(fl. India, 1638)
Haridatta, the son of Harajī, composed the Jagadbhūṣaṇa (see essay in Supplement) in 1638 in Mewar, Rajasthan, during the reign of Jagatsiṃha I (1628–1652); nothing else is known of him. The Jagadbhūṣaṇa consists of tables for computing planetary positions (utilizing the Babylonian “goal-year” periods) and solar and lunar positions. These tables are described by D. Pingree, “Sanskrit Astronomical Tables in the United States,” in Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, n.s. 58, pt. 3 (1968), 55b–59b; “On the Classification of Indian Planetary Tables,” in Journal of the History of Astronomy, 1 (1970); and “Sanskrit Astronomical Tables in England,” in Journal of Oriental Research (in press).
Nothing has been written on Haridatta II aside from what has been mentioned above.
