Vedic science is knowledge from beyond our universe.
Experience the power of Vedic science by experimenting with your own consciousness.
Fundamentals of Vedic Science
Vedic Science vs. Modern Science
There are numerous ways we acquire knowledge about the world around us. Broadly speaking, there are two categories of knowledge: knowledge we discover by ourselves though speculation, and knowledge we receive from trusted authorities.
The modern scientific method relies primarily on speculation or experimentation. In other words, it is based on knowledge human beings discover with their intellect. Due to our limited experience, limited sensory capabilities and limited duration of life, the modern scientific method is limited in it’s ability to achieve perfect knowledge. Therefore, modern science goes though continuous cycles of revisions – Newton, Lorrentz and Einstein have given successively better theories of physical forces. In Sanskrit, this is known as arohan-panthā, or the path of ascending knowledge.
If you accept the right authority, or source of knowledge, then you save much time. For example, there are two systems of knowledge in the material world: inductive and deductive. From deductive, you accept that man is mortal. Your father says man is mortal, your sister says man is mortal, everyone says man is mortal – but you do not experiment. You accept it as a fact that man is mortal. If you want to research to find out whether man is mortal, you have to study each and every man, and you may come to think that there may be some man who is not dying but you have not seen him yet. So in this way your research will never be finished.
The Vedic scientific method is receiving knowledge from the Vedas written by perfect sages. In Sanskrit, this is known as avaroha-panthā, or the path of descending wisdom. If we want perfect knowledge, it must come from a perfect source through perfect medium. How do we know that the Vedas are prefect? For instance, it is said in the Vedas that the Universe is 13.819 billion years old. The latest findings from Planck satellite confirm that the the Universe is 13.801 billion years old. This values is within 0.1% of the Vedic value. Moreover, the Vedic scientific method is inclusive. Everyone is capable of accessing the perfect knowledge contained in the Vedic scriptures, the most important being self-realization through meditation.

Modern Science is Catching Up with Vedic Science
Although the Vedic texts were written few thousands of years ago, they contain an advanced understanding of the natural laws of our universe. In fact, information recorded in the Puranas ( a part of the Vedas ) stunningly matches advanced and recent findings of modern science, particularly in the fields of cosmology, astrophysics and paleontology. This is thoroughly discussed in the book, Heretic Science.
Here are three points of correspondence where the ancient Vedic science has been shown to hold the answers to questions that have perplexed modern scientists for hundreds of years.

In his book The Big Bang and The Sages, author Sidharth Chhabra presents astonishing findings from his research in the cosmological presentation of the Puranas of ancient India. Although compiled by sages thousands of years ago, these texts contain stunningly accurate data for key events in the creation and development of our universe, as well as the history of our planet Earth.

Useful Concepts in Vedic Science
The Vedic science not only contains practical information pertaining to the fields of cosmology, health, and astrology, but also a variety of other disciplines, including philosophy, epistemology, and psychology. According to the Vedas, the human mind is uniquely capable for self-realization. Whereas other forms of life offer similar opportunities for sensual pleasure, the human form of life alone affords us with the chance to study the Vedas, acquire Vedic knowledge, and revive our pure consciousness.
What is this pure consciousness? According to the Veda, all of existence is an emanation from a single unified field known as Brahman. That Brahman is what we truly are: pure consciousness. However, within this common identity we also each possess an eternal sense of individuality in relation to the Superconsciousness. Although some proponents of Vedic science teach that the ultimate goal of Vedic knowledge is to “merge” back into the unified field of pure consciousness, this understanding is incomplete.
Frequently Asked Questions

What are the four main Vedas? The four primary Vedic texts are the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda, and Atharva Veda. However, these texts are no longer available in their complete form. For this reason, the Puranas are the most reliable source of Vedic knowledge today, and they are commonly known as the fifth Veda.
What are some Vedic science facts? The Vedas contain accurate data pertaining to all fields of science. Here are just a few examples:
- The date of the “Big Bang.”
- The date of universal annihilation or the death of our universe.
- The date of the Permian mass extinction.
- The origin of our solar system as well as its destruction.
- The developmental stages of a human fetus within the womb.
- The destination of the soul at the time of death.
