Astronomical dating of ramayana
'The story of Shri Ram's life was first narrated by Maharishi Valmiki in the Ramayana, which was written after Shri Ram was crowned as the king of Ayodhya.
Maharishi Valmiki was a great astronomer as he has made sequential astronomical references on important dates related to the life of Shri Ram indicating the location of planets vis-a-vis zodiac This data, was fed into the software.
As per ecologists this ecological cycle has been repeating itself and will get repeated after every ice age and during the beginnings of all Holocene cycles.
Therefore the history of growth of civilization in the world is not 4 to 5 thousand years old but it is more than 10,000 years old.
GREECE--THE GREECE WE ALL ADMIRE--IS GONE, BUT HOMER'S 'IIIAD' AND 'ODESSEY' REMAIN AND WILL REMAIN FOR EVER, NOT ONLY IN GREEK BUT IN ALL THE LANGUAGES.0F THE CIVILIZED WORLD. WE CANNOT UNDERSTAND GREEK LIFE AND GREEK CIVILISATION WITHOUT KNOWING ALL ABOUT ZEUS, APOLLO, HERCULES, VENUS, HECTOR, PRIAM, ACHILLES, ULYSSES AND OTHERS, SO ALSO ONE CANNOT UNDERSTAND HINDU DHARMA UNLESS ONE KNOWS RAMA AND SEETA, BHARATA, LAKSHMANA, RAVANA, KUMBHAKARNA AND HANUMAN. PHILOSOPHY ALONE OR RITUALS ALONE OR MYTHOLOGY ALONE CANNOT BE SUFFICIENT.
BY C RAJAGOPALACHARI , MADRAS 14TH OCTOBER 1957 'DIVINE SRIRAMA (5114BC TO 5044BC) Scientific Dating of Ramayan Era The beginning of the Holocene (post last ice age) is now universally accepted to be around 12000 BP.
Consequently the civilizations of the world naturally and simultaneously started developing near the rivers which initially started flowing due to the melting of glaciers near the Equator e.g. When populations multiplied, these river waters became insufficient.
Therefore some people started travelling from south to north.
Thus Shri Rama had come back to Ayodhya when he was 39 years old (5114 – 5075).
Such sequential matching of important dates in the life of Lord Rama narrated in Valmiki’s Ramayan with astronomical dating done through planetary configurations cannot be a mere coincidence. Brahma addressed Rama as Lord Vishnu and told him to return to his original place in the heaven along with his brothers.
