Nakshatra Dasas

Dasas are the most important tool for timing of events in Vedic astrology.

This chapter is not an introduction to Dasas. It is meant as comprehensive summary of their main properties and calculation basics.

General Note

There are 3 main categories of Dasas: Nakshatra Dasas, Jaimini Dasas and other Dasas. Most appropriate for general purposes is Vimsottari Dasa. Yogini and Kalachakra Dasa are frequently used, too.

Other Dasas are more difficult to use and often have conditions for their applicability. Beginners should not use these Dasas until they have enough experience in Dasa prediction (through Vimsottari, etc.). Details can be found if you follow the links.
