What is Vedic Maths?

Vedic Maths is world’s fastest mental maths system. It helps you calculate faster.

Vedic Maths 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. Tirthaji 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 Maths 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.

How does Vedic Maths 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 Maths 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.

About Vedic Maths

About the Father of Vedic Maths:

What is Vedic Mathematics?

Shri Bharathi Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja, born on 14th 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:

Nikhilam Navatashcaramam DashatahSisyate SesasamjnahAll from 9 and the last from 10

GunitasamuchyahDwandwa YogaThe product of the sum is equal to the sum of the product

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.
