Krishnamurti Paddhati (KP System)

This is an excellent system (Paddhati) of astrological predictions discovered by late Sothida Mannan, Jyotish Marthand Sri. K.S. Krishnamurti. KP system lays emphasis on Constellations (Nakshatras) and is very systematic and regarded as most accurate system of the present times. It is specifically used for getting minute predictions. For instance in the case of birth of twins, there is a difference of only few minutes in the birth times of both the children. The horoscopes of the twins appear to be similar but still the destiny of both the children are different? The answer to this can be given only by KP System.

Some key highlights of KP System are as follows:

  • KP system gives importance to the Constellations / Stars / Nakshatras divisions of the Zodiac which is obviously the most desired for precision.
  • Further it divides each Constellation / Star / Nakshatra division into further 9 subdivisions called 'SUBS'. These sub divisions are not equal divisions, but are as per the Vimshottari Dashas divisions system.
  • K.P. System uses K.P. Ayanamshas as opposed to Lahiri Ayanamshas mostly used in Vedic System. The difference between two is about 6 minutes (Kala).
  • This system uses Cusps that is house/ bhav beginnings like Western Systems, as opposed to Vedic System which uses House Centres i.e. Bhav Madhyas
  • This system uses Placidus House system.
  • The planet in its period (dasha) gives results as per its Nakshatra-Swami (Star-Lord) rather than the planet itself. Hence Planet is represents the SOURCE, the Planet's Star-Lord represents the RESULTS and that Planet's Sub gives the idea of the FINAL OUTCOME (POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE) of that result.
  • House significations are given more importance than planetary significations.
