Surya Siddhanta
The Surya Siddhanta is one of the earliest doctrine or tradition (siddhanta) in archeo-astronomy of the Hindus. Its original version is by an unknown author. It describes the archeo-astronomy theories, principles and methods of the ancient Hindus. This siddhanta is supposed to be the knowledge that the Sun god gave to an Asura called Maya. Asuras were enemies of the Deva, the Gods of Hindus. Asuras were believed to be residents of the nether worlds.

Surya Siddhanta
Le Surya Siddhanta est un traité d’astronomie traditionnel indien, vieux de plus de ans et attribué au Mahamuni Mayan. Il forme la base des calendriers hindou et bouddhiste. Les mathématiciens et astronomes postérieurs comme Aryabhata et Varahamihira y firent souvent référence : ainsi dans son ouvrage Pancha siddhantika, Varahamihira l’oppose à quatre autres traités : il s'agit, outre les Paitamaha Siddhantas (plus ou moins identiques au « classique » Védanga Jyotisha), des siddhantas Paulisha et Romaka (directement inspirés par l'astronomie hellénistique) et du Vasishta Siddhanta.

Surya-Siddhanta
Surya-Siddhanta (Sanskrit) A celebrated astronomical and cosmogonical work of ancient India of enormous antiquity. This work shows marvelous mathematical skill and comes very close to the modern time periods of astronomy that the most skilled mathematicians and astronomers have determined. It also deals with yugas in their various lengths, divisions of time itself into infinitesimal quantities, and general astronomical subjects, including not only the time periods of the sun, moon, and planets, but also eclipses, seasons of the year, etc.
The Surya-Siddhanta states that it was dictated more than two million years ago, towards the end of the krita yuga (golden age) by the sun himself, through a projected solar representative, to the great sage Asuramaya who wrote down the revelation. From the commencement of our kali yuga to the end of the satya yuga is 2,164,965 years ago. The Surya-Siddanta was therefore a very late Atlantean work or an early work of the fifth root-race, for though the so-called Aryan or fifth root-race was already nearly 1,728,000 years old at the time of the writing of this work, the race was still in its early periods, and was still practically a part of the Atlantean civilization; hence Asuramaya has been called an Atlantean astronomer. The fifth root-race has been a race sui generis for only about a million years from our present time.
