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: Yoga – Practice of a theory

I will not dwell too much on what Yoga is considered as in today’s world. There are a dime and dozen sites that talk about this. The explanations vary anywhere from being just exercises for the body, to a union of spiritual and physical, to a way to understand and be one with the soul and so on the definitions go. Any of these definitions can be taken based on the limitations… Read More

Prajnaparamita hrdaya sutram – Part 2

I had translated the first part of this Sutram in Part – 1. Continuing with the translation of the rest of this Sutram: cittAvaraNa-nAstitvAda atrasto viparyAsAtikrAnto niShTa-nirvANa prAptaH = cittA + varaNa + nAsti + tvAda (tvAdatta shortened?) (nAstit + vAda) + atra + sto + viparyas + sAti + krAnto + niShTa + nirvANa + prAptaH = observable + by description + non-existent + given by other / other given? (non-existent… Read More

Prajnaparamita hrdaya sutram – Part 1

There are so many rare gems in the Sanskrit literature. Some of which we should not even try to understanding until some of the core concepts have been understood. It is when we try to understand these literature without context that we end up with the messy translations that seem to be superstitious and meaningless. These rare gems can only be understood when you start delving deeper into understanding this reality around… 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.

The fifth dimension

Dimensions in modern science mostly refer to spatial dimensions. Some consider time as a dimension, some consider gravity as a dimension and the search is on for many other dimensions, everything is up for debate. To note though, all of them are only spatial dimensions. To note also, any location in space is considered to be adequately represented by 3 dimensions and hence modern science has moved on for the search for… Read More

Ancient Science: Modelling reality with Dhyanam

Modelling real world events as mathematical models is used for prediction or forecasting and is an obsession of humans. We believe mathematics is a universal language. We try to find a mathematical representation of any and everything in reality. Yet, it is strange that we fail to recognise the fact that none of these mathematical models come any near to representing the complexity of the variables involved in the unfolding of events… Read More

Ancient Science: Studying thoughts

In this 6th part of the series Exploring science in ancient science, I will write about “thought”. In the previous blog, Understanding Transformation, I had written how everything around me is just a transformation of some underlying, which appears to me as either matter, light or any other observable that I can observe around me. As I had indicated in the previous blog, according to ancient science, that something which appears to… Read More

Ancient science: Understanding transformation

This is the 5th blog of the series Exploring science in ancient science. I had devoted the previous blogs of this series to describe the difference in view of space and time and existence in ancient science. The system that is described, is a changing base network, which contains various observables having multiple paths which is existence. These paths move forward based on self-established logic. Work is performed to move forward in… Read More

Ancient science: Defining work done (Karma)

In this blog of the series of exploring science in ancient scriptures, I will talk about the definition of “work done” as per these scriptures. In the previous blog, I had defined Logic or saMkhya and explained how an “adaptive algorithm” was established based on the series of changes and how this adaptive algorithm drives the establishing of the logic during the rise of the self path of existence. Once established, I… Read More

Ancient science: Defining Logic (sAMkhya)

This is the third blog in the series Exploring science in ancient scriptures. In the previous two blogs, I had written about the difference in view of space, time and matter and explained the definition of existence according to ancient science. In the first blog I had explained how, if we considered this reality around us as a system, in this system, if we froze change across the system and viewed all… Read More

Ancient science: Defining existence

This is the second blog related to the topic “Exploring science in ancient scriptures“. In the first blog “View of matter and space“, I had explained how the perception of matter can be changed, by simply viewing this world around us as a network of substances rather than the individual substances, which is the modern science view of it. Viewing that appearance of network as an expanse becomes space. So, rather than… Read More

Ancient science: View of matter and space

This is the first blog related to the topic “Exploring science in ancient scriptures“. The ancient science deals with a lot more than just science visible in space, time and matter. But, obviously anything beyond space, time and matter is beyond the grasp of the current capability of our brains. Hence, when any document starts with the “inconceivable” or the “incomprehensible”, our brain freezes and we tend to classify such topics as… Read More

Exploring science in ancient scriptures

As I have tried to bring out in various translations and books, the ancient Sanskrit scriptures have pure science in them. But, the science in them is completely different from what we know in modern science. It is sad then that we try to equate the science in those scriptures to the science that we know as modern science. There are many instances of people claiming that ancient India had knowledge of… Read More

Bhagavad Gita’s Karma Yoga: Part 2

This is a continuation of the previous blog about Karma as described in Bhagavad Gita. As I have said, Karma really should mean “work: that which is done for energy translation to maintain the immovable/movable in reality “. The dimension of translation of energy should be across kAla rather than across space and time. As we read the chapter 3 of Karma Yoga, we can find further evidences for this. Further, I… 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.
