Birth Time Rectification & Verification - Part III

This is the third part of a series which talks about Kalidas method of birth time rectification and verification techniques discussed in Uttar Kalamrit. The third technique is for verifying Lagna (ascendant).

Lagna Shuddhi
Find out the Rasi occupied by the Moon and Mandi; and their Navamsas. The native will have this birth either in the Rasi occupied by Maandi or the Moon whichever be the stronger; or in the Lagna Rasi which will be the 7th, 5th or the 9th from either of them. If instead of these two Rasis, the Navamsa Rasi owned by Mandi or the Moon be stronger, then the Janma Lagna will be in the stronger Navamsa Rasi or the 7th, 5th or the 9th from it.

In other words this method suggests that the lagna of person must always be 1, 5, 7, 9 from either Moon or Mandi. This should be checked both from Lagna chart as well as Navamsa chart. This is a method which suggests that there is a connection between moon position and ascendant position at the time of birth.

In KP system there is a popular birth time rectification method which says that the Ascendant sub lord should be the same or connected with star lord of the Moon. I beleive that this KP rectification method also has root in the Kalidas method. Though KP method ignores Mandi and just relies on Ascendant-Moon connection.

This is my third and the last post on birth time rectification methods in Uttar Kalamrit. Though Uttar Kalamrit is not the only texts that talks about birth time rectificaiton. I have another post which talks about other methods available in Vedic astrology.

    IN case ther is one nadi i.e. nadi dosh they says that u look for the blood group. How do u rate this? should one follow this practise. Can one add all 8 points if blood group is compatible for alliance?

  2. In my opinion, checking blood group is not correct as blood group has nothing to do with nadi.
