by the lord of the Nakshatra or constellation.
Light and Nakshatra Lord
If a planet is compared to a torch light then the influence of the sign and the influence of the Zones of 13°20' called stars, change the colour of the light. Suppose a railway guard shows the light, It may be plain or green or red according to the background mirror.
Similarly, imagine that the mirror used behind the bulb is the lord of the sign. It may be clear and it may illuminate to a maximum or it may be dull rendering the light, weak. The strength and modification of the colour depends on the mirror behind the bulb (which is the reflector) which denotes whether a planet is exalted and strong or debilitated and weak.
Also suppose one coloured slide is inserted between the torch light and the observer, this colour mainly depends on the lord of the constellation.
Therefore, the results of a planet in different positions in the Zodiac, in different signs and different constellations, is similar to the light from the torch getting modified and the resultant becoming absolutely different from the original light unless all the colours are similar to that of the planet.
Prof.Krishnamurthy found out that a planet does not invariably give the matters of the houses it occupies or owns but offers to give matters of such planet in whose constellation it is deposited. He used the same 9 planets, the same 27 constellations, and the 12 Rashis together with the same old Vimshottari Dasha system, and said
that a house is occupied by the constellation lord and also the house is owned by that planet.
The occupant of the house will move the matters of the house it occupies, apart from the results it has to offer due to its constellational position if there is no planet in any of its constellations.
Whether or not, such results as are indicated by the tenant planet will come to pass depending upon the 'SUB' portion of the constellation occupied by the tenant planet.
And if the lord of the 'SUB' occupied by the tenant planet is favourably connected by occupation, lordship to the matters signified by the constellation lord of the tenant planet, the tenant planet fructifies the matters of which it is the significator due to its constellation position.
If the tenant planet is placed in the 'SUB' of a planet who occupies or owns houses detrimental to the affairs of the constellation lord, the matter is not fulfilled.
The 'SUB' lord should not be in unfavourable aspect to the CUSP of the house signified by the constellation lord. The Aspects are to be computed by reckoning the distance in terms of the longitude.
If the constellation is akin to Dasha, the Bhukti is akin to 'SUB', the Antara is akin to SUB-SUB, and so on.
A planet in KP terminology becomes a maletic or benefic, not in consideration of its nature in terms of the old traditional system, but by reason of its owning benefic or malefic houses or occupying such houses.
Prof. K.S.K. was emphatic in saying that no planet is wholly a benefic nor in full a malefic. Neither Jupiter is benefic nor Saturn is malefic.

Just as a planet is governed by the sub lord, so also the cusps of houses are governed by the sub lords in accordance with the degree rising on the cusp of the Houses.
