Description
About the Book

Ancient Indian Scientific Thought and Modern Theories makes one revisit the development of Indian science and technology in varied fields since the Vedic period, and suggests that we have a living tradition which is vivid and dynamic, inheriting at the same time claiming freedom from the past. It is the proceedings of a three-day seminar held during 25-27 March 2017 in Kolkata, organized by the Sanskrit Sahitya Parishad, Kolkata, and sponsored by NMM. This volume bears testimony to the fact that Indian sages, philosophers and scholars had a grip on all the topics that the modern-day scientists deal with, including complicated surgery and quantum mechanics. Our Vedas, Upanisads and other literary works were the storehouse of scientific wisdom, though the prevailing socio-religious conditions impeded its widespread dissemination.

This volume is expected to invoke keen interest among all who wants to know about a scientific past that Indians inherit, be a scientist or a layman.

Foreword

THE National Mission for Manuscripts (NMM), New Delhi, is making an untiring effort to retrieve hidden literary treasures across different disciplines and making serious attempts to disseminate such knowledge for the benefit of the entire world. Through seminars and conferences, the seed of the concepts takes the shape of a tree, before it is taken for publication.

The volume in hand is the proceedings of a three-day seminar - Ancient Indian Scientific Thought vis-a-vis Modern Scientific Theories, Discoveries and Development - held during 25-27 March 2017 in Kolkata, organized by the Sanskrit Sahitya Parishad, Kolkata, and sponsored by the National Mission for Manuscripts.

The Western misconception is that India lacked in scientific advancements in her past, and her literature provides no or very little clues to substantiate her claim of scientific and technological discoveries. This in spite of the sincere efforts of some well-known Western scholars like Sir William Jones, Albert Einstine and Frits Steal highlighting India's significant contributions in the development of science and technology, especially with her contribution of zero, and foothold on astrology, astronomy, Ayurveda, chemistry, natural sciences, physics, surgery, and so on.

The National Mission for Manuscripts is pleased to present this volume as it bears testimony to the fact that Indian sages, philosophers and scholars had a grip on all the topics that the modern-day scientists deal with, including complicated surgery and quantum physics. Our Vedas, Upanisads and other literary works were the storehouse of scientific wisdom, though the prevailing socio-religious conditions of the past impeded its widespread dissemination. It is my hope that the topics discussed here will pave the way for further researches that will unearth India's hidden ancient wisdom and knowhow.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
