A colleague has requested my help with a manuscript of an Indian horoscope (exact provenance currently unknown) cast for a native born in the mid-19th century. It's a longish thing, a scroll measuring seven metres, and contains a number of calculations, including daśā periods. The latter are not Viṃśottarī but are said to be based on a text called Gaurījātaka, in the form of a dialogue between Śiva and Pārvatī, and somehow related to svarodaya-śāstra (divination based on breath). The periods are assigned to the seven planets plus Rāhu (no Ketu). At present I haven't looked deeper than that. Has anyone heard of this text? I confess it's new to me.

I had heard of Swara in horary astrology but this was new.The book does indeed exist:

http://dla.library.upenn.edu/dla/medren/pageturn.html?id=MEDREN_6972533&doubleside=0&rotation=0&currentpage=2

Monier-Williams p370 lists this as a -Noun for a work
गौरीजातक

A book of same name was published by Khemraj:

Thanks very much, Pankaj! I didn't doubt the existence of the text, but couldn't find much information about it. Some googling of my own also revealed a few published editions and translations, as well as a reference to gaurījātaka-nakṣatrāyurdāya or 'longevity calculation based on asterisms according to Gaurījātaka'. But the manuscript link you provided (apparently to one chapter of the text, on ariṣṭa or misfortune/fatality) may be the most useful finding so far. Thanks again!

Got the Gauri jataka from Venkateshwar pres ( Rs 10) but it only deals with effect of planets in various houses from moon.Seems to be accurate enough but does not contain effects of Ketu( only Rahu is listed that too not for 2nd and 8th).
No Dasa effects or longevity.

dharmakarmasute dharme candrācca patitastamḥ ।
janmakāle nṛpaścaiva vṛddhakāle mahādhanī ॥

ṣaṣṭhe ca dvādaśe rāhuścandrācca patito yadi ।
rājarājasya mantrī syāddhandhānyasamākulaḥ ॥


धर्मकर्मसुते धर्मे चन्द्राच्च पतितस्तम्ः ।
जन्मकाले नृपश्चैव वृद्धकाले महाधनी ॥

षष्ठे च द्वादशे राहुश्चन्द्राच्च पतितो यदि ।
राजराजस्य मन्त्री स्याद्धन्धान्यसमाकुलः ॥

Thanks for sharing this information, Pankaj. I suppose there must be another work with the same title, or else a section of the same work not included in the Venkateshwar Press edition.
