BPL commentary: For Swati natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.
"A quiet and unassuming person,
thoughtful and meditative
Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.
Prefers solitude to the company of others.
Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."
A light eater and moderate in most things."
