16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas

16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas:

Here, we provided to 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas. ’16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From the Vedas’ was written by His Holiness Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji Maharaja of Govardhana Matha, Puri. It deals mainly with various Vedic mathematical formulae and their applications for carrying out tedious and cumbersome arithmetical operations, and to a very large extent, executing them mentally. In this field of mental arithmetical operations, the works of the famous mathematicians Trachtenberg and Lester Meyers (High-Speed Maths) are elementary compared to that of Jagadguruji.

16 simple mathematical formulae from the vedas

Some people may find it difficult, at first reading to understand the arithmetical operations although they have been explained very lucidly by Jagadguruji. It is not because the explanations are lacking in any manner but because the methods are totally unconventional. Some people are so deeply rooted in the conventional methods that they, probably subconsciously, reject to see the logic in unconventional methods.

Vedic Mathematics is a method of calculation used by sages in ancient times. Memory plays an important role in this arithmetic technique. in the book Vedic Mathematics: 1, there are sixteen formulae that help to simplify time-consuming arithmetic operations. These formulae need lesser calculations and the process is mostly executed mentally unlike the modern process. Free download PDF 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas.

Bharti Krishna Tirthaji has explained each formula in a clear and simplified way. The book focuses on the birth of knowledge from intuition, an innovative approach, different from that of modern times.

The various mathematical subject matter such as Calculus, Factorization, Equations, Multiplication, Division, and so on are discussed with clarity in the book. Each of the methods explained in the different chapters is made easy to understand. Free download PDF 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas.

There has been some debate on Vedic Mathematics: 1 as to whether the book actually deals with methods from the Vedas. This sixteenth reprint edition was published on 1 January 2013 and is available in paperback.

Key Features:

  • Simple, clear, and easy to understand methods that are written in a manner suitable for modern readers.
  • Some schools have included the technique in their curriculum.






These sixteen formulae can be used to solve problems ranging from arithmetic to algebra to geometry to conics to calculus. The formulae are complete by themselves and applicable to virtually any kind of mathematical problem. Complex mathematical questions that otherwise take numerous steps to solve can be solved with the help of a few steps and in some cases without any intermediate steps at all! And these systems are so simple that even people with an average knowledge of mathematics can easily understand them. Free download PDF 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas.

Once the formula (which is called‘sutra’ in Vedic Mathematics) is learned, it can be applied to a certain category of problems, such as multiplication, division, fractions, and so on. The founder of Vedic Mathematics, Jagadguru Swami Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj, was born in 1884. He was an exceptionally brilliant student right from childhood and always secured first place in all his classes throughout his education. He had an extraordinary proficiency over Sanskrit, English, mathematics, and other subjects. After having completed his B.A. and M.A., he started writing articles on different subjects.

Since then much of Swamiji’s life was spent studying the different spiritual sciences and Vedantic philosophy. He used to go to the nearby forests and practice various forms of meditation and ponder deeply on these subjects. The formulae (sutras) of Vedic Mathematicswere discovered by him in the same manner, viz. through deep intuitive meditation. It is important to note that the word ‘Vedic’ is used as an adjective in connection with the Vedas. We all know that there are four Vedas: Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda, and Atharvaveda. Each of these deals with a specific set of subjects. Free download PDF 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas.

Out of these Vedas, the ‘Atharvaveda’ dealt with subjects of architecture, engineering, and general mathematics. However, according to historians, what we generally call Vedic Mathematics in parlance with the findings of Swamiji is not mentioned anywhere in the Vedas, not even the Atharvaveda which deals with mathematical subjects. Then, the obvious question arises: Why is the word Vedic used to describe this discovery when it has no direct relation with the Vedas? In fact, the use of the word Vedic as an adjective to the systems of Swamiji has aroused a certain amount of controversy. 

However, the followers and disciples of Swamiji have strong arguments. According to Swamiji, the word Veda means the fountainhead and illimitable storehouse of all knowledge. This means that the Vedas should have all the knowledge that is needed by a man for his perfect all-round success. Thus, the word Vedic was used by Swamiji as an adjective to his discovery. It is said that Swamiji discovered these Vedic formulae between 1911-1918. I have used the word‘discovered’ because it has a particular significance in the context of Swamiji’s work. Unlike the other sciences, which are discovered empirically, the discovery of Vedic Mathematics is very intuitive.

Swamiji did not discover the formulae of Vedic Mathematics by deduction but he discovered them out of deep meditation. It is said that he had practiced meditation in deep silence around the forests of Sringeri for a period of eight years, where some higher source of intelligence revealed to him these ‘secrets’.

Swamiji was a spiritually realized personality and so it was possible for him to gain insights through intuitive revelation. Swamiji also told his disciples that he had reconstructed the sixteen formulae from Atharvaveda after tireless research and deep ‘tapas’. Thus, whereas one does not find the sutras in the Atharvaveda, they were actually reconstructed on the basis of intuitive revelation from scattered references of some content of the Atharvaveda.

Swamiji had written sixteen manuscripts and each manuscript dealt with each of the sixteen sutras. These manuscripts were kept by him at the place of one of his disciples. However, the manuscripts were lost from their place of deposit! There was no other written evidence of the sutras apart from the lost manuscripts.

Swamiji was not much disturbed at the loss and said that he could rewrite the whole chunk of research again out of his memory. In 1957, Swamiji wrote an introductory volume to the sixteen sutras. He planned to write further volumes but he subsequently developed a cataract in both eyes and his failing health did not allow him to fulfill his plans. As time passed his health continued to deteriorate, and in 1960 he achieved‘maha samadhi’. Free download PDF 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas.

Thus, because of the loss of the manuscripts, the world was bereft of great knowledge which it would have otherwise greatly cherished. What Swamiji has left behind (in comparison to his research) is just the tip of the iceberg. He created the manuscript of his introductory work around1958 in the USA and his introductory work has scattered references to the sixteen sutras and sub sutras.

Whatever little matter of Vedic Mathematics is available to us today is of such quality and genius that it has taken the world by storm, and people have literally been bewildered by the workings of the techniques. One can only wonder what would have happened to the mathematical world if his complete works were accessible to us. Free download PDF 16 Simple Mathematical Formulae From The Vedas.
