Bhadra Yoga along with Hamsa, Ruchaka, Malviya and Sasa yoga goes under the special distinction of Panchamahapurusha Yoga. It is a special Rajyoga and is unique due to the fact that Bhadra Yoga is formed by a single planet and doesn’t require the involvement of any other planet in its formation.
Definition: Bhadra Yoga is formed when planet Mercury is in one of the Kendra houses (1st, 4th, 7th & 10th) in either Gemini or Virgo sign.
