Bhaava/Rashi Kaaraka

|| Om Gurave Namah ||

Dear Friends,
Just as small refresher on Kaarakas, If you read Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, The Kaaraka (Doers) are defined in first few chapters until the last shloka in Divisional Considerations chapter. Further after on Karakatwa chapter more elaboration is done on tasks done by each graha in nature and in each bhaavas.

The first few chapter define the natural significance of each graha, Later in kaarakatwa chapter Maharishi Parashara defines Atmakaaraka etc(Charakaaraka) and Sthira kaaraka. Thus every graha creates, sustaines and destroys due to they being controlled by Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara.

The individuals/people are controlled by Grahas,
The activities are controlled by Bhaava(emotion/nature) and
The Rashi/Signs gives the the opportunity and results.

Mahararishi Parashara also explains which Grahas perform the tasks for each Bhaava and rashi in our horoscopes.

Let me summarize them in the below table.

Here is a breif explanation of each,

1) Kaala Purusha is time incarnate, He gives the results of Karma. For example, All activities done to Lagna it's fruit is given by Mars. Hence makes you strong. Another example is all activities done to 2nd house gives you results thru Venus, Hence gives you good spouce and conforts. The activities done to maitain a good family is reaped thru Kala Purusha 2nd Lord. Like all karma 10th house work, All hard work done gives the fruit thru a benficial saturn, similarly everything we take (11th) from others the fruit is given thru Saturn or Rahu(natural 11th lord).

2) Bhaava's from Kaaraka:Every kaarka blesses us with something, the houses counted from Kaaraka (doer) shows what blessings we get from each kaaraka, Like 4th from moon gets us the mother, Lagna/self/1st house is gift of mother, hence 1st from moon is what we get from mother, The 6th from mercury gives us good relatives and thus reduces enmity, the 6th from mercury is gives us strength.

3) Bhaava's kaaraka: Counted from lagna, Each house upliftment is taken care by a graha, For example, The body is made for the soul (Sun), Hence Sun takes care of upliftment of the soul, 2nd from Lagna is controlled by Jupiter, It controls the qualtity we eat and benevolent nature towards the family, etc

Now, The lords from lagna will indicate how the individual is varying from the above precepts. declare good or bad knowing the above precepts.
