Varaha Mihiraís Brihat Jataka from time immemorial has been considered as the standard textbook on Astrology. The commentaries by Bhattotpala have made Brihat Jataka immortal and a standard work. The English translation of Varaha Mihiraís Brihat Jataka is a monumental work in completing which the difficulties in translating a beautiful, technical and suggestive work in Sanskrit had to be surmounted by hard labour, profound research and want of adequate expressions. There are several translations of this matchless book into English available in the market. But Prof. Raoís translation has been acclaimed not only as authentic, based mainly on the commentaries of Bhattopala but also as embodying in the notes, Prof. Raoís vast practical experience in the field of astrology. It is hoped that this translation, out of print for a long time, will supply a long-felt want to the vast number of astrological students and savants, for an authoritative presentation of Varaha Mihiraís treatise in simple English. Printed Pages: 637.
