Dating of mahabharata and ramayana New zealand phone sex
If any of the events in Mahabharata really happened, then a post-Buddha date can be ignored because historical records from that period are available.This leaves two dates: either the events happened in the 2000 – 1500 BCE period which was immediately after the Mature Harappan period or it happened after 1100 BCE.As the dates are pushed back into the Early Harappan period, it also has to reconcile with the material goods present during that period.
To keep this in context, remember that the Mature Harappan Period was from 2500 – 1900 BCE.
This 900 BCE date is based on archaeology and other ways of analyzing the text and astronomical data reveal other dates.
If archaeology suggests a date of 900 BCE, how do we reconcile the fact that astronomical data suggests an earlier date?
Quite a number of efforts have been made by various scholars to find the date of the Mahabharata War.
Various methods have been used, using historical references in the Puranas, language conditions, archaeological findings etc. Vartak from Pune carefully studied the astronomical references in the Mahabharata and corroborated the same with historical and archeological evidences. Vartak are more accurate than the various other dates propounded by other scholars who have been carried away by the statements made by Western scholars.
