Guide to Tutorials

Vedic Maths is based on sixteen sutras or principles. These principles are general in nature and can be applied in many ways. These tutorials give examples of simple applications of the sutras, to give a feel for how the Vedic Maths system works. They are based on the work of Kenneth Williams and are a work in progress. For a more complete coverage of the basic uses of the sutras, we recommend you study one of the books available from our Bookstore or a DVD set

Original Tutorials (Java based Apps)

As our site usage statistics indicate that some people are still using older operating systems and browsers, we have retained a copy of the original tutorials for them to use, as their browsers do not support HTML5 functionality required by the updated tutorials.

Java based Tutorials use the original Tutorials you will need to make sure the following requirements are met:-

You are running on a Desktop/Laptop computer
With a Browser that still supports the NPAPI Browser Plugin (i.e. supports Java Applets)
With java installed (a pre JDK 9 version)
With an exception setup in the Configure java Security tab for the original Tutorials sub-domain (as the Applets are not certified).

Instructions for setting up java, can be found here.

N.B. the Browser Plugin used to run the Java Applets in our original Tutorials, has become deprecated due to security issues. Therefore most browser manufacturers are removing support for this plugin from their browsers. So we due not expect the original Tutorials to work after 2016. Google Chrome has already removed support in Septemeber 2015. If any browser works it will be Internet Explorer, as support has already been removed, but the Tutorial Applets still appeared to work in Internet Explorere 11. The technical details of which browsers and versinos of Java still support this version of the Tutorials can be found here (make sure you read the Deprecation section as well as the Browser Support section).
