Balance at Birth Time

This chapter describes the calculation of Dasa balance for Kalachakra.

Calculation of Dasa Balance

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

Example

Again the same chart.

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

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.

  1. 1st Mahadasa is leo (5 years): 15.72770504 - 5 = 10.72770504.
  2. 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.
