E=mc2 in Bhagavad Gita & more

Einstein formula is well known regarding energy and mass relationship per his Mass Energy Equivalence (E = mc2) in  his paper Annus Mirabilis in 1905.Many are unaware that Gita has already told us with a dedicated verse described below - What it means that every mass has energy and energy could me massless. Actually there is challenge to this formula as energy does not have mass so how could it be transferable to mass

1ST UNDERSTANDING E=MC^2 IN SHORT : 
E represents the energy, which we measure in Joules. Joules is an SI measurement for energy and is measured as kilograms x meters squared per seconds squared [kg x m2/s2]. All this essentially means is that a Joule of energy is equal to the force used to move a specific object 1 meter in the same direction as the force.
m represents the mass of the specified object. For this equation, we measure mass in Kilograms (or 1000 grams).
represents the speed of light. In a vacuum, light moves at 186,282 miles per second. However in science we utilize the SI (International System of Units), therefore we use measurements of meters and kilometers as opposed to feet and miles. So whenever we do our calculations for light, we use 3.00 × 108m/s, or rather 300,000,000 meters per second.
bhūmir āpo ‘nalo vāyuḥ
khaḿ mano buddhir eva ca
ahańkāra itīyaḿ me
bhinnā prakṛtir aṣṭadhā ||
Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7, Verse 4

MEANING : Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego—all together these eight constitute My separated material energies.

Thus, this mass–energy relation states that the universal proportionality factor between equivalent amounts of energy and mass is equal to the speed of light squared. This also serves to convert units of mass to units of energy, no matter what system of measurement units is used.
Krishna SAID IN in Gita that, Soul can neither be created nor destroyed. It just transfers from one body to another, that is from one form to another or one body to another.
Many years later, science said, Energy can neither be created or nor be destroyed it can only be changed from one form to another.
This proves that soul is nothing but energy. and Body is just a mass so when death happens, mass is converted to massless energy-called soul


nainam chindanti sastrani nainam dahati pavakah na cainam kledayanty apo na sosayati marutah

Meaning : The soul can never be cut into pieces by any weapon, nor can he be burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind.
It just leaves old body and finds new body.


In 1905, in his paper Annus Mirabilis, Einstein first expressed this idea. His classical equation E = mc2, popularly known as the mass energy equivalence is the concept that the mass of an object is a measure of its energy content. Until then the scientists were of the opinion that any object was made up of matter composed of the 100 plus elements enlisted in the periodic table. However the ancient scientists would have a simplified and more holistic classification of elements as earth, water, fire, air and ether.

After years of struggle in the laboratories, litres of perspiration and bundles of dollars, with the experiments performed 100 meters underground in CERN, Switzerland, the scientific society finally concluded in the year 1932, that indeed matter is also a form of energy.
With a simple faith in Krishna and His words, this could have been known without so much hassle. In this verse of Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna specifically mentions the gross elements which compose matter – earth, water, fire, air, ether, and tells Arjuna that these constitute His material ENERGY.

Lesson: God is very merciful. Out of His compassion, to save us the trouble of running Large Hadron Colliders and Cyclotrons, He has already published all the facts regarding this universe and beyond in our time-tested scriptures: Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, the Puranas, the Vedas, Upanishads etc. Now the choice is ours. We should decide which is a better way to satisfy our quest?

Where did Einstein get this E= mc2 formula from? Did he get this concept after reading Hindu scriptures? We can’t say anything for sure. But there are two important clues.

Einstein was a Jew. Jews are Yadavas who migrated to Middle East during Rig Vedic days. Yadu became Juda. J=Y is linguistics. But it won’t give any clue to his discovery.

The concept of time in Hindu scripture is very different from the old Western concept. Hindu concept is very scientific. Hindu sages are called Tri Kala Jnanis= who can go beyond Past, Present and Future. Like we see TV serials and films on VCR by ‘Fast Forwarding’ and ‘Rewinding’ they saw TIME!

We are the one to tell the world first about Big Bang and Big Crunch/Shrink. We are the one to tell the world that time is different for Brahma in Celestial Worlds and Brahmins on earth. We are the one who spoke about very big numbers in astronomical terms where as other books were able to count 40 to 120. We are the one who told the world about Zero without which no scientific invention was possible. We are the one who taught the world to write numbers 1,2,3 etc. They were using complicated Roman script to write numbers until a few centuries ago.



Einstein had several books about Hinduism in his library. One of them was ‘The Secret Doctrine’ published by the Theosophical Society. He has met Hindu scholars including Tagore. Does it say anything about what Einstein said? No. it might have helped him to think scientifically. For instance the Viswarupa Darsanam (Arjuna’s Vision of Universal Form of God) in Bhagavad Gita explains the cyclical nature of time. Even Black holes may be explained with that description. Everything is sucked into this Universal Form in an amazing speed. Arjuna was shown a parallel universe. And I am not the first one to see nuclear science in Bhagavad Gita. Even the Father of Atomic Bomb Robert Oppenheimer recited Gita sloka in great excitement when he witnessed the first atomic explosion (Please read my Atomic Bomb to Zoology in Bhagavad Gita article).

The following anecdote is found in a very old book of anecdotes:

This story is told of, and possibly by, Alfred Einstein, who was asked by his hostess at a social gathering to explain the theory of relativity. Said the great mathematician,
“Madam, I was once walking in the country on a hot day with a blind friend, and said that I would like a drink of milk.
“Milk? Said my friend, ‘Drink I know; but what is milk?
“’A white liquid’, I replied.” ‘Liquid I know; but what is white?’
“’The colour of swan’s feathers.’
“’Feathers I know; what is a swan?’
“’A bird with a crooked neck’
“’Neck I know; but what is this crooked?’
“Thereupon I lost patience. I seized his arm and straightened it. ‘That is straight’, I said; and then I bent it at the elbow. ‘That is crooked’.
“’ ‘Ah!’ said the blind man, ‘Now I know what you mean by milk!’”.
(Thesaurus of Anecdotes, page 198)


This story is found in the Hindu ‘Katha Sarit Sagara’, which is the largest Story collection in the ancient world. All the seeds or plots of old stories such as Arabian Nights are found in it. If Einstein has said it, then he must have read several Hindu stories and scriptures. This might have given some new idea for his lateral thinking on TIME!
