Let us see the complete details about the effects of Antardasa and Antardasa Lords would deliver in our life. First Let us study how to divide Mahadasa period into Antardasa period.

How to calculate Antardasa period within a Mahadasa period?

The Mahadasa period of a particular planet would be divided by all 9 planets in an unequal manner. We know that the Sun Mahadasa has a period of 6 Years. This 9 years would be divided by all the 9 planets in an unequal manner among themselves. Let us find out how to divide these Mahadasa period into Antardasa periods.


D = M * 3 

Total Days of Antardasa Period = D * A 

where M = Number of Mahadasa Years, D = Antardasa Days Period per Year and A = Number of Mahadasa Years of the planet for which Antardasa period has to be calculated.

Example 1:

Let us calculate Sun Antardasa Period of Sun Mahadasa using this formula.

We all know Sun Mahadasa = 6 Years.

Let us take M = 6, hence M * 3 = 6 * 3 = 18 Days/Per Year = D

Now we need to calculate the Sun Antardasa period, hence we take A = 6 

Now D = M * 3 = 6 * 3 = 18 Days @ D = 18 Days

Now Total Days of Sun Antardasa Period = D * A = 18 * 6 = 108 Days

Let us convert 108 Days into months.

108 Days/30 Days = 3 months and 18 Days.

That is, Sun Antardasa period within the Sun Mahadasa period would last for 3 months and 18 days.

Example 2: 

We are going to calculate Moon Antardasa period within the Sun Mahadasa period.

Hence we take M = 6 Years (Sun Mahadasa period)

So, D = M * 3 = 6 * 3 = 18 Days/per Year = D

We want to calculate the Moon Antardasa period within the Sun Mahadasa period

Hence we take A = 10

Now Total Days of Moon Antardasa Periods = D * A = 18 * 10 = 180 Days.

Let us convert 180 Days into months.

180 Days/ 30 days = 6 months.

Results: The Moon Antardasa period within the Sun Mahadasa is 6 months.

Example 3:

Let us calculate Kethu Antardasa period within the Shani Mahadasa periods.

We know that Kethu Mahadasa period = 7 Years
                      Shani Mahadasa period = 19 Years

Let us take the formula:

D = M * 3

Here M = 19 and A = 7

D = M * 3 = 19 * 3 = 57 days = D

Now Total Days of Kethu Antardasa Periods = D * A = 57 * 7 = 399 Days.

Now let us convert 399 days into months.

399 Days/30 days = 13 months 9 days = 1 Year 1 month 9 days.

That is, Kethu Antardasa period would be 1 year 1 month 9 days period within the 19 Years of Shani Antardasa period.

Using this formula, we can divide all the Mahadasa periods into Antardasa period of all 9 planets

Let us see how the Mahadasa works in our life. Before going into the details, look at the simple example.

In a country, elections are held and a party wins the elections. The successful party assumes the power and rule the country.

1. There could be change of law or entactment of new laws.

2. An older law can be regulated or simply deleted.

3. There could be Policy changes that could affect economy, culture and welfare.

Similarly, a planet would rule the life of a person during its Mahadasa period. That is, the lifestyle of the person gets changed either to better or worse depending upon the benefice or malefic nature of the planet concerned. Thus the change of Mahadasa is an important event in everybody's life.

If we assume that if a person is able to live for 90 or plus years of age, then he/she would go through a minimum of 7 to 8 Mahadasa in his/her life. Only in rare cases, the persons would be able to see the 9th Mahadasa in his/her life.

Who is lucky or Unlucky?

As we have mentioned earlier, every person would have a minimum of 4 to 5 benefice or malefic Mahadasa periods. If the benefice Mahadasa period comes at the age, when she/he is less than 15 years of life or if she/he is more than 80 years of age, then the benefice Mahadasa may not be of much use to him/her. But if the benefice Mahadasa comes to a person at the age between 15 to 70 Years of life, then he/she called be lucky.

Will the entire Mahadasa would be bring good or bad results?

The Mahadasa period is sub divided into 9 parts and owned by all the 9 planets. This division of Mahadasa period is called as "Antardasa Periods" (called in Tamil as "Bukthi"). Hence the Mahadasa would deliver 9 different results depending upon the benefice and malefic nature of Antardasa Lords. Thus a person need not worry about his entire Mahadasa period, if the Mahadasa Lord is malefic. Also a person can really expect troubles whenever he/she takes some mindless or orbitary decisions even though he passes through benefice Mahadasa periods.

Who is powerful? Mahadasa Lords or Antardasa Lords?

The Mahadasa Lords are extremely powerful. They can really make complete overhaul of the lifestyle during its time. A benefice Antardasa Lord can bring few relief (temporary in nature) during the malefic Mahadasa period. Similarly, a malefic Antardasa Lord can create troubles (temporary in nature) during the benefice Mahadasa periods. But the Antardasa Lords do not have the power to completely over rule the effects of the Mahadasa Lords.

Time Analysis:

First read the charts given below:

1. The Antardasa is sub divided into Pratyantara Dasa into 9 parts and each governed by all the 9 planets.

2. The Pratyantara Dasa is sub divided into Sookshma Dasa into 9 parts and each governed by all the 9 planets.

3. The Sookshma Dasa is sub divided into Prana Dasa into 9 parts and each governed by all the 9 planets.

All the Dasa's are governed by the same rules that are applicable to the Mahadasa Lord.

Which is the best time and which is the worst time?

1. A person enjoys his best of life, while he/she passes through Mahadasa to Pranadasa that are owned by the benficial planets.

2. A person would experience worst in his/her life, if he/she passes through Mahadasa to Pranadasa that are owned by the malefic planets.

3. A person would experience mixed or multiple or variable results in his/her life, if he/she passes through Mahadasa to Pranadasa that are owned by both the malefic and benefice planets. But he/she would experience modest success in his/her life, if the Mahadasa Lord is beneficial. But he/she would experience stagnation or troubles in his/her life, if the Mahadasa Lord is malefic in nature.

We will do the Time Analysis and find out whether we have control over our life or not? in our next post.

The word "Mahadasa" assumes very important place in the Hindu Vedic Astrology. Let us study the importance of Mahadasa in your life.

Basically a human has 120 years to live in this earth as per our Vedic Astrology. That is, if a person enjoys absolute longevity in his/her horoscope, he/she lives a full term of 120 Years.

These 120 Years would be divided by the 9 planets in an unequal manner. In simple terms, these planets would take control of our life for the particular period. Let us see the effective control of these planets on this 120 Years.

If a child is born in Revathi Nakshatra, then the Child starts with Budhan Mahadasa at the time of Birth. This is because, the Revathi Nakshatra belongs to Budhan. But the Child does not pass through all these 17 years of Budhan Mahadasa during its younger age. Let us see the reason for it.

The Revathi Nakshatra is divided into 4 parts, which are called as "Paths". If the Moon is placed in the Revathi Nakshatra Path 1 (at the time of birth), then the child would pass through a minimum of 12 years 9 months of Budhan Mahadasa to a maximum of 17 years. Suppose if a child is born during the movement of the Moon in the Revathi Nakshatra path 3, then the child would pass through a minimum of 4 years and 9 months to the maximum of 8 years and 6 months of Budhan Mahadasa (at the young age).

Afterwards, the child passes through Kethu Mahadasa (7 years), Sukra Mahadasa (20 years), Sun Mahadasa (6 Years) and so on. Thus if the Child is able to live at the age of 103 or above, then the child would again pass through the same Budhan Mahadasa. Thus our life goes around a full circle.

How does the Mahadasa works for us?

1. First find out the current Mahadasa lord and its ownership.

2. Locate the planet's position.

3. Find out the strength and weakness of the Mahadasa lord.

4. Find out the possible effects on your life by using this table.

Note: Please note that the following issues while reading the Horoscope.

1. Nobody in this world will have all planets that are good and placed in the perfect place.

2. Everbody will have 3to 5 planets either beneficial or malefic in nature.

3. Hence nobody is fully lucky or fully unlucky.

4. Everybody's luck is decided by the type of the planets that are going to rule over them during their prime part of the life @ 15 years to 65 years of age.

5. If a person's beneficial planet is going to rule his life before the age of 15 Years or after 85 Years will not translate into major gains in their life.

6. Then nobody can not expect to enjoy good times for more than 35 Years.

7. The change of Mahadasa period is highly important event to take place in your life. Tracking the Mahadasa is the duty of everyone to avoid getting into future troubles.

8. Reading the Guru and Shani's transit are highly insignificant with regards to the effects of change of Mahadasa periods.
