MANDI

Its role in predictive astrology


A GLIMPSE

Due importance is given in Kerala to Mandi while


casting a chart with other planets.
Mandi is calculated and marked in Rasi chart
It has been awarded the qualities of regular
planet, but it is considered as a satellite
All the Panchangas in Kerals and South
Karnataka show the sign where Mandi is placed
for each day and night

Mandi is the son of Saturn. Considered as


more malefic than any other malefic
The appearance of Mandi is described as
Long, Dirty, Very Cruel, and Horrible is
appearance
The shape of Mandi is like a snake.
Mandi has 5 faces, big teeth & red eyes.

Through Mandi is described as a planet, it


is not a planet or a point in the Zodiac
Mandi is a minute part, a particular
MOMENT, IN THE NEVER ENDING TIME

MANDI DESTROYS EVERYTHING

Calculating Mandi position


The calculation of Mandi position and
Gulika is
Not being discussed herewith
The mathematical calculations are dealt in
Shloka 6th
Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra by
Maharshi Parashara
From shlokas 66 to 69

It is very common to see astrologers using


Gulika and Mandi as one and same
Sage Mantreswara too treats them
synonymously
It is also a common practice to say that
Uttarakalamrita, ascribed to Kalidasa makes a
distinction between Mandi and Gulika
However translators differ on this aspect;
PSShastry says the author of Uttarakalamrita
treats the two entities as one while SS Sareen
differs

Whatever may be the dispute, in the


Prashna charts, Gulika is used extensively
It occupies a place of prominence, almost
deciding the fate of prashna at the first
instance itself

ROLE OF MANDI
Mandi plays a vital role in all spheres of
Astrology from birth to death and salvation
Mandi spoils all the houses he occupies
Mandi is benefic in the 10th & 11th house.
Planets conjoining Mandi loses it benefic
powers and turns malefic
If Saturn aspects or joins Mandi, it fortifies
its malefic powers. It gives extra power to
Mandi, to do more harm.

MANDI IN MUHURTHA
Mandi occupied Rasi in Muhurtha is not
acceptable
Mandi occupied Rasi is accepted in
muhurtha only after the rise of Mandi, if
there is a benefic planet there
In Kerala Astrologers also use Mandi to
ascertain whether lagna is correct or not in
a rasi kundali of a birth chart

and tragic

wandering without moksha
