Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)
Yatnata (यत्नत) means “with effort”, according to Govinda Daivajña’s Pīyūṣadhārā (verse p.424), a commentary on Rāma Daivajña’s Muhūrtacintāmaṇi (AD 1600).—Accordingly, “How is that desired auspicious moment of time to be determined: in reply to this question, Kaśyapa spoke thus: In this manner, after considering all the good points, and having chosen, with effort [i.e., yatnata], the auspicious moment (lagna) according to the method taught by the Siddhāntas, the time of that auspicious moment should be calculated (prasādhayet). [...]”.
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.
