A brief introduction to those involved in Vedic Mathematics


Tirthaji Portrait

Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960)

Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krsna Tirtha Maharaja was the the Shankaracarya (major religious leader) of Govardhana Math Puri. He is said to have reconstructed the ancient system of Vedic Mathematics from certain Sanskrit texts. All that is left of his work is an introductory text called 'Vedic Mathematics'.

Vera's speciality is teaching young learners and those who have difficulty with understanding arithmetic. She has written her first teacher's manual "Pebble Maths" and is shown here with one of her very happy students, Ella (who went from the bottom of her class, to the top in a matter of 3 months). http://www.pebblemaths.org/

  Dr. Brian Mc Enery holds a PhD in Computational Physics from University College Cork, and has been conducting research into strategies for presenting vedic mathematics through animation based software platforms for the past 15 years. During this time he has made presentations on vedic mathematics at all levels throughout the educational system in Ireland, including presentations to government agencies. Presently he has initiated the Core Computational Project amongst the aims of which is to develop a software engine for presenting vedic computational knowledge on a variety of platforms.
Clive Middleton
is the Web Master for this site. Hopes at some point to spend some time mastering the techniques of Vedic Mathematics, rather than sorting the technical side of this web site. Currently he is helping to develop an Internet based course on Vedic Mathematics based on the material written by Kenneth Williams, for this web site.
