In Srimad Bhagavatam 5th Canto Chapter 23 translated by AC Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada

The Distances to the Planets -Higher Realms

For Janaloka we add 160,000,000 miles to Maharloka which gives us 271,224,902 and divide b...y 952,530,892.3 = .284741318

Then multiply by Venus at it's lowest circumference, which is 9,202,104,012 and divide by ((4,000,000,000 X Pi) / 360) This tells us that Janaloka is at 75.06375149 degrees

For Tapoloka we add 640,000,000 miles to Janaloka and divide by 952,530,892.3 = .956635537

Now multiply by circumference for constellations which is 2,389,453,778 = 2,285,836,398

Now divide by universe divided by 360 or

(4,000,000,000 X Pi ) / 360 ) = 65.48438913 which means Tapoloka is at 65 degrees

(4,000,000,000 X Pi ) / 360 ) = 65.48438913 which means Tapoloka is at 65 degrees

When we say that now we know what is the degree we can know circumference by multiplying the circumference of the universe by cos (75.06375149 or by cos (65.48438913 respectively for Janaloka and Tapoloka which gives us 3,238,908,200 for Janaloka and 5,214,304,353 for Tapoloka

Distances to the Planets by Mayesa dasa

Part Thirteen

Perhaps the degrees at which I have placed Janaloka and Tapoloka should be reversed but we shall plunge ahead so that we can get a sense of the whole system, then any problems can be adjusted.

For Satyaloka we add 960,000,000 miles to Tapoloka and divide by 952,530,892.3 = 1.964476866

Now let us multiply by 1,455,665,606 which is Jupiter's highest circumference = 2,859,621,408

Now divide by ((4,000,000,000 X Pi) / 360 ) = 81.92211885 degrees

One who is mathematician and is following along will understand that we are working with what is called "process of elimination" This whole system will have to be further refined after we have it all in place.

Finally we come to Vaikuntha. For Vaikuntha we add 209,600,000 and divide by 952,530,892.3 = 2.184522223

We can know what is the universe's exterior circumference. That is the size of universe (4,000,000,000 X Pi) plus the 8 shells. The first shell is 10,000,000,000 miles The second is ten times that and third ten times that ,etc

This is 29 X 10,000,000,000 X 2 X Pi plus (4,000,000,000 X Pi ) = 1,834,690,110,000

Now we divide by 360 and multiply by 89.9999999999 or even 90 degrees gives us 458,672,527.4

Now we divide by 360 and multiply by 89.9999999999 or even 90 degrees gives us 458,672,527.4

Now divide by our decimal gives us 209,964,688.2 which is circumference of some planetary body at 80.38164599 degree of the universe.

We saw that Satyaloka was at 81.9 degrees-probably these two numbers should be the same. Now a mathematician can understand how he could work backwards from Vaikuntha to shore up the numbers.

Text 9 how Maharloka is above Dhruvaloka and then comes Janaloka and then Tapoloka then Satyaloka,etc.

Now we shall calculate these and diagram.

From now on I shall be adding the cumulative numbers in a different way to save time. it should be clear what I am doing. For example if the suns axle is 31,500,000 plus 800,000 for the moon then the next calculation ( for th...e constellations will add in 2,400,000 for the constellations on top of 31,500,000 and 800,000 )

Maharloka

We begin with Maharloka which is said to be 80,000,000 miles above DhruvalokaFormula

Axle of sun plus added numbers is 141,100,000 Bhuhulasva plus added numbers 773,084,901.3 / 360 = 2,147,458.059/ 141,100,000 / 2,147,458.059 = 65.70559057

We must now use the circumference of the universe. That circumference is 12566370610

(4,320,000 X 12,566,370,610) / ( 1,577,917,828 + 4,320,000 ) / 65.70559057 =506,754.1533

This is the circumference of Maharloka.

Maharloka stretches from one side of the universe to the other. Is it a planet or a region of planets?

5,067,541,533 / universe = .403262142

That is cosine 66.21773023

Janaloka

Formula

axle plus for Janaloka is 933,084,901.3

Bhuvulasva plus is 301,100,000 / 360 = 2,591,902.504

301,100,000 / 2,591,902.504 = 116.1694931

Now (4,320,000 X 12,566,370,610) / ( 1,577,917,828 + 4,320,000 ) / 116.1694931 = 295,345.0885

2,953,450,885 / universe = .235028154

That is cosine 76.40671764

Tapoloka

Formula

Axle plus = 941,100,000

bhuvulasva plus = 1,573,084,901

1,573,084,901 / 360 = 4,369,680.281

941,100,000 / 4,369,680.281 = 215.3704481

Now (4,320,000 X Universe) / ( 1,577,917,828 + 4,320,000 ) / 215.370 4481

= 159304.3385

1593043385 / Universe = .126770365

That is cosine 82.71699636

Satyaloka

Formula

axle plus = 1,901,100,000

bhuvulasva plus = 1,873,084,901

1,873,084,901 / 360 = 5,203,013.615

1,901,100,000 / 5,203,013.615 = 365.3843985

Now (4,320,000 X universe) / ( 1,577,917,828 + 4,320,000 ) / 365.3843985

= 93,901.35256/

939,013,525.6 / universe = .0747243

That is cosine 85.71461859

Formula

Vaikuntha

We must now use the circumference of the universe plus the universal shell. That number is 3,125,663,706... ---- From Mayesa Dasa
