SUPPOSE THE SUM OF THE LONGITUDE OF THE SUN AND THE MOON IS 281 deg REFERENCE TO THE ABOVE TABLE REVEALS THAT SIDDHA YOGA LASTING FROM 280 deg TO 293 deg 20'. THEREFORE ONE DEGREE HAS ELAPSED IN THIS YOGA.
REDUCE THE LONGITUDE OF THE MOON TO MINUTES AND DIVIDE THE SAME BY 800.
THE QUOTENT NUMBER OF CONSELLATIONS ALREADY PASSED, AND REMEMBER, THE PART COVERED IN THE CURRENT NAKSHATRA THE MOON IS IN CORRESPNDENING TO THE DATA GIVEN FOR THE TITHI.
THE MOON IS IN AQUARIUS 25 deg 59' 46"
=10 SIGNS 25deg 59' 46"
=325 deg 59' 46"
800 QUOTENT 24 REMAINDER 359' 46"
THE RULING STAR IS THE 25th PURVABHADRAPAD 359' 46" HAVE BEEN COVERED IN THIS STAR AND THE BALANCE TO BE TRAVERSED IS ( 800' -- 359' 46" ).
YOGA. IT IS THE PERIOD DURING WHICH THE
JOINT MOTION IN LONGITUDE OF THE SUN AND MOON AMOUNTS TO 13* 20'. EVERY
HINDU ALMANAC CONTAINS A COLUMN SPECIFYING THE YOGA FOR EACH DAY AND WHEN
IT WOULD END. THERE ARE TWENTY SEVEN YOGAS AS MENTIONED ABOVE.
YOGA REPRESENTS A CONJUNCTION OF SUBTLE INFLUENCES WHICH STRENGTHEN OUR BODIES, REMOVE THE GERMS OF DISEASE, AND HELP US TO MAINTAIN OUR HEALTH AND LIFE IN ITS VARIOUS PHASES.
THE FOLLOWING IS A YOGA EXAMPLE, ACCORDING TO THE SURYA SIDDHANTA OF SRILA BHAKTISIDDHANTA SARASWATI THAKURA PRABHUPADA.
SUN'S LONGITUDE + MOON'S LONGITUDE
13* 20' ( 800')
TAKING THE EXAMPLE DATE GIVEN UNDER TITHI:
SUN'S LONGITUDE 114* 40'
MOON'S LONGITUDE 326* 0'
TOTAL 440* 40'
= 80* 40'
DIVIDING 4840' BY 800 WE GET QUOTIENT 6 AND REMAINDER 40. 6 YOGAS HAVE TRANSPIRED AND THE 7th, vis, SUKARMAN IS RULING.
40' IS THE PART OF THE CURRENT (SUKARMAN) THAT HAS ELAPSED. YET TO BE
COVERED IN THIS YOGA IS 760'. TO ASCERTAIN THE TIME AT WHICH THE CURRENT
YOGA ENDS, DIVIDE 760' BY THE SUM OF THE DAILY MOTIONS OF THE SUN AND THE
(0* 57' + 11* 47' = 12* 44' OR 764') AND MULTIPLY BY 24 TO REDUCE THE RESULT TO HOURS.
760 times 24
764 =23hours 50mins.
THE SUKARMAN YOGA ENDS AT 23 hrs 50mins. FROM THE TIME OF BIRTH OR ANY GIVEN TIME.
THE TABLE OF YOGAS ABOVE ENABLES ONE TO ASCERTAIN THE YOGA ON THE BASIS OF THE JOINT MOTION OF THE SUN AND THE MOON.
THUS IN THE EXAMPLE THE SUM OF THE SUN'S AND THE MOON'S LONGITUDE IS
80* 40' SUKARMAN COMMENCES AT 80* AND EXTENDS TILL 93* 20'.
