        Birhat Jatak from time immemorial has been considered as the standard textbook on Astrology. The English translation of Varahamihira`s Brihat Jataka is a monumental work in completing which the difficulties in translating a beautiful, technical and suggestive work in sanskrit had to surmounted by hard labour, profound research and want of adequate s:   Amaraja, a commentator of Brahmagupta in his commentary on Brahmagupta’s “Khandakhadyaka,” quoted the following: “Varahamihira passed away in Saka (i.e., ad ). Varahamihira has taken the saka year (i.e., ad ) as the epoch for the computations of the planets in his famous astronomical treatise ‘Pañca Siddhāntikā.’”.

      Varahamihira, also called Varaha or Mihir, was an astronomer, mathematician and astrologer who lived in Ujjain during 5 th century. He is considered to be one of the nine jewels of the court of legendary ruler Vikramaditya. He was born in Avanti region, that’s presently known as Malwa.

      Parusa graha has been identified with Rahu by one translator (Ganguli , Book 6, p) and with Ketu by ANOTHER (Sathe et al. , p).. The arbitrariness is obvious. As we have argued it would be anachronistic to associate Rahu and Ketu with a planet in pre-Varahamihira times.   Till today, his technology of making material with gold like shine is used in making imitation jewelry. In his book, Rasaratnakara, he has also discussed methods for the extraction of metals like gold, silver, tin and copper.

CE, which gives us information about older Indian texts which are now : Gupta era. Introduction It is a well-known and widely accepted fact that the Vedas are the oldest treasures of knowledge in the whole world and that they incorporate, apart from other things, systematised scientific knowledge of Indians.

Jyotissastra is referred to as one of the six auxiliaries of the Veda, nay as the essential part of it, as the eye. Varahamihira’s knowledge of Western astronomy was thorough. In five sections, his monumental work progresses through native Indian astronomy and culminates in two treatises on Western astronomy, showing calculations based on Greek and Alexandrian reckoning and even giving complete Ptolemaic mathematical charts and tables.

Varahamihira was born in A.D. into a family of Brahmins settled at Kapittha, a village near Ujjain. His father, Adityadasa was a worshipper of the Sun god and it was he who taught Varahamihira. Varahamihira summarizes was the Romaka-Siddhanta which was based on the epicycle theory of the motions of the Sun and the Moon given by the Greeks in the 1st century AD.

The Romaka-Siddhanta was based on the tropical year of Hipparchus and on the Metonic cycle of 19 years. Varahamihira ( – CE) was a great astronomer, mathematician, scientist, poet, astrologer and a compiler.

Samhita means compilation. He rightly named his book Big Compilation or Great compilation. He wrote it in Sanskrit.

He deals with all the subjects under the sun in chapters. Varahamihira’s main work is the book Pancha Siddhantika (Treatise on the five Astronomical Canons gives us information about older Indian texts which are now lost).

Varahamihira’s efforts gave astrology a form of science. Just the appreciation will not be enough, for the contribution he made for astrology.

While living in the famous astrology city of Ujjaain, he introduced many Astrological Granthas. Even his father was a very popular astrologer of his times.

Varahamihira was a renowned astrologer, and no treatise professing to deal with his works, howsoever objective it may be, can afford to ignore this aspect which greatly influenced (and continues to influence even now and perhaps more vigorously) the general life and thinking of the people, and a summary of some such beliefs will be found in the sixth chapter.
