Hindus use holy water taken from sea, lakes and rivers for bathing kings, gods, and on special occasions, ordinary people.  During big Yagnas (Fire Sacrifices) and temple consecration (Kumbha Abishekam)  ceremonies water is brought from different holy places. Tamil and Sanskrit inscriptions praise certain kings bathing everyday in water brought from four different seas. This is to show that they control all the four directions, i.e. the countries in all four directions.

Someone has done a painstaking work by compiling names of the holy rivers and holy sarovars/lakes in different parts of India . This was published in a souvenir on the occasion of a Shivratri Yagna performed in London several years ago.

Arab writers praised India sky high; here are two notes:–


India is a land where when rain falls it turns into pearls and rubies for those who have no ornaments; from here come musk camphor, amber and aloe wood, and various kinds of perfumes for those who require them; here grow all sweet smelling substances and nutmeg and andropogonnadus; here are found ivory and jai-phal, and aloe wood and sandal, and here is found in abundance the mineral tutia; here are found lions, leopards, elephants and bears; and here are found cranes and parrots, and peacocks and pigeons; and here grow the coconut tree and ebony tree and pepper plant; and here are made the unparalleled swords which need not be polished, and the lances which when wielded, large armies are routed; who can deny the excellence of such a land except fools?

Arabic writer Atharul Bilad, Al-Qazvini


Indians are the Most Advanced

The Indians are the first (most advanced), very large in number and belonging to a noble country. All the ancient peoples have acknowledged their wisdom and accepted their excellence in the various branches of knowledge. The kings of china used to call the Indian kings the kings of wisdom because of their great interest in sciences. The Indians, therefore according to all the nations throughout the ages had been the mines of wisdom, and the fountains of justice and administration. But on account of the great distance of india from our country, few of their compositions reached us. And, therefore only a small portion of their sciences was received by us.


We learnt of only a few of their scholars. In astronomy, for example there are three schools of thought in India

1.The school of Siddhanta

2.The school of Arjbar (Aryabhatta)

3.The school of Arkand (Khandakhadyaka)

But in spite of our efforts we received only the theory of Siddhanta. And this is the theory which is followed by a group of Muslim scholars who based their astronomical tables on it.

In music we have received from them the book called Yafar(?) it literally means ‘the fruits of wisdom’. It contains the principles of modulation and the collections of tunes. And what reached us of their science of ethics is the book “Kalila Wa Dimna’’(Panchatantra stories) which is widely known. And what reached us of their works on arithmetic is the one which has been collaborated by Abu Jafar Muhammed b. Musa al- Khawrizmi. This is the shortest process of calculation easiest to learn. It proves the sharp intelligence of Indians, their creative genius and their excellence in invention.

Einstein’s Hindu Connection!

Time uploaded in London : 6-48 am

Where did Einstein get this E= mc2 formula from? Did he get this concept after reading Hindu scriptures? We can’t say anything for sure. But there are two important clues.

Einstein was a Jew. Jews are Yadavas who migrated to Middle East during Rig Vedic days. Yadu became Juda. J=Y is linguistics. But it won’t give any clue to his discovery.

The concept of time in Hindu scripture is very different from the old Western concept. Hindu concept is very scientific. Hindu sages are called Tri Kala Jnanis= who can go beyond Past, Present and Future. Like we see TV serials and films on VCR by ‘Fast Forwarding’ and ‘Rewinding’ they saw TIME!

We are the one to tell the world first about Big Bang and Big Crunch/Shrink. We are the one to tell the world that time is different for Brahma in Celestial Worlds and Brahmins on earth. We are the one who spoke about very big numbers in astronomical terms where as other books were able to count 40 to 120. We are the one who told the world about Zero without which no scientific invention was possible. We are the one who taught the world to write numbers 1,2,3 etc. They were using complicated Roman script to write numbers until a few centuries ago.

First clue

Einstein had several books about Hinduism in his library. One of them was ‘The Secret Doctrine’ published by the Theosophical Society. He has met Hindu scholars including Tagore. Does it say anything about what Einstein said? No. it might have helped him to think scientifically. For instance the Viswarupa Darsanam (Arjuna’s Vision of Universal Form of God) in Bhagavad Gita explains the cyclical nature of time. Even Black holes may be explained with that description. Everything is sucked into this Universal Form in an amazing speed. Arjuna was shown a parallel universe. And I am not the first one to see nuclear science in Bhagavad Gita. Even the Father of Atomic Bomb Robert Oppenheimer recited Gita sloka in great excitement when he witnessed the first atomic explosion (Please read my Atomic Bomb to Zoology in Bhagavad Gita article).

Second Clue

The following anecdote is found in a very old book of anecdotes:

This story is told of, and possibly by, Alfred Einstein, who was asked by his hostess at a social gathering to explain the theory of relativity. Said the great mathematician,

“Madam, I was once walking in the country on a hot day with a blind friend, and said that I would like a drink of milk.

“Milk? Said my friend, ‘Drink I know; but what is milk?

“’A white liquid’, I replied.” ‘Liquid I know; but what is white?’

“’The colour of swan’s feathers.’

“’Feathers I know; what is a swan?’

“’A bird with a crooked neck’

“’Neck I know; but what is this crooked?’

“Thereupon I lost patience. I seized his arm and straightened it. ‘That is straight’, I said; and then I bent it at the elbow. ‘That is crooked’.

“’ ‘Ah!’ said the blind man, ‘Now I know what you mean by milk!’”.

(Thesaurus of Anecdotes, page 198)


This story is found in the Hindu ‘Katha Sarit Sagara’, which is the largest Story collection in the ancient world. All the seeds or plots of old stories such as Arabian Nights are found in it. If Einstein has said it, then he must have read several Hindu stories and scriptures. This might have given some new idea for his lateral thinking on TIME!
