'Indu Lagna' is an independent and complete method devised by our ancient
Rishis for finding out specific period of life which will give wealth and prosperity
of an individual irrespective of other Dhana yogas present in the horoscope. The
increase in wealth will be corresponding to Desh-Kal-Patra, that is, according to
status and circumstances of the individual.,/p>
The Moon in Sanskrit is called 'Indu',
hence Indu Lagna should not be confused
with Chandra Lagna (Rashi). Indu Lagna
is calculated with the help of 9th house
lords from Chandra Lagna and Janma
Lagna in the horoscope. Our Rishis have
allotted specific kalas (root numbers)
to the seven planets (except Rahu
and Ketu) for calculating Indu Lagna.
Among others, Acharya Kalidas in Uttara
Kalarita (Ch. IV. 27) has briefly described
the method of calculation of Indu Lagna
and its result as follows:
अर्कान्नागचटस्तनुर्जननटः खेटायनं स्युस्तनो-
श्चन्द्राद्भाग्यपयोः क्लैक्यमिनहृच्छिष्टं विद्योर्यद्गृहम्।
तद्राशौ तु विपापशोभनखगे कोटीश्वरं तन्वते,
चेत्पापे तु सहस्त्रशः खलखगे तुंगेऽपि कोटीश्वरम्।।
meaning, 'The units of brilliance for the
seven plantes are Sun-30, Moon-16,
Mars-6, Mercury-8, Jupiter-10, Venus
-12, and Saturn-1. Take the Kalas of the
lord of the ninth from Lagna and the lord
of the ninth from the Moon. Add them.
Divide it by twelve and take the remainder.
Count the remainder from the Moon sign.
This is Indu Lagna. If there is a benefic
without any melefic, the native become a
multi-millionaire. If there is a malefic, his
wealth is in thousands only. If the melefic
is exalted. he will be multi-millionare."
In Uttara Kalamrita Indu Lagna has been
listed after 'Adhi Yoga' (Ch.IV.26) under
the heading 'owning wealth.' followed by
'Dhan Yoga' (ch.IV.28) and 'Special Dhana
Yogas'. This indicates that the result of
Indu Lagna is independent of other Dhan
Yogas present in the horoscope.
As stated above, we have to note the lords
of the 9th house from Lagna and also from
the Moon Lagna (Rasi). The Kalas (root
numbers) for these two planets are noted
from above details and added. Their sum
total is divided by 12. Ignoring the quotient
we take the remainders. If the sum total of
the two numbers is less than 12, then that
number is treated as remainder. Finally,
we have to count the remainder number
from the Moon sign. The sign arrived at is
called 'Indu Lagna'. when the remainder is
'Zero', the sign before Moon sign is treated
as Indu Lagna. When the remainder is 1,
the Moon sign becomes Indu Lagna; when
the remainder is 2, then 2nd house from
Moon sign becomes Indu Lagna, and so
Analysis of Indu Lagna:
A summary of the views of Acharya Kalidas
and other scholars is as follows:
- The quantum of wealth depends upon
the natural disposition and strength of
the planet (s) located in Indu Lagna. The
planet aspecting, and aspected by the
planet in Indu Lagna, also has a say in
- When a planet is situated in Indu
Lagna, the Dasha period of that planet
gives wealth and prosperity.
- A benefic planet (Jupiter, Venus,
unafflicted Mercury, or waxing Moon)
Indu Lagna gives very good wealth in the
- If two benefic planets (Jupiter and
Venus, waxing Moon, or Jupiter and
Mercury) occupy Indu Lagna, which also
happens to be own sign (Swakshetra)
or one of the benefics located there, the
dasha period of that planet gives excellent
result and makes the native very rich.
- An exalted benefic planet in Indu Lagna
will give sudden enormous wealth during
- If there is no planet in Indu Lagna, then
the planet in Kendra or Trikona from Indu
Lagna, or aspecting it, will give prosperity
in its dasa bhukti, commensurate with its
- A melefic planet in Indu Lagna gives
moderate wealth. A benefic and a melefic
planet in Indu Lagna will give mixed result.
- But an exalted malefic in Indu Lagna
gives very good wealth towards the end of
- Strong 2nd and 11th house from Indu
Lagna also increases wealth manifold.
