THE SCIENTIFIC PRIDE OF INDIA - ‘MAHARSHI KANAD’

The great man who enlightened the scientific boundaries of life at ‘quantum level’, he was the first nuclear scientist of India perhaps the world’s first.

The modern nuclear epoch was started in 1929; Einstein, Neils Bohr, Enrico ferny, Villard and Oppenheimer led the world to the dawn of the nuclear epoch.

In spite of the great work of the modern world’s nuclear scientists, why should we call ‘Maharshi Kanad’, the pioneer of ‘Quantum Mechanics’?

The work span of ‘Maharshi Kanad’ is dated back to the second century. He was born in the ‘Prabhas’ region (old name). ‘Aacharya Soma Sharma’ was his guru.

He has briefly described his concepts of electron in his Darshan- Grantha… ‘Vaisheshik Darshan’. Many critics have written their opinions (Bhashya) about this –Darshan.

This is an abstract of the great man’s work…. We can say it as postulates of Kanad’s theory or Kanad’s thesis: -

  1. Elements are formed due to the specific arrangement of electrons; he first introduced this concept.
  2. The fundamental material of element is the basic reason behind the activity and characteristic properties of ‘Karma’ (sequence of events without time limit).
  3. All the substances originated from earth are made up of micro and indivisible particles called electrons.
  4. The electrons are in stable or non-vibratory motion and the reason behind their initial vibratory motion is unknown.
  5. Atomic energy is created due to the chain of reaction of these electrons and this creates such vibrations in the element and creates destruction.
  6. Electrons can be used to measure time. Electron is the smallest unit to measure time.

So we can conclude that use of electrons to measure time was defined before 1700 years in India
In terms of the ‘second’ i.e. unit of time, One electron is equal to 37967.75th part of second. i.e. 1 electron =1/37967.75 second. Specialty of Kanad is his research work was not limited only up to the element.

According to him, all the substances, which are originated from the Earth, are made up of the smallest and indivisible electrons.

Though electrons in all the substances are smallest, they are not indivisible. Accordingly, electrons in some substances are divisible and such divisible electrons are used in destruction.

Kanad said that, Human mind is also made up of fusion of electrons; this can give rise to brief research work.

Kanad defined ‘life’ as an organized form of atoms and molecules and ‘death’ as an unorganized form of those atoms and molecules.

Good job Aditya... The world still doesn't know about the great Indian scientist... As far as time and age is concerned, Kanad is undoubtedly THE BEST! When Einstein, Bohr and others came, then the advancement was more than enough for the provision of equipment, etc. After all, INDIAN CULTURE is inventive, whereas WESTERN CULTURE is innovative...

Dear Aditya,
very much importat infomation.thanks.we should write about comparison of indian saints and scientist and between the western scientist.and we should prove that our saint and scientist had solved the mistry of life and death,and our education sholud be on the base of those greate persons.

dear aditya ,
you are doing good job, this information mae awake to all our INDIAN freinds about our scientificc history but it is not sufficient for us to make knoen to unknown history , We should want to do work on this and prove this.

Hi,you must read a book called prachin pratibhavant (which is in marathi).. it states that science and scientist like kanad invented a lot of things which the world is re-discovering...which includes inventions like medical science, csection, operations, astronomy etc.

I have read elsewhere that Maharshi Kanad belonged to Satyug. He was the disciple of Maharshi Nar-Narayan.He was called Kanad because he ate only the leftover grains(kan) after harvest. He is also credited with the foundation of the Siva temple at Kashi which still stands there as one of the dwadash jyotirlinga. Of course his Vaisheshik darshan and quantum theory have made him immortal.

Britishers have stolen all our ideas,theories,mathematics,medicine from many ancient indian books as well as Vedas....they shipped that books to Europe but never give credits to Indians...they knew that knowledge is power in India and hence India can become superpower.
