# What is Vedic Mathematics?

### Vedic Math’s is World’s Fastest Mental Math’s System. It helps you calculate faster

Vedic Mathematics was discovered by Shri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji during his extensive research on the Vedas. An avid reader and researcher by nature he went into deep meditations and studied the four Vedas extensively only to discover the sixteen sutras lying hidden in the verses of the Atharva Veda. Teerthaji spent long years in the forest of Sringeri from 1911 to 1981 and studied the literature mostly written in old lexicons including Visva, Amara, Arnava, Sabdakalpardruma etc.

Vedic Mathematics consists of 16 Sutras or Word Formulae and 13 sub-sutras (Sub Formulae) which can be used for solving mathematical problems in a far simpler manner. It offers techniques and shortcuts to master numerical calculations in split seconds. Using these techniques, it is possible to calculate 10-15 times faster than usual methods. The difficult problems or huge sums can be solved almost immediately by the Vedic method.

## Benefits of learning Vedic Math’s

#### Increases speed and accuracy

#### Improved Academic Performance and Instant Results

#### Sharpens your mind, increases mental agility and intelligence

#### Increase visualization and concentration in children

#### Became a Mental Calculator

## How does Vedic Math’s help School children and Competitive Exam aspirants?

There are just 16 Jaw dropping Sutras or word Formula which solve all known mathematical problems in the branches of Arithmetic, Algebra , Geometry, and Calculus. They are easy to understand, easy to apply and easy to remember.The system is wonderfully interrelated and unified. Working with these formula is healthy for the mind as they guide a way the mind naturally works and are therefore proved to be helpful in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution.

One can develop their own applications of Vedic Math’s to Regular School methods once an expert. This promotes creativity among interested pupils.For your child it means giving them a competitive edge, a way to optimize their performance and gives them a edge in mathematics and logic that will them to shine in the classroom and beyond.

## A little about the Father of Vedic mathematics himself:

**Shri Bharathi Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja**, born on 14^{th} March, 1884 at Tinnievelly, Tamil Nadu, and India was known as Venkatraman before he became a saint. He had a brilliant academic record with a Masters (MA) degree in six subjects like Sanskrit, English, History, Philosophy, Mathematics and Science from the Bombay Centre of the American College of Science, Rochester, New York. He was also appointed “Warden of the Sons of India” by Dr. Annie Besant in 1908.

### Tirthaji's Works:

During 1911-1918, Bharati Krishnaji practiced deep meditation and studied metaphysics And Vedas which led him to practice an arduous life of a Sadhu (saint). He learned from the Vedas especially ‘Rig-Veda’, directly or indirectly and he intuitively rediscovered them. Later he wrote the sutras on the manuscripts but were lost. He found “Sixteen Sutras” or word formulas which cover all the branches of Mathematics – Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Physics, plan and spherical geometry, conics, calculus- both differential and integral, applied mathematics of all various kinds, dynamics, hydrostatics and all.

## The Vedic Maths Sixteen Sutras in details along with their Sanskrit names:

Sutra | Sub-Sutra | Meaning |
---|---|---|

Ekadhikena Purvena | Anurupyena | By one more than the previous one |

Nikhilam Navatashcaramam Dashatah | Sisyate Sesasamjnah | All from 9 and the last from 10 |

Urdhva-Tiryagbyham | Adyamadyenantyamantyena | Vertically and crosswise |

Paravartya Yojayet | Kevalaih Saptakam Gunyat | Transpose and adjust |

Shunyam Saamyasamuccaye | Vestanam | When the sum is the same that sum is zero |

Anurupye Shunyamanyat | Shunya Anyat | If one is in ratio, the other is zero |

Sankalana-vyavakalanabhyam | Yavadunam Tavadunikritya Varga Yojayet | By addition and by subtraction |

Puranapuranabyham | Antyayordashake’pi | By the completion or non-completion |

Chalana-Kalanabyham | Antyayoreva | Differences and Similarities |

Yavadunam | Samuccayagunitah | Whatever the extent of its deficiency |

Vyashtisamasthi | Lopanasthapanabhyam | Part and Whole |

Shesanyankena Charamena | Vilokanam | The remainders by the last digit |

Sopaantyadvayamantyam | Gunitasamuccayah Samuccayagunitah | The ultimate and twice the penultimate |

Ekanyunena Purvena | Dhvajanka | By one less than the previous one |

Gunitasamuchyah | Dwandwa Yoga | The product of the sum is equal to the sum of the product |

Gunakasamuchyah | Adyam Antyam Madhyam | The factors of the sum is equal to the sum of the factors |

## The Later life of Tirthaji:

In 1925 he became the Head of the Govardhan Matha Monastery in Puri, Orissa and was the

pontiff till 1960 the year of his “Maha Samadhi”. He planned to write other sutras later. But soon he developed a cataract in both of his eyes and passed away in year 1960.

The Vedic Maths Forum has been promoting Vedic Mathematics globally since 2000. The New Zealand Chapter was founded by Mrs.Kalpana Gaikwad in Auckland in 2018 to bring Maths Education to every body in the country. The Forum will be conducting workshops, talks, presentations and online classes to spread the idea of Vedic Mathematics, to make Maths fun and engaging and to raise the standards of numeracy in the country.
