Different Harita in History
Sage Jabali had one student named Harita who was the author of Dharma and Smṛti books. If this Harita is the fellow student Agnivesa is not certain. There is reference about another Harita which one can know from the quotes of Vāgbhatta, hence he is from a later period.
Harita, the pupil of Atreya, is quoted in many famous medical works. He is frequently referred to as old Harita. He was a reputed authority acknowledged widely.
