Vedic Cosmography and Astronomy

Vedic Cosmography and Astronomy

by Dr. Richard L. Thompson

Anyone interested in cosmology will find this book an indispensable addition to their library and learning. From the ancient Vedas comes surprisingly accurate cosmological information.

The universe as described in such Indian texts as the Bhagavatam seems strikingly different from the universe of modern astronomy. This book addresses this apparent conflict in detail, and outlines a systematic approach to understanding the ancient viewpoint.

Topics include the celestial geometry of Bhu-mandala, mystic powers, higher-dimensional realms, Vedic mathematical astronomy, space travel, the moon flight, astrophysical anomalies, the dating of Kali-yuga, and more.
