Dinakṛt (दिनकृत्) refers to the “sun”, according to the Bṛhatsaṃhitā (chapter 3), an encyclopedic Sanskrit work written by Varāhamihira mainly focusing on the science of ancient Indian astronomy astronomy (Jyotiṣa).—Accordingly, “If the halo should be to the north of the sun there will be rain; if to the south there will be wind; if on both sides there will be fear from floods; if above the sun (towards the meridian) then the king, if below it (towards the horizon), then his subjects, will perish. If the sun [i.e., dinakṛt] (āditya) should be of blood colour when in mid-heaven, or if he should appear red by a dust storm the reigning prince will die”.
