"Gopi bhagya madhuvrata srngiso dadhi sandhiga khala jivita khatava gala hala rasandara"

Translation:

O Lord anointed with the yogurt of the milkmaids' worship (Krishna), O savior of the fallen, O master of Shiva, please protect me.

Is that a prayer to Krishna or a consonant code for the solution of pi/10 = 0.31415926535897932384626433832792? Or both?

Vedic mathematics is composed of sutras, which have been formulated over many centuries, some of which have been lost over the centuries due to neglect. With the dedicated efforts of a few enthusiasts it is being revived to its previous glory. The pioneer in this field was Jagadguru Swami Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja, who compiled sixteen sutras and unleashed this wonderful science to the world. He wrote sixteen volumes encompassing some of the greatest Vedic sutras but all were lost and he finally wrote one book explaining the sixteen sutras before his death..

This epoch-making, monumental work unfolds a new method of approach. It relates to the truth of numbers and magnitudes equally to all sciences and arts. The book brings to light how great and true knowledge is born of intuition, quite different from modern Western method.

Vedic scholars did not use figures for big numbers in their numerical notation. Instead, they preferred to use the Sanskrit alphabets, with each alphabet constituting a number. Several mantras, in fact, denote numbers; that includes the famed Gayatri mantra which adds to 108 when decoded.

This book by James T Glover might come a little late for you but Vedic Mathematics for Schools offers a fresh and easy approach to learning mathematics in schools. It is not too late to learn to appreciate mathematics.

James T Glover is head of mathematics at St. James Independent Schools in London where he has been a teacher for eighteen years. He is director of mathematical studies at the School of Economic Science and a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. He has been researching Vedic Mathematics and its use in education for more than twenty years and has run public courses in London on the subject.

Vedic Mathematics for Schools offers a fresh and easy approach to learning mathematics. The system was reconstructed from ancient Vedic sources by the late Bharati Krishna Tirthaji earlier this century and is based on a small collection of sutras. Book 1 of the series is intended for primary schools in which many of the fundamental concepts of mathmatics are introduced.

Vedic Mathematics for Schools, Book 2 is intended as a first year textbook for senior schools or for children aiming for examination at 11+. It is based on the fundamental principles of Vedic mathematics which were reconstructed earlier this century by Sri Sankaracarya Bharati Krsna Tirthaji. Although the sutras may well be very ancient, practice and experience have shown that they are highly relevant and useful to the modern-day teaching of mathematics. They are entirely applicable to modern problems and even to modern approaches to mathematics.

Topics covered include the four rules of number, fractions and decimals, simplifying and solving in algebra, perimeters and areas, ratio and proportion, percentages, averages, graphs, angles and basic geometrical constructions. The book contains step-by-step worked examples with explanatory notes together with over two hundred practice exercises.

The material in this book is currently used at schools around the world assocaited with the Education Renaissance Trust.

Reviews:

"Well-written...the set-up and printing are exquisite." - Bhavan's Journal

"Book II, consisting of 24 chapters, eight per school term, extends the list to nine more "Sutras" to serve the needs of first year students of senior school leading to 11-plus examination. Vedic Mathematics throws open a welcome opportunity for mathelets or whizkids to hone their skills and win laurels through display of mental feat in giving one-line quick responses to mathematical calculations and manipulations." - P.K. Srinivasan

"J.T. Glover rightly states, mathematics has two directions--an outer and an inner. The outer direction is fulfilled by applying the mathematical formulae. The inner direction is the investigation of the real nature of the working phenomena from the origin of man or universe up to the ultimate reality. There are many more interesting and intelligent short cuts in multiplication, division and so on. This book also demonstrates how Vedic Mathematics belongs not only to an hoary antiquity but also is... as modern as the day after tomorrow.'" - S.V.U. Oriental Journal

"Well-written, this book supplements Bharati Krishna Thirtha's 'Vedic Mathematics' published by the same publisher...As against attempts by earlier writers, the presentation, the illustrations and the exercises are all executed very well." Prof. M.S. Rangachari

"The book has been neatly printed and moderately priced. For its immense intellectual worth, it is highly recommended to the seekers of knowledge of mathematics." - Vedic Astrology

Review by Neil Lusby: Tuesday 10 January, 2006
Excellent book with fantastic techniques that drastically
improve ability and speed.
I am very pleased with book 1 am now looking at other volumes.
However, there are quite a few errors in the answer tables. I attribute them to publishing errors as the techniques work perfectly. Do not be put off by these mistakes as learning the techniques more than compensates.
