Book: Simplified Vedic Math is live

Mathematics is a tricky subject. Those who love, enjoy it much and those who don’t, feel it’s boring. I have been taking Vedic Math programmes for last 6 years. One of the requests my pupils ask is short summary of Vedic Math techniques. So finally, I decided to come up with a short and simple book on easy Vedic Math techniques.             This book does not cover everything in Vedic Math and this is just the trailer or feeler! You may read my other books to learn more aspects of Vedic Math. In this book, we will learn simple techniques of 4 basic methods in arithmetic i.e. Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. I am confident that this is fun and joyful journey to all the readers. I wish you all the best in this journey.             Print copy of this book is available on  Amazon  and  Instamojo . Digital copy is available on Scribd and Google Play.

Book: Vedic and Creative Math for Class 7 is Live

Mathematics is a tricky subject. Those who love, enjoy it much and those who don’t, feel it’s boring. I lost interest in mathematics while in 7 th class. Based on what I remember, it was mainly due to lack of understanding of negative numbers. By nature, I am kinaesthetic person and therefore I refuse to accept anything unless understood thoroughly. Generally, just memorization doesn’t work for me and the same thing happened about multiplication of negative numbers. Our teacher presented them as rules and I refused to accept them at face value. One year later my cousin grandfather started living with us and he had great interest in teaching. Moreover, his concepts in mathematics were extremely clear and he could answer all my crazy questions. This retriggered my interest in mathematics. The whole journey was so joyful that I wish everyone gets a grandfather like him who is at home to help with fundamental questions in studies. Later, when I was in 9 th I was introduced to Ved

Successful identification of underground water source

I generally stay away from publishing my success stories and this is because every case is unique. This one is very different and important. Long ago, when I was in college, I used to visit a spiritual personality out of curiosity. During one of his visits he taught me a method to identify underground water sources. I very rarely used this method. Few years ago, my uncle wanted to dig a well and so I suggested him a place for digging a well. He started digging a well but due to some reason he couldn’t complete it. Last year my cousin reached out to me for the same reason and when I analyzed same place once again, underground water map was totally changed. Finally, we identified a spot with enough water.          As a natural next step digging of the well started and after 15 meters, they found a small water stream. On further digging they could find 2 more bigger streams of water and now the well has more than 16 feet of water level even in summer. It took more than 3 hours to em

Which is most important element out of 5 elements and why?

In last post we learnt how to do a Yadnya without a Purohit or a priest. Importance of Yadnya is undebatable and fire is a key in Yadnya. As you might know we consider 5 elements. Prithvi or earth, Aap or water, Teja or a form of energy and heat, Vayu or form of air. Finally, Aakash or atmosphere. The very first Rhucha or stanza of Rhugveda refers to fire. ॐ अग्निमीळे पुरोहितं यज्ञस्यदेवमृत्विजम् । होतारं रत्नधातमम् ॥१॥ Om Agnim-Iille Purohitam Yajnyasya Devam-Rtvijam | Hotaaram Ratna-Dhaatamam ||1|| Meaning: 1.1: Om, I praise Agni who is the Purohita (Priest) of the Yagya (Sacrifice) (Priest leading the Sacrifice), (as well as) its Ritvij (Priest performing Sacrifice at proper times); the Yagya which is directed towards the Devas, 1.2: Who is (also) the Hotara (Priest invoking the Gods) and the bestower of Ratna (Wealth of physical, mental and spiritual plane). It says Agni Meele Purohitm and You might wonder about what is special about Agni or fire. Agni suggests a

Our culture wants us to preserve this for coming generations!

Just last month I visited our native place and I recollected my childhood because of the things that I saw there. Most of the things are now outdated and our coming generations may not even get to know about them unless we preserve them proudly. We want to take care and preserve all the items mentioned below for coming generations and this blog is just in remembrance of our childhood. I am showcasing a picture below and offering a brief description for those who aren’t aware of the gadgets in the picture. I thought Gudi Padwa is a very good occasion to share this with all of you. This is called Laath. This is used to make rice flakes or poha. Even today my uncle makes Poha using this Lath twice every year. During Diwali poha made from fresh rice on Laath is offered to the god. Laath is also used to grind spices. Above vessel is made from a stem of a large jack fruit  tree. It is used to store natural sea salt throughout the year. If salt is stored in metal containers

Why Purohit or Priest is not required to perform a Yadnya?

The Vedas have always been presenting a deeper meaning to every term or action and mostly people fail to understand deeper meaning of the Vedas. We have been regularly understanding deeper meaning of many such terms through our blog and books. I could not author a post for a while due to focus on Untold Nakshathta Jyotish . All the while I have been thinking about various fundamental concepts from the Vedas. Untold Nakshathta Jyotish has many such concepts.     Today I plan to explain the concept of Yadnya. Traditionally when we refer to Yadnya we think of a Yadnya Kunda or a holy pit with fire and Purohits offering some grains in the holy fire. This is a perfect practice and can be performed occasionally.     The Vedas also suggest Pancha-Maha-Yadnya or 5 key sacrifices and this practice is supposed to be performed every day. The practice is as below. Everyone shall perform following Yadnyas every day. 1. Brahma Yadnya Brahma means the universal energy. This Practice is
