Description:

The mysteries of the the 5th canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam have puzzled students of Vedic and astronomy. Confronted with a descritpion of the universe that seems at variance with the information provided by the speculation that the scientist based their knowledge from the very limited perception of their resources at hand, and such as astronomical calculations based on knowledge that constantly varies due to renewed and improved instruments at different stage makes it an unsatisfactory, and unpermanent knowledge. This is why the author here shows that the 5th canto's cosmography and the accounts of the solar system found in the Jyostisa-sastras are not contradictory, but represent distinct yet mutually consistent in comprehending the universe with important features beyond the range of ordinary sense perception.
