A special technique for finding mishaps in the lives of children and boys and girls up to the age of twenty-four. Pataki Rista Chakra (P.R.C.) is a traditional technique in eastern India, in Orissa, Bengal, Bihar (Darbhanga part).
Method of calculation starts like this:
P.R.C. as a chakra is made up of three vertical lines & three horizontal lines crossing each other as shown. [Think tic-tac-toe with extra lines] From the ends of these lines, transverse [e.g., diagonal] lines are drawn to make a chakra as shown in the figure. Mesha is written on the upper right end, Vrishabh to Meena rashis are placed as shown in an anti-clockwise direction. Three small flags (Pataki) are drawn on top of Mesha, Vrisha & Mithuna rashis. [e.g., atop the three vertical lines] Mesha to Meena rashis are alloted fixed numbers & fixed years. [Table follows] The horoscope under consideration is superimposed on the chakra & vedha is noticed.
