In Brahat Parashar Hora Shastra forty types of Dashas are discussed but only
Vimshotri, Asthothri and yogini are in actual use. However, only vimshotri Dasha
is mostly used by the astrologers. In these Dasha systems Antardasha, partayantr
dasha, sukshma and pran dashas are discussed. In these dashas the book refers to
the Shiva’s worship for removing malefic effect of the planets. Here we would
discuss some of the salient points for the use of our readers.
1. During the mahadasha of Sun, if Sun is giving malefic effect in its
Antardasha then to check this effect Mahamritunjaye yantra/mantra to be used.
This checks all evil effects of the Sun and the Sun god bestows wishes on him.
In the same manner during the mahadasha of Saturn and Ketu, worship of
Mahamritunjaye is recommended.
2. If the native is having the mahadasha of Moon and Antardasha of Jupiter and
the yoga is not good, then the native will have premature death. Then the native
is recommended to worship lord Shiva with his sahasrnam (thousand names) and
Shiva Yantras. During the Saturn Antardasha the native is likely to fell ill.
Mahamritunjaye yantra is recommended as a remedy for it. During the Moon dasha
and Venus or Sun Antardasha Rudra worship or Shiva worship is recommended.
3. Mahamritunjaye yantra is useful when Saturn, Mars is enjoined, in opposition
or in aspect to each other in a birth chart or in transit to avoid any accident
or accidental death.
