EDITORIAL NOTE: A devotee of Baba submitted the Master's birth data, without revealing His identity, to a Bombay astrologer, Govind Janardan Borkar, who gave this reading from the Bhrigu-Samhita. It was first published in the Meher Baba Journal, May 1941, from which we reprint it by special permission.
Bhrigu Rishi was one of the great Rishis of ancient times. He lived about 4,000 years ago on the banks of the Narmada river, and the present city of Broach derives it’s name from this great Rishi who lived there. His knowledge of the science of astrology was very deep and proficient and in his own lifetime and ever since, has been considered an authority on the subject. The Bhrigu-Samhita written by him is a compilation of thousands of Kundalis or life charts.
The Bhrigu-Samhita derives its name from the great sage Bhrigu who wrote it. Samhita is a Sanskrit word meaning an arrangement of the hymnical texts of the Vedas into short sentences, named after the person by whom it was made; a compilation or compendium of laws; a code; a digest.
The Bhrigu-Samhita would thus mean a compilation or code (on astrology) written by Bhrigu. These life readings are wonderfully accurate, as testified by all experts and others during all ages after the book was written by the great Rishi. Every astrologer worth the name knows of its existence, but very few possess it. None hitherto succeeded in securing the whole of it; and it is only lately that some parts of the work have been published in Meerut.
A word about the nature of this important work must be said here. It gives innumerable horoscopes of persons that can be born at all points of time, on every day of every month of every year, so that no horoscope of any person escapes being laid out in it; and the past, present, and future events of all persons have been told with admirable accuracy with the help of astronomical science.
