Vedas, Vedanga Jyotisha, Surya Siddhanta are known as "apaurusheyas" meaning that their author and their period is unknown. No serious attempt seems to have been made to determine the age of these "apaurusheyas".

In this short paper, an attempt has been made by the author to determine VEDIC AGE using Equinoxes and their precession. He relied heavily on available evidence in Rig-Veda, Vedanga Jyotisha, Brahma Siddhanta, Surya Siddhanta etc. and quoted extensively from these sources to support his contentions.
