SPEED OF LIGHT : RIG VEDHA
2000YEARS OLD INDIAN BOOK
“Yojananam Dwe Dwe Shate Dwe Cha Yojane Aken Nimishardhena Krammana Namostute”
This is a phrase in Rig Veda that explains that the sunlight moves 2202 Yajnas in Half a Nimesha. What is a Yajna and what is a Nimesha? Here you find it in detail…
A detailed calculation is shown below
15 Nimesh = 1 Kashth
30 Kashth = 1 Kaal
30 Kaal = 1 Muhurt
30 Muhurt = 1 Ahoratr
1 Ahoratr = 1 Day (24 hours)
Now, we all know 1 Day = 60 x 60 x 24 = 86400 Seconds
Calculating the above time units we get 1 Ahorartr (1 Day) = 40,5000 Nimesh
And Now therefore 1 Nimesh = 86400/405000 = 0.2133 Seconds
Obviously, Half Nimesh = 0.10665 Seconds
Now let us calculate the distance.
1 Yojan = 14.5 Km or 9.009 Miles as per modern calculations.
And therefore 2202 Yojans = 19837.818 Mi or 31925873.371 M
Now the Speed of light as per Vedic calculations is
19837.818/0.10665 = 186008.607 Mi/Sec
299351836.585 M/Sec (i.e.) 2.9 x 108 M/Sec
The accurate measures of modern calculations say the speed of light is 186282 Mi/Sec or 299792458 M/Sec
Modern sciences teaches us that the speed of light was first discovered by the Danish astronomer Roamer in 1676, while we have the evidences of measurements thousands of years before he was born.
