Rig Veda: Significance of “Modern Astronomy”


Rig Veda found a place is the UNESCO’s memory of world register, a collection of documentary heritage in the year 2007, and the year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of the use of telescope by Galileo for confirming the Copernicus’ Helio-centric model of the solar system. The year 2009 was the world year of astronomy.



Rig Veda dates back to 35,000 to 25,000, i.e. 30,000 years ago  in the Man Krita (formative) Yuga {Matsya Purāna 144.79} and according to the research oriented book “What Awaits Man in 2,000 A.D. and thereafter”- M. K. Dave, Ajanta Publication, New Delhi, 1998}. It is necessary to understand the “Intelligent Design” of God.

Rig Veda is a sacred scientific document that emerged as a joint venture of the ancient united world on Unified Creation based on the “Intelligent Design” of Parameshwar encased in Sanskrit Computer cum computational methodology /   [Chhandās]. It matches modern computer System and it interfaces with modern astronomy.

Rig Veda: Importance of “Solar Activity” by Professor M K Dave

It is a treatise on the unification of all that is in the universe and includes a unified overview of relationships involved in the art of living. “Intelligent Design” ensures a smooth transition from science to Dharma.  The blue prints of unified creations reveal the importance of the conservation of the wild life and deep involvement of living creatures in Unified Creations that seem to match nicely with the photographs in space of their counter parts in space as revealed by NASA.

Dharma is supportive of the entire scientific enterprises. The human mind has the capacity to comprehend the structure of the entire universe that prevails as a finite, coherent and ordered totality and is subject to scientific scrutiny. But the gains of sciences make the man materialistic, self-centred and morally degraded.

Dharma signifies a moral order in human affairs, the code of conduct of the individual group, the rules of social behaviour that advocates justice, virtue, morality righteousness, law and duty – all dwelling in the norms acceptable to humanity as an ideal theory – the truth eternal.

Dharma, therefore, is an all embracing code of wisdom which influences human conduct including all the visual aids inherent in the mental concept of Dharmic Karmās, like  Yagna, pooja individual, the funeral rites and so on. It leads to the spiritual aspects of individual responsibilities and duties to the self, other beings and nature.  In worldly affairs, dharma has four cardinal points called ‘Purushārtha’. They are Artha (monetary matters in the field of economics), the enjoyment of fruits of one’s labour including Kāma (physical love), Dharma (religious ceremonies) and Moksha (liberation from the cycle of rebirth) through spiritual knowledge as part of Yoga. Yoga leads to self-realization and then to God (Brahma) realization by transcendental meditation.

Hindu Dharma is a way of life derived from the Sanātana Dharma. Hence Dharma and culture are so indistinguishably intertwined that it is not possible to separate them into two. Their strength lies in its adaptability even after onslaughts from within and without. The secret of its longevity in an unshakable foundation of philosophy, thought, Dharma and culture – all rooted in the parity between ethics of humanistic life in terms of characteristic three-fold modes (Satva, Rājas, Tāmas) of nature.

The entire universe is dualistic in character. The scientists cum seers tried to realize the Supreme Parameshwar in His oneness by unifying Jivātmā [soul of the living] with Ātmā [soul of the non-living] residing in the body of the single black-hole / Prithivi / Pind before and after creation.

Astronomy tries to unify the four fundamental forces of Nature in the physical Grand Unified Field (GUF) symbolized by Om. The Vedic system involves the three Gunās / qualities [Sat, Raj, Tama] and the Brahma. Thus the unification in Rig Veda involves three factor coupled with the physical GUF with the wisdom, intelligence and consciousness of Brahma [in human form].

The following Sukta on Rta ensures that the Creation will be exactly the same because of SOMA {Cosmic Microwave Background Radiations}- the relics / debris of the past Creation:

1) “Rita and truth were created from Tapa / heat full of Tej / light / brilliance. Then day and night came into being. Thereafter, there appeared the ocean full of Jal / waters / plasma.

2) “From the ocean full of Jal / waters / plasma, Samvatsara / year was born. Ishwar created day and night. Ishwar is the Lord of universe associated with time measurable as Nimesh, etc.

3) “Since ancient times, Ishwar created exactly as it was before [“Yathā Poorvam Akalpayat”}, Surya / Sun, Chandra / Moon, Swarga Loka / heaven, Prathivi Loka / Earth and Antariksh / space – (Rishi Achmarshano Mādhuchchhandasah).

Astronomers assume that present universe emerged from the black hole about the size of the solar system at Creation in accordance with Loop Quantum Cosmology being developed by involving super computers. This is reflected in the mantra “Yathā Poorvam Akalpayat” [R.V.10.190.3] i.e. the universe is created exactly as before, and in this recycled universe the present can reveal the past and future of Nature

Sound as Soma / C.M.B.R. originated from X-ray ripples from Agni  / Surya / sun within the black hole cum white hole according to Loop Quantum Cosmology within the Event Horizon according to Mark Whittle and Soma ensures the creation to be exactly the same as before “Yathā Poorvam Akalpayat” .

Excursions through the maze of Vedās, Purānās and epics of world renown lead us to believe that there existed a one world Dharmic order in earlier days of the humans. This then becomes the springboard of the various religions on the same foundations of science.

God created the universe by a self-referral system as in mathematics and self –replicating quark-gluon plasma together with the self-replicating genes (DNA) according to the three-in-one Varna Meru for unified creation of the non-living and the living-beings.

Varna Meru is the Universal King–pin of Knowledge of arts and sciences.


The Sun is 149.6 million kilometers (93 million miles) from our Earth. Sun is a huge ball of spinning incredibly hot sphere of gas that is generating energy and forms a disc-shaped system. The core is particularly hot and dense. Here nuclei of hydrogen collides and fuses to form helium.  Nuclear fusion at extremely high gravity takes place by gravity compression.

The cycle starts with the thermal collisions of two protons (H+) to form deuterium (2H) with the simultaneous creation a positron (e+) and neutrino. Positron quickly encounter a free electron in the sun and both particles annihilate, their mass-energy appearing as 2 gamma ray photons. Once deuterium is produced, it quickly collides with another proton to form 3He and gamma ray.

The core temperature increases to 10 to the power 8 K by burning Helium to carbon and other elements. This reaction produces energy that lights and heats the solar system. The energy passes through the radiations and convection zones to the surface of the photosphere then through the sun’s atmosphere (chromosphere) into space.


An alternate view is that the universe begins to contract after reaching its maximum expansion limits until it disappears into a fraction of a millimeter.  The creation begins anew after billions of years (Solar years) of non-existence.

The puranic view asserts that the universe is created, destroyed, and re-created in an eternally repetitive series of cycles. In Hindu cosmology, a universe endures for about 4,320,000,000 (one  day of Brahma, the creator or kalpa) and is then destroyed by fire or water elements. At this point, Brahma rests for one night, just as long as the day. This process, named pralaya (literally especial dissolution in Sanskrit, commonly translated as Cataclysm), repeats for 100 Brahmā years (311 Trillion, 40 Billion Human Years) that represents Brahma's lifespan. Brahmā is regarded as a manifestation of Brahman as the creator.

(According to Vishnu Puran and Agni Purana, there are 4 different types of pralaya: Prakritik Pralaya, Naimittik Pralaya, Aatyantik Pralaya and Nitya Pralaya)

Prakritik Pralaya which is of 311,040,000,000,000 solar years duration, occurs after the completion of life of Brahmā (i.e. 100 Brahmā years = 311 trillion and 40 billion earth years = one day of Vishnu = 1 Parama). After the completion of one Brahmā life cycle, the complete dissolution of all the entities (i.e. the Pancha Mahabhutha or Universe) takes place in the eternity (God). Prākritik Pralaya is the time for which Vishnu sleeps. The next morning, he again gives birth to a new Lord Brahmā and asks him to create new worldly entities. Noticeably, Prākritik Pralaya and the Life of Brahmā are of equal duration.

Naimittika Pralaya, which is of 4,320,000,000 earth years, occurs just after the end of a Kalpa. Also, known as the Night of Brahma, it signifies the end of living world. In Bhāgvata Purāna, sage Shukdeva told king Parikshit that if Lord Brahma is supposed to be a child (for example), then in a similar way as a child plays with his toys i.e. making various structures from his toys during day and breaking or dismantling them before he goes to sleep at night; Brahmā makes the living world during his day (i.e. Kalpa) and destroys it before going to sleep during night (i.e. Naimittika Pralaya). A new living world is created by Brahmā, when he wakes up the next day and so on the cycle continues till Prākritik Pralaya. Again, Naimittika Pralaya and Kalpa are of equal duration.

Nitya Pralaya, is the sleep or by an extension there of Death.]

In current occurrence of Universe, we are believed to be in the 51st year of the present Brahmā and so about 156 trillion years have elapsed since He was born as Brahmā. After Brahmā’s "death", it is necessary that another 100 Brahmā years (311 Trillion, 40 Billion Years) pass until a new Brahmā is born and the whole creation begins anew. This process is repeated again and again, forever.

Brahmā's day is divided in one thousand cycles (Mahā Yuga, or the Great Year). Mahā Yuga, during which life, including the human race appears and then disappears, has 71 divisions, each made of 14 Manvantara (1000) years.

Each Maha Yuga lasts for 4,320,000 years. Manvantara is Manu's cycle, the one who gives birth and governs the human race. before & after each

Manvantara there's a Sandhikāla as long as Krutyuga & in that time there is all water on earth. Each Mahā Yuga consists of a series of four shorter Yugās, or ages.

The Yugās get progressively worse from a moral point of view as one proceeds from one Yuga to another. As a result, each Yuga is of shorter duration than the age that preceded it.

The current Kali Yuga (Iron Age) began at midnight 17 February / 18 February in 3102 BC in the proleptic Julian calendar (Year 6898 of the Holocene Era.) Kalpa=Ahoratra of Brahmā. Space and time are considered to be Māya (illusion).

What looks like 100 years in the cosmos of Brahma could be thousands of years in other worlds, millions of years in some other worlds and 311 trillion and 40 billion years for our solar system and earth. The life span of

Lord Brahmā, the creator, is 100 'Brahmā-Years'.

One day in the life of Brahma is called a Kalpa or 4.32 billion years.[5][6]

Every Kalpa creates 14 Manus one after the other, who in turn manifest and regulate this world. Thus, there are fourteen generations of Manu in each Kalpa.

Each Manu's life (Manvantara) consists of 71 Chaturyugās (quartets of Yugās or eras).[7]

Each Chaturyuga is composed of four eras or Yugās: Satya, Tretā, Dwāpara and Kali.[7] if we add all Manvantaras(4320000x71x14)as long as 4 Chaturyuga will be missing it because Sandhikāla after & before each Manvantara so 15 Sandhikāla

The span of the Satya Yuga is 1,728,000 human years, Treta Yuga is 1,296,000 human years long, the Dwapara Yuga 864,000 human years and the Kali Yuga 432,000 human years.

When Manu perishes at the end of his life, Brahmā creates the next Manu and the cycle continues until all fourteen Manus and the Universe perish by the end of Bramhā's day.

When 'night' falls, Brahmā goes to sleep for a period of 4.32 billion years, which is a period of time equal one day (of Brahmā) and the lives of fourteen Manus.

The next 'morning', Brahmā creates fourteen additional Manus in sequence just as he has done on the previous 'day'.

The cycle goes on for 100 'divine years' at the end of which Brahmā perishes and is regenerated. Bramhā's entire life equals 311 trillion, 40 billion years. Thus a second of Brahmā is 98,630 years.

Once Brahmā dies there is an equal period of unmanifestation for 311 trillion, 40 billion years, until the next Brahmā is created.
