Mahabharat War 5561 B.C : By Dr. P.V. Vartak (4/5)

                       (16th October 5561 B.C.)
                     Dr. Padmakar Vishnu Vartak

NEPTUNE (was known to Vyas in 5561 B.C.) 
In 1781 A.D., Herschel discovered Uranus; but its calculated positions
never  corroborated  with the actual positions. So the experts thought
of another planet beyond Uranus. They fixed its position by  mathemat-
ics, and at that site, it was discovered by German Astronomers in 1846
A.D.  I  have  found  that  Neptune  is  also  mentioned  by  Vyas  in
Mahabharat, under the name of "Shyama".

Shukrahah Prosthapade Poorve Samaruhya Virochate Uttare tu  Parikramya
Sahitah Samudikshyate....[15-Bheeshma.3]

Shyamograhah Prajwalitah Sadhooma iva Pavakah Aaindram Tejaswi Naksha-
tram Jyesthaam Aakramya Tishthati...[16-Bheeshma.3]

Here Vyas says that there was some luminary with Venus in Poorva  Bha-
drapada.  He  adds  further that a bluish white (Shyama) planet was in
Jyeshtha and it was smoky  (Sadhoom).  Saayan  Jyeshta  means  Nirayan
Poorva  Bhadrapada,  so  this  is  the description of one and the same
planet named by Vyas as Shyama. Neelkantha calls it "Parigha"  in  his
commentary  on Mahabharat. Parigha means circumference, so this planet
may be at the circumference of our solar system.; and so may  be  Nep-
tune.  Let  us  see  by Mathematics is this statement is true. We will
determine the position of Neptune on 16th December 5561 B.C.

Neptune takes 164.78 years per rotation. It  was  at  234  degrees  in
1979.  1979 + 5561 = 7540 years. 7540 divided by 164.78 gives 45.75798
rotations.  0.75798 turn means 272.87 degrees. 234 - 272.87 = -38.87 =
321.13 degrees.  This is the site of Poorva Bhadrapada. So Neptune was
in Poorva-Bhadrapada during 5561 B.C.

In 1948, Neptune was at 172 degres. 1948 + 5561  =  7509.  7509/164.78
gives  45.56985  turns.  0.56985 turn means 205 degrees. 172-205 = -33
=360-33 = 327 deg. This is the zone of Poorva Bhadrapada.

In 1879, Neptune was at 20 degrees. 1879 + 5561  =  7440  years.  7440
divided  by 164.78 gives 45.15111 turns. 0.15111 turn means 54.39 deg.
20 - 54.39 = -34.39 = 360 - 34.39 = 325.61 degrees.  This  is  Poorva-

Thus the position of Shyama or Parigha is factually proved in the case
of  Neptune.  Thus,  we  conclude that Vyas did know Neptune too. Vyas
might have got his knowledge by Yogic Power or by  Mathematics  or  by
using  telescopic  lenses.  Mathematics was far advanced then, that is
why ancient Indian sages fixed the rate  of  precession  of  Equinoxes
accurately.  Even  the  world famous scientist Gamov praised the sages
for their remarkable work in Mathematics. So could have mathematically
calculated the position of Shyama or Neptune.

Mirrors are mentioned in the Mahabharat. So lenses too might have been
present  at that time. They had Microscopic Vision (Shanti A. 15,308).
As microscopic vision was present,  there  might  be  telescopes  too.
Planets  can  be  seen  with mirrors as well as lenses. Vyas must have
"seen" Neptune; its proof lies in the fact that he  says  that  it  is
bluish  white  (Shyama).  Neptune is, in fact, bluish white in colour.
Hence we conclude that Neptune was known to Vyas in 5561 B.C.

PLUTO (was also known to Vyas in 5561 B.C) 
Krittikaam Peedayan Teekshnaihi Nakshatram......[30-Bheeshma.3]

Vyas states that there was one Nakshatra, i.e, some immobile  liminary
troubling Krittika (Pleides) with its sharp rays. This "star" in Krit-
tika must have been some "planet". It must have  been  stationary  for
many  years,  that is why Vyas called it Nakshatra which means a thing
that does not move according to Mahabharat  itself  [Na  Ksharati  Iti

Hence the Nakshatra was a planet moving very slowly like  pluto  which
takes  nine  years to cross one Nakshatra of 13 degrees. My assumption
that this Nakshatra was Pluto gets confirmed  by  B.O.R.I  (Bhandarkar
Oriental Research Institute?) Edition which states thus :

Krittikasu  Grahasteevro   Nakshatre   Prathame   Jvalan......   [26-

Some editions mention 'Grahasteekshnah'.   Thus Teevra, Teekshana  and
Nakshatra  are  the names of one and the same planet (graha) which was
in Krittlka in 5561 B.C.  Let us see if Vyas has given these names  to
Pluto  and  if  Pluto was in Krittika.  It is stated that Krittika was
troubled with sharp rays by that planet - this indicates that  it  was
Nirayan Krittika.

Pluto was at 175 degrees in 1979.  It takes 248  years  per  rotation.
1979+5561=7540  years.   7540  divided  by  248 gives 30.403223 turns.
0.403223 turn means 145 degrees. 175 - 145 = 30 degrees.  This is  the
site  of  Krittika.  Thus it is proved beyond doubt that Vyas bas men-
tioned the position of Pluto, which was discovered to the modern world
in   1930. Vyas could have used his Yogic Vision or mathematical brain
or a lens or some  other  device  to  discover  Teevra,  Teekshna'  or
Nakshatra or Pluto.

Thus all  the  three  so-called  'New'  planets  are  discovered  from
Mahabharat.  It  is usually held that before the discovery of Herschel
in 1781 AD, only five planets were known to the world.  This belief is
wrong because Vyas has mentioned 'seven Great planets', three times in

Deepyamanascha Sampetuhu Divi Sapta Mahagrahah....[2-Bhishma.17]

This stanza states that the seven great  planets  were  brilliant  and
shining;  so  Rahu  and  Ketu  are out of question.  Rahu and Ketu are
described as Graha' 23 meaning Nodal points.  (Parus  means  a  node).
Evidently Rahu and Ketu are not included in these seven great planets.
The Moon also is not included, because it was not visible on that  day
of  Amavasya  with Solar Eclipse.  From the positions discovered by me
and given by Vyas it is seen that Mars, Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus,
Venus  and Neptune were the seven great planets accumulated in a small
field extending from Anuradha to Purva Bhadrapada. So they appeared to
Ved-Vyas as colliding with each other, during total solar eclipse.

Nissaranto Vyadrushanta Suryaat Sapta Mahagrahah....[4-Karna 37].

This stanza clearly states that these seven great planets were  'seen'
moving  away from the Sun.  As these are 'seen', Rahu and Ketu are out
of question.  This is the statement  of  sixteenth  day  of  the  War,
naturally  the  Moon  has  moved away from the Sun. Hence, Moon, Mars,
Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus,  Venus  and  Neptune  are  the  seven  great
planets mentioned by Vyas.

Praja Samharane Rajan Somam Sapta grahah Iva......[22-Drona 37].

Here again seven planets are mentioned, excluding the Moon.

Even if we do not consider the planetary  positions,  from  the  above
three  stanzas,  it is clear that seven planets are mentioned which do
not include the Sun, Moon, Rahu and Ketu.  Naturally the conclusion is
inevitable  that Vyas did know Uranus (Shveta) and Neptune (Shyama) as

If they were known from 5561 years B.C. then why they got forgotten  ?
The  answer is simple, that these two planets, Uranus and Neptune were
not useful in predicting the future of a person.  So they lost  impor-
tance  and  in  the course of time they were totally forgotten.   But,
in any case, Neelakantha  from  17th century knew  these  two  planets
very  weIl.  Neelakantha  is  about a hundered years ancient than Her-
schel,  and he writes that Mahapata (Uranus) is a famous planet in the
Astronomical  science of India.  He also mentions the planet 'Parigha'
i.e. Neptune. 22  So both were known in India, at least  one  Hundered
years before Herschel.   Vyas is 7343 years ancient than Herschel, but
still he knew all the three planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
