Reading the results from Dasa Bhukti is a major factor to decide the course of life for a particular period. some give predictions for a whole life period and some give only for the current Bhukti and a general sketch for rest of the periods. This depends upon the person’s preference and depending upon the same, the Astrologer would undertake the job as desired.
Immediate transfer in job or marriage of son or daughter. Their marriageable age, or building of a house or improvement or relief from sickness etc, can be known by Antara. In Venus Dasa Venus Antara is for a longer duration than in Sun Dasa.
When the Dasa lord is the lord of 5th or 9th Bhava, favourable results are seen. When Saturn or Jupiter Dasa are 4 or 6 respectively, they are unfavourable. The constellation position of the lord of Dasa is also to be studied. Each Dasa has nine sub-divisions or Bhuktis. There seems to be no fixed formula for arriving at conclusions. The results noted in this chapter are furnished in general. Good and bad results are furnished.
