Abstract: 

This paper presents the principle of relativity of motion as described in Āryabhaṭa’s text Āryabhaṭīya. This principle is likely to have been instrumental in the framing of Āryabhaṭa’s theory that the earth rotated on its axis and, therefore, it has played a very important role in the history of astronomy.
