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.

All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
