Why any number raised to the power of zero is always zero like 10 or 100 is always 1.

reply: Please sit down.

By to day I have completed a mathematical work of about thousand pages, and in an hour’s time the setting of the book shall be completed.

01:17

Commentary on Vedic Mathematics of 10 pages is given in 600 pages and 30 pages in 1000 pages Now tell me an example:

01:28

Q’ner : 100 X 0 = 0, 1000 = 1, How this can be explained ?

02:12

Please sit down.

02:14

Zero and One are base numbers. We have written 8-10 books on Zero and One .

02:29

What in English is called Binary System, we have named as ‘ Dvayank Paddhati.’ – Zero and One.

02:39

The entire mathematics is built on Zero and One, whose origin is endless. Let us see the example:

02:49

10 -1 = 9, 9 -1 = 8, 8-1= 7, 7-1= 6, 6 – 1 = 5, 5 – 1 = 4, 4 – 1 = 3, 3 – 1 = 2, 2 – 1 = 1, and 1 – 1 = 0

03:15

Therefore 0 + 1 = 1.

03:18

To transform Zero to One, it is necessary to use One, Is’nt it?

03:35

So to make Zero to One, we made use of One.

03:39

So we treat Zero and One are eternal numbers without a beginning.

03:52

We have named them as Sannikat Nirvishesh (the closest unspecified) One is Zero.

04:05

The closest specified of Zero is One.

04:10

Hence both numbers are eternal and without a beginning ,as in Vedanta, like the Prakruti and Purusha Duo.

04:22

prakṛtiṅ puruṣaṅ caiva viddhyanādī ubhāvapi.[ Gita 13-20]

04:25

These two are eternal . Similarly the power of Zero is One.

04:30

The fundamental aspect of One is Zero.

04:33

When you go on and on at the end what remains is either Zero or One.

04:40

There by raising the power we got One and zero plus zero, zero minus zero, and zero multiplied by zero, the resultant is zero ,

04:53

we have given procedure for arriving at the result in all these cases.

04:57

When One is subtracted from One , the result is zero.

05:02

Any number is subtracted from the same number the resultant number is zero.

05:11

If zero is subtracted from zero the resultant number is zero.

05:16

Why One is known as One ?

05:19

Because it is one number greater than Zero its name is One.

05:23

Why two is known as Two? Because it is two numbers greater than Zero.

05:28

So, Why 2 – 2 = 0 ?

05:32

Because from two it is two numbers behind, hence Zero.

05:38

In this way both zero and one are primary numbers where there remains zero and here by raising in power remains one.

05:48

The basic fundamentalism is expressive in these two numbers.

05:52

It was also written in Mudgal Purana – the name of Single-toothed Ganesha is Ekadanta –

05:59

Meaning of Eka is Maya, the illusion and meaning of Danta is Brahma.

06:04

It means shoonya ie. Zero. The whole mathematics is based on the relation of One and Zero.

06:11

The name of the substantially unspecified One is Zero.

06:17

The specified Zero is One. Both are two dimensions of One.

06:19

From the aspect of counting which number occupies the first place? One.

06:24

But the place to to start with is Zero.

06:29

Write down numbers from 10 to 19 – 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16,17,18, 19.

06:35

Now when you start writing the numbers in units , you have – 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

06:44

It reflects the same when you take 20 – 29, 30 – 39 and hence 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 are the fundamental base numbers.

07:04

You will find Zero is placed first in the numbering of first ten numbers. But 10 is not a base number.

07:08

In the place of Units is Zero, and in tens is 1, then only we get the number 10.

07:21

In tens and hundreds, the the position is either front or back of a base number.

07:32

The fundamental base numbers are one to nine only.

07:36

But now the question is from 1 to 9 , there is no place for Zero.

07:40

But when we write 10, Zero makes its first appearance there.

07:45

In the number 10 , the fundamental base numbers are 1 and 0.

07:52

But how it happened that zero appears in ‘Units’ space ?

07:56

Write 101 or what ever, be it tens or hundreds , the base numbers appear left and right, and hence tens and hundreds are formed.

08:08

Hence it should be understood by location of place zero and by the aspect of count one are first numbers.

08:17

The same distinction can be seen in Devanagari Akshar[letters] as well.

08:24

Where do you find Am [अं] in Devanagari script? अ ई उ ऋ ल्री ए ऐ ओ औ अं.

08:33

Leave the long sounding आ, ई , the letters look thus: अ ई उ ऋ ल्री ए ऐ ओ औ अं.

08:40

In the 10th place you will find अ with a dot over it, Don’t you find ?

08:47

Here in the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 , you will find in the 10th place you will find 0 in the place of Units and 1 in the place of Tens.

08:57

In the Mathematics of ancient times , dot[.] was used to denote the place of Zero.

09:03

Now it is shifted above the the letter अ [अं]. When it appears on the left of One , became Zero, on right it became Ten.

09:13

As we see Zero in Ten in the tenth place ,so also in the Devanagari script where actually the ‘dot’ is found.

09:26

In the tenth place. Does the ‘dot’ make anything specific or unspecific when we write it ?

09:32

Before अ there is the dot.

09:37

When it is unspecified, it lacks significance.

09:47

When it is specified by something its significance is enhanced, and improved in quality.

09:50

The letters अ आ ई shall not be accomplished without the use of[.] above.

09:56

Similarly without the existence of zero, even one can not be proven. Even, one with attribute proves its capability by taking the shelter of attribute-less.

10:08

Now just think a while.

10:12

We have 10 – In the place Units we find 0, and in the place of Tens, we have 1. Now let us reverse the order, we find 1 in the place of Units and 0 in the place of Tens.

10:25

What is interesting here ?

10:27

1 followed by 0 makes it 10. If you remove 0 , what remains is only 1.

10:36

By keeping 0 after 1, the value increased by 9.

10:44

But if you keep 0 left of 1, how much value is reduced from 10 because of this shift ? The one which reduces the value is Bhava Padarth or Abhava Padarth ?

10:58

Or in other words the one that which either increases or decreases a value can only be termed Bhava Padarth.

11:07

Therefore ‘Zero’ is only Bhava padarth , primary number.

11:09

But when the specific condition ends , there cannot be any number below Zero.

11:18

And whatever numbers that exist after 1 are the functions of the primary number in the place of Units either left or right.

11:26

Hence fact establishes that the Primary Number is Zero to One only.
