The Bhrigu Samhita is an astological treatise of utmost importance in Vedic Astrology. The creation of this compendium of Astrology is attributed to Sage Maharishi Bhrigu. This compendium is the only one used in North India equivalent of the Nadi System of Astrology in Southern Parts of India.

Maharishi Bhrigu created this masterpiece in Treta Yuga in the Vedic Period. Bhrigu Samhita is unique as it is based on Individual horoscopes and minute details like Name, Date of Birth, Names of Relatives, age of individual at the time of seeking astrological guidance and his / her circumstances are pretold.

The masterpiece has details not of this life but of previous and future lives of an Individual.

It was a curse from goddess Lakshmi which mandated that Brahmins will lose their wealth after this curse goddess directed Bhrigu to write the Bhrigu Samhita through which the Brahmins will be able to foretell the future and earn their livelihood.

The Ashram of Maharishi was in present day Ballia (U.P.), India. Major part of Bhrigu Samhita was destroyed during Muslim Invasions at that time.

Maharishi Bhrigu was the first compiler of predictive astrology. He compiled about 500,000 horoscopes and recorded the life details and events of various persons. This study culminated in the birth of the science (shastra) of determining the quality of time (Hora) and is the Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra.
These Horoscopes were based upon the planetary positions of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu (North Node of the Moon) and Ketu (South Node of the Moon).

After that, Maharishi Bhrigu gave his predictions on different types of horoscopes compiled by him with the help of Lord Ganesha in a brief and concise manner. The total permutations/possible horoscope charts that can be drawn with this is about 45 million. Maharishi taught this art of predictions to his son (Shukra) and other pupils.

The Original Bhrigu Samhita was destroyed during the Muslim Invasion of India during the 12th and 13th Centuries. Some parts still remain with the Brahmin community in India. It still has thousands of horoscopes which sage bhrigu analyzed and interpreted.

Bhrigu Rishi created the Bhrigu Samhita which is a compilation of several independent works. He was the first compiler to create a work on the science of future telling the fifth Veda of Treta Yuga. The earlier four Vedas were written by Lord Brahmna.

Bhrigu Samhita today can predict with accuracy the dates of events yet to unfold in a natives life, some say that the hidden meanings in the Bhrigu Samhita can also point to world events like catastrophes, Political Changes, Earthquakes, Wars and the End of the Universe…
