Energy Generation through Vedas  

 Law of Equivalene of Mass Energy

The law of equicalence of mass energy is coded severally in the Vedic texts. For example, RV. (2.11.1), observes in this regard as follows:

rudh havam indra m riaya

syma te dvane vasnm.

im hi tvmrjo vardhayanti

vasyava sindhavo na karanta.

Indra (electric energy), hear (my) invocation; dont be displeased: may we be worthy of the gift of your treasures. The energy is catalyst to prosperity, and is not depleted like flow of river.

Here the energy is described to be the augmentor of physical prosperity. It is also described as non-depleting which is nothing else but points out to the principle of equivalence of mass energy.

There is an interesting story about the creation of charged particles in atapatha Brhmaa (

Agni (Energy) was earlier of four types. First one chosen for Yaja (conversion into mass form) fled. Second and third also fled. Then Agni we know hid inside water (matter particles), but gods found him and took him out of water (matter particles) forcefully. Agni spitted on waters saying you could not provide me protection. From that three ptya gods came out-ekata, dvita and trita. They started living with Indra.

Here first three agnis represent the 75% of mass energy in light space. Fourth agni represent 25% of mass energy used in obsever space for the creation of universe. Hinding of agni in water symbolises equivalence of mass (matter) energy in observer space. The second part of this kaik describes the formation of charged particles. Ekata means one, dvita means two third and trita means one third. These refer to particles carrying unit, two third, and one third charge. They are called ptya meaning electrically charged. Staying with Indra means these particles give rsie to electrical force as they are electrically charged.
