predictive instincts. He is on the teaching

faculty of the Institute of Astrology of

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan since March, 1997. He

underwent the two year Astrology program

here from 1993 to 1995. Before induction into the

faculty in March, 1997, he was picked by Mr.

K.N. Rao as sectional editor of Journal of

Astrology. He also wrote several articles for the

Journal and contributed to several group

research projects. His book on Indian marriage

Deepak believes that one can be blessed with an

astrological sense only if it is in one's destiny.

We should respect the verdict of the almighty

and handle this divine gift with devotion and

commitment of a devotee, he says.


Deepak Bisaria, India

he more you delve into astrology

and look at the dashas available,

the easier it gets to understand

every aspect of a horoscope. Generally,

astrologers all over the world

follow nakshatra dashas. Among them

the vimshottari dasha reigns as the king.

All nakshatra dashas have one thing in

common, the degree of Moon. As a result

what happens mostly is that the Lagna is

known but Lagna degrees are not and

the vargas are not changing. Can

predictions be made?

It is to tackle this problem that Mr. Rao

felt Jaimini charadasha should be

researched into and has done with

seven karakas. Shown the use

of karakas which no one has ever done.

Let’s illustrate with an example.

Horoscope 1


Page 2: Deepak Bisaria

The person is running the dasha of Rahu-Saturn from 8-8-2011 and in chara dasha Virgo-

Cancer from 22-5-2012. From Virgo the 11th house is aspected by PK, Amk and AK and from

Cancer the 10th house by them. What can you predict about his son?

Contrast this with Horoscope 2

It is the dasha of Ketu-Ketu from 19-11-2012 in vimshottari. Ketu is in the fifth house. In chara

dasha it is Virgo from 2008 and presently the antardasha is of Pisces. The 10th house from

Virgo has PK which is eighth from AK. Both the dasha antar dasha rashi have the aspect of

PK. Here also the person is pushing her son but with difficulty.

In both the horoscopes children are being pushed. At a glance can you find out from any

other method?

Page 3: Deepak Bisaria

But this method also has risks of its own. People with identical horoscopes cannot have the

same prediction, therefore you have to go to the finer aspect that is also taken care both in

Parashari and Jaimini. There are divisional horoscopes. Parashara has given 55 dashas and

Jaimini 44, many conditional. How many have been lost we do not know.

Chara Dasha became synonymous with a delightfully stimulating and sharpening predictive

experience for me.

In our institute we often quote the great musicologist V.M.Bhatkande who used to say at the

end of five year music course during the convocation that what was taught for five years

was NAYAKI. Students should develop their own GAYAKI after that

In Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan the students are taught for two years in Alankar and Acharya

and thereafter in research classes, they are expected to use the techniques they learn to

develop their own style of predicting. The substance remains the same but style, GAYAKI

different though from the same school and under the same Guru.

For this reason perhaps the readers may find my approach a little different. No one can claim

to have mastered any aspect of astrology. We all are students and learners. We should keep

the process of elimination and addition on.

Astrology a Divine Superscience

here are 55 dashas of Parashara and 44 in Jaimini that are known to us. Both

Maharishi Parashara and Rishi Jaimini perhaps were superhumans for

they mastered these many dashas when we can at best, with the help of computer

software’s use only 3-4 of them. The amazing power to predict, experienced by many

through Chara dasha and its applicability on a very high percentage of horoscopes

strengthens the belief that these Rishis were blessed with divya drishti (supernormal

powers). This also strengthens the belief that these Rishis were just the medium selected by

the Almighty for this knowledge to be revealed to us. Our classical text does not mention

anywhere that these aphorisms were created or composed. They are said to have been



Chara dasha has become a tool of invaluable utility for present day astrologers. Its

pioneering principles have baffled many. The replicability of these principles and their

extensive use across the globe, reminds, time and again of the landmark achievement of

Mr.Rao. He writes in his book that it was a painstaking labour of over twenty five years.

He mentally calculates the dasha which he feels is the best way to discover its finer points.

Page 4: Deepak Bisaria

In the year 1994 I learnt Chara dasha in the Acharya class at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan ,

about the time of publication of the first edition of the book Predicting through Jaimini's

Chara dasha in 1993. In the 1995-97 research class under his guidance we

applied Chara dasha on many horoscopes and presented several case studies in seminars.

During this period I wrote astro-sketches on Ram Kishan Dalmia and Dr Rajendra Prasad.

Its definite edge over Vimshottari dasha in authenticating and rectifying

a horoscope:

Most of us at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan have this dasha built in our system. Many of us

calculate it in our mind and some through handy computers. The innovative model that we

follow for arriving at correct predictions begins with verification of the birth data of a

horoscope, by matching bio-facts with Chara dasha.

In view of the limited time available with present day astrologers it was difficult to detect a

wrong Ascendant by adopting the traditional methodology as only a sketchy picture from

the universal vimshottari dasha and transits could be got in a squeezed time frame In

contrast, chara dasha instantly flashes some specific events to confirm the Ascendant.

A word of caution is necessary here. The speed comes with risks. One tends to become

judgmental and is likely to forget that the success rate of predictions is in the vicinity of

only seventy percent with stand alone chara Dasha. It can be improved if the findings from

chara dasha are integrated with the findings from vimshottari dasha. Both dashas should

narrate the same story.

My Approach

My approach to a horoscope analysis underwent a change after I experienced the power

of chara dasha. Feedback from many also show that the chara dasha determines the life events

pretty accurately.

I have been giving readings for since the year 2009. Most of what I

am sharing is observed from application of chara dasha for predictions on horoscopes from

the website clients and from my family, friends and students. The sample size from 2009

would be over 2000 horoscopes.

Understanding the Desh Kaal Patra: Try to know the person. More the better. This

would help in choosing the focus - standard, psychological, or spiritual. Standard the most

common covers education career, marriage, health and property.

Assessment of Promise

Mark the chara karakas. Mark the aroodh (pada lagna) UP (upa-pada ) KL (karkamsha lagna)

U.Pada (Upa Pada) N.Lagna(navamsha lagna) MB (Mrityu Bhag)

Read the horoscopes from Lagna, Aroodh Lagna, Karkamsha Lagna, Navamsha Lagna and the

Atmakarka. Any karaka in 6, 8, 12 from these five important Lagnas would be weak. Note the


Generally any karaka afflicted by Rahu, Ketu or gnatikarka will also be weak. It has to be kept

in the mind that Rahu and Ketu are quick absorbers and act as a catalyst. At times they give

big jumps and windfalls. Even sometimes gnatikarka is positive for it denotes a relation. Help

from a relation or a loan is also seen coming from this karaka

Lastly see the horoscopic promise from the swamsha to refine predictions The yogas should

be seen in the navamsha also. See the mutual relationship of atmakarka and amatyakarka both

in the birth chart and the navamsha, the putrakarka and matrikarka for position and dignity.

This assessment should be kept at the back of the mind while presuming as Lagna the Rashi,

whose dasha is on. Life does not remain static, chara dasha beautifully indicates the phases of

life and point which aspect of life is likely to change. In which area a person can afford to

take risks and in which caution is advised.

Do not forget that the other rashis with their attributes and influences also aspect the dasha


Decode the karakas

Intermingle the natural karakas and seven chara karakas.

1. Sun as the fixed karaka for father and atma could also be the chara gnatikaraka in a


2. Similarly putrakaraka indicates dignity, education and children but could be Venus, the

natural karaka for spouse. If the putrakaraka if it is free from association or gaze of

gnatikaraka, Rahu or Ketu the education should would be good.

3. Any karaka getting into the 8th from rashi dasha could be a change or a problem.

4. Any karaka seen in the 10th house from the rashi dasha would remain the focus during

Page 6: Deepak Bisaria

the period.

5. Transits should be applied liberally both in the birth chart and the navamsha.

Gauge the Strength of the Rashis: The number of planets or their aspects on rashis

determine the activity, both good and bad depending upon the influences. Planets provide

energy. The phase would be more eventful in relative terms if there are more planets or

aspects on a rashi. Sagittarius and Leo have been found natural eventful rashis.

See all the houses from every MD/AD: The main- periods and sub-periods show the

changes. People are eager to know about the changes in store. Through Jaimini chara dasha

they can be easily predicted.

It is heartening to note that New Age Jaimini Astrology is being introduced by its developer

in Mumbai at the Chara Dasha Workshop organized by Saptarishis Astrology on March 29th

and 30th of 2013. Perhaps only a few Mumbaikars have had a taste of Jaimini Astrology live

from its developer. We are going there for we wish to serve those who cannot join Bharatiya

Vidya Bhavan in Delhi. Learning from books is not enough is what we also agree. We should

have periodical direct interactions to reinforce the learning.
