nakṣatradarśa नक्षत्रदर्श

Definition: (£ Gazer at the lunar mansions ’), an ‘ astro­loger,’ is mentioned in the list of victims at the Purusamedha, or 'human sacrifice,’ in the Yajurveda. A notice in the śatapatha Brāhmana indicates that that work regarded the practice of choosing a particular Naksatra under which to set up the sacrificial fires as an idle one, because it decides in favour of choosing the sun as one’s Naksatra.
