According to Modren Astronomy and Science , we know that the earth’s orbit around the sun is not a circle and is slightly elliptical. Therefore, the distancebetween the earth and the sun varies throughout the year.
At its nearest point on the ellipse that is the earth’s orbit around the sun, the earth is 91,445,000 miles (147,166,462 kms) from the sun. This point in the earth’s orbit is known as Periapsis (perihelion) and it occurs around January 3.
The earth is farthest away from the sun around July 3 when it is 94,555,000 miles (152,171,522 km) from the sun. This point in the earth’s orbit is called Apoapsis (aphelion). The average distance from the earth to the sun is 92,955,807 miles (149,597,870.691 km).
Distance Between Sun & Earth Mentioned in Hanuman Chalisa :
“! जुग सहस्त्र योजन पर भानु, लील्यो ताहिमधुर फल जानू !”
1 Juug = 120001 Sahastra= 10001 Yojan = 8 MilesThus12000 X 1000 X 8 = 96,000,000 miles1 mile = 1.6 kms

Hanuman challisa was written by Goswami Tulasidas (born 15th century) in Awadhi language who belongs to 15th century. which means the distance between Sun and earth has been calculated much more accurately than the 17th century scientists even before 2 centuries.
The Questions like “how Tulsidas calculated this distance” or “how he is able to know about this distance” are not limited but “What are the advanced technologies our ancient ancestors used, regarding which we have no clues “. We also have to observe that the people of that age have more Talent, knowledge, capabilities and much more advanced technology that is beyond the imagination of our present day technologies.
History is not presented to us in a way it should be. There are still many elements and precious jewels of information that are being kept hidden from us. Ocean of history is before you, dive in and dig the jewels out. The gleaming beam of knowledge from these jewels will not only enrich our country but will also keep bestowing direction to our future generations. We hope that this post will help you to understand the significance of our ancient principles, technology and culture.
