What is the source of this sloka which mentions gravity?

aakrishta-shaktishcha mahi tvayaa yat

kha-stham guru svaabhimukam svashaktyaa/

aakrishyate tat patatiti khe

same samantat kva patatviyam khe//

(Reference : Jnani-Guru, Paramahansa Nigamannanda Sarasvati, Sarasvata Math, page 7).

meaning: The earth has attraction-power and therefore it attracts heavy things from up above. So the things fall on the earth. Otherwise what falls what on void?

  • Ok so it is not Janani (mother) right? also can you add the translation too so that others will know that it is related to gravity? – Rickross Mar 6 at 16:20
  • This is only a partial and maybe incorrect translation. For example, the first line says: 'Mahi (Earth) obtained the attraction power from you'. – user1952500 Mar 6 at 18:35
  • @user1952500 no. mahi is in samvodhana – commonman Mar 6 at 18:37
  • I was referring to tvaya yat which means from you. Do you have a prose order for this? – user1952500 Mar 6 at 18:54

    @user1952500 'tvaya yat' can never mean 'from you'. Do u know sanskrit at all :) – commonman Mar 6 at 18:56
