Vedic Mathematics is a unique technique of calculations based on simple rules and principles with which any mathematical problem can be solved.

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960).

According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae. For example, 'Vertically and crosswise` is one of these Sutras. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution. Vedic mathematics includes Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Calculus and other forms of Mathematics.

Vedic Mathematics manifests the coherent and unified structure of mathematics and the methods are complementary, direct and easy. The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can be carried out mentally. In the Vedic system 'difficult' problems or huge sums can often be solved immediately by the Vedic method. These striking and beautiful methods are just a part of a complete system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern 'system'.

The real beauty and effectiveness of the Tirthaji system cannot be fully appreciated without practicing the system. One can then see why its enthusiasts claim that it is the most refined and efficient calculating system known.

Why to use this system of calculation?

  • Helps to reduce finger counting and also helps a student to remember large amount of questions.
  • Helps to reduce silly mistakes as this method is direct, simple and keeps the mind of student alert
  • enhances the calculation speed
  • helps in increasing concentration levels

Our brain is like a muscle. Just like other parts of our body require regular exercise, our brain requires it too. The system of vedic maths helps a person to utilize both parts of the brain – left and right hence keeping one active throughout his life time.
