Important Observations From SARVATO-BHADRA Chakra

The Sarvato-Bhadra Chakra is a wonderful predictive tool – which has been developed and perfected by the ancient Indian Sages. Down the ages, it had been known, experimented with, and extensively used for divining the possible future outcome in respect of various important matters that concern the people in general greatly. It can be effectively used for identification of personal problems (Natal Astrology), identification of national problems (Mundane Astrology), selecting auspicious Muhurtas (Electional Astrology), answering various Prashnas of serious nature (Horary Astrology), forecasts about the market trends (Commercial Astrology), etc. Curious people's profound interest in this Chakra has ever since been steadily increasing by leaps and bounds.


Like Kota Chakra, the Sarvato-Bhadra Chakra is also based on 28 Nakshatra-system (including the tiny tot Abhijit); but the similarity ends here. Whereas Kota Chakra has a relatively simple structure – consisting of 3 boundaries, 4 regions, 28 nakshatras, 9 planets, and 2 types of paths (entry and exit) only, SBC accommodates a host of Astrological particulars – which no other Chakra contains. In the preliminary stages, anyone might become almost bewildered upon finding that it accommodates 7 Weekdays (in 5 Categories), 15 Tithis (in 5 Classes), 12 Rashis, 28 Nakshatras, 16 Vowels, and 20 Consonants in its main 'body' portion; besides, it also contains 12 Rashis, 108 Navamshas (= 12 * 9), and 112 Nakshatra-Padas (= 28 * 4) in its outer 'border' region.


Apparently, the Sarvato-Bhadra Chakra looks like an extremely complex configuration consisting of too many blocks, and too much of details of Astrological particulars sequentially distributed among those blocks. It is mainly used for delineation of results of Transits of Planets with reference to the 'Birth' horoscopes in case of personal matters, and or installation/ inauguration horoscopes in case of national matters, etc. It should be duly noted that very dependable information on various aspects of life could be effectively divined from it.


This Chakra mainly consists of two regions – one is the main 'body' region, and the other is the 'border' region. The 'border' part actually consists of 4 segments – and these are but the extensions of the main body in four directions: East portion is above the top, South portion on the right side, West is below the bottom, and North is on the left. … It should be observed that the indicated directions are not marked as per the directions attributed in geographical maps (where the top always points at the North) – although the sequence of the directions remains the very same in both the cases (in clockwise manner, North > East > South > West).


The problem of selecting the consonant correctly:

As in Sarbato-Bhadra Chakra, only 20 consonants are used (where the first one 'A' is rather a vowel), selecting the appropriate consonant many a times proves to be a rather difficult task – as in many Indian languages (like Hindi, Bengali, etc), the actual number of consonants is twice of this figure (The number of letters = 56; our alphabet consists of 16 Vowels and 40 Consonants).

The Consonant corresponding to the person will be picked up from the first letter of the person's first name. If the person has more then one names, then that name by which the person is most popularly known should be used. If the first letter of the name is a compound letter (as in the name 'Kshitish'), then the nearest sounding letter should be taken (as 'Kha' is to be used in case of 'Kshitish'). In case of the name 'Gyani' (which should rather be spelt as 'Gnani'), the spelling of the first letter is the compound letter is 'Gna' (= Ja + Na); but as its first part is pronounced more akin to 'Ga', it is to be taken (serial no. 52). As we are concerned more with the pronunciation sound rather than the spelling (as written in languages of non-Indian origin), due care should be exercised while selecting the appropriate consonant.


Thus, in case of the names like Cyril or Cecil, the corresponding consonant will be 'Sa' (serial no. 53) – as these names are pronounced quite similar to Siril or Sisil; but in case of Charles or Chandan, the corresponding consonant will be 'Cha' (serial no. 55). In case of names like Dilip or David, there is difference between the two D's – as in Hindi, Bengali, etc Indian languages, the former belongs to the 3rd row of consonants, while the latter belongs to the 4th row of consonants. But in SBC, owing to want of choice, no distinction will be made between the two; and 'Da' (serial no. 38) will be chosen for both. For the same reason, in case of names like Chinmoy (Ch = first letter of the 2nd row) and Chhatrapati (Chh = second letter of the 2nd row), the corresponding consonant will be 'Cha' (serial no. 55) due to want of choice.

The Main 'Body' region of SBC:

A big square is to be drawn first – having sides of 9 units (say, 9 cms) length. Then a set of 8 equidistant parallel straight lines are drawn vertically (i.e., 1 unit apart from the left side towards inside of the big square); thereafter a similar set of 8 equidistant parallel straight lines are drawn horizontally (i.e., 1 unit apart from the top side towards inside of the big square). Thus, a mesh will be obtained; the big square will now consist of 81 small squares.


These 81 small squares will initially be numbered according to a sequential pattern for the purpose of the identification of the location of every specific small square. … Later, these numbers will be removed when the required Astrological particulars will be filled in the individual squares; this is since once the Astrological particulars are filled in their proper places, the serial numbers will lose their significance.

Beginning from the top left hand corner, the Serial Numbers of the small squares (from left to right) will be as under:

Top or 1st Row: 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09

2nd Row: 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 10

3rd Row: 31 56 57 58 59 60 61 40 11

4th Row: 30 55 72 73 74 75 62 41 12

5th Row: 29 54 71 80 81 76 63 42 13

6th Row: 28 53 70 79 78 77 64 43 14

7th Row: 27 52 69 68 67 66 65 44 15

8th Row: 26 51 50 49 48 47 46 45 16

Bottom Row: 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17
