Ashtakvarga- The Crown jewel of Vedic astrology

The "Ashtakvarga" is recognized as an outstanding system of prediction among the several systems advocated in the standard works on Vedic astrology. It has been commended as the best and the most indispensable key, so that all predictions have to be made only after a consideration of the Ashtakvarga. The system appears to have originated in the very remote past. Acharya Varahmihira (circa 500 A.D.) mentions it rather casually, as if it had already become an integral part of the standard teaching on astrology in his day, not requiring a very detailed exposition. It is quite likely, therefore, that the system originated some centuries before Varah, perhaps a couple of centuries before Christ. Generation after generation of astrologers will remain eternally indebted to the great seers who devised the system of "Ashtakvarga" which accomplishes the complex task of handling the intricate web of matrix generated by interactive planetary positions, with admirable aesthetics and commendable ease. This system has a certain originality parallel of which is not found in any other system, anywhere else in the world. "Ashtakvarga" system presents a scope of departure from its traditional applications to the "research" minded Vedic Astrologer. It can be subjected to many innovative applications suited to the modern context. Its use in 'Argha Prakaran' or 'Financial Astrology is one such area in which innovations are waiting to be explored (See the article "Ashtakvarga and the Financial Astrology").

The use of Ashtakvarga system by the wisest of astrologer was almost limited in pre-computer era. While calculating it manually, if one error crept in, one could not make use of Ashtakvarga. With the appearance of computers, some good astrological softwares also dawned on global horizon since 1982. The preparation of complex tables of Ashtakvarga (up to shodhya pinda) was now a matter of few seconds. But unfortunately, no one tried to develop the "APPLICATION PART OF ASHTAKVARGA" which could help an astrologer to make the gross, subtle, subtler and subtlest uses of Ashtakvarga, of which this system is capable of. "Ashtakvarga" has been called 'Nishchayaansh" (or The Decisive part) of astrology. It really deserved a better attention from software developers.


 

The only known Ashtakvarga based predictive Jyotish software is 'Vjyotish-exl', developed by Shyam S. Kansal. "Ashtakvarga" is the backbone of this system and innovative reports allow the astrology scholars to analyze transits at micro level. Shyam S. Kansal has done some pioneering work on Ashtakvarga. Read the testimonials of well-known Jyotish scholars for his out-standing work on Ashtakvarga. Feedbacks and reactions of thousands of Vjyotish users, spread around the globe, testify for the efficacy of Ashtakvarga system.
