Calculation of Speed of light - Advance Scientific Foreknowledge in Sanatana Dharma



Value of speed of light (C)

● Without knowing Value speed of Light Astronomical Calculations are impossible.

● Theory of Relativity E=MC^2 is again requires value of speed of light (C)

● This velocity of Light (C) was calculated by Maxwell in the 19th century.

● But its was actually determined accurately thousands of years before in the Rig Veda.

● It was further elaborated by Sayana in the 14th century AD in his commentaries on Rig Veda.

● Hindus  have always calculated accurately the motion of planets, sunset, sunrise, eclipses, etc. without using telescopes or any other machinery.

● It is to be noted that Bhatta Bhaskara (probably from the 10th century) made the same statement in his commentary on Taittiriya Brahmana, another Hindu Veda. He says this to be an old tradition.

● The fourth verse of the Rigvedic hymn 1:50 (50th hymn in book 1 of rigveda) is as follows:

||तरणिर्विश्वदर्शतो जयोतिष्क्र्दसि सूर्य |
विश्वमा भासिरोचनम ||

|| taranirviśvadarśato jyotishkridasi sūrya |
viśvamā bhāsirocanam ||

● This means “Swift and all beautiful art thou, O Surya (Sun), maker of the light, illuminating all the radiant realm.”

● Explaining this verse in his Rig Veda commentary, Sayana, who was a minister in the court of Bukka of the great Vijayanagara Empire of Karnataka in South India (in early 14th century), says:

||tatha ca smaryate yojananam. sahasre dve dve sate dve ca yojane||
||ekena nimishardhena kramaman||.

Meaning

This means “It is remembered here that Sun (light) traverses 2,202 yojanas in half a nimisha.”

Note: Nimisharda = half of a nimisha
In the vedas Yojana is a unit of distance and Nimisha is a unit of time.

Unit of Vedic Time: Nimisha

The Moksha Dharma Parva of Shanti Parva in Mahabharata describes Nimisha as follows:

15 Nimisha = 1 Kastha
30 Kashta = 1 Kala
30.3 Kala = 1 Muhurta
30 Muhurtas = 1 Diva-Ratri (Day-Night)
We know Day-Night is 24 hours
So we get 24 hours = 30 x 30.3 x 30 x 15 nimisha
in other words 409050 nimisha
We know 1 hour = 60 x 60 = 3600 seconds
So 24 hours = 24 x 3600 seconds = 409,050 nimisha
409,050 nimisha = 86,400 seconds
1 nimisha = 0.2112 seconds (This is a recursive decimal. The wink of an eye is equal to 0.2112 seconds.)
1/2 nimisha = 0.1056 seconds

Unit of Vedic Distance: Yojana

● Yojana is defined in Chapter 6 of Book 1 of the ancient vedic text “Vishnu Purana” as follows:

● 10 ParamAnus = 1 Parasúkshma
● 10 Parasúkshmas = 1 Trasarenu
● 10 Trasarenus = 1 Mahírajas (particle of dust)
● 10 Mahírajas= 1 Bálágra (hair’s point)
● 10 Bálágra = 1 Likhsha
● 10 Likhsha= 1 Yuka
● 10 Yukas = 1 Yavodara (heart of barley)
● 10 Yavodaras = 1 Yava (barley grain of middle size)
● 10 Yava = 1 Angula (1.89 cm or approx 3/4 inch)
● 6 fingers = 1 Pada (the breadth of it)
● 2 Padas = 1 Vitasti (span)
● 2 Vitasti = 1 Hasta (cubit)
● 4 Hastas = a Dhanu, a Danda, or pauruSa (a man’s height), or 2 Nárikás = 6 feet
● 2,000 Dhanus = 1 Gavyuti (distance to which a cow’s call or lowing can be heard) = 12,000 feet
● 4 Gavyutis = 1 Yojana = 9.09 miles

Calculation of the Speed of Light from the Rig Veda:

● So now we can calculate what is the value of the speed of light in modern units based on the value given as 2202 yojanas in 1/2 nimisha

= 2,202 x 9.09 miles per 0.1056 seconds
= 20,016.18 miles per 0.1056 seconds
= 189,547 miles per second

● As per the Rig Veda the speed of light is C = 189,547 miles per second.

● Almost equal to the Modern Calculation which say 186,000 miles per second.

NOTE :- WE DOESN'T HAD ANY MODERN EQUIPMENT OR TELESCOPE OR ANYTHING WHEN RIGVEDA WAS WRITTEN BY OUR RISHIS AND SAINTS

BUT THEY CALCULATED ALMOST ACCURATELY

THIS IS BECAUSE VEDAS ARE WORDS OF GOD

GOD IS THE GREATEST SCIENTISTS OF ALL

A TRUE RELIGION AND TRUE SCIENCE NEVER CONTRADICTS EACH OTHER

PROUD TO BE HINDU
