Calculations of Samvatsar - Jupiter year





Varah Mihira in his classical work has clearly mentioned that astrologer should be well versed in computation of the commencement and termination times of the 60 yuga year period, the Yuga (5 years Period), a year, a month, a day, Hora (an hour) and also of their respective lords.

षष्टयब्दयुगवर्षमासदिनहोराधिपतीनां प्रतिपत्तिच्छेदवित् 


When Jupiter enters the first quarter of Dhanishtha and at the same time rises after getting eclipsed by Sun, in the month of Magha, Prabhav the first year of his cycle of 60 years comes into being and it will be beneficial to all. 
Lunar month of Magha begins when Sun enters Aquarius (solar Falguna Month), above condition satisfied if Jupiter be in 9s-23°-21' and the Sun in 10s-06°-21'
as Jupiter rises at an interval of 13° between his longitude and Sun`s.

यत्रोत्तिष्ठति सहोदयमुपगच्छति येन देवपतिमंत्री
ततसंज्ञम वक्तव्यं वर्ष मासक्रमेणेव

Ascertain the star in which Jupiter rises after conjunction with Sun 
The star/ Nakshtra occupied by Jupiter when he comes out from conjunction with Sun.

The name of that star becomes the name of that Year and succeeding year bear the name of months in their respective regular order. For example if Jupiter re emerges in the star Krittika then that year would be called "Karttika", succeeding years would be Margashirhsa, Pausha etc.

Jupiter years commence from Kartikka and consists of two asterism each beginning with  Krittika and follows in regular manner. however 5, 10, 11 years comprise of 3 asterisms.


In the year 2017 Jupiter rises in the asterism of Swati, so the year will be called Chaitra (If Jupiter rises in Chitra or Swati year is named Chaitra)
