# What is Vedic Mathematics?

Vedic Math’s is the World’s Fastest Mental Math’s System. It helps you calculate faster

Vedic Mathematics was discovered by Shri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji during his extensive research on the Vedas. An avid reader and researcher by nature, he went into deep meditations and studied the four Vedas extensively only to discover the sixteen sutras lying hidden in the verses of the Atharva Veda. Teerthaji spent long years in the forest of Sringeri from 1911 to 1981 and studied the literature mostly written in old lexicons including Visva, Amara, Arnava, Sabdakalpardruma etc.

Vedic Mathematics consists of 16 Sutras or Word Formulae and 13 sub-sutras (Sub Formulae) which can be used for solving mathematical problems in a far simpler manner. It offers techniques and shortcuts to master numerical calculations in split seconds. Using these techniques, it is possible to calculate 10-15 times faster than usual methods. The difficult problems or huge sums can be solved almost immediately by the Vedic method.

They are easy to understand, easy to apply and easy to remember. The system is wonderfully interrelated and unified. Working with these formulae is healthy for the mind as they guide a way the mind naturally works and are therefore proved to be helpful in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution.

One can develop their own applications of Vedic Math’s to Regular School methods once an expert. This promotes creativity among interested pupils. For your child, it means giving them a competitive edge, a way to optimize their performance and gives them an edge in mathematics and logic that will them to shine in the classroom and beyond.

## A little about the Father of Vedic mathematics himself

**Shri Bharathi Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja**, born on 14^{th} March 1884 at Tinnievelly, Tamil Nadu, and India was known as Venkatraman before he became a saint. He had a brilliant academic record with a Masters (MA) degree in six subjects like Sanskrit, English, History, Philosophy, Mathematics and Science from the Bombay Centre of the American College of Science, Rochester, New York. He was also appointed “Warden of the Sons of India” by Dr Annie Besant in 1908.
