Exploring ancient science

The ancient Sanskrit scriptures have pure science in them. The science in them is completely different from what we know in modern science. An unbiased study of these texts, open our mind to the fact that “even the basic tenets of study of reality around us” can vary. It leads us to a very startling conclusion that all postulates, laws, experiments and principles need not always involve observables around us. In fact it questions the very basic assumptions that we have made regarding space and time and its relation to the observable individuals around us. It opens up a different world of viewing reality around us… Read More

Ancient Science: Observation and protected by observation

In quantum mechanics we talk about quantum particle(s) or entities being in every possible state (wave or particle) till an observer is present. As I have said in my books and many of my blogs, a fact that is questionable in such a definition is why have we only included the two states that we… Read More

Astrology: What is Mina rAshi?

Like many other terminologies, “rAshi” is also completely misunderstood in modern astrology. It typically is used to indicate one of the 12 (zodiac?) segments and hence starts the concept of janma rAshi or the sign under which you are born etc. So, minA rAshi is commonly translated as the pisces zodiac sign. I do not… Read More

How obscurity of astronomy can help understand concepts

As I had indicated in my previous blog “Why we should not be eager to become a space faring species?“, we should let the obscurity in the knowledge of the objects external to our earth remain obscure. As I had indicated, the tools that we have currently to detect and understand the various observable parameters… Read More

BOOKS

Empirical reality has been the focus of most scientific studies. But, humans have always been curious about how awareness, consciousness, sub-consciousness, or how the mind works. How are thoughts formed? Am I the mind? Is the brain responsible for consciousness? Are thoughts consciousness? Are there sub-conscious thoughts? Is the observable universe the truth? Is there a truth beyond reality? What is difference between a living being and a non-living being? What is the soul? This book talks about what the Surya Siddanta says about this.

I find our understanding of Shiva is quite different from what is described in these literatures. The notion of Shiva as a God, its religious association with divinity, as a belief or any emotions associated with it seems alien when these texts are translated and read. I find by associating emotions, judgement and conclusions based on judgement to the concept of Shiva, we have lost the knowledge of Shiva and romanticised it according to our needs. This book talks about what Shiva could possibly have been to the ancients based on which the various Sanskrit literature is written.

“Path of the Ancients crackles with compelling prose that moves effortlessly through the science, allowing Kalki to find her answers. The truth startles yet satisfies. By the book’s end, this inventive sci-fi mystery rewires the reader’s view of the world. The novel establishes a fascinating new series conceived by a thoughtful and imaginative author.” Self-Publishing Review

This is a fictional story exploring the possible aspects of our reality if what the Upanishads talk about is true.

Why we should not be eager to be a space faring species

As I have written previously, I find, we, as humans, when we create technology using the external matter around us, we have successfully ended up creating garbage. Does not matter how long an item lasts and what it was used for. It is still a perishable. It can be a Sony TV that conked out… Read More

Ancient Science: Explaining Samadhi

Samadhi is another of those loosely used terms, attributed to sages and seers and looked on with awe and described without any understanding of what the term means. I should say that I belonged to the same class of people. But, like all the other explanations I have tried to give in this blog related… Read More

Ancient Science: Which direction am I moving?

Which direction am I moving? This seems a very strange question to ask right! But, bear with me. In modern science we have it very clear. We have a past, a present and a future. We are moving from the past into the future where events that have started becoming complete their progress and hence… Read More

Ancient Science: What are kApha, pittA, vAtA and vAyu

pitta, vAtA and vAyu are another of those huge stream of terminologies which all use loosely, with everyone having a different meaning and a different understanding. Just like astrology, mantras, sthotrams and many other ancient concepts, these also have degraded over time and taken on a totally different form and meaning in modern times and… Read More

Astrology: Of expansion, extension, motion and time

As I had written in the blog on “Explaining the physics of motion“, the motion that we all experience and play with, i.e., movement from one physical location to another physical location is similar to movement within an airplane while the airplane itself is moving towards a destination. Our motion within the airplane makes no… Read More

What is common sense?

Wikipedia defines common sense as: “Common sense is sound, practical judgment concerning everyday matters, or a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge in a manner that is shared by (i.e. common to) nearly all people.” What is forgotten here is, this “practical sense” is actually shared equally by all living beings. We do not… Read More

Ancient Science: viShNu, kRShNa and rAmA

As I have indicated in my book “A research of Shiva: The Enigma“, Shiva, Isha, Rudra and the various other references used to “indicate Shiva” are completely different from each other. The reason all these tend to indicate the same concept is because of the projection of the higher dimensions onto a lower dimension of… Read More

Ancient Science: Force in nature

In modern science we recognise too many forces. But there are four fundamental forces that are recognised. Gravity, electromagnetic force, nuclear force(weak and strong). It is also suggested that these can be unified into a single force which manifests in different forms, yet the unification is far from explainable by our science. Moreover, forces in… Read More

BPHS – Translation of Chapter -1

The BPHS or bRhat Parashara hora shastram is considered to be the primary driver for a number of Sanskrit works on jyotiSha. As I have indicated a number of times in many posts in this blog, there needs to be a certain level of understanding before a knowledge strikes you in a totally different meaning… Read More

Astrology: Breaking the cause-effect chain

I had written in the previous blog about the differences between data-accumulation systems and logic based system. I had further said how the reality around us can be considered to be an accumulation of data, where “the changes” can be considered as data. As these changes or data accumulate, paths get created sustained and extended,… Read More

ABOUT THIS BLOG

The Upanishads have been translated by a number of people who preach about God and religion. They tend to work translations of the Upanishads into saying what they want for marketing. The translations have been adapted to reflect their own understanding of the world but more importantly adapted to talk about God, religion, kindness, Seva, helping and a lot of other concepts that promote them to exploit the nativity of gullible people.
