Take shelter at the feet of Vishvanath, burn all ego. Roam in the world with purity. Pay attention to Kalachakra who is giving great knowledge to everybody. This chapter is just introducing the subject and bringing to use certain techniques to show the depth of the use of the nakshatras. The Kalachakra is an elaborate system of Tantric astrology.
This tantra is composed of five books. The first book is on the outer Kalachakra and has the large amount of Jyotish information. The Kalachakra is a wheel of time, almost a calendar in its self. Literally, Kala means time and Chakra means wheel. The second chapter is related to the inner Kalachakra and related to the nadis energy channels and movement of prana relative to Jyotish.
The third book deals with tantric initiation into the Kalachakra path and the fourth and fifth books relate more to sadhana and meditation.
The Tantra was translated a few hundred years ago into Tibetan and parts of the Tibetan text have been translated into English with Tibetan Buddhist commentary. There has been no direct translations from the original Sanskrit to English as of yet There are deities contained in the Kalachakra plus Siva and Durga.
And with 6 seal implanting deities there are main deities in the Kalachakra that are said to relate to main channels in the body. In the same way they also relate to astronomical aspects. In the outer level body mandala there are 2 Adityas in each of the 4 directions, and 1 Aditya in each of the intermediate directions.
This adds up to the twelve months of the year. Each Aditya is embracing their consort and surrounded by 28 deities, that represent the 30 days in a month, and all added together the degrees of the zodiac and sidereal solar year. Prasna Marga of Harihara teaches some techniques of calculating death with the Kalachakra and the 8 Yoginis. There are exactly 36 verses listed in Prasna Marga on the Kalachakra.
The life cycle can be broken down into 3 sections of 36 which add up to When jyotish longevity calculations give the result of short, medium or long life, they are referring to these three cycles of There are five techniques for determining which third of life a person will die. These are related to the panchatattvas 5 elements. Once the section of longevity is calculated, the next step is to see when within that frame of time will the person meet their death.
This is done with various methods like Shoola dasa, Navtara chakra, and the movement of the Yoginis in the Kalachakra, etc. The Kalachakra will also show the health of the native and especially times of sickness. It shows how a person uses their pranas energy and the directions in life this will lead them. The natal chart is mapped into the Kalachakra to be read. Prasna Marga gives a verse for the drawing of the Kalachakra diagram used in Jyotish. Beginning from the center of the top horizontal line establish the 28 stars including Abhijit in the 28 parts in the order shown in the diagram.
Starting from No. The Kalachakra is a 28 nakshatra system so add 1 to any nakshatra over 21 in the 27 chakra system. The 27 nakshatra system averages this to 27 signs each having 13 degrees and 20 minutes of arc. The 28 nakshatra system calculates the remaining 7 hours and 38 minutes into a sign called Abhijit which is 4 degrees 14 minutes and 13 seconds of arc.
There is a diagram at the end of this article if needed. Human beings are made of three external things: Body, Prana and Mind. This can be seen in the Kalachakra as the external layer, the middle level and the internal level. The outer body layer is often referred to as the Exalted Body Mandala. The middle pranic level is called the Exalted Speech Mandala. The inner Manas level is called Exalted Mind Mandala. The innermost section of the Kalachakra is called the Fortress of Durga.
It can be divided into three main sections. Then the inner most center is the Mandala of Great Bliss. In this center Mandala there is a green eight petalled lotus which is the seat of Durga as Vishvamaata who is saffron colored with 4 faces and 8 hands.
She is in embrace with Siva as Kaalachakra. Sri Kaalachakra has four faces and twenty-four hands. What is visible is what is outside, on the outer level. The Moon is always visible, like the conscious mind always seen.
So the birth star with the Moon start the Kalachakra. The Moon is placed where you see the number one in the above diagram. Other planets are placed in their respective nakshatras.
There are other techniques than the one I will be demonstrating that use different configurations. The Moon in the East is aligned with the natural Sun and therefore shows the pranas in the body. The moon in the North East shows the manas as the mind is always under the influence of Rahu.
Sometimes the Sun nakshatra is also used starting the sequence from the North East direction; this is used to see evils in the chart. There is also another system used for receiving knowledge from and about the devas. In this Kalachakra the Nakshatras will go in a counter clockwise order. Software is not needed as long as one knows the planet nakshatras.
For those using Jagannath Hora software which calculates the Kalachakra with the Sun as the base nakshatra. Right click and chose [change base nakshatra]. Then select [use the following star as the base instead]. Then select the jamna nakshatra of the native you are calculating. The following is an example using the chart of the Dalai Lama.
For the remaining 23 nakshatras each has four padas the order of their dasas will be the same as for the above four nakshatras as explained below:— a The order of the dasas of the four padas of Krittika. The initial Mahadasha of a life belongs to the lord of the sign owning the nakshatra pada occupied by the Moon at the time of birth, being so much of the sign Mahadasha as corresponds to the Ghatlkas that yet remain of the nakshatra pada and the order of Mahadashas follows the natural order of the nakshatra pada reckoned from the aforesaid one. This is the opinion, say the sages, held by some learneds in Astrology. There are number of formulas each composed of a number of mnemonic syllables, refering to the several nakshatra padas beginning with the first pada of Aswini and giving signs in a certain order. It is with reference to the order of sign in these formulas that the rasi Mahadashas of which a life is to consist should be determined.

The case against astrology Some years ago, HH Dalai Lama surprised many at a meeting in Dharmsala by stating quite clearly that he did not believe in astrology, that it did not work. This meeting took place at the Tibetan Medical and Astro Institute and I am told that a significant proportion of the astrologers present subsequently gave up astrology and found new careers. But even if the calendar were reformed, might Tibetan astrology "work", and what would be meant by that? Since Jung, the first major modern attempt to take an objective approach towards astrology was published in the book, "Recent advances in natal astrology", by Geoffrey Dean. A telling comment early in the book is this: "The picture emerging suggests that astrology works, but seldom in the way or to the extent that it is said to work. On the first point, all too often simple gullibility is the reason that people think that astrology "works". The same book describes surveys in which, for example, newspaper adverts invited people to send in their birth details, they would then receive a reading, and would be asked to comment on its accuracy.
Traditionally, astrology was one of the five secondary sciences in Tibet. It concerns not only divination, but it is also used in the study of time cycles, Tibetan chronology and the compilation of the calendar. The calendar in the form of an almanac is still quite important in the daily life of the Tibetans to ensure that their daily activities are in tune with the cosmos. Furthermore, the position of the planets and the cycles of the elements determine good or bad fortune and good or bad health. In a Tibetan village, the astrologer would use his skills to advise people about nearly everything: from the weather, the best time to harvest, verify if and when two people should marry, to important business deals.
