The research features allow you to examine commonalities between groups of charts, or find charts with a certain common factor. For example, you could pull up all people who have a certain wealth yoga. Or see how strong Venus is on average in the charts of singers. Since the software has so many advanced calculations, and is so flexible in applying these calculation in creative ways, the entire software is basically one giant research tool.
Chart database: The software includes a chart database of famous people of over 700 charts, organized by category.
Selecting Groups of Charts by User Defined Criteria: Parashara’s Light has a special search feature, which allows you to select a group of charts from your database, based on a condition in the birth chart. For example, you can select all charts that have the lord of the first house in the 4th. Or select all charts with Saturn exalted. The ability to isolate all the people who have that particular thing in common in their chart, can be a great help in studying the effects of certain principles in Jyotish.
