Step 3: Look for the placement of Atmakarka in the Navamsha chart.
Step 4: look for the 12th house from Atmakarka in Navamsha chart.
Step 5: If there is a planet in the 12th house from Atmakarka then the ruling god of that planet is your Isht Dev, if there are more than one planet in your 12th house then look for the strength of each planet and the planet with highest strength is your Isht Devta, If no planet occupies this house then look for the planet aspecting the house. If no planet aspects the house then lord of the house will be used for knowing Isht Devta.
