In Hanuman Chalisa, it is said,
"Yug sahastra yojan per Bhanu ! Leelyo taahi Madhu Phal Janu !! "
1 Yug = 12000 years
1 Sahastra = 1000
1 Yojan = 8 Miles
Yug x Sahastra x Yojan = par Bhanu
12000 x 1000 x 8 miles
1 mile = 96000000 miles = 96000000 x 1.6kms =
153600000 kms to Sun
NASA has said that, it is the exact distance between Earth and Sun (Bhanu). Which proves Hanuman ji did jump to Planet Sun, thinking it as a sweet fruit (Madhu Pal).
It is really interesting how accurate and meaningful Our ancient scriptures are.
Unfortunately barely it is recognized, interpreted accurately Or realized by any in today's time.
17th-century astronomers Giovanni Cassini and Jean Richer pegged the distance from the Earth to the sun as 40 million kilometers. just nine million kilometers off from the now-official figure. They calculated the astronomical unit by using observations of Mars from two different spots on Earth, then used the difference between those two observations to calculate our distance from Mars, which they then used to determine our distance from the sun.
But our ancient Indian Astronomers have calculated this distance accurately long before them. The diameter of the sun multiplied by 108 gives this distance. The number 108 gets its importance in Hinduism from this calculation.
