With tremendous reverence, I bow before the sun, who moves 2,202 yojanas in half a nimesha, stated Sayana, a 14th-century Vedic scholar. A yojana is 9 miles long, whereas a nimesha is 16/75 of a second. As a result, 2,202 yojanas multiplied by 9 miles multiplied by 75/8 names equals 185,794 miles per second or 2,99,000 kilometers per second. That is amazingly close to the true scientifically confirmed' speed of 3,00,000 kilometers per second. It is commonly assumed that his source was none other than the Vedas.
