2. O excellent of Brahmins, various kinds of Avasthas of the Grahas have been expounded. Out of these, I will give you the summary of Baal (infant) and other states of the Grahas.
3. Baal, Kumar, Yuv, Vriddh and Mrit Avastha (Baal Adi Avasthas). Infant, youthful, adolescent, old and dead are the states of the Grahas, placed in the ascending order at the rate of six degrees in odd Rashis. In the case of even Rashis this arrangement is in reverse order. (Vriddh - Advanced, Mrit - In extremis)
4. Results. One fourth, half, full, negligible and nil are the grades of the results, due to a Grah in infant, youthful, adolescent, old and dead Avasthas.
5. Awakening, Dreaming and Sleeping States. If a Grah is in its own Rashi, or in exaltation, it is said to be in a state of awakening (alertness). In the Rashi of a friend, or of a neutral it is in dreaming state, while in an enemy’s Rashi, or in debilitation it is in a state of sleeping.
6. According to a Grah, being in Awakening, Dreaming, or Sleeping states, the results, due to it will be full, medium, or nil.
7. Other Kinds of States. There are nine kinds of other Avasthas, viz. Dipt, Swasth, Pramudit, Shanta, Din, Vikal, Duhkhit, Khal and Kop.
8-10. If a Grah is in its exaltation Rashi, it is in Dipt Avastha, if in its own Rashi, it is in Swasth, if in a great friend’s Rashi, it is in Pramudit, if in a friendly Rashi, it is in Shanta, if in a neutral Rashi, it is in Din, if a Grah is yuti with a malefic, it is in Vikal, if is in an enemy’s Rashi, it is in Duhkhit, if in a great enemy’s Rashi, it is in Khal and, if a Grah is being eclipsed by Sūrya, it is in Kop. Depending on such a state of the Grah, the Bhava, occupied by it will obtain corresponding effects.
11-18. Yet other Avasthas. Lajjit, Garvit, Kshudhit, Trushit, Mudit and Kshobhit are the other kinds of Avasthas, due to the Grahas. Placed in Putr Bhava, if a Grah is associated with Rahu, or Ketu, or with Sūrya, Śani, or Mangal, it is in Lajjit Avastha. If a Grah is in exaltation, or in Mooltrikon, it is Garvit. If a Grah is in an enemy’s Rashi, or yuti with an enemy, or receives a Drishti from an enemy, or even, if a Grah is yuti with Śani, the Avastha is Kshudhit. If a Grah is in a watery Rashi and receives a Drishti from a malefic, but does not receive a Drishti from a benefic, the Avastha is called Trushit. If a Grah is in a friendly Rashi, or is yuti with, or receives a Drishti from a benefic, or is yuti with Guru, it is said to be in Mudit Avastha. If a Grah is yuti with Sūrya and receives a Drishti from, or is yuti with a malefic, or receives a Drishti from an enemy, it is said to be in Kshobhit. The Bhavas, occupied by a Grah in Kshudhit, or in Kshobhit, are destroyed.
19-23. The learned should estimate the effects, due to a Bhava, in the manner, cited above, after ascertaining the strength and weakness. Weak Grahas cause reduction in good effects, while stronger ones give greater effects. If a Grah, posited in Karm Bhava, is in Lajjit, Kshudhit Avastha, or Kshobhit Avastha, the person will always be subjected to miseries. If a Grah in Putr is in Lajjit, there will be destruction of progeny, or there will be only one surviving child. Surely the wife of the native will die, if there is a Grah in Yuvati in Kshobhit, or in Trushit Avastha.
24-29. Effects of Garvit, Mudit, Lajjit, Kshobhit, Kshudhit and Trushit Avastha. A Grah in Garvit Avastha will cause happiness through new houses and gardens, regalhood, skill in arts, financial gains at all times and improvement in business. A Grah in Mudit Avastha will give residences, clothes, ornaments, happiness from lands and wife, happiness from relatives, living in royal places, destruction of enemies and acquisition of wisdom and learning. A Grah in Lajjit will give aversion to God, loss of intelligence, loss of child, interest in evil speeches and listlessness in good things. A Grah in Kshobhit will give acute penury, evil disposition, miseries, financial debacles, distress to feet and obstruction to income, due to royal wrath. A Grah in Kshudhit will cause downfall, due to grief and passion, grief on account of relatives, physical decline, troubles from enemies, financial distress, loss of physical strength and an eclipsed mind, due to miseries. A Grah in Trushit Avastha will cause diseases through association with females, leading over wicked deeds, loss of wealth, due to one’s own men, physical weakness, miseries, caused by evil people and decline of honour.
30-37. Calculation of Shayan Adi Avasthas. Now I will tell you of the Avasthas, viz. Shayan, Upavesan, Netrapani, Prakash, Gaman, Agaman, Sabh, Agam, Bhojan, Nritya Lips, Kautuk and Nidr and the Chesthas of such Avasthas. Note the number of the star, occupied by the Grah, for which an Avastha is to be calculated. Multiply that number by the number, denoted by the Grah (Sūrya 1 to Śani 7). The figure so arrived at should again be multiplied by the number of the Navāńś, where the Grah is in. Add to this the number of the birth asterism (ruling star, the one, occupied by Candr), the number of Ghatis of birth and the number of Rashis, Lagn gained from Mesh (Mesh 1, Vrishabh 2 and so forth). This figure should be divided by 12 and the remainder will indicate the corresponding Avastha of the Grah. The sub-state in the said Avastha can be found out in the following way. Multiply the figure (Sayan 1 to Nidr 12), denoted by the Avastha concerned, by the same figure and increase it by the figure, denoted by the Anka value for the first syllable of the native’s personal name. Divide the product so obtained by 12. The remainder thereof should be further increased by constant additives of the Grahas in the following way: Sūrya 5, Candr 2, Mangal 2, Budh 3, Guru 5, Śukr 3, Śani 3, Rahu (Ketu) 4. The product so arrived at should be divided by 3. In the process of calculation, if it happens, that the remainder is 1, it is Drishti, if 2, it is Chesht and, if 0, it is Vichesht.
Notes. Shayan Adi are of supreme importance, as compared to the other kinds of Avasthas.
In place of Navāńś, given above, some translators interpret the word Ańś, as degree, occupied by the Grah, which is obviously not correct. In this connection the reader’s attention is drawn to Balabhadr’s Hora Ratna, Ch. 3, wherein the author, Balabhadr himself, gives an example for Sūrya, being in the 7th Navāńś of Simh and thus he considered only 7, as multiplier. He quotes Adhibhut Sagara, as his authority for calculation of Sayan Adi.
Agaman Avastha is known, as Gamanechch by some exponents.
Anka value is 1 for a, ka, cha, ḍ a, dha, bha and va, 2 for i, kha, ja, ḍha, na, ma and sha, 3 for u, ga, jha, ta, pa, ya and śa, 4 for e, gha, ṭ a, tha, pha, ra and sa, 5 for o, ca, ṭha, da, ba, la and ha.
38-39. Effects of Chesht etc. If the sub-state is Drishti in an Avastha, the results, being stated for the Avastha, will be medium, the effects will be full in Chesht and negligible in Vichesht. The good and bad effects of Grahas should be deciphered, based on the strength and weakness of the Grahas. In exaltation the Grahas reveal effects in a pronounced manner, due to Avasthas.
40-51. Effects of Sūrya’s Avasthas. If Sūrya is in Sayan Avastha, the native will incur digestive deficiency, many diseases, stoutness of legs, bilious vitiation, ulcer in the anus and heart strokes; if in Upavesan, will suffer poverty, will carry loads, will indulge in litigations, be hard-hearted, wicked and will lose in his undertakings; if is in Netrapani, will always be happy, wise, helpful to others, endowed with prowess and wealth, very happy and will gain royal favours; if in Prakash, will be liberal in disposition, have plenty of wealth, be a significant speaker in the assembly, will perform many meritorious acts, be greatly strong and endowed with charming beauty; if in Gaman, will be disposed to live in foreign places, be miserable, indolent, bereft of intelligence and wealth, be distressed, due to fear and will be short-tempered; if in Agaman, will be interested in others’ wives, be devoid of his own men, be interested in movements and skilful in doing evil deeds, be dirty, ill-disposed and will be a talebearer; if in Sabh, will be disposed to help others, be always endowed with wealth and gems, be virtuous, endowed with lands, new houses and robes, be very strong, very affectionate to his friends and very kindly disposed; if in Agam, will be distressed, due to enemies, fickle-minded, evil-minded, emaciated, devoid of virtuous acts and intoxicated with pride; if in Bhojan, will experience pains in joints, will lose money on account of others’ females, will have strength, declining off and on, be untruthful, will incur head-aches, eat remnant food and will take to bad ways; if in Nritya Lips, will be honoured by the learned, be a scholar, will have knowledge of poetry etc. and will be adored by kings on the earth; if is Kautuk, will always be happy, will be endowed with Vedic Knowledge and will perform Yagyas, will move amidst kings, have fear from enemies, will be charming-faced and be endowed with knowledge of poetry; if in Nidr, will have a strong tendency towards being drowsy, will live in foreign (distant) places, will incur harm to his wife and will face financial destruction. Sūrya in Upavesan will make one an artisan, black in complexion, devoid of learning and miserable. One will serve others. In Netrapani there will be all kinds of happiness, if Sūrya is in Putr, Dharm, Karm, or Yuvati. In other Bhavas Netrapani of Sūrya will give eye diseases and enmity with all. If Sūrya is in Prakash, the native will be meritorious, religious and liberal, will enjoy pleasures, be equal to a prince and will enjoy the status of Kuber, the God of wealth. However, the Prakash of Sūrya, placed in Yuvati, or Putr will cause loss of the first child and will produce many litigations. If Sūrya is in Gaman, the native will incur disease of the feet and will be very mean. If in Agaman, Sūrya in Vyaya, or in Yuvati will destroy progeny and will give very limited wealth. If in Agam, Sūrya will give many miseries, an ugly appearance and foolishness. However, he will give wealth. Sūrya in Bhojan in Dharm will cause many hindrances to spiritual and religious undertakings. In other Bhavas Sūrya in Bhojan will cause head and ear diseases, apart from joint pains. Though Maharishi Parashar states, that the native with Sūrya in Kautuk Avastha will have fear from enemies, Bal Bhadr exempts such evil effect for the Ari Bhava position. Sūrya in Kautuk in other Bhavas will give a number of daughters, two wives, itch, excellence, liberality etc. If Sūrya is in Nidr, the native will be predisposed to incur piles and elephantiasis, will experience a lack of peace and he will be liable to lose his first child.
52-63. Effects of Candr’s Avasthas. If Candr is in Sayan, the native will be honourable, sluggish, given to sexual lust and he will face financial destruction; if in Upavesan, will be troubled by diseases, be dull-witted, not endowed with mentionable wealth, will be hard-hearted, will do unworthy acts and will steal others’ wealth; if in Netrapani, will be troubled by great diseases (long lasting in nature), be very garrulous, wicked and will indulge in bad deeds. Should Candr be in Prakash, the native will be famous in the world, will have his virtues exposed through royal patronage, will be surrounded by horses, elephants, females and ornaments, will visit shrines. If Candr is in Gaman with decreasing rays, the native will be sinful, cruel and always troubled by afflictions of sight. If Candr is in Gaman with increasing rays, the native will be distressed, due to fear. If Candr is in Agaman, the native will be honourable, will suffer diseases of the feet, will secretly indulge in sinful acts, will be poor and devoid of intelligence and happiness; if in Sabh, will be eminent among men, honoured by kings and kings of kings, will be very beautiful, will subdue the passion of women and will be skilful in sexual acts, will be virtuous; if in Agam, will be garrulous and virtuous and, if the said Candr is of dark fortnight, the native will have two wives, he will be sick, highly wicked and violent; if in Bhojan, will be endowed with honour, conveyances, attendants, social status, wife and daughters, provided Candr is Full ‘Purna’; if in Bhojan and is of dark fortnight, auspicious effects will fail to come; if in Nritya Lips and is endowed with (fortnightly) strength, will be strong, will have knowledge of songs and will be a critic of beauty of things; if in Nritya Lips and of dark fortnight, i.e. not endowed with strength, the person will be sinful; if in Kautuk, the native will attain kingship, lordship over wealth and skill in sexual acts and in sporting with harlots. Should waxing Candr, being yuti with Guru, be in Nidr, the native will be quite eminent. If waxing Candr is in Nidr, but devoid of Guru’s Yuti, the native will lose his wealth on account of females and female jackals will be crying around his abode (as though it were a cemetery).
64 75. Effects of the Avasthas of Mangal. If Mangal is in Sayan, the native will be troubled by wounds, itch and ulcer. If Mangal is placed in Upavesan, the native will be strong, sinful, untruthful, eminent, wealthy and bereft of virtues. If Mangal is placed in Lagn and happens to be in Netrapani, there will be penury; if placed in other Bhavas, Netrapani will confer rulership of a city. Should Mangal be in Prakash, the native will shine with virtues and will be honoured by the king. Mangal in Prakash in Putr will cause loss of children and of wife. If Mangal is in Prakash in Putr and happens to be there with Rahu, a severe (positional) fall will descend on the native. Should Mangal be in Gaman, the native will be always roaming, will have fear of multiple ulcers, will incur misunderstandings with females, will be afflicted by boils, itches etc. and will incur financial decline. If Mangal happens to be in Agaman Avastha, the native will be virtuous, endowed with precious gems, will adore a sharp sword, will walk with the gait of an elephant, will destroy his enemies and will remove the miseries of his people. If Mangal is placed in Sabh and happens to be in exaltation, the native will be skilful in conducting wars, will hold the flag of righteousness aloft and will be wealthy; if Mangal happens to be in Sabh in Putr, or Dharm, the native will be bereft of learning; if Mangal is in Sabh in Vyaya, childlessness and no wife and no friends will result; if Mangal is in other Bhavas in Sabh, the native will be a scholar in a king’s court (poet laureate), be very wealthy, honourable and charitable. If Mangal is in Agam, the native will be devoid of virtues and good deeds, will be distressed by diseases, will acquire diseases of the root of the ears (‘Karan Mularogam’ & ‘Padamulam Urumulam’ etc.) and severe gout pains, will be timid and will befriend evil lot. If Mangal is with strength, while in Bhojan Avastha, the native will eat sweet-food; if devoid of strength, will indulge in base acts and be dishonourable. If Mangal is in Nritya Lips, the native will earn wealth through the king and will be endowed with fullness of gold, diamonds and corals in his house; if in Kautuk, will be curious in disposition and will be endowed with friends and sons; if in Kautuk and simultaneously exalted, will be honoured by the king and the virtuous and will be virtuous himself; if in Nidr, will be short-tempered, devoid of intelligence and wealth, will be wicked, fallen from virtuous path and troubled by diseases. Should Mangal be in Upavesan in Lagn, the native will be extremely sinful and he will incur several diseases, will be indigent and not peaceful. If Upavesan occurs for Mangal in Dharm, the native will lose his whole wealth apart from his wife and progeny. Mangal in Netrapani in Lagn will give poverty and will destroy the native’s wife and progeny; if Mangal is in Netrapani in other Bhavas, this confers on the native all kinds of wealth and happiness from wife and children. The Dhan, or Yuvati position of Mangal in Netrapani will cause fear from lions and snakes apart from giving earnings from lands. Furthermore the native’s wife will predecease him. Should Mangal be in Prakash in Putr, or in Yuvati, the native will lose his wife and all children. If Mangal is placed in Putr in Prakash and is yuti with Śani, the native will kill cows. Should Mangal be in Gaman in Lagn, the native will be active in his assignments, will incur diseases of the joints, burning pains in the eyes and will obtain dental afflictions and the like, he will have fear from dogs and will adore the guise of a female. In other Bhavas Mangal in Gaman will bring royal favours, leadership and luxuries of life. Mangal in Agaman will cause piles and diseases of the rectum. If Mangal is in Bhojan, or in Sayan in Putr, or in Randhr, there will be untimely death for the native. In other Bhavas Bhojan of Mangal will confer wealth. Should Mangal be in Nritya Lips and happens to be in Lagn, Dhan, Yuvati, or Karm, the native will receive all kinds of happiness; there will be miseries in abundance, if Mangal is in Nritya Lips and placed in Randhr, or Dharm, apart from incurring untimely death. In other Bhavas Nritya Lips of Mangal will make the native akin to Kuber. Mangal in Yuvati, or in Dharm in Kautuk will give several diseases and death of the first child and wife. In other Bhavas Kautuk will confer scholarship, various kinds of wealth, two wives and more female children. In Nidr Mangal in Lagn, Dhan, Sahaj, Dharm, Karm, or Labh will give scholarship, foolishness and poverty. Putr, or Yuvati placement of Mangal in Nidr will give many miseries and many male children. Should Rahu join Mangal in Nidr in any Bhava, the native will have many wives, be miserable and will suffer from some diseases on the surface of the feet.
76-86. Effects of Budh’s Avasthas. Should Budh in Sayan be in Lagn, the native will be lame and will have reddish eyes (like the black bee); if Budh is in Sayan in other Bhavas, the native will be addicted to licentious (disregarding certain rules) pleasures and be wicked. If Budh is in Upavesan in Lagn, the native will possess (the seven principle) virtues; if Budh in Upavesan is in Lagn, receiving a Drishti from a malefic, or Drishtis from malefics, or is yuti with malefics, penury will result; if Budh in Upavesan is in Lagn, receiving a Drishti from a benefic, or Drishtis from benefics, or is yuti with benefics, financial happiness will follow.
