amsha = a part, section, portion, share of things which are specifically inseparable or inherently linked together.
|in practice|| An amsha in Jyotisha is a part, portion, slice, which can be considered separately for some analytical purposes; however the Jyotisha forever keeps in mind that ultimately no amsha can be understood out of the context of the whole kundali. |
Separating any amsha, taking it out for individual inspection, making a judgment on that particular portion, must be appreciated as only one part of a total process. No one single factor can ever be determinative in a Jyotisha reading.

| Dear Mrs Pijan, |
First of all I would like to thank you for all your work and all the informations we can find on your website, which is the best place I found to learn on the subject of vedic astrology.
I am a french young man, I got interested in astrology a few years ago, and I am glad I found your website which definitively help me understand many things. There is almost nothing on this subject in French.
So, I have the maitreya software to edit charts, and it's been a while now since I'm asking myself some question I can't resolve, that is why I am requiring your help, if you find the time to answer me.
So, I give an example, it will be easier, I have my lagna (choosing the exact local time) at 08:51 degree of pushyami nakshatra, Venus at 06:40 degree in Ardra, and Mercury at 00:51 Mrigashira. If I look at the houses from the yogaview point, Venus and Mercury are in the 12th house. If I look at it from the houses calculation point, it is in the 11th house.
How do I know in which house it is ?
Thank you for your help, and I'm looking forward to read your answer.
| Namaste Etienne, Thanks very much for your nice compliments. |
Because you are a beginner student, please use equal house method in traditional Jyotisha. House-1 begins at 08:51 Karkata, house-2 begins at 08:51 Simha, house-3 begins at 08:51 Kanya, and so on.
When you have more experience, it might be beneficial to experiment with other perspectives. However in the beginning of studies, please use only one simple traditional method. The most simple method for learners is the equal house method.
It is simple and it is accurate for making predictions. The planetary lords of the equal houses should be tracked in the Vimshottari Dasha for purpose of making predictions. If the time of birth for the person is accurate, and the Jyotisha knows well the meanings of those planets, the predictions can be quite accurate.
Also it is recommended to avoid undue focus upon your own nativity. Humans cannot be objective in evaluating our own Jyotisha nativity. We apply too much anxiety to that assignment. Instead, please carefully study the nativities of public personalities, or members of your family. Compare them! Have known events in the lives of these persons matched their Vimshottari Dasha sequences?
If one truly wishes to understand Jyotisha, in the beginning, one should not study one's own chart. After several years of study however, then it can be useful to compare one's own charts and timelines to the data received from other personalities.
Wishing you every success in your study of the samayavidya,
BP Lama Jyotisha
