KAS Astrology Lessons

Krushnaji had written a series of lessons on KAS during 2000-2002 and he made them available to KAS Yahoo Group members. Mrs. Donna Quinn was kind enough to proof read the lessons and fix typos and grammar to make the lessons easily comprehensible. I am reproducing the KAS lessons here to support new KAS students. The only change I have made is to provide screen shots of charts from online KAS software which uses an improved KAS ayanamsa value than the one that students were using during 2000-2002.

Lesson 5: The Upachaya Houses

The timing event of any result is very important. For example, letís consider the case of marriage. The life partner is usually determined from the seventh house. But in research work done on at least 100 charts, it was found that in a maximum of up to 40 % of the cases, the marriages were performed in the antardasha of the lord of the fourth or the twelfth house, even if there was no involvement with the seventh house or its lord at all. There was no direct relation of these houses with the seventh house. The twelfth house is the sixth from the seventh house, and the fourth house is the tenth house from the seventh. In 15% of the cases, the marriages were performed in the antardasha of the planets situated in the fourth and twelfth house with 4 or more benefic points from the bhinnashtakavarga of that planet.
In the same case studies, the marriages of 55 % of the people having an Aries lagna were performed in the antardasha of the Moon or Jupiter (The Moon is the fourth lord and Jupiter is the ninth and the twelfth lord). The Mahadasa Lord seemed to be the least factor concerned in the timing of the event. The different signs in which these two planets were located, were also not very effective accept in some special cases. Below is a table showing the different lagnas and significators:
Out of these twelve lagnas, only in four cases did the marriage significators have lordship of the seventh house, which could be nothing more than a coincidence. These significators are highlighted in RED in the table and have dual lordship as you can see from the 2nd column in red. The also have lordship of one of the houses, either the fourth or the twelfth, along with seventh house. It is clear from the above statement that the seventh house or its lord has a lesser role in the marriage time than the other significators.
I came upon the following Slokas –

Sloka 5:

MEANING: Any planet receiving more bindus in the 1st, 6th and 10th houses in its Ashtakavarga will give benefic results as related to first house matters in its antardasa. This formula can be applied to all other houses, using each one as the first house starting point and studying the 1st, 6th and 10th houses from that point on. The lord of the third and the eleventh house also plays a key role in the event. Similarly, planets located in the 3rd and the 11th houses from the house under consideration with 4 or more benefic points in these houses from their bhinnastakwarg, also perform a key role. The third, sixth, tenth and eleventh houses are known as the Upachaya Houses and has a very important role to play in the results of these houses.
The key concept for finding the timing event for any instant of the life is based on this formula. I have tried this same principal using different houses as the starting point. Then, by figuring out the 3rd, 6th, 10th and 11th houses from that starting point, I came to the conclusion that the planet that gets the highest bindus in these houses is the significator planet that gives the results in its antardasha as it relates to the 1st house starting point.
In the previous chapter, I have given the significations of each house. In my researches, I have found that by just using these houses alone we cannot obtain accurate results. The results indicated by any house cannot be judged by the house or the planets situated in the house, or planets aspecting the house, or its lord and its position etc. (this is the system generally followed). Greater accuracy can be obtained by using the method of the Upachaya Houses. This fact will be self- explanatory when we present some examples.
It was earlier told that the Upachaya Houses are the 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 11th places from any house. They play a very important role in the result of any event. If we try to interpret the results of any house by using standard methods, we will usually get wrong results in 90 percent of the cases. However, when using the Upachaya method, the accuracy level becomes much more efficient and greatly increases itself up to 90%.
This table shows the Upachayas from every house as follows:
In the above table one will note that I have distinguished the Upachaya Houses as Main and Secondary. Secondary upchaya houses act only through their lord and the planets located in these houses (but only if they receive more than 4 points). The main upchaya houses, on the other hand, are directly involved in the outcome. More detail will be discussed later on.
Events of the life as indicated by each house and its upchaya house
Each house is allocated some event in the life of an individual. Keen observation can easily prove that the results denoted by any house are the by-product of some other house.
Suppose we take the case of children in general. Usually, this is signified by the fifth house. The birth of a child is a factor of the fifth house, along with the 12th, 2nd, 9th, and 10th. The second house denotes the family members and relatives. There is an increase in the members of the family as soon as the child is born. A newly born child also changes the relationship as the male now becomes a father and the female becomes a mother. Therefore, the status is also changed and it can be said that the 10th house is also affected by this. The ninth house also indicates continuation of the heritage and its heirs. The twelfth house indicates the mating of the male and the female, without which any child can be born through natural means (excluding test tube babies here).
So instead of looking at the fifth house first, consider the child to be the result of the twelfth house and its upchaya houses as indicated by the red house numbers below). We then see that the fifth house is the sixth from the twelfth. (as noted in BLUE). Similarly the ninth house is the tenth from the twelfth house. The second th and the tenth are three and eleven houses away from 12 . Thus, the birth of a child using the Upachaya method, is the factor of the 12th, 2nd, 5th, 9th and 10th houses.
KAS Lesson 5 chart
All the above houses play a key role in the timing of the event and must be considered. If any of these houses do not contribute, then it will be difficult to have a child. The lords of the 3rd and the 11th house from the twelfth means that the lords of the second and the tenth houses play a vital role. Similarly, any planet in the 2nd and 10th house with more than 4 points also has importance here.
In order to determine a timed event that focuses on children or childbirth, one should consider the 12th house and the upchaya houses from it.

New concept for finding the results

Do not get the following house meanings mixed up with the ones in the previous chapter. These meanings will be the equivalent of the 6th house from itself as they are being viewed from the perspective of the Upachaya Houses. In other words, think ësixth houseí when you read the first, and seventh house, when you read the second, etc.
First house: From the first house and its upchaya houses, the capacity of the person, the capability of doing oneís own business, service, line of the business, social status, category in the service etc. and the timed event of such various matters can be properly assessed.
Second house: From the second house and its upchaya houses, the marriage, the happiness or conflicts in the married life, number of marriages, unmarried state, friendships with the opposite sex and the timing events of all these matters can be judged.
(Please note that I have done much research on hundreds of charts in order to test this principle and have found it to be VERY accurate. This method can be tested for any person married or unmarried. The correctness of the chart can also be checked and the correction of the birth time can be rectified to seconds. The compatibility can also be judged for male and female charts. The proper partner can be selected by applying this method to both charts. The marriage time for both male and female should coincide.)
Third house: From the third house and its upchaya houses, the longevity and the health can be judged, along with the timing of the event.
Fourth house: From the fourth house and its upchaya houses, the luck factor, favorable or unfavorable time etc. can be judged so the time period is clear.
Fifth house: From the fifth house and its upchaya houses, the achievement of success, authority, higher post, success in elections, starting oneís own business can be judged.
Sixth house: From the sixth house and its upachaya houses, the means of earning money or a favorable period for earning can be judged.
Seventh house: From the seventh house and its upachaya houses, the sexual relationships with the opposite sex other than the marriage partner, foreign relations and bed comforts can be judged.
Eight house: From the eighth house and its upchaya houses, details about the individuality and the personality can be confirmed.
Ninth house: From the ninth house and its upchaya houses, the happiness from relations and inheritable property can be judged.
Tenth house: From the tenth house and its upchaya houses, courage, brothers and sisters, writing of books, contracts, agreements, publications etc. can be judged.
Eleventh house: From the eleventh house and its upchaya houses, anything regarding landed property, home comforts and oneís own house can be judged.
Twelfth house: From the twelfth house and its upachaya houses, any matters revolving around children can be properly assessed.
A more thorough range was covered on the meanings of the houses in the last chapter and by using this method in this way, the whole life can be assessed with a detailed amount of accuracy. Remember that these significations are the same as indicated by the sages for the sixth house from these houses!
