The nakshatra system of India attempted to mark the progress of the moon, sun, and planets through the sky, one of the earliest signs of astronomy. Ebenezer Burgess’ main argument is the originality of the nakshatra system in India. He attempts to refute the arguments by other scholars that the Hindus did not originate the “system of lunar asterisms”. Burgess also attempts to prove the early origin of this system, which is dated as early as the twelfth century B.C.E., and that the system did not originate with the Arabs or Chinese. The Chinese and the Arabs are invalidated as originating the nakshatra system. The author proves that the Arabs received their astronomical knowledge, at an early period, from direct communication with India. The Chinese and the Hindus are proven as having no relation whatsoever. The conclusion is that the lunar zodiac represented in the nakshatras originated with the Hindus or their immediate ancestry.
