Origin of Vedic Mathematics

Origin of Vedic Maths or Vedic Ganit

At the beginning of the twentieth century, when there was a great interest in the Sanskrit texts in Europe, Bharati Krsna Swamiji tells us some scholars ridiculed certain texts which were headed ‘Ganita Sutras’- which means mathematics. They could find no mathematics in the translation and dismissed the texts as rubbish. Bharati Krsna Swamiji, who was himself a scholar of Sanskrit, Mathematics, History and Philosophy, studied these texts and after lengthy and careful investigation was able to reconstruct the mathematics of the Vedas. According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae.

Bharati Krsna wrote sixteen volumes expounding the Vedic system, which you can find in the book named Vedic Mathematics by Bharati Krsna Tirthaji. These sutras were unaccountably lost and when the loss was confirmed in his final years he wrote a single book: Vedic Mathematics, currently available. It was published in 1965, five years after his death. The term Vedic Mathematics now refers to a set of sixteen mathematical formulae or sutras and their corollaries derived from the Vedas.

  1. its very nice . i like your article to read . your article have very simple words that are very comfortable to understand

  2. Nice info. Thanks!
    I found an online Vedic Mathematics course for teachers by Gaurav Tekriwal, founder President of The Vedic Maths Forum India.
    This course has its focus on creating more value to teacher’s current skill set by adding more knowledge about ancient methods of calculation. Vedic Maths not only improving the calculation speed but will add more horizon and will fetch more opportunities for the teachers to teach in some coaching Institutes that will equip the students appearing for competitive exams.
    Bonus- The learner will get a lifetime Certification to be presented in the resume along with the 8DVD set so that he can learn offline at his own ease which would also include test papers for self practice.
    I shall enroll in this course once my finances get ok..DVDs please me as a help.
