Varaha Mihira

Varaha Mihira, the father of astrology, wrote several important works like Brhat Jataka, Brhat Samhita, Yoga Yatra, Panca Siddhantika (on astronomy) and Prasna Vallabha (apocryphal) The date of Varaha Mihira is controversial, some say circa 100 BC others 500 AD.Mihira was one of the Nine Gems, navaratna, in the court of the great king, Vikramaditya of Ujjain. I just admire Varaha Mihira, and its nothing related to the blogs i am posting here.
