Vedic maths – The ultra fast mind mathematical technique, an Indian contribution.

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of 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 Math essentially rests on the 16 Sutras or mathematical formulas as referred to in the Vedas. Sri Sathya Sai Veda Pratishtan has compiled these 16 Sutras and 13 sub-Sutras.
