Description

Back of the Book

A significant Vedic research based on astronomical references, carried out over a century ago, which suggests that the astronomical method of research is certainly superior to the linguistic method in as much as it supplies us with certain definite and in disputed facts which can be made the nuclei of the different periods of history. We can then use the literary or linguistic method to supplement these results.

A non-technical book on a fascinating subject related to India’s heritage and its influence on world history.

The obscure and unintelligible passages in the Rigveda disclose the polar attributes of the Vedic deities or has traces of an ancient arctic calendar; while the Iranian Avesta expressly tells us that the happy land of Airyana Vaijo, or the Aryan Paradise. Was located in a region where the sun shone but once a year, and that it was destroyed by the invasion of snow and ice, which rendered its climate inclement and necessitated a migration southward.

 

About the Book

The Vedas are the oldest in world literature and have been preserved letter for letter and accent for accent despite the non-development of the art of writing till long years. The Aryan race who produced them are spread all over Europe and Western Asia-Where was their original home and what made them disperse from there? Historians have explored the question, without much convincing results. Their examination is based on linguistic and literary methods, a relatively general and inaccurate method for such studies. Lokmanya Tilak for the first time applied the astronomical method, and came to strikingly convincing conclusions-that the Aryans lived in polar regions which had a most pleasant climate at that nights were very long, as they still are. They shifted when the climate began the climate began to change.

The work is a significant contribution to Indian and world history-which is still awaiting its due.
