Concept of Vedic Math
Indians with their rich heritage and intellectual insights have contributed a lot to the world since time immemorial. It has led the world with its major
contribution to the realm of science. One such wonderful and almost magical contribution is the concept of Vedic Mathematics. The concept has it’s origin
in ancient India, present in the religious books of Vedas, which was discovered by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). It is said that the science of math
is based on 16 sixteen sutras also known as word formulas, these methods or formulas are based on how our mind works while solving day to day problems,
thus they provide a very simplistic yet very effective approach to do complex calculations in Mathematics.
The most powerful yet modest aspect of Vedic Math is the coherence. Anybody trying to grasp Vedic Math will sooner or later realize that it inter relates
different concept of math into one holistic view. You could be learning a new method to multiply two four digit numbers and with a slight modification you
could also divide the two to get a quotient.
Children these days dread Math, to most of them it comes as a monster visiting them every day at school in form of regular lectures or worse in form of
Imagine asking you to derive the product of 324 and 475 with a condition that you need to do the same without the help of a calculating device. We are sure
that half the viewership of this information will not even try doing it, the ones who are courageous enough will search for a pen and paper and further only a
few out of those courageous ones will actually produce a valid result. Now what if we say using some common methods taught in Vedic Math you could
conjure the answer not in minutes but astonishingly in a few seconds!, Yes such is the power of Vedic Math. If taught to a child in the initial years it will be a
friend that will be helping your child all throughout his or her life.
The best aspect of Vedic Math is that it can be learnt by any person of any age, requires no formal training and the only pre requisite to get acquainted with it
is ‘willingness’ and a little hard work to practice whatever is being taught.
Starting early in the initial years of a childhood, a child can benefit galore from the same. It was seen in a recent survey conducted on children between the
age groups of 4 to 14, children who were previously trained on Vedic Math responded better and could relate more to the higher concept of mathematics
such as Linear Equations, Algebra etc.
But as a word of caution, one should be skeptical about choosing the proper institute teaching Vedic Math, though it is India which gives the world the deeply
respected Vedic Math, it is surprising to find that the country itself does not have many Vedic Math classes or Vedic Math training institutes, and out of the
few institutes present there are only a handful which are of a repute and are exclusively teaching Vedic Math.
