    छठी शताब्दी के लब्ध प्रतिष्ठित ज्योतिषविद्‌ वराहमिहिरकृत पञ्चसिद्धान्तिका भारतीय खगोल शास्त्र का एक प्रमुख सैद्धान्तिक ग्रन्थ है। उस समय के उपलब्ध प्रमुख पाँच ज्योतिष सिद्धान्तों – पौलिश, रोमिक, वासिष्ठ, सौर और पितामह को संकलित कर इस ग्रन्थ को अठारह अध्यायों में प्रस्तुत किया गया हे। यें पाँचों ग्रन्थ और उनकी टीकाएँ आज लुप्त हो चुकी हैं। पञ्चसिद्धान्तिका में वर्णित विषयों में सौर एवम्‌ रोमक सिद्धान्तों पर आधारित अहर्गण की गणना, अधिमास, क्षय तिथियों की गणना, वर्ष, मास आदि के सूत्र प्रस्तुत किए गए हैं। ग्रहों की गति का विश्लेषण तथा पौलिश, रोमक एवम्‌ सौर सिद्धान्त पर आधारित सूर्य एवम्‌ चन्द्र ग्रहण की गणना-विधि भी प्रस्तुत की गई हे।

    वराहमिहिर पहले ज्योतिषविद्‌ थे जिन्होंने अयनांश अर्थात्‌ विषुव के स्थानान्तरण का शुद्ध मान दिया। इस पुस्तक में त्रिकोणमिति के ज्या के शुद्ध मान की गणना भी प्रस्तुत की गई है।

    पञ्चसिद्धान्तिका का यह हिन्दी रूपान्तरण निश्चित ही सैद्धान्तिक खगोलिकी के शोधकर्ताओं एवम्‌ अन्य पाठकों के लिए उपयोगी होगा।

    The Aryabhatiya of Aryabhata by: Walter Eugene Clark 270.00 243.00

    The Aryabhatiya of Aryabhata is of great work in the annals of the history of Indian mathematics and astronomy. This volume is expected to give a complete translation (with notes) of the Aryabhatiya with references to some of the most important parallel passages. It is a brief descriptive work intended to supplement matters and processes which are generally known and agreed upon to give only the most distinctive features of Aryabhata’s own system. Many common places and many simple processes are taken for granted.
    The book vividly addresses topics such as dashagitika, ganitapada, kalakriya and gola in much details. Withstanding many a criticism from people like Brahmagupta on the theories of Aryabhata, this volume through the introductory chapter contends that the Aryabhatiya, on the whole, is quite genuine. It presents Aryabhata as an innovator, thus his difference from Smriti or tradition in his approach to many astronomical matters is fully justified. It also discusses a serious internal discrepancy in the Aryabhatiya about the stationary and revolutionary nature of earth.
    This book helps in introducing Aryabhata and the quintessential of Aryabhatiya to the mathematicians and astronomers of the new generations, for whom the original language Sanskrit and the old processes might be unknown.

    Varadambikaparinaya Campu of Tirumalamba by: Dr. Sujatha Reddy 800.00 720.00

    Tirumalamba, a poetess of the Vijayanagara Empire, wrote the Varadambikaparinayam, the story of marriage of King Acyuta Deva Rāya, in Sanskrit which forms the 5th volume of the series: Women Writings in Sanskrit.

    In the court of King Acyutaraya (1529-42 CE) of Vijayanagara there was a poetess of great merit and her name was Oduva Tirumalamba. She was employed as a reader in the royal court whose duty was perhaps the reading of poetical and other compositions to the ladies of the royal family as well as to the royal court. Tirumalamba was popularly known as Oduva (reader) Tirumalamba. Evidently she was a genius, since she was an excellent musician and grammarian, possessing in addition a good command of rhetoric and diction. She was a scholar of Hindu epics, poetry, drama and philosophy and had other accomplishments also; she was a linguist and could write in many scripts. In addition to all these excellent qualities she must have possessed great beauty, for King Acyutaraya became so enamoured of her that he elevated her to the position of his queen (Rajamahisi).

    We learn most of these details from the epilogue to the Varadambika-parinaya-campu, celebrating the wedding of King Acyutaraya and his senior queen Varadambika. It is learnt from epigraphical and other sources that Varadambika was the principal queen (Pattamahisi) of King Acyutaraya. We also learn from the epilogue to the campu that she was a patroness of learned priests, scholars and poets and that she made liberal gifts and endowments to temples and religious institutions.

    This poem also describes the birth of Prince Venkatadri, the first born of Varadambika. But it cannot be denied that the work shows that Tirumalamba was a highly educated woman, who wrote for the cultured.
