"Astronomy and the Antiquity of Vedic Civilization"

BTG Issue: 
July/August 1991 | Vol. 25, No. 4
Analyses of "time and space" found in ancient traditions offer a "layout of the universe [that] bear similar traces of a common cultural background."

An examination of an extensive list of "astronomical examples" and "examples about time, indicate that old cultures around the world shared a view of the cosmos similar in many ways to the Vedic one. The details that appear again and again in these stories suggest the existence of a common cultural tradition. yet the stories differ, and we have no clear historical records of their origin. This suggests that their common cultural source dates from the remote past. So the existence of these stores is consistent with the Vedic accounts of an ancient world civilization with a spiritual view of the origin and purpose of the universe."
