## What is Vedic Mathematics?

*“Welcome to the Wonderful World of Vedic Mathematics”*

Vedic mathematics was re-discovered from our ancient Veda by** Jagadguru Shankaracharya Shri Bharti Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj (1884-1960).**

Shri Bharti Krishnaji was born in **March 1884**, his childhood name was Venkatraman. He was extraordinary brilliant from his schooldays. In 1899 at the age of 15 Madras Sanskrit Association awarded him by the title **Saraswathi**.

Tirthaji wrote the mathematical Sutras in Manuscript, that he discovered by long 8 years of Meditation (1911-1918). Unfortunately, that manuscript was lost. Finally, in **1957** in his old age in spite of having bad health condition & poor eyesight he re-wrote the Sutras by just memorizing it. He wanted to write more about it, but he suffered by Cataract in both of his eyes & **went in a Samadhi in 1960**.

**Vedic mathematics contains 16 – Sutras & 13 – Sub-Sutras**, which cover almost all the branches of mathematics. There are different shortcut tricks & formulas available for **addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square & square-root of number as well as cube & cube-root of number**. We can also apply the sutras to solve** simultaneous equations, Percentage calculations, factorization, Trigonometric calculations** etc. It does not contain only the shortcut tricks but also **develop the logical thinking**. Difficult & lengthy problems can also solve by one-line formula that create child’s interest in mathematics.

We can divide the sutras in to two parts, **general technique & specific technique**. Where general technique is applicable to all combination of number & specific technique is applicable to a selected combination of number. General method to solve any mathematical problem is from right to left, but **sutras work from left to right** as naturally human brain works.

One can solve the sum by 3-4 different methods, so student must apply their own logic to select the easiest method, this leads to add interest, curiosity & creativity in math’s.

**But without practicing, the effectiveness & simplicity of this method is incomplete.**

I have read many books, studied the available websites on Vedic mathematics & also listened YouTube videos & then prepared the blogs of this website in a very easy way so that anyone can understand it in only one or two readings.
