Lagna represents the true self, Arudha lagna represents how the native is perceived by others in this material world. Since the previous answer has given a detailed explanation about arudha, am not going deep into it.
Suppose if the lagna is Aries , the lagna lord Mars is in the 3rd house Gemini, count three signs from Mars which arrives at the Leo. It becomes the ARUDHA PADA for the lagna. Likewise we can calculate the Arudha padas for all the bhavas, which is also called as BHAVA ARUDHAS.
Each Arudha pada has a specific names. Bhava Arudhas & their different names are as follows :
A1 ~ Arudha lagna, pada lagna
A2 ~ Dhan arudha, dhan pada, vitta arudha
A3 ~ Bhatra/ vikrama arudha or pada
A4 ~ Matri/sukha arudha or pada
A5 ~ Putra/Mantra Arudha or pada
A6 ~ Roga/Shatru Arudha
A7 ~ Dhara arudha
A8 ~ Mrityu / Kashta arudha
A9 ~ Bhagya/ pitris arudha
A10 ~ Karma/ Swarga arudha
A11 ~ Labha arudha
A12 ~ vyaya/ Moksha arudha or Upapada lagna.
GRAHA ARUDHA means the arudha lagna of the different houses in a natal chart.
We can make the graha arudha chart for all divisional horoscope also. Just as the arudha lagna shows the manifestation of the native in this world of illusion (maya), arudha padas of the houses show the maya associated with the matters signified by that house.

5. Here is One more rule, if (lagnesh) ascendent lord in ascendent or lagna in such case count 10th house from ascendent or first house, so 10 house will be the Arudha of ascendent lord sitting in ascendent.
6. Ascendent lord or Lagnesh in 10th house so 10th from 10th is 7th house so hence 10th house from 7th we falls at 4th house as Arudha lagna.
