Vinshottari Mahadasha Antardasha of Planets in Vedic Astrology or Jyotish: -
To estimate/ascertain timing of various events in our lives or to find out the auspicious time phases and bad time phases regarding various issues in our lives, Maharishi Parashara has given calculations to divide the time of our lives broadly in the intervals of mahadashas & each mahadasha is further divided into sub-intervals of antardasas. In this system of Vinshottari Mahadasha-Antardasha of Planets in Vedic Astrology or Jyotish it is assumed that different planets influence our lives in different time intervals. Each dasha (be it mahadasha or antardasha) has a ruling planet on the name of which nomenclature of that dasha is done. Good or bad result of any dasha would depend upon the placement and strength of that planet in the birth chart of the person concerned. Result of antardasha of some planet will also depend upon relationship of the antardasha planet with the mahadasha planet.
Mahadasha of which planet would come first in life?
Mahadasha of the lord planet of nakshatra (nakshatra through which Moon was transitting at the time of birth of the person) of the person will come first in life.
