In order to gain the gift of Intuition, which is the Eye of Wisdom, the scholar prays to the Inner Sun !
Asthu Trailokya Deepaya Bhakthabhi Mathadayine   
Samastha Vidya Nirmana Kavaye Ravaye Namah 
I bow down to the inner Sun, the Absolute Self,
Who  shines in all three relative states of consciousness 
The bestower of Bhakthi, the Conferror of all knowledge
And  who is the real Trikala Jnani.
May He endow us with the Gift of the Intuitive Mind !

Gulika is a dangerous player here, as he vitiates the house he tenants as well as his dispositor. The planet tainted by Gulidkadhipatya Dosha is a Badha planet. Also the planets he associates with become Badha planets.

The Lord of the Badha Stana, the Badhakadhipa, is another dangerous planet.

First find out who tenants the Badha Stana and what are the indications.
If Jupiter and the Sun tenant Badhasthana- Enemy is rich and handsome
If Mars- is a hunchback
If Mercury- is of big build
If Saturn- is lame.
If Venus- is a woman

Is there Affliction ?

If the 6H lord is in Badhastana- Badha is obvious
If Badhakesh in the 6H- Badha is predicted
If Mandeesha is in 6H- Badha is obvious
If 6H lord is with Gulika- Badha is clear.
