Chyuthi Samskaram

Chyuthi is Orbital Eccentricity. If the motion of the planet is circular, there wont be any eccentricity. As it is elliptical, eccentricty has to be computed. Its values range from 0 to 1 at Ellipse, 0 at Circle and 1 at Parabola ! Chyuthi Samskaram
 in Indian Astronomy means to compute the eccentricity of the planet and reduce the Mean Longitude of the Planet to its Heliocentric Longitude ( Vikshepa Vritteeya Manda Sphuta ).
