Page xxxix - The importance of the creation of the zero mark can never be exaggerated. This giving to airy nothing, not merely a local habitation and a name, a picture, a symbol, but helpful power, is the characteristic of the Hindu race from whence it sprang. It is like coining the Nirvana into dynamos. No single mathematical creation has been more potent for the general on-go of intelligence and power.
Page xxxv - Veda'' has this derivational meaning, ie the fountain-head and illimitable store-house of all knowledge. This derivation, in effect, means, connotes and implies that the Vedas should contain within themselves all the knowledge needed by mankind relating not only to the so-called 'spiritual' (or other-worldly) matters but also to those usually described as purely "secular", "temporal...
Page xxxvi - ... unravel the too-long hidden mysteries of philosophy and science contained in ancient India's Vedic lore, with the consequence that, after eight years of concentrated contemplation in forestsolitude, we were at long last able to recover the long lost keys which alone could unlock the portals thereof. 9. And we were agreeably astonished and intensely gratified to find that exceedingly tough mathematical problems (which the mathematically most advanced present day Western scientific world had spent...
Page xxxvii - We may, however, at this point, draw the earnest attention of everyone concerned to the following salient items thereof: i. The Sutras (aphorisms) apply to and cover each and every part of each and every chapter of each and every branch of mathematics (including arithmetic, algebra, geometry — plane and solid, trigonometry- plane and spherical, conies — geometrical and analytical, astronomy, calculus — differential and integral etc., etc. In fact, there is no part of mathematics, pure or applied,...
Page xxxii - Gurudeva reconstucted, on the basis of intuitive revelation, from materials scattered here and there in the Atharvaveda. Revered Gurudeva used to say that he had written sixteen volumes on these Sutras, one for each Sutra and that the manuscripts of the said volumes were deposited at the house of one of his disciples. Unfortunately, the said manuscripts were lost irretrievably from the place of their deposit and this colossal loss was finally confirmed in 1956. Revered Gurudeva was not much perturbed...
Page xxxviii - Indian and also of foreign universities. 15. In this connection, it is a gratifying fact that unlike some so-called Indologists (of the type hereinabove referred to) there have been some great modern mathematicians and historians of mathematics (like Prof. GP Halstead, Professor Ginsburg, Prof. De Moregan, Prof. Hutton etc.,) who have, as truth-seekers and truth-lovers, evinced a truly scientific attitude and frankly expressed their intense and whole-hearted appreciation of ancient India's grand...
Page xl - Morgan etc.) have not been guilty of even the least exaggeration in their candid admission that "even the highest and farthest reaches of modern Western mathematics have not yet brought the Western world even to the threshold of Ancient Indian Vedic Mathematics".
Page xxxv - Vedas should contain within themselves all the knowledge needed by mankind relating not only to the so-called 'spiritual' (or other-worldly) matters but also to those usually described as purely "secular", "temporal", or "wordly"; and also to the means required by humanity as such for the achievement of all-round, complete and perfect success in all conceivable directions and that there can be no adjectival or restrictive epithet calculated (or tending) to limit that knowledge down in any sphere,...
