Hidden sciences in Hinduism: An Introduction – Part 1
[Last Update: 13th May 2018]
Hidden sciences in the Hindu scriptures, for example the Vedas, the Gita, the Upanishads, etc. In fact, science is not primarily hidden in the sense of consciously concealing information to third parties, but rather the information is often multiple reserved. This can be best illustrated with the German word “Leiter = ladder”. The word “Leiter” may be an object for climbing, or in the physical sense of the electrical system, it is a conductive element e. g. a cable. Of course, there are other uses or definitions for the same term, but we remain here with these two mappings (partial definitions). It should also be clear to everyone that the two terms have to do on a meta-level with each other and therefore they have been mapped /defined so. One can formulate texts so that the same sentence can be understood differently. When a craftsman reads this sentence, he will rather think of a ladder to climb, but a physicist will rather think of conducting materials, so concepts are context dependent. So a question “What is a ‘Leiter’?” cannot be answered unambiguously. For a different way of explaining, the fables are the best. They have been told on two levels. The animals represent human traits, even though an animal is neither good nor bad – but this is again a separate topic, and on the second level, the animal should be understood as a classical animal. A child will have different interpretations in different stages of development. This is also the case, for example, with the Bhagavad Gita and other Hindu scriptures. It was formulated for the whole mankind, from craftsmen to scientists – but please do not misinterpret this with the social value of certain professions. The intention was mainly, because different people thinks differently and only for that reason. Due to the timespan, the span of life of a human is not enough to focus on all disciplines, and also other factors (such as family, problems, etc.) make the focus even more difficult.
It is important to understand, that one cannot ascribe something good or bad to a knife. It depends on what one do with it. If it is used as a weapon to kill a person, a doctor who uses it for surgery or as a tool in the kitchen to chop vegetables. In other words, it always depends on the use of the object by the subject (subject = e. g. a person). The object is neither good nor bad. It is the same with the Vedas given by God to mankind. Unfortunately, in the Yajur Veda certain elements were placed in the focus (black Yajur Veda). For example, it is comparable with: “How to build an atomic bomb”, so it gets a negative flavor. Whoever the initiators were, plays a subordinate role in this article, since many things have to be corrected in historical sciences, linguistics, geology, archeology, anthropology, etc.
The approach in science is that always hypotheses for explanations are created. These hypotheses can, but do not have to be true. Hypotheses that are built on other hypotheses, collapses like a house of card when the original hypothesis is false. The arrogance of certain scientists makes them blind by searching for the truth. This occurs when one holds the science for the Absolute.
Here are some sources about the meanings of numbers in Hinduism:
- List of numbers in Hindu scriptures
- One hundred and eight (108)
The first source has errors2 which maybe is a result of transformation into our units of the present time. For example, our expanding1 universe has a diameter of about 78 billion light-years.
When reading information such as e.g. the distance Satyaloka to Vishnuloka – don’t think of extraterrestrial (alien), in the way of the classical3 understanding of the term “extraterrestrial“. All extraterrestrial stories, as initiated by the Western world, are mainly intended to mislead the mankind. Please do not forget that there is not only one motive for the misleading, there are several, such as e. g. the phrase “Kill two (or more) birds with one stone” indicates.
There are red herrings (2nd defintion), so that people’s way of thinking can be directed into wrong direction, and on this way the wrong thinking also find place in the science. Once such a thought has sprung, then one is fixed on it – even in science this is the case with the hypotheses. One should also know that the (officially reputable) scientists like Newton, secretly dealt with alchemy, Hinduism, etc.
I would also recommend to examine carefully the weapons which were used in the battle of Kurukshetra (Mahabharata) about 47 million years ago (in our time they could be compared with atomic bombs, but these weapons were even more powerful) or the flying objects in the Ramayana. Don’t forget to note that the Ramayana is much more in the past than the Mahabharata. The statement “47 million years ago” refers to the Mahabharata. The root of all and everything is the Indian subcontinent.
It is hard for me to believe that until the official discovery of the American continent, people had thought the earth as a slice. According to the currently officially dated Hindu scriptures, which are dated as 4000 years before Christ, one can already see that the culture of the Indian subcontinent has not seen the earth as a slice, and there was also a great exchange between the Indian subcontinent and the Western world, which in turn rejects the non-existence of knowledge (e. g. about the earth) of Western civilization. This only indicates that the first stones have been laid for concealing knowledge. Much of the historical aspects should be researched and written soon.
I have coincidentally seen this documentation yesterday, see below. I could only look a few minutes, but I could still judge it. I can recommend it. The below links are the German version of the documentation, but the original is in English. Try to search after it on your own.

- Galactic coordinate system

(German Lectures by Prof. Dr. Harald Lesch, Dr. Josef M. Gaßner, ….)
- PlayList of all videos
- In one of the many videos, Prof. Lesch says: “What if life had been created earlier …“. If I found the video with the appropriate TimeCode, I’ll post it here.
- Pangaea (The geographic state at the time of Sati and Shiva) → Animation (YouTube) NEW
- After Satis’s death, one big continent is divided in to five continents (the number five in Hinduism stands for Shiva)
[Attention: different Defintions for continent]
- Later, in the period of Murugan, it was six continents (the number six in Hinduism stands for Murugan)
- In the era of Ramayana there were seven continents.

2 At the time, well over two decades ago, when I discovered similarities in the Hindu texts and astrophysics, I can imagine that I have seen / discovered that there were no mistakes, at least not the sources that I used at that time. But this was long time ago and I no longer know which sources I used – especially the number of texts, magazines, books I have read (or partially studied) normally.
Where is the difference between to read a text, book etc. or to study (see definition 2) it? This realisation of the differentiation is of fundamental importance!
