This is perhaps my favorite type of preaching, it’s very intriguing. Some “scholars” would have you believe that the Surya Siddhanta was copied from the Greeks, and that the Puranic account represents the earlier mythological description. This is all part of their Aryan invasion theory. It actually happened the other way around. The siddhantas were an integral part of the Vedic tradition, the Bhagavatam and other Puranas describe the subtle realms beyond gross sense perception. The Greeks actually got their astronomy from the Vedas. And it would seem that modern cosmology is a rediscovery of Vedic concepts like heliocentric theory and bindu sphota. Hare Krishna!
