The Geocentric Design Of The Solar System
Gauragopala dasa: This photo is of the Geocentric system of the Solar System where the Planets and Sun orbit the Earth. A similar technologically advanced diorama of this structure is presently being built at Mayapur West Bengal India that will house the Vedic Planetarium opening in 2016.
It is similar because in Sadupta dasa’s Book, Vedic Cosmology, he explains how the Moon is closer to the Earth Planet than the Sun, although on many occasions on morning walks and lectures, Srila Prabhupada has said that the Sun is closer and to arrive at the Moon one must first travel past the Sun.
The other so called hypothesis is the Helocentric design where the Sun is the center of the Solar system meaning all the Planets orbit the Sun which is the present day scientific explanation that Srila Prabhupada rejected.
As devotee of the Gaudiya teachings and ISKCON we only accept the shastric explanation given to us by Srila Prabhupada who clearly says the Geocentric system is the correct one as the photo attempts to show.
Actually the Helocentric theory is relatively new, even the Catholic Church officially believes in the Geocentric system as does the teachings of Islam.
Only due to modern science and the beginning of the so called age of ‘Enlightenment’ in the 17th Century did modern man start questioning all major Religious teachings of the Geocentric system however, as devotees we fully accept the authority of the Srimad Bhagavatam given to us by Srila Prabhupada meaning we accept the Geocentric model only.
As from 2016 when the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium is finished, the Geocentric System will become more known to the world and to many devotees who have not studied the 5th Canto of the Srimad Bhagavatam in detail.
This will definitely create more interest in the Geocentric design and the Krsna Conscious Movement and without a doubt it will create great interest where many documentaries around the world on this subject will bring many millions of people to Mayapur.
Of course modern science will challenge the Srimad Bhagavatam while other will come to accept the great wisdom of the Vedas and Srila Prabhupada’s Book that are found today in most languages around the world.
So get ready for 2016 when the wisdom of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium in Mayapur comes on line for the whole world to see, bringing in a new (or very old) area of cosmology to the world. Hare Krsna all glorious to Srila Prabhupada
