Vimsottara Dasas for Sri Rama


Jai Sri Ram!

Vimsottara Dasa System is one of the systems mentioned in Brihat Parasara Hora Sasatra for timing the events in a person’s life.

We start with the elapsed and remaining part of the Janmanakshatra. In the case of Sri Rama, the moon was in the last pada of Punarvasu. See : Date of Sri Rama’s birth as per Balakanda.

This means that 0 to 25% of the Guru Dasa was remaining, ie 0 to 4 years.

First Iteration : Let us initially assume that 4 years were remaining.

Also let us calculate for 120 years .. instead of for 100s of thousands of years as described by Valmiki.

Guru Dasa Sesham : 4 years

Sani Dasa Duration : 19 years. Age at exit : 23 years. (Exile During this period, when Rama was 16 years old (as per balakanda)

Budha Dasa Duration ; 17 years.  Age at exit : 40 years. (Return and Coronation during this period, when Rama was 30 years old: 16 + 14 = 30)

Kethu Dasa Duration : 7 years : Age at exit : 47 years. (Sita’s )

Sukra Dasa Duration : 20 years : Age at exit : 67 years.
