Rath S Tripod Of Life Principle

Sun, Moon and lagna form the “tripod of life”. Parasara clearly said that we should analyze all charts with respect to the positions of Sun, Moon and lagna. He advised drawing Sudarsana chakra with the innermost chakra representing the houses with respect to lagna (body), next chakra representing the houses with respect to Moon (mind) and the outermost chakra representing the houses with respect to Sun (soul).

The results experienced due to soul (Sun) last long and change slowly. The results experienced due to mind (Moon) last shorter and change fast. The results experienced due to body (lagna) change even faster.

Sun is an important reference point in rasi and divisional charts when judging the results of a mahadasa. Moon is an important reference point when judging the results of an antardasa. Lagna is an important reference point when judging the results of a pratyantardasa.

If a planet takes part in a Ravi yoga (solar combination), it gives the results of the yoga in its mahadasa. If a planet takes part in a Chandra Yoga (lunar combination), it gives the results of the yoga in its antardasas. If a planet takes part in other yogas (e.g. a Raja Yoga), it gives the results of the yoga primarily in its pratyantardasas.

In addition, dasa lord can be taken as a reference point when interpreting antardasas.
