Dating of the Ramayana and Mahabharata, a lecture by NILESH OAK
Let Mahabharata & Ramayana data-set, change your mindset!
While there are more than 130 attempts to date Mahabharata and more than dozen attempts to date Ramayana, all of them have lead to different proposals based on, supposedly, same set of evidences from these epics. This causes lot of confusion and makes ordinary individuals wonder if they can trust either these researchers or the evidence, or both!
The problem is not in the evidence, but rather of irrational and subjective methods employed by most researchers. Nilesh will demonstrate a scientific framework for conducting new research or analyzing existing research, and how this simple framework can be used by anyone to determine the quality of any research work or claim.
Besides presenting specific dates for instances of Mahabharata & Ramayana, Nilesh will convincingly demonstrate, with the help of specific astronomy evidence, why Mahabharata war did not happen anytime after 4500 BCE and why Ramayana did not happen anytime after 10,000 BCE.
Nilesh Nilkanth Oak is the author of ‘When did the Mahabharata war happen?: The Mystery of Arundhati’ and ‘The Historic Rama: Indian civilization at the end of Pleistocene’.
He freshly evaluated astronomy observations of Mahabharata text, which led to validation of 5561 BCE as the year of Mahabharata War while falsifying more than 120 alternate claims.
Nilesh researches in astronomy, archeology,anthropology, quantum mechanics, economics,naturopathy, ancient narratives and philosophy. Nilesh resides in Atlanta, USA.
