Description

Vedic Mathematics is an introductory text that contains a list of mental calculations based on the Vedic Sutras, which makes it easier to solve difficult equations.

Summary Of The Book

Vedic Mathematics is based on an ancient technique of calculations obtained from the Vedas. Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji rediscovered this form of Mathematics in the early 20th century. He maintained that ancient methods were apt at solving difficult and complex problems. The text is based on the premise that rules of a mathematical order govern the universe.

In Vedic Mathematics, students can expect to find 16 sutras which discuss strategies involved in mental calculation. The text also includes forty chapters dealing with different aspects in mathematics, ranging from simple to complex difficulty levels. Some of the arithmetic topics that are covered are Factorization, Complex Mergers, Straight Squaring, Simple Equations, Quadratic Equations, Cubic Equations, Recurring Decimals, Vedic Numerical Codes, Simultaneous Quadratic Equations, Partial Fractions, Analytical Conics, Arithmetical Computations, Cube Roots, and Auxiliary Fractions.

Vedic Mathematics is written in a lucid style, and has been widely used in schools. This text, based on the 16 Vedic Sutras, is intended to help students solve difficult equations. The book was first published in 1965, five years after the death of the author. The book was written in 1957 during the author’s US tour. The current 15th edition of Vedic Mathematics was published in 2012 by Motilal Banarsidass.

About Jagadguru Swami Bharati Krsna Tirthaji Maharaj

Jagadguru Swami Bharati Krsna Tirthaji Maharaj, nee Venkatraman Shastri, was a scholar, author, and swami, who belonged to Govardhana Matha of Puri. Maharaj also authored Vedic Metaphysics and Vedic Ganit. The author had a brilliant mind. He always attained the highest standing in all his courses. When he completed his MA at the American College of Sciences in Rochester, New York, he scored the highest marks in seven of the subjects, setting the world record for that time. As a young man, he partnered with Gopal Krishna Gokhale in the National Education Movement. However, since he always had inclination towards religious studies, he continued on a spiritual path which eventually earned him a Shankaracharya title. The Swami travelled extensively across the Americas and Europe speaking about peace and the Vedanta. He passed away in 1960.

Setting the record straight

This book has been profound in the lives of many people. That much is beyond question. However, it angers me to read such a ream of disrespectful and thoughtless reviews on here. This work, if it can be coupled with work ethic - goodness me! Actually putting some effort into applying something - WILL yield extraordinary results for you. The language is not at all a problem. As a student of English Language and Literature and six other languages, including Latin, I know when something is writt...

Extremely useful book and a must buy !!

This book offers a variety of methods to solve cumbrous multiplication, division, recurring decimals and a lot more. Even branches of mathematics such as Trigonometry, Geometry (Pythagoras' Theorem, Apollonius' Theorem),Calculus (Differential & Integral ), Analytical Conics are covered. I feel proud to discover that ancient India was so well developed in science, especially in mathematics.

Flipkart delivery & packaging was good

this book is pretty complicated & is not very useful, if you are a beginer.

even the paper quality is not good.

Instead go for J.T Glover

easy to understand

Merits and Flaws of the witer

This book is better than other books written on vedic mathematics as it contain several topics which other books does not have. Most of the books written on vedic mathematics does not have the higher topics but his book has those topics too. Some topics like vinculum which are basic for studying vedic mathematics should be studied before hand as the writer uses it frequently but not had discussed the topic. At some places the language is too difficult to understand. I would suggest to the Hi...

Absolutely Brilliant

Brilliant book but meant for long extended reading. Not useful for competitive exams but for connoisseurs of mathematics and to appreciate our traditional knowledge of mathematics.
I would deeply reccomend for small kids in standards 5 to 8th.
Its very conceptual and would strike a deep impact

Beginners need Hard Work

Again, Fast and Superior Service by Flipkart with nice packaging.
The book is good and helpful for tricks, has most of the practices that a mathematician needs but lots of hard work and practice is needed. One cannot gain whole benefits of this without a single read ... Language is little bit harsh to Hinglish people but works.
Good Luck !!!

GREAT BOOK ON MENTAL CALCULATION, TEACHES YOU MANY THINGS

This is a great book on mental calculation. The things that I like about the book are:-
1. The author's look at number as an algebraic expression .
2. Great shorthand methods developed from the above view by the author, both easy to remember and effective.
3. It makes you realise that even you could have derived those if you had given enough thought, the book is
literally about some easy ways to solve particular type of problems.

What is very much bad about this book is that:
1. He clai...
