It Takes Math
BY: MAYESA DASA (ACBSP)
Here is a video for readers, it should be of interest to devotees of Vedic knowledge.
In the matter of deciphering the information of the 5th canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, I undertook the challenge of searching for a meaning in the texts not subject to speculation. This led to 10 years of 7 day weeks, 365 days a year of intensive research in every work I could find. I also had to learn mathematics and begin testing formulas which might expose a definite meaning.
This type of research is not for the squeamish. There is no sacred cow that cannot be touched in such research.
My guiding principles were 2:
1) My spiritual master said that the distances to the planets are revealed in Srimad Bhagavatam
2) Sukadeva Gosvami's words contain these distances
After two years I had a breakthrough. I was able to understand and diagram the movement of the sun. It took more years to get a comprehensive picture of the solar system.
I present it to you.
