Hey guys, in the previous video we saw how Pingala documented the fibonacci number 2200 years ago in India and how Fibonacci number is the basis of life itself. But, did Pingala discover this series of numbers or did Pingala take the knowledge from even more ancient sources available in Hindu texts.
In Hinduism, the origin and preservation of life is explained by a concept known as Mrityunjaya. So according to Hinduism this is the Mrityunjaya yantra. This denotes the earth, this denotes the water, and this denotes fire and air and space. This is the simplest Mrityunjaya Yantra which existed in ancient times. You can still see this yantra in many ancient temples in this simple form. It’s quite interesting because earth and water are at the lowest level, fire and air are at a higher level, and space is at the topmost level.
And you would have noticed that i’m starting this point from earth, and drawing one continuous line and ending this in earth, showing how earth starts life and it also ends here in the same point. These five elements are called Pancha Bhoota in Hinduism and these are the important aspects of origin and preservation of life. If somebody is sick, if somebody is critically ill, his family and friends will draw this yantra and will chant Mrityunjaya mantra – they will chant a specific mantra 108 times every day to make sure that he comes back to normalcy. And this Mrityunjaya mantra is very old, it is considered to be at least 5000 years old because it’s part of the Rig Veda which is the oldest text known. And this mantra is a very strange mantra, it’s not a beeja mantra – beej mantras are known only for their sounds and they don’t have particular meanings. But this mantra has words which have specific meanings, and the mantra goes like this: oṃ tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ puṣṭi-vardhanam urvārukam…
And the mantra goes like this. And it’s very strange because the term ‘Urvarukam’ actually means a specific type of cucumber, a type of cucumber. And this is weird..
