In Vedic Astrology there is another way to find when one can become rich. Sage Kalidasa has given a marvelous method to find out when one can become rich in his life. In this method Kalidasa defines a point in horoscope called ‘Indu Lagna’ or Point of wealth or wealth lagna.
In this method Kalidasa assigns particular values to planets. This value is called ‘Graha Kala’. These values are based on the light rays coming from these planets. For example Sun rays are most affecting rays on earth and Saturn rays are the leaset to reach earth. So, Sun is given point 30 and Saturn is given the least, ie 1. I have given other planets point in the below table.
Rahu and Ketu are not given any points in this system. Rahu and Ketu are not actual planets. They are shadow planets. Since these points are based on the light rays from planets, (shadow planets cannot have any light rays) they are not given any points in this method.
How to calculate Indu lagna or wealth ascendant?
Find out the lord of ninth house from Ascendant
Find out the lord of ninth house from Moon
Find the Graha Kala number of both the planets found in step 1 & 2
Add these two Graha Kala numbers
Divide the number by 12
Find the reminder
Based on the reminder, count that many number of houses from Moon. If the reminder is 0 count 12 places from moion sign. This is the Indu lagna for that native.
Let me give an example. Lets calculate Indu lagna for a Cancer ascendant and Taurus Moon sign native.
Ninth lord from ascednat is Jupiter
Ninth lord from Taurus is Saturn
Jupiter and Saturn’s Graha Kala number is 10 and 1 respectively
By adding these two numbers we get 11
11 is divieded by 12
Reminder is 11
Count 11 houses from the moon sign, ie Taurus. It gives Pisces. So, Pisces is the Indu lagna for this native.
Let’s take another example. For Leo ascendant and Sagittarius moon sign native.
Ninth lord from ascednat is Mars
Ninth lord from Moon sign is Sun
Mars and Sun’s Graha Kala number is 6 and 30 respectively
By adding these two numbers we get 36
40 is divided by 12
We get reminder as 0
If the reminder is 0, then you have to count 12 places from moon sign. Count 12 places from the moon sign, ie Sagittarius. We get Scorpio. So, Scorpio is the Indu lagna for this native.
This Indu lagna makes the naitve in his life time. Indu lagna lord and planets occupied in this Indu lagna determines the wealth of the native.
1.Planet which occupies the Indu lagna and which is exalted or in own house or in mool trikon house
2.Planet which occupies Indu lagna in a friendly house
3.Lord of the Indu lagna which is exalted or in Mool trikon house
4.Planets which is associated with Indu lagna
5. Planets which aspect the Indu lagna
6.Planets aspected by the Indu lagna lord.
