Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: Wisdom Library: Brihat Samhita by Varahamihira
Upagūḍha (उपगूढ) refers to “being filled with”, according to the Bṛhatsaṃhitā (chapter 10), an encyclopedic Sanskrit work written by Varāhamihira mainly focusing on the science of ancient Indian astronomy astronomy (Jyotiṣa).—Accordingly, “If the disc of Saturn (śanaiścara) should appear glossy and if his course should lie through the constellations of Śravaṇa, Svāti, Hasta, Ārdrā, Bharaṇī or Pūrvaphālguni, the Earth will be covered with water [i.e., pracura-salila-upagūḍhā]. If his course should lie through the constellations of Āśleṣā, Śatabhiṣaj, Jyeṣṭhā, there will be prosperity in the land but slight rain; if his course should lie through Mūla, mankind will suffer from hunger, from weapons and from drought. We will now proceed to state the effects of Saturn’s course through each of the 27 constellations”.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.

[Sanskrit to German]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
