Timing Death:
Maraka Dasa & Bhukti:
Primary Determinant:
1. The planets, especially malefics, associating with the 2nd and the 7th lords.
2. The 2nd and the 7th lords.
3. The occupants, particularly malefics, of the 2nd and 7th houses.

Secondary Determinant:
1. Benefic planets in association with the 2nd and 7th lords.
2. Lords of 3rd and 8th.
3. The lord of the 3rd or 8th house associating with the 2nd or the 7th lord.

Tertiary Determinant:
1. Saturn in conjunction, aspect or association with any of the primary or secondary determinants of
death.
2. The lords of the 6th or the 8th house.
3. The weakest planet in the horoscope.

Chidra Graha Dasa


The following are called the Chidra - grahas and the strongest of them can cause death in his period:
1. The 8th lord.
2. The planet occupying the 8th house.
3. The planet aspecting the 8th house.
4. The lord of 22nd Decanate.
5. The planet in association with the 8th lord.
6. The bitter enemy of the 8th lord.

⇒ The 8th house is the house of the life and if afflicted terminates life. If the 8th lord is in the 6th,
8th or the 12th house, death of the person can occur,
1. in the dasa and bhukti of the 8th lord or
2. in the dasa of the lord of the sign occupied by Saturn in the sub-period of the 8th lord, or
3. in the dasa of the 8th lord and the bhukti of the 9th lord

Transits:
1. When Saturn Passes through the house occupied by the 8th or the 12th lord from the lagna, Death
occurs. Passage of Saturn through these houses or their trines reckoned from any other house result
in destruction of that house.
2. Saturn’s transit of the sign or the trine occupied by the lord of the 22nd Decanate or Mandi brings
about death.
3. When Saturn passes through the rasi and Navamsa or their trine obtained from subtracting the
longitude of Saturn from that of Mandi, Death is likely.

5
4. Saturn’s transit through the sign or the trine obtained from the sum of longitudes of 6th, 8th and 12th
lords brings death.
5. Saturn’s transit of the sign as far removed from Mandi as Mandi is from the 8th lord is also a fateful
transit.
6. Add the longitudes of the five upagrahas headed by Dhuma, and note the Decanate of the resulting
sign. When Saturn arrives this Decanate of the sign, the death is indicated.
7. Add the longitudes of Mandi and Saturn. Multiply the sum by 9. Note the resulting sign and
Navamsa. When Saturn arrives this sign and Amsa, the event may take place.
8. Find the weakest of the three sets of planets, viz.(1) Lords of the 8th houses counted from the Asdt.
and the Moon (2) Lord of the 22nd Decanate (3) The Moon and Mandi. Note the Navamsa occupied
by that planet. When Saturn arrives at this Amsa or its trine, death is likely.
9. Note the sign which happens to be the Navamsa occupied by the lord of the Asdt. See how far it is
removed from Aries; count so many signs from the 8th lord. When Saturn comes to this sign, death is
likely.
10. For the Night birth death is likely during the transit of Saturn through a trine of the sign occupied by
Mandi at birth; and for day birth it is 7th house from above.
11. Again for the Night birth the event may occur when Saturn passes through the sign and Amsa
occupied by the Moon or Mandi; and for Day birth, when she passes through the sign and Amsa
occupied by the Sun or the 5th, 7th or 9th from that.
12. Count the distance of Mandi from that of 8th lord in signs and count as many signs from Mandi.
When Saturn arrives at that sign, death occur.
13. Jupiter’s transit through the sign occupied by the 8th lord or its trine.
14. Jupiter’s transit through the sign or the trine obtained from the sum of longitudes of Lagna, the Sun
and Mandi causes death.
15. When Jupiter crosses the rasi indicated by the sum of the longitudes of Jupiter and Rahu or through
its trines, death can be expected.
16. When the Sun comes to the sign and the Amsa obtained from the longitudes of Mandi and the Asdt,
death may happen.
17. When Sun transits the Dwadasamsa he occupies in Rasi or the Navamsa occupied by the 8th lord or
the Navamsa occupied by Lagna lord or the Trines of any one of these signs, death may be
apprehended.
18. Passage of Sun through the 6th, the7th or the12th house from Venus indicates death.
19. The solar month of death would be identical with the sign occupied by the 8th lord.
20. When the Moon crosses the Rasi or Navamsa by the 8th lord or the Sun or their trines, death is likely.
21. Moon’s passage through the sign indicated by the sum of Mandi and Moon.
22. Moon’s passage through the sign occupied by the lord of 22nd Decanate reckoned from the Moon or
through the trines of these houses.
23. Transit of the Moon through the Lagna, the 8th or the 12th house also causes death.
24. Find out the Navamsa, Dwadasamsa and the Decanate occupied by Mandi. The transit of Jupiter
through the sign indicated by the Navamsa; of Saturn through that of Dwadasamsa and the Sun
through the one or its trine indicated by the Decanate indicates death. The Lagna denoted by the Sum
of the Lagna, the Moon and the Mandi indicates the time of Death.
25. The Asdt. at the time of death will be the sign obtained from the sum of the longitudes of the Asdt.,
Mandi and the Moon.

Place of Death:
1. If the 8th house is a movable sign, death occur in a foreign place or country i.e., far from the home; if
it is fixed sign, death takes place in home; if it is a common sign then death takes place nearby home
or way to home.
2. Place of death is indicated by lord of the sign occupied by the lord rising Navamsa as follows:
• The Sun - Temple, Forest or a Religious institution.
• The Moon - A fertile place with green vegetation and garden.
• Mars - Hospital, Operation room, Special wards.
• Mercury - Playground, Sports club, Gambling den.
• Jupiter - Theatre house, Public office, Court, Lawyer’s house.
• Venus - Rich flats and apartments, Nursing homes.
• Saturn - Dirty places and Dens of Prostitutes.
Planets occupying the Lagna, or the rising Navamsa or the Lagna lord or the planets aspecting the Lagna
or the Lagna lord have their say on the place of death
