# Mount Meru and the numbers 54 – 108

### Mount Meru

The Staircase of Mount Meru or the ‘Meru Prastaara’ is generally considered to be the Triangle of Pascal (named after its ‘inventor’ Blaise Pascal). However, the number pattern that forms Pascal’s Triangle was known well before Blaise Pascal’s time. It was considered as the primordial Mound of Creation by the greatest civilisations. In ancient India, this numerical arrangement was known as Mount Meru, in Persia as the Khayyam Triangle, in China as the Yang Hui Triangle,… For the ancients, Pascal’s Triangle or Mount Meru represented the numerical matrix of the Universe.

The 10th dimension of Mount Meru

In Pascal’s Triangle, based on the decimal number system, it is remarkable that we find the number Pi in the 10th dimension. In order to find it, we have to subtract the binomial coefficients instead of adding them. In this way, we get 252 – 210 = 42 in the central axis of the 10 th row and 462 – 330 = 132 in the 11 th row. Both numbers, 132 and 42, yield the number Pi when divided by each other: 132/42 = 3,1428 (Pi). We know that the number Pi is the mathematical constant which creates resonance between the circumference and the radius of a circle. Pascal’s ‘Ka’ Triangle

The subtraction of binomial coefficients in Mount Meru yields a so-called ‘negative’ Mount Meru: Interestingly, this “Pi portal” is also found in sacred geometry because when we draw a circle with a diameter of 9 units and a square with a diagonal of 10 units, we see that both have the same circumference. Using sacred geometry, we can draw a circle with a diameter of 9 units and a square with a diagonal of 10 units.

As we can see in the diagram above, the 9-1-1-geometry yields a very simple system to square the circle, one of the mathematical enigmas that occupied mystics and sages since time immemorial. Squaring the circle symbolizes the universal resonance between the two complementary forces in the universe. The diagram above shows how a square with a diagonal of 10 has the same circumference as a circle with a diameter of 9, thus reflecting the same Pi-resonance as in Pascal’s Triangle’s 9th and 10th dimensions!

### The numbers 54 and 108

Each planet has its own breathing tempo, its distinctive frequency which determines the bio-energy rhythms of all that exists on its surface. This tempo depends on the planet’s orbit and its period of revolution around its sun.

Today we know that the ‘breathing rate’ of the Earth is the frequency of seismic waves. On Earth, the lowest possible seismic wave is indeed 54 minutes. In other words, 5.4 or 54 is a key moment which dictates the energy impulse to life on the Earth. Interestingly, 54 is the half of 108. The diameter of the Sun is about 108 times that of the diameter of Earth. The average distance between the Earth and the Sun is 108 times the Sun's diameter. The average distance from the Earth to the Moon is 238,800 miles, about 108 times the Moon's diameter.

Whereas 54 might be the frequency of Mother Earth, we know that also Father Sky has its own frequencies, which are called the Schumann Resonances (SR). SR’s are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the atmospheric cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. At every second, some 100 lightning discharges touch the surface of the Earth, which submerge the planet in a constant hum. The fundamental Schumann Resonance is 7.83 Hz. Interestingly, when we divide this 7.83 Hz by 5.4, we get 1.45 Hz, a frequency which is known today as the psychoacoustic baseline frequency that induces the tri-thalamic synchronization of the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary gland with the human heartbeat. Knowing this, the Great Pyramid of Giza and perhaps many other ancient temples based on Vedic Science might have been built as an instrument to balance the fundamental Schumann frequency of the Earth’s atmosphere (7.83 Hz) and the fundamental frequency of the Earth itself (5.4 Hz) into the third basic tri-thalamic human heartbeat frequency of 1.45 Hz since the base length of the Pyramid is 756 ft, which, divided by 54, gives 14. We know that 756 divided 14 times by the golden number gives 1.45 Hz. This means that 1.45 Hz functions as a harmonizing frequency between the cosmic Yin (Earth/Seismic wave) and Yang (Heaven/Schumann Resonance) energies.

Looking to Mount Meru, we see that the number 54 is a basic number in the 10th dimension of the ‘negative’ Mount Meru.

### The Churning of the Ocean of Milk

Probably the most relevant Vedic story which confirms even more its intrinsic correlation with Pascal’s Triangle and the 10th dimension is the story of Sagara Manthan or the Churning of the Ocean of Milk. Once Indra, the God of Lightning who lives on top of Mount Meru, approached Lord Vishnu because he lost his Kingdom. Vishnu advises Indra to churn the Ocean of Milk with the help of the Devas (Gods) and the Asuras (Demons) in order to produce the immortality-granting amrita so that He and the Devas can reclaim their kingdom. To churn the ocean, they need a churning stick (Mandhara) and a rope (the serpent Vasuki). By working together, they succeed in producing the Amrita and the Devas became immortal again. However, Lord Vishnu tricks the Asuras to enable the Devas to reclaim their Kingdom back from them.

Looking with a scientific look to this story, we can see that this is not just a mythical story. Many have proposed that it contains great spiritual knowledge if one is able to distinguish the hidden sacred symbolism. Obviously important spiritual lessons can be learned if we translate the ‘Gods and Demons’ by our own positive and negative aspects, ‘Immortality’ by the liberation through spiritual practice, the ‘Ocean of Milk’ by our mind or consciousness, the ‘Serpent’ by the delusions of the material world and the ‘Mandhara’ churning stick by concentration of the mind. As to the number of Asuras and Devas, there are no clues found in either three of the Vedic works in which the story is told. Usually, the Devas are believed to be 33 in number (perhaps reflecting the 33 resonances of planetary infrasound? - (see image of the squared circle above).

However, there is one ancient Vedic architectural masterpiece which clearly answers this question. In the South Gate of the Cambodjan Angkor Thom, we see a causeway on each side of which are 54 stone figures engaged in the Churning of the Ocean of Milk. On the left side of the causeway, 54 Devas pull the head of the Vasuki Serpent, while on the right side, 54 Asuras pull the Serpent’s tail in the opposite direction. In this same myth, the body of the Serpent is wrapped around the central axis of Mount Meru. We know now that Mount Meru was Pascal’s Triangle and that the diagonals of PT count up to form the Fibonacci number series which in turn embodies the serpent-like Golden Spiral. Excitingly, when we look to Pascal’s Triangle, we clearly see the numerical code which is hidden in this famous Hindu story. As I proposed before, the outer edge of Pascal’s Triangle, existing of numbers 1, are symbolized by the primordial element of water or milk, whence the connotation “the Ocean of Milk”. The churning stick (Mandhara) as the central axis of Mount Meru obviously is the central axis of Pascal’s Triangle. The Serpent or churning rope, then, represents the diagonal Fibonacci sequences found in Pascal’s Triangle and which are wrapped around Mount Meru. The most interesting fact, however, only becomes visible when we add the negative Pascal’s Triangle in such a way that its 10th-dimension represents the ground–level of Mount Meru and where the two triangles culminate in the number Pi.
