The three-day International Vedic Mathematics Conference, which was held in Delhi saw mathematicians from India and abroad attending the conference jointly organised by Chaudhary Bansi Lal University, Bhiwani and Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas, New Delhi.
In this conference, the emerging dimensions of Vedic mathematics and applications in research works based on science, technology, and social science were discussed in detail. The Conference helped increase the popularity of Vedic Mathematics and enhanced the usefulness of its principles in modern-day scientific techniques.
The major themes of the conference were History of Vedic Mathematics, Vedic Mathematics and Quantitative Aptitude, Vedic Mathematics and Real-life Analysis, Challenges for Vedic Mathematics, Vedic Mathematics for the new millennium, to name a few. Apart from India, participants from countries like the US, UK, Nepal, and Bhutan will also be present.
Jagadguru Shankaracharya Shri Bharti Krishna Teertha Ji, inspired by the Vedas (mainly Atharva Veda) and Upvedas, during his years in 1911 to 1918, through his contemplation and meditation, learned the method of solving mathematics from the ancient Indian method through 16 sutras and 13 sub sutras. With the help of these formulas, the eight functions of mathematics and solutions of various mathematical branches such as algebra, geometry, arithmetic, trigonometry, decomposition, and compilation can be easily obtained.
Sh. Atul Kothari, National Secretary of Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas said, “Vedic mathematics is a system of calculation based on Vedas and Indian philosophy. Because of the uncomplicated methods of Vedic Mathematics, its popularity and acceptance are increasing all over the world. Mathematics is basically a Sanskrit word which means to count. But, along with the declining popularity of Sanskrit, the historical heritage of this Indian calculation system had become extinct. We all must shoulder the responsibility to preserve this heritage, in which this conference can prove to be an important link.”Posted in International, News
