The Vedas have guided Indian civilization for thousands of years. They are the pillars of Hinduism. "Veda
is the source of all Dharma" declares Manusmirti (2.6.) There is no major religion on the planet, which
has not been influenced by the Vedas. The creation stories of all major religions are based on Vedas.
Though all other religions have forgotten their Vedic root or have been forgotten, there is one religion,
Hinduism, that has kept the flame of the Vedic wisdom burning continuously. Vedas which means '
knowledge' contain a good deal of scientific knowledge that was lost over millennia, which needs to be
recovered. The Vedic sages had discovered the subtle nature of reality, and had coded it in the form of
According to Raja Ram Mohan Roy, author of Vedic Physics, "The knowledge contained in the Vedas is
very abstruse, and is well beyond the comprehension of ordinary human beings. Therefore Vedic sages
coded the knowledge in a simple form in which it could be understood by everyone. The Rig Veda itself
testifies that it has a hidden meaning in verse 4.3.16. Sage Bharata in his Natyasastra 2.23 refers to the
sages who knew the hidden meaning of the Vedas. This coding of knowledge proved to be very
successful in disseminating the knowledge to common folks. This would also explain why extraordinary
steps were taken to preserve the Vedas, and the honor given to the Vedas by Hindus, even though its
meaning is little understood today. "On the eve of the "Mahabharata War" our ancestors believed that
their knowledge was in danger of being lost. They could have written it down, but writings could be
destroyed. Therefore, it was memorized and passed on orally. Today, the Avesta, religious scripture of
ancient Iranians, only a fraction of it is available. Alexander captured Iran in 326 B.C. and after a bloody
war, destroyed each copy of the Avesta available."
Author Dick Teresi says "Indian cosmologists, the first to estimate the age of the earth at more than 4
billion years. They came closest to modern ideas of atomism, quantum physics, and other current
theories. India developed very early, enduring atomist theories of matter. Possibly Greek atomistic
thought was influenced by India, via the Persian civilization."

Rediscovering Vedic Science
Legend of Vikramaditya
" Besides the discoverers of geometry and algebra, the constructors of human speech, the parents of
philosophy, the primal expounders of religion, the adepts in psychological and physical science, how
even the greatest of our biological and theologians seem dwarfed! Name of us any modern discovery,
and we venture to say that Indian history need not long be searched before the prototype will be found on
record. Here we are with the transit of science half accomplished, and all our Vedic ideas in process of
readjustment to the theories of force correlation, natural selection, atomic polarity and evolution. And
here, to mock our conceit, our apprehension, and our despair, we may read whatManu said, perhaps
10,000 years before the birth of Christ:
of Bengal and sometime Legal Member of the Government of India. He
served with competence for eighteen years and in 1915 officiated as Chief
Justice. He has said:
"Ages before Lamarck and Darwin it was held in India that man has passed
through 84 lakhs (8,400,000) of birth as plants, animals, as an "inferior
species of man" and then as the ancestor of the developed type existing
to-day. The theory was not, like modern doctrine of evolution, based
wholly on observation and a scientific enquiry into fact but was a
rather (as some other matters) an act of brilliant intuition in which observation may also have had
"To the philosophers of India, however, Relativity is no new discovery, just as the concept of light
years is no matter for astonishment to people used to thinking of time in millions of kalpas, (A
kalpa is about 4,320,000 years). The fact that the wise men of India have not been concerned with
technological applications of this knowledge arises from the circumstance that technology is but
one of innumerable ways of applying it."
It is, indeed, a remarkable circumstance that when Western civilization discovers Relativity it applies it to the manufacture of atom-bombs, whereas Oriental civilization applies it to the development of new states of consciousness."
"he falls back upon the earliest and greatest of Revelations, those of the Sacred Books of India with a Cosmogony which no European conception has ever surpassed."
