    Jain : Vedic Mathematics ( brilliant !)

    Post  mudra on Sun Jun 20, 2010 1:56 pm

    Teacher and author of 12 fascinating books, beautifully hand-written in calligraphy, and 8 unique dvds; Jain has always been drawn to the spiritual and mystical. His work with Rapid Mental Calculation or Vedic Mathematics, a 2,500 year old Indian system of Mental Arithmetic... empowers students to perform mental calculations, in many cases quicker than a calculator.
    This is an alternative approach to Mathematics encouraging students to perform mental calculations based on 16 Sutras or Universal Formulae. With practice it eliminates the dependence on the electronic calculator, instilling confidence and memory skills in the process. Often very poor maths students find they can excel with this visually-based system.

    for NEXUS MAGAZINE Aug 2003:

    (This was first published in my book THE MAGIC OF NINE)

    Some questions to ponder upon:

    • How could the Aryan civilization, near the Hunza Valley, 3,000 years
    ago, mentally compute mathematical operations that today only a
    calculator could achieve?
    • And if the mathematics could not be done mentally, how could they do everything we know today, IN ONE-LINE? eg: converting the fraction 1/19 into a decimal is an 18 digit answer that requires 35
    lines of exhausting long division, how could they do it in a one simple
    line solution?
    • Why is NASA secretly using this MENTAL, ONE-LINE SYSTEM OF ARITHMETIC in the field of Advanced Artificial Intelligence? and not incorporating it into our current mathematics curriculum?
    • Why are many of Bill Gate's Mathematicians Indians?
    • Is the decimal form of Pi (3.141592) a sonic code for dedications to Krishna?
    • What does the Bhagavad Gita have to say about this lost science of Clairvoyant Calculation that the ancient Temple Builders employed?
    • How can you become a Human Bio-Calculator?
    • Is the current Western Mathematics Curriculum keeping our Children in a state of limited intelligence?

    The answers to all these questions are found by
    understanding the ancient system of Vedic Mathematics
    as rediscovered by Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960),
    of Puri Govardhan Math, dux of India in Mathematics
    and a Sanskrit Philosopher who wrote and spoke perfect
    English, he reached the position of a Shankacharya (the
    spiritual head of India 100 years ago, like a Dalai Lama
    or Vatican Pope), renunciated several high official
    positions in society to retreat into a forest for 7 years
    as a yogi, between 1911 and 1918 in which time he
    collected all the lost mathematical knowledge (Ganita
    Sutras), improved and reconstructed them to 16 basic
    Sutras or word formulae that solve every known
    mathematical problem. These 16 Volumes relating to
    the 16 Sutras was our legacy from the ancient past.

    What is life?
    It is the flash of a firefly in the night, the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
