An Introduction To Jaimini Astrology
An Introduction To Jaimini Astrology
Description
Foreward

Astrology is such an excellent subject which indicates many things through planets, sings and Bhavas. Among major five parts, ‘ Hora plays a special role on human minds. In Hora Sastra, various methods are there to observe the future of the person. One among them is Jaimini. Jaimini approach is special than others.

Jaimini sutras are very complicated and difficult to understand. Writer of this valuable book Sri G.V.Prabhakara Murthy introduces the Jaimini principles to the students who want to study this subject. Understanding and explaining Samskrita Slokas in Jaimini is somewhat problematic. For that purpose, Sri G.V.Prabhakara murthy given the gist of Slokas which any one can understand easily.

He has kept the order of the topics in such a way that a student can gradually build up the knowledge without any difficult. He has dealt with the differences between parashari system and Jaimini system, the importance of Jaimini system in the beginning of the book itself.

The KATAPAYA identifications are given at the end of the book. If these are given in the beginning of the book, the student may get confused with it because there are no Samskritaa Slokas in the book and the student may not use this with proper understanding.

Other topics like Karakamsha, Arudha, Upapada, Aspects Argalas , different Lagnas and Chara dasa are dealt with very clearly. The best things Sri G.V.Prabhakara Murthy has done is , he has taken the example horoscope of Mrs. Indira Gandhi for all workings.

I cordially appreciate the effort of Sri G.V.Prabhakara Murthy who is teaching Astrology at Bharateeya vidya Bhavan, Bangalore. He not only studied astrology, but has worked in different parts of it. Particularly he has studied but also worked and right now teaching Jaimini Principles.

I expect many more works from Sri G.V.Prabhakara Murthy.

Sarva Sampathprada Srimata bless Sri G.V.Prabhakara Murthy and his family with good health, wealth and prosperous useful life.

Prologue

While studying a subject like astrology, it is not only essential to know the language, grammar and the subject, but also the spirit of the author with which it has been written. It is more so, with the subject like Jaimini Upadesha Sutrani.

There are 10 chapters in Brihath Parasara Hora Sara (BPHS) related to Jaimini methodology. Why should Jaimini pick up these 10 chapters only which are not in a serial order. Jaimini has achieved two purposes through it. The first-all the anomalies in BPHS have been avoided. The second –no riders are attached to any sutra. These sutras can be directly applied.

When we go through Raja yogadhyaya of BPHS carefully, it dawns that jaimini sutras are supplementary to BPHS. The study of BPHS is not complete without the study of Jaimini sutras. In Rajayogadhyaya, Sage Parasara mentions that any of the combinations from Lagna, Lagnadhipathi, Atmakaraka, Karakamsa Logna etc. are sufficient to provider Rajayoga.

The beauty of Jaimini sutras lies in the fact that it has nowhere contradicted or denied any of the priniciples laid by Maharshi Parasara. Jaimini cannot be learnt without learning the principle of Parasara. Jaimini system is supplementary to parasara system.

A number of commentaries are available now. Many people have translated the sutras both into English as well as regional languages. Hence, there is a considerable difference in understanding the sutras; elaborate explanation is given wherever different schools of thought are prevailing on the principles in the annexure. Some of the subjects like Argalas & Yogas are introduced. These concepts will be dealt in depth in the advanced studies.

With a lot of advantages, why then Jaimini system has not gained popularity? To determine chara karakas, exact position (longitudes) of the planets is essential. Earlier only the persons familiar with Graha-sputa were able to do it. Others, who depend on almanacs (panchanga) were biased towards Parasari system because by knowing planetary positions through nakshtra padas, they could erect Janma-Kundali and Navamsa-Kundalis easily, with the advent of computers and astrological software it is now easy to find the exact longitudes of planets. Other reason being that the earlier commentaries like Kalpalata, jataka Sara Sangraha etc. were not available freely. Now, most of them are available. Hence, Jaimini system is popular now a day.

This book is primarily meant for beginners. The topics are arranged in such a way to make the student to follow the subject easily. It also helps the faculty to teach the subject in a comprehensive mode.

My interest in Jaimini was kindled, when Sri Dr.S.Krishna Kumar, president Bharathiya Jyothisha Samsthan (R), Presented me Jataka Rajeeyam, a rare book on Jaimini system in Telugu, printed in 1933. Then I started collecting all the literature available on the subject. Sri Madhura Krishnamuthy Sastry was kind enough to provide me the manuscripts like Kalpalaha(by somanatha) ; Neelakanta Vyakhya and others on Jaimini Sutras. He was also kind enough to enlighten me on the subject and clarify my doubts whenever I approached him. I am very grateful to both of them.

When I approached Dr. Sagi Kamalakara Sharma, M.A (Telugu, Sanskrit, Astrology, Englishn & Philosophy), Head of the Department, Osmaina University, Hyderabad went through my book and readily accepted to write foreword. My sincere thanks to him for his kind gesture.

I am thankful to Sri C.B.R.K Sharma, Hyderabad, Sri S.N. Tekur for their valuable suggestions and my colleagues at Bharathiya vidya Bhavan for their support.

I am also thankful Sri M.C. Rangarajan, Sri k.N. Balasubramanyam. Sri N.S.Jayaram and other students who have helped me in bringing our this book.

I thank Sri M.S.Hebbar for his beautiful design of the cover page and Sri S. Sanath kumar, Ravee Screens who has taken keen interest in bringing out this book, in time.

Introduction

Parasara Hora Sara is the first authentic book on astrology written by the great Maharishi Parasara Transits is the only topic which does not find a place in this excellent book on Astrology. Jaimini system of astrology may be termed as a branch of Parasara system of astrology.

Maharishi Veda Vyasa was the son as well as the disciple of Maharishi Parasara. Veda Vyasa segregated Vedas and put them into proper. order. He had also extensively analysed Ashtadasa Puranas in hi various works.

Maharishi Veda Vyas had four disciples. They were i) Vyshampayana ii) Paila iii) Jaimini and iv) Sumantha. Each one of them propagated one out of four Vedas. Maharshi Jaimini propagated Samaveda and also authored Jaimini Sutras, Jaimini Bharatha and Purva-Mimamsa. There are many references of Jaimini topics in Bruhat Parasara ‘ Hora Sars”

. Jaimini has used sutras instead of slokas while writing the book popularly known as Jaimini Upadesa sutras’. Sutras are one of the wonders of Sanskrit language. It is shortest in form with largest meaning. Sutras are typical and direct to the point. A deep knowledge of Sanskrit is very essential to understand the true meaning of Sutras in proper perspective. Sometimes it could be possible to interpret altogether in a different meaning.

Jaimini system has its own distivctive features and appears to be very accurate in timing of the events. It avoids elaborate mathematical calculations like shadbala or vimshopakabala. It uses minimum number of divisional charts and yogas.

Jaimini has given us this wonderful branch of astrology developing certain aspects of Parasara system. The beauty of the system is it does not contradict any of the principles of Parasara system. In fact, it has depended on Parasara for calculating various lagnas and Rasi & Graha swroopaadhyas.

I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
