Accuracy of SSS in Jhora 7.5

Dear friends,

who are not so familiar with SSS, may want to know that in the book Surya sidhhanta, Author says that at the beginning of kaliyuga, all the planets were at starting of zodiac, means zero degree aries. This point is always questioned. And most people didn't believed that it really happened! With drik ganita used one does not get these position when we draw a chart for start of zodiac!!

Narasimha ji answered this query in his recent mail. below is some quote from his mail

If one makes a chart for the *Julian* date -3101 Feb 18 (3102 BC is
represented as -3101) using JHora 7.5, one will NOT see the positions
described by Sreenadh (Ve and Me are in Taurus, Moon at 16 deg Pisces
etc). Sreenadh probably entered wrong data.

One can see for that date that Sun, Moon and Mars are at the beginning
of Aries and Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and Ketu are in the last
degree or two of Pisces. Depending on the time and place used and exact
formulas used for samskaras and other things, planets will basically be
around the zero degree point of the zodiac, which is what you find here.

when we draw this chart using SSS calculations and also SSS ayanamsya, one can find Sun at 2 degree aries, moon at 5 degree aries mars at 7 degree aries. And rest of the planets at last two degrees of pisces. Which is very very close to zero degree of aries. If we do beeja sanskara for that time means about 5100 years ago we will get that these planets will be very close to zero.

Those who dont know, beeja sanskara (a type of modification) is needed in astrology calculations regularly because of many astronomical reasons. after every fixed amount of years some changes are made in calculations so that we the exact positions as per current time. Current calculations we are getting in jhora is for current time frame and for getting such an old chart we need beeja sanskara for that time. which will remove our doubt.

Below is a quote from Respected Ramaswami Sastry's blog about Drig-ganita vs SSS

Drig Ganita Panchanga is based on the physical positions of the planets as observed in the sky ( after applying the constant called ayanamsa ).
Vakya panchanga is based on vakyas (sentences / formulae ) to arrive at the positions of the planets.
Surya siddhanta says that even when formulae are employed to calculate planetary positions, corrections shall be applied by observing the sky on a periodic basis. This is called bija sanskar.
The last correction was done centuries ago. Drig ganita depends on modern astronomical data as those provided by observatories and NASA etc. If you calculate as per vakya panchanga the position of a planet and look in the sky, you will not find that planet at that longitude.

New research features in JHora 7.5 (to be out on 2011 Feb 9/10)

New research features in JHora 7.5 (to be out on 2011 Feb 9/10)

(Mail Sent by PVR Narasimha Rao)


As you may know, Jagannatha Hora 7.5 to be released on 2011 February
9/10 (Ratha Saptami day) will support Sri Surya Siddhanta (SSS) model
for planetary positions.

In addition, there are a couple of research features that I expect to
enable sophisticated research in future (possibly using SSS). For
example, intuitively I stumbled upon one unconventional divisional chart
that throws light on lucky periods in one's work. When I find Vimsottari
dasa in that divisional chart, dasa of a planet in own sign or
exaltation sign or moolatrikona brings important phase in one's career
(irrespective of lagna), almost without a fail. I am optimistic that
there are unconventional divisional charts not mentioned by Parasara,
which may work brilliantly for specific purposes.

Here are the new features for research:

(1) Generic custom divisional chart:

The option to cast a generic custom divisional chart D-N was added, with
any N between 1 and 300. Cyclical charts, as well as non-cyclical charts
with several structures are supported. Either Aries or the sign in which
divisions are being found can be used as the base for mapping divisions
in the sign. Divisions can be mapped to N signs starting from
- the base itself,
- from 1st/7th or 1st/9th or 1st/5th or 1st/11th or 1st/3rd from
base (if base is odd/even)
- from 1st/5th/9th or 1st/9th/5th from base (if base is
- from 1st/4th/7th/10th or 1st/10th/7th/4th from base (if base is

The divisions in even signs can be counted from the end of the sign if
desired (e.g. as in uniform Krishna Mishra navamsa, i.e. 9 divisions of
Ta are mapped to Vi, Le, ..., Aq, Cp, instead of the regular zodiacal
order Cp, Aq, ..., Le, Vi).

This flexible configuration allows one to define and experiment with
several customized divisional chart options not mentioned specifically
by Parasara. There may be some divisional chart variations not mentioned
by Parasara that throw light on specific areas of life!

(2) Custom sub-divisional chart:

The option to cast a generic sub-divisional chart D-mxn (or D-m x D-n)
was added. A divisional chart D-m (e.g. D-9, D-10, D-12, D-16, D-20,
D-24 etc) is taken as the rasi chart and it is further divided into D-n
(e.g. D-9, D-10, D-12 D-16, D-30 etc). As just one specific example, you
can take D-10 as rasi chart and find D-9 in it. It is represented as
D-10xD-9 or just D-10x9. For example, D-10xD-9 may show blessings in
career, while D-10xD-30 may show evils in career.
