आच्छादन - ācchādana/Acchadana Drishti


|| Om gurave Namah ||
Dear Jyotishas,

Just wanted to make note and emphasis the ācchādana drishti of grahas as used by Pt. Sanjay Rath.

I will just makes notes now, and will later try to add charts after analysis,

Meaning from MW Dictionary,
"आच्छादन-ācchādana

(H2) आ-च्छादन n. covering, concealing, hiding KātyṠr. 
cloth, clothes, mantle, cloak Pāṇ.  Āp.  Mn.  MBh.  &c
a cover for a bed R.  vii, 37, 11
the wooden frame of a roof L. 
"



The Acchadana Drsti of the planets are seen from the various houses as follows:
  1. Seventh from Sun,
  2. Ninth from Moon,
  3. Eleventh from Mars
  4. First from Mercury
  5. Third from Jupiter and
  6. Fifth from Venus

Example : "The dictum that affliction to the fifth house from Venus leads to Netra Roga from BPHS is based on a ... yoga called Acchadana Drsti of Graha."
