Abstract

The product of 200 (jñānīndra) and the [śakābda]-guṇakāras, beginning with dhana (9), has to be added to or subtracted from the product of the [śakābda]-hāras [of the planets], beginning with manda (85), and their respective revolution numbers. These are guṇas [of the planets]. The [śakābda]-hāras, beginning with manda, multiplied by the the number of civil days (bhūdina) in a mahāyuga are the hāras. These are the mahāguṇas and mahāhāras, whose apavartana is to be done (they have to be factored by their GCD).
