Can you please advise that to determine the quality/strenghth of the Mahadasha of a planet , what should be considered — BAV(Bhinaa Ashtak varga) points of that planet or Shadbala of that Planet for which Mahadasha/Antardasha is running ?
There are two different tools to know the strength of the planet and to make predictions.
In Shadbala you have 6 different bala consolidated into one like Sthana bala, Dig bala, Chesta bala etc. strength due to placement, direction etc of planets. While in Ashkatvarga is how other planets support and oppose a planet. If a planet is strong in both Shadbala and Ashtakvarga it will surely give good results in its Mahadasha and antardasha.
But if a planet has strong shadbala for example exalted Saturn but it has only 1 ashtakvarga point in D1 Chart then how should be the quality of Saturn Mahadasha — i mean which tool will prevail — Ashtakvarga or Shadbala?
Can you please share your view on whether Ashtakvarga points of other charts like D9 and D-10 are also important to look upon for considering the quality of Mahadasha or only D1 (Rasi Chart) is relevant ?
