Caturashraya: Houses of Protection

Caturashraya: Houses of Protection

This is a part of the article series on the topic of the Bhava classification, and it is an excerpt from the third chapter named Bhava: The houses of Visti Larsen’s book Jyotisha Fundamentals – My Master’s words (this book is now available as E-book on all Amazon platforms).

The fifth house from any house is its shelter or ashraya i.e. the fifth house from Lagna shows the shelter of the native and indicates the children or followers who will take on and continue the native’s goals and ideals in life.

As the fourth house shows one’s home, the shelter of the same becomes very important. The shelter of the fourth house is the eighth, being the fifth from the fourth. Hence, the fourth and eighth houses become caturashraya in the chart.

Dusthana: Houses of Suffering

Dusthana: Houses of Suffering

Dusthana houses

Among the twelve houses, there are three, which cause suffering to the native, due to the effects of past births. Maharishi Parashara calls these houses Du houses; the present nomenclature knows them as Du – sthana or dusthana.

These houses are:

  • Sixth (sins/weaknesses, strife, punishment, enmity, fights, arguments, battles)
  • Eighth (evil karma, past life mistakes/wrong doings, death, shock, sorrow)
  • Twelfth (loss, theft, secret enemies, expenses)

The sixth and eighth houses both become important when diseases are concerned, among which the sixth shows diseases arising from own weaknesses, while the eighth shows the long term diseases and trials arising from the wrong doings in the past births.

The twelfth house indicates losses needed to release one from one’s past debts, which could be forced away from the native, provided the native is not prepared to give. The people who cause this loss act as secret enemies or thieves. From a positive angle, the twelfth house can give good expenses to charitable organizations and similar causes.

DASHA MATCHING OR DASHA KUTA FOR COUPLES with VISTI LARSEN (4/4)

Daśā is the study of time and thus also our search for Mahakāla. This Mahakāla is the origin of time and existed before time began. When did our time begin? Does it end, and when? When is a good time or bad time? All these are the study of daśā.

The last part of the Daśā Chidra series: Daśā Matching or Daśā Kuta for couples. Which Daśā system is to be used as well as how to apply this knowledge is taught through the example charts.
