Contents ofA retrospective study of Physician profession based on Natal Horoscope with special reference to Ayurveda Vaidya By Dr.Kethamakka Siva Rama Prasad, (M.A. Jyotisham (correspondence course) in 1999 -2001) Introduction Page 1 Literary review Page 6 Data and Observations Page 17 Discussion and Conclusion Page 30 Summary Page 44 References and BibliographyIntroduction Jyotish is a Sanskrit term derived from two roots; Jyoti, which means light, andIsha, which means Lord or God. Jyotish then literally means the lord of Light, with specialreference to the Sun, Moon, Stars and Planets1 . It is a science of the study of heavenlylights and their effects on human life. Atma jyoti parama dhama (+Éi¨É VªÉÉäÊiÉ {É®Æú vɨÉÇ) means that Atma (the soul) or pureawareness is also the light and that one should seek to attain that light of life with the helpof Jyotish. Jyotish helps to achieve the four main goals of human life; Dharma (religiousmerit), Artha (acquiring wealth), Kama (worldly enjoyment) and Moksha (liberation). Itgoverns not only individual life but also global affairs as well. The study of the influence oflight on every living and non-living thing is the science of Jyotish. The word astrology has the same roots; ‘Astro’ refers to the stars (the source oflight) and ‘logos’ science. Everything in the universe is moving and changing, and thatwhich is moving is bound by time. Stars are luminous bodies radiating energy into space.The rays of light, then, come from the stars and planets, which are surrounded by theirown magnetic and gravitational fields influencing this light. The earth, then, receives thislight. According to ancient Jyotish shastra (scriptures), Saturn is the most distant plan-etary body influencing the earth, and the moon is the nearest. The sun is considered thesoul of our solar system. These light energies coming from the sun, moon, planets andstars all separately influence the physical, environmental, mental and spiritual status ofall beings. This light also effects the dark recess of distant future. Just consider the factthat the light from many stars began its journey millions of years ago. The ancient science of Jyotish uses accurate mathematical calculations to deter-mine the position (past, present and future) of the heavenly bodies in order to foretell thefuture of individuals and the fate of nations, empires, kingdoms, wars, revolutions andother terrestrial events.
  5. 5. Jyotish believes that man is a creation of the cosmos. From the Ayurvedic standpoint, every human being has a unique body type, called Prakruti. Jyotish also believesthat everyone has a unique planetary constitution. This combination governs the entirepsychosomatic make-up of an individual. The unique combination of every individual de-pends entirely upon the specific time and place of physical birth. So it is very important tocheck in the kundali (astrological chart) for personal compatibility before marriage, inorder to bring clarity, communication and success in marital life. People should plan wellin advance for conception, building a house or beginning any auspicious work accordingto the most favorable planetary positions. Just as imbalance of bodily Dosha causes disease, likewise the undesirable effectof certain planets can become a causative factor in iii-health. According to Ayurveda,every individual has seven bodily tissues, and according to Jyotish, the different planetsinfluence them. For instance, the sun influences consciousness and eyes, the moon gov-erns the mind, mercury the intellect, and Jupiter supervises knowledge. Mars is related tothe blood and lever, Saturn rules the neuro-muscular systems. Venus governs the repro-duction system and artistic talent. Jyotish can be studied under several different aspects: astro – physiology, psy-chology, etiology, pathology, symptomatology and therapeutics. Like any other vedic dis-cipline, the study of Jyotish needs the guidance and blessing of a guru (one who hasmastered the subject) in order to have the insight to read and interpret the Jyotish char. Itis a wonderful healing science, which can suggest certain stones, gems, crystals andmetals in order to balance the undesirable effects of the planets. Jyotish also advises fasting on certain days to lessen these negative effects. It canalso recommend a proper mantra, aspect of god to worship, Yagya (fire ceremony) andcertain spiritual rituals in order to neutralize karmic and planetary effects. In the true sense of the word, the science of Jyotish embraces the whole humanbeing in order to bring health, happiness and harmony in personal relationships and inthe business world. On the other hand the definition of Jyotish reefers to light in whichidentification of stars in the sky is done. VªÉÉäÊiɹÉÉÆ ºÉÚªÉÉÇnùÒxÉÉÆ ¤ÉÉävÉEÆò ¶ÉɺjÉÆ This science is referred as Nakshatra vidya, from Chandodyojyopanishat2 . Jyotishexplains about planetary movement and their impact on the earth, atmosphere, and indi-viduals. This science is firmly established in to the human life with all auspicious and inaus-picious activities. This science infers the activities of individuals based on the planetarypositions and obtains the results as directed by the experts of Astrology, such as Parashara,Jaimini, etc. The human life is divided into four stages, Balya, Koumara, Yavana and Vardhakya.In the Balya and Koumara it goes in learning and knowing the surroundings where as inYavana as human is a being of society undergoes the land marks of life as getting marriedand having the children and so on. To maintain the family man needs the activity of earning, the profession. The pro-fession is either depends upon the interest of individual or may become compulsory towork with in the situation. The profession is different from that of art. There are 64 kala(Arts) have mentioned along with Veda, Vedanga, Upanishat, etc. The profession and knowledge are of two different entities. Occasionally knowl-
  6. 6. edge of various sciences related to one profession but always the profession exerts theexpertise of one science. The profession, now a day is different from that of ancient days.Previously it was related to Shadanga such as Sikha, Vyakarana. Present day Macaly’seducation system changed the attitudes of Jyotish to choose and search for the newcombinations and permutations of the each and every aspect of Astrology. In this proce-dure an elucidation of the prospective and retrospective subjective study is very muchnecessary.Study design The present study is designed as retrospective study of the observation of handfulof Ayurvedic Physicians. It also has the prospective observation of the textual scripturesrelated to the profession of Physician of different cadres of applicability. In this study 24 established Ayurvedic physicians are covered irrespective of thesex incidence. All the physicians are categorized in two sections as such post graduatesand graduates. Another section of criteria is working as lecturers or practitioners. Thesegroups are studied widely under the instructions of the said literatures of Astrology andrules applied for it. Apart from this the observation is made with 24 horoscopes to estab-lish the rule to posses the qualification under the rational study. Literary review Out of the professions “Vaidya” the physician is having a place of supernumerary.Thus the Ayurvedic physician profession is selected for the study, which is protecting andsafe guarding the traditional sciences of India and has linkage between Jyotish and Vedavedangas. Whenever we look in to any aspect study in Astrology we have to consider Bhava,Bhavadhipathi and Karaka graha. ¦ÉÉ´ÉÉä ¦ÉÉ´É{ÉÊiɶSÉ EòÉ®úEòJÉMÉ: This gives us immense idea to accentuate the true positions of planets with re-spect to the determination of the facts from a horoscope. Out of the 12 bhava, the 4th, 5th, and 10th bhavas are considered here for the evalu-ation of the profession. The second bhava even though said in grandhantara as - Ê´ÉkÉÆ xÉäjÉÆ ¨ÉÖJÉÆ Ê´ÉtÉÆ ´ÉÉCEÖò]ÖõƤÉɶÉxÉÉÊxÉSÉVitta, Netra, Mukha, Vidya, Vak, Kutumba and Bhojana1 4 as the factors to be noted for the2nd bhava, we consider 4th, 5th, and 10th bhavas for the emphasizing the profession withspecial reference to Ayurvedic Physician. 5th Bhava enumerates - ªÉÆjÉÆ ¨ÉÆjÉÆ iÉvÉÉÊ´ÉtÉÆ ¤ÉÖqäù¶SÉè´É |ɤÉÆvÉEÆòyantram, mantram, vidya, buddhi and writing the books1 5. The education is always basicand professional. Here at this juncture 4th bhava is 12th to that of 5th bhava which can behindrance factor for the higher education or to that of 5th bhava. That 4th bhava becomesthe Gruha and Aramadikam1 6, where the hospitals or treatment rooms are the influentialfactors to that of the Physician Profession. The Doctors by virtue posses the qualificationof the (B.A.M.S.) Ayurvedic physician, he may not be doing the same work as an AyurvedicPhysician. Thus the evaluation of the 4th bhava is also necessary while evaluating theprofession.
  7. 7. The job or the profession is seen from the 10th house from the natal horoscope. Infurther Dadhamsha is one to look for the professional success in any natal horoscope.10th house not only gives rise the information regarding the profession but also about thejourney or migration to the another place1 7.Observations on Vaidya from Jyotish Sutras The physician has given an important place in the vedic literature. In Jyotish litera-ture like Brihat Parashara hora and Jaimini Sutras the Vaidya are said as two catogoriesas Vaidya and visha Vaidya1 8. Mainly Dhatuvadi1 9 and Rasavadi2 0 terms are used for theVaidya, where a physician works with metals (alchemy). Rasaaushadhi contains Parada(Mercury) and Gandhaka (sulfur). The Dhatuvadi uses these materials. Dhatuvadi in otherterms can understand as a person who converts the lower metals to higher metals, suchas copper to Gold.The necessary qualifications of a superintendent of the royal kitchen A king should appoint a physician for the royal kitchen (to superintend the prepara-tions of the royal fare). He should be well paid and possess the following qualifications.He should come of a respectable family, should be virtuous in conduct, fondly attached tothe person of his sovereign, and always watchful of the health of the king. He should begreed less, straight-forwards, god-fearing, and grateful of handsome features, and de-void of irascibility, roughness, vanity, arrogance and laziness. He should be forbearingself-controlled, cleanly, compassionate, well-behaved, intelligent, capable of bearing fa-tigue, well meaning devoted, of good address, cleaver, skillful, smart, artless, energeticand marked with all the necessary qualifications (of a physician) as described before. Heshould be fully provided with all kinds of medicine and be highly esteemed by the mem-bers of his profession1 2.Jaimini version of Visha Viadya If Rahu is in karakamsha the person becomes Visha Vaidya. He may become aphysician deals with poisons or may become as physician to look after king with otheryogas present in his horoscope.Qualities of a physician (Visha Vaidya) A physician should have the following qualities.

Nobody can comprehend fully about the plants only by knowing (their) namesor forms. He is the real knower of them who, after knowing the name and form has gotknowledge of their administration, let alone the one who knows plants in all aspects. He isthe best physician who knows administration of these (plants) according to place andtime and also keeping in view the individual constitution3 .Pada Chatustaya (Four Quadrants) in Ayurveda Physician, drug, attendant and patient, this is the quadruple which, if endowed withqualities, leads to alleviation of disorders4 .
  8. 8. Abnormality (disorder) is non-equilibrium of Dhatus and their equilibrium is nor-malcy (health). Health is known, as happiness while disorder is unhappiness. Employ-ment of all the excellent four – physician etc. – in case of disorder of Dhatus with theobject of (re-establishing) there equilibrium is said as therapeutics5 .Qualities of a physician Excellence in theoretical knowledge, extensive practical experience, dexterity andcleanliness-this is the quadruple of qualities of a physician.Qualities of drugs Abundance, effectivity, various pharmaceutical forms and normal composition-theseare the four qualities of drugs.Qualities of an attendant Knowledge of attendance, dexterity, loyalty and cleanliness-these are four quali-ties of an attendant.Qualities of a patient Memory, obedience, fearlessness and providing all information about the disorder-these are the qualities of a patient.Different planets with their Karakas in Jyotish Planet gives rise their karakas effects according to their individual strengths, place-ment and Avasta. In this shadbala or vimshopaka bala is valued and effects are explained.The individual karakas of Grahas concerned to the topic “A retrospective study of Physi-cian profession based on Natal Horoscope with special reference to Ayurveda Vaidya”are as follows. SNo Planet Effects (Karakatwa) 1 Sun(Surya) Specialist in Medicine, Vetarnary Medicine, treatment of Bones (Orthopedic), Plant Study (Botany or Dravyaguna Shastra In Ayurveda), Jeevashastra (Zoology), Forestry, Mano Vijnana (psychiatry), Netra Chikitsa (Ophthalmology), Mastishka chikitsa (Neurology), Jalajantu Vijnana (Marinology), etc. 2 Moon (Chandra) Specialist in Chikitsa Vijnanam (Mano & Hridaya Roga - psychiatry & cardiology), Danta Vijnana (Dental science), Oushadha Nirmana (Pharmacy), etc. 3 Mars (Kuja) Specialist in Khanija Vijanana (Metallurgy - Rasa shastra in Ayurveda), surgery (Shalya tantra), Rati roga ( Sexually trans- mitted diseases), etc. 4 Mercury (Budha) Specialist in Samshodhana (research), Chest diseases, skin diseases, Impotency, Vaidya Jyotisham, etc. 5 Jupiter (Guru) Specialist in Adhyapanam (teaching), tarka, memamsa, nyaya (these are the fundamentals of Ayurveda - Basic Prin- ciples), etc. 6 Venus (Sukra) Specialist in Sukha roga (STD), stree roga (gynecology), Bala roga (pediatrics), etc. 7 Saturn (Sani) Specialist in Asti roga (bone disorders), vata prakopa (All Nerve and Musculo skeletal disorders), cancer, Tuberculo- sis, STD, etc. 8 Dragons Specialist in smashana Rakshana (Forensic science), Sarpa Head(Rahu) jeevita (Toxicology), Mano Vijnana (psychiatry), yantara vadi (user of electrical or electronic instruments) etc. 9 Dragons tail (ketu) Specialist in Mano Vijnana (psychiatry), Pasu chikitsa (veterinary science), etc
  9. 9. Importance of Physician This quadruple consisting of sixteen qualities is the cause of success but here alsothe physician is the main because of his having specific knowledge, administrative andmanaging positions. As in the act of cooking, utensils, fuel and fire and in victory of thevictorious land, army and weapons are causative factors, similarly, in the success of aphysician in treatment (of disorders) patients etc, are mentioned as causative factors.Thus the physician is the principal cause out of drug, attendant and patient. As earth, stick, wheel, thread etc. do not serve the purpose (of making a pitcher)without the potter, the other three legs (drug, attendant and patient) are in the sameposition without the physician. That extremely severe disorders vanish like the (imaginary) city of Gandharvasand even simplest disorders aggravate in want of quick management in spite of the threeother legs being existent, confirms that the learned and the ignorant physicians are re-sponsible for the above two consequences respectively. It is better to self-immolate than to be treated by an ignorant (physician). As a blindman moves about with the help of the movement of his hands and as a boat under storm,the ignorant physician, due to ignorance, proceeds in the therapeutic management withtoo much fear (and lack of confidence)6 . Such one regarding himself as physician cures by chance a diseased person whoselife span is certain but, on the other hand, kills hundreds having uncertain life span.Hence, a physician devoted to these four-scriptures, understanding, application and prac-tical experience is known as one who promotes life7 . The physician who possesses the knowledge of the four aspects- · cause, · symptoms, · cure and · prevention of diseases, - is the best one and is fit for a king.Relative Degree of Physician Weapon, scripture and water depend on their recipient for consequent merits anddemerits. So, (a physician) should purify his intellect for treatment (of patients). Learning,rationality, specific knowledge, memory, devotion and action-one that possess these sixqualities, nothing remains unachievable for him. Learning, wisdom, practical knowledge, experience, accomplishment and popular-ity-out of these even one quality is sufficient to give significance to the degree of Vaidya.The one who possesses all the auspicious qualities like learning etc. deserves to hold thehonorable degree of Vaidya who showers happiness on the living beings. Scriptures are like light for illumination and own intellect is like eye, endowed prop-erly with both these factors, the physician while treating (a patient) does not commit mis-takes. Because in treatment, the (other) three legs are dependent on the physician, hencethe physician should make all efforts to enrich his qualities. Friendliness and compassion towards the diseased, attachment to the remediableand indifference to those who are moving towards end-this is the fourfold attitude of thephysician8 .Types of therapy There are three types of therapy – spiritual, rational and psychological. The spiri-tual therapy consists of recitation of mantras, wearing roots and gems, auspicious acts,
  10. 10. offerings, gifts, oblations, following religious precepts, atonement, fasting, invoking bless-ings, falling on (the feet of) the gods, pilgrimage etc. the rational therapy consists ofrational administration of diet and drugs. Psychological therapy is restraint of mind fromthe unwholesome objects9 .Physicians of high descent The lord (Atreya) said-the physicians of high descent, well-versed in scripture,having practical knowledge, expert, clean, skillful, self-controlled, well-equipped, havingall the sense organs (normal), knowers of constitution and course of action be regardedas promoters of vital breath and destroyers of diseases. Such (physicians) are having – · Free from doubt in anatomy, embryology, physiology and pathology, · Distinct knowledge of Aetiology, prodroma, · Suitability in relation to curable, hardly curable, palliable and rejectable dis- eases · Interpreters of the three fold Ayurvedic principle with brevity · As will as details along with the three-fold group of drugs · Applies of thirty-five roots and fruits, · Four fats, five salts eight measures such as head evacuation etc. · Twenty eight gruels, · Thirty-two powder ointments, · Six hundred evacuative and five hundred decoctions · Well-acquainted with the conduct prescribed for the healthy in relation to food · Prescribed for the healthy in relation to and drinks, · Standing, walking, non-suppresion and suppression of urges, · Physical exercise, suitability, · Examination and knowledge about the sense organs and · The conduct of the nobles; · Doubtless in four-legged therapeutics with sixteen qualities, · Nature of disease, · Three desires, · Knowledge about merits and demerits of Vata, · Capable in management of four-fold unction with twenty four media and sixty four equipment; · Experts in various procedures of various types of measures, · Such as unction, fomentation, emesis, purgation, etc.; · Well versed in head-diseases etc., · Diseases caused by proportional variation of Dosha, · Diminution, boils, abscesses, three swellings, · Various associations of selling, forty eight locations of diseases, · One hundred forty specific diseases, · The despicable over-obese and over-lean along with causes, · Symptoms and treatment, wholesome and unwholesome sleep, · Insomnia and over-sleep along with the causes and treatment, · Six measures reducing etc.; · Symptoms and therapeutic management of blood disorders and also of mada, murchha and samnyasa, · Well-acquainted with dietetic considerations, · Food items wholesome and unsholesome by nature,

Endowed with such qualities, Angivesa are promoters of vital breath and de- stroyers of diseases1 0. The measure of life is known by the adventitious pathological symptoms in relationto objects, sense organs, mind, intellect, movement etc. such as one will die after a mo-ment, hour or day; three five, seven, ten or twelve days, a fortnight, month six months ora year. Swabhava (becoming own self), pravrttyuparama (cessation of activities), Marana(death) anityata (non-eternality), nirodha (annihilation)-all are synonymous. This is themeasure of life. Contrary to this is non-measure, which is described in the context ofaristas (sudden appearance of fatal signs). In Ayurveda, the measure of life has alsobeen described according to the body constitution1 1.

  25. 25. Discussion and Conclusion The Astrology, since the beginning it was claimed as the science with intuitiveness. Thepresent study deals with the profession, especially with that of the medical profession withspecial reference to that of Ayurvedic Physician. In the study it was not studied in the traditionalform but dealt under the shadow of modern scientific statistical methodology to evaluate thesignificance of the possibilities to become Ayurvedic physician. Chiefly for declaring the profession Astrology considers the 10th bhava out of the 12bhavas. But on the other hand the other bhavas doesn’t have less significance. Out of thehoroscope all bhavas are equally responsible to construct an equilibrated effect in the life of theperson. In such case, some times it looks absurd to study few of the aspects for the study,where cumulative effect of the horoscope speaks the ultimate result. Standard textbook claims the profession through 10th bhava and its basis through the 5thhouse, which is said as the study, required for the professional success. Apart from the natalhoroscope study the varga study is also required, such as Dashamsha. Many Astrologers giveout the declaration only after careful study of the many aspects such as Rasi, Navamsha,Dashamsha, Shadvargu, Vimshopaka Bala, Bhavadhipathi, Bhavadhipathi placement, Karakagraha, Karaka graha placement, their negativism and positivism etc. Here at the present study at the references of the astrological scripts 4th lord, 5th lord,and 10th lord are considered along with the karaka graha as sun. The karakatwa of the planetalso elucidated at the present study.Sun percentage in Natal Chart The graph -1 explains the sun as the karaka, explains its placement in the natal chart. Inthis the study is made to the sun position, whether it is in exhalation or debilitation etc. thedetailed chart is shown in table number - 4. The sun position as positive, neutral and negativebasis when it is studied it gives 49% of the positive percentage (Moola trikona, Exalted, Own
  26. 26. house, Greate friend and friend house). On the other hand the negative percentage is of 25%(Debilitated, Enemy and great enemy). The neutral percentage is of 26%. The detailed percent-age chart is as follows. Graph -1 Graph Showing Sun percentage in Natal Chart
  27. 27. 4th lord percentage in taken samples In the second graph the 4th lordship is discussed. The fourth lord is dependent upon thelagna of the natal horoscope. The fourth lord is said as the basic education and it explains thearea of living. It is explained as matru and gruha. It also becomes the 12th placement for that of 5thhouse, so it can become the retardate factors (pratibandhaka bhava) to that of 5th house. Thus ithas importance in the study of profession. The data is as follows. Graph -2 th Graph Showing of 4 Lord percentage in taken samples
  28. 28. 5th lord percentage in taken samples The graph -3 discusses the 5th lord placement in the present study. The 5th lord is said tobe the chief placement in the natal horoscope to discuss the professional study. In this mercuryand Venus has shown relatively more percentage then that of the sun who is said as karaka. Butin the Sastras almost all the planets are considered for the different groups of faculties, which areembedded, in the medical profession. There by it is difficult to attribute a single planet to that ofthe Ayurvedic profession. The study shows the following data. Graph -3 th Graph Showing of 5 Lord percentage in taken samples
  29. 29. 10th lord percentage in taken samples The graph -4 discusses the 10th lord placement in the present study. The 10th lord is saidto be the chief placement in the natal horoscope to discuss the professional success. In thisSaturn has shown relatively more percentage then that of the sun who is said as karaka. But inthe Sastras almost all the planets are considered for the different groups of faculties, which areembedded, in the medical profession. There by it is difficult to attribute a single planet to that ofthe Ayurvedic profession. The study shows the following data. Graph -4 Graph showing of 10th Lord percentage in taken samples
  30. 30. Lagna in Natal Horoscopes Graph -5 shows the lagna interference to that of Ayurvedic Profession. In this differentrashis are considered in the retrospective study of the present study. When Simha and its lordSurya are considered as the karaka for the Ayurvedic profession, the study reveals that eitheras 4th, 5th and 10th lords connections to the natal Lagna, the result is as follows. In this studymajor lagnas are mesha as it have simha as 5th lord’s house, Vrishabha as it have Simha as 4thlord’s house and for the Vrischika as Simha becomes 10th house. Apart from these Makara hasshown remarkable percentage 12.5% even though simha becomes 8th house for it. Furtherelucidation has to be made to rule out this confusion.

  32. 32. Chandra Lagna in Natal HoroscopesGraph - 6 shows the Chandra lagna interference to that of Ayurvedic Profession. In this differentrashis are considered in the retrospective study of the present study. When Simha and its lordSurya are considered as the karaka for the Ayurvedic profession, the study reveals that eitheras 4th, 5th and 10th lords connections to the natal chandra Lagna, the result is as follows. In thisstudy major lagnas are mesha as it have simha as 5th lord’s house, Vrishabha as it have Simhaas 4th lord’s house and for the Vrischika as Simha becomes 10th house. Apart from these Makarahas shown remarkable percentage 12.5% and Kumbha shown 16.7%, even though simha be-comes 8th house and 7th house respectively for it. Further elucidation has to be made to rule outthis confusion. The over all appreciation of this study reveals that the decision of profession declarationcan not be fitted in to the modern scientific study. The science is more of intuitive and has manyrules and sub rules to declare the final result, then that of mere mathematical calculations. But out of the experience in the study it can be said as the interference of Sun and itsNatal sign Leo (Simha) are important to have an idea of joining in to the Ayurvedic Profession.People those who have the sun implication more are good in the practice of Ayurveda, others arepracticing the modern medicine and could not fix themselves as Ayurvedic practitioners.

  34. 34. Summary Jyotish then literally means the lord of Light, with special reference to the Sun, Moon,Stars and Planets. It is a science of the study of heavenly lights and their effects on human life.The word astrology has the same roots; ‘Astro’ refers to the stars (the source of light) and ‘logos’science. The earth, then, receives this light. Jyotish helps to achieve the four main goals of human life; Dharma (religious merit), Artha(acquiring wealth), Kama (worldly enjoyment) and Moksha (liberation). It governs not only indi-vidual life but also global affairs as well. The study of the influence of light on every living andnon-living thing is the science of Jyotish. This science is firmly established in to the human life with all auspicious and inauspiciousactivities. The profession and knowledge are of two different entities. Occasionally knowledge ofvarious sciences related to one profession but always the profession exerts the expertise of onescience.Study design: The present study is designed as retrospective study of the observation of handful ofAyurvedic Physicians. Out of the professions “Vaidya” the physician is having a place of supernu-merary. Thus the Ayurvedic physician profession is selected for the study, which is protecting andsafe guarding the traditional sciences of India and has linkage between Jyotish and Veda vedangas. Out of the 12 bhava, the 4th, 5th, and 10th bhavas are considered here for the evaluation ofthe profession. Vitta, Netra, Mukha, Vidya, Vak, Kutumba and Bhojana as the factors to be notedfor the 2nd bhava, we consider 4th, 5th, and 10th bhavas for the emphasizing the profession withspecial reference to Ayurvedic Physician. Here at this juncture 4th bhava is 12th to that of 5th bhava which can be hindrance factor forthe higher education or to that of 5th bhava. That 4th bhava becomes the Gruha and Aramadikam,where the hospitals or treatment rooms are the influential factors to that of the Physician Profes-sion. The Doctors by virtue posses the qualification of the (B.A.M.S.) Ayurvedic physician, hemay not be doing the same work as an Ayurvedic Physician.
  35. 35. Qualities of a physician Excellence in theoretical knowledge, extensive practical experience, dexterity and clean-liness-this is the quadruple of qualities of a physician. The lord (Atreya) said-the physicians of high descent, well-versed in scripture, havingpractical knowledge, expert, clean, skillful, self-controlled, well-equipped, having all the senseorgans (normal), knowers of constitution and course of action be regarded as promoters of vitalbreath and destroyers of diseases. Apart from the natal horoscope study the varga study is also required, such as Dashamsha.Here at the present study at the references of the astrological scripts 4th lord, 5th lord, and 10thlord are considered along with the karaka graha as sun. When Simha and its lord Surya are considered as the karaka for the Ayurvedic profes-sion, the study reveals that either as 4th, 5th and 10th lords connections to the natal Lagna, theresult is as follows. In this study major lagnas are mesha as it have simha as 5th lord’s house,Vrishabha as it have Simha as 4th lord’s house and for the Vrischika as Simha becomes 10thhouse.Study reveals - The 4th, 5th and 10th lords and occupants study is needed to state the profession Simha Rashi and Sun influence is there on Ayurveda Profession.
