Sujata, this is for you.Some of the world’s greatest mathematicians were Aryabhatta,Varahamihira and Bhaskaracharya. Bhaskaracharya lived in India 800 years ago.He was a well -known astrologer too.He wrote a book called ‘Leelavathi’ in which he stated problems in the form of poems and stories.Why did he call his work ‘Leelavathi’?Leelavathi was the name of Bhaskaracharya’s daughter. Whenthe child was born, her horoscope was prepared and examined.Bhaskaracharya made some calculations using astrology, andfound that she was destined to become a young widow. But hethought he could change the destiny of his daughter by using hiswisdom.When Leelavathi was just a little girl, Bhaskaracharya decided tocelebrate her marriage. The mathematician calculated the bestminute in the day when the marriage could take place.The family took great care to make sure that the marriage wouldtake place exactly at that minute.In those days there were no clocks to measure time. Two waterpots kept one on top of the other were used to measure time.The water kept in the upper pot would trickle down through a narrow hole into thelower pot. This lower pot was graduated according to the unit of time then in use.This unit was the ‘Nadika’. One nadika was roughly equal to 24 minutes. So the timeof the day was measured by observing the depth of water in the lower container.On the day of the marriage, Leelavathi was playing with her friends. She was fascinatedby the water clock. She bent over it and was looking into the water.A pearl from her nose stud fell into the pot. It lodged itself in thehole of the upper pot. The flow of water into the lower pot was reduced. No one wasaware of this and she was married exactly at the time when the water reached the specified level.Nobody knew that the auspicious time had already passed andthe time indicated by the water clock was not the correct time.Even Leelavathi was not aware that one of her pearls had falleninto the pot. By the time her father and others knew aboutthe pearl, the marriage had taken place.Her husband died within a few days. Why, we do not know. Andeveryone believed it was because she got married at the ‘wrong’time!

wish u good luck & God speed DR bhai@ suja: All our vedic scriptures say:Think of ur CONCIOUSNESS as being similar to JAKE SULLY (Avatar) & this human body as a PUPPETHe CONCIOUSNESS was active in the body of a Nabi, but yet his real body was aboard the sapceshipThis earth is a DREAM OF DENSE MATERIAL, making us feel "this is real"But in reality, u , me everyone are a part of the same AWARENESS that has lost its true identity & hence seeks attachment with this world & this body !This much spirituality shud do for today :-)cheers , gnite
