Horoscope of Sri Rama

Now I explain here the horoscope of Lord Sri Ramachandra, worshipped by all of us as PURUSHOTHAMA (worthy person with all the BEST qualities). On the holy occasion (April-14-2008) of Sri Rama Jayanthi (the birth day of God Sri Rama), I am happy, lucky and blessed by God (Lord) Sri Rama, to explain the horoscope of Bhagavan Sri Rama; Supreme God, incarnation God (Lord) Sri Maha Vishnu. His mission in his life (avathara) was Parithraanaya Sadhunam, vinasayacha dushkrutham, dharma-samsthapana arthaaya smabhavaami yuge, yuge = To protect the virtuous persons, to destroy sinners, evil doers, devils and demons; and to establish dharma (righteousness) in this world (Bhagavad-geetha sloka = Sanskrit verse). I am a devotee of Bhagavan Sri Rama = Sri Ramachandra arapana-masthu = I dedicate all this horoscope-analysis to the lotus feet of Lord Sri Rama.

This chart is prepared based on the descriptions written by Maharshi Valmiki, the original author of Ramayana in Sanskrit about the birth of Sri Rama. This is a very rare chart; this chart clearly shows Lord Sri Rama as an exemplary and a role-model (true hero) for mankind. Sri Rama is deemed to be the incarnation (Avatar) of God Sri Maha Vishnu. Place of birth : Ayodhya. Year : Sri Prabhava. Month: Chaithra. Day : Sudda Navami. Birth Star : Punarvasu. Maharshi Veda Vyasa in his Adyatma Ramayana described Bhagavan Sri Rama’s birth time in these slokas (Sanskrit verses)

Madhu maase, sithe pakshe, Navamyaam, Karkate subhe, Punarvas nakshathra sahithe, utchasthe graha-pamchake ! Mesahm Pooshani samprapthe, pushpavrushti samakule, aviraasee Jagannaatha, Parama-atmaa, sanaathanaha = During the Spring season of Vasantha-ruthu (madhumaase means Chaithra month; in April), Sukla paksha (waxing Moon), Navami thithi (9 th day after new-moon), in Karkaataka lagna (Cancer is birth house; ascendant) . in Punarvasu star (Moon is in Punarvasu star in Cancer; so Cancer is also Indu-lagna; Cancer is own house for Moon) when 5 planets were in exaltation and when Sun was in Mesha (Aries) Bhagavan Sri Jagannaath (the Supreme Lord of Universe was born; then sweet-scented flowers rained profusely for one muhurtha (duration of 12 minutes) from the sky on the castle where Sri Rama was born. The time of birth was described based on Lunar System of Vedic astrology. Sun stays in Aries during Mesha month (roughly from April—14 to May—14 ) of every year.

Sun is in Aries & is exalted. Moon is in cancer in his own house. Jupiter is in cancer & is exalted. Saturn is in Libra & is exalted. Mars is in Capricorn & is exalted. Venus is in Pisces & is exalted.

Rahu is in Sagittarius and Ketu is in Gemini. So all these planets possess the highest positional strengths. So among the Pancha- Maha-Purusha-yogas, three yogas, Ruchaka, Hamsa, Shashaka, are found in this natal chart

  1. Gaja-Kesari yoga : Moon and Jupiter are conjunct in Cancer (own house of Moon) causes strong Gaja-Kesari yoga. Gaja-kesari yogoyam Chandra-kendre Bruhaspathihi; Gaja-kesari yoga sanjatho, subha-yogam, satham aayu praapthihi. Moon in own house & Jupiter exalted; very strong. Highly beneficial.
  2. Chandra-Mangala yoga : Moon and Mars in opposition (7 th); Mars exalted. Chandra-Jeeva samayoge, Chandra-Mangala yogamuchyathe; tha-ubhau paripoorna-yoga-kaaraku; thath dvaya paaka kaaleshu paripoorna sukhapradaua raja-yoga and is highly beneficial.
  3. Mercury is in Labham (11 th) in friend’s (mithra) house. Highly beneficial.
  4. Nabhaschara pancha nija-ucha samsthaha, yasya prasuthau, nathu saarvabhuoma, sarva-jana poojitha = Five planets are exalted in a chart, the native shall be a great and powerful emperor with all noble qualities of head and heart and is adored by all the people in the world.
  5. Sath-budhi, vahana, dhana agamanaani , bhoova, prasada, sutha soukhya, samanvithaani , saadhu paropakara karanam, mani bhooshanani meshurabe, dina-mani, kurthena raanam = Sun - occupies the medium coeli; the 10th house from the ascendant or lagna. Sun is in Aries exalted (utch) and gets the digbala or the directional strength fully in that position. This makes the 10th house to be very strong. This is a sure combination for a great fame, valour, strength endowing a very powerful chakravarti yoga - a combination for becoming a great and powerful emperor. This is magnified as the kshatriya (warfare) planet Sun is the lord of 2 nd house (dhana-sthanam), Leo, bestowing immense wealth. Also Sun gives good sons and happiness due to worthy sons, and helping nature to good-natured persons.
  6. Lagne, lagne-esae, Chandranaam subhatve, thanoo pushtimaan, sundaro, bhogavanschaiva, varchasva ganikatho narahaa = Moon - occupies birth-lagna; Cancer is her own house. Moon is the queen of planets, bestows a strong-built physique and a courteous and noble mind. Moon makes the person very lovable to all. The Lagna lord is in Lagna itself; this is a great strength to the horoscope indicating a great personality of kind, generous and helping (saranagatha--vatsala) nature. But this also gives sensitiveness and sentimental quality to the native.
  7. Mars is exalted in Capricorn ; this undoubtedly makes the person the best of his kind in marshal arts. This red planet of war makes him a conqueror and win every battle he fights. Bhoume, kalathre,----, uche, bala-samyuthe, thasmin viraho paapavasapi = Mars, occupying the 7th(spouse) house, causes separation--sorrows from his wife, whole of his life! Mars being an aggressive malefic in troublesome opposition for Cancer, Lagnam (Ascendant), spoiled happiness in his married life.
  8. Labha-sthitue Soumya, --- vitha-parayanascha, silpe-anurakthaha, bahu-karma-kartha, ddergha aayu, arogya dhaha-anvithascha = Mercury - is the key planet of intelligence; it occupies a friendly sign of Taurus in Laabham (11th house). This gives the person a good grasp of the world and situations; a great wit and capability in politics required for a great ruler / king. This enables him to take a quick and right decision at proper time. Sri Rama, the incarnation of God Sri Maha Vishnu, this vaishnava (pertaining to Lord Vishnu) planet was of great help, as it stays in 11th, the house of help and friends ( Sugreeva, Hanuman, Vibhishanaa). Again, this same benefic planet is the tricky one which brought disaster in his life! Mercury being an enemy of lagna lord Moon, stays in 11th, the baadhaka (troublesome) place for the Cancer ascendant. He is the lord of Vyaya-sthana (house of loss; 12th house) and sodara-sthana brothers (3rd house) and so the native had to cede his kingdom to his brother Bharata. At the same time, he had to be in exile for 14 long years. During the main--period of Mercury , Sri Rama accomplished many difficult tasks; fought battles and wars; destroyed demons (raakshasas); His wife Sita Devi was kidnapped, he had to go through hard times in forest encountering demons, during this Budha-dasa period. He even had to cross the sea to get back his wife, killing Ravana, the kidnapper. Thus the 90% of great incidents / actions in Ramayana occurred during these 14 years, when the Maha dasa (main period) of Mercury was in progress for 17 years! It is surprising, this planet which is not so strong in the chart molded his main life and career! This is a peculiarity.
  9. Vividha sasthra rahasya vichakshana, sukha-jeevana, punya samanvithaha, savala vallabha-vandhya, su-charithravaan, bhavathi deva-gurua thanu-gehe = Jupiter - The great preceptor planet which rules all kinds of learning and knowledge is at his exaltation, giving Sri Rama a vast and deep knowledge in many branches. Jupiter is in birth Lagnam (ascendant; also thanu-bhaavam). This is the planet which makes him well-known and adored for his virtues like keeping his promises, protecting the dharma (justice), monogamy, love towards all; and destroying the bad, evil and sin. Again Jupiter is with Moon, the house lord, also forming a classical Maharaja yoga, Gaja-Kesari Yoga. This is a great combination for fame and wealth earned by one's good virtues and is also a strong chakravarti(Emperor) Yoga. Jupiter gives him proficiency in Vedic knowledge and justice. Above all, this planet makes him simple but right in his behaviour, thus contributing to most of the 'right morals' or MARYAADA of the person.
  10. Vimala theertha-ratho, muditha-sada, suravara, dvija bhakthi yutha, suchihi, nija bhja aarjitha bhagya mahotstho,, bhavathi dharma gathe, bhruguje naraha = Venus is in bhagya-sthanam (9th house), the place of fortune. Venus is exalted and is connected to wealth, luxury, happiness, good fortune and pleasures, crowned him an Emperor! Also he has great respect to devathas (deities) and brahmins and scholars and maharishis. But, Venus is enemy of Lagna-lord Moon, and a baadhaka (trouble-giver) for Cancer ascendant. So Venus caused turmoil in his life with respect to his WIFE, Smt. Sita Devi. Sri Rama’s real problems started after his marriage; and his noble and good natured and very beautiful wife became the cause for his troubles when in exile. It is obvious that the person derived very less happiness from his wife. All these can be attributed to Venus - the kalatra kaaraka (significator of spouse). Yet, Venus is in a good place and strong and so the person possessed strong and pious morals and adhered to monogamy. Since 9 th house also represents father, he had to suffer early death of his father, King Dasaratha.
  11. Bandhu-sthithe Bhanu-suthe, narnaam jathasya, nashtaha, kramrohi, bandhanaaha, sthree, puthra gehe, artha-vinasakasancha, sthanatha yathi sukhna-heenaha = Saturn – occupied, the 4th house (Kendra; quadrant), Libra; it is his exalted house.. This is a very powerful combination in making Sri Rama an emperor or the ruler of people. This makes the person very popular for ever. Strong Saturn made him possess an excellent knowledge of (sastras) weapons and (asthras) magic missiles. It is Saturn who gave the Sir Rama a good endurance, saintly behaviour and non-materialistic austere mentality. But Saturn is inimical to Moon and rules Capricorn, the 7th house representing materialistic concept of SPOUSE. He also rules the 8th house (randhra) causing many troubles. So, Saturn caused the separation of Sri Rama from his wife for a long time and caused a lot of troubles before their re-union. Dharma-Karma-adhipa ava-yoga (here).
  12. Rahu-Kethu: Both Rahu and Ketu are exalted; Rahu is in 6 th house (Sathru-sthaanam), in Saggitarius causes what is known as Kodanda Rahu Yoga, a combination which bestows success over enemy, but also causes worst difficulties from his enemies.. This also causes fear of serpents; if carefully examined, there is an event during war where Sri Rama suffers from S arpa--astra or the Serpent missile shot by Indrajit, the demon Prince. Kethu, the planet of Moksha is in 12th, the house of moksha or the salvation, assuring that Lord Sri Rama was a divine person. Sri Rama entered River S arayu to attain salvation (avatara-samapthi), after achieving his goals in this world.
  13. CURSE OF A BRAHMIN: Jupiter denotes Brahmins highly learned in Vedas and religious scriptures like jyothisha (astrology) and spiritual person and prisests who perform poojas and abhishekams and other ritual daily for many years. Afflication of Jupiter by Sarutn (10 th drushti on lagna and Jupiter) and Mars (7 th drushti on lagna and Jupiter) indicates the curse of a Brahmin in the previous or present births. A Brahmin may also fulfill the curse of a Brahmin; naturally the later Brahmin will be of very bad temperament and nature.
  14. Bhagavan Sri Maha Vishnu was cursed by a Brahmin Maharshi to suffer separation of wife for many years. This curse was realized during the incarnation of Bhagavan Sri Rama, In spite of the excellent chakravarthi-yogas in the Rasi chart, Sri Rama suffered hurdles which stopped his coronation function by his father; due to malefic aspect (7 th drushti) of Saturn on 10 th house (Rajya-sthanam), he had to undergo 14 years aranya-vasa (stay in forests) and suffer hell of troubles with his family during the Budha period.
  15. In spite of the excellent chakravarthi-yogas in the Rasi chart, Sri Rama suffered hurdles which stopped his coronation function by his father; due to the malefic aspect of Saturn (7 th drushti) on the 10 th house (Rajya sthanam). Sri Rama had to undergo 14 years aranya-vasa (stay in forests) and to suffer hell of troubles with his family during this malefic period of Mercury (Budha). Thus the presence of a curse can ruin the effects Chakravathi-yogas (Beneficial effects of a great Emperor). Jupiter and birth-lagna together are aspected by Saturn and Mars indicate this curse of a Brahmin on Bhagavan Sri Rama. Jupiter in Thanu-Bhava (in birth-lagna), Sri Rama experienced this suffering. The houses owned by Saturn indicate the problem aspect; here marriage and or married life. Here Saturn is the lord of 7 th and 8 th houses; the 7 th house is additionally marred by the presence of Mars (malefic). Great and mighty King Ravana abducted Sri Rama’s wife, Smt. Sita Devi. Both Sri Rama and Smt. Sita experienced unimaginable suffering during that period of their separation. Finally their ordeal ended with the death of Demon King Ravana. King Ravana was a Brahmin by birth; he was a great devotee of Lord Siva and got many boons from him. He did Siva abhishekam and archana daily; he also did all the religious rituals to be done by a Brahmin like Sandhya-vandanam and Surya-namaskarams and tarpanas to Lord Surya and other deities like Sri Gayathri Devi, regularly thrice a day; thus he earned strong divine powers. Just like a drop of poison in a pot of whole milk makes the whole milk poisonous, all the great pious karmas done by King Ravana became useless and non-effective and caused his death. But his one sinful karma of abducting Sri Sita Devi caused his destruction. This is the most valuable lesson every wise person must learn, namely, “Even a single misdeed can ruin all the virtues of a person and lead him to peril". Bhagavan Sri Rama worshipped Bhagavan Sri Siva at Rameswaram; he was redeemed from the curse of a Brahamin (King Ravana) by Bhagavan Siva’s grace.

  3. Varga-uttama-amsa : Mars in in Cancer both in Raasi and Amsa charts; this gives enhanced effects due to Mars. Saturn (yoga-kaarak) is in Scorpio both in Rasi and Amsa charts; this gives enhanced effects due to Saturn.
  4. Parivarthana (Exchange) yoga : Venus is in Cancer ruled by Moon; Moon is in Taurus ruled by Venus. This strengthened the benefits of Moon and Venus in both their periods.
  5. Sun is in his own house, Leo, in Kendra (4 th house) from lagnas Vrusha lagne’ chathrthe Bhanau, vahana, udyoga, viabhavam = Sun gives many vehicles, riches, highest position of a king and pomp and prosperity of a king.

Analysis based on planetary positions:

  1. Birth lagna is Taurus and Venus is its lord. Exalted moon (47*45’) is very near birth lagna (50*41’). Vrushabha lagne Chandra stithau, su-roopam; paripoorna bhagyadaha = Moon bestows him handsome and strong ,body and the period of Moon is highly beneficial to him.
  2. Saturn’s (yoga-kaaraka for Taurus) drushti (aspect) is on Moon and birth lagna; so Sri Krishna is very handsome. Venus, Moon, Mars and Saturn have dominant influence and this combined beneficial effect has given Sri Krishna a very graceful and handsome appearance.
  3. Venus is in his own house (5 th from Lagna) in Nava amsa chart; this bestowed him magnanimous nature: he was epitome of courtesy and kindness even to poor person like Kuchela; and to low-born Chandala servant-maid Kubja (as we find in Bhagavahta).
  4. Mars is in cancer and is debilitated; and gave him neecha-bhanga raja-yoga; Mars is martial nature planet; he has Varga-uttama-amsa; this gave Sri Krishna invincible martial powers; Mars in 3rd house (courage & bravery). He fought bravely and killed hundreds of mighty raakshasas like Kamsa, Sisupala, Dantavakra. His tact, courage, resourcefulness in battle field are extolled several times in Sri Bhagavatha. He caused death of Kaalnemi like raakshasaas by tact, because they can not be killed in face-to-face fight by the boons they acquired. All these super-yogas made him a Ruler of the world and an Emperor of the Universe. Mercury is exalted in Virgo, his own house and is in 5 th house (Kona; Sri Maha Lakshi stanam). Vrushabhe panchame Soumye, akhanda raja-yogasya, vidya, vahana, udyoga, puthra labhadaha = The person enjoys the stature and comforts and life of an Emperor; he gifted with highest level of learning; he has numerous vehicles, horses, and elephants; highest power and profession (he ruled the Universe).
  5. Moon is the planet of emotions; she is exalted in birth lagna; so Sri Krishna had lot of emotional attachment to his devotees and hastens to rescue them without any delay; ex: Draupadi devi at the time of her modesty being attacked in Kaurava royal court by Demon-brothers Duryodhana and Dussasana and others. This also gave him serenity of mind and is unmoved in the most difficult and precarious situations; ex. at the time of his visit to Kaurava’s royal court as ambassador of Pandavas to encourage Kauravas to abstain from war and give some share in the kingdom, Kauravas tried to harm him; he did not lose his composure and dealt them in befitting way.
  6. Mercury is the lord of 2 nd (house of speech) and 5 th (house of intellect) and is in Virgo (5 th; house) and is exalted. This bestowed him highest intelligence, power of speech to convince persons and turn them to his side tactfully. He is an intellectual giant; he posses the highest power of understanding; he tactfully dealt with Duryodhana when he approached him for support in Kurushethra war and helped Arjuna. He dealt with various virtues and deceptions all his life quire successfully. The ideal disposition of Mercury gave him uncanny diplomacy, skills of tackling and unlimited vision; he possessed boundless power of thinking and planning. He planned several incidents and mainly the Kurukshetra war and executed his plans so meticulously that always his plans were successful and yielded the results he wanted.
  7. Lord Sri Krishna has Moon’s period (Chandra Maha Dasa) running at the time of birth. Krishna Ashtami Moon is waning and is 50% beneficial; 50% malefic. Saturn’s drushti (aspect) on lagna is malefic. Mars (lord of 7 th house; marakasthaana (death-causing) is in 3 rd house ruled by Moon So he suffered fierce attacks from demons like Poothana, Vrushabhasura, Sakatasura and the like; due to his divine nature, he killed them all and saved himself very easily. During the periods of Moon and Mars, he suffered many bala-arishtas (dangers of life during childhood) His birth star is Rohini; it causes danger to the life of his maternal uncle (Demon King Kamsa). The Bala-arishtas of Sri Krishna ended with his killing Kamsa, as part of his life’s mission.
  8. During Rahu main period, he destroyed most of the demons like Mushti, Chaanoora, Demon King Kamsa, Sisupala, Kalanemi, Madhu, Kaitabha and many more. During the period of Jupiter he maintained peace and tranquility in the world and helped Pandavas from their troubles.
  9. During the period of Saturn, he wielded his power and guided the Kurukshethra war and completed the destruction of evil forces prevalent in the form of Kauravas and their associates; and protected dharma (righteousness) in the world. He showered his blessings profusely on his devotees King Bhishma, Vidura, Akroora and bestowed them moksha (freedom from cycle of birth and death; salvation).
  10. Vrushe’ sendhau la savithur theekshan shuthanayoh suhruth jayaa khasyaur bhavathi niyamaan manavapathihi = If Vrushabha (Taurus) is birth lagna and Moon (Chandra) is in it, Sun ( Ravi) is in Leo (Simha). Saturn (Sani) is in Aquarius (Kumbha), the person will certainly be an Emperor. He is, like Sun, is very brilliant hero and unconquerable. 9) Jupiter is in the 4 th house (kendra) Sanamanadhyo, dhana, vahana, bhavnadai sanjatha harshaha, purusha ssadaivaha, nrupa-anukampana upaatha sampath; ambholi bhrun-manthrini bhoothalasthe = Sri Krishna is worshipped by millions of people then and now; all the kings and emperors adored him as the Supreme Lord; he received invaluable gifs and offerings from many kings and rulers. He is the perennial fountain of Brahma-ananda; a source of infinite bliss and happiness. He possesses all the land (Universe); he is omniscient (poseesed all knowledge and wisdom); all his relatives, friends and devotees prosper well and are immensely benefited by his grace . Sri Krishna was an epitome of rich and benevolent sympathy and responsive divine generosity and munificence. 10) Ravi, Jeeva samyuthau yathra Ravi paake su-yogadaha; Guru daaye maha-yogam; ithi nischayaha = The conjunction of Sun and Jupiter is highly beneficial. Both Sun and Jupiter bestow him the best benefits. Also this combination made him a terror to his enemies and a ever-helping friend to his friends, relatives, wise people and his devotees.
  11. Saturn is the lord of Bhagya (9th) and Rajya (10th) houses; he is very highly beneficial to Vrushabha (Taurus) lagna native. Saturn alone can give high benefits without any conjugation = Vrushabhasyacha Mandaika dharma-karma-adhip-bhaveth; Sani eakam subham- daanthum samartho. Saturn aspects (drushti on10 th) the 4 th house and Sun (Atma-kaaraka) and Jupiter (Dharma and Karma karaka) in Leo. So Sri Krishna possessed a msiilnary zeal to protect dharma and the rightesous. This is the main purpose of his avathar (incarnation).
  12. The lord of Lagna (Venus) and the lord of vyaya (12 th house) (Mars) and Rahu are conjunct in 3 rd house (upachaya); this explains the occurrence of birth of Sri Krishna in prison.
  13. Jupiter is the lord of 11 th house (Pisces); house of elder brothers; je in Kendra in 4 th house and gained 8 navamsas. He is aspected (10 th drushti) by Saturn and Saturn is conjunct with Rahu in nava-amsa. This explains the reason of his birth as the 8 th issue to his parents; and all his elder brothers were slain by Demon-king Kamsa.
  14. Moon is mathru-kaaraka (significator of mother) and is exalted; Sun is pithru-kaaraka (Significator of father) and is in his own house Leo in kendra (4 th house) and is strong. So Sri Krishna gave immense joy and happiness by releasing his parents from prison; also they lived hale, healthy and happy and had very long-life-span.
  15. Venus is kalthra-karaka (significator of wife), Mars is lord of vyayam (12th house) and 7th house (Scorpio). Venus (102*53’), Mars (91*05’) and Rahu (108*23’) are together in 3 rd house (upachaya). Due to this Sri Krishna has 8 wives. Venus and Rahu are very near and Mars (sensuous planet) is away from Venus. Sri Krishna has no carnal attitude; in fact he practiced and preached total detachment from worldly pleasures and possessions. Venus as lord of birth lagna endows him vitality, but he has complete control over his senses, desires and organs.
  16. 5th house (Virgo) has its lord Mercury in exaltarion; Jupiter is (puthra-kaarak) is in Kendra conjunct with Sun (in his own house); these benefic aspects bestowed him many children; all are hale, healthy, happy and highly gifted, like Anirudha, and Pradyumna.
  17. Sri Krishna has Jupiter-Sun (in his own house) conjunction in 4 th house; houise of education and learning. So Krishna has ocean of knowledge, wisdom and learning. He is a sikhsak (Guru) of Vedas, Vedaangas and all sastras and kalalu (fine-arts). He mastered 64 branches of learning in 64 days during his boyhood, says Sri Bhagavatham. He is expert in various asthras and sastraas (weapons use in battle). He is the Lord of all forms of learning and Supreme Guru.
  18. The Kurukshetra war occurred during his Ketu period. Sri Krishna played a vital and decisive role in Mahabharatha war and was the real hero of the episode, without taking active role in the war. Ketu is in bhaya-sthaana (9th house) ruled by Saturn (yoga-kaarka for him); Saturn gains full digbala (directional strength) by virtue of his position in 7 th house. Ketu gives the beneficial results due to Saturn. He was the driver of the chariot of Arjuna and was observing the war silently and appears to be passive. But he directed the movements and course of the war so meticulously, that he achieved his prime mission of life (avathara) “destroying the cruel and wicked Kauravas and their supporters and protecting the righteous, and virtuous Pandavas and their followers” quite successfully.
  19. Ketu is moksha-kaaraka (significator of salvation); he is in 9th house in the constellation of Moon. Mars (martial planet) apects (7th drushti) Ketu; Saturn was beneficial and very well fortified. It was during the end of Ketu period Venus sub-period, Sri Krishna preached the Bhagavad-geetha, the quit-essence of dharma to Arjuna on the Kurukshethra battle field before the commencement of war. When Arjuna shirked to fight overcome by emotions, Sri Krishna preached him his duty as Kshathriya to fight bravely in the war and leave the results to Parama-atma Sri Krishna. Bhagavad-geetha now is the basis for universal dharma and all real religions.
  20. After the Mahabharatha war Sri Krishna led a peaceful life during Venus. Sun and Moon periods for about 35 years.
  21. The starting of Mars period brought him troubles; dissensions among yadavas broke out. Finally Sri Krishna freed from his mortal body and attained his Divine status during this Mars main period and Mars sub-period during the directional (malefic) influence of Mars. Mars is lord of 7 th house is maarka (death-causing); he is in 3 rd house (upachaya), house of longevity and is conjunct with (malefic)Rahu; In Nava-amsa Mars is in 2 nd house (maarka sthaana; death-causing). Consistent with Mars nature. Sri Krishna was hit by an arrow of a hunter; and his end was caused by a weapon. God Sri Krishna changed shis mortal body into his divine temporal body and returned to his heavenly abode “Vaikuntha” . His physical body disappeared.
  22. It is impossible for ordinary persons to evaluate the divine personality of Bhagavan Sri Krishna. He is the Supreme Lord incarnate, statesman, counselor, diplomat, philosopher and Yogeswara, the expounder of immortal Bhagavad-geetha, the destroyer of the sinners and the protector of the virtuous = Parithranaya sadhoonam; vinasayacha dushkruthaam…
  23. All the three important factors in his horoscope, the strong birth-lagna, Sun and the Moon have been rendered very beneficial. Atma-kaarka Sun, conjunct with Janana-kaarka Jupiter aspecting (7th drushti) the 10th house (karma-sthaana) reveals a highly integrated and balanced personality of Sri Krishna. Saturn (Yoga-kaaraka) is in Varga-uttama-amsa and has digbala (directional strength). Saturn aspecting (10th drushti) Sun and Jupiter and his being placed in his own constellation are favourbale factors rendering the nativity strong and beneficial. Since Saturn happens to be aayu-kaarka (significator of longevity) also, the strong disposition of Saturn conferred a long life-span of 125 years to Sri Krishna.
  24. Mercury is lord of 2 nd (speech) and 5 th houses (intelligence) and is exalted in trikona (5 th house) proves him to be an extraordinary intellectual genius. 25) Lagna lord is Venus and is conjunct with two malefics Mars and Rahu in upachaya-sthaana. Jupiter and Sun are conjunct in Kendra (4 th house); these two important factors endow Sri Krishna perfection in all aspects of his personality. He is an ideal father, an ideal son, an ideal husband, an ideal ruler (king), an ideal statesman, and above all an ideal Guru (teacher who guides people like Arjuna from asath (ignorance) to sath and sad-gathi (wisdom and elightenment). He not only preached but also showed in practice to perform his own duties, by being non-attached to the deeds or its fruits (results).

My own remarks: I strongly believe that Sri Krishna was a historical reality. I vehemently oppose the so-called-scholars and modern politicians who argue that Sri Rama and Sri Krishna were not epic heroes but only fantasy figures. Even photographs taken recently from satellites and sub-marines revealed unequivocally the remains of the city of Dwaraka and its palaces submerged under the Arabian sea on the west coast in Sourashtra region. A mere fantasy figure and literary creation can not move billions of people from ages and bring solace and bliss to billions of souls. We can find clues to His divine personality based on the manner the benefics and malefics are disposed in his Horoscope and the spheres of influences involved. The explanation of the meanings of all His deeds can progressively reveal itself to thousands of generations that follow Him. The immortal and divine song of universal dharma, the great Bhagavad-geetha preached by Supreme Lord Sri Krishna to Arjuna, when he was wavering to fight the battle and do his duty properly, has inspired and influenced billions of persons for the past 5 thousand years. Geetha offered solutions to their problems according to their own stage of mental and spiritual evolution; it guided many on the path of righteousness and prevented many from treading paths of sin and wrong.
