Applied Vedic Science - Advanced (Jyotisha)

Jyotiṣa (loosely translated as astrology/astronomy), described as the eyes of the Vedas, uses mathematical calculations as tools for comprehending the planetary positions and interpreting their implications. The Jyotiṣa scholars were also expert mathematicians who made contributions to their field of study with their erudite treatises. The methodology and theories proposed by them are notable and one of the most renowned works in this area is the Līlāvatī, which through puzzles and riddles introduces mathematics to the beginners. This course, which is the second of a two-part course series on Jyotiṣa, is dedicated to the study of mathematics in the Indian knowledge traditions.
