The famous Pythagorean Theorem was not really discovered by Greek Mathematician Pythagoras but Indian Mathematician Baudhayana, Mathematician. Indian mathematician, also a priest, believed to have flourished c. BCE. Believed to have been a skilled craftsman, thus to. The mathematics given in the Sulbasutra-s enables It is clear from the writing that Baudhayana.

It was ancient Indians mathematicians who discovered Pythagoras theorem. To elaborate, the shloka is to be mathekatician as —. In fact, later on many historians have tried to prove the relation between Pythagoras theorem and Pythagoras but have failed miserably. In fact, the only relation that the historians have been able to trace it to is with Euclid, who again came many centuries after Pythagoras! This would also partially explain why Greeks were so reserved in crediting Pythagoras with this theorem!
I have already read your post on encryption technique. Its very good that you are creating awareness on Vedic science. We at Bhaktivedanta Institue are working very seriously on these area. Please if possible come to our Bangalore center and visit and learn mathemattician more on this. I feel obliged and beyond that i feel proud of my rich cultured India. Dear Nair, Wish you all the best. You have years to explore facts. Exploring Indian history takes you to many confusions and controversies.
Interpret your knowledge with one another and bring up the buried history. It is high time we go deep into the matter and give credit to the real discoverers of the theorams.
Dear Tushar, There are still more mathematicians remain unsung. I hardly have time to post in this blog. But all your encouragements will surely bring me back here and make this blog alive. Dear Lokesh, The Vedas has been re-written by English for a long period. The Indians were been taught that these Vedas are a bundle of evils and were burnt in fire.
Max Muller have been highly paid by the English to re-write these Vedas. Martial arts like varma kalai born at India were the origin of other martial arts in the world. They were not only an art but medicine! We knew the value of turmeric and neem for thousands of years ago which were patented by others! Our traditional practices are also being patented. One such thing is Super Brain Yoga Google it. Kindly go through the other posts!
Yes, but still there should have been sources remaining which is why we know that these are there. We nee to have a Hindu organisation for Bringing the Knowledge of Vedas Back to life, otherwise it will just remain as stories of pride.
I admire the spiritual Knowledge of panishads, I have gone thru few of them and had a great experience. My point is we need a Solid Authentic Body for Vedas and all knowledge. Which can really make every Indian feel proud of their Ancestor Knowledge. Thanks for the posts I am Enjoying it, I was only trying to present vision we need for future. Please do not understand me as cristisising your post. I wish the Indian Govenment would rethink why the Aryan Invasion theory is still taught to school children when its so clear that it was the figment of a corrupted imagination.
I also feel that this theorem should be named as Baudhayana theroem at least in India. We need a Hindu Govt to get these mistakes corrected. Ancient Indians have indeed made quite a lot of amazing discoveries, but instead of blaming others for denying the credit to our people, it is our own mistakes that we allowed others to take the credit of the discoveries made by our people.
Secondly I do not understand why this type of posts come only after someone has already taken the credit! What we were doing during all this time? Why we wake up late most of the time?
The provlem is our own. Outsiders will definitely going to exploit the holes in our system. People say we always believed in sharing the knowledge hence we never patented it! We Indians do have a tendancy to try to associate everything with Vedas or try to show as if everything has happened initially only in India and the people of other civilization were fools! Where did that ancient wisdom gone? Even for this blame the west and preach nobody can hurt us or take anything from us unless we allow others to do so, nothing but the double standards!
As for the Pythagoras theorem, it was known in ancient Mesopotamia even before Indians. Astrology started by Sumerians but peaked under Indians. Writing started by Sumerians. It was not full fledged writing system but the script.
Sumerians was quite a mysterious civilizations. It was the oldest civilization appeared before Indian.
Indian civilization overlapped with Sumerians and there was definite trade routes between the two mathematicina. Come out of your prejudice against other civilization. Not every thing started in India. Vedas are not the ultimate source of information.
Baudhayana: The Original Mathematician Behind Pythagoras Theorem
Dear DMT, Again sumerian civilization being older than indian civilization not indus valley civilization is a myth, sumerian word itself is derived from sanskrit word su-meru, where meru is the very vividly described meru parvat or the kails mountain. The oldest civilization was the saraswati valley civilization after the saraswati river disappeared it still flows under ground due to bauddhayana natural calamity like earthquake, the residents those traveled west were called asuras while those to east were suras, asuras later corrupted to Ahoras, who are considered the people in zorastrian or sumerian civilization.
Vedas is collection of knowledge over generation, it may be the first time that knowledge was documented but not necessarily the first time when it was discovered. Dear DMT, I dont know whether you have baudhayaha of this news or not,but under water city of dwarka has been found recently,it is atleast 10, years old, some say atleast 32, years old,though this fact is not known much in the west as they wd like to keep it a secret as it demolishes claims made by it about indias history,this knowledge compltely discredits the mathematixian you have put,also One prominent scholar, Samuel Noah Kramer, believes that the term Dilmun in Sumerian literature refers not to the Sumerian homeland but to the Mathfmatician civilization as the land of opportunity.
However there is just as much chance that the Indus River Valley Mathematicisn was the source of the civilization of Dilmun. So yes indian civilization preexisted sumerian civilization. There are many more notable achievements, I want to say that our ancient sanskrit texts contain lot of knowledge which is not available to everyone as few people today know sanskrit.
And our gurukuls where the centre for learning, which had immense knowledge imparted on students, matheamtician they were systematically destroyed. To promote our heritage and inform the masses of our rich history we need a strong hindutva govt. Which has pride in baudhhayana hindu culture and which is not lost in the macaulay education system.
This is part of our identity and we all baudhayanw play a part so that rich heritage of india is taught in our schools. Friends I do feel sorry for that our ancient knowledge is not taught to our children.
As indians we should know that this creation is just a mirage. Fore telling of the future is the best example to say that this creation is fixed. We should aim mathematicuan getting out of this creation matheamtician getting much entangled in this maya mirage. Therefore our ancestors did not use their heads for knowing about this bogus world they used it to know the secrets of this creation and the path to get salvation.
But there were some sages who did write about this world. And i would like to add one more point, vedas were not the writings of a single person over a short course of time.
It was the ideology of many sages over baudhayaan long course of time. It was passed down from one generation marhematician another generation losing its precise meaning and also it was contaminated. But this writing of vedas was stopped after the kurukshetra war nearly bc after this incident there was a dark period in india thus we find no scriptures of this period.
Thus the foreign historians could not find the correct starting of our chronology so they fixed everything before bc to nearly bc. And also there was a great loss of knowledge due to the orthodox nature of the Brahmins. The foreigners were a mathematiccian of barbarians who could not know the worth of our knowledge. The languages we used before are the best examples.
So my friends i guess you now know the true intention why our ancestors wrote the vast vedas for. It is also a matter of grief for india that only a small chunk of our ancient knowledge is with us today. I am really sorry for my comment is not scientific according to the west. And also my english is not so good and the topics do not coincide correctly.
However it may be worth researching in history about the secret Mathematical?
Try and find out why they had these rules and if so where did they picked them up? Also it may be worth looking into if these rules have connection with the delay in pronouncing this theorem in his name nearly yrs in Greece itself, let alone elsewhere.
Whilst I agree that is important to acknowledge the very important part Indian mathematicians and philosophers have played in the history of the world and today, many, many people from all different cultures learnt at Babylon and later, at Egypt. I am dismayed that we try to take credit for most of the discoveries of the modern world. We are stupid to have put these shlokas in the pooja rooms and God knows how many are destroyed or lying in neglect somewhere.
Let me make a few references: I am not tied with anything except facts claims and articles which I believe to be true. Innovations made in Eastern countries were not well documented and even if they were mathemayician were not very well known. This is not about east or west inventions but….
