Kala Sarpa Yoga


We don’t find anything regarding Kal Sarpa Yoga in Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra, Jaiminisutram, Brihat Jatakam, Uttar Kalamrita, Phaladeepika, Jatak Parijat, Sarbartha Chintamani, Bhabartharatnakar, Jatakabharanam, Sanketnidhi, Bhabakutuhalam, Manasagari Paddhati etc. don’t speak anything about this Kal Sarpa Yoga.

The sloka he quoted is as under:-

agre rähuù ante ketu sarbe madhyagatä grahäù|
yogam kälasarpäkhyam nåpa çasya binäçanam||

-the meaning is quite clear. If rahu is at front & ketu is at last while all other planets are in between, then this combination is called Kal Sarpa Yoga & results into death of king of destruction of grains.

Brihat Jatakam by Varahamihira wrote about Sarpa Yoga, the condition of which is Sun, Mars & Saturn in kendras while the rest of the planets in houses other than kendras, & this combination is mentioned in the chapter of nabhasa Yoga of Brihat Jatakam, Saravali by KalyanVarma,  We can deduce that Kal Sarpa Yoga has no reference in classical texts, nor supported by any astrological texts, because Maharshi Parasar, Jaimini, Varahamihira, Ramanujacharya, Kalidas, Baidyanath Dixit, Benkateswar Daivajna, Mantreswar, Chuntiraj or any famous astrologers did not accept this yoga.

Results of Rahu & Ketu

In his book Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra, Maharshi Parasara has told us how to analyse the results of Rahu & Ketu-

yad yad bhävagato rähuù ketuçca janane nåëäm|
yad yad bhäbeçasaàyuktastat falaà pradiçedalam||

Rahu & ketu will give results according to their houses they are placed & according to the conditions the lord of those houses that are placed in a given chart.

But however there are 12 types of Kal Sarpa Yoga as enumerated by other astrologers, which will be analysed later.
