QUESTION: I consider myself a spiritual seeker. How is enlightenment
/ spiritual realization / liberation shown in a chart?
According to Dwait (dualistic) philosophy, Enlightenment,
or spiritual liberation, is the end result of a continuous process that
starts from the first incarnation of a Jeev (a spirit/soul). Everyone will
attain liberation and with the blessing of God, our right path will lead
us to Him. In the process all must go through repeated birth and rebirth.
What we know as life is named CHETNA, or senses, the ultimate use of which
is to progess toward Chaitenya, or liberation or mixing in God.
Advaita (non-dualistic) philosophy is contrary to this,
in that it denies all that we are seeing and feeling. The only truth is
God, who was never born and will never die. He gave birth to all of existence,
including ourselves. There is no reason to ask for liberation for being
part of of him we are already liberated. Thus, according to Advaita, liberation
or similar concepts have no meaning. (See also the Purpose
According to Vedic Astrology, there are certain Yogas which
indicate a person's knowledge, depth of understanding, and advancement.
The following yogas indicate that a person has a higher blessing of God
and either is enlightened or will become so.

be in the 4th house from Jupiter and the Moon in the 7th house from the
Sun. This yoga gives the person a very deep sense of philosophy and due
to previous births and holy deeds he has from birth much knowledge and
a sense of God.

is created when an exalted 7th house lord is placed in 10th House and the
10th house lord is in the Center with the lord of the 9th house. This yoga
makes a person very attached to religious philosophy and even while breathing
he remembers God. It is also rgarded as a Raj yoga and the person always
remain in peace.
- Parijaat Yoga: This yoga
results when the Lord of the Ascendant and the lord of Navansha are together
as well as exalted, while the lord of the placed house is in an exalted
state in the center from that house. The holder of this yoga becomes much
honored and enlightened during middle age and remains honored due to his
inner potential of soul. He follows traditions and owns a lot of wealth.

- Satya Katha Sharavan Yoga (1):
This yoga forms when Gemini is in the 3rd house, Mercury is in 2nd house
and Jupiter is in 11th house and lord of 3rd house is in good Navamsha.
Such persons are very good in speech and are known as the best and true

a moving sign and Saturn is exalted as well as in the Center. Anshavataar
means that the person has God's touch. Indeed, it is a very holy yoga.
No doubt it is a Raj yoga in itself and gives the person pure fame. The
person becomes a very deep philosopher and a lover of freedom. The only
problem in this yoga is that Venus should not have any relation with Mars
or its aspect, otherwise Mars changes this yoga into one in which the person
becomes attached to many members of the opposite sex.
- Hari-Har Bharma Yoga: This
yoga occurs when Holy planets are placed in the 8th or 12th house from
the lord of the 2nd house or from Jupiter, the the Moon and Mercury are

Gyan indicates a person who knows about the three times -- i.e., past,
present and future. This yoga is formed when Jupiter is in its own Navamsha
and 4 times in its own house in other charts (Dashmansa, Ekadashmansha,
Dwadashmansah, etc.). In the Horoscope it is in either the 5th or 11th
house. Such persons have the blessing of God and have the ability to see
the past, present and future. This ability always comes with enlightenment,
hence this yoga indicates that the person will have activated Kundilini.
