The All-Important Yogas in Vedic Jyotisha is meant for proper analysis, constitution
and fixation of effects of the Yogas in a given chart. Although a plenty of Yogas has
been described in the classics where the determination of the Yoga is highly
important. Nowadays, people fix Yogas in a cursory manner and thus, they simply
ignore the essential conditions cited by the sages when Yoga emerges indeed. This
exercise leaves the readers in a state of being ill-understanding the structure of
certain Yogas. Besides their structure, the sequence of checking their constitution is
All-Important Yogas in the order of their preference have been elucidated in an
easy-to-understand format with actual example horoscopes.
Much famous Yogas like the Gaja-Kesari, the Panch-Mahapurusha yogas, etc.,
have been dealt with in a proper manner citing all conditions of their fulfillment.
In fact, the Maha-Purusha Yoga turns into an 'Upa-Purusha Yoga' under certain
circumstances; therefore, covering all possible situations, one full chapter has been
devoted to the subject.
Yoga, viz. Cazimi, the most popular one in the western astrology, basically has its
roots in Vedic Jyotisha only. So the topic has been included here with critical notes.
More than ninety significant Yogas which are not discussed in popular books are
also simplified alongwith the Lunar and Solar Yogas, Raja-yogas and Naabhasa
Some less discussed rather popular Yogas like the Kaala-Sarpa Yoga, Jwalamukhi
Yogas, Mangalika Yoga, Reka Yogas, Hrada Yoga, Kaaka Yoga, Phani Yoga,etc.
are also enunciated.
The real charm of the 'Pravrajya Yogas' does not simply confine to the state of being
a Sanyasin, but it extends to the pursuit of wandering for the quest for knowledge,
learning, truth, invention, research, etc.,
The fructification of any positive Yoga, even constituted properly, becomes hurdled
under certain dispositions. The same have been discussed in the chapter, viz.,
Pitfalls in Yoga Analysis.
The book profusely enhanced with actual example horoscopes, contains the real
essence of the dicta of the sages and logically deals with misgivings on the subject.
A charter on the subject bound in technique and sound in application.
The Sanskrit word 'Yoga' stands for various sense in different
contexts. So the word may mean, 'connection', 'combination', 'a
union', 'sum total', 'blend', 'interaction' 'the Yoga' (a branch of
Indian Philosophy or physical exercise, i.e., Hatha-Yoga) or 'the
cosmic play of Lord Vishnu', etc.
As referred to Vedic Astrology, it primarily means, 'A
combination of certain astrological factors'. In its broad spectrum,
the term conveys a specific blending of several factors involving
association, aspect and placement in rashis or houses of Grahas
generally in the natal chart. These factors may also indulge Tithi,
weekday, nakshatra, specific degrees in longitude and the quality
of the moment of birth. The Yoga, in general, confers auspicious
and highly desirable results on the native'.
A large number of Yogas are cited in the classics where the
term remains prefixed either with 'Kaaraka' or 'Maaraka' underlining
their inherent nature. So the most benevolent yogas are known
as the 'Kaaraka-Yogas', while the most malevolent ones as the
The Kaaraka- Yogas are further cited having some adjectives like
Solar or Lunar Yogas, Raja-Yogas, Dhana-Yogas, Naabhasa Yogas,
etc. The Maaraka-Yogas comprise of Reka-Yogas, default Maaraka,
Special Maaraka, etc. The term 'Yoga' is popularly stands for the
Kaaraka effect, so we remained confined to the benevolent yogas
of different grades only.
The latter ones, for manifesting their literal lethal effect, always
depend upon the assessment of longevity of the native. And the
same essentially calls for separate effort for dealing with, therefore,
falls out of the domain of this present work. Soon we intend to
come forth with that area too dealing with the most cumbersome
rather confused field of Vedic Jyotisha in an authentic as well as
lucid manner. Yogas mentioned here should never be taken for the
'Vishkambhadi Yogas', one of the five components of the Vedic
We must take note that yoga properly constituted in a given chart
is, more or less, effective throughout life, but the effect becomes
intense when supported by favourable dasha, etc.
Whereas, the yogas instill qualities, reflect natural responses
and behavior of the native, hence, point out the basic formation
of native's personality that represents his focus, goal, aspirations,
ambitions, efforts put in to achieve and the suitable platform for
the same during one's life time. Therefore, Yoga intensifies native's
in-built characteristics, hence may reflect every time, but highlighted
during favourable time-periods.
Yoga may manifest various qualitative effects for the native. In
the Bhagvad-Gita, eighteen chapters hint the eighteen varieties of the
yoga-effects like dedication (karma), knowledge (Jnana&VIjnana),
kingship, plenty (Vibhuti), mixture of positive and negative traits
(Guna-traya), Maha-Purusha (Purushottama), behavior (Aachara)
and Sanyasa-yogas. Hence, the yoga that a chart obtains may
conclude with the high-knowledge, the benevolent acts or the high
grade Bhakti (full-fledged dedication) as Lord Krishna states:
For example, the Lunar and the Solar yogas show the in-built
strength and energy of the native's body, mind and soul. The Aashraya
yo gas exhibit the element of mobility or fixity. The Samkhya yogas
do underline the fact that Grahas crowded in a limited number of
rashis, because imbalance strengthening those occupied by on the
cost of others. The maximum spread of Grahas provides a balanced
state of significations of rashis and Grahas in an individual.
In the present text, an innovative elucidation of the real nature
of understanding the 'Yoga' is given. The principles are profusely
illustrated with actual horoscopic charts.
Some celebrated but ill-determined combinations like the 'Gaja-
Kesari' or the 'Pancha-Maha-Purusha' yo gas have been discussed
in an elaborate rather logical manner without straying away from
the guidelines of the sages of an exalted intellect.
