Connection between Primordial Prakriti and Plasma

Reviewing several mantras is necessary to grasp a specific scientific idea hidden in the Vedas. For example. The Hiranya Garbha Suktam adds a level of detail to an essential concept in the Nasadiya Suktam. Firstly, the Nasadiya Suktam suggests that the Devas may have appeared during the diversity phase in creation. Secondly, the Suktam leaves us with a question regarding the cosmic mind. The Hiranyagarbha Suktam picks up this thread. In summary, the Nasadiya Suktam does not name the conscious entity that witnessed the birth of the universe. However, we find its name in the Hiranyagarbha Suktam. Nasadiya Suktam introduces the Mahabhuta elements, the primordial brightness. Elsewhere we find details about their individual nature. The following video presents a sequence of events per Inflation cosmology. It provides a context to the birth of Devas. Per science, matter as we know it to be, appeared in our universe when CMB filled it. However, even after that, the universe remained in total

Leafness of a Leaf per Yajur Veda

While researching for my book “Beyond Space and Beyond Matter”, I came across the approach of understanding words from constituent letters. Each letter in Sanskrit has a meaning. I hadn’t paid much attention to this fact until Sri Sri Ravishankar, my Guru, mentioned it to me. Every letter from the Devanagari letter “ka” is a representation of the 33 devas of the Vedic tradition. The letter “ka” represents prajapati, the creator. Similarly Sankhya texts map each of these consonants to a principle in creation. In another convention, the Maruts who are the helpers of Indra rule Forty Nine letters. Maruts are a group of seven Devas. Each group has seven of them. Tantra texts group letters of the Sanskrit language. Secondly, there are fifty one letters in the Devanagari method of writing in Sanskrit. Matrikas, who are helpers of the mother divine, rule over these seven groups. In summary, many approaches were known in the distant past to understand the power behind letters.

How the Panchang had to be whacked back into shape…

Tiruvallur, a town near Chennai, Tamil Nadu was a center of Panchang makers and likely Astronomy in the past. Many do not know why and what the Panchang makers rectified in the recent. Let us explore both these. European sailing expeditions in the fifteenth and the sixteenth centuries faced severe impediments because of poor nautical maps. Therefore, the Spanish, Dutch, French and British kings offered huge prize money for anyone who could produce reliable navigational charts. Consequently, a few Jesuits scholars traveled to India to study the Hindu Panchang system. They had heard of the use of ready made tables in the subcontinent to produce accurate calendars. Besides these tables were based on local “longitudes”. The longitude basis of these tables was of value to the Jesuits. The information which the Jesuits gathered was valuable to European astronomers. For example. the Famous astronomer Cassini consulted the famous Siam Table.  Some other astronomers used tables from Krishnapuram and Tiruvallur tables. These three

Gandharvas, Schumann Resonance and Brain Rhythms

Popular Hindu literature describes Gandharvas as semi-divine beings. It depicts them with musical instruments. Coincidentally, the Upa-Veda (subsidiary Veda) text for the classical Indian music is the Gandharva Veda. In principle, Gandharvas, like the Devatas (divine beings), are not physical entities. A Gandharva is a vibratory energy which is responsible for a certain phenomenon in existence. Specifically, Gandharvas are behind the phenomenon of resonance. The Gandharva principle is behind any peak sensual experience in the human nervous system. Similarly, Gandharvas are known in popular stories as amorous. Stories in the Vedas connect Gandharvas with Soma. Soma is a Devata who is closely associated with exhilaration in the human psyche. Though lacking a physical body, a Gandharva, for example, can enjoy the thrill within the nervous system of stage a performer. Young people aspire for the thrill of being a rock star. Without a doubt, enthralling a large audience is a talent. However, not every talented singer or a performing artist

What does Brahma have to do with Collapsing Quantum Systems?

Does Brahma dream the universe? If Creation exists only within the mind of Brahma, can it not dissolve like a dream? Is this similar to a collapsing quantum system? Let us review these two ideas. The popular idea among scientists is that human intelligence is an accident. A certain biological evolution created the power of thinking in the human brain. Consequently, everything in nature and in the cosmos is like a machine. Machines work on one principle, namely, the cause-and-effect principle. However,  Sir James Jeans, made a striking discovery. He says that the discoveries in Physics suggest the universe to be less of a machine and more of a great thought. The core elements of mechanical philosophy began in the Cartesian era, in the late 16th century. The idea that “I exist because I think” is slowing waning. Consequently, the older idea of the mind being the creator and the governor of the realm of matter is reviving. Sanskrit literature celebrates

Superconductivity & Mysticism

The idea of everlasting anything sounds incredible. When Superconductivity was proposed in the sixties even scientists were skeptical. Then they agreed that electric current could flow for long periods (10,000 years) at super low temperatures – zero degrees Kelvin. Semiconductor physicists started designing new material which exhibited superconductivity at temperatures a little higher than that. They found immediate application in medical equipment such as the MRI. A few years ago came the discovery that light can trigger superconductivity. It seemed that light was impacting the crystalline structure of a material. This week scientists have reported in the journal of Physical Review letters an even more interesting discovery. Superconductivity appears in a material even before its lattice structure changes and at temperatures close to normal. Quantum phenomena have been accepted in the scientific community for a while but the possibility of them happening closer to the human body temperature had been left to the domain of the mystical. Scientists from Max

A piece of Zirconium – Beginning of Life on Earth

A Zirconium crystal can tell its own age. One such crystal specimen from Australia gives a puzzling picture of when water arrived on Earth. This challenges assumptions about life on earth. During formation, a Zirconium crystal accumulates less on more Titanium atoms based on the temperature. Firstly, geo-chemists recently discovered a piece of Zirconium, almost as old as planet Earth. This crystal was inside a hard rock in hilly western Australia. Secondly. Geologists say that the planet earth formed about 4.5-4.6 billion years ago. Geochemists Watson and Thomson say that the above crystal formed at temperatures around 680 degrees Celsius. They assert this based on the amount of titanium in the crystal. Secondly, there is one more interesting factor. These crystals can form only in the presence of water. Therefore, the discovery of the zirconium specimen is exciting. Earth had surface water right from the beginning! Surface Water and Asteroids All scientists consider surface water a good sign of life.
