DECIMAL SYSTEM OF NUMBERS

DECIMAL SYSTEM IS FOUND IN THE RIG VEDA, THE OLDEST BOOK IN THE WORLD. IT IS DATED BETWEEN 6000 BCE AND 1200 BCE. BUT THE FULL DECIMAL SYSTEM  10 TO BILLION IS FOUND IN THE VAJASANEYA SAMHITA OF  SUKLA YAJUR VEDA 17-2.

IF HINDUS HAVE NOT DISCOVERED HE VALUE OF ZERO AND THE DECIMAL SYSTEM , THERE WOULDN’T BE ANY COMPUTER, INTERNET OR SATELITES. SCIENCE ADVANCED BECAUSE OF THE MATHEMATICAL CONTRIBUTION OF HINDUS. ON THE OTHER SIDE, THEY DISCOVERED COW’S MILK IS EQUAL TO MOTHER’S MILK. ALSO FOUND OUT THE POWERFUL HORSE CHARIOT WITH WHEELS.

Yajur Veda has this passage ,

“O Agni , may these sacrificial bricks be mine. Own milch kine; one and ten, a ten and hundred, a hundred and a thousand, a ten thousand and a hundred thousand , a hundred thousand and a million, a million million or a billion. May these bricks be mine milch kine in yonder world and this world.

There are other similar passages too.

Ekam multiplied by ten  is dasa;

Dasa multiplied by ten  is satam

Satam multiplied by ten  is sahasram and so on.

The numbers greater than thousand crore crore are not given separate names.

The numbers obtained by dividing one by ten, hundred, thousand etc, are called dasaamsa, sataamsa, sahasraamsa etc respectively.

The reference to the bricks is to be noted. We see lot of brick structures in the Indus- Sarasvati River Bank Civilization. Though out Vedas we see references to Vedic altars built with bricks , particularly with Star names. All these points out to the Vedic basis of the civilization.
