Analysis of past events

He established Isha Foundation in 1993. During this period its was the dasa of Mars/Sun. Both Mars and Sun are in the 4th house signifying house, ashrams, etc. The planets Mars and Sun are not properly placed. I am sure he would have gone through several criticism when the foundation was launched. The Foundation has allegedly violated rules and regulations on several occasions.

Jaggi Vasudev was married to Vijayakumari (also called Vijji). This was Vijayakumari’s second marriage. Prior to marrying Vasudev she worked in a bank.The couple had a daughter called Radhe. Vijaya Kumari died in 1997. At that time her father alleged that Vasudev had murdered her. Vasudev called the incident as ‘Mahasamadhi’ and claimed he had told her about it nine months before her death. Although he claimed she had attained mahasamadhi and, according to Hindu beliefs, should have been buried, Vasudev had her body cremated. Police could not gather enough evidence, and the case against him was closed. Vasudev’s daughter Radhi is a trained dancer. She married Chennai-based classical vocalist Sandeep Narayan in 2014 at Vasudev’s Coimbatore ashram in a lavish ceremony attended by many Indian celebrities. (Source:

During the period 1997, the dasa in operation was Rahu/Jupiter. Rahu is in the 6th house and Jupiter is in the 5th house. From the 7th house of wife, Rahu is in 12th house of death and Jupiter is in the 11th house along with Venus a double maraka and debilitated. Jupiter is the 2nd lord a maraka and Gulikadipati of D1. So, a 2nd maraka in conjunction with 2 and 7 lord maraka is bound to give death of the partner. Moreover, the 7th house of spouse and marriage has Saturn which is in MB and its lord Mars is also in MB. Both being in mutual aspect. For these reasons, the death of his wife has remained a mystery. In D9, the sign rising is Aries and the 7th house has Ketu and the lord of 7th house is in the 5th house aspected by Rahu/Jupiter and Saturn.

The dasa currently going on is Jupiter/Venus from March 2020 to November 2022. The antara lord Venus is the lagna lord and it is debilitated. It is with Jupiter lord of 8 and 11, a highest malefic. During this period he will have health issues and get into controversies.
