~~ Koeln Sanskrit Lexicon


  • A king, sovereign, chief or best of its kind


  • The quality of passion

BPL commentary:


  • Most varieties of Raja Yoga are based in bhava-5, the house of BRILLIANCE: royalty, celebrity, genius, theatre, children, and every expression of divine intelligence in human life.

  • Therefore Raja Yoga gives some variety of "kingly" empowerment in the material world.

  • Raja Yoga can produce social status through intelligence, gamesmanship, mani * money, position, or other skill or attribute which gives the native the ability to influence or enchant others .

  • Raja Yoga which engage the karmesha-10 are a bit more sober, and these involve a heavy duty roster.

BPL commentary:

Like most material effects, Raja Yoga has a downside: the native may become so enchanted with the temporary magic of the present incarnation that one forgets to attend to matters of future birth.

Thus for example one with a great set of Raja Yoga combinations may mistreat others with apparent impunity. Doing evil seems to have no personal consequences for a very powerful person.

However, the re certainly will be consequences, both psychologically in the current life and materially in a future life. Therefore a native who is "blessed" with Raja Yoga must be exceptionally carefully to apply one's powers judiciously. Ideally the native will realize that the empowerment entails serious responsibility to guide and care for others.

However most of the time, sadly, the Raja Yoga native will fall into a temporary bliss of ego-membrane indulgence, absorbing the praise and glamour which attends social positions of power and glory, without understanding that one's choices and their effects while holding such a position have deep ramifications for the future.

Thus when a client asks about the purported "fabulous " Raja Yoga combinations in one's nativity, I often take a stern approach to the method of explaining these predictors.

Without the moral maturity necessary for true compassionate leadership, one who has earned a position of privilege in the social hierarchy can (and do) cause great harm. Folks often have the impression that a Raja Yoga will make life easier, more satisfying, more magical. In fact, considering the ego-driven temptation to misuse the empowerment for selfish purposes, nothing could be farther from the truth.
