Ancient Mathematical Treatises

Jyotisa, as we have seen, consists of three sections. There was a scholarly man in the Matha who was particularly learned in this science. We wished to honour him with a title and decided upon "Triskandha- Bhaskara". "Skandha" literally means a big branch springing from the trunk of a tree. The three skandhas of Jyotisas are: siddhanta, hora and samhita. Know More

Eye of the Vedapurusa

Jyotisa, which is the science of the celestial bodies and the eye of the Vedapurusa, consists of three "skandhas" or sections. So it is called "Skandha-trayatmakam".

The work incorporating his teachings is called the Suryasiddhanta. Know More

Vedic mantra

A Vedic mantra or the stanza of an ordinary poem is divided into four parts. In most metres there are four feet and each foot is divided into the same number of syllables or mantras.

Yoga and Speech (Hindu Dharma)

When you play the harmonium the nagasvaram or the flute the sound is produced by the air discharged in various measures through different outlets. Our throat has a similar system to produce sound.

Essence of the Upanisadic Teaching (Hindu Dharma)

The phenomenal universe, in the view of modern science, is embraced by the concepts of time and space [It exists in the time-space frame]. The panisads declare that only by being freed from time and space factors can we grasp the ultimate truth that is at the source of the cosmos. I told you about the horizon - where we are right there the horizon is. Recognition of this truth takes us beyond space. In this way we must also try to transcend time. Know More

The Vedas are Infinite(Hindu Dharma)

If the cosmos of sound (sabda-prapanca) enfolds all creation and what is beyond it, it must naturally be immensely vast.

Religion and Society

"social life" they-the reformers-do not have in mind anything relating to the Self.
