Nabhasa yogas ||21||
1Nabhasa yogas. Yavanas have explained 1800 kinds of Nabhasa Yogas, out of which I detail below 32.
2-4Kinds of nabhasa yoga. The following are the 32 Nabhasa Yogas Nau, Chatra, Koota, Chaapa, Sringataka, Vajra, Damini, Pasa, Veena, Kamala, Musala, Vapi, Hala, Sara, Samudra, Chakra, Maala. Sarpa, Ardha Chandra, Yava, Kedara, Gada, Pakshi, Yupa, Yuga, Sakata, Soola, Danda, Rajju, Sakthi, Nala and Gola. The Asraya Yogas, viz. Musala, Rajju and Nala are dealt with by Acharya Manitha.
5-6Gola, Yuga, Soola, Pasa, Veena (Vallaki), Kedara and Damini arc the seven Sankhya Yogas. The two Dala Yogas viz. Sarpa (Bhujanga) and Mala are explained by Parasara Maharishi. Savitracharya dealt with remaining 20 Yogas.
7One born with an Asraya will obtain the good effects, viz., happiness, advantages and qualities, provided there is no other kind of (Nabhasa) Yoga present in the horoscope. If other (Nabhasa) Yoga is present in addition to an Asraya Yoga, then the effects of Asraya Yoga do not come to pass, but the other (Nabhasa) Yoga prevails.
8-10Effect of akriti, sankhya and dala yogas. One born in Akriti Yoga will be satisfied with his own fortunes, will earn through a king, be dear to king and be famous. Should there be a Sankhya Yoga, the native will be happy only with others’ wealth, will live only through others help and be always not peaceful. A native with Dala Yoga will sometimes enjoy his own fortune, yet sometimes that of others, will pick up the fruits thrown on the ground by others, be sometimes happy and sometimes sorrowful.
11Nauka, koota, chatra and chapa yogas. If the seven planets occupy continuous Houses starting from the Ascendant and the other three Angles, Yogas called Nauka, Koota, Chatra and Chapa are, respectively, formed.
12Yupa, sara, sakthi and danda yogas. If the seven planets occupy for continuous Houses counted from the Ascendant and its Angles, the resultant Yogas are known, as Yupa, Sara (or Ishu-arrow), Sakthi and Danda, respectively.
13Ardha chandra and gada yogas. If the seven planets occupy continuously seven Houses commencing from a House, which is not angular to the Ascendant, the Yoga produced is known, as Ardha Chandra (Ardha Sasi) Yoga. Gada Yoga forms, when all the seven planets occupy two successive Angles from the Ascendant.
14Vajra, yava, padma and vapi yogas. If benefics occupy the Lagna and 7th, while malefics are in the 4th and 10th Vajra Yoga is formed. Conversely, if malefics are in the Lagna and 7th, while 4th and 10th are occupied by benefics, Yava Yoga is produced. If all the planets are disposed in four kendras, Padma (Kamala) Yoga is formed. Should the seven planets be relegated either to Apoklima Houses (3, 6, 9 and 12th), or to Panapharas (2, 5, 8 and 11 Houses), Vapi Yoga is formed.
15Sakata, vihaga, hala and sringataka yogas. If all planets occupy only the Ascendant and the 7th House, Sakata Yoga is formed. Similar participation of all the planets in the 4th and 10th Houses constitutes Vihaga (Pakshi) Yoga. Should all the planets be in mutual Trines, avoiding the Ascendant, Hala Yoga is formed. All planets relegated only to the Ascendant and its Trines give rise to Sringataka Yoga.
16Chakra and samudra yogas. Should all the planets occupy alternative Rasis commencing from the Lagna, Chakra Yoga is formed. If these occupy alternative Rasis from the 2nd onwards, Samudra Yoga is formed.
17Thus, I have explained the twenty different Akriti Yogas. Now, I explain the Asraya Yogas, as per the schools of thought of senior Garga etc.
18Asraya and dala yogas. Should all the planets be in Dual Rasis, Nala Yoga is formed. Similarly, if these are in Fixed Rasis, Musala Yoga takes place and in Movable Rasis Rajju Yoga is formed. All Angles occupied exclusively by benefics cause Maala Yoga, while malefics in all Angles produce Sarpa Yoga. These two are Dala Yogas.
19Sankhya yogas. If all the seven planets occupy one Rasi, Gola Yoga is formed. Similarly in 2 Rasis-Yuga Yoga, In 3 Rasis-Sula Yoga, in 4 Rasis-Kedara Yoga, in 5 Rasis-Pasa Yoga, in 6 Rasis-Damini and in 7 Rasis-Veena (Vallaki) Yoga.
