HAPPY ANNOUNCEMENT : Sri Krishna Janma-ashtami holy festival ( Birth day of God Sri Krishna) is coming soon. On this holy occasion, I plan to publish a series of articles in this blog on the horoscope analysis of Bhagavan Sri Krishna Parama-atma. The series will start from August-22-2008, Friday onwards. I cordially welcome maximum number of persons to read these articles. I gladly welcome intelligent and enlightening comments and constructive suggestions on the articles in my blog.
Late Dr. B.V. Raman, a renowned astrologer, presented a unique formula to measure the exact intensity of "Mangal-dosha", on a scale of 100 points for each of the concerned malefic planets causing the dosha, in his books "Jaataka-Nirnay" and "How to judge a horoscope (vol. II)". Based on this formula, maximum "Mangal-dosha" in a chart may reach up to 337.50 points.
Though, many astrologers (specially in Northern India) do not consider 2nd house while assessing the "Mangala-dosha", Dr. B.V. Raman and many other scholars of astrology insist on considering the 2nd house also. While, the 2nd house represents family and wealth on the one hand, it is also the "Marak-bhava" of the native. Based on the principle of "Bhaavat Bhavam", it is also the 8th from 7th house and thus represents the age of the spouse. If Mars is posited in the 2nd house, Mars aspects the "Saubhaagya sthaan" or "Mangalya sthaan" of the wife through its 7th aspect. Through its 4th aspect, Mars afflicts the 5th house (house of progeny) and through its 8th aspect, it afflicts the 9th house, the most important house representing the father, destiny and Dharma / Bhagya (Prosperity and luck) of a person.
The following explanation is based on Dr. B.V. Raman's formula and hence considers the 2nd house also. It calculates "exact intensity" of "Mangala-dosha"/ "Kuja-dosha" (Malefic effect of Mars) in pure numerical terms in Rasi-charts / Bhava charts (Lagna kundli) of both the bride and groom and presents the detailed results in a tabular form. Lesser the difference in net intensity of doshas in both the charts, the better it is.
Theoretically, The "Mangali-dosha" (or, "Kuja-dosha", or, "Bhauma-dosha"), should not only be measured in Rasi / Bhaava chart (Lagna kundli) but also in Moon-chart and Venus chart too. But, in practice, it becomes too complicated to adopt these calculations. The Rasi / Bhaava chart has got the maximum importance in all matters and thus most of the astrologers consider Rasi / Bhaava chart only. However, if you wish to get these tabulated calculations for Moon chart and Venus chart also, we can provide then at an extra fees. Hereunder we give a sample of Kuja-dosha assessment.
