DASA or ZA-GU:  The Life Periods.

The Kar Tsee dasa is the calculation system that determines the planetary periods of ones life during which particular chart features will manifest.  It is based upon a calculation of the Life Span for the person concerned and the proportional and sequential divisions of the 9 planetary cycles throughout this period.  In tibetan astrology it is called Za-gu [gza' dgu] and each Za-gu can be subdivided into sub periods called .  This method is not be confused with the Vedic Kalacakra Dasa and other Vedic Dasa systems since it has more variables and is based upon the Life Span calculation, and another calculation called the Chi-lu, as well as secret methods developed by individual astrologers, rather than just the moons gyu-kar or nakshatra as in the Vedic systems.

The following is a translation from our textual research on the effects to be observed.  These also suggest remedies to apply if you are experiencing the difficulties mentioned.  Of course these interpretations are only starting points for the practical astrologer and need to be examined in reference to a person's Kar Tsee chart when many more actual details can be observed.  Our expereince in using these periods has demonstrated that they are most useful in that one can immediately locate areas of present concern that are not discovered by other systems.
