where Lakshmi is born in a chart. Lakshmi stands for prosperity
of all kinds and not just for money. Dhana Lakshmi gives money,
Dhanya Lakshmi gives food, Aarogya Lakshmi gives health, Vidya
Lakshmi gives learning, Gaja Lakshmi gives vehicles, Moksha
Lakshmi gives moksha and so on. There are different forms of Her
and each form shows prosperity of a particular nature.
Sree Lagna, which is based on Moon, is like the birth of Sri
Lakshmi along with Moon at the time of the churning of the Milky
Ocean. It is the root of prosperity in a chart. Sudasa starts
from it and it shows the prosperity.
Narayana rules external effort and sustenance and Narayana dasa
shows that. Lakshmi rules prosperity (which is really an
*internal* sense of well-being) and Sudasa shows prosperity and
While Sree Lagna is the root of prosperity (of all kinds) in a
chart, Hora Lagna shows wealth and what is supposed to be
prosperity in the material world.
So HL may show material success and wealth and it may be useful
in timing the fructification of dhana yogas. SL, its lord and
Sudasa, on the other hand, help us in understanding prosperity
of different kinds and blessings of Lakshmi in various forms.
I hope that the above was useful.
May Jupiter's light shine on us,
