A solar eclipse is a natural event that takes place on Earth when the Moon moves in its orbit between Earth and the Sun (this is also known as an occultation). It happens at New Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction with each other. If the Moon was only slightly closer to Earth,…… Continue reading Why Moon Is Not Bathed In Earth-shine In Solar Eclipse?
According to Suryasiddhanta 1955885109 years have elapsed (in 2009 AD) since the beginning of Creation.
Modern Astronomy confirms this.
The source of the radio waves appears to be located almost exactly at the Galactic Center, and may coincide with a super massive black hole. This black hole has the equivalent mass of 4 million suns and is the source of most of the gravitational energy in our galaxy. Thus the Galactic Center is the Sun around which our Sun rotates.’
Considering all these facts I tend to surmise that the Physical Meru is in the Arctic ( I have a post that the inside of the Earth is not hollow) ans also a spiritual plane.
I had posted articles on practical application of Science,Dealing with daily life, Botany,Zoology, Food and other vital subjects that deal with our daily needs, developed by Hinduism.
Here I am furnishing details from the Surya Siddhanta that deals with Astronomy in detail.
I had earlier posted an article on Vishnu’s Navel Galaxy and how it has been validated by modern Astronomy.
The Surya Siddhanta is one of the oldest treatises (siddhanta) in Hindu astronomy. The extant text as edited by Burgess (1860) is medieval (c. 12th century), but it is clearly based on older versions, which may go back to before the Common Era.
It has rules laid down to determine the true motions of the luminaries, which conform to their actual positions in the sky. It gives the locations of several stars other than the lunar nakshatras and treats the calculation of solar eclipses. as well as solstices eg.summer solstice 21/06 Significant coverage is on kinds of time, length of the year of gods
As I was lecturing a senior scientist from a reputed Institution was so upset that when I was proving the inadequacy of Science especially Newton, in explaining many physical events both atomic and in Astrophysics,he interrupted me that None should speak ill of Newton.
My reply from the podium was that when I am talking Vedas and about Shankaracharya, Newton does not come any where near and asked the gentleman to wait till I complete the lecture.
I continued with the arguments in the lecture.
I shall deal with the details of the lecture in a separate post.
It is a different matter that the gentlemen met my friend and informed he shall read Sanskrit and Shankara before talking about these issues.
Now let us see in this post what our Vedas and ancient texts say on Laws of Motion,Gravity?
