|from liability to asset|| True nichha-bhanga graha will flip from socially criticized underperformance to stunning, great performance but the rules for this switch are strict. |
nichha-bhanga occurs (1) when the nichha graha occupies a kendra * particularly bhava-10 * and* (2) a graha in one of the nichha lord's bhava or yuti the nichha graha or the lord of the nichha bhava = uttama.
Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Albert Einstein 's nichha-bhanga Budha occupies bhava-10 with uttama-Zukra.
Under nichha-bhanga conditions, the handicap becomes an asset.
At first, the nichha graha makes the native look (to others) and perhaps feel (within) that one lacks some important ability or intelligence, has made a poor choice such as in marriage, or is poorly positioned by education or talent to achieve some goal.
|"First the nichha, then the bhanga".|| |
In other words, a nichha-bhanga graha will do its nichha behavior first, and the native will be unappreciated.
Then the bhanga correction will kick in, and the native will be praised.
The nichha graha gives initially, a variety of humiliation or failure. The praise and nobility does come, but only after one suffers some measure of disability, embarrassment, an acute lack of judgment, or a big mistake.
TWO CONDITIONS must be met
to permit obtainment of nichha-bhanga status for a
(1) when the nichha graha occupies a kendra - ideally the 10th
(2) a graha residing in one of the nichha lord's bhava -- or yuti the nichha graha -- should hold uttama status.
True nichha-bhanga graha flip from socially criticized underperformance to stunning, spectacular performance.
But the rules for legitimizing this switch are strict.
Rules for Cancellation of Debility
quoted from authorities: David Frawley and B.V. Raman
The Astrology of the Seers by David Frawley
"There must be at least 2 forms of cancellation to get a real nichha-bhanga"
According to The Astrology of the Seers by David Frawley,
These are the possible methods of cancellation:
Kendra is the strongest criterion for cancellation and 10 is the strongest Kendra. Neechha-bhanga definitely applies if the neechha-graha occupies bhava-10 + any other additional condition is also met.
Kanya-Zukra of England-Queen 1533-1603 Elizabeth-1 obtains nichha-bhanga and gives marvelous results. Of course, as the slogan goes "first the nichha, then the bhanga". Nichha-bhanga graha are difficult in the beginning.
| According to B.V. Raman . (1992, 4th ed.). A Catechism of Astrology. Part II, page 33 |
the dosha-reversal rules are a little easier:

i want to ask u one question in one has nich grah in LAGNA kundali and in navmansha the nich grah becomes uch then NICHBHANGA IS CANCELD OR NOT?
Two sets of rules for cancellation of debility or nichha-bhanga, according to two authorities (Dr. Frawley and Shri Raman), are posted above.
So far as I know, the simple fact of a nichha graha obtaining its uttama rashi in navamsha does not create a full nichha-bhanga (reversal of the nichha Dosha).
In my experience Raman is correct (as he nearly always is!). Nevertheless, the full nichha-bhanga wherein the liability becomes an amazing positive (similar effect to Viparita Raja Yoga but a different planetary cause) only occurs when Dr. Frawley's conditions are met.
|Q: Can't I get a nichha-bhanga via drishti from the nichha graha's lord? I have a nichha-Mangala which receives the glance of Professor Chandra . I feel that I should get a NB or at least a raja yoga from this beneficial glance of Chandra to Mangala.|| |
However, the nichha condition of Mangala will not be eliminated simply via receiving drishti from its lord, particularly considering Mangala's involvement with Rahu-Ketu.
It's true that Mangala benefits somewhat from occupying a kendra from Chandra and via incoming drishti from Chandra.
However Chandra is weakened yuti Ketu .
The good news is that Rahu and Mangala are, separately and together, money-earners in the 11th sthana, and the financial benefits of Chandra-Mangala yoga are not harmed by the nichha status of Mangala. You will earn well professionally, and with lagnesha Budha in 2 you are also an efficient capital-wealth conserver.
Folks with nichha graha are usually on the lookout for any shloka that will justify a nichha-bhanga. Yet most of the time nichha is nichha. Corrections are not that common.
But ironically it is characteristic of the nichha graha to be in denial about its debility. Basically, these are graha that are weak and looking for excuses.
Nichha graha tend to be associated with various moral weaknesses such as blaming, stealing, plagiarizing, embezzling, taking credit for the work of others, hiding behind the law, avoiding personal responsibility, and generally not living up to its spiritual potential.
Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.
So naturally the nativities with the nichha graha often try to concoct justifications for its purported correction. The best way to correct the at-birth weakness, if it truly does not receive NB in the nativity, is via Seva.
300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotishi BV Raman says that a nichha-bhanga correction can be reckoned if the lord of the nichha graha occupies a kendra from Chandra.
This method of nichha-bhanga correction seems to be insufficient but it was insisted to me recently by a client who seemed to be living with a rather nichha set of lifestyle choices!
I think he was just weaseling out of his responsibility to look carefully at this nichha graha and the corresponding effects in his life. He was operating an illicit business. Raman's rules are so flexible that they can be easily misused.
But even this flexible method will not yield the correction you are looking for. It might be better to just be honest and look for seva opportunities to work with people who have nichha-Mangala. The target beneficiaries of Seva should be those who are suffering problems in their lives due to behaviors which can be characterized as emotionally manipulative, arm-twisting, choking, and thieving - especially in Azlesha.
Meena-Budha in karma bhava for Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Albert Einstein
(1) Budha occupies a kendra , and
(2) via parivartamsha yoga, Budha's Professor Guru obtains swakshetra.
First the nichha part.
At the beginning of atmakaraka-uttama-Zukra/nichha-bhanga-Budha period, astronomers considered a number of Einstein's claims -- because these claims were based on "thought experiments" -- to be scientifically unsupportable.
Then the bhanga part.
By the end of Zukra/Budha period (where Budha = lagnesha+L-4) in the year 1915, Einstein had published the General Theory of Relativity * Zur Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie = in much the same form this theory has today.
|The same nichha-bhanga correction occurs for Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan * widower of Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Benazir Bhutto|| Zardari's nichha-Mangala shares bhava-11 with the uttama-Guru and Karkata occupies 10th from Zardari's Chitra-Thula Moon. |
He already has massive international networking connections including abundant finances (some of it questionably sourced, nichha-Mangala-11).
Zardari rose to power swiftly in Pakistan during Shani-Guru bhukti.
| Q: |
I have a peculiar situation in my chart. I have Surya, Rahu, Budha, Guru in the 10th house in Meena. Chandra is in the 4th with Ketu in Virgo. Would this fit nichha-bhanga for budha?
Would this fit nichha-bhanga for budha?
| A: Namaste, |
Probably not. Nichha-bhanga requires (1) the nichha graha must occupy a Kendra from either the radical lagna or from the Chandra lagna and (2) the nichha bhanga graha must share a bhava with an uttama-graha. The situation you describe meets condition-1 but does not meet condition-2.
This configuration would only be able to obtain nichha-bhanga if Meena-Zukra occupies bhava-10. Compare to Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Albert Einstein 's famous nichha-bhanga Budha that made him an iconic visionary (Meena) paradigm-shifting explainer of post-third dimensional physics as well as an extraordinary poet and musician.
However that magnificent cluster of graha in 7th from Chandra-4 does indicate a remarkable first marriage partner!
