This is a long shot, but I wonder if anyone recognizes this half-stanza:

यो भावः स्वामिसौम्याभ्यां दृष्टो युक्तो ऽयमेधते
yo bhāvaḥ svāmisaumyābhyāṃ dṛṣṭo yukto ’yam edhate
'The house that is aspected [or] joined by its ruler and a benefic prospers.'

-- from any source except the Bṛhatpārāśarahorā (where, in some editions, it is found at 74.10). It is cited without any source by Balabhadra in the mid-17th century, and I wonder if he may have got it from somewhere else, as he doesn't typically quote the BPH.

Are you looking for the exact phrase in an old style copy paste or a similar meaning phrase ?

Saravali chapter 3 verse 25 has :

आत्मीयनाथदृष्ट: सहितस्तेनैव तत्प्रियैर्वापि ।

Thanks, Pankaj, but I'm looking for the exact phrase. The principle is widely recognized, of course.

I never chanced to read it in BPHS but my first intro to the yo yo was from Shatpanchasika written by Prithuyasas , Son of Varahamihira - the commentary is by Bhattotpala.
Adhyaya 1 shloka 3 - it has an additional
यो

Indeed, I know the Ṣaṭpañcāśikā verse, but it is a different one (the metre is शालिनी śālinī, not श्लोक śloka). The one I quoted is in the versions of the BPH published by Ranjan and by Sagar, but I suspect it may be found in some other text as well.

Are you looking for an interpolation - not very cleverly done.

Not entirely sure what you mean, Pankaj, but as I'm sure you know, Sanskrit authors often borrow from each other, with or without attribution. The verse is there in some editions of the BPH, but it might have been somewhere else first (or later, for that matter).

I meant, if you were trying to unravel a not very clever attempt at interpolation.
The lineage is of Guru shishya and like a lecture note , the attribution is to the lecturer or the Guru.
‘My Guru ji used to say’ is sufficient authority Very Happy

Indeed! No, I am just trying to figure out what sources Balabhadra was using. It could be the BPH, but if so, it would seem to be a one-off. When quoting non-Tājika works, he typically goes for Varāhamihira and Śrīpati.
