Merge From the article created under a different (and less common) spelling. Mereda 10:22, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

The article now has conflicting birth years: 505 (from article lead and births cat) vs. 499 (in the merged section after the trig identities). This should be sorted out if possible, or if the year of birth is uncertain that should be noted. 24.241.226.16 00:33, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

He was not born in 505, this is a date mentioned in his astronomical treatise Panca-Siddhantika, see for example the Article on him by K. V. Sarma in Helaine Selin (Herausgeber) Encyclopedia of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine in non-western Cultures, Kluwer 1997. The date of birth and death are unknown (Sarma).--Claude J (talk) 07:12, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
