Dear Sir/Ma`am, 
Hinduism believes in a flat earth. In fact even Buddhism and some other religions. 

Talking about Vedas and Hinduism, it is believed that the scriptures were narrated by god himself and it is not possible that they can be untrue. 

How is it possible to believe in a flat earth in today's time ? Since we know that the earth is not flat, that part of the Vedas seem false. So does that not mean that the entire Vedas is false ? 

Please send some knowledge with regard to this. 

Thank You

Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

PAMHO.

Where it is mentioned in our scriptures that the earth is flat? It is not mentioned that earth is flat at all. In fact, vedas were the only text talking about a round earth even when the English/ westerners believed that earth is flat. The proof is - the hindi word for geography is "bhugol" - bhu means earth and gol means round. It is not bhutakth - bhu means earth and takth means flat. 

Where do you come up with these things?

Haribol,

Your servant,

Radha Rasamayi DD

Flat? No. The Vedic "geography" is complex and a bit confusing, but not ignorant or naive. It's actually pretty sophisticated.

hare krishna. 

Sorry for some false assumptions. It does not say the earth is flat. But as pointed out by  Darryl Eschete, the vedic geography is a bit complex and confusing.

Anybody who can give some more knowledge on Jambudvipa and Mt meru, will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

It is the Quran and the Bible which very clearly states that the earth is flat. The Vedic scriptures clearly state that the earth is a sphere.

The below is unique and the truth.

Is earth flat or spherical ?

Contemporary science/textbooks describe earth resembling a sphere which rotates around Sun in solar system along with other planets like jupiter, mercury etc. 

Above is one of the best examples of systematic generation and propagation of ignorance by controllers of society in the worst form of governance called democracy where the controllers derive greatest power in keeping the masses enslaved to the system of ignorance while seemingly providing them a means of livelihood.

Earth is definitely not spherical as textbooks/ pictures represent. 

Vedic scriptures describe in detail the bhuloka which is a planetary system resembling a disc.  Vedic cosmology is very complicated because it goes into higher dimensions. But calling earth flat would be over simplification to say the least.

Nonetheless to give some idea of our planetary system kindly see this video

common sense scientific observations & experiences show earth is spherical. Vedic cosmology is in terms of higher dimensions hence can't be understood by us as we & our brains are tiny

Hare Krsna 

If we reject vedic truth given in Srimad Bhagavatam as we and our brains are tiny and go on on to accept common sense "scientific observations" it is unfortunate indeed. 

The right approach would be - Even though our tiny brains cannot verify the vedic concept we accept it as truth because it is coming from a perfect source and reject the "scientific observations" because they inherently carry 4 defects namely - Imperfect senses, tendency to commit errors, cheating propensity & subjected to illusion. 

Hare Krsna
