Panch Mahapurush Yoga
In Vedic Astrology, one of the Auspicious Yogas is known as Panch Mahapurush Yoga. It is formed with the help of five tara grahas which are namely, Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars and Venus. The Yog is formed due to any one of the planets being exalted or in it’s own sign in Kendra houses (1,4,7,10). It makes a person wealthy, famous, rich and it is a highly auspicious Yoga.
The Panch Mahapurush Yoga is divided into five sub yogas which are formed due to the Tara Grahas. Each yoga formed by a specific tara graha has its own name.

Cancellation of Panch Mahapurush Yoga
Although it is very auspicious and lucky to have any one of the Panch Mahapurush Yoga in the Birth Chart but we should be cautious that having certain malefic planets with the Tara Grahas can cancel the auspicious Panch Mahapurush Yoga.
The Panch Mahapurush Yoga can get cancelled if:
- If the lord of exalted sign of a yoga producing planet is conjoined or aspected by its debilitation lord, the effect of yoga producing planet stands nullified.
- If the yoga producing planet is conjoined by Ketu, its effects are nullified.
Ruchaka Yoga (Mars) : If Saturn conjoins with Mars or Mars aspects Saturn then the Ruchaka Yoga formed by Mars loses its strength.
Bhadra Yoga (Mercury): If Jupiter aspects Mercury or there is a conjunction between Jupiter and Mercury.
Hamsa Yoga (Jupiter): If there is a conjunction between Moon and Mars or Mars is aspecting Moon.
Malavya Yoga (Venus) : If there is a conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn or if Saturn aspects Jupiter.
Shasha Yoga (Saturn): If there is a conjunction between Venus and Mercury or if Mercury aspects Venus.
