About the Book:

Present second volume translates all the verses in English. Translation is not literal but in mathematical terms, but preserving the technical terms in Sanskrit. Verses in praise of god have been left out not because of disrespect. With all devotion inspired by Samanta Chandrashekhar this is not the purpose of the second volume. In addition to translation, each formula has been explained or derived according to modern mathematics and astronomers and some times with other countries and with modern astronomy. This was the method and purpose of Samanta himself.

Technical terms and their calculations cannot be explained in words alone. So a general mathematical and technical introduction is given at beginning of each chapter with bibliography or source reference for further study. In that light only, the methods proved in the chapter can be understood. Where-ever considered useful method have also been explained with examples, based on text as well as modern astronomy.

About the Author:

Scope- Original book was written in 2500 Sanskrit verses in Oriya script on Palm leaves. It was published with introduction in English by Prof. Jogesh Chandra Roy of Ravenshyaw College, Cuttack by Calcutta University in 1899. Subsequently same edition was reproduced with approximately same translation by Pandit Vir Hanumana Shastri, by Utkal University Bhubaneswar. This was reprinted by Dharmagrantha Stroes, Cuttack. Some Parts have not been translated and explained. First volume of this book renders the Sanskrit verses in Devanagari script with literal Hindi translation. It also contains the original introduction.

Present second volumes translates all the verses in English. Translation is not literal but in mathematical terms, but preserving the technical terms in Sanskrit. Verses in praise of god have been left out, not because of disrespect. With all devotion inspired by Samanta Chandrashekhar this is not the purpose of the second volume. In addition to translation, each formula has been compared with other Indian astronomers and some times with other countries and with modern astronomy. This was the method and purpose of Samanta himself.

Technical terms and their calculations cannot be explained in words alone. So a general mathematical and technical introduction is given at beginning of each chapter with bibliography or source reference for further study. In that light only, the methods proved in the chapter can be understood. Where-ever considered useful, methods have also been explained with examples based on text as well as modern astronomy.

In Sanskrit verses some number or statement has been contributed in many verses due to poetic and literal explanations. They have been clubbed together for translation. For brevity and simplicity many parts have been given in chart form. Chapter 23 contains only verses in praise of god. Most of these verses have two or more meanings. It cannot be expressed in other language, nor it is related to the main topic. It is therefore, omitted.
