Nevada (US), Dec 2 (ANI): Possible source of sedimentary material that became Vishnu Schist in Grand Canyon (Arizona, USA) include Australia, North China, and Antarctica, suggests a new research.
Researchers of University of New Mexico (USA), University of Arizona (USA), and University of Adelaide (Australia) presented results from a detailed geochronologic investigation of one of the oldest rock units of the Grand Canyon, the Vishnu Schist. Their data reveal a large population of minerals that range from one to two billion years older than the rock itself. This research appears in the December issue of Geology, a monthly publication of the Geological Society of America published since 1973.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that some formations in world famous Grand Canyon National Park were named as Shiva Temple, Krishna Shrine, Vishnu Temple, Rama Shrine, Brahma Temple (7851 feet), and Hindu Amphitheater.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, admiring the fascination of West with Hindu names, urged it also to explore the rich philosophical thought which Hinduism offered. (ANI)
