Golden Ratio? ‘Mrityunjaya’ – The Key To Life | Ancient Indian Secret of Vedas | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, in the previous video we saw how Pingala documented the fibonacci number 2200 years ago in india and how fibonacci number is the basis of life itself. But, did Pingala discover this series of numbers or did Pingala take the knowledge from even more ancient sources available in Hindu texts. In Hinduism, the origin and preservation of life is explained by a concept known as Mrityunjaya. So according to hinduism this is the Mrityunjaya yantra.

This denotes the earth, this denotes the water, and this denotes fire and air and space. This is the simplest Mrityunjaya Yantra which existed in ancient times. You can still see this yantra in many ancient temples in this simple form. It’s quite interesting because earth and water are at the lowest level, fire and air are at a higher level, and space is at the topmost level. And you would have noticed that i’m starting this point from earth, and drawing one continuous lineand ending this in earth, showing how earth starts life and it also ends here in the same point. These five elements are called Pancha Bhoota in Hinduism and these are the important aspects of origin and preservation of life.

If somebody is sick, if somebody is critically ill, his family and friends will draw this yantra and will chant Mrityunjaya mantra – they will chant a specific mantra 108 times every day to make sure that he comes back to normalcy. And this Mrityunjaya mantra is very old, it is considered to be at least 5000 years old because it’s part of the Rig Veda which is the oldest text known. And this mantra is a very strange mantra, it’s not a beeja mantra – beej mantras are known only for their sounds and they don’t have particular meanings. But this mantra has words which have specific meanings, and the mantra goes like this:

oṃ tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ puṣṭi-vardhanam urvārukam...

And the mantra goes like this. And it’s very strange because the term ‘Urvarukam’ actually means a specific type of cucumber, a type of cucumber. And this is weird because they’re using a mantra like this, they’re chanting a mantra like this 108 times to preserve a life. They’re talking about a specific variety of cucumber and this type of cucumber is called this squirting cucumber. There are various explanations about this, the mantra basically says, just like how a cucumber falls from its mother, life goes on.  And this is the secret of Mrityunjaya.

Now, there are so many different explanations about this given by various spiritual leaders and basically they talk about how cucumbers gently fall from the plant, so on and so forth. But it’s very interesting because if you actually observe this cucumber fall from the plant, it’s very very interesting and I will show you how this cucumber falls from the plant. Now, you can see, as you’re watching this video the cucumber is falling from its plant and its seeds are being thrown away in the air and it’s being spread everywhere. This is the secret of Mrityunjaya mantra.

Now, you’ve seen how Urvarukam fruit is falling from the plant, what do you think is the secret to this mantra? Why are human beings repeating this 108 times as a ritual for 5000 years?Believe it or not the seeds in the cucumber fruit are arranged in fibonacci pattern and when it’s falling from the plant, the seeds will be spread in fibonacci pattern.

Now this is the secret of the mantra. Of course, if you look at a cucumber, this is cylindrical and you will see seeds in various pattern. Now the seeds are arranged in 3D and it’s a little bit hard for you to understand this because it’s in 3D, but when the cucumber falls the seeds will be spread everywhere okay? But why is the fibonacci number so important for the seeds to be spreading in various directions? Why can’t it not be in some other pattern other than the fibonacci pattern?

To understand this, this is a little bit complicated because this is in 3D, we are looking at a cylinder-like structure, but if you look at a sunflower, so this is a sunflower, and you will see seeds. And the seeds will actually look like a spiral and it’ll be very beautiful.

Of course, this is a terrible diagram I am drawing guys, because I am not good at this. But if you look at an actual sunflower you will be amazed because these seeds are arranged in spirals of successive fibonacci numbers. And experts have studied these seeds and they will notice that there are spirals going clockwise and there are spirals going anti-clockwise okay? And the spirals will always be in 21, 34, 55, 89 and these are all fibonacci numbers. So if the clockwise number is 21, the anti-clockwise will be 34. If the clockwise is 34, then the anti-clockwise will be 55, so the spirals will always be in successive fibonacci numbers.

For example, you will not see the clockwise to be 21 and the anti-clockwise to be in 89. You will always see the successive numbers side by side and it’s very interesting. Because why is it designed like that? Why not just have 21 and 89? Why do they have to be the successive fibonacci numbers arranged in nature? Why does nature prefer that? The answer to that question is, it’s not about the fibonacci numbers itself, it’s about a ratio between these two numbers. If you divide 34 by 21, you will get a ratio around 1.618. This is called the golden ratio or the divine ratio and it is denoted by the symbol called φ and if you divide 55 by 34 again you will get the same ratio. If you divide 89 by 55 again you will get the same ratio. You are getting this ratio which is approximately 1.618. Actually this number goes on forever because it’s the most irrational number possible.

But it’s not just because of the fibonacci numbers, it’s because of the ratio between two successive fibonacci numbers that is important for nature. Now, what does this ratio mean in the arrangement of seeds? So let’s say your enemy gets to play god for just one day and he’s going to design a sunflower, right? Your enemy is not that smart, right? He’s just dumb, so he’s not going to choose this golden ratio, he’s going to choose a ratio, like for example: 1 okay? This is a sunflower and he is going to arrange seeds with this ratio of 1.

What this ratio means is that, it’s the number of turns he can use around the circle okay? So this is the center, so he will put a seed like this here and because he’s using this ratio of 1, which means one complete turn okay? So he will arrange a seed like this, he will arrange a seed like this, he will arrange a seed like this and he’s done, okay? So his sunflower looks kind of silly, right? so his sunflower looks like this. Of course, you can see this never occurs in nature, no sunflower, no flower is going to arrange its seeds like this.

Now, let’s say you get to play god for one day, so you’re going to become god and what number would you choose? Obviously you’re smarter than your enemy, right? So you’re going to come up with some number like 0.25 okay? So this is the number you’re choosing. So your flower, your sunflower is going to look like this. So this is the center you put this first seed here right? So 0.25 that’s like one quarter, so your second seed would look like this and again 0.25 your third seed would look like, this your fourth seed will look like this okay?

And if you keep on going your seeds will look like this. It’s like a four spoked wheel. Now this is much better right, this design looks much better than your enemy, right? But still this is not the best design in the world. Of course, plants are much much smarter than human beings, right? This is why plants are worshiped as gods in Hinduism because plants have extraordinary intelligence. And that’s why plants are choosing this ratio which is the golden ratio.

So the plants are choosing a number called the golden ratio okay? And if you arrange the seeds in this ratio, you will have these amazing spirals and you can see that the seeds are also perfectly aligned which looks kind of surreal okay? But the most important question is:

Why? Why do the plants have to sort of “think” about the golden ratio and why do they have to arrange the seeds in this fashion? Why not just arrange them with your design of 0.25?

Experts sometimes now claim that this is very important so they could use this space and maximize the number of seeds okay? So this is the explanation that experts are giving right now, but plants really do not care about this at all. They don’t care about saving space what they do care about is, Mrityunjaya, right? Now what is Mrityunjaya? Think about Mrityunjaya while i clear this board.

Okay so what is Mrityunjaya from a plant’s perspective? It is to create and sustain life. Now what is the purpose of any seed? Why are plants creating seeds? The idea is to spread its own genes. Every seed is a pocket right? It’s a gene pocket and it’s going to be spread everywhere. This is exactly why the seeds are arranged in fibonacci pattern.

Now if you arrange your seeds like this according to your enemy’s design in a sunflower, and then the wind blows all these seeds will go only in one direction and they will fall down like this. The chances of all these seeds germinating and growing into plants are very slim because they all fall in the same place. They will obstruct one another, they will get less sunlight, they have to take the water from the same place.

If you arrange it according to 0.25, when the wind blows, you make sure they only go in four different places. But when you arrange them according to the golden ratio, when you arrange them in spirals in this complicated spiral pattern and when the wind blows this is the best design, because it’s going to go in hundreds of different directions. So the plant is arranging the seeds beautifully to maximize Mrityunjaya, to maximize life, to maximize its spreading of its genes. This is why the plant is arranging its seeds using this golden ratio.

Now, Of course, this is what is happening in Urvarukam (Cucumber),so this is what we see in the Mrityunjaya mantra in 3D right? This is 2D but if you look at the seeds in the cucumber this is why you see the seeds sort of exploding in various directions, okay? But every plant uses this golden ratio in 3D as well. If you look at a plant, you’ll see a leaf like this and then it’ll take a particular turn and again it’ll have another leaf and again it’ll take a particular turn and it’ll look like this the third leaf will go like this the fourth leaf will directly point to you the fifth leaf will be like this.

When you look at a plant and you you see that it has five leaves, you don’t think much, but when you look at it from the top, from the top view, the five leaves will look like this, okay? And this ratio of turn.. the natural arrangement of how leaves are being placed in these plants is called the divergence ratio okay? And believe it or not, this divergence ratio matches the golden ratio. Why? Why is a plant arranging its leaves to the golden ratio?

We saw the seeds but why do the leaves have to be in fibonacci pattern? why do the leaves have to be in this golden ratio? Mrityunjaya, right? Because Mrityunjaya is not only creating life, but it’s also preserving life. It’s also protecting your own life. Remember this is why people are chanting Mrityunjaya mantra to protect somebody’s life. What is the purpose of these leaves? What do leaves do? They have to use the sunlight and convert it into food, and make sure that the plant survives.

If the leaves are arranged one on top of another, only the topmost leaf will get all the sunlight. So you can see how intelligent the plants are, you know, in arranging the leaves? They have to maximize the amount of sunlight each leaf is getting. So all the leaves can use photosynthesis and convert sunlight into food, and then make the plant live for a very long time. If the plant is not smart enough, and it does not use the golden ratio.. think about this, if a plant is not following this ratio and it has very less leaves, it will not be able to produce enough food and the plant will die.

If a plant is not following this ratio and is producing too many leaves, it’s useless because many of the leaves will not get sunlight and it becomes pointless, and again this plant will not have a good life. So, to have an ideal life, the plant has to follow the golden ratio. I will come back to this diminishing model and the overcrowded model later, but so far I think it would have been easy for you to understand the concept of Mrityunjaya.

So how do you conquer death? How do you live forever? You can become immortal by living alone like Isaac Newton. You can make great theories and you can become immortal. But most people and other living things really become immortal by creating more life. And you have to follow the golden ratio for the life to sustain for generation and generations. This is the most important point. Okay, so you’ve learnt a lot from the Mrityunjaya mantra. How the mantra is showing the fibonacci pattern, and the golden ratio. But, how is Mrityunjaya yantra related to the golden ratio? So, as we saw before the Mrityunjaya yantra is just a five-pointed star in its simplest form.

Let me clear this.. If you take this line, this is the longest line and let’s say we call this line XL okay? and the next long line would be this line let’s call this L okay? And if you take this line this is the

this is the next long line but let’s call this M okay? And this is the shortest line okay so this is let’s call this one S. So the ratio between XL and L will be the golden ratio. The ratio between L and M that will also be in golden ratio. The ratio between M and S, that will also be in golden ratio. This is extraordinary, and they have been using this for 5000 years in ancient Hinduism.

This is why I think Pingala did not discover the fibonacci series. He merely understood the concept of fibonacciseries and the golden ratio from ancient Indian texts. Now, remember the Mrityunjaya mantra and the Mrityunjaya yantra are coming from Rigveda which is at least 5000 years old. And you can see how the Mrityunjaya mantra and the Mrityunjaya yantra clearly point to the golden ratio and fibonacci numbers, and their connection with life itself. Today we use a modified form of this Mrityunjaya yantra, I will clear the board and I will show you how this works.

Okay in the last few centuries the Mrityunjaya yantra was modified, so families could work with the the modified version. This is called the MahaMrityunjaya yantra and again it’ll be a five-pointed start like this. And it will be surrounded by eight petals. The mantra has not changed, the same mantra is used even today. And some forms actually have three eyes of Lord Shiva, to denote Lord Shiva in the center and specific rituals are done on Trayodashi, which is the 13th day, okay? I don’t know if you’re followingthis, but all these are fibonacci numbers okay?

3 – that’s a fibonacci number. 5 pointed

star, that’s a fibonacci number. 8 petals, that’s a fibonacci number.

13, that’s a fibonacci number.

 Nobody is paying attention to this, but we’re following fibonacci numbers and using this for preservation and creating life. And if you divide one number by the previous number again you will get the golden ratio. No wonder when new religions came, they converted this into witchcraft, right? They said this is all the work of the devil. So this was the best way, and this was done deliberately to suppress ancient knowledge, by sort of demonizing this kind of information. In the west this is considered the symbol of witchcraft okay?

 Some people even say this is the symbol of satan or devil. But, this is the secret of life itself and it was known for thousands of years in ancient India. But there is one more sacred yantra and this yantra is done secretly in the hills of Javvadhu and it’s performed by a sect called Kaalamukha. There is a particular sect called Kaalamukha and they perform some secret rituals and it’s also based on Mrityunjaya yantra. This yantra is called the Kaala Mrityunjaya yantra.

 It’s very interesting, because if you go to Wikipedia and if you look up Kaalamukha, Wikipedia will tell you that this sect is extinct. These people no longer exist and Wikipedia will even claim that you know they paint their faces black. Because it says Kaala and many people think Kaala means just black okay? But Kaala also means time and also means death, and I’m sure you will understand the connection between time and death but the Kaalamukhas.. the word Kaalamukha is associated with time.

 So what type of yantra do these Kaalamukhas create? They create a yantra called the Kaala Mrityunjaya yantra. Let me clear this board and I’ll show you how this yantra looks. Okay, so what the Kaalamukhas will do, is they will clear a large plot of land in the woods, they will clear all the trees. And at midnight on a new moon day, they will create a simple five-pointed star like this and they will chant the Mrityunjaya mantra for 108 times. And after four and a half days around noon time, they will close this on all sides. So it will look like a pentagon. Again after four and a half days, they will again change this into a five-pointed star.

 Again after four and a half days, they will close this into a pentagon. Again after four and a half days, they will make this into a five-pointed star. Of course this is a very bad drawing because i’m not good at this. But they will continue this for 45 days and this is the Kaala Mrityunjaya yantra. And this is remarkable because it shows how a life grows with respect to time. Think about it, they start very small and as time proceeds, any species would grow according to the golden ratio and this is why every species is able to spread dramatically and fill up the planet.

 Think about human beings .. we have billions of human beings today, but at one point they would have been a small group of people. Why are they able to become the most dominant species on the planet? Why do we see human beings everywhere? Because they were able to grow in the fashion corresponding to the golden ratio. And people think there’s a new field of study in the last few centuries it’s called fractals okay? Fractal or fractals. And they think this is a new study but Hindus knew about fractals for thousands of years.

 Hindus not only knew the concept of fractals but also its connection with the golden ratio. Hindus called it Mandala. Now what is a mandala? You can see mandalas in ancient hindu temples and in also places where they practice hindu rituals. The mandalas are these fractal designs, there are many types of mandalas there are circular mandalas, and there are also square mandalas. For example, they’ll start a mandala like this. This is a square and they will continue to proceed making children.

 So they put a bigger square and they put a smaller square on all four sides. Again, they will continue to make even smaller squares on all four sides okay? And they use the golden ratio, they use the golden ratio of 1.618 to draw the mandalas. They actually take measurements and they use the approximate ratio of 1.6 because what happens if you don’t use the golden ratio? If you don’t use the golden ratio and if you make these squares too big, after a few continuations, these squares will start hitting each other because you’re not following the golden ratio.

What if you make these squares too small? The mandala will come to an end very quickly because it cannot sustain for a long amount of time, because these squares have become too small too soon.This is why the golden ratio was so important. Remember I told you this is relevant to plants and their leaves? If there’s very less number of leaves the plant will die. If there are lots of leaves again the plant will die because of overcrowding. Hindus are actually using this concept and this ratio in creating mandalas.

And it’s interesting because ancient hindus knew about this concept in drawing mandalas and today experts are working in fractals and now they recognize that the golden ratio is very important to design fractals. Because if you don’t follow the golden ratio the fractals do not survive. Okay, interestingly the fractal of a pentagon is 1.6 dimensional and that’s very strange because we normally tend to think of dimensions as whole numbers you can see 1-dimensional, 2-dimensional, 3-dimensional but what is 1.6 dimensional, right? And notice the connection between 1.6 and its proximity to the golden ratio as well.

 Now, this sort of goes beyond the scope of this video, but mathematicians confirm that the fractal of a pentagon is 1.6 dimensional. And i don’t know if you noticed this detail about the Kaala Mrityunjaya yantra? Why were they doing this ritual every four and a half days? It took me 10 years to figure out that four and a half days is 108 hours. Four and a half days comes to 108 hours which is a sacred number in Hinduism and the angle between two sides in a pentagon that will also be 108 degrees and the Mrityunjaya mantra will also be chanted 108 times every day while they’re doing these rituals.

 So youcan see how the 108 – which is another number for the basis of life, is consistently used in the Mrityunjaya yantra and mantra. And there is a lot of advanced vedic mathematics involved that we have not discussed. Let me clear the board and show you just a quick glimpse of what’s involved in that. Okay, so if you look at the Mrityunjaya yantra, one side will be 108 degrees and this will be 36 degrees, and if you add both of them together you will get 144.

And believe it or not, this is what Kaala means. Kaala is a unit of time that is 144 seconds. This is the ancient unit of time followed by Hindus. And it’s even more interesting because 144 is also a fibonacci number. It is the 12th fibonacci number. And this is just advanced esoteric knowledge, we’re just scratching the surface of ancient hindu mathematics, which is both science and spirituality.

Most people in the western world do not understand this. If you watch that movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, you see how there is a person who prays to Kaali which is the fiercest deity known in the world, right? Kaali is this big black deity which is usually shown killing somebody. but Steven Spielberg is not understanding the concept of Kaali. He doesn’t understand that it’s not only limited to Hindus or Indians. Kaali will kill Christians, Muslims and everybody alike. Especially if you make mistakes, Kaali will kill you sooner, because Kaali means time. Kaali is the personification of time. Time will kill you unless you use Mrityunjaya to create and sustain life.

Fibonacci Number – Is it a Hindu number used in Ancient India? Secret of Life | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, today we’re going to look at a number called the Fibonacci number and how this is a Hindu number which originally came from ancient India and this Fibonacci number is the basis of life itself. Now according to historians, the Fibonacci number was discovered around 1200 A.D – that’s about 800 years ago by an Italian called Fibonacci.

Fibonacci was not an Indian and he was also not a Hindu, he was an Italian and he was a Catholic so why is Fibonacci a Hindu number? First, we need to understand what is a Fibonacci number. Fibonacci number is a series of numbers like this. You may or may not include zero and you can start: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13… What is so special about this series? And this series goes forever. Why not just make up another series like this?

For example, why don’t we say 2, 4, 6, 10, 16? What is different between this series and this Fibonacci series? Fibonacci number was not a random number made up by human beings. It is the number of the Gods and this is the difference between life and death. What do i mean by that? Why do I say that the Fibonacci number is the number of the Gods? To understand the Fibonacci number and its connection to life, let’s take a look at one cell. Let’s just take one cell and let’s assume that this cell has just been born.

Before this there is nothing and then this cell has just been born. After two minutes, the cell becomes fully mature and after the cell becomes fully mature it gives birth to a new cell every minute. So in the first minute the cell is brand new. In the second minute the cell is one minute old,i’m putting one line for one minute old. In the third minute the cell would have been fully mature, so i’m putting two lines like this.

Now it would have given birth to another cell. Now in the fourth minute, this cell is fully mature, so it will give birth to another cell, but this cell would be one minute old. In the fifth minute the cell is already mature, so it gives birth to another one. Now this cell would be one minute old, this cell would be two minutes old. Because this is also mature this gives rise to another cell. Now, what happens at the sixth minute?

You can solve this problem in two methods, you can go on drawing circles and try to figure out how many cells will be there at the end of six minutes. Or you may have recognized a pattern already. Here this is 1 and here this is 1. The next level is 2. This is actually 1 + 1. This is 2. And in this level you see 3 cells which is actually 1 + 2. This is why this is 3 and at this level you can see this there are a total of 5 cells and you you can see that it is 2 plus 3 that’s 5.

So at the sixth minute your answer would be 8 because 3+5 is 8. This is the Fibonacci series and you may ask: do cells really replicate this way? Do cells multiply or divide like this? This is called the asymmetric cell division under optimal conditions. You can see the Fibonacci number not only atcell level, you can even see it in DNA SUPRA CODE.

Now what is the dna supracode? It is the organization of nucleic acid bases in a dna sequence. Nowyou can see the Fibonacci number in micro level in various places in a living organism. For example, you can also see it in the order of replication of dna in living cells. So you do see that there is a connection between the Fibonacci numbers and life itself. So Fibonacci number holds the key to life but do we need a microscope to see the Fibonacci number?

Let’s take a look at something we can see. Assume that i’m going to plant the seed in the soil, okay? so this is a seed that i’m planting in the soil. The first day, the root will grow a little bit and the second day the root grows a little bit longer. After that on the third day, it will still grow longer, but will split into two. And on the fourth day, one will just grow longer while the other will split

like this. This is kind of a weird drawing and who is going to actually look at how seeds grow in real time. Believe it or not, this is what ancient hindus were studying what is the point of this diagram? The point is, if you take it at any timeline, it will match the Fibonacci number. So here you can see 1, here you can see 1, here you can see 2, here you can see 3 and the root will grow further based on the Fibonacci number.

And not just the root, As above, so below.. so if you look at the stem or the trunk or shoot, again you will see the same pattern of Fibonacci numbers growing. So you can see the Fibonacci number in roots above the ground in stems or shoot. You can also see it in leaves you can see it in flowers, you can also see it in seeds. If you look at a sunflower, there are seeds arranged in the middle of the flower and they will always be in Fibonacci numbers. If you take a pineapple, and if you look at thescales, you’ll be surprised because the scales will always be in 5, 8, 13 or 21. All of these are Fibonacci numbers so you can understand that the fibonacci number not only occurs at micro level, it also occurs at macro level and this is not just limited to a plant or a tree. When the seeds disperse,even the seeds fall in fibonacci pattern.

So we’re looking at an entire orchard that is formed on the basis of Fibonacci numbers, an entire forest will be designed based on the Fibonacci number. This is why i call Fibonacci as the number of the gods but why do I call this amazing number, the Fibonacci number as a Hindu number? Fibonacci number was discovered 800 years ago by an Italian who was a Catholic but why do i call it a Hindu number?

Let me clear the board and let me explain it to you. So Fibonacci discovered this number around 1200 A.D, but 50 years before Fibonacci there was a great Sanskrit poet in India called Hemachandra around 1150 A.D. He was teaching some students about how to compose poetry. In Sanskrit syllables there are short syllables and there are long syllables. The short syllable is called Laghu and it takes one beat of time and the long syllable is called Guru and it takes two beats of time. Now, one of his students asks a question to Hemachandra. He says ‘there are 8 beats to fill up in a poem.

How many combinations are there to fill using Laghu and Guru? So think about this, so you have eight spaces you can fill. So you can take all short, for example. And you can also do all long for example. And you can also do short, long, short, long, and you can do a long, long, short. What do you think is the answer to this question? How many combinations do you think there are to be filling up these 8 spaces? Believe it or not, Himachandra gives an instantaneous reply. He starts by saying, add 1 + 1 and keep going and keep adding the consecutive numbers and the 8th number you get is the number of combinations you can use to fill up these 8 spaces. So he actually gives the correct answer that the 8th Fibonacci number is the number of combinations you can use to fill up these spaces.

At this point, two things could shock you: 1) if you know enough Indian history, you know Hemachandra was not a Hindu poet. He was a Jain poet he belonged to Jainism. The second thing that could shock you is that Hemachandra was only 50 years before Fibonacci. Fibonacci was publishing his book around 1200 A.D and Hemachandra was giving out this answer to his students about 1150 A.D, just about 50 years before Fibonacci. and that’s not a big deal, maybe these two people were contemporaries and they both had the same thoughts.

But I’m shocked by the 3rd aspect: why did Hemachandra give an instantaneous reply? And why was the answer so brief without explaining how he came to that conclusion? Why did Hemachandra did not take his time to explain how he arrived at the right answer to such a complicated question? Think about this when somebody asks you here’s a right angle triangle and one side is 1 foot

the other side is also 1 foot what is the length of the hypotenuse? To most people, they would really answer this as √2 and that would be the end of the conversation. Because we have 2500 years of Pythagoras theorem before us so we don’t find the necessity to explain the same thing over. We don’t really say this is one squared and this is one squared and if you add both the squares then it would be the result of it.

We don’t really explain it, we just give out the answer because we are sitting with 2500 years of Pythagoras before us. This is exactly what is happening with Hemachandra. Hemachandra is not explaining how he came to this conclusion, he is merely giving out the solution because Hemachandra did not discover the Fibonacci number. Hemachandra was sitting on thousands of years of knowledge of fibonacci numbers before him. The ancient Hindus knew about the Fibonacci numbers thousands of years before Hemachandra. At this point, some of you will say: Now Praveen, this is why YouTube bans you, this is why Facebook bans you, this is why Twitter bans you, because you exaggerate things. It’s one thing if you say Hemachandra gave the right to answer about Fibonacci number before Fibonacci in 1150 A.D, but why are you exaggerating this and saying that there was thousands of years of knowledge about Fibonacci numbers before Hemachandra? This is why you get banned because you exaggerate Indian history.

I have actual proof of this, there was a great mathematician called Pingala, he was a Hindu mathematician, he was living around 200 B.C. Some scholars even believe that he was living much older in time around 500 B.C, but most historians accept that he was living around 200 B.C and Pingala actually put the Fibonacci numbers in a text and he called the Fibonacci number as ‘Maatra Meru’. This is the original name of the Fibonacci numbers. If you look up the text of Pingala, you will be astonished because Pingala clearly lays out how the Fibonacci numbers work 2200 years ago, and not only that Pingala also discovered the Pascal’s Triangle.

Now, pingala really lays out how short syllables and long syllables fill up these spaces and he clearly explains the Fibonacci series as we know it today. Maybe this is too dull for you – short syllable, long syllable, Sanskrit, the old language. Maybe this is just too dull for you. If you’re young, you may think this is just too boring, so let’s switch gears. So let’s say you want to do some competitive exam, you want to take SAT, GRE, IIT exam, you want to do IPS or IAS and you will encounter a question like this.

So these are the steps in a staircase and you can take 1 step or you can take 2 steps. How many combinations can you use, if there are a total of 10 steps? The answer is the 10th Fibonacci number. This is a very complicated question you will encounter today, if you’re taking a very advanced exam. Believe it or not this is actually used in computer programming this is called Dynamic Programming, programmers use this. And the answer to all these complicated questions that you will face today were given by a Hindu mathematician 2200 years ago. This is why I call the Fibonacci number as a Hindu number which originated in ancient India.

Now you know that Fibonacci number was originally a Hindu number, but did Fibonacci steal this number, hide the sources, to promote himself? No, he did not. Why? Because his name is not Fibonacci at all. It’s very interesting because Fibonacci has written an amazing book called the Liber Abacci. It transformed the way Europe was doing business and mathematics, but Fibonacci never spoke about himself. In fact, most scholars are still debating about what his original name was, most people think his original name was Leonardo Bonacci but they’re still not sure. And Fibonacci was a very modest person and he did not promote himself.

Even better, Fibonacci gave full credit to the Hindu mathematical system. In fact in his book he called this new system as ‘Modus Indorum’ which means the ‘Method of the Indians’. In fact, Fibonacci goes one step further, he not only praises Hindu mathematical system, he even says when you compare the hindu mathematical system with Arabs and Pythagoras, Pythagoras seems almost like a mistake. This is incredible because Fibonacci is saying when you compare Pythagoras, who’s considered the father of mathematics by many people, when you compare Pythagoras with theHindu system Pythagoras seems almost like a mistake.

If somebody walks up to you and he says Pythagoras is a mistake you would think this person is nuts, but it is Fibonacci who is saying this. He was a great mathematician, so maybe he knew something that we don’t. And Fibonacci was a transformative genius, he did many transformations. He created a new world and we actually live in the new world that he created. Let me show you what he did, but first let me clear this board.

Around 1200 A.D, Fibonacci publishes a great book called Liber Abacci. This word means the abacus, the abacus is the instrument with strings and beads which is used in calculation. Maybe you can identify this from the word Library which means book. So many people think this means the book of abacus or book of calculation, and if you go to Wikipedia, even Wikipedia says ‘Liber Abacci’ means the ‘Book of Calculation’.

But the word Liber also appears in this word Liberate or Free. Fibonacci was using this word to say ‘Free the Abacus’. What does it mean? At that time in Europe, all the people were still using roman numerals and the abacus and they were doing all the calculations with abacus. Fibonacci, after studying the Hindu calculation system, wanted to change Europe, he wanted people to get rid of the abacus and start following the Hindu calculation system of using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This is called arithmetic.

So think about this, how do we do calculations today? So if i have to say, what is 15 + 16 how do i instantly know it’s 31? How do i know the answer is 31? 800 years ago before the time of Fibonacci, if you went to Europe and if you said what is 15 + 16, they would need an abacus and they would start working with the beads to come up with this number. Without using an abacus why am i able to do this using a marker and a board or even better, I knew the answer in my mind. So who invented this modern arithmetic? it was Brahmagupta, it was a great another great Hindu mathematician who lived around 600 A.D, so this is about 1400 years ago. And the modern arithmetic, the addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and all these numbers with the place value and doing all these complicated maths, was invented by Brahmagupta.

Today we follow the system around the world, but it was originally invented by another Hindu mathematician. And this method fascinated Fibonacci so much, he wanted the entire Europe to learn this type of calculation. He wanted people to free the abacus and stop using roman numerals and start using the Hindu arithmetic all over Europe. This was the purpose of Liber Abacci. Now, the Liber Abacci has many chapters which talks about various methods of Hindu calculation, this is why he called this Modus Indorum and the actual Fibonacci numbers is only a small part of this book. So what happens after Fibonacci publishes this book in 1200 A.D?

I told you Fibonacci was a transformative genius, he revolutionizes trade, commerce, business, banking, weights and measures, and he completely alters the system in Europe. Everybody in Europe was picking up this new method of calculation. Now think about this, before this book got published if you go to a bank and if you give them 50 bucks and if you ask for some change, everybody would literally pull out an abacus and they had to do the calculation to see how much

they have to give you. And Fibonacci changes this dramatically, the entire Europe gets revolutionized by this Hindu system. Now, how successful was Fibonacci in liberating the abacus? If you read history, it’s very interesting, because in the city of Florence in Italy, the bookkeepers actually passed a law saying that they should only use roman numerals and abacus and not use the new Hindu system.

And of course it did not work, because everybody switched to the Hindu mathematical system and the bookkeepers went out of business. So Fibonacci was amazingly successful in introducing the method of the Indians to Europe. In fact, some even believe it’s because of this new method, business became so big in Europe and they were able to accumulate so much wealth, they were able to conquer the entire world in a few centuries.

So at this point, there should be no doubt in your mind that the Fibonacci number originally came from ancient India and it was discovered by Hindu mathematicians, but there is another question: Did Pingala discover the Fibonacci number by himself? Or did he get it from an even more ancient Hindu source? Maybe we can take a look at this in the next video.

How did Ancient Indians Solidify Mercury at Room Temperature? Mystery of Mercury Lingam Revealed!

Is it possible to soldify Mercury at room temperature and make it into a lingam? Mercury does not become solid until frozen to an extremely low temperature. So how did ancient Indians make mercury lingams and place them in temples. In this video, I am going to attempt to make a Mercury lingam with natural materials. Let us see what happens.

WHAT IS THAT? Weird Ancient Carving Baffles Experts! Vittala Temple, Hampi | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, I want to show you a unique carving in the Vittala temple at Hampi. It is very small, but it is a mind-boggling carving, do you know what this carving shows? I have shown you several unique features about this temple. I have shown you the Musical pillars in this temple, which give a variety of sounds when tapped on, this temple also has the stone chariot and how its wheels rotate like real wheels, but this tiny little carving is not even looked at by most visitors.

What is this? Why does it look so strange? Indian temples are known for their spectacular carvings with crystal clear details, but this one is totally different. It does not have any clear features although we can see some of the details. And it is a very mysterious carving.

If you look from the top angle, you might be able to see a frog. This looks very much like a frog and you can see its head, body and limbs. Interestingly, mostly kids, who have not reached their teenage yet, will see the frog. Adolescents and adults rarely see the frog.

If you are a teenager, whether you are a boy or a girl, you will tend to see a snake. Here you can see the snake’s head, its curved body and its tail. So, in the same carving, you can see the frog, which is the prey and also the snake which is the predator. So why do kids see the frog, while teens observe the snake?

If you are an adult male, a man who is between the age of 20 and 50,  you would probably see that there is a monkey grabbing a baby monkey from the floor, as though the bigger monkey is protecting its baby. If you are a man watching this video, and you belong to this age group, this is probably the first thing you noticed. Oh a monkey lifting its baby. Am I Right?

And an adult woman will look at it completely differently. She will notice a mother monkey breastfeeding a baby monkey, of course this is a fantastic sight to see, how a little monkey is drinking milk from its mother.

But what about people who are above 50, what do they tend to see? They would notice this: This is a flying monkey God, You can see his 2 legs in the air and you can even observe his tail if you look carefully. He is none other than Lord Hanuman who is trying to serve others faithfully. And then, if you renounce all your worldly desires, if you are ready to face death without any fear, if you become a monk or a sanyasi who seeks enlightenment, you will see something very different. You will see this: A cylindrical lingam, protected by a giant snake on top. This is only observed by the very wise or the very old. It is very interesting how such a carving was done many centuries ago in India.

But why do people with different age groups, different sexes, see different images in the same carving? Is this Spirituality or Science? For Ancient Hindus Spirituality was Science. Ancient builders always blended Spirituality and Science in a beautiful way.

Today, there is a specific type of art called Ambiguous Images – these are used by psychologists to learn about your mind and body. Let’s take a look at this picture. What do you see? Believe it or not, the only thing a young kid will see, is a bunch of dolphins playing inside a giant bottle. The kid will not be able to see anything else and he will even point out that his observation is accurate, because even the tag on the bottle says Dolphins explicitly. On the other hand, adults will see something completely different and have to make a conscious effort to identify the dolphins. This image is used by psychiatrists to see if a child has hit puberty. Let me show you another classic one here: What about this one? What do you see? If you noticed the Skull first, you are reasonably aware of your surroundings and can spot dangers from a distance, but if you only saw the woman in the mirror, and did not see the skull at all, you are a hopeless romantic. But WHY is this happening? It is the same picture, but why do people see completely 2 different images? Because you are not really seeing with your eyes, you are seeing everything with your mind. And how your mind is conditioned, changes the information you see with your eyes. So you may think you are an objective person, but you are always processing all information with some filters, and these filters are based on your conditioning.

And if you noticed both images in these ambiguous pictures, you are a very intelligent person who has solid analytical skills. Optical illusions like these are shown to patients and psychiatrists can even identify mental illnesses like schizophrenia using these pictures.

But it is interesting to note that this ambiguity or optical illusion was used in many carvings of ancient India. I have shown you many optical illusions. This one is 1300 years old in Mahabalipuram. Do you see a cow? Or did you see some other animal? While most optical illusion carvings only show 2 different images, the one at Hampi is very advanced. It shows multiple images and you will typically see what you like to see, depending on your age or sex. If you are a father, you are more likely to see the image of a monkey lifting the baby monkey, a typical dad’s gesture of protecting a baby. If you are a mother, you are more likely to see the baby monkey getting breastfed, because this is the key for the baby’s life. So, you can see how ancient builders skillfully created this ambiguous carving many centuries ago in India, which  shows at least 7 different images. But wait, I only talked about 6 images. Yes, there is another image I did not tell you about. Did you see it? If you noticed it, you are a rare individual, so please do tell me what you saw in the comments section. If you did not see it, watch the video again, and see if you can find it. And then leave a comment.

INDIA’S HIDDEN SECRETS REVEALED? Evidence of Ancient Engineering Technology | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, today we are going to look at an ancient Hindu architect called Vishwakarman, and how everything we know about him is wrong.  This 900 year old carving shows Vishwakarman with multiple heads and holding various weapons – this is the standard explanation we get. But that is pure nonsense. If he has multiple heads, then how come the center head looks older while the other 2 heads show younger faces. And look at the weapon on the left, it is not a weapon at all, this head is actually looking into this device. Now who is Vishwakarman? According to Ancient Indian texts, Vishwakarman was the architect who engineered great cities like Dwaraka and Ancient Temples with insane perfection. An architect does not need weapons, so what is this device he is looking through? He is using a theodolite.

Now what is a theodolite? Have you ever wondered why you always see civil engineers standing and looking through something? That is a theodolite, it is similar to a small telescope. And look at the similarity of the modern theodolite and how the engineer is looking through it and how the ancient theodolite is shown and how this face is clearly looking through it. It is a perfect match. But what is the purpose of a theodolite? It is used to make sure that an area is perfectly flat or horizontally leveled before construction starts. In real life, most areas have horizontal differences and how do you make it flat? On one end of the site, you have the theodolite and on the other end, you must place a leveling rod or a leveling staff, which has markings. This is exactly what we see in the other hand in this statue. This is the leveling rod, of course the marking are gone now because of erosion, but it is quite visible in other carvings of Vishwakarman. For example it is clearly visible in this statue – This is from the Sun Temple at Modhera, built around 1000 years ago. Other statues as well show clear markings, I had initially thought it was just a simple ruler or a line gauge, but now it is clear that Vishwakarman was using a leveling rod and a theodolite to survey construction sites. Here you see another carving where he is clearly holding a leveling rod in one hand and a theodolite in the other hand.

If you look at ancient temples, one of the things we marvel about is, how they were able to achieve such flatness of the ground before they started construction. Even on mountain tops, they were able to create perfectly flat plane and then build temples. Now, we can fully understand how they achieved this. The ancient builders carved the details quite clearly, this is not a multi-headed god. They are showing multiple people working the same site, one guy is looking through the theodolite, the other guy is in charge of the leveling rod, and the older guy with the beard is the supervisor. Another 1000 year old statue shows the same iconography with 2 younger guys on the side holding the same devices with the older guy in the middle, this is quite clear how they have carved Vishwakarman. Remember how civil engineers make 3d drawings, these three faces could be indicative of that as well.

This is very interesting because we have always thought that Vishwakarman was one person, but perhaps it denotes a team of ancient engineers, just like how a team of engineers works on a site today. And I have been researching Vishwakarman for many months now, and I have seen various combination of faces in ancient temples. Sometimes All young faces, sometimes all older faces and sometimes a combination of both young and old.

Ok, so I have shown you how Vishwakarman achieved perfect horizontal level, in the X axis, but how did they achieve vertical perfection, in the Y axis. Because when you examine ancient Indian structures it is amazing how you never see tilted monuments, temple walls do not have any tilt, unless the builders wanted a tilt or a slope. Every angle was built perfectly. Now, what do we use to measure vertical perfection today? This is called a plumb bob, It has the shape of an onion or a top, like a spinning top with one half looking like a bulb and the other half with a pointed end.  And that’s exactly what we find in Vishwakarman’s hand. I have seen many many carvings and it is unbelievable, but what he is holding looks exactly like a plumb bob. What is even more surprising, today we have mechanized plumb bobs, we can push a button with one finger, and the string comes out. But they must have used the same button system in ancient times as well. Look at his finger. Why is he shown with one finger on a specific spot? I am sure some will argue that it is device is just a pot of water or something basic. If so, why does he have to use one finger like this? This detail is not shown in this carving alone, I have seen carving after carving, it clearly appears that he is using one finger, like how we push a button today.

And if you look at this device he is holding in the same hand, this is just a long cylinder and see how this is going into the ground. This is a soil probe, which detects the strength and nature of soil before we start construction. Today, we use a soil probe which is exactly like this, a long cylinder which goes into the ground, and then we can examine the soil sample. We have archeological evidence that soil tests were constructed 1000 years ago, we have inscriptions proving this. The Brihadeeswara temple in Tanjavur was constructed at its site after doing extensive soil tests in various areas. And this location was chosen because the soil was very good.

In his other hand, we can see a beaded mala or rosary which was used to calculate the sacred geometry using number 108. I have explained the importance of 108 and how it was used in Indian architecture in a different video.

Ok now, we saw everything about pre-construction tools, but what about the construction itself? How did they construct these impossible structures? The answer lies in what Vishwakarman is holding in his other hands. He is shown holding a strange tool which looks very advanced. It appears to have several twists and turns, it must be some sophisticated technology we still do not have. Think about our human mind, we are only able to recognize that this is an ancient theodolite because we have re-invented the theodolite in modern times. Otherwise, we will think this is just a knife or something like this. We can only understand what we have already seen. So if we have not invented an advanced instrument like this yet, we won’t be able to understand it, but may be in the future, someone will create such a device and then we will recognize what this really is.

While some carvings show this device with twists and turns, In other statues he is shown holding a dome like device. But strangely, almost all these devices have a split bottom, they don’t have one rod, but two split rods, resembling a tuning fork. Today we have just begun to understand the power of vibrations and sound, but is it possible that the ancient builders were far more advanced than us and were using resonance devices? Were they able to manipulate sound and construct these extraordinary temples?

I have just started to uncover the secrets of the ancient architects called Vishwakarman. It is very hard to differentiate Vishwakarman and the creation God Brahma because they are both depicted with similar features in many temples, and in ancient Hindu texts as well. The name Vishwakarman itself means ‘The One who created The World”. Is it possible that they were the original group of architects who engineered the entire human civilization? Is this why we were able build incredible structures like Kailasa Temple?

Our current understanding of ancient Indian history is very limited because we are looking down on the ancient builders, we are assuming they were less sophisticated than we are. So people automatically dismiss ancient devices as simpler meaningless objects, if they see a depression, they will say it is a spoon, and if it is blunt, they will say it is a weapon. So what do you think? Did ancient builders use advanced technology in India? Or was everything constructed with primitive tools?

They are UNEARTHING SOMETHING STRANGE all over ASIA! What is Going On? | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, in my previous video I showed you how plenty of lingams and other ancient statues were unearthed in India. But in this video, let’s go outside India and see if archeologists found anything related to Hinduism? This brilliant Pink colored giant lingam was found, not in India, but in the country of Vietnam. Vietnam is thousands of miles away from India, but there is no doubt that this is a Lingam, with a cylinder in the center and the base called Yoni. This was found just 2 months ago. Archeologists confirm that this is at least 1100 years old, it is made of one solid rock, it is a monolithic lingam. This looks so fantastic, it is so smooth and so beautiful that you want to go and touch it.  You can see that it was clearly buried under the ground, and you can also see how archeologists do the excavation, everything is done very methodically. And you may wonder, why does Vietnam, which is so far away from India, have this Hindu artifact buried underground? I will tell you why, but before that,

I wanna show you another strange lingam unearthed in Vietnam. This was excavated a few years ago, in a different site.  Look at this, look at the colors of this lingam, this is so strange. This lingam is even older than the pink lingam you saw before, and archeologists say it can even be from 4th century A.D. That means, it could be 1700 years old, and look at the lingam, the cylinder, I mean what kind of stone is this, and how did they achieve this level of polishing in ancient times? The cylinder is made of a different type of stone, the base is made of a reddish stone, and there are probably blocks of white sandstone beneath that, and then that is surrounded by bricks. So very very complicated and perfect engineering was used 1700 years ago.  But this is not the only statue found here, there are many statues, this is the elephant God Ganesha, you can see from the outline of its head and ears. There are many other lingams found in the same site. Archeologists say that they found a lingam made of crystal quartz weighing about 3.5 tons. 3.5 tons – that is more than 3000 kilograms or 7000 pounds. Vietnam has declared that it is the largest precious gemstone found in the entire country. And remember I told you that a giant crystal lingam also existed in the country of Cambodia, in a place called Koh Ker. The original name of Koh Ker was Lingapura, which actually means the city of lingams.

In this area, in Cambodia, there are ruined lingams found everywhere. We can find destroyed lingams on the ground. But there are hundreds of ruined lingams in very bad state. You see this lingam, it is inside a ruined temple. It’s bottom half has been cut off manually, somebody used a strong metal tool like a pick axe or a crow bar and just repeatedly kept hitting this, until it became like this. It is a miracle that this lingam is still standing today. This is a thousand year old lingam, such precious ancient artifacts are lying in complete ruins in Cambodia. No one can even approach this lingam because the entrance to the temple itself is ruined. Now, there are not only lingams on the ground in this area, but also many lingams lay buried underground.

I have shown you giant lingams in Cambodia, these lingams are massive, but the lingams they are recently discovering is just mindboggling. Look at this one, this was found recently in the woods, and it is  roughly one thousand years old. What is this structure? It is very likely that this is a yoni or the pedestal for a lingam. See how many people are standing on it, understand the size of this lingam. A giant cylinder would have been placed inside the square hole in the center originally. That lingam would easily stand about 20 feet tall from the ground level.  I have shown you repeatedly that the cylinders were always destroyed by later civilizations. This lingam was also specifically destroyed. Cambodia is unearthing at least one new lingam every month, this lingam was unearthed recently. Cambodians are also unearthing many many Hindu artifacts, this is a turtle, known as Kurma in Sanskrit, this was found just a few weeks ago, buried in dirt.

Going back to the question: why are these lingams and other Hindu artifacts found far away from India? I mean Cambodia and Vietnam, are thousands of miles away from India, these countries are not even sharing their borders with India. So why are these Hindu structures found here? The short answer is, Vietnam and Cambodia were part of the same Hindu civilization during ancient times. This entire area which is now split into many countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand,  Indonesia and Malaysia, they all used to be a Hindu civilization. I found a map which is 150 years old, which shows the extent of Ancient Hindu culture. This was created by an American geographer called Samuel Mitchell. He called this entire area as the Farther India or Hindoostan.  If you look at this, he shows how the Hindu culture extended to almost all of South East Asia. So, this is the reason why  archeologists are unearthing so many Hindu artifacts in this region.

Now, the artifacts I showed you are only samples from this region, I have not even touched some countries, like Malaysia for example. Malaysia has unearthed hundreds of lingams, this was found in Bujang valley, and they also found lots of pedestals or Yoni, most of them are all kept in Museums now, but the cylinder parts are all gone. This is another Hindu pedestal found in Malaysia. There are statues and even portions of temples, like pillars, found underground. Believe it or not, Malaysian archeologists now say they have found the oldest manmade structures in South East Asia dating back to 110 A.D, that is more than 1900 years old. And there lots of  temples lying underground waiting to be uncovered in Malaysia. Malaysian archeologists now want the entire Bujang Valley which stretches for 86 square miles to be designated as a UNESCO world heritage site. Because this entire valley, is probably full of buried lingams and other artifacts.

If you really think about it, this is very confusing, why are we finding so many lingams underground? Even in an ancient Hindu civilizations, it is reasonable only to find a few religious artifacts, but it appears as though everywhere you dig, you find a lingam. Experts also confirm that many times, when locals dig their land and find a lingam, they will quietly destroy it because they don’t want their land taken over by archeology department.

In the country of Indonesia, they were digging for foundation in the middle of a big city, and they found this lingam, it is estimated to be 1000 years old.   Archeologists think that there are possibly more lingams buried underneath this entire region, but they cannot excavate this area, this place has a University and other new structures built here.

The sheer number of lingams excavated from the ground is very odd and I have only shown you only a small fraction of these excavated lingams. If lingams were just religious structures, you should not find it everywhere you dig, you should not find it in these numbers. So why are lingams found everywhere underground? Is it possible that there is some scientific reason why ancient people were using these lingams everywhere?

They found WHAT underground? Strange Ancient Artifacts Unearthed in India| Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, today we are going to talk about some shocking ancient artifacts  found in India. Let’s watch this clip.  The person who sent me this clip claims that this was found in an archeological site called Keeladi, however I do not think that this was found in that site. Keeladi is a protected archeological site and only archeologists can dig in that site. Just by looking at how hundreds of people are pulling up this ancient statue, we can understand it was found somewhere else, accidentally while digging the ground for house construction or a water well. Most archeological finds are done accidentally by locals, you can see how excited people are. This is definitely an antique statue, probably around a thousand years old.   This statue shows Shiva, in a specific form called Nataraja, and bronze statues of this style mostly belong to the period of Imperial Chola dynasty who ruled about a 1000 years ago.

Ok so you just saw a mesmerizing statue of Shiva buried underground and is being revealed after centuries of burial. But in a city called Nellore, an entire  temple was buried and it has come out last week. You can see all of them wearing masks because of Covid19.  This was an accidental discovery, they were sandmining, they were trying to take the sand for commercial purposes from this area, and they accidentally found a huge temple completely buried. You can see these 2 guys, removing the sand, and you may think this was the ground level. No, these guys are standing almost on top of the temple tower. You can see how they are casually revealing a deity set up on the tower. Where is the temple entrance? It is buried in the sand.  Now they used the giant excavators and they uncovered this entrance. The machine is going in and removing the sand from the original entrance of the temple.

Finally, you can see the ground level of the temple. That’s the entrance to the temple. When we look at the close up of the ground level, you can see the temple is made of bricks and you can see the plastered walls. The walls are relatively untouched and have not undergone much damage. And you can see there are more chambers inside as well, there are more walls inside. Let us go near the entrance and take a peek at what’s inside. Brick walls and brick doorway.   Locals say this is a Shiva temple and they have found a lingam inside. When we look at the close-up of the tower, you can see that it is also built with bricks and has been plastered with lime mortar.

Important archeological finds have been made in Ayodhya, which is the Birthplace of Lord Rama, and also the location of King’s Baburs Mosque known as Babri Masjid. But before we look into this, we are going to look at some fascinating ancient artifacts revealed in a small village called Arasinakere. What they found here is very strange. Two giant monolithic bull statues, the bull, known as Nandhi is the mount of Lord Shiva. And usually, you should just find one Bull, but surprisingly you see a pair of bulls. The bigger one is about 15 ft in length and 12 ft in height, so this is gigantic and the other one is just a little bit smaller. This excavation was also not started by archeology department, the villagers found it, and then they informed the authorities. These bulls are unfinished.  How do I know this, right? Because, look at the eyes, you don’t see the eyeballs, the eyes are not finished. It is a custom in India, to open the eyes at the very last, you finish sculpting everything, and then you carve the eyeballs. This practice is still followed by Hindu sculptors. And look at the texture of the stone surface, plenty of tool marks and polishing has not begun.   It would be a good guess to think that there are giant lingams buried nearby. At least 2 of them. Perhaps this was a manufacturing site for the sculptors, and they could have abandoned it for some reason.

In India, everywhere you dig, you find ancient statues. Now that all of us have cell phones with cameras, more things are coming to light. You see what this is? This is a 5 headed snake, a monolithic stone statue of Naga being excavated from dirt. This was found recently , it happened just a few weeks ago. I have shown you large Naga statues, commonly guarding a lingam.

The next one is Ayodhya, Most Indians know about this, but if you are watching this from outside India, it is a very important site, because this is considered the birthplace of Lord Rama, and it once had a huge temple complex.  The Muslim king Babur captured this site, demolished it and built a mosque on top, roughly 500 years ago. This mosque was demolished by Hindu groups in 1992 because they wanted to rebuild Rama’s Temple. And this was a huge lawsuit which got recently resolved, and the court has given the site to build the Ram Temple.

Now,  recent excavations show a lot of buried ancient artifacts in this site. Many many pillars have been excavated, a 5 foot Lingam has been unearthed, many female dancing figures have been foundd. The main factor here is that many people do not believe that this site originally had an ancient Hindu temple. They believe that King Babur did not demolish any temple and built the mosque on a completely fresh ground,  and it is merely a folklore that it was the birthplace of Lord Rama. Many people still believe that Hindus destroyed the mosque by falsely claiming that there was once a temple here.  However, recent excavations clearly prove that a Hindu temple existed originally. But archeologists had already found hundreds of stone artifacts which clearly establish that there was a huge temple here. For example, they found a giant Amalka. What is an Amalka? If you look at Hindu temples, there is a huge disc right below the kalash, this is called the amalka. They found a giant amalka on site, which clearly proves a temple existed. They have found hundreds of artifacts ,all of them parts of temples, they found crocodile faced water spout, this is called Makara Pranaalay, and actual portions of the temple tower itself were excavated.  My problem is, the Government should release good quality videos and pictures of these excavated artifacts, this is just really bad quality.

Now, I have shown how many ancient Hindu artifacts coming out of the land, but this is not limited to land, they are also mysteriously coming out of water. This lingam started showing itself just a few days ago. It is an amazing sight to see. See how it is covered in moss, but it has been beautifully carved. Locals started to come in large numbers and started worshiping it, because they know that this lingam is only visible very rarely. The water level usually does not get this low to reveal the lingam, and the water immediately started rising again and the lingam was submerged again in just a few hours. Now this is in the very south of India, far away from Ayodhya, but this is also connected to Lord Rama. This city is called Rameswaram, meaning the ‘Lord of Rama’, and locals say all these ancient lingams were actually built by Rama and his wife. It is said that they worshiped these lingams.

And Rameswaram is not the only place where ancient lingams are submerged. There are many places in India, where lingams lie submerged. They only reveal themselves very rarely, when the water level goes to the extreme low level. Only some people get lucky enough to see these lingams, and only very few videos exist, because they go underwater within a few hours.

I hope this was of some value to you, but there is a mystery involved. All these sites are linked somehow to Lord Shiva.  I have shown several artifacts underground and even underwater, but they are lingams, or statues or temples related to Shiva. Even the birthplace of Lord Rama has a 5 foot tall lingam. Why? Think about why Shiva lies buried everywhere?

If This Pillar Collapses, World Will End Tomorrow? Ancient Kedareshwar Cave Temple | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, today we are going to look at a strange temple which can foretell the end of the world. Recently some people have claimed that the Mayan Calendar actually indicates that the world will end tomorrow, on June 21st. Will the world end tomorrow? What does Hinduism say about this?

There is an ancient place called HarishChandraGad, which has many ancient temples and some of the structures are permanently submerged in water. You can see steps going in but you cannot see what is underneath. But the highlight is ,there is a very old cave temple here called Kedareshwar temple. Inside this temple there is a huge lingam which is almost always surrounded by water. This lingam looks small, but it is about 5 feet tall, and the water is waist deep.

But there is something truly miraculous. There are 4 pillars originally built around the lingam, and you can see 3 pillars are broken and are hanging in mid air, these are clearly hanging without any support.  How can a pillar hang in mid-air without any support? How is this possible? If you look closely, it appears that the structure is made out of one solid rock, and all the pillars have been carved out of a single rock, perhaps this is why they are still able to hang even though the bottoms have been destroyed.

But how were the 3 pillars destroyed? According to Locals these were not destroyed by human beings, or even nature.  Only one pillar will collapse every many thousands of years, due to divine intervention. They claim that every time a pillar collapses a Yuga will end. Now what is a Yuga? A Yuga is an Era in Hinduism and there are 4 Yugas mentioned in ancient texts. And we are in the last Yuga now, very near to the end of the world. In the past, every time one of the pillars collapsed, it marked the end of a Yuga. So if this last pillar also collapses, this last Yuga will also end, and the entire world will be destroyed. Now, how will the world end? A God known as Kalki will arrive from the sky and will destroy our already corrupted world.

Of course, modern historians do not agree with this theory at all, and say this structure itself was built only in the 7th century, and claim this is just 1300 years old.  But archeologists have found something shocking, they have found Microlithic artifacts in this area. Now, what is a Microlith? A Microlith is a very small stone tool made by prehistoric people and archeologists now say this place was inhabited by human beings even as far as 35,000 years ago. Their findings prove that Harishchanragad is definitely a very ancient and even prehistoric site, but locals say that this temple is even older than all these dates. And more evidence of even older structures can be found in the nearby hilltop called Kaal Bhairav Pinnacle. Kaal Bhairav itself means The Eternal Time Keeper, I have shown you Kaala or Time, playing a very important part in Hinduism. Perhaps he can tell us when the our time will end.

Will the world really end tomorrow, so we can stop social distancing today? Even if you do believe in the end of the world concept, this pillar is still standing as of today, it has not fallen down. So, the world will go on, but there is a similar belief about a structure in Sri Lanka also, which I will show you tomorrow. That might give us a clue if the world will end soon.

Ancient Carving Shows EARTH is NOT ROUND| Why Hinduism Supports FLAT EARTH Model? | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, today we are going to find out what ancient Indians thought about the shape of the earth. Did they think the earth was flat? Or did they think the earth was round? First, Let us look at this visual, created according to an ancient Indian text.

This is the flat earth model, it is made of up of 7 concentric oceans and land masses distributed on a flat plane. At the very center, you can see a beautiful  island called Jambudweep, and you can see a golden mountain rising up like a cylinder, resembling the axis pole. So the flat disk is made of land and water, and at the end of this disk, there are large mountains surrounding this flat earth. This is a very interesting model, to see this giant wall surrounding the edge of the flat earth, because this is how the new flat earth model looks. According to Flat earth supporters, the earth looks like a flat disc, and its edges are protected by a giant arctic wall made of ice. There are photos of these ice walls on the internet. The resemblance between the new model and the ancient Indian model is uncanny, even though the ancient text which talks about this is at least 1000 years old. I could not find the original source for this animation, because this was sent via email, and I would gladly give credit for the original creator, so email me if this is your video.

There is another fascinating detail in this model, it shows the Sun and Moon moving around in the sky, in chariots, this is also very interesting, because this is the same detail in the modern flat earth model as well. Of course, without the chariots and horses. According to modern flat earth theory, the earth is stationary and the Sun and Moon are moving around it. In ancient India, several texts and stories talk about the flat earth model.

Now, why does Hinduism have to talk about the shape of the earth? Because there is a particular story where Lord Vishnu takes the form of a giant wild boar and he lifts up the earth. This is a very popular story, and it is carved in many ancient temples. We are actually quite lucky to have this Hindu Story, because it helps us understand what the ancient builders thought about the shape of the earth. Because of this story, the sculptors carved the earth, in many many ancient temples, and I always try to see how the earth looks, in the point of view of ancient sculptors. And I have also been disappointed many times because, the earth is mostly shown as a woman. So you cannot tell if the sculptor thought of the earth as flat or round. The Boar here is Lord Vishnu and he is lifting up the earth, the earth is called Bhu in Sanskrit. In Mahabalipuram, which is a very ancient site, Vishnu is shown holding the earth in his arms, the earth is shown as a young girl. This type of holding the earth in his hands is also a very popular depiction. Again, this does not tell us if the ancient sculptor thought of the earth as flat or round

So does Hinduism subscribe to the Flat Earth Theory? Before going into this, we have to look at another fancy theory that existed in Ancient India: Concave Earth theory. In this theory, some ancient Hindus thought that the earth looked like a hollow bowl. It is a very interesting view, that the earth is visualized as a concave structure. This is an ancient statue and you can see this figure holding a concave bowl like thing in his hands. Experts are not sure if this represents Vishnu, some say this is the Ape God Hanuman, but there are also other depictions which show the concave earth model.

I have shown you 2 theories from Ancient India, one is the flat earth and the other is the concave earth model. Why do we see these 2 models in ancient India? Because it is very hard to come to terms with  the globe earth model. Let’s face it, the first time someone told you the earth was like a ball, your first question was, Why are we not falling down? How do you walk on the curved surface of a ball, why don’t we see the curve at all?

Let me ask you this: When you were a kid did you intuitively understand and accept when someone told you the earth was round?  For me, personally, I remember it was impossible to understand the round earth theory for many years. When you hear that the earth is not only round, but is also spinning at an insane speed, we don’t feel like we are moving at all.

So what did the ancient Hindus really believe? The most important point to remember is that, there was more freedom of speech in ancient India than what we have now. There were several schools of thought and you could believe in whatever you wanted. Today if somebody says the earth is flat then everybody wants to ridicule him or try to convince him with various evidences. But ancient India had much more freedom of speech, you could come up with any theory, and even if your theory flies in the face of the established theory, you were free to hold your ideas. The second most important thing was that Hinduism did not have one central authority at any given time. So, there was no real head of the religion, in fact Hinduism was just a way of life, it was just a civilization, which had multiple heads and tails, and of course this is one of the reasons why no one could completely destroy the religion.. Because it was like a thousand headed Naga.

Now, let us look at the round earth model in Ancient Hinduism.  Here you can see Vishnu as a boar, and you can see the earth right here, depicted as a sphere, standing on an axis, pretty much like a modern day globe. Here is another one, this is also an ancient carving, and you can see the spherical earth floating right next to the boar. In fact, there are many carvings which do show the earth as round. So it is clear that Hindus did have a round earth model as well. This is why the earth was commonly called ‘Bhugola’ which means Round Earth in Sanskrit.

But is the earth really round? Like a ball? No it is not, the earth is not round, it is not like a ball at all. About 300 years ago, Isaac Newton first proposed that the Earth was not perfectly round. Instead, he suggested it was an oblate spheroid. What is an oblate spheroid? It is like a ball that is squashed at its poles and swollen at the equator. So the earth is actually like an oval shaped structure, like an egg, but here is the twist, Newton was not the first person to understand this.

Look at this carving in India, this is a 750 year old carving found in Somnathpur temple and it shows the accurate oblate spheroid shape. The statue is unmistakable, this is Lord Vishnu in the form of a boar, and he is holding the earth, and the earth is not even shown as a sphere, it is shown as an oval. Now, remember, in modern science, North is shown pointing up, but in Hinduism, North is usually shown in the right side, which means the North-South axis is shown horizontally. So this carving, accurately shows how the earth is a little bit flattened at the poles and swollen at the Equator. And yes, archeologists do confirm that this statue was carved 750 years ago. How is this possible? Think about this, how did a sculptor, understand the level of astronomy and physics of a genius like Isaac Newton, 400 years before Newton?

The sculptor probably read an ancient text called Markandeya Purana. And this text, which is about 1500 years old, tells us that the earth is not a perfect sphere and it is flattened at the poles and bulging at the equator. Which means someone figured this out 1200 years before Isaac Newton discovered this. This is mind boggling!

Now why did ancient Indians have so many theories side by side, even though these theories completely contradict one another? Because in order for a society to advance rapidly, all theories must be examined and re-examined. I mean this video by itself, shows you some alternate view, it shows alternate history, that the oval shape of the earth was not first discovered by Isaac Newton, it was known before him, and we even have archeological evidence to prove this as a fact. But because this carving is found in India, nobody is talking about this, and I think I am the first person to show you that this carving shows the oblate spheroid theory before Newton proposed it. But this is alternate history, okay? And of course some people will call it fake, even though I am showing you this evidence right in front of you.

And 100 miles from this temple, there is another temple called Hoysaleswara temple, it shows a figure holding a telescope, looking into the sky, with one eye closed and the other eye looking through the device. I mean it is obviously a telescope. Archeologists confirm that this was carved about 900 years ago, but in history books, and even science books, we read that Galileo and Lippershey invented the telescope just 400 years ago. So right now, this carving is a part of alternate history, because it goes against the mainstream history which claims that the telescope was invented 400 years ago. But someday, this evidence will be taken into account, and then it will become mainstream theory. So a free society, must allow all alternate theories freely, in order to reach the ultimate truth.

Now, is Praveen Mohan the greatest alternate theorist? Absolutely not. I know YouTube deletes my videos, it demonetizes my videos. It will probably not show you this video on your feed, because it thinks this video is also a conspiracy theory. But my work is nothing when compared to the work of a great alternate theorist. You know who I am talking about? It was Galileo.  Let us go back 400 years and look at the life of Galileo in Europe. Galileo publishes a crazy alternate theory at that time. He claims that the earth is round, it moves around the sun, and the sun is the center of the Solar system. I mean this is mainstream science now, but at that time it was a huge alternate theory. You know what happened to him when he published this theory? The authorities, put him in house arrest for the rest of his life, he basically could not go out of his house for 10 years and he died in his house. And then, the authorities did something even more vicious, they tried their best to suppress all his findings, and his books were banned, and no one was allowed to talk about his alternate theory. This is really scary, but history is repeating itself.

400 years later, the tables have turned, literally the exact opposite is happening. Galileo’s alternate theory has become mainstream now, and the flat earth has become the alternate theory, but Round Earth Theorists, are not only ridiculing the Flat Earth Theorists, but they are actually trying to suppress information about Flat Earth Theory.

For example, YouTube has put in an algorithm to suppress Flat Earth videos. This is a screenshot from the official YouTube blog. Try searching for Flat Earth videos, YouTube will not show you, the people who actually talk about Flat Earth, it will show you videos which oppose the flat earth theory. And this is very interesting to watch, how Social Media like YouTube and even the scientific community suppresses Flat Earth Theorists with an iron fist.

And we can understand something from this, we have not changed much in the last 400 years. In a truly free society, people must be allowed to examine and re-examine anything they want. You can disagree with them, but if you are going to suppress the alternate point of view, that is not only wrong, that is barbaric. And I think this is the big difference between us and Ancient Indians, they were just more civilized than us, and anybody was free to believe anything.

Why is Flat Earth theory so popular, right? Because you cannot demonstrate this easily to make me understand that the earth is round. The shape of the earth is a unique issue, let’s take some other problem that we don’t understand intuitively. Let’s say someone claims that white light is not made of different colors, you can literally do a  demonstration and prove it to them, right in front of their eyes.

But you cannot easily demonstrate and prove the shape of the earth, you can infer this indirectly from some experiments, or you have to choose to believe the scientists. So, that is exactly what we do today, most of us, just choose to believe scientists. I have not physically traveled to space and seen the earth’s surface from the space, I have only seen videos given by the scientists. So I believe that the earth is round, even though I have never seen it with my own eyes. So you too have a choice of believing the scientists or not believing them, but a free society must allow free thinking. It can teach us how to think,  but it cannot limit information and it cannot tell us what to think.

AUM = INFINITY? Built a MANTRASCOPE to SEE Ancient Sounds! Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, is it possible to see Mantras? What is a Mantra? Mantras are sacred sounds mentioned in Ancient Hindu Texts and even today, thousands and thousands of people chant these mantras during meditation, rituals etc. But is it possible to visually see how these Mantras look?

So my friend and I have been trying to visualize the Mantras and we have built this device and let me show you what this is. It is basically a nice vibrating piece of latex or rubber stretched over the mouth of a long cylinder, and we have put a simple mirror in the center of the latex in front of it. This cylinder is hollow , there is nothing inside, when you look at it from the other side. Now here is a laser pointer and I am going to adjust the laser so that the laser light falls exactly on the center of the mirror. The light from the laser pointer starts here, hits the mirror and is now reflected on to the wall on the opposite side, ok? The light just looks like a dot on the wall, because the latex and the mirror are stationary, they are not  moving right?

Now, If make a sound through this cylinder, for example I chant a Mantra, watch what happens to the light pattern on the wall. So, let’s try some Ancient Mantra through this device and see how this Mantra looks visually, ok? The mantra I am going to try now is called Shreem, this is the Mantra  of Goddess Lakshmi, ok? So let me try chanting the Mantra: Shreem. Shreem. Shreem. Shreem. Shreem.

Ok, you are  looking at the visual representation of the Mantra, I believe this is the first time we are visually seeing how ancient Mantras really look. And this is very very interesting, I am turning off all the lights and showing it to you, because you can see how the Shreem Mantra looks in Close Up.

And this is very very interesting to watch, but Because it is not a static frequency, I am  basically chanting a mantra which has a beginning and ending, you can see that the pattern appear for a second and then disappear when the Mantra ends, right? So it is very hard to catch it because it disappears before you can fully grasp it. Now, we are actually looking at the visual representation of the Mantra, ok? How is this happening?

When I chant a mantra through this cylinder, the Sound waves move through the air onto this flexible solid which also picks up the waves. Now I have transferred the sound from air to solid medium, because I can see the solid, unlike the air, but I still can’t see it clearly. So I have attached this mirror to the flexible latex, so the mirror will also vibrate at the same frequency. Now, the light that’s reflected from the mirror will also change because of the sound waves.  So the sound waves or frequency sent through the cylinder can be seen visually on the wall.

Now, I am going to test the sound of Aum Mantra on this device, but before that, Why did I even think of building this Mantrascope? Why am I testing these Mantras? What is a Mantra? A Mantra means uncorrupted or unpolluted sound in its purest form. Mantras are usually chanted 108 times to gain several advantages, there is a specific type of Mantra called Beej Mantras or Seed Mantras, they are considered the seeds of everything. You chant them 108 times, to gain physical strength, to attain a meditative state of mind, and gain a lot of other physical or spiritual advantages.

What is the difference between these Seed Mantras and other sounds? These Mantras are special, vibrating sounds beyond human interpretation, they are purely sounds without any meanings. Now, what do I mean by this?

I am talking to you, right now, these are all sounds I am making with my vocal cords and you are able to understanding the meaning of it. Right now, you are only focusing on understanding the meaning of what I am saying. Your mind is not paying attention to the sound itself, because it is busy translating the sounds into meanings.  Now suddenly if I say ‘KLEEM SHREEM HROUNG’ there is a complete blank in your mind.  Your mind is just puzzled. Because there is no meaning for these sounds at all. You no longer look at the meaning itself, and you have to absorb the Sound as it is. And this is the main effect of Seed Mantra, using the sound as it is, not the meaning, but the sound itself is used for the benefit of your mind, your body and for many other benefits. The field of Mantra is a very important scientific study done by ancient Indians, they were able to document the effect of pure sounds on the body, the mind and nature itself.

And of course you can ask, is this really science, isn’t this some fuzzy religious theory? Do we have actual scientific evidence that sounds alter your mind and body? I think it is fairly easy to understand that sounds alter your state of mind, this is why we love music, and you also listen to music in a totally different language which you don’t understand the meaning of the words . Someone plays the violin a certain way and you will automatically go back to your past and start thinking of all the mistakes you made. If a bird gives out a fabulous mating call, you become romantic, even though you are not a bird. So it is not hard to understand that sounds alter your state of mind.  But do sounds really have an effect on your body?

In 1957, a Russian Born Scientist by the name of Vladimir Gavreau was working in France. As he and his team mates were working in a lab in the city of Marseille, all of them, started to get fever, headaches and nausea and they vomited multiple times a day, sparking the fear that they had all caught an infectious disease. But when everybody went home and stayed home, the mysterious illness went away and everyone became healthy. But then they all returned back to this lab and they all got sick again. This was a physics labs, there were no chemicals or live animals or something like that. So they realized something was going on in that building that was making them sick, and they eventually found out that large cooling fans were newly installed and they were generating low-frequency sound waves, which was making everyone sick. When they got rid of the fans, everyone became normal.

Now, Vladimir became so intrigued by this event that sounds can affect your body, he invented the very first sonic weapon. A weapon that creates sound to kill people. It was called ‘Canon Sonique’ and the French Military at that time tried to use it, unsuccessfully, because they could not find out a way to focus these sound waves only on their enemies. So the people operating this device could also die, just like their enemies, because the sound waves travel everywhere. Wikipedia says Vladimir patented his prototype, and we can still find it in the French Patent Office. Ok so, it is a scientific fact that sounds can alter your body… and mind, it is not a myth. Ancient Hindus used the same concept and created Mantras. By chanting certain sounds in certain frequencies  you can alter the mind, and body.

Now let us try Aum and see how it visually looks ok? Because Aum is considered the Mantra of all Mantras. It is considered the frequency of all beginnings and ends. So let me just chant the Aum Mantra through this cylinder and see what happens, let’s find out.

Aum. Aum. I can see something like an infinity guys..I don’t know. I could see..a sign like an infinity…which is weird.Aum…You see this, this looks like Infinity or like ..sometimes even DNA strand…that’s odd.

Let me turn off the lights and I am gonna see if we can get a better look at this, because this is really interesting. Aum..Aum..So it is pretty interesting guys, when I chant the Aum Mantra, I saw something like an infinity, especially when I turned off all the lights, I could see it better. It looked like Infinity sometimes even may be three loops .. looks like a DNA strand or something like that. But then when I chanted more and more, there was also a weird vibration. It is just a sort of.. a reverberation. So let me go to the computer and let’s see how everything looks when we slow it down, ok?


So, I slowed this footage down and you can tell that an interesting infinity symbol shows up when I chant  Aum.  Is this just a coincidence? I don’t know. It is really weird because according to Ancient Hinduism, Aum is the Sound of Infinity and Beyond. This is why Aum is called Pranava Mantra or the Primordial Mantra or the Sound of the Universe. Please let me know what you think about why Aum looks like Infinity, is there a connection or is it just a bizarre coincidence?

I have not finished designing this Mantrascope, I don’t like the fact that these patterns disappear immediately and we have to go to the computer every time and slow it down to see how it looks. So we are gonna make some more changes to it, and hopefully I can show an improved version soon. Now, this device was made with the help of people like you who support me. After my YouTube Channel almost got banned, a lot of people went to my Patreon page and started donating money, and we were able to build this Mantrascope so fast, even during this lockdown, because of these donations that you guys gave me.  So, I really appreciate your help and support, and I do hope to build a lot more new things related to Ancient Technology.
