The study of this classic text makes one grasp the fundamentals of astrology. Brihat Jataka is considered as the standard text-book on Vedic astrology, and sometimes described as "India's foremost astrological text". Daivajna Var? He is considered to be one of the nine jewels Navaratnas of the court of legendary king Vikramaditya thought to be the Gupta emperor Chandragupta II Vikramaditya. Though little is known about his life, he supposedly hailed from South Bengal, where in the ruins of Chandraketugarh there is a mound called the mound of Khana and Mihir.
Khana was the daughter-in-law of Varaha and a famous astrologer herself. Modern Shakadvipi brahmins, especially astrologers, regard Varah Mihir as their ancestor, although there is no ancient documentary proof in favour of this belief.
The Brihat Sa? The volume expounds on gemstone evaluation criterion found in the Garuda Purana, and elaborates on the sacred Nine Pearls from the same text. It contains chapters and is known as the "great compilation". Source: Cleveland Museum of Art. Panchasiddhantika Square the sine of latitude and deduct from the square of the radius. Its square root is the sine of the co-latitude its arc being the co-latitude. Square the sine of the declination deduct from the square of the radius and find its root.
Twice the result is the day diameter. Sanskrit Scholars in Oxford,Benares and everywhere have translated and have been published. So if you put that group into the discussion, sooner than later, you will see that that is one stream of thought and a possible direction that the discussion will go into. There is a second dimension, which I have seen That is another prominent argument that I have seen in recent times. What is interesting is that people who make such observations and hold on to these kinds of arguments, more often than not, do not even know what Sanskrit is about and what it contains and what it does not contain.
And as many of us do, they rely on secondary sources and so they even take decisions on the basis of secondary sources. That is the second perspective on what Sanskrit is all about. There is a third perspective, which is I put it as broadly in the domain of religion. You know, if you look at religion as business, used by the merchants of religion, for them obviously Sanskrit could be viewed as a means for propagating the religion. The question is can Sanskrit be a vehicle for propogating all religions?
Unfortunately, it does not appear to be so. Whether you like it or not, it appears that there is a great deal of Hindu colour to anything that has been done using Sanskrit as the vehicle So the merchants of religion look at Sanskrit as a major threat. So that is one perspective, which I have come across.

Brihat Jataka of Varahamihira By V Subrahmanya Sastri
The study of this classic text makes one grasp the fundamentals of astrology. Brihat Jataka is considered a standard textbook on Vedic astrology ,  and sometimes described as "India's foremost astrological text". The work covers the wide and complex range of predictive astrology. The brevity employed in its composition is noteworthy. Brihat Jataka was considered to be a jewel among astrological literature and indeed in my early days of study there were many translations and commentaries on Varahamihira's Brhat Jataka Because of its many ancient commentaries by Bhattotpala and others especially the Dasadhyayi of Talakkulathur Govindam Bhattathiri The original text, written in chaste Sanskrit , consists of more than Shlokas or verses that comprise 28 chapters.
