The PDF-page marked KUNDALI contains the D-1 and D-9. The smaller varga are in the VARGA page. There are two pages of the Vimshottari Dasha calendar, covering your schedule from age birth until your age 120 years. As a fun bonus, there is included a world map with various lagna overlaid. (Please note: The worldmap is a popular graphic but it is still an experimental idea within the Jyotishavidya. )

US$_27.00 for each PDF charts package
For clients who may wish to purchase only the chart print-outs for a small number of nativities.
Why? Occasionally a beginning student of Jyotisha may be not yet ready to purchase one's own Jyotisha software, but would like to study a few charts of family members or co-workers.
Please note that this charts package includes ONLY five PDFs comprising the kundali and Vimshottari dasha timeline. It is not a reading and does not include any questions, commentary, discussion, prediction, or evaluation. If you have questions about the meaning of the features of the nativity, please select a reading.
One PDF charts package for one nativity = five documents:
Please provide your accurate birth date, birth place, birth time, and gender
Pls. email Barbara with the birth details after paying via PayPal.
There is no limit on the number of PDF Jyotisha charts that you may order. However if you have a need to produce numerous Jyotisha charts, it's probably time to consider buying your own Jyotisha software :)
Rectification available by previous arrangement only.
THE YEAR OF BIRTH AND THE DATE OF BIRTH must be KNOWN. Only the clock-time can be rectified within a maximum 24-hour range.
Please be advised that rectifications are time-consuming for both the client and the Jyotishi. There is often a cumbersome series of email communications between the Jyotishi and the client while the inquiry is proceeding. The client may need to do some research into public records to find requested dates that can be confirmed, for example an examination passed, diploma earned, or a surgery completed.
The cost is high, reflecting the many hours of skilled work that are required to complete a trustworthy Jyotisha rectification of birth time.
Cost varies according to the size of the time range under consideration.
please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive Barbara's step-1 worksheet
Rectification service produces a conclusive result about the likeliest time of birth based on the timing of the key life events.

All of my Jyotisha readings are offered in pre-recorded audio files, in MP3 format downloadable from the internet.
Customized traditional remedial ratna (jewel) recommendations are provided via PDF attachment to email.
I do not offer in-person readings or telephone readings. In fact, I do not usually even answer my telephone! This practice is necessary for me to preserve my own psychic sanctuary. Thanks for your understanding.
If you are looking for a telephone consultation, I recommend:
Right now, PayPal is the only mechanism by which I can accept payments. I do appreciate that not everyone has a credit card, but unfortunately this is a requirement for my business at the moment.
I hope that some of the sample remedial ratnarecommendations will assist students of the Vidya of Jyotisha to learn to make their own decisions about which ratna are appropriate for which nativities, and why.
Also please consider a very effective alternative to wearing a gemstone, which is "Seva ""conscious service to others ".
Charitable service = Targeted Seva can achieve exactly the same goal as traditional remedial gemstones.
Thanks again for your compliments, and best wishes.
Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotisha
Q: Namaste Barbara
If I choose 2 hour Jyotisha reading, can I ask 5 - 10 question within a year period? and for future year If i have any question how much I have to pay and how many question can I ask? I already received gem recommendation chart from you and I am very happy for this.
I am delighted to know that you are enjoying your Jyotisha gemstone recommendation.
The 5-10 questionsrequested from the querent will be answered during the 2-hour audio reading. One follow-up or clarification question, which should be directly related to the issues discussed in the reading, is included in the price of the reading. That follow-up question may be sent to me at any time following the reading. (Even several years afterward is OK, although quite rare!) The answer to the included single follow-up question is provided via a brief email.
If a question arises regarding the Jyotisha nativity which is not directly related to the initial reading but which does refer to the charts (including varga ) and Vimshottari dasha and that question arises within a year or so following the initial reading, the price for answering that single additional question is found under item 8: additional questions for those who have completed the 2-hour reading.
Wishing you every happiness, and continuing success in your Jyotisha studies,
Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotisha
Q:... Can you please confirm as to whether it is possible for you to give Rahu dasha analysis as I am going through one. I just wanted to know how much you will charge for this. I have just started Rahu -Jupiter ...
Yes I do often focus Jyotisha readings on one particular bhukti. A person who is familiar with the details of one's own Vimshottari Dasha and who can formulate specific questions regarding expectations and concerns for the bhukti effects, may derive great benefit from an evaluation of a single period of the lifetime.
The cost for all initial readings is the same. In the space of 2 hours, the initial reading provides an extensive analysis of the Jyotisha radix and navamsha nativity. If the questions require looking beyond D-1 and D-9, additional varga charts may be considered as well.
If the reading is focused on a single bhukti, it is nevertheless absolutely necessary to examine the entire nativity -- since the results of any planetary period are determined by the angular relationship between the main time-period lord (bhukti pati) and the sub-period lord (antaradasha pati). The relationships between all nava-graha and the bhava lordships must be articulated in order to develop a conclusion as to the predicted effects of interaction within that relationship.
Typically, the reading evaluates the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical effects of each graha, and then consider those effects as they operate in any specific period. Therefore a period with uncomfortable physical auspice may also offer spiritual achievement.
A period which is emotionally exhausting (for example, a Shani bhukti simultaneous with Sade Sati or Shani Ashtamsha ) may indeed result in mental strength and clarity formed in response to the emotional challenge (if for example Budha "filled the vacuum" while Chandra was compromised during the Sade Sati).
I hope that this response is helpful for you. The short answer is that yes, for a client who is generally familiar with the sequence of one's Vimshottari Dasha, to focus on a single Vimshottari period is a good way to structure the reading.
To address as many outstanding questions and anxieties about the period as possible, most client questions should be focused on the anticipated results of the planetary period.
However a full reading is always required to achieve an adequate analysis of any period, long or short, and produce a viable prediction.
After the initial reading, annual updates (or every two years or every three years) may be valuable as the mahadasha progresses. Clients often request an update reading at the onset of each new bhukti within the mahadasha period that they are currently working to optimize.
Wishing you every happiness and best success in your Jyotisha studies,
Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama
Question: How much background information should I provide? I don't want to tell you so much that you figure out who I am from my background info.
The amount of detail provided by the client usually covers several paragraphs (at least) submitted via email. At minimum the reading will answer 5-10 self-written questions, and there is usually some background in those questions. To verify the birth time, it is necessary for the client to provide several milestone dates that mark a Jyotisha timeline. The timeline should describe a sequence of important life events which occur during Vimshottari Dasha periods and during samchara transits that would be expected to generate those types of karaka events.
It helps my analysis to know some background for each of the questions. An example of a question that contains a bit of helpful background might be: "I've been in the shipping industry for 30 years with mixed success, and am now looking at a joint venture involving a new warehouse in an adjacent country. This warehouse will be located in a major shipping port that has a criminal gang presence, and merchandise theft is a constant concern. I've suffered major losses from theft in past years and typically these thefts are inside jobs. We plan to have normal amounts of insurance coverage and guards. What is the prognosis for matters of warehouses and inventory for the next few years?".
Keep in mind that the number of factors that are "readable" in any Jyotisha-mapped environment is classically tallied at 144,000. During any reading, the Jyotishi will be able to comment on only a few dozen of those factors.
You will receive a better reading if you disclose the material facts of your environment, because the Jyotishi will be able to prioritize the factors you need to know about *now*, and select a more specific vocabulary related to your current needs, rather than rely on general terms.
Examples of helpful background information.
Background info helps narrow in on the specific interpretations of the broad terms used in the Jyotisha commentaries. Additional knowledge of the client's material situation is not a trump for a parlor guessing game. Rather, the background details enrich the reading and make the interpretations more valuable by allowing the Jyotishi to select the most specific descriptive vocabulary.
Your specific social identity markers will probably not emerge from the nativity unless you mention your specific job or rank (e.g., "I am presently the chairman of XYZ corporation" or "I was married to ABC public figure"). If privacy is important, you might want to consider using a false name (alias) --- but please do not falsify the birth date, time, or place. With false birth data, the divinatory reading would be useless. I have some high-profile clients who use false names for many of their service relationships, including with their healthcare providers and of course their astrologer.
|Q: Do you offer Astrocartography Readings?|| A:
Thanks for your note. Unfortunately I do not offer “astrocartography” readings. My practice is Jyotisha (not western astrology). Jyotisha readings are designed for listeners who have basic cultural or scholarly knowledge of the interpretive principles of the samayavidya.
Wishing you every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life’s endeavors,
Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotisha
