Known is a drop; Unknown is an Ocean

Theory of Relativity already described in Srimad Bhagavatam

Theory of relativity: If we are in outer space and compare time then the time on earth will run faster compared to the time in space.

Srimad Bhagavatham: King Revadhan had a daughter, Revathi. He travelled to "Satya logam" to meet Brahma and asked Him "Suggest me the right groom for my daughter". Brahma replied "For the few minutes you were here, 27 Chatur-yugam's have already passed on earth. None of your kith and kin are alive there. When you return, it will be Krishna avatar time on earth. Marry your daughter to Balaram, brother of Krishna".

Theory of relativity already described in Bhagavatam!
It also goes on to say: In early yugas people were taller and as yugas passed people became short. So, when Revathi was about to marry Balaram, she was taller than Balaram!




Be Vegetarian!

What ever I eat they fundamentally fall under one of the following basic tastes: Sweet, sour, bitter, salt or spicy. When I can taste them (with multiple options in each category) without killing an animal, why should I kill one? - V.M.Guruprasath



Lokpal already thought in Manu school

A government officer, owing to selfish desire when he is
favorably disposed towards those who are desirous to achieve
their own selfish ends or by making use of false balance, false measures, and
false calculation owing to greediness should be punished with a fine equal to the loss of revenue and multiplied by the serial number of the circumstances
of the guilt - Manu Dharma. (Lokpal already available & thought in the Manu School)
Serial Number of Circumstances of guilt are as follows:
1. Not caring to know the information gathered by espionage
2. Neglecting to supervise the dispatch of work in his own department
3. Occasional loss of revenue to the
government owing to his ignorance
4. Loss of revenue to the government owing to his idleness
5. Loss of revenue due to inadvertence in perceiving sound and other objects of sense
6. Loss by being timid when he is afraid of clamour, unrighteousness,
and untoward results
7. Loss of revenue owing to selfish desire
8. Cruelty due to anger
9. By lack of dignity when he is surrounded by a host of learned and needy sycophants
10. False calculation owing to greediness





Did Indians discover New Zealand?

Did Indians discover New Zealand? The Tamil Bell is a broken bronze bell discovered in approximately 1836 by the missionary William Colenso. It was being used as a pot to boil potatoes by Māori women near Whangarei in the Northland Region of New Zealand.The inscription running around the rim of the bell has been identified as old Tamil. Translated it says "Muhayideen Baksh’s ship’s bell". Some of the characters in the inscription are of an archaic form no longer seen in modern Tamil script, thus suggesting that the bell could be about 500 years old
Large Ships in India could have been possible owing to below reasons:
1. Yuktikalpataru mentions 27 different types of ships with largest being 276 ft x 36 ft x 27 ft and with a weight of 2300 tonnes.
2. Cheran Chenguttuvan had a fleet under him
3. Hueng Tsang notices a fleet of 30,000 ships with King of Assam
4. Ludovico Varthema saw vessels of 1000 tons built as Masulipatnam
5. The Kakatiyas and Cholas had a fleet
6.Henry Yule in Cathey mentions Rajput ships enroute to China
7. Vijayanagar empire had 300 ports etc..,





Curd - The Elixir

Eating curd is very healthy, since it introduces helpful bacteria like lactobacillus, and bifidia. This is called as a pro-biotic, a food that contains organisms which help the host body digest food, gain immunity and lengthen life. For this path- breaking discovery, Mechnikov shared the Nobel Prize in 1908.



Aryan-Dravidian is a false thoery

Mny ppl askd me Aryans cme frm West n invadd Dravidians wid power n forcd deir culture on Dravidians. Is dis true? D ans is No. Dis theory was propagated by Max Muller, 2 false propagate Vedic culture cme frm West. Dey say d invasion happnd in 1500 BC but Vedas r mor dan 2500 BC old. Arnd 1900 BC ppl did migrate frm West (River Saraswati) 2 River Ganges coz river Saraswati dried up. Vedic culture is indigenous



Meat and Global Warming.

According to the University of Chicago, being vegan is more effective in the fight against global warming; a vegan is responsible for the release of approximately 1.5 fewer tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year than is a meat-eater.
A recent UN report states "Meat industry produces more greenhouse gases than all the SUVs, cars, trucks, planes, and ships in the world combined."
Reducing meat consumption is the single most effective thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. :)

Buddha replying to Mahamati on Meat eating.

MEAT EATING:

Mahamati inquires Buddha (The Blessed One) why should one refrain from meat eating? The Blessed One replied:

1. Meat is not agreeable to the wise: it has a nauseating odour, it causes a bad
reputation, it is food for the carnivorous; I say this, Mahamati, it is not to be eaten
2. To those who eat [meat] there are detrimental effects, to those who do not, merits; Mahamati, you should know that meat-eaters bring detrimental effects upon themselves.
3. From eating [meat] arrogance is born, from arrogance erroneous imaginations issue, and from imagination is born greed; and for this reason refrain from eating [meat].
4. For profit sentient beings are destroyed, for flesh money is paid out, they are both evil-doers and [the deed] matures in the hells called Raurava (screaming), etc.
5. One who avoids meat, etc., will be born, because of this fact, in the family of the
Brahmins or of the Yogins, endowed with knowledge and wealth
6. Let one avoid all meat-eating [whatever they may say about] witnessing, hearing,and suspecting; these theorisers born in a carnivorous family understand this not.
7. As greed is the hindrance to emancipation, so are meat-eating, liquor, etc.,
hindrances.
8. There may be in time to come people who make foolish remarks about meat eating, saying, "Meat is proper to eat, unobjectionable, and permitted by the Buddha."
9. Therefore, do not eat meat which will cause terror among people, because it
hinders the truth of emancipation; [not to eat meat—] this is the mark of the wise.


Sethu-Samudram.

Hmmm.. seems Ram was a brilliant engineer!
1. Valmiki Ramayan says, Ram reached Danushkodi and saw a huge sea. He ordered the sea to part but the sea didin. So He took his Agnibhaan. Then Sea King appeared and said if u fire Agnibhaan fishes and other creatures living here wud die.This sea is shallow and not deep so please construct a bridge over me to cross.
2. Ram then with the help from Vanara Sena piled sand, on top of the sand placed coral rocks and on top layered clay to cement them. Once completed Ram and his Sena reached Thalaimannar on the Srilankan side.
3. The Geological Survey of India and the Sethu project had conducted independent survey of the Sethu Samudaram and have reported the same layer of mix.
This proves world's first sea bridge was constructed by Lord Ram and it is still there. Do we need any other proof to prove His engineering skills?

Some say the coral rocks are natural. The Geological survey of India in its report have mentioned that corals generally grow on hard base but in Ram sethu the corals are on soft sand. So some one had collected the corals and placed them!

The Britishers claimed that this is not part of Indian mythology but part of Islamic mythology where Adam was kicked out of Heaven and he fell on earth at Danushkodi and Adam walked across the bridge to Srilanka. Hence it is called Adam's Bridge. Hmmm. For Adam to cross the bridge some one had already constructed the bridge..Who constructed it ..Ram?

Skanda Puranam states that Lord Shiva says if people stop worshiping him at Ram Sethu then He has no place at Rameshwaram. Hmmm..
1. TR Baalu sent a dredging machine to dredge and break Ram Sethu the dredging machine broke.
2. Then he sent a crane to lift the dredger, the crane broke.
3. Then a Russian engineer was brought to analyze, the Russian engineer slipped on Ram Sethu and broke both his legs.
4. Then to break the voodoo. A pooja was conducted. The then local Congress MLA Cho Balakrishnan conducted the coconut breaking ceremony..hmm few days later his car met with an accident.. They all might be coincidences!!!!

Section 295 of Indian law states that any thing considered as sacred by a sect of people cannot be destroyed. If done then it will invokes criminal action.

In 1958 when E.V.Ramasamy Nayakar broke a Ganesh idol, the Supreme Court of India accused him of guilty as per this section 295. Since Ram Sethu is considered sacred by many Hindus it cannot be dredged.

Technically 21 committees have been formed and all have suggested alternative routes.

Economically this project will only lead to loss. Since only ships less than 30000 tons can only pass through this sethu. Only 5% of the total ships in the world are less than 30000 tons.Aship coming from Maldives can circumnavigate Srilanka and travel with speeds of 12 - 14 knots. But if it had to go via the Sethu, it needs a pilot and the speed has to be reduced to 4-5 knots.

Dionysus, an abridged version of Prithu with Soma equated to wine?

Dionysus an abridged version of Prithu with Soma equated to wine?
Dionysus (or Father Bachhus) was a Greek God of
wine who was created from Zeus’s thigh. Dionysus was also a great king,
and was recognised as the first among all kings, a conqueror and
constructive leader. Could there be an Indian equivalent of Dionysus?

Prithu was the son of King Vena. The latter was considered a
wicked man whom the great sages could not tolerate, especially after he
told them that the elixir soma should offered to him in prayer and not to
the gods (Bhagavata Purana IV.14.28). The great sages thereafter
performed certain rites and killed Vena. But since this led immediately
to lawlessness and chaos, the rshis decided to rectify it by coronating a
strong and honest person. The rshis therefore churned the right arm (or
thigh; descriptions vary) of the dead body (of Vena) to give birth to a fully
grown Prithu. It was Prithu, under counsel from rshi Atri (father of
Soma),who reconstructed society and brought about economic prosperity.
Since he became such a great ruler, the Puranas have called him adi-raja(first king) of the world. So did the Satapatha Brahmana (v.3.5 4.).


In the absence of a cult of Soma in India, it is perhaps inevitable
that Megasthenes and the other Greeks, in translating Indian
experiences for Greek audiences, should pick on adi-raja Prithu who is
“tinged with Soma” in a number of ways and bears such a close
resemblance to Dionysus in the circumstances of his birth, and identify
him as Dionysus. If we accept identifying Dionysus with Prithu, then
indeed by a calculation based on the Puranas (done by D.R.Mankad, Koti
Venkatachelam, K.D.Sethna, and others), it can be conclusively shown
that indeed 6451 years had elapsed between Prithu and a famous
Chandragupta. This calculation exactly identifies Sandrocottus with
Gupta Chandragupta and not with Maurya Chandragupta. The
calculation also identifies Heracles with Hari Krishna (Srikrishna) of
Dwarka.

Historicity of Ramayana

A Tamil book by N.P.Ramadurai, a scholar from Thanjavur, whose
findings were presented at the Chennai seminar, Ancient History
Through Astronomy, concludes that the date of Ram’s birth is 17-1-10205
BC, and Sri Krishna’s is 23-7-3185 BC. “The findings have been
based on information relating to astronomy culled from the Vedas, the
Agamas and other ancient Sanskrit works,” stated Mahalingam.

[Sage Valmiki, the celebrated composer of Ramayana records the
birth of Lord Rama as Chaitra Shuddha Navami (9th), on Punarvasu
Nakshatra and five plants were exalted then; Sun in Mesha upon 10 deg.,
Mars in Capricorn at 28 deg., Jupiter in Cancer at 5 deg., Venus in
Pisces at 27 deg. And Saturn in Libra at 20 deg., the Sun, Mars and
Rahu were in Dasharatha’s nakshatra.
Calculating further backwards for the astral combination noted
above, the date concludes to be only 4th December 7323 B.C. The starry
configurations mentioned at the time of birth of Lord Rama are so unique
that they have occurred only once so far in history, viz., on 4th of
December, 7323 B.C. (however academically speaking, the date could
well be before this date like some day in Treta Yug but the starry
constellation would be very similar to the one of 4th December, 7323 BC.)]

So definitely Lord Rama is more than 7000 years old !




Indian Identity

The correct perception of Indian identity is we are a people who
have always constituted a nation living in a geographical location
spanning from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, from Attak to Car Nicobar,
bound together in a continuing civilization of more than 10,000 years, a
people who are mostly of Hindu religious faith or of those others of
separate but equally respected faith, whose ancestry is however Hindu.
That is how the word Indian evolved. - Dr. Subramanyan Swamy




Lord Macaulay about Indians!.

 “We must at present do our best to
form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom
we govern, a class of persons, Indians in blood and colour, but English
in taste, in opinions morals and in intellect”. For this to happen
the English language should be foisted and fostered amongst
this class of Indians.

- Lord Macaulay in 1835.





National Language of India: Sanskrit

National language of India: Sanskrit

There are two reasons for the decline in the spread of Hindi. First,
Hindi began to be promoted by native Hindi speakers such as
Purushottamdas Tandon and Dr.Raghuvira, unlike in the past when
Gandhiji and Rajaji, whose mother tongue was not Hindi, were leading
the campaign. The native Hindi speakers were so virulent in their
campaign for the language that they became purists. They were soon
perceived as fanatics. Unfortunately these enthusiasts made the
acceptance of Hindi a test of patriotism, and sought to raise knowledge of
Hindi immediately as a minimum qualification for jobs.

Hindi became not only discredited in the eyes of the south but a
symbol of imposition of the North on the South. Naturally the South
revolted. Southerners also feared losing jobs due to the natural
disadvantage of not knowing Hindi from childhood, in competition with
those whose mother-tongue was Hindi. Thus, the nation had to witness
the language riots of 1965 that threatened national unity.

Hindi, however, is still practically speaking the best link language
today. But it is not the best language as an educational medium and for
learned discourse. It can never be accepted as the national language. In
the centuries to come, it is Sanskrit that will be the most sensible
language for us. There are two reasons for it. The first is that all Indian
languages have a high proportion of words taken from Sanskrit. In the
case of Bengali and Malayalam it may be 90 per cent, while in the case of
Tamil it may be at least 35 per cent (even in the DMK version of “pure”
Tamil). Bengali is proudly referred to as the “daughter” of Sanskrit, but
Tamil which has a proud history of its own, thanks to the long unbroken
reign of the Chola kingdoms can be easily thought of as the “sister” of
Sanskrit. For this reason, Sankritized Hindi is easier to understand for
the Southerners (and more difficult for those Northerners like Nehru
steeped in Urdu). The late Annadurai used to say that for Sanskritized
Hindi, “na vadiyar” (I am teacher). Incidentally, the Tamil word “vadiyar”
comes from the Sanskrit word “vadi” (preacher). For this reason of
common vocabulary, Sanskrit is ultimately the best national language for
India.

Secondly, international research in today’s most advanced area of
computers, namely, Artificial Intelligence, which is to revolutionize the
knowledge systems of the 21st Century, is now increasingly coming to the
conclusion that Sanskrit is the best language to store knowledge in a
computer. Writing in the spring 1985 issue of the Articifial Intelligence,
Dr.Rick Briggs of the US National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA),
states in an article titled “Knowledge Representation in Sanskrit and
Artificial Intelligence” that:
“In the past twenty years, much time, effort, money has been
expended on designing an unambiguous representation of natural
languages to make them accessible to computer processing.
Understandably, there is widespread belief that natural languages
are unsuitable for the transmission of many ideas that artificial
languages can render with great precision and mathematical rigour.
There is at least one language, Sanskrit….(in which) can be
reckoned a method …. that is identical not only in essence but in form
with current work in Artificial Intelligence.
This article demonstrates that a natural language (Sanskrit) can
serve as an artificial language also, and that much work in Artificial
Intelligence has been reinventing a wheel millenia old”.
Artificial Intelligence will revolutionize all sciences in another fifty
years. According to Dr.Briggs, Sanskrit is the best language for it. It is
pity that we, the inventors of Sanskrit, have to learn these facts from
foreigners, but it is better late than never.
Three decades after trying to make natural languages compatible
to computer programming, scientists have begun to realize that they
were beaten to it 2,600 years ago. Though much removed in time, space
and culture, a 7th century B.S. Sanskrit grammarian seems to have
provided all the answers to today’s computer problems. Sanskrit is well
suited for encrypting without ambiguity.

The grammarian – Panini – is now being called the first software
man, without the hardware. And the focus is on the roughly 4,000 rules
of Sanskrit grammar that the evolved. Rules that are so scientific and
logical in manner that they closely resemble structures used by
computer scientists throughout the world.
How does Panini’s grammar work? Grammar is basically an
abstraction of the language. As a rule, grammar is usually written after
a language has developed. Sanskrit has other forms of grammar, but
Panini’s is the only one which with only 4,000 rules successfully covers
almost the entire range. And each word under the Panini grammar can
be traced back to its root. Quite akin in form and essence to computer
languages like say COBOL or FORTRAN.
In a natural language like for instance English – ambiguity is
inherent in a large number of utterances. A crude example would be the
world “bank” – as in a river bank, or a commercial bank. Another
hindrance is syntax is, for all intents and purposes, independent of
meaning. So computer scientists would like to eliminate such
considerations. Yet, in other sentences, the syntax contributes to the
meaning and here one wishes to extract it. Scientists say the degree to
which a language sounds ambiguous and cumbersome is the degree to
which that language is “natural” and deviates from precise or “artificial”.
But Panini has made Sanskrit precise, concise and complete. It is
like a set of condensed codes for the entire language with some rules
attached. It is a terse, very condensed form of Sanskrit, which
paradoxically at times becomes so abstruse that a commentary is
necessary to clarify it. But the beauty of it is that it can formulate logical
relations in the language with scientific precision. Panini, scientists
point out, can be conceived like a computer that generates correct
words/sentences with the basic inputs. The computer, taking the inputs,
uses the Panini rules and flashes the correct words or sentences in a
logical order.
Scientists have gone a step forward. They are trying to develop
computer-friendly grammar, like Panini, for other languages. All
languages have universal rules like all of them have nouns, pronouns,
verbs, adjectives etc. Effort is on to work out a Panini model for many
languages. Since Sanskrit is said to be the mother of many modern
Indian languages, scientists are trying to develop a mathematical and
computational grammar for them. These are “catchy ideas” in artificial
intelligence today, with pioneering work now being done in India, US and
Germany.
Interestingly, many scientists are tempted to speculate how Panini
developed his rules in so concise and precise a manner without a
computer in 3995 aphorisms in his Asbadhayayi.


And, not only in India, Sanskrit had its impact in many countries outside.
It became the language of the learned even in South-East Asia and to some
 extent in parts of Central Asia.Most interestingly, many of the ancient Sanskrit plays
that exist were found not in India but in Turfan on the edge of the Great Gobi desert in
China.

The highly articulate member of the Constituent Assembly,
Prof.Naziruddin Ahmad, regretted that we did not know with what great
veneration Sanskrit was regarded in the civilized world outside. He
quoted W.C.Taylor who said that Sanskrit was the language of unrivalled
richness and purity. Max Mueller had called Sanskrit “the greatest
language in the world, the most wonderful and the most perfect.”
According to Sir William Jones, “Sanskrit is of a wonderful structure,
more perfect than Greek, more copious than Latin, more exquisitely
refined than either.” Prof.Sahibdullah, world-renowned scholar of
Sanskrit, had said that Sanskrit was “the language of every man to
whatever race he may be long.”






Aryan-Dravidian Myth

Aryan-Dravidian is a myth: All Indians are culturally same!
The Dravidian movement was funded by Britishers to divide India and they made sure that Indians forget the orgin of the word Dravidian. Dravidian is not a Tamil or South Indian language word. Dravidian is a Sanskrit word and it was first proposed by Adi Sankara. In Varanasi Adi Sankara and Mandana Misra had a debate. The judge for the debate was Mandana Misra's wife Ubhaya Bharathi. Before starting the debate she will ask Adi Sankara Who are you? Adi Sankara will reply I am "Dravida Sishu". That is how the word Dravida originated/coined. Sishu means child Dravid is a sandhi of 2 words "iThra" + "Vith" essentially translated as the place were three courses meet (The place were 3 seas meet). So it is a regional term the Britishers made it into a racial term! And there is no word called Aryan in Sanskrit.. There is a word called Arya which means nobel but no Aryan.



The Four Varnas

After the advent of Islam we adopted only some of its customs but not any of its religious concepts. The Moghul influence was felt to some extent in our dress, music, architecture and painting. Even such impressions of the Muslim impact did not survive for long as independent factors but were dissolved in the flow of our Vedic culture. Also the Islamic impact was largely confined to the North; the South did not come much under it and stuck mostly to its own traditional path.

Later, with the coming of the Europeans, faith in the Vedic religion began to decline all over India, in North as well as South. How did this change occur? Why do all political leaders today keep excoriating the varna system, giving it the name of "casteism"? And how has the view gained ground everywhere that the division of jatis has greatly hindered the progress of the nation? And why does the mere mention of the word jati invite a gaol sentence?

I shall tell you later, as best I can, about who is responsible for this state of affairs. For the present let us try to find out why some people want to do away with varna dharma. To them it seems an iniquitous system in which some jatis occupy a high status while some others are pushed down to low depths. They want all to be raised to the same uniform high level.

Is such a step possible or practicable? To find an answer, all that we have to do is to examine conditions in countries where there is no caste. If there were no distinctions of high and low in these lands, we should see no class conflicts there. But in reality what do we see? People in these countries are divided into "advantaged" and disadvantaged" classes who are constantly fighting between themselves. A true understanding of our religion will show that in reality there are no differences in status based on caste among our people. But let us for argument's sake presume that there are; our duty then is to make sure that the feelings of differences are removed, not get rid of varna dharma itself.

One more point must be considered. Even if you concede that the social divisions have caused bitterness among the different sections here, what about the same in other countries? Can the existence of such ill-will in other lands be denied? The differences there, based on wealth and status, cause bitterness and resentment among the underprivileged and poorer sections. In America, it is claimed that all people have enough food, clothing and housing. They say that the Americans are contented people. But what is the reality there? The man who has only one car is envious of another who has two. Similarly, the fact that one person has a bank balance of a hundred million dollars is cause for heart-burning for another with a bank balance of only a million. Those who have sufficient means to live comfortably quarrel with people better off over rights and privileges. Does this not mean that even in a country like the United States there are conflicts between the higher and lower classes of society?

The story is not different in the communist countries. Though everyone is said to be paid the same wages there, they have officers and clerks who do not enjoy the same status. As a result of the order enforced by the state, there may not be any outward signs of quarrel among the different cadres, but jealously and feelings of rivalry must, all the same, exist in the hearts of people. In the higher echelons of power there must be greater rivalry in the communist lands than elsewhere. The dictator of today is replaced by another tomorrow. Is it possible to accord the same status to all in order to prevent the growth of antagonisms? Feeling of high and low will somehow persist, so too the competitive urge.

It seems to me that better than the distinctions prevailing in the West-distinctions that give rise to jealousies and social discord-are the differences mistakenly attributed to the hereditary of vocations. In the old days this arrangement ensured peace in the land with everyone living a contented life. There was neither envy nor hatred and everyone readily accepted his lot.

The different types of work are meant for the good of the people in general. It is wrong to believe that one job belongs to an "inferior" category and another to a "superior type". There is no more efficacious medicine for inner purity than doing one's work, whatever it be, without any desire for reward and doing it to perfection. I must add that even wrong notions about work(one job being better than another or worse) is better that the disparities and differences to be met with in other countries. We are[or were] free from the spirit of rivalry and bitterness that vitiate social life there.

Divided we have remained united, and nurtured our civilization. Other civilizations have gone under because the people of the countries concerned, though seemingly united, were in fact divided. In our case though there were differences in the matter of work there was unity of hearts and that is how our culture and civilization flourished. In other countries the fact that there were no distinctions based on vocations(anyone could do any work) itself gave rise to rivalries and eventually to disunity. They were not able to withstand the onslaught of other civilizations.

It is not practicable to make all people one, nor can everyone occupy the same high position. At the same time it is also unwise to keep people divided into classes that are like water-tight compartments.

The dharmasastras have shown us a middle way that avoids the pitfalls of the two extremes. I have come as a representative of this way and that is why I speak for it: that there ought to be distinctions among various sections of people in the performance of rites but there must be unity of hearts. There should be no confusion between the two.

Though we are divided outwardly in the matter of work, with unity of hearts there will be peace. That was the tradition for ages together in this land-there was oneness of hearts. If every member of society does his duty, does his work, unselfishly and with the conviction that he is doing it for the good of all, considerations of high and low will not enter his mind. If people carry out the duties common to them, however adverse the circumstances be, and if every individual performs the duties that are special to him, no one will have cause for suffering at any time.



Father of Botany - Sage Parasara

Father Of Botany - Sage Parasara

In the year 1665 AD, Robert Hook, a botanist with the help of his microscope, explained to the world about the Plant cell and its structure. One thousand and six hundred years ago prior to that date, sage Parasara in 1st century AD had clearly explained the structure of a Plant cell in the Sanskrit work "Vriksha Ayurveda".

Parasara had even explained the phenomenon of the Photosynthesis (process of self nourishment in the plants) in the fourth chapter (Vriksha sharira Dharma sastram) of the same book.

Who discovered Gravity?

1)

      (Surya Sidhantha 12th chapter 32 sloka)

Surya Sidhantha, the classical Indian Astronomical text says "because of the dharanatmika sakti, Earth is standing firm in the space without falling away

2) Varahamihira (6th century AD) had said "it is an experience of everyone that on any part of the earth, that the flames of the fire go up and the objects that were thrown up fall down

3) Bhaskaracharya (11th century AD), the famous Indian mathematician in his text "Leelavathi" explains, Earth has guruthvakarsna sakti (Gravitational force). Due to mutual attraction between the planets, they (planets) are able to hold themselves firmly in space.


4)
      (Siddhantha Shiromani, Bhuvanakosa, sixth sloka)

In his other text, "Siddhantha Shiromani," Bhaskaracharya reveals that, "Earth naturally attracts every object in the space towards itself. Because of this attracting force, all objects fall on the earth. When there is balance in attraction among planets where would they fall?

5)
      (Commentary of Adi Sankara for 3CH-8th sloka of Prasnopanishad)

Jagad Guru Sri Adi Sankara in his commentary on Prasno Upanishad had said, "as earth attracts the up going (thrown up) objects, so do the ever elevating, Pranasakti in the body, is being pulled down by the Apanasakti.


We had so many Newtons!!!! All above statements prove Gravitational force was quite common in India!!!!

Significance of Indian Cows

The milk of Bos Indicus i.e. Indian breed of cows has the desired health promoting properties due to presence of Beta Casein A2 protein. European breeds of Cows are classified as Bos Taurus. Their milk contains the protein Beta Casein Al, which produces beta-casomorphin7, which makes this milk diabetogenic relative to A2 milk. Medical researches have also linked Al milk with statistically higher incidence of Cardiac situations. In Australia, New Zealand, Korea Certified, A2 milk is already commanding the premium price of four times the price of non-certified A1A1-A1A2 milk.
