Dasa Bhukti Periods | Dasa Bhukti Calculations | Vimshottari Dasha

Dasa Bhukti Periods are planetary period reveals the planets ruling at particular time. Most events indicated by Mahadasa happen in appropriate Antardasa.

Dasa Bhukti Periods or the planetary periods indicate the good or bad effects period are produced according to their placement by Moon Sign (Rasi), House (Bhava), Combinations (Yogas or Raja Yogas) or Aspects (Drishti).

Dasa Bhukti Periods

Dasa Bhukti Periods balance is used to determine the remaining period of Mahadasa and Bhukti at the time of birth.

The Dasa balance is calculated according to the length of the Moon in the Birth Nakshatra / Birth Star / Janma Nakshatra at the time of birth.

Dasa Bhukti Periods – Vimshottari Dasha

Vimshottari Dasa is the most important Dasa of Vedic astrology, which is a cycle of 120 years based on the maximum possible life span for an individual.

Each of the seven planets and the two lunar nodes (Navagraha) has its own period or Mahadasa in the cycle.

The Vimshottari dasha is linked to the system of Nakshatras or Lunar mansions by the fact that each of the Navagraha is the lord (or ruler) of three of the twenty seven nakshatras which together with the position of the moon.

Vimshottari Dasha assumes that the maximum duration of life of an individual human being is 120 years which is the aggregate duration of all nine planetary periods.

Ketu 7 Years, Venus 20 Years, Sun 6 Years, Moon 10 Years, Mars 7 Years, Rahu 18 Years,Jupiter 16 Years, Saturn 19 Years and Mercury 17 Years in the order of their operation.

dasa bhukti periods

Each dasha is controlled by one of the nine planets and the quality and relative benevolence of each period is determined by the condition and position of that planet in the Natal Chart / Birth Chart.

There are nine planets or grahas which severally rule the nine dashas, the seven planets, the north node-Rahu, and the south node-Ketu of the Moon.

Events bestows in the sub-periods of indicative planets. Therefore, it is very important that we understand the method of analysing the Dasa Bhukti Periods results.

Though various types of conditional planetary periods are available, Vimshottari dasa system has been mentioned for general applications.

Based on the longitude of the Moon in the natal charts, the balance of operational Vimsottari Mahadasa is calculated.

The order of the main periods (dasa) under the Vimsottari dasa system is the dasa of the Sun followed by the Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ketu and Venus.

Dasa Bhukti Periods

Each Mahadasa is subdivided into planetary periods called Antra-dasa or Bhukti. Each antra-dasa is further divided into Paryantra-dasa which run their course in the same order as the mahadasa and with the same proportional length.

For example, the first bhukti of Mahadasa Ketu is Ketu/Ketu, the second is Ketu/Venus, the third Ketu/Sun and so on. These subdivisions allow a much more detailed examination of the influence of each mahadasha, and a much clearer indication of what events are expected to occur and when.
