This article is an attempt to provide deeper understanding of Jyotish through the monumental classic Jataka Parijata, by the author Vaidyanatha Dikshita.
The work consists of original Sanskrit slokas translated into English with a detailed commentary on the same.
I pray that this work may be accepted in the Jyotish community and that it will encourage debate and research by teachers and students alike – Branka
Translation: Now begins Jātaka pārijata
Jāta-ka – Some translations of Jāta are: born, brought into existence by, engendered by grown, produced, arisen, caused and appeared. The word ‘ka’ implies that the event has manifest, i.e.. birth or the production has manifested/been created.
