Was the SS a creation of rakshasas and when was it created?
Since the SS is said to have been revealed in the fag end of Krita-yuga i.e. Satya-yuga, whichis followed by Tretayuga, if at all we presume that it has been written by some real MayaaMaha-asura, we will have to zero in on the Mayaa, the father-in-law of the Rakshasa kingRavana! Why?Because, Bhagwan Ram, as per the Valmiki Ramayana, who was a contemporary of Ravana,is supposed to have Incarnated in Treta-yuga.We have therefore to zero on the date of SS creation in late Satya-yuga!As per the same SS, Shlokas 15 to 20 of Adyaya one, Dwapara-yuga plus two sandhis i.e. itsdawn and twilight have a total span of 864,000 solar years. Similarly, Treta-yuga plus twosandhis have a total span of 1,296,000 solar years. Even if we ignore the 5112 years of socalled Kaliyuga which are supposed to have elapsed as per the same SS till date, it meansthat the SS was revealed to Mayaa the demon 1,296,000 plus 864,000 years = 2,160,000years ago!That is a large number of years---more than two million i.e. twenty lakhs of years prior to thecurrent twenty-first century AD!“
Mayaa” is the greatest liar, and as such can neither be a Rishi nor a Hindu!
Hindus call the SS as "Shri Surya Siddhanta" and it is also known as aarsha-grantha i.e. awork by some Rishi!Myth and astronomy are poles apart. So are archaeology and myth!By now it is an open secret that leave alone twenty-lakh years, we do not have anyworthwhile records of even one tenth of that duration i.e. two lakh years!Nay even of the period of about 5000 BC except for pyramids of Egypt!Then again, “Our species,
originated in Africa around 200,000 BC. Writtenlanguage dates back only to about 7000 BC.” Hawking –
The Grand Design
(Bantam) page17.Does it mean that the great demon Mayaa got his Surya Siddhanta millions of years back even before the species
themselves evolved?Well, I know that except for some "extra-ordinary scholar-monks" and "Vedic astrologers",nobody is such a nitwit to believe such a lie!Obviously, such a lie can be manufactured only by a crafty rakshasha---a maha-asura and notby some Rishi!
Thus to call such an absurd work as the Surya Siddhanta as "Shri Surya Siddhanta" and attribute it to some Rishis is a great insult to the real Rishis!
The “Jyotisha Upanishat” beats hollow all the Vedas and Upanishadas in antiquity!
Mayaa the great demon, as per the same SS, is supposed to have got jyotishopnishat-adyayaof the same SS also from Surya Bhagwan Himself. As such, some “extraordinary scholars”claim the SS to be a jyotisha-upanishat!What is surprising is that no scholar has till date been able to fix the date of the Rigveda ---the earliest Veda---prior to about 5000 BCE!That is hardly seven thousand years back!Even if we go by B.G. Tilak’s estimate, the Rigveda is not older than 10000 BCE in any caseby any stretch of imagination!And if we compare two million years with 12000 years, we are left with a staggering deficitof about two million years!
