Krishnamurti Paddhati is an excellent system (Paddhati) of astrological predictions conceived & created by The Great Indian Astrology King, late Prof. K.S. Krishnamurti. As you must have experienced that accuracy of the time period of the events is difficult when one uses Traditional/Vedic or any other system. KP can give you a precise YES or NO answer astrologically to your questions. To overcome the above and similar short-comings of the conventional vedic system, KP comes as savior. The position of a planet either benefic or malefic covers a large domain of 30° within a Rasi. K.P. system tends to evolve a system by which the operation of a particular planet in a Rasi, is determined by just not its placement but by the constellation it travels and the sub lord it is positioned in. All planets moving from Vernal Equinox Aries according to the Nirayana system get their results modified as they move in the Zodiac. Thus in the first 13°20’ any planet transiting in Mesha will be influenced by the constellation called Aswini and so on till Revathi in which the planet will be influenced by Mercury. As the duration of the zone 13°20’ for each Nakshatra is a broad zone, they are further classed into nine parts in proportion to their duration as per their Vimshotri Dasa. This is termed as the sub-lord. Normally, Jupiter, Venus, affiliated Mercury and waxing Moon are termed as natural benefics while Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu & Ketu as malefics. But in KP it is determined by sub lord planet is posited in. 1. The planet in a constellation will offer the result of Bhava house occupied by the lord of the constellation. 2. The planet which is situated in a constellation is the strongest to offer the results of the house occupied by the lord of the constellation.. 3. The occupants of a house is strong to give the results of the house occupied by it. Planets in the constellation of the occupants of a Bhava will indicate the fruits of the Bhava. 4.Planet deposited in the constellation of the lord of the sign where the cusp of a house falls. 5. Then only the lord of the sign where the cusp of a house falls. The above form the various significators for the determination of a particular event. Only the conjoined planets of the above should be utilised for determining the end result. Hence it may be concluded that the planet is the resource, constellation indicates nature of the result and the sub is a deciding factor whether the matter is favourable or not. Unless the last is favourable we do not call it a benefic. Note:- Rahu & Kethu are Nodes. A node signifies firstly the results of the planet or planets with which It Is conjoined, then the results of lord of the constellation in which It is deposited, then the planet or planets aspecting it and lastly of the owner of the sign in which it is deposited.
