This chapter describes the calculation of Dasa balance for Kalachakra.

Calculation of Dasa Balance

Determine the birth Nakshatra and the Pada of the Moon.

Calculate the portion of the Moon in the birth Pada. This can be
done with the time method or with the longitude method.

Example

Male birth at July 6 1935, 11:45 AM local mean time. Location
Chinghai/Kohonor Tibet, longitude 91:41:00 E, latitude 29:43:00 N.
Universal time of birth is 5:38:16AM.

Moon's position is 20 37'00" leo (Lahiri Ayanamsa). Birth Nakshatra is
Purva Phalguni 3rd Pada.

The elapsed Pada portion is 0.185031824 (time method).

Finding the Birth Influence

Determine the Savya/Apsavya chakra for the birth. Determine
Paramayus, Amsa, Deha and Jeeva.

Get the expired portion or the Kalachakra by multiplying the Pada
portion with the Paramayus.

Deduce the number of years of the Kalachakra Mahadasas from the
portion of birth Pada until the value doesn't fit into the next
Mahadasa. This procedure will yield the Mahadasa at the birth.

Determine the elapsed time of the first Mahadasa (proportional
value).

Calculate the following Dasas.

Example

Again the same chart.

The birth is in Purva Phalguni 1st Pada. So we have

Apsavya chakra, Mrigasira group

Deeha is Capricorn, Jeeva is Gemini.

Paramayus is 85 years.

Since the Paramayus is 85 years, we get a time portion of
15.72770504 years = 15 years 8 months 22 days.

We deduct the Mahadasa times from this value until the last Mahadasa is
greater than the portion.

1st Mahadasa is leo (5 years): 15.72770504 - 5 = 10.72770504.

2nd Mahadasa is Cancer and has 21 years. This is more than 15.7
years, so we have found out that Cancer is the first Mahadasa.
