Antidotes for evils
1(Parasara said to Maitreya) I have described to you the evils at birth, now I narrate the antidotes to such evils as well by considering which the learned astrologer should speak of the native’s auspicious and inauspicious effects.
2If even one among Mercury, Jupiter and Venus happens to be placed in a Kendra House (1, 4, 7, 1 Oare Kendra houses) the combination destroys all.
3A single but strong Jupiter in the Lagna or Ascendant has the ability to destroy all evils just as a single reverential obeisance to Lord Shiva can destroy all sins.
4Just as Lord Shiva, the holder of bow destroyed the demon Tripura, the Lord of the Lagna or Ascendant has the capability of destroying all evils provided that he is strongly placed in Kendra (1 /4/7 /10).
5If the birth time falls in the Shukla Paksha (the bright half of the month) during night and the Ascendant is aspected by benefics, it causes the destruction of all evils and similar effect is produced if the birth time falls in the Krishna Paksha (the dark half of the month) during day time and the Lagna or Ascendant is aspected by benefics.
6If the Child is born in the Libra Ascendant and the Sun is placed in the Vyaya Sthan (i.e. the 12th House) it will have long life and will live for 100 years.
7When Mars and Jupiter are placed together or Mars has the aspect of Jupiter, the combination proves auspicious for the native’s mother after destroying all the evils.
8When malefics situated in the 4th and the 10th Houses happen to be hemmed by benefics and benefics fall in the Kendra or angles (4-7-10) or in Trikona
9In the case of malefics having been placed between benefics and benefics having gone in Kendras or Trikonas (angles or trines) the combination destroys the evils soon and the Bhava or House concerned also does not yield evil effects.
