Well Vedic Maths has great shortcut hacks for Multiplying Big Numbers! You’ll love Multiplication if you understand the visual Vedic Maths principles. Its fast and easy!

This Video has a lot of Multiplication methods given by me few years back on stage in New York. Let me know if this helped.

Indian religions consist of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism of which the Vedic period (under Hinduism) marks the beginning of the period wherein works of Sanskrit are written. The word “Veda” means “knowledge or wisdom” in Sanskrit and these Veda’s are regarded as the oldest sacred texts.

The Vedic texts are classified into four types namely,

1. **The Rigveda **– hymns to be recited by the hotṛ;

2. **The Yajurveda** – formulas to be recited by the adhvaryu or officiating priest

3. **The Samaveda** – formulas to be sung by the udgātṛ and

4. **The Atharvaveda** is a collection of spells and incantations and speculative hymn.

The above four are collectively known as the Samhitas (Veda). The mathematical calculations that are born in this period are called as Vedic Calculations or Vedic Maths. The first three are basically ritual handbooks that were used by priests during the Vedic period and the last Veda Atharva Veda is where our Vedic Maths falls in. “Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji (1884-1960) “, a scholar of Sanskrit, Mathematics, History, and Philosophy rediscovered Vedic math from these ancient Indian scriptures and constructed 16 sutras and their corollaries for easy and effective calculations.

India gave solutions to the world’s problems. Through its ingenious solutions, it helped the world advance and progress especially in the fields of science and mathematics.

*‘**Zero**’* is one of the greatest contributions from the times of Aryabhatta in the 5th century. India also invented the decimal number system which is used to this day among other mathematical concepts. India had a series of astronomers and mathematicians like Bhaskaracharya, Bhramagupta, Madhava etc who worked relentlessly and made path-breaking achievements possible.

It is in this context that a spiritual guru who was also a mathematician wrote a book in the early 20th Century in India. As the legend goes he went into solitude in the forests of South India between 1911 and 1918, meditated and researched for nearly a decade and came up with an ingenious way to speed up mathematical calculations – *mentally*.

It is said that he took the help of lexicography, lexicons of earlier times because as a language develops and comes in context with other languages words change their meaning. Words get additional meaning and words get deteriorated in meaning. So he studied old lexicons including Visva, Amara, Arnava, etc. With these, he got the key in that way in one instance and one thing after another helped him in the elucidation of the other mathematical formulae.

His Holiness Shri Bharti Krishna Tirthaji – the spiritual guru gave 16 Sutras or word formulas by which one can supposedly do difficult calculations easily. He said that the techniques were from the ancient Indian scriptures called the ‘Vedas’ and hence called it *‘Vedic Mathematics’.*

Tirthaji propagated the techniques through lectures and classes across India. He was the first monk of his order ever to visit the west and promote Vedic Mathematics in the Universities in the United States. He spoke at various lectures attended by thousands of students of various universities and organizations such as Stanford University, University of California, San Diego College, etc. His visit was even covered by the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.

He addressed a select group of Caltech graduate students in mathematics at the California Institute of Technology. He was introduced by Mr. Wesley L.Hershey’s executive secretary of Caltech YMCA and thereafter Bharati Krishnaji discoursed and gave blackboard demonstrations. This meeting was the first in the United States in which His Holiness presented his mathematical discoveries.

Tirthaji authored his book ‘Vedic Mathematics ‘in 1957 and it was published in 1965 posthumously. His work was an epic instant bestseller among students and also attracted its own line of critics.

Ignoring the merits of the mathematical system given by Tirthaji, mathematicians criticized him for calling it ‘Vedic Mathematics’ and they said that the Vedas does not contain any mathematics and that the maths in the book were not from the Vedic Period as well.

Much has changed, after over 55 years since the book was published. The academic student community, in general, loves the methods given by Tirthaji. It is important for mental mathematics and its importance among competitive exam aspirants cannot be denied. The rise of the internet only led to making Vedic Maths popular and most needed to make Maths fun and interesting rather than dull and boring. A search on Google generates over 35, 90,000 results as we speak in 2019.

In India, Vedic Maths is being introduced in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Bihar, and Punjab. A lot of academic as well as entrepreneurial interest is there in many countries including India, the United States, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Philippines, UAE, Syria, Ghana, Tunisia, etc.

It is no doubt that we can safely say that Vedic Mathematics is India’s newest gift to the World.

In this video, Gaurav Tekriwal, Founder of Vedic Maths Forum India highlights the scope of Vedic Maths in the near future.

Globally we are facing a crisis in Math education. Maths phobia is prevalent globally among students, teachers and even parents. There is an acute scarcity of math teachers around the world — so much so that no one wants to become a Maths teacher anymore.

The quality of lesson delivery in classrooms is poor and private tutoring options are expensive and unaffordable. Vedic Maths can be considered as a new and emerging sector in India. Thanks to the internet it is getting widespread attention and focus. Only now has it been made a part of the curriculum in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Haryana. With the help of the Government of India, Vedic maths is all set to become popular and a boon for students.

As a Vedic Maths teacher, you can be a part of the solution to this problem. This problem also spells as a global opportunity if you look deeper. The concepts taught in Vedic Maths has widespread applications for Grade III onwards all the way up to competitive exam aspirants. Hence, the future and scope of Vedic Maths is very wide and given time it will only shine bright.

Be it school maths, SAT math prep, other competitive exams, we have all the arsenal to power boost your performance.

The scope of the topics covered in Vedic Math is quite wide. From the four operations to squares, cubes, roots, algebra – equations even trigonometry can be solved with the help of the Vedic System among other topics.

Trachtenberg Speed System covers Multiplications, Addition, Division, Squares, and roots. I felt after going through that the Trachtenberg system that it is just a tip of the iceberg. And If you want to see the complete iceberg go deep into the Vedic System!

A Career in Vedic Maths is primarily a career in teaching the subject to students globally. Every student deserves to know what this subject is all about and how can they benefit from it. A part of the work is to design and structure the curriculum according to each country and translating it as well to new languages. Overall it should be one’s passion to understand the potential of this subject and to spread it worldwide. India still is yet to see the complete dawn of this subject in our schools and colleges and this subject as an idea has the potential to transform the world for the better!
