Virodhin (विरोधिन्) refers to the twenty-third saṃvatsara (“jovian year)” in Vedic astrology.—One who is born in the ‘samvatsara’ of ‘virodhin’ is an eloquent speaker, wanders in foreign lands, does not give joy and happiness to his own people (people belonging to his family), is extremely deceitful or cunning and does not develop relationship or friendship with the people.

According with Jataka Parijata, the person born in the year virodhin (2009-2010 AD) will be afflicted, delighting in the company of the wicked and addicted to sinful deeds and cruel.
