An Ancient Indian Forgotten Science
It is being taught in some of the most prestigious institutions in England and Europe. NASA scientists applied its principles in the area of artificial intelligence. And yet, in the country of its birth it languishes as a forgotten science.
Vedic mathematics, which simplifies arithmetic and algebraic operations, has increasingly found acceptance the world over. Experts suggest that it could be a handy tool for those who need to solve mathematical problems faster by the day.
1.What is Vedic Mathematics?
It is an ancient technique, which simplifies multiplication, divisibility, complex numbers, squaring, cubing, square and cube roots. Even recurring decimals and auxiliary fractions can be handled by Vedic mathematics
2.Who Brought Vedic Maths to limelight?
The subject was revived largely due to the efforts of Jagadguru Swami Bharathikrishna Tirthaji of Govardhan Peeth, Puri Jaganath(INDIA) (1884-1960). Having researched the subject for years, even his efforts would have gone in vain but for the enterprise of some disciples who took down notes during his last days. That resulted in the book, Vedic Mathematics, in the 1960s. These are now available in a book called
by H.H. Jagadguru Swami Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj or online on www.magicalmethods.org
This website is created for all world teachers/students who wants to aquire new skills in mathematics.Vedic Mathematics is a form of mathematics that has been there in India from pre-historic times. Many saints and others (including Shankaracharyas) have contributed to this amazing mathematical idea for simple and complex computations. So I am devoting
some efforts to learn and spread Vedic Mathematics. These simple techniques is just one proof to show how much people have used their brain, when there was no pencil and paper (and of course calculator!). No wonder, great epics and other things have stood for centuries.
3.What is the basis of Vedic Mathematics?
The basis of Vedic mathematics, are the 16 sutras, which attribute a set of qualities to a number or a group of numbers. The ancient Hindu scientists (Rishis) of Bharat in 16 Sutras (Phrases) and 120 words laid down simple steps for solving all mathematical problems in easy to follow 2 or 3 steps.
