We as Indians have failed to understand the deep and real meaning of the holy Vedas and Hindu culture texts written by the great sages and our ancestors. Psychologically, if we look, any knowledge from our ancient times can be easily understood by adding some personal relevance around the subject to show it through storytelling, making it interesting and easy for the listener to remember. However, this concept given by our sages was not properly adopted by future generations, took only symbolic meaning without understanding it scientifically and due to lack of understanding of the original deep knowledge, a great blow was inflicted on the social, economic and spiritual spheres. Every knowledge, literature, concept written as some message is actually a deep scientific and technical concept, information about composition, medicine and surgery, advice on physical, mental and social health, nurturing and balancing of environment, life management and work management, political and economic considerations. The main objective was to create a socially, economically, spiritually healthy society so that the country and the world would progress at the same time with the theme “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”.
Advances in science and technology are the main reason for the growth of human civilization. India has been contributing in the field of science and technology since ancient times. Even today what we call “traditional knowledge” is actually based on scientific reasoning.
Veer Savarkar wanted, “Not only a particular caste, but everyone should raise the standard of living by developing modern technology using Vedic literature”.
Lokmanya Tilak had a very in-depth study of Vedic knowledge, a treatise can be written on his knowledge.
Hindu ancestors, sages put this great knowledge not only on paper but at that time with great skill and design many concepts were practically implemented on the ground. We can see various temples, metalwork, architectural beauty, mathematics, surgical methods….
The German physicist Werner Heisenberg once said … “About Indian philosophy, some of the ideas of quantum physics that seemed so crazy suddenly became more meaningful”.
The concepts of atoms, molecules and substances can be traced back to the Vedic age. Moreover, the concepts of astronomy, metaphysics and spirituality are described in the Rig Veda, the ancient Hindu scriptures of the Vedic period.
Why have Indians built thousands, so incredibly architecturally amazing temples around the world? Were they rich enough to spend money on this venture?
Yes, their eternal Sanatan Hindu culture gave them wisdom, intelligence, hard work, spirituality and most importantly progress in the field of research, the purpose behind which was to make humanity prosperous and peaceful.
The German philosopher Gottfried von Herder once said, “The origin of mankind can be traced back to India where the human mind got its first shape of wisdom and virtue.”
From the intricate layout of the Harappan cities to the existence of the iron pillars in Delhi, it is clear that the indigenous technology in India was extremely sophisticated. These include design and planning of water supply, transport flow, natural air conditioning, complex masonry and construction engineering.
The search for peace and true knowledge, both spiritually and scientifically, remained the basic DNA of ancient Hindu civilization.
Hindu places of worship are temples whose architecture is another science.
Now let’s take a look at why we should visit temples…
Magnetic and electric waves are constantly moving inside the earth; When we build a temple, architects and engineers choose a piece of land where these waves are abundant. The main idol is placed in the center of the temple; This place is also known as sanctum sanctorum. The temple is built and then an idol is erected, the worship of which is commonly known as pranapratishta. The idol is placed where the magnetic waves are highly active. During the installation of the idol, they bury some copper plates under the statue; The plates are engraved with the Vedic script; These copper plates absorb magnetic waves from the earth and radiate to the surrounding area. Therefore, if a person regularly visits the temple and moves around the idol clockwise, his body absorbs these magnetic waves and increases the positive energy to live a healthy life.
The German philosopher Schopenhauer writes in his commemorative work, “The World as Will and Representation” – “There is no study in the whole world as beneficial and so advanced as the Upanishads. It is the consolation of my life; it will be the consolation of my death.”
Let us now understand the scientific way of ritual and spiritual practices
Why not eat food during eclipse?
During an eclipse, the sun is obstructed by the moon or the earth, so that the wavelengths of ultraviolet rays and blue light do not reach the earth sufficiently. Therefore, the level of bacteria in cooked food increases. If we eat the same food, it can lead to illness. Therefore, our sages suggested that food should not be cooked or eaten during that time. Kush or Darbha grass is kept with food items, the nanoparticles of which destroy the toxic rays.
Why one should not sleep with head facing north?
Our body has its own magnetic field, also called the heart’s magnetic field. Similarly, the earth also has its own magnetic field, which extends from south to north. If we sleep with our head facing north, we are letting our magnetic field become asymmetrical in the earth’s magnetic field. This can lead to problems related to blood pressure and your heart has to work harder to overcome this disparity of magnetic fields.
The second reason is the presence of iron in our body. Asymmetric magnetic fields cause iron to build up in the brain, which can lead to many health problems, such as headaches, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and brain degeneration.
How does your happiness index increase? There are four hormones that determine our happiness -

Why do Indian brides wear rings?
In Indian culture, brides are required to wear a ring. In the Indian tradition, wearing a silver ring on the second toe has been practiced for thousands of years. It is a symbol of a woman’s marital status and also of its social significance. In Sanatan Dharma, unmarried girls do not wear rings. This practice is still followed today.
Scientific and Ayurvedic benefits:
According to ancient studies, the second toe is directly related to pregnancy. Therefore, the ring in the toe creates acupressure, which leads to a healthy pregnancy. It also helps the bride to be mentally stable. The specific nerve where the ring produces acupressure is connected to the uterus. This keeps the parameters in and around the uterus stable, making the pregnancy healthy and stable. Our ancestors never used the surgical method “caesarian”. In recent times, its use for delivery has increased as many women have stopped preferring the ring.
Menstruation is also controlled by time intervals resulting in a married woman having a higher chances of conceiving.
It regenerates the reproductive organs and reduces gynecological problems.
Silver is a good carrier, so putting a ring in the ring helps to get polar energy from the earth and then distributes it to make the body fresh and energized.
One culture sows and another culture benefits, all cultures in the world should learn to respect this great culture without mocking this great Indian culture.
