Mathematics of Lord Brahma

Alike Vedas which is the primary source of Vedic Mathematics, mathematics is also extensively used in Indian Mythology. I have picked up a very interesting story related to the creator of universe, Lord Bramah. The story is narrated in the word of the original author -

“In the great temple at Benares, beneath the dome which marks the center of the world, rests a brass plate in which are fixed three diamond needles, each a cubit high and as thick as the body of a bee. On one of these needles, at the creation, God placed sixty-four disks of pure gold, the largest disk resting on the brass plate, and the others getting smaller and smaller up to the top one. This is the Tower of Bramah.

Day and night unceasingly the priests transfer the disks from one diamond needle to another according to the fixed and immutable laws of Bramah, which require that the priest on duty must not move more than one disk at a time and that he must place this disk on a needle so that there is no smaller disk beneath it. When the sixty-four disks shall have been thus transferred from the needle on which at the creation God placed them to one of the other needles, tower, temple, and Brahmins alike will crumble into dust, and with a thunderclap the world will vanish.”

The above tower will look something similar to the figure shown below

Now friends it’s up to you to find out the time which the priests will take to complete the task.

By the way this world’s end prophecy is one of the most optimistic on record!
