    Origins of Vedic Maths Vedic Maths tracks its origin to the Vedas which were ancient scripts (texts) for knowledge and wisdom. Primarily Atharavaveda which is one of the Vedas is known to have details of Vedic Maths origins.

    Vedic Maths was made more popular by Vedic Guru Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji in between 1911 - 1918. Sri Tirthaji constructed 16 Sutras and their sub sutras for fast and easy calculations. The simplicity of Vedic Maths systems was so profound that maths calculations can be carried out mentally with lighting speed. Difficult Mathematical problems can be solved in no time by Vedic Maths techniques. Amazing Power of Vedic Maths Let us take an example to show the Amazing Power of Vedic Maths over Normal calculation method. Take for an example of a complex calculation of Mathematics of doing multiplication of a 3 digit number with another 3 digit number First Number being 999 and second number being 998 Hence using normal method of multiplication of 999 X 998 could take anywhere between 2-3 minutes or more depending on how fast the person is calculating manually using normal steps However by Vedic Maths, we can calculate the same mentally in 3 seconds flat Let us see how to calculate in 3 seconds flat. One similarity with both these numbers is they are closer to number 1000. Hence 999 is 1 less than 100 & 998 is 2 less than 1000.

    Considering the numbers are less than 1000, we consider a minus (-) symbol next to the difference between both the numbers. Hence, mentally we think of 2 numbers (-2) and (-1) and then multiply them -2 X -1 = 2(Result) However considering these numbers are closer to 1000 and 1000 have 3 zero`s hence our first portion of result would be 002. This is right most portion of answer. Now Cross subtract either of the initial 2 numbers with the difference from 1000. Hence you can do either of the following mentally 999 - 2 = 997 or 998 - 1 = 997 This is left most portion of answer 997. Combining Left and Right portion of Answers, we get actual answer for the multiplication which is 997002. Considering both the numbers were closer to 1000 hence we take 1000 as base as we call this method BASE 1000 method. Now use the same technique to compute 994 X 996 in 3 seconds flat. You would find it amazing as the answer that we get is really fast and that to computing mentally. Squaring Numbers in 5 seconds Let us take another example for Squaring of 2 Digit numbers. This Vedic Maths Technique is applicable for numbers between 30 and 70.

    Let us see how we can square 52 in 3 seconds flat. We here take 50 as the base and 50 if Squared is 2500. Left Most Portion of Answer is 25(base 50 square) + 2(Difference of Number from 50, which is 52-50) = 25 +2 = 27 Right Most Portion of Answer is Square of the Difference (in this case 2 square) = 04 Hence the Answer is 2704. Same way for numbers which are less than 50, we subtract the difference from 25 instead of addition. Now practice calculating Square of Number 54 in 3 seconds mentally. You will find the method awesome as result is in few seconds and that too mentally. Benefits of Vedic Maths Vedic Maths once consistently used shows improved academic performance for the students. It increases mental agility as one is able to do lot of complex calculations mentally and get answers within seconds. Students practising Vedic Maths Techniques are able to get instant results as calculations are up to 15 times faster than the normal maths. It is really helpful in improving student`s confidence for normal maths school curriculum or for any entrance exams as students are able to do mental maths calculations at lightning speed via Vedic Maths Techniques.

    Vedic Maths sharpens Students mind and intelligence by regular practise as it keeps students brain in active mode. Vedic Maths Reach Vedic Maths is not only beneficial for Addition, subtraction, Multiplication, Division problems but also helpful in solving complex mathematical equations problems. In this competitive world where every Sec counts during time of exams, Vedic Maths enlightens us to take the Journey of Mathematical knowledge with much more confidence. Let us embrace ourselves as students to improve ourselves in learning and practising a true Indian Vedic system called Vedic Maths. ~Gaurav

    Why was it that we Indians, always look at what is wrong with India and never appreciate what is great about our country? As a nation, we have survived the test of time. Even though we are still a growing economy, we are not a failed nation. In the past, our country had achieved the peak of success for thousands of years. How many nations can boast of such a heritage?

    It is proved that modern-day discoveries, inventions, theories, concepts are broadly based on Vedic knowledge/literature. Many scientists have studied Vedic literature to get in-depth insights into scientific, spiritual, psychological, behavioural knowledge.

    The ancient Gurukul education system was honoured worldwide owing to its multi-dimensional, life and scientific management approach, various skills and knowledge imparted since childhood.

    Developing leadership qualities, Management principles and concepts, teamwork, problem-solving techniques with ease and calm mind, understanding mind and its complexity, sharpens intellect and memory, seeing and managing ego, understanding soul spiritually and by scientific means, research and development, environment management were all part of Vedic education system apart from science, mathematics, social science, grammar in our ancient Gurukul system.

    Then what went wrong that we went away from our Vedic culture and Gurukul education system?

    Universities like Takshshila and Nalanda were considered topmost universities in the world, today our universities are not even in top 200 universities worldwide. When we had gained higher position globally i.e. socially, economically and spiritually owing to our virtues, Vedic knowledge, complacency and careless attitude cost us dearly, our enemies were conspiring to destroy us, first Mughals and then the Britishers. Mughals had started setting narrative against our great culture as they wanted to capture our territories to exploit the economic resources and for the religious conversion of the people and they succeeded to some extend by creating rift on caste basis, coercion, loot…

    Later on, Britishers came, they realized that to get control for a longer time, they need to destroy the culture and education system. They appointed Max Muller and Thomas Macaulay to make this happen, it actually did happen as they planned.

    Max Muller, perhaps the most well known early Indologist and Sanskritist, was the one who tried to set narrative against Vedas and great Indian culture as desired by the British government. He and other Indologists wanted to control and convert the followers of Vedic culture, therefore they widely propagated that the Vedas were simply mythology. They intentionally misinterpreted Sanskrit texts to make the Vedas look primitive and they systematically tried to make Indians ashamed of their own culture. Aryan invasion theory was one such creation of fake history by these Indologists. Thus the actions of these Indologists seems to indicate that they were motivated by a racial race. Although later in life, Max Muller glorified the Vedas. He admitted the purely speculative nature of his Vedic chronology, and in his last work published shortly before his death, “The six systems of Indian Philosophy”, he wrote, “whatever be the date of Vedic hymns whether 1500 or 15000 B.C.E., they have their own unique place and stand by themselves in the literature of the world.”

    Thomas Macaulay, who introduced English education in India wanted to make the Indians into a race that was, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinion, in morals, and in intellect.

    However, if we study our great literature, we come to know what we have lost as generations, mentioning a few facts…

    Acharya Chanakya, political thinker, he was the first to visualise the concept of a ‘nation’ for the first time in human history. During his time, India was split into various kingdoms. He brought them all together under one central governance, thus creating a nation called ‘Aryavartha’, which later became India. He documented his lifelong work in his book Kautilya’s Arthashastra and Chanakya Niti. For ages, rulers across the world have referred to the Arthashastra for building a nation on sound economics, based on spiritual values.

    Management has been recognised as a science since the 1950s. One of the fathers of modern management is Peter Drucker. But didn’t ‘management’ exist in India even before the 1950s and the Drucker era? As a nation, we have over 5000 years to our credit. Did we not have management scientists in our country before the 20th century? In the ancient Indian scriptures — Ramayana, Mahabharata, the various Upanishads — we found brilliant discussions of management strategies.

    Acharya Chanakya’s management philosophies/principles were used to make modern principles and are being used worldwide.

    The Vedic literature contains descriptions of advanced scientific techniques, sometimes even more sophisticated than those used in our modern technological world.

    Modern metallurgists have not been able to produce iron of comparable quality to the 22 foot high Iron Pillar of Delhi, which is the largest hand forged block of iron from antiquity.

    Vedic cosmology, astrology, space research, planets and galaxies, medicinal science and surgery, nuclear theory, thermodynamics, energy concepts, environment management and many discoveries and innovations are part of Vedic literature.

    We as Indians suffered a heavy loss economically, socially and spiritually owing to ignorance of our great Vedic literature. It is time to put our focus back on Vedic knowledge so that our youngsters grow on all fronts especially research and development, skills and knowledge building to make India great again and lead the world with balanced growth.

    Whatever I said above is a material knowledge of the Vedic literature. The Vedas, however, has Spiritual knowledge and more superior realized knowledge of saints as well.
