Mysteries of the Vedic Dasha System
In Vedic astrology – the astrology of India – major predictions can be made using only cycles called Dashas. Over 55 of them exist, but the most important one is the Vimshottari, meaning “120” in Sanskrit. A 120-year cycle starting at birth, it is based on the exact portion of the nakshatra (a 13 degree 20 minute segment) where the birth Moon is placed. Vimshottari Dashas use the sidereal, or constellational, zodiac.
Vedic seers, wise men from ancient times with enlightened powers, are credited with originating this and other Dasha systems. Based on the sequence of planets and how those planets are placed and influenced in the birth chart and other harmonic charts, notably the Navamsha, or 9th harmonic chart, the destiny of the individual can be seen in advance, and can be read independently from transiting planets, though the latter can add supporting information. In this lecture, we look at example charts that help to unlock the mysteries of the Vedic Dasha system.
