Omens in Medieval Karnataka

Title:Omens in Medieval Karnataka
Author:N. Nandishwara
Publication:Itiasa Darshana / Karnataka Itihasa Academy, Bangalore
Enumeration:Vol 17, 2002
Abstract:Since ancient times omen, one of the popular branch of astrology has passed on to us. There is lot of writings on this subject, right from Vashishta of the Epic period to Varahamihira author of Brihatsamhita., Chaunadaraya who wrote Lokopakara, Basavaraja’s Shivatatvaratnakara and many more works. The author has listed different types of omens such as omens of birds, animals, parts of body, sounds, sneeze etc. which may refer to good or bad omens. This belief in omens was very strong which apparently throws light on the emotional aspect of our ancestors.
