    In this Srijan Talk, acclaimed author and researcher Nilesh Nilkanth Oak points to the fradulent attempts, multiple of them, of the West in dating the Surya Siddhanta and presents his original research along with his teammate Rupa Bhaty, to arrive at a more authentic date for the ancient treatise. This remained the most accurate estimate for the length of the sidereal year anywhere in the world for over a thousand years! I am sure it is not compulsory in any Western university. The Surya Siddhanta vastly overestimates the angular size of the planets and vastly underestimates the linear distance to them It was deliberately forgotten that beginning of bright half of lunar month of Magha should coincide with aforementioned event. I knew that these equations would not be understood by those who do not possess a first hand knowledge of Surya Siddhanta, and therefore I was already constructing a web site where I wanted to transfer these calculations.

    I had only asked for his opinion whether I should put some intricate math relating Surya Siddhanta with modern astronomy on a new website or on a new page in Wiki, because I was sure the article on Surya Siddhanta was not a proper place for it. Rgvedic and Yujurvedic treatises of Vedanga Jyotisha mention that Uttarayana winter solstice coincided with the simultaneous entry of Sun and Moon into Dhanishtha in the beginning of bright half of lunar month of Magha. The day and night of the gods and of the demons are mutually opposed to one another. You may find it in Burgess too.

    Not content to limit measurements to Earth, the Surya Siddhanta also states the motion, and diameters of the planets! And it should be done in collaborative manner, within the guidelines of Wiki. Please try to figure out how to use these talkpages. Surya the supreme light was the main solar deity in Hinduism; and also represents the Sun in India and Nepal. Recently, many governmental and non-governmental organisations in India have started publishing annual almanacs based upon a freely distributed Surya Siddhantic software Vinay Jha,

The Surya Siddhanta book

Every The Surya Siddhanta book I had contributed was already published. However, when the West became aware of Surya Siddhanta around the 18th century CE, they set about translating the text hurriedly and arrived at a date for its origin around CE. The concept of Philolaus that Earth and all heavenly bodies revolve round a central fire which could never be seen since there was a counter earth between the earth and this fire was related to Puranic and Surya Siddhantic tradition of a heavenly Meru which was away from the centre of Earth and was related to a terrestrial Mt Meru see the section "Meru: Centre of All 14 Universes".

He could not win the confidence of a bulk of pandits, and therefore could not gain access either to the available commentaries e. There is a vibrant tradition that tells us the work is 2 million years old.

Vedic astrology includes the "Ancient Surya Sidhata" by Maya. It is noteworthy that the philosophical and astronomical or astrological statements made by epic and puranic authors of India conform to Surya Siddhantic views.

The Makaranda Tables with zero date of AD are Surya Siddhantic, made from some approximate formulae of Surya Siddhanta, which implies that Makarandacharya possessed the approximate formulae and made the tables made from those formulae, but did not made public those formulae.

In modern notation, this gives the shadow of the gnomon at midday as : Even today many astrologers in India use Surya Siddhanta as base to compute their Panchangs Almanacs in many languages.

The Surya Siddhantic sidereal year has Unfortunately, this excellent Surya Siddhantic commentary by Aryabhata was lost during or after 16th century, and now most of people wrongly believe that this Aryabhata was the same as the author of Aryabhatiya. Please take a moment to review my edit.

Without the study of Persian and Indian astrology, metaphysics and astronomy, we are missing elements that cause the relative break down in later systems.

The bigger a mass of body is, the higher will be the force of gravity. Surya Siddhanta is a book of mathematics, as far as its equations are concerned, and in mathematics personal opinions do not count, whether they are notable or not.

It is only the relation of Surya Siddhanta with modern astronomy which is causing problems of comprehension, being a difficult topic. I am sure Moreschi did not read this section which you deleted.

Important original facts had to be deliberately forgotten or distorted in order to prove posterity of Surya Siddhanta with respect to Almagest. This is the most difficult portion The astronomical time cycles contained in the text were remarkably accurate at the time.

Lack of commucication leads to misunderstanding. Is that identification in the Tamil epic itself, or is it a later claim?

By contrast it is stated in cold hard numbers by the Sun God, Surya. From here you can lost your mind!!! I did not give these unpublished equations in Wiki. The difference of the kritayuga and the other yugas, as measured by the difference in the number of the feet of Virtue in each, is as follows: a].

Our theories were used as a base for many concepts such as weather forecast, astronomy, astrology, aviation etc. In a kalpa are reckoned fourteen manus with their respective twilights; at the commencement of the kalpa is a fifteenth dawn, having the length of a kritayuga.

The oldest and most important treaitse of the post-Christian period on Indian Astronomy that has come down to us is the Surya Siddhanta consisting 14 chapters written in slokas.
