Those who know and practise the Vedic
astrology know very well that Vimshottari Dasa adds upto a total of
120 years. But what has kept all of them perplexed for thousands of
years since the time of great Sage Parashara is the reason/formula,
as to why the 9 planets in the Vimshottari Maha Dasa (henceforth
VMD) have been allotted 120 years. Also, why the VMD starts with
Mercury Mahadasa and ends with Ketu Mahadasa. Also astrologers have
always questioned why in VMD Rahu is allotted 18 years but its
opposite end, Ketu, is allotted only 7 years. Why Saturnthe
slowest planet has got 19 years allotted to it, but Mercury,
the smallest and fastest planet has been given 17 years?
There has been no real and valid answer on this available in modern
times with anyone, except a few evolved Jyotishis, who are actually
Sadhakas than mere fortune-teller.
It is to be carefully noted that the key to Vimshottari Dasa may
not be known to many modern day astrologers but evolved Sages, seers
and Jyotishis (astrologers who can truly see the future) have kept
these formulae of VMD well documented in their works that were
handed down, only to their most sincere and devoted disciples. Such
works are either in the possession of astrological families, like
ours, or are available in papyrus leaves, palm leaves and in
hand-made clay tablets, that are found in royal estate libraries of
erstwhile kings and Maharajas, and not in any modern library indexed
with computer systems.
The revelation of VMD code which I am revealing in this article
have been taken from my maternal great grandfather, late
Surendranath Jyotir Bachaspati jis personal note diary,
wherein he had written down in cryptic manner the formula of VMD.
This diary was given to me by my family in 1997. It was only in some
archaic formula the code was written in Bengali, which he never
explained to anyone during his life time, though he revealed it to
many people, many of whom were astrologers from South India, who
came to meet him regularly. This dairy is our family possession and
I have spent over one decade trying to understand the meaning of the
I have worked and re-worked the cryptic formula from that diary and
arrived at the final formula with the help of my own Sadhana, into
which I was initiated in February 2008 by my Guru ji late P.V.K.
Punneswara Rao ji of Hyderabad. I am revealing the formula for
the first time in the modern history of astrology
article now, which I have been able to solve after my initiation in
2008, because it is not for me to hold it anymore to my bosom, but
it should now go into the world for the betterment of humanity and
for the progress and solution of untold mysteries of astrology.
Understanding Lord Brahmas One Day
To understand the secret code behind VMD, it is very necessary to
first understand what is Lord Brahmas 1 day of existence and
what it transpires for our Yuga (eon), which is Kali Yuga. Those of
us who have read Vishnu Purana, 1st Khanda-3rd Adhaya will easily
1 Human Year of 360 days = 1 Day for Gods/Devata
It has been mentioned in the same Adhaya of Vishnu Purana that
Devatas Ayu (Gods lifespan) is 12000 Deva Varsh. This
12000 Deva Varsh = 12000 X 360 human days = 4320000 human years =
1 Maha Yuga
Lord Brahmas 1 day = 1000 Maha Yugas = 1 Kalpa
It is mentioned in Vishnu Purana that every Maha Yugas consists of
10 Charanas (or sections), therefore we get:
12000 Deva Varsh = 12000 X 360 human days = 4320000 human years = 1
Maha Yuga = 10 Charans This simply means that:
1 Charan of Lord Brahma = 1200 Deva Varsh = 432000 Human/Solar
My maternal great grandfather s notes stopped here. It is
from here that I carried forward with Gods illumination and
Now, we all know that 1 Maha Yuga is made up of 4 Yugas in the name
of Satya, Treta, Dwapara and Kali, which are descending layers
of degradation in purity of human existence and religiousness.
Also, in the first Yuga i.e. Satya Yuga, all the 4 Tattwas were
operative and all people were religious and pious. Gods and human
beings co-inhabited the Earth. So, this Yuga got full 4 Charans of
Lord Brahma allocated.
This gave the total value of Satya Yuga as:
4 Charans X 1200 Deva Varsh = 4800 Deva Vash = 1728000 Human /
Similarly, in Treta Yuga,
human beings became degraded in
their religiousness. Only 3 Tattwas operated during this Yuga.
Nonetheless, people could directly connect to God and God was easily
available at the call and request of the human beings. But Lord
Brahma reduced the Charan allocation to 3. Therefore, the total
value of Treta Yuga became:
3 Charans X 1200 Deva Varsh = 3600 Deva Varsh = 1296000 Human/Solar
In Dwapara Yuga,
human beings became degraded further down
in religiousness and Gods left the Earth and went to stay in the
heaven. With sincere devotion of the devotee, however, God did come
to human beings, but it was difficult to keep God happy. Lord Brahma
allotted only 2 Charans for this Yuga, as only two Tattwas were
found to be operative during this Yuga.
Therefore, the total value of Dwapara Yuga became :
2 Charans X 1200 Deva Varsh = 2400 Deva Varsh = 864000 Human /
Finally, in our Yugathe Kali Yugaeach and every mortal
is a sinner of different degree and no one is exception to this.
Gods no longer appear in person, as there is too much Paap
or sin in the world and Gods cannot breathe in this sin-filled
Earth. Only a single Tattwa operates in Kali Yuga due to human
degradation in thoughts, actions and spirit. Lord Brahma allotted
only 1 Charan for this Yuga, so that this Yuga gets over fastest.
Therefore the total value for Kali Yuga is:
1 Charan X 1200 Deva Varsh = 1200 = 432000 Human / Solar Years
So, the Yuga duration reduces in a certain proportion as below :
How Vimshottari Dasa get 120 Years in total ?
||= 1728000 Human Years
||= 40% of a Maha Yuga
||= 1296000 Human Years
||= 30% of a MahaYuga
||= 864000 Human Years
||= 20% of a MahaYuga
||= 432000 Human Years
||= 10% of a Maha Yuga
The VMD got its 120 years allocation, on the basis of a perfect
mathematical calculation. However, to arrive at this, my Sadhana
helped me to connect two seemingly unconnected realms of the occult:
Jyotish and Samudrik Vidya. In Samudrika Vidya, Angalakshana
(prediction about a human being based on bodily features) can and
does reveal almost everything about an individual. Such revelations
come through comparison of the measurements of the human body vis-à-vis
the laid out standards. When I connected a specific aspect of
Angalakshana with Jyotish, I was illuminated with the planetary
allocations of years for VMD.
But first let us link with our Rig Veda. We all know that in the
Rig Veda in the 1st Mandal, 164 Sukta, 48 Rik, it is mentioned that
Dwadaspradhyaschakramekam Trini Nabvhani Ka-au Tachhiket
Tasminatsakang Trisata na Sankabo, Arpita Shashtirna Chalachala Sha
This means that our sky has a circle (i.e. Zodiac), which has 360
spokes (Sanku), which is nothing but the 360 degrees of the Zodiac.
Human life in all the Yugas are intricately linked to the Zodiac
in a particular manner,
about which I am not elaborating here
due to paucity of space. Now, the total life span of a Manav (human)
in a Yuga is derived from the formula:
% proportions of a Yuga in a Maha Yuga ÷
360 Degrees of the Zodiac
Therefore, the human life span in VMD for the 4 Yugas based on the
above formula is as below in Table 1 :
||% proportion in Maha Yuga
||Divided by 360 Degrees
||Total Human Life Span
It is for this reason that the VMD is of 120 years for human life
span in Kali Yuga. In Dwapara Yuga, human beings had 4 times the
life-span as that of Kali Yuga; in Treta Yuga; human beings had 9
times the span of life as that of Kali Yuga and in the purest of the
Yugathe Satya Yugathe human life span in Vimshottari
Dasa was 16 times that of Kali Yuga.
Readers may carefully note that the total number of human life span
over an entire Maha Yuga as shown in Column 4 of Table 1 that adds
up to a total of 3600 years. This is basically the 360 degrees of
the Zodiac multiplied by the Divine number 10the
number that Lord Brahma has used to define his Charan, over an
entire Maha Yuga.
This number 3600 is also the total value of seconds that we have in
1 hour. This same Divine number 3600, when divides the total number
of human years in Kali Yuga 432000, we get the value of 120, which
is once again showing the mathematical veracity of Vimshottari Dasa
formula. Not only this, readers may further note that the
proportional value of Kali Yuga (10% of 432000), which is 43200,
when divided by the Divine number 3600, gives us the value of 12the
total number of Rashis in our Zodiac.
Also note carefully that sum total value of the Maha Dasa in Satya
Yuga is 16 times that of Kali Yuga VMD (that is 120 X 16 = 1920
years. SEE Table 1 Column. 4); in Treta Yuga, it is 9 times of Kali
Yuga; in Dwapara Yuga the Mahadasa is 4 times that of the Kali Yuga
VMD. The total adds up to 16+9+4+1 = 30. This is the total number of
Degrees (Amsha) that we have in a Rashi (sign) of the Zodiac.
So, as I said earlier, there is no chaos theory in Gods realm
of existence and I am supremely lucky to have been allowed to take a
peep into that Divine realm through my Sadhana.
Planetary Year Allocations in 120 Years of
Let us now understand how each of the 9 planets got their
year-allocations in the 120 year VMD. For this, one has to know and
understand the ancient Singhalese (Sri Lankan) Samudrik
Shastra and Angalakshana. According to ancient and now
forgotten science of Angalakshana (prediction about a human being
based on a research study 83 EXPRESS STAR TELLER .. JANUARY 2015
bodily features), the human body in the 4 Yugas decrease in size.
This fact has been corroborated by many Biologists and
Archaeologists as well that over millions of years, the human body
has reduced in size.
According to Angalakshana Vidya, the human body can be measured in
or finger measurements. Every portion
of our body is under the control of a specific planet and an
ideal-shaped human being would have ideal measurements of his/her
body, as measured by an ideal palm with 5 fingers. This system is
called as Angulamsha
. I have always used this
rare knowledge belonging to my family to rectify birth time of my
clients and also to make predictions about people, especially when I
have seen any planets portion in the body or the face is out
of proportion than the normal allocated limit.
Now for an ideal-shaped human in Kali Yuga, the Angulamsha
measurement for each of the 9 planets based on Kala Purusha Anga
Bibhag is 4 times as follows:
|Ruling the upper head portion
Ruling the eyes portion upto nose end
Ruling the joint of the neck
Ruling the movement portions and limbs
Ruling the lower portions upto thigh
Ruling the reproductive portions
Ruling the feet portion
Ruling all the portions which have holes
Ruling the portions that are opposite to Rahus
once we multiply the Angul values with the value of 4 (because
the human soul must transmigrate 4 Yugas of 4320000 years, before
it is ‘naturally’ gets out of the Janma
Chakra, i.e. the cyle of birth and death), we get the
year allocations for all 9 planets in Vimshottari Dasa as below.
So, an ideal shaped human being would be 120 Anguls in Kali Yuga,
which is about 5 ft 8 inches.
