# Age increasing by a Planet as per Rishi Parashar Method (Pindayu "Grahadatta Ayurdaya")

Pindayu is one of the best methods of determining the Longevity. If Sun is the strongest among the planets and the Lagna, Pindayu method is used. Strength of the planets and Lagna is normally seen from Grahabala and Bhavabala. If one has to judge quickly then 'Digbali can be seen. Sun becomes digbali in the tenth house.

Seven planets from Sun to Saturn give their fixed years of longevity if they are at their deep exaltation (परमउच्च) degrees and they give half this Ayu at their deep debilitation (परमनीच) degrees. If they are placed in between the two, then the ayu can be worked out according to ratio proportion.

Planet Deep Exaltation Deep Debilitation
Sun 10° - Aries 10° - Libra
Moon 3° - Taurus 3° - Scorpio
Mars 28° - Capricorn 28° - Cancer
Mercury 15° - Virgo 15° - Pisces
Jupiter 5° - Cancer 5° - Capricorn
Venus 27° - Pisces 27° - Virgo
Saturn 20° - Libra 20° - Aries

If the planet is at Deep Exaltation degree he gives:

Fixed Ayu (Full Term of the planet)

 Total 127 Yrs Sun - 19 Yrs Moon - 25 Yrs Mars - 15 Yrs Mercury - 12 Yrs Jupiter - 15 Yrs Venus - 21 Yrs Saturn - 20 Yrs
###### The Procedure
1. Convert the Nirayana Longitudes of the planets into degrees.
• The full longitude of the planet should be converted, including Rashi- Degree-Minutes.
E.g. - If a planet is at 5° in Capricorn, then converted into degrees, it would be - 9s5°- 00' = 9x30+5=275°
2. Deduct the longitude of the deepest exaltation points of these planets from their converted degrees. This will give us their Arc of longevity (आयु की चाप).
3. If the result is less than 180" (6 Rashis) then deduct this figure from 360°.
• If the result is more than 180° (6 Rashis), then take it as it is.
4. Calculate the years given by each planet.
Formula:-
Full Term of the Planet X Arc of Longevity
360
= Ratio Proportion.
(The years contributed by the planet)
5. Add the years contributed by each planet.
6. Carry out the Haran Sanskar.
1. Chakrapath Haran
2. Astangat Haran
3. Shatru kshetra Haran
7. Add the ayu.
8. Carry out krurodaya Haran, (If a malefic planet is placed lagna)
9. Calculate Lagna Ayu.
10. Add the Lagna Ayu to the previously Calculated Ayu to get the Final Pindayu in savan yrs. (360 days)
11. Convert savan years into solar years (365 days).

Years Contributed
1. Sun
=7S4°7'
=214°7'
=214°07'-10°=204°7' =204.12° 19x204.12/360 =10.773 yrs = 10.773 yrs
2. Moon
=9S4°7'
=275°37'
=275°37'-33°=242°37' =242.62° 25x242.62/360 =16.848 yrs = 16.848 yrs
3. Mars
=7S16°22'
=136°22'+360°
=496°22'-298°=198°22' =192.37° 15x198.37/360 =8.265 yrs = 8.265yrs
4. Mercury
=7S13°14'
=223°14'
=223°14'-165°=58°14'
The result is less than 180°, so correct it by deducting it from 360°
360°-58°14'=301°46'
=301.77° 12x301.77/360 =10.059 yrs = 10.059 yrs
5. Jupiter

=405°-95°=310°
(45°+360°)
=310° 15x310/360 =12.916 yrs = 12.916 yrs
6. Venus
=8S21°=261°
=621°-357°=264°
(261°+360°)
=264° 21x264/360 =15.4yrs = 15.4 yrs
7. Saturn

=111°47'
=471°47'-200°=271°47'
(111°+360°)
=271.78° 20x271.78/360 =15.09 yrs = 15.09 yrs
Total =89.351 yrs
=89yr-4m-6d

The Ayu obtained will have to be subjected to four types of corrections (Harans).

###### Corrections: Reduction or haran in ayu is due to:
1. Chakra path Haran.
2. Astangat Haran.
3. Shatrukshektra Haran.
4. Krurodaya Haran.
###### 1. Chakra path Haran (चक्रपथ हरण)

This reduction is done because of the placement of planets between seventh and twelfth house.

Maximum Haran is because of placement in the twelfth house.

Houses Malefic Planet Benefic Planet
12th Loses Fully Loses Half
11th Half 1/4
10th 1/3 1/6
9th 1/4 1/8
8th 1/5 1/10
7th 1/15 1/12
###### If both Benefic and Malefic planets are placed in these houses then:
1. Mercury and Moon are not considered malefic.
2. Sun Mars and Saturn are malefics.
3. Rahu and Ketu are not taken into account.
• If More than one planet are placed together in these houses then the strongest out of them will lose, the rest will not lose.
###### 2. Astangat Haran (अस्तंगत हरण)

A combust planet loses half of his Ayu obtained after chakra path haran.

Planet Degree of Combustion
Moon 12° ahead or behind Sun
Mars 17° ahead or behind Sun
Mercury (Direct) 14° ahead or behind Sun
Retrograde 12° ahead or behind Sun
Jupiter 11° ahead or behind Sun
Venus (Direct) 10° ahead or behind Sun
Retrograde 8° ahead or behind Sun
Saturn 15° ahead or behind Sun

Saturn and Venus are exempted from Astangat Haran.

###### 3. Shatru Kshetra Haran (शत्रुक्षेत्र हरण)

If a planet is placed in his inimical Rashi, then after Astangat Haran, a further 1/3 reduction is done. Parashar natural friendship is considered friend is seen from the planet's own side. This Haran does not apply to:

1. Retrograde planets.
2. Mars in Capricorn.

There is some controversy among Astrologers regarding Mars.

###### When one or more than one Krura grahas - namely Saturn Mars or Sun are placed in lagna, then Krurodaya Haran is carried out.
1. Convert the lagna degrees (minus the Rashi) into minutes.
2. Multiply these minutes with the age provided by all planets, after shatru kshetra haran.
3. Divide the figure, thus obtained, by 21,600 (360° converted into minutes).
4. Reduce the quotient from the age provided by all the planets.
• If a benefic aspects the lagna, deduct 1/2 the quotient.
• If a benefic planet is also placed in the lagna then:-
• If the benefic is closer to the lagna degree - No Haran is carried out.
• If the malefic is closed to the lagna degree, then deduct 1/2 the quotient.
Haran Sanskar for Indira Gandhi
Planet Years Chakra Path Haran(1) Astanghat Haran(2) Shatrukshetra Haran(3) Years After Haran
Sun 10.773 - - - 10.773 yrs
Moon 16.848 Places in 7H
So, 1/12 is lost
=15.444 yrs
- - 15.444 yrs
Mars 8.265 - - - 8.265 yrs
Mercury 10.059 - 5.0295 - 5.0295 yrs
Jupiter 12.916 Places in 11H
So, lost ¼
=9.687 yrs
- not applied
because Jup.
is retrogate
9.687 yrs
Venus 15.4 - - - 15.4 yrs
Saturn 15.09 - - loses 1/3, so
gets=10.06 yrs
10.06 yrs
Total 74.6585 yrs.
Krurodaya Haran for Saturn - 2.8965 yrs*
Years After Krurodaya Haran = 71.7620 yrs.
###### Saturn is placed in Lagna and therefore will undergo Krurodaya Haran.
1. Convert lagna degree, minus the signs into minutes.
Lagna - 3s 27° 56' = 27" 56' = 1676'
Ayu provided by planets after shatru kshetra haran x Minutes of Ascendant
216000' (360°)
74.6585 x 1676         = 5.7929 yrs
21600
2. Since Saturn is aspected by a benefic moon he will lose 1/2 these years i.e. 2.8965 in krurodaya haran.

To the Ayu obtained after Haran, Lagna ayu will have to be added.

###### Lagna Ayu
1. Note the longitude of Lagna in signs, degrees and minutes. Ignore the signs and convert the degrees into minutes.
2. Lagna gives a term of life in years equal to the Navamsa passed in lagna.
3. Because 1 Navamsa is 3°20' (200'), divide the minutes of lagna by 200 to get the years and months provided by Lagna.
• Lagna is 3s 27° 56'
• Ignore 3s, and convert 27°56' into minutes = 1676'
• 1676'/20 = 8.38 years = provided by Lagna or Lagnayu
###### Pindayu
• Years obtained after Haran = 71-7620 yrs.
Lagna Ayu = + 8.38 yrs.
Total Ayu = 80.1420 Savan Years
(1 savan year = 360 days, 1 solar yr = 365 days
• Convert into Solar years
80.142 x 360    = 79.044 yrs (solar)
365
Final Pindayu = 79 yrs - 0 month - 16 days.
