Chandra Hari presents a new picture of Indian antiquity and the scientific foundations of India's esoteric wisdom. This book is a brief voyage through the intricate corridors of Indian history, astronomy, epics Mahabharata and Ramayana, Vedas and the Tantric religion and all across the discussion is replete with novel insights that demands basic changes in our established notions on Indian antiquity, history of Jyotihsastra and above all the mathematical and physical rationale of the Hindu sidereal zodiac.
Rationales that haven't been apparent even during the times of Aryabhata and Varahamihira (AD 500) have been shown to be the basis of the Hindu sidereal zodiac - the Tantric conception of esoteric Time or Kalacakra. Epic and Puranic mythology finds a new interpretation that unlocks the doors of mysterious Indian antiquity that has defied even archaeological attempts for a precise definition. Astronomical decipherment of the Iconography of Siva, the Mahakala of Tantric conception, yields 4137 BC as the founding epoch of ancient longitude of 2400 is shown to be the fiduciary star of the Rasicakram and accordingly the vernal equinox transited the zero point in AD 233. These conclusions meet further corroboration in the analysis of Suryasiddhanta according to which the original epoch of Siddhantic astronomy was Caitrasukla (1) of AD 231 that coincided with the vernal equinox.
Apart from answers for all controversies related to Zodiac, the work presents the first ever correct astronomical dating of redactions of both Ramayana and Mahabharata and explains the absence of material culture (archaeological findings of the epics locations) that answers the epic profile of Ayodhya, Indraprastha, Kuruksetra etc. This is a work indispensable for all those who have interest in Indian astronomy, astrology, antiquity and Hindu religion and also to those engaged in historical research.
