Vedas teach us Math

I was lucky to stumble upon this link which describes some astonishing facts about what the slokas (poems in Sanskrit) tell us. This article changed the way I look at vedic verses and other slokas. As young Brahmacharis, when we did the veda patanam during the Avaniavittam(Sacred Thread changing ceremony), we use to laugh at the verses which produce wierd sounds...but now I realize that those are the representation of our number system.

Our ancesters would have done lot of research to come up with such things and they did document it very well, but I feel over the period of time, we lost the skill required to comprehend and use them in our lives.

There are lot of questions that are coming to my mind now.

In our Vedas...
Did we have the knowledge of Nuclear Science already?
Did we have the precise steps to launch a rocket in space?
Do we have the exact procedures to predict Earthquakes?

More questions than answers...

Please visit the link Nuggets from Vedic Mantras and get surprised.
