friendly houses and are also possessed of strengthby occupa-
tionof a Kendra, Trikona, etc., invariablyproduce evil results
if they are associated with very few bindus (less than 4).

Navamsa, invariably produce good results if they are associ-
ated withmore bindus (5 or more).

powerful, produce malefic results if they are associated with
3 or less bindus intheir Bhinnashtakavargas. Conversely, all
of them, howsoever adversely placed or otherwise weak,
always produce benefic results if they are associated with5 or
