modern water diviners had failed and where, after drilling, they
found water at the depth he had predicted. The date of Varahamihira
is in fifth century AD In his treatise, Brihatsamhita, he has
written that he had secured the ancient books written by Manu,
Baladeva and Saraswata Muni to write his treatise. There are many
more examples like this.
