Comment: From the Preface: The main principles outlined in these Aphorisms appear in the now available text of Parasara, Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra. Chapters 7 to 11, Chapters 24 to 27, and a part of the 35th chapter present the system of Jaimini. These portions appear to be inserted into Parasara's text either by Parasara himself or by some other later writer. This is clear from a comparison of the principles outlined by Jaimini with those appearing in the other chapters of Parasara's text. If the student of Parasara's text is not careful, he will mix up the two systems & get himself in contradictions & confusions. [Emphasis original.] Jaimini himself clearly stated that what he has not touched upon is to be taken from the texts of other great masters, provided the principles given in these texts do not run contrary to what he has laid down. This makes the present translator hold that Jaimini's Aphorisms are contemporaneous with or later than Parasara's text.
