Why there was no Mercury (Budha) Mahadasha in Lord Sri Rama’s life?
Author(s): Raghavendra Sai Akkinapragada and Dr. Venkata Chaganti
Our previous research work  confirmed that planet Mercury (Budha) was ‘not in existence’ during Lord Rama’s time period. In this analysis, we have made an assumption that if planet Mercury were to exist during Ramayana’s time period, then in which signs it could have existed in Lord Sri Rama’s birth chart and what Mercury mahadasha could have bestowed upon him? Our extensive research on mahadasha’s of Lord Sri Rama ascertained that Mercury (Budha) was ‘not in existence’ during Lord Rama’s time period.
