Math is fun and enjoyment with Vedic math

One of my friends introduced me to Vedic math in 1993 when I was in school. As he was elder than me, he was certain that it is helpful, as it had helped him during his school days. Since my school days, I am in love with Vedic math. It has helped me during my school and until now. Recently, one of my friends discussed with me challenges of kids at school. One of the major challenges was math. While discussing, I realized that Vedic math is a solution to their challenges. What is Vedic math?             Vedic math is a very different way of doing math. This method is simpler and easier than prevalent methods. It is much faster and more suitable for mental math. Vedic math mainly cover algebra and arithmetic. Vedic arithmetic is developed on algebraic principles. Naturally, it is applicable in coordinate geometry and matrices. This method has many advantages. One of the advantages is that you do not need to learn algebra separately as it is just an extension of what you already a

OM mantra chant, the Sound of universe and Ganapati atharvashirsha

        Ganapatiatharvashirsha is about lord Ganesh. It is a part of Atharveveda. Time frame of Atharvaveda is around 1500BC to 500 BC. Gana means group and esha means lord. Ganesh means lord of groups. There are various groups mentioned in Ganapatiatharvashirsha that are owned by lord Ganesh. The groups include ‘Tridevas’ (Bramha, Vishnu and Mahesh), ‘Panchamahabhutas’, expressions of self (Ananda, Bramha(Sat), Chit), Shakti (creation, prevention and destruction), Kala(past, present, future), Guna (Satwa, raja, tama), directions, deha, Varnas (letters), speech, and so on. Om is also a representation of lord Ganesh. Om is a verbal representation of the god. It is ‘Sagun’ (with qualities) but Nirakar (formless) representation of god.         NASA released audio form of sound of universe few years back. Plasma waves were converted into human audible waves. You may hear these sounds here .         If you know the sound of OM, you might realize that the sound of universe is ve

The milk of our second mother, Indian cow or ‘Gomatha’ (Most liked Post)

        In one of my posts ( How cow is our mother can bull be our father ), I explained why cow is called ‘Gomatha’ or mother cow in Indian culture. Along with calling mother (as we have milk of the cow), it is also important to understand why only Indian cow milk and not any other cow milk.         Recently I came across an idea of A1 and A2 type of milk. Milk generally has three parts: Fats, Whey and milk solids. The milk solid part is composed of many different proteins, which have their own names, lactose, and other sugars. We are interested in protein part of the solid. One of these proteins is called casein, of which there are many different types, but the one casein we are interested is the predominant protein called beta- casein .  In fact, there is only one difference between A1 & A2 milk. The difference in A1 and A2 beta-casein is the amino acid histidine rather than proline at position 67. The issues relate to a peptide called beta-casomorphin-7 (BCM7). This pep

Organic Terrace Vegetable Garden for your daily needs

We have been working on a terrace garden for a while now. Most of the efforts to grow the garden are of my wife. We came up with an idea to have all essential vegetables in our terrace and we started working on it. Last time I had put pictures of cherry tomatoes from our terrace garden. After that we started working on essentials and now we have most of it. We have curry leaves, mint, lemon grass, coriander, chilies and ginger. We also have eggplant and arum in addition. The best part is they are organic and readily available when we need. They keep environment green and fresh. Most of them are equivalent to any decorative plant. This includes lemon grass, chilies, mint and ginger. Below pictures shall make it clear to you. In japan many people grow rice in terraces and if not rice we shall at least grow vegetables. I encourage all of you to build your own terrace vegetable garden as per your likes and wishes. Kindly make sure it is organic. Growing plants teach us
