Pi Day

Happy Pi Day 2016.
Let’s spare a few moments for Ramanujams work on pi on this auspicious day! He gave a practical way of calculating “pi” using a ruler and compass only. It was quite an achievement of those times when people thought circles and spheres (involving pi) symbolized heaven and the descent of the spirit to the material plane. The squares and cubes symbolized the lifting up of material perfection to the divine. Pi is thought to have this transcending quality!
