Sanyasyoga – Combinations for an ascetic

By Kshitij Sharma, December 2, 2012

To be effectively able to judge if a person can take sanyas and become an ascetic, lets try to define the traits that we associate with a sanyasi. Before we begin, I would like to encourage everyone to watch a movie called OMG: Oh My God! It is a great movie.

Traits of a sanyasi that gives a pravrajya-yoga:

  • A sanyasi ought to be learned and someone with a sound logic, deeply philosophical and someone with clear and uncluttered thinking.
  • Not necessarily deeply religious, but someone seeking truth
  • Detached from family, society and worldly pleasures
  • Ability to work hard and have immense discipline.

The combinations that cause these traits to appear in a person are:

  • Negative Traits to cause detachment
    • Detachment is caused by malefic influence of Sun, Rahu, Saturn and 12th house lord in a kundali.
    • In a kundali, such an influence is required on 2nd (family) and 7th house (spouse). Influence on 2nd is much more important as an influence on 7th alone will cause separation from spouse, thus resulting in a divorce.
    • Separating influence is required on 4th house (society) and 12th house (worldly pleasures) and on Venus.
    • These influence are a must from the Moon as well – especially the influence of Saturn on the Moon is required should be analyzed very carefully.
  • Positive Influence in the horoscope to create higher intellect and provide wisdom
    • Pravrajya yoga is defined by 4 or more strong planets in one house in a kundali, without being combust or debilitated. The nature of the sanyas is governed by the strongest of these set of planets. Such a combination should ideally occur in a kendra to affect the Lagna, otherwise it will not be effective.
    • Jupiter will need to be involved to bring in the philosophical influence on the mind. Jupiter should by itself be a benefic planet in the kundali otherwise instead of a sanyasi, we will see a salesman or marketer, likes of who we see in the OMG movie.
    • Saturn indicates discipline and ability to work hard.
    • Venus is a planet that indicates luxuries in the horoscope. This has to be controlled and channelized in the kundali. One does not become a sanyasi by curbing ones desire. Happiness is obtained in the process and hence has a lasting influence.
    • Ketu is moksha karaka in a horoscope and especially acts that way if the location is in 12th house. Its combination with Venus, especially in 12th house is important. It could also be in 8th house as it is a house of hidden studies, occult and deep meaning of life. Essentially we should look at Saturn and Ketu affecting Venus in one of these two houses.

Both influences are required in a horoscope. If there is just the positive influence, then we see a family man, a grihastha who is a wise learned man. If there are just negative influences in the kundali, then it would be an unfortunate situation for the person and would not guide him/her to higher learning.

If any of the planets are combust, then the person has an inkling and tendency to take sanyasa, but does not really walk on the path. Even if sanyasa is attained, the person is likely come out of it.

According to Brihat-jatakam, if there is a rajayoga also existing in the chart, along with Jupiter in trines, then the chart is of a maharshi and rajarshi. Such a person, who, while have taken a sanyasa, will have a lot of followers and he will be considered a great sage. If this combination of raja-yoga does not exist, then the person will be a simple ascetic.

  • Comment by akash on March 8, 2015 at 3:33 am

    Dear balakrishnan,

    5th and 9th houses are houses of creativity, education, father and higher education but the hidden things are to be seen from 8th house.

  • Comment by akash on March 8, 2015 at 3:39 am

    Dear Kshitij sharma,

    Shukra represents all kind of luxzeries and material pleasures in life, therefor it has to be controlled as stronge shukra blesses or pulls a person towards all kind of materializm.

  • Comment by akash on March 8, 2015 at 3:43 am

    Sweety ji,

    Your son is a religious person but will not end up becoming a sanyasi.

  • Comment by akash on March 8, 2015 at 3:56 am

    Dear atul ,

    According to me strong 9th house jupitar is influencing you for your interest in vedas and hindu philosophy and your debiliated venus conj. sun is keeping you away from any relationships, your 7th house stronge saturn may delay your marriage but there are chaces of marriage.

  • Comment by harihara on September 1, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    Congratulations Shukla kar

    Yes, There are sannyas yogas in this horoscope.
    The yogas are
    1. parivraja
    2. Sadhu
    3. Vimala

    Ketu in third is a sure sign of giving a spiritual bent of mind. The yogas above have the potential to give a sannyas life sooner or later. Also there are other factors to stop it. 5th lord in 7th will bring you closer to marriage. but 8th lord will try to destroy it. if married spouse will die soon giving children. if children are born they will delay your renunciation for a long time.

    All the best.

    Dear Harish (born 8 may 1984)

    marriage is destroyed.Even if married spouse will make life hell. There are tendencies for renunciation.but there are number of adhikara yogas also lakshmi yoga . power and money will follow you and make it difficult to renounce. aspect of moon only by saturn in rasi is giving you thoughts of sannayasa but will it fructify it is difficult to tell. however destiny is in your hands. voluntary constant strong mental thought of living like a unknown Wandering begger monk may in this life or next may confer on you sannyasa.

  • Comment by bharath on October 3, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    Sudha ji. Sannyas yog hai, also there are afflictions to house of marriage jupiter the 7th lord afflicted by rahu and 7 house aspected by malefic kuja will cause more problems in marriage life. sani will make you bold, brave, philosophical, spiritual and akaila rehaneka man deta hai.but he will take your father soon.

  • Comment by shekhar verma on October 3, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    Dear Mayank
    If the timing is right ,you must have brothers. if you have brother then in this kundali there is no sannyasa yog. Marriage will take place. sani will delay but will perform marriage. If you marriage does not take place. then there will be unhealthy affairs with other women. In case birth timings is wrong by 10 minutes then the above indications will be wrong.

    Hare Krishna,

    Prabhuji, I am Sharanbasu, basically I am from Karnataka, but I grown in Maharashtra hence i I am working in Pune, professionally I am an engineer. I am devotee of lord Krishna, under blessing of Krishna I am very happy.
    As per my family they asking me for marriage, but real fact is that. I am totally not interested in marriage. For family sake I tried to seek a lot of girl on matrimonial sites but every girl having a problem of Mars or Antardasha likewise. There I found only 2 girls but those needs a lot of assets, hence they rejected. My question is that is there marriage is in my fate or anything else like renunciation in my life. Please explain my horoscope.
    My birth details-

    24 August 1988
    Time- 1.00 am
    Place- Bijapur( Karnataka)

    I hope these details are sufficient for checking horoscope.

    I am waiting for your reply.

    Thank you very much.

  • Comment by kamalakant shetty on October 16, 2015 at 1:03 pm


    sani in house of marriage is not good. marriage owner situated in loss house is not good. but a moon in house of marriage is good. venus aspecting marriage house is good. there are 50 % of marriage also because moon is aspected by sani. there is tendency or inclination for renunciation. Seems that destiny has given you a choice . it is up to you to decide. brother or sister may keep obstacles in renunciation.

  • Comment by veerandra verma on October 16, 2015 at 1:06 pm

    hi shenoy

    there is no pravrajya but vairagya is being caused by dristhi of sani on moon. what degree it is strong only you can know. pessimistic and negative tendency is being caused. rahu in house marriage has spoiled the chance of spouse happiness. marriage will be very difficult on the contrary it is a good sign for spirituality. you may have fame, good at arts and kala, and brothers will be supportive. jupiter dristi on bhagyastana will make you religious and spiritual.

    Dear Rathore born 1988

    The horoscope seems to show sister, vegetarian , weak interest to money and richness. recurring health problems. do not like heated discussions.
    and ……………..

    if these are qualities are present. then yes the traits which you are looking are there. otherwise the time given is incorrect. for if the past was wrong then the future will be wrong.

  • Comment by Vishwa Raj Singh Rathore on October 24, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Kamalakant Sir,

    Thank you for replying…..yeah, i had sister (she died), i am vegetarian, rare interest in wealth and i like discussions, where some decency is maintained, not heated discussions (in these situation i generally like to remain silent)….. so according to u i have traits suitable for sanyaas….. 🙂

    Sir, presently i’m social worker….. can you see any strong possibilities for renunciation in coming 5 years??

  • Comment by Savvy on March 15, 2016 at 2:17 am

    Would you clarify the maharishi-rajarishi yoga from Brihat Jatakam?
    Based on the wording, I’m confused about, whether or not Jupiter is to be in the trines, while a raja yoga is present -elsewhere in the chart, or if there must be a raj yoga, formed with Jupiter+other planets, together being placed in a trine sign.
    For example; 1st, 4th, 5th, and 9th lord in the 9th, with Jupiter in the 5th….
    Would you be able to source this yoga?

    Also, a very popular yoga for this, the Lord of the Moon Rashi, aspecting Saturn without being aspected by any other planet: [here is it referencing saturn as not receiving any other aspect, or the moon lord as not receiving any aspect at all?] thanks so much!

    For the last 10 years I am deeply inclined towards spirituality and Sanyaas. Though I was doing good professionally but left it midway because I was not getting satisfaction from it. I am unmarried and want to undertake path of Sanyaasin. Kindly, see if I have Sanyaas yoga in my kundali. Date of birth: 31 October 1987, time of birth: 12:40p.m. place of birth: Delhi.
    Thanks and regards.. kindly, do reply.

    My date of birth is 13 Feb 1975
    Place of birth is Bangalore
    Time if birth is 2355

    Family has been trying to get me married and unfortunately always has been with a zillion obstructions. None of the spiritual gurus have blessed me for the wedding but they smile

    very recently when my horoscope reached an astrologer he cited Parivraja Yoga in the horoscope.

    Question- do I really have such an yoga in the charts?
    If so when is the time for the yoga to kick in?
    Strange if it was so mathematical how come none of the astrologers so far have been able to tell me or my family about this

    Seeking your opinion
