Astronomical dating of ramayana
As per estimate made by the inter-government panel on climate change (NASA, Global Change Master Directory) the rise in the sea level during the last 7000 years has been about 2.8 metres which roughly corresponds to 9.3 feet.’ The remains of Rama Sethu are found submerged nearly at a depth of 9-10 feet.
Thus, obviously this bridge was capable of being used as land route 7000 years back.
'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.
Human Genome studies, Biological and Cultural Anthropology 7. Multi-disciplinary scientific research reports, prepared during last three- four decades by making use of such scientific tools and techniques, were used for dating the events narrated in Valmiki Ramayan and resuts were amazing!
Palaeobotanical, Palaeozoological and Palaeoclimatic studies 8. Once the astronomical dating was determined around 7000 BP, it appeared that almost all research reports were corroborating such conclusions and opening before us the pages of our true history; shifting many events from the domain of mythology to the realm of realty.
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.
Thousands of years later, when some of these Himalayan Rivers became non-perennial or started drying up, some of these people started moving towards Central Asia and Europe.
As per the Indian calendar it was the ninth day of Shukla Paksha in Chaitra Month.
On the basis of planetary configurations described in various other chapters of Valmiki’s Ramayan, the date on which Ravana was killed works out to be 4th December 5076 BC and Shri Rama completed 14 years of exile on 2nd January, 5075 BC and that day was also Navami of Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month.
Another belief is that, all sins are washed away from those who read or hear it read.
The one who recites the epic of Ramayana should have rich gifts of cows and gold and shall live long, and shall be honoured, with his sons and grandsons, in this world and in Heaven.
