"The Best View"
Three lagna =
+ Janma kundali lagna
+ Chandra lagna
+ Surya lagna
One version of Sudarshamsha chakra in scripture = a wheel of Graha which spin around Shri Vishnu who is the center of the universe.
The theme in Jyotisha chart construction is similar, with the intent being to align several diverse views of graha distribution along one central axis.
How to Construct the Sudarshamsha chart
Some Jyotisha computer software can generate the Sudarshamsha chart, but it is also easy to draw it with pencil by hand.
Use a Greek-style wheel chart sliced into 12 sections for 12 rashis. (See example below.) Make three nested charts all aligned at the lagna points. Top wheel = Surya lagna; center wheel = Chandra lagna; inner small wheel = janma lagna.
This practice is often very revealing because it is so visual.
Vocabulary for Sudarshana = Sudarahana-amsha
The corrective value of Su-darzana * high view
It is easy to jump to conclusions if the janma lagna is given too much importance. (This is a practice issue in western astrology, where varga and comparative lagna are rarely used.)
In the example below, note that there are remarkably strong concentrations of graha in Sudarzanamsha (Sudarshana) bhava-1, bhava-4, and bhava-7. The remaining kendra bhava-10 is also occupied by 2 strong graha.
Right away we know that this person might be nice (Meena Chandra) but definitely they have a strong character with fixed habits.
This generalization is helpful to set:
The minimum number of graha in any Sudarshamsha chakra = 2: Surya and Chandra.
This native has 4. Again, strong personality!
dazamamza-10 + karmesha-10 , 10th navamsha, etc. are essential indicators of career. But a quick perusal of the Sudarzanamsha (Sudarashana) chakra chart gives the working Jyotisha an appropriate orientation before one plunges into the details of varga charts and relative domain lords.
Quick view of career: which Graha occupy the relative 10th-from Surya, Chandra, and janma lagna?
So, the first sweep of this nativity might result in a general orientation toward career being adequately engaging for the native but not spectacularly high-respect. Despite good capability judged from lagna, both the rational and psycho-intuitive thrust toward high levels of public leadership seem to be lacking.
of course his assessment could be trumped if some fabulous yoga is noted in subsequent inspection.
Sudarshamsha chakra chart is meant to be a bit of a first-pass, not a final judgment.

all that is true, all that is noble,
all that is just and pure,
all that is loveable and gracious,
whatever is excellent and admirable -
fill all your thoughts with these things."
