This book is a geometrical survey of the Samskrit and Prakrt scientific and quasi-scientific literature of India beginning with the Vedic literature and ending with the early part of the 17th century. It deals in detail with the Sulbasutras in the Vedic literature, with the mathematical parts of Jaina Canonical works of the Hindu Siddhantas, and with the contributions to geometry made by the astronomer mathematicians Aryabhata I & II, Sripati, Bhaskara I & II, Sangamagrama Madhava, Paramesvara, Nilakantha, his disciples and a host of others. The works of the mathematicians Mahavira, Sridhara and Narayana Pandita and the Bakshali Manuscript have also been studied.

"The work seeks to explode the theory that the Indian mathematical genius was predominantly algebraic and computational and that it eschewed proofs and rationales. There was a school in India which delighted to demonstrate even algebraical results geometrically. In their search for a sufficiently good approximation for the value of py Indian mathematicians had discovered the tool of integration, which they used equally effectively for finding the surface area and volume of a sphere and in other fields. This discovery of integration was the sequel of the inextricable blending of geometry and series mathematics."

TESTIMONIALS

I fully support your mission and I will definitely be ordering more in the future and I have already told some friends and my teacher about your sight. The books are very reasonably priced so I know your motivation is more elevated than with most book sellers. My Vedic path is and has been focused on Jyotish for a few years now. I am blessed to have the highly reputed and redoubtable Mantriji as my teacher (teacher to Svoboda and De Fouw). I know that all so called new age wisdom, paths, etc, even Gurdjieff invariably leads back to the Vedas. Consider yourself blessed for spreading the divine word. Have a wonderful day....
