AN IN-DEPTH STUDY OF NAKLANKI GEETA
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle collider, the largest, most complex experimental facility ever built, and the largest single machine in the world.

“All fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me no closer to answer the question, what are photons (light particles)? Of course every rascal thinks he knows the answer, but he is deluding himself.” — Albert Einstein, quoted in Raymond W. Lam Seasonal Affective Disorder and Beyond, 1998.
In the conclusion of my previous article, Concepts of Modern Cosmology and Astrophysics in Two Ismaili Ginans, Choghadia and Mul Gayatri, I had asked a question: What was before the BIG BANG?
The Hadron Collider research at CERN, Switzerland is promising to reveal the deepest secrets of our universe. Hot topics of science today are the search for Dark Matter, a Theory of Every Thing (TOE) which involves the reconciliation of the Quantum Theory with the Theory of Relativity, and the State of the Universe before the Big Bang. Is it possible that some of our ancient ginans have answers that Hadron Collider Research is trying to come up with?
The focus of our study is a Granth, Naklanki Geeta,  composed by Syad Imam Shah around 1400 CE. Our study will reveal that this ancient Granth, composed when the Incas Civilization and the Temples at Ankor Wat had begun to crumble and Europe was shaking off the vertigo of Dark Ages and entering the Renaissance period, is one of the most scientifically advanced and compact ancient document, besides the Ikhwa-al safa (The Brethren of Purity, 900 CE.). It touches on all ideas of Hadron Collider Research presented above. But before we delve in to it, I present below a table that puts Naklanki Geta on a comparative timescale of Scientific Development in the West over last 1000 years (see Table 1) as well as provide a brief introduction to the ginan.
- I shall be presenting this article in three parts beginning with this one which is divided into the following sections:
- The above will conclude Part I. Then in Part II, to be published at a later date, I shall deal with:
- Finally, in another sequel I will discuss the nature of Light, origin of “consciousness and understanding” and nature of divine ecstasy.
Date and Place of Birth
Syad Imam Shah
Composer of hymns and poems of Khoja Ismaili Origin
b. 1430 CE,
Uuch Shariff, India.
Two hundred years ahead of the Western astronomers and mathematicians, he provided the basis for calculation of the relative speed of earth and sun’s motions and also ideas on multiple Universes, nature of photon, etc (see text for Summary of his contributions)
Proposed the revolutionary theory that the earth and other planets revolved around the sun.
Until this time the Catholic Church held the view that the earth was the center of the Universe. Afraid of persecution by the Church, his thesis was not published until after his death.
Inventor of the telescope and confirmed Copernicus’s thesis of sun being the center around which the planets revolved
