Dating of the mahabharata by dr v vartak
The speaker, Nilesh Nilkanth Oak is the author of ‘When did the Mahabharata war happen? Now, of course, people ask why bother dating Mahabharata and Ramayana? I have read the subject of history, not just from the perspective of Mahabharata and Ramayana. It feels comfortable making claims and it encourages others and says come and prove me wrong, that’s science.
: The Mystery of Arundhati’ and ‘The Historic Rama: Indian civilization at the end of Pleistocene’. But just as a reader of the Subject, I have read for 20 plus years. So, somebody says that’s a coincidence may be one reference not at all, remember there are 215 and you can go just one after another.
If you go out at night and assuming they are in the sky? So, what does that I tell you if this statement of Vyas is true? Iyengar, those of you who may know the name, he recently retired from Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. Everyone mentions that remaining three but not this one. Because, if you go back unless six thousand years, you cannot explain it. If you go out at night, looking at the north direction, you will identify the pole star.
A quick translation, that respected Arundhati has gone ahead of Vasishtha; is walking ahead of Vasishtha. How many of you are familiar with “Saptarishi” in the sky and how many of you can point them out? It’s right up there and if you have even an ordinary binocular you would be able to see very nicely, even you can see with the naked eye if you have a very good eyesight. That’s the scenario today, that was the scenario 1000 years ago, 2000 years ago, 3000 years ago, 4000 years ago, 5000 years ago, 6000 years ago. Vyas is saying Arundhati is walking ahead of Vasishtha. Well, I just told you even if you go back 6000 years ago still Vasishtha is walking ahead of Arundhati. The reason is, there are four specific observations in this chapter.
Now, you would imagine, all these one thirty plus researchers would do something about it, right, it exists. Second person, Bharat Ratna Mahamahopadhyaya Pandrang Vaman Kane and he said that this is something impossible in the very order of nature, “astronomically speaking.” So, he also said someone might have inserted. You know what he did, he took this last line and tried to combine this line with another line of another Adhyaya of Mahabharat. You find all stars rotate around pole star and how do they rotate? This track, a track of one star and I will say this star is walking ahead of next to that star. There is another astronomy phenomenon, where earth’s axis points to in the sky.
Other people talk about their epics, talk about their history with great pride. Quickly after the talk, you might ask this question and I will quickly give the high-level answer. So, Corroboration is or the validation is how we solve this problem and falsification removes the Status Quo. I will tell you in simple ways how science progresses. Well, I was invited to two conferences and that’s how the whole thing started and that is how we all are here. So again this set of observation also instantly falsifies any date that falls after 4500 BC.And the other side is driven by the phenomenon known as “precession of equinoxes”. You might have read it in Ramayana or seen the TV serials.Actually, the answer is very fast because we have gone through it. Everybody is walking towards Lanka and during this time, is describing the various things in the sky. You compute the consequences, the predictions and you compare the consequences with the actual observations, experiments, nature, simulations and you reach the conclusion. You need to ask three questions and this is not about Mahabharata and Ramayana. You need to ask three questions anytime you see a claim. The first question is, you can ask that person what is your ? Then you need to ask two questions again, very straight forward. He says all science problems just start with a guess, you have a problem you try to come out with an explanation. Now, what you do if there are many researchers claiming to have an answer to the same problem? There are more than 800 astronomy references together between Ramayana & Mahabharata and my theory simply says all the astronomy references from these two epics are actual, factual, visual observations of the sky of that time.
