All about Panch Mahapurusha Yoga – A Vedic Astrological Analysis (Predictions By Astrology)

Today I will discuss on the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga. This is not just a Raj Yoga but a special Yoga. Since this type of Raj Yogas are formed due to placements of planets in their signs or exaltation of the planets, so this yoga becomes very strong. It is said that the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is formed, when any of the non-luminary planets except Sun or Moon is placed in their own sign or exaltation sign in a Kendra from the Ascendant. Such conditions give rise to the great Panch Mahapurusha Yoga. Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is also formed from the Rasi Chart (Moon Ascendant). This is not a specific yoga but a group of different yogas, one each for Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. This is a very powerful yoga and is a special Raj Yoga.

We do not consider the planets Sun, Moon and shadow planets Rahu and Ketu. So, only the planets Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn form the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga. Since single planets form different forms of yoga, so Ruchika yoga is formed by the planet Mars, Bhadra Yoga by Mercury, Hamsa yoga by Jupiter, Malavya yoga by Venus, and Sasa yoga by Saturn.

It is often found that Panch Mahapurusha yoga is formed in horoscopes and many a times, it do not provide the required results. So, though the individual has the combination in one’s vedic chart, but somehow the person remains as a common people or become renowned person locally. This happens when the planet forming the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is afflicted or combust. Also, there may be one or more Panch Mahapurusha Yogas formed in a chart, for example if someone’s Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th) house falls in libra and both Saturn and Venus are placed there for Capricorn ascendant, then Malavya Yoga and SASA yoga are formed in the chart. This is a good yoga but if Venus is in Virgo in D9 and Saturn is in Aries in D9, then both these yogas will fail to provide the given results. Also, if astrological planet Rahu and Ketu are having an aspect in the planets forming the Panch mahapurusha Yoga planets, then also the activity of the yoga reduces drastically. However, there are certain more rules that governs the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga.

Let’s now discuss about Ruchika Yoga:

Ruchika Yoga is formed when the planet Mars is sitting in Capricorn, Aries or Scorpio in a Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th from Ascendant) house. Mars is a warrior planet and will provide immense motivation, courage, valour, vigor, youthful energy and victory over foes. Though these people may be aggressive or may be prone to injuries or may be prone to getting scars in the body. Details about this yoga will be analysed in detail in another article.

Bhadra Yoga is formed when planet Mercury sits in his own sign or in its exaltation sign in Virgo in a kendra (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th from Ascendant) house. Mercury is the planet for intelligence, speech, communication of any forms and this combination tends to make the native intelligent and a knowledge seeker. These combinations fall in signs of Earth Tatwa and the person with this yoga makes the person clever and has extraordinary power in negotiations and discussions. Mercury makes one live long and hence these natives have long life. The native acquires wealth through one’s own efforts.

Hamsa Yoga is formed when the blissful planet Jupiter is in his own sign or in exaltation sign in Cancer and is located in any Kendra House. Planet Jupiter provides one with great knowledge and hence this combination provides one with knowledge, virtues, patience, good and well cultured family. These natives looks deeper for ancient knowledge. These natives are also blessed with long life, wealth, comfort and a great family.

Malavya Yoga is formed when the beautiful elegant astrological planet Venus is in his own sign or in Taurus located in any Kendra House. However, some times Venus has a kendradhipathi dosh, but keeping aside the same, this yoga provides the native with a great wife, all forms of pleasures, luxuries and comfort in life. The native is easy going with females and have a wonderful voice.

Sasa Yoga is formed when the astrological planet Saturn is placed in own sign or in his exaltation sign Libra located in any kendra house. As per astrology, the planet Saturn bestows one with results based on one’s past deeds. Also, Saturn creates hurdles, obstacles and throws many a challenge. The native born in this yoga has medium height and may be dark complexioned or medium dark complexion. This natives will be keen to find fault with others but is devoted to one’s mother. If Saturn is exalted the native may be provided with many servants and high position in the society.

Details of Mahapurusha Yoga will be described later in my subsequent articles. The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
