In human life, the birth of children occupies a very prominent place. The parents find their own
image in their children and see the progression of their lineage though the future of their
children. The mother has to pass through nine months of grooming of the infant, with all it takes,
which a mother can better understand and the results are still uncertain. Many of them are born
still, many of them are born with incapability and many get eradicated from their very start of
journey. Every thing has a very profound impact on the parents and their future.

Prognosticating the sex of the unborn child has been a matter of concern in the recent years,
where the foetus are killed when they are substantially grown and had their identity as a human
child inside the womb. If the sex of the child is not what the parents want, they were brutally
extricated. Thanks to the medical science that it can’t say anything about the sex of the child
before it grows up substantially and help the parents to decide in advance whether or not to have
a baby.

This is where Jyotish comes to rescue. Because it can see the path much ahead of the time, it can
forewarn the parents about the future possibilities and help them in making a conscious decision.
The more important thing of all is that Jyotish can give remedies, when it judges the possibilities
are more negative than positive. Such remedies not only eradicate the root of the problem, but
also prepare the parents to boldly face the impending dangers.

In the forthcoming portions, we shall study, how to prognosticating the birth and life of the
children and the remedies to address the impending difficulties and danger to the parents and

Timing the Birth of child
1. Dasa: The Dasa planet should have benefic argala on the “Saptamsa Lagna lord” or

obstruct malefic argala on the same. If the Dasa planet has rasi drsti on the Saptamsa
Lagna lord, then also there will be birth of a child (COVA, Page 184)

2. Antardasa: The antardasa planet should associate with the lord of the child or placed in
trine, 7th or 12th from it. This is also possible, if there is a strong argala of the antardasa
planet on the dasa lord of the child. (COVA, Page185). The planet having argala on the
lord of the child can also show the antardasa of birth of the child.

3. Pratyantar: The pratyantar dasa planet is normally of a planet in trines to the saptamsa
Lagna who invariably contributes the Lagna of the child. This can be confirmed from the
Narayana Dasa.

COVA, Page 177: Thus the dasa lord takes the lord of the Saptamsa Lagna to the
Antardasa lord who brings the Particular child. This yoga results in the childbirth

In case there is a parivartana of the Saptamsa Lagna lord with the lord of another
house, the Lagna temporarily shifts to another house and the pratyantar should be
judged from the temporary Lagna (COVA, 195, 196). However the Lagna of the child is to be
judged form the trines to the Actual Saptamsa Lagna.

Among all the trines which can show the Lagna of the child, the one who is placed in the Kendra
to the Lord of the child shows the highest possibility (COVA 196). Among the planets who are
placed in the sign determining the Lagna, the strongest among them shall determine the Lagna.

Rasi of the Child
The moon sign of the child is generally the quadrant or trine to the Saptamsa Moon.

Remedial Measures from the Malevolence of Grahas
1. Maitreya said. O Venerable Sage! Please describe for the good of mankind the remedial
measures for appeasement of the malevolent Grahas.

2. The Sage replied. I have already described the names and characteristic features and qualities
of the Grahas. Joys and sorrows of all the creatures in the world are dependent on these Grahas.
Therefore persons desirous of peace, wealth and prosperity, rainfall, good health and longevity
should worship the Grahas (by prayers, recitation of Mantras, charity etc.).
3-5. For the purpose of worshipping them the idols of planets should be made up of following
Sūrya, copper
Candr, Sphatika
Mangal, red sandal wood
Budh, gold
Guru, gold
Śukr, silver
Śani, iron
Rahu glass
Ketu bell metal

Alternatively the sketches of all the above Grahas should be drawn in the colours, belonging to
them, on a piece of cloth by sandal etc. and they should be placed in their own directions.

Contemplation on Various Grahas:
 Contemplate of Sūrya well adorned with two arms, seated on a lotus, with a lotus flower

in one hand, red-coloured, like lotus and aboard a chariot of seven horses.
 Contemplate of Candr white-coloured, dressed in white robes, with two arms, carrying a

mace in one hand and a Vara in the other, adorned with white-coloured ornaments and
aboard a chariot of ten horses.

 Contemplate of Mangal with a red necklace, dressed in red-coloured robes, with four
arms, carrying Shakti, Shoola, Gada (mace) and Vara and mounted on a lamb.

 Contemplate of Budh with a yellow-coloured garland, dressed in yellow robes, with four
arms, carrying a sword, a shield, a mace and Vara, mounted on a lion.

 Contemplate of Guru, as yellow complexion and Śukr of fair complexion, both with four
arms, carrying a Danda, Akshasutra, Kamandal and Vara.

 Contemplate of Śani with the lustre, like that of Indraneela, with four arms, carrying
Shoola, bow, arrow and Vara, mounted on a donkey.

 Contemplate of Rahu with a hideous face, with four arms, carrying a sword, a shield, a
Shoola and a Vara, blue-coloured and mounted on a lion.

 There are many Ketus. All of them are of smoky colour, with two arms, carrying a mace
and a Vara, with a hideous face and mounted on a donkey.

All the idols should be so made, that they are 108 fingers tall by one’s own fingers.
Notes. Such a measurement is taken from the middle finger.

15-16. Dedicate with devotion to the Grah concerned the flowers and garments of the colour,
belonging to him, sandal, Deep, Guggul etc., his metal and the grains, dear to him and distribute
all these things to Brahmins to appease the Grah.

17-20. The Mantras of all the Grahas and the prescribed number of their recitation are given
below. The recitation of Mantras should be done after worshipping the Grahas, as indicated in
verses 15-16. Grah Mantra prescribed number: Sūrya 7000, Candr 11000, Mangal 11000, Budh
9000, Guru 19000, Śukr 16000, Śani 23000, Rahu 18000, Ketu 17000.

21-22. Havan should be performed with Aak, Palash, Khair, Chirchiri, Pipal, Goolar, Shami wood
pieces, Doob and Kush, for Sūrya, Candr, Mangal, Budh, Guru, Śukr, Śani, Rahu and Ketu,
respectively, mixed with honey, Ghī, curd, or milk. The number of offerings to the sacred fire is
108, or 28.
23-24. To appease Sūrya and the other eight Grahas Brahmins should be fed with (cream) of rice
cooked with jaggery, rice cooked in milk, Havishya, paddy cooked in milk, curd and rice, rice
with Ghī, rice cooked with powder of sesame seeds, rice cooked with meat, rice cooked with
cereals, respectively.

25. To appease Sūrya and other Grahas the things to be given in charity are cow with calf, conch,
bullock, gold, robes, horse, black cow, weapons made of iron and goat, respectively.

26-27. The Grah, who is the cause of adverse effects to a person at any time, should be handled by
worship and appeasing (of the benevolent ones), because Brahma has blessed the Grahas with the
boon “Do to the persons, who worship you”. And the development and progress and downfall of
the people and the creation and destruction of the universe are all under the administration and
authority of the Grahas. Therefore they are most venerable.
