Lahiri ayanamsa is what I too recommend.

A simple exercise of verifying past events of one's own horocope lahiri ayanamsa, will greatly help.

however i support a very minor correction of minus 2 or 3 minutes of lahiri.

The Calendar Reforms Committee set up by the Government of India recommended Lahiri Ayanamsa in 1954 and since then it is most widely used.

This has always been a 'bone' for many who were drawn to this wonderful subject of astrology. What amazes one who dispassionately observes the field (one Mega-difficult feat to say the least?) and over many years follows the uha-poha (?) as different doyens say and show their piece(s) in person, in magazines, journals, periodicals (come and gone or replaced by more), earlier on paper but now in silico (web), and even different zodiacs getting introduced (Soorya siddhanta, and a few even using tropical sayana zodiac for jyotish) -- the matter has grown more complex!

A majority of tests (other than Governmental bodies and committee assurances etc) seem to have relied on vimshottary dasha and sometimes tied to the nakshatras as we find them today (they shift over large bodies of time?)!

But, there are so many dashas! More than one recommended as 'dashas for general purposes' and so not 'conditional'? Imagine the amount of work involved in testing it "scientifically"?

And the same applies to the birth-time rectifications that seem to get done on the fly with vimshottari or maybe a couple or three of those?

And then there is that variable known as intuition? How can that variable be controlled in most such scientific tests of ayanamsha (as an example) so that it does not become a *confounder*?

A good number of people are happy using the Lahiri ayanamsha. Others vouch for Krishnamurti's or Raman's. Whichever ayanamsha one feels gives satisfactory results should be used.

Chitrapaksha Ayanamsha is supported by the Shastra. It is also known as Ketki Ayanmansha based on its proponent Vyankatesh Ketkar. NC Lahiri borrowed his ayanmasha. Any variation of Chitrapakshi ayanamsha that is around 24 deg is an offshoot of Chitrapakshi Ayanamsha itself. Any deviation such as ayanamsha's closer to 22deg are not supported by the Shastra.
Rest up to you and your judgment.

Hello,
I have Jagannath Hora version 8 .
When you say Lahiri Ayanmansa, what is the option:

- Surya Siddantha and then True Lahiri ?
- Surya Siddantha and then Traditional Lahiri?
- Dripk Siddantha and then True Lahiri?
- Drip Siddantha and then Tradiitional Lahiri?

I am new in astrology and and i am confuse with this 4 options.

thank you

If you want to use Lahiri Ayanamsa, you need to select Drik Siddhantha and Traditional Lahiri or True Lahiri (Chitra Paksha) Ayanamsha. (Both are almost same with just minor variation)

Lahiri is the one used by most astrologers but however I am not sure it yields the best results. Many times when there is Sandhi, Lahiri does not prevail. It is however the most easiest one to use as you can generate a Lahiri horoscope very easily as almost every astrology based site supports it. I would like to know which system astrologers of yore used to follow before 50-60 years before the advent of computers.

In Tamil Nadu, we also use Vaakya Panchangam which differs a bit and in most horoscopes I've seen 2 sign changes and in strange cases even 3 signs being off. In my own horoscope, 2 signs differ viz Jupiter and Mars. The Jupiter transit happens earlier and the Saturn transit takes place later as per Vakya and that's the method used in the thumb impression based Nadi astrology. Somehow I feel it tends to give closer results to BV Raman and Pushya Paksha Ayanamsa. If you want to go with majority, it's advisable to go with Lahiri but when planets are at the end or early degrees, it's best to verify events as opposed to taking a wild shot of just using Lahiri blindly.
