# What is Ansayu (अंशायु)?

Ansayu is another very important method for calculation of longevity. It is followed when lagna is very strong.

###### The Procedure
1. Convert the full Nirayana longitude of the planets and lagna into minutes.
2. Divide each of them by 200. (1 Navamsa).
3. If the quotient is more than 12, then subtract multiples of 12 from it. The remainder is the age provided by the planets and lagna. If quotient is 12 then take it as 12.
4. Carry out Bharan Sanskar (Addition).
5. Carry out the Haran Sanskar (reductions) like in Pindayu except Krurodaya Haran, which will not be applied.
###### Bharan Sanskar (भरण संस्कार)
• If the planet is exalted or retrograde, multiply the age provided by the planet by 3.
• If the planet is vargottam, in own rashi, or in own Navamsa or in own drekkna (D chart), double the age. I.e. multiply by 2.
• If a planet is exalted and vargottam then double the years only once.
• If the planet is retrograde and vargottam, then multiply by 3 only once.

8. Lagna 3s 27° 56' 117° 56' 7076' 7076/200 = 11.38 Years 11yr, 4m, 17d
Total = 55yrs, 6mon
##### Eg Sun
Bharan Sanskar
S.No. Planet Years Contributed Exalted/ Retrograde Vargottam own Rashi, own Navamsa or Drekkna Years After Bharan
1. Sun 4.23 - - 4.23
2. Moon 10.68 - - 10.68
3. Mars 4.91 - Vargottam x 2 = 9.82 yrs 9.82
4. Mercury 6.97 - - 6.97
5. Jupiter 1.5 x 3 = 4.5 - 4.5
6. Venus 6.3 - Own Navamsa x2 = 12.6 yrs. 12.6
7. Saturn 9.53 - Own Navamsa x2 = 19.06 yrs. 19.06
8. Lagna 11.38 - - 11.38
Total = 55.5yrs
Before Bharan
Total = 79.24
After Bharan
Haran Sanskar
S.No. Planet Years Chakra Path Haran Astangat Haran Shatukshetra Haran Years After Haran
1. Sun 4.23 - - - 4.23
2. Moon 10.68 Placed in 7H So 1/12 loses =9.79 yrs - - 9.79
3. Mars 9.82 - - - 9.82
4. Mercury 6.97 - loses½ =3.485 - 3.485
5. Jupiter 4.5 Placed in 11H So ¼ lost =3.375 Yrs - - 3.375
6. Venus 12.6 - - - 12.6
7. Saturn 19.6 - - loses ⅓ So gets =13.07 yrs 13.07
8. Lagna 11.38 - - - 11.38
Total = 79.24yrs
Before Bharan
Total = 67.749
After Bharan
Amsayu = 67 yrs 9 months

Note - Amsayu has given the most Accurate Result.
