Chamatkara Chintamani is a revered treatise on the predictive part of Hindu astrology. It comprises one hundred and eight Sanskrit Slokas written by Bhatta Narayana. Brij Behari Lal Sharma, the modern translator and commentator of this treatise, writes that it was probably written in the 14th Century A.D. and that the author belonged to a Brahmin family hailing from Maharashtra which had settled in Mysore, Karnataka.[1] This text is also known as Bhava Chintamani.

Chamatkara Chintamani is a Jyotihśāstra and a reference book, in which Bhatta Narayana, through one hundred eight slokas arranged in nine chapters with each chapter dedicated to each one of the nine planets, gives effects of each planet in each one of the twelve houses/rasi with reference to its location from other planets.[2] Each sloka reads the influence of a particular planet in a particular house irrespective of the sign falling on that house.[3]
