KP Basics

(K.P.) Krishnamurti Paddhati (KP System) :

This 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 pin-pointing of the timing of the events is rather difficult (? impossible) when one uses Vedic or any other system.

At the same time in cases of Twin Births the charts of then two persons will remain almost same in Vedic system. However there is always a lot of difference in them.

If you want a precise 'YES' or 'NO' answer astrologically then it is also difficult in conventional astrology.

In conventional horary astrology if two or more people approach to you at the same time then it again becomes very difficult to give accurate predictions as their charts will remain the same.

To overcome the above and similar short-comings of the conventional vedic system, KP comes as saviour.

Major Differences From Vedic :

  • KP system gives importance to the Constellations / Stars / Nakshatras divisions of the Zodiac which is obviously the most desired for precision.
  • Further it divides each Constellation / Star / Nakshatra division into further 9 subdivisions called 'SUBS'. These sub divisions are not equal divisions, but are as per the Vimshottari Dashas Divisions System.
  • K.P. System uses K.P. Ayanamshas as opposed to Lahiri Ayanamshas mostly used in Vedic System. The difference between two is about 6 minutes (Kala).
  • This system uses Cusps that is house/ bhav beginnings like Western Systems, as opposed to Vedic System which uses House Centres i.e. Bhav Madhyas.
  • This system uses Placidus House system.
  • The planet in it's dasha gives results as per it's Nakshtra-Swami (Star-Lord) rather than the planet itself.
  • Whether the above results will be benefic or malefic will be decided by the Planet's SUB.
  • Hence Planet is represents the SOURCE, that Planet's Star-Lord represents the EFFECTS, RESULTS and that Planet's Sub gives idea of the FINAL DIRECTION of that result.
  • RULING PLANETS : Unique Concept of KP for Powerful Divine Guidance during predictions..

Zodiac Division - Sign, Star and Sub

Zodiac is an imaginary belt encircling the heavens within which are all the planets. As we know in mathematics a circle is of 360 degree. When this circle is divided into 12 equal parts of 30 degrees, each part is called a sign. We have already talked a little bit about signs. When this circle is divided in 27 equal parts of 13 degree 20 minutes, each part is called a Star or a Nakshatra. If we divide a star further into nine parts, this 9th division of a star is called a 'Sub'. This 'Sub' is the real backbone of KP System. We have already talked about the lord of a sign and the lord of the star above. As lord (owner) of a sign is called 'Sign lord', similarly lord of a star is called 'Star lord' and the lord of a sub is called 'Sub lord'. 'Sub lord' is calculated on the basis of years allocated to each of the 9 planets in Vimshottari Dasa system. The years allocated to each planet in Vimshottari Dasa System are as follows -

Planet

Years Allocated

Ketu

7

Venus

20

Sun

6

Moon

10

Mars

7

Rahu

18

Jupiter

16

Saturn

19

Mercury

17

120


You can notice the difference in the sequence of the planets noted above. This is the sequence used in Vimshottari Dasa. Ketu is listed first here because Ketu owns Ashwini star, the first star of the zodiac, followed by Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury.

In each star, first sub lord is the planet that owns the star and then it is followed by the remaining eight planets in Vimshottari Dasha planet sequence. For example,

If Ashwini is the star which is owned by Ketu, the first sub lord in Ashwini star will be Ketu, the second sub lord will be Venus, the third sub lord will be of Sun and so on.
If Bharani is the star which is owned by Venus, the first sub lord in Bharani star will be Venus, the second sub lord will of Sun, the third sub lord will be of Moon and so on.

You can notice that there is no name given to a sub like we have given the names for signs and stars. What we are mostly cocerned about is the lord of that sub i.e. sub lord.

The span of a sub lord can be calculated as follows -

Span of a Sub Lord = (Years of Planet in Vimshottari Dasa/ 120) X 13 degree 20 minutes

as 13 degree 20 minutes can also be written as 800 (13 X 60 + 20) minutes, for simplicity of calculation, we can say -

Span of a Sub Lord (in minutes) = (Years of Planet in Vimshottari Dasa/ 120) X 800

based on this we can calculate the span of each sub lord as follows -

Span of a Sub Lord Ketu = (7 / 120) X 800 = 46.6666 = 0 degree 46 minutes 40 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Venus = (20 / 120) X 800 = 133.3333 = 2 degree 13 minutes 20 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Sun = (6 / 120) X 800 = 40 = 0 degree 40 minutes 00 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Moon = (10 / 120) X 800 = 66.6666 = 1 degree 6 minutes 40 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Mars = (7 / 120) X 800 = 46.6666 = 0 degree 46 minutes 40 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Rahu = (18 / 120) X 800 = 120 = 2 degree 0 minutes 0 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Jupiter = (16 / 120) X 800 = 106.6666 = 1 degree 46 minutes 40 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Saturn = (19 / 120) X 800 = 126.6666 = 2 degree 6 minutes 40 seconds
Span of a Sub Lord Mercury = (17 / 120) X 800 = 113.3333 = 1 degree 53 minutes 20 seconds

Above can be summarized in a tabular format as follows -
