Hanuman Chalisa predicts Distance between Sun and Earth

Hanuman Chalisa predicts Distance between Sun and Earth

Distance between Sun and Earth

Hanuman Chalisa was made by Gosvami Tulasidasa. He was an incredible lover of Lord Ramachandra who lived in the sixteenth century. He created the Rama-charita-manasa, the epic story of Lord Rama retold in the vernacular language. Numerous lovers routinely discuss Hanuman Chalisa, a petition commending Shri Hanuman, formed by this extraordinary holy person and writer.

It is trusted that in one of these stanzas of Hanuman Chalisa, Tulasidasa had given an exact estimation of the separation between the Sun and Earth.

The Quest of Astronomers to find the distance of Sun

The Greek Astronomers were known for their commitment to the logical field in understanding the brilliant bodies.

• Archimedes, an old Greek Mathematician and Philosopher of the third century BC, evaluated the separation of Sun from Earth as multiple times the sweep of Earth.

• Later, Hipparchus (2nd century BC) gave a gauge of multiple times the span of Earth.

• Ptolemy considered the separation to be multiple times the span of Earth.

Notwithstanding, Johannes Kepler (1571– 1630), a German Mathematician and Astronomer understood that these evaluations were essentially low. Kepler's law of Planetary Motion enabled cosmologists to compute the overall separation of the planets from Sun. This was likewise supported by the creation of telescope in the start of the seventeenth century which helped them to get increasingly precise estimations.

Anyway the most present day computations in twentieth century gauge the separation to be some place around 23455 times the sweep of Earth (149,431,805 kms expecting span of Earth to be 6371 kms).

Srila Prabhupada writes in one of his purports:

Present day logical counts are liable to one change after another, and along these lines they are unsure. We need to acknowledge the counts of the Vedicliterature. These Vedic counts are consistent; the cosmic estimations made some time in the past and recorded in the Vedic writing are right even at this point. Regardless of whether the Vedic estimations or present day ones are better may remain a riddle for other people, however to the extent we are concerned, we acknowledge the Vedic counts to be right.

As indicated by present day figuring:

Normal separation between the Sun and Earth =149 million kms = 92 million miles.

In any case, the circle of the Earth is certainly not an ideal circle, yet an oval. Once in a while the Earth is nearer to the Sun and once in a while it is more remote.

Most limited separation among Sun and Earth (perihelion) = 91 million miles = 147 million kms (early January)

Longest separation among Sun and Earth (aphelion) = 94.5 million miles = 152 million kms (early July)

It is amazing to take note of that Tulasidasa who lived in sixteenth century could give the most precise estimation that is near the estimation by twentieth century space experts.
Give us a chance to unravel the count in Hanuman Chalisa…

Hanuman, in his youth, accepting the Sun to be a ready mango, hopped to get it. Tulasidasa describes this episode in his Hanuman Chalisa as pursues:

yuga-sahasra-yojana para bhanuleelyo tahi madhura phala janu

Believing the Sun to be a sweet natural product, Hanuman hopped to swallow it.

Here the separation he voyaged is referenced as yuga-sahasra-yojana. Give us a chance to endeavor to interpret this.

What is a yuga? According to Bhagavad-gita, one day of Brahma is called kalpa and is equivalent to 1000 yugas and this is trailed by a comparative term of night.

Hanuman Chalisa predicts Distance between Sun and Earth

sahasra-yuga-paryantamaharyadbrahmanoviduhratrim yuga-sahasrantamte ‘ho-ratra-vidojanah

1 yuga = 4,320,000 years = 12000 divine years
(1 divine year = 360 years as indicated by human computation)

This is likewise affirmed in Manu-samhita: etad dvaadasha sahasram devanam yugamuchyate

As indicated by the above section from Hanuman Chalisa, the separation among Sun and Earth is

yuga-sahasra-yojana = 12000 x 1000 yojanas.
Yojana is a Vedic proportion of separation and around equivalents to 8 miles (as per the fourteenth century researcher Parameshvara, the originator of drgganita framework). What's more, 1 mile = 1.60934 kilometers.
As indicated by the computation introduced in Hanuman Chalisa
Separation among Sun and Earth = 12000 x 1000 yojanas = 96 million miles = 153.6 million kms, which is a lot nearer to the computation of the advanced researchers.

The suppositions we have made in the above counts are as per the following:

1. We accepted yuga to mean the number 12000 dependent on the time figuring arrangement of Vedic period dependent on the announcement from Bhagavad-gita and Manu Samhita.

2. We approximated 1 yojana = 8 miles dependent on what Srila Prabhupada has referenced in his indicates. Anyway there is still difference among researchers about whether it is 5 miles or 8 miles. Some different estimations show esteems running from 7.6 miles to 8.5 miles.

In any case, it is surprising that Tulasidasa referenced the separation to this dimension of exactness as ahead of schedule as in sixteenth century when the Western stargazers, with the assistance of telescope, were attempting to make sense of the separation.
