Understanding Past life astrology, Karma Phala, and Karma Yoga astrologically
“Avashyam anubhoktavyam kruta karma shubhashubham”
which means, one has to experience the effects of karma in any case whether it is part of good or bad actions. Karma Phalas act like Newton’s third law of motion which clearly says that,
“To every Action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”.
Karmaphala or the result of our actions equally works like newton third law of the motion and same are equally powerful, either we do good or bad karma in any birth or life. All our actions and work in society acts like an arrow shot. Once it is shot from the bow, there is no chance to recall it in any case. Karma Phala or cause or effects work in the same way, so everyone has to be very cautious and one should always think before any action.
Karmas are majorly classified into three major categories. Dridha, Adridha & Dridh-Adridha karmas or Uddishya, Anuddhishya & Uddishyanuddhishya karmas.
According to our Hindu philosophy, it is based on the Karma & reincarnation theory. Without understanding the twin theory of Karma and Re-incarnation no one can able to follow or decode divisional charts.
What is the Natal Chart all about?
Natal Chart is all about the Prarabdha Karmas that we had performed in any many of the birth and that we have to face in in this birth, where Planetary placements of Retrograde planets, Malefic in trik Bhavas, and affliction to the Karka planets via nodes shows what our major Prarabdha that we have to experience without getting any redemption from it, where as Fixed signs are more rigid in nature as there is no pran Vayu in fixed signs, where Dual signs are totally blessings of Vishnu and Chara rashis shows the Blessings of creation or bramha.If we look deeply, Dharma Trikonas in the D1 chart shows what are our Total sanchit karmas of the past which has good karmic part bag in it from the total portion of the karma and that can come at any moment of the life in Dashas, Antar Dasha and in transits.
All the Divisional chart shows Root cause of the Past Karma and shows subtle reasoning behind any karma that what we had performed in past and also shows what we have to do in near future, whereas D9, D3, D10, and D60 are the root houses that exactly speaks about the Karma and portion of its phala from the past life.
Whereas, Drekkana (D3) and Navamsa (D9) are the, most important Divisional charts after Shashty-amsa chart in Vedic Astrological Strength system. Whereas, Drekkana / Dreshkana means a sign which is equally divided into three equal portions of the 10 degrees majorly in 1/3 of a sign equal to 10 degrees, which means there are three Drekkana in each sign rules nature of the Sign.
1. Parashara Drekkana2. Jagannath Drekkana
3. Somanath Drekkana
4. Privritti-traya Drekkana
This is the most widely and commonly used Drekkana chart in Vedic astrology used for highlighting information on the siblings, talents, courage, valour, complexion, personality and trait of the native. Parashara Drekkana is used to know vital information on the sibling of a person and analyzing all matters related to co-borns and issues.
This is Major Drekkana chart which gives deep-rooted information on karma and phala of the previous life of a person. This Chart should be used and analyzed along with the D-60.
Somnath Drekkana is used to know about Hidden knowledge on the sexual drive of a native and it also used for analyzing attitude of a person towards the sexual matters and his libido.
This Drekkana chart is used for understanding initiatives and efforts of the person for achieving goals and motives.
Among all, Jagannath drekkana (D3) is a most important chart to know about the Karma Phala, Karma Yoga or fruits of your actions either from the Past life or for the current birth.Fruits of actions could come in any form or by anything, either in a form of relationships or in any activity we do in society but before going deep to understand Karama and its phala from Jagannath Drekkana, we must need to understand What is Karma Phala, Karma yoga, and fruits of our karma (Actions) we had done in any of birth.
First of all, we need to understand what is karam phala and how it is linked with our past life actions and karma phala.
Understanding Karma Phala, Work, and Modes of actions according to Bhagwad Geeta
BG 2.47: You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, nor be attached to inaction.
This is an extremely popular verse of the Bhagavad Gita, It offers deep insight into the proper spirit of work. The verse gives four primary instructions regarding the science of work:
1) Do your duty, but do not concern yourself with the results.
2) The fruits of your actions are not for your enjoyment.
3) Even while working, give up the pride of doership.
4) Do not be attached to inaction.
As per the Article Need, i am only Highlighting first part to understand The meaning of Karam or actions or what is work in society :
Do your duty, but do not concern yourself with the results.
We have the right to do our duty, but the results are not dependent only upon our efforts. A number of factors come into play in determining the results—our efforts, destiny (our past karmas), the will of God, the efforts of others, the cumulative karmas of the people involved, the place and situation (a matter of luck), etc. Now if we become anxious for results, we will experience anxiety whenever they are not according to our expectations.
So Shree Krishna advises Arjun to give up concern for the results and instead focus solely on doing a good job.
The fact is that when we are unconcerned about the results, we are able to focus entirely on our efforts, and the result is even better than before.
In the Next Verse, Shiri Krishna is advocating about the necessity of the actions or work that we have to perform in any case that we cannot avoid or move away from it.
BG 18.11: For the embodied being, it is impossible to give up activities entirely. But those who relinquish the fruits of their actions are said to be truly renounced.
Shree Krishna clearly saying that the state of complete inactivity is impossible for the embodied being.No, one can stay away from any sort of actions and work.one has to perform every sort of actions in any case. However, Shree Krishna states here that if one can give up attachment to the fruits of actions, it is considered perfect renunciation.
From all what we have found ultimate goal or motive of any soul is Self-realization from all sort of Karam yogas or spiritual paths, which are majorly discussed in the Bhagavadgita in most of the chapter and it is the only purpose why a soul is kept taking on birth and keep doing the Karma and experiencing the phala for same until and unless soul becomes totally purified from every sort of actions and causes. Astrologically, Jagannath Drekkena Chart along with Privritti-traya Drekkana is widely used to understand every sort of karma one has to perform in the material world.
Karma, or fruitive work, brings both material enjoyment and material suffering. Whether the results of the action are pleasant or unpleasant, however, they bind one to the bondage of repeated birth and death in the material world.
Krishna explains further that inaction is insufficient to save one from material reactions (and subsequent bondage to the material world).
By nature, everyone is forced to act. Even to maintain the physical body, one must work.
Therefore, one should work in a way that will not further entangle one in material bondage but will lead to ultimate liberation.
That art of work is karma-yoga; working and acting under the direction of the Supreme (Vishnu or Krishna) for His satisfaction.
In the last section of this chapter, Arjuna asks,
“By what is one impelled to sinful acts, even unwillingly, as if engaged by force?”
Krishna answers that it is lust (material desire) :
the “destroyer of knowledge and self-realization”, which incites sinful acts, and He prescribes the method to conquer it: sense regulation inspired by spiritual self-knowledge.
In the Current article, we will study about the Jagannath Drekkana along with D1 and D9. Generally, D3 or Dresh-Kana, drekkana has a root connected with the word Darshan which means seeing or visualizing objects those are apparent and hidden in nature. Kana means the corner and in the astrological language, it speaks about the Trikonas or trine. Thus, the word Drekkana represents the division where the sign, trine speaks about the Apparent and hidden personality, nature of the native chart.Mathematically, The Drekkana is1/3rd of the divisional chart and it has a deep link with the 3rd house, as the 3rd house is falling in the 8th from the 8th house which shows root connected with the 8th house.Generally, Drekkana is calculated by dividing each sign into 10-degree of segments. Planets those are falls, in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd division of each sign, are then placed in the Drekkana Chart in Trines ( the 1st, 5th or 9th ) from that sign. In every Drekkana chart, every sign is divided into 3 equal parts of 10 degrees each of which is known as Drekkana. The first Drekkana of every sign ( 0-10) would be of the same sign. the 2nd Drekkana ( 10-20) of every sign would fall in the 5th sign from it. The last Drekkana (20-30) of every sign would be fall in the 9th sign from it. When a sign is divided into three parts each of them constitutes a Drekkana.
The Jagannath Drekkana starts from the Movable sign in trine to the sign. For a movable sign, drekkana would start from the sign itself, for a fixed sign, drekkana would start from the 9th from the sign and for dual signs drekkana would start from the 5th from the sign.Please follows below-mentioned Scheme for calculating Jagannath drekkana
For Predictive purpose, Jagannath Drekkana is used for understanding Deep-rooted karma phala those are results of the actions one’s soul has done in its previous birth and also speaks about the What soul has to do in current birth or to know about the sole purpose or what native has to do, in order to fulfil the task assigned to him or her by the divine master based on his previous birth karma.
Jagannath Drekkana works based on the tripod of life, i.e Lagana is seen for the physical body creation ruled by the Lord Bramh and the moon seen for the mind and the Sun seen for the Atma, soul). The body comes and goes in this world because of the karma we did and keep on uniting or exiting from the body, what matters is our actions which decide our birth and death.
Based on the one’s action when one is dying we see where one can go and in the same case when one takes birth we can see where one comes from, That Stoppage point shows the Loka where one goes and comes back in this body which decides on the time of the death and birth. Each planet and Sign decides at what loke one came from and one goes in.
Below is the chart for same:
At the time of death and Birth chart, we can find out the position of the sun and moon and their strength( lordship) and their placement in the chart to see previous and future destiny of the soul.
1st Drekkana of each sign is called Karma Drekkana, 2nd is called Bhoga Drekkana and 3rd Drekkana is Called Nasha Drekkana ruled by the Devarishi Narda, Maharishi Agastya and Bramha Rishi Durvasa respectively.
Moveable signs represent Rajas Guna, Maushya and presiding diety is Lord Bramha and Rishi Durvasa. fixed signs represented by Tamas Gunna, Rakashas Gana and Presiding deity is Lord Shiva and Maharishi Agastya and dual signs represented by Satva Guna, Deva Gana and presiding deity are Vishnu and Devarishi Narada.
1st Drekkana of Dual signs being karma drekkana represnted by devas and Maharishi narada.2nd Drekkana of moveable signs represents bhoga ruled by the lord shiva and person one born here should practise maximum displine to avoid fall from his dharma and karma.3rd Drekkana of fixed signs have raja guna ruled by the Lord Brahma and people born in this drekkana should live unattached life else they will keep on getting in birth and death cycles to reap their fruits of actions.
Even it shows, what Native has brought back from the past life that one has to bear it or go through it in current birth. This can be understood in a way that what is the root cause of this birth actions as a result of the past karma done by the soul.It is more about understanding one’s Karma and actions related to self, for self-growth and self-evaluation and bearing pain or suffering for the next journey of the soul.
To understand one’s actions and karma phala of one, the focus is on the third house and its lord, it will speak more about the nature of the karma yoga and the phala connected with it.
1) First, of all, we have to study or see the 3rd lord of the Natal chart which acts as Karyesa then see where the Karyesa is placed in the Jagannath Drekkana chart (D3) and which house does it lord.
2) The placement and houses lorded by the Karyesa of the D1 in D3 indicate what is the prime area where one has to go through it, it could also indicate one about its suffering or its redemption one can get from his past life karma.
3) Meanwhile, any Planet in 3rd house of the D3 Shows what native has to do in future for fulfilling the goals of life that have assigned to the native.
4) Placement of the 3rd lord of D3 shows what is the Karma Phala that one brought from the past life and also shows how he has to manifest or perform in this current birth, spiritually or materially if the 3rd house of the D3 is vacant.
All the Chara Rashi’s shows – Bhu-loka (Earth)
All the Sthira Rashi’s shows – Bhuva-loka (Grahas or Dieties of the Solar System)
All the Dual Sign shows – Swarga-Loka (Higher Gods and Deities)
Bhu-Loka (Chara Rashi) shows the earth and any planet in it show suffering due to bad karma one has done on earth in the previous life to someone. This also indicates that sufferings those are dynamic in nature and it can go and come on the journey of life during its Dashas, Bhukti, and Pratyantar dashas.Basically, it shows about Suffering those are temporary in nature and shall not carry forward till whole life.
Any Planet in the Sthira Rashi (Bhuva-Loka) shows sufferings that one gets via the anger or affliction of the planetary deity toward the native actions in the past life.
Any planet in the Dual Rashis (Swargaloka) shows that Gods or Higher Deities are not happy toward the native previous birth actions. It majorly shows the anger of the higher god toward the person and affliction is at the Nakashtra level (Health). Here, there is no redemption from such Sufferings and painful experiences. The motive could be lying in the eternal growth of the native or future spiritual manifestation of the soul.
Decoding Past Birth Root cause – Karma Phala
Its a good yoga of learning Karma and its pahla by self-realization and, as in Swami Vivekananda case Saturn being 3rd lord associated with the 8th lord moon, so it is all about finishing the task of past birth assigned to him for liberating many souls those are directionless or unguided from the present birth tasks.
karyesha (3rd lord of the D1) is Saturn is placed in the 6th house in Sthira Rashi of Taurus (Sign of Wealth, family & values). As Karyesha is placed in the fixed sign, Suffering is at the Bhuva-Loka , means one who realized at the Soul level, here Soul experiences are mainly ruled. it is about to learn at the Atmic level (Soul realization, Sun Lagna) and one gets in the form of wealth, Finance, and Soul transformations.Here Wealth could be in any form as might be one of the Punya of the past life too.
Apara Vidya encompasses the entire spectrum of ‘objects’, that is, anything that can be objectified by our senses or mind. Anything that can be ‘seen’ is an object of Apara Vidya. Under this category comes all our worldly knowledge’s. Science, arts, commerce, management, technical knowledge’s etc. Interestingly the teacher even classifies the knowledge of the Vedas and Vedanga’s in this category, because they are also a part of the limited & changing world in front of us. Apara Vidya is worth knowing because of various reasons. One, specialization in any one field of objective world, helps us to serve our society & world better, two, pursuit of knowledge disciplines our mind & intellect, so that we become capable of thinking deeply & properly, and last but not the least, this pursuit of Apara Vidya helps us to realize the ephemerality of the objective world, and thus helps us to get qualities of vairagya etc, and also motivates us to look out for something more permanent in this ever changing world. The objective of this categorization is to indicate to us that however much we may know the world outside, but by this pursuit alone we shall never move towards omniscience. Apara Vidya shall help us to make a living, have a dignified & respectable life, have a thoughtful intelligent mind, but never ever hope that you shall move towards omniscience. This is not the way for the fulfillment of such an aspiration.
This clearly shows swami Vivekananda eternal goal for this life is to awake people those who are misguided in the path of darkness to move toward balanced material and spiritual knowledge.
In D3 chart Karyesha is placed in the 6th house who is the ruler of 2nd and 3rd house shows swamiViveka-Nanda has to accomplish this Karma yoga task via visiting to many places, communicating, via delivering the speeches, traveling or leaving his family life.
As Both Jupiter and Venus are Aspecting it from the 11th and the 2nd house from the D3 lagna via Rasi drishti. He has to do this task via learning and experiencing every sort of material and non material knowledge and he needs to travel across the globe to deliver it in many of the forms, as sun being AK placed in the 8th from the Karyesha and lordship of the 8th from it, Jupiter also aspecting it shows that the, its a long lasting task assigned to him for the well being of the society till his conscious soul is alive.Its an Atmic task given to him for uplifting mankind.
I hope from above-mentioned example charts and understanding on Jagannarh Drekkana D3 chart, one can understand his karma yoga and find his soul purpose and able to do his destined karma yoga of the future life.
