Transits are supported in a rich, interactive and ultra versatile way. Show Transits animated around the birth chart, in timelines, or in a graphical ephemeris. Do a Transit Search to find out when natal points are crossed.
[http://www.parashara.com/cont5.html] “Parashara’s Light” supports transits in numerous ways. It offers several ways of looking at transits, each having its own purpose or advantage:
To look at the transits for a very specific date or event with emphasis on detailed information and comparison with the birth chart, use the Worksheet.
To look at the transits for a long period of time without great detail but along with the birth chart, use the Animated Transits.
To look at the transits for a month at a time along with the dashas, use the Graphical Ephemeris.
To find out when a particular transit will take place, use the Time of Transits screen (next page).
To generate a list of the dates and times transits take place, use the Transit Report feature (next page).
The Calendar Screen shows and prints a month of dasha changes in calendar format.
Transit Search[http://www.parashara.com/cont6.html] Often, while looking at a chart, you will wonder when a particular transit will take place. Now you can very easily and quickly answer questions like “When will Saturn transit the natal Moon?” or “When will Mars enter the Ascendant? ” In seconds, the date and time of the transit will be given. By clicking on the date, the chart for the moment of the transit will be shown. Then, you can calculate the other transits as well. Not only exact transits, but also transits into the same degree, sign, etc.
Another sophisticated addition is the transit/Dasha Report. This feature allows you to define a report containing the date and time that transits and dasha changes occur. You choose which transits you want to be included, which planets in transit to use, the kind of transit, and the points in the chart that are being transitted (such as the natal planets, house cusps, yogi point, etc.) Kinds of transits that can be selected include exact degree transit, transit into signs, nakshatras, navamshas. Exact vedic aspect onto the natal point, trines, squares, and more.
In the same report ,you can merge dasha changes from any of the dasha systems up to any level you specify. This allows you to make a highly useful report which includes all the important events used inVedic Astrology .
Each report you create can be named and saved for later use. Reports can be made for any period of time.

The Ashtakavarga Screen is dedicated to Ashtakavarga calculations only. This screen shows three tables. The table on the left shows the Binnashtakavarga for the Sun by default, and can be changed to show the scores for any of the planets.
The table on the right shows the Sarvashtakavarga for each planets and the totals per house, Samudaya Ashtakavarga. The scores for the ascendant is not included in the totals.
The graph at the bottom shows the Samudaya Ashtakavarga in a graph that reveals immediately which signs give auspicious results and which become inauspicious by the Ashtakavarga (according to Parashara).
Ashtakavarga scores are also shown in the Muhurta screen and in the transits printouts.
