Panchmahapurusha yoga:

from B.V. Raman. (1947). Three Hundred Important Combinations.

"The Panchmahapurusha Yogas can be said to exist only when the planets concerned are strong and are full of vitality .

The meaning implies five types of great men .

Naturally, a really powerful Yoga would be a rare phenomenon.

Emphasis is laid on the word halishta so that if a planet is weak by debilitation, association or aspect the Yoga does not operate in its real sense, though nominally, it may exist.

Here importance is attached to the de facto rather than de jure presence of the Yoga. ..."

19. Hamsa Yoga

Vocabulary from Koeln Sanskrit Lexicon

haMsa:

  • A goose, gander, swan, flamingo (or other aquatic bird, considered as a bird of passage; sometimes a mere poetical or mythical bird,

  • said in RV. to be able to separate Soma from water, when these two fluids are mixed, and in later literature, milk from water when these two are mixed

  • also forming in RV. the vehicle of the Asvins, and in later literature that of Brahma;

  • The soul or spirit (typified by the pure white colour of a goose or swan , and migratory like a goose; female goose

  • sometimes "the Universal Soul or Supreme Spirit"

  • the universal and the individual Spirit

  • A man of supernatural qualities born under a particular constellation

  • An unambitious monarch

  • An excellent draught-ox (accord. to some,"a buffalo")

Quotation from: B.V. Raman. (1991). Three Hundred Important Combinations.


"Definition.


Results. :

  • His legs will have the markings of a conch, lotus, fish and ankusa.
  • He will possess a hand some body;
  • he will be liked by others;
  • he will be righteous in disposition and pure in mind.

Remarks.

This and the following four Yogas go under the special distinction of Panchamahapurusha Yogas producing five kinds of great men.

Varahamihira has extolled these five combinations in his Brihat Samhita.

Hamsa Yoga is caused if Jupiter is in a Kendra which should be identical with his own sign (Swakshetra) or the sign in which he gets exalted.

In other words, Hamsa Yoga is possible in respect of all common and the movable signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

The assumption here is that Lagna is also a Kendra or quadrant.

Those born in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) cannot possess Hamsa Yoga, inasmuch as neither Jupiter's exaltation sign nor own house can be identical with his situation in a Kendra.

The strength of the Yoga is dependent as usual on the strength of Lagna and Jupiter and in which Kendra he is disposed. Obviously, the tenth Kendra is the most powerful.


The ownership of Kendra by Jupiter is not desirable but when Hamsa Yoga is present the general principle loses its significance. As between the situation of Jupiter in a Kendra identical with Swakshetra and a Kendra identical with his uchcha, Hamsa Yoga caused by the latter is preferable inasmuch as even the trace of evil due to Jupiter's quadrangular ownership disappears.

Hamsa Yoga should be very carefully interpreted, as it is supposed to produce a man of sterling character and immense moral fibre."

Vocabulary from Koeln Sanskrit Lexicon

Malavaya:

  • relating or belonging to Malava;

  • a prince or princess of the Malava kingdom

  • Name of a country = Malwa in central India

  • a horse-keeper

  • in music, a partic. Raga

  • a white-flowering Lodhra

  • Clypea Hernandifolia

Quotation from: B.V. Raman. (1991). Three Hundred Important Combinations.


"Definition.

  • Venus should occupy a quadrant which should be his own or exaltation sign.

Results.

The person will have

  • a well-developed physique,
  • will be strong-minded,
  • wealthy,
  • happy with children and wife,
  • will command vehicles,
  • endowed with clean sense-organs
  • and renowned
  • and learned.

Remarks.

Malavya Yoga can come into existence if Venus is exalted in a Kendra or occupies a Kendra which should be his own house.

Malavya Yoga cannot occur with reference to every sign of the zodiac.

Consistent with the nature of Venus, Malavya Yoga will make one resolute, immensely rich and give him happiness from wife and children and fame and name.

Venus is the indicator of conveyances, sensual pleasures, music, dancing, fine arts, luxury and material comforts.

Naturally Malavya Yoga renders one inclined towards all the indications of Venus, with the result that his spiritual advancement and outlook will be in inverse ratio to his material comforts and pleasures.

In other words, while both Hamsa and Malavya are Raja Yoga s, the former makes one more idealistic, spiritual, broad-minded and selfless, while the latter indicates love of pleasure, and a predominantly materialistic outlook of life.


Malavya Yoga can manifest in reference to the various Bhavas as given hereunder for persons born in different Lagnas.

  • First house Seventh house Tenth house

  • Taurus, Libra and Pisces
  • Aries, Scorpio and Virgo
  • Gemini, Leo and Capricorn
  • Sagittarius, Aquarius and

Vocabulary from Koeln Sanskrit Lexicon

Zasya :

  • to be recited or treated as a Sastra;

  • to be praised or celebrated;

  • to be wished, desirable, excellent;

  • good quality, merit

Quotation from: B.V. Raman. (1991). Three Hundred Important Combinations.


"Definition.

Sasa Yoga is given rise to


Results.

One born in this Yoga

  • will command good servants.
  • His character will be questionable.
  • He will be head of a village or a town or even a King,
  • will covet other's riches
  • and will be wicked in disposition.

Remarks.

Here Saturn comes into the picture. He should be exalted in a Kendra or occupy a Kendra being his own house. Birth in movable or fixed signs can give rise to Sasa Yoga by a certain disposition of Saturn.

Naturally, common signs are exempted.

Saturn's inherent nature seems to play a large part in giving rise to the Yoga. Saturn is cruel, mean, undignified and sinful and consistent with these characteristics, the results of Sasa Yoga should be depicted.

The man no doubt becomes famous and happy but his sexual outlook would be perverse. He would be sporting with other men's wives and he would employ every unscrupulous means to gain other's money. Most of our 'war contractors' would perhaps be having Sasa Yoga; otherwise they could not have minted millions at the cost of the poor man.

In interpreting the Sasa Yoga, due consideration should be bestowed on The disposition of the Moon.

If this luminary is free from affliction, then the person having Sasa Yoga will not covet other's wealth nor will he be unscrupulous. Where the Moon is not afflicted, the evil results attributed to Sasa Yoga can have an only 'restricted play'."
