Astronomy Seminar 1

VIHE Seminar: Gita Nagari, PA - 1990 / (205)

At first glance, the cosmology described in the Bhagavata Purana may appear to be a mythical narration. Thompson helps demystify the account while simultaneously examining complementary treatises such as the Surya-siddhanta, which offer complex details of empirically verifiable astronomical data from a geocentric perspective. He illustrates how the accounts offered in both the Surya-siddhanta and Srimad-Bhagavatam mirror one another, albeit using different frames of reference.
