All about Vedic Maths

Posted on March 18, 2006. Filed under: tech talk, Teen life |

It is said that all the knowledge in the world is contained in the Vedas. Well , I don’t know about anything else , but it sure does rule the roost when it comes to maths. Many rules of addition , subtraction , multiplication , division , sqauring , sq. rooting , cubing , cube rooting and even calculus are mentioned in 16 sutras or slokas containing rules. These sutras are written in Sanskrit and have very deceptive double meanings. Meanings which are entirely different from maths. But these contain methods that beat even Trachtenburg’s Speed Math methods. Only experienced Abacus users can beat experienced Vedic Maths users in speed. I’ll be posting more about it pretty soon. Well , after Monday. Till then check out this site for simple tutorials and problems.

What is Vedic Maths



Vedic Maths is based on sixteen sutras or principles. These principles are general in nature and can be applied in many ways. In practice many applications of the sutras may be learned and combined to solve actual problems. These tutorials will give examples of simple applications of the sutras, to give a feel for how the Vedic Maths system works. These tutorials do not attempt to teach the systematic use of the sutras. For more advanced applications and a more complete coverage of the basic uses of the sutras, we recommend you study one books avilable from our book store or try the correspondence course.

N.B. The following tutorials are based on examples and exercises given in the book ‘Fun with figures’ by Kenneth Williams, which is a fun introduction some of the applications of the sutras for children.

If you are having problems using the tutorials then you could always read the instructions.

can you multiply

Is possible through multilayer multiplication
from P J Naidu

Multilayer multiplication is simple extension of vedic mathematics. It can easily be learnt by anyone capable of adding 9+9 and multiplying 9 by 9.
In this 45869 X 652= 29906588. The proof goes like a plaited strand of rope.
Get in touch with for a free demonstration.

Dear P J Naiduji
The multilayer multiplication appears very interesting. Can you explain? I am eager to learn from you.

Dear P J Naiduji
I am surprised that the response to my request was so quick and explanation so lucid. Within minutes! Great.

Hey guys,go to the website to know more about it.I have been studying it for last 12 years and it is amazing..

It is only gimmicks. Can’t come all the way

It is gimmicks if the underlying principle can’t be explained. When you can, then it is theory.

Many call the term ‘Vedic Math’ a hoax and without any real reference in Vedas. They even say the sutras are cooked up. Cooked up or found in Vedas, aren’t they lucid, clear and make math that much easier?
I am happy with that.

Nice info. Thanks!
I found an online Vedic Mathematics course for teachers by Gaurav Tekriwal, founder President of The Vedic Maths Forum India.
This course has its focus on creating more value to teacher’s current skill set by adding more knowledge about ancient methods of calculation. Vedic Maths not only improving the calculation speed but will add more horizon and will fetch more opportunities for the teachers to teach in some coaching Institutes that will equip the students appearing for competitive exams.
Bonus- The learner will get a lifetime Certification to be presented in the resume along with the 8DVD set so that he can learn offline at his own ease which would also include test papers for self practice.
I shall enroll in this course once my finances get ok..DVDs please me as a help.
