the soul of the birth chart. It many times replaces the lagna, compensates
the weakness of the lagna chart and presides over the entire horoscope,
which confers a crowning glory upon it.

the various applications of the navamsha: Navamsha in Pre-Natal
Phase, Key Trait of Temperament, Longevity, Profession, Financial
Status and Disease from Navamsha chart. Dr. Mishra also elaborates
the use of Navamsha in the Prashna and Muhurta charts.

English Translation and Commentary by
Dr. K S Charak

astrology after the era of the sages like Parashara. He was born near
Ujjain during the sixth century AD. His most popular works are the
Brihat Jataka and the Brihat Samhita. The Laghu Jatakam is a rather
abridged version of the Jataka text. Easy to comprehend and rich in
substance, it is a classic that must be studied alike by the novice
and the master.
