Aryabhata’s life work was done by the time he was twentythree. If he wrote other books in later life, they have not come down to us (nor has his supposedly earlier work based on the midnight doctrine of time-keeping). We do not know when he died. One or two names of his purported direct disciples are mentioned by later authors. If they were, it is of no consequence: their work also has been lost.
