SIDDHANTA- DARPANA (Volume - II)
Description
About the Book:

Present second volume translates all the verses in English. Translation is not literal but in mathematical terms, but preserving the technical terms in Sanskrit. Verses in praise of god have been left out not because of disrespect. With all devotion inspired by Samanta Chandrashekhar this is not the purpose of the second volume. In addition to translation, each formula has been explained or derived according to modern mathematics and astronomers and some times with other countries and with modern astronomy. This was the method and purpose of Samanta himself.

Technical terms and their calculations cannot be explained in words alone. So a general mathematical and technical introduction is given at beginning of each chapter with bibliography or source reference for further study. In that light only, the methods proved in the chapter can be understood. Where-ever considered useful method have also been explained with examples, based on text as well as modern astronomy.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
