It became so common for a curious mind to find the golden ratio in the famous paintings done by Davinci or Michael Angelo. The golden ratio is a miraculous proportion in the sacred geometry that can be found anywhere in nature. The golden ratio is actually derived from the Fibonacci sequence. However, it is also well-known that the ancient Indian Mathematicians like Sage Pingala and Aryabhatta long before wrote about the Fibonacci sequence.

When we observe the sculptures in the great temples of India, be it the Kailasanathar Temple or The Brihadeshwara Temple or The Ramappa Temple; the structures basically have the exact ratio of 1:1.618, which is the Golden Ratio. If we observe the placement of the Sanctum Sanctorum was not coincidental but purely mathematical and the ancients strictly followed the rule of third, which is the golden ratio in placing the central deity where the golden ratio leads to infinity.

Just as we know that our ancients were familiar with sound technology, they’re also very well familiar with exceptional math. Even in literature, we can find the golden ratio embedded, that when Pythagoras came to India to learn Math techniques, he studied Carnatic Music and found this wonderful ratio. With this, he made the Harp to demonstrate the accuracy and harmony of music that occur when diligently embedded with the Golden Ratio derived from Vedic Math.
