dear sunil gondhalekar, > 1.there is no fixed rule to select Sookshma in 4 step theory the chain is completed in DBA only but to find more closer period sokshma is considered. > 2.confirming of cuspal sublord by RP is as per guidelines > given by KSK in his 3rd reader. It may have been noticed , that ruling planets depend, on place, time, date of studying the chart. There is very possibilities that these will change , when same chart is studies by number of astrologers at different places and time. Then how are you going overcome this plausible error in using ruling planets? You will be taught how to fix the time of an event without using ruling planets. -English translated 4 step lecture nptes page 2 the main essence of this theory is to judge the events without help of RP. i have never denied the efficacy of RP ,but my experiece says that RP will not support to everybody at everytime. 1.i dont take RP for selecting sooksma dasa but i advise to take RP in case if it is needed.RP are to be treated as "in case of emengency"level. Q 1: could you kindly clarify how the above can be reconciled?

3.the method of confirming cuspal sublord for relevant house was used by late Hasbe guruji and it was his practice which i have seen many times.He also was not changing the birth time. i have seen him to confirm cuspal sublord first and then only he gives prediction,but he never recast the horoscope.when i queried him about this then he told me that it is not necessary to recast horoscope because when we judge

the other matter of the same native then again we will confirm the related cuspal sublord. thats why i also dont recast the horoscope again. Q.2: would it not mean using the different TOBs for different matters for the 'same natal' chart?

4.retro theory doesnt work in horary is experienced by many astrologers.there are many examples for this.anyone can refer the articles on this subject in my Diwali-2009 magazine on page no.46 and 69. whereas this fits in transit which is also experienced by 4 step followers..the success rate is again a debatable issue and i dont want to enter in it. more importance is given for retrograde planet in horary by our KSK but my eperience is that we are not getting results out of this theory regarding this retrograde planets,i used to discuss this matter with our guruji,late jyotindra hasbe.he told me the theory is under observation i dont use this theory in my 4 step but this is used only when we check transit of DBA swami. i dont consider it (retrograde planet) in natal as well as horary but i consider retrograde planets effects in considering transit of DBA swami. the retrogression results are to be seen in transit planets and not in natal planets.

Q.3: it is better view that retrogression in horary is not yet conclusie. it is still in the process of collecting horary cases including from the old A & As. What I'm really wondering is what would be the rationale to apply the retrogression in considering transit of DBA swami, if you are not getting results out of this theory?

5. about uranus,neptune,pluto..now they are counted in the study of 4 step theory.in my previous edition(1996)it was not included but in recent edition the study is added.the cases are already given in magazine also. Q.4: have you found any rule for Pluto to give any kind of positive result? because up to now what has been fond is only negative results.

6.only primary houses offers the result as per 4 step theory guidelines.sw designer kept both the options free for research purpose. ONLY THE STRONG (OR PRINCIPLE) SIGNIFIERS ARE CAPABLE OF GIVING THE RESULTS. THE SECONDARY SIGNIFICATOR ARE LIKE MIRAGE. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT RULE OF THE 4 STEP METHOd. -English translated 4 step lecture notes, page 5 Q.5: could you imagine how it would be complicated in some charts by including the 'unnecessary' secondary significators, as shown below?

I have no issues here. But if its a new theory then please be genuine in saying that its Original and that no rules have been picked from any other source. If it is not new then please mention the source and also acknowledgment of the source, with due respect given to the source before we address ourself as the originator. Another matter is that before a theory is propounded, then please make it undersrandable to at least 70% of the members.

Why must we point fingers at anyone ? And why were you silent at that mail ? At least for Rs. 300/- the students have got a millions Rupees worth of knowledge from his books containing hundreds of examples and simple style of explaining the rules. The photo of his Guruji has been put on his books, due respect has been given, his Gurujis reference is made in almost every second Chapter. Do You see this in Shri Suniljis book which I purchased from him for Rs.500- containg 40 pages of large Fonts (Xerox Pages) written in a hurried manner, and absolute confused depictions of the rules ?

See I am not concerend with all this, nor am interested in Politics, nor care for who acknolwedges whom, but mentioning this just because fingers were pointed at Shri Sahasne ji . If I am not mistaken Shri Sunilji and Shri Shasneji have learnt KP from the same Guru Hasbeji. pointing one finger at others means pointing 3 at ourselves, is what made me write above. >>> > > > // It is your decision not to comment on 4 step any more, however any

Removing something from KP, then adding another set of confusing rules to it and naming it "4 Step" is not what I

am comfortable with. Shri Sahasne has made improvisations to KP in his books, mentioned the areas where he feels further research must be done, accepted his dissatisfactions in certain areas, but never claimed to be originator of any new theories. > > > > If You have understood the 4 Step well, then you may be fortunate. Any improvisations if makes some sense and is not confusing to a student - Beginner or Advanced level student, is always welcome. I did not even understand properly your translation in the Files Section where a 58 KB File on Fout Step theory Rules are, put up. There are about 10 Ruless mentioned which themselves contain many others within them. Understanding the English in any article is another matter, understanding the rules is a seperate matter, and application of them is again another junction. When to apply which rules is again confusing. This is my personal opinion as I mentioned before. > > > > About 4 Step I will refrain from commenting further. > > > > kind regards, > > > > Bhaskar. >>>> >>>> >>>> >>>> > > > > --- In k_p_system@yahoogro ups.com, Subhash Ektare <subhash_ektare@ ...> wrote: >>>>> > > > > > Dear Members, >>>>> > > > > > As far as my knowledge goes, 4 step theory is based on KP principles only adding and /or improvising some rules. Further the method of working out signification of each planet is entirely different. To differentiate this aspect from KP (and not get confused as KP) it was suitably titled as "4 Step Theory".
