### Calculation of Antardasha

• The Period of Antardasha will be as many months as are the years of the Mahadasha.
• This rule will apply to all the 12 Antardashas. Each Rashi's Antardasha calculation will not have to be done separately.

Example

 MD 12 Yrs Each AD 1 Year MD 11 Yrs Each AD 11 Month MD 10 Yrs Each AD 10 Month MD 9 Yrs Each AD 9 Month MD 8 Yrs Each AD 8 Month MD 7 Yrs Each AD 7 Month

### Calculation of Pratyantardasha

Char Dasha is a short dasha. For this reason calculation up to Antardasha is enough. If pratyantar dasha needs to be calculated. Then convert the Antardasha period into days and Divide by 12 Rashis. The Resultant will be days and Hours of the Pratyantar Dasha.

Example

• If Antar Dasha is of 12 months.
• 12 months converted into days = 360d.
• 360 days divided by 12 PD's = 30 days, 1 PD will be of 30 days.
• If Antar Dasha is of 11 months.
• 11 months converted into days = 330d.
• 330d Divided by 12 PD's = 27.5d=27d-12hr.
• 1PD will be of 27d 12 hrs.

Note :Normally 1 yr. is taken as 360 days for Dashas
