Astronomy Siddhaantas

Daniel F. Salas

The seven Rishis [the seven dotes in the seal above] is the name of a

constellation the Big Dipper [Saptarishi] in the past this constellation lined up with the

summer and winter as the 6th hour and 18th hour. The north pole moves 1 degree every

70 years in a circle called the precession of the equinox. The first star of the Saptarishi

that came the closes to the North Pole and lined up with the direction of the summer

solstice was Alkaid the last handle star 6480 years ago than the last star to line up with

the summer Solstice was Dubhe 3240 years from Polaris or 1228 BCE [Note 3240 x 2

= 6480]. When at Dubhe the North Pole was 15 degrees above the star. This changing

line through the solstices changes with respect to a conceptual fixed line starting from the

star Agasta in the south running through Polaris â€œDhruvaâ€� and then the permanent

celestial pole and finally through Vega â€œAbhijitâ€�. This difference was measured in

Yogas 60 degrees = 4320 years. A line formed through the Solstices and the other from

Agasta too Polaris then Vega form two lines that intercept at the celestial pole.

The Siddhaantas (Aryabhatiya, Suryasiddhanta, Narada Purana) used a given

number of planetary revolutions. A Mahayuga or yuga equals 4320.000 revolutions, the

moon 57753336, Jupiter 364220. The Ardharatrikapaksa has the same numbers for

yoga the moon and Jupiter; it gives Saturn 146564, mars 2296824, Venus 7022388

and Mercury 17937020. Due to the precession of the equinox the shift through 1 degree

arc was 72 orbits today it is 71.6. The time period for the equinoctial shift to go

through an astrological house (30 degrees) was 72 x 30 = 2160 than two houses were

2160 x 2 = 4320. The ancients multiplied the number by a factor of 1000 at the end of a

calculation they would have had to divide by 1000, today this is called in science the

precision of three decimal places.

The planet Jupiter above was given 364220 orbits , three decimal place precision

4320.000 / 364.220 = 11.86096 here 4320 / 364.2 = 11.86161 the precise

measurement of today of one orbit of Jupiter is 11.86 earth orbits (earth orbit equals

4320/X as a ratio).

Saturn takes 10,759 Earth days or 29.5 earth orbits. The Vedic number of 146.564 /

4320 = 29.475.

The Siddhaantas ( Aryabhatiya , Suryasiddhanta , Narada Purana) gave the

moon 57753336 and a Yuga 4320000 Three dicmal place precession 57753.336 /

4320 = 13.3688 x 27.32167 days per lunar orbit = 365.2587 the Julian calendar is

365.25 days of 86400 SI seconds The Earthâ€™s rotation is slowing at a rate of 0.002

seconds per day per century. As a result of the slowing there is a Conservation of

angular momentum the slowing of earthâ€™s rotation is accompanied by an increase of

the mean Earth-Moon distance of about 3.8 m per century , or 3.8 m cm per orbit.

Mars in science orbits the sun in 687 earth days. The Vedic number 2296824 for

mars in the equation 4320 / 2296.824 = 1.88 then 1.88 x 365.25636 = 686.9953 The

Martian orbit is equal to 1.8809 Earth orbits, , 320 days , and 18.2 hours , the Vedic

numbers 4320 / 2296.824 = 1.88085.

Venus in science completes an orbit of the sun in 224.65 days. The Vedic numbers

7022388 three decimal places 7022.388 / 4320 = 1.6255527 then 365.25636 a orbit

divided by the modern number 224.65 = 1.622589.

Mercury in science takes 88 days to complete an orbit around the sun. the Vedic

numbers 17937020 , then 17937.02 / 4320 = 4.152 and 365.25636 / 88 = 4.15064.

Since Agasta or Canopus is so far south in the sky, it never rises in mid- or far-

northern latitudes; in theory the northern limit of visibility is latitude 37Â°18; north. The

procession of the equinox is 25920 or 4320 x 6 years and a quarter of the procession is

6480 years making the North Pole more than 23 degrees further north than today. In

4467 BCE (6480-2013) Canopus could only be seen at 12 degrees latitude that is

about 25 degrees, 37 â€“ 25 = 12 degrees. Today the continent of India starts at 8

degrees, 6480 divided by 25 is 259.2 years per degree (this is an estimation because a

quarter of the precession is more the 23 degrees approximately 25-27 degrees more)

4467 â€“ 3100 = 1367 and 1367 divided by 259.2 = 5.2739 degrees then 12 +

5.2739 = 17.2739 degrees this is in agreement with the latitude of the Vindhya

mountains.

When you use the star Vega {Abhijit} as a reference star just as I used a quarter of the

procession, Vega was the pole star at half of the procession from today. That is 25920

years divided by two or 12960 years ago. Again "Since Canopus is so far south in the

sky, it never rises in mid- or far-northern latitudes; in theory the northern limit of visibility

is latitude 37Â°18; north" and today Vega is 18h 36m56.3364s, +38Â° 47â€² 01.291â

€³. Vega is at +38 latitude and the visibility of Canopus today with the North Pole 1

degree east of Polaris Dhruva is +37. This Calendar would use 46 degrees and not 23

as I used above, that is a quarter of the procession and the north pole is 23 degrees

north of Polaris and 23 degrees west of the Celestial pole, that is why I used 25 above

instead of 23, if you take a line from Canopus to 23 degrees past our North pole or the

celestial pole and make Canopus the center of a circle, that circle would miss the pole

that is 23 degrees at a right angle at the celestial pole [6480 years ago]. Today Canopus

is at 06h 23m 57.1099s, âˆ’52Â° 41â€² 44.378â€³ and Vega is 18h 36m 56.3364s,

+38Â° 47â€² 01.291â€³ so 6th hour is a straight line through the 18th hour and it

intersects Abhijit , Agastya and between them dhruva (Polaris).

Longitude (/ËˆlÉ’ndÊ’É¨tjuË�d/ or /ËˆlÉ’ndÊ’É¨tuË�d/, British also /ËˆlÉ’Å

‹É¡É¨tjuË�d/),[1] is a geographic coordinate that specifies the east-west position of a

point on the Earth's surface. It is an angular measurement, usually expressed in degrees

and denoted by the Greek letter lambda (Î»). Points with the same longitude lie in lines

running from the North Pole to the South Pole. By convention, one of these, the Prime

Meridian, which passes through the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, England, was

intended to establish the position of zero degrees longitude.

46 degrees above Dhruva would be the calculation of Vega, the actual is 5 degrees

more as Vega was 5 degrees south from the north pole 12960 years ago. 12960 /46 =

281.739 this is in conflict with 6480 divided by 25 is 259.2 years per degrees. Here 46

+ 5 =51 12960/51=254.1176.

In Hindu mythology, Vega is called Abhijit. The author of Mahabharat, Maharshi Vyas,

mentions in the chapter Vana Parva (Chap. 230, Verses 8â€“11): "Contesting against

Abhijit (Vega), the constellation Krittika (Pleiades and 46dgrees) to "Vana" the Summer

Solstice to heat the summer. Then the star Abhijit slipped down in the sky." P. V.

Vartak suggests in his book, The Scholarly Dating of Mahabharat, that the "slipping of

Abhijit" and ascension of Krittika (Pleiades) might refer to the gradual drop of Vega as a

pole star since 12,000 BC. Vega is expected to become Earths Pole star by year

26,000 by some estimates.

and in mythol. as the body of the demon Sain6hikeya [son of Sin6hika1] which was
